Emergency Certificate corpora tion headed by former Governor Alfred E Smith to develop this form of emergency currency But the New York clearing house which had already ordered a sub stantial volume printed held its plan in abeyance Some banking authorities ex pressed the opinion that the only way local clearing house issues of scrip could be made readily ac ceptable in distant cities would be through a gvernment guarantee and it was felt tliat a government guarantee on scrip would be the equivalent to a special issue of fed eral currency for which the federal reserve system was already pre pared Use Government Bonds With the GlassSteagall measure enacted a year ago permitting the using of government bonds as back ing for federal reserve notes in place of the previous 60 per cent backing

meeting of payrolls and food purchases was put today before the vast federal reserve system The a direc in the form of new regu lations sent to federal reserve banks by Secretary Woodti of the treasury In a word he told reserve banks they could give currency to members for absolutely necessary purposes in exchange for gold or gold currency Gold Virtually Useless Since President Roosevelts dras tic proclamaton Sunday night the gold the reserve member banks held had been so locked up as to be vir tually useless for currency pur poses Under the new regulations however it may be traded to the reserve banks for currency to carry out the limited operations already approved by Secretary Woodln There were Indications that this new goldcurrency exchange order was to be coupled with an effort to obtain expansion under the Glass Steagall act which became law t year ago Under this act reserve banks were authorized to issue cur rency based on 40 per cent gold and 60 per cent government obligations The old law required the 60 per cent to be supplied by eligible commer cial paper and it was argued that currency expansion under that pro vision would tend to restrict cred by tying up more of that class o paper Wider Utilization Hoped Until President Roosevelt de clared his gold embargo however few banks had taken advantage o S i I DEAN HAS RECOVERY PLAN Favors Partial Guarantee of Deposits Reduction of Gold Dollar IOWA CITY March 8 emergency legislative measures which will positively lead to econo mic recovery were advocated to day in a speech by Dean C A Phil lips of the University of Iowa col lege of commerce Dean Phillips said he favors a partial guarantee of bank deposits up to 90 per cent This should be mandatory for national banks he said and optional for state banks He asserted the results would be to practically force the state banks in to federal supervision thus provid ing unified federal banking control The commerce dean also suggest ed reducing the weight of the gold dollar from 258 grains to approxi mately 15 grains pointing out it would put the dollar on about a par with the English pound sterling He contended that this would increase the demand for United States pro ducts abroad and be the greatest aid to agriculture Dean Phillips who was invited to appear before the senate finance committee recently sent his sug gestions to President Secretary of Treasury Woodin and Secretary of Agriculture Wallace IN THE RADIO WORLD DRAFT PLANS TO EXPAND CURRENCY ConUnued From fuse 1 Roosevelt plans to keep the na tional gold supply safe in vaults until he feels the situation is in hand The views of the busy chief ex ecutive who assumed office laat Saturday noon with the banks of the nation closed were given in formally today by him to news papermen who jammed his office Dressed in blue suit and blue tie Mr Roosevelt appeared cheerfui as ever as he shook hands with each of the correspondents and then parried question and answer with them He ruled out all written ques tions and told the newspapermen he was ready to discuss with them In a familiar way all government prob lems Answers All Questions He said he would not guarantee to answer all questions for various reasons but he did answer all that were put to him today and almost without exception these related to the trying domestic economic situ ation Mr Roosevelt however did not permit direct quotation He made It plain that as a basis of sound currency he plans to see that the government does not go any farther into debt He has not yet started his mes sage for congress and he does not expect it to be ready until shortly before noon tomorrow when It will be sent to Capitol Hill Mr Roosevelt declined to discuss whether the United States was on or off the gold standard

MAKE CHANGE Continued From Page 1 ing prompt advice as to progress in the national capital acting Gover nor Kraschel said He added that within a few days a new and sounder banking structure will arise Cofthe service of the nation The statement was as follows Closed in Conformity All Iowa banks are closed in strict conformity with the state proclamation The splendid coop eration that they have shown in up holding our hands gives us hope of obtaining release of Iowa bank money in Chicago and New York It is perfectly obvious that if some our banks were to disregard our proclamation and permit withdraw als of cash our position would be lost forever It is unfortunate thatAmericas business should be so paralyzed but Iowas position Ig extremely strong in such a crisis We have food products that the remainder of the country must have and we would be weak indeed if we did not demand the creation of a sound currency for release of our own funds now in city banks befure normal business is resumed Seek No Advantage We do not seek an unfair advan tage of our sister states but the present bank crisis is due to ex ploitation and unsound banking practices in higher circles over which we had no control We are not to blame for this situation therefore we would be weak if we failed to exercise our position at this time for the protection of our own people President Roosevelt is moving forward boldly and in a construc tive manner Governor Herring is in hourly contact with us advising us as to the progress Within a few days a new and sounder banking structure will arise for the service of the nation We need to be pa tient but a few days more and I commend the loyalty of our bank ers and the patience of our people in the maintenance of our state program FILM PRODUCERS SLASH
