DECIMALS An official commission under Lord Halsbury is expected to report before midApril on the desirability of changing the British poundsshillingsp e n c e system to a decimal system to currency and how the conver sion could be made with least disturbance Great Britains system of coinage has baffled the world for generations It has hampered the transactions of international traders confounded foreign tourists and exasperated store clerks and school boys of the isle who must wrestle with it At present 12 pennies pence equal one shilling 20 shillings equal one pound thus 240 pence equal one pound How much simpler it would be if the British monetary system would give to something in multiples of ten decimal cur rency Alas the logic of the proposition has been apparent for many years

that a decimal system of coinage would be of universal advantage in monetary transactions The weight of authority on that head is irresistible All I say is I cannot take any decisive step until we are satisfied that the subject has been thoroughly sifted and is well understood by the public Understanding is not the same as acceptance however and Her Majestys Government has managed to avoid a final de cision for more than a century The hoary issue has come to the fore now primarily because Britain is trying to move nearer to the continent of Europe decimal currencies al ready prevail Britain may shortly be almost isolated if the changeover is not made Yet it is obvious that no decimal coinage can preserve both the British pound and the penny at their present values The pound does not lend itself readily to decimalization since its hundredth part would be too large to serve conveniently as the smallest unit of currency while its division into a thous and parts would involve the dif ficulty of working to three points of decimals There is sentimental objec tion to giving up the pound as the main unit of currency bear ing in mind the honored role it has long played in world trade One suggestion is that the pound continue to be 20 shillj ings each of 10 pennies and that something new be minted to replace the present 10 shilling note It would be worth about a dollar and would eventually bci come the standard unit of curj rency leaving the pound to wither to nominal status as lhe crown and the guinea have doncj in the last century j An important advantage of aj coherent decimal system would be the saving in mathematics PHiTPruTTT i o v teaching time from 5 to 10 VISITOR ri Churchill who became the per cent of ages six to eleven fjnst honorary citizen of the United
