WORLD BANK IS PROPOSED FOR POST-WAR LOANS WASHINGTON United States toady proposed establish- ment of a world bank with in" capital to be used in repairing the devastation of war and developing the world's resourc- es in the future. Dr. Harry D. White, director of the treasury division of monetary re- search and author of the world currency stabilization plan propos- ed by this country, announced the proposal at a press conference last night. He indicated it would be sent for approval to members of the United Nations in the immediate future. It was presented to six congres- sional committees in executive ses- sion late Tuesday. The chief purpose of the bank would be to encourage private fin- ancial concerns in the various coun- tries to provide long-term capital for the sound development of the productive resources of member countries. For Reconstruction Loans would be restricted to re- construction rather than rehabili- tation. They would be made by the bank itself, or by the bank in con- junction with private agencies, [joans made by private capital also would be guaranteed. White would not estimate the share of the United States in the suggested capital. He said it would be a "substantial" amount, but would not run to fifty per cent of the total, One of the bank's chief purposes ivould be to prevent an overlapping of loans by private agencies auch as caused many nations to borrow more than they could pay after the last war. Loans Guaranteed All loans made by the bank or by private capital under its authority would have to be guaranteed by the government of the nation to which tlfey were made. Control of the bank would be ex- ercised by a board of directors composed of one director from each member country. Voting power of each country would be closely re- ated to its shaie of the bank's cap- tal. Upon establishment of the bank, 20 per cent of its capital, or would be paid in immediate- y. The bank would call in addi- ional capital as needed, but could not. ask for more than n any one year.
