The forum for the discussion was the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund, a 17-year-old champion of stable currencies and world trade. This meeting, along with simultaneous sessions of the World Bank and affiliated organizations, will con- tinue through Friday. In the monetary realm, an in- crease in the strength of the dollar or any other currency is almos certain to mean that some othe currency is weakening. With th dollar showing new strength Western Europe is increasinglj concerned about its own marks guilders, francs and lire. Per Jacobsson, managing direc tor of the IMF, predicts the U.S balance of payments cause of dollar weakness in recen be substantially elim inated by the end of 1963. Thf Kennedy administration is mak ing the same forecast. Misunderstanding Some of the European finance ministers and central bankers at tending the IMF meeting aren' so certain. But they are con corned about the fact that the in creasing strength of the dollar al ready has weakened the position of several continental currencies As the U.S. payments defici has declined, from billion in 1960 to a current annual rate o billion, the surpluses of Wesf Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland have disappeared The Italian surplus has been re duced. Others Hurt If the U.S. deficit is eliminated on schedule, it will be at the continued expense of other cur rencies. The trend of the U.S. payments amount of mone> leaving the country as compared with the amount coming vir tally important to the rest of the world because of the dollar's un usual position. Along with Brit sln'S pound sterlin, the dollar is a "reserve currency" internation ally acceptable as a substitute for gold. Their Problem If the steady postwar outflow of dollars from the United States is halted next year, this country no longer will be adding dollars to the monetary reserves of other countries. In that event, year-to- year increases in the total re- serves of the non-Communist na- tions would be limited largely to newly mined gold. This potential problem would re- quire major adjustments in the international monetary and trade financing system.

She was at that time emerging from an alley between Bonar Auto and Rhynes shoe store, .Scott said. He added that she was "stagger- ing very.badly." Scott said the two officers ap- proached Mrs. Stegall and at- tempted to learn her name and address. She refused to tell them anything, he said, raising her voice and using abusive language.

Thant is acting secretary-gener- al, serving out the term of the late Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold that ends next April 10. He was elected last Nov. 3 after Hammarskjold's death in a plane crash in Africa a year ago today. U.S. delegate Charles W. Yost, previewing the assembly session Sunday, indicated that the U.S. delegation expects Thant to be re- elected. Yost told New York area mem- bers of the American Association for the United Nations: "The per- formance of the acting secretary- general has been so outstanding and has met -with such universal support among the members, that we doubt if this will be .the subject of serious controversy. "We would be very, much sur- prised if the Soviets were to raise again the matter of the troika, which was 'so decisively defeated last year." In negotiations on Hammar- skjold's successor, the Soviet Un- ion first insisted that the manage- ment of the -United Nations be taken over by three of its under- American, an In- dian and a Russian. But this so-called troika plan proved and the Rus- sians later shelved it and joined in the election of Thant on condi- :ioa he function with the counsel of certain "principal advisers" fore the assembly can re-elect him.

Thant later told reporters the sub- ject never, came up. Over the weekend, one Eastern European intimated he believed Thant will be re-elected to a five- year term.
