April 19 'UP' - Salient points of America's departure from the gold standard in international exchange; A decision not to ship gold abroad to .support the dollar is, in effect, a species of controlled inflation through managed currency. Lack. of .support for the dollar in international exchange will send the dollar to a lower price level. This in turn will enable American exporters to compete on a more even basis with countries whose currency has been depreciated and whose traders have been able to under-sell Americans. Both domestic and international commodity prices are expected to Increase, since the monetary unit —the dollar—will be of less value. The objective of the administration plan is to raise commodity prices and make it advantageous for countries which have deserted .he gold standard eventuality to return to it together. This would open the way for tariff reductions which would cut away the barriers to a freer distribution of goods in international trade.

To this end. effective today, no further gold exports will be permitted for tile purpose of maintaining our currency against the continued foreign stock exchange hammering and the dollar will be allowed to seek its own natural level. The purpose of this move. Mr. Roosevelt explained, is to raise commodity prices. Rather than controlled inflation, the administration is .seeking a controlled price level. The action taken bv the United States is expected to strengthen America s position in urging an international return to the gold standard. In quarters close to the President it was made clear that the detachment of the dollar from the gold standard in foreign exchange is only temporary and the administration hopes for an Continued on Page Sixteen COOLER WEATHER FOLLOWS BALMY DAY Southern breezes, averaging six miles an hour and never exceeding fourteen, made yesterday the warmest day of 1933.
