the Day Dally Leased Wire Reports of United Press UP and International News Service INSV U S PROPOSES TEN PER CENT CUT IN TARIFFS Plan Is Submitted to Eco nomic Conference in Form of Suggestion Asks All Nations to Enter v Into General Horizontal Slash CHESTER PA SATURDAY JUNE 17 1933 WHAT ARE THE WILD WAVES SAYING THIS CONGRESS STANDS ADJOURNED TWENTY PAGES PRICE TWO CENTS LONDON June States delegates to the World Eco nomic Conference proposed a sweep ing attack on tariffs and trade bar riers today In a written list of suggestions sub mitted to the economic commission of the conference the United States negotiators asked all nations to enter into a general horizontal cut of 10 per cent in tariffs It also proposed encouragement of bilateral tariff re duction agreements and extension of the truce whereby 41 nations repre senting 80 per cent of trade have agreed not to raise tariff bar riers while the conference is meeting The commission had invited all na tions to submit its proposals for world economic betterment Prime Minister J Ramsay MacDon ald received Secretary of State Cor dell Hull James M Cox and Senator Key Pittman of the American dele gation at a luncheonconference at his country home Chequers Many delegates regarded the engagement as significant having possible bearing on the impasse of negotiations for a cur rency stabilization agreement Later the party went to Windsor Castle to attend the garden party King George gave to conference dele gates Europes drive to force de facto stabilization of the American dollar to the pound sterling occupied the attention of leading delegates today Latest authoritative information led to belief the nations will attempt to avoid any open stabilization agreement or any formal announce ment by the negotiating American British and French bankers with the approval of their government Indications were on the other hand that the powers may merely permit currency stabilization to materialize without public fanfare in order to prevent reaction on world markets or wild fluctuations in price levels Before this apparent decision was reached various alternatives were discussed one of which anticipated at tainment of monetary stability within a few days The other dealt with abandon ment of hopes for stabilization until prices levels rise but apparently was overboard owing to fears that such a course might take so Jong the conference would be forced into a camouflaged recess HEAVY DEALINGS IN OIL STOCKS YORK June except gold mining issues NEW Stocks advanced fractions to a point in an active
