Biddeford Saco journal mon., december 13, 165 3 Congress taking look at interest rate hike Washington a coned to keep prices stable and improve the International position of the Dollar in the face of continuing unfavourable balances of payments. Gress takes an official look today at the interest rate hike which placed the Federal Reserve Board in direct conflict with president Johnson on economic policy. The Senate House economic committee opens hearings on the increase calling chairman William Mcchesney Martin or. And the other members of the Federal Reserve Board As first witnesses. The chairman of the committee rep. Wright Patman d-tex., said in an interview he believes the Federal reserves real motive for the increase was not to Ward off inflation or improve the International standing of the Dollar but to bail out the new York Banks which have $15 billion in certificates of Deposit coming Patman who has been demanding the Federal Reserve Board chairman s resignation for months said it will be a Miracle if Martin hangs    Patman said the Banks wanted a higher interest rate for the certificates a special form of Deposit for a fixed time on which Banks normally pay higher than regular interest. They thought they might have trouble getting the certificates unless they could pay 5m per cent Patman said. However the senior Republican member of the committee sen. Jacob k. Javits of new York disassociated himself from Patman s accusation As Well As from the chairman s Long term efforts to subject the Federal Reserve an Independent Agency to government controls. I Don t agree with what the Federal Reserve did in this Case javits said in a separate interview but i think it is very important for the Federal Reserve to maintain its Independence. I think the Force of Public opinion at hearings like this will do what is necessary for correction. Any legislative action would impair the Federal Reserve s the Federal Reserve Board announced on dec. 5 an increase in the discount rate from 4 to 4�i per cent and an increase from 4 /2 to 5vz per cent in the ceiling on interest rates Banks can pay on time deposits. Johnson promptly expressed his displeasure. The resulting increase in interest rates throughout the banking system tends to raise the Cost or Money for All borrowers from the consumer buying a television set or automobile to the businessman expanding his Plant and the government Selling Bonds to cover its deficit.
