WASHINGTON. May 27—President Roosevelt has moved to have the United States, as it was described at the Capitol, declared "off the gold standard by statute.'*
The description was given by Chairman SteagaU, of the House Banking Committee, an ho immediately introduced the legislation yesterday It was put before the Senate by Chairman Fletcher of the Banking Committee there, who said it would repeal the ‘gold clauses'* in the act-of 1910, tile Second l iberty bond aet and subsequent legislation, meaning that a1] debts can be paid in legal tender.
The President regards that the gold repeal resolution merely makes a legal record of what is an already accomplished fact.
He explained that the measure simply would mean that the government would pay in currency rather than in gold. He does not, it was said, regard the step as having any effect on lean history
the discussions in the London Keo- a resident of Stevenson. Va
In a statement late in the day.
Secretary W'oodin declared the purpose of the resolution is to remove any doubt or confusion regarding the legal position of debtors and creditors Another purpose, as defined bv the Secretary of the .Treasury, "is to make clear that future obligations. public and private, shall not contain the gold clause."
Wooding statement said the phrasing of the Inflation Law. recently enacted. has raised doubt "whether obligations expressed to be payable iii a particular kind of money, such as gold coin, may be satisfied by payment in other forms of legal tender.'*
It was noted that the resolution, as introduced, would be retroactive, and this brought predictions of great production opposition from* Senator McNary, the activity to Republican leader.
Senator Glass <D. Va), said the courts would hold the proposal to make all contracts payable In legal tender money unconstitution, "if there is any integrity left in the courts with any regard to the sanctity of contracts."
The Virginian, a former secretary of the Treasury, said it would be all right lf the United States decided to go on a paper basis to make all future bonds and currency redeemable in legal tender, but he objected to the phrase "heretofore or hereafter."
It would be ‘utterly useless," Glass held. to enact the legislation with 40 I lier cent, of the gold of the world in this country.
Many Senate leaders said they understood one of the purposes of the legislation was to further weaken the dollar and to that extent raise
