Washington, July 20.-Plans by which the United Statea will relieve Great Britain of the task of rationing the European neutral countries have about reached completion. Within a short time, it was learned yesterday, the British system of issuing letters of assurance for American exports to the neutral wfll be entirely super-coded by the export license arrangement. Although th* Unltod States has been issuing export licenses for nearly a week shipments licensed have no guarantee against British seizure unless letters of assurance are obtained also from the British embassy here. The harden of keeping supplies from reaching Germany therefore still rests on the British. The administration, it was said yesterday, has finally determined on a strict rationing plan, and through its agents abroad will keep a close cheek on trade between the neutrals and the central powers. Great Britain will continue to supervise shipments from South American countries to Europe. Moose Jaw, July 20.-The first an nual convention of the order of grain buyers was closed today at noon.
