DIRECT TALK Still Adamant Against Immediate Stabilizing of Dollar WASHINGTON July 5 Adamant against immediate stab ilization of the dollar President Roosevelt moved twice today to as sure the continuance of the work economic conference at London which he feels is desirable First he conveyed his latest views to Secretary Hull in a direct conversation with the head of the American delegation at the British capital Subsequently he dispatched Law rence Steinhardt his minister to Sweden to London for fresh and personal elaboration of the Amer ican position Steinhardt to Sail Mr Steinhardt will sail tomorrow for the world conference He conferred with the president and apparently will carry with him to the deadlocked parley oral in structions from the president to the American delegation

hia talk with Secretary Hull Mr Roorevelt was said in high quarters to still have every confidence the conference will pro ceed Makes No Comment He would not comment on his talk with Mr Hull preferring to let the actions at London speak for themselves At the white house however it was explained quite emphatically why the president will not consider Immediate stabilization of the dol lar which has been demanded by the European gold bloc at the threat of disruption of the conference In an official source that knows he was described as feeling that any stabilization agreement would require the United States to estab lish a stabilization fund and morally bind this country to export gold to back up the agreement if it became necessary He is not ready to export gold or to enter any agreement that would normally obligate this coun try to export gold Nothing to U S Mr Roosevelt realizes that the question of stabilization of curren cies in international exchange means much to some of the Euro pean nations but does not regard it as a factor affecting the United States He is looking to an eventful per manent basis of stabilization but holds to the opinion that such must come about first after each country has stabilized its own domestic pur chasing power The president does not regard the establishment of stabilization funds as has been demanded as on the agenda of the conference As for finding the truo purchas ing power of the currencies of the various nations the president does not consider there has been time sufficient to determine this as yet Off for Four Ycnrs
