of his policies past and future for domestic and international recovery from the depression Similar to the measures already proposed for government coopera tion with agriculture and transpor tation the president would put the force of government behind trade agreements under a relaxation of the antitrust laws Will Help Borrower Seated at a desk in the white house Mr Roosevelt also gave no tlcbithatlieiwould use thepowers tS toprovioe inflation it may be necessary to accom plish the purpose The administration he said has the definite objective of rais ing commodity prices to such an ex tent that those who haveborrowed money will on the average be able to repay that money in the same kind of dollar which they borrowed We do not seek to let them get such a cheap dollar that they will be able to pay back a great deal less than they borrowed Would Correct Wrong In other words we seek to cor rect a wrong and not to create an other wrong in the opposite direc tion That is why powers are being given to the administration to pro vide if necessary for an enlarge ment of credit in order to correct the existing wrong There is every indication Mr Roosevelt will employ promptly the irovlsion in the inflation bill pro iding for government purchase of outstanding government bonds as a neans of making millions now in ested by banks in these obligations ree for industrys use His declaration that well consid ered and conservative measures will be proposed for industrial super vision was regarded as meaning hat something new in the way of egislation would be advanced in the place of the 30 hour work week bill now pending in the house Plan Is Drafted An unofficial committee headed by Senatoi Wagner DNYI has virtually completed the drafting of a plan for self regulation by indus try through a relaxation of the anti trust laws and is expected to put it before the president this week Industry has been described by J H Rand Jr prominent manufac turer and a member of the Wagner committee as considering a pro posal to put 3000000 men back to work on a specified date as a part of the program Mr Roosevelt speaking of the authority about to be given hin over agriculture to improve com modity prices and prevent over pro duction said the extent of its us will depend entirely upon what th future has in store Reviews His Steps The president reviewed in detai the steps he has taken since March 4 and asserted that congress ha not surrendered its power but rath er delegated him as its agent t carry out the emergency program He mentioned neither the bankinj reform legislation still in dispute in committee on Capitol Hill nor th controversial war debts issue Fresl doubt arose as to whether he wouli seek action on either at this specia session In the international field he out lined a fourfold ament and security reduction o trade barriers stabilization o currencies and reestablishment o friendly relations and greater con fidence between all nations He reported that our foreign visitors who have been conferrin here have responded to these pur poses in a very helpful way H declared with emphasis that th international conference that lie before us must succeed WHERE BODY WAS FOUND In these ruins of the Carl Buehrcr home a mile east of Graflon the body of Emll Bnehrcr 38 Swanvllle Minn who was visiting there was found Emil Buehrer was

makes each nation anxious to make itself economically self suffl lent thus throttling the flow of rade between nations Paying Farmers Bounties France Germany and Italy it is xplained are paying their farmers luge bounties to grow wheat when he product as produced on a large cale in Canada the United States and Argentina is available in the vorld markets at a fraction of the irice maintained in those European ountries In the United States there has ong been a movement to provide a domestic source of rubber or its quivalent The labors of the late Thomas Edison in that direction vere recalled At the same time he great rubber producing regions of the world in the Malay peninsula and Brazil were suffering from rec ird low prices far below calculated costs of production and huge stocks hat could not be sold at any price Waiting on Japan I Some foreign exchange experts express the view that England will be reluctant to stabilize the pound until Japan stabilizes the yen and doubt that Japan can or will under take stabilization until she com pletes her venture in China The yen owing in part to the costs of he Chinese expedition has depre ciated more sharply than the pound which has enabled the Japanese to make inroads into Great Britains trade in the far cast particularly in cotton textiles It is the hope of the world eco nomic conference that it can devise methods through currency stabiliza tion and the removal of trade bar riers whereby the nations will once more swap their huge surpluses of goods through a normal flow of world trade but financial experts here feel that few nations will be willing to make themselves de pendent upon foreign markets for products which they can produce at home even if at much higher coats vintil war clouds are cleared away Plead
