not however easy to under stand in the language he em ploys William Al therton du Puy author of a historical treatise on world coin ages and a recognized authority on tae subject discusses the compact in simpler terms he tuations in values of money as be tween different issues of the differ ent countries is very disorganizing to world trade If the fluctuations were in conformity with one another it would not be so bad But they are not Under postwar conditions where one countrys money has been fluctuating upward some other countrys money has been quite like ly fluctuating in the opposite direc tion Bargaining between nations with these rapid changes going on necessarily has teen difficult to the point of United Now continues du Puy the three countries with the most de pendaole of world currencies are al lied in an attempt to prevent fur ther monetary fluctuation at least among themselves Their combined financial strength may be sufficient to flat ten sut fluctuation generally We shall see Automatic fluctuations due to a countrys losses in war or from some other cause probably are un preventable but some of them are artificial For example we devalued our dollar Not Immediately Felt We announced fiftyone per cent of as much gold as formerly was required to constitute SI now is a full The full effect of this ukase was not immediately felt in the United States but it was felt in foreign markets overnight A fluctuation of the first class England similarly devalued tne quite in the same ratio Fluctuation nevertheless At last France devalues the On Anxious Seat This jiggling up and down of in ternational exchange says du Puy naturally keeps world traders worse than on the anxious seat The A n g 1 oFrancoAmerican dicker seems to imply permanency No more devaluations or other thimbleriggins International Money My own reasons du Puy is that we need an interna tional money on an international basis Gold is convenient because in ternationally recognized but any j real value will do I do not he adds that al countries monies should be merged We should keep the dollar the English the pound the French the franc the German the mark the Japanese the yen and so Gram as Unit insists du Puy we should agree on a unit of value I would say that it should be a gram of gold A gold gram is worth about what our dollar is worth today A de valued franc is worth about one fifth of a gold gram An English pound is worth about five times a gold gram Preserve dollars and francs and pounds and marks and lira but in that proportion EXPECflSHAP TOLL OF Sessions of 25th National
