effect what Secretary of the Treasury Morgen thau termed a new kind of gold Great Britain and France took si milar action as the result of a three power agreement Officials here said the pact was designed to curb currency speculation put a check rein on exchange fluctuations and establish a free movement of gold among the three governments Other nations were invited to join the new gold and some gov ernment economists predicted it might spread within a few weeks to a large part of the world Would Exchange Gold The understanding provided that the stabilization funds of the three
