SUGGESTS PLAN TO OPEN
NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE
Percy K. Chandler Recommends Mor
atorium and Guarrmten Fund.
A btond plnn for tho reopening of the
Stock Hxchanrfo Is suggested by Percy
M. Chandler, of Chandler llros. & Co., In
n letter which he has written to V. C.
Van Antwerp, n member of tho Govern
ing Committee Of tho NoW York Stock
"I think wc aro all agreed that the
problem, In n brottdsense, Is threcfdld,"
says Mr, Chandler, pointing out tho three
problems ah follows: "Protection of tho
foreign exchange situation due to heavy
liquidating sales by foreign holders; somn
cooperative effort by pool, or otherwise,
for the organized support of the mnrket,
and 'h" adjustment of tho collateral lonu
situation In such a way as not to force
Immediate liquidation by weak holders."
"Assuming Hhat tho Hi st two factors
nro beliu, or will be, satisfactorily solved
by the International bankers nhd larger
Interests on or before the opening of the
exchange," says Mr. Chandler, "tho fol
lowing plan might avoid tho dangers of
the third problem:
"Establishment of a moratorium of
loans for a pqrlod of SO dnya, more or
less, from tho dnto of the reopening of
the Stock Echangc.
"An assessment on all collateral loans
a ITected by Block otchnngo operations
of, say, 2 per cent, to be charged directly
against the borrower or his clients, tho
same as nny other enrtyim l)iirgc. Tills,
on nn estlmotcd J700.OCO.000 of collateral
loans, would net a guaiantee fund of
"No loans to eomo within the guar
antee fund except those cnrrjlng n 20
per cent, margin at the time of tho re
opening of tho Exchange, based ort the
olllclal or closing prices of July 30, 1314."

writes about the war in
Sunday's Public Ledger

series of articles by Shaw, the first of which
appears on Sunday. The title of the series is

Shaw has written with biting and clever
sarcasm and frankness. You will want to read
all of these characteristically Shavian articles.
They are bound to bring forth a mass of
protest and criticism, in which Shaw delights.
