THE CURRENCY PLAN
Washington, Aug. 28.-Secretary
McAdoo's plan to accept as a basis
for currency notes secured by ware
house receipts for cotton, tobacco and
naval stores at 75 per cent of their
face value was aliproved tonight in ai
report by the special committee ap
pointed by the conference of represen
tative planters, bankers, manufactur
ers .and dealers' held here August
24 and 25.
The committee recommended that
every effort be made to assist pro
ducers in holding their cotton for a
price that will minimize their losses
until the channels of foreign trade
are reopened. Eight cents a pound
was suggested as a fair basis for loans
The report, which was' submitted
to Secretary McAdoo, follows:
"1. That the committee entirely alp
proves of and congratulate you on the
announcement made by you yester
day afternoon that notes secured by
warehouse receipts for cotton and to
bacco and naval stores. and having not
more than four months to run, will
be accepted as a basis for the issue
o( currency to the members of the
national currency associations at 75
per cent. of the face value of said
"2. That it is the sense of the com
mittee that cotton, tobacco and naval
stores should be marketed as deliber
ately as possible until they can again
be exported in normal quantity and
that when properly conditioned, should
be warehoused with responsible con
cerns, that they should be protected
against weather damage and properly
insured against loss or damage by
":. That warehouse receipts for
those commodities are proper collat
eral for loans by banks, and should
'o accepted with such limitations as
,o ;aargin, inspevtion and valuatior. as
cc :D ative ba .kers 'may each inl
(tscretion see lit to impose.
"1. TIhat the average market valte

it is a mile of econony that the pro

not deteriorate when proiperly ware
housed, and is as good 20 years after
it Is lpi( le l as wleni it is first gath
ered; that it ean therefore be carried
over until the restoration of normal
business conditions enables time
world's cosumlipition to absorb it. The
committee is therefore of the opinion
that every effort shoild be made to as
sist the produceis to hold their cotton
for a price that will minimize their
loss as far as possible until such tine
as the channels of foreign trade shall
be reopened. That loans upon cotton

"5. That in suggesting 8 cents
p~er pound for idd~~ling cotton .as a
basIs for loans, it is not the purpose
of thte committee to convey the idea
opinion the intrinsic value of cotton,
that that figure repbresents in their

situation, and enable the farmer to
