AU Government
Loans a Menace,
Says Crosby
Financial Adviser to Amer?
ican Peace Delegation
Declares in Favor of Pri?
vate Financing of Europe
Oscar T. Crosby, financial advisor
to the American delegation at the i
peace conference who returned to New |
York yesterday, declared that any j
further governing financing of V.u- j
ropean countries would prove aj
political menace to the United States. I
He advocated a policy of private ini?
tiative on all loans for commercial and ;
industrial restoration of Europe.
Mr. Crosby made it plain that he i
was speaking unofficially. His services |
terminated with the signing of the]
armistice. Prior to the conference he )
was assistant Secretary of the i
Treasury and president of the Inter- ,
Ally Council on Purchases and j
"1 am merely approving tho state?
ment of the Federal Reserve Boar?,"
Mr. Crosby said, "which discouraged
further government loans to the na?
tions of Europe."
The assertion made recently by
Prank Vanderlip that Europe was bank?
rupt was brought to Mr. Crosby's at?
"I think conditions have been
very much exaggerated," he said, "an?
that European rountries will not bor- j
row nearly as much as has been talked i
"Every government loan is a men- ,
arc. There is no political darker in
private loans. The bank groups in :
Europe might canvass the needs of the ;
countries, investigate them und the i
securities offered and report to the |
Amencan bankers, who could issue1
loans on one, two or three year cer- |
tificates la this way Europe would J
rapiHIy recover. It might accomplish
this in five years, but it is everybody's ?
guess. If tne governments remain !
stable they will recover quicker than '
the South did after the Civil War.
' The banker? could themselves fix :
the proper Inters t ra'e. It ought to,
be possible tor a manufacturer of |
(.'?hkoih to obtain the same credit as
any foreign borrower. The government j
raten nanc ng nakei It too easy
lor a banker to get money. It ought
not to be too easy to get money, and i
thtre should be nomo supervision of:
\) e credit :."
Mr. Crosby declared that the willing- |
MM to pay taxes wouid not continue
as it d;d during ?he war, and that'
Amerieai I tudy how to reduce1
them, rather 'ran InftatS the tax rute
tirough government control of foreign
financing. He ipoke of the numerous
?tr:ke? as "pan of the general irrita
lion of the moment."
"As far a.H Russia is concerned, I am
against intervention," Mr. Crosby aaid,
'The Kolchak government is a go*r< rn?
...'.nt of private ownership withoat any
reaction to Csaritn. The other is an
att?nuai to B4 I np a communism. 1 do
not believe it w:il come in my day,
but I think it would be a bad thing
to interfore now. If the communism
idea !? wrong, it will not take long to
show it. If ?o intervene, the Russians
will aay it waa nat given a ehanee. It is
?his objection to intervention that is
causing so much unrest in Frunce, to?
gether w,th inflation of the credits and
the high cost of living there. AH this.
' I believe, will end with the withdrawal
cf troops from Europe and the gradual
return to prewar conditions."
Mr. Crosby snid he wan returning to
hi? home in Virginia to live as n
I private citizen. He expect? to engage
| In literary work, and will pal some of
h'i reflections on the league of na
, tions in Srriting.

The navy communications officer re?
ceived the following direct from the
"Will land Montauk Point. Report

calls for help continued to grow more
urgent all day as she nesred the finish
of her transatlantic journey only to
find gasolene and sustaining hydro?
gen gas exhausted, was established to?
night at 11:40 o'clock by the destroyer
Bancroft of the United States Navy.
At 11:3<> p. m. the commander of the
destroyer Stevens reported his vessel
cruising at a spot about forty miles
northeast of the last position given by
the R-34. Orders were sent him from
Washington to proceed at full speed
townrd the dirigible's location, contin?
uing meanwhile to establish radio com?
The Bancroft at that hour, according
to messages which reached the Navy
Lepartment, was trailing the dirigible
as it proceded southwest across the
Gulf of Maine. The R-34 was still
un?er her own power.
Naval observers *ai<^ the destroyer
probably would stand by the dirigible
until daylight, calling the Stevens to
her assistance meanwhile. No attempt
to take the airship in tow or to refuel
her would be possible until then, it was
ssid. If the vtaeal has gas and fuel
enough to sustain honoM until the ?an
reach Boston it is fxpeetcd that no at?
tempt will be made to resupply her at
The navy radio broadcasted a we<
Mga to all cities and towns asking ?hat

it was said that about ?"0 persons
?eould be required to bring the big

icapped by lack of fuel and hydrogen,
according ta the message received at
that time by the Navy Departm?;e.t.
The message, which was relayed from
the Ottei Cliff station, follows:
"Position R-34, 67 degrees and 30
minutes west; 43 degrees and ?0
minutes north. Course southwest by

At 11:2:* p. m. the Navy Department
received ?he following metsage ftom

"Flying 1,500 feet above tea. Come
and meet us. Making for Boston: ?
Rush Very ?hort of gasolene."

which were led by the dettroyert Stev?

they would have difficulty tn finding the
balloon owing to injury to its wireless
as indicated in the following message
from the airmen, which wat re

was to have landed, from Boston;
'High power off except on half
