Liberty bonds will como back to par, George W. Norris, governor of the Federal Reserve Bnnk, asserted here to day. He would not forecast when they would reacli par, he said, but predicted Victory notes would be at par within four years. "There is no doubt that Liberty bonds will come back to par," Mr. Norris said. "No sensible person makes pre dictions as to the future price of securi ties. Liberty bonds may go still lower, but there Is no possible doubt that every one who has them should hold on to them, and that every one who can buy them ought to do It. "If Liberty bonds dojto lower, buy more. Let every investor, large or smajl, buy as many as he can pay for and keep them until they get back to par." Mr. Norris said the market value of Liberty bonds declined for two reasons. "First," he said, "because they were what bond brokers call 'badly placed.' A bond Is never really sold until it is sold to nn investor who pays for it and puts it iu his box. Until thnt hap pens the bond Is still for sale. No matter how many times it changes hands it is simply a transfer from one person who is trying to sell it to nnother who intends to sell it. Liberty llonds had to be sold that way because there was not enough investment capital in the country to iibsoib ihcin as they were issued. "The MHjond rea-uti fur the decline," he continued, "is thnt slneff they were issued interest rates have gone up and X REPORTED ONE DEAD, SEVERAL HURlS&Si IN RIOT AT A ncgio is teportcH to have bceu shot to (loath nnd seveinl were hurt in a riot at Twenty-seventh and Annln streets near Tventy-seventh and Federal, at 1 o'clock this afternoon.
