| A. C. Miller of Federal Reserve
Board Warns Against Un*
ALL MUST SAVE, HE SAYS
By the Associated Press.
PHILADELPHIA, November 3.?With
a warning that inflation already had
begun, A. C. Miller, member of the fed
eral reserve board, told the national
conference on financing the war here
today that American business must not j
undertake to carry the war as an "ex
tra," but must exercise the vision and
imagination necessary to see the great |
changes in economic organization es- j
sentlal to victory.
Mr. Miller pointed to. the increase In I
federal reserve bank investments as
evidence of the existence of inflation, j
partially responsible for the rise in j
commodity prices since the United;
States went to war, and declared that if
this increase continued it was not un
reasonable to expect that before long
the reserve system would be made into
a great engine of banking inflation. He
explained the process by which enor- j
rnous inflation has been caused in Ger-i
many.and France, through government
borrowing from the banks, and added:
Saving as a Preventive.
?Whether a similar result is to be ex
pected here in connection with our
greater government borrowings, and
if so. how soon, will largely depend upon I
whether all the people who have in-j
come enough to save will save, or;
whether they can or will save enough j
out of their incomes to absorb such |
loans of the government as may be put j
out in excess of the current savings
fund of the nation.
"The obligations of a government i
such as the United States, when con
sidered purely from an investment ?
point of view, are unquestionably the j
most eligible sort of investment."
Estimating the annual actual say-!
ings of the American people at $15,- ?
000.000,000, Mr. Miller suggested that j
$12,000,000,000 would be left to absorb !
loans after deducting $3,000,000,000 to
meet war taxes. Since appropriations
for the coming year aggregate some
$20,000,000,000, he said, $5,000,000,000
must be added to the nation's savings
if the war's expenses are to be met.
Millions of Laborers Needed.
Mr. Miller stated his opinion that it
would require all of the economic re
sources of the country to win the war.
"I have it on competent authority,"
he said, "that it takes the labor of four
men. working in industries of one kind
or another producing military and
other needed supplies, to maintain one
soldier at the front. This means that
an American army of 1,000,000 men
will require the output of 4,000,000
men. working in factory, field and
"I also have it on competent author
ity that the munitions, provisions and i
other maintenance that the armies and !
civilian populations of our allies in j
Europe must have from us will require
the output of more than 10,000,000 la
borers working in this country.
"If we accept as approximately ac
curate the estimates of our present
available labor supply as amounting to
30,000,000 workers, the magnitude of
the economic problems with which we
are confronted is suggested by the re
quirement that one-half or more of our
existing labor supply must, during the
war, be devoted to the producing of j
materials and supplies to be consumed
by our men and the armies of our al- j
lies and the civilian populations of the i
nations in Europe which are dependent.
on us for part of their necessary keep.,
"Business as Usual" Wrong, j
"I cannot believe," Mr. Miller con-!
tinued. "that those who are sponsoring i
the doctrine of 'business as usual' can |
appreciate the economic significance of:
the doctrine. The man who knowingly
preaches the doctrine of 'business as;
usual' at this time is proposing that'
private advantage should be set
against or ahead of public necessity.!
At this crisis in the nation's life every
business, no matter what its nature, is
affected with a public interest, and the j
Public has the right?indeed, owes it i
to itself?to determine within what i
limits that business shall be circum
scribed in the interest of the war, or to ;
what extent it shall be helped and fos- !
tered in the same interest. The Amer- I
lean business system is on trial in this j
war. If it fails in rising to the occa
sion through cowardice, weakness or I
selfishness it will have gone a long
way toward sounding its death-knell
and surrendering to other agencies the
right of leadership in the great proc
esses of economic reconstruction which
must take place at the close of the
Summing up his survey of the situa
tion, Mr. Miller reached these conclu
"The ultimate terms of our war
financing must be. not money, but
what money will buy.
"Vast as our proposed expenditures I
and advances are, there is reason to !
believe that they can be met without !
the use of any doubtful or wasteful ex- j
pedients of finance.
"Any attempt to carry the war as an I
extra would pave the way for an abuse :
of loans and a certain inflation of !
credit and prices which in the end
would increase the probable cost of the *
war by as much as 23 per cent.
Mobilization of Industry.
"Government bond Issues, to be safe, j
must be bottomed upon real savings. |
Intensive and discriminated savings !
and methods of promoting thrift are
necessary ingredients in any effective i
program for war finance.
"A similar necessity exists for the j
effective mobilization of the indus- I
trial power of the country. The right
of way must be given to Industries that !
are tributary to the war nfeeds of the
"Working to the same end is priority!
of credits, the different industries of
the country having priority upon the
fluid credit of the federal reserve sys
tem in the order of their importance
(embargo of credit to non-essential
enterprise). Such a priority ia con
sistent with the spirit of the federal
reserve act, which in one of its most
fundamental clauses directs that rates
"shall be fixed with a view of accom
modating commerce and business."

CORK FRETS OVER
LOSS OF U. S. GOLD
Since Stoning of U. S. Sailors,
Jackies Are Kept Out of
ATTACK HELD UNJUSTIFIED
| Correspondence of the Associated Press. ,
CORK, Ireland, October ?2.?The Sinn
Fein is keeping 52,500 a week from the
hands of the Cork merchants. That
amount was spent each* week for four
months by American naval officers and
sailors. It ceased when the Sinn Fein
ers began to attack the American blue
jackets, and it will not be resumed
until the streets of Cork are again
made safe for the Americans. At pres
i ent no naval man below the rank of a
I destroyer commander may visit Cork
S without laying himself open to a gen
| eral court-martial. The same applies
to the British naval forces.
Indignant over this loss of revalue,

Would Invite Sailors Back.
The local newspapers publish the fol- j
lowing letter from Richard Blair, head of t
i the local business men's association:
"I sugsest, in the interest of the busi- j
! ness men, taxpayers and hotel keepers ;
I of our city who find it hard to carry on i
! in these times, that the sailors of the j
United States Navy be invited to come j
to the city as formerly before it is too j
' late, and they are removed altogether to ?
some foreign station, to be replaced by !
the sailors from another allied power, not j
nearly so opulent as those from the U. ;
S. A. There are many bonds and ties ;
between our folk and the people of the :
great republic who used to flock to our ;
shores as tourists before the war. Their ;
place was filled, in a large measure, by
the officers and the men of the United ;
States Navy to the benefit of all traders." :
Charges Held Untrue.
Another appeal for the return of the
! American sailors is made by Miss j
Marie Lynch, who as fiead of the "poor j
league guardians," made an official in- :
vestigation of various charges which
the Sinn Fein leaders brought against
the American visitors. She says, In
placing before the public the result of
her investigation, "many wild stories,
unproved by any specific facts, were
spread throughout the city regarding
the conduct of some American sailors.
It was mentioned that the Cork Union
could produce evidence to bear out the
allegations. Upon investigation there
I found there was not the slightest
proof. I am quite aware that many
pood people were led by specious argu
ments to believe these wicked tales
against the sailors and were so de
ceived themselves. Now, it is a' well j
known fact that/1 the American Navy,
composition and organization, is one
of the best in existence. Strict and
i constant supervision is exercised over
every man by the officers in charge.
Sought to Cause Breach.
"I feel sure when some of our city
| fathers conclude their investigation
i that they may be led to assume that!
I some mischievous people, for ulterior
motives, have sought to cause a breach
in the friendship between America and
Ireland. May I hope the good sense
and intelligence of our people will de
feat such object, and that we shall en
deavor to make an 'amend honorable'
to our American kinsmen and continue
to extend to them the 'cead mile
failthe' which America has so jusfly
earned at our hands."
The Cork County Eagle, in an edito
rial account of the anti-American
demonstration which preceded the
American decision to put Cork out of
"Many strange things have happened
