$25,000,000 of Silver and Art
Returned to Hungary by U. S.
ly fh* Aifociatad P«M
FRANKFURT, Germany, April
22.—The United States shipped
$25,000,000 worth of Nazi-hoard
ed Hungarian silver and art ob
jects back to Budapest today in
a new gesture of friendship.
One hundred twenty tons of sil
ver-needed by Hungary to keep her
economy on a sound basis—and 370
priceless cultural pieces were re
turned under an agreement between
the State Department and a Hun
garian economic mission.
The precious cargo was en route
to Hungary’s capital city aboard a
heavily armed United States Army
train which reached Vienna this
morning after passing in almost
total military secrecy across Ger
many and Austria. It is scheduled
to reach Budapest tonight or to
jut. UCU. v/uuuu;c xv. nucuuci,
United States Army chief of staff
in Europe, said in Frankfurt as
hundreds of 66-pound silver ingots
were sent on their way aboard the
14-car express:
“This will show other peoples that
the United States is honest. If we
have something belonging to other
people, we return it.”
The silver is the property of the
Hungarian National Bank. Valued
by Army appraisers at v4,000,000, it
is the last of the monetary assets of
Hungary removed to Germany from
Budapest vaults as the Germans fell
back in Southeastern Europe before
Russia’s advancing armies.
The cultural objects—pricelesf
paintings, jewelry and porcelain—
are valued by Hungarian experts at
Placing greater political value on
the silver, diplomatic quarters in
Germany said the bullion would
help to keep Hungary’s economy on
the stable basis established last
year after the wildest inflation in
modem history.
This inflation ended when the
United States returned $35,000,000
worth of gold to Budapest.
Army officers said plans to re
turn the silver cargo were initiated
before the “Truman doctrine” of
aiding Balkan lands toward de
mocracy was enunciated, but they
said they hoped the gesture would
give the new policy a boost.
The silver was recovered by the
United States 9th Army in a Mag
deburg vault in January, 1945.

Answers President Truman
• MR. PRESIDENT, we are one hundred per cent with ,
you in your endeavor to bririg prices back to normal.
• We do not sell directly to the ultimate consumer of our
products, but we definitely recognize our responsibility
in today’s economic crisis resulting from spiralling prices.
Since the termination of price controls, we have contin
ued to operate at die margin allowed us under O. P. A.
We are an established organization, in business to stay,
not opportunists trying for a “kill”! Every member of
the firm of Douglas & Seidler, Inc., is a veteran of World
War II. We helped in the fight for world security and
intend to vigorously combat the present threat to our
economic security.
• Volume sales are the backbone of the wholesale
business. We can sell only as the public buys! As one
of Washington’s largest distributors we want prices to be
within reach of the mass consumer. This is why we are
now reducing our operating margin well below U. r. A.
levels, although our costs of materials are still rising.
Recent increased volume of carload deliveries by our
manufacturer's have made much of this reduction possi
ble through lowered unit overhead and handling costs. \
The balance is our contribution toward a more stable
• Substantial 'price reductions in all of our lines will be
announced to the firms we supply during the next ten
days. These reductions will be reflected in lower costs
of veterans’ housing and home improvements. It is our
firm belief that this is but the beginning of a nation-wide
movement which must extend from the supplier of the jj
raw materials to the ultimate consumer. We will gladly
pass on any price decreases which are made by the
manufacturers we represent.
