Last year's dispute between the
Treasury end tm Reserve Board
centered on whether the Reserve
Board should go on supporting
the prices of Government securi
ties, end thereby keep interest
rates low, The controversy sub
sided with the board buying only
enough securities to keep an or
derly market. It has let interest
rates rise and prices on Govern
ment bonds fall.
This raises the cost of carrying
the huge national debt, but the
board contends it saves the Gov
ernment money in the long run
by curbing Inflation.
