I IHU FED A L HOLD ON NDUT RY TIGHTENS The Governmental bold has tight ened about industry. Paving the way for a more complete Industrial or ganization behind the armies, the "rationing" plan for the control of industries has been Introduced. Through self-flnanclng. the control exercised over many Industries by the curtailment of credit, has been lost - temporarily, a Federal Reserve Board statement today revealed. The increaslng'y large number of firms able to operate Independently of banks, therefore, has fdrced more drastic action by tbe Government, the statement says. Rationing Plan. , Instead of attempting to control in dustry through the licensing of credit the Government now has moved to re strict expansion of so-called' non essentials at its source. It was ex plained. The priorities principle also is superseded and enlarged by the new plan.

This wis largely due to the fact that many corporations with plants scattered thhugh the country reported earn ings from their New York headquarter. Income and excess profits taxes In 1018 were 7.9 times greater than in cotae taxes In 1017. A table of col lections from these sources by States insane two years shows that West Vftfclnia jumped from 11,921,000 to 4tJ5t9.000. an increase of nearly twjsnty-four times, proportionately greater than any other State.

Tbe Field Mu sehi of Natural nistory in Grant Park, nearlng completion at a cost ofS7.000.000, has been turned ovea to th;Governraent for use as a hospital. Trm interior of the building will be rearranged so that 4.300 patients can bej accommodated, and a number of smjall buildings will be erected arfond the main structure for the ac commodation of 1 000 nurses.

The plan, therefore, governs the conditions under which the manufac ture of goods may proceed and, at the same time, holds a firm hand on their sale. Officials declared the policy now put forth will have a stabilizing ef fect on commercial America, general ly. They believe that by rationing Industry evils of Inflation may be avoided. The existence of large stocks -of goods in itself provides a serious problem according to officials. So. in determining what new goods shall come into existence the Govern ment is deciding. In substance, how much of the nation's money shall be used by Industry, It Is asserted. Advises Banks. The Federal Reserve Board has ad vised banking interests that they should, in no wise, relax their scrutiny of applications for credit. Banking credit. It Is pointed out. still is of basic importance. The banks, the statement says, must remember the question of credit should be viewed from a viewpoint of national economic Interest rather than from a strictly banking requirement AN EYE FOR AN EYE The French national committee In charge of the reparation and restoration of war damage, a dispatch from France today says, has issued a declaration de manding that the allied governments Invoke the law of retaliation against Germany.

Please Consult the Telephone Directory Before Calling "Information" "INrpRMATIOiNT' is called over 5,500 times daily in Washington alone for numbers that can be found in the TELEPHONE DIRECTORY. Such calls greatly reduce operating efficiency at the Information Bureaus. Much additional equipment and many more operators are thus required than would be needed if the directories were used as much as they should be. In order that we may satisfactorily meet the difficulties due to war conditions, and conserve our resources for use in essential war work, we are obliged to request our pa trons to consult the directory for telephone numbers be fore asking "Information" for them. To assist in bringing this about, our "Inrmation' opera tors, when answering calls for numbers appearing in the directory, will request the calling parties to look in the Telephone Book for the numbers.
