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is superseded and enlarged by the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. '

CHICAGO. Oct 14. 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.

say. 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

A War-Time Request!
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.
Will you kindly co-operate with us in this necessary war
economy?
Always Look in the Telephone Book Before
You Ask "Information" for a
Number.
