AVE. N.V tc Quality Counts?Since 11 DEFENDS U S 1 BANK POLICY Federal Reserve Board Right in Raising Discount Rate, Says Vice Governor. CHARLEHTON. W. V?.. Sept. !?.? Edmund Piatt, vice governor of the Federal Reserve Hoard, and lone Republican member of that body, addressing the Went Virginia Hankers' Association today, took Issue with critic* who have attacked the teo.ird for "political effect." and sharply arraigned certain classes of banker* and business men who clamor for "cheap money" as a mean* of promoting ?peculatlon. Piatt warmly defended the action of the board In raising Reserve Bank dlncount raten ax a necessary st*p to preserve the country'* economic equilibrium. "In the face of an enormous demand for commercial credit, the reserve* of the Federal Reserve Hank* have held pretty steady with only alight declines week by week." Mr. Piatt *aid. "There appear* to be credit enough for all legitimate demand* without encroaching on the legal reserve*, but | there la no ?urplu* for speculation, or for profiteering, or for holding any unusual amount of harvested crops from i the market." The stock market today Is absorbing $1,000,000,000 legs credit than last fall, us a result of the high reserve bank rate in New York, now 7 per cent, and that amount 1* diverted to financing crop movements and e**entlal production, Piatt asserted. I'KRIOD OK RKADJl'STMKSTft. "There 1* evidence that we have entered upon a period of readjustment of values. "The people have rebelled against ever mounting price* and *o diminished demand for many article*, particularly clothing and shoes, that some factories have been compelled to close or run on part time. "This has been charged as due to restriction of credit, but I think the movement is deeper and more widespread. There has been a decrease of i prices all over the world. How far the price recession* will go remains to be seen. A lower range of price* will ease up the credit situation materially, but it will at the same time Increase grumbling and criticism. "We are now almost at the peak of demand for credit and currency caused by movement of crop* and It Is easy to see there might have been a serious situation had there been a general Increase of Federal Reserve Bank rates beginning about a year ago." Alluding to certain "political critics," including an unnamed United States Senator, who urge Cheaper money, Mr. Piatt said: "Obviously If you should open the floodgates of credit for speculation the price of securities would advance, but such an advance at this time would absorb credit needed to move crops and productive enterprises. POLICY OF CONSERVATION. "The policy of the board ha* been to conserve credit for production and orderly marketing Reserve bank rates must be flxed with a view to maintaining safe reserves?reserves required by law-?otherwise we should have such Inflation and speculation as could only end In disaster.

I Mr. Piatt Mid It was his oplnl >n that bettor conditions would now prevail If an e?rly Increase In reserve bank rates had been fixed after the war. Federal Reserve bank loans on commercial paper have Increased nearly seven-fold In one year, or about ?l 300,000.000 Mr Piatt .?i<). con J.i stituting evidence of undue expansion together with figures showing total reserve bank loans are In excess of 13.000.000.000 NEW BISHOP OF EASTON DIOCESE CONSECRATED " bli Ordination of Rev.
