POWERS OF ALLIES
FIND UNITED FRONT
(Continued from Page One)
treasury officials said tonight should
go far towards removing the uncer
tainty, financial and economic in
Europe. If a certain income can ba
assured the allied nations, officials
said, the proceeds of unwinding the
tangle torn by the war can, in their
opinion proceed with good prospects
Except indirectly, however, offi
cials said, the fixing or the amount
of reparations would be without ef
fect upon the liquidation of the
110,000,000 war loan to the allies
by this country. The moral fact of
the settlement of this question, they
contended might to some extent re
suit in accelerating payment by the ;
allies of their debts to this country. [
The United States, the officials i
added, has consistently taken the j
position that no scheme for liquidat
ing the allied loan would be accept
able which made payment to this
country contingent upon Germany
fulfilling her reparations obliga- j
tions. The allied debt to the United
States, they said is a separate and
distinct matter from any indemnity
to be exacted from Germany.

RETURN TO NORMAL
BY MAY PREDICTED
Authority At Harvard Has Cheerful
Message?May Come By April
Boston, Jan. 29.?A return to
normal business conditions by April
or May was predicted by Professor
Chas. J. Bullock, chairman of the
committee on economic research at
Harvard University, In an address
to Associate Savings Trust compa
nies of Massachusetts last night.
"We would have suffered the
worst panic in history," he said,
"but for two factors: For the first
time Europe was our debtor to the
extent of fiteen or t^nty billions; i
and we had our federal reserve sys
tem. Wholesale prices never fell so
fast nor so far in so brief a perior
os -n/viir Wa nmir armour tn hp in the I
last phase of liquidation of retail

NATIONAL BANKS ARE
} IN SPLENDID CONDITION
Washington, Jan. 29.__A11 loans |
and discounts held by national
banks including United States gov-j
ernment obligations had increased |
on November 15th last less than 9 (
per cent over such holdings for^
March 4, 1919, a twenty month
period, according to a compilation
of the latest bank call figures made
public by Comptroller of the Cur-1
rency Williams today. The state
ment further shows that United
States securtities now owned or
held as collateral by the national
.banks greatly exceed the money
borrowed by them from all the fed
eral reserve banks.
"Their strong and well fortified i
rendition." said the comntroller
"and the fact that their aggregate
borrowing on rediscounts and bills ^
payable amount to only about ten
per dent o^ their total resources, isj
particularly gratifying when we
consider that our people in the last
three and one half years have taken
up, paid for and havq pretty well di
gested about .twenty four bilion dol
lars of government obligations."
The total resources of all nation
al banks on November 15, 1920,
amounted to $22,081,913,000. To
tal deposits were $16,916,702,000
and total loans and discounts ex
clusive rediscounts were shown
to be $12,311,514,000. The U. S.
government securites held on that
date amounted to $2,152,465,000.
MONEY SAVED THROUGH
CO-OER AT IVE MARKETING
Clemson College, Jan. 29.?The
Bureau of Markets, United States
Department of Agriculture, reports
that farmers in New Mexico saved
$102,220, during 1920, by selling
Pinto beans through a co-operative
mnrkofinor accnrintinn orpnfod r
the lines recommended fey the bu
reau. The association shipped 500
carloads of beans, the total ship
ment weighing 20,000,000 pounds.
In the same state by employing co
operative methods to market sweet
potatoes, farmers saved $35,000.
The effective work of a scare of
co-operative marketing associations
in California and other western
states is well known as having put
the marketing of fruit and other 1
farm products on a stable and profi- :
;able basis. Co-operative marketing
s the one safe way for farmers to
iispose of money crops, and the day
should not be far distant when
South Carolina farmers will market
:o-operatively not only the state's
nain money crop, cotton, but also
;obacco, potatoes, melons, etc.

ive marketing in the far West, 1

OIL PRODUCTION LAST

At Same Time Consumption Was
531,186,000 Barrels, Showing
Dependence of United Stat
es on Foreign Supplies
Washington, Jan. 29.?Oil produc
tion in the United States in 1920 to
talled 443,402,000 barrels while con
sumption of oil in the United States

531,186,000 barrels. Despite the ex
cess of consumption or production,

The figures on oil for the year 1920,
were announced today by the geolog-1
j ical survey in a preliminary survey.
The total production estimate, the <
survey said, probably would be in-]
creased when the amount of oil con- j
sumed on the leases is known and af- i
ter allowance is made for net chan-;
ges in stocks held by producers on 1
the leases, but as it stands repre- j
sents a gain of 17 per cent, as com-'
pared with 1919 and of 78 per cent, j
as compared with 1913.
Imports of petroleum during 1920
amounted to 106,175,000 barrels J
more than double -the imports of j
1919 and almost five times greater;
than the imports in 1913.
"These impressive figures," the)
survey comments "emphasizes the1
growing dependence of the United
States on foreign supplies."
