FEDERAL BOARD
,L RESTRICT
COLD EXfO£TS
Silver and Currency Also
Come Under the New
Regulations
(By Associated Press.)
Washington, Sept. 26. Regula
tions governing the exportation of
gold, silver and currency, announced
yesterday by the federal reserve
board, indicate that the government
will restrict such exports to the
maximum 'decree except where they
cannot be avoided in settling trade
balances.
The board announced as Its gen
eral policy (hat it would not author
ise the exportation of gold unless it
could be shown that the gold was
to pay for a corresponding importa
tion of merchandise for consumption
in this country.
"In any case," the announcement
says, "authorization will be granted
only where the exportation of gold in
payment for such merchandise is
found to be compatible with th
public interests."
The amount of gold which persons
leaving the country may take with
them, was fixed at $200, for each
adult. Five thousand dollars in addi
tion may be taken out in currency
and $200 in silver or Bilver certlfl
cates without license. The board's
announcement, after stating the gen
eral policy, continues:
"Until further notice the board will
approve all applications for the
exportation of Canadian silver coin
and currency without limitation. The
treasury department has instructed
collectors of customs to pass such
shipments into Canada when approv
ed by the federal reserve Jpank of the
district from which shipment* are
made.
"Continuous permits for shipment
of Canadian coin and currency with
out an application in each case may
be granted by federal reserve banks
upon condition that each transaction
will be reported to it without delay.'
"Applications for the exportation
of silver bullion and silver coin for
foreign mintage will in general be
approved by the federal reserve
board upon recommendation of the
federal reserve banks at which the
application is filed.
"Applications for the exportation
of United States notes, national bank
notes and federal reserve notes will,
as a rule, be approved by the federal
reserve board, but each application
must come before the board for its
determination before shipment is
made.
"Collectors of customs have been
informed that in dealing with travel
ers they may act in accordance with
these regulations without communi
cation with the federal reserve board,
or the federal reserve bank of their
district.
'Shipments of coin or currency
which appear to be or are suspected
of being for enemy accounts or for
the benefit of the enemy, will not be
permitted."
DEADLOCKOfWAR TAX
BILL REMAINS UNBROKEN
8ection May Be Entirely Rewritten
Before Agreement is Reached.
(By Associated Press.)
"Washington, Sept. 26.—Conferees
on the war tax bill failed again yes
terday to break their deadlock on
war excess profits taxation but some
progress was made on compromise
negotiations just before they
adjourned until today.
Return of the measure to the sen
ate and house before the latter part
of the week was said last night to be
improbable, and more of the con
ferees were disposed to fear a final
disagreement.
Virtually the whole question of
war excess profits was said to have
been thrown open yesterday and a
fresh start on various compromise
proposals made. It was reported
that the conferees were considering
entirely rewriting the section, follow
ing suggestions made personally by
telephone by Secretary McAdoo.
Among the questions reopened
was the definition qf corporate in
vested capital, which the conference
had previously settled. Some mem
bers also raised the question of
reaching railroads with an excess
profits levy and of considering in
tangible assets in calculating excess
profits. House conferees were said
to be insistent on a flat 8 per cent
capitalization exemption, in lieu of
the 6 per cent minimum and 10 per
cent maximum provision of the sen
ate.

Believe Warm
Weather Will
Prevent Plague
Bowman, N. D.. Sept. 26.—With
the fourth day of sweltering July
weather experienced, experts
predict that the millions of
grasshopper eggs laid in August
will hatch out this week and that
western North Dakota will be
saved from a grasshopper plague
which would have threatened it
next year. The yield of late
grains this year was seriously
affected by the damage* of the
grasshoppers and they deposited
millions of eggs here during their
stay.
Gems give light without heat If
placed in glass tubes with the air
pumped out. A diamond of five
carats emits as much light In a
vacuum as a candle in ordinary air.
The light of a ruby is rather red
and the gem looks red hot or hottar
than red. An emerald in a vacuum
emits a crimson light. Kunzite glows
yellow with a rose tinge.
