Out of Question.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 29. The
United States treasury department.
does look with favor upon certain
featuros of -thu proposed Internation

coterlo of nationally known finan
ciers and commercial lenders in an
effort to lead the world out of tho

In a letter tn a commlttco of tho
chamber of commerce of tho Unllod
Htntos, which had sought n govern

Biirh a conference would sorvo "to
cause confusion and revive hopes,
doomed to disappointment, of fur

With a nolo of somo finality. Mr.

"Is opposed i to government control
of foreign trade nnd finnneo and
even more oppotiod to prlvato control
it Is convinced that tho crodtm io

must corns through prlvato chan

would mean many peoples would
assume that tho I nlted States was

This also Is reduced tn Impossibil

ol.omlcal combinations of this ele

extremely low temperatures on Mars,

would not allow the carbon com

"Tho planot Venus, on the other
