Freedom in 18 Years

whether Pres. Hoover's recom

cuts should be followed.
The house itself, meanwhile in
clining an interested ear to beer
hearings in its ways and means com

debate on the president’s annual
message, with party disagreements
developing over his suggestions for
a general sales tax. new economies

was taken up today as the Im

Leaders of both parties looked
for passage of a bill by next week.
The measure before them, consid
ered today under an agreement
made before adjournment of the
last session, was the Hawes-Cutting
bill, granting freedom to the islands
18 years after passage. But changes
were forecast, largely because it
conflicts sharply with the Hare bill
—passed by an overwhelming ma
jority bv the house last session—
which provides for full freedom in
eight years.
Both measures are opposed by the

scales of International settlements
appear to be tilting so sharply
against France as to promise a sub
stantial return flow of gold from
that country to the United States.

This, if it occurred, would mark a
complete reversal m the dirfctiou of
the gold stream For. In 15 months.
France levied a toll of nearly a bil
lion dollars on America's gold re
A strong possibility that gold will
be shifted in heavy volume from
the bank of France vaults to the
American Central bank is seen in
the recent weakness of the French
franc. At its present quotations of
■round 3 90 3-9 cents it is at lbs
level where It Is theoretically more
profitable to ship gold here than to
purchase dollars.
France Palled Heavily
The heavy flow of France start

standard. By the end of that year,
French withdrawal from the United
States totalled over 1360.000. X
During subsequent developments
France continued to puli heavily n
her balances here, which of course
were shipped to her in gold.
The ability of France to part with
considerable gold without weaken

international banking quarters in
view of the gold holdings of the
Bank of France. These approxi
