C.—Criticism of the federal reserve board's policy during the months following the mistice Is coupled with recommenda tions that existing banking agencies be adapted to meet credit require ments of farmers in a report sub mitted to congress Monday by the oint commission of agricultural in quiry.

YORK.—A "Bank of Na tions,' with the United States as majority stockholder, an international trade "dollar" as a substitute for gold, and conduct of world business on a credit Instead of cash basis, were advocated by Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska, in a recent address be fore the American Export Association here. He discussed a bill he has intro duced in the senate providing for establishing such a bank of nations, with $2,400,000,000 capital. The Uni ted States, he said, would hold $1, 300,000,000 of the stock, and bankers importers and exporters of this coun try another $200,000,000, leaving the remaining $900,000,000 to be purchas ed by the leading nations. The United States would choose 13 of the bank's 24 directors. The di rectors would have power to issue currency to be known as the interna tional dollar, which would eliminate continual shipment of gold between countries, according to the plan. Senator Hitchcock said that the practical collapse of national com merce is due to the fact that na tions are "trying to do business for cash."
