Prof. Dowrie of Finance Department on Anglo -French Loan



"Lack of American Enthusiasm Not
Due to Fear That Obligations
Will Not Be Met"
(By Prof. G. W. Dowrie)
Few financial, transactions have at-
tracted so wide attention as the $500,-
000,000 loan recently floated in this
country by commissioners represent-.
ing the English and French govern-
ments. Never before has an attempt
been made to float in the United States
a loan of such magnitude. In fact,
few foreign loans of this size have ever
been undertaken in any country. In
addition to the size and character of'
the loan, the fact that it encountered
the vigorous opposition of persons in
sympathy with the cause of the Teu-
tonic allies gave it unusual publicity.

There is plenty of ''just what the
public wants," and comedy and song,
and the bill is one that pleases all
classes. It is headed by Tom Linton
and his "Jungle Girls."

An extra added attraction to this
bill is the "Royal Italian Quintet," an
aggregation of start from the Lom-

well known operas as "Il Trovatore,"

Stephen Leacock's reputation was
made several years ago, with his
"Nonsense Novels," and "Literary
Lapses." And that reputation has suf-
fered little with his latest book,
The quality which should make it
appeal to some who in the past com-
plained of the never-ending sameneas
of Mr. Leacock's humor is the great
variety of the contents of the book.
He takes in samples of work such as
made up each one of his previous
volumes. Perhaps the best hit in the
book, is the "What's What,'a Com-

New York, Dec. 13.-In the Colum-

which was established two years ago
by the George Crocker Special Re-

Dr. Francis Carter Wood, director of
the Laboratory, and Dr. Frederick

exposure, the amount of radium gm-
ployed, the distance between the ra-
dium tube and the tumor issue, to the
killing effect upon a cancer cell. This
is the first time that the working out
of such quantitative tests has been
successful. Dr. Wood hastened to

chases of American breadstuffs, cot-
ton and manufactured articles are so
nearly offset by our indebtedness in-
curred because of importations, ex-
penditures of tourists, the borrowing
of foreign capital, the carriage of our
goods in foreign vessels and the other
so-called "nvisible items" that the
actual shipment of gold is confined to
a comparatively small movement away
from America in the first half of the
year and a similar movement towards
America during the latter half. Since
the outbreak of the war, in spite of
the heavy purchases of American se-
curities from foreigners by American
#nvestors, European claims against us
have greatly diminished in amount,
w'iIle our shipments of manufactured
articles and raw materials have as-
sumed unheard-of proportions. For
some time the monthly balances in our
favor have exceeded $100,000,000, with
the result that the demand in Europe
for New York drafts greatly exceeds
the supply. Consequently, a high pre-
Mium must be paid and the cost of our
goods to our foreign customers is cor-
respondingly higher. If such a situa-
tion were allowed to continue, prices
would reach prohibitive figures And
our lucrative foreign trade would be
cut off.
There are severgl possible means of
offsetting the balance against Europe
sufficiently to stabilize the rates of ex-
change and reduce accordingly the
prices paid for our goods. The cus-
tomary method, that of shipping gold,
has been employed to an unusual ex-
tent, but has made little impression
upon exchange rates. It is not to the
interest of either America or Europe
that a considerable portion of the bal-
ance be paid in this way. Europe can-
not spare the gold from her reserves
at this time, and America would be ex-
posed to all of the ills which arise
from having a disproportionate share
of the world's gold. It was early sug-
g'ested that pressure be brought to
bear upon holders of American se-
curities in the various, countries af-.
fected by the exchange situation
with a view to coaxing or compelling,
if necessary, the sale of these hold-
ings on the New Yrk market. A
considerable volume of such securi-
ties has been disposed of by Euro-
peans who were actuated by patriot-
ism or by the less lofty motive of the
superior attractiveness of govern-
ment war loans, but unless coercion
is applied In the form of a prohibitive
tax, the future sale of American se-
curities by foreign holders is not
likely to have any material effect
upon the exchange market. There re-
mains to be considered one other
means of stabilizing exchange, viz.,
the borrowing in this country of the
funds with which to pay for "ship-
ments abroad. It was to this means
that the governments of France and
England turned, when they dis-
patched a commission to America, a
few weeks ago, in search of a loan.
The Anglo-French representatives
came prepared to ask for a loan of a .
billion dollars, but after a conference
with New York bankers, the amount
was cut in half. It was the opinion

One of the most fascinating tome-
dies ever presented will be seen at
the Whitney theatre on Thursday, De-
cember 16, when Henry Miller and
Ruth Chatterton appear in Jean Web-
ster's "Daddy Long Legs." "Daddy
Long Legs" was first written as a
series of letters in a magazine and at
once attained wide popularity. Henry
Miller, the famous actor, read the book
one day, and in the role of Juddy Ab-
bott, he at once saw a wonderful part
for Ruth Chatterton, the brilliant youn"
girl who had become famous over
night when she appeared with Mr. Mil-
ler in, "The Rainbow." Miss Chatter-
ton scored an instantaneous hit in the
role, playing in both Chicago and
New York City. During this time
Mr. Miller had found a most con-
genial role in the part of "Daddy Long
Legs" himself, headed another com-
pany and toured the country with
tremendous success. This season Klaw
and Erlanger present Mr. Miller and
Miss Chatterton as co-stars with an
ideal supporting company.
