WASHINGTON, March 10.-(I)--
Secretary of the Treasury William 1.
Woodin in a statement early 'today
said it would be the policy of the
treasury to open sound banks of the
country as rapidly as possible, and
invited them to make application
for reopening.
The, secretary said the treasury al-
ready has taken steps to secure in-
formation as to the condition of the
various banks. of the country, but
that it was found that completion of
assembling the information and of
arrangement for the banks to re-
sume their functions would take some
time. It was therfore decided, he
said, not to authorize any reopenings
before Saturday, March 11.
He said regulations governing re-
opening and other subjects govern-
ed by the emergency banking legis-
lation would be published immediat;i-
Woodhin Statement
The statement of the secretary, is-
sued early this morning said:
"The emergency ianking legislation
passed by the congress Thursday is
a most constructive step toward the
solution of the financial and banking
difficulties which have confronted
the c o u n t r y. The extraordinary
rapidity with which this legislation
was enacted by the Congress harkens
and encourages the country,
"This legislation makes possible the
opening of banks upon a sound basis,
but by an adequate supply of cur-
rency. Though this law, the banks
which will open will be placed in a
position to meet all demands. This
assurance should restore confidence
and create the foundation for a for-
ward movement in business activities.
"It will bec the policy of the treas-
ury to permit as rapidly as possible
the opening of sound banks. There
