WASHINGTON, Dec. 19. - () -
The Federal Reserve Board sees n
evidence of "over-expansion of busi
ness or of the use of business credit.
A joint statement of the boar
and its Open Market Committee is
sued after a study of thequestion
raised by the fact that banks hay
$3,310,000,000 in excess reserves, sai

in business conditions, although th
committee declared the nation is stil
short of "full recovery."

The statement listed the further

"The present volume of member
bank reserves, which have been great
ly increased by imports of gold fro
abroad, continues to be excessive, fa
beyond the present or prospective re
quirements of credit for sound busi

"Therefore, the special problem
created by the continuing excess o

In the statement observers saw dis
inclination on the part of the Open
Market Committee to follow the ad-

The present excess reserves -
which are sums in addition to the
balances which member banks are
required to keep on deposit with re-
serve institutions - are declared by
some economists to be the potential
basis for credit inflation.
BANKERS' VIEWS DIFFER
NEW YORK, Dec. 19. - (P) -
Oncehmore the House of Morgan
and the House of Rockefeller have
clashed on the, field of banking opin-
This time the issue is whether the
excess banking reserves of more than
$3,000,000,000 shall be reduced.
Dr. Benjamin M. Anderson, spokes-
man on things economic for the Chase
National Bank, of which John D.
Rockefeller, Jr., is the largest share-
holder, has advocated prompt and
vigorous measures for the reduction
of excess reserves.
S. Parker Gilbert, partner of J. P.
Morgan & Co., and former Under-
secretary of the Treasury, says, on
the other hand that no action should
be taken at this time to chop down
In his Oct. 30 address before the In-
vestment .Bankers Association of
America at White Sulphur Springs
Anderson contended reserve require-
ments ought to be raised promptly to
forestall the threat of a credit boom.
Gilbert, in a letter to the New York
Times, said. "The plain fact is that
there has been little or no expansion
of credit in the past year." This
comment he pointed up adding,
"There is thus no problem of 'injur-
ious credit expansion.' "
