USE U. S. MONEY
MELLON ASKS THE PUBLIC
TO HELP CONSERVE
ASKS FOR THE BUDGET PLAN
The Nation Cannot Afford Extrava-
gance and So Far As Possible It
Must Avoid New Expendit-
Washington. — Secretary of the
Treasury Mellon, in his first official
statement made public in the form
of a letter to bankers, appealed to
"the people generally" to stand for
rigid economy in governmental ex-
penditures and urged the immediate
establishment of a national budget
The secretary discussed at length
the nation's financial condition, de-
claring that the showing made in the
last eight months has been "particu-
.larly encouraging." There are, how-
ever, heavy drains to come on the
treasury this month and next, he
added, and these require the flotation
of more short term certificates of in-
debtedness, announcement of which
he made coincident with the letter.
Economy Is Demanded.
"The nation cannot afford extrava-
gance," Mr. Nelson asserted, "and so
far as possible it must avoid entering
.new fields of expenditures. Figures
on current operations of the govern-
ment show that the country's fin-
ances are sound but that the situa-
tion calls for the utmost economy.
"The heavy requirements of the
government on account of necessary
expenditures, including interest and
sinking fund on the public debt, and
the maturity of $7,500,000,000 in
short dated debt in the next two years
or thereabouts, make it imperative
that the greatest care and economy
be exercised in matters affecting gov-
"The people generally must become
more interested in saving the govern-
ment's money than in spending it. A
thorough-going national budget sys-
tem must be established and the gov-
ernment's expenses brought into re-
lation to its income."
Treasury Saves Money.
The belief was expressed by Secre-
tary Mellon, however, that the first
nine months of the fiscal year or to
March 31, would show the treasury
has made ends meet with a slight sur-
plus to use against the great war
debt. Payments on the war debt must
necessarily be slow, he said, explain-
ing that the heavy payments to the
railroads would seriously hamper
previous plans to lower the debt.
•, The Issues of certificates announced
will aggregate >400,000,000 and will
bear interest at 5% per cent, half
having a maturity date of one year
apcl tb9 remainder for six months.
Both Issues will be accepted in pay
jnent of income and profits taxes.
$500,000,00 Is Needed.
He said $500,000,000 in certificates
much be paid off March 15 and an ad-
ditional $118,000,000 a month later.
Besides these needs, there is to be
paid the semi-annual interest on Lib-
erty bonds on March 15, a payment
of about $75,000,000. The treasury
also must make payments to the rail-
roads during March, which Mr. Mel-
lon estimated at $200,000,000.
To partially offset the heavy outgo,
the regular quarterly payment of in-
come and profit taxes is due March
15, from which the treasury hopes to
release approximately $500,000,000.
used up in retiring the certificates
This tax payment, therefore, will be
due on the same date. Funds ob-
tained from the new issues of certifi-
cates then will become available for
caring for other debts of which the
railroad payments and the small pre-
vious issues of certificates constitute
the greatest amount.

The declaration was. made in Mr.
Hoover's first statement aB a cabinet
member in which he announced the
policy of his department to be one of
service and not of "regulation of trade

jmeasures he said the only immediate
kextension of service would be in the
Jbbtaining of greater internal efficiency.

Rome turned its footsteps and

Tokio.—America must be willing to

as another indication of the "dark

Japan and America, already evidenced
by the strengthening of their defenses

It demands that both governments
strive to dissipate misunderstandings.
In this connection the Asahi Shim-
bun of Osaka says America's insist-

The Panama note, the text of

used by the American government as
a basis for further negotiations.

Says Depression Almost Over and
Looks for Improvement.
Detroit, Mich.—The worst of the
business depression is over, Henry
Ford, the automobile manufacturer,
said. He declared business was im-
proving steadily in Detroit and that
similar gains should result in other
parts of the country soon.
"Different conditions will prevail
after the readjustment than before the
war," he said. "There will be more
economy in every way, but the volume
of business will continually grow."
'The condition which is just passing
now ought to do more for world peace
and disarmament," Mr. Ford contin-
ued, "than all the writing and speech-
making and parleying in the world.
The war brought on a false prosper-
ity. What has followed the war has
proved it was false "
Production of the Ford factories is
