In one Spartacan nest, it is re

American Business Men View
With Alarm After the War
Economic Adjustment on
London, March 13. Free trade
newspapers, are sharply criticising
the government's policy regarding
importations as disclosed by Sir
Auckland Geddes, minister for na
tional service and reconstruction in
the House of Commons, Monday.
He said that all importations of
manufactured and semi-manufactured
commodities permitted to en
ter Great Britaifi will be controlled
by a system of special licenses un
til September 1, when the question
will be "reviewed."
The newspapers denounce this
proposal as an attempt to introduce
protection without any mandate
from the voters and insist that a
great majority of the voters are op
posed to a protective system. They
say that Great Britain gained its
commercial and financial supremacy
through free trade and can hold it
only by free trade."
From the viewpoint of importers,
the license system handicaps them
with all the disadvantages of a pro
tective tariff without the stabilizing
virtue of certainty. They say that
they do not know whether to plan
to do any business, because they
caniivi count on being licensed to
import any given quantity of prod
ucts. England is swarming with Ameri
can business men, who came over
fully expecting to re-establish their
old connections as soon as the vital
factor of tonnage permitted. They
have the tonnage now, but find that
official barriers have been erected
against their using it.
Some think they have a grievance.
They kept up their British establish
ments at loss during the war on the
expectation of doing business im
mediately after the close of the
struggle. The process of obtaining
important licenses is that each pros
pective importer must present his
case to the board of trade and to
the controller of imports.
Consider Each Case.
Each case is dealt with on its
merits, as the controller judges it
from the importer's standpoint and
thj board of trade's first consider
ation is whether the goods in ques
tion can be obtained from English
firms. If they can, the license is re
fused. Conspicuous among the American
products which find themselves
against what virtually amounts to a
Stone wall, are motors, boots and
The self-governing dominions of
Great Britain are exempt from the
difficulties the government's policy
imposes on foreign merchants.

ONE of the big advantages of Grant Trucks is their
handiness in tight quarters. We know of no other
trucks built that have so large a pay-load space as com
pared with the length of the truck, yet in the standard
models the body extends only 16 inches beyond the
In the modef 12 there is full seven feet, in Models 10 and 15
full nine feet, and in Models 11 and 16 full eleven feet of pay

Grant Trucks are built to give maximum loading space- with
out sacrificing convenience in getting into and out of narrow
alleys and driveways, badly placed loading platforms, crowded
yards, wharfs and warehouses.
Electric starting and lighting saves time and fuel, makes a
more serviceable, smarter and more efficient truck, and by en

cause it is a subject of greatest in
terest to business men everywhere
and a source of controversy be
tween different schools of British
economists. It is looked upon as the
beginning of an important chapter in
the after-the-war economic adjust
ment. The arguments of the free traders
have been roughly summarized by
th Morning Post, which is the
strongest protectionist paper -in
Great Britain. It also points out the
possible weakness of the temporary
licensing measure, saying: "Ve be
lieve the licensing system is a vici
ous system. It leads to favoritism
and corruption and leaves too much
discretion in the hands of the of
ficials. At the beginning of the war,
if the government had been honest,
it would have accepted the logic
of the situation and imposed a tarilT,
