WASHINGTON, (&) The

While this was considered the

gold sales, compared with pur
chases, was perhaps more start
ling. Officials said foreign coun
tries have bought up enough gold
from U. S. stocks to cause a
$108,000,000 dip in the past seven
The major reason, they said,
appeared to be the persistent, repeatedly-denied
rumor that the
United States is planning to de
value the dollar which would
raise the dollar value of gold.
Officials said the failure o f
some countries to heed secretary
of the treasury Snyder's devafu

9 cents-per pound handling
charge on gold transactions, and
there are insurance and ship

Of Miners' Fund

Sen. Styles Bridges (R-NH) says
he and John L. Lewis are i n
"conflict", and' that payments
from the multi-million dollar
miners welfare fund must cease
Bridges, neutral trustee of
the fin), said he has demanded
that payments cease because he
claims further expenditures are
He said he has written h 1 s
demand to Lewis, trustee for the
union, and asked for a meeting
of the three fund trustees.
"I am deeply concerned at the
rate of expenditures from the
fund for the so-called hospital
and medical cases which we are
still paying," Bridges wrote.
"I am alarmed at the possible
obligations and liabilities incur
red but not yet paid."
Since expiration of the UMW
contract last June, payments
have been limited to emergency
hospital and medical cases. The
fund has fallen from S30.000.000
in June to about $12,000,000 last
month Bridges' office confirmed.
Bridges contends the fund i s
