The New Year.
Washington. D. C Jan. 1. (By the
Associated Press.) Secretary Alex-
ander of the department of com-
merce summed up the cosamerchU
outlook for 191 in part as follows:
"The closing year witnessed a fab-
ulous growth of American foreign
commerce. Our trade balance for j
1919 will be approximately four Ml
lions. A great fleet of merchant
ships new industries new sources of
supply and Increased knowledge of
our own resources are some of the
assets gained from our war experi-
ence. Before the war we were on-
gaged for the most part in the de-
velopment of our own business with
little serious thought of extension of
onr activities into world markets
and we were too indifferent as re-
gards our position of inferiority on
the high sea a Today we are awake
as never before. The pride of ante-
bellum days Is revived and we look
to see onr flag at the masthead of
an American merchant ship In every
im;rUIlt Maport or the world car-
rylna; American goods wherever mar-
kets may be found.
TSeed Freer aennnge.
"Abnormal conditions we hope are
passing. The tremendous Increase la
exports of the war period made tin-
largely of military supplies and the
still greater exports of the months
following the war. in which food-
stuffs f'gured largely may not con-
tinue Indefinitely. These tremendous
figures have brought satisfaction to
all. but gave grave concern to those
who look forward to 1930. The ex-
change in Europe Is a grave problem
and so uncomfortable for foreign
buyers as to necessitate In some
cases government restrictions on
buying. If we would continue onr
foreign trade at its present high
level there must be freer and fuller
exchange of commodities and a large
extension of credit to Euronesw buy-
ers. So let us find a condition la
