Application for Securities of Non-
German Origin in Western Germany

[Released to the press Mareh SO]

DATE FOR DEADLINE ANNOUNCED

In view of the nearness of the deadline for ap-
plication for release of cnrrencies and securities
covered by the Allied High Commission announce-
ment of March 24, 19.50, the Dejiartment of State
today called attention to that announcement.

Persons or corporations are requested urgently to
submit their application for release of the cur-
rencies- and securities to the authorities specified
in the press release before June 30, 1950, if they
have not heretofore done so.



HIGH COMMISSION ANNOUNCEMENT
OF MARCH 24, 1950

The Allied High Commission today announced :

1. Under the terms of a press release issued jointly on
September 1, 1948 by the United States, United Kingdom
and French military governments, all persons not subject
to Control Council Law No. 5 who own non-German cur-
rencies or securities in currency not of German issue held
by the Military Governments under the provisions of
Military Government Law number ,53, were invited to
submit application for the recognition of their title to
such currencies or securities. Applications could be filed
with the appropriate office of Military Government up to
December 31, 1948.

2. Under an agreement of the Allied High Commission
the time limit for submission of such aiiplicalions has
been extended to .Tune 30, lO.'iO. Api)lications which have
already been submitted need not be repeated.



3. In announcing this extended period for submission of
applications, the Allied High Commission draws attention
to the fact that persons (natural and juristic) in tbe fol-
lowing categories are included within the definition or
"persons not subject to Control Council law number 5."

(a) German citizens outside Germany, if they submit
proof that they have been residing outside Germany since
before September 1, 1939 and did not aid Germany during
the war. A certificate from a governmental authority in
the country or countries of residence establishing the
above must be submitted with the application ;

(b) Corporations organized under the laws of any
country other than Germany, regardless of the percentage
of German interest, if any, in such corporations. Corpora-
tions sliould present evidence of the amount of non-Ger-
man interest.

4. The Allied High Commission also announces that it
is prepared to consider applications from victims of Nazi
persecution resident in Germany, provided evidence is
submitted :

(i) That such persons were deprived of liberty pursuant
to any German law, decree or regulation di.?criminating
against religious or racial groups or other organizations,
and

(ii) That such persons did not enjoy full rights of
German citizenship at any time between September 1, 1939
and the abrogation of such law, decree or regulation, and

(iii) That .such persons did not act against the Allied
cause during the war, and

(iv) That their cases merit favorable consideration.

5. Consideration will also be given to applications from
corporations in Germany which are 25 percent or more
beneficially owned by United Nations nationals or victims
of Nazi persecution as defined in paragraph 4 above, or
which present proof of treatment by Germany as enemy
or under enemy control.

6. Filing of a claim with the Allied High Commission
does not imply recognition of title, or that title will sub-
sequently be recognized. Moreover, recognition of title
by the Allied High Commission does not imply recognition
of the applicant's claim by the country of issue or the
current validity of securities or currencies in the country
of issue.

7. A person desiring recognition of title to securities

U.S.S.R. Asked To Reinstitute
Diplomatic Discount Rates

[Releaaed to the press March «7]

The following is the text of a note delivered to
the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Moscow
on March 24, 1950:

Excellency, I have the honor, on instructions
to refer to Your Excellency's circular note of
February 28, 1950, advising the Embassy that the
Council' of Ministers of the Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics has decreed that the special
discount arrangement under which diplomatic
representatives in the Soviet Union may buy rubles
with foreign currencies in limited quantities is
established at reduced level for the period March
1 through June 30, 1950, and will be abolished
from July 1, 1950.

Tlie Government of the United States cannot
accept the reasons advanced in your circular note
of February 28 as justifying the indicated reduc-
tion and early abolition of the special diplomatic
discount arrangement. Need for such special ar-
rangement was recognized by the Soviet Govern-
ment itself through adoption of the original
preferential rate in 1941 in an effort to equalize the
purchasing power of the ruble with prevailing
world prices. The need for such an arrangement
still exists. Although the concept of an exchange
rate for the ruble in the accepted sense is, of course,
purely fictitious so long as the ruble is not an in-
ternationally traded currency; nevertheless, it is
possible to make a comparison of prices paid by
members of the Soviet Embassy staff in Washing-
ton with prices paid by United States Embassy
personnel in Moscow. Despite some reduction in
the Soviet price level since December 1947, prices
in Moscow are extremely high relative to prices
in "Washington. For example, white bread from
first grade flour was approximately 24 cents per
kilo in Washington in December 1947 and is cur-
rently 26 cents per kilo. In Moscow white bread
from first grade flour was 7 rubles per kilo in De-
cember 1947 and now, after recent ]>rice reductions,
is 5.60 rubles per kilo. At the discount rate of 8
rubles per dollar then established, the Moscow
price of white bread in December 1947 was equiva-



f



lent to over 87 cents per kilo as compared with 24
cents per kilo in Wasliington. The present Mos-
cow price of white bread on the 4 ruble per dollar
basis available to dii)lomatic representatives after
June 30, 1950 is equivalent to $1.40 per kilo as
