The new Dutch total is 4,000,000 guilders in bonds.
The Belgian Government has already granted permission for a bond sales campaign to be held in that country and the drive will be inaugurated October 15, it was announced. Mr. Montor said that the Swedish Government was about to grant permission for a similar campaign in that country and that substantial sales had already been made in Switzerland.
