Credit Regulations As War Mea sure Now Effective Franklin merchants who carry charge and installment accounts for the convenience of their customers have made a statement in this issue explaining in a brief way how the new government regulations will apply to them. Regulation "W laid down by the Treasurer of the United States and Board of Governors of the Fed eral Reserve System 'instructs re tail dealers how charge and install ment accounts may be carried in the future. All charge accounts must be settled in full by the 10th day of the 2nd calendar month following the month in which the purchase was made, or credit will be cut off.
