  With respect to the amount and collection of duties on imports and
exports of every kind, each of the two High Contracting Parties binds
itself to give to the nationals, vessels and goods of the other the ad-
vantage of every favor, privilege or immunity which it shall have
accorded to the nationals, vessels and goods of a third State, whether
such favored State shall have been accorded such treatment gratui-
tously or in return for reciprocal conpensatory treatment. Every
such favor, privilege or immunity which shall hereafter be granted
to nationals, vessels or goods of a third State shall simultaneously
and unconditionally, without request and without compensation, be
extended to the other High Contracting Party, for the benefit of itself,
its nationals, vessels, and goods.
                            ARTICLE IX
  Neither of the High Contracting Parties shall establish or maintain
any import or export prohibition or restriction on any article originat-

High Contracting Party in favor of an article originating in or des-

of the other High Contracting Party.

form of quantitative restriction or control of the importation or sale
of any article in which the other High Contracting Party has an
interest, or imposes a lower import duty or charge on the importation
or sale of a specified quantity of any such article than the auty or
charge imposed on importations in excess of such quantity, the High
Contracting Party taking such action shall, upon request, inform the
other High Contracting Party as to the total quantity, or any change
therein, of any such article permitted to be imported or sold or per-
mitted to be imported or sold at such lower duty or charge during a,
specified period, and shall allot to the other High Contracting Party
for such specified period a proportion of such total quantity as origi-
nally established or subsequently changed in any manner equivalent
to the proportion of the total importation of such article which the
other High Contracting Party supplied during a previous represen-
tative period, unless it is mutually agreed to dispense with such allot-

total quantity of importations into its territory or sales therein of any
article in which the other High Contracting Party has an interest by
import licenses or permits issued to individuals or organizations, unless
