MONDAY, APRIL 7, 1947 (ARK.)' CODUIKU NEWS Urgency of Loan Given Emphasis "External Pressure" Exerted on Greeks, Turks, Committee Says WASHINGTON. April 1. (UE>) — The senate Foreign RelationsCom- . initlce today informed Congroui li-rjl 1 - ''external pressure' 'on Greece • ami Turkey made American assistance "a matter of urgency." The committee made public detailed report on (lie Near East crisis to back up ils unanimous recommendation for approval of President Truman's $403,OCO,030 aid program. The diplomatically worded report dirt not name the source of the "external pressure" but only a few hours before it was released Sen. Walter P. George, D.. Ga., a ranking committee member, announced that his support for the President's program was based on belief that "it is vital for us fo check Russian expansion now." The committee's findings were based on lone hours of closer .sessions with Aclms Secretary of State Dean Aclicson and "up-to- the-minute" data furnished by Lincoln MacVeaKh, ambassador fo Greece, and Edwin C. Wilson, ambassador to Turkey. Tiic committee said Greece was threatened by Communist guerrillas apparently receiving "assistance aiM direction from sources outside Greece." Tt said Turkey wa s beset by a severe economic strain of maintaining large armed forces for ".is long as severe external pressure under which shn labors continues to be applied to her." Immediate objective of the pressure on Turkey, the committee . said, was lo "abridge Turkish con^ 1V> 1 of the Dardanelles," and 10 %V1 off parts of eastern Turkey from the rest of the country. "The ultimate objective," the report said, "might be lo deprive Turkey of her iiufipendence." The committee's reference to the Dardanelles -was the first intcr- jcclinn nf that strategic Mediterranean-Black Sea waterway into congressional debate. Russia on repealed occasions has asked lo bases on the Dardanelles and for a greater voice in administering the waterway.

During wurtlmc months of 1945. operations averaged 83.5 per cent of capacity. Today's potential finished -steel for peacetime uses is almost 16 per cent larger than in 1941. , Jury Hears Officer vVho Killed Man YELLVILLE, Ark., April 7. <UL») —Two brothers, Lufc ;uici Ch.irlc:; Kennedy, were m jail hoi 1 ^ tocluy on charges of assault with initial to kill and resisting cm o nicer.
