FACE FOURTEEN BLVTHEV1LLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8, I94» THi NATION TODAY— Truman Proposal for Arming West Europe Gives Signal for Another Parade to Wasfi/ngton Br James Marlow WASHINGTON, Aug. 3. (fly-H's when »'c get ituo Uie £oKign Held th»t th« Mr. Big Parade really begins in Washington. It President Truman asks to approve a foreign program he's worked out, you can sit In Topeka and call tne shot.s. His first team—the State Department. Army, ambassadors and so on—beats It up to congress to plug for the program. Thews nothing strange about* that. Congress would want to hear Iheir say-so, whether or not they wanted to go. It would be strange, though, it one of the team crossed up his bos*, Mr. Truman, and tore one of the programs to pieces. You don't see that happen often. And there's 3 good reason for that, Most of the team probably helped him put the program together In the first place. So the members of the team march up to the capito) day after nesses, would draw up bills for the House and Senate to vote fin. Right there a little nunpus started. Arms? The Senate Armed Knv- ire Committee thought it oilBlll. to handle the hearing- But it goes right to the heart of our foreign relations. So the SHiiue's Foreign RplatUins Committee thought it ought to handle the hcarinss. Joint Hearing Arranged The two proud committees finally .lew building or extensive repairs on the present building. To meet the requirements of these school needs a tax levy of 30 mills will be necessary. Therefore, the Board of Directors are submitting those proposals to the patrons of the district at ihe annual school election which will be held September 27, 1843.

' It's the forfign program which always seems to bring out the biggest boys in Washington. Take the arms-for-Kurope program. Mr. Truman dropped that into Congress 1 basket July 25 and »sktd I°r $1.450,000,000 to pay (or it. This was pretty hot, The Parade Starts That arms program had been one of the most talked-of things In ! Washington for months. Everyone j knew Mr. Truman was getting ready io hand it to Congress. It ^as just a matter of when. ' And it became clear before the messga* reached congress at all that there'd be some opposition to it. The arguments ran like this: INFORMATION HEAO-M.ij.- Gen. Floyd L. Parks, nbovo, now deputy commander in the Pacific, will succeed the late Maj.- Gen. Vernon E. PriU:hnr<I as chief of the Army Public Information Division. Genera! Parks served as informntion chief from 194G until August, 1948. Mr. Truman was asking too much money [or It; or he shouldn't have too much authority in using the money; or there shouldn't be such p program at alL- So Mr. Truman was going to have a bit of light on his hands to get It through. There'd have to be hearings before the congressional committees for the hearings on thi.s one program alone. They began to get ready for the hearings. Hut the Vlou^e Foreign Affairs Committee beat the Senate's combined committee by suiting 1 hearings of its own first. Once more the big parade moved up to the bill to put in a plug ior Mr. Truman's program and one by one the following testified before (lie Hou^e com 'ittee or sent a .statement to it: First, Secvelnvy ot State Ache.soiv, then Secretary "of Defense Johnson; then Gen. omar N. Bradley, army chief of staff; W. Averell Harrjman, loving ambassador for I lie Marshal! plan in Europe; Lewis Douglas, ambassador to Britain; Henry P. Giady, ambassador to Greece. General George c. Marshall, former secretary of state, was asked to testify by the committee and he did. in favor of ihe plan.
