Flexibility Sought in Latin Aid RIO DE JANEIRO MR-- razil plans to push for great' flexibility in Alliance for regress financing at the m- ual meeting of the Inter merlcan Economic end Seal Council in Buenos Aires ter this month. Brazil's proposals include Imination of the require- ents that U.S. aid funds be pent in the United States nd that at least half of U.S. nanced goods be shipped in merican-flag ships. Planning Minister Roberto !ampos, architect of Brazil's conomic stabilization pro ram, will head the Brazilian elegation. t t t t BRAZILIAN sources doubt he United States will sup tort the first proposal but lope for acceptance of the econd. "With the war in Viet Nam mtting the squeeze on U.S. hipping, there just aren't nough ships to go around," me official said. American-flag ships are also more expensive. By permitting a large share of aid cargoes to be carried in foreign bottoms its ultimate cost would be reduced, the Brazil ans argue. Delegation sources say that while they .don't expect.the United States to permit complete flexibility in the spend- ng of-its foreign aid, it may at least allow part of it to be spent within Latin--America. F a s t e r disbursement -of authorized loans is also advocated. A report says . that more than $2 billion in auth orized.-Alliance for Progress loans have not yet been spent.
