(UP) — Secretary of State George C Marshall said today that he Is. wor/nc on a global study of Ihe world's economic needs. But, he said, no immediate appropriation similar to that of the Greek-Turkish aid bill is in prospect. lie empliasi/.cd the word "Immediate." He exempted the situation in Korea, where he said the Stale and War Departments soon would have to ask Congress for an appropriation of about $200.000.000. Of this, SIB.000,000 would be lor rehabilitation purposes and the. rest lor occupation costs, Including food. Marshall 'made hb statement at a news conference in which he also disagreed .sharply with British For- cip.n Minister Krnesl lievin's charge that failure of the Moscow conference was due to the "full press coverage" given H l>y lhc_ American press. Tn contrast, Marshall said that general press coverage of such meetings was very Important. But, he added, he did not like the appeal to pa.sslon and prejudice which characterised many of the sti\c- menls made by foreign ministers. The cui'c Is not lo suppress press coverage, Marshall said, lie then was asked whether the cure was less appeal to passion and prejudice by the ministers themselves. Marshall replied that was his thought. Marshall also revealed that the State Department, ijndcr his direction, Ls following developments in Chinn very closely and trying desperately to find some way to help China economically In a manner that could be justified with Congress and the American public. tblltri] I'rrss Special CorrcsiHmtlcitt Kit.
