PAOB TWELVB Don't Cut Economic Or Arms Assistance For Europe-Ike' WASHINGTON, Sept, 25. Gen. Dvi'lght D. Eisenhower was Quoltd last night by Rep. HJchards (D-PC) as urging (hat no drastic cut4 be irmdo by Congress in U.S. economic or arms aid to Western Europe. Richards, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said the word came In a personal cable to him from the general, commander of the North Atlantic Defense Army. Richards did not make public the cable, but he said Elsenhower did say that the economic structure of th« United states had io be con- aidered in any aid program. Tlie congressman said he asked the general which Is more important: providing direct nnns afd to Western Europe, or giving economic old which will enaljle U.s, Allies there to build up their own military production. Each Is Important ; Eisenhower replied, Richards told a reporter, that one was as Important aj the other arid he JiopeiJ neither would be cut drastically. Richards heads House conferees trying to resolve differences with the Senate over the size of the foreign aid program, to be authorized for the current year. The Senate voted $7.286,250.000; the House *7,498,750,000. President Triuiiai' asked for $8.500,000,000. Some lawmakers have propose! further cuts when the actual monc> If voted. The conferees tentatively settlcc one of their differences yesterday Tot-ing to set up a threc-yenr suc- ceasor to the Economic Cooperation Administration. ECA Is due tn dl« next year. The new agency would operate tor the life of (he three-year military aid program. Part of Assistance Se(-Un If approved, this agency would become part of a foreign assistance fetup administered by individua government departments. An ad. mlnL«j-ator serving as an executive assistant to the President would have final say on all disputes. This would be a compromise between the version of a separate foreign aid agency and the Senate's proposal for Individual departments to handle the program subject to a coordinator In tiic White House.

Today, we Americans are willingly giving up some of our rights and freedoms — temporarily. As the price of rearming, we're giving the government vast powers over our plans, our business, our way of life. The danger is that these powers may become permanent. Some people want them to. These are the people who, for years, have been saying, "The government ought to own and run things. The railroads, for example ...and the electric light and power companies."
