TWO, 3LYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THI NATION .TODAY . , . J^man's Four-Point Program Gets Much Support in Congress Bui Final Phase Needs Attention ! • ' . 'f By Jamra Marlow , WASHINGTON, Sept. 27. (ff)—Bareheaded on blight, cold Jan. 20, prerideut 'Truman itood on tlie tempoiary wooden stand at the capltul f " nd deliverd hi* inaugural address, beginning his lull, (our-)ear term. IB that address fie outlined four* _ road*,down which h« thought the U.S. ahould travel in ita international; relation* in the' years ahead. He lUted them M four, points in this 'country'* foreign program' • ,. W« should continue: to stick by the United Nation* Thl* the VS \t doing'/ • J. We ahould continue our pro- (ranu -for world reco\ery For ex- imple, the Marshall pla.n Later tills year Congress^ voted to continue the IfanKall plan. • >. Wt. should help strengthen friendly nations against fear o! aggression.- Congress .has acted on that, too. It approved the Atlantic JM'ct, Uniting us in a military alliance with Western Europe. And then it voted arms for our allies. ' •Often Bold'New Program ; I. We inuit set out on a '^bold new program for making the benefits ot our jciehtifie advances and our in- duatrial, progress available for-the improvement and : growth of undei> developed areas." On this Congress ha»- done nothing this year,! is not expected to act before next year. ..-But sine* that January day the "bold n«w.program" has been known M-"point foui." It-ha.s, .received a tot.of attention. And Mr. Truman •fid"hU advisers have been pushing for, it. : ' Th*jr think point four, should be carried out in two main ways: I. By investing• American';'money —meaning American businessmen inventing their money—in .backward «reu to help build ttiem up. When businessmen invested 'their -money that , way It would be understood •'they'd be Investing to make a profit. • 7. By technical and scientific help. for example,- American engineers would be aent into the backward ueaa to teach the people there abme of the skills which have made thi» country »o advanced industrially. Folnt 4 Due Attention ' Mr/Truman'* advisers have sent two billa; to Congress to get approval of thoce two main plans for; carrying out point four: Under No. 1, Congress »ould guarantee that American businessmen' !would get ftome protection^on th» money they Invested In ttw btcnward places. For example,- a KuarantM th'at this country would protect them against loss if 'thtlr Inveetmenta % were selEed ' -? Under No. », congress is asked to "Vote $46,000,000 to cover the expenses of getting tlie technical part of the program under way. For example, the expense of sending engineers, •clectista or economic advisers Into the backward places 1 Today James E. Webb, undersecretary of state, was to go.before the HOUM foreign program: money for technical help to backward areas. Because Congress is so close to finishing up its work for IMS—or all the work It wis.ies to'flnlsh before going home—no action Is likely on point four before Congress returns in January to start its 1880 work.. Meanwhile, the U.S. Is taking part In various programs to help backward countries through international tl«-ups. For example: , , The food and agriculture organization and the wor'd health 'organization, both of which have sent experts Into countries which need help in heallh and farming worlc.

And that doesn't seem at all unusual to the top ctip of Honolulu— big Dan Liu, 40, a six-foot-one inch Chinese. , "We have at least a down nationalities on our police force," he laughed. "And rton't think we're without Irish cops." .', Liu is proud of the fact he himself worked lip through every rank to become the first Chinese chief of police of an American city. His force rcflecLi the polyglot population of the Island melting pot, "One third are Haivalians' -t)iey eally love to be policemen," ;aW >an. tion as catching criminals.' HLs force has a full program of sports, hobby training and recreational activities for K o n o 1 n 1« youngsters, and It mixes the kids of all races together at an early aije. •: "-Youths holds the key to our fu-: ture democracy,", said Dan. "It I* for that reason we try to work among the young so much—to teacK them the American tradition of good will and tolerance." , L'iti sets his police officers a good example by his own off-duty civic work. He is a leader In the local Council of Churches, the YMCA and Boy Scout activities.

Dan looks neither as niyst'erimis as 3harlie Chan nor as stolid >v the veragc police chief who.workedThi.? "Our crime rale is lower than many other cities of the same population group," said Dan, who believes Ihls is true largely because of the Islands' no-discrimination policy. He is married to a girl from Mississippi. Tv;o things make our I->Hnds what they are. One is the brotherhood of Aloha, which simply means love Jrom the heart without anything held back."
