By Senators Husband Begs Forgiveness Program /Hitch Say Marshall Testifies 'Vandenberg Appeals to Mai-shall for Help in Controversy WASHINGTON, # -- Secretary of State Marshall today de- scibed as wholly incorrect speculation that he would resign if Congress fails 'to enact a European-- recovery, program in the manner he proposes. WASHINGTON, UP--A Republican and a Democrat urged today that coftgress ;put party differences aside and join in support of a European- recovery program. Senator Hatch (NM). the Democrat, carried his proposal further with"an appeal for joint action on legislation to curb inflation. Senator. Smith (NJ), Hatch's Republican colleague on the Senate Foreign Relations committee, called for a "non-political" settlement of the administration-GOP argument over who shall operate the Marshall plan for European recovery. With Secretary of State Marshal-1 standing firm on the contention that he must control vital policy decision^ .Smith told a reporter he. thinks a compromise is imperative -with house Republicans coi^orStte'B? ^set-'-up; to administer the -foiPeigri aid- program. "But it must be a compromise without politics in it," the New Jersey-senator declared. . Smith earlier had urged Congress to avoid "political implications" and make- the- assistance program an "ali-Amerkan "plan." .In a speech prepared for Senate delivery, Hatch proposed that the foreign, relations committee to consider President Truman's proposal for a 51-month program of -economic aid for Europe expected to cost $6,800,000,000 (billion) in the first. 15. months. ..- · ·The' 5 New Mexico Democrat said this -representative group could agree on an "America'n policy" with regard'to foreign affairs and predicted the House would back up such a decision and that it would be approved, by the president. "If party politics guides or directs any of us in these critical days of destiny," Hatch declared. "Only disaster can or will be the result. '"The people do not want a Republican European recovery program. With equal vigor, 1 ;issert the country doe.s-.not want a Democratic European · recovery program. What the country wa'nts and what the-country needs and what the people are demanding is a United American program." Hatch praised Chairman Vandenberg (R-Mich) of the Foreign Relations committee for what lie described as the Michigan Senator's example of a "non-political and non-partisan approach .to these world wide .issues." In this rote Vandenberg appealed fo Marshall for help in solving what ho said may be the "greatest controversy" facing congress over the foreign aid program-how it. is to be operated. Marshall put -the weight of his personal prestige behind an appeal to" the committee yesterday for approval of: President Truman's plan for a separate administrator fully accountable to the secretary of state and the National Advisory Council for any decisions affecting foreign policy. Senator George (D-GA) complained -that the administrator in this case would bo "rubbed thin with -advice." But Marshall contended that practically «very move made to assist the 16 western European nations who are in line for aid would affect foreign policy. He insisted that the country "cannot have two'secretaries of state" and that he thus must have final responsibility. Van'dehberg, sensitive to Republican demands for a "business" administration of the aid funds, told Marshall he hopes the state department will continue to work toward some compromise that will prov'idd "more adequate and more specific liaison between the business administration- and the foreign policy administration" of the prograrn. '·· "It is a question that involves the greatest controversy in the Senate and House," the Michigan senator said. "It is -a--question of duality of responsibility. There- must be maximum Independence for business management on the business side And yet completely effective foreign policy adminis- *b* Jpretgri: policy Aie."

(AP Wirephoto) Dewey to Use Same Team in 1948 Campaign "NEW YORK, (JP)~Gov. Thomas E. Dewey's national campaign for the Republican presidential nomination will be guided by the same triumvirate who conducted his presidential drive in 194.4. Edwin F. Jaeckle, former New- York State Republican chairman, confirmed National Brownell, today that he, former Chairman jr., and J. Herbert Russel Sprague, national committeeman for New York, were directing the governor's pro-convention campaign. Jaeckle, who recently returned | fo the Dewcy fold a f t e r a r i f t , lold Ihc Associated Press in Buf- J falo: "Of course, Brownell, Sprague and myself have been interested in Ihc governor for many years. We're acting nnmnx ourselves because, a f t e r all, we're the same three who wanted him to become president before." ALBANY, (JP)--State revenues are running $42,000,000 higher than a year ago and will reach an all-time high of more than :$7tju 000,000 by ehe end of the fiscal year, reliable sources said ioday. They based their forecast on state tax commission collections oi $500.40n,noo for the first nine months of the fiscal year period ending Marc-i 31. The anticipated 12-month revenue total of $700,000,000 would be nearly $30,000,000 above Governor Dewcy'.s estimates and SlS.OOO.OOo ever the previous high. Deficiency Appropriation The legislature is expected to act Monday night on Dewey's rt_- ouest for deficiency appropriations of S2o,217,900 t h a t virtually will wipe out any operating surplus that might have resulted from the revenue increase.

He is working now to keep the 1943-49 budget, which will be the highest in New York history, from going over $750,000.000.

(AP Wirephoto) Truman Plans Lead To Bankruptcy-Tart WASHINGTON, OB -- senator' Taft (R-Ohio) cabled President Truman's legislative program the road to "national bankrupcy" and a "totalitarian state" and promised today that the GOP-con- program, make every effort to cut government expenses, and "really cut all taxes and the tax burden and cut them for good." Taft, a candidate for the Repub- trolled Congress will never follow I l i c a n PresiL-enlial nomination, went on the radio last night to icply to Mr. Truman's state-oft he-union message which Republicans have been calling a "campaign speech" aimed at next fall's elections.

United Nations Draws lip Bans For Holy Land Commission Faced with Most Difficult Assignment on UN History LAKE SUCCESS, UP) -- The United Nations Palestine commU- sion was called into its first session today -to start work on the most difficult undertaking ever assigned to a U.N. agency. Jt must put into effect the general assembly's plan to partition I the 'Holy Land, where deadly vio- f lence already is daily routine. I Secretary-General Trygve Lie was set to open the 11 a.m. (EST) _ meeting with a grim warning of the difficulties ahead. A close as- 'sociate said he v/ould tell the five- member body frankly it might need military force to.set up the governments of the proposed new Jewish and Arab countries. Up to Commission Lie had told newsmen previously that the question of security forces svas one for the commission itself to decide and that if such forces were deemed necessary the commission must take the issue to the 11-nation security council. This was one of the first big questions before the new agency, which was created by the U.N. assembly last Nov. 29 to carry out partitioning of Palestine into Jewish and Arab countries by Oct. 1. Members, of the partition commission are Dr. Karel Lisicky of Czechoslovakia, Raul Die/: De Medina oi.' Bolivia, Per Federspiel of Denm-ir!-:, Dr. Eduardo Morgan of _ Panama and Senator Vicente J. j Franchco of the Philippines. Quite apart i:-om .the question of military forces 1 n back up the commission's decisions was the problem of providing for guards to assure the personal safety -of the · commission members and 'the . UJNi secretariat personnel to it. Security Force Lip sgid yesterday that body- guarding also was a question for the -commission to decide, but he said that, if necessary, he would make available some men of the uniformed private security force which now guards U. N. headquarters at Lake Success. Another urgent problem facing the commission was to arrange with Britain for admission of the U.N. agency and its staff to Palestine in time to set up provisional governments by the April 1 deadline set by the assembly. A British spokesman said Sir Alexander Cadogan was standing by to discuss this question with the commission as soon as -that body- was ready. The spokesman said, however, that Cadogan expected to insist that, the commission wait, until late in April or early in May to enter the Holy Land.
