(if)— The* United Sloles Chamber of Commerce gave l(s endorsement today to a "modest «nd carefully considered" program o[ exportins American know-how to further the industrial development of backward lands. The Chambers policy declaration given unanimous approval at last nights closing session of ll.s 38th annual meeting, was one of very few resolutions endorsing the legislative program of president Truman.
