The.policy for defeated Germany was outlined in a letter to Foreign Economic Administrator Leo Crow ley instructing mm to undcrUkc studies to insure that Germany shall not become a menace ngtitn to sue cccding generations. The Chief Executive listed eigl points lo be included in Crowlej studies. They range from expoi control to prolonged nnd drnst control of Geimnny's war Industrie However, Roosevelt did inslmc Crowlcy to make appropriate cuts i the FEA's foreign procurement pro gram after Germany is benle "This is necessary," he said, "to pro vent undue nnd unnecessary nnan cial losses to American taxpayeis Pacific War Not AiTecfed But the President ndded mimed atcly that the relaxations should i no way interfere with tlie success ful prosecution of the war agains Japan. Mr. Roosevelt snid the floi of lend-lease aid should be contin licit in the amount necessary to en able the combined strength of r, the United Nations to dcfent 01 common enemies as quickly as pos sible." Before turning from the discus sloti of Europe, Mr. Roosevelt de nled recent stories of n split withi Jils cabinet on policies to be fol •lowed towards the Germans afte ; the war. All he had to say was tins "Every story Hint has come on nbouHhls situation has been essen tialtf untrue in the basic facts." Then Mr.' Roosevelt turned th .spotlight on Argentina. He gave tha South American nation a verba tongue lashing. The President no only denounced Argentina, for sub milting to "increasing Nazi in flu encc, but he ehaiBed that she i seeking lo undermine the America: republics by spreading word tha Allied councils divided on policy to •ward Argentina * F Russians Not I Inn'!.
