Then Congress voted 11.000.000,000 to supply them arms. Actually, they will receive from us arms worth about tl,«0,000,000. This is why: We'll «end them three kinds of military equipment: excess stuff, reserve stuff, and brand new squip- ment. 1. Excess — Now we have on hand a number of items of military equipment over and above what our military planners think we may ever need, even in case of war. This is considered unneeded, excess material. We'll send some of that. But—Congress said \ve cannot send abroad excess equipment which, altogther, originally cost more than $450,000.000. .That same excess equipment, If made now, Cor Thief Converts His Stolen Auto into Diesel-Burning Job LITTLE ROCK, Oct. 24. Wj— A Tampa, Pla., owner may decide to thank the man who stole his car last May. Stale Police Lt. H. R. Peterson said Ernest G. Roberts, 32, told him lie had converted a 1948 model car stolen in Tampa, to burn Diesel fuel. And at the Pulaski County Jail Roberts boasted that on a trip to California, he obtained 15 more miles a gallon than he would have on gasoline. Peterson checked the fuel tank and It contained Diesel fuel. He said he Is having mechanics investigate details of the conversion. Roberts said it was done by-run- niug the luel line through the exhaust manifold and a "square box" but added, "you'll have to tear it apart to find what's in it. That's my secret." Peterson said Roberts who served I a four-year term in Texas for em- might cost double the $450,000.000 bezzlement and three years in federal prison tor car theft, also is wanted in California and Texas for when It was made.) Tr> Furnish ExcesK Equipment We'll send Europe the $450.000,000 in excess equipment allou'ed by Congress. This, added to the $1.000,000,000 voted by Congress for the program, will bring our total arms help to Europe to around $1.450.000.000. 2. Reserve Stuff — We have on hand now, but stored away, a lot of equipment which or military planners figure we'll need in time or war, but don't need now. We'll send some of that reserve to Europe. Bue we'll have to replace it. Some of the $1,000.000,000 car theft and forgery. Baby-Sitter Takes Time Out to Have Own Child PORT ANGELES.

Brand New Material — Some of the equipment we'll send Europe will be brand new. We'll have to get that made. The rest of the Jl.000,000,000 fund will be used for that. This week State Department people start talking with representatives of.those eight countries which need arms. They'll . talk here : \n "Washington "and' draw up^'agree-f' ments. .. .. v ..,, Must Ajrrte tw Keep Secret ; The eight must agree to a num- ger of things, under the law passed by Congress, before we can send them arms. For example: 1. That they'll use our arms in accordance with the terms of the law. 2. That they won't hand over any of our arms to another country, without our permLs^m. 3. That they'll keep secret anything w e send them—i n cases where we want secrecy. Secretary gk>, of Defense Johnson says any west^ ern European country with a Com- muist in Its cabinet will get no arms aid or military secrets. 4. That in turn they'll furnish us—or any of the other eight— such assistantce as we or they require. For example: We might want Belgium to give us certain kinds of raw material in return for our keep. • . ' When the .agreements are signed here, we'll send teams of American political, economic and military experts to each of the other eight countries. There, with, the European experts, thye'll work out in detail what each country needs or wants and what \ve can send. The talks will take week; they are being figured on to be finished by Dec. 1. So a real flow of arms to Europe may not tart before Jan. 1. In additvn to the assistance f ; for Europe, congress voted $314,010,000 in help for Greece, Turkey. Iran, Korea, the Philippines.
