THURSDAY, MAY 25. 1050 fARK.Y COUHTE* KRWH GOP Senators Seek Point Four Defeat Senate to Vote ' On Foreign Aid Plan Today WASHINGTON, May 25 —</!>)— Republican senators put on steam today in a stretch drive to defeat President Truman's $35,000,000 Point Four plan to aid backward areas of the world. The decision was due atT3:30 p.m. <EST), when the Senate was sched- ied to vote on a Senate-House onference deport on the $3,120,550,000 foreign aid program which contains the Point Four plan. Chairman Connally (D-Tex) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said the Democratic leadership had enough votes—some of them Republican—to approve the compromise authorization bill. Decision To Be Close But senators agreed generally the decision wonid be close. The Senate approved a different version of the Point Four plan last month only by the margin of a single vote—37-3S. Republicans under the leadership of Senator Taft of Ohio were trying to force the aid bill back into conference to be stripped of its Point Pour provisions. Not With ERP Senator Minikin (El-Colo) said the Point Four plan—the fourth point in President 'Truman's 1049 Inaugural address—should "not be mixed up with the dying European Recovery Program" which ends in 195?. Taft and other GOP lawmakers have charged the plan as now written could be the beginning of an endless program of economic aid to nations all over the world. And they say the "underdeveloped areas" conceivably could include Russia and her Communist satellites. _ /fe'u'- ConnalJy denied there is any Q»lre or mtent to help Communist countries through the Point Four plan—or that it would become another Marshall plan spending program. Communist Plan Senator Jenner (R-Ind) saw the Point Four plan "as part of the Communist plan to force the western world to destroy itself and to force America to spend herself into bankreptcy." Jenner said Earl Browder. former chief of the U.S. Communist party, was the "architect and advocate" of the Point Four plan which he said *as designed in Moscow. Both Jenner and Senator McCarthy IR-Wis) linked their criticism of the plan with Haldore Hanson, Stale EJepartment official who is in charge of technical planning. Hanson Denies Charge McCarthy said a Senate foreigi: relations subcommittee has testimony that Hanson was regarded of » Communist—an allegation Hanion has sharply denied, gftnner said he didn't know whether Hanson Is a "card-carrying Communist." But he added Hanson was helping to draft the program "which the Communists Death to Ride Highways May 30 CHICAGO, May 25.
