PJLCX EIGHT MLYTHBVILLI (AM.) BATUKDAT, MAY tT, U.S. Military Interest to Play Big Part in Economic Program Jbifuaries Br JOHK M. BIOHTOWER * 'WASHINGTON, May 27. W)— American military Interests will play B vital part in White Housa development of a new gloljal economic program k> succeed the Marshall tier:. Offlotek Mid today this fact is l««ect«d in the appointment of •Kacy Voorhees, former undersecretary of the Army find now a consultant lo Army Secretary Frank Pace, as a member of the staff of Presidential Assistant- Gordon Gray. Gray, himself a former Army sec- M^ary, was named by the President; writer this year to direct a government-wide study of what the United States should do to keep an aclc- rjuatc supply of dollars In the hands of friendly nations when the rnulti- billton-dollar European Recovery Program ends In 1952. Involved hi this project are three matters having an Important bearing on national defense: (A) The necessity of Insuring imports for the nation's stockpile of strategic materials; (B^ the effect of U. S. economic planning on the occupation of Germany and Japan; and (C) the need to protect vital American defense Industries from the possibly harmful effects of European competition. This group hopes to complete a report to the President sometime In August. It Is expected that recommendations and a general lion- partisan program of action will be ready in time for Mr. Trumnn U> present the matter to Congress In hi« State of the Union message next January. Present Speculation . Trie present speculation, based on information already In the hands ol the. government, is that Gray will find two main lines of American action desirable when the Marshall Plan ends. The first in an increaste In import*, particularly from the Marshall Plan countries, In order to give them more of the dollars they need to buy the products which this country can supply. , , The second speculative line of •ciion Is that some new American government loans or grants will be required to further build up dol- )«• supplies abroad. : In the matter of stockpiling strategic material, Gray—acting on information received by Voorhees from mHH-nfy sources—presumably will try to set that the United States Us awaren In future programs ns It h«« been • hi the .Marshall Plan agreement* of access to necessary (trategic materials obtainable onlj In Imports The third factor of military importance ooccerns increased American import* from Western" Europe Secretary of Slate Acheson has said *•* this will inevitably disrupt •ome American businesses. Military leaders want to be sure that no U.S. Industries are affected which might b« eesential in any future war. W. W. Minyard Services Held Services for W. W. Minyard, fa- her of W. II.

He wants them only f they can be obtained by avoiding —in every case except public utlll- ,!es — "the drndlng regulation of government bureaus attempting to ix prices, practices, and quotas in 'ree industries." Liberals may properly object to this Toll analysis of Truman's^ nethods and of what the President* wants for the country. Taft indulges in considerable exaggeration. Truman does the same thing in talking about'- the reactionaries. That's politics and only to be expected. If yon know how lo take It. In no sense, however, can Truman bo called a conservative. His speeches all through the west'were booster stuff. He advocated everything beliiR bigger and better — dams, crops, programs, benefits, income, The specific items In the Truman program to which Senator Taft objects most strenuously are the Branllan farm plan, national health insurance, government taxing and spending of 25 per cent of the national income, the sfi.OOO.OOO.OOD deficit, the International Trade Organization, reduction rl tariffs and repeal of the Taft-Hartley law. Senator Taft Is also against Alger Hiss, hushing up ol the Amerasia case, Kansas City crime, John Maragon, General Vaujhan. Mayor Curley. Henry Wallace, Harry Hopkins, Yalta. Potsdam and the "pro- Communist policies of our -State Department." which he says placed Russia In a position where it is & threat to the world. It is largely an anti-Truman program. Everything that Truman Is for. Taft is against—except, perhaps. Truman's iciea that every family should have an income of S4000 a year by 1900. Taft seriou^f. says tie doesn't see why it couldf^ be $5000—under, certain conditions. Of course. Taft doesn't believe it could be S4000 tinder Truman's program. But Taft's bid of $5000 does top what he calls Truman's "vague promises."
