THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 1950 RLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COWUER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Truman's Aid to Europe Plan Attacked GOP Opens Big Drive Against ERP Program WASHINGTON, June 22, J.IP) — President Truman's program lor ^economic and military aid to West- Bern Europe was under heavy Republican attach today. The greatest pressure was being brought to bear in the Senate Appropriations Committee. A determined effort is being made there to cut down (he size of the Marshall Plan program, Congress authorized $2.950,000,000 for the third year of the European Recovery Program. But one Republican committee member told reporters he Is certain Ihta amount will be trimmed. Trim Is 1'osslble It looks as though we might be able to trim from $100,000,000 to $250,000.000 off the total," he said. In the same committee, President Trumun's Point Pour plan to give technical aid and assistance to backward areas of the world was under lire. An effort is being made to cut the S35.000.000 program and to make the record clear that Point Four will not be a toc-in-the-door move for smother foreign recovery program. Administration leaders showec some concern over an amendment to the foreign arms aid bill by Senator Lodge <R-Mass> to open up $5.000,000.000 in European recovery funds for military puqxxsQS. The Lodge proposal would permit Marshall Plan nations — U they vbjhed—to spend any part of the so-called counterpart funds for military needs. These funds arc lo- :nl currencies deposited by the European nations to match U.S. dollar aid. They were set aside to be used for economic projects. Trouble Foreseen Chairman Connally in-Tes> of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told a reporter the Lodge amendment would cause trouble, but would be defeated. Senator Kriowlaud (R-Calit) was prepared to ask the SJ'ialc appropriations group to limit the European Recovery Program—and the arms program—to a seven-monlh period. The Callfornlan said his move would be aimed at blocking trie seating of a Chinese Communist delegation In the United Nations.
