One of the United States delegates hinted that such a new proposal might be presented at tlie morning meeting of the steering committee, composed of the chiels of delegations at 11 a.m. This meeting will be in advance of tlie inaugural session at 4 p.m. The American delegate declined to give any hint of the nature of the expected mysterious proposal. But he indicated it might be sensational. Some delegates here have been toying with the idea ol putting the conference on record in opposition to Communist expansion as a gesture of f.upport for the U.S. agahr.t Russia.

Officials wondered whether Congress proposed to increase the $5,.100.000,00) ERP phase ol the bill now under study, or lo Include Spain lu that amount. Tlicy said n reduction of tlie amount proposed for the other countries would be serious. In approving the 3pan- ish amendment, however, the House did not vote to boost ERP funds. Officials listed among steps that would have to be taken if Spain Is included «lie following: 1. Spain would have to prepare an estimate of Its entire, economic situation, and project It for the next four years. 2.
