THURSDAY, MAY 13, 1048 Defense Pledge Details Sought Senators Art Wary , Of Supporting Bill To Back UN Aid Pacts WASHINGTON, May 13 (UP) Wary Senator* yesterday ask^d for more detail before giving approval to a resolution which would urge the United states to support mutual defense pacts under the Uniud .N 3 [10] IS. The resolution was drafted bv Chairman Arthur H. Vandenberg &,„?• ",, ot the S *" ate ^> r <^'> Relations Committee. It had state Department approval and Vandcn- SnluL': 01 ** for approval b * ^ But committee members qu es . tioned several points of the resolution Apparently the big sticking point was the question of whether the resolution could be construed as a promise of future military aid 10 such countries as recently agreed to a mutual defense pact in Western Europe. Vandenberg Insisted that his proposal would not make U. S. commitments to Europe. "What subsequently Is Involved is subject to agreements later adopted by constitutional processes," rie said. The resolution would not legally bind tiie United States to any action, it would advise the president to follow certain lines. It also proposes putting certain restrictions on the big power veto in the United Nations. :n no event, said Vandenberg is a program similar to war-litre envisaged. Members of his committee decided to give more consideration to the resolution, it may be brought up again next Tuesday, Sen. Walter p. George, D., Ga., told a reporter that some committee members wasted more details on how far the U. S. might be committed eventually for support of mutual defense arrangements. George said that some members also were hesitant to approve the resolution Immediately because of concern that it would be ir.lsinter- preted by Russia as a move to slam the door on future U. S.-Soviet consultations over outstanding East-West problems. Centenarian Plus When Mrs. Frances Acosta, of San Francisco, was born back in 1844, James K.
