It allowed $5,980,719,288 for .even rin Pi 8 " pro * rams . Including the critical European recovery program but warned that the money will hnve to do for 15 months instead ol 12 because: "The gradual but steady depiction or this country's resources makes it mandatory that Congress take every reasonable precaution to safeguard the dwindling assets and domestic economy ot this nation." In effect, the reduction amounts to about 25 per cent—consisting of the actual cut and the fnct that the money will have to stretch three months longer. The Sate Department wanted to spend $6,533.700,228 over tt 12-month period ending next April 30 European aid chief Paul Hoffman had warned that even that might not be ™ Aid to Europe Slashed The European aid program, set up to halt the march of communism in Western Europe, bore the brunt of the committee's economy axe. For this purpose it recommended $4.000,000, 000 a reduction of $245,000,000. The committee pared the Greek- Turkish aid program from $215,000.000, saying the Greek guerrillas will be "substantially if not completely liquidated by the end of this Summer." It completely erased ^150,000,000 for Japanese economic reconstruction—a program which had Gen- Douglas MsicArthur's hearty support. It explained that if there are any funds available from European aid they can be diverted to Japan. And the committee ordered the diet of Europeans in displaced persons camps reduced to the level of the country in -which the camps are 5^ located.
