The ECA'» economy axe, he said, must fall on these heavy goods since fuel and raw materials cannot be cut without, Impairing present production. Pood, h« emphasized, cannot be trimmed without Impairing the effectlvenes* of European labor. "Consequently," he said, "the only thing he could do Is to eliminate supplies of capital equipment from the year's program." Hoffman told the committee that most of the machinery on which ECA had planned lo spend 11,100,000,000 has to be obtained from the United States.
