Sterling Improves The pound sterling showed some improvement cariy (his year when the Churchill government put a new austerity program into effect. But Britain's foreign trade took n turn for the worse. And now there arc new rumors of a fresh devaluation of the pound. Some even suggc&t it might be set loose to seek its own level. The British government denies any devaluation plans—as governments always do. The New York sterling market Is skittish.

While most people reading about (lie debate In Congress now have a more or less detached View, it is still possible to get to the basic question in the whole dispute: Mini Knmvs llrttrr? Who knows better how much we should spend on foreign aid, the government officials handling It or Congress. The officials claim they know belter, Congress claims It does. Briefly, this I.s the story'lo date: The foreign aid being given now is different from the foreign nid given under the old Marshall TMan. That was strictly economic aid, intended to get Europe buck on its feel, But now the-l.f>-S.-»s engaged on such a world-vvirte scale with communism that all tho aid i.s, in a sense, military aid since its pur IKI.-.C: i.s to help allies ubitnid stand firm ttg»inst, the Communists.
