Just as the UnlUd State* has certain restrictions on shipment of such goods, such as airplane engines, so should the natloiu participating in th« European Recovery Program, Hoffman said. Trade between Eastern and West- em Europe should b« ' encouraged, he told » new conference. But the United States should be the judge of what commodities should be banned from shipment to Eastern Europe. This policy applies, Hoffman said, to Items produced In the ERP countries as well as Items purchased in the United Slates.

He said ECA is furnished with export information, to determine what goods are being shipped. The European Recovery Program, he said jubilantly, U "really under way."
