(UP) —American j»rm equipment mon today blasted a\ "fantastic" President Truman's reported export goal for European relief under the Marshall plan. Georg« L. Gillette of Minneapolis. MJnn., vice president and general ules manager of the Mlnneapolls- Moline Power Implement Co., said that view did not, mean Implement men were not in sympathy with foreign nee,ds. "The American farm equipment industry and the farmer, white recognizing the need of aiding Europe," Gillette said, "want scarce agricultural machinery shipped only to those places abroad where it e*n |et the desired results." But the lormer director o! the farm machinery division of the < War Production Board said that to meet the Marshall plan goal, one- I third of all American farm machinery production would have to | be serit abroad for the next three | ' or four years, whereas normal exports have run only about nine to JJ per cent, "The American farmer wouldn't like that kind of a deal." Gillette added. "Let's hope none of the machinery will be left to rust on the beachu in unopened crates, but instead help produce food In Europe 10 we won't have to send so much food over there." Gillette made his statement* before the opening session of the annual MidSouth rarm Equipment AMoeiatibn convention. Another speaker, Earl G. Becker c{ St. Louis, representative of the National Retail Farm Equipment Asaoolitlon. said, that "we don't •want tractors and other machinery- sent over and then not used be- eause of a lack of fuel,'' Becker pointed out that a shortage of fuel might leave tractors and other power equipment idle in European fields, where horse-drawn equipment could be used to better advantage without upsetting the American economy. Gillette agreed with that view, but added: ' "I understand that in many places they would be unable to use thli horsedrawn equipment ^because thev have eaten the horses."
