Steele (CaM*4 Tnm Surf WASHINGTON, Jan. 10 (UP)— Million! of tons of vital minarals— but no uranium tor atomic energy —wer» listed by th» State Department today M possible gains for tJ. 8. strategic stockpiles' under the Marshall Plan. The special report wa» submitted to the Senate foreign Relations Committee In response to questions of what this country con expect In raw materials for the aid sent Eu rop« under the proposed recovery program. Listed were many minerals whlcn •re scarce in this country but 'which could be stored up against the poS' slbillty ol a future U. S. rearnm ment program. They would be drawn mainly from the colonial possessions of the 16 Western European nations scheduled to receive Marshall Flan aid. Notably absent from the list was the key atomic energy source material -of uranium. It was explained that the State Department has no Jurisdiction over acquisition of uranium, that matter being handled directly by the federal Atomic energy Commission. Vanrlenberjr Satisfied This explanation apparently satisfied Committee chairman Arthur H. Vandenbere. R., Mich., who recently asked the department to explore the possibility of obtaining uranium from the Belgian Congo- one of the handful of known sources. The State Department listed an- Hclpated stockpile acquisitions of cadmium, cobalt, copper, industrial diamonds and zinc from the Belgian Congo, thus opening the possibility that the Atomic Commission may obtain uranium from the same region. The list was submitted after re• peated promptings from Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., Mass., for an all-out effort to obtain scarce materials In return for the projected 16,800,000,000 down-payment on the foreign aid program. i Highlights of yesterday's hearing on the European recovery program included: 1. Sen. Walter P. George, D., Ga., charged that Secretary of State George C. Marshall resorted to "the technique of propaganda" In challenging Congress to provide adequate funds for the Bid program or "don't undertake it at nil." 2. Vandenberg warned that the Marshall Plan will b« "sunk" unless the American people ar« assured that it will be run "In ft business way."

"We arc going to drop way behind in this field unless tlie government steps into the picture." Priest said. "We have always depended on Europe nnd on private institutions for basic research. Now this is nn longer possible." Priest ha.s been fighting for thi legislation for 2 1-2 years. It was passed by Congress last year but Mr. Truman vetoed it because he did not approve of certain administrative details. These have now been cleared up. Priest said. Specifically, the bill set.s up a "National Science Foundation" uf 24 members. One of Us duties would j be to provide boys and girls to un- i usual ability with a scientific education at some university of their choice. A budget of something more than J33.000.000 for tlie first year has )een suggested for the foundation mi no figure is included in the bill, which is now before the House nterstate Commerce Committee.
