SIIA(!KFOIil> (I'uitdi I'rcss Slaff <:i>rrrs)innrirnt} WASHINGTON. Aug. 7.1 UP) — Great Britain Is expected to ask Hie Unlloti si files formally in the nc'ir future to assume more. if not all — of her financial burdens in the Western Occupied Zone of Germany, it was indicated today. American officials, including Secretary of state George C. Marshall, have avoided any direct comment on repeated British demands for reconstruction of tlio agreement to split occupation cosls in the merged /one n\\ ;\ 50-50 basis. _ But the liri'ish are expected to raise that issiw when the Anp:lo- American coul conlerencc starts here next wee!:, and also when I lie "high level" Ani-lo-Amcrican conference convenes soon to consider Britain's request for relaxation of the loan agreement. Officials pointed out here thai elimination of Britain's $200,000.000 deficit in thi- merged German ranes would be the quickest and most direct way to biing relief (o Britain, even thoush in n,c overall financial crisis it. would \, c a minor relief. American officials ailmil privately tlinl "liritain is in a hell of a mess." n u l (hey don't see much prospect of Dulled Slates help until the "Marshall J'laii" Rets soing next y ,. ar However, they arc prepared for almost any kind of proposal from the British. Even Marshall was very cautious at hii press conference yesterday whet' lie announced the forthcoming cabinet-level talks on the loan. "When the B.-llish had (heir last financial crisis early Ihis year, the consequence roi the United States was assumption of British rc.sixmsl- hillties in Greece and Turkey and the. S400.00ll.oan Greek-Turkish aid bill," a reporter reminded Marshall "Do you anticipate that the present crisis will create similar consequences for Hie u. S.?" Marshall deftly avoided any commitment on that. He dodged the issue by saying hn liad no comment, at this time Tlie British for months have been trying to get. the" United States 10 •sit down and talk with them aiioul taking over more of the occupation costs of Germany. Marshall has refused, arguing tint the first jol> in the Western part of Germany u>- day is to get more coal product'.o.'. which is now only 50 per cent of the prewar outy.u:. Once the oft-posiponed coal conference opens next week the v,'.iy will be clc.-ir r or n\any kinds u: compromises. I: the British loosen up and allow the United States to take over administration or the Ruhr coat mirier along American lines. Marshall probably will be far more amenalili. to start talking .1- bout assuming, a larger share of the financial h\:rsS"nf in Germany. But the "quid pro quo" is bound to be more Amerkr.r. authority. t>-.-- cause lhn Unileri States feels that poor, inadequate and Inefficient British management is paitly rc- sponsible lor lh e difficulties in Germany.
