MONDAY, JANUARY 26, 1947 BLYTHEVILLR (ARK.) COURIER NEWS ERP Spending Policy Outlined U.S. Would Require Matching of Funds By the Beneficiaries WASHINGTON. JRII. 26 (UP) — Mar.shall planners said today that only in rare instances would European governments or firms directly receive American doNars under the presently-proposed financial framework of the European recovery pro- Bram. As now planned, nearly aU buy- ln(! under the multi-billion dollar project would be handled by the! recovery administrator (a U. S. official), American governmental nEcn- cies or private U. S. firms. Hence most financial transactions on both. loans and grants would be conducted Indirectly unless Congress rules otherwise. Consideration for direct payment for commodities or services would be given only when Western European countries or firms made purchases in the United States and other countries without receiving prior approval. Then the Europeans could ask for repayment from Marshall plan funds. But reimbursement would be made by this government only after the purchases had been throughly examined. Matching of Kmnls Proposed Financial experts staled that Iran sactions handled in that manner ordinarily would involve no commitment on the part of the United States to pay. They added, however, that such a device might be used on a temporary basis to get the program rolling in its early stages. Tile 16 Western European governments will be required to match American dollars with an eqnnl ,_^ amount of their own currencies . whenever outright grants are made ^ for food, fuel, fertilizer, and raw materials not intended for capital development. Fund matching would be required regardless of whether the commodities were given away or sold by receiving countries. Aim in Stabilization Funds so established in local European currencies woulcl be used to 1. Retire national debts or to bring about financial reforms and other currency stabilization measures. 2. Explore and develop new sources of raw materials needed by the United States. These include tin. antimony. diamonds, natural rubber. quinine, maganese, chromium, copper, lead and zinc. 3. Defray costs of some reconstruction projects contributing to European economic recovery. 4. Defray local administrative costs incident to carrying out the aid program. 5.

Smith Pontiac Co. 126 South Lilly St. Phon* 4371 What are you doing to get me a telephone? Here's the answer for Blytheville... We connected more than 750 new telephones in Ihe past year — that's J r»le of over 60 a month. We're adding new equipment to (he telephone system in record volumes and we are planning an addition to the telephone building to make more room for still more equipment. We're spending a lot of money — more than $225,000 gross for telephone expansion here in Biytheville. More Equipment We used up the last inch of space in the telephone building last fall with the installation of dia! equipment providing switching facilities for 200 new telephones. We're Building Before the dial equipment additions planned for later in 1948 can be made, the telephone building must be made larger. We expect to «tart work on a two-story addition early this spring. When construction is complete, dial equipment for almost 500 new telephones will be installed. More Coble Needed Bui telephones and switchboards aren't any ust unless they are "tied together," and in many parts of town there isn't enough cable and wire leading into the central office. There Is still an acute shortage of lead- covered cable, and although millions of conductor feel of cable are on order for this year, there won't be enough to provide telephones for all those waiting. However, you can be sure the cable we get will he pul into service as quickly as possible • fter it is delivered. Party Lines Help The hundreds of people who have telephones now—and will get them this year—would have had to wait longer if we had not been able to make wide use of parly lines. Party lines make it possible for us to serve temporarily the greatest number of people wilh our present equipment. Naturally, we're aiming for the day when we can furnish straight-line service to everyone who wants it. But we will need still greater quantities of switching equipment, cable and wire. That's what it takes. It isn't * »imple job, you see. It can't be done In haste, but it's being done as swiftly »8 complexity allows. Telephone people are hard at work supplying service and extending it. They appreciate your patience and understanding. P. J. POE, Hanagtt SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY
