R Nelson al Dr. Pepper Bottling He announced his Intention at a foreign affniig committee hearing on the recovery program. His proposal would follow the out lines of the suggestions set forth by Gov, Thomas E- Dewey of New York in his recent Boston speech. Previously, Rep. Hale Boggs. D, La., urged thnt the committee write into the preamble of the ERP bill a provision that Congress fuvors the creation of a federation of European states. He was promised that the Idea would get "sympathetic consideration." There were other foreign aid developments: 1. Secretary of State George C. Marshall will be tlie administration's lead-off witness before the House Foreign Affairs Committee tomorrow on President Truman's So"iO,000 T 000 China aid program. 2. Wayne C. Taylor, spokesman fo, the Committee for Economic De- i velcpment and former undersecre- i tary of commerce?, proposed to the committee that President Truman be given direct authority and power to administer the European recovery program. 3. Senate Republicans criticized Mr. Truman for not including anti-Communist military assistance In his China aid program. There were Indications that Republicans might Ivy to write in a military aid clause when the program comes up for congressional approval. The president yesterday recommended 5510,000,000 to enable China to finance essential imports, and an additional 560,000,000 for selected reconstruction projects. Chairman Styles Bridges, >„„ N. 'H., of tlie Senate Appropriations Committee said economic aid alone would not be sufficient to combat the Communist threat in the Far East. This country, he s».id. should •flV.rt military supplies flowing immediately to the Chinese Nationalist, government of Chiang Kai- Shek. "The European recovery program makers little sense," said I Bridges, 'if China is permitted to j go to the Communists by default." He sugcgsted that the United States assign a "strong and forthright" representative to the Chinese government. Tears Futile Cits lure ] SUH. Owen Bit-w.stcr.

There were murmurs of discontent from Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee over Mr. Truman's recommendation that aid to China be lumped with the European Recovery F'roRram u |.1er a .single administrating agency, one Democrat said this might prove "embarrassing" to Committee Chairman Arthur H.
