(U.)'.)—Senate Republican revisionists" neared agreement today mi an attempt to cut about §1.300,000,000 from the $5,300,000,000 proposed for the European recovery program. Tlie $5,300,000,000 figure, which carries the administration blessing was contained in the pending ERP bill approved uiiammpiisly by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee H would cover the first year of ERP operations The Senate resumed debate on*— U___^ the bill with sen. George w. Mulone, R., Nev., ready to continue the attack which he begun yesterday. He called ERP a "fantastic scheme" and proposed thai, the United States extend the Mi" 'octrine to all areas of the ». -^uied vital to national secui.ly. This country should be prepared to fight, he said, to protect those areas. Malone said he wanted to show that the United States without ERP could "iced hungry people, stop Communism and make (reconstruction) loans on a business basis." . The GOP revisionist, bloc was said to /eel thai any move to cut the total below $4.000.000.000 would race certain defeat. However, they were not optimistic about their chances of cutting the amount even to thai figure. They were even more pessimistic about the outlook for their other restrictive amendments. Senate President Arthur H. Van- dcnbei-g, R., Mich., who has been goading the Senate to step up de- bato on the ERP bill, hoped for action today on some of the pending jMpicndments. He wants to bring the f^ill to a final vote late next week. While the Senate debated ERP, the State Department handed Congress a supplementary report 10 justify its request for an additional $275,000,000 in military aid for Greece and Turkey. The report said that improvements in the Greek military establishment, should be shown in more .successful operations against guerrilla forces during the Spring and Summer.

The President arrived from Florida snd is due lo begin getting the bad ne.ws when he meets with his cabinet later today. Palestine is high on the Irouble list. New York Democratic leaders have bolted Mr. Truman's Palestine policy. They have put on tlie pressure for change to appease angry voters. Stale Chairman Paul Pitzpatrick announced this week that Mr. Truman had approved In principle a New York State Democratic Committee pledge that our arms embargo against Palestine would be lifted.
