AllKANSAS, T1IUUSDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1947 EmergencyRelief Advocated for France and Italy r Congressmen Urged To Act by Head of House Committee By SANDOR S. KLEIN (United preu Staff CorrHporident) WASHINGTON, Oct. ». (UP) — Chairman Chnrlei A. Eaton of the House Foreign Affairs Committee came out rlatly today for "some kind of emergency relief" for Prance and Italy. He expressed hope [or action by a special session of *ongTess "by December." 'Time Is of the essence." the j New Jersey Republican said. "There Mn be no dawdling over this t't'ng. If It Is true that an Dec. 1 Fn: ,ve »nd Italy won't be able to buy fuel to keep from freezing this Winter, we're going to have to do •omething by December." Eaton said he had received Information which convinced him thai, the situation in Western Europe Is so serious that the United Stales cannot escape providing aid' "as speedily as possible." H e made It clear that he Intended to speed his committee's considera- tlon or President Truman's 1580,- jfOO.000 stop-sap relief program — »a program to help Western Europe pending congressional action on the long-range Marshall plan. Meanwhile, (he UnJteii Stalls • •erved notice on Russia, her six satellites and the Communist parties in Italy and France that thii government will not allow "malicious and unscrupulous" maneuvers to wreck the Marshall plan. This government's position was outlined by acting Secretary of State Robert A. Ijovett in an important statement on the new Communist ngency set up by party leaders from Russia, Yugoslavia. Bulgaria. Romania. Hungary. Poland, Czechoslovakia, France. and Italy. "Tlie parties and governments associated with this (Communist) program have made clear their intention to prevent, if they can, the economic recovery or Europe," he said. "We must not allow ourselves; to be deflected from the course we have chosen; and we must continue to study with sympathy but with calm realism that problem of how Europe can be assisted to regain its proper place in a stable and peaceful world." Meanwhile, Rep. Eugene Cox. D.. Ga,. one of the first members of the Special House Foreign .Aid Advisory Committee to return from EurcpE.'.MV&Ardo^ii -the •Kncrfior the Marshall plan to aid European^'recovery. "The Marshall Plan is this country's only hope," he lold newsmen, "because Russia js do, inj everything except conducting || i • hooting war against us. We've 1 no choice. Either we gamble on saving Europe or we let Russia tukc it all by default." Cox, who In the past had never been enthusiastic about foreign aid programs, said he was appalled by the "hunger, the want, the distress. the human wreckage everywhere in Europe." ^ "We simply cannot conceal the gravity of the situation as It affects us," he added. "To foster complacency would do us great injury. it. might well be res'Vtsi- blc for our complete undoing. The Truman doctrine and the Marshall plan must be made to work." Eaton's committee will meet jointly with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Nov. 10 to hear Secretary of State George C. Marshall outline the President's emergency program, Four Indicted WAA Deals In Kentucky LOUISVILLE. Ky., Oct. 6.

Eggs and Poultry Ban is Observed Most Housewives Co-operating With Conservation P!un (By United I'ress) Housewives, charged by President Truman with a major share of responsibility In Ihe drive to save food, eliminaled cess today from the tradilional American breakfast. They were guided only by their consciences in the voluntary campaign to help feed Europe. But. random questioning of housewives In 18 scattered cities indicalcd that most of them were dispensing with eggs and poultry today in accordance with the President's request Many o fthe housewives inter- I viewed said "eogTcss, poullryless 1 Thursday" would help llicir budgets. Some said they already had cut down on eSgs because of the price. The survey indicated, however, that there still were many persons who opposed the irrogram. Their opposition was summed up in the words of one housewife who said "we've already done enough for Europe." The Uniled Tress questioned 90 housewives in 18 cities. Seventy- seven promised to cooperate with the food-saving program, seventy out of 85 resturant propietors said Ihey would comply. Most Housewives Co-operate At Omaha, Neb., four out of five housewives said they were going along with the program. The fifth said "we did plenty during the war and I feel that other countries haven't done all they could." Two resturants at Omaha refused to strike eggs from their menus They said eggs were, their biggest breakfast item. A resturant at Salt Lake city said much the same thing. "If we didn't we might just as well close the doors.' He suid. Another Salt Lake City restu- rant operator, however, sairi "We won't serve poultry or eggs unless w : e have competition." What effect the "cggless Thursdays" would have on the price of eggs remained to be seen. Yesterday,- one the eve of the first such Thursday, eg];s on the Chicago mercantile exchange rose the full limit for n single day's trading—two cents per dozen. Charles s. Borclen. president of the Exchange, said the sharp increase was caused by the government's huge price support purchases last Spring were a major factor in the high prices of eggs today.
