•roui Foreign Aid Hay Require Grants $2 Billion Outright Gift to Europe Looms; Rtit to Be in Loom BY-*.'H. SHACKFORI) (Ifnilrd Press staff Correspondent) "WASHINGTON, Oct. ». tup)— The administration believes tint more than one-third of the estimated »6.000,000,000 needed for the first year of the Marshall Plan will h»ve to be in outright grants rather than loans, It was learned yesterday. It Is working on a plan whereby It hones there would be some indirect benefit to this country from those granUs. It would not be a return to the United States in money, but rather the funnelling of foreign money into constructive foreign rei covery projects whlrh iri the end should cut down demands on the United States. Under such a plan, the countries which Rt-t relief supplies provided by American funds could sell them to their own people. But they would be required to place the proceeds— the francs, lira, pounds, marks, etc.. —into special funds. Such funds then would be used, with U. S. approval, for economic reconstruction projects In the country Involved. A similar plan is now in effect in the countries receiving fund.'; under the U. S. foreign relief program and in Greece and Turkey. Those pro- srair.s provide than' when Aifie'rl-. can relief suppllea sre aold in the recipient country, the'local currency received U earmarked for additional relief and relief work within the country. The 16 Kuropean nations which participated in the Paris Economic Conference estimated they would need $20.400.000,000 from the United States during the next four years. But officials are primarily concerned now with studies of the $ needed for 1848—admittedly the only estimate that can even be close to realistic. This is apart from (he »1,100.000.000 in stop-gap aid to Europe which the administration is expected 'to request from the special sej- sion of CongreJis convening No;'. 17. May Attempt Reductions Senate Democrats hoped to get action on stop-gap aid before Christmas. But Sen. Tom Connally, D.. Tex., conceded that some Republicans and Democrats' might b*r expected to attempt whittling down the figure if it approaches the anticipated billion-dollar mark. In Boston, 'Chairman Robert A. Taft, ft. O., of the GOP Senate Policy Committee predicted that Congress would complete work on stopgap aid for Europe—and possibly on some Marshall Plan funds—before adjourning for Christmas. An administration source, meanwhile, revealed that some Republicans already have urged the S!acc Peparlnjent to wrap up the stopgap aid program with the Marshall Plan. This vould mean that the emergency bill would-be deducted from the Marshall Plan total. 1 As of now. no final decisions on how any of the Marshall Plan money Straus Memorial to Be Dedicated re- or President Truman will receive th« Oscar S.

The administration hasn't even decided that total it will recommend to Congress. But there Is powerful support inside the administration and in Congress—especially among Congressmen who went to Europe this Summer—to provide the aid in three broad categories: 1. !"or capital goods (transportation and Industrial equipment) — these needs'should be financed by loans, either government, private or International bank loans. The United States provides mast of the. funds for the World Bank. Privale. 1 investors could not be expected to participate vmtll the Initial states of recovery are over. 2. Raw materials and some machinery such as farm machinery— again most of these can be financed by loans. The Exporl-ltnport Bank is authorized to make such loans for industry. 3. Food and fuel—this Is llw toughest item. None of the existing governmental or Inter-eovernmcn- ta] lending organizAtions can finance these and, since they are basic to recovery, no one yet has found a way to pay [or them except by grants by the U. S. Congress. Elderly Arsonist Gets Sentence Commuted NEW ORLEANS. Oct. 29. (UP) — John G. Hendrick. a 70-year-old husband, got a break today on his two- year arson sentence.
