COUK1KU NEWS PAGE wnne War Plant Deals Termed 'Stupid' Senator Soys Policy Of Administration Aided the Russians BY JOHN 1* STfctl.K (United I'rus SUff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Nov. 20. <UP> — A Senate Investigation into th: transfer of German war plants to Russia was promised today In connection with congressional action on the administration's foreign aid Chairman btyies linages. R., N. H.. of tlie Senate Appropriations Committee accused the administration of "asinine stupidity" in agreeing to the transfers ami then asking Congress for new funds to help rebuild Western Europe. Bridges said his committee would investigate fin agreement last month for tlie dismantling of an additional 682 German plants in the British-American zone. Many of Ihe industrial facilities, lie said, would go to Russia and her satellites. Meanwhile, Chairman Arthur VandenbiTj;, R., Mich., of the pen- ate Foreign Re.alioti.s Commute? rushed action on tlie administration's $597,000,000 emergency relief bill for Prance, Italy and Austria The committee had these two major amcndmenti to consider first: A proposal to permit up to SH9.- 250,000 of the fuel and famine supplies provided by tlie measure to be purchased in foreign markets. 2.

The foreign purchasing amendment represented an effort to reduce the impact of relief purchases on the U. S. market. It rellecled ,a reversal of earlier congressional thinking. Many members had previously favored permitting the use of only about six per cent ol appropriated funds for purchase outside the U. S. The proposed preamble stemmed directly' from suggestions by John Faster Dulles, a Republican foreign policy spokesman and U. S. delegate to the United Nations. Dulles recommended that Congress and the administration s'eek agreement on specific steps Europe must take to receive American aitl. Bridges' move to investigate American reparations policy in Germany would be made in connection with a forthcoming Army request for an ! additional SSOS.OCO.OOO lo be spent In Western Germany. Any extended inquiry, however, might delay funds for the entire emergency aid program. j iS'^ Henry Wallace Defendants Enter n economics .,..„' . . kl~i. /^- 'la...
