PACK TWO Foreign Aid Plan li Sharif* Up As a 'Gifaittk Hank Chock' WABBH*OTOtt, Mov: M (UP)MB. Joseph B. Ban, R, Minn, charted yesterday that the administration* lentsn aid program, waa thaptoc up a« a "gfcanUc blank cheek." . • Bell* a»ae* was Bade as admlnU- tretion leaden predicted quick senate peaeage «f the JeT7.SOO.OOc em- eneoey relief bill for France, Italy and Austria. He said ate charge ap- pUed to both the trl-country stopgap aid and the kon(-range Marshall Plan estimated to coat up to »*>, 000,000400. . Bait said to a letter to his constituents that despite warnings from ChalTBian Arthur Vendenberf, R., Mich,, ot the Senate Foreign Relations committee and other Republican and Democratic leaden In Congress that no -blank checks" would be written, the administration was askloc Congress to do just that Trie administration, he said was merely camouflaging Its request with a little "window dressing," "The new catchword being used to put over .the blank check Idea is •flexibility,'" he aald. "Both Secretary (of State George C.) Marshall and the Harrlman report.... Insist that the program must be flexible to meet changing needs and that therefore wide discretion must oe granted to whatever agency la created to run the program." Agree en Aid Need Ball said there was general agreement oo the need for Immediate aid, -but there will be a controversy over, the amount the United State* can furnish without seriously hurt- Ing our own' economy, and also over the latitude of discretion to be granted— In spending the funds appropriated." Re said the reason Congress was against • such, type "blank check' legislation for European aid Is because more than tlO.000,000,000 already has been epproprtated for such aid In the past two yean. "The administration has had almost unlimited discretion In spending these funds to promoted European .economic recovery," he said. "The result* are disappointing, in put It mildly: deepening crisis in Europe and terrific upward pressure •a prices of scare* commodities'were at home. Th* Wank check formula ha* not worked.".
