It ' raid they drove up in n truck, and apparently were wearing military uniforms. Sir Alan Cunningham, British P, hig n commissioner, was expected to ' make a major statement of policy within the next 24 hours. Officials speculated on the possibility of imposition of statutory martial law. Cunningham summoned his executive council and high military authorities for urgent consultations.

U. S. Considers Funds for Greeks Failure to Provide , Financial Assistance Could Aid Communists WASHINGTON. March 1. (UP) — Congressional Republicans »mi Democrats alike started a move today to provide financial help needed to save Greece from an upheaval that might have dire repercussions for the Western democracies. Administration leaders estimated it would cost at least $250.000,000 this year to give Greece the urgently needed financial help which Britain, plagued by economic troubles of her own, can no longer afford. Mindful of warnings that an upheaval in Greece might loose a Communist sweep through .the Middle East, many 'congressmen said it was urgent that the money lie provided quickly so British occupation troops can continue to support the shaky Greek government. Some contended, however, that U. S. -re- .lief .commitments/already, were .too ' till-LTO --<-•'--.'.-. congressional develop- News Service Endangered In New Strike Threat it WASHINGTON, March 1.

BUDGET—Republican plans to cut income taxes by 20 per c-nt were again threatened. Republicans feared it might not be possible to cut President Truman's $37,530,000 000 budget as much as originally hoped because of additional reli-'f money which may be needed in the Greek crisis. PORTAL PAY-Democratic senators predicted that President Truman would veto legislation outlawing portal pay suits if it reaches him in the form passed by the House. The House passed a bill yesterday outlawing almost $6.000 000 000 in the portal pay suits. Trie House version also would strike out many safeguards in the wage-hour law.
