JK United Press staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, March 21—(UP! -Congress was urged today to go tm recora as favoring creation ol a "United States or Europe" as the most effective way to enri tho "si'^plB'jjii, .hatred, and confusion" that have'bred tivo world wars. Three Democratic congressmen joined in introducing a resolution which would make a feUerate'l E-irope a cardinal objective of American foreign policy. It wns sponsored in the House by Hep. Hale Boggs, D.. La., and in the Senate by Sens. J. w. Fui- bvight, D.. Ark., and Elbert Thomas, D., Utah. The three sponsors conceded that l!ic idea was not new. But they said it was never more urgent lor Congress to consider it than nov.-. when "we ar c called upon to spend billions of dollars in Germany, in Greece ana to lend billions in other lands." Said Fulbright: "I know that the people of America had enough ol wars | which, for centuries, have been generated by the conflicts that inhere In the fragmented sovereign- lies ol Europe. Something must be done or ihc Western world, including ourselves, will commit suicide or be absorbed by the Easl.'The resolution, he said, docs not mean that the United States would try to "impose" rederation upon Europe. Rather, he said, it would give encouragement to the European forces working for it. Boggs said Europe must be reconstituted if the world is to have p?acc and that thc job could not be done with American dollars and relief. The "negative policy of opposing Russia and International Communism, as vital as lhal is. is nol enough,' 1 he said. nivthevllic Herald Mississippi Vallty Lender Citizens School Committee Plans Broad Program P.T.A.
