?AGE TWELVE BLYTHKVJU-B (AKK.) COUK1EH NEWS FK1UAY, JANUARY 20, 1950 Endof'Blockade' Of Spain Sought Military Strategy Seen Behind Move To Recognize Franco WASHINGTON, Jan. 20. The new American decision to help scrap the diplomatic boycott of Franco' Spain apparently had military strategy as a major reason Diplomatic officials reported today that western military leaders ]ong have favored this as n move toward bringing Spain into the Western defense syetem. Tiieir argument was thai 1 . Spain's strategic position made it vital lo any effective Western plan fci stopping any possible Russian attack on Western Europe. Secretary of Slate Aciieson disclosed yesterday that the Hinted States now favors sending an ambassador back to Madrid. The Senate, which lias much to do with foreign policy, showed general approval. Both economic and religious pressures have been apparent. Trade Ansles Cifnl Senator Bastland (D-Mlss) and oilier cotlon state Senators have asked recognition, In part because of trade angles.

Therefore, he said, the United . States would support a move in ihc United Nations Assembly which would leave member governments free to send ambassadors or ministers to Madrid if Ihcy so desire.
