"I said as clearly as I possibly can thai a program for Western Kurope thai docs not Include the productive facilities o! all rountrl^ of Western Europe—which Includes Western Germany as well as France —and does not Include the military manpower of all Western Europe xxx will not be effective in the long range political sense."

Single Foreign Aid Agency Plan Being Drawn Up Economic, Military Assistance Likely To Be Consolidated WASHINGTON, Sept. 13. M>,_A Pltm to channel all foreign O ld- olh mllUnry nnd economic _ iiraiigh a single government a- Bcncy rcporlcclly Is being drawn 'P for ' President Truman's co.i- iideratlon. Kifonncd officials said today the >lan Is part of a report now being prepared by Gordon Gray, former Army secretary and new president at the University of North Carolina. • Gray and a staff of .government mid private financial experU hav« teen studying m itil economic con- miions for ihe past six months at ine request, of President Truman. tentative conclusions being put into final form, officials said, call for unified administration of ail foreign - aid programs which In-1 volve grants by the American government. These grants total billlonS of dollars annually. ' ,'•'._>'•••• First" step Iri'Vie unlficat&n'.pro- posal, It Is reported, would be the merger ol the Economic Coonera- llon Administration (KCA), whfch Is directing economic aid lo 18 Weslern European countries plus Korea and china, with the military assistance program now funnellng American billions to nearly a score of nations. These ' two principal programs presumably would be joined to the "noint four" program to encourage underdeveloped areas, and the Latin American health and sanitation programs. Part of the reasoning behind Gray's current thinking, officials say, Is thai , lighter check Is needed on the money the United Slatej Is now distributing lo overseas al- lles. Other powers suggested for thi propsed new agency, it was learned, is that it have a major voice In determining ihe policies of the Export-Import Bank, and direct the activities of the • American representative of the multi-billion dollar World Bank. The Export-Import Bank Is this government's principal agency for making foreign loans. Now, however, the Communist Invasion of Korea and the stepped- up rearmament programs of the U. S. and its allies have caused administration officials to give military rearmament first priority. In view of this, some top government officials believe that ECA dollars could be used to greater advantage lo make the produclion Of guns, lanks and other milllary supplies possible. Under the Marshall plan, this money is used only to stimulate civilian-type commerce and induslry. Wire-Topping Probe Shelved WASHINGTON. Sept. 13.
