PAGE a-NAUGATPCK NEWS (CONN.), WEDNESDAY, APR. 25, 1951 WASHINGTON COLUMN By PETER EPSON NBA Staff Correspondent India May X^o Down Red Drain II Play Politics With Misery - Washington—(NEA)—The posi- • tion- of India today is sometimes likened to that or- China in 1945. It,can be saved .from communism . If the right: things , are done. .It •. can be lost to communism if the . wrong, things are-done. ; It is in this latter, category that the United-States now has a chance e to commit a major blunder in its ' handling of famine-'relief. What . started out to be a simple act of charity has.'now:, become involved in the larger debate on the whole question : of -Truman administration policy towards, communism. . Though , Gen. Douglas MacAr- ' thur's firing as U. S. 'commander in the Far East has nothing directly to do with India, the famine ' relief., problem has become a part of the debate which the MacArthur firing started. .. TJ. S. politics therefore has a hand in : it from here ' on. The common belief is that the India famine, relief bill, introduced by Rep. Thomas Morgan of Penn- "sylvania, has been blocked by the House Rules Committee. Actually, at this writing, the Bouse Rules Committee has never had a meeting on the bill. The story behind that is that after the House Foreifen Affairs Committee had approved the bill, the Democrats on the Rules Committee conducted an informal poll of their members. It was found that not enough Democratic votes could be mustered to celar the bill for House action. So Chairman Adolph Sabath simply refrained from calling a Rules Committee meeting to discuss' the mpaanco WHY CONGRESSMAN meaSUre ' ATTACK IT Objections which congressmen raise against the Indian famine relief bill are many and varied. Some of the objections have little or - nothing to do with India directly It is the entire Truman foreign policy that Republicans and some Democrats are attacking. One argument against Indian famine relief which has not ocme put tin the open, but which congressmen talk, about privately, is 'that this is only, a starter lor a much larger global relief program. It the Indian relief bill is approved; it is feared that another big relief bill for Arab .refugees in Palestine will be presented. Congressmen ask: "Where is this going to stop?" The Marshall Plan and military, assistance ,requests for next year have not yet been sent to Congress. If these separate- country relief measures are piled .on them, the total will be, huge : and the chance for economizing small. . ..'..'.In which, many congressmen are balking at the- terms of the Truman administration's Indian relief bill. What India asked for last December, was two million tons of grain "on special and easy terms." If the deal had beep arranged on that basis, it wouldn't have to go through Congress and might all be settled now. Instead of that, the .administration sent up a bill asking, for $140 million as a grant. This, would give India 750 million bushels of grain over the next two years for free. To make this palatable to Congress, the old Marshall Plan restrictions were tacked on. These would provide that the grain be sold by the Indian government in its normal trade channels The rupees received from this sale would-be put in a counterpart fund.

And this would- be used to build irrigation projects, or other developments to increase Indian food production. This, is said to be haggling over distress—imposing conditions which would make the dians resent the aid given. In- - **.*• fc j v^ii. Aside from these points, political opposition to the Indian famine relief, bill seems to have no compunctions about hard bargaining over misery. Individual congressmen think the aid should' be furnished only on a barter deal. This would involve trading food grains for burlap, manganese, or what have they This in spite of the fact that India last year sent nearly three-fourths Report Maryknoll Mission Priest Held In Red China Ossining, N. Y., April 25—(UP) —The Maryknoll Mission has received word of the arrest of the Rev. Joseph Regan of Fairhaven, Mass., in Red China. .. Father Regan, 46 years old, had headed a Maryknoll Mission in Kweilin, South China, since 1929 According to Father Albert Ne'y- ins, information of the arrest was received through private channels. No official confirmation has been given by the Chinese Communist government. The arrest was said to have taken place in Leipo, near Kwelin, and no reason was given Father Nevins says that, the Rev.

The charge that India's government hasn't cooperated with the United States in the United Nations and in Korea is not considered a major objection to the relief bill But all these fine points are lost : on the. Indians. All they know is that they're.not getting the grain .and that this country has surpluses .in storage. >... . Political debate and delay under ^these circumstances certainly can do the cause,,of the western world no good in Asia. Fairhaven.
