This was disclosed today by a high ranking government official as President Truman told congress he soon would recommend adding $1,250,000,000 to the lending powers of the export-import bank to take care of loans to countries other than Britain. Mr. Truman's message said treasury funds will be loaned only to Britain — providing congress approves a projected 83,750,000,000 credit Oilier borrowers will have to go to the export-import bank. The proposed British credit was described as a 'unique case" which would "not set a precedent" for loans of treasury funds to other gountries. Expansion of the export-import bank's lending authority by $1,250,000,000 would give the government- backed institution a total of $3,250,000,000, to handle applications through June 30, 1948. The declaration of administration policy on foreign lending came on the eve of arrival of representatives from .France — which was voiced a need of $2,500,000,000 — and revelation that Russian had applied for $1,000,000,000. The foreign loan policy was outlined in a letter and a report on international monetary and financial problems which Mr. Truman said bore his "full endorsement." The report was prepared by the national advisory committee, which includes the secretaries, of state, the CONDUCT COURSE CHARTED . 'The.committee's.proposarf6r;more lending capital 'for the export-import bank came oh top of President Truman's budget estimate .that net expenditures for the bank, Britirh credit and the Bretton Woods monetary agreements amount to $5,368,000,000 in the fiscal years of 1946 and 1947.

Soviets Leaving Sections oi Iran LONDON, March 1. — (/P) — The Moscow radio announced today that Red army troops would start withdrawing tomorrow from those sections of Iran "which are undisturbed," but would remain in the northwestern area, which includes the province of Azerbaijan. The Soviet government has informed Irania negotiators that the withdrawal—due tomorrow from all Iran under an allied agreement— will be limited to eastern areas of Soviet occupation in northern Iran "where the situation is relatively calmer," according to the broadcast. An autonomous government was reported a month ago to have been set up in Azerbaijan province after Red army troops blocked off Iranian reinforcements ordered into the province to put down a revolt. Premier Ahmed Qavam Saltaneh announced Feb. 8, before he left for Moscow to negotiate Russian-Iranian differences, that he would not recognize the Azerbaijan relume. If Necessary U S, Will Use Force-Byrnes NEW YORK, March 1 — (AP) — Secretary of State Byrnes, declaring the United States intends to prevent aggression, by force if necessary, charted a course of conduct today for relations among the world's great and small powers. He tempered his remarks with the assertion that he was "convinced that there is no reason for war between any of the great powers," and added that only an "inexcusable tragedy of errors could cause serious conflict between this cburv try and Russia." LIST OF 'MUST XOTS' Calling for a "stop to this man-, euvering for strategic advantages all over thri world and to the. use oS one adjustment as an entering wedge for further and undisclosed penetrations of power," Byrnes in addressing the overseas press club last night, laid down this seven point list of "must nots" for the world's nations: 1. "We will not and we cannot stand nloff if force or the threat .of force is used contrary to the oUr- poses of the (United Nations) char-/ ter. . . . APPROVAL NECESSARY 2. "We have no right to hold our, troops in the territories of other soverign states without their approval and consent freely given. 3.

Kaiser told congress today that removal of price controls would spell ruin for the great mass of mankind which has only limited purchasing power." The West coast' industrialist made the forecast while urging the house banking committee to approve leg-* islation to continue OP<A. Kaiser declared abolition of the agency would result in "inflation of disastrous proportions x x x throughout the whole field of production and distribution- x x x laying its heaviest toll on those who are the least able to bear it." He said he agreed with opponents of price control that the best way to avoid inflation is to insure full production, but' he added: "There is, as yet, no convincing argument that full production must await removal of price controls. "The best way to increase production will be tp stop bickering and go to work, with all sides ready to give and take in the all-important) effort to raise production to thei- level of demand." Kaiser took sharp issue with the 1 National Association of lyfanufac- turers for its full-page newspaper* advertisements urging abandonment of controls. —And We Thought- Rationing Was Hard TOKYO, March i—(/P)—Rationing, quotas in Japan, effective today, ave for each member of a family: Three matches a month, one cake r of soap every three months, and, 34' sheets of toilet tissue monthly.
