Details of the financial program will be disclosed today, when Director- General Herbert H. Lehman presents his report. The prospect was grimly put Tuesday by Britain's new foreign secretary, Ernest Bevin, when he warned the 4-1-nation parlej' that liberated Europe must be aided in the next 12 months or be plagued with "misery, disease, anarchy and blood-i shed." Many Supplies Needed He declared that more money and supplies must be thrown into the relief pool, and quickly, "now that UNRRA is going, through its| great test," and suggested that an' increased share come from the smaller states. "UNRRA cannot continue without the continued support of all the United Nations," Bevin said bluntly. "It Is essential that every member make their contributions --not only the great powers. Some great powers already have been impoverished by the war and demands of the war." Declaring filial increased food supplies were an imperative immediate need, he said pointedly that "some member nations less touched by the war are in position to make much greater contributions than they have In the past." Speaking for Britain. Bevin pledged that the new Labor government "will stand behind the UNRRA and do everything in their power to make it a success." 15,000 Inmates Oi Nazi Prisons Given Releases Frankfurt, Germany--ff--American military authorities said Tuesday they have freed more than 15,000 inmates of German prisons after a review of their cases disclosed they were unjustly sentenced.

A military review board at Munich examined 7.549 cases and released all but 1,084. 'Of 6,000 inmates still In prison In the American zone about 1,000 were convicted by Nazi courts, but the sentences were deemed just.
