It was desired to keep initial discussion on general objectives--not details. When the details do come out, appropriations committees in Congress will probably try. to trim ev- erv figure. And special interests will try to make substitutions. This was done when the stop-gap aid program was before the special session of Congress lastnKKrtn. Senator Allen J. Ellender of Louisiana scanned the list of supplies and noted no canned sweet potatoes were included. The reason was-that 1,000 calories in canned sweet potatoes costs 14 cents delivered in France, while 1,000 calories of wheat costs 4 cents. It !is obviously more to the taxpayers' interest to send wheat, cut I Louisiana grows lots of sweet poia- 'toes and little wheat, i It will be easy to sabotage the | Marshall Plan by this kind of mon- ;key business. Without going into all this detail on every item, it « possible jto understand how the Marshall plan would work.

S. govern-; ment aid would vary from $15.1 billion to S17.8 billion, depending on low or high prices. By law. the limit would be set at $17 billion from April 1. 1948. to June 30. 1952. The International Bank would be expected to furnish S4 billion more. j 9. Nations receiving l.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.-O'- j ', President Truman has changed his ., mind pretty drastically in the past ( 1 ' 367 days about the need for for-1 cign aid. ., . ,. i On Jan. 10. 1947, he said in his. budget message to Congress: "The period when large-scale ' relief is required for our allies is 1 almost over. It is necessary that vie provide a modest relief pro! gram for a few countries which arc ' 'still in desperate straits." That modest program. Mr. Truman told Congress then, would cost $250.000,000.
