SDL THE DAILY REGISTER, HARRISBURG, ILL, THURSDAY, J A N U A R Y 15. 1948 Revolutions I Aid, State Dep'i Warns -Gives Congress ''Political Appraisal --Of European Nations /oJ By R. II. SIIACKFORD United Press Staff Correspondent ·^WASHINGTON, Jan. 15-- U.K-- 1 he 'State Department laid before congress and the world today an iraprccendented appraisal of the internal political situation of 17 western European countries and warned that some key countries face revolutions unless they get substantial U. S. economic aid. ?*The political analysis in effect predicted a rash of little and big-,. "Greeces" all over Europe if- the Marshall plan is not approved. . .'-/This was contained in 17 volumes of background material on each of the 16 western European countries involved in the Marshall plan and western Germany. Each volume contained a section on Apolitical aspects." '"Never before has the State Department made public so candid ^analysis of the internal political^'situation in other countries. It. usually has refrained from ever the-- most guarded comments on such issues. Statement on France i.'The political comments on some countries are' routine, general statements. On Portugal, for example. the report doe's not mention that the present regime is generally recognized as a dictatorship which hfls- maintained itseli in powe: since 1926. -But the analysis on France wab irttfst comprehensive and even in eluded statements of what "many frenchmen" or "most Frenchmen" believe. . _,It offered the suggestion that Gen. Charles De Gaulle could take over the French government any tinie he wishes and already holds '^something of a veto" over composition ot the present French government and its policies. ;,J)e Gaulle was the man the State Department said less thar. six months ago didn't have a chance offTreturning to power. That evai- ustion Was made in a similar summary perpared for congressmen who., were going abroad last summer? Predict Dire Results ' The State Department's report? predicted dire reeult* if the Marshall plan failed. ./Jn France-- failure to attain eco comic stability probably would lead, to communist revolution ana imposition of 'a- communist dictatorship, but probably only after "a civil war between right and left. t In Italy -- the continued existence of the present anti-corr.munist center government depends upon suc- os'Ss in arresting inflation and in maintaining production that pro mfses better living conditions -·In western Germany-- "unless tfus crowded and industrially rich feri'd is enabled to recover some 6f5 its former economic vitality, moderate and democratic forces ^ftxious to cooperate with the res«. 6i ^Europe cannot hope to consolidate their position . . . The trade unions are the only internal protection against efforts of tota!i- terian forces of the right or left to ' exploit the economic distress as a means of gaining political power." " further Assistance Needed 7"Jn Greece-- attempts to end the c'ommunist guerrilla menace have · Been unsuccessful. If the menace reduced and order estab lished only the basis for "minimum reconslruction" will be provided. In any event further foreign assistance is needed. ''.'.'France is the key to democracy in western Germany.' the documents said. "It is today one ol-the principal battlefields in the international communist campaign to prevent European economic recovery. The communists aie clearly acting in the belie! that France further weakened ec onomically will fall prey first to social disorder and chaos, ann then to -revolution. A communist controlled France would make tne maintenance of democracy eise- where in western Europe almost insuperably difficult."'
