What I am getting at is—the city editor ordered me to attend g the opening Glee club concert of " the season and write the review I knowing nothing about the technical aspects of sharps and flats, hung around some of the professors most of the evening—and in the course of events I borrowed a phrase for tomorrow's review I wrote that the glee club's program was "rather ambitious."

The group recommends "a systematic review of world resources." It suggests -as an example, a deal in which the British government might give the United States access xo Labrador iron ore and British oil in Venzueia, and the French government might do the same with chrome and nickel deposits in New Caledonia. Such an arrangement, of course, would not even approximate a full payment for American help No one can expect payment of that sort any more oan in the case of Lcnd-Lease—ana the ERP is essentially peacetime'Lehd-Lease. A£ » the same time, as the House Com- mittce points out, "we are pouring out our own resources to aid these countries repayment through stockpiling or participation is only a fair return." Obviously it would be shortsighted foolishness to ask that the countries receiving aid dip into mineral and other physical resources already meager in order to repay us. Yet there may be new, abundant or incompletely developed resources in colonial or British Com, monwealth territories which might be turned over to the American government without increasing the hardships of the countries seeking There is scant hope of any dollar repayment under the Marshall i Jan. aut the American people can replace dollars, though the task will not be easy. They cannot replace natural resources that are given as part of the European aid Any suggestion that this country , be compensated for the loss of natural resources will probably raise a cry of "Uncle Shylock" in some quarters. But it is safe to assume ttiat the criticism won't come •f om r ? s P°nsible quarters. At least it shouldn't. For just as it is freely admitted that the American people are going to help Europe because of enlightened self-interest, as well as compassion, so it should also be admitted that Europe's affection for us depends on our a- binty and willingness to help If the ERP cannot be put'on a ) business basis, it can at least be put on a realistic one. We hear less talk today about America's debt to England for standing alone in the precarious year after Dunkirk. It would be well if it never were heard again. The English did not stand alone—for which eternal praise to them—but they did it to defend their country and its insti- utions, their families and themselves. They didn't fight with their backs to the wall to preserve continental America unscathed, even though that was one fortunate re- suit of their brave stand. This country was lucky, but so were its allies. Without full production, unhampered by bombings, T e strengthening bloodstream of L,end-Lease would not have flowed and victory might have been lost' America contributed much of her natural wealth to that bloodstream and she continues to do so today Too Great depletion of that that wealth can seriously delay Europe's recovery. American citizens and their gov- ernmcnt can be humanitarians without being sentimentalists. It is to the free world's advantage that we look to our own future strength even as we give of our present strength io assist others.

ARBOGAT Washington, Dec. 5—(#>)—A proposal the House cut the administration's $597,000,000 emergency foreign-aid program to ?300,000,000 came today from Ren. Jonkman (R-Mich). ~. Jonkman announced he will offer a formal amendment to that effect when the aid bill, now being debated by the House, is opened to amendments next Monday. In a speech prepared for House delivery. Jonkman contended the State Department has overestimated the needs of Italy, Austria and France. He said the administration's estimates were based on "haphazard facts." The Senate has passed a $597 000,000 bill for aid to the three European countries, as asked by President Truman.

Chances the administration will get House approval for anywhere near the amount it desires were dimmed further by the attitude of Rep. Taber (R-NY). He said the $597,000,000 asked is "too liberal." Taber is chairman of the House Appropriations Committee and as such wields powerful influence on the amount of funds voted by the House for any purpose. His committee will begin work next week on appropriations bills to back up whatever winter relief program many eventually Congress. be approved by All Arkansas Tax Sources Are Being Tapped - Sees Meet for Better Distribution — ———.n Government Workers of France Strike Bv MEL MOST Paris, Dec. 5 — (£>)—The French Government, harried by crippling, Communist-hatched work stoppages, ran headon into another strike today when government em- ployes began walking off ihe ;iob.

He said he will oppose the proposed Marshall long- range program for European recovery, but favors emergency aid to elieve actual distress in Europe. warning back to policies of the late President Roosevelt, Mason declared "the mess in Europe today is largely of our own making" and "stems irom the appeasement policy of the 'indispensable man' who headed this nation ior thirteen long years and directed our foreign relations during that time." The Marshall plan, Mason asserted, calls for the United States 'P.,' 'bleed, itself white to. ...furnish meblood to a patient who persists in following a course that continually saps his strength." In support of the bill, Rep. Javits (R-NYj told the House that "failure to enact it will result in communism taking over by force the governments of France and Italy this winter." He denied the measure would "uleed this country white," saying the maximum wheat shipments for relief will not exceed 60,000,000 bushels while the present voluntary conservation program already has saved 100,000,000 bushels. Rep. Lyle (D-Tex) urged passage of the bill and said he deplored any mood of fear on the part of Congress. "What the rest of the world needs is a spark of the spirit that has made America great," he said. "We have perhaps the greatest opportunity ot history— to spend not cold dollars, but a gift ot friendship to these people." Taber would not say how much " " age. No one was hurt.

Discounts Buying Spree in Russia London, Dec. 5 — (fP)— Citizens of the Soviet Union may be on a buying spree — as American reports said — but any idea of an economic crisis in the Soviet Union Principal defect found by the tax study is "the maldistribution of tax sources between the state 'and its local governments." • v ;• .-...,.
