Rio's Housing Shortage
Among World's Worst Rio de Janeiro has one of thi world’s most acute housing short ■ I ! ■ jLn'u, ii ii i mm ■ ii.min.. iMI . . i.. - Both Mo and Sao Paulo found that inflation led to a flocking cf country folk to the cities to seek their fortunes and hotels are jam med with would-be long-term resi dents. This is proving a serious handicap to Brazil’s attempt to recapture much of the tourist trade. Tass Story Indicates That Senate Majority Opposes Greek Aid By th* Associated Press MOSCOW, April 18.—Soviet news papers carried today a Tass dis patch on the United States Senate debate on President Truman’s pro posals for aid to Greece and Tur key, giving Russian readers a dis tinct impression that the bill was meeting with criticism from a ma jority of Senators. The dispatch quoted Senator Brooks, Republican, of Illinois as saying Greece could not be con sidered a democracy and that Tur key had a tyrannical dictatorship. It said Senator Brooks branded the bill as “the beginning of a chain reaction which will involve the United States in constant con flicts throughout the hemisphere.” The account said Senator Pepper, Democrat, of Florida questioned Chairman Vandenberg of the Sen ate Foreign Relations Committee on the bill, and added that Senator Vandenberg declared the bill con templated a broader aim than aid to Greece and Turkey. Tass said Senator Kem, Repub lican, of Missouri objected to the bill as being primarily military, rather than humanitarian, and that aid to Greece was only a disguise. Hie agency said Senator Kem de clared that the expansion of Amer ican military frontiers to the Dar danelles should not be presented to the American people under the guise of aid. The account also contained a statement attributed to Senator Kain, Republican, of Washington that he would vote for the bill, but without enthusiasm. The story was carried by Pravda, the Communist Party newspaper, the government organ, Izvestia, and the Red Army newspaper, Red Star. The newspapers withheld editorial comment.
