'Kickback' to British
On Greek-Turkish Aid
Denied by Acheson
§y the Associated Frees
The State Department says
Great Britain may get some
American dollars out of the
$400,000,000 Greek-Turkish aid
program, but only by selling the
Greeks military equipment.
Undersecretary of State Acheson
denied flatly at a news conference
late yesterday that there will be
any “kickback" of funds to cover
British expenses in supporting the
Greek armed forces since March 31.
The British may obtain several
millions in badly needed dollar ex
change, he added, by delivering
munitions of a type which could not
be obtained elsewhere. This is be
cause the Greek Army now uses
British equipment.
Reporter Raises Question.
Similarly, Mr. Acheson said, Italy,
France and other countries which
need American dollars to buy goods
in this country may be able to
supply some of the things which
the United States will send into
The question was raised by a re
porter who told Mr. Acheson there
had been reports Britain would ask
a $20,000,000 reimbursement of
money spent since the March 31
date when the United States was
asked to take over the job of
bolstering Greece against Com
munist inroads.
Mr. Acheson replied that no such
issue has been raised.
Asked whether the United States
program is being delayed by fail
ure of President Truman to find
an administrator for the aid to
Greece, Mr. Acheson said he knew of
no delav vet. but that the man must
be named soon.
Experts to Submit Draft Soon.
He said the Americans who will
handle the aid should start for
Greece in the next week or so.
Mr. Acheson added that the draft
of an agreement with Greece for
carrying out the program will be
submitted soon to Secretary Mar
shall and President Truman by
State Department experts.
He said the civilian directors in
both Greece and Turkey will have
authority over the military ele
ments of their missions and that
the State Department does not in
tend to do any back-seat driving.
The directors will nave broad powers
to make decisions on the ground.
Secretary Marshall, Mr. Acheson
added, will have a co-ordinator and
expediter whose job will be to see
that the Greek and Turkish ad
ministrators get prompt action on
their recommendations to Washing
Mrs. Roosevelt Doubts
Woman Can Be President
By th» Associated Press
NEW YORK, May 24.—A woman
would have "no chance at all” to
be elected President, Mrs. Eleanor
Roosevelt says, "and what is more,
I wouldn't wish it on her.”
"If by some fluke a woman were
nominated and elected, she could
not hold her following,” Mrs. Roose
velt told the Foreign Press Associa
tion yesterday at a luncheon.
In this country, she said, the idea
of equalitv for women on all levels
has not been accepted yet, so the
mere presence of a woman in politi
cal office often causes resentment.

Stock Market Uneven
In Quiet Dealings
At Week's Close

NEW YORK, May 24.—Stocks
edged forward selectively In today’s
market but many losers persisted
and dealings were among the slowest
of the past three years.
It was the final Saturday session
unto next October and board rooms,
as well as the Stock Exchange floor,
were sparsely populated. The ticker
tape loafed from the start and
narrow irregularity ruled near the
close with numerous pivotals un

Timid short covering and invest
ment bidding, together with further
pleasing dividends and earnings
compilations, served as props for
individual favorites. The few pro
fessional and customers who showed
up in Wall Street, however, dis
played considerable caution be
cause of the fact the market had
enjoyed five successive recovery
days. The advance, some figured,
was a fair-sized, technical correc
tion and left the list in a position
where it would have to operate on
news developments. Uncertainties
surrounding the economic picture,
taxes and labor legislation continued
as a restrictive influence.
Bonds followed a slim course.

2 Sentenced After Pleas
