U. 5. Advises Europe
Rian for Aid Must Be
-Reasonable, Realistic
fy th» Aitocicittd Rresi
The 16 nations drafting a
blueprint for Europe’s economic
recovery received official Amer
ican advice today that to win
United States’ acceptance the
plan mlist be both reasonable
and realistic.
Undersecretary of State Robert A.
Lovett coupled this admonition with
the further stipulation that de
mands on American aid must di
minish by next year.
Mr. Lovett tossed out these ad
ditional ideas as the Paris confer
ence on the Marshall Plan neared a
deadline for further estimates on
wrfat American assistance Europe
must receive to regain its economic
health: .
1. This Government is more in
terested in a plan of self-help and
mutual aid which will really work
than in the dollar estimate of costs.
No Comment on 29-Billion Cost.
He left unanswered a question
whether the State Department
deems 'too high the calculation re
portedly reached at Paris that
Europe will need $29,000,000,000 or
more from the United States over
the next four years.
2. In screening the estimates be
fore submitting them to Congress
for approval, American officials will
give first consideration to needs at
home.
3. The United States is ready now
to extend friendly aid at Paris in
completing the European estimates,
although until now American of
ficials on the scene have kept hands
off.
Two top State Department ex
perts, George P. Kennan and Charles
Bonesteel, are en route to Paris to
advise Will L. Clayton, Undersecre
tary of State, for Economic Affairs;
and Ambassador Jefferson Caffery.
The ‘‘friendly aid” Mr. Lovett
ftientioried at a news conference late
yesterday was proferred by secre
tary of State Marshall in his orig
inal June 5 suggestions that the
European nations take the initiative
in working out jointly a schedule of
their urgent needs.
Throughout the early stages of the
Paris planning American officials
have kept on the sidelines while
Communist critics were charging the
United States actually was dictating
to the conference which Russia and
her satellites boycotted.
A deadline of September 1 has
been set for the final estimates, but
officials here look for detailed plan
ning abroad to continue possibly
until September 15.
By then it is hoped major con
clusions will be known from a sep
arate study of European needs and
American aid possibilities being
made by the 19-man nonpartisan
survey group headed by Secretary
of Commerce Harriman.

table, a voluminous mass of data
and recommendations from other
official and congressional groups is
due in time to permit congressional
hearings by mid-October or soon
thereafter.
One governmental committee
named by President Truman to try
to gauge this country's ability to
continue large-scale foreign aid ex
pects to complete'its findings earlier
than that.
James Boyd, new director of the!
Bureau of Mines, said the inventory
he has been conducting at the di
rection of Secretary of the Interior
Krug should be completed by next
week.
Still other independent studies
are being made by a governmental
committee headed by Dr. Edwin G.
Nourse, chairman of Mr. Truman’s
Council of Economic Advisers,'and
within the State Department by a
policy group directed by Mr. Ken
nan.
Mr. Kennan and Mr. Bonesteel
left Washington by plane almost at
the same time that a 19-man spe
cial House committee sailed from
New York aboard the Queen Mary
to make its own survey of what
Europe requires.
This committee, headed by Repre
sentative Herter, Republican, of
Massachusetts, expects to visit 15
countries.
Benefit Movie Given

Receipts from a benefit movie
performance for Martha Jane Re
pass, 13-year-old Gaithersburg

The girl has been in Suburban
Hospital, Bethesda, since August 14,

The benefit performance was

Meanwhile, nurses at the hospital

consciousness.

Of 8,000 Troops on Border
ly th» Associated Press
TEHERAN, Iran. Aug. 28—An
Iranian Army staff officer said to
day army officials ‘‘accept as fact”
reports that 8,000 armed men are
massed on Iran’s northern border
in Russian Azerbaijan.
The number was said to include
outlaw Kurdish tribesmen from Iraq
and irregulars of the wrecked rebel
regime which once ruled Iranian
Azerbaijan.
Two brigades of Iranian motorized,
troops, including a company of light
tanks, moved out from Teheran yes
terday for an unannounced des

MOSCOW. Aug. 28 (/Pi.—Pravda’s
special correspondent in Teheran re
ported today that United States
Army officers were frequenting
Iranian frontier areas near Soviet
Azerbaijan.
"According to reports from Tabriz

baijan, the sally of reactionaries
headed by officials close to the Shah
is increasing more and more,” said
the dispatch to the Communist
Party newspaper.
Women in U. S. Jobs Decrease
From 1,106,100 to 440,700
The number of women in Federal
Government jobs In the United
States declined from a wartime peak
of 1,106,100 to 440,700 as of July 1,
the Civil Service Commission re
ported today.
Successive reductions since V-J
day have slashed womeij personnel
in Government departments and
agencies to 40 per cent of the maxi
mum wartime total, but in the June
survey there still were 2*4 times
more than the 1939 level of 172,000.
Increased hiring of Government
women began in the five years pre
ceding this Nation’s entry into the
war, but the ratio of one woman to
four men workers was maintained.
In three years during the war the
numoer oi women employes in
creased 839,700, or 315 per cent,
reaching the peak of 1,106,100 in
July, 1944, and continuing with
more than 1,000,000 through August,
1945.
Between June, 1945, and July,
1947, the net decrease in women
amounted to 651,800, or 60 per cent,
while that of men was 413,800, or
23 per cent.
In the June sufvey the War De
partment was employing more
women than any other unit, 88,300,
or 25 per cent of its entire staff.
The Post Office Department’s 470,
300 employes, greatest of any de
partment, includes 42,900 women,
9 per cent of the total.

MIAMI, FLA.—EVICTED FAMILIES FIND REFUGE IN CITY HALL—Huddled in the street beside
their parents’ possessions, these children are part of 14 who had slept out of doors since their
eviction Monday from the hutments of a veterans’ village. The Miami Springs City Council
last night turned the City Hall over to them as a temporary shelter. “We would have been out
there two night ago.” Acting Mayor Tom Curry said, “but we never believed that responsible agen
cies actually would let such a condition exist.” Nine of the children belong to Mr. and Mrs. Robert
E. Morris and five to Mrs. Palmer Wood. The village has been operated as an emergency housing
project by a Miami American Legion post under a contract with-the Dade County Commission,
but was ordered closed last June after the Legion declared it was opeVating at a loss.

Greenbelt Co-op Tests
Popularity in Poll lor
Resolution Signers
Greenbelt Consumer Services, Inc.,
today put its popularity in the town
to the test by circulating a resolu
tion of approval among the 4,000.
families of the community.
Designed as an answer to the
finding Saturday of a House Small
Business Subcommittee that the
co-op is a "monopoly” and is favored
by only a minority of residents, the
measure, which was passed by GCS
last night:
1. Voices support of the board of
directors on its policies of providing
“adequate” supplies and services to
the community.
2. “Deplores the tiiased nature of
the so-called House hearing” in that
the subcommittee "failed to call
witnesses favorable to the co-op
for testimony.”
Not Opposed to Competition.
3. Does not oppose introduction
of private enterprise into the town,
so long as “unfair competition” is
not oflered the co-op in price wars.
4. Urges the Public Housing Ad
ministration to abide by its present
10-year lease to GCS.
More than 400 members of the co
operative unanimously favored in
principle the measures submitted at
the third quarterly meeting held last
night In Greenbelt Center School.
Reports on the two-day House
hearing last week were given by
Prank J. Lastner, secretary of the
GCS board of directors, and Paul
Borsky, both of whom testified be
fore the subcommittee.
Mr. Lastner said he was “amazed”
that the group “could have offered
its final report in a month, much
less 20 minutes,” the time, he
charged, the 2-to-l majority took to
render its findings.
Compares Profits.
The secretary “couldn't under
stand" how a small business com
mittee of the House “could condone
an $800,000,000 yearly net profit or
ganization like Safeway Stores, and
yet call our $38,000 net margin co-op
corporation a ‘monopoly’.”
“The subcommittee is kicking us
around like a football,” he said. “But
GCS is one that won’t break.”
Mr. Borsky declared that, “if our
co-op is a monopoly, it is one that
certainly benefits the whole com
munity—and I never heard of a
monopoly doing that before." He
added the co-op has built up a busi- |
ness “from the beginning when pri-,
vate enterprise Was afraid to take |
the risk.”
“Now that the fruit has ripened,
private enterprise wants to step in!
and grab it," he added.
Dayton Hull, head of the director’s
board, presided.
Truman to Meet Sponsors
Of Norwalk's Plan for U.N.
Senator McMahon. Democrat, of
Connecticut, conferred with Presi
dent Truman yesterday and told
reporters later that the President
had agreed to meet with sponsors
of the so-called Norwalk plan to
strengthen the United Nations.
The Norwalk program, formulated
by a public forum in Senator Mc
Mahon’s home town of Norwalk,
Conn., has as its chief objective,
the Senator’s jOfflce said, abolition
of the veto power which has been
used frequently by Russia in U. N.
Security Council deliberations.
Senator McMahon said Mr. Tru
man told him he would receive a
delegation of the plan’s sponsors
after he returns from his trip to
South America!
Norman Cousins, editor of the
Saturday Review of Literature,
served as moderator of the forum,
which meets weekly during the
winter months. An aide to Senator
McMahon said that Mr. Cousins
probably would be a member of the
delegation to meet with the Presi
dent. Other members have not been
chosen, he said.
