Laurel Sends Truman
Assurances of Amity
By the Associated Press
MANILA, Oct. 21.—The minor
ity party of Jose P. Laurel, puppet
Philippines president under the
Japanese, today sent President
Truman assurances of “our friend
ly attitude.”
Laurel, Nacionalista party can
didate, is opposing President Elpi- .
dio Quirino of the Liberal Party
for the presidency in the election
November 8.
The Nacionalistas have become
alarmed by a stream of press dis
patches from Washington quoting
Congressmen ,as favoring suspen
sion of American aid to the Philip
pines until the election is decided.
Laurel is backed by Communists.
He insists this is because he is
considered the “lesser of two
evils.”
Eulogio Rodriguez, president of
the Nacionalista Party, sent a
message to Mr. Truman taking
note of recent speeches by Repre
sentatives Smith, Republican of
Wisconsin, and Crawford, Repub
lican, of Michigan.
Rodriguez sent separate cables
to Mr. Smith and Mr. Crawford
saying that Laurel had “frankly
stated his friendly attitude to your
country because of moral and fi
nancial support of American busi
nessmen here and in America.”
Plans Drafted to Help
West Berlin Economy
By tfi« Associated Press
BONN. Germany, Oct. 21.—A
joint Allied-West German pro
gram for financial aid to West
Berlin’s stalemated economy is be
ing worked out, an Allied high
commission spokesman disclosed
last night.
Western German Chancellor
Konrad Adenauer met for three
hours yesterday with the Amer
ican, British and French high
commissioners. He has been asked
to submit an aid program to the
commission for its consideration,
said the spokesman, an American.
The projected aid probably will
include use of Economic Co-oper
ation Administration counterpart
funds to bulwark the economy of
the Western sectors of the once
blockaded city, he said. The coun
terpart funds are marks set aside
by the Germans to match ECA
aid.
The high commissioners offered
the aid of their economic experts
to the German government on
Berlin’s economic situation.
The commission approved a law
to restore "industrial, literary and
artistic property rights in Ger
many of Allied nations and na
tionals which were confiscated,
cancelled or impaired as a result
of the war.”
