O'Leary The Marshall Plan from now on should be changed to a system of American loans direct to for eign businessmen, instead of to their governments, in the opinion of Senator Ferguson, Republican, of Michigan. On his return from a world tour he told a news conference yesterday that the Economic Co operation Administration, which administers the Marshall Plan, has been “on the wrong track” and is encouraging socialism in some parts of Europe. The Senator called for a re survey of all Marshall Plan proj ects to see how many of them could be converted into direct loans to private individuals or business concerns abroad. The Senator would then complete the remaining projects, but limit fu ture assistance to American tech nical advice. Showing concern over the march of communism in the Orient, Senator Ferguson opposed Amer ican recognition of Red China and advocated doing whatever is necessary to keep Formosa free from domination by Communist China, because he regards it as a strategic spot in the present world situation. Senator Ferguson suggested that the United States should announce that Formosa is a part of Japan and, therefore, is con quered territory and should so remain until a peace treaty is worked out for that area. He said he is satisfied Red China would not attempt to take it over in the face of such an announce ment, but he told reporters he would use troops, if necessary, to hold it. The Michigan Senator said he is convinced military men in the Pacific agree with his views. Falangists Blame Masons For Spain's Ills Since 1800 By tht Associated Press MADRID, Dec. 13.—Arriba, or gan of the Falange Party, de clared yesterday that Freemasonry is to blame for all of Spain's mis fortunes since the 19th century.

Predicted easier co-operation between the CIO and the Ameri can Federation of Labor at home, after their recent co-operation in forming the International Con federation of Free Trade Unions at London last week. 2. Criticized as “intolerable” French controls on wages without controls on prices, and said that French unions would have to sup port other parties if the govern ment would not make policy in labor’s interest. 3. Indorsed the Marshall Plan ,‘TOO per cent.” but added that it would have to “drill some big holes” to get aid ‘‘to trickle down” from the top to ‘‘the great mass of the people.” 4. Said American industry is competitive and Europe’s is con trolled by cartels. If he had to, choose between an industry con trolled by the cartels and one con trolled by the people, he would prefer one controlled by the people. 5.
