The statement continued: "I have stated on many occasions my opposition to cancellation. Fur thermore, I do not feel the Amer lean people should be called upon to make further sacrifices. I have held, however, that advantages to us could be found by other forms of tangible compensation than by cash, such as expansion of mar kets for products of American ag riculture and labor.
