policy program published thi month in the magazine Life 2 He said he did not recom mend that or any fixed sum should be loaned tc Russia for reconstruction 3 He said that he did not say on arrival a La Guardia fieldNew York tha he loved all congressmen Having set the record straight Wallace said he had made it clear in bis European appearances thai the Truman foreign policies might lead to ruthless imperialism He also said that the internationa bank for reconstruction shoult make a very large loan to Rus sia at a low interest rate He said if he still were vice president he might love all con gressmen Wallace complained specifically that American for eign policy gave the United Na tions the run around The loan he was talking about in Europe Wallace explained was for around to cover

Wallace was asked whether he cared to comment on the state ment of Sen Arthur H Vanden berg R Mich that his appear ance in Europe was in the role of an itinerant saboteur Wallace had a good laugh at that one and replied I am not a person to take note of criticism I have a very thick hide and it bounces right off Wallace said he went abroad to strengthen the hands of those who want peace and in opposition to the division of the world into op posing eastwest or radicalcon servative groups He thought Mr Trumans plan to assist Greece and Turkey had caused such a radicalconservative cleavage in France and that the situation there might develop into civil war Wallace said he had no personal desire for public office but would run as hard as he could if he thought he could hfelp the cause of peace He avoided questions on third party prospects suggesting that a year from now would be j more suitable time for discussion in event both aajor parties wen conservative It is too early he said to
