All that, they made clear, can be accomplished without even the!

Representative Hall e c k (R.- who was majority leader of the 80th Congress, put the G.O.P. case this way: "Not since the Republican 80th Congress cut expenses and madej a payment on the national debt have we had a sensible fiscal pro- gram. "We can cut the President's budget not only enough to prevent a deficit but enough to make a payment, even a small one, on the national debt.

They gave even less chance of passage to an international trade organization resolution and the President's civil rights program. In his mildly-phrased message, the President didn't expand his "Fair Deal" but asked for action only on things he has talked about before. Republicans met this Immediate- ly with a scorching statement, signed by 100 House G.O.P. mem- bers, accusing the President of committing himself "to the even- tual socialization of the elimination of i American competitive system." Taft Cites Inconsistencies Senator Taft of Ohio, who heads the Senate G.O.P, policy commit- tee said Mr. Truman was incon- sistent in lauding free enterprise and at the same time advocating "measures which would destroy privileges to la- bor union bosses, the compulsory medical plan, the Brannan farm controls and increased taxes."

U.S. to Avoid China Conflict, Truman Hopes President Pledges Economic Aid To Nationalists Tru- man today declared an American hands off policy toward the Chinese island of Formosa. In a news conference statement, he said the United States has no de- sire to use its armed forces there or become involved "in the civil con- flict in China." He made clear the only help Chi- ang Kai-shek's government In For- mosa can expect from the United States is continuing economic aid. Mr. Truman said: "The United States has no preda- i tory designs' on Formosa or on any other Chinese territory. "The United States government will not pursue a course which will lead to involvement in the civil con- flict in China. "The United States government will not provide military aid or ad- vice to Chinese forces on Formosa. The United States government proposes to continue under existing legislative authority the present ECA program of economic assis- tance." Controversy Mr. Truman's declaration followed weeks of growing controversy at the Capitol over policy toward Formosa. Some Republicans among them Former President Herbert Hoover and Senator Taft of urged that the United States use its Navy, if necessary, to keep the Chi- nese communists from gaining For- mosa. The big Island, lying about 100 miles off the Chinese mainland, is the last stronghold of the Chinese Nationalists. Mr. Truman's statement followed a, meeting of the national security council last Thursday at which a general policy to this effect evident- ly was agreed upon by the chief executive and his top foreign policy and military advisers. Chlanr In Danfer State department officials see very little chance that Chiang and his forces will be able to hold Formosa for very long. They consider very great the danger of an internal 'breakdown, opening the door to communist conquest. Republican senators have assailed administration handling of Far Eastern affairs as "blundering." They have reinforced their criticism with demands for varying degrees of mil- itary force to help Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek keep the Island out of Chinese communist hands. The President departed from the text of his State of the Union mes- sage yesterday to throw in a round of praise for those backing the bi- partisan foreign policy. But this didn't satisfy a group of Republicans led by Senator Know- land of California. They still insist on a "full review" of policy in the Hermann N.
