George is a member of the Sen- ate foreign relations group, and Knowland of the armed services committee which are trying to complete action on the bill. All that remains to do is to work out lan- guage for an amendment on use of some of the money for retool- ing European arms plants. Major work on the bill was com- pleted Friday when the combined committees voted for Atlantic pact nations, divided 50-50 between cash and contract authori- zation and with some restrictions on use of the cash; for 3reece and Turkey; for Iran, Korea and the Philippines, and to be used in the Far East at the discretion of Pres- ident Truman.

The drive behind this proposal comes largely from Paul Hoffman) and his E.c.A. Hoffman came back from his recent trip to Europe with two convictions. The first was that! only the most drastic measures j could prevent European trade from seizing up, and the European ec- ononies from foundering. His sec-j OP conviction was that the impulse! toward union on the continent was I genuine and deep, and required only some catalyst to transform it! into reality. Hoffman concluded] that some form of economic union! was not only urgently necessary.! but practicable. On his return, he discussed this conclusion at length 1 with President Truman, and Tru- man enthusiastically agreed. AT THE SAME TIME, the E.C.A. officials who have .had the painful experience of dealing with; Congress all ad- ministrators like William Foster; and Tyler Wood, as well as Hoff-l man himself have reached a) further conclusion. This is that] some dramatic and visible results! of the E.C.A. operations are essen-j tial. Otherwise, they believe, the mounting congressional resistance! to E.C.A. will certainly transform; the third year's program into a! marginal surplus-dumping opera-! tion at best. And E.C.A. must go! back to Congress for third year ap-i proprititions by next April. Meanwhile, the State department; planners have also decided thatj political as well as economic con-j siderations demand some form of real continental union. But they; have Hoffman and the E.C.A. men inclu-' sion of Britain in such a project is. for all sorts of reasons impracti-> cal.

Claims State Purchased in Routine Way Youngdahl Grills Investment Chief At Probe Session St. Paul Charles A. Fuller, head of a Minneapolis investment firm bearing his name, testified at a hearing in Governor Young- dahl's' office today that it is cus- tomary for bond companies to seek a market in advance of public bond sales. Fuller's company sold worth of Arkansas bonds to the state of Minnesota. Fuller was the first witness to- day at the second session of a hear- ing before the state executive on the removal of Charles Foster as secretary of the state investment board. The governor asks Foster's dis- charge. He has charged that Fos- ter was a party to a secret agree- ment to purchase the bonds and that Foster falsified records of the board concerning purchase of the bonds. In response to a question from his attorney, Carl Cummins, Fuller de- scribed the bonds as a "sound in- vestment" because the full faith and credit of the state of Arkansas is pledged to their redemption. Fuller said he had talked with two members of the investment board State Auditor Stafford King and George Lawson before the June 8 meeting at which the bond purchase was agreed upon and that his representative William Hammerill, had talked to State Treasurer Julius Schmahl and At- torney General Burnquist. The governor interrupted several times. Once he cautioned Fuller to name only those he had talked with. He indicated Fuller had im- plied that he had personally talked with four board members.
