and press for it strongly through uni-
fied British-American action
"Simultaneously, Hoover also urges,
let us stop spending our gigantic
billions upon billions of relief . . .
through five or six different agencies,
whose activities are frequently not
coordinated, and let us centralize this
responsibility in a manner which will
insure a single clear aim and a larger
measure of efficiency.
"These are the essentials of a work-
able foreign policy. Experience has
been piling up evidence in their behalf
for many months."
The plan, advanced by Harold Stas-
sen, for earmaking 10 percent of
American production for world distri-
bution had a mixed reaction:
The Indianapolis News: "Mr. Stas-
sen's bold plan for devoting for the
next 10 years 10 percent of our total
national production of goods and food
to building 'for world-wide peace and
plenty and freedom' is not to be
lightly dismissed either in its concep-
tion or in its practical implications.
And, in its linking, not with actual
payment but with American rights to
raw materials and guarantees of in-
dividual economic freedom in the
regions where it would be received,
it commands solid appeal as- a basis
for discussion."
The Minneapolis Morning Tribune:
"Stassen's proposal... is sound in
its basic conception. What figure
should be agreed upon will be argued
vigorously, and Stassen's proposed 10
percent may be high. But the prin-
ciple of systematic and prolonged
assistance is what matters
The Dallas Morning News: "The
great dangers in any plan of this sort
are: (1) Under-estimation of unfore-
seen contingencies that may arise to
nullify the intended effect; (2) The
complexity that such a seemingly
simple plan can develop even without
the arising of unforeseen adverse
contingencies. Stassen is right in
assuming that America should go all-
out to help restore world- stability, but
he is naive in thinking that we can
chart a ten-year course. If Stassen
will look back over the newspaper
headlines for a period of a quarter of
a century, he will fail to find many
charted courses involving foreign
affairs that have lasted as long as
a year."
