Founded At
Paris Parley
Will Administer
'Marshall Plan'
By The Associated Press
PARIS, July 15-Swiftly and
without division, the 16-nation
European Economic Conference
completed today its blueprint of
an organization to draft and ad-
minister continental reconstruc-
tion outside the aloof Russian
sphere, under the Marshall Plan
of U.S. aid.
The Conference's third plenary
session, meeting for only 45 min-
utes, unanimously approved a
rules committee recommendation
to establish a general "committee
of cooperation," or steering com-
mittee, a five-nation executive
{ board and four technical boards.
Committees To Survey
The lesser committees will sur-
vey Europe's resources and dollar
needs by Sept. 1. Delegates per-
used with care Secretary of State
Marshall's address in Salt Lake
City last night indicating the pro-
gram would not be submitted to
Congress before January.
Paul-Henri Spaak, the Belgian
Premier, summed up paraphras-
ing an old French proverb: "Help
yourself and heaven will help
you." Instead of heaven, he sub-
stituted the United States.
k Apparently referring to Russia
and the eight Eastern and South-
ern European states in its sphere-
all of which spurned the confer-
ence on the assertion that econ-
omic cooperation would threaten
national sovereignties, Spaak
said .:
* Spaak Speaks
"We have often heard talk of
the sovereignty of states. Experi-
ence shows that there is a tenden-
cyeto invoke sovereignty as a cloak
for aggressive nationalism or a
selfish economic policy. We think
that sovereignty should be used
as something to promote a con-
structive spirit of cooperation."
Today's plenary session will be
the last until the various com-
mittees are ready to report on
their surveys. The next plenary
meeting will be made in August or
around Sept. 1

Situation in Greece

Explosion Soon, Council Told;

A possibility that the great'
powers of the East and West may
live in peace in spite of differing
idealogies was outlined yesterday
by Prof. John N. Hazard, of Co-
lumbia University.
Analyzing the princifple fea-
tures in the Eastern and Western
idealogies, Prof. Hazard said that
''wars will not- popularize'' the
features which might appeal to
additional adherents. He empha-
sized that Soviet leaders realize
that their system cannot be in-
stituted successfully unless a ma-
jority of a nation wants it and is
willing to go through hardship to
achieve it.
WarOnly Postpones
"A war could only postpone the
possibility of proof, and is there-
fore undesirable as a means of
"need not spell war, unless there
spreading the ideology," he said.
Prof. Hazard declared that the
f a c t that both the United
States and Russia talk ideology
and encourage "the intervening
nations to accept their systems
must be scrutinized to determine
whether it is the major issue."
Although means of propaganda
and mass influence will certainly
be used on the part of supporters
of each opposing ideology in an
effort to expand the area in which
the ideologies are currently pop-
ular, Prof. Hazard said that the
resulting friction and conflict

are .reasons for it other than the
dissemination of ideology."
Disagreements Listed
Among the major centers of
disagreement outlined by Prof.
Hazard were: the role of the state,
the place of the individual in so-
ciety, the function of law, the
nature and function of political
parties and the role of the press.
"These are not newly risen
problems to plague Amnwrcan-So-
viet relations," Prof. Hazard said.
Several have been debated since
the time of the Greek philosoph-
ers, he said.
"Evidence indicates that it
would be a mistake to. think that
the world is divided between peo-
ples who support either extreme
without reservation," Prof. Haz-
ard said.

New G(
U.S. Asserts
Vital to Peace
Directive Provides
For Demilitarization
By The Associated Press
BERLIN, July 15 -- (/) --The
United States Government, an-
nouncing a revised policy toward
Germany, declared today "a stable
and productive Germany," with a
higher standard of living was es-
sential to European recovery and
lasting peace.
The new policy; first over-all
American directive on Germany
since the end of the war - ap-
parently opens the way for Ger-
man participation in the Mar-
shall proposal for European re-
Directive To Clay
The new directive was sent to
Gen. Lucius D. Clay, U.S. Military
Governor, by U.S. State, War and
Navy Departments. It represent-
ed an updating of American oc-
cupation policy, which officially
had been based largely upon the
old Joint Chiefs of Staff directive
to Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and
the Military Government dated
April 16, 1945, three weeks before
the end of the war.
American Objectives
The new 6,000-word directive
laid down American objectives
and basic policies to be pursued in
the U.S. administration of still-
partitioned Germany. It contain-
ed especially in its economic as-
pects, some policy revisions which
stated officially and publicly for
the first time.
U.S. Military Government lead-
ers said they regarded the docu-
ment as the most important
American statement on Germany
since the speech of former Secre-
tary of State James F. Byrnes in
Stuttgart last fall, when he advo-
cated the return of self-govern-
ment to the Germans as quickly
as possible.
Wants Germany Demilitarized
The U.S. Directive repeatedly
made it plain that America wants
Germany demilitarized perman-
ently. It said that "there should
be no relaxation of effort to com-
plete and effectively maintain the
disarmament and demilitariza-
tion of Germany."
But it added that, within the
limits of these "necessary res-
traints" Germany should be per-
mitted to raise her standard of
living by development of her re-
sources and should be aided in
achieving a self-sustaining econ-
The directive also provided that
funds for German expenditures
should be increased "where ne-
cessary to speed the restoratiorr
of normal international commer-
cial relations."
New Inflation
Caclled "Unlikely
Congressmen Told
Future Looks Bright
WASHINGTON, July 15-()-
Two business leaders today dis-
counted fears of a new inflation-
ary spree, and told Congress that
Americans have reason to look to
the future with confidence.
Here is what they testified be-

fore the joint congressional com-
mittee on the Economic Report:
1. George M. Humphrey, Pitts-
burgh, head of the world's largest
commercial coal company, who
helped negotiate the new con-
tract with John L. Lewis' United
Mine Workers:
"The new coal wage contract
will do more to stabilize the econ-
omy and retard inflation than set-
tlement of any controversy in the
industry in several years." He
said he thinks it will not affect
wages in other industries.

the National Association of Man-

Scholars Hunt Down Strange Tongues

The Linguistic Institute has con-
ducted half of its 20 years of re-
search here, according to its direc-
tor, Prof. Hans Kurath, because
of the availability of outstanding
language projects and excellent
library resources.
A unique linguistic atlas of the
United States and Canada illus-
trating geographical influences on
language, being compiled here
from reports of field workers, Dr.
Kurath specified, attracts profes-
sors and students from all parts
of the country. A dictionary of

York, the University of North
Carolina and the University of
Wisconsin, Dr. Kurath said, the
Institute has now been at Michi-
gan since 1931, with an interrup-
tion of only two years..
The program this year, he ex-
plained, which is more complete
than it was during the war years,
has attracted many younger schol-
ars who had been out of touch
with linguistics during their years
in the armed forces. Traditional
introductory courses in general
linguistics, phonetics, phonemics
and historical grammar of various

provement of language instruc-
tion, are the four main objectives
of the Linguistic Institute, Dr.
Kurath said, adding that no other
center in the world is attempting
to do the same thing. Research
scholars are taught how to handle
people and what questions to ask
them, he explained. Some Chinese
and Japanese students, who spend
20 hours a week with instructors
in English, learn the language in
two semesters, he said. The most
important thing in learning a
language is first to become ac-
quainted with sounds, he explain-
