Nourse Endorses
'Brannan Plan'

GOP Favors
As Chairman


Wins ERP Fight,

Edwin G. Nourse, chairman of
the President's Council of Eco-
nomic Advisers, yesterday endors-
ed several of the principles of the
controversial Brannan farm plan.
Nourse is here as a lecturer in
the University's summer session
lecture series on "Natural Re-
sources in World Affairs."

IN A SPECIAL interview, Nourse
told The Daily that "it is highly
desirable that the parity formula
be brought up to date, and that
it be kept up to date as conditions
change." The Brannan plan would

U.S., British
Hold Talks
On .defense
LONDON-(A') - Plans for de-
fending the Atlantic Pact nations
of Western Europe took form yes-
terday at the first conference of
top-level British and American
commanders here since the end
of the war.
Following a closely guarded,
four-hour conference, Admiral
Louis E. Denfeld, U.S. Chief of
Naval Operations, said the com-
pletion of a defense setup under
the North Atlantic Treaty "might
be done before the end of the
would take too long," Denfeld said,
reporting "considerable progress"
by the joint chiefs of staff of the
two nations.
Denfeld, Gen. Omar Bradley,
army Chief of Staff, and Gen.
Hoyt S. Vandenberg, U.S. Air
Force Chief, met formally for
three hours, then chatted infor-
mally an hour longer with Brit-
ish commanders. They were ac-
companied by Maj. Gen. A. M.
Gruenther, U.S. Joint Staff Sec-
The four Americans flew here
after talks in Germany with Ital-
ian and Luxembourg military
chiefsand U.S. occupation com-

and Norwegian armed forces lead
ers here today, then proceed to
Paris for talks with the French,
Belgians, Dutch and Portuguese.
DETAILS of yesterday's discus-
sion at the British cabinet offices
in Whitehall were not disclosed.
It was known, however, that
they centered on two problems:
1. The type and size of land,
sea and air forces necessary to
keep the peace in Europe against

since 1921. Last month's election
resulted in a landslide victory for
the Liberals and its leader Louis

bring about such a change in the
parity formula.
Parity refers to the adjust-
ment of current farm prices so
that they bear the same rela-
tionslip to certain lion-agri-
cultural prices as did farm prices
to the same non-agricultural
prices in a base period which
was reasonably prosperous for
the farmer.
"Economically, the principle of
having income support rather than
price support is a sound one,"
Nourse said. The Brannan plan
calls for just such income support.
* * *
NOURSE added that "the level
at which farm income is to be
supported must not be so high as to
affert the government's budget
adversely, nor so rigid as to pre-
vent shifts from surplus produc-
tion areas."
The economist described the
current employment picture as
This comment was based on
figures released yesterday by the
census bureau, which showed that
employment this month was high-
er than that for any other month
this year, with only a slight in-
crease in unemployment.
NOURSE also answered an at-
tack which Sen. Harry F. Byrd
(D.-Va.) made recently on the
Council of Economic Advisers.
Byrd had asktd if ideas expressed
by the council were "American."
In answer to this question,
Nourse said "My family came to
Massachusetts in 1642. I learned
my economics at Cornell and the
University of Chicago.
"There are no foreign ele-
ments in my economics, except
in the sense that truth, is inter-
According to Nourse, the func-
tion of the Council of Economic
Advisers is "not to develop par-
ticular doctrines of its own, but
to try to process the best of eco-
nomic thinking for consideration
by the President."
Nourse will speak at 4:15 p.m.
today in Rackham Lecture Hall
on the Marshall and Truman
plans, among other things. His
general topic is "Quo Vadimus."

Beats Down Funds

Seen in Scott Job
WASHINGTON -(P) - Repub-
licans gathering for their "har-
mony" meeting today reported
yesterday it was Guy George Gab-
rielson of NewaJersey against the
field for election as National Com-
mittee Chairman.
All contended that the N'ew
Jersey committeeman was in the
lead to succeed retiring Rep. Hugh
Scott of Pennsylvania. Whether
he had enough votes was debat-
able, however.
WESTERN delegations were try-
ing to find a candidate west of
the Alleghenies who would com-
mand substantial support in op-
position. Members from the key
1948 Republican states of New
York and Pennsylvania also were
looking for a man, although pub
licly they said they were not for
or against anyone.
All agreed that the new chair-
man, who will hold office until
the 1948 national convention,
should have the backing of a
substantial majority of the 102
member committee (there are
three vacancies), not just a bare
Gabrielson's opponents were
talkin gof committeemen Harry
Darby of Kansas and Arthur E.
Summerfield of Michigan, but
both told reporters they were un-
available because they feel they
cannot leave their businesses for
the full time committee job.
* * *
THE WESTERN opposition was
discussing Axel J. Beck of South
Dakota, a committee member, and
A. T. (Bert) Howard, state chair-
man of Nebraska. Friends of both
were conducting open campaigns,
but others said support for them
was only scattered.
The opposition to Gabrielson
centered around the argument
that he was for Senator Taft of
Ohio for the Presidential nom-
ination last year and that he
comes from the east. The east
is already represented by Sen.
Brewster of Maine and Rep.
Leonard W. Hall of New York,
as chairme nof the Senate and
House campaign committees.
Gabrielson, when asked about
this, told newsmen he was for
Taft in 1948, but was not a dele-
gate to the convention. He said
he is "completely neutral" as to
future presidential candidates, and.
would not take the job if he were
not. He also replied that he was
born and raised in Iowa.
* * *
"NO ONE CAN unite the party
unless he is neutral and the same
goes for Republican factions in
the party," he said.
Gabrielson said he is available
if the party wants him and added:
"My friends tell me I have a ma-
jority of the committee."
Opponents disputed this and
added Gabrielson's support was
shaky in spots.

Vice President Barkley, the
Senate's presiding officer, ruled
that the amendment offered by
Senator McClellan (D-Ark.) was
an attempt to write new legis-
lation into an appropriation bill,
forbidden by Senate rules.
Senator Lucas of Illinois, raised
the point of order. Senator M-
Kellar (D-Tenn.) appealed from
Barkley's ruling.
THE DECISION, taken late in
the day, removed the biggest
threat to final approval of the
measure, now confidently antici-
pated by its backers. A similar but
somewhat more involved parlia-
mentary dispute last weekad

year, $900,000,00 for the army's
government and relief expenses
in occupied areas, and smaller
sums to furnish economic aid to
Greece and Turkey.
In a lengthy speech, McClellan
insisted on consideration of his
crop amendment. If adopted, none
of the money set up for the pur-
chase of surplus crops would have
been used for any other purpose.
McCLELLAN called his proposal
a taxpayers' amendment.
