WASHINGTON STUDIES USB
t)F U. S. TROOPS IN GREECE
Top-ranking: Washington officials
are wrestling with a politically ex
plosive subject: Under what condi
tions should American troops be sent
This question has been in the back
of the minds of administrative lead
ers since last Febranry, when Bri
tain suddenly notified Washington it
would be unable to meet its commit
ments in Greece and was withdraw
ing. That resulted* in the famous
Truman Doctrine and the $400,000,
000 Greek-Turkish aid program was
rushed through Congress.
But at that time it was understood
that while the United States would
take over Britain's economic and fi
nancial commitments and underwrite
the Greek Army, Britain would keep
tj?e few soldiers it had in.Greece. Ad
ministration leaders were bo alarmed
at the political repercussions stem
ming from any program for .replac
ing British troops with American
forces that they shrank from taking
oveff this British obligation.
Since then, however, the British
economic situation has developed in
to a first-class crisis.
Thus it is that Acting Secretary of
State Kobert A. Lavett admitted at
this week's press conference that
British and American officials were
discussing a schedule of withdrawal
for the last of Britain's troops. He
refused to go into the matter fur
ther and British sources in the capi
tal are equually reticent in discuss
ing the question.
It is common knowledge in Wash
ington, however, that Britain has
been progressively withdrawing its
troops from Greece ever since an
nouncement of the Truman aid pro
grain. The number, which stood at
10/100 six months ago now is down
to 3,000, and the British, it appear^,
are determined to eventually pull
even those out.
Informed observers here agree
that Washington is desperately try
ing to find some way of keeping
those few British troops in Greece,
because, while BmSll, they are a tre
mendous stabilizing force. In the
discussions that Mr. Lovett admitted
were going on, Britain is contem
plating speedy complete evacuation
of its troops and Washington is ar
guing for retention of at least a to
ken British force. That appears to
be the present status of discussions.
However, in the light of Britain's
plans, Afnerican policy makers are
now being forced to meet head-on
the question of whether or not Ame
rican troops should replace British
forces. It 48 pointed out in certain
diplomatic quarters that - neither!
President Truman nor State Depart
ment officials have said flatly that
American troops would not be sent
to Greece. They have said, the record
shows, that no troops were contem
plated, no plans
ing American boys to Greece. But
such statements are hardly equiva
lent to a "no, net, never" declara
It can be said on the highest au
thority that America's military chiefs
enmstrtsr it of the greatest import
ance to America's security that

latent information available."
Tho foreword, however, wye the
report has been deseed aa confiden
tial because "the production figures
for same countries will not agree
with _ the official estimates supplied
by the ministers of agriculture."
No countries in this cate^pry were
Jisted by name. But the report itaelf
says that throughout Europe "gov
ernment intervention is general, in
the production, collection, and distri
bution of moat agricultural products.
"This intervention has been linked
with a system of cojnpulsory farm
collections and fixed prices to farm

PUERTO RICO GROWERS
GET PRICE SUPPORT LOAN
The U. S. Department of Agricul
ture announces that contracts for
price support loans- at 90 per cent of
parity on 1946-crop Puerto Rico to
bacco were signed by the Commodity
Credit Corporation and two Puerto
Rico organizations of growers.
The two organizations are the
Puerto Rico Tobacco Marketing As
sociation at San. Joan and Cneecheros
de Tabaco de Utuado. Negotiations
are under way for similar contracts'
to be signed in the next few days
with Puerto Rico dealers.
The making of loans at 90 per cent
of parity on Puerto Rico tobacco is
required by the Agricultural Adjust
ment Act of 1988. However, this is
the first time that loans have been
requested by grower representatives,
since in past years prices have been
higher than the applicable loan le
Loans will be made through the

considerably less than this figure.
The 1948 crop has been estimated at
slightly less than 25 million pounds.
The CCC loans will be made on a
grade basis. They will average 26.1
cents per pound, which is 90 per cent
of parity as of October 1, 1946.
