We have also made extensive loans '0r economic development and recon- *nction through the Export-Import Bank, for the eradication of foot and jfiouth disease in Mexico, for the "Uilding of the United Nations headquarters, to the European Coal and "tee] Community for the moderniza- «On of facilities, etc. W e have provided emergency 'amine relief assistance to such coun tries as Yugoslavia, India, and Pakistan, and distributed food parcels in the western sector of Berlin, where in 1955 nearly a million East Germans crossed the border to obtain them. Types of foreign aid may be briefly summarized as follows: (1) MILITARY ASSISTANCE is ordinarily a matter of joint financing with a foreign country, especially in the NATO area, of certain military facilities and activities; (2) OFF-SHORE PROCUREMENT provides for the purchase with American dollars of military equipment and materials which are provided to countries to whom we give military assistance; (3) DIRECT FORCES SUPPORT includes furnishing such items as petroleum, paint, tires, and uniforms; (4) DEFENSE SUPPORT is the furnishing of civilian commodities to countries which are eligible to receive our military help; (5) COUNTERPART FUNDS consist of the local currencies of aid- IX' THE HOT POTATO By Here Ficklen, Dallas Morning News 018 Forum News, June, 1956 receiving countries, which are generated as dollars-are exchanged for local currency or for commodities which are bought in the market-place of these countries; (6) TECHNICAL COOPERATION provides for the sending abroad for training and advisory purposes technicians in the fields of agriculture, forestry, fisheries. health and sanitation, and education, who may not use American funds for the purchase of ecpiipment and commodities except to the extent that they are necessary for instruction or demonstration purposes; and (7) DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE provides to countries not eligible to receive our military assistance certain commodities needed for projects or activities placed in operation by our foreign policy. GENERAL ARGUMENTS FOR FOREIGN AID In President Eisenhower's message to Congress he stated: "The need for a mutual security program is urgent because there are still nations that are eager to strive with us for peace and freedom, but without our help, lack the means of doing so.

We must continue to provide technical knowledge and essential materials to speed the advance of other nations in peaceful uses of tit- itom.
