Taft Gives Views
Senator Taft of Ohio said Mon
day that the recent Republican
congressional victories came
about as a result of lack of pub
lic confidence in the administra
tion's foreign policy.
Speaking at a Washington news
conference, Taft also told report
ers that nothing will be accomp
lished in the lame duck session
of congress which begins Nov. 27.
Senator Tatt believes that the
proposed military aid to Europe
program should be well gone over
before action is taken.
"Where we will get the money
and how we shall prevent infla
tion" are the problems involved
in deciding how big a military
program is needed for the coun
try, he said.
Taft is expected to confer with
Republican party leaders before
he winds up his brief Washington
