CABINET MEETING, AUGUST 11, 1950
McCormick for Brannan
Briefed Cabinet on Korea.
U. N. Security Council had a private meeting yesterday in which Malik said he was carrying out his instructions from Moscow. In the open meeting Austin did a good job.
Has re-instated policy of not calling Reserves who are elected officials in House & Senate.
Is going to ask that bail for the 11 convicted Communists be withdrawn as Court has held that they are a danger to national security.
Is going to go over this appropriation bill with House Chairman Cannon. Is going to give him strong language on 10% horizontal (?) cut in Executive appropriation - cut in ECA funds and the granting of a loan to Spain which is hurting us with our allies in Western Europe who think we are abandoning our Defense lines and may move our line to the Pyrenees.
