WASHINGTON, May 26 —(/R)_
Fh-esldent Truman asked congress
today to approve a broad program
of military cooperation with all
western hemisphere nations. In-
cluding the arming, training, and
organization of the armed forces
of Latin America and Canada.
Declaring that world develop-
ments In the past year give “still
greater importance" to close hemis-
phere collaboration than a year
ago—when similar legislation was
proposed — Mr. Truman asked
prompt congressional action.
A key segment of the program
Is the standardization of arma-
ments throughout the hemisphere,
and the transfer of U. S. military
and naval equipment to the sis-
ter government by "sale of other
Views Are stated
"This government will not. I am
sure, In any way approve of, nor
will it participate In, the Indiscri-
minate of unrestricted distribution
of armaments,” Mr. Truman said.
The White House forwarded the
message to congress for Mr. Tru-
man who Is In Missouri where his
mother Is 111.
The president assured the leg-
“It is my Intention that any
operations under this bill, whlcL
the congress may authorize shall
be In every way consistent with
the wording and spirit of the
united nations charter."
The president said the United
States did not desire to "raise un-
necessarily" the size of armaments
in the western hemisphere.
Rather, he made it clear, the
aim is one of standardization of
arms so that the western hemis-
phere nations can more easily co-
operate with each other.
Mr Truman sent a draft of the
proposed legislation to congress
along with his request for a pro-
gram under which this country
would cooperate with Canada and
the 20 American Republics In the
training, organization and equip-
ping of all their armed forces.
Earlier Request Falls
The president made a similar
request to congress last year. A bill
was approved by the house foreign
affairs committee but was not
passed by either house
Mr Truman's message was sent
to congress shortly after recom-
mendations on a new hemispheric
arms program were received at the
White House from Secretary of
State George C. Marshall, Secre-
tery of Navy James Forrestal and
Secretary of War Robert Patter-
In addition, plans are being
made for convening the Inter-
American conference in Rio de
Janeiro, probably late this summer,
to draft a permanent defense
treaty among the American na-
Under h1® proposed bill, Mr. Tru-
man would be authorized to enter
into agreemenls with other Amer-
ican nations for the training of
military and naval personnel, for
the maintenance and repair of
their military or naval equipment
and for the transfer of arms, am-
munition and other war materiel,
