In Pennsylvania, officials said more rain had fallen over the past

It will stay that way unless conditions change.

The United States has . . .
. . . granted 300 million dollars to bolster Britain's defense production.
It's about half what Britain said it would need. In announcing the
grant, Mutual Security Director W. Averell Harriman noted that Bri
tain is currently producing more military equipment than all other
European alies combined.
The money will come out of the seven billions appropriated by Con
gress under the Mutual Security Act. Herriman said the grant will be
used almost entirely for raw material and other items purchased up to
next July.
Harriman justified the grant with the explanation that without the
300 million. Britain would be forced to reduce its defense program mote
than twice as much. And he said it's vital that no such reduction should
be made.
