Mr. Brown, chairman of the Johns-Mansville Corporation, was invited to Germany by General Clay, and this is his report on "How to get Germany eventually off the backs of the American taxpayers." He wants to set industry in western Germany on its feet as an essential step toward the revival of western Europe under the Marshall Plan and is willing to do this without waiting for an agreement with the Russians or for the establishment of a democratic régime. His hopes for the revival of "free enterprise" in Europe seem overly sanguine.
