ABSTRACT
Focuses on suggestions related to amendments in the lease-lend bill. Importance of a time limit on the powers delegated to chief executives of various democracies; Information that a money limit on the aid the U.S. President may extend might easily cause that aid to come to an end at the time when it was most needed, and duplicate the situation which gave rise to the present bill; Statement that the bill as it stands permits the lending or leasing of existing defense equipment; Proposal of the bill regarding the aid that should go to Great Britain only and that the U.S. President should not be permitted to aid non-specified countries suffering from aggression without further congressional action; Report that the Congress has a right to know how the powers it has delegated are being exercised; Restriction of powers of the U.S. President by a veto residing with the Chief of Staff of the army and chief of Operations of the navy.
