(S>) — Chairman Connally (D-Tcx.) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee announced today he would propose » $1,000,000,000 slosh In the economic aid section of the administration's $8,500,000,000 foreign aid request. "I think it will be approved by the committees," Connally told reporters after a closed-door session of the Foreign Relations and Arm•d Services Committees. This would be a deeper slash In economic funds than made by the House when It approved a $7.493,000,000 measure, after cutting the economic timcis by $711.250,000. Connally said two tentative decisions were made by the committees. One would retain administration of the "Point ftour" program for aid to underdeveloped areas within the state department. The House had voted to put this together with all other foreign aid under a proposed Senate Group Decides on Lower Personal Income Tax Hike WASHINGTON, Aug. J2. OT— The tax-writing Senate Finance Committee tentatively has decided on a personal income tax boost $412,000,000 lower than that voted by the House. The committee threw out the House revenue-boosting plan on individuals yesterday and adopted a formula of 1U own which considerably lightens the increase in the tipper income brackets. This formula would raise personal income levies by an estimated $2,435,000.000 a year compared with $2,847,000,000 in the House measure. The committee continues its closed-door reworking of the house bill today. It has yet to act on the $2,855,000,000 in corporation tax boost* voted by the house or the tikes In many excise taxes, The tentative vote was th» first (/.S.

Predictions Home Out It bore nut advance predictions if committee members that the ciinle would whittle d o w n the louse figure rather than increase , toward the $10,000.000 asked by resident Tmman to help balance he budget and hold down influ- onary pressures. The finance committee formula j would put an tickled defense tax that portion of incomes now eft after the Individual has paid )is taxes. Thus it would lilt with progres- itvely less impact in the higher jrnckets where the p'resent levy consumes a large share of. total ncome, The tentatively-adopted formula would work this way: First the taxpayer computes his ix under existing law. Then he subtracts the amount of that tax from his surtax net Income, which his income after exemptions and deductions. Then he pays as a defense In.v three per cent of what is left up to $2,000 and four per cent of the part above $2 f OOO. The House had approved a simpler formula: each taxpayer would acid 12li per cent lo the amount of tax he pays now. Delegates Return From Legion's State Convention new mutual security administration.

Senator Lodge [R-Massj said no vote was taken on hLs proposal to restore all the military lunds requested for Western Europe. The House CAIV military funds $2[>Q,UOQ f OOO when It passed the bill and Lodge wants to restore $265,000,000 ol Tor Western Europe. "False Ktunomy" "It would be the worst kind of false economy to reduce our military aid to Eur'jjiu in the lace of present world conditions," Lodge declared. H« said he also favors full military uutkiys lor Formosa and Indochina. The Home reduced the requested ^S.CCO/JOO for Asia and the Pacitio to $530,OOQ,OiH).

The House trimmed the fund to $85,000,000 and the Senate group cu t it to $63.000,000. Actually, however, the committee left in the fund the full $25,164,655 requested for the "Voice" broadcasting opera t tons, making its reductions In other information activities. Despite President Truman's appeal on Monday for restoration of the full $115,000,000 he sought in his budget, the committee voted only the smaller amount. The President )bituaries "MO."
