PAGE TWELVE BL-TTHEVLLLB, (ARK.) COURIER Foreign Aid Bill to Senate This Week; Cuts Expected WASHINGTON, Aug. 31. </P) — The big foreign aid bill reaches the Senate floor this week nmld signs it will sustain or possibly even increase a^ billion-dollar cut over President l Truman's protest*. Debate U scheduled to start tomorrow. .The senate Armed Services ontf Foreign Relations Committees have reco tnme nded a $7,535,000,000 au - thorizatloxi, as compared to the $8^00,000,000 Mr. Truman asked for military and economic assistance abroad. Although the President reportedly has protested vigorously in conference with legislators, administration leaders appear re-slffned to a sizeable cut. Some Democrats have said they would support moves to Increase the authorization but none seemed ready to lead any serious fight. Senators Kefauver (D-Tcnn) and Pulbrlght (D-Ark) satd Saturday they believe the amount approved by the Senate committees !• too unall but neither had any plan to propose an Increase. Deeper Cut Requested Senator Connally <D-Tcx), on the other hand, called for deeper cuts in foreign economic aid. "We can't go on forever supporting the whole world," he said. The committees voted to cut out about $675,000,000 in economic nld and $290,000,000 in military help. Connally said he would prefer to see the military reduction restored. But If It's not restored, he said he would still favor making the economic cut an even $1,000,000.000 instead of $615,000.000. Senator Ferguson (R-Mich> proposed an additional $1 £00,000,000 cut below the figures approved by the committees.

The Cardigan Bay then led the two smaller vessels through treach- laud and air on the erous sandbanks to within few mllea of the enemy coast— as close u the frigate could go In the shallow water. Aircraft from the Glory set up a covering screen against enemy air attack. Meanwhile the cruiser Kanya, under Rear Admiral A. K. Scott-Moncrleff, screened the skies with Its radar gear.
