Tlie bill that cleared the 8enate after two consecutive 12-hour sessions merely authorized the aid. Congress must put up the money later after the Senate-House differences are adjusted. Senator Schoeppel (R-Kan) told reporter today that the multibillion dollar tax increase must get through Congress before the foreign funds are voted. "The tax bill, piling staggering burdens on top of a tax load already too heavy, will bring an even stronger fight for economy on foreign aid than we have seen on the authorization bill," he warned. Schoeppel was among five Republicans who shouted "no" last night on final passage. Others were Senators Capehart (Ind>, Ecton (Mont> Kem (Mo) and Langer (ND). Most of the funds under both the Senate and House bill would go fo arms, airplanes, tanks and othe military aid items. The Senate earmarked 55,976,000.000 for such spending, and $1,310,250,. 000 for economic aid. Much of thi would, go for building plants, fac lories and other facilities for de tense production overseas. Europe, where Gen. Dwight D.
