Page 10 $7.6 Billion Foreign Aid Allocation Asked By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) — President Truman asked a critical.Republi- can Congress today for an Increase of more than a billion dollars in foreign military and economic aid. Our allies need that much, he laid, to meet "certain critical de- iciencles" In equipment for their ifmed forces. Truman proposed that Congress rote $7,600,000.000 in foreign aid :al year,. which begins next July That would be an Increase of )r the current, year. Actual foreign aid spending In le new fiscal yenr was budgeted" t . $7.861,000,000 compared with $6,035,000,000 this year and $6 268000,000 in Ihe 12 months ended last June 30. ^ A recent Associated Press survey showed that a large majority of Congress members willing to ake a stand were in favor of cutting foreign spending, although some defended It as '-a most economical way to build this nation's defenses against Soviet power. • Since the budget proposed by Truman covers a period after the Eisenhower administration will have taken over, Ihe attitude of (lie new Republican President .will have a great Influence on what Congress actually votes. In his budget message the outgoing President told Congress, with respect to American help lo Allied and friendly nations: I. The U. S. has shipped more lhan three billion dollars worth of weapons and military equipment to Its lilies under the two jear old mutual security program, includ- iiid 17,230 tanks, 432 naval vessels and 2,673 aircimli- %s v _ w, ^.r.TUrouiilj"jafcrir: T utua!

European nations have more than .doubled, their defense expcn- dltures since the Korean War started, but they still require U. S. assistance "lo provide the crucial margin of resources" needed for their military buildup. 4. The U. S. .contracted for 621 million dollars worth of weapons In Europe during Ihc 12 .months ended last June 30' and Is doubling the amount of such "offshore procurement" in Hie present fiscal year. Truman said an Important etlecl of this, by promoting plant expansion, Is to increase Western Europe's capacity .to produce Us own weapons. 5. Prance, Britain and some other Allied countries continue to need economic aid— that is, dollar grants— to enable them to support their defense programs. 6. The size of future American aid programs "will depend on the success of efforts to Increase (he level of U. S. Imporls and U. S. private and public investment abroad. " The 'Truman administration has long advocated cutting tariffs to .open American markets more freely to foreign goods. The retiring President also recommended Increasing funds for U. S. foreign - propaganda and information programs lo a total ot 135 million dollars In (he next fiscal year. State Department officials said the department has had $95,700,000 for such work in the present fiscal year.

Truman recommended appropriations for federal agricultural programs thai' would permit spending of $1,827,000,000 during Ihe coming fiscal year, or a decrease of 116 million dollars from this year's level. This reduction would largely reflect a smaller outlay on price-support crop loans. Somewhat smaller crops are expected. To Continue Firm Aid The net effect of his recommendations would be to continue most farm - aid, agricultural research, regulatory and extension programs next year at Just about what they have been this year.

The budget message Truman sent Congress today, 11 days before he leaves office. Is subject to revision by the incoming Elsen- hower administration, which has indicated It will be scrutinized closely and revised, probably starting In April. As is customary, the President sent the 20,000-word message lo Congress, and did not read It to the legislators himself. It was about 10,000 words shorter than last year's. The budget called for expenditures In fiscal 1954 equal to $489.15 for every man, woman and Bhitd the Census Bureau estimates will be in the United States on Jan. 1, 1954, half way through tha 12- monlh budget period. No Tax Increase Proposal! The President said 73 cents out of every dollar In the .budget would go toward programs directly rc- !- lated lo national security, and 14 cents more toward paying for past wars. The President made no proposals for increased taxes. But he told a Republican Congress whose leaders have been talking wistfully ot a tax cut: "I do wish to make it clear lhat In my Judgment It would not ba wise to plan for a large budget deficit during a period when business activity, civilian employment, and national Income are reaching unprecedented heights."
