(ARK.)' COVXm* Billions for Foreign Aid Seen by Vorys By RUSSELL BRINESm WASHINGTON W — Hop. Vorys CR-Oh!o) predicted today that President-elect Elsenhower, first supervisor of the European arms buildup, would be lucky to get 5Vi billion dollars for next year's foreign aid program. And Hep. Zablockl (D-\Vls) said President Truman's request for $7,600,000,000 might bo whittled as low as five billion dollars—a 35 per cent slash. There has been no indication of how large an amount Eisenhower will support. Last year he spoke out against proposed deep cute as fraught wllh perll.-« A Republican pledge to cut government spending, plus growlnj,' annoynace with the results of E u r o p e's rearmament drive, seemed certain to confront the foreign aid program with tough going. No action on foreign aid is expected for several weeks. The Elsenhower administration first must submit Us own budget requests, and many Republicans expect the GOP budget to cull for smaller foreign aid appropriatons. Congress appropriated a little over six billion dollars for the fiscal year ending next June 30; Truman had asked for $7,000,000,000. The year Before, Congress approved $7,300.000,000. Vorys, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told a reporter an effort would be mada this year to eliminate almost all purely economic assistance, to cut Point Four technical assistance funds "to the bone" and to reduce arms aid appropriations, Vorys, who led -the successful House fight for reductions last year, predicted, a cut of at least two billion dollars In Truman's figures. Zablockl, also a member of the -foreign affairs committee, to!d a reporter the final figure "might be closer to live billion." "Congress Is getting^tired of the way the Europeans are dragging (heir feet," Vorys said. He referred specifically to political developments In France and West Germany which apparently have reduced the chances of forming an International European army to Include German troops. Military aid so far has been criticized less than economic and otclaasuslLy. laet schl cnsnc.snta technical assistance outlays. Last year, howevor, a 25 per cent cut was made in military funds for Europe; 22 per cent for the Far East nnd IB per cent for the Middle East. Vorys said further European delay In forming an International army might lead to heavier slashes in (he mllKary budget.
