He didn't say he would go as far as the House did last Friday It slashed the $1,160,990,000 tagged by the administration for North Atlantic Pact partners to $580,495 000. or just half the original mount. There was speculation Hint the House's action would force the administration Into some kind ot compromise. This might take the forn: of accepting Ihe House figure Insofar as cash Is concerned and try- Ing for as much more as can be obtained In authority to enter con- Iracts which would be paid for In later appropriations. Cuts Sought Senator Vandenbcrg (R-Mtch), ranking GOP member of the Foreign Relations Committee, already lias asked that the figure for the Atlantic Pact nations -lie trimmed to an even $1,000,000,000. He also has suggested thai some of the first year's' financing be in the form of contract authorization. Senator Dulles (R-NY), another OOP foreign policy leader, has Joined Vandenacrg iti the $1,000000,000 figure. Senator George <D-Ga), a Foreign Relations member, had recommended prior to the House action that the administration, request for North Atlantic Pact members he halved. The House position also won endorsement from -wo other Southern Dejnocrats, Senators Russell (D-Gai and Byrd (D-Va). Both arc members of the Senate Armed Services Committee which Jointly is considering the program with the foregoing relations group. All this adds tip to R rough time for Foreign Relations Chairman Connnlly (D-"'cx) who has announced that he will stand pat on giving the administration what it wants when the two committees start drafting a bill tomorrow.
