(UP) -President Truman ur^ed congress today to approve his full $350.000.000 request for posl-UNRRA foreign relief as a step toward Insuring worl<i peace. "The peace of the world can only be realized when people are lice from hunger." lie said. And the United States, ho added, can help many countries reach the goal of freedom from hunger "in a few more months" if the $3SO,OTO,000 sum is authorized. His statement came as Senate and House conferees souglH to compromise their dinVrlng versions of the relief measure. The House slashed the total to $200,000.000 hut the Senate yesterday approved the full $350,000,000.
