By .TAMES BIABLOW .Assocliitert Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (APJ -- It has happened so many limes it's like a ritual in a bargain basement. The President 'asks more money for .foreign aid than anybody, probably including himself, thinks he'll get. The immediate reaction iji Congress is a kind ol horror at the lliought of shoveling out all that money to foreigners again.' Since the war the United States lias provided more than S100 billion in economic and military aid to 111 countries. After this annual shock Congress finally votes more foreign aid than it seemed willing to do but always less than the President asked. Tuesday the House began its yearly debale: how much money Ihis time? There will be many weeks of shuffling before the final decision, That's why President Kennedy's opening s t a t e m e n t at his news conference was a rather muffled cry of anguish. He urged Congress to be careful with Ihe scissors. Me will have more to say later if Congress gets too frisky. This vear Kennedv frustrated ·business, something extraordinary happened. A special 10-man committee-headed by Gen. Lucius D. Clay-which Kennedy had appointed to investigate operations of the foreign . aid program 'came out for foreign aid all right--but not with the price tag Kennedy had put on it. The committee said--or seemed lo say, lor there was a lot of confusion about this when the committee reported last -March 2-1 -- that about 5500 million should billion b e - t r i m m e d off t h e S-1.9 Kennedy had asked. On April 2, Kennedy sent a special message lo Congress on foreign aid. chopping almost 5500 million off his original request, which is what the Clay committee had seemed lo suggest. On Aug. 6 the Mouse Foreign Affairs Committee went Kennedy one better. It suggested Congress should authorize no more thaji S4.1 billion for foreign aid, ot 1 SSOO million less than Kennedy had originally said was needed'. That figure was the starting point when the House began considering the maltor this week. But the inclination of some House members will be lo show even --he had broksn his shoulder the day. before--and told colleagues: "Even though I'm in pain, I question whether I am as in as much pain as the 187 million Americans who have to foot the bill for this." He has long considered foreign aid "fouled up and uncontrollable." In 1952 Kennedy asked S4.9 billion. Congress appropriated about SI billion less even though, in the midst of Die slashing, Kennedy protested against cutting "the hoan out of the program." In 19G1 Kennedy sought S-1.8 billion. Congress voted about SSOO million less even though, in the midst o: the slicing and slitting, Kennedy cried out against a decapitated program that would be "too little and too late." Mothers Win Fight Over Child Care MIDWEST CITY (AP)--A band of 30 sign-carrying Midwest City mothers won the first skirmish Tuesday night in their battle against a city ordinance banning operation of child-care centers in residences. .The City Council agreed to eon- sider next Tuesday an amendment which would remove the restriction. The council held a hurriedly- called session after the mothers picketed city hall protesting the arrests of two women who operate nurseries in their homes.
