(AP)-- Sen. George (D-Ga) said today he will try to cut about $2 billion out of President Truman's foreign aid program wnen the bill reaches the Senate next week. This is twice the reduction voted by the House. Last night a coalition of Republicans and Southern Democrats in the House amputated $1,001,250.000 from the $8 billion ,, _ , , measure. As it now stands, the bill would make a $7,498,750,000 contribution in military and economic aid to nations allied with the U n i t e d States in fighting Communism. George, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said he wants to end all economic aid for European nations "because we promised to bring the Marshall Plan to a close and we should keep our promise." Tims his campaign appeared to be directed mainly at the economic aid phase of the program, for which Mr. Truman asked $2.2 billion. The rest of the itfiry aid aircraft, tanks.

Adequate Grounds He said this alone "would have been adequate grounds for his recall because the record of the hearings shows that beyond doubt his ultimatum greatly embarrassed the President, who at that time was seeking ,to carry out negotiations within the United Nations for an agreement among our Allies on terms and conditions which should be offered as a basis of a turce in Korea."

But prospects of the Senate restoring any of the cuts made by the House grew dimmer. Chairman Connally CD- Texas) of the Senate Foreign Relations .Committee has expressed the belief that sizeable reductions are inevitable. George said he is not impressed with the argument that most of the economic aid requested is to shift European industry from civilian to defense production, "When people agree to give away money by the billions, they can make up their minds- to almost any argument," he said. George added he had l i t t l e sympathy for military aid to South American nations, saying "it is nothing but a grant" Taft, who heads the Senate Republican Policy Committee, told reporters he might be agreeable to a compromise .under which 20 percent of military and economic funds would be Interchangeable. In voting yesterday's cuts, the House whacked $690 million off economic aid for Europe. Sen. Kefauver (D-Tenn) called these reductions "too great" although he said some economies might be made.

After tonight's meeting, Stokes said tlie big obstacle was an Iran,an "neurosis" -- fear of British nfluence in the country if Britons remain «ven as oil field managers under Iranian supervision. Although the Iranian team strongly criticized several points of his plan, Stokes said, they did not reject it outright in the informal, unrecorded discussion.

Because the farmer's products may go into interstate commerce, the wholesaler is also considered in Interstate commerce.
