WF/—Administration leaders driving for congressional adjournment, sought House approval today for an $3,299,255,006 foreign-aid money bill and a S4-440.559.420 military construction measure. But a big obstacle to quick action loomed in the. form of a Republican demand that the foreign- aid funds be cut to around $7,000,000,000. Wlih the Senate Appropriarioai Committee ape-ratine in hich gf-ar to get. both bills through that branch, House leaders were determined to drive the two measures through the Home at today's session H it takes all night. They called the Hotu-c into .session two hour. 1 ; earlier than usual. 'Chcy are aiming at final adjournment of Congrcr-s by the end of next week.

Without action by Congress, they would have reverted to the Treasury, Keappropriation Sought President Trurnan wanted the carryover reappropriated and originally had asked Congress to provide another $8,500,000,000. However, he scaled down his new money request to conform to the reduced amount authorized by Congress in' a separate bill. The House Appropriation* Com-1 mlltee npproved the bill shortly after the President late yesterday jigned legislation authorizing continuance of the economic and arms aid program until June 30. 19"i4 In his message ol approval, Mr. Truman noted inn', the o! j money recommended was ir*.-, tli;m he had requested but wai r* "very [substantial" contribution in the | campaign of free nations \j» build ' up themselves militarily end teo- nofnicaJly to curb communism.

Hliortly after the committee approved the bill, Talrer started lambasting it. •It's about $ 1.500,000 ,<X>0 too lieavy," he toM reporters, "ft should be trimmed to about $ nnd I will offer amendments to do that."
