FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1951 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Foreign Aid Agreement Sought by Committees WASHINGTON, Oct. $19. W—A Senate-House Conference Committee sought quick agreement today on how much money the United States will spend this year in helping friendly foreign nations .. bolster their military and economic strength against the threat of Communism. A figure of $1,208,401,000 in new funds was set by the Senate yesterday. The measure was approved 67-13 after the chamber shouted down a move to restore a five per cent cut made by its appropriations committee in the $7.482,521,000 foreign aid bill approved by the House. Both bills re-appropriate $816,127.000 of unspent funds over from the previous fiscal year ti. that total outlays for fiscal 1952 could exceed $8,000,000,000. The foreign aid bill is one of • three big money measures remaining to be disposed of before Congress quits. The adjournment target is tomorrow. Then Senate starts work on one of the measures when it meets today. This is the $4.000,000,000 military construction bill, the only one of the three that has not yet passed the Senate. Sponsors of the bill hope to get It into conference with the House late in the day. The Senate appropriations committee, in reporting out this bill last night, cut out about J475.000.0CO of construction monej,' for Army. Navy j^and Air Force bases the House had ^approved. The group knocked off about 25 per cent of the funds asked by the Pentagon for Army nnd Navy bases, and 10 per cent of the amount requested for Air Force insulations. Committee Chairman McKellar (D-Tenn> said the reductions were not applied specifically to any of the approximately 500 bases covered 1 in the bill. Most of these are in ] this country, some are overseas. • I McKellar said the committee was ? directing the Defense Department \ to make economies nt all the pro! Jects. The committee left at $200.000,000 the allotment of new construction funds for the Savannah River Hydrogen Bomb Plant In South Carolina, Originally. $484,240.000 was asked for this purpose but the House cut $284,240,000, contending there would be ample funds for the present with the smaller sum.
