Otto Passman for years has been a major obstacle for foreign aid measures. Now he is sharpening his ax for new aid proposals sent to Congress by President Kenndey—"My friend John." In this exclusive interview by Stanley Meisler, Passman tells of his simple philosophy on foreign aid. By STANLEY MEISLER WASHINGTON (AP)-Rep. Otto Passman, D-La., said today he finally feels vindicated in his long battle against foreign aid—"but vindicated in words, not in action." So he still will wield his ax when President Kennedy's $4.5 billion foreign aid bill comes his way. For nine years, the ax of this dapper, jocular 62-year-old businessman from Monroe, La., has been a major obstacle for any foreign aid bill trying to wend its way through Capitol Hill. No bill has emerged unscathed. Passman derives his power from his position as chairman of the House Appropriations subcommittee on foreign operations. He derives his distaste for foreign aid from a simple philosophy. "Head to a bar tonight and watch some people drinking cocktails," he said in an interview. "Then watch the drama that unfolds each time the waiter brings the check. Everyone grabs for it. We are a nation of check grabbers. "Everyone is," he continued. "I am, too, although my arm gets shorter as I grow older. We think we accomplish something if we grab the check. That's what we do as a nation—grab checks all over the world. We think we are going good. And we're wrong." Passman's new sense of vindication comes from the spurt of criticism that has buffeted foreign aid in recent weeks—the gloomy report on aid to Southeast Asia by Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield of Montana and three other senators, the critical analysis of foreign aid by the special committee headed by Gen. Lucius D. Clay, the incorporation of some Clay Committee criticisms into President Kennedy's foreign aid message to Congress Tuesday. But, to Passman despite the feeling of vindication, these criticisms are words, words, words, while he is interested in cuts, cuts, cuts. Passman believes his nine-year battle against foreign aid has been misrepresented by the press, radio television and the State Department. "They have accused me of trying to wipe out the whole program," he said. "That's not true. I have been trying to contain it. I have been trying to help the executive department manage a program that is uncontrolled and uncontrollable." But, in the next breath, Pass- man acknowledges that he actual- y is against the whole idea of oreign aid. While he sees his as- igned role in Congress as the man who must prune and slice the •rogram, he personally would pre- er to have no program at all. "Let's look at the Alliance for Progress," he said. "We are not accomplishing a thing. Have you ever seen an exiled Latin-American leader who was poor? Even 90™ CONSECUTIVE DIVIDEND MUTUAL, INC.

Without this, foreign aid simply fills up coffers that keep on emptying. "But, even if these countries had reforms and their leaders were not corrupt, I would be against the Alliance for Progress. These countries don't need aid. They need trade and private ill*' vestment." ', Common sense, according to Passman, tells him: (1) Foreign aid won't work: it's wasteful and earns resentment instead of friendship and (2) Foreign aid hurts the American economy: it gives away American wealth and diminishes the U.S. supply of gold.
