Congress Given China Aid Issue Demand for Military Help for Nationalists Gets GOP Backing WASHINGTON, D«. 13, '.«V-A demand for military aid to Nationalist China was turned over to the 82nd Congress today with the public backing of 34 Senate Republicans and four Democrats. Senator Knowland (R-Calif), who failed to get the Senate to earmark 53B,000.000 in such aid yesterday; told a reporter he will try again when the new Congress convenes next month. At that time, the Republicans will have 47 Senators on their side of the aisle, instead of the 43 who now sit there. Taking this into account, Knowland said; "If the administration hasn't completely lost touch with realities It will realize that the new Congress taking over ir\ three veeks Is likely to reverse the close vole, of yesterday. I hope that before then something concrete will be done to encourage the'Chinese Nationalists," Fulhris-M Objects However. Senator Fulbright (D- Ark) , contendedi that any outright military aid to the Nationalists now might plunge this country Into full- scale war with China. . Knowland tried to amend » bill providing food aid to Yugoslavia to require that an equal amount be spent on military assistance for" the Chinese Nationalists on Formosa. Knowland's amendment' was knocked out on technical grounds and he then moved to send the Yugoslav bill back to the Foreign Relations Committee. The idea was to get a Senate vot* on hi« amendment. ... .-,->''* • r ': ,•',-; In what >as generally regarded as a test on the Issue of aiding Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists. 37 Democrats and ' five Republican' loted against Knowlanc Thirty-four Republicans Democrats supported it.
