(AP) — About 60 countries and dependent areas want to share In the "Point Pour program of U.S. help provided for In the foreign aid authorization yj^ow passed by Congress. State Department officials reported this today, following the Senate's 41 to 27 vote of approval for the $3.120.550,000 aid bill. The vote, late yesterday, gave President Truman his first major victory of the year In Hie field of foreign policy. Republican Senate leaders fought unsuccessfully to block final action on the^bill with an attack on the $35,000,000 Point Pour plan to benefit backward areas of the world with American Technical aid. Senate Votes Acceptance The Senate voted to accept a Senate-House conference agreement on the foreign aid measure. This action sent, the authorization bill to the White House for Mr. Truman's expected signature. Congress must still act on an appropriations bill supplying the money. In this connection, the Economic Cooperation Administration (ECA), which administer? the aid program, reported it would have $277,000.000 left over from the current fiscal year ending June 30. This is $127.OTO,Ot)0 more than ha:l been previously estimated as a carryover. GOP io Continue Fight ,The Senate Republicans let it be known they will carry on their fight against the Point Pour program, so- called from its position in Mr. 'Tru- fi's inaugural address, tate Department officials who I of the 60 requests for Point Four aid noted that the cost of meeting al of them would be several times the $35,000,000 Congress authorized. The department is planning for a prompt start. Assuming the necessary actual appropriation will be voted by June 30, officials said the first project should be under way by the end of the summer. Included probably will be an attack on a malaria-infested area in the Middle East or Southeast Asia through a big scale DDT spraying campaign. Only the most feasible of the requests already submitted can be put into effect at the outset, officials said. In the meantime applicant countries will be asked for further details. . Surrey Considered The dispatch of a survey mission to the.Middle East is p under consideration to fill in gaps of infor- ' about that area, nator Millikin (R-Colo) and itor Wherry (R-Neb> said GOP lawmakers will try to cut the Point Four program when the foreign aid bill comes before the appropriations committee. They and Senator Taft (R-Ohio) •rgued that the.language of the Point Four plan would\open tiie. way for another huge recovery program after the Marshall plan ends in 1952. Wording Was a Promise They also said the wording was a promise that this government would guarantee the overseas investments of American businessmen.
