The administration may recommend more modest benefits and no tax increase. The session had barely started yesterday before influential Democrats served notice there is likely to be some controversy over foreign policy, particularly the administration's proposal to ask for an increase in new money for foreign aid. Rayburn told newsmen he was "not happy about our foreign' relations as things stand." Sen. Russell (D-QsO, a critic of foreign economic aid spending, blasted the State Department as being "so sterile of ideas that the only answer they have to the Russians Is to ask for more money/' Sen. H. Alexander Smith (R-NJ) replied in :a separate - interview that if . the Democrats make" "an all-out frontal attack on the foreign policies of 'President Eiseenhower and Secretary of State Dulles they will -be making a political mistake." vealers l.Off lowers-spots stronger on choice .and prime steers; load high choice.and prime around 1,100 Ib steers 22.50 which new top for week; these mates cattle at 22.25 Monday and Tuesday; scattering mostly good short feds 17.00-19.00: couple loads choice mixed yearlings 19.50-20.00; utility and commercial cows 11.00-13.00; canners and cutters 8.50-10.50; utility and commercial bulls 13.50-15.50; light canners down to 10.50; good weighty fat bulls 10.50-11.50; good and choice vealers largely 23.0029.00; few high choice and prime 30.00-33.00; commercial and good 16.00-23.00.
