ARBOGAST WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican drive to cut a* much as 10 billion dollars from new appropriations for fiscal year 1954 was near the billion dollar mark today, with two annual money bills cleared by the House. The second departmental appropriation measure skimmed through yesterday, to be followed later this week by House action on another budget measure to finance the State, Justice and Commerce Departments. None of the bills has been acted on by the Senate, which could, of course, restore some of the cuts or trim even .deeper.

Goal J10 Million In both cases, the House sustained generally the money recommendation of its appropriations committee. This committee, headed bj Chairman Taber (R-NY), has set an informal goal of 10 billions to trim from the Truman appropriation requests. The House added $1,267,104 to the funds recommended by the committee for the Interior Department. Of this, $1,217,104 was to continue operation of the synthetic fuel plant at Rifle, Colo., and 550,000 was for the Southeastern Power Administration. All other attempts to boost fund: were knocked down by almost solid Republican opposition. Obituaries REDS Soybeans May July , Sept.
