WASHINGTON 1*1 — Administration leaders opened an attack today to restore some of 11,131,400,000 th« Hous« cut out of President Truman's foreign aid program for next year. The evident hope waa th»l the Senate would go easier with the pruning knife. Overtones of the presidential campaign were obvious as the House chopped the big aid bill from the »7,000.000.000 Truman asked to 16,182,600,000 before approving It last night. The roll call vote on passage was 245 lo Ho. Two floor cuts, sponsored by backers of Sen. Taft (R-Ohio), lopped 126'/i million dollars from economic aid for Europe and the Tar East. The House also approved slashes ol 11.010.900,000 in European economic anrt military assistance made previously by the Foreign Affairs Committee. Reductions Overridden The Taft backers overrode (he more moderate reductions pro- nosed by supporters of Cien. Dwlght D. Elsenhower, the senator's main opponent for the Republican presidential nomination and retiring commander of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) forces. Speaker Rayburn made one of his rare speeches In' the closing debate to declare that "every time we reduce the defense program ol our allies, by so much we reduce our security." He said Russia now has taken air superiority from the United States. "This is not an election year in Russia," he said. Mutual Security Administrator W. Averell Harrlman, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, said the House had We installed the flooring in REDDY KILOWATT'S new Electric Home! - 111! We're prowl to have bad thr opportunity of Installing (be flooring; in Kecldy Kilowitll's Klsclric Mnino. TiU-Tov :isphall lilc was used in Ihe den iml Klor-Kver plastic inlaid linoleum covers the kitchen. V/.T. SHELTON "taken upon itself to undermine the' Idea of mutual security." Handicap for Achefion He Implied that the vote would handicap Secretary of State Acheson In his efforts to negotiate a final contractual agreement with West Germany. Acheson Is now in Bonn, Germany, for that purpose. W. John Kenney, deputy director of the Mutual Security Administration, said the vote will mean "the loss of European divisions, aircraft squadrons and naval units which wa cannot afford to lose." Kenney called a news conference today to elaborate. His remarks were expected to be beamed at senators' ears. The House measure now goes to the Senate which will resume debate Monday on its own $0,800.000000 foreign aid program. Proposals already have been made lor cuts ranging from half a billion to one billion dollars more. Differences In trie House and Senate bills must be ironed out later in a conference meeting. In both measures, (he sums are only authorized for Ihe fiscal year start- inn July 1. The actual appropriations svill be made later. Democratic absenteeism and support by a bloc of Southern Democrats gave the Republicans temporary control of the House during critical voting yesterday and Wednesday. These were the main issues: A floor cut of J61S.300.000 In economic aid to 11 European nations, passed by a 221 to 131 roll call vote. This was added to 5181,900,000 trimmed by the committee. The reductions left 51.022, 000.000 for the program, called "defense support" because It is designed primarily to simulate European war production.
