DID DEMOCRAT 'LEAK' INFORMATION? Budget Bureau Claims Cannon Did WASHINGTON (AP)-President Eisenhower's Budget Bureau was accused today by Rep. Clarence Cannon (D-Mo) of "leaking" I960 budget information to lobbyists. Cannon is chairman of the House Appropriations Committee which initiates budget legislation and which has not yet received details of the budget for the year starting next July 1. "Apparently," he said in an interview, "the Budget Bureau is leaking like a sieve and is providing the departments information which is being given to the lobbyists for big spending." As an example of what he meant, Cannon said he had information that school officials and some farm group leaders have been "tipped" that funds available for education and farm programs during the coming year will be cut back. "The result," he said, "is that members of Congress are receiving complaints already. The lobby ists presumably have relayed their leaked information to community leaders who in turn are complain ing to Congress." Inconsistent Cannon said it was "inconsistent for President Eisenhower to call upon Congress to be thrifty and to hold down spending while at the same time the downtown departments apparently are laying the groundwork to pressure Congress into more spending." Cannon said he intends to fine out "where the leaks came from and who is responsible for them.' He already has requested Arthur S. Flemming, secretary of health education and welfare, to determine who is responsible for "pre mature disclosure" of details of the department's school-aid- bud get. New Foreign Policies Urged by Demo Aiken WASHINGTON (AP) - SenJ George D. Aiken (R-Vt) today said Congress must help mold new foreign policies to replace those i "which have lost their glamor."' Aiken is a member of the Sen- j ate Foreign Relations Commit-1 tee, which will question Secretary | of State John Foster Dulles next' Wednesday at a closed-door brief-; ing. ! In separate -interviews, Aiken! and Sen. J. William Fulbright of; Arkansas, a senior Democratic, member, agreed that President Eisenhower's State of the Union message Friday offered no new | ideas. Demonstrates Wisdom The President's message, Aiken said, demonstrated the wisdom of the committee's decision last year to spend $300,000 in a long-time study of global relations. The committee plans to suggest policies for administration consideration. "Our foreign policy needs a new hair-do, and maybe some lipstick," Aiken told newsmen. "People are losing interest when all they get is the same old policy that we have had for the past ten years. . ." Aiken and Fulbright said they had no qilarrel with the President's generalized statement. "It recognizes problems and states them accurately," Aiken said. "What the public wants is more than a recognition, but ideas to cope with them." No Indication Chairman Theodore Francis Green (D-RI) said the message "does not give a clear indication of the direction in which the President wants to move." "There are, in this speech, no clear-cut policies, no bold view programs," Green said in a statement. Sen. Alexander Wiley of Wisconsin, ranking GOP member of the committee, said "I am not now prepared to judge relative merits or shortcomings in the President's proposals" since they were general in nature. The session with Dulles will be the first in a series of closed hearings with administration officials. The committee Tuesday will discuss hiring of outside experts to Bather information in world trouble spots.

(AP Photofax) ' PILOT STRIKE NEARS END American Readies for Air Service WASHINGTON (AP) — American Airlines prepared today to get its planes back in the air as union chiefs gathered to act on an agreement to end the big airline's 22- day pilots strike. Anticipating speedy ratification, American began recalling furloughed employes and made plans to' s resume operations Sunday. Federal mediators said although there was a chance of a hitch they didn't expect any. A settlement in principle of the dispute between American and the Air Line Pilots Assn. was announced Friday by federal mediators. Summons Committee The union promptly summoned its 24-man master executive committee to meet here today to act on the agreement. No details were announced pending agreement on specific contract language. • American's strike involved ap proximately 1,500 pilots and copilots and resulted in the furlougl ing earlier this week of some 20, 000 other employes. The chief issue was wages. Pre strike pilots' pay ranged from $40C to $1,600 a month. The new con tract was expected to boost them to a top rate of about $2,400 month for senior pilots on new je airliners which American hopes t put in service shortly. AUSTIN (Minn.)
