Wiley's proposal represented something of a retreat from his suRRestion yesterday that the President be Riven unlimited authority to shift ad from one country to another or to withhold it entirely. "Too Broad" Son, Tflft of Ohio, the Republican leader, said any such discretionary authority would be "too broiiri." Taft said he doesn't believe the Senate would flffree to unlimited presidential authority. But he said he Is willing to delegate Vo Eisenhower the decision on whether about a billion dollars in European aid should be withheld until Western European countries ratify the : European Defense Community treaties for formation of a unified army. •, The House has voted to tie down ; such aid until the treaties arc approved by France, Italy and Ihree other nations, and Senator Russell said he rather ilkes the House provision. "I think we wailed loner enough on the formation of Western European army and ft is about time to take some drastic action," he said, No Objection Russell said he wouldn't object lo Rivinff Eisenhower authority to transfer up to 20 pp,r cent of any country's allocation to another area hut thought it would be "going pretty far" to give the President unlimited authority in that respect, As written, the Senate bill would permit transfer ol up to 10 per cent from one country to another. Chairman Bridges (R-NY) of the Senate Appropriations Committee said it would take some strong arguments to persuade his group to raise this limll&Uon. "Congress never has been willing to put more than 10 per cent in that category In the past," Bridges said. George B. White Succumbs at 60 Services for George B.
