BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, JULY 31, 1958 Foreign Aid Compromise HOUSE May Speed Adjournment By DONALD SANDERS WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate-House agreement on the foreign aid budget early today removed one of the last remaining barriers to adjournment of Congress, but President ! h Eisenhower's delayed request for a boost in the federal debt limit clouded the picture. ] ' Administration lieutenants In the Houn foresaw no obstacle there to passage of a bill to hike th> debt ceiling by 15 billion dollars to 90 billions. But iif the Senate, there was glum talk that the session might have to be prolonged into next week. Acting Republican Leader Knowland of California said he wanted to reserve Judgment on when Congress could quit for the year. Before the debt limit request, hie had been aiming at tonight. His Democratic counterpart, Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, ypoke of postponing adjournment temporarily. A Senate-House conference committee worked until past midnight local time (11 p. m.

H includes $4,530.457.999 in new cash and $2,121,964.391 in authority to spend funds appropriated by previous Congresses and not yet obligated. The compromise is $455.734,211 above the amount originally voted by the House and $92,895,812 less than the Senate had approved early yesterday. Ten of the 13 government money bills already have gone to the White House, and two more remain n conference committees seeking o resolve Senate - House differences. One, carrying funds for the State, Commerce and Justice Departments, has been deadlocked for weeks over one issue: whether or not to provide funds for federal aid to airport construction.
