PAGE TBM (AKK.) COUWHR XSWg MONDAY, JULY 88, 19SI Congress Works on Another Stop-Gap Bill to Keep Uncle Sam in Business WASHINGTON, July 30. (fl 1 ) — Congress began today to work on another stop-gap bill to keep the government in business alter tomorrow midnight. The Hoi ise Appropria tio us Coin - mittee met in special session (10:30 a.m. ESI') to draft a measure clu- aigned to finance every federal a- gonc-r /or 60 more days starting Aug. 1. The agencies have been oil- crating this month on an emergency bas*ii outlined by Congress when the new fiscal year started July 1 without a single appropriation bill on the president's desk. The proposed length of the stopgap measure, 60 days, was an indication Hint congressional leaders ara not too optimistic over an early break in the congressional deadlock on money bills. The measure was carded for House passage- just as soon as the appropriations committee fends it to the floor. It would then go to The Senate. The new measure would provide authority for the government to £pencl during the next two months at a rate generally on tho lowest amounts voted by either the Senate or'the House Iji bills-passed but atill hung up on Capitol Hill. The earlier stop-gap plim made the name allowance. The amounts .spent will be charged against appropriations eventually approved for the present fiscal year, New Record May Be Set Should the present money stale- mat* continue beyond Sept. 6, congressional veterans claim, It would set a new record. The federal ngen- cies received their regular funds last year on Sept, G, the day a one package appropriation bill, financing all of tneni, became a law. This year Congress decided to give up the one-package approach nnd is handling each money measure separately. Stop-gap appropriation measures have become the rule ruther than the exception in recent years but In most oast year a majority of the departmental money bills have been cleared by the end of July. 'Only five of the nine regular bills passed this yonr by the House have been approved by Uie Senate. Aa quk'kly as (he Senate passes them, they go to si Senate-House conference for adjustment of differences. 2 Measures Sent Hack The firs! two measures to emerge from confidences — those tor (A) he Department of Agriculture and Fire Chief Hurt By Falling Brick EL DORADO, Ark., July 30- (fl»i— Fire Chief Frank H.

Pyongyang then gave these three points- as essential for peace in Korea; 1. Withdrawal of opposing troops from the 38th parallel. 2. Cessation of the "American military invasion."

"That IK the Trap" "That ifi the trap, that is In cleverness, and tile ready response to it in America is tragic. We should not change our whole procedure every time the Kremlin decides on some new front. That, to my mind, is distressingly serious, Because with so little effort they have accomplished so much to our great disadvantage." The single speech to which Marshall referred was Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Malik's bid for Korea truce .talks which led to the present negotiations In Kuesong. Marshall said he believes it will be "quite a period of time" before the "real intention" of the Soviets U evident. Until that time, he said, America must be "determined, implacably determined, to get ourselves In such a strong position that the Kremlin will not dare up- the peace of the world." WASHINGTON, July #>, OP) — i Senators contending the "proposed 3,500,000,000 foreign aid program Is H-imarlly a military, rather than a foreign relations matter, won a wtnt today. The senate foreign relations com- ulttee bowed to demands from the nncd services committee a n U agreed to let the latter group act twnlly with it on the measure. The decision was taken over the •pnosltlon of Chairman Connally D-Tex) of the foreign relations group who reportedly voiced pro- "csts in salty language at a closed neeting. More than a tiff over senatorial irerogatives is involved. There Is a nove under way to deny Secretary of State Ache.son the policy di- ectton over how the $8,500.000,000 s distributed. Some senators contend that mil- tnry officials, rather than Acheson, should have the top authority over distribution of arms aid. Joining In that drive, Senator Byrd <D-Va) told a reporter today hat he believes military men ought to have the final word on the dispatch of weapons to North Atlantic :iefense partners. Byrd sold he was considering of- gram. Under the administration's plan Acheson would be given over-all policy direction of the program, which includes $6.300,000,000 in military assistance, along with $2,200,000,000 in economic aid. Chairman Taft (R-Ohiol scheduled a Republican policy committee meeting to discuss moves to deny authority to Acheson.

(/P| — Secretary of Defense Marshall is digging into the who's and why's of a controversial Korean war statement, Issued at the Pentagon apparently without top level clearance. The statement, read to reporters at a new.s briefing last Friday, suggested the Communists could be using cease-fire talks for gaining time to build up their forces and to set a military trap. Coming at the height of Korean cease fire talks, it Jolted top Pentagon officials who promptly toot the 'official" label oft the statement and said they knew nothing of its origin. A department spokesman said vc.sterday that Marshall and Deputy Defence Secretary Robert llovett said today. The gir!. tall blonde Claira Mary Gertrude Young of (6241 N.
