WASHINGTON, March 24. </T)— House members from farm areas banded together today to oppose a $1,000,000,000 cut in Marshall Plan cash funds voted by the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The foreign aid bill was called up for debate today, but House lenders saw no prospect of a final • vote before : next Tuesday. Carrying authority for J2,272,450,- 000 in new spending for the 12 months, starting next July 1, the bill Is > one-packnge wrap-up of all non-military .foreign assistance anticipated In the 1951 fiscal year. Kuropean Recovery It provides $2,100,000,000 for Eu- ropean'recovery, Including $150,000,000 carried over from this year's appropriations; $100,000,000 for Korean economic aid; $45,000,000 to start President Truman's "Point Pour." program of technical assist- ance'to backward areas; nnci $27,- iSfj.OOO'for relief of Arab refugees ill'" Palestine. The measure originally contained «n additional billion dollars for European : recovery, but the Foreign Affairs Committee chopped that off, voting to send abroad Instead U.S. farm surpluses valued at that-amount. ' Alarmed over possible effects of the cash cutback on the domestic farm price support program, farm state members got behind a proposal: to restore the money but tie It 'firmly to open-market purchase of O.S. crop surpluses. Amendment Prepared The plan was contained In an amendment to the bill prepared by Reps. Cooley (DNC) and Poage (D- Tex); Cooley is chairman of the House* Agriculture committee. !

The bill would make EGA the only U. S. .exporter he said, adding: "It- would : disrupt, private trade channels and kill normal business purchases of food and agricultural commodities in- this country." ' , Rep liope of Kansas, ranking Republican on the agriculture.'com-, rhittee,. : .told , reporters ,he "didn't think'.; miich" of the; surplus-for- eush plan.
