Slate Department sources and Sen. H. Alexander Smith (R-NJ) had said President Eisenhower would submit his aid message to day. But White House press secretary James C. Hagerty said this was incorrect: ,that it probably - will go up tomorrow. Eisenhower will make a nation wide radio-television appeal lo morrow night in behalf of the program. Dulles Firal Wilnui Secretary of Stale Dulles wil, fake over Wednesday as the leadoff wilness at a series of public hearings by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Eisenhower has scaled down his original request for $4.400,000,000 by lopping 500 millions from proposed military assistance for the fiscal year starting July 1. But a special Senate committee which spent many months weighing the foreign aid program urgec him lo cut further in that fielc and make a "counlry by country' re-examination ot his requests for economic assistance. Eisenhower's program proposes a greater shift from oulrigh grants to loans in nonmilitary ait and long-range authority for al aspects ot aid abroad. A key proposal is that Congress authorize Ihe establishment of an economic development revolving fund with aulhorily to make up to SCO million dollars in long-tern low inleresl loans next year for economic development, and up lo 750 millions for .each of the two succeeding years* ^. In addilion, Eisenhower is ask ing for next year 580 millions in other economic and technical aii authority, including a persona fund of 300 millions for use in his discretion to meet emergen cics. Most Is Direct Alii The military side of his reques tolals $2.800,000,000 made up o $1,900.000.000 for direct military aid to allies in guns, lanks, je fighters and olher military hard ware, and 900 millions in defcns support. Defense support, whic includes some forms of economt assistance, goes only to countries with which ihe Uniled States has defense commitments. H includes aid for building de fcnse-supporting projects such a well as other aid to keep th economies of partners stron. enough to maintain their militar; pledges of mutual defense.

Beck wag removed as an AFL-CIO vice president. By NORMAN WALKER ^yASHl^'GTOiV w - Teamsters Union President Dave Beck today again told the AFL-CIO Executive Council his suspension as a CJO- AFL officer Is a "nullity." He de- nianded that the federation drop luster charges against him. The 62-year-old Beck was called o answer a 45-page listing of. charges that he has brought the entire labor movement into disrepute. Beck, arriving promptly for the meeting, was. kept cooling his icels for half an hour before be- ng called into the meeting with i8 fellow labor leaders—all like iim presidents or former presidents of labor organizations. Gets Chance To Answer The purpose of the meeting was to give Beck an opportunity to answer in closed session with his ellow labor leaders the corruption charges he refused to talk about publicly before the Senate Rackets Investigating Committee. Beck invoked the Fifth Amendment more than 200 times before .he Senate committee in refusing '.a answer committee charges that le "stole" more than 5300,000 of Temasters funds. Beck has repaid the union about 5370,000 which he says he borrowed. As he went into the meeting of the AFL-CIO commillee, Beck issued a 300-word stalcmenl saying lhal his temporary suspension was illegal. Beck, 'appearing a bit more grim and serious than his usual bouncy self, went into the closed meeting at AFL-CIO headquarters accompanied by Gerard Treanor, a Teamsters Union attorney. It was indicated that if Beck gives no salisfaclory explanation, Ihe powerful AFL-CIO Executive Council will make permanent his temporary suspension as an AFL- CIO vice president and Council member. Promises To Show Up In several appearances before the Senate Rackets Investigating Committee, Beck invoked the Fifth Amendment more than 200 times to avoid telling about his complicated financial dealings with Teamsters funds. Beck had promised at least twice in advance he would show up for today's meeting wilh the Council, and indicated there might be fireworks. The pudgy Teamsters chief challenged the Council's right to suspend him. conlending the action taken last March 29 was a "nullity," and said he still had a right to his AFL-CIO Council seat. But Federation President George Meany. who presides over the Council, said the 27-man sans of two presidential candi dates—Sen. Louis Dejoie and Dan iel Fignole.
