WASHINGTON (AC) — Scnale Republican lender F.verelt M. Dirksen of Illinois predicted today the Senate, i may siiMlain n $. r >Sr>-milllioM foreign aid I'lil, voted li,v llw House, a sliirfh President, Kennedy culled "sliort-siirlitcd, ' irresponsilile and daiitferon.sly pai'l isiin." j Kennedy spoke old. grimly at a s.p<vial While House j IIOWH conference Friday .shortly al'ler a coalition of House j Republicans and conserva.live l)eiim<Tal,H rolled up a 'JlJ'J- ,188 vote l.o slice 1ha( amount out <»f what had lieeu i\ $•!.!billion anlhori/alion measure. The House. l;hc>n quickly passed the bill on a 2'.M-IH!5 : vote and sent il, to t;ho Senate with a $M.r>-bil|joii eeilinjr. This \v»i.s $1 billion short of I ho amount Keitnody requested. Plioto A, wheat growers' official predicted today that there would be little open opposition to changes in the grain standards proposed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. "Fact is that there is little that one can say in defense of the present standards," Howard W. Hardy, president of the Great Plains Wheat, Inc., stated. "Tho standards under which we are operating today were largely formulated 50 years ago. In those days, prior to World War I, binders and headers cut the wheat and left it on the ground for periods extending ,up to several weeks before it was hauled to the threshing machine. Modern concrete and steel storage bins were non-existent. "Despite vast and sweeping changes in h.irvestinf!, storing and inarl'.i'firi^ our products, the grain st.mdaida have largely stood still. No one has taken the leadership in bringing about necessary changes to reflect the new set of conditions." Hardy po'ined out that the present .standards permit genc". 1 - ous allowances for cleanliness, purity and damage. "These tolerances can run up to ITS per «nt for the No. 1 grade, and 1.V9 per cent for the No. 'i grade " Hardy explained. "SueU iilkiWiiii ci itii^lil U a v o I been practical 50 years ago, but they ai'e out of step with today's realities." The U.S. Department of Agriculture has proposed to narrow the tolerjirice, and has announced that it will-hold hearings on the pi'ono.scd t-tandards in October. Chief justification for nar rowing the grading tolerances, according to Hardy, is the benefits to be gained in the export j market. Domestic millers pay lit; tie attention to the grain standards in purcha.'-ing their supplies. However, the foreign buyer! | must use the fiain standards in! ! buying wheat from the United j States, and has little way of estimating vholl'fM the tolerances for the wheat he is buying will fall into the lower end of the ( range, in the' middle 1 , or in the j upper rangr-s. Accordingly, he ; has (liffK'i 'ly in evaluating the , amount of m.liable grain he will receive so ho can estimate the ! value ol tli ( . wheat. "In fh» meantime," Hardy add • ed, "other wheat expoi tin}.; na' lions are doiiij-; everything possi- | hie to step lip the quality and cleanliness ol Ilieir wheat ex ' ports. Canada, for oxainpl", runs ; its export wheat over cleaner:; The Canadian Wheat Hoard class .ified its export wheat as 'clean until clean.' This term means exactly that. "At u time when all other exporting nations are doing their best to support the quality of their wheat exports and to capture cash markels, we cannot afford to do less." Hardy pointed out that there has been no open criticism of the pro- osed dianges in the grain standards, "That does not mean there will be no opposition when it comes time for the hearings, however. "Whenever attempts have been made to improve the .standards in past years, there was a long parade of witnesses who based their opposition on the claim that they were looking oul for the interests of producers. These opponents, however, mostly .spoke in the. interest of the merchandiser rather than l.h ( > producer. "Whoat growers In the stales of Kansas, 'Colorado, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota are spending several hundred thousand dollars each year to expand their markets at home and abroad, but (hey are seeing these efforts almost completely offset oy obsolete standards for their pioducts. And it is time to con sidcr bow many markets we are li sinj; by n (| t being competitive in thi; international wheat trade." Fishing Derby ill Be Sunday Attention. 'younK local an/'.ler.s.

Dlrksen said in nil Interview the temper of the country is such that, lie thinks (he Senate may sustain (ho cut. "Tho overriding thing behind I he House's action is that we have been giving assistance ol' nome kind for I!) years at an investment of more than $HH) billion and tbe country | s gelling fed up on foreign aid," the Illinois senator said.
