Senate Approves Foreign Aid Bill WASHINGTON (UPI) — The enate has passed a $3.24 billion oreign aid bill, but its contro- /ersial provision to end the pres- nt aid program in 1967 is in eopardy. Senators voted 68 to 20 Monday ight to approve the unusual two ear, $3.24 billion a year author- nation bill calling for a complete verhaul of the nation's econom- c and military assistance programs in two years. The measure was headecl for House-Senate conference committee. There was no indication lat House members, who al- eady have passed a one year, $3.37 billion bill without the cut- ff provision, would accept the enate plan. Before the across-the-board 200 million cut was voted Fri- ay, the Senate bill contained 2.27 billion in economic and ichnical aid and $1.17 billion in military aid.

Final passage of the Senate ill came after seven days of ebate in which members made $200 million across-the-board ut in President Johnson's re- uests.

Conservative Group— Feel Barry's New Outfit Can Serve By WILLIAM THEIS WASHINGTON (UPI) - The lairman of the Senate GOP ampaign Committee said to- ay Barry M. Goldwater's new onservative political organiza- on "can serve a useful pur- ose"—if it sticks to its avowed urpose. Sen. Thruston B. Morton, Ky., r ho has the task of electing republican senators next year, old UPI in an interview: "I'm sure Barry is trying his est to prevent further splintering among conservatives and in ur party. I've had terrific cooperation from him." The 1964 GOP presidential nominee is expected to be honorary chairman of the new organization, to be called the Free Society Association, with headquarters hi Washington. Denison Kitchefl, Goldwater's 1964 campaign manager, will head the organization. But key Republicans—liberals and middle-of-the-roaders — want to see just how the FSA spells out its aims before say- tag too much about it. Goldwater has called a news conference for 2:30 p.m. EDT Thursday, the expected kickoff for the new organization.

He denied it would be a third party, and said it would "serve as an educational vehicle for the Republican party." Morton, who heard Goldwater talk about the conservative group on a television program, told UPI: "If it is — as I understood Barry to explain it — not to siphon money away from the Republican party, not to supersede the party itself, and not to get into political campaigns but just to expound ideas, then it can serve a useful purpose and not be negative."

OUT OF CONTROL STOCKHOLM (UPI) — An anti - American demonstration lared out of control Monday night in Stockholm's Haymarket Square. Four persons were arrested and a police officer was bitten on the leg. The demonstrators were protesting U. S. policies in Viet Nam. week to talk' about the riches of the sea and how to get at them. They are attending a four- day conference on ocean science and engineering sponsored by the Marine Technology Society and the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography. Mankind already is harvesting the.sea and seabottom for food, diamonds, oil, iron, coal, sulfur, phosphates, gold, platinum, lime, potash salt magnesium, bromine, tin, sand, gravel, and much else. But he has barely sounded the subsurface, so to speak. All the marine mineral wealth he has gleaned so far has come from operations clbse to coasts. The greatest treasures await man on seabottoms farther from shore and farther beneath the surface. The floor of all three major oceans is littered for example, with nodules of manganese in which are mixed appreciable amounts of nickel, cobalt, and copper. One expert estimated there is enough of these valuable metals in the ocean beds to satisfy man's needs for thousands of years at the current rate of consumption. The lovely thing is that they are increasing hi quantity faster than man could expect to use them. AIR- CONDITION IP I 09 MONTH G. E.
