FRIDAY, AUG. 28, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGB TRK. Spanish, U.S. Accord Still Held Up 18-Month Effort Stymied by Two Issues , By CARL HARTMAN WASHINGTON W>—Stubborn bar gaining between the United State and Generalissimo Franco's Spair appeared today to be still holding up full agreement after nearly li months of talks on obtaining usi of Spanish bases in return for U.S aid. Among the Issues remaining, au thorltatlve sources say. are contro of Spanish base facilities and the Way in which U. S. aid funds woul' be used In strengthening them. MaJ. Gen. August Kissner of the TJ. S. Air Force head of the nego tiation mission to Madrid, is back In Washington this week reporting on progress. He has not been available to re porters. Despite the secrecy prevailing elnce the start of negotiations, 11 has become known that arrange ments tentatively agreed on follow these lines: 3 Main Facts There would be three main pacts —one on economic aid, another on military aid and the third on the use by the United States of Spanish bases. The agreement on the bases is expected to give the U. S. Air Force use of the Barajas Airporl at Madrid and several others, probably including those at Barcelona and Seville. The U. S. Navy has been seeking the use of bases al Cartagena in the Mediterranean, .£ Cadiz near the Straits of Gibraltar ™ and El Ferrol near the northwest tip of 'Spain. It Is understood that the bases would continue to be Spanish property, as 0. S. bases in Morocco continue to be French owned, but the extent of Tj. S. control is still being discussed. The military aid pact would provide for spending about 132 million dollars on modernizing Spain's out-of-date military equipment. Railroads, roads and other communications are among Spain's chief needs, in American eyes, if it is to become a strong ally. These are the items on which the United States wants aid money specified in the tentative agreements to be spent. (Continued from Page 1) | the United States had no objections " to India personally. He contended that the U.N. representatives should be restricted to countries who actually took part In the fighting. The fight over India caused a wide rift among the Western Allies, however, and generated plenty of heat among the Asian and Arab countries against the United States, issue — whether the peace confer- The political committee gave a ence should be a roundtable affair, decisive answer to another major including a number of neutrals, or whether It should be limited Ho 'two teuns of belligerents. The United States advocated the two-sided conference while Russia pressed for a wide representation of non-belligerents. The United States won by a substantial majority, although some countries thought this view should have been modified to include India.

The determined effort to reduce expenses and brlngr the budget into balance Is bearing fruit. A balanced budget means we can begin to look forward to a de crease In taxes and that will be stimulant to prosperity." Chairman Taber (R-NY) of tin House Appropriations Committee a strong wielder of the economy ax, said he hoped the deficit could be held to three billion dollars Eisenhower's recent economy or der, he added, "has aroused the department heads to a sense responsibility that they didn't have before." Rep. Cannon (Mo), senior Democrat on the Appropriations Committee, said "it is a very hopefu situation." He added the new budget proves Humphrey was "utterly mistaken" In his unsuccessful effort in the closing days of Congress to get the debt limit raised from 275 billion to 290 billion. Sen. George (Qa), senior Derm> crat on the Finance Committee, said there is no need to raise the debt limit now or later. Despite what Humphrey called big improvements, the new budget left some king-sized headaches in the tax field. The figures assume* that individual income taxes would be cut 10 per cent on Jan. 1 and that the excess profits tax would die the same date, as scheduled under present laws. But the real problem is what to do about four-billion-dollar cuts in corporation income taxes and in some exciseor sales taxes, now set automatically for April 1. President Eisenhower already has urged that both these reductions be cancelled. The administration emphasized that the $63,200,000,000 in new appropriations by the past Congress marked the first time in years that new spending authority has been less than estimated receipts and ess than the current rate of spending. New appropriations, especially r defense, are spent over a Deriod of .several years. Truman had proposed almost 13 billions in new appropriations this year. Congress appropriated 80 bilMons in 1952. Humphrey estimated the end of he Korean War Saved one billion dollars in the spending budget for .his year, but that figure would be offset in part by such items as aid 'or South Korean reconstruction. The other savings, he said, are he combined result of congressional action on appropriations and economies by the administration. Humphrey stressed that spend- ng by U. S. armed services, al- hough almost four billion dollars under the Truman program, still would provide "an adequate pos- ure of defense."
