' Bach Evening for 33 Centa Per Week / C C#pb/'l'' Rules Group Clears Rights Bill for House Action* Senate Group Votes Increase In Foreign Aid Appropriations Committee Approves $500,900,000 of Sum Cut by House WASHINGTON W> — The Senate Appropriations Committee voted Monday to restore $500,900,000 of the $809,650,000 which the House slashed from President Eisenhower's foreign aid money bill. The committee voted 14-7 to recommend to the Senate $3,025,660,000 in new funds. It also approved the reappropriation of $667,050,000 in carryover funds for a total of $3,692,710,000. By the same vote, the committee rejected a motion by Sen. Ellender (D-Lai to hold new funds for military aid to the billion allowed by the House. Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon Johnson said earlier he would support a boost in aid funds of about half a billion dollars. The Texas Democrat made this announcement after an hour-long breakfast meeting with President Eisenhower. It was the first time they met privately with no others present. Johnson said he told the President he was prepared to support "a substantial increase" over the 2 *1 billion dollars in new aid money voted by the House. About Half Billion Asked to elaborate on the amount he would support, Johnson told newsmen it would be "in the neighborhood of a half billion dollars" above the House figure. He said the President is "very much concerned" with getting adequate funds for the mutual se- curty program, and added: "I've been concerned about it for some time." Eisenhower has voiced hope the Senate will vote the full $3,367,000,000 provided in the authorization bill passed previously by both houses. The President likewise has said he hopes senators will make the best deal they can in reaching agreement with the House on a final figure. Fixe* Ceilings The authorization measure merely fixed spending ceilings for the aid program. Actual appropriations now are being considered by the Senate. Eisenhower accompanied Johnson to the door of the White House's north portico after their steak breakfast. Newsmen thought they heard the President tell his i guest: "Thanks a million." i Dedham Man Missing; Find Car in Kansas City A widespread search.was under j his wife at Dedham.
