lO, 155S *.*. 1 One-Two Punch — Cost And Need Of Foreign Aid Being Questioned In Congress "By IAKK (.'. YVIUSON Knited Press Slai'f Correspondent WASHINGTON iUPl — The 'Eisenhower administration foreign aid program is being' battered by the old onc-wo punch, like this: 1. It costs too much. 2. Its need and effectiveness are shrinking. Right or wrong', those are the arguments which persuaded House and Senate conferees lo clip more than SSOt) million from the President's S4.9 billion program. That is the cut agreed upon in trie legislation nuthoH/.ing' the program for the cnn'onl. fiscal year. Next comes thp hill actually to appropriates the money. The same one-two punch has persuaded the House Appropiiations committee to cut Sl.S iitlHon from the money to be 1 appropriated. Thar would givp Mr. Eisenhower no more than S3.6 billion for foreign eco- nomic and military aid if the House and Senate 'concur in the reduction The Congressional Record bulges with the foreign aid debate and with '-figures showing the cost to the taxpayer. One of the hardest hitting arguments against contin- n&ci big scale subsidy of The defense and productive economies of foreign nations has been those nations' own relative prosperity. On June 28. Sen. Russ'ell B. 1x>ng (D-ha.) placed in the record a table "to illustrate the steady increase of dollar balances on bo- half of the nations of europo." The sum in gold and II.S. dollars a European nation has salted away i.t a good indicator of its prosperity and ability to tax itself for self defense. I-iong's list embraced 12 Western "European nations which receive foreign economic and mili- tary aid. plus Iceland and Yugoslavia. The" real value of their gold and dollar reserves on Dec. 31, 193S, was fixed at 14.937 .million. By Dec. 31. 1954. the reserve total had grown to $10,488 million. As of .'June 30. 1955. it was swelled to 511.325 million. These indications of thriving economy ware offered as proof that some of the subsidized nations were capable of providing their own arms ior de-tense and that some others required less than the President would give them. Tine Council of State Chambers of Commerce has provided effective material against 'Mr. Eisenhower's S-1.9 billion spending project. A council table which found its way into the second toted up foreign aid spending for U postwar years to June 30. 1956, a£ S6S.2 'billion. Farmer's Friends- WAIT! DON'T KILL THAT WASP WASHINGTON (UP) — Don't whack that wasp: He's a good friend of the tobacco fanner. The lowly wasp, possessor of a stinger that packs a painful wallop for human beings, has strong- backing from the agricultural research service. It seems the ordinary paperhanger wasp is the. nal- itra.1 eneiny of tobacco hornworm.s, buclwwms. and. other pests that destroy toliticco plnnls. Mot only does the service want TV(isp<: to live, it also advocates construction of shelters to enable wasps to huild. up their population In tobacco areas. The shelters are necessary because wasps don't; live in tobacco fields, but rather in bordering' grass, brush, or wotxied areas. Entomologists don't know yet whether predatory wasps alone can be depended on to control hornworms and budworms. Experiments and observations indicate, however, that at least in moderate Infestations, a sizable wasp population can be a valuable asset to a tobacco farmer. Conceivably, this type of biological control could eliminate or reduce the need for applying- insecticides. This would cut down the expense of treating' tobacco fields and also mig-ht prevent the over-use of chemicals, a practice that sometimes leave:; excessive quantities of residue? on the valuable tobacco leaves. Other farm front developments: Oats—The Agriculture Department reports "that resistant oat varieties have put an extra billion dollars in gi-oweivs' pockets during' the last: 20 years at a cost of slightly more than S3 million for research. This figures out to a 51,000 return for every XX spent. REA—Rural 'Electrification Administration loans for the fiscal year just ended amounted, to $189.S million for rural electrification and $83 million for rural telephones. The 1956 rural 'telephone loans will bring- initial telephone sei"Yice to about 76.500 rural subscribers. Wheat.—The government support, price for 1957-crop wheat will be $2 a. bushel. Under the present parity price of, wheat, this reflects 82 1-2 per cent of parity. This is the same support rate President Eisenhower ordered (or 1956 crop wheat, overruling Secretary of Agriculture Ezra. T. Benson who had set the 1956 support rate at $1.83 a bushel, reflecting; 76 per cent of parity. Forests—A record tlOO million DAILYvCROSSWORD 1. 5. 9. 10. 13, U. 15. ACROSS Mince Native ot Arabia.

Department of Agriculture reported today. The figure for July 1. 1955 was 7.254,000 acres, the USD A said. However, the latest, acreage total was 20 per cent smaller than the 10-year averag-e of 8.969,000 acres. The USDA said acreage was "modei-ately" higher in northern, eastern, south-central and some. southern counties. However, smaller acreage than. reported earlier was listed for high. plains. Jow rolling- plains. Ixv.ver Rio Grande Valley, and upper coastal counties, -\vith marked decreases in the southern low 7 - oll- ing- plains and adjacent counties. The USDA said the .'luly .1 rotton outlook was one of extremes. Irrigated acreage generally promised good yields, with a good crop expected in the Tx>wer Valley. but a little below earlier excellent: prospects in some areas where water was not available. Cotton in the southern low rolling plains showed little growth. and was dying in spots, the USDA said. Prospects were reduced sharply in some southern black- lands and south-central counties. but: fair to good yields were expected in coastal counties. The USDA said moisture reserves were lacking in all areas. White In Capital To Ask For Aid to Texas Drouth the nv)mbcr of aces all Loo frequently bypass the basic question.

White said the number of counties eligible for drought disaster relief must be increased from the present 68 to include at least 30 more counties in Central, South and West Texas. He said he also will ask for immediate cash advances to fanners under the soil bank plan, a revised and extended farm credit program and a new feed and roughage plan for livestock. "The desperate condition n! many of our fani families cannot. he over-dramatized," White said.
