THURSDAY, JTUNfc Z4> BLITJtUUVlLJLfi Trouble Predicted For President's Foreign Aid Plan By RUSSELL BRINES WASHINGTON (AP) — Some Republican congressmen today foresaw heavy sailing ahead for President Eisenhower's 3 1/2 billion dollar foreign aid program despite its approval virtually intact by the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The committee scissored only* seven million dollars from administration requests in approving yesterday a $3,470,608,000 ceiling for global assistance during the year beginning July 1. Rep. Vorys (R-Ohio), a ranking member, termed the committee action a "vote of confidence in the GUATEMALA President." He added this is the first time in his 16 years' congres-' sional service that a committee has avoided h eavy slashes In foreign aid. The measure now goes to the House floor, probably Monday, and Vorys predicted that several members, including some committeemen, would try to cut it. The Senate has not yet acted. Appropriations will bg voted later to carry out the authorized program. Rep. Ford (R-Mich), a member of the Appropriations, Committee, predicted that group would make "some cuts" when it starts considering the actual money bill in July. Program Essential The President, in a special message to Congress yesterday, called the prograir "essential" and said that, in the face of world tension, any cuts in it "would be unjustified and unsafe." A few hours later the House Foreign Policy Committee announced that it had 'approved untouched these major items: 1. Global military assistance totaling $1,778,300,000. 2. Military - supporting aid to Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific, 945 million dollars. This (Continued from Page 1) ment broadcast said the rebels had been repulsed and were fleeing toward Honduras. Col. Castillo was reported to have moved his headquarters from Es- quipuas, six miles north of the Honduran border, to a town near Chiquimula. This city is about 12 miles south of Zacapa, a key town on the vital railroad from Puerto Barrios and an obvious target of the invaders Bogged Down Newsmen who visited Castillo a Esquipulas earlier yesterday said the rebel forces appeared bogged down for lack of transport. Castillo, himself, said heavy rains and a lack of organization in the first stages had been his main obstacles. Castillo's headquarters claimed rebel planes had damaged ammunition dumps and other strategic points hi the town of El Progresol 35 miles northeast of the capital and also on the Puerto Barrios- FA« ITT* fiofon Twirling Classes' Age Limit Dropped Age limit has been reduced for the Y-sponsored baton twirling classes being conducted each Saturday morning.

Myers of Sprtngdale with- Guatemala City railroad. Rebel spokesmen also claimed saboteurs were moving ahead of their forces, causing serious damage with dynamite blasts. Counter Claims But government broadcasts heard in El Salvador claimed the "enemy" had been hurled back on all fronts and was fleeing toward the Honduran border in the Gualan, Morales and Puerto Barrios areas. They said loyal troops had begun mopping up scattered rebel groups that surrendered without resistance. In Guatemala City, Associated Press Correspondent Jack Rutledge described the situation as calm. He said the army still claimed the government held complete control. drew. Myers, who hasn't made a public pronouncement since he filed his $1,500 ballot fee, pulled out of the campaign as silently as he entered.

A third successive day of fair weather aided the situation. Downstream from Des Moines, the city of Ottumwa prepared for a crest of 16V 2 to 17 feet due there over the weekend. Ottumwa was ravaged by a 20.2 crest in 1947 but this year lack of rain in the valley below Des Moines has created an easier situation. Officials said they were ready for water up to 18 feet. Upstream from Des Mcines the river had fallen about three feet from its crest near Boone and U.S. 30 there was reopened to one- way traffic. U.S. 6 at Des Moines stil required rerouting due to a flooded bridge. Evacuees Return In Des Moines many flood evacuees already were making plans to return home within the next 24 hours. Some 7,500 persons had left their homes, mostly in a precautionary move in case the softened levees gave way. But city officials said they thought the. flooding- could be kept in hand at all major trouble points. "We think we have the situation pretty wel licked," said City Manager Leonard Howell. Major trouble spots continued to be the levee around Riverview Park and at Hayes Street, which protects the east side business district. Water trickled across the Riverview Park levee after workers had cause backwater from already abandoned efforts to save it be- nundated Birdland Park had food- Mr. Burnett had been ill about three months. He had worked for the city's street department 15 years and died at 4:40 p.m. yesterday at his home at 607 Moultrie Drive.

Clardy l-Mich) said today he is convinced some members of the Eisenhower administration make "mistakes deliberately to start trouble bef.vceu Congress and the White House." Clardy called for a "cleanup" in executive agencies as a result of contusion earlier this \voek about the administration's aVtitude toward a government pension for Alser Hiss. The Michigan Republican told newsmen they were "fully justified" in interpreting the publicly- stated position of two top federal agencies to mean the administration opposed legislation to deny Hiss and other convicted felons the right to collect federal retirement pay, Eisenhower's press secretary. James C. HaRerty. said the exact opposite was true. Hiss is a former ranking official of the State Department who has been convicted of swearing falsely when he said he never passed secrets to a Communist spy ring. Under existing law, he is eligible for a $700-a-yenr federal pension when he reaches the age of 62. Truman 'Couldn't Be Doing Better/ Dr. Graham Says KANSAS CITY Wi—Harry S.

Edwin Jenkins. 21. of Chicago. was fatally wounded in the buck of the head.
