Barry G o l d w a t e r , H-Ariz., today criticized the decision to earmark $100 million for Syria and called for a fullscali review of the foreign aid program. "Are we going to try to solve the problems of the world by continuing to dole out money as we've been doing for the past 25 years, I might say without much success, or are we goinj to try to solve the problems o the world by keeping Americ strong economically, [inancia ly, militarily and I suggest morally?' 1 he asked in a Senat speech.

Inc., is chairman of the organizing committee for a conference under way in Chicago sponsored by the International Water Resources Association. To temper his forecast, he cited during an interview Wednesday developmeots which he said offer some promise of )reventing the shortage: While each American, on the average, uses 100 gallons of wa- ,cr a day for household pur- xses, such use is only a small 'raction of the nation's daily water needs. Development of solar, geo- Lhermal and other energy systems which do not require water, or only use small amounts of it, would result in big water savings.

An amendment earlier in the convention week had established three-year terms, instead of the old two-year, paving the way for Woodcock to head the next bargaining.

House Voles Down 40-Year Old Sugar Subsidy Measure WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House has killed the 40-year-old 'ederal sugar program, hut opponents and supporters disagree over what effect the action will have on retail sugar prices. The bill's chief supporter, Rep. W.R. Poage, D-Tex., said Wednesday's 203-175 vote will cause sugar prices to more than double. However, a leading opponent, Rep. Peter Peyser, R-N.Y., said the bill would have significantly raised the price to consumers. Peyser and other opponents argued that the bill contained a formula that would have boost ed the retail price of sugar bj at least a half-cent per pounf over the highest price allowec under the present Sugar Act. Peyser charged during de bate that the sugar program established during the Deprcs sion to help the industry sur vive, was now "making the tax payer and the consumer damn The program sets domestic and foreign production quotas and provides subsidies to sugar producers. Peyser said the object of the rogram was to stabilize domestic sugar prices, but that it lud failed to do so. But Poage, chairman of the fiouse Agriculture Committee, said, "The House is going to find out it must have a sugar bill. By tomorrow morning there will be second thoughts on this." Poage, whose committee drafted the measure, said tha' without federal payments to en courage sugar production, pro' duclion likely will fall, driving up prices. Poage said he wil not try k resubmilt the legislation. And barring further congressiona' action, the program that has been costing about $90 millioi annually will end Dec. 31. Judge Rules Airlne!
