nally of Texas, Democratic for-

said yesterday he would conduct
an all-out fight for a foreign aid
bill bigger than the House voted.
The House, with a coalition of
Republicans and a number of
Democrats in control, Friday night
passed a $6,162,000,000 measure to
strengthen foreign nations against
Communism. This was $1,737,000,-
000 less than the $7,900,000,000
President Truman asked.

TWO SENATE committees have
approved a. billion dollar reduc-
tion in the Truman program,
bringing it down to $6,900,000,000
and Connally will fight to prevent
further cuts in the Senate debate
opening tomorrow.
Advocates of deeper cuts de-
clared the solvency of the Unit-
ed States is a main considera-
tion in erecting defenses against
Communism, and that the bill
contains plenty of water which
can be squeezed out.
The Administration was putting
on a big campaign to cancel out
the House cuts. W. John Kenney,
Deputy Director of the Mutual
Security Agency, held a news con-
ference to declare bitterly:
"The House did a wonderful
job Friday-it voted for defense,
it voted for economic aid, and it
voted for economy, and you just
can't do all that."

THE $6,900,000,000 bill which
the Senate willhave before it to-
morrow was cleared through two
committees - Foreign Relations
and Armed Services. An attempt
in the latter committee to cut it
by 400 million more was defeated,
seven to six.
Eleven Republican Senators,
led by Sen. Welker of Idaho, will
seek to chop a full billion from
the Senate bill this week.
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower,
chief Taft opponent for the GOP
nomination, has publicly warned
against cutting funds deeper than
