: Bitterness Marks End

Of Foreign Aid Debate

By Richard L. Strout

Staff Correspondent of The Christian Science Monitor


Bitterness marked Senate passage of the trimmed down $3,500,000,000 foreign aid

authorization bill.

The irony was that two of the United States’ strongest advocates of foreign aid were, in effect, critical of each other’s leadership.


President Eisenhower all but declared he might summon back Congress to pass a bigger

Senator J. W. Fulbright (D) of Arkansas, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations


, Committee, harshly charged that President Eisenhower was largely responsible for the

The dispute turned on a technical, but crucial, matter of procedure. . It is rarely understood that Congress goes through two separate stages in voting money

—first it “‘authorizes”’

the sum—and then later, after consideration by an entirely dif-

ferent set of committees, it finally “appropriates” the money. Senator Fulbright’s devotion to the establishment of a long-term foreign aid revolving fund was such that he proposed to eliminate the second stage. This is a not uncommon

practice: it was used 30 years»

ago by Congress to give Presi- dent Hoover the Reconstruc- tion Finance Corporation fund, It was similarly used for the Import-Export Bank and for the International Bank. It has a long and honorable his- tory. It is, however, suscepti- ble to abuse.


The—-fact. is that the Senate Appropriations Committee and particularly the House Appro- priations Committee are as mili- tantly against “spending” as the Eisenhower Treasury and budget themselves.

It is to their tender mercies that the foreign aid-fund, which has now been authorized with a 10 per cent cut over Mr. Eisenhower’s original . recom- mendations, will ultimately go. Further cuts there are likely.

Two years ago President Eisenhower approved of the Ful- bright plan to put the foreign aid revolving fund out of reach of the two appropriations com- mititees. The State Department supported Senator Fulbright both then and now.

Support Switched

But a sudden drive was started by the Treasury and Budget Bureaus agencies against what they termed “back-door” spending. Spokesmen of the two powerful units captured President Eisenhower's support and he switched position.

It is the irony of the situation that the first major bill caught in the “back door” is the one that Mr. Eisenhower himself most strongly supported, for- eign aid.

While President Eisenhower July 8 was telling his press con- ference that he might, in last resort, summon back Congress to get more foreign aid, a soft- spoken but deeply moving Sen- ator Fulbright was telling a hushed Senate that he consid- ered administration moves in

the battle maladroit and clumsy. | disap- |

MTA Clangs Farther ’n’—?

D. |

Senator Fulbright’s pointment was shared by one of President Eisenhower’s strong- est Republican foreign aid sup- porters, Senator .George Aiken (R) of Vermont.

Turbulent Topic

Background for this is that, at best, foreign aid has a turbulent channel to follow in Congress. It has no political constituency of its own. It is opposed by isola- tionists. To them now are added the economizers—mobilized by President Eisenhower’s own un- remitting attack on spending and warnings of inflation.

With the expectation of Eisen- hower support, Senator Ful- bright said he had proposed his five-year foreign. development fund and had stated that “it probably could not be adopted without presidential support.”

Instead of that, Senator Ful- bright quoted Senator Aiken’s comment: “The President pulled the rug from under the friends of the mutual assistance pro- gram.”

The President’s action was explicable, Senator Fulbright continued, “only upon the as-

sumption that he does not quite comprehend how the Congress of the United States is controlled and directed—in other words, how it functions.”

Senator Fulbright said Pres- ident Eisenhower had “clearly indorsed” the continuity idea for foreign aid. But “his pro- posal for a long-term authoriza- tion—coupled with simultaneous multiple-year appropriations— is utterly unrealistic and com- pletely inadequate to accom- plish his purpose.”

“The people of America are not bankrupt. Our government finances are temporarily in dis-

order because of unwise fiscal |

policies during the last five

years.” Complacency Scored

In a rousing appeal, he con- tinued:

“No, Mr. President, we are not bankrupt; but we do look as if we are determined to end up

the richest, fattest, most smug and complacent people who ever failed to meet the test of sur- vival. In air-conditioned and air-suspensioned splendor we may be heading for the last roundup.

- “The real hope and expecta-

tion of the Soviets, Mr. Presi-|

dent, is not that the United States will spend itself into bankruptcy, but that it will suf- focate in its own fat.

“Mr. President, if the Ameri- can people really

would prefer to survive poor than to die rich. I believe they would prefer to go to work in a Lark, than to their funeral in a Cadillac.”

The senator is highly re- spected in Congress. He con- cluded solemnly, “There is no law of nations that I know of which guarantees the prosperity, happiness, and power of the United States forever.”

Mr. Harriman, a former United States Ambassador to the Soviet Union, told newsmen at Idlewild Airport that Mr. Khrushchev showed a “grave ignorance of the United States.” He said the Communist boss believes American workers have

Beirut, Lebanon

There now is solid,evidence that the Iraqi Army, rather than Premier Abdel Karim Kassem, may be the prime mover behind anti-Communist steps being taken in Baghdad.

It is believed that the Iraqi officer corps—deeply disturbed by Communist inroads into the security organizations of that country—made a deal with Mr. Kassem whereby there would be no Army coup to unseat him if the Premier made anti-Communist moves,

An Army committee then appointed Brig. Ahmed Saleh el-Abdi, military Governor General of Iraq, as its spokesman, it jis reported. It is known from Western sources™hat Brigadier Abdi has moved into an office in the Defense Ministry next to Mr, Kassem’s, sleeps there as does Mr, Kassem, and that the two men are in touch with each other

early commuters thrown in, re- turning home .from work.

Soon, the sparkling greens of the Newton countryside had blotted out the memory of sandy beaches, and the car rolled to a conclusive stop at Riverside terminal, several miles west of Boston.

The whole thing cost 20 cents.

It covered 19 miles of track (including curves) and took al- most exactly one hour (includ- ing all stops and _ changes). About one-third of the ride was underground, but all of it was free of competing traffic.

There, in a single sweep of the hour hand, were some of the chief arguments for large-scale expansion of rapid-transit lines by the Metropolitan Transit Au- thority—cheap, reasonably fast, no highway congestion.

Boston needs rails as well as roads. Students of Boston’s traf- fic problems have been saying this for years, regularly and al- most unanimously.

Rapid Transit Urged

And’ by rails, they almost al- ways mean rapid transit not the’ steam or _ diesel pulled “heavy” cars of the railroad. Such equipment has become too costly and cumbersome for the short-haul commuter traffic, it is argued.

Rapid transit doesn’t mean

buses and trackless trolleys, ei- ther. These only help to clog the streets and highways, and are also more expensive to operate. The MTA calls them “feeder services,” highway extensions of the rapid transit lines.

These “feeder-line” buses should be eliminated wherever possible, MTA _ officials § and transportation experts say. Some maintain that feeder services are chiefly responsible for the MTA’s huge financial losses each year. Rapid transit exten- slons fortified with ample parking lots should take their place, they say.

Rapid transit means rails— elevated, surface, .or under- ground, whichever is called for in specific localities.

New Lines Boosted |

The MTA has made only two major rapid-transit extensions since the 1920’s: the branch to Wonderland in Revere, com- pleted in 1954, and the recently opened Highland Branch.

New additions, either to Need- ham or Quincy and-the South Shore, were given strong boosts yesterday from several sources.

The Massachusetts Senate passed a bill to establish a state transportation commission,

which could bed@dme_ the in- itiating force behind such moves.


The chairman of the MTA)

of the commission.

" Meanwhile, Governor Furcolo

hailed Highland Branch of the during a_ television transportation last night.

The Governor indicated that legislation for the suggested ex- tensions to Needham and the South Shore might be in order.

The president of the railroad tracks over which both these lines would run, George Alpert of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad, also stated yesterday that he would give “fullest cooperation” in discus- sions on the subject, and gave his support to the idea that “ex- ploratory work” should be. un- dertaken.

Music Lovers ‘Roped In’

Hundreds of Boston youngsters gather on the Charles River Esplanade on Wednesday mornings during the summer for the popular Children’s Concerts of the Boston Pops Orchestra at

the: Hatch Memorial Shell.

Mothers wheel babies in carriages or carry them in their arms. Others hold hands—but so often there's the tendency for the little ones to toddle off to greet other young music lovers.

As the concert continued—specially arranged for the enjoy- ment of the younger generation—mothers and children, alike,

found places in chairs, or on

blankets spread on the grass.

Lollipops and snacks were provided in the musical interludes.

Perhaps taking a tip from mothers who use tiny harnesses to keep their children in tow, four teachers from the Beacon Nursery School, Brookline, yesterday used a length of rope with loops tied at proper intervals to guide the 25 children in their care to the concert—and keep them there. Each child

held onto a loop. Soon the youngsters found a

comfortable place on the grass

—and enjoyed the concert to the fullest. Then they held onto the loops and went home to tell all about it.

It is also believed that there may be some rivalry between Moscow and Peking in Iraq, the Soviets desiring a slowdown in overt Communist activity lest too much anti-Communist feel- ing be aroused.

The source of this information ‘asserts that great importance |/must be attached to the key role ‘of the Iraqi Army in Baghdad's ‘immediate future.

If the Jragi Army-is led to see |Iraq’s future as a choice be- ‘tween alliance with the Soviet ‘Union or the West, it is lkely to choose Moscow because of bitter memories of. past British control of Iraq, It is of great im- portance, therefore, this source says, that the Iraqi Army see its future choice as one between |Arab ‘nationalism and commu- nism.

The informant said Faik Sae- marrai, former Iraqi Ambassa- dor to Cairo and a bitter foe of Premier Abdel Karim Kassem’s revolutionary government, had sought to set up the exile gov- ernment.

Mr. Nasser’s refusal was seen here as another important de- velopment in Cairo’s attitude toward Premier Kassem.

Mr. Nasser Jaunched a violent propaganda campaign against Premier Kassem after the latter crushed the Mosul revolt last March. At the time it appeared the Communists backing Mr. Kassem were taking Irag out of the Arab nationalist orbit.

Since then, however, Mr. Kassem has stiffened toward the Communists and seems to be holding them down

The veto of an exile govern- ment was seen as a step toward creating an atmosphere for bete ter relations between Mr. Nase ser and Mr. Kassem.

Art criticism is a chancy thing. One man’s painting masterpiece is to another an egg tossed into the electric fan.

But. the United States Gov- ernment seems to have satis- fied most everyone now con- cerning that batch of paint- ings to be exhibited at the American exposition in Mos- cow. With 30 nineteenth- century canvases being rushed by air to the Soviet capital to. supplement the post-1918 paintings already chosen from amid the moderns, the ex- hibit now has balance, per- spective, and a sprinkling of painters thoroughly non- Communist—they did their daubing before Soviet com- munism was actually in- vented.

Perhaps it now satisfies even Representative Francis E. Walter (D) of Pennsyl- vania, he who charged that more than half of the artists originally chosen had “records

Many may agree with President Eisenhower that we Americans would prefer something more representa- tive of the nation we know, even something just a teeny- weeny bit photographic, dare we say, and easily -under- standable.

selection, the experience of Polish artists last winter in Moscow. Or. rather Polish paintings. Before I left War- saw for the Soviet capital in January, various Poles said to me, “Be sure to see our ex- hibit of painting and sculp- ture in Moscow. It may not be wonderful stuff, but, by heavens, it’s different!”

The Soviets had set up a massive display of art from all the satellites and Communist China, There was a lot of sameness to. it, although in the Chinese ‘section one realized that the charm of Chinese art can never be really stereo- typed. But elsewhere, among the satellites, there were he- roic, conventional canvases— depicting the revolutionary struggle, or guitars on a trac- tor station, or Lenin in heroic pose, or the Nazi atrocities. There were some good pieces, and some very humdrum.

But there was one section that was never humdrum— the Polish exhibit. The Poles had used their 1956 burst of freedom to break out of old molds, to explode artistically in all directions. Here was im-

» pressionism, cubism, surreal- ses ism, and, for all I know, ex-

istentialism, I didn’t under- stand a quarter of it, but it was fresh, brilliant with color, provocative, different,

And here is the important point. The crowds of visitors ~-Uzbeks and North Koreans;


queues of Moscow students in the train of guises, casual Visitors and serious artists— all lingered longest before the Polish offerings. They dis- cussed them the most, argued, sometimes laughed at them, sometimes were impressed, The Poles scored the real tri- umph at that Soviet bloc ex- hibit.

50 should we Americans worry about sending to Mos- cow something less routine than the Soviets’ rather pho- tographic “Letter From the Front’’—on exhibition at the Coliseum in New York—or even their rather lovely “Daughter of Soviet Kirghi- zia,” also on exhibit there? I rather think they will enjoy seeing what is provocative and new. Even the American painting of a bloated general which President Eisenhower thought “more lampoon than art’”” might suggest daringly to the Soviets that we satirize the military.

Art, because it Speaks of human values, helps to bridge the gulf between peoples and cultures. So it is good to know that the American paintings for the Moscow exhibit have not been chosen casually or capriciously. Nor should we be alarmed if some of the paintings, like the Polish ex- hibit, are bold and explora- tory. : |

~ Legislature Alters” Bay State Election Laws Dras tical,

By Edgar M. Mills New England Political Editor of The Christian Science Monitor

Massachusetts election laws have undergone major revision under the Democratic-controlled 1959 State Legislature.

As a result of the revamping, Democratic leaders anticipate making further inroads with the Massachusetts electorate in forthcoming state elections.

Probably the mast election-law reform voted this vear paves the way for registra- tion of voters in mills and fac- tories.

For 25 years Charles H. Mc- Glue, former chairman of the Democratic_State Committee and the party’s top election laws ex- pert, has been seeking this regis- tration privilege. In the past, Republican - controlled Legisla- tures have blocked him. Equally enthusiastic for passage of the measure has been organized labor.

Under the new law, 10 or more prospective voters may petition for registration in a mill or factory. If the tenant or owner permits such operations in his plant, local registrars of voters must conduct registration sessions in the factory or mill.

Enroliment Change

Another McGlue - backed measure which has finally won enactment the way for change in party.enrollment by a voter. Until now a voter seek- ing change from one party to the other has been required to appear before the local regis- trar of voters in person.

Under the new law, he may sign a notice before a notary public and mail it to the local registrar of voters. An independ- ent voter also may file for en- rollment in one party or the other by mail instead of in per- son.

Small towns and one-precinct towns will be affected by two other changes voted under the McGlue-sponsored program.

Bipartisan boards of registrars must be established in 72 towns of 600 population or under as a result of one of these measures. In most of these towns at pres- ent the boards of registrars have been the boards of selectmen, most of which are Republican. Bipartisan boards have been re- quired in cities and the other towns.

Bipartisan Count

The other “small town” meas- ure voted into law this year re- quires a bipartisan count of bal- lots in single-precinct communi-
