The House and Senate passed & compromise bill authorizing a foreign aid outlay $900 mil lion below what Mr. FEisen hower had proposed for the fiscal year which began July 1

Action came on voice in both chambers. There was no debate The authorization bill now goes to the White House

Rep. Joseph W. Martin Jr., (R-Mass.) House Minority Leader, startied his col- leagues yesterday when he said he based his views on foreign aid on “the judg- ment of the President and General Motors.”

As laughter died down, it became apparent that the Re. publican leader had meant to refer to the “General Staff” —a term he uses interchangé- ably for the Joint Chiefs of Ss

But Mr. Eisenhower's plea appeared to be directed more at a pending appropriations bill than at the authorization measure.

This appropriations legisla tion—the actual foreign aid money bill—provides for only $3.6 billion, or $1.3 billion less than the President had re quested.

“It is my earnest conviction that the successive slashes that the committees Congress have made in mutual security funds are not in the best inter ests of the United States of America,” Mr. Eisenhower said

Airport

Weeks Asks CAB To Designate Friendship as Alternate Field

Robert E. Baker Siaft Rew

President Eisenhower asked Congress yesterday for $34.7 million to start construction of a huge air- port at Burke in Fairfax County.

Immediately following the request, Commerce Secretary Sinclair Weeks asked the Civil Aeronautics Board to desig nate immediately Baltimore's Friendship International A\ir- port as an alternate to congest- ed Washington National Air port

Weeks said that even if Congress appropriates the Burke funds in these closing days of the session and con- struction on the Burke project begins at once, the new air- port would not be available for traffic until Jume, 1959

Meanwhile, he said, Friend. ship should be available for excess Washington traffic

The President's request al. ready has been forwarded to Senate Appropriations Committee where, a staff! mem- ber said, hearings on the con. troversial measure will be held later this week. _

This spokesman said there would be enough time in this session of Congress for ap- proval of the Burke appropria- tion. A last-ditch fight by long- time opponents, however, al- ready was forming.

Sen. John Marshall Butler (R-Md.) said he world .“vigor- ously oppose” the request and he forecast its defeat. Sen. J. Glenn Beall (R-Md.), who noted he had been a consistent backer of the “Eisenhower program,”

Congressional transit con- ferees met for 1‘2 hours yester- day but got only about halfway through their job of going over a proposed franchise under which O. Roy Chalk would op- erate transit here

Kept hopping by roll--call votes in each chamber, the House-Senate Conference Com- mittee met an hour late at 3:30 p. m. and broke up at 5 p. m when the Senators had to go to vote

Conferees said they agreed on nothing definitely, and wil meet again at 2:30 p. m Wednesday to try to finish the work

It could take more than one meeting, because the group has not yet come to grips with the one big question it is expected to fight over—whether to cre-

ate a public authority to run transit if Chalk’s offer to buy is voted down by Captita!l Transit’s stockholders Aug. 3.

The Commissioners have pro- posed creating a standby au- thority to be sure that transit keeps running if something should happen iP the Chalk deal after CTC’s franchise dies Aug. 14

Rep. Oren Harris (D-Ark.), ranking House conferee, and some other House members don't like the idea of a public authority and don't want it in the bill in any form—even though it becomes academic if CTC’s stockholders sell to Chalk.

Harris prefers to assure con- tinued service by letting CTC continue operating until Janu.

ATHENS, July 9 (“” Earthquakes and giant tidal waves struck a group of islands in the southern Aegean Sea today. Forty-two persons were reported killed, while more than 46 were injured. Property damage wes high as

the earth shocks from the sea crumbled homes and business places. The cas- ualty figures were released by Greek nava) authorities.

Worst hit of 12 islands af- fected was Thira, a crescent- shaped island 12 miles long and three miles wide known also as Santorini, where an erupting volcano added to the devastation.

Reports from Thira said 32 lives were lost and 20 persons were listed as missing. The total population of the dsland, the southernmost of the Cyc- lades group, about 10,000. Most houses there collapsed and the rest are uninhabitable, a Government report said.

[At Pasadena, Calif., the United Press reported, Cali fornia Institute of Technology instruments showed the quake had an intensity of 8.0, “among the top two or three quakes of the 20th Century in Europe.”|

los, which some legends say is the burial place of Homer, was hard hit, too. That island, 12 miles long and 5 miles wide north Thira, reported 10 dead. Nearly all] houses on the island collapsed and additional victims were feared buried in the debris.

The quakes were felt in Athens, but no damage occur- red in the Greek capital. Gov- ernment authorities sent 12 naval vessels and planes with doctors, medical supplies and nurses to the stricken islands.

The pilot of a Greek air force plane that flew over Thira said most of it was shrouded in dust and clouds with the adjoining sea “vio- lently disturbed.” The volcano there erupted strongly after the quake and slight shocks continued into the afternoon, the Athens observatory said.

Vice President Answers Nehru’s Remark His Talk

Was ‘Undemocratic’

KARACHI, Pakistan, July 9 “»—Vice President Rich- ard Nixon wound up his cir- euit of Pacific and Asian na- tions today with a warning that a governnient accepting Communist aid runs the risk of having a rope tied around its neck

The Vice President's declara tion, voiced here before he took off for Turkey, was a rejoinder to Prime Minister Nehru of India and a defense of his own July 4 speech in Manila in which he described neutralist policy toward com- munism as a “fearful risk.”

Vice President Nixon ar rived in Istanbul tonight on the homeward leg of his Asian goodwill tour and was wel. comed at Esenboga Airport by rurkish President Celal Bayar Premier Adnan Menderes and other high-ranking officials, the International News Service re ported

(The United States Vice Presi-

Nehru, who strongly defends his country’s neutral policy and acceptance of both Soviet and American economic aid, said in London last week that tolerance of differing views was the basis of democracy and that Nixon's speech was undemocratic

“Nehru is entitied to his opin- ion,” said Nixon today, “but if he reads my speech carefully he will find it the very antith- esis of undemocratic thinking.”

Anyone ‘who suggests Ked assistance is not inconsistent with freedom is reading history incorrectly,” Nixon added at a news conference.

History showed, he con- tinued, that Soviet economic and military aid is given only for the purpose of winning a “Red satellite economically, politically and militarily

“Soviet Aid.” he concluded. “is offered not with strings— but with a rope. And the recipient runs almost the cer- tain risk of having the rope tied around its neck.”

The fact that Nixon flew here from the Philippines South Vietnam and Thailand without stopping in India also was likely to stir resentment in New Delhi.

Most of the pro~ertys owned by German and nese aliens

The measure also would pro- vide for payment of American citizens and companies for war damage claims against Ger- many and Japan for property seized by those countries. They would be paid in full from pay- ment made by Germany and Ja- pan to the United States for postwar economic assistance.

The Committee bill provides for return of the full amount of seized alien property and assets. The Eisenhower Admin- istration had recommended a $10,000 iimit on returned prop. erty.

Committee sources said the Alien Property Office now holds property and assets worth $500 to $600 million

The bill would ban return of property owned by Japanese and German war criminals.

It also provides for sale to United States owners of any property which the President decides would be adverse to the Nations interest t@ return to foreign ownership

The measure provides for re turn of alien property and as sets over a five-year period At the end of that time, the Alien Property Office would go out of business

Democratic Convention

Selection of Young Governor Seen as Boost to Adlai’s Nomination Hopes

By Tom Nelson

CHICAGO, July 9 UP Democratic Party chieftains today picked Gov. Frank G. Clement of Tennessee to de- liver the keynote speech which kick off the Party's National Convention next Aug. 13

National

will

Democratic Chair- man Paul M. Butler emerged from a <3hour meeting of 13 members of the Party's Con- vention and Arrangements Committee to announce that Clement had been picked out of 17 or 18 possible keynoters

The choice of the youthful Tennessee Governor was re- garded as a boost for Adlai E. Stevenson's candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomi- nation

Clement, at 36 the youngest of the Nation's Governors, has been a forthright Stevenson backer. It was earlier believed the leaders would pick a key- noter who had not yet declared himself on a nominee.

Butler said he did not see any particular significance in the fact that Clement is a Stev- enson man.

He also hedged on whether Clement's selection might rule him out as a possible vice presidential nominee.

“I would leave that to any- one else's interpretation rather than my own,” the Democratic chief said.

Traditionally, the convention keynote speaker is not a cardi- date for any nomination

Butier told newsmen that Clement's youth and the fact that he comes from a border State “had some bearing” on his choice. He predicted the Tennessean will cower the racial segregation issue “in a way that will not be offensive to any segment of the popula- tion” and will speak “fluently and persuasively” on the farm problem and other issues

[An Associated Press dis- patch from Nashville said Clement told reporters: “I did not expect this assignment. There were many other capable men who could have done an excellent job, but I'll do the very best I can to represent the Democratic Party and the American people.”}
