conflict between the House and Senate this week Passed by the Senate 68 to 20 Monday night the ayear bill contains these major provisions not in the previously passedHouse version A twoyear authorization rather than one year as in the past House foreign aid leaders might not be too reluctant to go along with this but it is coupled with A twoyear deadline under which the foreign aid program will terminate in its present form A 16member special commission would be set up to map the future of the program and make recommendations A farreaching amendment giving the Organization of American States an important new role in channeling mil lion of US military assistance out of the million provided in the bill for LatinAmerican countries A conference between the two houses to iron out a compromise is expected to start its work Thursday Sen J W Fulbright DArk chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee heads the team of Senate conferees Rep Thomas E Morgan DPa his House

channeling more of it through international lending organizations like the World Bank and also splitting the eco nomic and military assistance in two Morgan said he was unaltera bly opposed to splitting the bill and he prevailed in the House The House report that accom panied the House measure declared against any need to change the form of for eign aid Fulbright was unable to split the bill in the Senate but he backed the plan for the twoyear cutoff and revamping process This is likely to be the major point of ideological contention between the two houses The OAS amendment which grew out of criticism of US intervention in the Dominican Republic was another Fulbright idea It may win some friends in the House It requires that fu ture military aid to Latin Amer ica even for internal security purposes must be furnished to the maximum extent feasible according to plans approved by the OAS It is designed to give a multilateral flavor to arms aid in the area to counteract
