Advocate (Newspaper) - July 2, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 56 TELEPHONE m 5-14S1 VICTORIA, TEXAS, THURSDAY, JULY 2, 1964 Established 1648 Foreign Aid Bill Okayed By House Passman Cuts Turned Down WASHINGTON (AP) The House passed a S3.3-billion for- eign aid bill Wednesday after rejecting efforts by Rep. Otto E. Passman, D-La., to reduce il another million. The 208-198 vote against the cut closed Passman's 10-year- long dominant influence over foreign aid funds in .the House. The vote on passage was 231 to 174. Within minutes after the House acted, President Johnson Ijailed it as an important vic- tory for American foreign poli- cy and the American people "in line with the best interests of America and the best interesls of the free world." Johnson Praise "I congratulate [he members who backed a measure which was realistically and honestly conceived." Johnson said. It was a solid victory for Johnson and for his fellow Tex- an, Democratic Hep. George H. JVIahon who, when he recently became chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, em- barked on a collision course with Passman. Passman will retain his chair- manship of the Foreign Aid sub- committee, but his power over it appeared damaged beyond repair. He had used il in (he past decade to thwart Republi- can and Democratic presidents alike. Passman already had been defeated by Mahon in the sub- committee, which made a token 24 Cents COLLEGE Work is pro- gressing cm an additional 102-car parking Jot on the Victoria College Campus.

The board reviewed 19 more cases Wednesday, a cut from the Presi- dent's request but refused to go as far as Pass- man wanted. 171-151 On Passman's motion Wednesday to pare down the bill, 23 Republicans joined 185 Democrats in voting against it. Voting in favor of the cut were 143 Republicans and 55 Demo- crats. The roll .call had the an earlier light load compared lo firsl two days it was in and called it a day at 4 p.m. when the waiting room in the school district's Administration Building was empty.

Before he was rebuffed again, Passman made a last-ditch im- passioned plea that brought an unruly floor debate which at times erupted into shouting matches across the chamber between himself and Mahon. Passman, who had stepped down temporarily as subcom- mittee chairman in order to op- pose file bill on the floor and Iry lo cut it further, told the House "The taxpayers are en- titled to a break." Against Passman "I hope the House manifests the same failh and confidence in me as in past Pass- man said. Bul Ihe result went against him.

The staffer, Dirkscn related, made the approach "within the last few telling Dirksen, "Barry is a little shy about ask- ing for himself." tor, Dirksen said, he told Arizona, senator he would "give it good consideration."
