But he said there was another possibility—that between now and the 14th the committee could report back in the form of a request for more time.
In that event, the Senate might take brief recesses or a single long one, while House members could go back home to campaign.
While Vice President Nixon will appoint the six-man investigating committee, Ferguson said he assumed Knowland and Johnson would be consulted for recommendations. He said he hadn’t been consulted and the matter wasn’t discussed at a meeting today of the GOP Policy Committee.
Bobo’s Storybook Marriage Ends In $5 Million Alimony
RENO, Nev., Aug. 3 UP)—Barbara <Bobo> Sears Rockefeller ^o-day divorced Winthrop Rockefeller thus ending the storybook — but stormy — marriage of the blonde coal miner’s daughter and the millionaire.
Bobo, 37, exchanged her divorce decree for a reported 5ft million dollar settlement which she said would be tied up in trust for any children of her son—Winthrop Paul
She told a news conference after the divorce she will get a yearly amount for herself and her son— ‘enough to live on.” She refused to amplify, saying, “I prefer not to say any more about the settlement. These are things we just don’t discuss.”

Foreign Aid Bill Feels Senate Cut
WASHINGTON. Aug. 3 (JWThe
Senate took a sharp swing at the foreign aid bill today, cutting half a billion dollars from a measure that now stands 838 million below President Eisenhower’s original request.
It passed by a 67—17 vote a $2.610.000,000 authorization, which compares with more than $3.448,-000,000 asked by the President, and returned it to the House which had approvel on June 30 more than $3,368.000,000. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee cut this to $3,110,000,000.
Shortly before passage, the Senate approved 45-41 an amendment by Sen. Long (D-La) to slash the authorization by a half billion. i______________
An earlier amendment by Long; Congressman Robert L. Ramsay
generally regarded as having Marland ’s support in State Senate primaries trailed in the early going.
About the only lively aspect of the state’s otherwise lackluster primary campaign was the part taken by the Marland administration in some of the Democratic legislative contests.
Although Gov. Marland denied as recently as election eve that there was such a thing as a ‘‘statehouse slate”, the administration was generally viewed as having taken sides strongly In Democratic contests in eight of the 16 State Senate districts.
Although the returns were not yet conclusive in all cases, administration-supported candidates were trailing in seven of eight Senate races where statehouse support was regarded as a definite factor.
William E. Flannery of Man, three - time speaker of tbe House of Delegates, also was winning Democratic renomination with ease despite administration opposition.
In the First District Democratic Congressional race, freshman Rep. Mollohan led 77- year - old former

providing for a billion dollar cut was defeated 48-38
Opponents of the measure cited large amounts of aid funds still unspent, disappointment at Communist inroads in Indochina and the possible loss of huge stockpiles of U. S. equipment to the Reds at Hanoi.
The cut came despite warnings from administration and veteran Democratic senators that lt would be misunderstood by nations looking to this country for anti-Com-munist leadership.
Actual appropriations must yet be made for foreign aid, and here again there may be differences between the two houses that will have to be compromised.
The House has passed not only an authorization measure, but also a separate money bill providing both new and old funds. It calls for $2,895,944,000 of new funds, or some 285 millions more than the
