of the parties for the coming two years will the adoption of the platforms forjSen Sparkman DAla told a re iu porter The Senate recently rejected a Republican effort in the Senate to set up a Hoover Commission type of organization to make an in quiry under administration and congressional auspices Report But I think there will be sub stantial support now for the For eign Relations Committee in

agree ment on a new for eign aid authorization bill includ ing for military as sistance to free world allies That was nearly 900 millions be low the program of military and economic aid origi nally
