Yesterday, the Senate In a 07 to 23 vote approved passage of the aid bill to bulwark Greece and Turkey against com- munism. Considerably less far-reaching than the House bill which won overwhelming approval last week, the Senate version nevertheless also is objectionable to organized labor. The AJM.. executive council late yesterday announced plans for a advertising campaign to fight both measures, Taft said he will resist any modi- fying changes In the Senate bill but wants the following additions: 1. A flat ban on Jurisdictions! xtrlkes and secondary boycotts, provided in the House bill. 2. Thn outlawing of union- administered health and wel- fare fnnd5. 3. A provision forbidding na- tional unions to dictate contract trrnu to their locals. 4.
