Proposal O.K.'d by 149-52 Vote Spain Must Agree To Join European Co-op Aid Program Wiwhlnrton The Houaa voted 149 to 52 today to Invite Fran- co Spain into the for- eign aid program. The foreign affairs committee had agreed to include Spain. But Rep- resentative Vorys in charge of the aid bill, said the State department is against it. And whether the Senate will go along Is another question. In any event. Spain could get in on the program only if she ngrccd like other participating countries to Join in a. European recovery pro- gram, of cooperation and self help. Spain Eligible Spain now is specifically named as eligible to qualify under the bill before thn House. Eastern European nations arc not. The door IK open for Russia and her satellite nations to come In un- der the same terms as Spain, by agreeing to terms of the program. Representative Hand (R.-N. J.> immediately offered an amendment (o limit the European program to the 16 nations which have signed up already to work together toward an economic comeback. Hand's amendment was quickly defeated. It would have stricken out the section mentioning Spain. It also would have canceled out In the same section a provision allow- ing Russia and her satellite na- tions to come In If they agree to play ball. Turn Down Amendment By turning down Hand's amend- ment, the House left the door open for any nation, whether named or not, to come In under the act by agreeing to terms of the recovery program. x Specific inclusion of Spain would have financial implications. The way the program Is set up, the Eu- ropean program would be distribut- ed among 10 nations. Addition of Spain would rcqulra some research into Spanish needs and requirements. And that in turn could result either in increasing total size of the Europtfan program or spreading the money among 17 Instead of 10 countries. Aid for China, economic and mili- tary, was the question before Senate. The foreign affairs com- mittee brought to the floor for ac- tion n. bill calling for worth of economic aid for 12 months, plus for any- thing the Chinese government wants.
