ASKS $7 BILLION Kennedy had asked authority for the agency to borrow $7.3 billion from the Treasury in the next five years for development loan. Mansfield projects.

conceded that Kennedy's request for $4 billion in economic and military assistance funds for the coming fiscal year may be cut back as much as $500 million. "I think the President's longrange program will be more economical in the end that the yearby-year programs we have had," Mansfield said.

Aiken said he doesn't expect Republicans to take any party position on foreign every man for himself." The administration has not yet sent to Congress an authorization bill to implement Kennedy's March 22 foreign aid message.
