September 1965
Time;9/17/1965, Vol. 86 Issue 12, p43
The article focuses on U.S. Democrat Otto Passman's shift from being a foreign aid attacker to a defender. It states that Passman is the chairman of the House Appropriations' foreign operations subcommittee who had shown his opposition to foreign aid bills since 1955 by cutting presidential aid requests by 20% a year, totaling 20 billion dollars. The change happened when George Mahon took over Clarence Cannon's chairmanship at the House of Appropriation wherein Passman found himself powerless.
