The earlier poste ment is due to expire Dec but if the Humphrey e~ Sion is approved wht'n Aid Bill A roved by ~p Harry Flood Byrd Jr. (In 27 1 By Spencer Rich Washington Post staff writer The Senate approved a $2.7 billion foreign aid bill by a one-vote margin yesterday, 46 to 45, after voting to give President Ford two more months to solve the Cyprus crisis or face a total congres- sional cutoff of all U.S. weap- ons aid to Turkey.
