Department Warns gainst Army Cut Personnel Reduction ould Lower Foreign Garrisons WASHINGTONr-House leaders bent on slashing armyappropriations have been warned By the Wat Department that any cut in, enlisted personnel means a reduction in American foreign garrisons during n period of serious worldwide unrest. Suggestions . thus /aiij^AneMJU^^ nel 'reductions ranging from. 1,000 to 8,000 and officer;'cuts of from 1,000 to 2,000. / , The move to reduce the army further Is led by Chairman Ross A. Collins, Democrat, Mississippi, of the House Subcommittee handling War Department appropriations. Although no report has been made public by this subcommittee it is known it included cuts in citizens military train- Ing corps and other activities amounting to between -20,000,000 and $30,000,000. "Any arrangement which contemplates the elimination of non-commissioned oficers would mean that or- gnnizations of the army now In being would have to pass out," the War Department advised Representative Collins in replying to a communication regarding what savings could be ci- fccted through enlisted and officer personnel cuts. "This would involve reduction in our foreign garrisons at a time of serious worldwide unrest. On the other hand, the private is the lowest paid man and to register any appreciable savings by this method would result in .taking essential man power out of the army with no proportionate advantage in the way of economics.' From the some congressional sources which divulged portions of the letter it was learned that the War Department plans' to cut personnel in the Hawaiian Islands if personnel reduc- Jions are voted. A plan to reduce the forces there by a regiment in order to assist in building up air corps personnel as required by law was abandoned three years ago. Withdrawal of this regiment from Hawaii was disapproved, the War Department notified Representative Collins an'd his associates, "in-view of the clearly demonstrated necessity of keeping that garrison in the Pacific intact." "This change in plan made it necessary for the troops within the continental limits'of the United States to be further reduced. However, if further reductions are made now our over seas garrisons cannot escape. This should not be done." The Waf pepartment letter pointed out that the net savings in event 2,000 officers and 5,000 enlisted men were eliminated would be less than JSI,000,000 due to added retirement tuats. It was learned Monday that both the War and Navy apropriation bills are being held up because of the relict among the small army and navy group that it would be impossible to obtain congressional approval for reduction while the Japanese war is in progress. Pressure also is being utilized to hold bapk the national defense supply bills to see if conditions will not improve in the Far East. «*••«»• Man Injured in Crash Near Arkadelphia Pies ARKADELFHlA, Ark— Burl Beard, 60, of near Donaldson, who was struck by an automobile as he was walking along a highway last Friday, died in a hospital early Monday.
