Talbott said today the U. S. is not losing air supremacy to Russia. But he conceded that the Soviets are "doing a better job than I thought they were doing." ;; .;Talbott and Gen. Nathan Twining, air force chief of staff, gave :he Senate Appropriations commit- -ee an explanation of relative U.S.- Russian air power which senators said • was "reassuring." The air secretary said that the on,ly threat would come if this government were to "sit still" in its Depart-1 air program. But he made it clear Wake Hike for Postal Workers Vetoed by Ike 'WASHINGTON (UP) — President Eisenhower today vetoed a postal pay increase which would have given 500,000 postal workers an average 8.8 per cent w'age hike. Mr. Eisenhower objected to the bill because it would substantially increase the posal deficit and create new pay inequities affecting thousands of postal employes. The measure \vould cost the Treasury $179,000,000. In a veto meassagc to the Sen ate, the chief executive said the measure also created grave ad mlnistrative problems in the es tablishment of thousands of indivi dual pay rates and forced "awfc ward and unfair administrative practices" on a government de partment. Originally. Mr, Eisenhower pro posed a five per cent pay increase which along with adjustments in classifications, would have brough the total increase to BYz per cent. That would have s.cost the government about $129,000,000 a year, SPONSORED by the Democrats. the vetoed measure represented a compromise between a 10 per cent pay boost originally voted by the Senate and an 8.2 per cent raise first favored by the House. Both houses passed the compro Tiise with more than enough vote? to override ' a veto. The House passed it first, 328 to 66. The Senate followed ;suit, 66 to 11. Postmaster General Arthur E. Summerfield had served notice during House debate that ht> would .recommend a veto. This was n line with previous White House announcements that it would oppose a raise of more than 7.6 ler cent. .. . . . , , It was the second time Mr. Ei- Vena Elder, Pansy Marie Ellis.
