ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1959 ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 3B WALTER LIPPMANN Cost of Arms Race Is Too High ON HIS TRAVELS MR. K. HAS MADE a convincing case for the proposition that the Soviet Union wants and needs to avoid war and that it wants and needs a slowdown in the race of armaments. The Soviet Union is spending on armaments a larger proportion of a smaller national product than we are ; spending The Soviet government is able to do this because in the Soviet system the government has the power to allocate capital and labor to public i purposes. But In f NT the Soviet . Jk .Union, as else- f J where, things J Jiave to be paid K t WVitff for. The Soviet Union is paying lor its arma-ments by a lowing down In the rise of the popular standard of life. There is no Llppmann doubt, it seems to me, that Mr. K. wants, provided that he is not afraid of the conditions, to clow down the race of armaments. We know from the President's last press conference before Mr. K.'s arrival that an important, perhaps the decisive, consideration in his mind has been the expenditure for armaments and its effect on the American economy. . U.S. Also Pays High. We are, to be sure, paying for our armaments and art at the same time enjoying, comparatively speaking, a very high standard of life. But in order to enjoy our great output of consumer goods and ttill support the military establishment, wa too are paying a price. The price is (tie neglect of the future, the neglect of the needs of our expanding population. We have guns and we have butter. But we do this by economizing on our public facilities, beginning with our schools and hospitals and going on to our railroads and airports and the development of our cities. Mr. K.'s project for slowing down the race of armaments 1 EDGAR S. TURLINGTON DIES; INTERNATIONAL LAW EXPERT WASHINGTON, Sept 28 (AP)-Edgar S.

DEarhnra J 815? omit the Utopian future faces us with a national question which we ought to examine and to debate and to. decide. It is possible to argue, although I do not agree with the argument, that it is to our national interest not to slow down but in fact to speed up the race of armaments. , Spending Even More. The argument is that in order to be seenre we must restore what we had until 1949 absolute supremacy in the great weapons. The military budget should, it is said, be enlarged and the increase paid for by a reduction in the social services and by an increase of taxes. The counter-argument is that absolute supremacy is an ever-receding goal which can never be reached, and that provided we keep and protect powerful forces in being, we shall have the maximum security which is attainable. Mobilized Nation? Moreover, if we decide to step up the race of armaments, the Soviet Union, which is quite able to impose austerity on its people, will respond. In such an accelerated race of armaments, there will be ever greater insecurity. For the tempo cannot be increased indefinitely without reaching a breaking point. Therefore, if we decided to speed up the race of armaments, the only sane policy would be to put the American economy and the American people In a state of mobilization. It is not clear to me what Americans, who deplore the President's contact with Mr. K., think we ought to do if we do not find a modus Vivendi. I wonder very much whether they have realized and then have pre pared themselves to face the consequences of a failure of setting up a world conference of lawyers.
