f THTTRSTUY, 'APRTL 14, l!)4fl BLYTHEVTLI,E (ARK.)' COURTER NEWS PAGE Air Force, Army Blast Unification Law Not Working Satisfactorily, Two Defense Chiefs Say V* WASHINGTON, April 14. 01V- The Air Force joined (he Army yesterday In publicly blasting the existing national defense set-up as inadequate and expensive. Secretary ol Atr Symington, appearing at a closed-door session of the Senate Armed Services Committee last Thursday, declared tile present unification law "has not worked satisfactorily." Chalrnini Tydlngs <U-Md) made the testimony public yesterday. "We have tried out this hall- mea.sure organization and there is unanimous agreement chat it is inadequate." Symington said. He added that former Secrctarj of Defense Forrestal "has constant ly been a referee of threi- brawls a: he tried to operate his job" • Ijke Secretary of (lie Army Hoy- all, who said much the same thing in an open session of the commit tee Tuesday. Symington said th civilian defense chief never Mill be able to ride herd on the quarreling Army. Navy and Air Force unless lie is given much greater power Such' authority, he said, "could 'iavi> billions annually." That could IK accomplished, Symington added, by operating tiie defense department "from a ( € 'art as against uyin;; to haul to- ; i'her three independent units." uch with its own training, pro- i curement and the like. When such a merger of functions was adopted in (he San Francisco defense region, he said, it ended a "triplication In warehousing, in transportation, and so forth." Urges Demntions Just as Royall did. Symington urged dropping the civilian heads of the Army. Navy and Air Force from their present ranks to the position of nnclcrsecret.u'it . Both officials went considerably beyond the measure intended to tighten up the unification of the three services which Is now before the Senate committee. The bill would make the chairmanship of the joint chiefs of staff —now held temporarily by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower—a permanent job. The chairman would he top military adviser to the President and secretary of defense. Both Royall and Symington gave that their complete backing. As now set up the joint chiefs must make decisions by unanimous vote. Royall called that an "absurdity" and Symington's testimony A'ent further. ™ "One member of the joint cli'Ks of staff," the air secretary said can "gut the decisions of the other two." Secretary of Defense Johnson Just back from a meeting of the joint chiefs with Eisenhower at Key West, Fla., made it clear at a news conference that anv disagreements among the military high command must not be aired publicly.
