Paul W. Tibbels, pilot of the Enola Gay, the plane that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, said today that spies tried to sneak into the B-29 base where the bomber's crew got its training. He said the spies were captured. The youthful colonel—he fs only 37 now—was commanding officer at the secret B-29 base at Wendover, Utah, where the ' Enola's flight crew was trained for history's r>st A-bomb mission on Aug. 6, 1945.

He did not Ilsl llielr im- llonaltly. , The foreten assents. Tibbels said, I did not get into the base Itself. They were apprehended In the general area, he said, adding lhat he was sure they dtd not gain access to secret information. Back In 1044 and 1045 when he was commanding officer at Wendover, Tibbets said, he was chiefly concerned with the preparations for the dropping of the A-bomb and delegated bnse-guarding problems to his chief security officer. He did not personally handle the spies, Tibbels said, noting that "my security chief was alerted lhat In all probability 11 were hearted our way."

Spending 'Somewhat Under $80 Billion, Is Predicted By FRANK O'BRIEN' WASHINGTON (AP) — An informed administration source said today.President Truman will call upon the new Congress to vote about 731/2 billion dollars in new appropriations next year. Ho predicted government expenditures of "somewhat under" course, to changes by the incoming Eisenhower administration. Spending In the present fiscal year, the source said, will probably fall between four and five billion dollars below the latest official estimate, due to lags In de- Ions will be about wlml was pre- 'lously estimated. That would mcnn a five to six billion dollar budget deficit at the end of next June In place of the present official estimate of $10,On a cash Income and outgo information, from a man who asked that lie not be named, would be from two to three billion dollars instead of the. present estimate of nearly seven billions cash deficit.

These figures did not include nto'mic energy expenditures, Congress can also mnke changes, nformalion money for construction of bases and, replacement of material losses In Korea. Thus, Truman would be recommending defense spending in tis- c,i! 1954 of approximately three to four billion dollars more than the source estimated it will run in the current fiscal year. ' Truman would be asking for new defense appropriations five billion dollars less than the 46 billion!; of this year.
