Wll son Thursday blamed Inflation for rlilng defense (pending. He ·aid he tries to hold down mill tary costs, but: "I am like a frog trying to jump out of well." At a news conference, Wllion also differed . somewhat with President Eisenhower's statement that greater unification might mean lower defense budgets. The secretary said not a dollar would be saved even If all servicemen were put In one ; uniform. | Wilson, who Is under Con gresslonal preuure to cut de fense outlays, Issued n special statement declaring that the Defense Department would be seeking leu money than It did In fiscal 1954 If It were not for inflation. HE RAID a "good part" of the Increase In military spending next year could be attrlbut- ed to rising prices and wages, He said he was sure Inflation also accounted for part of the increase In Elsenhower's overall $71,800,000,000 budget. As, for more unification, Wll son said he has, been dealing with the "handicap of blgneu' for 20 years. The former Gen. era! Motors president Raid he favors "decentralization" because It avoids "concentration of stupidity." EUcnhower told his news conference Wednesday some Hav- ings could be realized through more unification, especially In purchasing and procurement of military supplies. He said the unification law had not worked out a« he had hoped It would. Wilson said he saw no need for changing thn law, He said further concentration of mill- tary buying would mean a lot more paperwork with no added savings. He added that the serv- ces "don't overlap the way some people think they do." · · · · APPARENTLY aiming his bow at Congressional critics, Wilson said criticisms on such grounds were not "very knowledgeable." There has been considerable Congressional crltl* clsrr. of military buying pnic- tlces. Wilson said In his statement that "there has been » decided Increase In prices and wages since 1954 and this has affected tho Department of Defense Just HEARING AID BATTERIES 33i% In irl ·tJili ··!
