;f frSIDAY, AUGUST 26. 1949 THS NATION TODAY— Armed Forces' Economy Move Brings Howls of Pain From Congressmen Over Job Losses By Janes Marlow WASHINGTON. Aug. 36. (/Py-Howls of pain came from congressmen this week over the economy stroke of the armed forces, but more cuts of some kind are still to come. Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson invited a battalion of congressmen lo his office Wednesday and there broke to ihem news some of them did not like to hear even though they've been preaching economy themselves. + He told them the •LTTHE7ILLE '( ARK.T COURIER VTEWM Wisconsin Heifer by Name of Snoopy Lands in Silo, But Must Wear Muzzle armed forces were going to chop 125,000 civilian employes off the payroll and shut down about 50 military installations at home and abroad to save about $300,000.000 a year. The reason the congressmen suffered anguish over the news was this; They've preached economy in the ..abstract but this economy £[ i1(jft> home at their own states, where layoffs and shutdowns meant : lost income. Truman Issues Order At Ills news conference late yesterday President Truman said he hscj ordered Johnson to make the cuts lo economize on government upending. ' That happened .some Lime ago, for the secretaries ol the Army. Navy and Ai r Fore e had to work o lit a way to mate the cuts. But—more of the same, in some way. now lies ahead for the armed forces. Johnson figures that the layoff of the 135,000 civilian employe, 1 ) and shutting down 50 installations wi! .save Uie goernment, about 5500.000, 000 a year. I Yet, on several occasions in recent j months he has said he wants to cut rio'wn the armed forces spending by $1.000,000.000 to $1.500.000,000. Therefore he has another 11.003,000,000 or so in cuts to make before his wishes are fulfilled. Efforts to do that are now under way. Several weeks ago Congress passed a bill to unify the armed forces, strengthening Johnson's hand over all three services: Army, Navy and Air Force. Sets Up Management CommiUfe Almost at once he set up a national defense management committee, headed by Lt. Gen. Joseph T. McNavney. On the committee are officials of the three services. committee's job: To find of cutting down the armed forces' expenses. They're working on that now and will make their suggestions "later. Whether that will involve cuts in people or weapons not known now. For that reason, the cut announced by Johnson on Wednesday was only a starter. At this moment the armed forces have a- total of about 1.616,000 pie in uniform and, in addition.

The high point in number of civilians employed by the armed forces—2,634,000—wax reached during the war. After the war the number was steadily reduced until it reached a past-war low point ol 828,030 in December, 1941, just before the trouble with Russia began and this country started to. rearm, So the new cut of 135.000 civilians —reducing the total to 165,000—will b« the new low point for civilians employed by the armed forces since the war.
