'^WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5, 1950 Congress to Wrangle Over Strength in Budget— New Battle Brewing Over US Chiefs of Staff Caught in Fire From Two Ways By Ruth Cowan WASHINGTON, April 5. ' (/.')—An angry battle Is developing in Congress over how much security the administration's new defense budget will buy America. -In the camp protesting "not cn- •fh" Is Rep. Vinson (D-Gn). sup- jJTrtcd by Republican nnd Democratic members of the House Armed Services Committee Vmson heads. In the opposing camp are President Truman, Secretary o( Defense Johnson, Chairman Mnhon (D-Tex) of the House military appropriations .subcommittee. Their stand is that the proposed $13,91l,127,OCO budget for the fiscal year beginning in July is "sufficient for present needs." Caught In the cross-Ire are the mltiary joint chiefs of staff, Gen. Owjght D. Eisenhower and .ccoh- omy-advocatmg congressmen o f both parties. IHasIrd on Rcfurn Johnson and joint chiefs returned from Europe just in time to be hit by Vinson's opening blast in debate on the appropriation bill la which'lie urged that 5533,289, an mo re b c adclc d Tor \v nip lanes for the air force int3 navy. Vinson told Congress that under the administration's military . program American air po;\et' will with- 1 . er on the vine at a time when the Russians are building the largest air force in the world "for use whenever their carfully-timed Pear Harbor day comes around." At about the time Vinson was speaking yesterday Johnson told a news conference he had ordered the joint chiefs of staff to re- sturiy the budget to determine whe- (jQ- more money should be asked for air force and navy planes. Eisitnhnwfr Sees Increase Eisenhower, credited with having helped draft the pending budget, fsld last week he now thought $500,000,000 should be added to it,. The former army chief of staff then recommended particularly the strengthening of Alaskan defenses and more and more modern planes for the navy and air force. Johnson told reporters he believed that all the military forces and equipment recommended hy Eisen- hower'can be obtained within the pending budget. In this ha, risked counter-attack by Vinson. ... Rep. Anderson (R-Ca)]f), a member of . the armed ''services committee, supported his chairman with a vigorous statement. He criticized Johnson as a man of "insatiable ambition — an unquenchable lust for power." Anrterson Urges Hole,Plugging • , Anderson-also urged .Congress-' tq oju what lie called many, holes "i^^he pending' budget .which "exist simply to keep the budget low enough to make the - 'economy record' of the secret of defense loom politically defensible.'" A prompt counter-attack to Vinson was made „ by Rep. Mahon. Chairman of the subcommittee that had considered the defense budget, Mahon urged the House to defeat efforts to boost it. "Our enemies want us to spend ourselves into defeat," he said. Defense does not consist of airplanes alone, Mahon continued. Rather, he said, potential enemies fear "America's industrial potential and her power to fight back." Russia Without Bombers He said Russia docs not have long-range bombers of this country's B-36 type. She has only 300 to 400 medium bombers'while this country has many, many more, he continued.

Tightens Security Plug For Germany BERLIN, April ft MV-A drive to plug leaks on security matters within American official circles has been started by the u. S. high commission In Germany. A team of security experts Is tightening the control system at the Berlin headquarters now. The drive was ordered after US officials were puzzled as to how an occasional fact contained in •supposedly-secret document turned up in the Soviet-licensed press. Eastern newspapers frequently spin out «n isolated fact Into a web of exaggerations. ' All officers are being Inspected to determine how documents with lop secret value are filed, through whose hands they go, and whether they me properly destroyed once their value is ended. Small safes with ordinary keys are ruled out. An old rule that Germany em- ployes may not handle confidential document* Is being impressed anew on ill officials. Al, German employes of the high commission have been screened as to their background, tendencies and political beliefs. One authority said leakage of Information, may be a matter of carelessness rather than disloyalty. A Gci-niim employe m.iy accidentally, sec a classified document long enough lo notice a fact or two, then talk about it with friends. In the Frankfurt headquarters, a renewed drive to safeguard security was inspired by the recent trickery of a German. He posed as an American security officer and wandered through the place until a scries of petty robberies led direclly to him. He confessed. the "full o.ropcration" of Israel and Jordan, who now occupy-the divided Holy city.
