Head Safety Council ing Higher Taxes Question Looms OKLAHOMA CITY (UP) - President Eisenhower put America on notice today to prepays for considerably higher federal spending if this country is- to keep abreast of the space age--and Russia. Whether the substantially higher price tag on national security would mean higher taxes was the billion dollar question before the nation. The President, in his nationally broadcast and televised speech last night in the Municipal Auditorium here, did not once mention the possibility of higher taxes.

Stevenson bslkod at assuming such a policy-making role ,but agreed to act as a "consultant." Dulles considers the problem of creating greater unity in NATO one of the most important tasks he has faced. He himself has been thinking about the problem for at least two years. He set a State Department task force to work on the matter a couple of months ago. The intensive U.S. efforts along this line started after the recent conference of Eisenhower and British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan at which the NATO summit conference was proposed. Dulles feels there is need for new scientific f teamwork among the allies and for parcelling out defense burdens so no one nation iias to become a "garrison state" in an effort to guard constantly against Soviet threats. of Kalispell, Â§7,100 or $5,475 with- faster Domber s, warning times will 39 billion dollars in actual defense m*. *~ i _ i m * . 0TnW .dTinrfpT* f * tlDDrfinrifltinrna rT^vf Tra-i-r _ _ .1 !Â«-/Â·* o u t . concrete work; Tusher and Bates of Kalispell, $4,043.35 for the building only, or $5,120 for all work including the foundation; Kalispell Cabinet Works, $7,800, or $7,620 without an insulation grow shorter. -- Development of an active missile defense against missiles by "intensive research and development." -- The addition of long-range appropriations year -- also item; John W.
