Army Chief of Staff Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor at the same time urged a speed-up in development of an anti-missile missile as a defense to any Russian ocean-spannings rockets. The step-up in 1,500-mile intermediate range ballistic missiles is expected to mean a further cutback in U.S. military manpower and domestic bases. PRODUCTION MONEY Top defense officials have given clear Indications their budget going to Congress in January will have a lot of production money tary said the defense budget may climb as high as 40 billion dollars next year. Defense spending now is runnning at a rate of about S38,- 400,000,000 and may go higher before the current fiscal year is over.

Defense Secretary Neil H. McElroy said yesterday the United" States would start supplying Britain with intermediate ballistic missiles ."before mid-1959." He said ship- Jments to other allied nations would "have to follow" later. McElroy made the statement to i reporters following his return from · Augusta, Ga., where he conferred President Eisenhower on the I missiles program and its impact y' e t"as .on the new defense budget which being considered as defense officials · put together their 1958 budget. The Army is known to be working on .the Nike-Zeus,. an anti-missile missile, and the Air Force is working on a similar weapon called the Wizard. One source said the Navy has been working on such a weapon but with less fanfare.

He emphasized that he was speaking, only of 'Britaltr; 'however, "and said shipments to other countries would have to wait their turn.

Although no hard and fast promises resulted from yesterday's conference of French Foreign Minister Christian Pineau and Secretary of State John'Foster Dulles, Pineau apparently is going away in a happier frame of mind than he arrived in. French officials said Pineau was confident he had succeeded in impressing upon Dulles the urgent need for limiting arms shipments to Tunisia.

By WALTER LOGAN United Press Stall Correspondent The Soviet Union has moved to bring Egypt into its economic orbit along with Syria. Russia accompanied the promise of economic aid to Egypt with new accusations today against the United States and Israel and said they- were plotting war against Syria.

The' charges against Israel drew prompt denials in Jerusalem. A United; Nations truce observer reported no troop concentrations American Red Cross, visited Israel to.check first aid and blood plasma facilities and not to plan an attack. .

It is the first U.S. aid payment to Egypt since last year's embargo following nationalization of the Doctrine as a "doctrine of war and colonial enslavement" and accused the United States of trying to hinder the economic development of Syria, Egypt, Burma, India and Indonesia.
