Both Eisenhower and Patterson said the Army could not obtain a sufficient number of men unless the draft is continued beyond it-s present dale. Eisenhower asked for an indefinite extension of the draft. Patterson said that it must be for at least a year. Patterson said both the pay increase and continuation of Selective Service would bc needed lo meet Army manpower needs. He said the pay increase would "help overcome the advantages of civilian careers and Influence many valuable officers to remain in thc Army."

Snapping answers to Fyfc's sharp questions, Goering stuck to his story that he did not know of orders to kill Ihe airmen until it was too late. "I am suggesting that you are lying and leaving responsibility on the shoulders of your junior officers." Fyfc said. According to the affidavit, Lieu tenant General Grosch protested against the shootings to General Fuerstcr of the German Air Force and demanded that Goering be informed. "We decided the best way to reach Gocring was through Ocn. Erhard , Milch, and Fuerstcr called Milch! for an appointment. He left immediately,"and returned shortly to say he had reported to Milch and Milch marie the necessary notes," the affidavit said, Gocring asked Fyfe why Milch had not been questioned about the affidavit. "He wns questioned," Fyfc replied, "but he has the same story as yours. I suggest that you both arc lying." Mr. Thiman was asked whether this government favored postponement. The President answered with a tat no, adding emphatically that the Security Council meeting would not be postponed. He further affirmed that the United States will press for action on any disagreement pending before the council. Asked rtbut the prospects for another meeting of the Big Three, the President said with some obvious feeling that the Uno was supposed to take over things which would be discussed In Big Three meetings. • Mr. Truman added that he thought the, UNO should take this responsibility If It wanted to preserve world peace. The President reiterated his willingness to see the Big Three leaders whenever they wanted to sse him, but he stressed that he was not seeking a Big Three meeting nor were there «ny plans for such a conference.
