W) — Senator Byrd (D-Va) spearheaded a drive today to cut domestic spending, lo make way for an expected bulee In military outlays to Jlght the war In Korea. Byrd told reporters he sees no reason why some more fat can't be trimmed off domestic activities In the $34,700.000,000 single-package money bill the Senate starts debating tomorrow. "Purely domestic expenditures have been Increased 77 per cent since 1948," Byrd said, "With a war on our hands, some of these outlays must be cut or we are going to spend ourselves into the kind of bankruptcy the Russians are counting on." Byrd was promised help In his economy drive by a Rroup of Hepub- Hcans who backed a personnel and travel - (rimming amendment rejected Saturday by Die Senate Appropriations Committee when it approved the huge money bill, The amendment would not affect military outlays. Senator Taft (H-Ohio), who has said he would be willing to support any necessary Increase In military funds if that will bring a decisive victory In Korea, called also for economies in non-military spending. Cut (o be More Difficult Tatt told a reporter he thinks the Korean fighting will make it more difficult than it appeared previously tor Congress to cut excise taxes about $1,000,000,000, as proposed in a House-approved bill on which the Senate Finance Committee' resumes hearings today.

To date, however, the issue. 1 ! have scon limited largely to domestic mailers—highway^ schools, tftxes. i Laney, wno served two terms as' governor and was succeeded by Mc- *ath when he did not seek re-elec- .ion, has hammered most vigorously at McMath's highway program, financed by the two $7,GOO,OOJ bond issues with two more authorized. McMath in turn criticized Laney for his "indifference" to the slate's highway needs. Each candidate has extolled his own record In office and belittled that of his opponent. However, more of the original flavor of the contest is creeping into the campaign. Laney more fre- miently Is emphasizing the "liberal" Lag which he has hung on his younger opponent, and Is pointing to North Carolina, where a friend of President Truman was defeated, as evidence of things to come. Called "Defeatist" He also has declared that McMath is openly seeking the Negro —I'-— vote. Laney has announced that! """" going to lake place." After saying the switchmen are forced to work by court injunction, the telegram added: "Is this the manner of settlement you had In mind when you released your press statement last Thursday, July 6?" The candidates opened the next to last week of campaigning in widely separated parts of the state today. Hot Springs Lieutenant Killed in Korea Crash HOT SPRINGS, Ark., July 10. </Pj —Lt.

Ay Joe Marsh Hammy Turns Spring Into "Fall" Visited Hammy Gilbert over ml Hie hospital Thursday. He's coming alontf fine — resting conirortabl; and his liill is all <alien care of by that Hlue Cross Hospital Plan. Now, there's nothing: funny about a In'oken leg, but you'll laugh at Hammy describing his accident: "Twelve years K tclcphona linesman! Hanging onto 30-foot poles in rain, sleet—all kinds of weather. No accidents. No close shaves, even. Then on a beautiful Spring tlay I fall olT ft ladder, taking down storm windows!" "Well," I says, "when you're on the job you know you've just got to lake precautions. Taking »torm windows down was 10 tame you sort of got careless."

Referring to the international situation, Mr Math has declared that afler Truman was elected In 1948, Laney made the statement that it only proved there is no use fighting Russia. That, the governor said, classed htm with the "tree sttlers and defeatists" who have no faith in America. McMath also has claimed endorsement of both management and labor for his administration. He spoke at Camden, 'Laney's home town, from a platform occupied by union leaders. However, he drew a jibe from organized labor yesterday over the Rock Island strike. The governor, who was active in settlement of the Missouri Pacific strike, said Thursday that he was offering his services wherever they could be used In settling the Rock Island strike, and also that he would ask Presidential Assistant John R. Stcelman to intervene personally in the walkout of AFL switchmen. Saturday, President Truman ordered the railroad seized by the Army and fi federal court injunction ordered the striking switchmen back to work. Gets Union Criticism D. E.
