THURSDAY, JULY BLYTHETtLLE (ARW.y COtTRfBR Tfc* N««i» n TWay: $64 Question for Nation Wonders How Long War Preparations Will Last in U.S. B? JAMKS MARI.OW < WASHINGTON. July 20, (A'j — ou 1 the 484 question is; boir long preparations gainst war a ^jfVtrter aiirt only as flftydent Truman t ri I i yemerriay he wants $10 fc Thft country is now going on a kind of war footing. Nnt /iiU-seale— at least, not yet. But still on a •scale that leaves* behind the fat happy luxury of th e past five peacetime years, The armed forces will be built ijp. No one yet has said how biR they tt'iH have to be. This menus means many men drawn asvay from thetr peacetime jobs to serve fn the Army, Navy or Air Force. With the government about to control the use of steel and so other things winch industry hfl.s been turning out, there'll be fewer things likft auLos, radios, TV sets, refrigerators- Steel and a lot of other things vill have to be mined into instrument."; of war like lanks, guns, planes. All of this will cost money. Tn C'ftst Mo i'* [t will cost a lot more than the. government has been spending Even in the past luxurious years the government has been spfcndiuR more than it's been collecting in ISXPS. As a result, the Government has been running in the red. It will go deeper in the red now for, as aiirf only as a starter. 1 1 d Congress billion more to .spend. Somebody has to pay for all this t.o keep the government, from being ruined altogether by jt.s biir bills. Still no one will suffer any hardship except the men whose peacetime Jives will be disrupted by military service. ' "If VVfc'rr, lAicky" Maybe, It we're very lucky ami things don't ^et worse in the world. whal. ha.s been outlined is all that will have, to be done. If things pet much worse, we'll go on a full wartime, footing. But suppose we're lucky. somehow a world war is avoided, How long will we have, to stay on this semi - wartime footing? Months? years? Apparently, it will be years. That answer seems clear enough when you read what Mr. Truman told Congress — remembering that what be -ssJd tt'a.s based on the Informs' lion o( his advisers, civil and military: "We miwl recognize that it will br necessary for a number of years to support continuing defense expenditures, Including assistance to other nations, at a higher level than we had previously planned. Kcnnomic Measures "Therefore, the economic mca- gfl-es we will take now must be fSn nned and used in such a manner BS to develop nnd maintain our economic strength for the long run as well as the .short rim.** Those continuing defense expenditure.'; for a number of years "at n higher Ir-vel ihrvn wp lisui previously planned, " meaning higher expenses than we have " now- —and therefore, !t seems clear, higher taxes for years. The controls Afr. Truman xskcd Congress for are far less than he could have asked. Tn one (ield he definitely is ink- Ing a chance: he didn't s.slc for power to ration or control prices. He didn't ask It because, as he made plain, he's depending on Americans' gohd sense not to ruin the ecnomy by hoarding or pricc- raisinjf- Already there's plenty of evidence that a lot of Americans have been some; wild, buying unnecessarily ali over the country, and that some business men have been taking advantage of this to tuvost prices. If Americans don't show gnort sense in the economic field. Mr, Truman said, ratio-nine and pj-inr control win follow. But if that becomes necessary, the economy already will have been damaged be- King-Sized Bazooka Whams Red Tanks TOKYO, .July 20, W—The Army's fciiiB-siECrt bazooka—(lit new •3.5 Inch ground rocket launcher—ko'ei an official seven out.of seven Communist tanks today in its first battlefield' test. lliis was reported by General Mac Arthur's public intormalion officer in a sr*cial communique lonielil. .Front line dispatches said an eighth tank Inler was knocked out, The weapon was manufactured and transported from the United Sf.ilos in only a few days. naltle-lcstert gunners of the. 24th Division were supplied with Inn new gun only a short time before they turnprt it on the Communist tanks today when the battle for Tnejon flamed again, The new recoil-less weapon was described as » modern Version of the World War II bawxika except that it Is larger and is fired from the .shoulder.
