March 23 (UP) —Secretary of Slate George C Marshall is refusing lo draw a ling beyond winch Russian expansion would mean war, senate sources *atd today. Members of (lie Senalc Armed Jjervlces Committee, at a mectim; ^ith Marshall yesterday, asked l[ this government had' determined Just how much more Soviet aggrcs- lion It would stand before considering war. They were told no rigid "war line' had brcn drawn. One memlier •aid no line could be fixed. Another Interpreted Marshall's answer to mean that if one were drawn, it would be determined only as "circumstances" develop. Marshall, together with defense Secretary James Forrestal and Army Secretary Kenneth C. Royall. met with the committee to urge prompt approval of both universal training and the draft. Committee chairman Chaiv-Gnrne. R.. S. D.. said the three officials agreed it j was "Absolutely" necessary to have both.

Everett Saltonstall. R., Mass.. and Wayne L. Morse, R., Ore., declined to comment on their conclusions. Conclusions Vary Sen. Raymond E. Baldwin, R., Conn., said he would .support bolh proposals. Sen. Styles Bridges. R.. N. H.. would say only that the cabinet members had made a "very Impressive case", particularly for a draft to rebuild the services to their authorized strength. Sen. Edward V. Robertson. R., Wyo., predicted that Congress would m§t approve both selective service >Ad Universal Military Training.

R.. la., who did not attend the meeting said he opposed universal training but would* favor selective service if the administration "can make a sufficient showing." Congress cannot pass on a draft program before it has specific recommendations, ha said. Forresfal is planning to submit detailed legislation to the committee Thursday. In K''statement prepared for sub» inission-.lo the committee today, the U. S. Chamber,of Commerce voiced it.s supportvio'rruniversal training.
