Danforth says there is a need for more fiscal responsibility by the federal government in defense, welfare and farm programs. "It is because we have had people like Senator Symington in Congress that the country is in the difficult financial situation she is Jn today," he, said Tuesday night in a speecfi prepared for a fund raising dinner sponsored by the Central Missouri Republican Committee. "Symington over the years has established a record of virtually unchecked spending, both in the military and domestic areas, with too little regard for the consequences. Danforth is a candidate for the Republican nomination to oppose Sen. Stuart Symington, who is a candidate for re-election.

He said Symington was one of the biggest spenders in Amerl can history. "He has voted for planes that don't fly, tanks that don't run, rifles that don't fire, and duplicate weapons systems whose only justification for being is that a different branch of the military felt like having them," Danforth said.
