FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGEFIVH Britain's Montgomery Displeases US with Military Merger Talk By ELTON C. FAY AP Military Reporter WASHINGTON (AP) — British Field Marshal Montgomery is heralding a return visit to the United States with a new commentary on the military future, directed this time at the need for eventual merger of army, navy and air forces into one service. A year ago. the outspoken Bcit- ish commander shook the United States Navy with some pithy observations about aircraft carriers not fitting into war's future. In a lecture Wednesday before the Royal United Services Institution, a military club in England, Montgomery took note of his previous talk, saying it "created quite a stir in military circles in thl: country and even more so in the U.S.A." Barbs at Enemies In his new lecture, delivered a few weeks bfore he is scheduled to arrive in the United States on a speaking tour, Britain's famous arms leader also: 1. Directed some barbs at the present form of armies — "the day 01 the armored division and of the infantry division as we knew them in the late War is past . . . Tanks must be an integral part of the division." 2. Proposed that an American be given top command .of global warfare because the United States has the only big strategic air force among the Western nations. Montgomery's commenats about merger of land, sea and air services seemed bound to bring reaction in the United States. One of the greatest points of contention in the years-long wrangle of the services over unification was the possibility of "merger," in which the separate services would disappear. The present unification system, giving over-all direction to the Defense Department, was worked out as compromise. Montgomery applied his views to the forces of all nations, not singling oufr the United States. He said he realized a true merger couldn't be brought about but looking into the distant future the objective should be to bring land, sea and air forces more closely together — "even to.the extent of combining them into one." He contended that "until this is done we limit ourselves to approaching, but not achieving, an ultimate goal of economy of force in the real sense of tre word."

"Judging from them, I believe a nationwide referendum would go against continuing foreign aid." Utah Democrats have blasted Lee's proposal. They asked the governor to either retract or re sign. Lee refused to do either State Republicans have said "Ni comment." Lee's assistant said 90 per cen of the letters came from outside Utah.

Health officials warned against hazards of drawing water from old wells. But water began trickling into the community yesterday, and Mayor Nick Reisovich said things would be back to normal after another day or two.
