Draff Necessary, Backers Predict Few of 560,000 Men Marked for Induction Expected to Enlist By Frank Flcazrr ..'A C !!,. l>n:ss Sla " ''orrcsiiondr-nl WASHINGTON. April 10 ,UPJ- Draft backers said lodav most of the 560,000 men .narked 'for hidu?- tion under lhe proposed Andrews Selective Service Law will have, to be drafted. They are not expected to volunteer. Rep. Waiter G. Andrews R N Y predicted that volunteering—de.sp,;o ttf-v • incentives to sign up-won't ma,:e much of a dent in the big=e- manpower requirements propased in his drail bill. That would mean substantial draft calls in the 1!> throu»Ji n age group. The armed services? ow'r a two-ear period, could be boosted 10 a maximum strength of 1944000 men. How soon the draft got under way would be left to President Truman But he could not give the signal without first certifying to Congress that tne volunteer method had failed. Tn Test Inducements In no case could this be befo-e 60 days from the time the bill becomes law. Andrews said the waititi" period ia.-Lo :-isl ne,s' induceinenis for volunteers. These- include a r«- vivert GJ BUI of Rishlji and twj- year cnlLstmciit -periods. Hearings oil thi.s "delayed-aclion" draft measure start Monday beloro Ihe House Armed Services Committee.

YVthrwrln United Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, April 10. (UP) — Congress today applauded the recommendation of president Truman's economic advisers for deduced government spending.

His reaction was typical of many members of both houses, especially llle Republican majority. They pojnleri mil, that Congress paid no heed when Mr. Truman asked for standby controls, ill his message to the .special session last November. Wolfott's position was anticipated by Mr. Truman's council of economic advisers in the first of its quarterly reports ever to be made public. Jl said Congress would want 10 look over foreign and domestic spending programs before considering i revival of controls. Says New Taxes Nrriled The council, headed by Dr Edwin G. Noursc said Marshall pl.Mi spending and the new 53.003,003000 to $4,003.000,00 defense program "will not swamp our economy nor require us lo pass fro,], free enterprise lo regimentation." But il cautioned that some "svs- tomatic ami vigorous discipline"" is called for. The council criticized sharply the current coal strike. Us recommendations, based an the assumption of labor peace a ,i no great increase in defense proposals, were: 1. New laxas lo pay for all ne.v defense expenses noi offset by government spending cuts elsewhere. Reduction of government spending wherever possible. 2.
