TUESDAY, MAY B, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (AftK.) COURIER NEWS Asks $5.8 Billion In Foreign Aid Ike Says Amount Needed to Ward Off Soviet Threat (Continued from Page I) total figures the mistake has been in setting them too low. Wy The president used the round ' figure of $5,800,000,000; Dulles pinpointed it at $5,828,000,000. Former President Truman hart proposed $7.600,000,000, in the budget he sub| -milled lasl January. Eisenhower told the Congress "it is necessary to do more in the Far East," adding: "We are proposing to make substantial resources available to assist the French and the associated states in their military efforts to defeat the Communist Vietminh aggression." 'To Further Freedom" < As to the necessity for the ap- proprialion, Eisenhower said, "the basic purpose of this program is simply the long-term security of the United States living in the shadow of the Soviet threat." He said the program included approximately $5,250,000,000 "for technical, economic, and developmental purposes designed to promote more effective use of the resources of the free nations' and thus to further the freedom and Security of all of us." f£i s The President said earmarking of so large a portion of the fund for military purposes "is a measure of the peril in which free nations continue to live," and added: "The blunt, sober truth is that we cannot afford to relax our defenses until we have seen clear, unmistakable evidence of genuinely peaceful purpose on the part of the Soviet Unipn." Referring to his overall request, the president said: "Unequivocally I can state that this amount of money judicially spent abroad will add much more to our nation's ultimate security in the world than would an even greater amount spent merely to increase the size of our own military forces in being. "Were the United States to fail to carry out these purposes, the free world could become disunited at a moment of great peril when Peace and war hang precariously 'n balance. "This is the best way to defend successfully ourselves and the cause of freedom."
