WEDNESDAY, JUNE IT, 1053 RI-YTHEVIILE (ARK.) COURIER PAGE NINE WorW Today— New Relationship BetweenSpending; And Economy Seen f Editor's Note: This !s the first of 'our stories discussing the Eisenhower administration's new ap- iProach to the defense problem — and the Air Force revolt against .;.«J[ ie Cl|tback in its budget. '* By DON. WHl'MSIIEAD For James Marlow WASHINGTON WPI — president ,,. Eisenhower and his civilian defense |'..chiefs are moving toward,a new veto MoLship between economy and ,. spending for ihe military security T; of the nation. And the goal is great[]' cr economy. . $ This move lias stirred up a brawl- I': in? dispute, particularly over a five £ billion dollar cutback in Air Farce ;'!itmds which critics say will weaken [ the nation against atomic attack I by Russia. |! But despite the critics, the admin- ([istration is pushing ahead with a |i new approach to the delense prob- j lem which appears to be guided by ['these convictions: £ 1. That Russia ij riot ready for pwar and therefore there is time for | : a critical review of military goals f fixed by the Truman administra- !) tion. I. ?. That security means not only (;-• military strength but also.a sound {••' economy that includes a balanced \i budget. Thinking Changes . Th_ administration has tossed in- ty discard a great deal of the think.. J'rg that guided the military buildup •J during the Truman administration. ,;• Secretary of Defense Wilson — who jlhas Eisenhower's support — has | even refused to accept as final esti- ?imtteu made by the recent Joint ( Chief- of Staff on what the size :;and compostton of the U. S. armed tj forces should be to give this country i|. future security. jj He has told senators the now ij Joint Chiefs soon to take office, and |it h f National Security Council, will review U. S. military needs and strategy and this study will provide the basis for future decisions on military strength. The Air Force argument underscores administration rejection of the thesis that this country must Rear its military buildup toward a ( "crisis year." This is a turnabout from the pUuuun» of the past UVo years. The Truman administration had set mid-1954 as the crisis point !n free world defense planning. This was the date on which it was estimated Russia would have stock' piled enough atomic bombs for war. There seems no doubt Secretary Wilspn and others around him vie\V the danger of attach by Russia with less alarm than the nation has become accustomed to — or else they are willing to take a longer risk In KILLS JOHNSON GRASS, BERMUDA GRASS, and many other grasses and weeds.

Doein'l Mutch U.S. Wilion has declared that Irom the Information given to him the Russian Al:- Force Is mainly a defensive force with n bomber arm that does not match American bomber power. He told senators the Russian Air Force "is much more a defensive Air •'orce and not »n offensive Air Force — that oUfrht to give the American people some encouragement." Sen. Hill (D-Alal wanted to know If Wilson hau meant the U.S: also had "lore of a defensive Air Force than an offensive force. The secretary replied: "Oh. no. We are the peopb who are building the bombers." n 'lv Implication In Wilson's reply seemed to be the Russians hase more to fear from our Air Force ihan we have to fear from Russian art power, a viewpoint not often voiced in these parts. Last month. Deputy Secretary of Roger M. Kyes said Soviet Kuss' "needs oil, raw materials, transportation and fabrciatlng facilities before it is in a position to assume risk of sustained war." And while he said the Russians should not ta underrated, he added It w«s significant that, ituslsn "has recently illpped In its potential." Can slow Down v Adding up these statements, it would seem Hit n w pentagon chiefs have slr.ed up Russia's war making ablllt; and decided the outlook Isn't ns dark as it had been pictured — ther:fore the U. S. pace can be slowed down a bit for a new look. On the economy sid«, the incoming: Joint Chiefs of Staff and National Security Council are certain to have .a sympathetic awareness of > administration's goal of a balanced budget and lower taxes when they make their study. W'lson has said: "The present ad- n inistration — and I personally subscribe to it — believes that our final security is tied up with a sound economy just as much as It is a certain necessary degree of preparcd- n ss." But the Air Force is rebelling against the administration and the fight is far from ended.
