IJ the Congo were lost, the general asserted, "I don't know what we would do." This was an obvious reference to the uranium resources of that African area. Eisenhower had hoped to keep his return to Abilene "a Kansas affair"—but this was jusl a wistful sort of wishing, if he was serious. At least 50.000 of his admirers from all parts of the country are expected to flock to the little town of 7,000 population for a big welcome which also will be a sendoff for the general on the last phase of the pre-convention campaign for SETEN Commodity And Stock Markets— New York Cotton July Oct. .

These provtvlons to be put into effect two years from now. The 52 pro-Rhee assemblymen pulled up stakes this morning. "We would have been very prop- f. rly criticized had we not accepted Ihe decision of our superiors in government." Truman Impounded Money Truman in 1949 impounded $615,"0,000 voled by Congress to build I Air Force up to 58 groups, rtsain in 1950. when -the question expanding the Air Force to 70 broups was before Congress, Trunan said the nation could afford 48-group force. Eisenhower led up to his stale- nent on the importance of air pow- with & remark about the late Brig. Gen. William Mitchell, World K'ar I air commander, who later "broken" for urging a sepa- Air Force over the objections f>f his military superiors. "There was a man named Billy Mitchell," he recalled, who agitat- I after World War I for a. separate Mr Force. Eisenhower added that he hlm- ' "instantly started" after World Var n to co-operate in divorcing power from the ground foices. Gen. C»rl A. Spaatz, retired Air force leader, "was my companion knd associate" and "I stood with him on 70 (ilr force) groups," El- benhour continued, adding that "we V'ere whittled down." Then he declared' that the dorni- nant power in »ny, future war "is jgoing to be air power." Eisenhower also told the news nforence this country must have hurancea it never will be cut off n the resourced and friends it In other parts of the world.

"Meat A*e" Movei Bkenhower said such moves as 19 per cent flat cut in military (spending proposals — as some nembers of Congress have urgcc I— Is a "meat axe way of doing pilings." Asked about the role of Spain j.ind Yugoslavia in the Western de jense program, Eisenhower said |"I have liked to think that Amer |ca will go to war only in defense >f free peoples." He went on to say, however Inhere was no question of the geo Izraphic and military importance o |:he two countries, even thougl •-here is a wide social and spiritua Inference between Yugoslavia am Is'pain on the one hand and tru • tree nations of the West on thi |D| her. Eisenhower said, too, that "Ko •rea and Indochina have as im Iportant Implications as any othe |;ector of the world." And he warned of a continuing l-langcr of "subversion, bribery ani • stealing" of free countries by th I~omniuntst5 such as occurred in |:he case of Chechoslovakia. "If Europe fell into the Commu- l.ilst orbit we would be very badly fplaced," (he general said. He said Ihe same situation would liold should the Communists con- liuer or subvert other areas of the with which Western Europe lias social, economic End political [connections. He cited in this connection the my Truman said with a smile: "I agree with you and I'll insert it if you say so."
