Vice President Richard M. Nixon and the Republican National Committee hold that the fibber is •former President Harry S. Truman.

Truman is not one to r.n™,-™ accept calmly an unwarranted accusation, especially an accusation made by the v:ce president or, for'that matter, by any Republican. It just happens that, as much as he dishkes Republicans, Mr. T dislikes Nixon much more. Nixon and the Republican National Committee laid whatever is wrong with the U.S. missile program right in Mr. T's lap. That was about three weeks ago and political Washington has been waiting, since, for some rocketry off the launching pad at Independence, Mo. Silence is not typical Truman under such circumstances. However that may be, the Republican Nationol Committee came »p last month .vith some defense, missile and research spending figures which would seem, at least, to require some answer from a spokesman for the Truman administration. Defense Spending Down The Truman administration had pared national defense spending, down to 311,900.000,000 in 1050, which was the year the Korean War began. The Republican National Committee toted it up this way: —Total for the national defense for three Truman years before Korea, $35,000,000.000. —Total for three Eisenhower years after Korea, $110,000,000,000.
