Sixteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-TifttnM Doubts Spree Of Spending In Missile Race WASHINGTON (UP)—Chairman George H. Mahon (D-Tex.) of the House Military Appropriations subcommittee said today Congress will vote more money for missiles and satellites, but there is no need for "a spending spree." He made the statement shortly before his subcommittee began questioning top defense officials behind closed dears to determine why U.S. rocket programs are "lagging" behind Russia. Closeted with the committee were Defense Secretary Neil H. McElroy, Deputy Secretary Donald A. Quarles, and William M. Holaciay, the Pentagon's director of guided missiles. Mahon said the inquiry was prompted by "spectacular developments in recent weeks"—a reference to Russian success in launching Sputniks I and II. "We want to know wliy the lag (in the U.S. program) and what can be tone about it," Mahon said. He said Congress and the executive have been presented "with some of the greatest decisions; of our time ; " Mahon said: —Much of the money appropriated by the. last session of Congress for defense was "withheld" from spending by executive order. "We want to. find out if funds are still being withheld." —Some increase in expenditures will be needed, "particularly in the ballistic missile and satellite fields." However, it will not require a spending spree but "better decisions and planning." : * *_r ^^^^So^^jj --^jv j&yfa . .s':: '"•;•-lJM}l$Hl ~jCH^i$^S\wm*( (: "^T C: : : '! fliTO'gJUfe ;^'>tramcm5iraBri iiaQQa &V:••*'•:;:v:^-.p>r ^-v^ . • :. •: . -.(TAFWC^:-.;; ,,,>-.;, ; y ; t-^^i^Al^T-SOUTH />.-,-•. r^..--:- • ynJJui.^=v U-'f^' . ; : gf;j:^^|i^'^-,^.
