Ellender Says Just Cash Won't Put Rockets Into Flight WASHINGTON (AP)—Sen. Ellender D-La. said Saturday night he willfight any efforts to give the Pentagon a blank check for missiles, satellites or other new weapons. "Merely pouring money into our defense program will not automatically work miracles," said Ellender, a member of the Appropriations Committee. • A Republican on the committee, Sen. Dworshak of Idaho, also took a swing at statements that Congress has been niggardly in voting funds for missiles, aircraft and other defense hardware. Much testimony before congressional committee hearings is seeking to create this false premise," Dworshak said in a statement. •'American security will jeopardized be and national preparedness undermined .by spokesmen of industry and science who contend that inadequate appropriations are responsible for the lack of progress in the field of pre- aredness." Kefcr To Inquiries Both senators referred to Sen- ate'and House inquiries as to why Russia was able to put up the first orbiting satellites and what the United States must do about it . Senate Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex) will resume the Senate's satellite-missile inquiry Monday with Navy witnesses testifying behind closed doors. His Defense Preparedness subcommittee will hear two World War II military leaders Tuesday, Adm. Chester Nimitz of the Navy and Gen. Carl Spaatz of the Air Force. It may wind up the present phase of hearings Wednesday 40 billion dollars of unspent funds that Congress had voted, including more than 13. billions that were unobligated. He said Oiis included more than 12 billions -for Air Force aircraft and missiles; more than 4 billions for Army equipment and missiles; and more than 5 billions for Navy aircraft and related" prociurement with testimony by Secretary of Defense McElroy. • A similar inquiry by the House Armed Services Committee will resume Tuesday. 'Need Unifying Ellender, criticizing President Eisenhower's new 74-billion dollar budget, said a big savings in dafense outlays could come from tighter unification of the Army, Navy and Air Force. ' "First and foremost, we must end the duplication of effort in the senseless battle that has been going on between the three armed services," he said in a recorded Suburban Rail Service Costly Jo Companies CHICAGO MV-The chairman o the Illinois Commerce Commis sion 1 said Saturday communities wanting railroad • commuter serv ice should subsidize it through local taxes. "Private enterprise cannot take the financial licking any longer,' said George R. Perrine. "The problems of the railroads are no necessarily solved by fare in creases alone. Let the communi ties that want the service sub sidize it. There should be some sort of a tax subsidy. Eva Felker Dies In East Mrs. Eva Felker, native of this city, and widow of Adam H.
