THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 1958 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Ike Presents New Military Proposals (Continued from Pace 1) our military,striking power." Can't Keep Men In asking; a "selective" pay raise for military men, Eisenhower said the problem is to keep trained men in the services. He said only 11.6 P«r cent of Army personnel reenlisted in 1954 compared with a rate of 41.2 per cent in 1949. He added: "Since 1949, there has been one increase in pay which, along with increases In allowances, amounted to an aggregate advance in compensation of 5.7 pe;- cent. Military pay, nevertheless, has fallen b- Commodity And Stock Markets- Ntw York Cotton (1I:M •••l*U«n» Mar 3452 3439 3452 Ma.v 3485 3491 3435 July 3503 1,509 .50J Oct 3483 3505 3490 ' Dec 3503 3507 3504 New Orleans Cotton Mar May July Oct , Dec 3455 348J 3506 3494 3505 3438 J490 3510 3506 3454 3486 3506 3594 3510 2508 :t456 3187 35C8 3499 3504 3435 3487 3503 '1501 35C4 Chicago Soybeans Jan ... 283'i 283'.2 280'i Mch ... 277',:, 2T7U 275'i May ... 276!, 276^ 273-1, Chicago Corn Mch .. 154 3 i 154', May ... 15T-2 157',l Obituary 154 3 , 157 Chicago Wheat Mch ... 231' 4 231 S > 230 1 ; May ... 227i< 228 227 New York Stocks A T and T Amer Tobacco Anaconda Copper Beth Steel Chrysler ... — Coca-Cola Gen Electric Gen Motors Montgomery Ward N Y Central Inl Harvester ehind that of Industry. In addition, supplmentary pay practices, health, security and retirement benefits and bonus systems are now widespread throughout industry, and this fact tends to neutralize such advantage as the military services had in these fields. "While the high turnover in military personnel is costly In dollars, even more costly is the loss of experience and operational efficiency which results from It. We are losing too many men trained, in leadership and technical skills—the experienced hard core of a modern fighting force." To correct the situation, the President recommended: 1. An increase in compensation of military service personnel on a selective basis. 2. A selective increase in hazard' ous duty pay for airmen and submarine crews and for men engaged in parachute duty, demolition work, deep sea diving and certain other specialties. He did not say how much of a rise he wished. The President also called for these additional benefits for servicemen: 1. A "dislocation" allowance for military personnel with dependents who are ordered to a new permanent duty station. 2. An increase in the daily allowance for temporary duty travel from $9 to $12. Housing: Needs 3. More housing for service families-In areas where present facilities are Insufficient, and authority for reduced rentals where men and their families must live temporarily In substandard housing. 4. Removal of "existing Inequities" and provision for better medical care for military families. 5. Equalization of survivor benefits according to rank for active and retired personnel. In addition to requesting a four- year extension of the general draft laW. Elsenhower asked Congress for a two-year extension of special provisions authorizing the drafting of physicians and dentists. Those provisions now are scheduled to expire July 1. Outlining his plan for bringing 173 1-4 young men into the reserve forces 65 3.41 after six months of training, the 49 3.4! President said: 108 1-4! "At present, the reserves are 68 3-8 i composed of jldcr men who have 121 1-21 completed their terms of active 50 1-2 service. For example, less than 17 95 3-8 pel- cent of the men now in the 82 3-4 '• Army reserves are under 24 years 33 3-4 ' of age.' Mrs. E. C.
