*RIPAT, JANUARY, 14, 1088 BLYTHKTILLB (ARK.)' COURIER MEWi PAGE THRBl Ike's Military Plan Wins Support-And Meets Opposition WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower has won quick bipartisan support in Congress for extending the draft and raising military pay, but he faces sharp skirmishing on some other parts of a broad new military manpower program. The President called yesterday for a four-year extension of the draft, more money and benefits for career servicemen and a reorganized and strengthened pool of reserve strength. The reserve program included a plan for six months basic training for limited numbers of 17 and 18-year-olds and a requirement that both these youths and regular draftees serve additional time in active, organized reserve units. The President told Congress In two special messages that these steps are necessary to give the nation its first peacetime "proper military posture" and to provide the capacity of dealing with any "aggressor so criminally unwise as to attempt an atomic attack." "Walt and Set" Chairman Vinson (D-Ga) of the House Armed Services Committee said he strongly endorses a selective pay Increase and the general Idea of more fringe benefits for servicemen. He said In a statement he would support both a four-year extension of the regular draft and a requested two-year extension of the law drafting doctors and dentists. Both are now due to expire June 30. But he underscored a prevalent wait-and-see attitude on the President's proposals to Increase and strengthen the reserves. In past years. Congress has remained cool to all proposals for universal military training, some of which have Commodity And Stock Markets— Ntw York Cotton (II :M QMtaMui) Mar 3447 3447 3439 3439 May 3473 3476 3470 3470 July ./ 3485 3496 3489 3489 bet 3479 3480 3467 3467 Dec 3485 3485 3473 3473 Ntw Orleani Cotton Mar 3443 3444 3438 3438 May 3474 3476 3460 3468 July 3485 3496 3488 3488 Oct 3478 3480 3467 3467 Deo 3482 3486 3473 3474 Chicago Soybeans Jan ... 281':, 281'2 278 278'/, Mch ... 274 2747i 272>i 272 3 i M.-.y ... 2T2 3 , 273':, 271':, 271'i July ... 268-ii 270 267^ 267-!i paralleled the President's six- month training plan, and there were strong indications the present Congress would take its time in considering that program. Chairman Russell (D-Ga) of the Senate Armed Services Committee told newsmen "undoubtedly there will be some increased compensation" for servicemen but declined comment on other features of the program. Rep. Arends (R-D1), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, said he was happy to see the President's pay raise proposal! because he considers them necessary. If more money keeps highly trained men in service, he said, the country eventually will save money. Skirmishing Expected Sen. Saltonstall (R-Mass). chairman last year of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the proposal "forms a strong basis on which a bill for building up trained reserves and for stabilization of our regular services can be written." Skirmishing is expected, however, over details of the reserve program and some of the fringe benefits which Congress has chipped away and the President proposes to restore. In addition to pay raises, Eisenhower said there is need for more and cheaper military housing, better medical care for dependents, and a fair program of survivor benefits. He did not detail his pay raise pz-oposals, but said they should be reserved for men serving more than their minimum terms. He asked also for selective increases in pay for hazardous duty ;a boost in travel allowances from $9 to $12 a day; and a "dislocation" allowance for families of men moved to new permanent duty stations. The Pentagon estimated the overall cost of the pay raise proposals at 870 million dollars a year.

Panty-Clad Primate Gets Plastered, Poses Problem for Police SOUTHEND, England monkey named Jokko was arrested for drunkenness yesterday, proving that Benedictine is hardly a proper potion for primates. Jokko found a bottle of the liqueur while prowling around the house in the absence of his owner Mrs. Molly Jones. Several drinks later, he rummaged through a drawer and turned up a pair of pink nylon panties. He donned these and staggered out of the house. He soon attracted a large audience of homebound school children. They laughed merrily, never having seen a drunken monkey in nylon panties before. In due course, the rumpus attracted a policeman, who took the tiny beast to the station house. Upon arrival, Jooko, now in a bad humor, threw papers about and attempted to bite the desk sergeant. Police finally had to lock him in a cell. Mrs. Jones was found at last and took Jokko home. He meekly closed his bloodshot little eyes and went to bed to nurse a severe hangover.
