U filythevllle Courier Blythevill* Dally NIWI Blytheville Herald Misslsjlppi Valley Leader BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, APRIL 4, 1955 FOURTEEN PAGES Published Daily Except Sunday SINGLE COPY FIVE CENTS Wilson Is Sticking To Army Cut Plan 100,000-Man Reduction Is Expected by June 30 WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of Defense Wilson disclosed today he is sticking to the plan for a further cut in Army manpower strength. There have been recent reports of a new "new look" to leave more men for the groxmd forces, but Wilson, in testimony prepared for a Senate appropriations subcommittee, said the plan is for an Army of 1,027,000 by June 30, 1956. This was approximately the figure originally recommended by Wilson to the Budget Bureau. Wilson's prepared statement was read to the subcommittee by Robert Anderson, deputy secretary of defense. Anderson said Wilson was unable to be present because ol a cold. By this summer the Army will be down from a present strength of about 1,250,000 to 1,102,000. That level had been proposed originally icjr June 30, Wilson said, but may be reached "a month or two later In order that reductions can be effected in an orderly manner." More Men Needed Some Army officers, including Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, chief of staff, contend that a larger Army, not a smaller one, .would be needed in atomic weapon battlefield fighting. President Eisenhower has described Ridgway's demands for bigger ground forces as "parochial." Present combat unit strength of the Army is 19 divisions, 12 regiments and 117 antiaircraft battalions. By June, 1956. this will be reduced by one division and one regiment, but antiaircraft strength will be increased to 136, \Vilson said. Mentioning tests at Ft. Benning, Oa., and Ft. Hood, Tex., in reorganization of units to meet atomic conditions, Wilson said "the, force structure beyond June, 1956, may begin to reflect the results oi; these tests." i Reason for Concern Wilson said that because Communist military ncrver continues to i grow and now includes ability to 1 attack with nuclear weapons, "the United States has reason to be deeply concerned over the serious effects which a sudden attack could conceivably inflict upon us.'' Such attack, he declared, "could threaten our survival as a nation." Therefore, the defense chief asserted, "our primary objective must be to maintain the capability, first to deter an enemy from such an attack; and second, to blunt any such attack if it comes." This requires a combination of "effective retaliatory power and a continental defense system of steadily increasing effectiveness," Wilson said.

Local members took a prominent part in the council meeting, which got under way Friday afte-noon wi'.h the devotional period led by Ray, who was state chaplain for 1954-55. , The opening program was a panel discussion conducted by the Blytheville Hi-Y on the subject, "What makes .". successful Hi-Y" Panelists were Norman Shields.

They addressed the 127th national meeting of the American Chemical Society. The low cost of the mask—figured at between SI.50 and $2 — compares with $14 for the standard military mask and $8 for a previously developed mask for civil in as, they said. Face Is Filter Key to the cheapness of the new one, they explained, is the elimination of a relatively high cost metal "canister" for absorbing noxious gases or filtering out airborne germs and radioactive materials. Instead, much of the face piece of the mask itself constitutes the "filter" — a fibrous mat forming a pad and containing an absorbent chemical. The face piece is attached 10 snutr-fitting plastic mn- !o the face and head. A harm prompted concessions to the Soviet Union in ovtlcv to enlist that nation in the Pacific war.

MacArlhur said he wants the whole record released — if at all— because he understands that the 'Defense Department is now being asked to release only selected documents dealing with )Ians for implementing the Yalta decisions. He said this release would exclude "the documentation which preceded the Yalta decisions and which alone might cast light upon the responsibilities Tnvolvcd." Added Confusion Such partial release, the general added, "could only result in added confusion in the public mind concerning the issue under discussion, which is the re.spoa-sibility for the YaK> decisions." . In an editorial on March 25 the Washington Post- and Times-Herald challenged Mac Arthur's denial of any responsibility for the Yalta concessions. The newspaper said the general was known l,o have pleaded "for concessions to get Russia into the Japanese war." Similar statements were marie in Congress by Sen. Lehman (D-Lib- NY). Mac Arthur repeated anew last night his earlier denial of this, saying: 'After the recent publication of the Yalta documents, to my uttftv amazement, it was .stated on (he floor of the Senate that the con-, cessions made nt Yalta by the > { 'f W ' IV American and British chiefs of j Barney Payne, charged with ar- stntc were based upon my recom Opening .session of Chickosawba District Circuit Court spring criminal term this morning s»w disposition of 13 cases and pleas token in 10 others by presiding Judge H.

Wiley (R-Wis) suggested today that Congress "tend to Us own knitting" and allow President Eisenhower to decide what the United States should do In the Formosa Strait. Wiley, .senior Republican on the Sennte Foreign Relations Committee, said he supports Eisenhower's position in declining to say. rr.v what action tills country will tr.kc if the Chinese Communists attack the off-shore inlands of Que- moj' and Mtitsu, Alluding- to the defcncl-Formosn resolution passed earlier Mils year by Congress, Wiley snld In an interview; "SlgnlriccnL to Defense" "Congress htis snid that Vov- mojia is significant to our defense and must not fall into unfriendly hands, The President must ilccidu what ft is necessary to do to prevent that from happening. We must not limit the President in milking; that decision. "It would be well for us to re- cull thnl this is n KOVeminent of divided powers and functions in which each brunch should tend to its own knitting."
