MONDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1S U.S. Unprepared Eisenhower Says General Hits Defense Weakness in Last Report as Staff Chief (ARK . V By William K. Me.Menainin Wniifil 1'rcss Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Feb. 15 iUpi-1 I'lie" International farts of life as Gen. DwigVit D. Eisenhower sees them are that Communism Is on the march, war Is always possible snd this country is not prepared to defend Itself. In Ills last, report as Army chief £M staff, made public lust night ' Eisenhower foresaw no planned nt- laek on tile United Stales In the Immediate future, nut unplanned War, world lemlons being what they arc, could break out any time and Elsenhower said, this country Is not ready for it. On the credit side, ol peace. Ki- tenhower said -tup defeat of the democracies, joined in common defense, would lie n formidable task for any power." He sairt "in case of early war." the democracies would exercise nlmost complete control of (lie ocean and, between them, (he transoceanic nil-ways. He also said a potential aggressor would hesitate to launch an attack thai would provoke a "coordinated—response." No stretch of the facts can the United States Army, as it is now manned, deployed and encased, be considered an offensive force," he said. And. he added, "unless remedial steps are taken, the Army with its civilian components may, in crisis. prove too weak for its defense mission/' One essential step that should be taken "without further delay," Eisenhower said, Is enactment of Universal Military Trninins legislation now locked up In the House Rules Committee Another, lie said, is adoption of the Marshall Plan to bolster potential U. S. allies in Western Europe. Eisenhower left his Army post lo become president of Columbia University. Recently he took himself out of politics with the declaration •that he did nut want and would not TOccept a presidential nomination. Separates Security, rnlilirs In his last official statement he sought also to keep national security out of politics in a period of international political, social, and economic turbulence "more marked and more widespread than at any previous time in our generation." "I have heard it, said that, in 11)18 major security projects have slight chance of passage because this is an election year." Eisenhower said. "But," he added, "our position of live, ten, fifteen years hence is being dclcrminetl now." Eisenhower left no doubt thai he considers Soviet expansion the bit- threat to peace. If "our traditional friends in Western .Europe—become the pawns of totalitarianism," he salt!. "America s security would be In dire danger " "We would find ourselvts faYine ncross narrowing ocean 'and hrtic barriers/' he sairt. "A despotic colossus spread over and beyond the combined , Eurasian territories of the Oman empire, the Persia of anti- the Germanic kings and the Mongol khans." He went on to say thai if u. s '!'

He was arrested by FBI apents yesterday on clmi-fics of taking photographs from-the Los Alamos, N M.. atomic project. Indicted by a federal Brand jury In Albuquerque, N. M.. Michaels w:\s released after arraignment before U. S. Commissioner Robert Miller. Michaels, a Clarkso- College Kiad- uatc presently is employed at Rochester Projects Division of General Motors, said last lliuln Ihe arrest came "as u big shock to me." "Federal men snlrt only two weeks ago that the cnse had been cleared up and that I had nothing to worry about," lie said. Information received here from Albuquerque said thai Michaels was accused of stealing and concealing [both classified and unclassified pictures on June 24, l!H(i, the same year ,he was discharged from the Army. Previously, he had been on duty ,U the Oak Ridge, Tenn . nloinic prol- icc.1. I Assistant U. s. District Attorney Austin J Donovan of Rochester said Ihe government will seek Michael's removal to New Mexico for trial on the charge.

In that event, Eisenhower said, "war would be close lo us." But conditions right now "are sufficiently turbulent." he added, "that war might be visited upon the world without the impetus of planning or deliberate policy." One isolalcd action, he said, could precipitate a conflict involving "nations whose whole desire Is lor peace." Ke:idiiu'ss Basis nf Security That, being the case, "our future security depends on American willingness to combat unceasingly the conditions that provoke war. and on our readiness to defend America and its principles should war break out despite preventive measures." In addition to universal (mining, Eisenhower called for strong land, sea. and air forces equipped with modern weapons, a lie;hleuiiijj-fast force capable of delivering prompt and smashing counter blows, a plan for quick Industrial mobilization, and stockpiling 'of strategic materials. Because the Army's budget and manpower are primarily devoted lo occupation duties. Elsenhower said, defense has taken a back seat. The Army. 100.000 men under strength and laking in modern weapons, is spread out so thinly around the world that it could must only "the merest handful for possible tactical use." Aleanu'liilc. atomic and bacteriological weapons have made the United States with its great cities and concentrated industrial areas more "sensitive" lo attack than ever before. "Many million urban dwellers who raise none of their own food would starve within weeks if the transport system were broken," Eisenhower said. "We could scarcely carry on if bacteria should destroy the grain crop of a single year." The answer, Eisenhower said, Is "dispersion, duplication and armed protection." is Is The Answer To Low Cost Housing will ram $25.000 Following Counties Now Available B, -.!,.,-. Cby.
