Johnson attacked the niilUary as- iwti of the program us well, say- UIK compulsory tmining of youth embodied the "vile system and Hiiiiking" of Pi'ussiunism and would In.' another step toward n world armaments race. President Truman said last week that he opposed calling his program a "military plan because lie felt it should he well-rounded to include moral, spiritual, mental and physical development as well. •Johnson, a member of the Senate Militury Affairs Committee, said this proposal let "delegate the spiritual and moral training of Ameri-'-in vtmth to the 1 'brass hats' ouyht 1<> he offensive to every one who imiu'rstands the secret of America's tremendous success."

"Latin America will notice that we have substituted shotgun diplomacy for out own vaunted good neighbor policy." He maintained that in this atomic age "goose-stepping ami the manual of arms are pure poppycock which add nothing to our national defense." He said one chemist or one physicist was more valuable to the nation's defense than 10.COO foot sol- tliers. Johnson said his studies showed President Truman's program "on any comprehensive basis will cost 53 i:er cent of what the nation now spends for education." . President Truman attributed tin; lisiutegration of the ancient Rom- :m and Greek governments to their turning to mercenary forces for military defense. He pointed to these examples for argument to suport this country's need for universal training. Johnson said that "talk of' this republic's decline is vicious' nonsense." friends.
