KU1DAV, JANUARY 10, 111-17 LUO (A!UC.) COUKIKU NKWS 11 Billions Asked For Army, Navy President's Budget Message Warns Against Unwise Economy Moves KV CH1I.KS CUI.EMAN' United press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.—(UT) — (HFR> _. President, Truman today asked lor SI 1,25,000,000 lo run the Army and Navy. He warned tile economy-minded f Congress that any cuts below .that figure would weaken the country's iwsition in international affairs. Tiie funds would provide for an armed form of I,(i41,000 men —1.070,000 in the Army aim 571.000 in the Navy and Marine C'orps. This compares with an average strength of 2,108,000 this fiscal year. I'olnlinR out that his national defense budget for the 1948 lis- cal year, beiUnnini; next July !. is $3.470,000.000 less than for' the furrcnl fiscal year, Mr. Truman "ThoiiBli we expect Ihe united Nations to move .successfully to- v.ard n-<u'l t [ security, any c ilt in our present estiniiite for i!)48 would Immediately weaken our international position. This liit-Bc part of the budget, nt my judgment, represents a proper balance between security and economy." His words obviously were alined at those members of Congress who believe it will be nccessarv to hack at the proposed outlays for the Army and Navy to effect any sizeable economics. Mr. Truman conceded that the cost or maintaining the armed forces next year will be "high" for a peacetime year. Bui, he added: "We still have largo responsibilities siritfng out of 111 war. Military occupation in urop ant] in the, Far ast must continue. The lines of i communication and supporting |n) slallatlons for the occupation for- ce.s must bn maintained. Recruits must be trained as replacements.' Tlie President renewed his plea for unification or the armed forces ff[! said a single department of national defense is an "important step in Ihe search for cconomv and efficiency in organization and administration.'' He also reiterated his proposal for a universal tanning program adding that the armed forces have available left-over wartime equip mcitt and installations which could be used in such a program. Tiic budget estimated the War Department's needs at $6,558.000, COO in the 149R fiscal year as against SG,920.0CIO,COO In the cur rent year. Navy Department re quiremcnt.s were placed at $4,423, 000,000 as compared with $5,588, JWD this year. The remaining na Tional ' defense' requests were : - for strategic materials .stockpiles and other minor activities.
