Dec. 7. (jP)—Sen- ator Hickenlooper CR-Iowa) said today Winston Churchill's admission that Britain can't keep up with her arms . building schedule may force a re-evaluation by Congress of foreign aid. The senator told a reporter he Is not greatly surprised by Church- Hi's statement to Commons that his government has given up hope of fulfilling its three-year S13,160,000,- 000 arms program on schedule. Churchill said Britain will fal short ol spending the $3,500,000,000 budgeted for this year. As a Senate Foreign Relations Committee member, Hickenlooper said he had been impressed on a recent trip to Europe by the financial difficulties faced by the Conservative government In Eng land.

Without giving details, ' a mlttee source hinted at ne.w deve opments In the sensational $500,{K tax shakedown attempt to whic Abraham Teitelbaum said he was subjected. The Chicago attorney testified he was threatened with "bad tax trouble" unless he paid off to two Tldrlrtans claiming influence with the Washington "clique". The committee decided not lo call Supreme Court Justice Tom i Clark'to tell why he appointed T. Lamar Caudle as an assistant attorney general In 1945 while Clark was attorney general. Caudle was fired by President Truman. King said he thought Clark probably would want to submit a .statement. Committee to Call MrGrath The committee, however, will call McOrath early next week for questioning about the "outside activities" for which Mr. Truman fired Caudle as head of the Justice Department tax division. The attorney general, voicing confidence, iri the integrity of government attorneys, said in a speech yesterday he is going to stay in his post "as long as It' is feasible and practical for me to stay." The committee heard three witnesses yesterday—all of whom contradicted much of the testimony given by Teitelbaum and Mrs. Shyrl Menkin, a friend of Teitelbsum. base. Today, defense organizations lanned to start a two-day test of te command and communication .achinery which would direct erial and ground protection of 'ashington. It was entirely a "pa- ?r" exercise, with no planes or •oops involved. An Exercise In Theory The Military District of Wash- nszton announced the exercise was ased on a "theoretical atomic and ieh explosive bombing of Wash- ngton." Involved In the command post xerclse is the Military District of iVashington, tile Air Force, Ihe Po- cmac River Command of the Nay. the National Guard, Const Guard.

The primary defenses of the cap- tal include a wing of Air Force Ighter Interceptor planes and ij'stem of antiaircraft units. Recently three squadrons of the ntcrceptpr wing— the 113th with leadquarters at Newcastle, Del. — ivere equipped with Lockheed F-94 all-weather fighters. Their mission s to locate and knock down enemy bombers in any kind of weather, day or night. Squadrons at X Base* The three squadrons are deployed over as many bases-Mhe 121st at Andrews Base, Md., ten miles from Washington; the 142nd at Newcastle, the ,148th at Dover. Del. The wing Is an Air National Guard organization which has been inducted into federal service. The Army, without going into details on the number of batteries or their location says It believes the antiaircraft defenses of Washington are "adequate." Presumably these batteries, like the Interceptor forces, are deployed outside the District of Columbia. The reason Is the same In both Instances: modem bombers travel so high and so fast that interception or gunfire after B bomber formation had reached city limits would bee too late.
