Patterson said yesterday that the present separate Army and Navy system is not adequate to defend the United states. Patterson testified ibefore the 'House Executive Expenditures Committee on legislation to place the armed services under a single Department of National Defense. The secretary said he believed' this country could forestall attack if it is militarily strong. But he said it-is impossible to set up deterrents to aggression "under the double department plan connected only by committees." B«ause of duplication and umier the double department sys- tcem. Patterson said, the "taxpayers will never get the utmost in national defense their tax dollars entitle them to." "The field of national defense is a single field," Patterson said. "It involves the employment of the military forces— ground, sea, Riul air— as members of a team. "Thia being the case, the top responsibility for direction and management of the military forceo should be concentrated, not divided as at present. The case for a uni- fjcd organization, as I see H, is as plain -as that.''
