The House of Commons scheduled a debate today on the government's plan. Churchill's government, with a working majority of 14 votes, felt confident of defeating whatever critical motions the MClallsU leveled at them. The spending cut will affect all Britain's 50 million people. Newspapers said it will bring the sharpest cut in a century to already low living standards.

Asked letter of Intent Tlie Air Force has not said, def- nitely, it would favor reactivation M this base and even If approved >y the Air Force, Congressional appropriations still would be necessary. However, Air Force officials here >aid Blytheville's chances of get-Ing the base would be greater if the City would forward a letter of Intent to Washington outlining the amount of community cooperation 'he Air Force could expect. Inayor Dan Hlodgett said "if anything Is worth having, It's worth fighting for. I feel the organizations favoring It are strong enough to overcome the opposition and If we do obtain the base, we will have something, in my opinion." The petition Is as follows: "We, the undersigned residents and citizens of Blytheville, Mississippi County, Arkansas, respectfully dissent and disapprove of the contemplated action of the Secretary of the Air Force to reactivate the Air Base at Blytheville, Arkansas. Our opinion is based upon the firm belief that the Air Force personnel will not receive the cooperation of the local citizens: that Ihe great clamor for reactivation of the base Is coming from a small percentage of the people who are looking for financial gain only: that the municipal system Is under a strain with the present population to properly function; that the condition of the Air Base docs not merit future outlay of taxpayers' money and that the Letter of Intent from the City government does not represent the true feeling of the people of this community." Council lo Consider Letter A proposer] letter of Intent stating the part Blytheville is willing to ulay In getting 'the base reactivated is to be presented to City Council at 8 o'clock tonight. City Council meetings, held in the court room nt City Hall, are open to the public and citizens are permitted to express their views at the meetings.

Chamber of Commerce, and as past president of Its Industrial Committee, I wus surprised that opposition, though apparently minor, has developed In regard to re-activation of the Blytheville air base. "Many of the city's leading citizens have been working toward the goal of having the air base reactivated for more than two years. We have made no effort to conceal the fact that we have been diligently working to gain reactivation. Yet. no opposition has made Itself known lo me or to members of the Industrial committee until now. This strikes me as being rather odd. "In flies. v;e have letters, some 100 of them, from people, generally considered to be the city's leading business and professional men, and a resolution from the Blytheville Ministerial Alliance, all going on record favoring reactivation. Seek lo Provide Jobs "I think It is worth noting that one of Mayor Dan Blodgett's principal pre-election platform planks was that he would give the Chamber 'active co-operation' in its efforts to reactivate the bits'. This vote I consider the voice of the people, expressing approval. "We believe that Blytheville is now In the throes of an economic crisis, due largely to the fact that the enormous defense . elfort has caused labor to migrate to defense areas, seeking Jobs which they can't find at home. "It is our intention, not only to serve the Air Force and thereby Ihe nation, in cooperating with the Air Force's expansion program, but also to provide Jobs for these Blytheville citizens who bad to give up their homes here and move elsewhere. "The city government will not require any additional taxes to assist this program, and lias no power to levee any tax for this purpose even if there were the slightest desire to do so. . "Tlie government has a SM.OOO.OOO stake in this air base already. By taking advantage of these existing facilities, the Air Force has led us to believe it will greatly expedite their expansion program, in that, it would not require the usual great expenditures for land and construction, as it would in building a new base elsewhere.

"It was agreed that clearly i very serious situation would arise In such an event and various contingencies had been examined without any definite or formal commitment being entered Into," said Churchill. , Churchill said, "No change wai made in this situation while we were In the United Stales." "In fact," he added, "the matter did not figure to any large extent in our discussions." < But Churchill also cautioned the House: "It Is not wise when a war is going on to tell everything always, to everybody, including the enemy.
