Lovett told the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee and the joint Economic Committee that even this figure for the year sta'rting July I meant a cutback in original defense goals. Approval Is Recommended Strongly recommending congressional approval of the 52 billions he believes is a rock-bottom figure Lovett said: "With a lesser amount of money we would be limiting our efforts (o a nrperam level, that, would. :h> creajf; beyond" the realms of prudence, the calculated risks already taken. Less Efficiency "It would force us to less efficient operations and would not permit the continued accelerated production during the next two years of the major military Items we need." Lovett snid the Defense Department realized that -the essential foundation of our entire military structure is a sound, vital and pro- "grcsstve economy" and that too heavy a drain must not be placed upon it.
