YOU XLY1I—HO. 268 U.S. Gambles RedstoWait, Senator Says Pentagon Sees No World War Till 1954-55 By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON WASHINGTON (AP) _ Sen. O'Mnhoney (D-U'yo) said today that top Pentagon leaders ai-e gambling that Soviet Russia will not touch off another word war "until 1954 or 1955." "I want to be more certain that meanwhile we have a defense program that allows us to keep up with the Russians in air power," O'Mahoncy told a reporter. He offered these comments as he asked Secretary ot Defense Lovett ant! the Army, Navy and Air Force secretaries to return ior a second day of public testimony on the $52.100,000,000 military budget tor the next fiscal year starting July 1. O'Mahoncy is chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee handling • the huge spending bill, lovett Makes It Plain Lovett made it plain yesterday that the multi-billion dollar defense program is far short of the totals asked by the military chiefs. He also testified that original goals for production of aircraft, tanks and other military "hard goods" had been cut back sharply. The secretary said that in preparing "against the dangers of a hot wnr, we must not be trapped by our own efforts into losing the cold one." "We Cut Hie Fat" "We have tried to eliminate the fat as far as possible." he said. "I am fearful that we have cut into the muscle in some places." O'Mahoney said the gamble that Russia does not plan an immediate war was evident in Lovett's testimony about production of aircraft tor Ihe Air Force and Xr.vy. The senator said the present tchedule calls for deliveries through »54 ami into 1955. Lovett said the defense production throttle is "set somewhere between wide-open, which is war, and tight-shut, 'which has been our previous habit in peace." Lovett said there was "no evidence of any relaxation of the ulli mate ambitions of the Kremlin toward world domination." But he said the present. armament program should "permit rapid mobilization to wartime strength if that unhappy necessity were forced upon us." - —~™^""^™™«l^«*^^^^B BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS _______ _____ ™ "OMIHAKT NEWSPAPER OT KOBTWA3T ARKAN.AS A*D SOUTHEAST WHummT Btythevllle Courier Blythevllle Dailv News ^ Mississippi Valley Leader Blythevllle Herald IS THIS BOKMANiV?— Eberhard Stern, former Nuzi said in Berlin that this picture is of Martin Bormarm, Adolf Hitler's long-lost deputy.

At GOP's Parlay $1 BoxSuoper Into Big Rally By ARTHUR I,. EDSO.V WASHINGTON M>> — Republicans parlayed a si chicken box supper, entertainment and speechmaking into a whopping, five-hour political rally. Nobody knows how manv people showed up for the Lincoln Day get-together last night in Georgetown University's gymnasium. But Ralph Duncan, In charge of passing out chicken, said he had over 8,000 boxes—and ran out. In theory, the GOP rally was neutral in its choice of a presidential candidate. Tn practice, there was quite a bit of Jockeying for position between the supporters of Sen. Taft of Ohio and Gen. Eisenhower. The Taft forces got away to a fast start. They marched around with placards reading. "We're for Taft." "Taft for a clean Sweep" and "Taft for President". Rep.
