TUESDAY, APRIL 8, 3952 BIATHEVILI.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Should the U.S. Army Have Free Servants in Germany, Not at Home? BONN Germany (.ft—Should the U.S. Army in Germany have special trains, free servants nnd other such benefits they don'I get at home? The military says yes, but austerity-minded State Department aides say they are lighting hard to get the Army to lake in Its belt. "We have been urging the Army 'for-many months to divest iLself of Items," said Chatmcey G. Parker, retiring U.S. assist nm hlsth commissioner for Germany. He said: "The budget is too tight all niong tile way to divert money to luxury purposes that otherwise could be spent on defense." " Offifia's !)ef!!nr. Comment, At U.S- Army headquarters in Heidelberg, officials declined to comment on Parker's remarks, A .spokesman said some of the points he mentioned were being discussed by ihe Germans and the Wesierr Powers in connection with the "peace contract" now being written for West Germany. Pnrker 1ms been bossing administrative operations of the U. S. High Commission under High Commissioner John J. McCloy since 1950. He sails for the United States today to resume his post as director of administration for the World Bank. Charged .to Occupation Parker said in an interview that the co.sls of the Armys special trains nnd thousands of German servants for Army families are charged to the Germans as "occu pa lion costs"—compulsory levies on the German taxpayer. The Germans, due to smrl raising 400.000 troops soon for Western •r'et'ense. have called for the U.S. Army to eliminate what they call luxuries to give West Germany more money' for her own defense contribution. "The Army just doesn't see eye lu eye with us on these matters,' Parker said. U.S. Should Use Every Means to Win War If Talks Fail, Kefauver States SAN DIEGO, Cnlif. M>i—Sen.
