MILTON KELLY WASHINGTON Wj—Sen. Douglas <D-II1> let fly again today at the Pentagon's "chair-borne pilots" and at extra "hazard pay" that is not allowed to the infantry, The Senate prepared tu.»t>s subcommittee gave him two hours to vent his feelings, and he suLcl he would need at least that long. Defense Department officials de-* . — '. niecl vigorously at a public hearing yesterday that "chairborne pilots" collect extra hazard-pay allowances for joy riding aerial Ini.s- sions, as charged by Douglas iti Senate speeches. Gen. Hoy I S, Vandenberg. top Air Force fjencral, and Vice Adm. J.H. CftAsady. deputy chief ol naval nir operations, both challenged Douglas' demands for a sharp cut in extra pay to airmen mid men in the .submarine and oiher ser-1 vices deemed extra hazardous. 1 Kesi-rvc Ihingi-ruusly -Small S Viuidenberg told the sub commit-! tee that the country's re nerve of | trained nirmen already "is clan- | gerou-sly small." He predicted n cut would bring wholesale fosses of skilled filers which the country cannot, afford. Cussndy backed him up. The hearings resulted from seriate amendment of a bill proposing pay raises to the 3 L ,_> million men in the armed forces. The Semite hooked onto it a provision giving n flat 545 a month extra "combat pay" to nil naval, air and military personnel engaged in actual fighting in Korea. Hearings Are Promised T h e subcommittee promised these hearings to head off a move led by Douglas to cut deeply into the hazard-pay allowances, which now range from S30 a month for enlisted men to 5210 for officers, according lo rank and type of service. Tlie infantry is not eligible for hurard pay on lop of ils regular earning. 1 ?, but would be the rninn beneficiary of the combat pay proposal. Sen- Steiinis <D-Miss), a sub- corn mil tee member w li o has [ ,, backed Douglas, cautioned Penta-1 ^ goti witnesses to "get ready for!

Averell Har- iiman, President Truman's foreipn affairs trouble-shooter, may be boomed as a Democratic presidential candidate. Harrirnan. director of mutual security, will be honored tonight at $100-a-i>late dinner sponsored by the New York state Democratic Committee. Coming at this time, the affair reflects strong support among the committee's membership to give Harrirnan Die state's 34 votes at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Tomorrow, the state's 62 Democratic county leaders meet here to discuss "the presidential situation" —full of more party question-marks since Oov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois renounced White House ambitions. ••Full-I'lcdj;ed Candidate" And a Democratic spokesman said yesterday that, if Harriman were named, he would be announced as a full-fledged candidate not as n "favorite son." The array of speakers and guests at tonight's dinner is practically n who's who in Democratic circles. Here are some: : Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee; Sen. Krieii McMahon of Connecticut: Vice President Alben w. Barkley; Stevenson; Sen. Robert S. Kerr of Oklahoma, and Sen. Herbert H. Lehman of New York. Sen. Richard B. Russell of Georgia is Ihe only prominent announced candidate not expected to attend. Harriman. known to be highly regarded by President Truman, worked closely with the late President Roosevelt and attended international conferences with him. Truman Has Not Chosen Mr. Truman has publicly expressed no preference for a possible Democratic successor. But it is known that he liked Gov. Stevenson and that he has been lukewarm toward Sen. Kefauver. .
