THURSDAY, AUGUST IT, 1950 BLYTIIEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Johnson Praised For Waging War At 'Small' Cost w ~LE Defense Official Say* Leader Gets Maximum From Every Dollar ALEXANDRIA. Va., Aug. 17. (AP) —Paul H. Griffith, assistant secretary of defense, said today that the dollar costs of the Korean fighting would be greater thin they are "if we had not, In months Past, learned to get the greatest amount of defense for every dollar spent." Griffith described Secretary of Defense Johnson, who has l>een criticized by some for his previous economies, as "the most sincere hrmesl and capable executive thai can be found any place In the world." A slroiiR example of the criticism of Johnson was supplied lust nigh by Clyde A. Lewis, commander o the Veterans of Foreign Wars Lewis told a Detroit audience Urn Johnson "gambled with trie secur Ky of the United States in the nam of vote-getting 'ecrnomy' and ,!ost. However. Griffith said in a speed prepared for the annual convention of the Virginia Department of th American Legion: "It is safe to say that few Americans, if any. doubt the necessity of military expansion at an accelerated rate, regardless of cost. However, it should be a source of pleasure to the taxpayer that the cast in dollars will not be so great as would the case if we had not. in months past, learned to get the ••Jtest amount of defense for ev- FP"' dollar spent. '''Indeed if this emergency had arisen not too long ago, many of the dollars which now can be spent for planes and tanks and guns and -ships would have gone into useless overhead. "This situation Is not accidental. , It was brought about by the earneat work of Secretary of Defense Johnson." Griffith said he was proud to be associated with Johnson and added: "His -plan from the very beginning of his administration has been to assure peace through strength and he has endeavored t' 1 build that strength within IhR capability of the American economy. He still believes that <ven In this time of crisis we should not tolerate waste tnd extravagance."

M>)— Many World War II veterans called back into service nmy have to cash in their converted national service life insurance glides, the Veterans Administration said today. They would do so because of inability to keep up the premiums while on military pay. a VA insurance ufTieial explained. He added (!iat. since most" veterans are well aware of the value of insurance coverage in military duty, many may decide to take out the cheaper so-called term policies upon returning to uniform. In effect it would be R re- conversion of converted policies. "A veteran can cash in his per- manenl-type policy at any time after one year," the spokesman said. "He can take out a new term policy once he is back in service, but not before." —Official U. S. Navy Photo FUTURE FLVER—Gordon C. Southern, 21. son of Mr. and Mis. Gordon Southern of Steele.
