Senators Backtrack on Discharge Idea Proposal Could t — ~ — Have Cost 25,000 Seasoned Vets WASHINGTON, Aug. 19. (if) _ Paced by possible loss of 25.000 seasoned sergeants and corporals. senators backtracked toctay on a decision to direct tlie armed force* to discharge all enlisted personnel with more than three dependents. Such a provision was made part of Ihe bill to allow monthly support payments to wives, children and parents of enlisted personnel in the armed services which the Senate Armed Services Committee approved Thursday. Informed officers of the armed services quickly pointed out. however, (hat the provision might cost them as many as 25.000 seasoned non-cominCssionccl officers alreariv on duty—some o( them in Korea. " To Revise Bill So the Senate committee has tie-, cided to revise Us bill merely making It the "sense of Congress" that men with mere than three dependents should not be Inducted under the draft act if they pan show their dependent, families miRht suffer hardship. Actual discharges for hardship it men already on duty who have more than three dependents -~ Inchulli National Guardsmen and reserves would be left up to secretaries of I! Army, Navy and Air Force or con manding officers. The Senate committee made «i other change in the hill. Allowance i would date from July I—shortly nl ter the Korean war started—to cov «r nil men called to duty since the or In service at that time. Originally the administration sttgr fested that the family allowance «t»rt Sept. 1 but that they be date, beck to cover August. Original Request The original administration re quest would have cost an estl mated $294.000.000 for the yea which ends next June 30. The cost of the Senate bill, which may be ready for debate next week la estimated at 1187.000.000. Dotl estimates are based on an assump Mon that the Rrmed forces tota will climb to 2,500,000 by next July 1 Bills being completed In both the Senate and House are based upon an existing system of specla monthly allowances for living quarters—If not supplied by the government—now paid to the top three grades among enlisted personnel of •U service.?. The bills would extend these 'quarters allowances" —or varying sizes—down through all seven enlisted grades, tncludius recruits, privates, and privates tirst class In the Army and corresponding grades tn the other services.
