That outline of the augmented force emerged today In the release of testimony by defense officials on president Truman's request for * $10.500,000,000 supplemental appropriation, to be added to the regular funds for the current year. The Army will get this: another combat division, to bring the number of such units to 11; two additional replacement training divisions to be added to four now in operation. A House appropriations committee was given this picture of how the Army was under strength at the start of the Korean war: there were 10 divisions, but with the exception of two, they were 'considerably below" the organizational table for peacetime strength. far Kast Short In the Par East command, each Obituaries Fronk T.
