The businessmen's planning organization, In a special report forecast that 'total defense outlays may zoom to a rate ot $30,000.000,000 or 435,000.000,000 annually a year from now. CED 'said It can be handled on a non-inflationary, pay-as-you-go basis if swift measures are taken, and offered a five-point plan of sction. on Congress to pass It called promptly the stalled mobilization net, and President Truman's $5,000,000,000 tax boost as a "roughly adequate first step"; on the treasury to stnrt a major savings bond drive by Thanksgiving; and on the administration to stash non-military spending.
