The figures in- iucie deductions ranging from (40 o 480 from the serviceman's month- y paycheck, the government put- ing up Ihe balance.

L«w- 1s B. Hershey rapped the armed services for being too choosey In selecting manpower. The Selective Service director said In a speech that nearly 60 per cent, of men now being called In (he draft are rejected as unfit for service. 'The armed forces are still laboring under the psychoses of the time when they required relatively few men and could pick and choose," Hershey said. The armed forces made no Imme- d'ate reply. U.

Most important government de- lion of a position of strength in these nations sufficient to deter Communist aggression. "The capabilities of the Communist movement for further acts of aggression must be the measuring rod by which we judge the adequacy of our defense strength. By this measure, it is evident that a forced- draft effort on a very large scale Is required." partments arid bureaus now are clustered in an area of a couple square miles along the Potomac Rivers banks. Part of 'the money Ihe President asked would go for highways and communications facilities. This is only Ihe first portion of what Mr. Truman called a. "long- range plan to insure the continuity of essential functions of government in event of emergency." About 40,000 federal workers would be accomoclated at the four proposed sites. Eventually it Is planned to have perhaps a dozen or more such federal agency centers ringing "-capital from a safe distance. With the Courts Chancery: Sally Davis vs. William H.
