• f THURSDAY, JANUARY 26, 1950 SLYTHEVTLLE (AUK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE I Selective Service Still Hangs Fire House Committee Pondering 3-Year Draft Extension WASHINGTON, Jan. 26. Wj President Truman and his military chiefs aerccti yesterday to a plan lo leave peacetime draft Inductions,up to Congress if the President Is Riven the power to act In an emergency. Secretary of Defense Johnson relayed the views or the President and the Joint chiefs of staff lo the House Armed Services Committee. The group |$ considering; nn admln- rat Eon refmcs t lor a three-year tetistan of the selective service k\v. Johnson's letter was made public as the committee heard pleas for continuing the draft \a\v from Gen. Omar N. Bradley, chairman of the joint chiefs; Secretary of State Acheson; and Gen, Lnwlon Collins, army chief ot .staff. Chairman Vinson fD-GfO, who Is opposed to continued conscription now, has suggested a "standby" draft, law to replace the selective service net expiring June 30. Mr. Truman had asked for Us continuance an it. That would mean that the military 1 services would have the authority to call up men if they need them. None has been Inducted for months. Against KmwRtnpy Provision Vinson wants a law on the books ti-nlch would give Congress sole power to re.sume Induction of se- lectees and tnen only by Joint' action of bo(h House and Senate. As Johnson's letter described it. the counter proposal would leave actual Inductions ol selectees (1) up to Congress. TT <2> "until such time as the President, after consultation with the National Security Council, shall make a finding that international conditions warrant the resumption of inductions." Johnson said that "will give us n workable .selective service act." Gen, Bradley told the committee that a draft act on the books "Is probably worth several divisions In added strength to our arguments •fcumd the council table." ""In fact, I have been informed that our passage of the selective service act two years ago had a more salutary effect on the Russians than almost anything we did. The failure .of renewal of this opposite effect on our opponents In act at this time can but have the the present cold war." Acheson urged extension of the law to show the world that this country Intends to stay strong. "WHAT'S NEW.
