Vinson told »; reporter h* hopes the house armed services committee which he heads will prod the armed services Into "screening" their organized reserves. His object Is to weed out all those not available to fill a uniform when needed—even If they are Congressmen, Industrialists, prominent names. <. ' • , r He particularly wants the .services to set up a method to transfer reservists drawing drill pay to the inactive reserve unless they are available for service when called upon. "Why spend monef unless we know \vc are going to get men when we need them?" Vinson demanded yesterday of Air Force representatives. No System Kept He noted that Congress appropriates 5100,030,000 for n reserve training program. In questioning military representatives during the week he has developed that none of the services has a system by winch it can keep !nbs on a reservist's availability to serve If called. He noted that since signing up a man may have married, acquired •i number of dependents or moved into an essential job.

"What we want Is somebody'wh can do some ftghtmg—do som flying when needed," he said '"Let quit fooling ourselves that we hav £ot > big reserve^' 1 Vinson said what,really has ha| pened Is that the reserve '"has bee filled up with congressmen, feder employes; men in Industry, who you know in case of an emergenc you can't use." . . -. . - CHOW ON TAG—It's hot ei- •ctly etiquette, but Cpl.
