Haaklnson WASHINGTON, March 23, OP}—A new Senate-House price supports compromise ran into heavy criticism, today from Northern Senators To President By McCarthy WASHINGTON, March 23 (AP)— Senator McCarthy (R- Wis) today accused President Truman of endangering the nation's security by what he called the President's "arrogant refusal" to release gov eminent loyalty files to Senate investigators. Actually, Mr. Truman has not thus far refused to turn the files over to the Senate foreign relations subcommittee which is looking into McCarthy's charges that Communists ;md fellow travelers have infiltrated the State Department. Approval Considered High White House sources have said the president Is considering approval or limited access to the loyalty records of jxirsons whom McCarthy has accused. A ; key Democratic senator termer! McCarthy's criticism of Mr. Truman "such * lowly attack that I can't think ol a fitting reply." He withheld use of hi* name, but added: . . ' . •....'• "Let the American people be tile judge of Hint, kind of criticism of the President of tht United States." Senator Tydlngs (D-Mdi, chairman or the inquiry committee.

March 23. (/P)— The U. S. military forces arc cm- barking upon 3 huge building program at bases outside the continental United states, especially In Alaska. This can be seen (rom the fact that they propose to spend on these bases about $239,409,000 of the $665,000,000 they are asking Congress to authorize for military public works. An analysis of the requests shows that the army, navy and air force arc Joining In the major objective. The Idea is to safeguard the United States from a sudden "sneak punch," possibly with fllomlc weapons. Will Strengthen Range The announced bases that will be strengthened range from Alaska lo Okinawa, Hawaii, Kwajalcln and Johnston Island in the Pacific to Bermuda In the Atlantic,'up to Labrador, over to the Azores; Libya and Saudi Arabia. In January tlie Senate approved a military public works bill of slightly less than SSOO.OOO.OOO. This Ls about what the armed services had requested last year. Congress delayed action after singling out for separate authorization 5115.000,000 lor housing In Alaska and Okinawa. Last week the three military branches appeared before the house armed services committee during its hearings on the Senate bill. The millUry brought In amendments totaling $187.144,000, Including new projects and stepping up amounts previously requested. The House committee Is exncctwl to approve the amended Senate bill tomorrow. If passed by the House, It'.Will go to conference with the Senate. , ,. •' Alaska fo Bristle Alaska apparently Is to be made Into a bristling air defense fortress.

The Air Force proposes to spend about $43,637,000 for such Items as units of the radar "fence," long- range weather stations and highly secret "Interceptor stations" capable of eavesdropping on messages 1,000 to 2,000 miles away. The army has requested $74,224,000 to strengthen troop bases that will defend these secret installations and the air fields from which fighters and bombers would rise to ward off attack or to retaliate. Storage Space Sought Included In these amount* arc requests by both services for funds to build storage facilities for aviation gasoline and jet fuels.
