The bill would raise service pay »n average of 14 per cent. Individual raises would range from nbout three per cent for the sixth enlisted grade to almost 50 per cent for generals and admirals. The total cost of the increase.; has been estimated at $440,OCO,OCO a year by a civilian commission which recommended the raises. The President's letter said "preliminary studios" indicate the bill would cost 4690,000,000 a year. It added that "some way must he found to'bring this cost down to meet budget requirements." Mr. Trumau did not say who made the study that resulted' In the higher figure. His budget for the year beginning July i sets up $400,0:0,000 for military pay raises.
