COME and WATCH The FIGHTS Every WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY NIGHTS i "ii mm Hoover Commission Urges More Monev for Research . . WASHINGTON <.*>-The Hoover commission, altering its familiar economy theme, today urged more federal spending, bigger staffs and better pay in research programs, ooth military and civilian. The commission in effect scolded Secretary of Welfare Hobby and the Budget Bureau, an arm of the White House, for not seeKing funds to carry out "23 approved research projects at the National Institutes of Health in the coming year. And the 12-member commission headed by former President Hoover offered proposals for mili tary reorganization which it said might increase the effectiveness of weapons research by 25 percent in five years. May Be Too Lat* Even this, it said, "may be loo slow. . . to maintain our leadership in weaponry." The commission report continued : "Pioneering in intercontinental ballistic missies, the maturing technology of shorter range missiles, the needs for greater effec tiveness in continental defense, tne ■ opportunities for major improvements in all military electronics j . . . for example, combine in pre- i senting the Department of Defense with an increasing volume of research and development opportunities and demands. ; "It would be false and dangerous economy to hold the. research unci development appropriations a: a level too low to permit a volume of effort in areas of opportunity for new and improved weaponry." Voice Concern As for the backlog of 723 research projects approved for work at the National Institutes of Heat'.h the commission voiced concern over this "apparent failure of -the executive branch" to appraise Congress of the S',400, 00 needed. The omission " may indicate a tendency to de-emphasize basic and medical research." the report said, whereas actually such Jfou'W £n/oy Trading at >4mei'„ =jrrrr«k^ search deserves "greater federal support." Pointing out such "dramatic results'' as the development of the Salk polio vaccine and progress in the fields of cancer, mental dis-easee and the other fields, the commission told Congress: "We must make sure of general j support to this field which daily I demonstrates such potential bene- j fits for mankind." The commission also held that i U. S. weapons development is "not j sufficiently daring and imagina- j five" hi its approach to "radically ! new weapons and weapons svs- ■ terns." It said most of the maior ! accomplishments have been in- i spired hy the "informal prod-' dings" of civilian scientists. j Raps Military Most of the 50-page report was ■ devoted to recommended reorgani- ; zation within the military estab- \ lishment to eliminate duplicating j efforts by the Army, Navy and i Air Force, and to strengthen the I military research and development staffs both in quality and numbers. It proposed also that the armed forces gradually transfer to colleges, nonprofit institutions and in-dustrial concerns much of the research now done directly by the j government. Work costing 125 jnil-;l:on dollars a year might ad-ivantageously be shifted, the re- THIS BEAUTIFUL ort said. The report was based on a study iv a task force subcommittee eadec by Dr. Mervin J. Kelly, resident of Bell Telephone Lab-ratories. Inc. It disclosed that S.000 projects are under way in the federal research program which will cost 52.050,000.000 in the next fiscal year. Military outlays are estimated at about $1,400,000,000. There are at least 18 distinct varieties of cheese, and more than 400 different kinds of these var- 8 ENDS TONITE Open 7:00 — Stort$ Dusk PC.
