West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, declared in Bonn he was' "happy thai. Ihe United States has resolutely taken over the leadership of the West." West Berlin morning newspapers remade their late editions lo carry long excerpts from the address. A typical headline was the Morgcnposl's "Kennedy prepared to do everything for Berlin's freedom." The speech came loo late for editorial reaction in most European capitals, but the liberal Le Matin of Anhverp, Belgium, commented: "This speech means above all that Ihe United Stales wants lo fully assume its duties as leader of the Western world. Kennedy clearly expressed the American determination to lake the diplomatic initiative back from the U.S.S.IL" First Communist reaction was bitter. The official East German news agency, ADN, asserted that Kennedy deliberately distorted Soviet proposals for relieving the Berlin tension. "He also failed totally to men tion the danger to the peace of Europe posed by West.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP)—President Kennedy asked Congress today for $;i.r> billion in new defense funds. to re-enforce the nation's military might in preparation for a showdown with Russia over Berlin. Following up a declaration Tucs- ay night that Ihe United States defend Berlin with force if Russians try to drive out the Veslern powers, Kennedy sent a icssagc to Congress today asking ir :i 117,000 man increase in the at ion's regular armed forces, lie already had announced thai e was ordering draft, calls "doll- led and tripled"- so that, as many s '24,000 young men u monlU nay soon be going into uniform, 'he July call was for 11,000 men.

This would bring the leital uskccl or the Defense Department mill- ary operations for the present •iscnl year up lo $47,r>07,1111,000.
