MONDAT, DECEMBER 21, 195S BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIT! Demo Senators Seek Merits in Ike's Program They Want to Be Convinced Before Lending Support (Continued from Page I) ments." Monroney Criticizes Appea-ing last night on a Du Mont television program, Monroney joined Sen. Kefauver (Di 1 Tenn) in criticism of the administration for not including Democrats in the talks on legislative plans and for what Monroney called refusal of Republican lead ers to make public the proposals they worked out. Monroney said announcement 1 made after the sessions gave the impression of "press agentry" anc a "snow job" on the public. Sen. Duff <R-Pa) and Rep. Hope (R-Kan) on the same program praised the Republican proposal, as "liberal and constructive." In a final announcement on the legislative discussions Saturday, Eisenhower said the program will be based on the 1952 Republican platform. He said the test of foreign policy would be: "Dtes it advance the Interests of America?" The domestic program, he con- tinud,- would assure the people "that they can depend on this administration to protect the security, the welfare and the economic stability of each individual citizen." Monroney commented, "We'd like to be in on the takeoff as Well as the crash. The advice is all coming from one party." Would Cut Army Iruormea sources reported dur- l Ing the weekend that Eisenhower has tentatively approved military budget revisions that would mean reducing the strength of the Army to about 1,165,000 men by July 1, 1955, compared with present strength of a little under Hfc million. The recommendations were said to envisage reductions in manpower for all the armed services except the Air Force, which would be allowed to expand -during the next two years from the present strength of a little over 930,000 to about 970,000. Rep. W. Sterling Cole (R-NY), chairman of the Senate-House CommLltee on Atomic Energy, said last night he thought Congress would relax the secrecy on atomic matters now required by law enough to help U. S. allies and further the President's plan for an international information and materials pool to develop peacetime applications of nuclear energy.
