THURSDAY, JANUARY «, BLYTHKVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAOB THKIBV Planned Military Cutbacks Due for Stiff Probe with Demos Controlling Congress By JAMES NARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — What does it profit to save, his money if he. can't protect it from an enemy? In a nutshell that's what many Democrats say they want to know about the cuts which President Eisenhower proposes for the armed forces. . His administration, particularly Secretary of Defense Wilson, is in for stiff quizzing by the Democrats who took control of Congress yesterday. Judging from what they've - said, they will ask: Is the administration, for the sake of economy, reducing the armed forces to a point where they can't protect this nation's interests? Sen. SparJcman (D-Ala) says he's afraid he's looking at "bargain- counter" defense. Sen. Mansfield (D-Mont) says he's afraid this country's vital military strength may be lost in the name of economy. And Rep. Vinson (D-Ga), who will head the House Armed Services Committee, says he will call Wilson before him for a full explanation. Started by Wilson It was Wil-son who started the ball rolling Dec. 20 with the announcement of a big reduction in the armed forces, particularly in ground troops. Why the cut? Less fear of war in part, Wilson told newsmen. This wasn't what Secretary of State Dulles told newsmen several days later when they asked if the military cuts were the result of less fear of war. That wasn't the reason, he said. He said improvement in weapons meant the military forces needed ' fewer men. This apparent conflict raised this question: If one said one thing, and one another, what was the real reason? Was it to save money? Reduction in ground .troops meant this country would be less able to throw in troops against the Communists if they attacked anywhere in the world. The United States might retaliate with air power but unless native troops were available to stem the Red assault where it occurred, air strikes might not be enough. Crisis Recalled The crisis in Indochina; fast year was recalled. The Communist-led Vietminh were trampling the French. There was danger they XEW NAZAREN'E PARSONAGE — This new parsonage of BJytbevjJle's Church of the Nazarene at 109 W.

George (D-Ga) said today he does not think, a Senate probe of a 1952 "cover" put on the mail of Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) turned up "anything the attorney general would regard as serious." George, who served on a special two-man committee which conducted the investigation last month, said he does not believe anything further will be done about the matter. McCarthy, in a separate interview, said he wants the matter referred to the Justice Department. He termed the check on his mail "a vicious violation of law." The special committee's report condemned the use of "mail covers" by any Senate committee and recommended that the Senate refer to the Justice Department the testimony it Look. However, the WILSON NEWS Mrs. Glen Wheeler might take all Indochina.

The explanation goes like this; M) This country must be ready to meet any form of aggression, since no one can predict how it will come; (2) this country must depend as much ns it can on new weapons and scientific defelopment in order to cut down on manpower and save lives; (3) this country must be able to retaliate fast a&atast any attack in order to-discourage such an attack in the first place; '4) sinre no one can foretell how long the cold war will last, keeping up the minimum necessary defense force will be a drain on the economy so expense must be spared where possible: i5i the j Man Claiming To Be Jesus Faces Charges NEW BRITAIN, Conn.
