Rebuke for Carl Vinson WASHINGTON Armed Services Committee re belled against its chairman Tues day and voted to send a watered down version of President Eisen howers compulsory military re serve plan

compulsory re servists to the National Guard It also eliminates universal military training features that were in the subcommittees original bill Vinson told the committee he must insist that we have some action immediately on his com promise The leadership of the House is anxious to have it acted on he said The leadership plan was to take it up in the House Thursday he said This is a watereddown

active military duty and would result in a more virile better trained re serve than the original plan which included six months train ing for the predraft age youths The bill now goes to the Brooks
