By RICHARD SPONG Editorial Research Bureau EDITORS NOTE A House Armed Services subcommit tee heded by Rep F Edward Hebert DLa on Monday be gms hearings on the callup and the proposed reorganiza tion of Army reserves WASHINGTON A first rule of Pentagon politics is that mil itary manpower reserves pro grams have to be treated gingerly There is good reason for this Reserves organizations the Na tional Guard Association of the United States in particular are in a position to exert strong polit ical pressures on Congress The National Guard has a long standing reputation as one of the best politically protected organiza tions in the country It has units and equipment in more than 2200 communities Its activities and payrolls are a welcome supple ment to local economies Gover norsof the states are jealous of their authority over Guard units while m reserve status The Re serve Officers Association may Jack the pressure power of the National Guard Association but its voice is listened to with re spect on Capitol Hill There are some of the reasons why the administrations proposal announced April 4 to eliminate four National Guard and four Army Reserve divisions in a 58 000man cutback pi the nations trained civilians is in for a going over The Guard would be pared from 400000 men to 365000 and the Reserves from 300000 to 277000men This is an even deeper cut than had been proposed in President Kennedys budget message this year That document suggested a reduction of Army reserve com ponets in paiddrill status by 31 000 men President Eisenhower was unsuccessful in efforts to get the strength level cut back by only 30000 men Administration proposal in volves the interests of the gover nors of 21 states in which these Guard units are situated and a number of these already have pro tested to Washington Rep Carl Vinspn DGa chairman of the House Armed Services Committee on April 5 said that he would re serve judgment until a subcom mittee investigating the reserves gets all the facts But Rep James E Van Zandt sen ior Republican on Vinsons com mittee predicted that the cut would be rejected Already resis tance has been encountered in hearings of a Senate Defense Ap propriations subcommittee The timing of the Pentagon pro posal appears dubious It came just as a House subcommittee under Rep F Edward Hebert DLa was about to oper its long threatened investigation of the much debated callup of reservists last October to meet the Berlin crisis Now Rep Heberts group has two targets The Army in February admitted error in the assignment of 38827 men called to active duty to fill undermanned reserve and Na tional Guard units Most of the complaints which have been aired in the press came from these fillers but other reservists are still restive A General Accounting Office survery of 5000 Army reservists called up last fall was made pub lic on April 9 It indicated that less than half were placed in the same type of job they had held on previous active duty tours Ironically the Reserve Forces Act of 1955 was expressly written to avoid the kind of military double jeopardy complained about by reservists who feel they were mustered into active duty needlessly Reds face tough alcoholism fight NEW YORK nations are having problems with they have de nounced in the past as a purely capitalist National Council on Alcoholism was told R Brinkley

competitive developments today and all other current circum stances including the removal of a serious obstacle to proper relations between government and business This decision of Big Steel came after Bethlehem Steel Corp the nations second big gest producer had announced it was calling off the price boost Both firmsacted after Inland Steel and Kaiser Steel refused to go along and raise their prices at this time It was a resounding victory for Kennedy who had thrown all the resources of his admin istration against the plans of the steel giants to raise prices Since Tuesday night when US Steel made its original an nouncement the industry has found itself faced with a grand jury investigation for possible antitrust violations a maneuver by the administration Friday to switch steel procurement to firms which did not raise prices and bitter public denunciation by government officials from Kennedy downward Following the lead of US Steel eight of the socalled big 11 steel companies announced that they too would raise prices Then Friday in the face of the administration opposition one major company Bethlehem said it was rescinding its hike Another company said that it did not plan an increase at this time Big Steels decision came only 24 hours after board chairman Roger Blough had defended the price hike But Blough acknowledged in his New York news conference Thursday that the big firms might not be able to maintain the hike if some of the other in dustry members did not go along Inland and Kaiser then de cided they would not join the others and the die was cast Then
