VOLUME 50, NO. 173 FIVE CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 9, 1950 SIXTEEN PAGES Johnson May Quit Cabinet Before November Elections By Ernest B. Vacca.ro close ad- viser to President Truman said today thai Louis Johnson is on his way out as secretary of de- fense. This administration confi- dant, who declined io be quot- ed by name, said that John- jjon may step oct before the general election in November. This report lacked any offi- cial confirmation from the White House or Defense depart- ment, in fact the current feel- TODAY- Defense May Cost 50 Billions ing in Congress is that the President is still sticking by his defense secretary. Johnson lias been the target of a swelling flood of criticism from congressmen and other sources. This reached its bitter- est pitch last weekend when Represenativc Tauriello (D.-N. Y in a second demand for Johnson to quit, said he un- derstood Johnson helped force tin: late Defense Secretary James Forrestal out of office. And only yesterday the Ma- rine corps league adopted a resolution calling for Johnson's removal. Mr. Truman has vigorously defended Johnson on more than one occasion. Howevfr, some White House aides said the President has been increasingly concerned over persisting; reports of dif- ferences between Johnson aofi Secretary of State Acheson. One daily confidant of the President said that while Mr. Truman will defend to the lim- it an, appointee from outside attack he is because of published reports of defense department criticisrr of the secretary of state. this you may be one White House aide said, "the President feels that Sec- retary of State Acheson has borne up ia this case with su- preme dignity and will remain in the cabinet after Johnscn has gone." How long Johnson will stay on the job, this source said, is the only question. He added that he may step out sooner than rnost people realize. By Stewart Alsop 1 Washington How much are we! really going to spend for defense I For weeks now, the National curitv council has been wrestling with Ciis lif e-and-death issue. Much of the spadework has been done by Ambassador-at-Large Philip Jes-j sup and Air Force Secretary Thorn-1 as Finletter, who have been meet-j insr almost daily with the other i deputies of the N.S.C. And as ev- week has passed since the at tack on Korea, the estimates of de- fense spending have increased At first it was thought that to would suffice. TSiis was quick- ly uppea to the level incorporated! In President Truman's request, to Congres? From this level the estimates climbed to then to And It now appears likely that the total of defense spending for the next fiscal year may climb, in au- thorization requests, well over and perhaps as high as What has happened, of course, Is very simple.

The Neville boy stated that he managed to pull Jamer, from the water and then began to climb back up the steps believjns that the Leicht child was following fcim. i About halfway up the manhole, however, Dennis looked below and 'noticed that James had slipped back into the water.
