FAY WASHINGTON Wl President Eisenhower recommended today a military outlay for the next fiscal year, with a shift in emphasis from foot soldiery to a "full exploitation of air power and modern weapons." The spending budget he proposed to Congress for the Defense De- partment is about four billion dol- lars less than that estimated for the current year, which ends June 30. Eisenhower said the budget is based on a "new concept lor our national security program." A substantial part of the sav- ings obviously would come in man- power, particularly Army man- power. The budget figures reflect an over-all reduction of about S.7 per cent in manpower for all the armed forces. Army personnel would be reduced by 17.3 per cent, and three divisions would be dropped from" the present 20. More Air Power Against 'the cutback in strength of the Army, in which Eisenhower was a five-star general, there was the President's emphatic advocacy of greater power in the air. He said the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps now have, among them, about planes. During the next three years, he said, this will be increased to neyed up from Washington over- 000, more than half of them jets.

He said a "new concept" of reliance upon air power and new weapons justifies a spending slash, most- ly from national security outlays. Despite the per cent spending cut under esti- mated outlays for this chief exe- cutive told Congress the government would wind up the next fiscal year nearly three bil- lion dollars in the red. Eisenhower cautioned against further general tax cuts, although he proposed a broad program of tax law changes. The budget for fiscal 1955, be- ginning next July 1, was the first prepared by a Republican admin- istration in 21 years. Throughout the massive docu- ment, Eisenhower, who has spent most of his life in the Army, em- phasized that his administration has made air power its chosen instrument of free world defense, with other services paying lesser ginning next July 1 will relate to wen a oae w n overturned their small landing craft. inai uuiicy. i T, ___ _ ____, roles. Congress members generally ap- plauded Eisenhower's budget cut- ting but some hoisted storm sig- nals over his proposals for high foreign aid spending and hiking the national debt limit.
