Kennedy bundled up his ideas in a transportation message and sent it, off to Congress. He ignored former President Dwight D, Eisenhower's recommendation for creation of a government depart- ment of transportation. The million would be only a first installment, spread over three years, to be given to public agencies They would put up some partially matching funds and use the combined federal-local money for "the Walker Continues Charges In Senate Probe Testimony WASHINGTON A.

Meanwhile, the Army braced for a salvo 'of objections from another of some of the 21 states affected. Rep. Durward G. Hall, R-Mo., predicted the plan would touch off a major battle in congress. He said it was another example of the administration's "flaunting the will of the Congress." Rep. James E. Van Zandt, R-Pa., said "they've tried to do this before and we stopped them." Van Zandt says he feels sure this will happen again.' Reorganization Rep. Melvin R. R-Wis., said .he hoped Congress would be able to prevent the action, which the 'Army announced late Wednes- day as part of a major reorgani- zation scheme .designed' to build a trim, trained and ready to fight Reserve and Guard. The plan contemplates reorgan- izing much of the .manpower in the four Guard and four Reserve divisions into eight more flexible brigades- of between and men1'each. Many units now part of the divisions would be as- signed to support the regular Army, if needed. Although the Army avoided the term officers ac- knowledged that would be the practical effect.

Priority Units At the same time, the Army plans a six-division force of pri- ority National Guard divisions that would be ticketed for early call-up in an emergency to back up the 16-regular Army divisions: These first-ranked outfits would be kept at 75 to 80 per cent of their ..authorized strength, which will total about when their structure is .revamped. Most of them now number only about men. On Active Duty The Army did not name the pri- ority but they are ex- pected to 'include the 26th Infan- try of Massachusetts, the 28th In- fantry of Pennsylvania, the 32nd Infantry of 'Wisconsin and the 49th .Armored of Texas. The 32nd and 49th now are on active duty and are the best trained .and equipped of all the Guard divisions. The 26th and 28th were picked 'last fall as the next to be called if needed in the Berlin crisis. They have been built to nearly 100 per cent of strength and have'been outfitted with much new equipment. If the plan goes through, it will reduce the Guard divisions to 23 and Reserve divisions to six. Question There was some.question as.to whether Congress could block the reorganization, since it could be achieved '-within authorized man- power -limits. The Kennedy administration has proposed cutting total paid drill strength in'the Guard and Reserve by to a new total of These cuts would not come out of the eight divisions but out of some units.
