McNama- ra said Thursday night that if the military assistance program is cut Ihe United Stales will have two alternatives expand America's armed forces or "re- trench its foreign policy." The choice, he added, is up to Congress. Past appropriations by Con- gress significantly below the amounts requested by the exec- utive branch "have made a shambles out of the military as- sistance planning Mc- Namara declared. Foolhardy Policy He said it would be foolhardy for the United States to spend billion a year on its own de- fense forces but refuse lo help those of ils allies who are the forward defenses for the free word. "It is nonsense (o forge a strong horseshoe without strong horseshoe McNamara said. Fresh from testifying before congressional committees on the need for foreign aid, he carried his plea in an address pre- pared for delivery to the Na- tional Industrial Conference Board. Houso Actioa McNamara pointed a verbal finger at Congress and the pub- lic, saying that last year Presi- dent John F. Kennedy had asked for billion, in military assis- tance appropriations, but Con gress cut it lo a billion dollars President Johnson, in Janu ary of this year, "after taking account of the mood of Congress and the asked for only billion for the coming fisca year, McNamara said. Ending of aid to economically sufficient countries is justified he said, but reductions Uia have taken place in the assis tance program !'go well heyom those warranted by the worli situation."

So far the cadet is winning, >ul a final decision is yet to ome. Secretary of the Army Steph- en Alles, threatened wilh con- tempt of court action, ordered West Point officials to reinstate Cadet John H. Dunmar, 21, ef- fective as of 10 a.m. Thursday. That was the deadline set by U.S. Disl. Judge Edward Cur- ran at a hearing on a temporary injunction against Ihe cadet's ousler. Curran Is expected to rule Monday on whether to maXe the injunction permanent. Dunmar of Anaheim, Calif., was due to graduate in June when he was expelled for de- liberalely deceiving another per son, which is Army's defini lion of "quibbling." The Army said Dunmar mis led academy officials by leav Ing the Infirmary and going lo his quarters long enough to get credit for serving confinement for a previous minor Infraction. He was In Ihe infirmary recov- ering from an Illness and said he wanlod to go to his quarters to gtt jome He was in his quarters when Ihe duly officer made his inspec- tion and thus received confine- ment credit, which he couid not get while In the infirmary. When the duty officer learned Dunmar was supposed to have been in the Infirmary, the cadet was brought up on charges. In ordering Dunmar's rein- statement, Alles made clear he had not changed his opinion In the case. In a letter to Maj. Gen. J. B. Lamperl, superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy, Alles said: "I have no choice but to jrequest you to return Cadet Dunmar to the rosier of cadels, lo resume his pay and allow- ances and to permit him to wear the uniform of the Corps of Ca- dets until further word from me." At West Point, the public in- formation officer said Dunmar had been restored lo full status as a cadet, "In compliance with Instructions received from the secretary of the Army." Although the Army contends Dunmar was officially separated from the academy last week, he was allowed lo start his final examinations pending Ihe out- come ot his suit for relnslale- ment. ;
