(Staff Photo by Jimmy Parsons) PAGE ONE [By Katharyn Duff] By KATHARYN DUFF Reporter-News Assistant Editor WASHINGTON Defense spending takes roughly half of the federal budget, Cong, peorge Mahon of Colorado City jfend Lubbock, who heads the Military Appropriation subcom- jnittee of the House, the panel which drafts the giant spend- ing measures, said Tuesday. But, 'Cong.' Mahon s-a-ys, ''Don't put the major blame inr the increased costs of fed- Ira! government on defense." Non defense federal spend- ing; has increased much more rapidly even in this era of cost- weapons, he said. Cong. Mahon shepherded through the House late last Week the new military spend- ing bill, and it is a whopper. (Final vote on the bill, 388-0) It calls for billion for the Army, Navy, Air Force and all the rest of the defense community. Mahon calculates this repre- sents per man, woman and child in the nation. It's the largest peacetime appropriation bill in the history of the U. S. government, billion larger than for the cur- rent fiscal year, he pointed out. But, Mahon repeated, don't blame defense spending for all the rise in government costs. "There is a tendency on the part of many Americans in and out of government to feel, more or less, that high taxes, big government spending and the increase in the ceiling on the national debt are the result of defense spending. "That is not Mahon declared. "We should not give ourselves an opiate and lay all our prob- lems at the door of defense spending; we must have de- fense and we must pay, and ,pay in very large sums, for Vdefense. And, insofar as I know, tlji: American people al m o s t ufaniraously support a high lev- el defense program." Mahon has prepared an an- alysis of government costs to prove his contention that de- Troops Massing For Oran Action By ANDREW BOROW1EC .Oran, Algeria Troop rein- began to mass on the of rebellious Oran Tues- break the resistance of the settlers.

He includes in "d e f ense spending" the Defense Appro- priation Bill, by all odds the largest item, and costs of Se- lective Service, of stockpiling end defense production, of mili- jtary construction, military for- aid and of the Atomic Energy Commission. He .takes as a basis for com- parison fiscal year 1954 which began on July "just aft- er the Korean War was ovfer. Defense spending increased from 1954 to 1961, the last year completed, by 1 per cent, Mahon says. Non defense federal spend- in the same period increas- ed 65 per cent. If you extend the comparison through the 1962 fiscal year which ends next June 30, de- fense spending will have in- creased 9 per cent and non-de- fense spending 85 per cent, Mahon said. Project this through fiscal year 1963 and defense spending will be 12 per cent above 1954 and non defense spending 94 per cent above non defense spending in 1954, he holds. "In other words, the govern- ment has held, since the Korean War, a rather even level of spending in defense. But non defense spending has ;one up Mahon says. During the long debate last week over the military spend- ng bill, Mahon had to fight off repeated attempts by fel- ow House members to readjust some of the measure. (None tried to reduce the bill.) Mahon enjoyed particularly one piece of by play between himself and Rep. Gross, Republican rom Iowa. The lowan complained that the defense establishment is wasting money on some re- search projects. He brought up the matter of sparrows. In a certain Navy project, Gross said, 300 sparrows were shipped from San Jose, Calif., .0 Baton Rouge, La., painted red and green and re- eased as a Navy research proj- 'Can the gentleman tell me what on earth we are doing spending money as a Navy re- search project to paint and re- ease sparrows around over :he country? How are painted sparrows going to con- ;ribute to the defense of the United Mahon says the question was one for which he had no ready answer. "I didn't know why on earth :he Navy moved sparrows from San Jose to Baton Rouge and painted he says rueful-. But a reply of sorts came to the Texan's mind, "1 do not the details of the sparrow he told Grots, "but I do know that a bird hi the ii worth two In the bush."

District Judge Owen Thomas, under whose supervision the grand jury had been convened and to whom the grand jury returned a written report critical of sheriff's office records and prosecution de- lays by the courts, but no indict- ments, said: "The only .comment I make is that the proceedings and testimony before a grand jury, un- der the law, are required to be secret. 'Nobody Authorized' "Nobody has been authorized by this court to divulge or circulate the testimony or proceedings be- fore the grand jury. That's the only comment I have." Controversy centered on testi- mony and proceedings of the Feb- ruary and March special investi- gation by a 104th grand jury. The special probe was announced by 104th District Attorney Tom Todd as one, related to some alleged activities concerning the Taylor County Sheriff's office and Abilene City Police Department. However, before the probe end- ed, it was extended to every coun- ty office, according to grand jury officials. There were no indictments re- turned from the investigation BET: ATTY.

A tornado funnel spun a threat- ening path 13 miles east-southeast of Abilene. Rains of up to one inch at Haskell fell in the region. A severe weather forecast alerted a goodly part of the section, but hap- pily passed without incident. Possible scattered showers are indicated for Thursday but no Wednesday rain is forecast. The funnel was spotted about noon Tuesday by Shannon Teal, meteorologist with the U. S. Weather Bureau here, and by about 15 persons at the Abilene. Municipal Airport. Teal said the funnel dipped out of the clouds and whirled above sparsely settled land for nine minutes before lift- ing into the clouds. Teal said it apparently never touched ground. The weather bureau put out severe weather alert for possibljj tornadoes, hail and high eastern Taylor County, and Shackelford counties noon until 3 p.m. There were other reports of tornadoes, wind or hail Tuesday afternoon..
