SUNDAI Breaking Up Disturbance At Thecater T|a|||||0|| Asks Billions More For Defense Additional Request Handed To Congress; Awaited Since April Washington, May 13—(TP)— President Truman today for-marally asked Congress for $2,434,441,000 more for America’s defense program. Congress has been expecting it since April I, when the President said military requirements had been boosted since his March 17 message to Congress urging a draft, I universal military training and expanded armed forces. He said the new program would cost about $3 000.000.-,000 more than the original budget estimate foi the armed forces.' This first estimate, made in January, was around $11.000.000 000. Today's request for $2,434,441,-000. plus the $725,000,000 asked for airplanes recently, plus a request for authority to enter into defense, contracts totalling $40,000,000 bring to $3,199,441,000 the addi-; jtional money asked for defense since January. Estimates Rise It brings the total defense estimates to over 14 billions for the fiscal year beginning July I. Mr. Truman, in a letter to Speaker Martin, said military ex- ‘ penditures must be considered in J connection with their effect on thej national economy, and that a close watch would be kept on such j spending.

May 13—(JP—State intervention in the two-day old strike of 75,000 Chrysler Corp. employes loomed today as battle lines were drawn for a long siege. Gov. Him Sigler said he planned to “inject” himself into the dispute as soon as officers of the company and the CIO United Auto Workers have “a chance to cool off.” Bargaining on the union’s (demand for a 30-cent hourly pay boost was broken off Tuesday after heated all-dav sessions. There have been no peace gestures from either side since i then. Chrysler workers present average wage is $1.50 an hour. The governor disclosed that he, personally, was considering med-I iation of the strike.
