Reliance on military Wisdom reaches new High in history by James Mario Washington be fore in the history of the coun try have the people had to de Pend so blindly on the military Wisdom of its leaders. The russians have atom bombs they May have Hydrogen bombs and the number of Theli troops under arms is impressive nevertheless the Eisenhower administration is planning to re Duce the manpower of u. S. Armed the exception of the air year and still further next year. The administration has two motives 1. A desire to keep Campaign promises by reducing expenses. 2. More Reliance on new weapons and the special teams and planes to deliver them. Since the Wisdom of these decisions May not be known for years it has to be assumed meanwhile that the. Military planners know what they Are doing. We Are told that scientific development of new weapons since world War ii has been astonish ing changing the old concepts of fighting a War. What the new developments Are what can be expected of them necessarily is known Only to the military peo ple the president his close advisers and the atomic experts. In the atomic Field the size and Power of the bombs Are not known by the Public. They can t even be imagined. Laymen Tow Only that they Are Many times More powerful than those dropped on Japan.
