Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 8, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North lowot Daily Newspaper for MASON GITY GLOBEGAZETTE VOL The Newspaper That Makes All North lowans Neighbors Associated Press United Press International Full Lease Wires MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY FEBRUARY 8 1940 7c Copy Tidj Paper ot Two Secflonifiecllon 1M Pressure grows for 24hour bomber vigil Money provided By ROWLAND EVANS JR V New York Herald Ntws Service WASHINGTON President Eisenhower has asked Con gress for extraordinary stand by spending powers to pro vide for the cost of an air borne alert with specific con gressional appropriations An unnoticed provision in the new defense budget now under study by House and Sen ate committees would give the President power to draw on all money balances in all three services upon determination that such action is neces sary The purpose of this un usual request is to afford Eisenhower the complete flex ibility he might need if inter national tensions heightened at atime that Congress was not in session The President told his news conference last sveek that he did not believe that any for eign power today could de stroy the retaliatory power of the United States In other words he said as of the pres ent time enough heavy bomb ers would be left after a first strike attack to retaliate very effectively against the ag gressor Despite this assurance the President is enough concerned to seek special standby spend ing powers to cover unforeseen events Critics of the President some of whom are now taking testimony from Air Force gen erals in the Senate Prepared ness Subcommittee contend that more than standby spend ing power is needed The pres ent B52 longrange bomber force they hold could be placed on a fullscale air alert for only a relatively brief time perhaps a month or so before equipment would begin to wear out and become unsafe from 24hour a day use An airalert would keep a propor tion of the Force in the air at all times to guarantee its surviveability in event of an enemy missile attack These critics who include Sen Dennis Chavez the Senates key man on mili tary appropriations will try to add at least tothc Presidents budget request to hasten the job of stockpiling spare parts against the time that an air nlerl might be or dered Eisenhower has asked less than million for this item known in Air Force circles as the ontheshelf airalert Sen Chavez the chairman of the Senate Military Appro priations Subcommittee said in an interview that he person ally would support at least million for the ontheshclf stockpile and perhaps more The only question in my mind is whether we can afford to lake a said Rep George Motion D the Chairman of the House Military Appropriations Subcommittee appeared somewhat less inclined than Sen Chavez to plump for a significant increase I have never been keen to vote a lot of money that the Executive then refuses to spend he said He described the standby spending request as the broadest kind of power I know of It was he in fact who first wrote this provision into the present military de fense budget He described the Presidents decision to seek a 12month extension as very significant and predicted Congress would approve it One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KGLO 1300 pm Sunday WOI Ames pm Tuesday WTAD Qulncy 9X0 pm Thuri WSUI lowm

outcome of the present controversy isnt difficult to forecast in my opin ion The die is cast The struggle under way in Algeria in recent weeks has been strictly between French men For the time being
