Lease Wires i CITY GLOBEGAZETTE HOME EDITION that makes all North I o wans MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY MARCH 23 1962 neighbors 10c a Paper Consists of Two SectionsSection Ono No 37 1 A phony in j war over I the RS70 JFK holds the key By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON As Intel lectually convinced as Rep Carl Vinson DGa and Secre tary of Defense Robert S Me Namara may be of the right ness of their own positions there are certain threedollar bill aspects of the debate be tween the House Armed Serv ices Committee and the Peata gon over the RS70 airplane once known as the B70 Chairman Vinson says Con gress has no desire to run the Defense Department and that he just wants to sit at the table and get across the idea occasionally Yet his com mitteesreport stipulates that the Secretary of the Air Force isdirected ordered mandated and required to utilize to the full amount all the money Congress votes for the RS70 Secretary McNamara is not going into the issue thus pre sented He simply says the RS70 will be obsolete before it is in production The President likewise has avoided a direct clash with Vinson I think that we should wait until the Congress has acted and the Appropriations com mittees have acted and then we can make a much better judgment as to what the final situation will be But it is a mat ter which I am confident or I am very hopeful can be ad justed satisfactorily1 Kennedy has said What Vinson jMcNamaraand Kennedy for vari ious reasons arc not saying is that there is no way Congress can force the Executive Branch to spend money it doesnt want to spend The Constitution gives Congress the power to raise and support but no where gives it the power to select weapons Nor docs the Defense Reorganization Act of 1958 That measure indeed gives the Secretary of Defense author ity to assign or reassign weapons systems development to one or more branches of the armed services and tightens nis authority over unified mil itary commands To give it through Congress however the Eisenhower administration had to withdraw a provision that would have had all defense ap propriated directly to the Secre tary of Defense mu in everv 1347 has voted the Defense De partment more than it was asked This has not always been spent of course Back in 1949 the Truman administration re commended that the Air Force be continued at a 48combat group level The House voted million more than had been asked for a 58group force The money was impounded and not spent Truman in 1950 canceled the first Forrestal big carrier against the wishes of Congress In 1958 Congress added some million to the budget estimate for the Polaris pro gram but only about half the increase was spent in the fol lowing year President Eisen hower also balked at spending funds appropriated to prevent reductions in strength levels of the Army and Marine Corps Numerous other examples ex tending into the Kennedy ad ministration could be cited Vinson until now has been a faithful backer of John F Ken nedy He was one of the few Southerners who voted to en large the Rules Committee last year And ironically his was the deciding vote last year in a committee decision not to ex pand the B70 program Moreover what Vinson lacks in authority he has aplenty in power and influence in fluence that the administration will sorely need when its medi care trade and other import ant programs come before the House Thats why the result in this partly phony war over the RS70 was a compromise a graceful compromise Kennedy has agreed to re study the RS70 program but at the same time making it plain he will make the final decision on the mailer DEPENDING HER daughter of a Columbia University professor plays on a rubble heap in front of the battlements of the midManhattan

making its move in Algiers Another clash at Geneva Claims Russ plan Atests GENEVA AP Secretary of State Dean Rusk accused the So viet Union Friday of blocking a nuclear test ban treaty while pre sumably planning a new series of atomic weapon explosions Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A Gromyko sharply denied the charge and blamed the United States for the failure to reach agreement on a test ban The clash came in the 17nation disarmament conference when the United States Britain and the So viet Union reported collapse of their efforts to start new negotia tions on a test ban treaty Gromyko said the United States is to blame for the failure because it has scheduled a new series of atmospheric nuclear tests and does not want a test prohibition Rusk said President Kennedy had emphasized the United States would stop all tests if the Soviet Union would sign a treaty with ef fective controls against cheating Kennedy has ordered the tests to start in late April unless such a treaty is signed Gromyko renewed the Soviet charge that the West wants to set up an espionage system He brushed aside Rusks charge of new Soviet test plans by saying it was a pretext to cover known American test plans Rusk said the Russians three to four years ago had approved sci entific plans for international in spection to police a test ban The ban is no less urgent now than it was in 1958 he said He declared the Soviet spy charge had no ra tional basis because the proposed inspection system could not be used that way Neel Hill to seek post held by H R Gross WEBSTER CITY Hill 40yearold
