C Cut May n Defense Spending leduee Armed Forces By WILLIAM BEECH1' In the latest round of Penla- NIW York Timii NI.I sinici'gon budget cutting, areas being WASHINGTON __ in addition lo troop on administration incl.ude: Planners are slimmed down artnjery in Vietnam and of mitmenls and the kinds of de-ense reductions that might flow from a reassessment ot national priorities, i series of unexpected circumstances has driven the administration to slice sharply nto the defense budget even be-ore the study process has been completed. .Rising interest rates have orced payments on the na-ional debt, unusually good growing weather has increased farm subsidy payments and Increasing hospitalization ccsts have affected veterans' benefits and medicare. The Nixon administration in-lerited a defense spending budget of billion for the current fiscal year, which slarted July administration, in two announced cuts, reduced this by about billion. Now the Pentagon is under pressure to cut about (2 billion more. Some of Ihe ground work for cutting down the cost of defense was done during Ihe Johnson administration In long range, post-Vietnam studies. The five-year budget plan worked out in the last days of the Johnson sdmlnistr a t i o n looked toward cutting the size of the armed forces from J.5 million men to 2.6 million men, which is essentially the pre-Vietnam force level. The Nixon administration is thinking in similar terms, over Ihe long run, officials in the Johnson plan was the deactiriation of two army divisions an! three indepen dent brigades, in addition to numerous support units and more than M Jel fighter squadrons. This entire reduction would spaced out over three to four years and could reduce defense, spending by roughly billion. But the cost of new weapons systems, a proposed all volunteer army, pay rises and inflation may shave these potential savings considerably, Pentagon officials said. The pace of cutbacks, particularly in forces, is dependent on the combat situation in Viet; nam. _ Nashuan Copadis CONCORD, N.H.
