Ike Convinced Defense Plan Meets Needs WASHINGTON WV-Presi- dent Eisenhower was quoted .today as saying he is con- vinced his defense program meets the needs of the situa- tion despite the alarms voiced by some Congressional Demo- crats. Republ i c a n Congressional leaders reported after their regular weekly White House session that Eisenhower also said he of course puts the defense of the country ahead of everything else. There have been sugges tions from Democratic critics that Eisenhower was so bent on balancing the budget that he was ready to weaken de- fenses in order to do it. 6 THE DEFENSE program was reviewed thoroughly, the GOP leaders said, during meeting with the President.

Leveret Saltonstall a mem her of the Senate Armed Serv ices Committee, told newsmc that in their opinion the Pres ident is the outstanding ex pert in the field of nationa defense needs.
