Fair VOIUME 52, NO. 149 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 11, 1952 SIXTEEN PAGES TODAY Western Defense Problems By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON Secretary of Defense Robert A. Lovett has just told us that the British and French are doing their best to meet their planned defense goals. So much is no doubt true. But it is also cer- tain that a major crisis in West- ern defense planning is the first great issue which the next presi- dent will have to face. And it is far from certain that the crisis can be delayed even until the next president takes office. Meanwhile, hard new looks at previously approved defense plans are being taken both in Europe and in this country. French repre- sentatives have been telling our government that they cannot bear their economic and military bur dens much longer. They have been demanding greater aid in Indo- china and elsewhere. Simultan- eously representatives of the Bri- tish government have been saying that their military and economic burdens are also unbearable. They have suggested informally that the planned balance between ground, naval, and air strength in the Western alliance be sharply alter- ed. New Theory The United States Air Force planners, as it happens, have been thinking along precisely the same lines. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhow- er's plans for European defense call for the creation of some 97 divisions, including reserves. The Air Force planners do not believe that it is possible to match Soviet ground strength, for a sort of 1914- style defense of the continent. The Air Force believes the Sov- iets can be out-matched in the air and in the new weapons, whereas even 97 divisions would not bal- ance the vast Soviet and satellite ground forces. Yet the effort to create a great Western ground force could drain so much Western strength that superiority in the air, and in the new weapons, could not be achieved. The Air Force plans therefore call for a reduction in planned ground strength on the continent to between 30 and -40 ready divisions, coupled with a great increase in air strength. Something of the same sort is known to have been discussed by the British Chiefs of Staff. This new thinking undoubtedly lay be- hind British Prime Minister Win- ston Churchill's recent rather mys- terious references in the British Parliament to "reshaping" defense concepts. At any rate, the cards are now on the table between this country and its European allies. And there is no doubt at all that European defense plans are going 3 Die in Owatonna ane Top Advisers Disagree on Calling Congress Putnam Doubts Present Prices Warrant Action By WARREN ROGERS JR. WASHINGTON of Pres- ident Truman's top economic chief- tains were at odds today over whether Congress should be called into special session to tighten price controls. In the latest repercussion to Price Boss Ellis ArnalTs recom- mendation for such a session, Economic Stabilizer Roger Put- nam said last night he saw no need for it unless prices keep climbing at a rapid rate. And Sen. John Sparkman of Ala- bama, the Democratic vice-presi- dential nominee, said he felt this is not the proper time for a special session. Other opposition was voiced by a spokesman for the American Farm Bureau Federation and by Rep. Jacob Javits New Standards In the meantime, new standards being set up by Arnall's agency, the Office of Price Stabilization-, apparently assured higher retail prices as a result of the steel, aluminum and copper price boosts recently granted. All of these developments were ju i continuing ripples from the storm This fact has been sharply defined in the opening maneuvers over-the steel price dis- i ___i-j.i.- Tl TTipArtVirn-rnT 3nn Afllai Mf Little John Baeder, 14 months old, seems to dislike the nuzz- ling of rabbit at Farmington, Minn.

Gathered in conversation before the luncheon were, left to right: Sen. B. E. Grottum, Jackson; Sen. Archie Miller, Hopkins; Jarle Leirfallom, St. Paul, director of public insti- tutions; Sen. T. P.

This development is only one of a number of sharp contrasts in the manner in which Eisenhower and Stevenson have approached their widely different problems.

It will probably be submitted shortly to the Na- tional Security Council and the President. This paper recommends the recruitment of a board of civil- ian experts of real stature, to pro- pose new ways, however revolu- tionary, to pep up this country's rate of rearmament. The need for this new look at our rearmament effort is clear.

He handed in his res- ignation and urged the President to order a special session of Con- gress. Truman took no action on the resignation but said he was considering a special session. In New York, Putnam said on an NBC radio-television program he saw no sign of "a runaway" on food prices. He said he believes a special session is not needed now, but added: Trend Watched Western Europe Wants Both Guns and Butter By JOSEPH DYNAN LUXEMBOURG Schuman Plan's nine-man high author- j ity began work today on a program to give Western Europe both guns and butter, and perhaps eventual political unity as well.
