Green Washington President Truman will call for more men, money and authority to deal with the Korean crisis tomor- row but, one congressional leader said, will net now seek a tax increase.

As pieced together from a dozen sources in the capital, Mr. Truman's requests to Con- gress were expected to include: An additional to in military spending authority. Permission to increase by men or more the au- thorized strength of the armed forces or, about above today's actual strength. Limited powers of priority and allocation, to channel steel Truman Preparing Speech eluding curbs on consumer credit but not including the price, wage or ration of World War II. High taxes have been pre- dicted freely by officials as the Korean "police action" mush- roomed into war proportions. Senator Lucas of Illinois, Demo- cratic leader in the Senate, told a. reporter, however, he does not expect that Mr. Tru- man will ask higher rates at this time. If more revenues are needed, Mr. Truman can call for them when the new Congress con- venes in January. This does not, however, necessarily rule out his pending request for a "mod- erate" Increase. One report was that the bulk of the new military requests would be in the form of con- tract authority that is, to order things for which the money would be appropriated later. This would mean that the bills would be quite a while in appearing. It also would indi- cate plans to order the heavier types of equipment, rather than readily available small items.

Susan Bruton, Baltimore, Md., a By Barney Livingstone Washington Congressional demands for a Pacific mutual de- jfense pact along North Atlantic treaty lines piled up today as the House opened debate on the arms aid bill. Solid bipartisan support assured, without question, passage of Pres- ident Truman's request for second- year military assistance to the non-Communist world when the bill comes to a final vote tomorrow. Tagged "urgent" by Chairman Kee (D.-W. Va.) of the House for- eign affairs committee, the bill cleared the rules committee yes- terday in record time. Republicans as well as Demo- crats predicted there would be few, if any, votes cast against it. The biU passed the Senate, 66 to 0. House discussion of the measure centered around what some mem- bers of both parties regard as a mandate for the U, S. to take the lead in setting up a mutual de- fense assistance pact
