JAKARTA, Indonesia OIP)-Brit-

day despite a pledge of President
Sukarno's government to suppress
any further anti-British violence.

people to avoid what it called wild

Britain had threatened to break

lives and property was assured.

WASHINGTON (A) - Canada's
big wheat deal with the Soviet Un-
ion is putting new steam into pres-
sures already building up for more
liberal United States trade with
the Communist bloc in non-stra-
Sen. Frank Carlson, a Republi-
can from wheat-growing Kansas,
stated the proposition flatly to
his colleagues yesterday, calling
on the administration to study
proposals to do more business with
the Reds in such materials as food.
Secretary of Commerce Luther H.
Hodges had indicated only Wed-
nesday, not in direct connection
with wheat, that the subject is
coming up for consideration.
Carlson, a member of the For-
eign Relations Committee, said in
a Senate speech that Canada's
agreement to sell Russia $500 mil-
lion worth of wheat, with $33 mil-
lion of it earmarked for Cuba,
"should prove to us that we must
be practical and realistic in our
His remarks came on the heels
of word from Secretary of Agri-
culture Orville L. Freeman that he
would be willing to sell some of
this country's surplus wheat to the
Soviet Union if the Russians pay
"our price." Freeman was refer-

Monticello, Iowa, Wednesday, to
the 70 cents a bushel subsidy this
country pays on export wheat to
make it competitive in world mar-
Yesterday's New York Times
said Soviet representatives are re-
ported to have approached Ameri-
can traders with offers to buy
wheat. The story quoted a highly
placed source as saying the Rus-

direct approach to the United
Any United States wheat deal
with Russia would run into regula-
tions of the Commerce Depart-
ment, which issues export licenses,
barring benefits of government ex-
port subsidies on farm products to
the Soviet Union.
To Get Branch
Maryland Gov. Millard Tawes
said recently that Cambridge
would have to clear up its racial
problems if it wished to attract
the Eastern Shore branch of the
University of Maryland to the city.
"With the continuance of con-
ditions that exist in Cambridge, I
would have no great desire to
agree to the establishment of a
branch there. It would be unwise,"
the governor stated.
Tawes agreed with Maryland
University Regent Richard W. Case
who previously said that the city's
chances might be better if it ease&
racial problems through the ap-
proval of a city charter amend-
ment on equal accommodations.

WASHINGTON--"We've had a
couple of good years. Now it looks
like we may have a couple of
This was the way one senior
Pentagon official sized up yester-
day the prospects facing the De-
fense Department in the light of
what appears to be a toughening
mood in Congress.
The realization is expected to
act as one more factor in holding
down next year's defense budget
requests - although even before
the Congressional pattern became
clearer Secretary of Defense Rob-
ert S. McNamara was putting on
the brakes himself.
Tightening the Reins
The feeling that Congress no
longer will be relatively open
handed in defense appropriations
-as it has been for the past three
years-was underscored by ac-
tions of the Senate Appropriations
Committee three days ago.
That committee restored only
about half of the $577 million the
Pentagon asked be put back after
the House slashed the current fis-
cal year's defense money bill.
The bill sent to the Senate
totals $47,371,407,000-more than
$1.6 billion below what President
John F. Kennedy asked in Jan-
Thus, for the first time since
the Kennedy administration took
office in January 1961, Congress
is wielding a sharp scalpel on its
defense. spending proposals.
Last year Congress gave the ad-
inistration $48,350,000,000 for
defense-somewhat more than it
In 1961, Kennedy's recommen-
dations for big increases over the
Eisenhower administration's mili-
tary spending went through with-
Congress voted large increases
in 1961 in response to arguments
that the nation's missile striking
forces and conventional fighting
power were badly in need of beef-
Another factor was the Berlin
crisis of two years ago, when
Russia was threatening military
action to drive the United States
and other western nations out of
The Intercontinental Ballistic
Missile buildup is well on its way,
and Congress has appropriated all
the money needed to build the
Polaris submarine fleet to its goal
of 41 boats.
Also, the armed forces now have
about 200,000 more men than
when the Kennedy administration
took office-they now total about
2.7 million men.
And for three. years, the army
has been getting hefty infusions of
money to modernize with the lat-
est in tanks, artillery, helicopters
and other equipment.
To Get $3 Billion
Even with the cuts made by
Congress, the army still stands to
get nearly $3 billion this year to
continue re-equipping its 16 reg-
ular divisions and to start major
modernization of gear used by
high priority National Guard di-
The army probably has seen the
peak of its modernization splurge,
although its leaders feel they need
a few more years at the present
It is highly unlikely, too, that
the army will get the two addi-
tional regular divisions it wants
and believes it needs to be able
to handle more than one emer-
gency at a time in different parts
of the world.
The services are due to turn in
their budget proposals around
Knowledgeable sources said they
expect the services to come up
with realistic proposals that may
need a minimum of cutting.
These sources said the services
have learned by this time that
McNamara will take a searching
look at all their proposals--and
unhesitatingly reject those which
do not fit into his five-year pro-
gram projections and do not meet
his cost-effectiveness test.
All in all, these authorities said,
the prospect is for a fiscal 1965
defense budget package pretty
close to this year's level.
