U.S. Sales L evy
$10 Billion New Revenue Needed
To Finance Huge Defense Program
WASHINGTON-(g)--A nation-wide sales tax designed to raise
10 or $15 billion dollars a year is under discussion among high
officials, Senator Anderson (D-N.M.) said yesterday.
Anderson disclosed this in a speech before the Maryland Farm
Bureau at Baltimore after President Truman asserted that the nation
must be taxed "until it hurts" to finance the huge defense program.
Anderson said:
"I was in a gathering in Washington in the past 10 days at
which high and responsible officials discussed the possibility
that there would be such a gap between receipts and expenditures
in our budget that we would have to resort to a nation-wide sales

Short Hints
Army by '52
Reserve Policies

By The Associated Press
Rep. Dewey Short (R-Mo.) hint-
ed the nation's armed forces may
rise to 4,500,000 by the summer of
1952 and said all 19-year-olds will
see at least two years service.
Short, a member of the House
Armed Services Committee, said
that the old concept of military
training as six months training
followed by inactive service on re-
serve lists is completely dead.
"We have insufficient manpow-

Bonn, Talks
On German
Troop's Open
By The Associated Press
Allied and German generals
opened secret talks in Bonn, Ger-
many, over adding West German
troops to the Atlantic Pact Com-
mand of Gen. Dwight D. Eisen-
hower, whose expeditionary armies
finally crushed Hitler's Wehr-
macht against the Soviet anvil less
than six years ago.
4 A dozen military and civilian
experts joined in a three-hour
conference whose object, a com-
munique said, was "to explore the
part which Germany might as-
sume for the maintenance of peace
and in the common defense of

AN ALLIED delegate said the
meeting, to be followed by an-
other next Tuesday, was "useful
and friendly." ,
Two generals of Hitler's de-
feated army, Hans Spiedel and
Adolf Heusinger, were in a five-
man German delegation closet-
ed with the representatives of
the United States, Britain and
France at the hotel, the head-
quarters of the Allied High Com-
The conferees discussed techni-
cal aspects of Western measures
intended to avert the threat of
World War III. The 12 Atlantic
Pact nations want a force of 150,-
000 West Germans among 1,000,-
000 troops to be placed under Eis-
enhower by 1953.
The Germans have made it
known that they want equality
for their troops and sweeping
political concessions from the
occupying powers if they decide
to take up arms again.
Meanwhile, Gen. Eisenhower
arrived in Brussels with a de-
mand for strong troops and a pro-
mise that, with them, Western ci-
vilization can be preserved with-
out fighting.
Brussels was the General's sec-
ond major stop on a tour that
began Sunday in Paris and will

Byrd told newsmen :

must cut all non-essential govern-
ment spending and increase the
existing sources of revenue, but
also enter new fields of taxation

Truman's grim statement that
"it is necessary to tax until it
hurts" was made in a conciliatory

whom he has clashed frequently'

meeting of the Association of
American Colleges, Short said:
"For reasons of military se-

ject in as much detail as I would
like, but it can be fairly said
that Washington is rife with
rumors attributed to 'informed
sources' that the 3,500,000-man
figure is from 500,000 to 1,000,-

sought by the summer of 1952."

1. The Navy announced it will

June. The revised quota is 32,000
more than the Navy had expected

2. The Navy said it will accept
only 21,200 volunteer recruits dur-
ing the rest of January because
the training cenlters -at Newport,

The Air Force has announced
