House Votes
Record Sum
For Defense
Military To Get
37 Billions More
largest peace-time military appro-
priation bill in history was ap-
proved by the House yesterday,
making $94,000,000,000 available
for preparedness this year.
The bill authorizes a defense
budget of $56,937,808,030. In addi-
tion about $37,000,000,000 carried
r over from previous years is avail-
able to the military. The House
approved the bill by voice vote.
* * *
IF THE BILL for the total avail-
able were shared equally, it would
amount to about $600 for every
man, woman and child in the
country, or about $2,400 for every
family of four persons.
The measure now goes to the
Senate where prompt approval
seems assured. Both the House
and Senate have approved the
measure previously in different
form, the present bill being a com-
Arguing for the bill, Chairman
Mahon (D-Tex.) of an appro-
priations defense subcommittee,
told the House that recent state-
ments about fantastic new wea-
pons "are entirely too fantastic,"
He added that there is no easy
and inexpensive road to victory
in war.
President Truman has been
among those officials who recently
have talked of spectacular devel-
. opments in military weapons.
. .. *
Dean, chairman of the Atomic
Energy Commission, said in a
speech at Los Angeles that the
U.S. now has atomic weapons that
can overcome any superiority an
enemy may have in numbers of
soldiers on the battlefield.
The Bill would provide the Army
$19,888,032,030; the Navy $15,877,-
891,000; the Air Force $20,642,-
785,000 and the Office of Secretary
of Defense $529,100,000. Most of
the money is for planes, tanks,
guns and other weapons.
Mahon said that while the bill
would make around $94,000,000,000
x available to the military, only
around $40,000,000,000 will be
spent in the fiscal year ending
nextJune. The explanation is that
the Defense Department will be
making some contracts for heavy
goods that won't be paid for in
full until delivered after next

Eligibility Study
In a brief, two-sentence statement, the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics late last night expressed its willingness to
cooperate in a study of-"administration of eligibility rules for athletes.
The move came in the wake of a protest by Literary College
faculty members against a "double standard" which permits eligibility
for athletes with a below "C" average and rests sole control of athletic
eligibility with an Athletic Board committee.

had not heard the eligibility pro-

the president said. "If they are
not proper, regular channels
and rules of procedure exist for
considering them."

Front Line
Pre-Dawn Attack
Succeeds in East
QUARTERS, Korea - (') -- The
Allied 100,000-man offensive broke
through the main Red line in
West Central Korea yesterday and
sent spearheads on ahead today
against retreating Chinese Reds.
In the East, a rare pre-dawn
attack today by the Allies won a
3,000-foot peak on "Heartbreak
Ridge" which has changed hands
many times in three weeks of
bloody fighting.
OFF THE EAST coast, an Allied
Naval force moved 125 miles north',
of Parallel 38 yesterday, silenced
Communist shore guns and gave
the Red-held port of Hungnam a
terrific shelling.
Maj. Gen. Robert Soule said
his U. S. Third Division had
penetrated the main Reds de-
fenses northwest of Chorwon
His troops credited with inflict-
ing 1,205 Red casualties in the
first two days, moved without op-

Soule told correspondents.
"We penetrated it and broke it
and forced the Reds to withdraw."
On t h e bloody east-central
front, Allied armored patrols
swept beyond the forbidding crags
of "Heartbreak Ridge" to a point
22 miles north of Parallel 38. Ce.'-
sorship hitherto had prevented
mention of how far into Red
Korea UN forces had battled in
that sector.
Meanwhile there were no devel-
opments in the suspended.cease-
fire negotiations. Red command-
ers, apparently shocked by the Al-
lied offensive, remained silent on
Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway's invi-
tation to them to pick a new truce
site anywhere in no-man's land.

However Mr. Truman issued
new regulations last week which
removed married men from 3-A
deferred category unless they have
children. Hershey said many reg-
istrants have become fathers dur-
ing the past two years, but have
failed to notify their local boards.
He said that they should notify
their local boards immediately, es-
pecially since many of them are
in the older group-24 or 25 years
old-and thus may be inducted
quicly if they are re-classified 1-A.

THE ARMY announcement was
made by Chairman Mahon (D-

House from Assistant Defense

Mrs. Rosenberg said the Army
previously had planned to release
all such men-inactive and volun-
teer reservists-not later than Jan..
1, 1952.
Barring any major change in
the international situation, she
said, careful reworking of Army
plans will make it possible to get
these men out by Christmas.

ters. The winning tally crossed on
a solo blast into the right field

baseman, in the second.
Only Monte Irvin, the Giants'
sizzling left fielder, found the

with the triple and three singles
he blasted in Thursday's opener.
If he maintains anything like
that pace he will, of course,
break every record in the books.
