President Eisenhower's econom3
budget calls for a $2,100,000,00(
cut in military spending and 2
drop of nearly 200,000 men in th
size of the Armed Forces, defens
officials said yesterday in Wash-
The proposed reduction in the
military budget would bring th
military force down to 3,300,00(
Press. At present, there aren abu
3,500,000 men in the Armed Ser-
OFFICIALS said the reductior
in military manpower would sav
an estimated one billion dollars
The estimate is based on the
theory that it costs $5,000 a yeai
to keep a mnan in uniform.
Savings in spendings for miii-
tary procurement would account
for the other billion dollar slash
in former President Truman's
' defense budget.
Most of the manpower reduc-
tion is expected to be in the Army
and probably will mean lower
draft calls.

32,000, compared to a draft call
of 53,000 during the first five
months of 1953. The Defense De-
partment has presumably not yet
' decided on the size of next month's
draft call.
Former President Truman's
budget, presented to Congress
just before he left office, called
for defense spending of $45,-
500,000,000 for the 1954 fiscal
Under the new Administration's
economy drive, defense officials
said the best estimate for the
year's defense spending is $43,-
Plans to reduce by five billion
dollars Truman's request for $41,-
300,000,000 in new funds for the
Armed Services in fiscal 1954 were
also revealed by Defense officials.
The cut would be accomplished by
drawing on "carry-over" funds
from previous years, they said.
Military expenditures for the
current fiscal year ending June 30
are expected to be 43,400,000,000
officials said. Estimates of mili-
tary spending last January ran
about $1,600,000,000 higher than

tories consulted with President
Eisenhower and his lieutenants
yesterday on "the overriding

It was the first time in 20 years
that an Armerican President has
sought te counsel of state lead.-
ers in such a meeting.
THERE WERE signs that the
governors not only are being given
a first hand picture of the state of
the world but are being told, in
part at least, what the United
States proposes to do about it.
All sessions of the two-day
conference that ends today are
being held behind closed doors.
What goes on at the extraordin-
ary meeting will be held strictly
confidential, James C. Hagerty'
the President's press secretary,
told reporters.
The President reminded the
governors that the Constitution
places the responsibility for "the
conduct of foreign affairs and the
business of war and peace" on the
federal government.
Gov. G. Mennen Williams said
the briefings included a report on
the situation in the Kingdom of
Laos, which the Communists are
threatening to overrun. He de-
clined to elaborate. '

On Imports
Tariff Ban May
Jolt World Allies
WASHINGTON -- (A') -- The
Eisenhower administration said
yesterday that any new bars
against imports of foreign goods
into the U.S. would jolt the econ-
omy of "jittery" free world allies
and drive them toward the Com-
munist camp..
The administration thus opened
a broad-gauge fight to killaa movne

cans to bolster tariff protection for

try now compaining against in-
jurious competition from foreign

and a Defense Department spokes-
man told the House Ways and
Means Committee that the Simp-
son bill would seriously injure na-
tional security and the anti-Com-

They urged approval of Presi-
dent Eisenhower's request for a
straight one-year extension of
the present Reciprocal Trade
Act without the many new trade
restrictions proposed by Simp-
son House S ekr hMartin
ministration's side in the sharp
GOP schism.
The speaker's stand--and Dulles'
uncompromising testiamony -- in-
dicated enough Republicans may
fall in line to give the President
what he wants. Democratic leaders
already have said they prefer an
extension of present trade frogram
without changes.
By Mcarthy
McCarthy (R.-Wis.) said yester-
day some ship owners of Ameri-
ca's Western allies are engaging
in an "unholy dual trade" with
Red China and the United States,
taking money from both sides.
McCarthy made the statement
as testimony at a hearing before
his Senate investigations sub-
committee developed these salient
1. THAT 19 owners of 82 ships
flying the flags of this country's
allies are carrying cargoes to Com-
munist, China and also hauling
U.S. for'eign aid goods to combat
communism abroad.
2 . Thtte U.S. government-
from the outbreak of the Korean
War in mid-1950 up to this mo-
nient-has never had any offi-
cial policy to "refrain from aid-
ing shipping companies that are
aiding the enemy."
"Inconceivable-the most inex-
cusable thing I've ever heard of,"
McCarthy exclaimed as the story
barked an order for two former
foreign aid chiefs in the Truman
administration--Paul G. Hoffman
and Averell Harriman - to be
called as witnesses.
Later, however, the senator told
his staff to hold fire on the order
until he could get further facts on

the situation.

Special To The Daily
EVANSTON -- Michigan's golf
team completed its four-day inva-
sion of Big Ten links by over-
whelming Northwestern and Iowa
yesterday to make it two meets in
a row over conference linksters.
Playing under sunny skies, the
Wolverines added to their triple
win on Saturday and firmly es-
tablished themselves as the team
to beat for the conference title by
downing the Wildcats, 21-15, and
handing a 24-12 thrashing to the
JACK STUMPFIG highlighted
the double victory by shooting a
two-under-par 69 on his morning
round. Adding to this an after-
noon round of 74, Stumpfig gained
a tie for medalist honors with
Wolverine Bud Stevens, who card-
ed 70-73-143.
Stumfig took 11% of aps

to capture another ten points
for the Maize and Blue.
The fourth Michigan golfer to
break 150 was Tad Stanford, who
carded 74-75 - 149. Sophomore
Andy Andrews, playing in his
second Big Ten meet, came in
with 80-78-158. Warren Gast's
85-81-166 completes Michigan's
spot on the scoreboard.
The Wolverines took advantage
of the sub-par rounds by Stump-
fig and Stevens in the morning to
jump into a 12-6> lead over North-
western andi a 14-4 advantage over
the Hawkeyes after the first half
of the meet.

He added that it "in effect

"THAT IS merely a smoke

The U.N. Command yesterday
nominated Pakistan as the neu-

suggested by the Communists
themselves as a possible choice.
In saying the UN would not
agree to sending the prisoners to
the neutral nation, Harrison was
replying to a question raised by
North Korean Gen. Nam Il, chief
Red negotiator.
Nam Il noted that the UN Com-
mand yesterday had nominated
Pakistansas a neutral custodin of

UN would agree to send the pris-

Harrison said such a movement
was impractical. The Allies pre-

Meanwhile, South Koreans
fought North Koreans along the
Eastern Front yesterday, waging
war as usual, but hundreds of
thousands of Allied soldiers
marked time.
