TRENTON, N.J. (/P) - President
) Dwight D. Eisenhower said yes-
terday he could "easily do some
serious expense cutting" if Con-
gress would give him power to veto
specific items in appropriations
In what amounted to a chal-
lenge to the Democratic-controlled
Congress, he took a slap at a sub-
ject dear to the hearts of many
congressmen -some river and
' harbors projects, which often
mean votes back home.
"This -veto power," he said, in
a telephoned message toa lregion
"would let the President cut out
of appropriation bills some ex-
pensive - and unnecessary pro-
'jects. It would permit the presi-
den to oannew pubi works

And, P r e s i d e n t Eisenhower
radded, "If the item vetoed existed
right now, I could easily do some

serious expense cutting."
He said it would be "one simple
way to save a lot of money."
At present the President must
veto the whole appropriations bill
if he wants to kill one item.

jects are local in nature but are

SUpholding the administration's
contention that the slashes, if they
stand, will mean risky, unwise
gambling with' national security,
Rep. Robert Wigglesworth (R-
Mass.) told his colleagues the cuts
"are deeper than they should be."
But Rep. George Mahon (D-
Tex,), the man piloting the bill
toward a House vote next week,
assured the members "we have
proceeded with the greatest care
and caution" with what "could be
an extremely dangerous business."
