Two Groups Discuss Problems
Of Financing Space Age Defense
WASHINGTON MP)-Two White House ieetings-one small and
the other large-dug yesterday into the problems of financing Amer-
ica's space age defenses.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower sought from these two groups of
advisers advice on what to put into the budget he will submit to
Congress when it reconvenes in January:

He talked first with Vice President Richard M. Nixon, Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles, Secretary of the Treasury Robert Anderson
and Budget Director Percival Brundage.t
This meeting was billed in advance as devoted to the question
of foreign aid, a form of- expenditure President Eisenhower has re-
- ''eatedly called one of the most
effective ways to defend America.

Attempts To Halt
Organization by Union
WASHINGTON (A')-Senate in-
vestigators were told yesterday
that a Teamsters Union official
was murdered in 1952 after buck-
ing efforts by a rival Teamsters
local to organize garbage haulers
in New York.
A dramatic story of murder,
blunt threats, pressure tactics
againstbusinessment and mystery
fires was unfolded as the Senate
Labor Rackets Investigating Com-
mittee began an inquiry into New
York's garbage industry.
The committee's announced goal:
To show that gangster elements
connived with some labor union
officials to take over the 50-million
dollar-a-year business of hauling
trash from 122,000 businesses and
half a million homes.
Testimony about the unsolved
slaying of John Acropolis, presi-
dent of Teamsters Local 456 in
Westchester County, was given by
Ed Doyle of Yonkers.
Doyle succeeded Acropolis as
he'ad of the local. ,
The witness testified hat both
he and Acropolis were threatened
several times in the three - weeks
before Acropolis was shot to death.
Chairman John L. McClellan
(D-Ark.) asked if Doyle himself
feared violence. 11
"You got to die some time, Sena-
tor," Doyle replied. "You can't live
Doyle said that Acropolis, de-
scribed by associates as tough but
honest, fought efforts by Team-
sters in the county.
The witness said Local 27 was a
New York City outfit that had no
claim to jurisdiction over garbage
cartmen in Westchester, an area
north of Manhattan.

Shortly before, the father of the
SAC, Gen. Curtis Lemay, gave a
dramatic punch to his claim that
the global bomber has not been
scrapped by the missile.
He helped fly a big jet Strato-
tanker 6,350 miles from the Unit-
ed States to Brazil without stop-
ping or refueling.
Gen. Power told a news'confer-
ence SAC mounted an alert Oct.
1, that there always are some of
the great bombers in the air and
they are "not carrying ,swords or
bows and arrows."
He struck at the recent claim of
Soviet Communist Chief Nikita
Khrushohev that the intercon-
tinental ballistic missile had made
Power declared Russian mis-
siles could not knock out United
States SAC bases all over the world
simultaneously "and nobody knows
it better than Khrushchev."
In a press conference after his
flight, Gen. Lemay said, there still
was a lack of "over-all efficiency"
in missiles. "It is my personal
opinion that there will be a place
for the manned bomber for some
time to come."
The "first generation" of mis-
siles would not be as efficient as
bombers, he added, and the United
States was "interested in getting
the very best weapon possible.",
