The Airforce Problem
WHEN the first shouts went up for a 150-group airforce,
T the idea sounded pretty fanciful to many sober analysts
of military power.
But the proposal has been hotly debated within the Pen-
tagon walls, and has steadily gained strength in congress.
Now it has been given its biggest boost to date—Representa-
tive Carl Vinson of Georgia, the powerful chairman of the
house armed services committee, has endorsed it.
Vinson does not urge 150 combat groups, but 188. He
suggests, however, that another 25 troop carrier wings be
created, for a total airforce of 163 wings.
At the outset we have to remember that neither Vinson
nor anybody else is talking about the current military
budget. The present program, now under congressional
consideration, calls for 95 groups. They would cost $19,-
850,000,000 out of a total of $56 billion defense appropriation.
IlOW much would the bigger program cost?
If started within the current fiscal year, one estimate
is that another $10 billion to $12 billion would be needed
before next June 30. In fiscal 1953 and 1954, sums of $30
billion and $40 billion, respectively, are anticipated for all
airforce requirements under the expanded plan.
When the latter figure is set beside the projected $56
billion for all military needs this year, some notion of the
program’s scope can be gained.
Every citizen can appreciate that if this plan should be
adopted, many new factors will lie introduced into the Ameri-
can military picture.
For one thing, it is unlikely that an effort would be made
to, raise comparably the outlays for the army and navy.
The old principle of balanced appropriations for all three
arms of the service would be out the window. It is in fact
on the way out in the current budget.
Rl'T while this would obviously signal our intent to rely
heavily on superior air power, the idea of balanced air,
sea and ground strength would not really be abandoned.
Perhaps the key argument made by advocates of enlarged
air power is that it is necessary for the sound support of
the land forces deemed essential for effective defense against
major Soviet aggression.
In other words, they are saying that mere equality in
dollars will not produce the basic balance of strength which
we seek. Fo get that, it is argued, we must spend consider-
ably more on air than on the other branches.
The American people and their congress must make up
their minds about this proposed vast airforce increase within
the coming months. Its great cost, its revolutionary impact
on the relations among the services, its effect on the peace-
time economy are all reasons why the plan should be thor-
outfhly aired and wisely appraised.
Few decisions made by American lawmakers these days
are not weighted either with danger or great promise for
the future. The decision on how big to make the airforce
fits mote than any other into the critical category.

vicious circle of frustration."
"T agree only to the word vi-
cious," said Benoit. "Come." He
led Alnn to the purser who, for a
five piastre note, told them that
Vroom had booked passage to the
end of the voyage, to Angkor.
"Ho!" Benoit exploded to Alan.
"And he said lie was destined for
Pnom Penh, the same ns we. It is
ns I feared. He follows me."
"Just what gouic are you play-
ing. Benoit?" Alan asked. "He isn’t
following you. or anybody for
some bird eggs."
Benoit shrugged with his eye-
brows. ’ You are not u fool. And
since there Is now a danger, ns of
a tiger’s leap, you should know.

tion from leopard to tiger was apt.
"In my business," he told Benoit,
“when I’m afrnid or n tiger's leap!
I tiap It first. If it's too dangerous
to trap, I shoot It."
Benoit nodded. "But you would
shoot it from In front, after a
warning. The tiger leaps always
out of the dark and from behind.”
As the big paddle-wheeler neared
Pnom Penh, peddlers scrambled up
ropes like monkeys to haggle over
their trade. Benoit came and
pointed to the after deck, swarm-
ing with natives. Vroom was
amongst the mob. The big Eura-
sion was hurangulng an eager
group which listened to hint with
"He organizes hunters," Benoit
"They look more like bandits,"
"But precisely." Benoit accepted
the foot. "Of all that concourse
there are few who would not. giv-
en opportunity and a leader, be

companion way? It Is not only in
China’s Bias Bay that a sudden

A dlan border, was a dying city.
A warren of crooked bazaar alleys
between huts of brick and of adobe
and of bamboo and of flat, beaten
kerosene cans; of walled residents
of its few whites: of vast old
temples of the ancient Khmer who
took culture from the Hindus and
overlaid It with Buddhism nnd
evolved glgantesque sculptures out
of both. It clung nowadays to Its
hope of being a river port under
a harassed French administration
and bleated feebly for a tourist
industry for which It did not know
how to advertise.
The hotel, remodeled post-war
for the local conception of Amer-
ican tourist needs, prided itself on
a cuisine with extravagant French
names and remained blundly con-
tent with n sanitary system that
appalled the few visitors who
came. But it did have all Its lower
windows barred and had stout
doors with locks.
Benoit shrugged to the no-longer
postpoimble duty. "Very well, my
friend, it Is here that 1 ask of you

of a dangerous bird might mean.

suddenly drained blood.

’’That’s where I nlways find

Benoit was sucking breath back
into his lungs. Painfully, his head
rolled with the effort. He was able
to lean forward at last and to note
the hard grin on Alan's face.
"You revenge yourself for that

I enjoyed very much the column
by Ann Garner in the August fifth
Issue of the El Reno Daily Tribune.
The recent events at West Point
should be an example to us the
declining Integrity of our political
leaders. Many more instances of
this let-down in principles have
filled the front pages of our papers
in the past months.
X( is certainly time for a moral
awakening at the grass roots for
we as voters are responsible for the
situations which have been allowed
to be born and grow unchecked.
More columns like the one men-
tioned above will, I am sure, help
to accomplish this awakening.
