Transcript hat thi 1 more i'1' ratories tW should be. We dominate the surface, "ut the Communists have more sublines than does the entire free world put together. On land the Administration pro- Posed to reduce the army still more "Us year to a size of little more than °ne million men. We now have about "tneteen divisions including just three which are equipped for atomic war- tare, although there's some question jfbout whether or not they are ready 'or that. Russia and her satellites have °"r hundred divisions, regular and reserve. The Soviet Union itself has yO divisions, three of which, accord- "S to the Chicago Tribune, have already been well-equipped for atomic Warfare. *he indication here is that Russia is "loving ahead in all technical developments. Certainly the essential field for °Ur superiority is this matter of tech- 'ogical developments, since we are "°t going to be able to match the ornmunists by sheer manpower "erhaps the most distressing recent evelopment is the charge made by rorrner Chief of Staff General Matthew s.ldgeway in which he says that "deci- °ns in the Defense Department were fortunately based on many politi- wmsiderations." Senator Dick Rus- ca] .e'. the chairman of the Armed Serv- ses Committee of the United States Jnate> said just the other day that we e Egging in our air effort. And he J ?P°ses to add at least a billion and .naif dollars to the new Air Force b"dget. vj he developments which I have re- ^eWed engender grave doubt about Coe SUrvival of future generations. My ^ n°ern is not from the slant of a part- — but rather I speak as an Ameri- 1) "' and as a father, who is troubled Qj "e somewhat indeterminate course security measures. These develop Tnts call , a .•„ _j , c'all s call upon Americans and espe- ty l. tne executive leadership at delv gton t0 search its soul •U1<1 in e >nto its motives in further reduc- j*j these national defense expendi- es. We must not gamble with the ^Urjty of this nation. O |i*ATOR Bender: I believe we have flav e best defense machine that we lieve naa in our entire history. I be- t;ane °ur leadership is competent and Wg} We elected a great President erit? y because of his military exrieri- e' Certainly he knows what ^ Forum News, August, 1956 pening in the Defense Department as well as in all of its branches. We have had testimony from our experts on what tbe facts are concerning our defense. Some people have tire quality of saying nothing with an immense amount of seriousness. Yesterday and the day before and week before that the airwaves were thick with accusations about the deficiencies of our defense. I need not use superlatives nor indulge in spurious conversation to make my point. There has not been a war in this century under a Republican administration. President Eisenhower stopped the war in Korea. In his administration he has been intent in keeping us out of war by having the best defense of any country in the world. I do not know of a better deterrent to war than a strong defense, without fanfare, without blowing of trumpets, and without ostentation. This administration is keeping the peace. As a matter of fact, everything is booming but the guns. Air Force Secretaiy Quarles reas sured the nation on February 18, as far as the nation's defense strength is concerned, after scary remarks by certain statesmen relating to Soviet propaganda boasts of superior achievements in the missiles field. In testimony before the House Appropriations Subcommittee early in February, an enlarged version of the February 18 release, Mr. Quarles made these points: 1. The United States is probably well ahead of Russia in the guided missiles race. 2. A missile armed with a nuclear warhead is horrifying but it does not kill you any deader than a bomber does with an atomic bomb. 3. Long-range bombers are the best way of reaching targets and will continue to be in any war occurring in the next five years. 4. America will have B-52 bombers which can do a better job than anybody will be able to do with missiles for some time to come. 5. Even if Russian boasts of the de- (Continucd on page 39) Rap ing k Page 17
