40.5 Billion
By Truman
A 40 and one-half billion dol
lar appropriation for military
spending in the fiscal year 1952
was requested Monday by Presi
dent Truman. The budget sub
mitted to congress called for
$61,104,254,390 in new taxes.
However, $20 billion of this would
not be spent immediately.
The budget, Truman said,
would help forestall "another and
snore frightening global war."
The president said that in the
event of another war, the money
requested would enable the arm
ed forces to stop the enemy and
strike at the centers of his power.

able grounds existed" for think
ing she might not be loyal to the

concern the validity of the en
