that Big Lift suggests the Unit

make useful reductions in its
heavy overseas military expen
ditures without diminishing its
effective military strength or
its capacity to apply that
strength swiftly in support of
its world wide policy commit
ments." i
Vance said he would not try
to interpret what Gilpatric said.
I have stated what the pur
pose of Big Lift is," he said.
He was asked what the State
Department meant when it said
this week that America plans no
troop reductions in Germany
but that "it is obvious in view
of new skills in the deployment
and use of new weapons we
must consult and study with
our Allies the possibilities for
tneir use."
"Frankly, I don't know what
that means," Vance said
A transpacific troop flight

U.S. Plans
Draft Tests
At Age 18
Defense Department is consid
ering a plan under which all
youths would be given physical
and mental tests for the draft
at the age of 18, it was learned
At present, the physical and
mental tests are given at the
time of induction, which aver
ages 23 years.
Defense officials said the pur
pose of the change would be to
increase voluntary enlistments
in the armed services.
They said they believed that
more youths would enlist if
they knew they were physical
ly and mentally qualified and
probably would be drafted five
years later anyway.
More than half of the poten
tial draftees now are rejected
by physical and mental tests
but it is believed the rate of
rejections would be far smaller
if they were given to all
Enlistments already provide
by far the greater porportion
of the recruits for the Army,
Navy, Air Force and Marines.
Only the -Army is using draft
ees. In 1962 there were 324,000
enlistments against 81,000 draft
. Conceivably, officials said,
enlistments could rise with fur
ther encouragement to a point
where inductions would be rare
or unnecessary.

The defense contended, how
ever, that Mrs. Moore was re

attempted to prove that Mrs
Moore had been deserted by
her husband, and while it was
admitted he was receiving in

contended Mrs. Moore was not

The state's case was based on1

waved American flags and
some Confederate banners. Ste

Stevenson said differences be

Russia are deep and serious
and because of them "the cold
war will never be the same
again. We 'are moving into a
