Anyway, it is ludicrous to think of GOLD- WATER in a secret conspiracy with German rightists. other brick in what they regard the most formidable obstacle between GOLDWATER and the German trip by canceling it. But the the Presidency; his image as a militaristic, bomb-rattling advocate of war, an enemy of peace. The idea of GOLDWATER consorting with jack-booted Germans in Munich em- bellishes the image. basic problem of the bomb-rattling image re- But for GOLDWATER'S strategists, the CBS commentary was deadly serious. It is an- GOLDWATER erased the problems posed by 1964 mains. In fact, it grows every time he speaks off the cuff. The-cause of this growth is shared by both the press and GOLDWATER himself. - For their part, newsmen pepper GOLDWATER with more intense questioning about his military-foreign policy views than is usually the case, even with a presidential candidate. For his part, GOLDWATER replies to their questions in breezy, offhand style, as if en- gaged in a barracks bull session. GOLD- WATER'S arrival in San Francisco for the Na- tional Convention is illustrative. His high command decided a press conference was necessary. Unfortunately for GOLDWATER, it came right after publication in a German magazine of some barracks-room impromptu remarks. As soon as GOLDWATER arrived here, he was rushed to a hotel suite. There, for 45 minutes, staff members' briefed him on the German magazine article. To little avail. "We spent 45 minutes tell- ing him what not to say, and then he went downstairs (to the press conference) and said it," confided one aid. For instance, he reiterated that he would turn over control in the Vietnamese war to military commanders. Whatever the merits of such statements, they enlarge the image of militarist. The reason why so many Republicans now tell pollsters they prefer President Johnson to GOLDWATER is not the Senator's conserva- tism. The vague fear that he will provoke a nuclear holocaust is what really frightens Republican voters?particularly in the isola- tionist, peaceloving Midwest. If this immense hurdle could be cleared, GOLDWATER might well make a race of it. His key strategists are even now planning a scatter-shot campaign against Mr. John- son (with special emphasis on the Bobby Baker and Billie Sol Estes scandals and his 89-vote Senate election victory in 1948). Whichever charges hit home will be pressed. Simultaneously, Mr. Johnson will be de- picted as a leftwinger in hopes of winning the crucial suburban vote. The emphasis here will be on high taxes and the cost of living, with the white backlash a silent ally. But these same GOLDWATER strategists pri- vately admit that these tactics will have no more effect than barking at the moon unless Goldwater's militaristic image is erased. How to do it? As a starter, virtually elim- inate press conferences. After his grilling in that first San Francisco press conference, - GOLDWATER immediately decreed that there be no more during the convention. And there will be precious few between now and November 3. This will cut down on barrack-room an- swers to hostile press questions. But beyond this negative formula, GOLDWATER must take positive steps to erase the dangerous image that now exists. If he does not, an L.B.J. landslide looms. CONGRESSIONAL RECORD ? APPENDIX Report From Congress EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. GRAHAM PURCELL OF TEXAS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Tuesday, July 21, 1964 Mr. PURCELL. Mr. Speaker, under leave to extend my remarks, I submit my report from Congress dated July 27, 1964: REPORT FROM CONGRESS (By GRAHAM PURCELL, Representative, 13th District of Texas, July 27, 1964) DEAR FRIENDS: I was appalled when I heard Senator GOLDWATER say in San Francisco, "It has been during Democratic years that our strength to deter war has stood still and even gone into a planned decline." What amazed me about this statement was that the Sena- tor displayed such an astounding lack of information about our Defense Establish- ment. If there is any area of our Federal Gov- ernment in which Americans of all political philosophies can justifiably take pride, it is in the operation of the Department of De- fense. Is our strength declining? Let's look at the facts. In the past 3 years we have accomplished a 150-percent increase in the number of nuclear warheads in the strategic alert forces; a 60-percent increase in the tactical nuclear forces deployed in Western Europe; a 45-percent increase in the number of combat-ready Army divisions; a 44 per- cent increase in the number of tactical fight- er squadrons; a,75-percent increase in airlift capability; a 100-percent increase in general ship construction ?and conversion to modern- ize the fleet; and an 800-percent increase in the special forces trained to deal with counterinsurgency threats. There is no decrease in our defense capabil- ity. On the contrary, the United States today is stronger than it has ever been, and we maintain the greatest margin of military superiority over our adversaries than has been the case at any time since the start of the cold war. And all of this has been accomplished in the midst of a cost reduction program which is saving the American taxpayer billions of dollars. Secretary of Defense McNamara re- cently issued the second annual progress re- port on his cost reduction program. Here is what the report shows. Savings of $2.5 bil- lion were actually realized during fiscal year 1964, compared with the forecast of savings of $1.5 billion. Savings of $4.6 billion a year by fiscal year 1968 and each year thereafter have been set as the new long-range goal. This is an increase of $600 million per year over the previous objectives of the cost re- duction program. This program, which is helping to achieve the twin objectives of the required military strength and the lowest possible cost, has three parts: 1. Buying only what is needed to achieve balanced readiness. 2. Buying at the lowest sound price. 3. Reducing operating costs through ter- mination of unnecessary operations, stand- ardization, and consolidation. The spending policies of the Department of Defense are particularly significant when we realize that this one Department spends over one half of the funds in each year's Federal budget. Over 50 cents out of each A3805 Federal tax dollar you -pay goes to the task of keeping our Nation the strongest on earth. I think it is most significant that this ad- ministration has placed such emphasis on the dual responsibility of maintaining and increasing our defense capability while, at the same time, making an all-out effort to streamline and modernize our efforts to get the most possible benefit from each dollar spent. Senator GOLDWATER said in San Francisco, "We can keep the peace only if we remain vigilant and strong. Only if we keep our eyes open and keep our guard up can we pre- vent war." I am in wholehearted agreement with that statement. This is why I support the present administration so strongly in this area. We are doing just that. I have, in the past few days, had the op- portunity of viewing firsthand our defense capabilities at the "top of the world" in Alaska and Greenland. This is our first line of defense in case of nuclear attack from the Soviet Union. I am proud to be able to re- port to you that our installations there are most impressive in their efficiency and ca- pability. We have the most modern equip- ment available, and the most dedicated and well-trained personnel to operate it. My visit to these installations was most reassuring and informative. I hope to be able to tell you more on this subject in a later newsletter. Cordially, GRAHAM PURCELL, /c)/ijo We Build Our Competition With Foreig Aid Tax Funds EXTENSION OF REMARKS4 OF HON. BOB CASEY {; OF TEXAS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Tuesday, July 21, 1964 Mr. CASEY. Mr. Speaker, I have for some time been deeply concerned over the competition we are building abroad under the foreign aid program for our American workers and our industries. s A year ago, the House adopted my amendment to the foreign aid bill which would bring some protection to the jobs and the markets of our taxpayers foot- ing the bill for this program. Unfor- tunately, the Senate refused to accept it, and it was lost in conference. On June 10 of this year, the House again saw fit to adopt my amendment. Most of my colleagues know personally of industries in their own districts suf- fering from a deluge of foreign imports. They have watched, as I have, while our citizens' tax dollars are used abroad to build plants and modernize industries to take away American jobs. The need for my amendment is imperative to turn the spotlight of publicity upon the aid program, so that our people and this Congress will know just what we are building overseas. Mr. Speaker, my amendment is not re- strictive. It allows ample latitude to the Executive to carry out this program.

From 1945 through fiscal year 1963, we built, modernized or expanded 179 foreign steel plants; and from 1958 through 1963, we built or expanded 31 pulp and paper plants; 24 chemical plants; 13 aluminum plants; 22 rubber plants; and we made 27 loans or grants for studies and to build plants for pe- troleum industries. I did not, at that time, have informa- tion covering one segment of our econ- omy suffering heavily from foreign im- ports-our textile industries. My colleagues from textile manufac- turing areas, and their taxpaying work- ers dependent upon this industry for their livelihood, will,be delighted to know that in the past 5 fiscal years, we built, Modernized or expanded 115 textile plants abroad under this program. As I advised my colleagues a few days ago, I wish to update the statistics I presented to the House on August 22, 1963, on pages 14760-14764 of the REC- ORD. The statistics I submitted at that time were as complete as possible, but as the Library of Congress researcher pointed out: The enumeration of total foreign aid to specific industries can be undertaken with only limited success ? " The Agency itself does not compile aid figures according to industry or by name. Mr. Speaker, I call to the attention of my colleagues the following information for fiscal year 1963 on plants we have built, modernized or expanded for spec- ific industries. In addition, I ask my colleagues to examine the text of my amendment, and if in their judgment it is sound and needed to protect the interests of the workers and industries in their areas, I urge its adoption by Congress. The amendment states: Page 8, immediately after line 10 insert the following: "(d) At the end of section 620, add the following new subsection: "'(n) No assistance shall. be furnished un- der this Act for the construction or opera- tion of any productive enterprise in any country unless the President determines that similar productive enterprises within the United States are operating at a substantial portion of their capacity and that such as- sistance will not result in depriving such United States enterprises of their reasonable share of world markets. The President shall keep the Foreign Relations Committee and the Appropriations Committee of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representa- tives fully and currently informed of assist- ance furnished under this Act for the con- struction or operation of productive enter- prises in all countries, including specifically the numbers of such enterprises, the types of such enterprises, and the locations of such enterprises.' " U.S. AID TO TEXTILE INDUSTRIES IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES FOR FISCAL YEARS, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962 The following figures comprise the major aid totals by loans and grants given spe- cifically to textile industries in foreign coun- tries for the 5 fiscal years as noted. Under each country the various contracts or aid projects are given individually. Most of the larger listings is in the form of loans from the Export-Import Bank. Smaller totals represent specific projects sponsored by the Agency for International Development. In addition to the totals mentioned aid to spe- cific textile activities may also be hidden in disbursements for handicraft promotion cen- ters, technical support, productivity train- ing, industrial education and development, home industries, and vocational education. AID has no breakdown available for distinct projects readily assignable to the textile category.

U.S. AID TO SPECIFIC INDUSTRIES IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES BY GRANTS AND LOANS,FOR FIS- CAL YEAR 1963 The following figures provide the basic listing of eight industries in foreign countries which have received some form of U.S. aid either by loans or grants during fiscal year 1963. Many of the larger loans were pro- cured through the Export-Import Bank while aid projects were initiated through the Agen- cy for International Development. In the latter instance itemized totals per industry - and per country are not specified. Actual aid to the industries covered may also be in- cluded among disbursements for productivity centers, mining developments, research cen- ters, metals fabricating plants, engineering laboratories and services, technical support, Declassified and Approved For Release 2014/02/21: CIA-RDP66B00403R000300090026-3 1964 Declassified and Approved For Release 2014/02/21: CIA-RDP66B00403R000300090026-3 CONGRESSIONAL RECORD - APPENDIX metallic and nonmineral surveys, and indus- try development and project assistance.
