ALBANY.

Imhw roriiir'tiMM in Knrnne D31SC OVPT U.S. dptT


By FRED S. HOFFMAN AF Military Writer WASHINGTON <AP> Jam es R S ch le sin g e r said he considered President Ford s planned d efend budget inadequate and indicated Ford fired him as secretary of de­ fense after he objected In his first interview since being fired three weeks ago, Schlesinger said the d efen se budget being prepared-for next fiscal vear was an im p o rta n t iss u e " in events leading to his ouster. At the sam e tim e. Schlesinger jab­ bed at Ford s pledge to maintain a defense second to none.

The m ilitary establishm ent can­ not live on rhetoric and sentiment Schlesinger told The A ssociated Press in the interview Friday And the real question that we will face is not whether we will have tributes to the concept ot America s strength but whether we are going to avoid cutting m ilitary strength and defense purchasing power further by additional budget cuts " Schlesinger said Ford asked him to prepare a fiscal 1977 budget about $10 billion less than Ford originally protected tor next year. Although Ford's new proposal ot $107 billion would represent a small dollar increase over the adm im stru- tio n r e q u e s t fo r th is y e a r .

Schlesinger contended it would turn out to be a net shrinkage of 5 or 6 per cent in actual defense buying power because of inflation Schlesinger denied reports that he had reached the point of deciding whether to quit in protest. But. he added, "there was a question in my mind whether I would be prepared to carry a detense budget to the Hill which I regarded as inadequate Apart from strong indications that he and Ford differed on next year s budget. Schlesinger declined to dis­ cuss what motivated Ford to tire him As far as I'm concerned, that's all w ater over the dam ,' he said But he sidestepped taking a position on whether he would support Ford for election next vear. saying " it's pre­ m ature for me to get into any political issues

Schlesinger also said "I would not care to speculate' on reports that he was a victim ot intrigue by Secretary of State Henry A Kissinger or a power play by Donald Rumsfeld, whom Ford nam ed to rep la ce Schlesinger. H o w e v e r. S c h le s in g e r a c ­ know ledged m a jo r d iffe ren ce s between himself and Kissinger on negotiating strategy in dealing with the Soviet Union" on such m atters as strategic nuclear arm s lim itations.

m utual force reductions in Europe and "w h at kind of leverage we should get out of grain sales and the like." The form er defense secretary was more pointed than in the past in in­ dicating reservations about the framework of a new Strategic A nns L im itatio n A greem ent (SALT» worked out at \ ladivostok a year ago by Ford, with K issinger’s advice, an d S o v ie t le a d e r L eo n id I. Brezhnev. "It provided for less arm s stability th a n 1 w ould h av e d e s ire d , Schlesinger said But he conceded "th at would have been very difficult to negotiate." Schlesinger dism issed as "sim ply false" charges by some critics that he was responsible for the deadlock in followup SALT negotiations, and that he has tried to underm ine detente He skirted a direct reply as to whether he and Kissinger ultim ately resolvt'd differences on SALT, but said that a new U S proposal made to Russia in September * was one by and large that 1 could accept

" I t re fle c te d e x te n s iv e d is ­ c u ssio n s b e tw e e n m y se lf and Secretary Kissinger at the behest of the President," Schlesinger said The Russians rejected that U S proposal aimed at breaking an im­

passe over U.S. demands that R us­ sia s new B ackfire bomber and Soviet dem ands that planned longer range U.S. cruise m issiles be in­ cluded in the limitations on strategic nuclear weapons Asked how he assesses prospects for an equitable SALT agreement. Schlesinger said "I am alw ays hopeful, but the prospects clearly are less favorable than they have been "The Soviets have, across the board, become harder in their a titude." he said VS hiie he stopped short of accusing the Russians of cheating on the first SALT agreem ent, com pleted in 1972. Schlesinger said "it is ... fairly clear that some of the Soviet actions have been inconsistent with the basic spirit of the agreem ent While refusing to discuss specific details, he did say "there is som e question about whether the Soviets have boon fully in spirit of not in­ terfering with the national technical means of verification ' This was an apparent reference to reported efforts by the Russians to tarn I S elec tro n ic and o th e r devices used to monitor Soviet tests ot m issiles and other h ardw are related to strategic weaponry In the 1972 SALT agreem ent, both the U nited S tate s and R ussia had pledged not to m ake such efforts

Belin asks Congress Reagan doesn't mind FCC decision to reopen JFK report

W ASHINGTON ( AP) - The leading defender of the W arren Com­ mission report. David W.
