(Studio) Carter made promise with regard to defense budget cut, but Pentagon will ask for more than ever.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) Pentagon officials will make budget request, expected to be cut some by Defense Secretary Don. Rumsfeld and President Ford. Sources say 1978 budget would include money for work on new ICBM, warships and B-1 bomber. Getting budget passed may be difficult due to reports that, for unknown reason, Pentagon may have failed to use some funds Congress approved for military items purchase.
