This is the next to last step in pledging a one-for-all and all-for- one defense against any attacker warning clearly intended for communist Russia which has de- nounced the pact as "aggressive."

A sampling of the city's 15 pre- cincts revealed that voting in the first five hours of the 13-hour vot- period was the highest for any i city election in the decade. At noon 13 per cent of the city's registered voters had cast their ballots. That's two per cent higher than the up-to-noon voting I two years ago and still higher than [the morning vote in 1945, 1943 or 11941.

But the extent to which this na- tion would be "morally" commit- ted to fight in a European war, started by an attack on a member of the proposed new alliance, will provide one of the big issues in Senate debate on the North Atlan- tic treaty. The other major issue expected to come up in the Senate is whether the treaty would pledge the United States to help rearm Western Eur- ope. Some senators who have in- dicated they might vote for the treaty have declared against ad- ministration plans for a military assistance program, estimated to cost around the first year. President Truman is expected to send the treaty to the Senate with- in a few days. He will present it as an instrument to preserve peace and a defensive arrangement entirely in accord with the United Nations charter.
