NATO Proposes Formation Of Nuclear Fire Brigade PARIS from 15 North Atlantic Treaty countries today recommended the formation of a military fire nuclear weapons at its meet any type of Communist threats to the alliance. The lawmakers unanimously approved the idea originally put forward by Gen. Lauris Nor- stad, supreme allied military commander in Europe. They also asked that NATO be granted political control of atomic arms and delivery sys- tems. At present practical control of such weapons in the alliance rests with the United States. The resolutions passed at the closing session of the annual conference of NATO parliamen- tarians carry only advisory weight. They will be sent to the NATO Council for official consideration. The proposed fire brigade would not necessarily have its own nuclear weapons, although this had been one part of the resolution when it vvas first de- bated. The final resolution simply said that the brigade "must be in a position to use" nuclear weapons. The parliamentarians avoided anv mention of NATO as a "fourth atomic power." Their resolution on the eventual con- trol of atomic weapons simply urged the NATO Council to es- tablish its own "political au- thority" over nuclear delivery systems and their use. At present, Gen. Norstad needs permission from the White House before employing atomic devices, although he is pledged to consult the NATO Council if there is time. Giving NATO political au- thority over the use of these weapons appeared to mean that in the future the supreme com- mander also would have to seek the permission of the 14 other NATO countries before dipping into his nuclear arsenal. The parliamentarians said the fire brigade mobile striking force should employ nuclear weapons only where necessary to counteract a nuclear attack. Invoking Norstad's own speech earlier this week, they said the use of atomic weapons should result only from a "specific, de- liberate" decision at a level higher than the commander of the basic combat elements. Other resolutions urged great- er coordination in the develop- ment and production of weap- ons and greater economic cohe- sion with NATO alliance. Spaak told Ihe 200 delegates a commonly controlled force "would be the best means to furnish the alliance efficient means for defense and would also have a psychological effect, notably on the interior cohesion of the Atlantic being borne by the American conomy." Newspapers noted the Amer- icans did not ask the Britisn for support costs for American troop? standing guard in this country- But they insisted Britain must give its closest ally every possible help.

The sergeants will be hos- pitalized about two weeks, after which they will be given month-long convalescent leaves.
