The cost will be spread over the three years ending with 1954 and is equal to $7.'iO apiece for each of the 400 million people in the IJ original Atlantic Pact nations The council of the Norih Atlantio Treaty Organization (NATO) is expected to give final endorsement to the plan today. Months of int.ense study by economic expert.s—the so-called 12 wise men headed by U. S. Mutual Security Administrator W. Averell Harriman—went into its orepara- ' ¡ tion. All the governments involved were consulted repeatedly. The plan forms an economic tightrope for many of the hard-up European nations. Many had to increase their arms spending, and the 19.54 armament goals were reduced slightly to make en-ds meet under the plan.
