   Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - May 7, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma                             Flowers may bloom early and get nipped; birds have been known to make mistakes; but the sure-fire sign of summer appears now regularly in our sister, the ADA WEEKLY NEWS: the columns of country news are full of snake stories.

The 15 member nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organizaiton, winding up a four-day strategy review that produced some disagreements on Berlin and nuclear policy, reaffirmed in their summing-up communique: "The purpose of NATO is defense, and it'must be clear that in case'of attack NATO-will defend its members by all necessary means." Backing up this pledge was a U: S. commitment of Mid-Roader Wins Vote In Italy Election ROME of Chris- tian Democrat middle-reader An- tonio Segni as president of Italy threatened today to jar loose the props under his own party's new left-leaning government. The lean, 71-year-old pro-west- ern foreign minister finally won the nation's highest office Sunday night after an unprecedented nine parliamentary ballots that ended in fist fights. Voting against him to the bitter end were left-wing rebels of his own party and the solid strength of all three other parties that fig- ure in the Christian Democrats' new experiment with a govern- ment that leans on Socialist sup port. A scattering of Christian Demo- crat votes that previously had gone to retiring President Giovan- ni Gronchi finally swung over to Segni and put him 15 votes over the required 428 majority. Also backing him were the Liberals and the Monarchists and Fascists of the right. Against him were the Commu- nists, Socialists, Democratic So- cialists and Republicans. The Democratic Socialists and Repub- licans are members of the Chris- tian Democrat coalition govern- ment. The Socialists have pledged the support the alliance needs for a parliamentary majority. Democratic Socialist party lead- er Giuseppe Saragat, Segni's close opponent in the presidential race, pointed bluntly to the "dan- gerous fracture" that might re- sult In a letter to Christian Demo- crat party chief Aldo Moro, Sara- gat refused to withdraw his can- didacy and throw his party into support of the Christian Democrat candidate.

Their meetings had been marked by sharp and pointed words. The final communique re- flected some of the debate. Conference spokesmen had re- ported that the ministers general- ly approved Washington's current efforts to sound out the porspects of. a Berlin agreement with the Russians. But the communique said only that the ministers took note of the U.S.-Soviet exploratory talks. This noncommittal wording was due to French reservations about the value of such talks. On nuclear policy, the communi- que said it had "been decided to set up special procedures which will enable all members of the alliance to exchange information concerning the role of nuclear weapons in NATO defense." This meant acceptance of a U.S. proposal for greater consultation on the use of nuclear weapons so that America's allies can better understand the destructiveness and consequences of nuclear war. France, which reportedly would prefer information on how to make atomic bombs, was known to consider the U.S. proposal in- adequate----- The' new procedure will enable NATO nations to see comprehen- sive American nuclear studies previously classified as top secret. Actual bomb-making techniques still will be denied the allies. Informed sources said this U.S. initiative stems from the Kennedy administration's belief that the tactical use of nuclear weapons would almost certainly set off a general nuclear war. The Ameri- cans feel that conventional infan- try, armor and artillery are need- ed more than ever, and they hope information on the horrors of the nuclear alternative will spur the allies to speed up fulfillment of their conventional arms commit- ments. The proposal for an independent NATO nuclear force was'pushed into the background. While Secre- tary of State Dean Rusk said he still was .ready to consider pro- posals for such a force, -it was apparent that pressure for NATO to have its own nuclear deterrent has faded appreciably since the 'ministers' December meeting.
