Kohler. In advance of Kohler's takeoff. Secretary of State Dean Rusk scheduled a midafternoon news conference at which reporters planned to ask about further steps in Kennedy's broad program of counter measures against the worldwide Communist threat. Conference in August Kohler and a half dozen aides will meet with diplomatic teams from Britain, West Germany and France to do advance work on the Western Big Four foreign ministers conference to be held in Paris August 5-8. Rusk leaves for the French capital next week. At Paris, the Western foreign affairs chiefs will go over a broad range of the strategies aimed at keeping West Berlin out of Com- munist hands. From Kennedy's standpoint, a major task was to get the North Atlantic Treaty allies to step up their defense efforts too. The al- lies have responded favorably to Kennedy's ideas, but it remains to be seen what action they will take. The president hoped that his in- crease of U. S. defense levels by and men would serve as inspiring leader- ship to the 14 NATO partners. And as an added lever in voi'k- ing up a stiffer NATO defense, he has left vague the exact amount of total contribution the United States is willing to put into the combined effort. It was understood that there is no present intent to send an "ad- ditional U.S. Army division to Europe, although some more of our military men are headed for Europe on combat-support as- signments.

Favorable Reaction McNamara spent nearly four hours in closed-door session with a Senate Appropriations sub- committee Wednesday, explaining the administration's plans for beefing up the nation's military might. The program is geared primari- ly to increasing non nuclear forces so that this country will have, as McNamara put it, "a great range of military alterna- tives" for meeting Soviet moves.
