MASON was animated, friendly and ow NATO's, arsenar of American PARIS Secretary of; Slate Dean Rusk today began a round of consultations with North Atlantic Treaty Organization mili- tary and political leaders after a meeting with French President Charles de Gaulle that, made no real progress toward smoothing differences between France and the United States. Rusk arrived in Paris on Tues- day for the first slop on n West European tout to shore up Ihe uni- ty of NATO. American sources said his initial talk with De Gaulle searching but that it didn't budge the French leader. Rusk met first today with Gen. Laurls Norstad, NATO supreme commander, and then talked wilh Ambassador Thomas K. Finlettcr, the permanent U.S. representative of the 15-nallon NATO Council. There was no immediate indica- tion of the substance of their talks.

The' afety zone around Johnston ex- ended 530 miles at sea level at all irections The announcement carefully not- ed that the nuclear device posed no danger to human life or haz- ardous levels of radioactivity at he ocean but made no mention of possible effects on ocean life. The comment apparently was piompted by a complaint by the Soviet Union following the June 4 ailure, that the debris threatened ish and contaminated the area where it fell.
