NATO Defence Study Urged WASHINGTON (AP) An immediate assessment of North Atlantic Treaty Organization de- fences in the Mediterranean is recommended by the anti-sub- marine warfare subcommittee of the House of Representatives. It also says the United States 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean has "serious deficiencies" as a result of reduced operations, de- spite the present Middle East tension and increased Soviet naval operations there. "The greatly increased Sovie naval activities in the Mediter ranean together with the Sovie ability to use the northern shores of Africa on short notice require that there be a reorien tation of NATO defence strat tlie report said.

At the grave side, as Rev. A a 1 b u e ended the Lord's Prayer, a keg of beer was set near the coffin. The glasses filled, including one placed on the head of the coffin, a final solemn toast was made to "the best biker that ever was."

U.S. Raihvays Seek Increase WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. railways are asking for a fifth increase in freight rales in four years.

American Explorer Plans New Antarctic Expedition EDMONTON (CP) An Am- erican explorer who led a suc- cessful snowmobile expedition to the north pole in 10G8 says his party lias a "burning desire" to be the first men to reach boll] poles. Ralph Plaisted, 42, Duluth, Minn., says he has the men, supplies and equipment ready [or an Antarctic expedi t i o n which has been planned De- cember-January. Attending the Internal i o n a 1 Snowmobile and Winter Fun Show here during the weekend, Mr. Plaisted said final clear- ance for the trip to the south pole depends on transportation from New Zealand. He said he lias approached Shutouts Comes Hard During Ihe first half of iiie American season Stan Bahnsen Fritz Peterson wore the only New York Yan- kees lo register shutouts. the United States armed forces which fly regularly into the Ant- arctic. With one aircraft they could transport the expedition to the base camp at McMtircte Sound. However, Mr. Plaisted said this clearance has not been granted so far. Wind might be the major problem during a south pole trip. "It can get to 100 miles an hour and at 40 to 50 below zsro the wind chill can be pretty rough." Experiences during the 43- day mile trip to the north pole and return indicate the Antarctic trip will not be easy. "However, we have a burning desire to be the first men to reach both poles."
