to step down was taken after a meet ing with his Cabinet Friday The resignation plunges this Atlantic Alliance nation into un expected political crisis Only a few weeks ago it had appeared that Moro

Defense Robert S McNa maras statement to Congress that more supporttype units mst be provided for the regular Army inasmuch as it appears desirable to be in a position to deploy additional forces without calling up Reservists The other indication lies in the decision to create a new 18000 man division for the regular Marine Corps Last summer when the ad ministration decided to commit
