Is Giving By ELtON C FAY Washiitfton o Defense MarshaU appealed Satur day to the defense ministers o the North Atlantic treaty organ zation NATO to be realistic in the appreciation of the presen critical situation as they shapi the combined force for defensi against communism We must face facts withou prejudice Marshall said in an ad dress prepared for the opening o the NATO defense committee ses sion a meeting at which th French refusal to accept a prop osal for formation of West German army units as part of the inte grated force is due fora thorough going over However Marshall made no di rect reference to that problem in the text of his formal welcoming address He offered some sober words of warning about what can happen if the North Atlantic nations le down in their efforts to builc strong defenses against commu nism Far From Enough We must not sink into com placency or overconfidence for the struggle may only have be gun he said And then at an other point in his speech What has been done so far good as it may be is far from enough The potential collective force of the United Nations was not enough to deter the aggressors in Korea The actual collective forces of the North Atlantic states may not be enough to deter aggression in pur North Atlantic area and definitely is not enough to resist attack Without serious and critical initial losses That gap in our military strength we must now close as quickly as possible Out of this meeting should come definite rec ommendations that not only will make us stronger to meet the pres ent threats but to do so more quickly than part procedure would indicate Marshall also proposed that the peoples of the pact countries be told what each of the nations is giving to the common force He said the people are entitled to a bill of particulars The eyes of the whole world I imagine are focused upon this meeting today he said Our cit izens are eager to ascertain what forces are to beraised how and when and what every nation under the North Atlantic pact will con tribute They are clearly entitled to such information Must Justify Expense Marshall noted that during the next few weeks he will have to go before congress to justify pro posed expenditures of vast sums of money for our mutual aid As part of the recommendations passed up to it from the subordi nate military committee of chiefs of staff the defense committee had before it the proposal for prompt formation of a supreme headquarters with a supreme com mander in charge That recom mendation together with a deci sion on what nation will provide the supreme commander will be handed on to the foreign ministers and governmentsof the 12 mem ber nations A decision within days or weeks at most is prob able REA Okays for Thompson Firm

shortly before midnight Friday when he flew from Charleston W Va in a E17 for conferences Saturday with army officials Eisenhower Willing to Lead Atlantic Pact Army but No Job Offered Yet by Truman Washington Dwight D Eisenhower assured President Truman Saturday that he is will ing to take any uniformed assign ment given him But he said the president had not made any direct proposal for him to take com mand of the North Atlantic mili tary forces The president didnt put the question to me the 5star general said in response to reporters questions after a conference with Mr Truman The exchange however was by no means a complete throwdown of advance reports that the white louse talk would center on the question of Eisenhowers taking command of the 12nation western Europe defense forces Up to Fact Group The job of supreme commander has not yet been created That is up to the North Atlantic pact or janization Eisenhower who was supreme allied commander in Europe in World war II visited the white house as defense ministers of the sact nations met in a session vhich might produce an invita ion for a member country to supply a man to take command Eisenhower took a good deal of he emphasis out of his assertion hat there had been no offer from resident Truman by adding He always knows that I am availablefor duty He said he did not believe the negotiations among the North At antic powers had reached the itage of picking a man Military chiefs of the pact pow ers however have formally rec ommended the appointment of a upreme commander Eisenhower described his 45 minute session with the president is a general talk on where we tood in the world Dodges Politics A reporter at the white house mindful that Eisenhower has been iroposed again for the republican residential nomination in 1952 sked him what difference it would make politically if he ac epted the defense assignment Smiling Eisenhower replied I have no intention of doing n 1952 anything different from vhat I am doing now The tacit understanding has een that if Eisenhower accepts uch an assignment he will agree o don his uniform again for only year to get the defense forces rganized That could leave the vay open for a return to civilian misuits such as his presidency of Columbia university in the presi entialpicking year of 1952 Wage Dispute May Tie Up U S Phones New York longsmoul dering wage dispute in the huge

main issue is wages al though union security travel allowances and the term of the contract also figure in the dispute The union has demanded a substantial increase without naming a figure and has turned down every offer made so far by the company Western Electric has offered an average increase of 115 cents an hour but Beirne declared it was poorly distributed throughout the various wage
