From well Informed insiders, however, it can be reported that the Intention of some of the President's advisers at least is to provide a comprehensive rather than a single- shot program. Hence speculation on tho pattern this nation's political-military re- lations with the western bloc may eventually to Presi- dent Truman's approval and deci- sions by these possibilities: revival of military Icnd- leose. of what would amount in fact to a military alli- ance between the United States and the European countries. of military missions. high-command, rela- tions.
