The United States and the West are now growing stronger, but the Soviet Empire is building upj its military power even more rapid- ly. There is no reason for imme- diate alarm, but there are grave reasons to be alarmed about the future. The best-reason is the fact that the atomic field is the most signifi- cant area of change. Soviet output of atomic weapons is massive and increasing. The Soviets are rapidly expanding and improving their means of delivering these weapons to American targets. American air defenses are conspicuously weak. And the Soviet air defense in depth By JACK BELL WASHINGTON Richard M. Nixon of California said today both he and Gen. Dwight D.

What needs to be done is likely to prove both drastic and unpleasant. So much has already been sug- gested in a previous report on the real issues confronting the country, which are not being discussed in the current presidential campaign. But there are other issues not being mentioned, other vast problems which the next president must also solve. For instance, when the new president enters the White House, he will be overwhelmed by a posi- tive avalanche of skeletons from the cupboard where they keep the problems of our allies. For these problems, the situation of our major ally, Britain, can serve as a convenient symbol. Very few people in this country seem to have noticed it; but Bri- tain has only narrowly avoided total bankruptcy this summer. It was a very close shave. A final, disastrous run on sterling was barely averted, with the assistance of heavy infusions of American-aid dollars. And this close shave has already produced certain truly rad- ical results. Outlook for Britain On the one hand, the British policymakers and most of their op- posite numbers have just about abandoned hope of getting Britain on an even economic keel on the present basis of affairs. The fever, they say, did not kill the patient this time, but the disease itself has riot been cured and cannot be cured without new remedies. Among the remedies being vaguely and rather nervously discussed are liberalization of American tariff policy to permit Britain to export more to this country; and an An- glo-American stabilization fund to maintain a better dollar-sterling relation. It is hard to imagine two projects more likely to arouse Con- gress. By the same token, the spring and summer economic crisis has forced the Churchill government to take a new look at the British de- fense program. This has led into a new look at the plan for West Euro- pean defense elaborated by Gen. Eisenhower. Together with many Air Force planners here, the British now be- lieve that the NATO program must be revised. They want more em- phasis on air power, more empha- sis on new weapons, and a reduced call for naval power and ground divisions in the line. Forces so bal- anced, the British say, will be both better and cheaper. It is hard to imagine anything more likely to arouse the French, Germans and other continental allies than this (Continued on Page 3, Column 8.)

Coos Bay off the Southern California coast ear- ly today. Coast Guard headquarters said the Swedish vessel radioed that part of the Coos Bay crew had taken to lifeboats but some men remained aboard. There was no report of casualties. The Stratus reported its bow stove in above the water line. It said the Coos Bay had a large hole in the port side and may be taking water. No medical assistance was asked. In Radio Contact Radio contact with the cargo ves- sel came more than an hour after the Coast Guard first received a message on the distress frequency saying only, "Colliding with Amer- ican ship called Coos Bay, position seven miles west of Anacapa Is- land.'- The later message corfect- ed the position to six miles east of the island. That would be offshore from Ven- tura, Calif. Heavy fog was reported all along the coast. When communication was re- newed, the Stratus reported it had sent its lifeboats alongside the damaged American vessel but re- maining members of the crew re- fused'to come aboard. The Stratus asked for two tugs which are be- ing dispatched from here and said it will stand by until tugs arrive. Converted LST The Coos Bay is a converted LST i of tons net used to haul lum- 'ber. The Stratus is listed as tons net. The Coast Guard immediately dispatched ships from here and from Santa Barbara. The latter was expected to reach the general area about 4 a.m., PDT. The cutter Morris from Long Beach was not expected to arrive until'two hours later. The Marine Exchange identified the type of ships involved and es- timated the Stratus would carry a crew of from 20 to 30 men and the Coos Bay from 10 to 15. Stratus was headed from San Francisco to Los Angeles Harbor en route to Brisbane, Australia. The Coos Bay left San Pedro today bound for Coos Bay, Ore. tiac, and Hamtramck, a Detroit j consin, but only after the Sept. 9 Lewis Gives ontract otice Marines Poke Through-burned wreckage of a Skyraider attack plane after it exploded on the ranch of W.

(AP Wirephoto) Four New Jets Given Tests on Navy Carriers By VERN HAUGHLAND WASHINGTON UP) The Navy disclosed today that four new jet fighter planes have been given their first tests aboard a carrier. Three of them the single- engine XFJ-2 Fury and F9F-6 Cougar and the twin- engine Chance-Vought F7U-3 are those which Navy Secretary Kimball re- cently described as new Navy planes which will be "better than the Russian MIG." When and if the three are or- dered into production, they will be the first of the Navy's swept- wing carrier-based fighters. They are the first to have low speed stability required for land- ing in limited space, along with the high speed capability that swept-back wings provide. The fourth is the twin-engine, straight-wing F2H-3, a new model of the McDonnell Banshee. All are faster, more maneuverable and more powerful than types now in use. Farewell Tree OSHAWA. Canada A. M.

Lewis has given formal notice that his contracts with the coal industry will expire at the end of Septem- ber. This set up the possibility of a nationwide coal strike at that time. The Taft-Hartley Labor Act re- quires that the government be in- formed of a labor dispute at least 30 days before the work contract expires. Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers Union, gave federal mediators the required notice that, contractors with both the soft and hard coal industry will run out then, these officials said. This it has done before a strike providing no agreement on a new contract is reached by the end of September. The notice was signed by the union's general counsel, Welly Hop- kins. UMW headquarters here said this morning it had no comment on the matter. Lewis has been negotiating off and on since July 24 with Harry M. Moses, president Bitu- minous. Coal Operators Association, and Joseph E. Moody, president of the Southern Coal Producers Asso- elation. His negotiations with. Moody did not start until the be- ginning of this month. Sixty days notice is required be- fore the expiring contracts between the UMW. and the industry can be ended. Lewis gave his 60-day notice to Moses, who bargains for 240 million. tons of coal a year, on July 22. That means he could legally take his Northern soft coal diggers out of the pits about Sept 22. His contract expiration notices to j Moody and the anthracite industry I were given on Aug. 1. Thus Lewis' hard-coal miners i and Southern diggers could not (tract until the end of next month. ULClJ.
