NATO Plans New Defense Strategy By JOSEPH E. DYNAN PARIS (fP) Leaders of the free world today adopted a new defense strategy based on atomic firepower and agreed on the way new weapons can be used in the event of an attack by the Communist bloc. The foreign, defense and finance ministers of the 14 North Atlantic Treaty powers set tho rcle of atomic weapons during a tightly closed session. They promised a communique on their decision later today or tomorrow. After adoption of defense plans drafted by the chiefs of staff of NATO members, giving nuclear firepower a place in NATO's "new look" arsenal, the ministers excluded most of their advirers from the closed meeting. Then they took iip the controversial, question of who ran decide on a re&roi , to atomic arms military men or their governments. No immediate word on this .discussion leaked put, and 'NATp press officials would "say only tha,t the ministers had reached, agreement. . f - - " -t7* n *' ~ for the Vfe-million-dollar channel- clearing job on Little Missouri River.and Ozan Creek. Pike County lacks only two cut- o£f permits, and Hempstead only one cutoff permit and a set of three easements from an owner last reported to* be in Fairbanks, Alaska, Judge Garrett said today. The Corps of Engineers men told Judge Garrett the other three interested counties, Nevada, Clark, and Ouachita, also have their easement job virtually complete* The county governments must obtain easements on property, access permits, and cutoff permits, from all affected landowners before the federal agency can advertise for contract bids. If the last of this legal detail can be wrapped up and put on file at the five county courthouses this month the Corps of Engineers wil be able to make a,,start on the river and creek project early in 1955. It will probably take si: months to complete the work. .-•''•• ; Little Missouri will be cleared pfj all snags, but the work will follow only that part of the present channel which is to .be used, plus the channel in the new cutoffs — disregarding the sections of the old channel which are tp: be abandoned. ive.'

Judge Garrett pointed out that the fees received for such jobs go into the county's road funds and enable the county to give the taxpayers better highways than they would have otherwise. He said that such outside business as the county's road equipment does, works a double benefit: It enables farmers and othgrs to have work done for which heavy equipment frequently has been unavailable from any other source; and it gives the county an equipment inventory much larger than it could otherwise afford, for the benefit of the public roads. Judge Garrett disclosed today that Hempstead County has just bought black-topping equipment — looking to the day when the county roads may be made dustless.

MacKenzie, RCAF fighter ace released this month by the Chinese Communists, was held in solitary confinement for 16 months until he signed a 'statement saying he had "invaded Chinese air space," government spokes men said today. A statement on MacKenzie's interview early this week with Defense Minister Ralph O. Campney end External Affairs Minister Lester B.

The two ministers said the report MacKenzie gave them showed that the "'-fact is he was not briefed to fly over China and did not knowingly do so. • The two cabinet ministers charged that his detenion by the Chinese for two years was a violation of Article 51-A of 'the Korean truce agreement.

Chinese inter, rogators sought to make him ad mil he had been briefed to patrpl over China, that he had been shol down over China and had lander in China.
