The tests showed the new gun can be fired (aster than either the United State*' s«ml-automatic .30 caliber Garand or the old British .303 bolt action Enfield, but lacks their penetration and shocking power. The new weapon will be thoroughly checked. However, by a committee of the Atlantic Treaty Organization. The group will report its findings to the Atlantic Treaty foreign ministers this fall and they will decide whether to adopt the gun lor Pact, nations. At present the Garand Is top nominee for the infantry weapon in proposed standardization of western arms. 84 Shots & Minute In yesterday's tests the new gun poured out 84 shots a minute aft compared to 43 for the Garand atic 28 for the Enfield, but its penetration through wood proved slightly less than the American gun. The odd-looking machine has small metal butt in place of the conventional stock, and carries a telescopic sight. American observers objected U: the new weapon on grounds tha the ammunition it uses Ls too llgh to go up against enemy armor. It also was pointed out that th complex mephantsm o! the gun ha not yet been tested under battl conditions and no one knows ye how production models will stan up.

Meanwhile, in O'.uwa the Can^ dian defense ministry said th«Western Allies have accepted a new ntl-tank shell being made In Canda as a standard weapon. The shell, called the "sabot" was described as the "last word"- in armor-piercing effectiveness. It is being produced for the n-pounder anti-tank gun, but can be made in various sizes- cy to circumvent the law by marketing steam-generated electricity. 3.
