The generals, led by U. s.' Gen. Matthew Ridgway, supreme Allied commander in Europe, caution that the Soviets may be approaching Ihe strength they need to overrun the continent at the same time that Europe relaxes in over-confidence. That confidence is based upon the improved unity of the Western alliance. But crucial days lie ahead for the North Alantic community. The- Soviets seek to create new disagreements within the West. If umlv is not preserved, fragile peace may crash into the abyss of atomic war. After a penod of uncertainly about lulure American policy, Eu- iope"no\v looks to-'president-elect Elsenhower to provide new drive, inspiration and leadership in its troubled efforts to forge a unified defense community. There Is much hope that defense will take a new spurt forward after Jan. 20, even though Eisenhower may demand Europe trim the fat lo beef up its muscles. Statesmen and soldiers' alike agree that, whatever else the year brings, It will see no let-up in Russia's needling, probing and bullying. But they will have a hard task to keep alive any sense of urgency among masses of Europeans who, more and more, are reassured by Stalin's "peace" talk. Danger Not Passed" Western intelligence, however agrees the danger has by no means passed. Soviet military manpower and supplies are fast being creased behind the Elbe River THere are an estimated 180 Russian and satellite divisions in European Russia and her East European puppets. The aim of the Nortl Atlantic Treaty Organization was 96 divisions and 9,000 by 1054. Bi that goal became only a dream In mid-December when NATO cut i 1053 program because of confi dence among politicians, combine) with public pressure to cut ex penses. In this Russian-encircled eastern most European outpost of the West ern world, some top flight intelll gence men appraise the cold wai outlook for 1953 as follows: Russia, rather than the \Vcs( controls the situation. It can tak the initiative and make the Wc.s jump. What Russia will do ma; depend upon developments within ' the Western alliance. and Son Born to Woman Who Defied Death for Child ' LOS ANGELES (AP) t — A son was born today to Mrs. Jean Garett by Caesarian section, an operation which doctors said will shorten her life if she survives at all.

They said the next move probably would depend on U. S. President- elect Eisenhower's attitude on the question. Several factors were mentioned as indicating that the stnlln state ment on Korea might rate serious consideration: ,1. The truce talks In Korea — now long deadlocked—were a dircc result of a Soviet govern declaration that It would help brinf, about a Korean settlement.

The Westerners pointed out, however, that this Stalin declaration failed lo represent anything new. Also, many questions, including where such a meeting might be held, would have to be settled before It could ever lake place. On previous occasions, the Soviet Premier has indicated tils willingness to join the- heads of the United States and Britain In direct talks. But It always has been stressed that Stalin's health prevented him from taking any long •journeys—to America, for example.

No Fresh Hope Stalin has on several occasions In the .past-) responded to written questions posed by U. S. newsmen and almost invariably he has expressed a belief that a U.
