Can Ease NATO Fears And Still Build Defenses The Paris meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Council wns dominntetl, as expected, by. military indecision and economic caution. Not until sprinjf, when the new Eisenhower administration will have had a chance to shape Its policies, can we look for firm plans for the future, of European defense, p. About the only concrete decision taken at Paris was the approval of a $239,600,000 outlay in 1953 for new. military bases and communications installations ill tlie European theater. It seems clear that no matter iv h n t General Eisenhower may propose as President, Western Europe will not shake off its "go slow" mood. Typical of the present attitude were the^statements of British Foreign Secretary Anthony E<len and French Defense Minister Rene Pleven. Said Eden: "We have to be careful not to overtrain our economies." Said Plevdn: "We all agreed we must avoid an economic crisis.". At the heart of this mood are two things: First, Europe's evident doubt that the threat of war is lirgbnt and immediate. The Europeans take confidence, Ironically, from the defense buildup Hint has occurred so far; and from the' knowledge the U. S. is pledged to assist them from tht moment any war should begin. Second, the Europeans' fear of the political consequences of loo-great defense burdens. Perhaps much of this fear is legitimate. Certainly no sauo supporter of the free world would want to risk unseating the relatively stable middle-road governments now holding power. Yet European leaders may well be overplaying the political dangers. Since they make a practice of keeping uapnlat- ibie truths from their peoples, no one • can judge with fine accuracy how the citizenry would respond to a frankly presented program of defense which stressed, perhaps, a moderately urgent note. Nor is the test likely lo be made in the months just ahead. At Paris the NATO council members put stress on raising- the quality of existing forces in 1953, and equipping them more fully. Military men still hope for another 10 divisions to add to tlie 50 now counted, but they will be working uphill. Eisenhower may be able to impart lo NATO countries greater'sense of urgency than they have.' But as NA'l'O commander he never quite achieved that, nor did.lie dispel the politicians' fear of heavy arms burdens. Possibly tlie best contribution t h e general could make toward th« success BLYTHBVIU.E (AUK.)

" For journalistic.Truth The other day the UN's General Assembly approved an agreement affecting Hie world's press, a so-called "right of correction" treaty. Underneath the verbal shrubbery, this treaty would provide that any nation which feels itself damaged by news reports or other material printed in another country's newspapers can ask thtf second nation lo distribute "corrections" to the general press. In other words, if the U. S. papers printed something France didn't like, or regarded as an injury, thtn at French request the U. S. government would hand out a corrective statement to salve wounded French feelings. The United States very sensibly voted against this proposal, and fortunately there is virtually no chance the U. S. Senate will now ratify it. I''or it would mean any paper could not print what it might regard as tlie truth about another country without being practically compelled, by the nature of its government origin, to give space to an answering statement which could well be nothing but deceiving propaganda. The mere printing of the reply would appear to suggest that the original story was erroneous, an implication that often would be wholly misleading. This hardly sounds like the way to promote the quest of truth In journal- Ism. • Views of Others Bang! We sometimes grow impatlfnl with the patronizing approach to every facet of th« American culture, whether the criticism b« foreign voiced or homegrown. However, we must admit that Hollywood — that Implacable fee of realism — gives Ins carpers every gambit they could possibly need.

Their dispatched of the day following reported accurately the official Pentagon line: It took time to get bnck In production. Field commanders some-. .lines shoot off everything they isve on ' tinnd. The only way lo satisfy them was to buy far loo much. Congress hns been slow tn making appropriations. And after all, "the responsibility lands on the American people as much as anybody." When Defense Secretary Robert A. Lovett returned to Washington from -the North Atlantic Treaty Council meeting In Paris ho was greeted by these dispatches. He Immediately sent for a transcript of the press conference. It fan to 30 typewritten pages, single- spaced. Felt Bras* Overstated Their Case The secretary read this with amazement. He let H he known that he felt the Army had overstated ila case. The Army's side of the story was characterized as a righteous piece of self-serving seldom surpassed. The fact ts thnt Department of Defense officials have been trying to get this Korean ammunition supply problem licked for over a ynar without success. Since September Secretary Lovett has bad Hugh Dean, a retired General Motors vice president, as defense expediter. His top priority problem hns been ammunition supply. The mnjor shortages are in 105 and 155-mm. artillery shells. Field commniuters like to have a 90-dny supply on hand tn tlie theater of operations. These reserves are not on the ground in Korea/ at this time, nnd that accounts for ration- Ing of heavy artillery shells. As General Reeder explained It, the 90-day reserve Is really a six months 1 ' reserve If you keep the pipeline filled clear back to the U. S, arsenals. Production of shell - loading plants is at varying- rates. Some plants are operating two 10-hour shifts n day, six days a week. Others are oti a one-shift operation.
