(~VJ1| j|g ^a yc Atom Weapons For NATO By KACEY Full harvest moon rode last night. At sunset time eastern sky was bordered Contemplation balls appeared as season openers. All the men seem determined with vicious facial expressions and menacing gestures. Out of uniform high thev appear as likeable gents but the with pastel bands of pink and blue with ivory moon globe perched on the palest pink band. It'seemed close enough that one could touch it if one reached high enough. Driving to Leavenworth from the Missouri side the town was a hedgerow of jagged darkness with the mass of the disciplinary barracks squatting over the river, the stiff spear of the headquarters clock from Federation headquarters. (tower at Fort Leavenworth and the prison water tower the only rising break in the mass. The lights of town were not turned on yet. Hundreds of delegates, representing N.F.F.E. locals throughout the country, in the possessions, and overseas, and every Federal department and agency except the postal service, are gathering here today for the opening of the organization's 35th anniversary convention. The National Federation of Federation o[ Federal Employes, independent and unaffiliated, is the oldest and largest organization of .public employes in the United States. The N.F.F.E., which was pioneered in the establishment of a modern, progresssive personnel policy for the Federal Government, will consider at this convention more than 500 resolutions presented by the organization's locals throughout the world. Among the objectives set forth in these resolutions are extension of the merit system to cover all except the top policy-making positions; a wage policy whicli will enable the federal government to attract and hold the most competent men and women; a realistic approach to all federal employment problems, at all- levels, in the light of present-day conditions; creation of a more general understanding of the realities of federal employment, which differ widely from the constant barrage of misstatements and misrepresentation about the service and its emplo- yes; improvement and liberalization of the federal retirement system; repeal of arbitrarily restrictive "riders" affecting personnel and recognition by the Congresss of the inequity and inefficiency of legislating on complex personnel matters by amendments tacked onto appropriation bills; adoption of a permanent and effective p r o- gram to protect the Government and people of the United States, and loyal federal employes, from disloyal elements; greater advan- ; cement opportunities for qualified employes; true time and a half for overtime; arid many others. for the sports page picture they go all out to prove they are tough agents.

And then just around the corner on Fifth and Shawnee, two men were on a ladder repairing the building's air conditioners. The people hurrying to work wore sweaters and jackets and commented in turn to the workmen on the veathers's. In commenting on the driver of he pale green delivery truck, the girl remarked, "He's more of an xpert at running his mouth than •unning that truck." and Ottawa are bids for the ima-\ieachins city recreation programs, gination.

S. Army chief of staff, said Saturday North Atlantic Treaty forces in Europe eventually will be supported by atomic weapons. The general told a news conference that discussions are under way for integrating weapons, including artillery and guided missiles, into the European forces. He added, however, that such weapons "were not immediately available." Collins said such weapons "can add materially to the ability of' Western Europe to defend itself." He warned, however, that "it would be a mistaken idea to believe that the number of divisions immediately required in Europe could be reduced" by use of new weapons. Collins said the weapons would, of course, lessen the size of future defensive forces but that for the present Europe will need to live up to its schedule of military expansion, in order to be more effective in defense against possible attack. Collins refused to say how soon atomic weapons would be coming off U. S. assembly lines but conceded it will be in "less than 10 years." He added that "we don't believe the Russians have any atomic artillery but we cannot be certain," and said that all planning is based on the assumption that they might have it. enth grade; grade.
