(AP)_ The last obstacle to an Atlantic Council recommendation that Greece and Turkey be brought into the North' Atlantic Treaty apparently was swept away today by a Danish government decision to vote for such action. Military leaders of the Atlantic Alliance were reported already at work on plans to set up a new NATO Middle Bast command centered on Turkey but designated to create a common strategy for anti-Communist forces throughout that area of the world. ' These plans, it was learned were tentatively shaped up by the top- mf'l standing group of the NATO Whtary committee. The centra! Idea of a Middle East command separate from General Dwight D' Eisenhower's We.-xern European defense structure, is .understood to have gotten the backing of the United States Joint Chief., of Staff 10 Declare Support Of the 12 nations in the Atlantic Alliance, 10 had declared Monday and Tuesday their support for an American proposal to extend the alliance into the Middle East, although there were various criticisms or the project. An nth country Norway, objected but made clear that it alone would not stand in the way of the required unanimous vote. That left Foreign Minister Ole Bjorn Kraft of Denmark in the position of blocking final action, Bince his government, was opposed the light o JKirke ^uirefl to the proposition. In „.„ llgllll of the overwhelming majority lineup, he asked new instructions. Extension Opposed . ' Denmark; has opposed extension of the pact into the eastern Mediterranean region but reconsidered It* position in view of the almost solid lineup of Allied countries in favor. _ Should the vote bar Greece and key—unanimous consent is re_ red, to amend the . treaty—it.

SEPTBMBKR 10, 1051 CAIRO, 111., Sent. 19. <AP)—The unwed mixed foursome who began a highly publicized nautical trip two months ago today fearfully tried out tricky Mississippi River currents and voted to sail on Destination New Orleans's 926 river miles from the Ohio River mouth. The 24 year old blonde skipper- ette, Miss Mary Ellen McCrady made this comment on the singular status of the crew—two BUS'S two gnls: "It may seem a little funny or odd for such an unorthodox social arrangement but people just don't realize that from our daily routine and hard work there is little possibility for temptation or romance." For a lime they debated calling the whole thing off at Cairo even CottonStates SIXTEEN PACKS though, Miss McCrady said they have a contract with Collier's magazine for their adventure story and pictures. Fears for their safety were j aroused by rivermcn's warnings that the rickety raft was no match for the treachedous "Miss." Tuesday Cairo boatmen took them six miles down the big river—their first lime on it. Said Don Drown: "It looks pretty simple;" Milton Borden: "Like riding on top of a chocolate milk shake," and the skippereUc: "We will buy some more life jackets." There'll be an extra life jacket for the new fifth crew member Delilah. She's a mixed bred female dog. given them in place of their first dog. Sampson, lie fell overboard and drowned.

(AP) — Men from the cotton bell states have stepped before n Senate subcommittee here lo l JCi it the drums for higher cotton prices. Moit of them aired a conviction that planters are getting it in tlic neck, because, at official ureiiis, they boosted crop production only' to have prices sag in a summer market lull. Sen. Stennis (D-Miss) was the only member of the Senate armed torces subcommittee on preparedness to make the hearing yesterday. He sat as a committee of one.

In an address prepared tor delivery to the Women's National Press Club, Fechteler said the U.S. can- nat "create or maintain effective defensive frontiers abroad by keeping our weapons and our troops within the continental limits of the United States." Air Alone -Won't-Do '* He asserted: "Air attacks alone will not stop the advance of the Russian army against 'Western Europe. In Korea there has been no appreciable enemy- opposition to our i« e of the air and though we have had a lone of approximately ISO miles over which our air effort was free to operate, there still has been no effective retardation of the enemy advance by means of air alone, including itavnl aviation.

Durham (D-NC), vice chairman of the group, told a reporter thorium is s substance "we can use to fall back upon ii-we have to go into an all- out atomic program." Ferguson said that McMohon's suggestion for substituting atomic for other weapons Is something tho Joint Chiefs of Staff should talk to Congress about. "I'm Surprised" "If what he is saying is tnie I'm greatly surprised that the facts haven't been presented by thc military authorities," the Michigan senator said.

This, he added, although "the fann- er was led to' believe he would receive at least 40 cents a pound."
