(AP) — Senalor Connally (D-Tex) lold the Senate today the United States mnst help Western Europe rearm in order to "keep ourselves and our friends free from war and the threat of war." Connally opened debate on the $1,314,010, foreign arms .program. Endorsed by the Foreign Relations Committee, which Connally heads, the program Is the administration's latest move to strengthen (rlendly nations against Communism. Without mentioning Russia by name, Connally said that one European power now has 6,000,000 men under arms while Western European nations have little in the way of arms lo protect themselves. He added: "In this shrunken world in which we now live, we cannot afford to permit our friends to remain so weak that Ihey will Invite aggression and be picked off one by one like pigeons In a shooting gallery." This weakness, he said, "invites aggression and aggression, if allowed to continue, inevitably brings war in its wake."

The portion of the dividend computation formula omitted called for multiplying (he number of months a policy has been held by the amount of insurance carried I n thousands of dollars. This results In a factor that could increase by as high as ten times the amount obtained from using the formula as" Is was published. After multiplying these two figures, the next Is to multiply Ihls product "iv the dividend rate.
