PAG1 TWO BLYTBTVILLl! (AM.) COUKM Bradley May Get Atlantic Pact Job General is Boomed v As Key Figure in ; Knitted Defense Plans WASHINGTON, Sept. 20. (*) — Oen. Omar N. Bradley, chairman of tb* American joint chiefs of staff, appears certain to become the key figure In the Atlantic Pact military organization. The military organization, consisting of a series of defense planning committees, is to be created her* Oct. 5. It Is expected to come up with a set of unified defense plans for the whole Western European - North American - Atlantic Ocean area in about six months. Speed in laying out at least *he gener-' plans of a unified strategy Is considered essential now by the state and defense departments. One reason is Congress may make full- scale American arms aid to Europe at least partly dependent on the existence of such plans. That is one of the major new points in the bill now before the Senate. . While th° American member of the 12-nal'on military organization has yet to be designated by Ihe President, defense and diplomatic officials said there seemed to be no doubt that he would be Bradley. The M-year-old general is noted for getting along with people and getting things done. He la already regarded highly by Europeans as the leader of that school of military planners who contend Wester Europe can and must be held against an; aggression by Russia. In public statements Bradley has declared it to be this government's policy that security. Instead of abandonment and later liberation, Is the keystone for Western European military planning. To that end Bradley has urged Congress to authorize and finance • program of American arms aid to Europe. "The essence of'our overall strategy Is this," he fold Congress July SO. "There is formidable strength and an obvious economy of efforts, resources and manpower In this collective strategy, when each ns- tlon ia capable of its own defense as part of a collective strategic plan." The Atlantic defense setup, which was blueprinted here Saturday by the 11-nation council of fnrelgn ministers, gives the United States a dominant role. State Department officials said other countries insisted it should be that way—an evident recognition of pre-dominant United rtates military power and its importance as a source of military assistance for the other alliance members. •',.
