The main problem confronting Ihe foreign ministers of the 12 nations, as they open their three-day meet- Ing. Is how much thye can afford to spend on defense without stifling economic recovery. Some of the nations' 'military chiefs have recommended hi secret reports far more troops and equipment than their economic experts say they can pay for. The Hlg Three decision to keep West Germany an armed camp was announced last night, U stressed for the first time the defensive nature of the occupation troops, rather than their police duties. Another upshot of the three-day meeting between America's Secretary of State Acheson, Britain's Ernest Bcvln and Prunuc's Hobcrl Schuman was their refusal lo give the go-ahead on German peace ircaty ncgollallons now.
