PAGE TWO BLYTHKVILMS (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MAT 1, 1M| U.S. Urges Europe Complete Defense Union in 3 Weeks By JOHV M, H1GHTO1VEK WASHINGTON Lfl ~ The United States is pressing West Germany, France and other West European government to complete Ihcir new defense union In three weeks without fall. Othrwise, the Europeans have been told, the necessary follow- tliroughs *n 'his country may not be possible before Congress adjourns for the July political conventions, In that cnse United States ratification would have to go over until next year — utter the presidential elections — and officials here fear this not only would delny the rearmament of West Germany but would create uncertainty in Europe over the future course of American policy. May 20 Set As I);ile The outside target dfito which the State Department is now urging for final agreement among the European nations on the treaty is May 20. France and West Germany are the principal countries, although Italy and the Low Countries are participants in the project. The nim is to form a European defense community which would organize n defense force to serve as part ot the North Atlantic Treaty army. The whole arrangement began as a French device to keep check on the rearming of Western Germany. The United States has supported it both as a means of getting West German troops and resources into the defense setup and as step in the direction of German unity. Three New Treaties The undertaking will produce three new international treaties or agreements, two of which will require action by the United Stales. These are: 1. The European Defence Pact. This basic treaty binding; (he six Western nations Is still imdcr negotiation on such critical points as voting arrangements and the sharing of costs. The United States "Will have no responsibility In this. 2. The "Peace Contract" between Western Germany and the occupation powers — the United Stales, Hritnin and France. This is regarded as n temporary substitute for an all-German pence treaty — xnd the U. s. government has decided to submit it to the Senate for action. The purpose is to give icndcnce. 3. An amendment — or protocol — to Uifi North Atlantic Treaty, The idea of this, which will require Senate approval is to extend to Western Germany the .security guarantees which all the members of the North Atlantic Treaty have. These arc based on the premise that an attach on one Is an attack on all. Commodity And Stock Markets— N«w York Cotton >.«..

Hnwcv- cr, a close source that requested anonymity said: "The next move .seems to b^ up to Mr, Aturrciy." He added: "It is doubtful tf the mills will be back in operation at once, whatever happens. Shutting 1 down and opening up steel mills is a costly business. We can't shut (hem clown one day because of one court opinion, then open them up the next because of another opinion." Little Damage Results The steel plant shutdown, speediest in history, wns accomplished with a minimum of damage to costlv steel-making machinery according to all reports. A few plants still are closing oft furnaces slowly to prevent damage. Some coin- panics, like Jones & Laughlln Steel Corp. in Pittsburgh, thanker! their employes for helping prevent damage. In Chicago, an ore boat — the E. J. Block owned by Inland Slcol —• wns prevented from getting through thu Indiana harbor cfinal to the big In!nnd plant. Pickets mns.scd on a bridge, keeping it from being raised to clear the boat, It is now moored in the canal. Meanwhile, ninny of the strikers arc bewildered. Some are resentful. Leaders here and there scoff at what they call "in attain, out Agnln'L decisions affecting the vital industry. With defense production stalled in plants of nearly 100 basic steel companies, the strikers stuck doggedly to picket lines, asserting: <£'Whnt else,, can \vc dO|\mttt \ve know for sure who's running the show?"
