Behind the scenes discussions of the State of North Atlantic Treaty defenses reflect a widespread concern over the total defensive strength of the non-Communist world. The tense world situation Is gen eralins new pressures inside the rovcrnmont for some degree of .home front mobilization in ordei to increase armament production. See Lonjj Struggle ^ Another and more direct pressure for Marshalling more of America's resources for war Is said to arise iflpni the mounting evidence that, ute United States is In for a long and costly struggle in Korea. So far there is a conflict of requirements between the urgent buildup of forces fighting In Korea and the PJuropoan arms aid program as presently scheduled. Without a swift and substantial l increase of arms manufacturing here, some authorities 'say weapons, which were destined for Europe may have to be "borrowed" for the Far East. They deplore Hits necessity because in both military and diplomatic strategy, Europe, rather than' Asia, is rated as the primary focus of American security interests. One move to speed up Joint European and American defense arrangements is already planned. Charles M. Spofford, Secietary of I State Acheson's deputy on the North Atlantic Treaty Council, Is slated to leave here /or London shortly after his 'expected confirmation by the Senate in a few days. He will meet with deputies of other Atlantic foreign ministers to organize thb council in London on a permanent basts. The problem of meeting defense preparations probably will be one of the first questions, taken up by the group.
