France llaly. Holland. BelBium, Luxembourg. Porln- gal. Norway, Denmark. Iceland and Canada. Defense Needs Stressed Spofford is said lo nave instructions from Washington to urge the other pact members to pay out more for defense needs. Reports from Ihe U.S. capital say President Truman is prepared lo ask Congress for a new $ arms tlrf program for Western Europe. Some Atlantic Pact members, torn between 3 desire for security and the need for patching up I heir lorr economies, are re[»orted unwilline t< shoulder any heavier military bur dens at this point. Britain, spending between 20 and • Zft per cent of her annual budget on defense, is almost sure to run into opposition from an influential group of leftist, but non-Communist, legislators who argue that a steppcd- up rearmament program would be disastrous to the country's alrearij ever-taxed economy. Brifnns Being Prepared ^There were indications over th fcekeiid, however, that the Labor government is preparing Britons for sacrifices in the interest of defense War Minister John Strachcy as sert^d last night that some of the present plans for domestic recover may have to be thrown overboard i view of the current situation. • -Defense Minister Emanuel Shin well told a Durham nudience Saturday that his task is to "promot adequate defense." Prime Minister Atliee has alrcadj promised to match in some Tva; President Truman's call for ail-on defense efforts. France—about. 550,000 froops a home and abroad. Italy—limited by the Kaliai peace treaty to ^.10.000 men, she I... nell below that figure. j Denmark—might muster up 150,000 men. Norway—up lo ISO.OOfl men. Belgium—could put nearly 80,000 men in the field. Holland—up In 30,000. West Germany—no arm.y. The United States.'
