The reactor operates in connection with a medical center designed for medical research and therapy.

Canada May Junk Fighter Plan in Support of Missiles OTTAWA Ont. (AP) — Is the Canadian government prepared to have U.S. planes take over the Canadian air force's defense job in Canada? This is one of the factors the government will consider early next year when it will decide whether to order the sleek new CF105 Arrow, « supersonic jet interceptor, into production. Questions have been raised about the wisdom of pouring a tremendous amount of money into a fighter plane at a time when missiles are coming to the fore. Prime Minister John Diefenbaker has estimated that 100 Arrows would cost around 900 million dollars. Tremendous Sams More than 10 per cent of this fiscal year's $1,686,000,000 defense budget has been spent on Arrow development. Tremendous sums have also been spent in past years. Canada is the partner of the United States in the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD). that two U.S. Bomarc guided missile stations would go into opera- quirement for as long as we can It was announced in September terceptor is an "inescapable re- ion in Canada in 1961 at a cost of 164 million dollars. The decision on the Arrow was delayed until spring. A decision is expected by March. Diefenbaker, announcing the building of the Bomarc sites, said: "The government has concluded .hat missiles should be introduced into the Canadian air defense system and that the- number of super- sonjc interceptor aircraft required for the RCAF Air Defense Command will be substantially less ;han could have been foreseen a few years ago (when work on the Arrow was started), if in fact such aircraft will be required at all in the 1960s in view of the rapid strides being made in missiles by the United States and the U.S.S.R." Entire Effort Many people believe the entire defense effort should go into missiles. RCAF Air Marshal Roy Slemon deputy commander of NORAD said, however, that the manned in- see." In this he was supported by U.S. Gen. Earl* Partridge NORAD commander. Behind the scenes, the RCAF seeing the possibility of its end as a flying combat force, added its arguments to the controversy. Jeopardize Position Some RCAF officers said pri vately that cancellation of the Ar row would likely jeopardize Can ada's position in NORAD, that th. United States would not welconn Canada as a full partner when i was supplying only two Bomarc sites to the air defense system. They added that American squadrons might have to taki over RCAF fighter bases. The Canadian government doe not relish the prospect of Amer lean squadrons based in Canad in addition to the two now a Harmon Field, Nfld., and Goost Bay, Labrador. But it must ba ance this against military requirements, costs and other matter when it decides about the Arrow. U. S. Firms Weigh Pros, Cons of Investing Funds in Europe By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)—American firms who have invested four billion dollars in Europe are weighing today the pros and cons of further expansion there. In three weeks six European nations will take ttie first step in the long process that someday will eliminate trade barrjers among them. Gradually, a common tariff and import rules against the products of the rest of the world will be adopted by the Common Market. 6 Nations Involved The six nations are France, Common Market area hope to I well have to be produced abroa PARIS (AP)—Prance appeared xlay to be backed into tight orner In her stubborn fight gainst the British plan to turn Western Europe into a fre* trade rea.

The 3 per cent stipulation was not contained in the Common Market offer. Match Offer Britain offered Monday to match he Common Market offer and threw in the 3 per cent rule for good measure. The negotiators agreed to study two of the direct causes of the deaths of 89 pupils and three nuns in the Our Lady of the Angels School fire. Had fire fighters reached the school as little as three minutes earlier, Robert J, Quinn told a the school alarm, but only after she had led her class out in fire drill formation. The school alarm does not ring in the Fire Department office. When a telephoned alarm did come at 2:42 p.m, said Quinn, the address given was that of the rectory, half a block from the burning school. Firemen had to waste precious moments, he said, coroner's jury investigating the asking where the blaze actually Dec. 1 fire, there might have been no lives lost. Firemen were able to save 160 children, he added. Many of the victims were trapped in their second-floor rooms by heavy, black smoke. Discrepancies Noted Quinn said that there were "definite discrepancies" as to when the alarm was sounded. was. Asked why the Fire Department did not sound an extra alarm as soon as it knew a school was afire, Quinn answered: "It's a good suggestion, but in a case like this, if he had sent 500 companies on the first alarm, it wouldn't have done much good.

Already there are many benefits for them: lower labor costs, increasing productivity, and a fast expanding market in Western Europe for consumer goods. U. S exports have been falling this year, although some now see a turn in the tide. In the first nine months this year, for example, our exports to France were 32 per cent lower than in 1957, to West Germany 24 per cent lower. What this can mean to American manufacturers is pointed out thus by David Rockefeller, vice chairman of the Chase Manhattan IT West Germany, Italy, the Nether- Bank, New York: "Many products, lands, Belgium and Luxembourg, 'particularly in machinery lines, Americans operating within the'that we have been exporting may IHrUUf UttSNaVYV MO»T DRAMATIC MOTION PICTURBI u A Dttpfy Moving Story of a Truly Remarkable Family and i Wonderful Homely 'Old Yellef Dog! > >ARAMOUN Starts Tomorrow AND SHOWING THURS., FRI., SAT.

An analysis of the European Common Market by the Management consultant firm of Booze, Allen & Hamilton International, Ltd., of Zurich, Switzerland, and Washington, D. C, shows that most U. S. corporations now operating there favor full ownership of their facilities. Benefits Listed The benefits U. S. plants in the six nations have include these: higher standard of living for the 170 million persons hi the six nations by removing all internal trade ^barriers while keeping a uniform barrier against other nations. The target for achievement of this is 12 to 15 years. Fear Lost Trade Led by Britain and the Scandinavian countries, other West European nations fear their trade with the six nations would be lost and West Europe would be split in two economically. Then want a free trade area of all 17 OEEC nations to remove internal barriers while keeping separate national barriers against trade from outside West Europe. ! The French fear that letting the British, and indirectly the rest of the British Commonwealth, into their markets would hurt their own high-price Industries. Therefore, Paris prefers the smaller six- nation group. As OEEC members, the 17 countries are pledged not to discriminate against each other's trade.

But there wasn't any immediate break in the prewinter cold wave in the East and South. The warming trend, from the Continental Divide into the Midwest, followed more than a week of zero cold and snow. However, temperatures generally were below seasonal levels in most areas and snow was in prospect in Northern sections. It was colder in much of the East and South and more snow piled on top of already snow-covered areas. Freezing weather prevailed in the Carolinas and across | northern Georgia, Alabama and i Mississippi. More frosty air nipped northern Florida. The cold showed little moderation across the Great Lakes re- states, and along the Eastern Seaboard. However, a little warmer weather was indicated. It was freezing at Tallahassee, Fla., early today and near the freezing mark in Cross City, Fla.
