The Franco - American t i f f flared a few moments after West German Defense Minister Fran?. Josef Strauss said the U S. Strategic Air Force might not bo enough of a nuclear deterrent to prevent Russian "chipping away" at Western Europe, He appealed to NATO to build up its strength The NATO powers, especially France, were under stiong pressure from the United States lo increase their own defense strength, backed by Secretary of State Christian A. Horter's promise to keep U.S. military forces In Europe if they will. But the problem was acute and most of the nations involved had some excuse tor their continuing inability to deal with it. The hard facts of unprepared- ness were spotlighted In the NATO year-end survey being do- bated today by the defense ministers of the 15 alliance members. These facts showed only 21 of the 30 divisions considered the absolute minimum for defense are now in being. Only seven intermediate ballistic missile bases have been established along the defense line running from Norway to the Mediterranean. And the anli-aircialt missile chain that should shield Western Europe's great cities and industrial cities is almost nonexistent, Although all of the land units should now be capable of handling nuclear weapons, only the eight American and British divisions have over approached that goal. Gen. Lauus Norslad, the American officer who is NATO's su- piems commander, is said to feel ho hardly could defend Europe Under present conditions if a Soviet attack was attempted, Norslad's deputy, Gen. Joan Valluy, iccently criticised his own homeland, France, for tuinlng its face from NATO at the moment when most military planners argued that defense of Western Europe is possible only if all forces are brought under central command. Issue Must Bo Sellled This was precisely the grout issue which must be settled some lime this week, probably between President Charles do Gaulle and President Eisenhower when they meet privately this week end at start oil Western summit talks. Ilortor said Tuesday the United States originally committed its mllilaiy forces to Europe's defense on tho understanding the whole ot Europe's defense shoitly would be integrated But de Gaulle lecently was quoted as saying "integration has had ils d a y " Tuesday he told parliamentary leaders that while he still supported NATO the defense structure itself should be something more than a simple coalition but rather less than an integrated command. Crash Kills PiSot FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (UPI)-An experimental version of the F-105 Thunderchief jet fighter- bomber crashed Hi the Atlantic Ocean JO miles southwest of Mon- lauk Point at the tip of Long Is- Squaw Valley Session Asked (Continued From Pago One) leased these state holdings to Gushing for 10 years to get him to relinquish use permits on his federal land holdings for tho duration ot the Olympics. This lease was expected to produce about $70,000 to the state, --A 900-car parking lot from which Hanson said the state expected to collect $75,000 a year if it were state operated. --A lease for a gasoline station on which the state would get one cent per gallon. Rental Offer Ftales --At least .13 main buildings, at least four pÂ£ them partitioned into four-person sleeping quarters Also Included is a huge cafeteria and a reception center. --Tho ice arena, the speed skating rink, and several practice rinks. --Roads, a sewage system and water and healing systems, from which there would be little or no Income. Hanson said the state at first offered the entire holdings, except the ski lilts leased to Gushing, to u private concessionaire for "minimum rental." On this deal there were "no takers" except for a bid by Gushing to take over operation of the facilities for the state for a salary. Recently tho Beaches and Parks Division has been attempting to Imd concessionaires to take over the feeding, housing and operation of the ite rink, with the state to keep the parking lot and maintenance requirements, including the reirugcralion of the ice arena, Hanson said this was expected to cost the state $400,000 a year in maintenance costs, Gushing Multcs Oftor On this deal, Gushing again was the only bidder. He offered to take over the facilities, promising the state from 4 per cent of the gross on food to 15-22 per cent on housing, 25 per cent on the ice arena and 150 per cent on store rentals. This was expected to give the stale $175,000 a year, according to rough estimates. Hanson said that this, along with ski lift and parking income, would give the state $320,000 n year against $400,000 in expenses on maintenance. Another alternative to the slate was to buy out part of Cushing's and landowner Wayne Poulsen's holdings ut a cost of five million dollars to make tho entire valley a slate park. Geddes'wat one of the stnunehest foes on this. "The only thing we can do now is to try to operate it the best we can alter the Olympics and wait for direction by the Legislature, " Hanson said Geddcs remarked: "To think that this whole Squaw Valley business started up more or loss as n gag, with Mr. Gushing making tho pitcli for the Olympics just lo gcf publicicty for an investment, of his own in the area " Court Considers Fate Of US Man HAVANA (UPI) -The fate of a New York-Miami manufacturer accused of plotting to smuggle refugees out of Cuba rested today in the hands of a revolutionary tribunal considering government demands that he be sent to prison for 20 years.
