(International Sotmdphoto) J The smaller countries of Western Europe are demanding a radical revision of North Atlantic Treaty Organization policies. They feel that the United States and Great Britain are concentrating too much on the possibilities of nuclear warfare. They .want the larger allies to remember that in the event of war with Soviet Russia, the smaller countries would be overrun by Red army ground forces unless Allied ground forces can stop them. The stand of the smaller allies has been expressed forcefully in a report made to a meeting, now "The Soviet threat can not be met simply by atom bombs. "The Soviet military threat is still primarily by means of ground still primarily by means of ground forces supplied by air forces. This is a nightmare for those peoples who are not separated from the Red armies by an ocean or at least by the channel" — Britain's English Channel.

Wayne, and when he got there he was advised not to venture to Delphi. 40 miles, and it looked like rain, and it was getting colder. But .still undaunted, still unhorsed, Mr. Vandeventer trudged off towards Delphi. Over hill, over dale, on the old Indian trail; he rolled on, winding his course by the Wabash River, ft grew colder, the rains came, then the snow. Darkness soon obliterated the trail he trod. And soon he knew, that he was lost. Soggy with snow, each sinew chilled, he couldn't even build a fire. History reports he was up all night, running up ami down hill to keep warm. He couldn't chance sleep for fear of freezing. It is not reasonable to assume be ran unceasingly for 12 hours. Any slide rule will tell there are 720 minutes or 43,200 seconds, in that time. Surely he mixed in other movement. And here lies the enigma. What all did Mr. Vandeventer do that night to ditch death, in that desolate forest, in that 12-inch snow? If. he were inclined to trip the light fantastic he could have done so, between dartings up and down hill. Snow would hinder two-stepping or waiting or polka-ing-the big apple and mambo were not yet in practice—but at least such would afford variety. Maybe Mr. Vandeventer decided to calisthenic a little. H seems unlikely that he would have done the more strenuous exercises as tumbling or somersaulting. Tliere was no one to play leap frog with. Since he was in a glob of snow, deep knee bends, and bicycle pumping and finger flips seemed more feasible. He was in a forest and forests have trees. It is possible he scampered up and down trees, or even chinned on a sapling. Mr. Vandeventer could have' pendence. Carlos Garcia Expands Lead For Re-Election Vice Presidency Goes To Liberal Party Opponent MANILA OU'P)-A flood of pro- government votes from the outlying provinces gave President Carlos P. Garcia an apparently unbeatable lead today in his bid for re-election. But Garcia, the Nationalista Party candidate, failed 'to carry his running mate. The vice presidency went to th'e opposition Liberal Party .candidate, Diosdado Macapagal, The ballot counting, complicated by destruction from typhoon Kit, was incomplete but most political observers regarded the preliminary returns as conclusive. Garcia Leads In Count The latest 'Count gave Garcia 382,975 votes to 270,295 for sugar baron Jose Yulo, the Liberal Party candidate; 145,000 for progressive Manuel Manahan, and 72,000 for Sen. Claro Recto, the only candidate who did ra>t campaign on a pro-American platform. . In the vice presidential race, Macapagal had 514,016 votes to 286,744 for Nationalista Jose Laurel Jr., son of the man who was puppet president of the Philippines during the Japanese occupation in World War II. In contests for eight vacant senatorial seats, the Nationalists were leading for five, the Liberals for two and the Progressives for one. 19 Die In Typhoon • The typhoon, which swept through heavily 'populated Central Luzon during the balloting Tuesday, left 19 persons dead. Nine more were killed in violence connected with the election for a total of 28.
