France, Aug. 9. ffl'i—British Conservative Robert Boothby called today for Germany's participation In Western defense on equal terms with other-nations. la the first major statement in* the European Consultative Asscin- ' nly from a member of his party, Boothby asserted that Western Europe's defenses are "for all practi- cr Jk^rposcs still non-existent," and urjfcl immediate action to mee( the threat of totalitarian Communism. Reliable sources hero previously had predicted that Conservative Party Leader Winston Churchill, *'hen he speaks to the Assembly tomorrow, would propose? the Germans be armed to help in Western Europe's defense. Churtrhill's followers said he would make :? speech of world Importance tomorrow. "Either Germany Is in our Western European Union on equal terms. or she remains out and occupied," said Boothby. "We have to make EDSON (Continued from page 6) already approved.

Boothby said that Germany, too, has a choice to make, and he adderi: "Mv most fervent hopn is that she will choose to come with us JUL this event, he said, "she will be^entitled to ^polnt out that she is closest to the potential aggressor, and to ask for assurances that we are all in it together from the start, if there should be a start. "We shall be equally entitled to rcoly that, with modern weapons. 100 miles one way or the other makes little difference, that it L= better to fight for freedom than to submit to slavery, and that, if she Is attacked, we will tight by her side." nefense "Vital Topic" Boothby termed defense the "most vital topic of all." anri asserted, "whether we like it, or not we are inextricably Involved in the desperate struggle for world power that has ever taken place li: human history. We are all in the same boat, and that boat Is at this moment in great peril." He referred bitterly to the Brussels Treaty and Atlantic Pact, say- Ing, "the only visible result of fhr>se j pacts to date Is a number of committees and in a straight fight be- twcen tanks and committees, tanks are apt to win." Sources close to Churchill con- fxjfced he will speak on Western European defense, but- they would give no details. They said Britain's wartime lender ss'll write the final draft of his speech tonight. Other reliable sources, however, aaid he would propose the formation of German divisions, within the Allied occupation forces in Germany.

In the meantime It has been found that building casts and rndar equipment have both advanced in price. So that instead of costing about 531,000,000 to finish the job, it may cost close to $40,000,000. By monkeying around in this manner and economizing.
