'Bradley,' in his brief prepared text, emphasized that "now is the time for action." -He noted that this was the third session of the military committee In Paris last December, he said "we forged the strategic concept." At the Hague in April "we vitalized an over-all strategic plan and adopted the principle or balanced /orces." While Bradley made no further mention of this point, the subject of "balanced forces" may produce differing views when the military and defense ministers sessions begin trying to translate ii into divisions navies and air forces. After referring to the plans for strategy and balanced forces laid at the two previous meetings, the general asked: "Can friendly men become sufficiently united in the cause of peace to built] integrated armed -forces for the common security of '.p+l nations?" "Now i.s the time for action, for we must eitlior create those forces now—in lime of opportunity, and a moment of peace—or we may be forvcd ,(o improvise them in" the face of enemy attack." What the military committee will j oo is to prepare recommendations for the defense ministers. Some of trie debated points will arise only before the defense ministers ami m turn, some of those may have to be referred to the top-level North Atlantic Council. A potentially knotty problem for the defense committee is the maUcr of utilizing German manpower in the integrated defenses of Western Europe. Qucfcec Gets 5-Inch Snow QUEBEC. Oct. 24.
