PAC« TWELVI Atlantic Powers Seek Finish Of European Defense Plan _BIA'THKVtLLK (AKK.) COURIER NKWI V WASHINGTON, Oct. 30. ,.., ,. Atlantic powers' defense committee Kt out »o finish framing today the ftructuM of a combined defense force bo protect Western Europe against any aggression from Russia. But Interposed was an ojd obsta- cte over which the Atlantic nations had stumbled before—should German forces be organized to participate in the common defense? If so under what conditions? The opening of today's session h«4d forth hope* that the defense minliten ot the 12 pact countries could Iron out details and disagreements by tonight. H was a hope, not a certainty. In the liret closed-door meeting at the defense committee on Saturday, French Defense Minister Jules Moch presented hU government's ideas about the German question. Presumably they were as stated before: The rearming of Western Germany, the formation of German military force.?, should wait until some form of European defense council is formed. This civilian council would control a supra-national military force. If eventually there are any Gorman units In it they shouldn't be big, but should be smaller, than division size. "Menace Is Urgent" This isn't the idea of the United States and Britain. They contend the menace of Russia is so great and urgent that everything possible should be done swiftly—Including formation of German units to help the combined defense. They have offered guarantees on the size and control of the German units, but not 1 the kind Modi's government demands. Everyone talked about it for long hours on Saturday. Then, after all the ministers had it chance for phone consultations with their home government.'! during n Sunday recess, they were called back this morning to talk some more. "First H»H Completed" The German rearmament question didn't, consume all the time Saturday. A brief and only slightly Illuminating communique Saturday night said the committee "completed this first half of Its agenda." It didn't say what this contained. It developed that this first half ob- Tlously didn't include either the controversial German question nor the entirely non-controversal matter of setting up a supreme command for the integrated European lore*. Foe some reason, the final agreement to establish the command had been left aside while the conferees talked about the French position on German rearmament and on other matters. This was despite a previous general Informal accord on creating the command and the widespread understanding the commander probably would be the American General Dwight D. Eisenhower.
