__ THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16', 1950 The Nation Today: Th« North Atlantic Treaty- Fear of Russia Has Pushed West Closer Toward Military Unity _BLYTHEVn.I.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS' By JA.MKS MAKl.OYV WASHINGON, Nov. 16. (AP) — Fear ol Russia lias pushed the West, closer toward military unity than anything in peacetime history. During the war Russia and the West were a big family fighting Hit- In 1942 Britain signed" a 20- year military alliance with Russia against any aggression by Germany or her allies. ; In 1344 France signed a 20-year military alliance with the Soviets, loo. But this warm lamily feeling suffered a chill after the war. The West began to tear the size ol Russia's armies, still intact, and her intentions. This fear was large-size by 1941. The following dates and facts will show the lear, as it grew, has drawn Western Europe, and even the United States, toward military unity. Britain, France Sign Treaty On March 4. 1947 Britain and France signed a 50-year military alliance between themselves, the so- called Treaty o( Dunkerrjue. One year later—on March 17. 19!8 — Britain, France, Belgium. Netherlands and Luxembourg signed a 50-year military alliance. This treaty, signed in Brussels, has been called the Brussels Pact and Western Union. The United States had encouraged this five-nation military alliance. Already it had set up the Marshall plan. And on June 11. 1948 the U.S. Senate approved a resolution offered by Senator Vancienberg. Michigan Republican. ~iis resolution suggested the U.S. such an- arrangement for de--J. And In the following month, July, 1948, this country began talks with the. live Brussels treaty nations. This led to the North Atlantic Alliance which was signed on April 4, 1949 by these 12 nations: U.S., Canada. Britain. Prance, Belgium, Netherlands. Luxembourg, Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Portugal, Italy. So the two-country military alliance which began between Britain and France in March 1941, then spread to a, five-country alliance by March, 1948. had become a 12-na- llon alliance by April, 1949. The signers of the North Atlantic Pact promised to go to one another's help if any of them is attacked. But such -an agreement, unless the 12 nations could arm themselves to resist attack, would have little practical-meaning. Arms Aid Money Voted Congress voted, money tor arms into billions but, In voting the money, Congress insisted that the Atlantic Pact countries must work out a unified plan for defense. The Pact signers started work on that. The Korean fighting began in June, igso. it showed what ixwr shape the U.S. was in for any sudden war with Russia. That started the big defense program. In mid-September, 1950 the foreign ministers of the 12 pact-signers—including Secretary o/ State Aclicson—met in New York. Acheron suggested the Atlantic i act countries immediately begin building their defenses. And he said use of German manpower — from Americans and Germans — the Americans- might supply as many as eight or 10 divisions— under a single commander. 1 This, in short, suggested creation of an International army In Europe. Although France balked at the idea or arming or training Germans. the 12 foreign ministers approved the idea of a unified, or international, army. Almost immediately the defense ministers of the 12 Atlantic Pact, countries were sent to Washington to make the plans for this unified force, which might be as large as 80 divisions, !,« n.^?™ a " R ? llubl ! e ' w " lch Thta problem hasn't yet has the Allies' blessing—is' essential. Which means: Creating some German military units and incorporating them in the Western European defense lorce.
