Here 's Meaning Behind Free World's Plans Reasons Outlined for Attempts To Pool International Forces By FAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON — (JB — NATO, EDC, Schuman Plan. What do they mean? On March 17, 1948, five European countries — Britain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxem bourg — signed a pact, called the Brussels Treaty, to last 50 years. They promised to help one another in case of attack of any of them, But here and abroad it was felt something strong was needed to discourage the Russians from any warlike intentions. Three months later, June 11, 1948, the U. S. Senate approved a resolution which told the Presi dent to make alliances with other countries. The result was the creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. NATO now has 14 members: United States, Canada, Iceland. Norway, Denmark, Britain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Portugal, Italy. Greece, Turkey. The NATO agreement was signed April 4, 1949. • NATO members are pledged to help one another in case of attack of any of them. The five Brussels Treaty nations became part of NATO. • But, broad as NATO was, there Was a big gap in it. It did not Include Western Germany, a county whose military s till and manpower would be a powerful aid ►gainst any Russian march westward. • The French, .overrun by Germany three times in a century, and worried at the thought of a hew German ^army, proposed EDC {European Defense Community) a single army for France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy and West Germany. This army would wear one uniform. Through such a single army made up of men from all six coun tries, the Germans could contrib ute to European defense and still not have a national army of their The French proposal was made in September, 19S0. Progress was slow. Finally on May 27, 1952, the six EDC countries signed their agreement. But the single EDC army couldn't come into being til the six parliaments of all six countries approved. So far none has. Why? Balking in France and Germany too. The reason: Politics and ancient misgiving about one another. Britain, which was able to keep its armed forces independent when it joined the Brussels Treaty group and NATO, stayed out of EDC •here it would have to merge them with other nations Britain argues it can't put all its eggs the European basket, that it has world-wide obligations. Secretary of State Dulles, on his recent trip, prodded the six EDC countries to stop stalling. These six EDC countries which m't agree on merging their mili tary forces have been able to do some very important merging on the economic side. On May 9. 1950. French Foreign Minister Robert benuman posed that France, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg pool their coal and steel resources. The six signed the agreement April 18, 1951, and it was approved by their panaments m June, 1952. The plan creates a common mar ket for their coal and steel, knocks out tariffs between them on coal and steel, provides ,for a common tax. It began to work Tuesday n ing when 40 tons of coke moved across the German frontier into France, duty free. Auto Industry Warmly Greets Decontrols on Steel Output ■ WASHINGTON UPf— The market in steel, copper and aluminum was closer today to being free than it has been in more than two years. The decontrol-pledged Eisenhower administration weakened allocation controls Friday and promised to do away with them, except for a minimum to protect defense requirements, by June 30. • Price controls remain on the allocation-free metals, but all price controls are on the way out by not later than April 30. The new order was warmly greeted by spokesmen for the automobile industry— now relieved of a 1^2 million limit per quarter on passenger car manufacture— and others. But a big question was whether more steel could be found by manufacturers now free to go out and buy it. One informed prediction was that not too much difference would be noted immediately, but that the buyers would find more of the metal on the free market during the second quarter of this year. A scramble was expected among civilian users to get orders on the mills' books for future deliveries. Government spokesmen said Friday's order opened up the market in the three industrials metals this The issuance of Controlled Ma terials Plan "tickets" will cease. Formerly these authorizations had to be obtained from the government by users of the metals. Some got them as much as six months in advance. And production ceilings, like the one on automobiles, are out. The only limitation now will be that the government still will see that actual military and atomic energy production gets first call. It will continue to do that, under what spokesmen termed a simplified system, even after June 30.

(fl— The house-wives' rush to the .corner grocery for low-cost meats has tttpered off, but the price war is far from over. The price battle was stepped up today as Ohio market men con tinued to offer slashed prices on home-grown meat to challenge New Zealand competition. With the New Zealand beef selling at 39 cents a pound, meat markets were deluged with eager customers and at least one store lim ited the amount a customer could purchase. Then a Marion beef booster, Merle Wise, began his sale of cut- rate Ohio mcut Thursday at 39 to 59 cents a pound. Meat shops in other cities followed suit. A Cleveland store sold all steaks at 39 cents a pound— offered stew ing beef at nine cents a pound while hamburger went for cents. The quality of the foreign meat came under lire by the Cleveland Retail Meat Dealers association. It said the New Zealand meat was an inferior grade. But James Long, manager c Oberlin market, said customers in the college city of 5,066 liked Uie imported meat. Long's market finished selling its first purchase of 6,000 pounds of New Zealand beef yestciday, but Long said he has 2,000 i pounds for today.

Keep Posted on Politics Read Westbrook Pegler Pcge 4 — Every Night TV Academy awards, the Movie Academy nominations and the Photoplay award dinners. Also currently In season are the award events of The Screen Directors Guild, Screen Writers Guild, Redbook, Look, Pic and Click. Surely a reporter deserves stme kind of award for getting through all of them. The TV Academy's Emmy statuette may yet become a full sister to the austere Oscar. That will take a little time, but this year's TV Academy event was a professional show. Sole hitch came when Emcee Art Linkletter ran through three microphones before finding one that worked. The TV affair seemed to have even more excitement and electricity than the movie event. Maybe that's because it was held at a dinner, as the Oscar events were in pre-war days. By limiting attendance to a select audience, the sponsors' provided an atmosphere that was tense and responsive. It's possible that the Oscar presentations can be held in more intimate surroundings, now that the event is being televised. Voice of America Hearings Continue NEW YORK — lib — Sen.
