In his speech, McNamara said that by building up both non-nuclear and nuclear forjL'es in Europe “we are broadening the r a n g e of weapons at our disposal in a contest initiated at a low level of violence.” He continued: “Our coordinated planning assures that the appropriate response, nuclear or non-nuclear, whatever best supports our objective, will be made promptly and in concert. “The United States prefers not to resolve disputes by violence. But forcible interference with our rights and obligations would necessarily lead to conflict. And in such conflict we would not be defeated.” Here McNamara seemed to be referring to such situations as Berlin, where the United States claims the right to defend West Berlin and maintain access to the city.

Another Moscow Charge Albania Filched Subs Chicago News World Service Rome — The stealing of submarines—new crime in Moscow’s accusations against Albania—will be aired in next week’s meeting of Warsaw Pact countries in Warsaw, according to Balkan reports. Albania will probably be expelled from the Warsaw Pact. In June Russia withdrew 8 of 10 submarines at Saseno Island Naval Base and also their mother ship. This move was concealed from both Soviet and Albanian publics. The Soviets left two submarines and thousands of gallons of diesel oil. Both submarines and oil were confiscated in October by Albanians. But Albanians have nobody competent to teach them submarine operation.
