Dulles told newsmen Friday's JIATO meeting is of "special significance, for one of its purposes v to take notice of the fact that five years ago this month the Worth Atlantic Treaty was signed. That wa» an historic event. Impressive Prof rest "In the past five years," Dulles •aid, "we have made impressive progress in translating the symbolic act of banding together in the j midst of a common danger into j the reality of an effective common j defense. , Of equal importance is j the habit" of continuance—I could j truthfully say — daily consultation j in the Council of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization." Dulles said Friday's meeting would be a continuation of that process of consultation. In such fashion, he added, the 14 member countries would be able to perfect their understanding of each other's problems. "On. this .understanding," he aeid, "on a common purpose, the future of all of us depends." Dulles made no mention of the talks he planned to have in Paris on the Geneva conference. An informed American source here said earlier the United States would stand by its decision to oppose an expected Russian move to turn the Gfeneva meeting into a "Big Five" conference with Bed China—even if such opposition broke tip the conference. No Becoffnftion Before leaving Washington last Bight, Dulles implied this would be his stand. He reiterated American participation at the Geneva parley "does not imply --our diplomatic recognition of Red China." The United States insists the Pel- ping regime is an invited participant, not a big-power instigator of Hxe meeting starting April 26. The American secretary said he was going to the Geneva conference to seek an "honorable peace to Indochina and a free, united Korea." A meeting of the Big Three Western foreign ministers has been arranged for tomorrow evening, shortly after the arrival of British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden. They will meet privately for a brief discussion and then will bring in their experts for more detailed talks. French sources said the discussions would cover not only the Korean and Indochinese questions but also would deal with the proposed Western reply to Russia's note of March 31 in which Russia offered to participate in NATO.

It includes 100,300,000,000 rubles— 17.8 per cent—for national defense. (The Soviets set an arbitrary exchange rate of four rubles to the dollar. That would make the allotment for the armed forces $25,075.000,000. The record budget estimated total revenue during the year at 571.800.000,000 rubles ($142,950,000,000) and expenditures at 562.700,an anticipated surplus of 9,10,000,000 rubles. Western observers in Moscow pointed out that it was difficult to ' understand the Soviet Union's defense appropriations. For one thing, the state owns and runs the entire economy, fixing its own prices on any equipment needed for the armed forces. (Western observers also have long been convinced that much Soviet military spending is concealed under other budget categories.) Finance Minister Arseny G. Zverev presented the budget bill to the newly elected Supreme Soviet (parliament) at a session attended by Premier Georgi Malen- kov and other top leaders. The new Soviet opened its first session last night.
