Soviet Union Approves 'Red NATO' MOSCOW (£)— The Soviet Union has ratified the Warsaw agreement setting up a unified Eastern European military command. The anticipated action by the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet makes Russia the fourth Communist ally to approve the eight-nation "Red NATO." The Presidium endorsed the formal alliance Wednesday after hearing a long speech by Premier Nikolai Bulganin, on the eve of his departure for talks in Belgrade with. Yugoslav President Tito. Describing the agreement as a Communist answer to the rearmament of West Germany and its entry into the North' Atlantic Treaty Organization, Bulganin de- "The joining of West Germany to NATO increases the aggressive nature of this bloc directed against the Soviet Union and the countries of the peoples' democracies, which is being accompanied by the activization of aggressive forces elsewhere in the world." The treaty signed in the Polish capital May 14 joins the armed forces of Soviet Union, East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Albania under a single commander Russian Marshal Ivan Konev.

W— Scien- i tists at the University of Michigan i setting up a sort of maUiemati-; cal radar to locate the pesky sum- j mer plant that plagues seven mil-j lion Americans. They are using a complex equa- \ tion that looks like a fugitive from j a. nuclear laboratory. Their ob- i jective: ragweed and hay fever. As complex as it is (it requires , an electronic calculator to work it cut), it could provide part of the answer to sweeping city air of ragweed pollen. Professors E. Wendell Hewson ! of meteorology and John M. Sheldon of internal medicine say more people come down with hay fever every year. Seldon and Hewson are working l a project in the university's Engineering Research Institute to gather basic information on the circulation of pollens and other air contaminants. In a small laboratory on the roof : one of the engineering build ings, Hewson measures how wind direction and belocity and air tur bulence affect the scattering of ragweed pollen. He has worked out equations that can help locate where the weed is growing,^ so that it can be de stroyed. The equation, he says, ■ould also tell whether the rag-'eed field was a major or minor By measuring the pollen count a the air at many locations, and then entering this information in the equation, coupled with local meteorological data on winds. Hewson believes it is possible to pinpoint the offending growths of ragweed. By measuring points I Whltt «lk with nearft . . . red tlk or black pot-I tnt Italhtr.

A $75,000 irrigation system was installed in the Meramec Caverns here by Lester B. Dill, owner. From lack of rain, some of the picturesque limestone formations and statues were becoming dry. Moisture supplied by an electric pump is keeping them fresh and full of luster and color. It serves the three miles of cave open to the public. Dill says he thinks it's the first irrigation system for a cave. Just an Amateur SAGINAW, Mich. IB— University of Michigan regents held a special meeting here Wednesday to give SS-year-old Fred Dustin a citation. The citation recognized Dustin's research and writings on Michigan's Indians. University President Harlan Hatch retold Dustin he was "a scholar and a gentleman." "I'm just an amateur, I'm no great shakes," said Dustin, who never went to college, nor even to high school.

Public Health Service, would just once explain publicly the difficulties with the antipolio vaccine, some of the confusion mighf be removed. Scheele and the health service from time to time have issued statements, as confusion piled upon confusion, but no layman could understand what, if anything, was wrong with the vaccine or wny the program has ground to a vir- In the 44 days since the government first okayed use of the vaccine, this has happened: ■ 1. The government stopped use of the vaccine, then cleared some of it but not enough to keep the inoculation program going very long. 2. At least 92 vaccinated children lave come down with polio, them after receiving vaccine made by the Cutter Laboratories, of Berkeley, Calif. 3. Scheele has met repeatedly with groups of advisers — his own specialists, outside polio experts, representatives of the six licensed vaccine manufacturers — and so far as the public can see wardrobe before Memorial Day fun! the program is still up in the air. 4. Although the government in April withdrew all Cutter vaccine it has not yet said what if any connection there is between the Cutter vaccine and the polio which developed in 60 children who re ceived it. 5. A split occurred. Wednesday night between one manufacturer — and perhaps all six of them — and the health service after it laid down new testing standards. Some dates tell the story: April 12— The 'government licensed the distribution of the vac- Aprf! 27— After several children vaccinated with the Cutter product- came down with polio, the government withdraw all Cutter vaccine.
