IECOKD SECTION PACK KINK Thursday, N'ovember 29, 195X iddle East Defense Problem ill Needs Practical Solution JJv PETER EDSON IfEA Washington Correspondent I PARIS, Nov. 29 (NEA^--The buestion of command for Middle East defense against Soviet aggres- fion is still regarded as "a can of rorms" at General Eisenhowers .jHAPE headquarters here. It was thought a solution might be possible till the Egyptian situation flared up. Now an early solution Is considered unlikely, even by the foith Atlantic Treaty Organization neeting in Rome Middle East defense problem is Considered so big it can't all be Solved at once. Bites will have to be taken on it one at a time. Iran is an exposed and weak flank There are no forces worthy of the name between Iran and Israel ^.IJIC fc/l_t»^-~" -.-· etting the Arab countries to col- aborate with Israel on a defense ·scheme is out of the question now. While Turkey -and Greece want be counted m Eisenhower's com-hand. there is much feeling here ·that the whole Middle East is too Ear away from SHAPE headquarters for control. Communications are too difficult, for one thing ·Yugoslav gap between Greece and ·southern Germany is another underlain quality. Eventually, a sep- larate Middle East command, paral- llel to Eisenhower's European com- Imand is considered necessary. Simplest explanation of Genral Eisenhower's NATO defense -jlan is to consider Western Europe las a peninsula which must be pro- Itected from invasion European I army under Eisenhower makes up Imam land defensive force. | Left flank is protected by the I Allied forces in northern Europe, J under Admiral Brmd, with head- I quarters at Oslo. The right flank lis protected by Allied forces in (Southern Europe, under Admiral (Carney, with headquarters in Na- I pies. Russians Leave Skeletons Belgrade, Yugoslavia--Biggest I eyesore on the landscape near this capital is the vast number of uncompleted buildings. They are part of the 105 industrial projects which I were started under Russian direc- l-tion at the end of the war as a I five-year plan. By 1948, when Tito broke with Moscow, Yugoslavs had made great , sacrifices to contribute their 73 per cent of the cost. Then construe- ' stopped suddenly for two i reasons Peasants and work- ' ers could no longer bear sacrifice Bussia failed to come through with i promised machinery deliveries from Hungarian, Czech and Polish reparations. Yugoslavia paid heavily in corn, timber and minerals, but got only a few pieces of machinery from eastern Germany. Crash came when Tito saw that Russia wanted to exploit Yugoslavia, not develop it. There's a story here about the man fiom Montenegro who saw the fust shipment of American supplies come into Yugoslavia, as part of the famine relief last year. Montenegrins are famous for thfeir fighting ability, but they hate to work. So, commented this Montenegrin: "What gratitude the Americans have, to send us such fine white flour, such waim undeiwear and such strong shoes. It shows they appreciate what good fighters we aie. And what wisdom the Americans showed by sending plows, saws and axes to the Serbs, the Croats, the Slovenes, the Bosnians and the Macedonians With those fine tools they will all be able to work better." Cold Would Hurt Rearmament London--A bad cold wave again this winter would seriously cripple Western Europe's rearmament «vxui short 50-bltiion tons of eoaL Britain alone needs 20-biluon tons and rtas only two week's reserve above ground. British railroaders won't work uoder bad snow and ice conditions and there is no equipment for handling it. So coal distribution stops in bad weather. There is further handicap In electric power shortage, since most of Britain's power is generated by coal steam British power shortage is estimated at a million kilowatts a year. In many new housing projects in Britain, "electric fues." or heaters were installed to save coal. Obsolescence is one of the most difficult factors to cope with in planning Western European defenses. Howitzers are cited here as a prime example Canadian artillery recently abandoned the British 25-pounder and shifted to American 105 and 155-mm howitzers. That leaves a number of surplus 25 pounders which might be used to arm our new European units. But the Dutch, the Belgians and others will take only limited quantities of the Canadian guns. They want the American models. Trying to get clearance for European manufacture of these guns required licensing on some 1.200 patents which cover the manufacture of these field pieces.
