HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (APi — The United States was expected today j lo begin immediate consultation i jwith the Allied powers on Prcsi- j j dent Kencdy's decision for rcin- ' forcing Allied military power (o | meet the Soviet threat over Beri lin. Kennedy met with liis polili- j fcal and nr'jliant/ advi'crs in a session of Ihe Nalional Security : Council at the White House late | Wednesday. I Press secretary Pierre Salinger i said after the meeting "there i were decisions made." He said ! that the administration now enters into "the phase of consultation with our allies." Kennedy's specific decisions were not disclosed, but it. is believed that he made a basic policy determination to increase the size of U.S. armed forces to meet the Berlin crisis, lie made clear at liis news conference Wednesday he considers the threat to be worldwide. Present U.S. regular Army and Marine Corps ground strength totals about 1,032,000, of which fiSfi.OOO is Army. In the reservoir of ground forces are about 31)9,000 National Guard trops. 300,000 trained Army reserves and 20!!,000 in the ready reserve of the Marine Corps. Administration officials had been saying privately for several Weeks that the developing threats against Berlin by Soviet Premier 'Khrushchev provide the focal point of danger at present but. that the peril to U.S. interest in such distant places as Southeast Asia, which Kennedy himself had mentioned at the news co ference, must be taken into count. and javelin thrower John Fromtn.
