WASHINGTON (P)-The mili-
tary buildup was expanded yes-
terday to include preparations for
immediate formation of three
more Army combat divisions and
the opening of a 16,000-man train-
ing center.
The Army announcement fol-
lowed by one week the Air Force's
notification to 71 National Guard
and air reserve units that they
may be called into federal serv-
Meanwhile the Navy was com-
pleting plans which may result in
adding about 80 ships of all typesE
to the operating fleet.
Divisions Reorganized
The Army's announcement said
that three divisions-the 1st and
2nd infantry and 2nd armored-
will be reorganized into regular
combat divisions. Their present
mission is training and they are
at less than half the strength re-
quired for combat readiness.
The addition of these three out-
fits would bring the Army's total
combat divisions to 17. This is in
addition to three existing Marine
divisions, with the possibility that
another Marine division may be
called later.
To begin the basic training of
the men needed to fill out the
three new combat units, the Army

Set Record
BERLIN (o)-Refugees flowed
into West Berlin from East Ger-
many yesterday at the highest
rate in eight years despite new
Communist police measures to seal
off the escape hatch to freedom.
What effect Soviet Premier Ni-
kita Khrushchev's speech on Ber-
lin had on the refugees was not
clear. But it was obvious that
Khrushchev's firm insistence on
gaining Communist control of the
Western access routes to Berlin
did little to encourage them to re-
main in East Germany.
During the 24 hours that ended1
at 8 a.m. yesterday, 2,021 refu-
gees had registered in West Ber-
lin. Many started their flight be-
fore Khrushchev spoke, but the
number was the highest since
May 28, 1953, when 3,973 were

Civil Rights
Score Victory
MADISON, Wis. JP)--The civil

Wisconsin statehouse scored its
first success last night as the state
Senate withdrew two anti-discrim-
ination measures from a commit-
tee after bitter argument.
One of the measures' would
merge Wisconsin's fair employ-

governor's commission on human
rights in a move to increase en-
forcement power.
The other is aimed at prohibit-
ing discrimination in housing and

son), who launched the move with
a two-hour speech, called the

Talks May

Evade Comment
On Last Speech
By Khrushchev
PARIS (P)P - Members of the
North Atlantic Treaty Organiza-
tion yesterday endorsed the policy
of the big Western powers of
standing firm on Berlin and keep-
ing the door open to negotiation
with Moscow only "on a reason-
able basis."
Speaking on behalf of the ma-
jor powers, United States Secre-
tary of State Dean Rusk reported
to a closed session of the NATO
council on his weekend conference
with his British, French and West
German colleagues.
Rusk and other allied officials
evaded all comment on Soviet
Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev's
speech Monday night calling for
negotiations but insisting on
Communist demands.
One Exception
There was one possible excep-
tion to this no comment policy.
Lord Home, the British foreign
secretary, said negotiation for its
own sake would be useless. He did
not mention Khrushchev's speech
but may have had it in mind.
Rusk's report included recom-
mendations that Allied forces on
the continent be brought up to
full strength with the, addition of
perhaps 75,000 to. 80,000 men in
the near future, and a possible
buildup to 30 divisions later on.
This is a longtime NATO goal.
An official who attended the
session said the Council heard
Rusk's statement with sympathy.
Several members raised questions
which the secretary attempted to
answer. But Council delegates, by
the nature of their positon as
ambassadors, were unable to make
any immediate commitment on
new expenditures for addiitonal
Promise Report
The same source said Council
members promised to report back
to their governments. Early re-
plies are expected.
The Council agreed to hold
further consultations on the sub-
ject and then reaffirmed the poli-
cy adopted by the NATO foreign
ministers earlier this year in Os-
lo. This called for a "peaceful and
just" solution of the Berlin and
German problems on the basis of
The Oslo decision also said any
Soviet move, such as a separate
peace treaty with the East Ger-
man regime, could in no way de-
prive the Western powers of their
rights in Berlin nor relieve the
Russians of their obligations.
Lord Home told newsmen there
would be no point in undertaking
talks with the Soviet Union un-
less proper spadework offered
some hope of success.
