NATOeiitia lags behind U...R.
LONDON (AP) - The British gov-
ernment said yesterday the Soviet mili-
tary buildup is outstripping that of the
NATO allies in the air, at sea and on
The Labor government report said
the Russians are spending between 11
per cent and 13 per cent of their re-
sources on the buildup.
"SOVIET FORCES have in many
areas been strengthened in size and
quality on a scale which goes well
beyond the need of any purely defensive
posture," it said.
Moscow's military capability goes
well beyond Europe into Africa, and the
Soviet government is able to deploy
military resources rapidly "in support
of its political interests in the Third
World," the report said.
It gave these examples of increases
in Soviet naval power in the eastern
Atlantic and in land power in central
Europe in the past 10 years:
" The number of nuclear-powered
submarines increased from 44 to 104, or
136 per cent.
" Missile-armed cruisers and
destroyers increased from six to 23, or
283 per cent.
" Fixed-wing maritime aircraft in-
creased from 170 to 220, or 29 per cent.
" Battle tanks increased from 7,250 to
9,500,.or 31 per cent.
" Artillery increased from 3,200 to
4,400, or 38 per cent.
9 Fixed-wing tactical aircraft in-
creased from 1,655 to 1,975, or 20 per
The British also outlined what they
said is today's balance of forces bet-
ween the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact bloc
and the NATO countries in the eastern
Atlantic and in central Europe:
" In surface ships, the communists
have 1.2 vessels for every single NATO
" In submarines the ratio is 1.4 com-
munist vessels to every NATO sub.
* There are 1.2 communist troops to
every NATO soldier.
" The communists have 2.7 main bat-
tle tanks against each NATO tank.
* In sea-based, fixed-wing tactical
aircraft, there is parity between the two
sides. But there are 2.4 land-based,
fixed-wing tactical planes on the com-
munist side to every one Western
U.S. DEFENSE officials and other
NATO leaders have similarly warned of
what they describe as an alarming

QUINCY, Mass. (AP) - An elderly
recluse who had kept police at bay for
12 days with a shotgun was taken into
custody yesterday afternoon.
Quincy Police Lt. James Fay said
Mary Connor, 71, was grabbed by
patrolmen when she opened the door of
NO SHOTS were fired, according to
Fay, who said that the loaded gun was
found near Connor.
The woman, who had been charged
with assault after threatening two boys
with the shotgun, was taken to Quincy
City Hospital, police said.
Quincy police were first called to the
home Feb. 8 when the family next door
complained Mrs. Connor threatened to
shoot their two sons over a dispute over
fees for snow shoveling. Officers had
staked out the house every day since.
CONNOR, A retired telephone
worker who has rarely been seen by her
neighbors in the last decade, said she
would "rig up the gun to kill myself if
anyone tries to come in."
She said she had a rifle with a
telescopic sight and a shotgun. Police
have not seen any weapons, but say
Connor's late husband, Eugene, owned
weapons and taught her to shoot.
Officers say they had put off a direct
confrontation with the woman, hoping
that she would give up. A warrant was
obtained for her arrest after the alleged
