Latest Deadline in the State



NATO Leaders'
To Build Up Pact
Treaty Organization To Be Given
Wider Political, Economic Powers
PARIS (P)-North Atlantic Alliance leaders agreed tentatively
yesterday to strengthen the treaty organization with wider political
and economic powers.
But secretary of State John Foster Dulles served notice that the
United States reserves full freedom of action in defense of its vital
interests without consulting its NATO allies in advance.
A spokesman for the conference of NATO foreign ministers said
they endorsed the outlines of recommendations by Halvard Lange
of Norway, Gaetano Martino of Italy and Lester B. Pearson of Canada,
members of a committee who have been studying political and eco-
nomic possibilities for NATO.

Action Delayed
But, the spokesman said, action
on their recommendations was de-
layed by French Foreign Minister
Christian Pineau and West Ger-
many's Heinrich von Brentano,j
who said they wanted to submit
amendments. .
A high NATO source said Secre-
tary Dulles told the 14 other for-
eign ministers of NATO member
countries it would be unfair to the
50 other nations with which the
United States has mutual defense
pacts if Washington could not act
in other parts of the world with-
out consulting NATO.
Recommends Consultation
The report by Lange, Martino
and Pearson - called N A T O's
"Three Wise Men"-recommended
"before any new policy is adopted
which might affect NATO, or a
political pronouncement is made,
there should be consultations."
Secretary Dulles, the source said,
told the closed ministerial meeting
he approved of this principle and
hoped it would be adopted. But,
if taken literally, Secretary Dulles
continued, this and another sen-
tence stating "there cannot be
unity in defense and disunity in
foreign policy" both go too far.
Diplomats in the meeting were
quick to point out Secretary Dul-
les' statement appeared Lcely to
cause a protestin view of United
States resentment when Britain
and France took military action
against Egypt without prior con-
sultation with the United States
or any other NATO member.

See Failure
Of Uprising,
Two University professors last
night agreed the present Hun-

probably end in at least surface
"After all," Prof. Preston W.
Slosson of the history department
said, "the strikers eventually will
have to eat."
Prof. George Katona of the psy-
chology and economics depart-
ments noted quietly, "It's hard to
fight tanks."
Prof. Katona, a former Hun-
garian, went on to say the strikes
and scattered violence will prob-
ably have long-range effects.
"The guns and tanks can't be
there all the time," he said. "In
the long run, it's a wonderful
thing, what these brave, brave
Hungarians are doing."

happened to recently-installed

"probably" be lasting, Prof. Ka-
tona commented, "I think na-
tionalism is on the upswing all

Prof. Slosson, however, thinks
Hungarian nationalism will be
crushed, at least for the time
being. "Russia is right next door,"
he said, "and can throw an entire
army into Hungary. Of course,
her prestige is still shaky, but I
think she would take the neces-
sary steps," to completely crush
the revolt.
No matter what loss of prestige
Russia suffers, Prof. Slosson said,
she would be almost forced to
move because "success of a Hun-
garian independence movement

of course, but the spark was in
