Download PDF for this date

The chiefs of staff of the armies of seven Arab states today opened a meeting in Cairo under Arab League auspices to consider putting into effect an Arab collective security pact.

It is believed that the Arabs will request American munitions to support the contemplated defense organization. The organization would be a substitute for Western proposals for a Middle Eastern Defense Command.
