He said there Is a "generallag" in furnishing modern equip-ment.Grove DisadvantageThe net result, he said, would beto put Allied troops at a grave dis-advantage in the eve'nt of hostili-ties.He called on NATO legislators tosee that their governments buildup to the force goals which havebeen agreed upon for some years.However, Norstad was not com-pletely discouraged. He said:'•The progress which has beenmade toward the attainment ofthese goals permits me to makethe judgment that, within thelimits and for the purposes of ourdirective from the political authori-ties, NATO Europe can be de-fended."But I must add—and hasten toadd—that until the goals are fully-met we are subjecting ourselves tounnecessary risks in the processof this defense."What remains to be done isrelatively small compared to whatalready has been accomplished.
