Belgium. April 15. —Western European leaders will meet here tomorrow and Monday to make their defense plans fit their pocketbooks. The conferees will be the for eign, finance and defense min isters. or their deputies, of the five Brussels treaty powers—Brit ain, Prance, Belgium, the Neth erlands and Luxembourg. The prime problem before the conference, informed sources said, is to bridge the gap between the defense ministers, who need funds to pay for a co-ordinated defense orogram. and the finance minis ters, which want to save as much as possible. Foreign Ministers Umpires. The foreign ministers, who col lectively are the Brussels pact consultative council, will act as umpires in working out a solution. Their deliberations took on added significance with the speech yesterday in Chicago by the United States Chief of Staff. Gen. Omar Bradley, who said the At lantic pact plan will be difficult to finance. Gen. Bradley is chair man of the pact's standing group, or main administrative body. The recent Atlantic pact defense ministers’ meeting in The Hague adopted an' overall defense plan for the 12 member nations. The five Brussels pact nations form one of the regional groupings un der the pact. Belgian and Luxembourg sources report their governments expect other pact members— notably Britain—to press for a proportional system of financing the five-nation area’s joint de fenses. Common Purpose Cited. Proponents of the proportional system maintain that, since the expenses are being undertaken for a common purpose, they should be split according to each nation’s resources and ability to pay. As of now, each partner bears its own defense expenses. Figures have been prepared to show that while Britain spends £1.000 ($2,800) to maintain one soldier for a year, Belgium spends only about £600 or £700 for the same purpose. Belgian officials reply that most of this difference is the result of different methods of preparing the national budgets. The only thing which counts, these circles say, is the number of well-trained and fully-equipped men and other defense factors which a nation can put into the line.

Court Awards Widow $12,000 Seized in 1948 Gamblina Raid •y the Associated Press ANNAPOLIS, April 15.—A little old lady who lived upstairs in a gambling establishment today won her claim to $12,000 in cash 'seized by police in a raid. ; The Maryland Court of Appeals ! ruled that Anastacia Maddock, 86-year-old widow, is entitled to the money seized in a raid nearly Itwo years ago at Rocwav Towers I on the Baltimore-Washington boulevard near Laurel. Mrs. Maddock said the money was her life savings. A packet of soiled $100 bills wrapped in a green oilcloth was kept in a cup board at the head of the back stairs to her apartment. In a 5-0 decision, the State’s highest court today reversed a decision by Circuit Judge James Clark of Howard County, who turned the money over to the State police pension fund. “We think that it was sufficient" for Mrs. Haddock to "prove she was rightfully (at least without apparent wrong* in possession of the money." Judge Charles Mar kell wrote for the court. Mrs. Haddock lived eight years in an upstairs apartment at Roc way Towers and said she had no idea there was gambling down stairs. Police seized $32,000 in a raid the night of June 5, 1948. Nineteen men arrested served jail terms on gambling charge^ One. Walter Novak, recovered $20,000 in a lawsuit. Mrs. Had dock said the remaining $12,000 was hers. The State contended the money represented gamblers' funds which: may have been hoisted upstairs on a dumb waiter inside the closet near Mrs. Maddock's apartment.!
