NATO to Hold Summit Meeting Despite Sickness of Eisenhower; Spanish Forces Attack Morocco

By The ASSOCIATED Press

A communique from NATO's permanent council said, "We learn with regret that President Eisenhower will be prevented from attending the NATO meeting on December 16-18."

The White House, however, said Eisenhower's recovery from a slight stroke had been so rapid that he may yet go to Paris.

Members of the Council did not mask their concern that Eisenhower, one of the principal builders of NATO's military strength, might not be present. But they were determined to go ahead with the plans for the greatest show of western solidarity since NATO was born.
