    THERE IS MYSTERY REGARDING A NATO BASE IN PORTUGAL. PRESS REPORTS HAVE BEEN DENIED OF A NEW NATO AIR BASE AT BEJA FOR THE USE OF THE WEST GERMAN AIR FORCE. INFORMED SOURCES SAID THE BASE WAS UNDER CONSTRUCTION BUT WOULD NOT BE OPERATIONAL FOR ABOUT A YEAR. EVENTUALLY, PORTUGUESE AND GERMAN TECHNICIANS WILL STAFF THE BASE WHICH WILL HAVE A PERMANENT GARRISON OF 500 MEN.

    IN A NEW YEAR MESSAGE TO HIS PEOPLE, PRESIDENT ADMIRAL AMERICO RODRIGUES TOMAS SAID THE NATO ALLIANCE WAS STEADILY LOSING ITS IMPORTANCE BECAUSE IT LACKED COURAGE TO ACT IN TIME AND ADEQUATELY.
