Eisenhower previously fiad expressed hope for peaceful coexistence. The President shortly afterwards explained that while he hoped the West and communism could exist side by side he was not blind to communism's long- range goal of world domination. Last night Dulle.3 said he hoped .he West and communism could »et along too, but lhat this didn't mean he as asleep at the switch either. So & good deal of Dulles' talk, which had been described by the State Department as a major, foreign policy speech, was taken up with answering Eisenhower's captain in the Senate. Except for the emphasis on America's peaceful intentions, plus the answers to Knowland, there was little in Dulles' srecc-h on American foreign policy not already known.

N« MM Clrtk 4 MM. tMttft 14*. PRICE Se 'Journal. Ray about the wax "lost." The process belongs to what Is known in the trade as the investment system of casting. "Irivest- nicnt" has to be explained also. Briefly, the "lost wax" casting | system is an art of the ancients flthat we have had to revive in this jimodern day in order to reduce the | ycost of machining precision mechanical parts — and in certain instances to do a job with metal that is too hard to be machined at all. For instance, the jet-engine program for aircraft depends entirely ^pn "lost 'wax" castings. The metal of the turbine blades, Which havR to endure incredible heat in the propulsion jet stream, is too hard to be finished by ordinary machine methods. The blades therefore are cast by a System so precise that no mechanical finishing is required. Here's. the "lost wax" process:Hot wax or plastic is poured into a die representing the shape, of the wanted part. After it is coWed the wax (or plastic) is 'buried in ceramic.' Or "invested", in ceramic, as the trade calls it. The ceramic shapes itself to the exact pattern, and then the wax is melted out, leaving a cavity. Hot metal is poured in, cooled, and then the ceramic shell is broken away — leaving a finished machine part. The wax, as you noted, was melted out and "lost." Ray Vicker tells the fascinating itfjft-iry of "lost wax," It was one of man's earliest ...technical accomplishments. The' ancient Egyptians and Greeks,. .Used it. The Romans produced fine jewelry, and Benvenuto Cellini made some oi his greatest metal statues with "lost wax." It's odd how human affairs follow a cycle. Here is the case of mankind's oldest casting system, which languished and was forgotten in the Dark Ages — only to be rt^T'ved by the requirements of China Warned U.S. to Protect Isle of Formosa WASHINGTON (*) Red China had blunt warning today that the United States would probably attack the Chinese mainland if the Reds attempted to nier For- hiosa. Secretary of State Dulles made this statement yesterday in announcing that a mutual security pact will be signed with the Chinese Nationalist on Formosa In the next few days. He raid the treaty means U.S. retaliation agpinst any- Red invasion of Formosa. Although .saying a counterattack on the mainland was probably in such an event, he declined to discuss in detail the scope of any retaliation. In another statement at his present conference yesterday, add- 'ing up to a "tough" policy on Communist China. Dulles said that the United States may yet consider a naval blockade for the China coast American rights are not respect- d that is, if the 13 Americans ecently sentenced as spies are ot released. The new pact, if ratified by the enate as expectad, will assure merican protection for many ears to Formosa and the Pesca- ores Islands, thus forging the last nk in a chain of military alii- nces designed to block Red Chi- eye expansion in. the Pacific.
