WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6, 1949 BLYTIIEVILLE <ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE THE NATION TODAY Atlantic Pact Is Signed But Will Be Just Scrap of Paper Unless U.S. Senate Okays It Ry Jitnios Marlim WASHINGTON, April 6. </!')—Tlie diplomats' striped punts are back in their traveling bags, their speeches are finished, their signatures are just about dry on the Atlantic Pact, and now we get rtowi to cases. All the ceremony about signing the pact won't mean any more than an excercise In penmanship unless Soviet MG Head Congress breathes the breath of life into it. It's all in the hands of Congress now, The foreign ministers of K na- tions—ineludinK our own Secretary of State Arlieson—sieiicrt the aBree- ment under (lood lights in a Jam- packed auditorium where Senators and Representatives had to squeeze in. The pact was n solemn declaration, binding all 12, that they'd stand solidly in a military alliance a wall of steel, to stop any pnsli by Russia or Communism. And the agreement Is to last for '20 years All this sounds good, and il's nil done on a very high diplomatic plane, ami it's supposed to jolt Russia into minding > lc '' business. I but the agreement, after all, Ls a, treaty. i JJ. S. Key Member The United States Is the key member. And this country can't • take part in a treaty unless the U. S. Senate approves by a Uvo- thirds vote of its 96 members present at voting time. Some \vreks from now, after wading knee-deep through oratory for and against the pact—the first peacetime military alliance Amercan history—the Senate is expected to approve, although this is certainly not positive. But then comes something else: that part of the agreement in which the 12 nations say they will arm themselves and help one unothci arm just in case—in Russia should attack. Since we're the biggest and richest country and the one best abl to do the helping, President Truman is going to ask Congress to vote 51,000,000.000 or so to help our allies equip themselves against at tack. And Congress may vote only little of the money, or none all. even though that might mak the other pact-signers feel wc'r letting them down. They might feel that way—an feel that the hoopla about sigr ing the pact was just hoopla an g the pact only a piece of paper— w because they might think an alliance without arms isn't much of an alliance. Might Full Away Tn despair, if they felt that way, they'd be a soft touch for Russia. They might crumble, one by one, leaving us high and dry and alone on a limb, surrounded in a Conl- "ost Office Robbery Suspect, Accomplice Held for Federal Court PORT SMITH, Ark., April C I/Pi —Robert Lane. 19, accused of robbing the Chester, Ark., post office, and Audrey L.
