WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 1949 BLYTHEVtLLE (ARK.)' COOTIE* NEWS PACE 1HJLU Dulles Advocates Approval of Pact New York Senator Takes lime With Colleague from Ohio WASHINGTON, July 13. CAP) — Senator Dulles iR-NV) yesterday urged Senate approval ol Ihe Norlh Atlantic pad. He said il is the only easure that promises to save "oui -s lor a peaceful and free Eur. Dulles said Hie pact sliould save Germany for the West and spike 'Hie Communist twin guns of false uiomise and threat." The New Yorker, appointed only last week by Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York, took sharp issue with Senator Taft iR-Ohio) in his first Senate speech. Without mentioning the Ohio Senator by name, Dulles disputed Taft's contenlion that the pact commits this country a tremendous foreign arms program. Answering Tail's assertion tnat the security pact could not be regarded as a supplement to the United Nations charter "by any stretch of the imagination," Dulles declared: ••I have heard it said here that this North Atlantic treaty does violence to the spirit if not the letter of the United Nations charter and tha, it represents a step bauk- i ward. If I believed that. 1 would, of ] course, oppose the treaty. Treaty a Step Forward "It is my opinion that the North Atlantic treaty, lar from being a sicpbackward, is a step forward." Dulles, who has served as advis- I er to four secretaries of slate, totd his colleagues that by offering a solid front among the liee nations, vhe treaty may keep the strategi- illy placed Germans from turn- towerd.p Soviet alliance under,' *hich ''all our hopes and plans for R peaceiul and free Europe would crash to the ground." "Given the treaty", he said, "it may be possible to solve the problem of Germany. Without it 1 see no solution, nor have I heard any suggested." Dulles added that rejectioirof the treaty — Senate ratification of which Is considered certain before the week ends— "would at once revive the Communist offensive Western Europe." He said Congress will decide how much to spend on arms, adding: '•Certainly we give no other na- I tion or «roup of nations a blank check on the United States. That, it seems to me. is a preposterous interpretation of the treaty." South American Indian 1 Customs Don't Suit This American Housewife LOS ANGELES.

So Mrs. John Juniper Jones goes sailing into the Bon Ton on Main Street, prices gabardine suits, then snorts something about "ridiculous high prices" and goes sailing out again. Multiplied by a few million from coast i° coast, this scene has started a chain reaction that would make an atom bomb look like salt tablet. From left to right. Mrs. Jones' action has: 1. Caused the Bon Ton (and thousands of other shops which send buyers to New York's garment district) to instruct their buyers to go easy. 2. Caused the manufacturer, when confronted by dozens of reluctant buyers, to cut down hi: plans lor making garments and consequently, to place slimmer or- •omen's coats and suits, says it iiLs way: "I'm placing orders for nly about halt of my ember needs iiow. Who knows that'll na]]pen by tlien?" So, with supply up and demand Iowa, prices have naturally fallen. One manufacturer of a nationally- rtnown coat aiid suit label has cut li.s prict.s from five to 20 per cent jelow this time 1943, He can do it, j ; jecause the prices he pays for ma- :erials have dipped that much or nore. Some junkers are cutting their profits a mite, too, as an additional stimulant, to sales. ' fommon Fear With both manufacturer and retailer. Mie one thing they -always have hanging over their heads is the bogey-man of a big inventory. The idea of being stuck with a warehouse- full of unsaleable stuff Is unappenling.

'.'Pi— I Why bother with a burglar alarm? 1 Just keep your television set in I working order when you go away from home. Police reported yesterday that burglars apparently were so fascinated with the television set in the home of Mr. and Mrs. William E. Weber that they didn't get around to taking anything of value from tv.e house. The police found the floor around the machine littered with cigar and [ cigarette stubs, empty whiskey bot- and looted sardine cans.

Rut this season's buyers are ar- rivtng with double- pronged reminders from then- bosses. . First they're to remember that the wartime habit of ordering twice a.i much as they need— because they'll only ?et half anyway — is out. Nowadays, you ran have anything yov want.
