WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 1951 BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Russia May Sign Jap Peace Treaty Soviet Expected To Hold put for One Provision TOKYO, Aug. a. Iff— There is a i growing belief In this country that Russia will do the unexpected and sign the Japanese Peace Treaty in San Pranclfco next month. Reliable, If unofficial, Japanese circle* express the view that the Russians will sign alter putting up ft strong fight for Inclusion of one major provision. They say the Rec!s will agree to keeping an American military establishment In Japan—but will demand * definite date-for departure. They are opposed to * unilateral treaty between Japan and the United States. The view was expressed despite last night's threats Irom the Chinese Reds' Peiping radio that Japan's acceptance of a peace treaty not approved by ' both Red China and Russia would be considered an act of war. > Red China wasn't Invited to the peace treaty conference. Soviet Russia accepted alter considerable delay. . Load of Monkey Wrenches , The feeling around Gen. Matthew B Ridgway's Allied headquarters had been that the Soviet delegates enrout« to San Francisco are carrying brier cases loaded with mon- Icey wrenches. But Japanese sources predict the > Russians will sign the treaty If they «^ can thus prevent a separate treaty between the U£. and Japan. «• The present plan is for the. United States and Japan to sign a unilateral treaty as soon as the Ink Is dry on the treaty at San Francisco. This unilateral treaty would provide for the stationing of American trocps—between two and four divisions of ground troops plus an air force and a navy—in Japan until this country Ls able to defend herself. Russia to Sim "If" Russia' li believed willing to sign if the provisions of the military establishment are placed In the treaty and a date set for the last American soldier to leave Japan. Failing In this, the Russians may go ahead and sign anyway because pf several reasons. Even after the treaty U signed Jt must be ratified before It becomes effective. Signing would be a surprise and the Russians love to shock the dip lomatic world. Embassy Needed Another reason for believing the Russians will sign Is that they have to maintain an embassy here to continue their customary Communist propaganda activity among the people. Throughout Western Europe, the Red propaganda offices are directed from the embassies and everyone knows it. In Japan, the Russians have an impressive embassy atop a hill anc from a tall flag pole a gigantic red flag furls Impressively in the breeze, ercry day except Sunday. Closing their embassy would mean bulling out of Japan diplomatically and the Russians are too smart for that. M'ArthurWoritAttend Meeting, Report Says News of Men In the Service Robert S.
