MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 1951 BtATHEVIIXE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS lfW.1 Strong Southeast Europe Believed Aim of Harriman In Visit to Marsha! Tito BLED, Yugoslavia, Aug. 27. (API —Formation of « strong defensive bloc against Russian Imuerlallsin In southeastern Europe Is believed here to have hen the aim of w. Averell Hnrrirnan's week-end visit j$o Marshal Tito. . Harriman, President. Truman's top-ranking diplomatic trouble shooter, paused In Yugoslavia Saturday and Sunday en route from Tehran. Iran, to London. It is an open secret that the U.S.. Britain and various other Atlantic Pact countries would like countries in this area—Yugoslavia. Greece. Turkey and perhaps Italy—to draw together in a military alliance. Collectively they could mount enough strength in fighting men nnd material to challenge, with American help, Soviet hopes of obtaining a controlling position In the Mediterranean. Yugoslavia has an army second in size only to Russia on the European continent; the Greek army has been toughened by its experiences in the recently-ended civil war and IS equipped by the U.S." The Turks always have proved formidable foes. Dream started In 194ft The U.S.' State Department and Joint Chiefs of Staff dreamed of such an alliance as long ago as 1946. At lhat time. Tito sill! was allied with the Kremlin. Support for the alliance was demonstrated by congressional passage of the Greek-Turkey aid bill which bolstered anti-Russian morale in both countries. ^f,With the split between Tito and Stalin the situation improved further. Yugoslavia, while insisting on a neutral position, had to turn to the West for economic aid and military equipment no longer available from its one time Communist allies. All these factors were brought out over the luncheon table Saturday where Harriman and Tito sat talk- irg for-five hours. Kmphasis N'ot Too Strong It is doubtful if tile chain-smoking Harriman em pha sized too strongly the U.S. -lesire for a southeast Europe alliance since he is well aware of how "ispicious and resentful other ( countries are of American interference 1 in their if- fairs. But it is probable that he emphasized^to Tito that the spigots of American aid—both military and economic—would be opened wider if Yugoslavia will say frankly where it will stand in event of a third world war. Harriman, who lias had wide diplomatic exnerience in London, Moscow and Washington, looks at the nroblem of southeaster]! Europe from a geographical rather than a political point of view. It Seem* Natural To him it seems natural lhat Yugoslavia, Greece and Turkey should be drawn together tor protection against Russia despite their political differences. It Is » bit different in the case of Italy. Open wounds still remain between Yugoslavs and Italians stemming from the Italian Peace Treaty. Until such questions as the future of Trieste are solved there seems little chance of partnership. Harriman spent Saturday night in a villa across a lake from Tito's home. Notes of the American song "Solitude" drifted over the water- expressing Yugoslavia's present position In the world. Perhaps Harriman's (alks have helped to change the tune. Polio Victim Becomes Top Model and Movie Starlet Ike's' GOP Supporters Content to 'Rock Along' WASHINGTON, Aug. 37. (AP) — Gen, Dwight D. Eisenhower's Republican supporters evidently are content to let hl» prospective Presidential candidacy rock along while without nudging. Senator Duff (R-Pa), regarded as one of the leaders ol the Eisenhower boom, has told Senate friends he is content not to beat up the political bushes until after Congress quite, probably In October. Duff apparently Is well pleased with the way things are going in the absence of any definite assurance from Eisenhower thai he will be availably tor th« Republican nomination. v ^. It ift the Pennsylvania senator's •Kitude that a groilndswell from the Wnks Is worth several manufactured wave* of sentiment. And he apparently thinks the groundswell is on.

Thomas E Dewey of New York from »n Inspection trip to the Far East Is expected to bring renewed efforts from the Dewey camp In behalf of Eisenhower's potential candidacy.

Friends of Senator Taft (R-Ohiol. whose race for the nomination Is still .unofficial, said they are satisfied with the Impression he made -1 a. New England tour last week. Taft would like to break Into the eastern seaboard with some convention delegate support to add to the Middle West and Southern strength he is credited with having. Senator Brewster (R-Me) Is doing his best to help Taft out in that Effort. However, Senator Margaret Chase Smith stayed away from the Taft appearance is her state and is regarded by the Elsenhower followers as one of them.

Soon she was in great demand as a model of swim suits, since her shapely girl wlio has ail the physical assets for Hollywood stardom, told me her story as we lunched at the Brown D«rby.

CAP)—Physical culturlst Bernarr MacFadden, who celebrated his 83rd birthday with a 2,000-foot parachute Jump into the Hudson River, yesterday, says he is "good for things like this for 10 more years." "I recommend this for everybody." he adds. "It's a damn jjood thing to do. I could do it every day in the week." When MacFadden was fished out of the Hudson after his jump yesterday, he said: "I feel like a million. I feel 25. Next year, I'm going to jump over rfiagRra Falls " MacFadden's parachute leap yesterday was for the dual purpose, he said, of demonstratlong that "old age is Just a habit" and that U.S. paratroopers need have no fear of landing in water. 'But the publisher of health pamphlets and romance magazines almost failed to accomplish the second purpose. A wind caught MacFadden and almost dashed him Into the rocky palisades. Then he narrowly missed a clump of trees on the cliff, and finally landed in the river only 20 feet off the New Jersey shore, near Alpine and opposite Yonkers, N.Y., Just north of New York City. From both banks of the Hudson, thousands of onlookers watched as the octogenarian jumped, his ski suit looking like red flannel underwear. Rescuers.dragged him Into a fishing boat. Then MacFadden transferred to a yacht and personally took the wheel. But first he discarded his ski suit, white life belt and helmet, and changed Into a gray suit and shirt, ptaid bow tie and straw hat. MacFadden had intended to Jump near the George Washington bridge, but New York city authorities sent up a police helicopter to shoo him away. So he took his stunt upstream. Silimar bouts with Canadian and American authorities had caused him previously to drop, at least temporarily, plans to parachute next week Into the churning waters below Niagara Palls, he said.
