' PAtiC EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIEB NEWS SATURDAY, JULY 30, 194» NATION TOD-AY— East-West Tension Expected to Cover [Period of Years f By James Mariotr I WASHINGTON, July 31. (&> —American planners are looking lor- lif»rd to years of tension between the West and Russia. | General Omar N. Bradley, Army chief of staff, snid this clearly In his slalcjnenl to the House Foreign Affairs Committee yesterday. I He was urging Congress to ap-+ 'prove speedily this country's plan to arm Western Europe against any Russian attack. And he said: "With our allies, strong or weak. as they may be. we foce a long period of tension. "No* that the Atlantic Pact lias been formed we can surely anticipate thai any aggressor <he didn't name Rus-sla> will alternate)}' press and quell the crises, hoping to hold the signatory powers 'n perpetual Irresolution." But how lone will It lake to arm Western Europe? Defense Secretary Johnson tolrt the same committee about four or five years. So. If the plan starts this year. We-stern Europe should be pretty well armed by 1953 or 1954 Alliw Would Bear Brunt of Attack This doesn't mean tliat by then the armies of Western Europe would be strong enough to defeat Russia. II she attacked. It means—according to the American planners—that Western Europe would be strong enough to hold off the early stages of an attack until this country could go to Us defense. Bradley said it would be up lo the armies of the allies to bear the brunt of the early attacks until we could mobilize. • In the meantime? Bradley said we'd swing into action with the atomic bomb and our long-range bombers. But. meanwhile, what about the Russians? If Europe were nrmed and we could bomb Russia with the atomic bomb, would Russia be likely to attack at all unless she loo had an atomic bomb? That raises the question ot time and Russia's ability to make the bomb. Arid It brings back a warn Ing which isn't mentioned oftci now but was Issued only two year ago this month.
