Revolt by Satellite Nation * Would Pose Difficult Problem By ELTON C. FAY AP Military Affairs Reporter WASHINGTON OR — An armed revolt by a satellite nation against the Soviet Union could pose the most dangerous and difficult prob- em confronting the U. S. in all the years of the cold war. America would have to decide quickly whether it should help the satellite, and determine the ex- :ent and form of help. Any direct support of American armed forces to the satellite presumably would mean engagement with troops of the USSR and create the direct danger of setting off World War TU. Conversely, failure to help could njure American prestige irrepa- •ably and discourage other Communist-conquered countries from seeking freedom. The possibility of an elaborate Vloscow plan to start a war and olace the apparent blame on the !ree world would have to be reckoned with. Ruthless Kremlin policy would not hesitate to foment a revolutionary move deliberately :o set the stage for intervention and world war. The U. S. and other Western nations would have to decide — and that quickly— whether an uprising was genuine. Aid short of a full-scale expeditionary force could be given a revolting satellite by Western nations but its value would be determined by the extent to which Russia moved against the revolution and the interpretation she might choose to place on the aid. In Washington, the prospect of an uprising by a satellite nation against Russia—as distinguished from Tito's Woodless defection from the Moscow camp—is looked upon as a possibility for the future which must be considered, but which does not appear imminent. There is no known move either within the U. S. government or among political parties here to incite a revolt in Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary, Rumania, Bulgaria or the Eastern Hemisphere satellites. Aside from the danger of sparking a war there is the possibility of failure. An unsuccessful revolt against Soviet Russia could bring grim retribution. of a prosperous famer, Penny the general's inspection trips—she's staying close to the NATO commander's "compour.d" at Marnes-la-Coquette, near Paris. But like any other American in France, Penny has a lot of plans. "I'm looking forward to the day when I can visit all the museums," she says. "Guess I'll have to wear my low-heeled shoes." She'd like to attend classes in one of the famous Parisian art schools, too. Penny has a w a y s been interested in painting, although she never had much time to study it until recently.

While the Boston ivy will grow in the shade, the Baltic ivy will not withstand a sunny location in the winter.

A— The canes which bore fruit this year should be cut off at the ground line and burned to reduce danger of diseases overwintering. These canes will never produce again but will take up the moisture and plant nutrients from the soil needed to develop nex*'year's crop.
