FAOBTEN Dulles' Plan on Red Satellites Certain ToMeetOpposition WASHINGTON OR—John Foster Dulles seems certain to encounter an argument within the State Department over his plan'to try to loosen Russia's hold over Its satellites by new political and propaganda strategy. The secretary of; state-designate for the Eisenhower administration told tile Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday he is convinced that a policy of expressing U. 6- concern for peaceful llbera- tloh'of the Iron Curtain lands can and must be adopted. After-hearing Dulles on this and other foreign policy views for two hours, the committee unanimously voted to recommend Senate confirmation of Dulles after the inauguration next Tuesday. Dulles eald "no permanent reconciliation" with Russia Is pos- •ible co long as the Kremlin seeks to extend Its power over the free world. He thought that "limited agreements of a working character" may b« possible. "A policy which only contains Russia Is bound to fail," Dulles •aid, referring to the basic containment theory of the outgoing Truman administration. Soviet power, ha continued, can be cut back "la * way which will not In- •tituto a general war or Instigate an Insurrection (In * satellite country) that would be crushed." He cited Yugoslavia as an example ef » nation which has broken away from Kremlin domination. It la on th* point ol what may b« done short of risking new danger or trouble with Allied ooufi- trle* that the incoming secretary aeema destined to run Into argument and objection in the State Department. Risk of UprWnr .Present policy advisers. Including career diplomats who will carry over into the new regime, have developed . their thinking around the Idea of preventing new expansion of Russian power rather than rolling It back. They have long contended that propaganda which focuses on freedom In the satellites runs a serious risk of wiling off futile uprising. • They have also argued that the V. S. nnd its allies are not prepared to back .such appeals with force. If that should become necessary. Concern has been expressed, too, that Western European countries would oppose any political nnd psychological oflcnslve which they thought might threaten to set off World' War in. Thus It appears that Dulles will either have to overcome contrary arguments of various holdover «d- visors, or replace them with men who share his conviction that a cold war offensive Is both practical and a reasonable risk. "We shall never have peace or a happy world," Dulles told the committee, "So long an Soviet communism dominates one third of all the peoples of the world and tries to extend Its domination." A liberation policy "docs not mean a war of liberation," Dulles ssid, and he added: "Those who say It can't be done by- moral pressures and the weight of propaganda don't know what they're talking about." Other major points made by Dulles: 1. The He between Soviet Russia and Communist China is an "unholy one," and the U. S. "cannot tolerate" its continuance; the new administration Intends to give more attention to Russia's moves In the Far East. 3, One present danger point is In Western Europe, where he said there Is ft "slipping away" from that unity of free' nations which American policy has aimed at achieving. 3. In Latin America Communists nnd what Dulles 'culled Fascists havo formed n "working alliance to destroy American prestige and power." Rocket Takes Instrument Up 50 Miles to Snap Photo of Sun BOOLDER, Co!o. Wr-^A rocket nai carried an Instrument designed by tTnlrerslty of Colorado scientists 50 miles above the earth.for! the first pictures of the sun's spectrum In extreme ultraviolet wavelengths'. ..''•. The rocket was Jlrcd last month »t Kolloman Research and Devoir cpment Center, New Mexico, and ' results of the tests were announced today, by W. B. Plelenpol, head of the university's physics department. He also Is supervisor of trie upper 'atmosphere research program. Pietenpol reported that university physicists have worked three years, to perfect what he said ts a sun-seeking device, or pointing control for high-altitude rockets. Tha electronic-mechanical object Is designed to hold an Instrument pointed at the sun while a rocket rolls and yaws in flight. It also has to be rugged enough to withstand the forces of high acceleration and to operate so that film can be exposed. The /Colorado scientist said the instrument mounted in the rocket fired last month, pointed directly at-the sun lor » considerable period and obtained a. 28-aecond exposure of the Epectruni. ' Fhotocraphed Previously Dr. Pletenpol said that scientists irevtoiisly photographed the BPCC- rum to about' 2,000 Angstrom mils, but that In the Colorado experiment powerful ultraviolet radl- itiou emitted by the hydrogen In :lie sun's nlmosphcre \vas photographed for tho first time. Much of that radiation Is concentrated In a speolrurh Hue at 1,316 Angstrum units, or the so- called Lyman Alpha Line. It was what the University scientists hope lo get and succeeded in pholo- Kraphlng. Dr. Plofenpol explained that solar radiation Is the cause of iono spheric layers In the upper atmosphere and those stratified concen !rations of electrons can be ob served by radio wave reflcctlor and nre an Important factor ir adlo propagation. The ionosphere rises from the absorption' of ultraviolet radiation from the sun, Dr. Pielenpol continued, aiid the absorption ha great .meteorological significance. The University of Colorado research Is supported by the Ail Force Cambridge Research Ceil ter geophysics division. Hesearch co-operation came from Dr. Mar cus O'Day and Dr. Howard Ed wards of Ihe Cambridge labora torles.

General Keeps Luncheon Date In Spite of Fog NEW YORK m— Dense fog kept the Air Force chief of staff's plane from landing nt LaGiiardla Field [or four hours, yesterday, but, he partially kept his luncheon speaking date anyhow. , Gen.

The National Hesearch Council Is expected to recommend a plan for federal distribution of one million free doses of Ihe promising paralytic polio preventive — all :bat will be available by June 30 for a nation which has 46 million children under age 15. Gamma globulin, which has possibilities for temporary protection against polio paralysis, Is not Ihe final answer to the disease, doctors say, but II is considered the best stop-gap for use until a long- lasling protective vaccine Is developed. The meeting will bring to » climax a series of discussions on the thorny problem of distribution which have been in progress since last summer when the dramatic piomlse of gamma globulin first was demonstrated. Responsibility It was learned by The Associated Press that whatever plan is recommended by the NRC—a quasl- governmcnlal agency—Ihe direct allocation of supplies of gamma globulin to Individual recipients will be the responsibility of health officers of the various slates. Gamma globulin Is derived from blood. The one million free doses which will be available for use In the polio fight by June 30 will come from blood donated by Americans through the blood collection program of the Red Cross. It. Involves a lengthy process and only a few manufacturers are equipped to do It. The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis estimates that in any given summer approximately two million children arc exposed to polio (n epidemic areas. The expected supply of gamma globulin would thus be sufficient to give a single shot of the material to half of them. Even on that basis, any dlstrlbu- llon nnd allocation plan will necessarily involve a choice between children—a decision that virtually parallels that of King 'Solomon when faced with the pleas of two women over the disputed child. Ami, (he avnllnbtlity of one million doses will not necessarily mean that one million children will Bet It. The potential protection of the material against paralytic polic lasts only four or five weeks, according to present evidence. So one of the things which may bo decided at next week's meeting is this: Should a single shot be given to a certain number of Individuals —with a chance of protecting them for only four or five weeks—or should more ilian one shot be given lo a lesser number, with a chance of protecting them fully for the entire summer polio season? Another Question Another 1 m p o r t a n t question which will confront l^ie National Research Council conferees Is this: Since some adults—as well as children—arc susceptible to polio, lo what extent should a choice br made between children and ndults" For example what about prognnr women in an area hit by polio? The National Research Counr catne into the gamma globulin pic lure this way: The government's Office of Dr fcnse Mobilization has for sou] time been charged with the respon slbility of seeing that as muc: blood as possible Is available to: Ihe needs of the armed forces anc of civilian defense. Successful demonstration ' o I gaminn globulin's value in the polio fight might have a'serious un- to for the polio need. So the ODM called upon the Hed Cross to step up Its blood-collec- (ton program to meet all needs— and also to assume responsibility for getting manufacturers to Increase their production of gamma globulin from Hed Cross blood. And, realizing that dema would outrun production, DM called upon the National Research Council to study the .whole situation. Soldier Freed Of Sleeping on Post Charge FT.
