An apparent divergence of opinion between Keiimin and Secretary of State Dulles was smoothed over lust night by the Stale Department. A department statement that Dulles regards the affnir ns a "closed episode" indicated the secretary was satisfied Kennan had not deliberately set out to assail ideas just expressed by Dulles. The statement, however, dltl nothing lo resolve tho apparently real conflict between the basic ideas expressed by the two men. Dulles . accepted Kennan's explanation! in a face-to-face meet- Ing at the State Department yesterday, that a sneec.1: hc,b5-Ivcred Jan. 16 at Scranton, Pa., was not tcrday, that a speech he delivered designed as criticism of testimony Dulles gave a day earlier before a Senate committee. Following the meeting yesterday Ihe State Department press office released a statement saying Kennan hud prepared his speech, cleared It with other State Department officials—then still working under former Secretary Acheson—and distributed it to newsmen before Dulles spoke lo the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. "No Relation to Dulles" The speech, Ihe stale Department said, had "no relation lo Mr. Dulles' remarks" and Dulles "considers the episode closed." Kennan becomes eligible for retirement In February, 1054. He has told friends ho would like lo serve until then before seriously considering retirement. During tho political campaigns Dulles sharply criticized the policy of containment of Soviet power— a policy with which Kennan has long been Identified—and advocated a new policy or "liberation" toward Soviet satellite states. Dulles reaffirmed his belief In such a new policy when he spoke before the Scnale commlllce. Kennan, on the other hand. In effect defended the bnslc line of tho containment policy In his Scranton speech and a f g u c d against Ihe adopllon by the U.
