MOWDAT, JAW, 26, 19W (AUK.)' COtTHlgK ke and Dulles to Outline : oreign Policy in Talks By JOHN.M. HIGHTOWKR WASHINGTON W) — President lisenhower and Secretary of State ulles probably will outline the ew administration's foreign poly steps In major speeches dur- B the next few days. The new administration is 'also tely to begin reorganizing top- vel agencies responsible for cold <ir policies and operations into new kind of civilian high com- and setup. Eisenhower, according to present idlcatlons, will deliver his Stale "the Union message to Congress :>¥jjbly Thursday or Friday. 1/^old E. Slassen, nominated \o e director of the Mutual Security gcncy, told the Senate Foreign clallons Committee last week iat the. message "will make very ear the manner in which ... for- gn policy and its implemenla- ion takes on certain changes." On Tuesday night Secretary Duls is due to make 'a broadcast i the nation from his office. Aides ;nid it would -.cover ihe globe, ighlight,problems to be met and Ive some Indication of administrator) thinking on how to meet them. To Europe Friday On Friday Dulles and stassen ire due to take off on a fast 10- ny tour of Western European cap- tals to get fivst-hund information themselves and Ihe President in progress in European unity and efense organization and on Euro- >ean needs for American 'military ind economic assistance. The con- erences they will hold will be the irst between top American o/fi- ials' and Allied leaders abroad •ince the new administration took i/fice. They probably will be con- :erned more with gathering facts lan with developing policy views. While Stassen did not tell the Icnale committee In his appear- "-•yat a closed hearing Wednes- JJ/iat changes President Eisen- toWer ^has in mind in the field foreign affairs, he said some -hanges had' been indicated "in he President's earlier speeches." During the presidential election campaign, both Eisenhower and 'lilies spoke out repeatedly of I'hat they considered to be a *neert or, the U. B. and its allies to take ie offensive In the conflict with Soviet communism. • Dulles in effect reaffirmed this •tew last week when he testified Before the Senate committee and .'^pressed the conviction that the . S. can develop the use of moral nd propaganda pressures for the iberation. of Soviet satellite na- ons. This tied in with an idea which isenhower expressed during the Campaign: that leaders of the 'ommunist bloc can be made un- ertain of their hold over the satel- ite states. Psycholoiclcal Warfare , Eisenhower has been reported ilanning a study of psychological 'arfare methods made by special committee , headed by William H. Jackson, a New York banker and former deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Jackson conferred with the President at (he White House Saturday. It is understood that,'when the study Is completed. Jackson will head gf the reorganized Psychological Strategy Agency, charged with Planning and directing:'the use of propaganda and any 9ther suitable means for bringing pressure to bear on the Soviet bloc. Another move reported by persons /amllfar with administration thinking Is expansion, and reorganization of the National Security Council, of which the President is chairman. The council has-lhe general task of co-ordinating the work of the State and Defense Departments and the CIA, as well as any other branches of the government concerned with" the conduct of foreign affairs. it is expected to be reorganized so that it will have not only the policy-making functions which it has not previously exercised but also will include several members with no responsibility other than those of long-range planning. ^The idea Is to make the maximum' use of the nation's total power and resources in the conflict with the Soviet Union.

Pentagon Puzzler-Why Should U.S. Soldiers Refuse to Fight? By ELTON' C. PAY 1 WASHINGTON Un— Why would soldiers, with a proud record of valor in combat, suddenly disobey orders and refuse to fight? (lie underlying questloi'i in a coldly legal issue coining up for formal review by the judge advocate general and the Military Court of Appeals. It (s a puzzler (hat taunts the Pentagon high command as well as the, Korea field command. The answer could be the key to what some officers call "a great pity"— the courts martial of SI men and one officer of the 65ih Puerto Rictm Regiment for refusing to attack - a Communist position. Army headquarters is reserving opinion ; until -'full details arrive. Perhaps Gen. J. Lawlbn Collins, Army chief of staff, will get some details first hand on his current visit to the battlcfront. But some -officers, including some who saw the 65th fight courageously through Ihe long early months of the Korean War suggested factors that might have contributed to the paradoxical situation. Rotation, It was suggested, might be an Indirect cause. .The 65th Regiment, a unit of Ihe 3rd Infantry Division, landed in Korea In November, 1950, Just five months after Ihe tlshtlng begun. Its officers, commissioned and noncommissioned, had been In the regiment for years and spoke Spanish as well as English. This is important, not-only because It made verbal orders easier to understand, but because It built a closer camaiaderle from privates to brass, But with rotation the regiment lost many of Us bilingual leaders. Then, last October, in the thick ol a fight, two companies were ordered to continue counterattacking Chinese Communist positions. A regimental spokesman said - a number of men withdrew without orders and other men, out \vilh a patrol, slipped back to the main line. Refusal (o obey orders in battle Is a serious offense. It can cost tlie lives of other soldiers, as the Army charges It did in this case. The sentences Imposed by the court martial In Korea ranged from dishonorable or. bad conduct discharges to h 10-year Imprisonment in one case. Pour were acquitted and another case is pending-. Tlie review of the court martial action Is automatic. The whole regiment, numbering about. 3,000 to 4,000 men, was pulled out of the line after the incident, "retrained" and sent back into action. Tha case Is the second of similar proportions in tho Korean War. Early in (he campaign, charges were brought against a number of men of the 24th Regiment of the 25(h Division for refusal to fight, described in the crisp talk of fighting men as "bug out." The 24th was composed largely of Negro troops. CORONATION TIME-Amon t; hundreds of souvenir* b«!ng! produced in connection with' Queen Elizabeth II's coronation incxl June is this novel wall • clock.
