Secretary of State Dulles, discussing: this subject publicly for the first lime since the new administration took power, told a national radio and television audience last night: • "Today these wars go on because the enemy thinks he's get- ing an advantage by continuing the war. r believe that Gen. Eisenhower will find the ways to make he enemy change his mind in that respect so that they too will want peace." , ' D , uli cf statement was described authoritatively as being based upon plans for specific moves, although -he gave no hint in his speech as to what these moves will be However, in a preelection speech in October, Dulles said Russia had an advantage cut of continuing. the Korean War by the fact that American troops are tied up there and by propagandizing the conflict as a campaign of Americans against Asians. These advantages could be denied and the prospects for peace greatly advanced' he then said, by replacing American forces in Korea with South Korean troops.

"President Eisenhower is absolutely opposed to any such policy " Dulles declared, "and so of course am I and all of my associates in the State Department nnd In the foreign scrylce."
