WEDNESDAY, JAN. 28/1953 ^ - -:.'• * *f ,"' -\ •"-••'Billies' Foreign Policy "Talk* Simple, Hintjul fARK.V COURIKR By JAMES MARI.OW < WASHINGTON Lft^lJl his first * talk [o the nation on foreign policy *lnst night, new Secretary of State JJohn Fosler Dulles wns simple ^and vague but hinlfiil. • ' ' 4 VAllhougli President Truinan Bhd sh'ls Secretary of State Dean Ache; son made spme nationwide, explan- ;.'a : lory addresses on foreign policy ;*. lhey~ might have* won wider sup. ?'• port by-explaining" It ofCniier, and t'pai'Uculariy if Achesori had'pitched *iwhal he. said on ft simpler plane. ' I Dulles may hove felt they missed ;^he boat In not doing more and •j|iimpler explaining, His talk vras ^ fxtreniely simplified: He conducl- v'edVhls TV-radio audience on a 1 tour of the conihieirjs, showing '. .what Communisni was trying to s do and why it had to be stopped. s'l\ li "-'WHS, when lie got. down to i,noW:this country was going to stop >'Communism that''Dulles became l.ynspeclflc but'frankly said he-did ' ; not. intend to go into details, that ^he-had been in, office' six days '.'and "did not know all the answers. • :• Until'now Dulles,, in last night's " talk, and President Elsenhower, .. iri hla Inaugural address, ha,ve both spoken of foreign policy in only 'general terms. Being so ne«' In 'their jobs, neither could be expected to unroll a victory blueprint this early. But If what'both of them have •aid so far could be reduced to .:,one. sentence, this might be It: i In the fight with Russia this coun- •;try-needs Allies and will help :.them. That was the basic policy •;. laid- down by Truman and Ache• 'son.' . • ••> ... Backed In Campaign "'- Elsenhower and Dulles backed that basic policy In the presidential - campaign but criticized it as not nsr been effective enough. How intend to vary; it'or improve 'ls something they'll have lo reveal later. Perhaps Eisenhower will lift the lid a bit when he delivers his State, of the Union message to Congress next Mon"day. Dulles did hint that Eisenhower may have some plans for taking the wind out of Russia's sails when he said: "We shall try our best to stop the Korea .»>)d Indochina. .Today these ^^'ars go on because the enemy, thinks he's getting an advantage by con- linuinj the war, I believe iliat Gen. Elsenhower will find the ways to •Make Ihe cileniy change his mind in that respect so'that they too will want peace." Dulles may have been suggesting this country will Increase" Us aid to (he French who have been fighting the 'Communists In Indochina (or, years. But just what kind of help this country Intended for Its allies-was- something they could only .guess at from Dulles' talk. "You can count on'us" was'about the most emphatic he allowed him-: self-to'lie.' -.-. | "RiiHghlcned -Self Interest" I He repeatedly said "enlightened ! self-interest" will be this country's ' foreign policy guide. But again he left the'vest of the world to wonder ajxmt the. extent of his meaning when he said:: . . ."Our Job Js io serve our own enlightened self-interest by 'demonstrating-by our own performance, by our 'own examples, how good freedom is • and IVNV much better It Is than despotism." He gave cue severe nudge to the British, French and Germans by saying Ihat unless they are willing to do more for themselves by providing a unified front against Russia, this country may not be so willing to help them. So, although Dulles went into a great deal of detail explaining the menace of communism, he avoided delails In explaining how to combat It. The Truman-Acheson foreign policy was called "containment," moaning to keep communism from spreading any further. Only time can show whether Elsenhower and Dulles can think of a way to go" beyond containment and actually roll communism back without war. 19-Year-Old British Youth Hanged For Murder Shot He Didn't Fire More Casualties Are Identified, WASHINGTON (ffo _ The Defense Department today identified 169 additional battle .casualties in Korea..A new, list No. 137 reported M killed. 122 wounded.. 13 missing and 1 captured, it also listed as prisoners of the enemy four men prev- i iously reported missing In action.
