'A peace program which extends all countries these fundamental guarantees, he believe's, will be successful. . ' "All nations, as well as our own," he said, "are fearful of their security and fearfal of coming to any agreement, which would permit foreign ideologies and" creeds being imposed upon them. ,. < " "If"th£ Russians feel we can't Interfere-jwith their brand of communism, if .we teel that the Russians, qan't v interfere.-'with our political •forms, if the-prench feel that neither country can Inflict its system - on them—theri*we can get peace in the world. '.'But if we expect other nations not to imp'ose t their ideologies on neighboring countries, we must be careful not, to- attempt to do that ourselves." Barbey said "that America, "militarily and- economically," is the strongest country In the world. "We cannot be competed with at present in these fields by any other country. It is therefore to the advantage of other nations who wish to-be.jon a par-with us to come to an agreement with us in. order to obtain advantage of our great financial re'sonrces and .to bring oui- armament, down A to> the level of less pow-' erful countries." Ari"agreement of this nature, Barbey continued* -would benefit the world ""by the.,elimination of weapons of ^mass destruction — atom bombs, i-ockets, pilotless bombs, bacteriological warfare—arid the reduction of land, air and'na'fBt forces to a fraction of their wai strength." ,. , «Table Lamps tV • Bathroom.
