TUESDAY, MAY SO, 1950 BI/rniEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THHES Soviet Offers Grain to West Russia Gives * Favorable Reply To Trade Plan GENEVA, Switzerland, May 30. M>>—A Soviet offer lo negotiate an agreement for the large-aoalc supply or Russian grain lo Western Europe was published here today by the United Nations Economic (Jommissipn for Europe. Pi Prof. Gunnar Myrdal, ot Sweden, tiie commission's executive secretary suggested last November that a Brain agreement should be negotiated between East ana West Europe to break the postwar stagnation of trade between the two areas "Favorably llccclvcil" The Soviet reply, made public by Myrdal today, said that the proposal had been "favorably received by the government of the U.S.S.B." Tiie uroiiosed agreement woulc include long term purchase com ItmeiiU by the West with uppc: and lower price limits and minlinun quantity commitments. In return the Western countries would per mil the proceeds from the sale o the Eastern supplies to be used fo purchases selected from nil agreed list of .Western products, free o export controls. Soviet Causes Deadlock Myriial told today's news conference that the East-West trade deadlock had been largely caused by a Soviet refusal to provide information on potential exports and a simultaneous western refusal to relax exiwrt controls on strategic industrial products. "I must emphasize," Myrdal declared, "that no government has re- trcnlcd from its .principles In this To Discuss Business ."But they are prepared now to 'Skuss business on. a technical level. 'rosy have expressed an interest iti opening negotiations." Myrdal said he would now "sound out" the situation and, given favorable, conditions, a European grain conference might be called by the end of this summer to discuss a draft European grain treaty to be worked out nienmvhile by the commission's secretariat. The question is almost certain to be brought up during the fifth session of the commission opening here tomorrow with both United States and Soviet delegates participating.

By J:UUM MarUw WASHINGTON, May 30 —(<!>)— Early In May Secretary of Stale Acheson went to Europe. Tomorrow he will make a report in person to Congress on what happened overseas. It wii.s an important trip. And when the secretary finishes talking there will be the iL^uiit criticism and praise if Congress reacts as !l does to most tilings. "A Ix>riu Fiftht" If you had to sum up what Acheson will say it probably would uo like this: "iioys, we're up to our necks in a long fight with Communism and we may as well get used to It and do what we can to win." Then for a long lime to come Congress will have to be making decisions. In April, 1949, these countries signed the North Atlantic Fact:: the U.S.j Britain, Canada, France, Bcl&uiin.
