THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 1980 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS State Department Convinced Armed Germany Is No Aid that Bradley was dis- theoretical question and By JOHN M. HIGH TOWER WASHINGTON, Julie « (AP) — State Department officials were reported convinced today that any effort now to rearm Western Germany would weaken rather than •strengthen the defenses of the West against-Russia. To this conviction Is mainly attributed Secretary of State Acheson's firm reassertlon yesterday of American policy that Germany must be kept disarmed, despite official word that from the military point of view its rearmament in the West would be a good thing. Acheson's position in foreign policy matters Is decisive, under the President's authority. Kence, it Ls apparent that any thought of direct action by the United Stales at this time to form a West German Army Is out of the question. Issue Brings Clash However, it also appears that the issue has brought about a clash of political and military views, and As likely to remain a lively contro- •jjprsv Inside the government for 'Souths. x Gen. Omar Bradley, chairman of the Joint- chiefs of staff, told a House committee Tuesday that he believes "the defenses of Western Europe would be strengthened by Including Germany or, such part of It as we control." But lie added that he was not qualified to judge the political considerations in such a case. Bradley Discussion Acheson told his news conference yesterday cussing a had made it quite clear thai he was not advocating German rearmament. While Acheson thus stated the technical situation it is common, knowledge that many if not all top military leaders regard Germany as a potentially valuable source of military strength for-the West. On the other side of the iron curtain the Russians evidently have the same thing in mind. They have formed a well-armed East German "police force" which the Western powers have bluntly called a military organization. Political Cooperation State Department officials, how- rver, take the position that the defense of the West rests primarily jot on th». number of men and guns ^Jat can be mustered but. on the 'political; cooperation 1 ;,:and^single minded determination of the .Western powers to act' together in al' matters involving their securiti against the Soviet Union. It Is Hgainst this principle, that the department officials measure the Issue of rearming Germany Their belief is that, IJie Western Europe»n members, of the Atlantic Alliance still have very great-fears of * rearmed Germany. Thus their willing cooperation In creating effective and powerful forces under th« Atlantic Treaty- would be endangered by any effort to bring Germany into the picture. France Frightened They contend that France, for example, would probably be more frightened at this Idea of a rearmed Germany than of the dangers o£ Russian attack. This could greatly weaken French support for the Atlantic Alliance. However, responsible officials say that this situation may not always hold true and that for this reason, among others, the question of German rearmament cannot be regarded as permanently settled. Grovdh of Democrat? Two factors may have an important bearing on the future development of this question. One Is the growth or lack of growth of real democracy inside Germany. It the political atmosphere of the Western 7X3nes becomes increasingly that of what the diplomats call ^'peace loving democracy" then the iJRear of Germany's Western neigh bors may give way to a sense of confidence in the future. ' The other factor is thc'progre." which the Western powers make in developing what Secretary Acheson calls "balanced collective forces." No one officially has yet defined Just what this means. It it lead; to the creation of Internationa' armies under a single suprerm commander—as it might if wai appeared a. real posibility in tht future— then the question of employing German manpower could be approached from the point, fitting relatively srtiall German military units into the internation R! force. That would avoid creation of a German national army. Democrat Group To Take Stand on Negro Candidates LITTLE ROCK, Julie 8. (#*/— A meeting of the Arkansas State Democratic Committee to take a stand on whether Negroes may become candidates in party primaries will > held here next Tuesday.

Butler, old Ihe coroner's jury the man led apparently of natural causes. WASHINGTON, June 8. M 1 )—The American appetite for meat i.s stronger now than at any time since the summer of 1948. The Agriculture Department in reporting this today said the desire (or more mt'at—particularly beef— is reflected in a heavier denuuiH at the meat counter and in rising prices. Just after the war, demand for meat was unusually strong relative to consumers' 'incomes, the agency said. In tlie summer of 1918, demand rose to a peak. It then weakened, beginnhv a prolonged decline. In 1949, consumers spent a smaller portion of their incomes for meat than, they did before the war. "The strengthening this spring is the first material increase in demand for meat since the summer of 1948," the department said. "Nevertheless, the gain in demand is probably no greater than the rise that has occurred in incomes. The retail value of meat consumed is probably remaining slightly below a prewar average relationship to incomes." The department said it Is unlikely that demand for meat will increase much more in the coming months or the next yeir or two, unless it is stimulated by further rise in personal incomes. Nevertheless, prices of most, meats and meat animals are likely to go higher during the summer. They usually advance during . that season, inasmuch >as it is the period of shortest supplies. Price increases are likely to be most noticeable In the case of icry Volcano Pours • More Lava into Sea HONOLULU.
