WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER T, 1958 BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.)' COURIER- NEWS PAQI SEVEN Aging Adenauer On Way to Talk With Russians By JAMES MARLOW AMOcUted Preit News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — An old man, West Germany's Chancellor Adenauer, arrives in Moscow this week to. talk with the Kremlin chiefs, knowing they may be waiting for age or his eventual death to remove him from their path. The Russians had Invited him its desire for a peaceful settlement to discus: diplomatic, trade and cultural relations between their two countries. He said he wanted to talk about something else too, something that 'vas closest to his heart— the reunification of Germany and the freeing of German war prisoners. The fact that Germany is still torn apart, that East Germany is held by the Communists, is a family tragedy for him and all Germans. But if Adenauer, lacking Just four months of being 80, has any hopes of a settlement on Germany from the Russians — on his terms, not theirs — they must be modest hopes. He is a political realist. Adenauer has been a kind of heroic postwar figure, a man of character and vision. Under his leadership, and with American help. West Germany has surged back amazingly from the ruins of 1945. Allegiance to West Aliwancc » «r»i th are llkely to .His allegiance has been to,,the „ * West, not to Russia. What the West Geune ^ ena . uer were ( , ust as Adenauer does, with free elections in which the people can choose their own government. . The West has been confident a united Germany would choose a Kovernment which, with or without Adenauer at the head, would folio* his policy of a rearmed Germany in i military alliance with the West. But the Russians and East German Communists have dangled a price-lag In front of Adenauer if he wants a unified Germany: West Germany , must pull out of the Western Alliance. What they'd like is an unarmed, neutralized Germany. Afterwards, they could hope the new Germany would turn east. Adenauer shows no sign of willingness to pay their '"HO 'has feared that the West, In! in Europe, might stetle with, the Russians on terms which would leave Germany divided, perhaps permanently. Hu Ikt'l Backlni The Eisenhower administration has assured him this country will insist, on German unification as part of any agreement with Russia on Europe. President Eisenhower and Vice President Nixon did what they could to strengthen his hand before his Journey to Moscow. Last week they called upon the Russians to show their good intentions by permitting Germany to be united. But in the end the United States, Eussia, Britain and France — as the victors over Germany in World War n — will have to make the final settlement on Germany The West will attempt to do that when the Big Four foreign ministers meet in Geneva in October. What the Russians say to Adenauer in Moscow may indicate whal likely to say later at to show weak- buy German unification at the Russian price — he would critically unde/mine the Western foreign ministers before they ever reach Geneva. He shows no sign of doing so. But because he is old and pro- Western the Russians may feel they can stall on Germany until through his death or retirement he gives way to a successor who is easier to deal with.
