THURSDAT, SEPTEMBER 8,1WB BLTTHEVn-LB (ARKJ COURIER WBWg Any US-Russia Disarmament Agreement Will Be Limited By JAMES MAKLOW . Associated Pros Newi An»ly»t WASHINGTON (AP) — The world got a happy jolt when President Eisenhower, last July in Geneva, proposed the United States and Russia swap complete military information and inspect each other's area from the air to prevent cheating. That suggestion — added to Eisenhower's statement to the Russians this country is willing to agree on arms reductions — may have seemed to many like the big break at last in the disarmament logjam. And it may well be. But any agreement between this country and the Communists on disarmament will probably mean for a long time a very limited kind of disarmament, not a stripping to the bone. Elsenhower has never said how far the United States would be willing to go in disarming. That is something which, of course, would have to be worked out and would depend on how far the Russians want to go. But the balance of power in the world today — the force which keeps the Russians and Red Chinese from kicking over the traces - Is this country's ability to hit aggression at once with planes and nuclear weapons. Must Protect Itself Eisenhower could hardly throw awny that power by offering to disarm the United States to such an extent that it couldn't protect Itself and its friends irom a surprise attack. Before the United States does any disarming at all it would have to be sure the Russians did the same. That means some system of inspection, from the air or otherwise, to make cheating difficult ii not impossible. Harold Stassen. Elsenhower's specialist on disarmament, is talking about it with the Russians in a United Nations subcommittee meeting. So far as is known they have not come even close to agree- The new secretary of the Air Force. Donald A. Quarles, Indicated in a recent speech that tnis country has no intentions any tune soon of abandoning its power «> keep the Russians In check. Respect Was BeasoFX He said it was the Communists' respect for this country's strength which led to their cordiality at Geneva and It is "only by maintaining strength that we can follow up the developments at Geneva with concrete results." He said: "Our responsibility as military men is to maintain for the foreseeable future strength that makes such a process of negotiation and adjustment possible. "Clearly. If our air power and nuclear weapons are to continue to comprise the principal deterrent, to aggression, we must continue! to maintain a qualitative superiority ... ! "We Intend to see that it (thei capability to hit bock, even after, an attnck on the United States) \ shall exist in every foreseeable! tomorrow. In fact, until some other : reliable basis for peace has been nchieved."

A downtown maximum of 94 is expected. If that forecast holds, it will be the first under-100 weather since Aug. 30. Yesterday's 100 maximum made it eight straight days with tops at that level or higher, surpassing the previous record for sustained head of 100-or-higher days In September 1939.
