MONDAY, JUNE 26, 1950 BLTOnSYTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINB HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Soviet Union NotReady For Third World War NEW YORK (AP)—Ls tills Ul<H start of a third world war? ' I Iftft is the question that touches! mi^P American hearts Uxlay as j news pours In ol the fighting in far | Korea, the 'Ireland of the Orient."' I believe the answer is: "Noi" I bclitve that the answer would still be tlie same even though th United States dispatched troops, ships and planes to back up the cease-fire decree of the United Nations. Wliy? My conviction is that Soviet Russia isn't yet ready to plunge the globe into another, international conflict. She stretches across 7.000 vulnerable miles that aren't ready for war. Both her frontiers and her wide open" heartland and unprepared for war—if we can believe what our own military authorities say about her. |jCt her own Russian-trainee forces in Korea sweep through thai time-bound land — as they have been doing. Or lei them fail. Soviet Russia Isn't yet ready to tie hen own dreams of world conquest to the Northern Korean troops. She yet expects to take Korea by the inaction of the western world. Again why? Because at present the Soviet military and political aim Ls to try to take the countries on iU^iast borders by their own in- leUI- revolutions. Greece yesterday, 'Korea today, southeast Asia tomorrow. And where the day after tomorrow? Wherever poverty ami interior political disaffection makes a country ripe for its propaganda. Backed Down in Greece Russia backed down in Greece, Is .still grappling in a sudden bold yrab for Korea, hasn't yet made its main bid for southeast Asia. \v.hy doesn't this mean war rlgh now? For a deep and basic reason inherent to the Russian approach to its own predicament. In iis very strength — its great sprawling, contiguous reach of lane FARM Continued from Page 1 Imports. Stale Criticizes State Depai'trnent spokesmen contended this might wreck the trade agreements program and en- cournge Canada. Mexico and other nations to retaliate against exports by this country. A Senate-House conference yroup agreed to let the Secretary of Agriculture start complaints against farm imports affecting U.S. farm programs. But it retained the Tariff CommLwon's authority to mnke the investigation and recommendations to the President. Magnuson said that by the time the Tariff Commission has acted "all the damage has been done by he imports/' The $2,000,000,000 in price support :ash provided by the bill would be n addition to $4,850,000,000 now in ise by the Commodity Credit Corporation—the Agriculture department agency which carries out the support programs. With mast of its funds now tied, up, the CCG has delayed announcement of new price support levels for this year's crons pending congressional action on the additional funds. —lies its ^reat weakness. It can hit from many angles, and to.keep itself from being approached it has endeavored to surround itself wltl buffer extensions of itself. )bituaries Negro Deaths Pure Iron is • chemical curiosity.

Lemnitzer added: Top Ixnvel Decision "That decision will have to be made on a high level. It's a decision for a group of nations. We won't act unilaterally." Secretary of State Acheson, also at the Hill for talks with the S ate group, said only that he had come to the capitol to discuss the military assistance program—and not the Korean situation. But there was lllMe doubt that both Johnson and Acheson woulr be questioned at length on the Korea, situation and what steps the tern of its being. iU leaders are trying frantically to protect the main body of Russia from possible enemy blows. •Russia the first battle for Berlin when its attempt to starve the German population was countered by the grea,t allied airlift, which flew In food, fuel, and medicine. That was a substitute for direct force—and it worked. The Russian pijjfcaganda faiied. The allies dc- li'Wlcd. Sfill Uiihingcrl It is -my convictiqn that even stronger measures can be taken in Korea than wore employed In Greece—if the allied command decides It is worth the.gamble. Why? Because Russia, hig as -she Js, is still unhinged. Her two greatest; enemies are Japan and Gcr- , many. They lie at opposite frontiers. And weakened as they are, I can't see how Russia will ever go lo war over Korea with these two great historic bulldogs unpacificd— ready to rip her throat from either side. Russia is .still barking .in Korea —just another test of her pressure —and isn't ready to bile. She'll still stand for her bluff being called And I'd call Joe Stalin now, just as Aclolph Hitler should have bee: called when he marched into the Hhtneland. Remember?

Last night the chief executive and 13 of his administration leaders, including Secretary of State Acheson and Secretary of Defense Johnson, conferred for more than three hours at Blair House. _.
