Y. (AP) — Secretary of State John Foster Dulles today declared the world may be entering a decade of peaceful change which will spell the end of the cold W8r ' In a general policy declaration before the U. N. General Assembly he stated that the international atmosphere had improved substantially since the 1954 assembly session and 'that there was a good chance for constructive decisions during the commg months. He expressed the belief that the* situation was ripe lor a solution' of the German unification problem and that European security was •now-better than at any time in history. The situation In the Par East, he said, also was following a "favorable trend" — thanks to the efforts of the U. N. and other governments and individuals to settle differences between Red China and the United States. "The will of the world community may have operated to avert another war, the scope ol which could not surely be limited," Dulles said. Asked Endorsement He appealed to the Assembly to endorse president Eisenhower's proposal for an exchange of military' blueprints between the United States and Russia and for aerial Inspection on a mutual basis. This, he said, would provide a I basis for a solid advance toward the goal of world arms reduction. Dulles spoke of the ten years of cold war conflict in which the world was beset by limited wars, • subversion, arms races and Inflexible attitudes. "That phase may now be ending," he said. "I believe that all four of the heads of government, who were at Geneva, wanted that result nnd that each contributed to it. In consequence, a new spirit does indeed prevail, with greater flexibility and less brittleness In international relations." "All Must Gain" He declined to say which country had gained most at Geneva, but declared that if the improved atmosphere is to be permanent all must gain. "The summit meetine, if it is to be historic. rather than episodic." he said, "must usher In an era of peaceful change." He said this era should be one in Which governments would rc- • nounce the use of war and subversion, accept orderly evoluttonj toward their goals and develop friendly economic intercourse amontr themselves. "Let us strive together." he said, "that the next decade shall be known as the healing decade of true peace."

Opening Bundestag debate on his agreement to open such formal relations with East Germany's sponsor, the Soviet Union, auer stressed his government's adamant refusal to acknowledge the legitimacy "of the East German regime. The regime was given sovereignty by the -Russians ii negotiations in Moscow this week. Adenauer declared the East regime had the support of no more lhan 10 per cent of the 18 million East Germans. Therefore, he added, it had no right to speak for Germany. Slowly and firmly, Ad- enaur added: "Unfriendly Act" "If a third state were to establish diplomatic relations with the East German r egime we would regard it as an unfriendly act." Tne House applauded. The East German government is recognized only by the Soviet Union and its satellites. Adenauer was reporting to Parliament on his negotiations with Russian leaders in Moscow which led to an agreement to establish diplomatic relations between Bonn and Moscow. The government is asking Parliament to approve this agreement. An overwhelming favorable vote is certain. Adenauer explained the NATO nations had already acknowledged that only the Bonn government was entitled to speak on behalf of all Germany.
