THTJKSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1954 BLYTOEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACE FIVB Nasser Regime Declares Egypt Stands with West But Says Defense Pact Now Would Let Reds Stir Up Arabs By ROBERT HEWETT CAIRO, Egypt iff) — Premier Gamal Abdel Nasser's military government declared today that "Egypt stands in every respect with the West" but that "a defense pact with the Western Powers now would only provide the Communists with fuel to stir up "the still suspicious minds of the Arabs." A communique from the ruling Revolution Council that deposed King Farouk two years ago said it realized the United States and Britain would never invade the Arab world and added: "It's (Egypt's) culture, trade and economic life is linked to. the West. Ideologically Egypt is outspokenly against communism. Militarily Egypt considers that the only possible global danger to the Middle East is an invasion from Russia." The communique was issued to foreign correspondents as a "background paper." Apparently it was aimed at clarifying Egypt's foreign policy, which is undergoing a major swing since the British agreement on the evacuation of the Suez Canal zone and the opening of talks for American economic assistance. The statement pointed out the traditional fears among Egyptians and Arabs of any Western ties as a result of the past British occupation of the Middle East and declared that any defense pact at the present time with the West would "defeat its purpose." The fanatical Moslem Brotherhood, the underground Communists and a few old-line political leaders have been agitating against the government for endorsing the British-Egyptian Suez agreement. That pact "will give Britain the right to return to the Suez bases within the next seven years if Turkey or any Arab state is attacked. Under the agreem nt all British troops •will leave the zone within 20 months after the signing of the treaty, which is expected to be completed this month.

Act jointly and individually against any force that would attempt to undermine or destroy the sovereignty, territorial integrity or freedom of Southeast Asian governments. ' A Philippines spokesman said his government hopes to have these principles, closely resembling the Atlantic Charter, incorporated in the preamble or text of a nine-point treaty draft now before working committees. If this is rejected, he aid, the Philippines will ask the eight member nations to adopt the principles as a separate resolution when the foreign ministers convene Monday. The Philippines also indicated it will carry to the foreign ministers its fight for a Southeast Asian collective security pact calling for immediate retaliation if one member is attacked. 163V 4 1551/4 A T and T ............... 171 1-4 Amer Tobacco ........... 58 5-8 Anaconda Copper ......... 38 1-8 Beth Steel ..' .............. 73 7-8 Chrysler ................. 63 5-8 Coca-Cola ............... 115 Gen Electric . . . ..... ...... 42 3-4 Gen Motors .............. 79 5-8 Montgomery Ward . ...... 73 7-8 N Y Central ............ ... 197-8 Int Harvester ....... ...... 32 3-8 Republic Steel . ........... 60 3-8 .................. 32 3-8 44 7-8 17 1-2 Radio Socony Vacuum Studebaker Standard of N J „... 92 Texas Corp 72 1-4 Sears 68 U S Steel 52 Sou Pac 431-2!

French Premier Mendes- France would like some kind of solution which would amount to an ED Csubstitute or "Little NATO" arrangement, or possibly second- class status for West Germany in the full NATO organization. American and British officials feel, however, that in letting EDC die, Mendes-France lost his last opportunity to impose any such longtime restraint upon Germany's future position and beh^'ior. 3. Washington has acted with deliberate slowness in some respects to encourage the European nations, particularly France, to come up with new ideas for dealing with the aftermath of EDC's defeat. They are hoping that some line of action will develop clearly in Europe within the next two weeks.

Details of the British suggestion, which followed the French Parliament's vote killing the six-nation European army plan, were expected to be transmitted today by British Ambassador Sir Gladwyn Jebb to Premier Pierre Mendes-France. The European army would have permitted rearmament of Germany within a supranational framework. The job of the conference would be to find some other way of putting Germans in uniform for the defense of the West. bulls 11.50-13.00; canner and cutter bulls 8.50-11.00; good and choice vealers 17.00-20.00; few choice and Prime 21.00-22.00; commercial and low good 13.00-16.00; cull and utility 7.00-11.00. iwhat personal views of him are j WASHINGTON 'JRi — Sen.

On each of the first two days of the hearing, McCarthy unsuccessfully demanded that the committee direct that Sen. Johnson, its vice chairman, say whether he had been correctly quoted'by the Denver Post last March as saying that all Senate Democratic leaders "loathe" McCarthy. Johnson has said at ths hearings that he did not say he personally loathed McCarthy, but beyond that he has declined comment on the Denver Post interview. He has said,- however, that if he did not feel he could weigh the censure charges impartially he would not be participating in the hearings. Watkins, in ruling that the committee would not consider the matter, said the Constitution made the Senate the judge of its own members. In any disciplinary move against a member, he said, there was no way a disqualified because of prejudice against, of prejudice for. the member who was in effect brought to trial. McCarthy's lawyer wired the Denver Post last night asking it to confirm or deny the correctness of those quotes attributed to Johnson. McCarthy said a telegram had been received from Robert W. Lucas, editorial page editor of the Post saying simply "confirmed." Asked during the filmed interview whether he intended to challenge Johnson's place on the committee, McCarthy replied that he had "no plans/' that he was leaving any decision up "to my law- ;r." McCarthy said, however, that he would like to have Johnson say if the ost were "telling the truth." McCarthy disputed the statement attributed to Johnson in the Denver Post story — and which Johnson hasn't denied—that Senate Democratic leaders "Ipjathe" McCarthy. He said he regarded Sen. Pat McCarran (D-Nev) as a Democrat- c leader and "a good friend of mine." in Sussex. Bombs Destroyed Home She has lived tneie since her home in London was destroyed by German bombs during the war. The cottage (which is not a cottage at all, but what we would call a rather large country home), was once used by pirates for smuggling stolen goods into the country. The chimneys are exceptionally large and ideally suited for storing large quantities of merchandise confiscated on the high seas. Mrs. Stephan. who has conducted a music studio here since 1939. has long since become a naturalized citizen and decided upon the United States as her permanent home. She first left England for America in 1913. after having studied music under her future husband. Shortly afterward. Professor Stephan followed her and they were married in Winnipeg, Canada. There he became head of ihe Eisenhower's Aug. 23 review of the 1954 Congress. "Yet where coldness and action have been required," Gore continued, "we have had weakness, timidity and vacillation; where unity ana clarity were indicated, the pattern has been one of discord i and confusion. | '"When all is sa!d. and done, the plain fact is we are drifting—just j d r i f t i n g — both at home and abroad." Gore said that In the past two years the nation's military strength has been cut. it has suffered diplomatic defeats, and that on the question of over-all national security "the Republican stewardship has been sadly lacking." Gore questionec Eisenhower's comment that the administration had a "batting average" of .430 in Congress this year, saying: "For one thing, lie 'ailed to account for all his times at bat. For another thing, he. listed several 'foul balls' as 'clean hits.'

He said that when Red China's leaders discussed Formosa, they dropped their talk of peace. He said he had found nobody in Red China who advocated a peaceful settlement of the Formosa question — unless it be a peaceful surrender by Chiang Kai-shek's forces. He said he did not specifically Jake up the question of American prisoners in China, but that in * general discussion he had argued that it was a mistake to hold people against their will.

Mrs. Stephan remained in England until 1936 when she returned to the United States and established a music studio in Greenville. Miss. Three years later she moved to Blytheville. Both Mrs. Leahy were Stephan and Mrs. born and raised in London, though they didn't know each other until Mrs. Leahy met Mrs. Stephen's brother in 1919, shortly after his return from World' War I. They met in the office of an importing company where both worked, and were married in 1925. Though this visit brought the sisters-in-law together for the first time in 18 years — since 1936 when Mrs. Stephan returned to this country — both vowed that there would be more trips across the Atlantic, either one way or the other.
