TRH>AT, JULY 14, MM •LI'HIEVILLE (ARK.V COTJRTER KEWS PACTBLBT1 W. Europe Reacts To U. S. Setbacks: 'Give Them Time' ^LONDON. July 14. (/P)—Prom Scandinavia to the -Mediterranean, noH^mmunlst Western European! reacted with the same phrase today to American set-backs In Korea. It was "give them time." Outside those circles obedient to Moscow, the Jeeling among bolh 55 and public was that, despite heavy odds, the American Gl's would mil out of the hole. There were, however, some doubts' ami some criticisms. In Norway and Finland, both neighbors of Russia, the man in the street wondered out loud whether the needed reinforcements of men and materiel would be too little and 00 late. Some Finns found the slate of U.S. preparedness in the Pacific chilling eye-opener. They were pressed with the apparent military ability ol the north Koreans. Oddt Underscored Everywhere, in conversation and In the press, the fact most underscored was the enormity of the odds against which the Americans were fighting. Almost the only sharp non-Communist criticism of America's Korean effort came from Rome's moderate, pro-government II Momenta "The fact alone that America has to half mobilize to oppose a semi- barbarian state, a country that is the last (least powerful) of the So- vie^^tellltes, will mean for Amer- IcaB^loss of prestige which a late anrppainfully secured victory' wil not be able to regain," it wrote. During the past five years, I Mornento went on,-while Presiden Truman and his various secretaries ;of state were "deafening the world ample now set in the distant land of the morning calm by those ill- rained, ill - equipped American boys." LUXORA NEWS By Mr*. G. C. Driver India Sends Notes to U.S. And Russia WASHINGTON, July M. (AD— Both the United States and Russia received notes yesterday from Prime Minister Nehru of India. There was no announcement of the contents but there was speculation here that they mij>ht include a proposal for attaining peace in Korea. The New York Times in a dispatch from Washington quoted diplomatic circles as saying that India was not offering to mediate in _the Korean war but,was merely urging th United States and Soviet Russia to keep the Korean war from spreading. Nehru recently expressed his willingness to serve as a mediator with speeches and statements overflowing with bootitfuUiess," Russia .was building tanks. Hits Importance II Momento's conservative com- etitor, II Tempo, which also sports the Christian Democrat gov- mment, took another view: "Don't be Impatient," it said. 'The Communists have enjoyed all he advantages of aggression In- :luding surprise and even using 0-ton Soviet tanks, in the end we shall see MacArthur's army coming beck." The non-communist press in 'ranee, while sympathizing with he Americans, has made little comment. The conservative Le aonde saw In the battle the ques- km of the prestige ot two flags— the American and that of the United Nations. The London Daily Express warned that the news irom Korea Blight continue bad for another 90 lays but predicted eventual victory. 'Korea U no Dunkerque," it de- Tt U a pitched battle be- a handful of ill-equipped American troops, some of them bat- 3e-green, and a well-trained, numerically suptriorj aggressor." ^. The whole"frre" worTd,"' ft" added ~ _Fill benefit from America's "new, jjrim alertness." i> "Our Flfht, Too" fl'Another leading London newspaper, the liberal News Chronicle, nrned "this to our fight too." . * West German editorials empha- Uzed that the Americans were outnumbered and outgunned. Both press and public in the Netherlands took a wait and see attitude, but confidence was express- lid in the eventual success of Amer- Inn arms. 'In traditionally neutral Sweden, Ale liberal Daily Aftonbladet said: ~. "The five letters 'Korea' may one fey symbolize the choice of all free peoples: r £- "To surrender everything that •lakes life worth living and submit > the basest, most cruel tyranny in tl»orld history—or to follow tht ex- the conflict between North and South Koreans. Meanwhile, in Stockholm, Sweden, Premier Einar Gerhardsen of Norway last night called on the Soviet Union to help stop the Korean lighting and induce the North Korean forces to withdraw behind the 36th parallel. Gerhardsen, addressing an International Socialist-Youth Conference, ridiculed the CominuriLst- sponsored "Stockholm appeal" to ban the atom bomb. He urged the 2O.OOO attending the meeting to Issue another sort of "Stockholm appeal" for peace. Mrs. T. D.

EDSON Continued from Page a )y borrowing, further increasing of lie national debt, revision of the ax bill might have to be considered. One wny to do that would be o leave the law the way 11 is, ivithnut reducing excise taxes on .uxury goods. Still greater will be the effects on raw materials supplies. There arc few real shortages of materials now. Hut supplies of some forms of metal products and building ma teriuLs are. extremely tight.
