* Aft TWO BLITHEVILLB (AMC.)' OOOTHEIl THURSDAY, JANUARY It ,1|M Du//es Is Following Old Truman Line in Handling Foreign Policy By JAMES MARLOW AMeclated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — A few dates and statements out of the life of Secretary of State offer some insights into his ideas about foreign policy and his handling of it. la April 1W2, utter watching the Trwnan administration for seven y**r* devise various means for blocking Soviet expansion — such u foreign aid and military alliance* — Dulles said: The United States was too much on t*» "defensive" when it should have taken -the initiative; it was "dancing to whatever tune" the Russians played; and "most of our actions have been reactions to Soviet Communist actions." Since he became secretary of state in 1M1 he has followed in a general way the broad policies of former President Truman: a continuance of foreign aid and even more military aid. It is perhaps -HHHKilv '«.*>. Mu une iu <uUioiit And President Eisenhower — aU though there has bten congressional opposition to continuing and prolonging foreign aid — said in his Jan. 5 State of the Union message his administration wanted to set up a 10-year foreign aid program. Then yesterday Dulles, with Eisenhower's approval, called on the nation to "wake up" to all the implications facing this country in its struggle to keei the backward countries from Russia by economic help. It wasn't the call so much that was unusual as the way in which it was made. • Dulles and his State Department have responsibility for making foreign policy. But Dulles said he and Eisenhower had approved a statement prepared by the American delegation to the United Nations. This statement informed .the country the Russians have shifted their tactics and that defeat in competing with them in K helping underdeveloped countries ecbnom-1 N«w Argentine Leader Moving Boldly to Lick Economic Problems BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (*The rebel leaders who ousted dictator Juan D. Peron in a bold revolt ar« moving just as boldly to whip their economic problems'. The future of Maj. Gen. Pedro Eugenio Aramburo's provisional government may hang on the outcome. The government's. latest idea is a novel minimum wage program, aimed mainly at jacking up wages to meet climbing living costs. Prices are going up because of earlier maneuvers by the men who ically might cost this country the cold war. Why Dulles had not long before this called on the country to "wake up" or why the warning had to be thought up by the U.N. delegation instead of the State Department isn't clear. succeeded Peron. They freed the peso to drop to Its true level. And they removed, or adjusted upward, price controls on many consumer items. The goal, they say, Is to free this nation's economy after 10 years of Feronista controls. But won't rising prices, plus a wholesale pay hike, launch galloping inflation? The rebel leaders hope not. They trust increased .production resulting from the shot of freedom will stabilize prices after this initial readjustment. Argentine wages , now vary according to type of work and what various unions have been able to negotiate. Most workers are organized. The new program will: 1. Decree a minimum wage designed to give everyone a raise. But the minimum will vary by regions. Where living costs are lower, Counterfeit Labor Is Cheap TOKYO (* — Police weren't too surprised when they discovered a number of counterfeit ,1,000-yen iis worth JZ.17. But they were amazed to find nine counterfeit 50-yen coins this week in Kyushu. The coin is worth 14 cents. "This coin is well made," a police spokesman said. "I hadn't realized labor is so cheap in Japan." the minimum wage will be lower — and vice versa. 3. Order industries which made especially fat profits in the past year to pay salaries higher than the minimum decreed for their regions. The government is also considering including in the program a bonus for more efficient workers.
