PAGE FOURTEEN BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Acheson Plans Trip to Europe Soon to Arrange Inclusion Of W. Germany in Defense WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 195S By JOHN M. HIGHTOWKR WASHINGTON UV-Secrelaiy of Stale Acheson plans to leave for Europe in about 10 days to complete basic arrangements for bringing Germany into the European defense setup by the end of the month. Acheson is due, to sign on behalf of toe United States a peace coo- tract with the Western German government. Other signers win be the foreign ministers of Great Britain, France and West Germany. Aclieson also plans to be present at Hie signing of a treaty setting up a European defense community including West Germany. The latest expression of the firm resolve of the Western nations to go through with these plans as nearly on schedule as possible wns set forth last night In a note to Russia. Notes Art Identical The American note, iclenlificnl with notes sent by Britain and Prance, declared that this government will "not be deflected" from the policy of creating true unity among the European nations because this "represents Hie true path of peace." At the same time the United States and the other Western Powers expressed readiness to open negotiations with the Soviet Union on the unification of Eastern and Western Germany provided there Is first a clear understanding upon the fundamental problems to lie examined. Investigation Askeit The first problem to be tackled, the Western Powers said, is that of investigating political conditions necessary for holding free elections. This would be tbe first step toward establishing nn all-German government which could then negotiate a German peace treaty, had declared that Ibe study of In previous exchanges Russia polidcal conditions should be made by a commission created by the four big powers which occupy Germany. The Western governments rejected this in favor of turning the job over to n United Nation- 1 ; commission already set up for that purpose. Recognizing, however, that the Russians wero unwilling to use tile U.N. eroup, the Western Powers offered as a compromise last night "to consider any other practical nnd precise prnpopals for im impartial commission of investigation which the Soviet government may wish to put forward." Tlie idea Is thai such a group could be established through the use of representatives of non-occupying nations. American officials said they had in mind such countries RS Iceland, The Netherlands, Brazil and Poland. The Western Powers proposed that, as soon as such a commission hud reported on the political conditions throughout Germany, the occupation powers could then meet and consider: 1. "The holding of free elections throughout Germany, including the creation where necessary ol the appropriate conditions." 2. "The assurances to be given by the Jour powers that the all- German government, formed as Club Holds City's First Sidewalk Art Show RALEIGH, N. C.
