TWBLITO BLTTHEVTLLB (AMLT COURIER NEW* TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1954 At French Plan For European Defense LONDON (AP) — France's Western Allies took a long, cautious look today at her new plan-to rearm West Germany. Two leading British newspapers termed it at least a starting point for the nine-power talks opening in London next week. Commodity And Stock Markets— There was no immediate official reaction to the proposals, outlined by French Premier Pierre Mendes- France yesterday in a speech before the European Consultative Assembly at.'-Strasbourg. They included tieing West Germany in a tight European alliance that would limit, the fighting forces of all member states and control their arms production. In Washington, a State Department spokesman said the French plan is being studied but no com- inerit would be made immediately. • A few hours later the United States formally accepted Britain's invitation to attend the Sept. 28 London talks, called to thresh out a way to enlist West Germans in Western:- defense. ChurcJiai Calls Cabinet Prime Minister Winston Churchill called his cabinet to .its regular weekly session, today. The discussion was expected to center around Mendes-France's plan and arrangements for the nine-power conference. The French memorandum to interested gox-ernments giving full details of Mendes-France's proposals was -still secret. The first British comment appeared in the influential, independent Times and the Conservative Daily Telegraph. Both newspapers said the French Premier had furnished at least the basis for possible agreement. But both , expressed misgivings as to the extent of British military commitments in Europe France might demand as the price for consenting to German rearmament. "The Times also questioned whether: Britain would accept the loss of national sovereignty apparently-inherent in the proposals to control the size of armed forces and: : armament production. The French Piany, put forward as a substitute for the defunct European Defense Community (EDO, is similar in many respects to proposals advocated recently by Brit- "ish Foreign ecretary Anthony Eden. Both call for an expansion of the five-nation Brussels pact into an alliance of at least Britain, West Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Instead of a common army as the EDC plan proposed, members of the pact would rush immediately to the defense of any j Dec other partner attacked.

Mendes-France would do this through the enlarged Brussels group; Eden proposes that the 14- nation North Atlantic alliance set the limits: ' • Mendes-France also wants to delay West Germany's participation in NATO. Germany, supported by Britain and the United States, is pressing hard to get into NATO right away. Mendes-France has been shying away from this, apparently fearing the French Assembly would turn the idea down as it did EDC. If the European alliance he .proposes is formed, he said, France would be less hostile to Germany's entry into NATO. The French plan calls for the formation of an international exec- 266^ 2663/4 269 269% 271% 272 273 273 26834 271 272 152% 15614 Chicago Corn 153% 156% Chicago Wheat Dec ... 218% 217y, Mch ... 220% 221 ~ 269 271% 272J/2 152% 156% l h 218% 2193/4 220 1 , 152 155 7 / 8 New York Stocks (12:45 quotations) A T and T 170 7- Amer Tobacco 66 7- Anaconda Copper 41 1- Beth Steel 777.

Once election of officers is out of the way, Dulles is expected to open the fortnight of policy speeches from delegation leaders with an exposition of U.S. policy Thursday. Delegates looked for him to comment at length on President Eisenhower's plan to set up a peace pool of atomic power, despite Soviet objection to it. Th e expiring eighth Assembly, ir. recess since last December, was closed out with brief formality yesterday by its president, Mrs. Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit. Sister of India's Prime Minister Nehru, she was the first woman elected to head a U.N. Assembly. Wearing an amethyst colored sari, she rushed the final ceremony through in less than five minutes. She told the delegates she would hold off her review of the eighth Assembly's work until she took the chair today, to serve until election of her successor. The ninth Assembly opening today found many high ranking delegates absent, remaining in Europe for the London conference next week on German sovereignty and rearament. Dulles also plans to attend it. H-BOMB (Continued from Page M Oppenheimer over the years, regarding both the hydrogen bomb and the strategic air concept had aroused the genuine concern of a small handful of officials in Washington." No Comment In Princeton, N.J., Oppenheimer had no comment, saying he hadn'1 seen the book. The book, soon to be published by David McKay Co. Inc. of New York, says there is no evidence that Dr. Oppenheimer took "overt action" to persuade scientists at the government's Los Alamos weapons labroatory "to strike against the President's decision' but that "there seems to be no question that his opposition .. . was sufficient to produce a widespread reaction." Shepley and Blair claim that for four years the United States lagged behind the Soviet Union in developing an H-bomb and that Oppenheimer, together with a number of other leading atomic scientists, were mostly to blame. Russia finally set off a droppable hydrogen weapon on Aug. 12, 1953—six months before this coundry did. "It was an accident bordering almost on the miraculous," the authors say, that Dr. Edward Teller was working in this country's atomic program "where he could pit both his knowledge and his determination against Dr. Oppenheimer." The book says most of the H- bomb work eventually was done at Los Alamos,, but only under the goad of Teller's "rival" laboratory at Livermore, Calif. Truman and the Air Force both ome in for criticism by the au;hors lor not pushing ahead with El-bomb development as soon as Russia had exploded its first atomic weapon in August 1949. Of Oppenhcimer's position the H-bomb question, "-he authors say: "The plain fact was that on a question of overriding importance Dr. Oppenheimer was wrong . . . xagically and fightfully wrong. .. It is not criminal to be wrong about" the weapons of the atomic age, only fatal."

"Blytheville is basically a friendly town. We must keep -and enlarge our spirit of friendliness along with the physical and economic aspects of our community, if we are to continue to make the city in which we make our homes the most desirable one possible for our families. "During 'Get Acquainted' week, the people of the community can show their interest in one another by participating- fullyj in the opportunities accorded them to make new acquaintances and renew old ones.
