PACK EIGHT B1ATHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY. OCTOBER U. Geneva Forecast; ftough ond toygh- Moscow in Stronger Spot To Frustrate Allied Plans By LEON DENXKN' NBA Stuff Correspondent The widely-hailed "spirit of Geneva," though little more than two months old, is already beginning to fade and show serious signs of strain, according to a world-wide survey of critical areas. Western diplomats forc's-i-c the Big Four Foreipr. Ministers' conference scheduled to open in Geneva on Oci. 27 as a rough and touyh affair — with Moscow now .in a stronger position to frustrate* Allied peace pl:ins for Europe and Asia. Said a high-ranking West Gorman official: "The free world gained, a moral victory at the Geneva summit meeting — but the Muscovit/s brought home tlie diplomatic bacon." Here is how the political siui.iuon shapes up in Europe, Asia ami in the Arab world since Geneva: WESTERN' EUROPE: NATO leaders are increasingly worried about the "spirit of relaxation in the North Atlantic nlliaiu:e. Such fears were recently voiced' in Paris by Lord Isinay, Gene nil Secretary of NATO, and Gen. Alfred Griiemher. U. S. chief of NATO's armed forces in an informal talk with U. S. visitors. Gruenther was represented as feeling- so discouraged that hp wondered what his task remained. Leading NATO allies — lulled by Moscow's smiles and vodka toasts — show an alarming intent to slash defense plans. In Britain, Prime Minuter Anthony Eden is. under strong Labor- He __ and even Conservative — pressure to cut draft service for British youths from 24 to 18 months. hi France, neutralism is again the dominant issue. Few Frenchmen now feel that their security is assured by NATO. The fact that some NATO members followed Moscow's lead in the United Nations and voted against France on the Algerian question is t seen by them as further evidence of I the weakness of the North Atlantic alliance. The French are, of course, aware that much of the trouble In North Africa is fomented by Red agents. Thus, the demund j for "an agreement" with the j Kremlin is reviving:. j The French recently rejected :i i U. S. proposal to develop a naval | base In North Africa — to extend [ the striking power of the Sixth i Fleet — even though the Pentagon j offered to pay all costs. Undoubtedly the most significant diplomatic victory gained by UK-Russians since the Genera summit conference was in West Germany.

The Kremlin will now be, able to deal directly with West Germany — as well as with the Fast German puppet regime — instead of negotiating with the West on German unity. The Reds are also in a stronger position to PI-PAS for a united Germany aloiif; Communist, lines—just ji.s they arc pressing for a "united China." "uniied Korea" mid "uuit- ed Imio-Chmn." also along Communist lines, . Said the West German diplomat quoted earlier in this .'survey; "Af- tor Geneva there was little Adenauer could do but make the best possible bargain with the Russians."

There is bitterness in Greece over Cyprus. Greek leaders charge that Britain is even working hand- in-hand with Cyprus Communists in an effort to prevent the predominantly Greek island from joining the mother country. Chiefs of EDA, Greece's outlawed Communist Party, recently issued open invitations to prominent politicians to visit Russia. When Georges Pupan- dreu, anti-Communist Social Democratic leader, declined the Invitation he was accused by the Reds of "vlolatinff the spirit of.. Geneva," They hinted darkly that if Greece does not, come lo terms with Russia she will gain Soviet enmity and U. S. aid.

But they are even more determined to; gain their ends: 1. Immediate possession of Formosa and the withdrawal of the 7th Flee: from the Formosa Straii. 2. U. S. recognition o! Mao Tse- lung's Reel regime. 3. A place for Communist, Chin?, in the United Nalions. . 4. Eventual domination of all Asia.

John Eliot, D.D., in l'(i(i3. Dr. Eliot devised ihe alphabet, as the tribe had none, and then taught the Indians how to read il. Today, because the tribe's traditions and dialect in the Algonquin tongue are forgotten, ncibody can decipher Dr. Eliot's Bible.
