WBONBSDAY, OCTOBER 12, 19S5 BLTTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGI THJUE1 Truman Writes of Potsdam Conference in His Memoirs liy Kll CKEAGI1 WASHINGTON (AP) — "You never saw such pig-headed people as are the Russians. I hope I never have to hold another conference with them — but, of course, I will." The year was 1945. The place was Potsdam, in the heart of conquered Germany. The writer, addressing himself to his mother and sister, was Harry S. Truman, then new as president of the United States. He was thoroughly fed up with his first Big Three conference and wanted to go home. DulUl Departure S«r WASHINGTON (/P)—Secretary of State Dulles will leave by plane Oct. 32 Tor Paris on the first leg as his trip to Geneva lor the Big Four foreign ministers meeting. He will engage in Atlantic Pact discussions and conferences in Paris with foreign ministers of Britain nd Prance before proceeding to Geneva. Truman's "Dear Muma and Mary" teller Is included m the latest installment of his memoirs, published in Life magazine. The former president makes these main points about his Potsdam talks with Soviet Premier Stalin and Britain's 'Winston Churchill and Clement Attlee, who replaced Churchill as prime minister in mideonference: To Enter War 1. Til* only secret agreement reached was a pledge by Stalin that the Russians soon would enter the war against Japan. They had promised to do so earlier that year at Yalta and Truman says American military leaders were "most anxious" to have them carry out their promise. 2. Russia wanted a formal, public invitation from the Pacific Allies to join the war but Truman wouldn't agree. He calls the Soviet bid "a cynical diplomatic move" to claim credit for winning the Japanese war, and declares: -i l was not willing to let Russia reap the fruits of n lone; and bitter and gallant effort in which she had no part." 3. The "most bitter" debate of the conference came over the stillj unresolved question of Russia's! satellite countries. Truman relates Churchill complained of Russia's building: an "iron fence" around its puppet states, and that Stalin snapped back: "All fairy tales." 4. Stalin wanted the shape of the postwar world determined solely by the Soviet Union, Britain and the United States, while Truman insisted all nations be given a voice through the then-forming U.N. 5. The Soviet leader wanted Germany stripped of most industry. arguing that "Germany was ii dangerous business rival...unless we we kept her on her knees." This was the line of argument then being advanced by Henry Morgcn- thnu Jr.,. whose resignation as secretary of the Treasury Truman accepted shortly before leaving for Potsdam. In tin earlier installment , of his memoirs Truman told of turning; thumbs down on the Mor- genthnu plan which contemplated reducing Germany to an agricultural state. On the personal level Truman found Stalin polite and likable, with a "wry humor," but determined to chance tho subject any mite anybody else mentioned 'an instance "where the Russians had stolen the coffin and disposed of the body." Truirmn sais he became so fed up with "beating- around the bush." as he puts H, by both the British and the Russians that he threatened at one time to walk out of the confeaence. He says Stalin's reaction was to laugh and say he'd like to go home too.
