MONDAY, JANUARY SO, 1956 RT.YTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Reds Tarn Propaganda Tables With Friendship Treaty Offer By JAMES MAELOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — The Russians' treaty of friendship offer to the United States — rejected by President Eisenhower — is a pretty clear propaganda try at turning the tables. The Russians suffered psychological and propaganda damage when they rejected Eisenhower's sensational "open skies" proposal. It took them six months to think of an equally dramatic way to get even Eisenhower replied that If the | with the word no but their answers Russians really want peace, they At Geneva In July Eisenhower suggested the United States and Russia agree to aerial inspection of each other's countries as a necessary step toward disarmament and protection against surprise attack by either. With this proposal Elsenhower put the United .StatesMn the position of taking the initiative for peace. World reaction was good. Men everywhere could visualize it: airplanes taking pictures from the sky. The proposal had the which propagandists must dream about: a simple idea easily grasped. And It was bold. Upon examination It was not so simple. Not Clear It has never been clear whether Eisenhower's plan had been carefully thought out or was pulled from his hat on the spur of the moment. And he did not say whether the demand Included the demand included '...-. America's overseas bases, which the Russians might want to watch more thoroughly than anything inside this country. And It Bill! is not known whether Congress ever would have approved It, since Eisenhower's plan would let Russian planes poke •round Inside this country. But there was never any need to get Into a deep examination. The Russians had a choice, to be^rnade fairly fast, of saying yes or no. It was almost certain they would say no, since their whole regime Is based on concealment. They aaid no. The no did not make them look good. Deeds Needed Then last Week the Russians came up with the friendship treaty plan, knowing Elsenhower could not go . for It. It would, from the words used by Premier Bulganin, force the United States Into agreeing to an endless Russian grip on the satellites; drive a wedge between the United States and Its allies; and create an Illusion of peace when there was no peace. can prove it by deeds, such as the unification of Germany and the freeing of the satellites. The Russians can get propaganda mileage out of Eisenhower's no when they broadcast their offer and his rejection. The millions who can't read or who never see a Western paper giving Eisenhower's reasons will be told only that the President refused the offer of a treaty of friendship. ' —Eistiilhuwer and Bulganin no doubt were highly conscious of what world reaction would be— Eisenhower's aerial Inspection ana Bulganin's treaty of friendship. Neither rejected the other's offer were nevertheles Money Found In Church Booth CLEVELAND l.fl — It was only money, but whoever put it there must have had a reason.
