Far Eastern policies apparently was a reference to Britain'r recognition of Red China and her desire to do business with It while the United States does not recognize Peiping. . The key sentence about the Far East was: Firmly United "We are firmly united in our purpose: to deXer and prevent aggressive expansion by force or subversion, and to assist the free nations of the area in their self! defense and in maintaining domestic stability and welfare." Officials said the . warning one "aggressive expansion" applies to the Formosa area as well as others around Communist China. Eisenhower and Eden pledgee continuing support for two anti- Communist alliances: the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization anc the Baghdad Pact in the Middle East. The United States is not a party to the latter, which is bitterly resented by some Arab countries The two leaders pledged to support actions toward Western European unity "both political anc economic." They macie a new cal for "the reunification of Germam in freedom." Back West Germany Taking a slap at the Communist East German regime, they declared the West German government is "alone entitled to speak' for the German people in work affairs. The formal policy declaration which the two men issued was designed as an instrument for use in the battle with Russia for public opinion. The document made two basic points. It asserted that the record of the Western Powers is one of respect for "the basic right of peoples io governments of then- own choice. " By contrast, it said, th rcord of the Soviet system, with a concept of man as a servant of "a state machine," is one 01 enslavement of millions of people. .ontn old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert McMiller, died of pneumonia in her home at 1024 S. 21st St., ?.t three o'clock yesterday afternoon.
