THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2T, 1955 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAOE MINI Lackof AccompHskmentatGendya Should Corneas Surprise to No One By JAMES MABI.OW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — For about three weeks, beginning today, the Big Four foreign ministers will meet in Geneva, talk behind closed doors, issue some public statements perhaps, and probably agree on very little. A great lack of accomplishment at Geneva should be no surprise. A look at just one o( the problems the ministers intend to discuss—unification of West and East Germany—is enough to show why Russia and the West, now separated by an absolute gulf on that subject, are likely to remain apart. For years, by various devices vhich included propaganda, Russia fought the efforts of the United I States to get West Germany rearmed and into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The Russian tactics were rough and tough. Suddenly this year they switched to a soft line. The switch came only after West Germany was finally admitted to NATO There were other reasons for the switch besides the German question. May Win Point But it seems obvious Uie Russians, having failed to keep Wes:! Germany out of NATO by bluster.! could see that by a change in tac-! tic-; they might still win their point, perhaps a double point; They migh'. if they played it shrewdly enough not only get West Germany out of NATO but also even wreck NATO itself by softening up the other Western countries' fear of Russia. In this game the Russians have ..n ace in the hole. The West Germans, and the East Germans who are under Communist control, want to be united. The Russians have put a price tag on unification: the Germans cannot be united so long as West Germany remains in NATO. But the United States and the other Western allies want Germany united too. They have asked the Russians to let the East and West Germans unite by electing their own government in free elections. Would Vote for Went All the reports from Europe Indicate that if the elections were held now the East and West Germans would .vote for a government like that of West Germany's Chancellor Adenauer, who is a firm friend of the West. The United States would hardly be urging the unification of Ger- many if it did not feel the results would be favoraoie to the West. Since this is all obvious enough to the Russians, they have plenty block unification unless, or until, urge for unification or division of they can be sure a united Germany is out of the Western alliance and either neutral or teamed up with them. The Russians can afford to stall. Chancellor Adenauer is old and sick. He may have to disappear from the picture sooi because of age or health or death. When he goes, it Is not at all certain what course his successor will take. of reason I'rom their standpoint to The West Germans—through the feeling about continuing in .the Western alliance — might be willing to make rar greater concessions to the Russians than Adenauer's government seems willing to make.
