FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1950 (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Russia and West Still Far Apart OnDisarmament By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — The possibility of world disarmament has been given a lot of publicity since July's summit meeting when President Eisenhower made his sensational "open skies" proposal. On its face, it may have seemed simple. limited way. They suggested international inspectors be stationed only at airfields, railheads and harbors. That left a lot oi territory uninspected. The United States wouldn't bus. July at Geneva, Eisenhower offered his suggested. After many weeks the Russians insisted they wanted Eisenhower to accept their idea of limited ground inspectors. No Answer Eisenhower replied in effect: "All right, if it'll rrmke you hnppy, I'll agree on limited inspection But I want you to agree on the aerial inspection too. How about it?" So far—no answer from the Russians- But there is a point whr't the Russians certainly would want cleared up which this country hasn't cleared up at all. The President had spoken of aerial inspection only over each other's territory. He didn't say anything about letting the Russians inspect American overseas bases inside countries friendly to this country. Yet it is from those bases the United States would hit Russia if the Soviets tried to attack. Russian Foreign Minister Molotov at Geneva yesterday pointedly said the Soviet Union has liquidated "all its military bases on foreign soil"—in Finland and Manchuria. Liquidation of the Americ, overseas bases is one of the things The President suggested the United States and Russia exchange complete blue prints on heir military establishments. Then, as a check on each other's honesty, he proposed they agree to aerial inspection of each other from the air. In spite of repeated optimistic statements about eventual agreement by Harold E. Stassen, the President's special disarmament adviser, the two sides are still far apart. Will Get Nowhere ' And any agreement on disarmament at the Big Four foreign. ministers' meeting, which began j yesterday in Geneva, has a splendid chance of getting nowhere- A loofc at the problem shows why. For years the United States has said that before this country would agree to disarm—which Would mean getting rid of the atomic weapons on which it had spent so much time and cash—there would have to be this bind of agreement: Before any disarmament the big powers must agree on a foolproof system of checking to prevent cheating. This country backed the idea of international teams of inspectors free to roam around inside the territory of the big powers. The Russians wouldn't buy. They traditionally had refused to let outsiders poke around inside Russia. Then last May, no doubt as part of their so-called new look, they agreed to inspection but in a very INSPECT STEELE CHURCH — The Rev. Howard Hamrick, Thelbert Bishop, Lewis Rodgers and R. C.

Highway 61 Ph. 2-2142 the Russians want most. They placed liquidation of overseas bases. The United States doesn't argue that aerial inspection is the beginning and end of all agreement on disarmaemnt. It takes the position that that is one of the early steps. The United States and Russia could be said ! to be a little closer than they were j in the late 1940s. But they are still so far apart that almost certainly it will be years before they reach a full agreement, if they ever do. They'd have to build up a lot more confidence in each other's good intentions than they have now. iBIytheyille Area Girls Are 'Travelers' ! COLUMBUS.
