TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14,19,18 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Soviet Unions New Propaganda Moves Have US. Wondering By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst . WASHINGTON (AP) — The Russians must have a new public relations man. Every move packs a propaganda wallop. They waltz up to the United States as if to shake hands and then sock with a fast left cross. ed peace and pointed out United States had surrounded sia with air bases. Eisenhower and Secretary' hi state Dulles decided to wait a while before rejecting this second offer, as they almost certainly will. They haven't answered yet. Balloon Charge Feb. 6. While the world was still pondering this second Soviet offer, Their timing Is good, as the dates show. They've got this country wondering where the next punch is coming from. But there's no mystery" about their propaganda which has two aims: to shake loose this country's allies by trying to, fill them with misgiving about American intentions; and to win over the people of Asia. Africa and the Middle East with the idea Russia is big brother, the United States the opposite. Here are some dates: Jan.. 25. While Britain's Prime Minister Eden was on his way here to meet with President Eisenhower—an event bound to capture world headlines — Premier Bul- ganln sent Eisenhower a personal message. Shared Headline! Thereafter Eden's approaching visit had to share top headlines with the message. Secrecy surrounding it added to the interest. Russia didn't spoil the interest by revealing the contents. Jan. 2€. Eisenhower released both Bulganin's message and his own reply. Bulganln had proposed a 30-year friendship treaty. Eisenhower rejected the offer, suggesting Russia show its good intentions by deeds rather than words. Jan. 39.* The Soviet press headlined Bulganin's offer but didn't mention Eisenhower's reply. The Russians let the offer sink in, getting maximum mileage out of it, building up the hopes of people who didn't know Eisenhower's re- Ply. Jan. SO-Feb. 1. After three days of talks, Eisenhower and Eden issued a joint statement on what they had discussed and decided. It was vague. They stressed their wishes for peaceful settlements in the Middle East. 19M Agreement They referred to a 1950 agreement they had with the Trench to «top.» war in the Middle East, if It broke out, by acting together Inside or outside the United Nation*. Did this mean they'd intervene with troops? They didn't say. Th« Russians let this pass momentarily. They had other fish to fry. AB if to divert world attention from the Eisenhower - Eden message of the day before, Bul- fanin did an extraordinary thing. Feb. 1. He sent a second letter to —Eisenhower, urging again a friendship treaty and offered the same kind of treaty to America's friends. Hs called on this country to show by deeds also that It want- "nte Russians accused theTJffi States of sending balloons equipped with cameras and radios over sia to do military spying. This may have been meant to back up Bulganin's complaint the United States was hemming in Russia militarily. The Russians played this tune for days, even after the United States said it would try not to let It happen again although explaining the balloons were not aerial spies but were gatheri»; only scientific information. Feb. 13. Russia picked up what it had ignored before: the Eisenhower-Eden statement. It warnec against use of American-British- French troops in the Middle East, put itself in the position of protecting the Arabs, and accused the West o( being more Interested in oil investments in the Middle East than in the people there.
