BLTITOTILLB (ARK.) COURIER Molotov Left Big 3 Chiefs Speechless with Unity No By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) Russia's Foreign Minister Molotov at least has had the distinction of rendering the three Western foreign ministers speechless at Geneva. For one diplomat to be able to knock the talk out of three other diplomats is quite an achievement. But why Molotov had such an effect on them is hrfrd to see. When he told Russia wouldn't agree to their plan for unifying Germany, the three ministers had to call a recess until today. Secretary of Slate Dulles said he had to consider the matter overnight before speaking. Yet Molotov's performance was them yesterday Russia hadn't bcome too wretch--vant no surprise. The No. 1 problem before the four ministers before they ever reached Geneva, just as It has been the No. 1 problem since they arrived there, is the unification of Germany. Just Can't Agree The West and Russia had never been abie to agree on it before. And there was no reason to believe the Russians this time at Geneva would soften up or cave in. There was no widespread optimism here that they would. The best anyone could reasonably hope for—before the conference—was that the two sides might reach some small agree- in e ts on other problems and fin- ed again, there might be some more agreements on some other problems smaller than the unification of Germany. The United States. Britain and France would like to see Germany united under a democratic government favorable to the West and linked to it, just as West Germany now is linked to it through the North Atlantic military alliance. Would Choose Democracy And that's exactly the last'thing the Russians want to see. Prom all reports the East and West Germans — if they were permitted to — unite and have free elections to j all ove choose a new government — would Communist Germany, And there can hardly be any doubt of that. And where does this leave the West and Russia so far as Germany is concerned? So far as can be seen it leaves them right up against the same stone wall that separated them before the Geneva meeting began,Oct. 27. Dulles and Molotov did a little traveling during a weekend recess in the conference. Molotov went to Moscow. Dulles went to Yugoslavia to see Marshal Tito, who is friendly with the West and recemly became froendly with the Russians WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER *. choose a democratic government favorable to the West. The Russians certainly have reason to fear that would happen. For that reason they not permit free elections, as Molotov has made clear. He denounced the idea of free elections. He called it . "unreal and dangerous."

Me is employed with a freight company of Cape Girardeau. Halloween entertainments began Sunday night when the recently organized Methodist Youth Fellowship with counselor Mrs. Joe Cohoon and teacher Pinnell Capehart met in the church recreation hall for a UNICEP party. This was a simultaneous nationwide affair for the United Nations international Children's Emergency Fund and the results of Sunday i night's group drive WM_fjfty-six' dollars of which the entire amount will be contributed to "UNICEF. Following the MYF lesson a hal- lowcen party was held and doughnuts with hot chocolate were served. Beginners and Primary classes were treated to a party on Halloween by their Sunday School teachers, Mrs. L. Berry and Mrs. Sadie Crews. The children came in cos 1 tunie and masked. A most realistic broomstick-rid- j Ing witch beside a huge black melt-1 ing pot stood eerily in one corner of the recreation room. A black cat with evil green eyes nestled cozily in a basket of leaves. Dozens ol paper pumpkins set 1 about on tables and skeletons hung grotesquely' in windows. Green and orange paper streamers were used throughout. Outside the church a spotlight shone on a ghost mysteriously suspended from mid-air. Mystery and i intrigue for the children made the , evening a hit. again. Tito in Good Spot Since both Russia and the West want Tito on their side, he's in a good spot to play off one ag-.inst the other, saying something that pleases one side one time, and; something that pleases the other' another time. After their meeting Dulles and Tito issued a statement. They said, they'd like In see the Russian: satellite countries independent That means independent of Russia domination. That was a first-class propaganda harpoon, thrown directly into the hide of the Russian bear. The j least it could do was stir up some discontent among the non-Communist satellite people. But just how smart Dulles was in heaving this harpoon, right in the midst of the Geneva confer- enc when he was hoping for some agreement with Molotov, is a question which will probably be debated for some time. Just before he left Moscow for Geneva, Molofcov told foreign correspondents he was taking "better baggage" back to Geneva with him. At once the Western optimist mi.rket took on a bullish turn. Bui, judging from Molotov's almost brutal position on Germany when he got back to Geneva, that "better baggage" he talked of consisted of one big torpedo. Mr. and Mrs. J. W.
