FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Was 'Geneva Spirit' a Dud From the Very Biginning? By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — There was a rough awakening this week for those who thought Russia's milder manner in 1955 was due to weakness or that the "Spirit of Geneva" was anything more than nice talk. When the Russians earlier this year shifted from the longstanding verbal brutalities of Stalin to a friendlier tone, there were some in this country who interpreted this as a sign Moscow needed to relax tensions. "ftion—has offered anything that could be considered on a conces- They thought internal problems were forcing the Russians to cut down on the arms rsice. II would have been more realist*^ to look upon the change in the Russian manner as simply a shift in tactics—as many did. Iron Stand The iron stand taken by Russia this week at the Big Four foreign ministers conference in Geneva was not that of a weak country anxious to bargain or make concessions, but that of a strong and self-confident country. The Russians yielded nothing to the West, and Russia has been frozen for years. If anyone yield: now, there is nothing to indicate it will be the Russians. They're doing, all right, it seems. They can afford 10 stand stiff to see if the West caves in a bit. The Russians have the West worried with the inroads they've been making in the Middle East. The West, which seemed sound asleep there, may have to make big and costly efforts to overcome Russian initiative in that area. Or, the West may have to make concessions elsewhere, -erhaps in Europe to make the Russians back up a bit. if they will. As for Germany, right now it's a stand-off between Russia and the West. The Western nnwers are. and have been, anxious to get Germany united and tied into the Western alliances. The Russians want the Germans, if they ever are permitted to unite, tied in with Russians. May Gain by Waiting At the moment the West has West Germany on its side, the Russians have East Germany. From their viewpoint, there's no practical reason for permitting German unification now. In fact, they may gain by waiting. The best friend the West has in West Germany is Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. He's old and sick and may die or have to leave office soon. Not even all of Adenauer's West Germans want military alliance with the West. The Russians can afford to stand stiff, yielding nothing on Germany, until Adenauer leaves the scene and his successors take over. In their desire for German unity, they may be willing to sever their West- tern ties and deal directly with Moscow. The Russians paved the way for their doing just that when they recently established diplomatic relations with the West German government for the first time since WITH ARK-MO — Glenn Eaker, a veteran of the utility business, has been appointed supervisor of industrial electric sales for ArkansaS'MioSouri Power Co., it was announced today by Ark- Mo President Charles C. Czeschin. Eaker previously worked for Ark-Mo in 1936 when he was employed in the company's meter department, and later did rural survey work for the company. Since 1939, he has served as manager of the Pemiscot-Dunklin Rural Electric cooperative at Hayti. the war. The failure of the Geneva conference to get agreement between the West and Russia on anything of importance \vill be described as the end of the "Geneva spirit." What Spirit? The correct question at this point is: What Geneva spirit? At Geneva last summer President Eisenhower and Russian Premier Bulganin got along pleasantly. They parted pleasantly. But they accomplished nothing definite. They were supposed—or so a lot of people seemed to think—to have paved the way for agreements. B , the Western and Russian positions had been so far apart for so long there could be no agreement unless one side or the other made major concessions. Neither side—except for Eisenhower's proposal on aerial inspec- tion since then. And the Russians say now they don't look on Eisenhower's idea as a concession. What's ahead? Perhaps the best the two sides will be able to do, in the foreseeable future, is avoid war unless per.rips the West is willing to yield a bit. There is no sign the Russians have intention 01 yielding on any major point. Trip to Shoe Shop Expensive PASADENA, Calif. (&)— Taking a jmir of shoes to a repair shop cost jewelry salesman William H. Henderson between $50,000 and $60,000, he told police.
