BLTTHiriLLE (ARI.) OOUHIEH NEWS TUMDAT, HBBRUAKT », 1WI- Dulles' 'Chief Aide Seems to Have Knack For Hot Spots, Too By JAMES MARLOW Associated Frw« Newi Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — At the State Department, Secretary Dulles has no monopoly on awkward situations. His next- in-command, Herbert Hoover Jr., has managed to get into a couple, too, with the help of President Eisenhower. The department goofed once and In a few days the department lift- got caught in it* own flypaper another time while Hoover, the undersecretary, was running the show for Dulles, who was on vacation. The first involved Red China, the second tanks for Saudi Arabia. Last spring Chou En-lai. the Red Chines* premier, world's hopes «nd caught attention this sudden proposal: that his country and the United States sit down and talk about relaxing tension around 'Formosa. Tried to Explain Hoover, with the approval of Ei- aenbower, gave an answer ed the suspension, let the tanlcs be shipped. How did this happen in the first place? And why, once the State Department had decided to let Saudi Arabia have the tanks, did it suspend the shipment at all? the Hoover tried to explain to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Whatever light his testimony threw on the deal, it was a confusing kind of light. This was his | story: Some years ago, when Saudi Arabia let the United States build an air base there, close to Russia, got* bad'world reaction and which it got this country to agree to sell thou said almost c.osed,the door ^"^J^-^L*^*^^. on any talks. The answer was given so fast it couldn't have been thought out very well. Hoover said the United States •would insist that the Nationalist Chinese on Formosa sit in on any talks. This would just about prevent even exploratory talks since the Reds and Natoinalists don't recognize each other as legitimate governments. When he got back from vacation Dulles tried to straighten out this error by saying Nationalist China wouldn't have to sit in on a cease-fire talk but would have to be there if the conversation got around to who owned Formosa. Hoover's next big unhappy moment came this month. Without mny public announcement the State Department planned to send 18 tank* to Saudi Arabia. K might never have said, anything about it If there hadn't been a leak. Someone saw the tanks on the Brooklyn waterfront, ready to be loaded" on • boat bound for Saudi Arabia. Bad Reaction •coding tanks to the Arabs was big news, since the department for months had been delaying action on the pleas of Israel for weapons. The Israelis said they needed equipment for defense against the Arab nations. Not until H was asked about it, and then only after some delay, did the State Department say it had approved the tanks for Saudi Arabia. It tried to brush off the whol« business by saying ft was n. routine matter. But It wasn't routine to the newspapers and radio which played the news big. Many members of Congress symi»thetic to the Israelis requMt for arms denounced the shipment. quickly Hoover—he now says with Elsenhower's approval — ordered the shipment suspended. This infuriated the Arabs. All sides were angry at the department now for tanks for tralnng purposes. On Aug. 25 he Unted States agreed. Saudi Arabia paid for the tanks Nov. 36 and was notified the tanks would be shipped in February This gave the state Department more than two months to checK to be sure everything about this transaction was .egal. But when the legality of it was questioned, Hoover said, he decided the department had better check to be sure everything was legal. This didn't make Hoover or the department look very sure of what they were doing. house trailers on 3, Block 3, Bugg NOTICE Notice is hereby given that Bett lah McLeod has filed application with the City Engineer for a Permit to establish and construct a House Trailer Court to accommodate seven (7) Lois 1, 2, and Addition to the City of Blytheville, Arkansas.
