COURIEP NEWS PAGE FIVE Dulles to Advocate Long Term Defense Program in Paris By JOHN M HICUITOWEK WASHINGTON W 1 )—Secretary of State Dulles flies to Paris this week to advocate a long-range European defense program designed to meet a continuing Soviet threat over a period of 20 or 30 years.

Eisenhower called for a series of settlements beginning with Korean truce and running through the ending of other Par Eastern conflicts, the conclusion of treaties for Germany and Austria and freedom for European satellites, and finally to agreement on global disarmament. Sen. Taft of Ohio, the Republican lender in the Senate, said In a week-end interview that any Korean armistice not based on settlement of Par Eastern problems generally would leave Korea permanently divided. "Every effort should be put into attempts to settle the overriding issues of the Par East—to end the Communist threats against Indochina and Malaya—as a part of the Korean truce agreement," Taft said. Cease Fire Better "Of course, it would be better to have a ceasefire in Korea than to continue a stalemate there, but I don't think we will ever get a united Korea by merely agreeing to stop the shooting , . . "We will have to settle all the questions of the Far East at one bite." Dulles told the editors the Soviet Union has still to demonstrate whether it will abandon an international conspiracy aimed at "over throwing every genuinely free government in the world." Until it does so, he made clear, the Eisenhower administration Is convinced that defenses must be fully maintained. This a long-time undertaking, he said, requiring adjustments of programs now under •way. In going to Paris tomorrow, Dulles will head a Cabinet-level delegation including Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey, Secretary of Defense Wilson and Mutual Security Director Harold E. Stassen. They are to represent this country at a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Council. It opens Thursday. While Dulles did not publicly state the possible duration of the European defense system as he envisions it, it is known that the Eisenhower administration has decided as a matter, of policy that the North Atlantic Allies should so organize their military forces and armament production that they will be able to meet any Soviet aggression over the next 20 to 30 years. The administration has decided this means the Atlantic nations must avoid such a burden of armament as would reduce them to bankruptcy and let the Reds take over by default.

Cartoon & Shorts »••»*»•»»»•»•»»»»»»»•»»» the price of the unpriceabl Water is beyond price, yet at intervals you get a water bill. Water is free, yet someone has fixed a dollar and cents value on nature's unpriceable gift. By what right? Go out into the country and you'll find the farmer getting all the water he wan Is, merely for the effort of digging a well and working a pump. He gets no water bill. Go up into Hie unspoiled mountains, dip your cup In a bubbling spring and drink your fill. Bring home a few barrels full. No one will impose any charge for what you take. Go down to the nearest river bank. Fill as many buckets as you can haul away. You won't have to pay a cent for their contents. Or the next time it rains, put out tubs and basins. Or do as they do in Bermuda: make your entire roof a collecting system leading to a cistern. No meter will register payments due. But ask the farmer what it cost to-dig his well and how much energy is consumed in operating it. Figure the expense of your trip to the mountains, not forgetting the price of the barrels. Compute the value of the time consumed in hauling river water, adding the doctor's bills in case you fail to boil it before using. And compare the amount of water you obtain with the cost of installing and maintaining a Bermuda-type roof collection system. Water is free to all. But it isn't always available where people want it in a condition safe for them to use. It's the water works' job to take over the (ask of collecting water, transporting water and making sure that the water delivered is safe for human consumption and suitable for human use, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And that's what you pay for when you pay your water bill. Blytheville Water Co. "Water 1$ Your Cheapest Commodity" through the lane.
