FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1», 1fW BLYnnSVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THRE1 Geneva Parley Proved Only What World Already Knew By JAMES MARLOW Associated frees New* Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — The Geneva conference, a complete failure, proved only what was apparent before it began: both sides feel so powerful neither thinks it necessary — yet — to yield anything to the other. At the meeting which ended yesterday the West and Russia simply restated previous, frozen positions. There was no bargaining, no negotiating. Each side made propaganda for itself against the other. After watching the four foreign ministers perform, this seems a fair conclusion: The West and Russia a££ determined to stay fully armed, , to watch, maneuver, and try or hope for a break which will make the other yield ground. Ho v long will this go on? Probably for years. There is no reason and no evidence to think otherwise. If this meeting served no other useful purpose, at least it put the finger on the "Geneva spirit" for what it was: a myth. By Improvement 'resident Eisenhower and Soviet Premier their summit meeting last July in Geneva' expressed pious hopes for the future. The fact that they could talk on friendly terms was a big improvement over recent relations. But saying "Hello" to a man is a lot different from being able to do business with him in a satisfactory way. The Eisenhower-Bul- ganin meeting could have no meaning unless it was translated into realty by deeds. It was just about impossible to see how that could happen in the foreseeable future since the gap between the West and Russia—the profound difference in their aims and desires—was so wide. It is easy to be partisan in appraising the performance of the two sides at the foreign ministers meeting. The judgement of the man-in-the-street— depending on whether he's in. Washington, London, Paris or Moscow — will be based largely on his patriotism and prejudice. Just and Reasonable If you had been an American at Geneva, watching Secretary of State Dulles, you no doubt would have thought his position just and reasonable since you would have been looking at it from the interest of the United States. For example: He wants Germany united and linked in a military" alliance with this country. That's life insurance against Russian expansion or attack. If you had been a Russian at Geneva, watching Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov, jwu would no doubt have given him full approval when he took a stand opposite Dulles. He wants Germany united but linked to Russia. That would have meant lite Insurance against new German militarism or West- Weather Hurting Christmas Tree Crop in Montana EUREKA, Mont.
