PACE TWO W.YTHEVTT-LE fARK.T COURIER NEWS MONDAY, APRIL 27, 1958 Dulles Back from Europe To Seek Vital Financial Help for Defense Buildup By JOHN M. IUGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dulles returns from Paris today to seek vital financial support from Congress for a slowed-down European defense program. This may prove to be a formidable task—not only because of the cost-cutting temper of Congress but also because of indications the defense buildup may henceforth go even slower than Dulles himself has advocated. The secretary was due to report promptly to President Eisenhower on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Council meeting which he and other top U. S. officials attended. The Council set military targets for the Atlantic Allies for this year at an increase of six divisions in Western Europe for a predicted , total of about 56. Two years n$o j the aim by thai time was close to 100 divisions. The Eisenhower administration had favored n slowdown or stretch- out of the program for a long cold war struggle with the Soviets. Dulles thus abandoned the urgency with which representatives of the previous Truman administration had pressed the armament buildup. Evidence that the whole project might go even slower than he wanted, however, was found in the fact that the German upper house within recent Gays refused to ratify the Euroean Defense Community Treaty, under which West Germany would be rearmed. Also, there has been speculation that the Soviet peace ofensivefi would have relaxing effect on defense preparations in Enrope far more than In the U. S. Dulles, in sessions with congressional committees, will have to convince legislators that this country is getting Its money's worth out of current military and economic aid to Euroe and will continue to do so. Dulles reportedly cautioned European leaders they would have to make a better showing on the European army plan by June if Consrt'ss Is to be imprt'J Although European defense problems have nominated his ne- H'oti.ilions at Paris for, the past week. Dulles had a variety of other major problem's to discuss with the President. Among them were:: 1. The Moscow statement declaring Soviet readiness to join in businesslike pence negotiations with the peace plan which President Eisenhower put forth April If;, beginning with an armistice in Korea and ending with world disarmament. ! Dulles declined comment on (he j j statement Saturday. But President j Eisenhower said it might mean that the Soviets are ready to take some concrete steps toward peace. However, diplomatic officials found little except n polite (.one in the Russian statement to justify optimism. 2. In contrast to their own peace protestations the Reds are now pressing an expanded war In Indochina. U. S. officials feel the threat to Southeast Asia is grave. The U. S. assists the French with arms nnd training but otherwise has taken no part in the conflict.

The Korean truce talks—somewhat overshadowed by the exchange of sick and wounded war prisoners—appear to have come quickly to crisis following resumption after months of recess. In the first of the new sessions the Reds reportedly disagreed with all U. S. proposals.

Stewart .said Fredericks, an Insurance clerk, told this story: Last Jan. 7 he and his wife Ruth, j 32, got into an argument because J she wanted to go hack to work as a waitress in a cocktail lounge. He went outside to work in the yard. "I was cutting devil grass in the back yard When I heard her running toward me," he said. "Just as she got near me. she tripped over our children's wagon and fell. "A knife fell from her hand. She cursed me.
