THURSDAY, MAY 7, 1953 BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COtmiEn NEWS PA OB HJnS Happy American-Soviet Relations Of 8 Years Ago Incredible Now By DON WIUTEIIEAD For JAMES MAKLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — They seem almost Incred ible now, those happy and exciting days eight years ag ffhen Americans and Russians found it easy to be friends on the banks ot the Mulde River in Germany. Tha was on the eve of the Nazi surrender May 7, 1945. For a few days, there was no cloud of suspicion or distrust. Ivan and Joe found pleasure in each other 1 company. They had no trouble getting along. & They had met at the town o: Torgau in the role of victors near- Ing the end of the long and bitter inarch into Germany. As far as these soldiers in the ranks were concerned, there was no reasoi why they shouldn't be friends They accepted each other on even terms. There on the Mulde. we correspondents watched them throw their arms about each other and whoop with delight. They toasted with champagne in beer mugs anc talked in sign language when they couldn't fathom each other's spoken words. They exchanged invitations to parties and swapped gifts. They insisted they wanted to live r See if/sow/ fe-t Cych Food Freezer-Refrigerator Combined!

A Subtle Change But then came a subtle change. The Russians who had been BO friendly withdrew into a shell. The Russian officers—undoubtedly acting on orders from above—begai to cut themselves and their men from association with the Americans. They gradually strangled tin thriving spirit of friendship even while the world cheered the defeat of Hitler's hordes as the 1 way to peace. The show of friendship at first had extended even to the generals. Russia's Gen. Ivan S. Koniev invited America's Gen. Omar Bradley ,to his headquarters for a feast. Tables were laden with caviar, sturgeon, mounds of other food, and carafes filled with vodka and wine. A soldier's chorus sang magnificiently—they .even sang the "Star Spangled Banner" and brought the American guests to their feet cheering. Bradley returned the courtesy, laying on an American-style feast for .Koniev and members of his staff. The Americans weren't going to be outdone in hospitality. Showed Allied Might Bradley has recounted how he took Koniev into his war room and showed him the Allied might reflected on his maps. The Russian was treated as an ally. Later Bradley told me: "The war was over so tar as we were concerned. I didn't see any reason why he shouldn't see my war :ap." Then Bradley added wryly: "But Koniev didn't show me his war map." And so it was in many ways- some small and some large—that the Russians began to roll down their Iron Curtain. But not before .he Russian soldiers had shown hey were ready—if left alone—to be friends with the Americans. Many a Russian must have gone back home to tell his family and icighbors about those days of 'riendship. Ivan must sometimes ivonder why peace with America seems so difficult when he found riendship with Americans so easy. That is the real tragedy of this eve of the eighth anniversary of 'ictory in Europe.

U.S. May Take Invasion of Laos to U.N. WASHINGTON (ff) — Secretary of State Dulles said yesterday th United States is consulting with several Allies on a possible appea to the United Nations for action ii dealing with the Communist-led invasion of Laos. Dulles noted that Prance, Trai- land and .the three associated states of Indochina were involved in the new Southeast Asia crisis. "We are in conversation with those countries with reference to possible United Nations action: the secretary told the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The attack on Laos, Dulles testified, "does not even pretend to be revolutionary effort but is straight military aggression." He testified that a successful extension of the attack against Thailand would mean a threat to Burma and Indonesia and might make the future of Japan "extremely precarious." Present plans to put Japan on a self-supporting basis, he said, contemplate development. of Japanese trade with Southeast Asia. Thai and U. S. officials reported earlier today that Dulles has told Ambasador Pole Sarasin the U. S. vould give "most sympathetic consideration" to a Thai request for expansion of arms aid to that embattled country.

Harris told a reporter this appar- ntly winds up the fight in behalf f Hope. "We made the best fight we ould; presented our arguments in ehalf of economy. There seems othing else now that we can do," e said. UTTLt LIZ— For every guy who grumbles because,he doesn't get what's coming to him, there ore a hundred who grumble because they do.
