THURSDAY, MAY 21, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Ike, Churchill, Mayer To Air Allied Problems (Continued from Page 1) Hagerty simply read Eisenhower' statement and said he was not go ing t* elaborate on it. This statement said: "The governments of the Unite; States, Great Britain and Franc have been in consultation with th view of holding an informal high level meeting. "We have agreed that such a meeting is desirable at a date con venient to all of us. "A primary purpose will be fur I'^0M ther to develop common viewpoint, with these friends on the mans problems that must be solved co operative!}' so that the cause o Commodity And Stock Markets— New York Cotton Open High Low July 3421 3423 3410 Oct 3374 3378 3373 Dec 3373 3378 3371 Mch 3382 3385 3381 1:1 3411 3375 337: 3382 New Orleans Cotton Open High Low 1:15 July 3420 3420 3407 3409 Oct 3374 3377 3371 3375 Dec 3375 3374 3370 3379 Mch 3385 3387 3380 3387 ^May 3382 3382 3380 3380 Soybeans Jly .

Asked whether the President started the ball rolling, Hagerty called reporters' attention to" statement issued by Churchill. It said in part: 'President Eisenhower has ex- presspd a wish for a personal meeting with the French prime minister and myself to discuss our common problems." Hagerty added there had been no definite decision as to where the session would be held, but that Churchill had suggested Bermuda. 'The President of the United States has no objection to that," Hagerty said. He added that he understood Mayer also has no objections to Bermuda as a meeting place. Saying no definite date for the conference has been fixed, Hagerty called attention to the fact that Churchill must be In London June 2 for the coronation of Queen Ilizabeth. He also noted that Eisenhower vill leave Washington June ,10 for a series of speeches in Minnesota, Torth Dakota, South Dakota, New Hampshire and New York. The President is scheduled to re- urn to Washington from this trip n June 14, and Hagerty said the )ig three conference probably vould be held soon after that date. Hagerty did not expand on Eisen- lower's statement as to the pur- lose of the meeting. The agreement on it comes at a !me when there has been increasing pressure in Britain for a high- evel conference with the Russians imed at easing East-West tension. But so far as could be quickly de- ermined here there was no inten- on or desire on the part of Elsen- ower to turn the meeting into a ig four session by ringing in So- iet Premier Malenkov. Is Malenkov Representative? On the contrary, and despite evt- ences of a different view on the .irt of Churchill, the Eisenhower ovez'nment appears convinced that is is no time for a meeting with PAGE THRB1 IT 'S A BIG RACKET TO THEM-Loud noises and shoving crowds at the coronation in London won't bother these horses alter they ve completed their special "racket rehearsals."

USAF (Continued from Page 1) containing from 30 to 75 planes. $5 Billion Less The revised Pentagon budget also calls for about five billion dollars less in new funds for the Air Force in the fiscal year start- ng July 1. President Eisenhower, In his radio address Tuesday night, said 60 cents of every defense dollar will still be going into Navy and Air Force air power. Wilson told the senators yesterday that the 143-wlng goal of the Truman administration had been slipping further from realization for more than three years and he added: : "When we say 120 wings we we menu 120." Ferguson said discussion about "a certain number of wings or BO nany unspent billions is only confusing." "Under the revised 120 - wing nterim goal of the Eisenhower ad- ninistratiou this nation BhouW have a lot more modern combat ilanes and much more striking lower' than the unreached 143- ving paper target," he said. Wilson and Deputy Secretary Roger M. Kyes stressed that even Ark-Mo Names Ad Assistant- WllUam T.

Moreover, signs are lacking of any real changes in Russia's basic policies toward the rest of the world. Diplomatic informants said one purpose of the conference undoubtedly is to shore up faltering Allied unity which recently has been beset by various disruptive forces. President Eisenhower was represented as believing that the session with Churchill and Mayer would go a long way toward dispelling misunderstandings, and would dramatically symbolize the extent to wh'ich the United States, Britain and France have common interests and common purports. The problems which require understanding if not cooperation among the leaders of the Western powers range from critical Par Eastern issues to difficulties of completing what the United States considers an adequate European defense system. In this connection it was, considered probable that Eisenhower would want to raise with Mayer the ratification of European Defense Treaties which would clear the way for German rearmament. U. S. officials, though extremely reluctant to talk about the situation even privately, are sharply aware that the change of governments in the United States and in Russia, the introduction of new cutbacks in American spending abroad, the long and disappointing course of Korean truce negotiations, the Soviet diplomatic offensive built on appeals for "peace," are among factors which have caused such aw caused such a wave of recriminations particularly between Washington and London.
