MONDAY, APRIL 9, 1956 BLITHTLVILLE (A1W.} PAGE NtNJ, Current Foreign. Policy Was Authored by Keenay By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — If Secretary of State Dulles, in talking about the Russians' switch to a- softer line, sometimes sounds as if he had just been reading George Kennan, it is an oblique tribute to former President Truman. Dulles seldom pays any direct tributto to Truman. He almost never mentions him. But he says the Russians have been forced to change their tactics by the U.S. policy 01 foreign aid and military alliances. This policy as laid down by Truman. It is largely followed b: the Eisenhower administration This is flattering to Trunian. he acknowledged this week, and it might seem enough to makt him content. Somethinr New But it doesn't. What he prefers he said, is for the Eisenhower ad ministration to come up with some new program to meet chang ing conditions because the times call for it. Kennan was the State Depart ment's top expert on Russia anc director of its policy planning: staff when the cold war was starting in 1947. That was the year Truman began the foreign program which President Eisenhower continues. Kennan has been credited with thinking up the idea which became U.S. policy. It's been callec "containment." The idea was simple enough: stop Russian expansion by building & ring of military alliances around the Soviets. Eisenhower and Dulles have continued and Increased the military alliances begun by Truman. Policy Writing in the magazine Foreign Affairs in 1947, Kennan stated the policy: "The main element of any United States policy toward the Soviet Union must be that of, patient but firm and visrilant containment . . ." Although in the 1952 presidential campaign Dulles criticized mere "containment" as futile, the day after election he reassured "our friends abroad who will fear lest our foreign policies change." Dulles not only didn't change those policies, he pursued them. Kennan, predicting In his 1947 magazine piece what containment would accomplish, said: ". . . The United States has it in its power to increase enormously the strains under which Soviet policy must operate, to force upon the Kremlin ft far greater degree of modera- toin and circumspection. . ." Sees Shift Last Feb. 26 Dulles said there had been a "notable" shift in Soviet foreign policy beep use the Russians "have been thwarted by the free world." He called the military alliances heavy pressure or. the Soviets. On Feb. 24 he said Russian policies of intolerance and violence "have gradually ceased to produce results. . . The iree nations have banded together. . The result is that they (the Russians) have got to revamp their whole creed from A to Z." At times Dulles doesn't seem sure whether the Russians are revamping "their whole creed from A to Z" or whether they are just shifting their tactics because they think they can catch more flies with molasses than with Stalin's vinegar. On April 3 Dulles said: " , . . Insofar as I am aware, the Soviets, while they have attempted to disavow much of Stalin's program and many of his acts, have not themselves come up with any substitute . . . "The downgrading of Stalin does not of itself demonstrate that the Soviet regime has basically changed its foreign or domestic policies."
