BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWt WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 1951 Expansion of NATO Not A New Idea witk Dulles By JAMES MAKLOW A»oclalwl Preti Mew« Analyit WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dulles, in the manner of a man dipping his toe into water to see if he gets chilled or over-heated, seems to be suggesting the North At- lintic Treaty Organization (NATO) might be expanded. The idea isn't new with him. At the moment he does not commit himself to it. Rather, he is frankly throwing out a hint to see what reaction he gets. An expansion would mean the Ouy Mollet said the United States Iceland, which is a NATO mem- allies of NATO, which was created In 1948 13 a defense against Russia, would move from a purely military alliance .into a wider field—perhaps economic—of cooperation among the Western partners. Pressure has been building up among this country's NATO allies to stop using it for military purposes only. Dulles mentioned this possibility in a speech Monday to the Associated Press luncheon in New York. He said NATO "already serves .5 an indispensable and vital strument of the Atlantic community. But the time has come, believe, to consider whether its organization does not need to be further developed, if it is ade- qutely to serve the needs of this and coming generations," Dulles added: Will Explore FoMibllllles "If that be the common desire of the NATO member nations, the United States will join eagerly in exploring the possibilities which now beckon forward." Last Dec. 16 the NATO foreign ministers, including Dulles, endorsed a, proposal by Italy's Gaetano Partiho for greater cooperation among the NATO members in nonmilltary ways, such as economic, social and cultural fields. Canada's foreign minister, Lester Pearson, has been plugging this idea and on Feb. 39 Italy's President Giovanni GronchI made a big pitch for it in »n address to Congress. "Military cooperation continues to be very important today," Oroncht said, "but it should be supplemented with new and imaginative forms of cooperation. The new methods . . . should range from the political to the social and economic areas." Th« next day. March 1, President Eisenhower and Qronchi Issued a joint statement saying they agreed on the necessity of "further deepening the solidarity among the memberi of the North Atlantic community through Increased cooperation In all fields." That U. S. allies are not completely happy with the military emphasis this country has placed on NATO up to now was disclosed in other ways, way* which must have given Dulles some concern, since he knows Russia wants to wreck NATO. This month French Premier thinks too much of "security In military terms." And on March 2 France's Foreign Minister Christian PIneau cautioned against an "Iron Curtain mentality" in the West. He said the West—particularly (he United States—put too much e m p h a s is on military strength. On March M the Parliament of Non-Agriculture Employment Up LITTLE ROCK (fl—Non-farm Industries employed about 4,800 more workers In Arkansas during March than they did in February. The state Employment Security Division said yesterday thai March non-farm employment In Arkansas totaled 315,900. ESD Administrator J. L. Bland attributed the increase to seasonal expansion in food processing industries. Factory workers in Arkansas averaged J1.39 an hour during March, the ESD said. That Is an increase of 6 cents over February and a boots of 11 cents over March 1955.
