TOWDAT, MNUAKY t, 1MN BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Du//es Is Confident West to Gain In '56 World Affalfs Tug-of-War •T JAMES MABLOW , AtMcUte* rrcii New* Aulr»i WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dulles expressed confidence over the weekend the West will make better hay than the Russians in world affairs in 1956. This wasn't surprising. "A secretary of state can hardly be blamed for optimism about his own policies, particularly in an election year. But if he has anything more than hope — if he has any evidence of it — Dulles didn't disclose it. After outlining the number of American military alliances In 1955, Dulles sold: "Thus, the tree world has done 'much to consolidate Its position and deter open aggression." He added: "Now the Soviet rulers turn to other devices. We can be confident that these, too, will fall and that 1856 will further extend the Influence of the tree world." He didn't explain what he meant by the Soviet's "other devices." Perhaps he meant their. ern propaganda tour through Asia and the economic help they offered there and to the Middle East. But when he said these devices "too, will fail," he wasn't being clear at all. Because it isn't.clear where the Russians failed in 1955. At the end oi the' year they seemed to be. doing all right.. At least they claimed they were, after the big welcome the Asians gave Premier Bulganri and Communist party boss Khrushchev. Western diplomats seemed concerned, about the Russians' trip. And the Elsenhower administration certainly made haste to urge that American foreign aid be continued. Actually, the Russians' success In Asia—if it was a success—may have been grossly, exaggerated. Any success of the trip will have to be proved by later developments. The trip Itself was not enough. .Dulles, in his- brief statement made in New York, did not go into all the phases of American foreign policy aimed at stopping Russian progress in the world. But it may be significant that what he did choose to talk about was American military alliances. He has a natural pride in them. In helping build them he became the most traveled secretary of state in American history. The alliances no doubt have discouraged the Communists ' from hasty aggressions. And now Dulles may find more time to spend at home thinking in terms far wid4r than military alliances. The Russians, by their trips and their tactics, made it plain enough American military pacts' can't bottle up their efforts to convert and take over the world. The United States could becomee so complacent abriul the military wall It has built to hem in the Russians, that it might wind up like the pre-war French who dreamed of safety behind the Maginot Line.
