», 19SS BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Walter Robertson: ' Virginia Statesman By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — Walter S. Robertson is a 59-year-old Virginian who comes into a room like a much younger man. He looks like one you'd pick, at first glance, for the job of calming people down. That may have been a reason why President Eisenhower sent him to South Korea in June to talk to President Syngman Rhee. Another was the fact that he is assistant secretary of state for Far Eastern affairs. PAGE THREh At the time, as he is now one more, Rhee was the biggest prob lem in the Par East. He wa threatening to block a Koreai ,. truce. Rhee is an extraordinar; man who needs more than ordi nary handling. He got it from Robertson, now back here, relaxed and self-confident business man, which he was :an investmen RITZ THEATRE Manila, Ark.

Unaffiicted But, unlike some other Sta Department officials, past present, Robertson is neither po derous nor afflicted with that vagu and rubbery kind of talk whlc grows like weeds in the languag of diplomats. This is not Robertson's first Jo with the government but he wa never a career diplomat. If he ha one outstanding quality it woul seem to be his realism. He doe not sound like a man looking fo a silver lining. He had been head of the 0. S lend-lease mission to Australia 1 1943 and 1945 In 1945 and 1946 h had worked for the State Depar ment in China, where he got t know intimately both Chiang Ka shek and his Nationalist govern ment, and the leading Chines Communists who were out t wreck Chiang He was part of the special mis sion, headed by Gen. Georg Marshall, which tried to get Chian and the Communists to live up a truce. Robertson illustrated fore sight later, in 1948, when he testi fied before a House committee or postwar foreign aid. Chiang he described as a patriot and he urged Congress to give him all-out aid. Otherwise, he said, the Commu nists would take China, which the; did despite some U. S. help fol Chiang. At the same time he made t clear he knew the Communists well. Knows Reds "Some of them are my personal riends," he said. But he had no usions about their intentions. He vould have short patience with nyone who has the notion the Chinese Communists, like Yugo lavia's Tito, could be won away rom Moscow "They hate Amerca," he said. At the time Robertson went to :orea, Rhee had whipped himself nd his people into a lather hreatening to fight the Chinese ingle-handed If Rhee was highly emotional, nd even extreme in his position, t can be understood. He had de- oted his whole life to one projct: seeking independence for Ko- ea, first from the Japanese and ow from the Communists. Robertson does not look upon hee as an eccentric. He considers Im, as he considers Chiang, reat patriot, a man dedicated to is country. Rhee was so emotionally charged hat in hts early meetings with obertson—they had 12 altogether —the Virginian let the old man leak for 30 minutes without rnter- uption to talk himself into calm- .ess.

The itatement was so vaguely worded it must have been intentional, perhaps to avoid for Rhee anything which might appear, in the eyes of his countrymen, as a capitulation to the United States. For that reason what followed, at almost the very moment the statement was being made public, seems Inexcusably crude, thoughtless and boastful: Someone connected with Robertson's party, or some other government agency in the Far East, told correspondents Rhee had made concession after concession and even had exclaimed to Robertson: "You have conquered me." I For a sensitive, self-conscious man like Rhee that must have I been a galling dose to swallow. It | may even have been a factor in causing him later, along with other provocations, to blow up again and once more threaten the truce. WILSON NEWS By Mrs. B. F.

The affair started a good while ago as the Hope Watermelon Festival, but it grew and grew until it took in the whole county, I've never seen a man, woman or child who didn't love good watermelon and the folks in Hempstead County know how to grow quality products that are known all over the nation.
