Big 4 Confab 1 Settles Part of Troubles By PHIL NEWSOM United Pr«t Foreign Newt Editor The Berlin conference settled European boundaries for the foreseeable future. The Geneva conference, which is to include Red China, could settle world boundaries. The key Is Indochina, thus explaining the doubts which have arisen in the..United States Congress over the advisability of this new meeting willi the Reds and the deep suspicions which have been aroused both In South Korea and Formosa. The Merlin conference ended in failure for the West, and a victory for the Communists. To be sure, the victory for the Russians was a negative one since it meant they remained in possession of territory they already hold, namely, East Germany and a part of Austria. The only victory for the West would have been one in which Soviet Foreign Minister Vyachcslav Molotov would have agreed to withdraw Red forces and set those territories free. War · Risk Since he refused, the only alternative is a war which neither the Communists nor the Western Nations arc willing to risk. The Russians chose France as FARMER SHARE OP FOOD $ DROPS--The drop in the farmer's share of the dollar spent for food during World War II, during 1952 and during 1953 is indicated above. The figin-03 come from U. S. Department of Agriculture. the weak point of the Western alliance in the conference at Berlin, and France again is the target of the April conference scheduled for Geneva. And it is for that reason that the Geneva conference becomes global in scope, and the Berlin meeting but a stepping stone. At Geneva, the Red Chinese and the Red Russians each will have a bird to kill. All of French attention today is centered on the hope of a negotiated end to the seven-year war in Indochina. The French felt that a victory had been achieved in Berlin when the Russians agreed to a five-now-; er conference which would have as one of its objectives a truce to a war which has cost them one billion dollars a year and 100,000 casualties with no end in sight. Molotov Fnnk Conversely, Molotov announced frankly in Berlin that one of his objectives was to kill the plan for a European army, of which France also Is the key. He also announced his belief that unless the European Army Plan is ratified this year, it Is a dead pigeon. The French will not want to annoy the Reds while the Indochina talks still are in prospect or in progress, thus effectively delaying the army plan. The Communists, on the other hand, will have every reason to delay or prolong as much as possible, simultaneously holding in abeyance the fate of Europe. From the Asiatic standpoint there are these considerations. The West, in effect, already has admitted that Korea will remain divided indefinitely. The Nationalist Chinese on Formosa believe that, whether the West likes it or not, the Geneva conference gives the China Reds a foot in the door of world councils at Nationalist expense. And so far as Indochina is concerned, any negotiated truce must involve a compromise. What happens then to the Reds already scattered the length and breadth of Indochina in such force that the French admit no military victory against them is possible this year? White House Has Troubles, Says Newsman By MERRIMAN SMITH PALM SPRINGS, Calif. ( U P ) -Backstairs at the traveling White House: This is for the hundreds of people who h a v e been bombarding President Eisenhower with letters, telegrams and telephone calls at his faction headquarters here-It docs no good to send the President of the United States a regis- tered letter with Instructions, "deliver to addressee only." No postman gets through to the Chief Executive. All registered letters arc signed for Dy a secretary. The same thing applies to people who place person-to-person telephone calls. Not since the 1052 campaign has the Eisenhower staff been subjected to such pressure as the barrage of requests hurled at them in Southern California. In a!I seriousness, a school board chairman called the While House switchboard to ask the President to decorate a safety patrol leader. Another caller wanted Mr. Eisenhower, in person, to examine his uranium mining claim. Sherman Adams, the assistant to the President, has a secret pas sum--ice skating. When the President is out of town, Adams, when he can get the time, races off to his native New Hampshire to skate and ski with his wife, Charley Farrell, the old time movie star and current TV head- Iliner, was so happy about Mr. Eisenhower being in Palm Springs --where Farrell owns the plush Racquet Club -- that he took a half-page ad in the local "Desert Sun" to say: "Hail to the chief, exclamation point. "After twenty years, it's wonder- Fob. 25, 1954 23 Maien Ciljr Globe-G»ietle, M»IOH City, to M to have that good old. Republican feeling again, exclamation point."
