PAGEEKSTTEEK BLYTHEVILLR (ARK.) COURIER NEW! Taft Would Adopt GOP Statement of Principl es To Avoid Platform Fight By EOW1N B- HAAKINSOX WASHINGTON Wi—Sen. Robert A. Taft said today thai Republicans could avoid a possible light over their campaign platform this year by adopting at the Chicago convention a 1950 "statement of principles and objectives." Gen. D wight D. Eisenhower, •raft's chief rival for the Republican presidential nomination, gave general endorsement to the document at his Abilene, Kan., news conference last Thursday. Obviously referring to that, Taft told a reporter that Rcpubltcnns can avoid a convention battle because "that con be our platform now." The 1050 document was drawn up by Republican leaders In the Senate and House, including Taft, formally approved by a majority of GOP congressmen, anri then endorsed by (he Republican National Committee. At the time some GOP scnutors, classed as liberals or progressives, registered some dissents. They included several who now are back- Ing Kisenhower for the party's nomination. One of them, Sen. H. Alexander Smith of New Jersey, said In a separate Interview today that the statements of Taft and Eiscnhov/er indicate "that Republicans will present a united front once the Domlneo is selected." "There has been some loose talk about a pre-convenlion contest splitting the party," Smith said "I think this demonstrates thru whether Elsenhower or Tnft 1s the nominee, the party can nnd will te unified In the campaign." The 1950 campaign document put the party on record us wanting "to win lasting peace, to build n country In which every citizen may moke the most of his skill, initiative and enterprise, to hold aloft the Inspiring torch of American freedom, opportunity and justice, assuring better and happier life for all our people." Here in brief is what the statement aaid the party stands for: Consultation between the President and lenders of both parties In developing a "united American foreign policy." General reduction of taxes and federal speiin'itg, a stop to deficit nmlinfr nnd a return to a balanced budget. Strict enforcement of laws ayainst monopoly. A non-partisan commission stody to bring about a redistribution of governmental functions nnd sourc- of revenue between federal, state and local entitles. Fnlr prices for fanners aided by a system of price supports. Opposes Uranium Plan. Continuation of the Tuft-Hartley Act with Improvements shown to be needed. Legislation to protect tho rights of minorities. Federal aid to states for subsistence, .shelter nnd medical ec.rc for those in need, avoiding "fio- cin Illation" of the medical profession or of any other activity. Extension of tho coverage nnd benefits of old afje nnd survivors' insurance. Continuing and sympathetic consideration of the rights of veterans nd their dependents. Complete overhaul of the (?ov- rnment's loyalty and security hecks on federal personnel. Prompt elimination of all communists, fellow travelers uml communist sy nip utilizers from the federal payroll nnd closer coordination between intelligence agencies in weeding out the disloyal.

Reds Afraid to Use Germ Weapons After 15 Years AP MILITARY AMair* Reporter news conference tw denounced WASHINGTON !/H—The Conintu Communist charges that the nists have had germ weapons for it least 16 years, according to their own claims, but so far have not dared use them, even in their Korean aggression. A close and constant watch Is maintained by United States bi- oligica! warfare experts on the battlefront and rear areas in Ko- To date, there has been no evidence that the Reds either have used or have in the Korean War zone the equipment for bacteriological warfare IBW), a spokesman for Defense Department scientists said today. He disclosed, in answer to a reporter's question, that a report of a suspected bacteriological warfare plant in North Korea had proved unfounded. He said this is what happened: As United Nations forces pushed into North Korea In the offensive of late 1950 a report was received by headquarters that a laboratory ivus in the Pyongyang area. Troops Are Dispatched Alert to a possible attempt by Russia's satellite forces to moke a battlefield lest of BW, American authorities dispatched airborne troops (o seize the building: At the same time, biological experts were flown from U.S. headquarters in Tokyo to the scene. They found that it was indeed a laboratory of sorts—but that It was used only for public health and disease control. Nothing was found in the equipment or biological materials which could be used in of-1 fensive germ warfare. • The spokesman said up to now no other evidence lias been found of any immediate Communist preparation to use germ warfare in Korea. Keds Fear Retaliation Why Haven't the Communists resorted to microbe warfare? The answer, top American military men say, is that the United States is prepared to strike back \vith the same weapon in overwhelming power. Secretary of Defense Robert Lov- ctt pointed this up recently. In a United States had used both BW and toxic gas weapons in Korea as "abominable, malicious falsehood." He added that the Cominu- technique usually has been to charge someone else in advance with a crime the Communists propose to commit. Lovett left no doubt that the United States was ready to meet that kind of game. Behind his words stands a big BW laboratory plant in Maryland and a BW proving ground in Utah. To back up information obviously g!ca::2d from other sources showing that the Kremlin started preparation for germ warfare long ago, American officials cite speeches by Soviet officials. Among them is one made on Feb. 22, 1938, by Marshal Voro- shilov, at thai time Commissar of Defense. Vofoshilov said if toxin or bacterial weapons were used against the USSR "we are prepared and fully prepared to use them also and to use them against aggressors on their own soil." Americans Are Wary American officials arc wary of telling what Is known of Soviet preparations for BW because It would endanger intelligence sources and lives of agents. ' But there have been some hkiU from other sources. The aew«p»pe* Die Tat of Zurich. Switwrland carried an article last March on the Communist charges of biological warfare in Korea. Die Tat said: "A Russian expert who succeeded three years ago In escaping to Great Britain slates with all details that at Eupatoria (near Baku) at Bjerzinsk and Omsk, centers of bacteriological research have been established under the leadership of Professor Worenin." The United states has refrained from ratifying an agreement in which Russia is involved which would pledge non-use of toxic gases and bacteriological weapons. Benjamin V. Cohen. U.S. delegate, in an address last month before the United Nations' Disarmament Commission on Bacteriological Warfare, told why. "It would be sheer lunacy fon the free world to start disarming in exchange for mere paper promises without safeguards," he asserted. "Those who make false charges concerning the use of bacteriological warfare can Just as easily make false promises not to use bacteriological warfare."
