THE SUNDAY LOGANSPORT PUBLIC ! IPRARY LOGANSPORT PRESS ALL PHONES 4141 UNITED PHESS LOGANSPORT, INDIANA, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 195 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PRICE TEN CENTi US-BRITAIN MOVE TO STOP SPACE COMMIES Alliance Of 50 Nations Is Planned LONDON Wi—The United Stales and Britain Saturday night were reported shaping up plans -for bandin? together about SO nations in a worldwide campaign to block the spread of space-age communism. Senior diplomats here said this proposed new global diplomatic strategy would be charted on a long range assumption — on the possibility that the Soviet Union could prolong the. cold, war until the next century. The United States and Britain evidently hope to align like-minded countries under the umbrella of their nuclear power, the in- form'ants said, and to win pledges from them that they will cooperate in political, economic and •military efforts to beat Russia's Sputnik-paced challenge. In the world girdling hookup, at least four regional defensive alliances would be jointed, they are the 15-nation Atlantic Pact, the 5- nation Baghdad Pact, the 8-member Southeast Asian Treaty Organization and the 21-state Pan American Alliance. But the diplomats insisted there is no intention to set up any formal new, 50-membcr treaty spelling out the commitments of the powers. Even the idea of a conference of the 50 - odd countries with which the United States has treaties has been rejected. That is because Washington and London want to avoid any suggestion that they are trying' to build up a rival to the U. N., the informants said. The idea instead is to draw all the West's regional groupings together, to create continuing liaison machinery between them and to pull in other friendly states which do not belong to any formal alliance.

Byrd, (D-Va), said Saturday the nation can pour an additional two billion dollars into missile >!e.~!o> ment without unbalancing the budget if President Eisenhower will cut "nonessential" domestic spending. Byrd, chief spokesman for congressional economy advocates, voiced the opinion in an interview that "Congress will be anxious and willing to increase any appropriation that will be necessary" lo put this country into the lead over Russia in space* weapons." "If it is. necessary to appropriate, an additional two billion dollars to get this program 'going full blast, I am sure Congress will do what it is asked lo do in that particular field," Byrd said. "The additional expenditures would not have to unbalance the would just follow the pattern of appropriations reductions made by Congress and reduce spending in some nonessential domestic fields."
