Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Bulganin's Peace Bid Aids NATO Session By the United Press Soviet Russia probably has strengthened the likelihood that the North Atlantic Treatj Organization meeting will be a success. In an attempt to sabotage the conference, Soviet Premier Nikolai A. Bulgaria has sent personal letters to the heads of govern- Jnent of the chief NATO allies and to "neutralist" Prime Minister Ja-waharlal Nehru of India. But the attempt is so obvious that it is pretty sure to backfire. Only a few days ago, the outlook for the big meeting which is to open in Paris Monday was grim. It looked as if President Eisenhower, the star member of the cast of Allied leaders, would be unable to attend, There was serious division between some NATO governments on a number of problems, both political and military. Outlook Brighter So many complicated and con troversial items seemed likely to arise that there was danger the entire confernc might bog down. The outtook for the conference became much brighter when it was announced that President Ei senhower would attend after all. • Even though he might have to .restrict his activities somewhat, Eisenhower is the outstanding fig. ure'in the NATO alliance. His mere presence will help. Another boost was given when Reading delegates of the chief Al"lied countries decided to go to ;Paris well before the start of the "meeting to hold private talks .among themselves. • These include Secretai-y of State ;John Foster Dulles, British Pre• ttiier Harold Macmillan and Chan- .'cellor Konrad Adenauer of West Germany. Nothing New With Premier Felix Gaillard of ; France, they will be able to take up a number of matters before • "the conference itself gets started. ! • There seems to b every reason '.to hop that thy may reach •agreements which will simplify "the situation. There seems to have been noth- '.ing in any of Bulganin's letters '.•that adds a thing to Russia's .known position on East - West is- •tues. Another bid for a "Big Four" meeting of the United States, Great Britain, France and Russia .. . disarmament "proposals" that would give no guarantee against Communist cheating under any agreement... an offer to suspend nuclear -weapons tests on Jan. 1, again without any safjguard against Russian cheatin* ... a warning to Adenauer against the ;stablishment of NATO missile bases on German territory. Bulganin and his 'colleague Nikita S. Khrushchev- must think ".hat the move is a smart one. But :it seems-to have fallen flat and to have increased instead of diminishing the prospect for success in Paris.
