WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 195S BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Chinese Reds Not Only Ones Guessing About US' Plans By JAMES MAKLOW V Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — The Eisenhower administration is keeping everybody guessing — not just the Red Chinese — on win* it will do if the Communists attack the Quemoy and Matsu islands now held by Chiang Kai- *Mc. The administration itself may be guessing right now. Secretary of State Dulles 1 nationwide talk last night can be interpreted as saying President Eisenhower still hasn't made up his mind. Dulles, when he spoke of the President's decision on defending the islands, put it in the future tense. Eisenhower and Dulles have persistently avoided flat statements about the islands. They are close to the Red China coast. Chiang's main forces are on Formosa and the Pescadores Islands, more than 100 miles offshore. Pledged (o Defense The United States—by a treaty with Chiang and by a special resolution passed by Congress — Ls pledged to defend Formosa and the Pescadores from Red Chinese attack. But this country is not pledged to defend any other Chiang-held Islands. The President can suit himself about them, depending on whether he thinks they are necessary to the defense of Formosa and the Pescadores. Dulles said the "President will decide. In the light of his judgment •a to the over-all value of certain coastal positions to the defense of Formosa, rind the cost of holding thse positins." In 'a policy speech Feb. 17. Dulles didn't say yes or no about the offshore islands. And yesterday when the Senate Foreign Relations Committee tried to pin him down, it was reported^ he referred back to the February speech. Secretary of Defense Wilson, at a news conference yesterday, said Eisenhower is the only one who can "clarify our intentions or BULLET RADIO - A radio transmitter small enough to fit in the nose of a 20-mm. shell has been developed by the U.

Mr. Holsclaw, a native ol Hornersville, Mo., has lived in Manila for 55 years. Mrs. Holsclaw was born in Cinda, a mile north of the present city of Manila. He is 71. Mrs. Holsclaw Is 65. They have four children, fifteen grandchildren, and four great- grandchildren. The anniversary dinner was served from a table they purchased on their wedding day. plans." Dulles Concerned But Dulles appears concerned that the people of Asia may submit to the Bed Chinese If they feel the United States' is talking big and doesn't back it up. On Peb. 17 he said a great "danger ih Asia Is the fear of the many non-Communist people* that the United States has no real Intention of standing firmly behind them." . Last night, two days after returning from Asia, he said the people of the western Pacific and Southeast Asia will "quickly lose their freedom if they think that our love of peace means peace 'at any price." Why then, If the administration has decided to defend Chiang's offshore islands from Bed attack, doesn't it say so? This la an empty question since no one can be sure any decision at all has been made. If the Reds are kept guessing, they may not attack. As long as this country doesn't say It will defend the Island.s, It could trade them to the Reds—Chiang could hardly veto that since he depends on the United States—If the Communists would agree to a cease- fire. Maybe that's the answer. Read Courier News Classified Ad«.
