PAGB TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MARCH IT, 1955 W/iaf Now in Yalta Issue? Nothing But More Talk, Argument By JAMES MABLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — What happens now that the Yalta papers have finally been made public? More talk. That's all There's not much new in them. The main points in the Yalta agreements have been known for years. Politicians, Democrats and Republicans, will argue about Yalta, ns they have for a-decade. The papers may have an influence on the 1956 elections. But that's doubtful simply because the main points have been long known and discussed. Russia broke agreements made at Yalta among President Roosevelt. Prime Minister Churchill and Premier Stalin. That was 10 years ago. The United States can't undo the damage done by Russia except by going to war. For example: Russia agreed to let the East Europeans have free governments but then enslaved them: .it agreed to deal with Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist Chinese but let the Red Chinese have captured Japanese weapons to conquer Chiang. Nothing- But Talk Without fighting Russia, the United States can't liberate Eastern Europe. Without, fighting Red China, it can't restore Chiang. Since the United States has no intention of doing either, there's nothing left but talk. The Eisenhower administration could try to repudiate the Yalta agreements. But there are two good reasons to think twice before doing it: Such a repudiation, since it couldn't mend the broken agreements, would be a gesture only; and if Roosevelt's agreements were repudiated now, how could any nation ever expect any agreement by a future president to stand? President Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles probably had both thoughts in mind when they took office In 1053. They didn't recommend repudiation. They simply asked Congress to condemn Russia for bad faith. The Republican-run Congress then did nothing. Even if Eisenhower now asked for repudiation, :he present Congress, run by Democrats, would certainly turn him down. To do otherwise r ould be to repudiate a Democratic president, Roosevelt. 3 Main Agreements There were three main agreements at the wartime Yalta con'erence: (1) cooperation among the Big Three in crushing Germany; (2) cooperation in creating free ;overnments in Eastern Europe; _,nd (3) Russia's promise, after getting concessions in Asia, to gel into the war against Japan. Roosevelt had the advice of his military leaders in wanting Russia to help end the Japanese war fast. Russia did get in, only five days before Japan Quit. Ever since Republicans have criticized Roosevelt for acting, as their 1952 platform said, "without the knowledge or consent of Congress or of the American people." The Democrats have argued he TROUBLE-SHOOTER - Everett Holies, former CBS news analyst, has been hired as a personal assistant by Adm. Lewis Strauss, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission.

Bizzell of West Memphis ,/as guest speaker at the Methodist Church Sunday in Luxora, did what he thought was best and that the agreements were good, if the Russians had lived up to them. Roosevelt certainly did not reveal the whole story when he returned from Yalta. In a report to Congress in March 1945, he mentioned only the agreements on Germany, the United Nations and Eastern Europe. It was understandable, for wartime reasons, that he did not speak of agreements on Asia and the Pacific war. But he went far beyond, telling Congress: "Quite naturally the Crimea (Yalta) conference concerned itself only with the European war and with the political problems of Europe—and not with the Pacific war."
