BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS TOT DOMINANT NEWSPAPER Of NORTHEAS1 ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL. LI—NO. 20 Blythevllle Courier Blytbevllle Daily News Blytheville Herald Mississippi Valley Leader BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13, 1955 FOURTEEN PAGES Published Daily Except Sunday SINGLE COPY FIVE CENTS Adlai's Talk To Aid Ike, Experts Say Adds Impetus To Formosa Maneuvering By JOHN SCALI WASHINGTON (AP) — A number of foreign diplomats viewed Adlai E. Stevenson's Far Eastern speech today as giving President Eisenhower more room for diplomatic maneuvering toward a peaceful settlement in the Formosa Strait. State Department officials, taking their ,cue from Secretary Dulles, were guarded in their comments. But those willing to talk privately agreed the 1952 Democratic presidential nominee's address would give added impetus to diplomatic talks on the problem. Meanwhile, it was learned that the State Department has discussed with New Zealand the possibility of a new move within the United Nations. The idea, which apparently has now been shelved, would h;.ve New Zealand introduce in the U.N. Security Council a resolution to denounce the use of force in the Formosa area. Britain Against It In diplomatic talks, Britain reported to. have advised against any such move now. The British apparently felt any effort to revive U.N. consideration of the Formosa problem should wait until after next week's 28-nation Afro- Asian conference in Indonesia. The Formosa situation is expected to play a big role in these talks, with Red China and perhaps India leading attacks against the American policy of support for Nationalist China. In a nationally broadcast speech Monday night, Stevenson cautioned of the risks of American defense of Quemoy and Matsu without support oE U.S. allies. British, French and other foreign diplomats in the capital were reported generally encouraged by Stevenson's formula for avoiding hostilities over the rival Red Chinese and Nationalist claims to the offshore islands. None Would Say None would say, however, Whether their governments would agree to join the United States n declaring readiness to fight for Formosa, if Quemoy and Matsu were abandoned to the Reds as Stevenson suggested they might be under such conditions. A critical point in Stevenson's plan was whether (he Eisenhower administration would be willing to pay the price countries like Britain Atomic Weapon Exchange Gets Ike's Approval Proposal Calls for Information Trade With NATO Nations AUGUSTA, Ga.
