BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWg FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 19M Ikes Policy On Islands Defended (Continued from Page » lawmaker: 1. Called anew for a top level conference of the United States, Great Britain and France with the Soviet Union. He declRred he still believes "a high level conference among the chiefs of state might be productive of much good. I rim not a defeatist." 2. Declared a "desperate situation does exist in China, but perhaps it is most acute in Viet Nam (in Southeast Asia) rather than in the Formosa Strait." 3. Envisioned what he called the good possibility that Communist China will launch an attack against Formosa and the off-shore islands of Quemoy and Matsu simultaneously, instead of trying to conquer Quemoy and Matsu first. 4. Said the United Slates has come 'very close" to over-committing itself around the world. And he said "the greatest mistake any nation can make is to over-commit Itself." 5. Acknowledged that the Democratic administrations " made «ome mistakes" of policy during and after World War H. and he jibed at the Republicans for talking about them on Uie basis of the Yalta papers made public last month. His Mistake 8. Declared "the greatest mistake" made after World War II was "unquestionably the mistake we made with respect to our friend the enemy, Soviet Russia." He added that Uie United States mistakenly assumed that "Russia was actuated by Uie same motives which dominated our lives." Jh discussing Quemoy and Matsu George said he would not hesitate Ib call for a statement of U.S. intentions if he thought It would Advance the case of peace. But, he asked "how can it advance th« cause of pence to ad- TlM your tnemles?" he added; "We Me disposed to fall Into tb« grievious error of making a football of politics with respect to m declaration or nondcclaratlon by our country over these off-shore Man*." At anther point he declared; "What good purpose can result Irom throwing into American pol- Hlo» a decision on defense of these Mauds?" ID advance of his speech George told newsmen he Intended to suy nothing new on foreign policy because he did not want to give anyone the Impression he—just from a meeting with Eisenhower—might be reflecting the President's views. SOVIET (Continued from Page 1) present, including U.S. Ambassador Charles E. Bohlen, British Ambassador Sir William Hayter and French Charge d'Affaires Jean LeRoy. The Soviet Austrian-agreement was the fruit of three days' Intensive bargaining between Molotov, Raab and their aides. Word received in London, Vienna and other Western capitals said the Russians had also agreed to these modifications of the 1H4!) draft treaty for Austrian independence: 1. Easing nf Soviet oil claims. Austria's Zlsterdorf nil fields- Russia's second biggest nil source off home ground—put out more than three million tons of oil year alone. Under the new (iRreo- ment Russian reportedly would receive an undisclosed oil yield for six years. 2. Renunciation of Soviet claims to assets of the Danube Steamship Co. in East Austria. 3. Russian agreement to accept 150 million dollars in poods as war reparations from Austria. The original draft called on Austria to hand over 150 million dollars cash to buy back about 300 industrial concerns producing SO per cent of Hit* Soviet zone's outpta. The Western powers renounced all' reparations claims on Austria long tiffo, treating it as a liberated country rather than as a defeated enemy. • Commodity And Stock Markets— N«w York C*tt«H (U:M «»ot«U.M) Vluy 3351 3352 3342 3342 July 3371 3376 3367 3303 Oct 3391) 3400 3396 3400 Dec 3407 3408 3403 3407 Ortoani Cotton May .1347 3348 3344 3344 July 33f>9 3370 3368 3370 Oct 3397 3388 3396 3398 Deo 3406 3408 3406 3408 Chicago Corn May .... 144 145% 143% 145 uly .... 146'/, 147% 148 14T/» Chicago Soybeans Uuy .... 24814 24»'/i 247!/ 2 240 uly .... 23H 230'/, 238 238 : !ii ept .... 230'/ 2 231'/ 2 230'A 230 : '4 Nov 228% 229 228 228% Chicago Wheat lay .... 20814 208 : 'i, 207',i 207% uly .... 19214 192% 101% 182'/., >lew York Stocks T and T .rner Tnbstcco .iincondu Copper ..
