PAGE TWO BLTTmEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAT, APRIL 25, 1955 Publishers Express Faith in Handling Of Formosa Problem NEW YORK (AP) — A number of (he nation's leading publishers interviewed here yesterday say they have faith in President Eisenhower's handling of the Formosa crisis. The publishers also snld, they be-* lieve the United State* should not become involved in a war over the offshore islands of Queinoy and Matsu. Some publishers, however, advised a "tough stand" on the issue. A majority of the publishers said they favor talks with the Chinese Communists on the Par Eastern crisis but advised caution, The publishers were interviewed by the New York Times and the New York Herald Tribune aa they arrived for Newipaper Week, which opens today. Most of, the publishers reported a continuing popularity ol President Eisenhower In their respective areas and a healthy economic picture. Most of the publishers interviewed on the Issue felt that former President Truman's remark that the press had given the El- senhower administration a "cloik of protection" was without bnsis. On the Formosa crisis, some of the publishers offered these views: Palmer Hoyl, publisher of the Denver Post—We take a dJm view of any cavalier defense of Qucmoy and Matsu. There Is considerable wonderment about them. We wonder how important they are, but trust in Ike's judgment. William Block, publisher of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette—My personal opinion is that Quemoy and Matsu are not strategic to either Formosa or the United States. The only reason for defending them i« to keep the free world from falling back. I endorse Sen. George's speech .suggesting that we sit down and talk with our allies and then with Chou. But we ought to gel concessions on the American prisoners In China before, we talk." Norman Chandler, president of the Los Angeles Times, suld it was "sound and proper" to talk with the Chinese Communists. George T. Cameron, publisher of the San Francisco Chronicle, siilcl he Is in favor of a conference with the Red Chinese but added he personally docs not think It would "get anywhere." John S. Knight, president of the Knight Newspapers that Include newspapers in Akron, Miami. Detroit, Chicago and Charlotte, N.C.. •aid he doubts that a war will break out in the Far East. ' "I think the President is handling the situation with great wisdom. I don't agree with those who •ay he ought to dnfine what he IB going to do sharply for everyone to know, because on certain delicate situations you have to play ft. little bit by ear," he said.
