WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3T, 1955 BLTTHET1LLE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS PAGEfTVt State Department Tore Pants In Red China Reply By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department tore its pants again — this time on one word, "discussion" — and quickly did an about-face. Secretary of State Dulles applied the patches, with Red China watching. The department was just recovering from two embarrassing situations into which it got its self leaking the Yalta papers and firing Edward Corsi, recently hired immigration adviser. Suddenly on Saturday the department was confronted with one of the most sensational developments of 1955: Bed China offered to talk peace. Neither President Eisenhower nor Secretary of State Dulles was in town. Both men had hoped mightily for i cease-fire with the Communists but Eisenhower "was at his farm near Gettysburg, Pa., and Dulles was resting at his vacation home on an island in Lake Ontario. Talked With Ike Herbert Hoover Jr., acting secretary of state, talked by phone with Eisenhower for an hour. It would seem that on anything as important as Red China's proposal, the department would take time to consider all angles. But It promptly issued a statement. This statement could have said, the United states, while welcoming peaceful suggestions, would like to know a little more 'of what Red China had in mind. That would have left the next move to Red China. The Communists had said they wanted to talk of "relaxing tension in the Formosa area." That could mean talking about a cease- fire in the area. It did not necessarily mean the Reds wanted to talk about getting Formosa. They claim Formosa. But the United States is bound by treaty with Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalis Couldn't Stand Wife's Suffering, Man Kills Her BELLEFONTE, Pa., (IP] —A retired contractor who said he couldn't bear to see his 12-year- old wife suffer shot her to death in her hospital room yesterday and then attempted suicide.

Instead of waiting to find out precisely what the Reds had in mind, the department's statement said: This country would not take part in "any discussion concerning" the Formosa area unless the Nationalists sat in. That seemed to mean there could not even be a cease- fire talk without Chiang. Bad Reaction The statement got a bad reaction among Asians, even those who had been most critical of Red China. Then early yesterday Sen. George (D-Ga), who sometimes seems to be trying to give the Eisenhower administration a sense of direction in foreign affairs, spoke out. 'He said' there could "be cease- fire talks with Red China without Nationalist China. A few hours after George's views were known, Dulles, back from his rest, told a news conference there could be cease-fire talks without the presence of Chiang. But what about that Saturday statement of the department which said. Chiang would have o sit in on any "discussion concerning" the Formosa area? Dulles replied that the statement had said this country would not discuss a "disposal" of the Formosa area. But he was wrong. Chiang, the American ally, could naturally be expected to sit in on i , KEEP IT QUIET—This pretty young lady finds the world's largest "quiet" room a perfect place to take a break from hex work.
