(UP)— Russia and other old world nations were left today with an American challenge to copy the 19 Western Hemisphere countries and submerge their differences in the interests of peace. Secretary of State George C. Marshall and Senate President Arthur H. Vandenberg sounded thc challenge in a joint radio broadcast las', night. They agreed wholeheartedly that the just-conciudcd Rio clc Janeiro delensc parley proved thai goodwill is the key to Iriendly global relations. But they also made plain— through innuendo—their belie! that Russia is responsible for the present grim stalemale in world affairs through Ihc "paralyzing veto." propaganda. . misrepresentations, ulterior motives, i and "watered down" compromise ' formulas. To Marshall and Vandenberg. who have spenl weeks around the conference table with the Russians, the InlerAinerican conference was a welcome change of pace. They left no doubt at their pleasure in finding lhat 19 nations "in an atmosphere of good will, good feeling and mutual trusl and accord" could draft a pole-to-polc defense pact in 13 days'. .Marshall said thc Rio conference was "the mof»t encouraging, thc most stimulating international action" since thc enii of World War II; -'one international development in -A world sadly in need of such encouragement." Vandenberg: said it was "a mile- sUine on Incalculable importance upon the high road to a happier and safer world...u tremendously significant and progressive pattern for others to follow...this is sunlight in a dark world." Marshall said the conference demonstrated "that where nations are sincerely desirous of promoting the peace and well being of the world, it can b; done." And, he added, "it can be done' witnout frustrating delays and without much of con 7 losing nno" .disturbing propaganda that has attended our efforts 01 the past two years." In another aside to thc Kremlin, both men strongly urged that no nation even attempt to interpret the Rio agreement r,s a slap at the one-world principles of the United Nations, or as any kind of an armed alliance by the new world against finy power or group ot powers. •"It will not be easy to misrepresent the import ol the treaty we have agreed upon at Rio de Janeiro, for its text is straightforward ar,:l clear," Marshall said. Said Vandenberg at this point: '"Nothing that \vc have clone is aimed at any other enemies Ulan war-:ind aggression and injustice, Ihe three deadly fites of civiliiert mankind. Ir there should he those who suspect us ol ulterior motives they will merely conlJEs Ihrir OTMI." Vanclctibcrg. top foreign policy spokesman tor tho Republican Party, paid tribute to thc Rio pact as Ihc product or bi-p.ulisan cooperation. He salt! he would present :t lo Ihe Senate for ratification "with every confidence" that it would gain approval. • Vandenbcrg devoted most or his lime in the joint broadcast to outlining the aims and contents or thc new Western Hemisphere defense treaty, which pledges Ihc American republics to concerted action against aggression. Marshall, for his part, hammered on thc broad principles or cooperation contained in thc Rio pact and their implication.-, for other world nations still struggling for j a secure peace. "None of the 10 (American) n.i- tions sought to impose its will •>!! Ihe. others." he said. "Agreeinen'- was reached on a voluntary basis, each nation manifesting it.s will to adjust its own position to that of the other; out of respect for tho opinion of the majority. "No nation trumipned over any (or this war, nol a contest between nations bu: a 'get-together' among them. And yet. there .'c- sullcd no watered down formula- no lowest common denominator of compromise on vital principles." Work is Recommended To Britain as a Cure For Her Economic Ills LITTLE ROCK.

Creedon acted after disclosure that some of the unw, powerful rent boards include not a single tenant member. One was made up of four real estate men ami a lawyer. The naticn's rent boss said he was taking another look at oil boards set up so far. Those thai don't fairly represent both landlord and tenant, he warned, must l>s revamped. Under the rent control law that became effective July 1 local boards of at least five "representative" citizens get substantial authority in raising or eliminating local ceilings. Board actions arc subject to veto by Creedon but hi; has indicated most will get his okay. Thus board makeup is highly important, both to owners and renters. Creedon has the filial say-sD about board membership. Members are nominated, ho.\\oveix by st^te goy- "liltle people." Mr. Paulus iKiinted out lhat "word-of mouth publicity will piny a large part in fixing the standing of this community.
