By JOHN M, HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON m —The question of whether the United States should underwrite the security of Southeast Asia—perhaps by sending In trcops If necessary—confronted tie administration today In the T*fcke of the Truman-Churchill conference. The issue of what the Western Powers and particularly the United State-* should do about possible Communist aggression In that area is high on the list of problems under discussion between Secretary ot State Acheson and British Foreign Secretary Eden, it was learned. Tomorrow it also will be taken up by military chiefs of the United States. .Britain and Prance in a three-power conference opening at the Pentagon.

Forces and French anrt native anti-Communist troops. In Malaya the British for several years have been Involved In a fight against Reds which British officials concede Is not going too well.

The" paper added, "The visit has done something to restore ntrtwl respect in the alliance of friendihls between the two nations, air Churchill has not, after all, had to be (oo conscious of his bink balance." Said the London Times: "It would be absurd to expect detailed Information about result* which may not In any case b« Men for many months. It Is enough tf they have reached genuine understanding and have revived «n atmosphere of friendship In which officials and ministers on both side* can continue to work on theee problems.
