FRIDAY, SEPT. 26, '1952 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Reefs to Fire Opening Barrages Of Gigantic Peace Offensive By WILLIAM I,. RVAS* AI" Foreign News Analyst Opening barrages of a gigantic world Communist peace offensive will be fired this week end. The thunder of the propaganda guns will mark the first phase of a new Soviet tactical assault on the United states. of, For about 30 countries — those in Asia and those such as Canada and Latin America bordering the Pacific — delegates have assembled in Peiping, capital of Communist China, to do the bidding of the Moscow-T'eiptng axis in this latest campaign. The countries "represented 11 by (he Communist - inspired delegates have a population of more than a billion and a half people and cover two-thirds of the earth's surface. IMans .Marie In July Plans for this assault were concocted in July, under Soviet guidance, at the conference of the Communist World Council of Peace in Berlin. The Peiping meeting is a curtain raiser to the mighty peace offensive which reaches Its climax Dec. 5 In Vienna with a world congress. There is little doubt that the offensive is tied in with the decision of Moscow to summon an All-Union Congress of the Soviet Communist party Oct. 5, the first such congress In 13 years. The major attack is in Asia. One goal is the expulsion of American Influence through damage to (y'American prestige. The ultimate goal Is Communist domination of all Asia, But the Communist appetite will not even be satisfied _ with that. In the future are plans for domination of the Middle East, Africa and South and Central America. Much Noise Expected Here is what will take place In Peiplng, under much noise. The "Congress of Partisans in Defense of Peace in Asia and the Countries of the Pacific Ocean"— the mouihful title of this meeting- will dutifully adopt resolutions ns follows: 1.

There will be other resolutions, too, dealing with such matters as Indian-Pakistani relations, j national independence of countries [in North Africa and the Middle : East, against remilitarization of Western Germany nnd for a united Germany, anrl so on. Warning (o IVest The presence of large delegations from Latin America can be , rcfinrrlcct as a clear warning to : the WcM. ! Tlie Pciping news agency announces that delegations will be present from Mexico. Guatemala, Colombia. Salvador, Honduras Chile, Pent, Ecuador nnd Panama. The work of the peace congress is cut and dried. It ba.s been decided well in advance, and the dupes present will be led about by the nose by the Communist manipulators of the sessions. The Communists are going to squeeze out every ounce of propaganda from this effort. In Moscow, the Soviet Union will use its party congress to announce that the USSR wants only peace and the right to build socialism. There will be a crashing crescendo of Soviet propaganda all through tills fall and winter. The West has been forewarned in time to plan ifs counter-attack.

STEVENSON • (Continued from Page 1) not have afforded otherwise to give up better pnylnij private positions, nave boon drawn Into state jous. Top Republicans—Including Sen fiieh.ird M. Nixon, the OOP vice presidential nominee — keep Insisting? Hint isn't enough explanation and the public has a right to more. Nixon has-been on the spot himself lor accepting and spending an $18.000 fund dc.iated by California political friends to help him meet expenses. Stevenson said last, week it was up to the Republican parly to bring out who gave the money, whether it influenced Nixon's actions ns a senator, and whether any laws were broken. Since then. Stevenson has been as quiet about the Nixon affair as he has on details about his own fund, nut late yesterday be told Wyatt to relay to newsmen a promise of some further statement on the Illinois fund. * Wyalt did It at n news conference which he devoted mainly to outlining the Democratic nominee's traveling speaking plans for the weeks remaining before Ihe November election. Wyatt said Dial he did not know when the governor would issue a .statement about the pay-supplementing fund. Between now and Oct. 18 Stevenson will fly into 11 states In the West. Midwest and South. There will be appearances in more than 35 cities for speeches ranging from (he whistle stop variety to a dozen major addresses. Instead of one continuous campaign expedition, the next phase of the Democrafic presidential drive will be split into a series of hops out of Stevenson's home at Springfield, III, They will be of from two to five days each. For today, the schedule called for a Stevenson speech at Evansville. Ind., in the early afternoon and a major address on economy in government at Indianapolis tonight. Something more than 13 electoral votes are at stake in Indiana, where a hot Senate race pits Jenner against the present Democratic governor of the state, Henry F Schricker. Schrickcr is a close friend of Stevenson. It was he who placed Stevenson's name In nomination at the Democratic National Convention, Jenner Is a controversial figure who has denounced Gen. George C. Marshall, whom Eisenhower has defended as a great patriot. Jcnner also has attacked various parts of America's foreign policy which Eisenhower supports. But Eisenhower and Jenner have campaigned side by side in Indiana, and the general has urged Hoosier voters to spare no effort to elect (he entire Republican ticket — Jenner included. Stevenson aides said that as a result it seemed to be a good bet that the Illinois governor would expand what he has said several times before — that Eisenhower has adopted a "dangerous" theory of supporting all candidates of the BOP — good, bad or indifferent — regardless of their views end records. Stevenson has said that for his part he will not place party regularity above political ethics, even at the risk of losing the election, because "victory can be bought too dearly." Remarks such as those have been directed at Elsenhower's support of both Jenner and Sen Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin. Dcmocrallo campaign schedules from here on In appear to be based on a strategy of trying to sew up the South and border slates and adding to them the necessary key states In the North, Midwest and West to get (he 206 electoral votes needed to win on Nov. 4. Stevenson already has been in Virginia and Afaryland. He visits Kentucky tomorrow. And he will turn up in Oklahoma, Texas Missouri. Louisiana. Florida and Tennessee before the campaign Is over. Of the 11 southern and live border states, only Maryland went Republican in 19-18. But Texas, Lou- island, Florida and Virginia arc considered battle ground states this year, with Texas and Louisiana particularly in doubt. If Stevenson can hold Dixie and all Ihe border belt but Maryland, he will have a nucleus of ns electoral votes—just 91 short of requirements for victory. Those 91 votes could be picked up by carrying a mere handful of key states in other areas. That seems to be behind the heavy emphasis (he Democrats are jilficing on California (32 votes I, Illinois <27>. Ohio i25l, Michigan 1201. nncl New York (45P.

PAGE m» ACHESON Little Rock Man Talks To Club Bob Blonnt, secretary of the Little Rock ToMtmasters Club, wns a guest and speaker when the Blythe- vllle Toastmastcrs Club met last night. Mr. Blount told the club of activities of the Little Hock organization. Speaking lost night were William Ernest McKenzie and Gilbert Smythe. Guests at the meeting included H. B. Richardson, Bill Walker, Keith Bilbrey, LeRoy Morris and Jack Jordan. (Continued from Page 1) beginning with the charge (hat Eisenhower's account "tortures the facts." He adder! "It says thlncs I didn't say and omits tilings I did say." One of the points Achostm stressed was that Ihe 'Wcnse perimeter" he described was on which the United Stales would • de- lend alone" if necessary. Ho also stated emphatically that ho did not exclude Korea or any other area and .said lie found it impossible to believe that Kisenhowor would have had him Include Korea. 'It was a line developed by our military authorities at that lime,' Anhcson asserted. "I cannnt believe Gen. Eisenhower now means to imply (imt Korea should have liren included by me within the defensive perimeter unit thai it should have bcc-n manned by American irnops. "Crnnlnly, as chief of staff of Ihe Army, his opinion was quite to the contrary ami wholly in nc- li'orrtiinro with the statement I I made." U'lK'n a reporter subseriiiently asked whether Gen. Douglas Mac- Arllmr, former U. S. and Allied | commander in the Par East had Ihelpt-tl dr.isv ihe line. Acheson said "t was a matter decided by Ihe military. He added he tholKh! his questioner could find quotations j from MacArthur on the perimeter exactly ns Achesmi had described Acheson snld that he was dls- ousslnp the Eisenhower, attack on bis views not only because he dislikes "bclns misquoted" but also because he wanted to make clear two points "which are essential lo an understanding of our foreign policy." The first, he said, was concerned wi!h defining the concept of the Pacific defense perimeter as a line developed by military authorities as representing those areas wllich the United States would defend alone it necessary and man with Its own troops. The second point Acheson soufjht to emphasize was his view that the defense of the nations of Asia— which he hart defined in his statement today ns covering places like Indochina, Tahllanrt, Burma, Pakistan ami India as well as Korea —was not "the responsibility which it was just or wise or possible for the United States to bear alone." "Instcnd," Acheson said, "I stated that the defense" of these nations of Asia against aggression lay properly first with themselves and then with the commitments of the entire civilized world under the charter of the United Nations " Cub Scout Pack Visits B/ytfievfJ/e Postoffice Thirty-two members of Cub Scout Pack 223 visited Blytheville's Post Office yesterday.
