WEDNESDAY, AUGUST • BLYTHEVniE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB Europe Needs U.S. Troop Aid To Build Up Sagging Spirits By PRESTON* GROVEK PARIS, Aug. 16. (AP—American officials in Prance are pressing Washington for a .solid promise of aid to Europe hi the form of U.S, troops to build up badly sagging West Eurpean spirits. Their proposals are double d-bar- ne — the United states should (fiver at once, or promise to tie- liver quickly, at least five more divisions on European soil. Two — a commander, preferably American, should be appointed to unify present undirected efforts at rearmament. The same officials believe Britain also should agree, now, to send fi/e more of its own divisions to Germany or northern France. The crisis in Korea has brought the American position in France to a low point. The first blush of gratification at American intervention in Korea has heen succeeded by a wave of dismay at U.S. reverses. The French long have expected the strength of American arms-especially the atom bomb—to pi'.'e them time to'get well from tt>e last war, and to rearm. America Is Determined Americans newly-arrived on ihis .side of the Atlantic report that the defeats in Korea have hardened American determination to re-evm and. if necessary, to be ready for a showdown with Russia. There has been no such reaction In Prance. Top French government officials arc facing the problem to a degree that generally is pica-sing to American observers. But a sampling of sentiment among the French population, brings no such re- Ig^iLse.s. ^The lack of a "will to fight," siich as resulted in the French collapse of 1940, is in evidence again. Many Frenchmen solemnly weigh these alternatives: Would another war be worse than simply to sit down and wait to be occupied by the Russians? yeulral Course Or would it be better to try to take a neutral course in the hope that Russia would not march into Frr-nce? It staggers Americans to hear Frenchmen they have known for a long time seriously weigh such considerations. It is even more staggering to hear so many Frenchmen give answers which, to Americans, sound like capitulation. The philosophy of "ait and wait" is widespread in Francs. The French appear to have lost confidence in aerial bombardment —even with the atom bomb—as a mea:is*,of stopping ground forces. TJfc Korean experiences have hclp- wffbring that, and the French eon- i «; ; • rewnnber how long it took United States to get into,the REDS' FOE — John Myun Chang.

M'i— Arkansas State Comptroller Lee Roy Beaslcy has cautioned against "padding" of budget requests. Beasley said some state agencies has uppcd their requests above amounts actually needed to allow for any cuts by the legislature. Anti-Religious Petitions VIENNA (Sfi —Petitions denonnc. ing "church renction" are being circulated throughout Hungary, according ot Catholic sources 1n Vienna, The petitions ask that all religious instruction be abolished in Hungarian .schools because "it poisons the soul of youth."
