PAGE TWO BLT1WEVILU! (ARK.V COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 19W Th« Nation Today: Cold Comfort on Peace— Acheson. Jars Hope For Quick Peace By James Marlow . WASHINGTON. March 17. W)— Anyone looking /or a quick peace with nnssla, or maybe any pence with Russia, sot an awakening from the tough, cold frjeech of Secretary of State Acheson yesterday at Berkeley Calif. I Looking at the critical relations between this country and Russia, Acheson examined the philosophy of the Sov'et leaders, condemned It, and did three specific things: '! 1. He denounced their tactics. J 2. He denounced their alms. ; 3. And he laid down seven points which, If agreed to by the men In the Kremlin, would mean a Soviet surrender without firing a shot. ' Yet those seven points were listed by Acheson as steps the Soviets should take if they want to have peace. | - Warned About Hopes ! When he had finished listing them, Acheson gave a flat warning to everyone not to get any false hopes about pence. ,' He made it clear that before this country sticks Its neck out the Russian leaders will have to make agreements that are nailed down solid. r He said: "We" ore'always ready to discuss, to - negotiate, to agree, but'we are, understandably loath to play the role of International sucker." , ; And he added: "I see no evidence that the Soviet leaders will change their conduct until the progress of the free world convinces them that they cannot profit from a continuation of these tensions. . . ' "We want peace but not at any price. . . we must recoenlze that our ability to achieve our purposes cannot rest alone on a desire for peace, but that It must be supported by the strength to meet whatever tasks providence may have In store for iis." j Examples Are Cited : Acheson cited- as examples of the things he thinks the Soviet .leaders should :do to show they mean well, some of the very situations In which the Russians have stood most firmly Against us." • x : He mentioned the differences between this. country and Russia on a peace settlement for Germany, Austria, Japan; he suggested the (Soviets withdraw their troops and police from satellite areas; he said they should stop being bottlenecks In the United Nations; they ought to agree to the plan, agreed to by the United States, for control:of atomic energy. i (But hi each of those cases the •tand already taken by the Russians Is part of their general policy.) . Further, he suggested the Kremlin should stop trying to use the Communist Parties which It controls In'other countries as-aimenns of undermining and .overthrowing the governments of those countries. i (But If the Kremlin divorced Itself ., from Communist Parties In other countries It would stand alone, which Is exactly what the Russians don't want to do and exactly why they control foreign Communist parties.) . Propaganda ITalt Asked '- And Acheso'n*even suggested the Russians should stop pumping Into their own people propaganda against other nations, particularly the United States. ' (But this anti-western propaganda Is one of the techniques by which the Kremlin tries to keep the Russian people to line, by appealing to their Russian nationalism and painting the rest of the world as »n enemy.) . He didn't 'rule out the possibility that Communism and Capitalism can live peacefully In the same world, but— ; Whether they can live side by side, Acheson said, depends on the Soviet leaders. He said: 1 "The United States. Is ready, as It has Iceland always will be. to cooperate in genuine efforts to find peaceful settlements. But It takes more than one to cooperate, if the Work on Armorel Cafeteria To Start Monday Weather permitting, work on Ar- rnorel High School's new S5G.OOO combination gymnasium and cafeteria is expected to begin Monday. R. W. Nichols, superintendent of Armorel schools has announced. . Pride and Usrey Construction Cnmpany of Blythevile have been I awarded the contract for construe- ' tlon of the brick and tile building which will house bot'i the gym and cafeteria. The school at present has neither a gym nor a cafeteria. • Mr. Nichols said construction Is [ to be completed by the beginning I of the 1950-51 school term In September. U. S. Branson, Blythcvlllc architect, drew plans for the building. Soviet Union could Join In doing these things I have outlined, we could all fact the future with greater security." But, he said, no one can be very hopeful about "reaching agreements In which reliance can be placed and which will be observed by the Soviet leaders in good faith." FDR's Letters Are Placed in Public Library HYDE PARK, N.Y., March 17. (/I) —President Franklin D. Hoosevelt kept a copy of almost every letter he wrote, nnd almost every letter he received after he began his political climb. Today more than 5,000,000 of these letters became public properly — a mirror to one of the vital ears of world history. Brief ceremonies marked the event at the Fr.inklln D. Roosevelt library here. It took two and n half years to index the papers. There are letters to kings and to high and low-born men whose names are marked forever in history. And there are humble letters, the voice of the average American ns he took pen In hand and wrote to tne White House during Mr. Roosevelt's 12 years In office. About 85 per cent of all the letters became public property. The rest wore withheld for another 25 years. They might embarrass persons still olive, or might affect our relations with other nations. The letters are in boxes which fill the shelves lining four rooms of the federal library. Confidential letters are marked by red folders. The papers will- not be available to the general public, Only accredited scholars and researchers will have access to them.

W)_ Ingrid Bergman Is coming back to the United States and her husband, Dr. peter Undstrom, Is preparing to meet her head on In the light for custody of their 12-year- old daughter Pla. It will be the first fact-to-racc showdown between the couple since the actress went to Stromboll, fell In love with Roberto Hossclllnl and had a child by him. The stage for a tense courtroom drama was set yesterday ns: 1. Miss Bergman's attorney, Gregson Baiitzcr, said the actress will be a witness when the case comes to trial, will leave Italy as soon as the trial date Is set, and "Is determined to make the fight of her life for Pla." Mndstrom Breaks Silence 2. Dr. Undstrom, the quiet brain surgeon, finally came out swinging with announcement, through counsel, that he will charge Ingrld unfit to have custody of the child. Moreover, the Swedish doctor will counter with a demand for a divorce here. Ilia attorney, Isanc Pacht, termed the Mexican divorce which Miss Bergman obtained Feb. 9 "a complete nullity—Mexico having Jurisdiction over neither Miss Bergman nor Dr. Lindstrom." Pacht Knld Dr. Undstrom was ready to give a complete accounting of community property as requested in his wife's suit and would demand "an equitable distribution among the wife and the daughter." The actress also was faced with the possibility of having to battle to re-enter the country.' In Washington, Sen. Edwin C. Johnson ID- Colo) put a letter In the Senate record saying neither Miss Bergman or llossellini should be per- mittc'l t enter the U. S. , TV Ban Urged Johnson, he a.I of the Senate Commerce Committee, wrote to chairman Wayne Coy of the Federal Communication Commission, urging that the actress and her Italian director-lover be barred from American television ss "im- moral characters." The senator mentioned a columnist's report that Bergman and nos- selllni planned to make a scries of films for telecasting. He expressed hope the stations themselves would deal with this "brazen threat," but hinted FCC or Congressional action might be necessary. ; "Since both of these alien characters are guilty of moral turpitude, they cannot set foot on American soil under i\ir Immigration laws," sold Sen. Johnson. After months of tight-lipped silence. Dr. Lindstrom posed for photographers and even kidded with reporters yesterday In his lawyer's office. While refusing to discuss the case, he lodded approval as Pacht said: "We are certainly going to assert that Miss Bergman Is not a proper person to nave- custody of this child. We will show that Dr. Lindstrom, by his action and conduct In this matter, is the proper person to have the child." G . • i f. _. _ . _ Utah enacted a law In 1921 to pro- .
