THEDOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF HORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SQUTHEASTMISSOUHI B1ATHKVILLK, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, 'NOVKMBKR United Nations Starts f)iplomatic Offensive By STANLEY JOHNSON LAKE SUCCESS, Nov._13. (AP)-The United Nations mounted a llu'ec-pnnijjecl dip- omaUc offensive today, seeking to neutralize Communist China and to prevent Ihe Korean Campaign from exploding into World War III. »eniine isoicdii One the eve of the; departure from Pei ping of a Red delegation to the Security Council, diplomats moved swiitly to keep the war localised. o«.mii.y <^iuii The basic strategy was to reassure *Chinese Communist leaders that U.N. forces had no designs on their territory, would not interfere with China's supply of electric power from North Korean dams and would build a united, democratic, independ- denl Korea 'which would ' present no threat to China. This was* combined with a clear warning, however, that continued Red Chinese intervention in Korea would lead to drastic action. As though to point up tnese efforts, a spokesman at Gen. MacAr- ithur's Tokyo headquarters nn- tiounced that the current Allied push toward the Yalu River is just a "limited offensive." Informed observers here considered this indicated that the U.N. military command also was tread- Ing gingerly, hoping to win. a decisive victory over the North Koreans while giving the Chinese an opportunity to withdraw with a minimum loss of (ace. ThrM-Proneed Strategy The U.N> strategy was applied 111 these three directions: jf|l. Australia's James Plimsoll. a member of theNseven-nalion Korean Commission, % flew to Korea to be available, with other Commission members, in case Peiping wanted to negotiate a border settlement. There was no indication that the Chinese Reds hart made any approaches In this direction. Other commission members are Chile. Pakistan, the Netherlands the Philippines, Thailand and Turkey. 2. The -General Assembly's 60- nation economic and social committees, in Joint session, pushed a plan for the post-war rehabilitation and relief of Korea. Besides the physical reconstruction of the war-devastated country, this plan envisages a peaceful democratic land and stresses that U.N. forces will be withdrawn as soon »5 its aims are completed.

Communist Foreign Minister Chou En-Lai notified: the Council Saturday that he was sending a delegation to Lake Success in accordance with a Sept. 39 invitation lo debate charges that scaling off of Formosa by the U.S. Seventh Fleet constitutes aggression. Chou rejected an Invitation, extended last Wednesday, to send representatives to argue pen. MacArthur's charges of Chinese Communist intervention in Korea. His cable suggested, however, that the Formosa charge be enlarged to .Include accusations that America Is guilty of aggrwsion In Korea and Manchuria. It is doubtful that the Allies fighting in Korea will aeree to this but it was apparent that, in one guise or another, the Korean issue would be fought out around the tmcil table when the delegation „fives—probably at the end of the week. Meanwhile. American sources expect further public debate—probably Tuesday or Wednesday—on the original resolution which spelled out the policy the U.N. is now following. This afternoon's Council session is scheduled to be devoted to counter charges between Egypt and Israel on the treatment of Palestine Arabs.

(AP) — The government today slashed the non-military use of aluminum by aboul 35 per cent .starting in January. William H. Harrison, administrator of the National Production Authority, announced the order at a news conference. Replying to a question he said the order "very likely" will cause some unemployment in particular factories but he would expect that industry would have some oppor- lunily to prepare before January and use some substitutes for aluminum. Harrisin said thai in Ihe final • ".nalysis^this order does not take aluminum' away from non-mili- .'Ury uses. More than 30 per cent' .of the supply is" directly needed .' for the present defense program, including stockpiles, he said, "and this order simply distributes the available supply to all non-military users in accord with the pattern of use earlier in the year. Nation Maps New Foreign Aid Plan Threat of Reds Considered in Global Survey By JOHN M .HIGHTOWKK WASHINGTON, Nov.' 13.— (AP)—A blueprint for a vast new American foreign nicl program, including economic help to Western Kurope beyond the scheduled end of the Marshall I'liin, was made public by the Administration last night. It probably will form the basis for President Truman's foreign economic recommendations to the new Congress next year. The chief Executive made public global survey of economic prospects and American aid in the light of the Communist threat and the Western rearmament program. The survey calls for far-reaching developments in Ameican policy U> provide help running into billions of dollars over the next few years — perhaps 58.000.01)0.000 or more. Mr. Truman released the reoprt. prepared by former Secretary of the. Army Gordon Cray, as a document deserving "the attention and study" of the American people. But administration officials said .there Is no doubt that Its main recommendations will largely shape the President's foreign economic proposal in his State of the Onion message to Congress in January. This will pose squarely the Issue of how long and how much the United States wants to give or lend friendly nnilons to help them rearm and strengthen their political and economic life against the threat of Communism. 1 N'ew Cimfcrtss Appears Tnnlih The administration has hard sledding getting funds from the present congress to finance the third year of trie Marshall Plan for Western Europe recovery. There is every indication that it will have a rougher time with the new Congress In obtaining approval for and extension of help to Europe beyond the scheduled end of the Marshall plan on June 30. 1952. ; ••.The attack at-the ..enlarged Re^ riuolican oposition may not'- be"however, so much on the, point of furnishing some assistance as on the related issues of how much and under wliat conditions.

Nov. 13. M'/—Atlantic Pact deputies called hiday for a definite decision by Christmas on how Western Germany is to be brought into the Western European Defense System. The deputies, opening sessions here, faced three big problems: 1. To allay French fears that the use o[ Germans In a combined army would provide the basis for n future independent German army; 2. To try to .salvage parU of French Premier Rene Pleven's plan for European defense; 3. Exactly what contribution the Germans should make toward thai defense. Krench Plan Oppo^d Opposed by many of the deputies, the French plan calls for organization of a .supra-national European Defense Council to control the combined West. European army, use of German troops only In small wills and the pooling of war Industries. The United Stales and Britain do not want to delay raising of the European army until a defense council can be formed. They also want German forces of division size In the army. The failure thus far to send an answer (o any of these problems M I"'L:.. n , has delayed the appointment of n ! Mlsslssl l'l" supreme commander for the defense army.

The time Ross talked with reporters was last week while Mr. Truman was cruising on a Chesapeake Bay. The five-day cruise ended yesterday, when his yacht docikcd, Mr. Truman talked briefly with reporters.
