Russian Move Expected By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON IB Some of the best informed men in the government believe the Russians when they meet President Eisenhower in Geneva 10 days from now will make their most spectacular move on the issue of disarmament. The Russians, they think, will either offer new concessions or try to force the United States to do so. They have yielded more in the past few months than in the past 10 years. And Eisenhower, judging from his remarks at his Wednesday news conference, may be considering concessions. What he said sounded in a way like an echo of what the Russians said last May about inspection procedures. This is a quick history of the world disarmament problem in the past 10 years, telescoping the views of the Russians on the one side and the Western Allies the United States, Britain, and France on the other. The Russians position until last May: 1. There must be an immediate end to making atomic weapons; those now stored up must be destroyed. This was all to the advantage of the Russians when they had no atomic bombs and the United States had plenty. 2. The nations should reduce their armed forces on a percentage basis. Since the Russians had the largest armed force, a percentage reduction would benefit them. 3. There could be no international inspection teams such as the West proposed allowed in any country to see that it was not cheating on making atomic weapons. This has been the Allied position: 1. No sudden disarmament, but a gradual one step-by-step until finally atomic weapons were scrapped. The reason; To test the disarmament machinery and the sincerity of every country in living up to the agreement. 2. Armed forces reduced through a fixed limit; on their size, not on a percentage basis as the Russians wanted. 3. International inspection teams stationed in every big country with full freedom to check everywhere to see there was no cheating. The two sides stuck to those positions for years. Suddenly on May 11 the Russians made a public announcement which startled the West: They were willing to agree to some of the West's demands, in part anyway. Two days later, May 13, the United States, Britain and France said they were still for unlimited right of international inspection teams to go where they wished and look at anything they wished in a country where they were stationed. In explaining May 11 why they were against unlimited freedom for these teams, the Russians said: In the existing situation, when many states display legitimate concern for their security, it is difficult to expect that these states would trustfully give other states access to their industrial and other resources which are of vital importance for their security.

Symphony, choral and chamber music comes again to the Berkshire Hills in Western Massachusetts with the opening this week at Tangle-wood, Lenox, Mass, of the annual Berkshire Festival of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, led by its music director, Charles Munch. For the sixteenth summer since the Boston Symphony Orchestra has participated, concerts will be given for six weeks, July 6 to August 14, on the estate where a century ago Nathaniel Hawthorne was a guest and told his Tanglewood Tales. As in 1954, an all-time record attendance year at the Berkshire Festival, when lt became necessary to accommodate its growing crowds of music lovers with more concerts within the six-week framework of the Festival, the 1955 Berkshire Festival again consists of 24 concerts. Six Wednesday evenings are devoted to the chamber music of Beethoven, with performances by noted ensembles and soloists. Following the first two weekends of chamber orchestra concerts, the full 104-piece Boston Symphony Orchestra moves to Tanglewood for the Berkshire Festival's final four weekends, July 22-August 14, when 12 weekend concerts are held in the Music Shed, erected (From the Philadelphia Bulletin) If Russia is genuinely seeking an honest agreement at the coming Four-Power discussions at Geneva, as Nikita Khrushchev asserts, he should be well pleased with President Eisenhowers response to his surprising speech at the American Embassy in Moscow. Mr. Khrushchev, at the American Fourth of July party, called on the west to talk to us honestly and sincerely, as equal to equal. In reply. President Eisenhower told his press conference on Wednesday that the United States will go to the Geneva meeting with very hopeful attitudes. and would present our case in a conciliatory, in a friendly attitude; and we dont intend to reject anything from mere prejudice or truculence or any other lesser motive of that kind. The sincerity of that promise was abundantly evident when he went on to discuss the difficulties that must be faced even when there is the best of good will on both sides. On the key question of disarmament, he said that the more one studies the question, "the more he finds himself in a sort of squirrel's cage, and at times has a feeling that he i9 merely chasing himself. Every plan of leveling off or reducing armaments, he pointed out, comes eventually to the problem of enforcement, and that raises the question of inspections to make sure that all parties live up to their agreements. But there is a question, too, whether inspections can ever be fully effective. And an equally grave question which demands to be faced honestly: Are we ready, he asked, to open up every one of our factories, every place where something might be going on that could be inimical to the interests of someone else? He did not answer the question, but the fact that he raised it should give evidence to the Russians that they will be dealing at Geneva with a man who is struggling honestly with the basic problems of achieving and preserving peace. Looking At Record (From the Washington Star) President Eisenhower demonstrated a knowledge of the political" workings of Washington when he told his news conference that Congress, when it wants to, can do an awful lot in a short time. His remark was the latest in the partisan exchange about the record of the present session up to now and about the Democratic target date for adjournment by the end of this month. Actually, the score thus far offers promise that the session may be considered a constructive one with credit enough for a Democratic leadership in the Capitol and a Republican administration in the White House. On foreign policy matters, the President already has fared well. The Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act has been extended; 10 treaties have been ratified, and Congress has authorized defense of Formosa. A foreign-aid program has been approved by both branches and its differences resolved in conference. On domestic legislation, partisan considerations have figured to a greater extent, but compromises may yet save face at both ends of Pennsylvania avenue. The military reserve program which the President described as vital to all of us has been detoured around a House roadblock on the segregation question and has been passed by that branch. The Senate is expected to approve, and perhaps improve, this measure. The Senate has passed highway, housing and minimum wage bills more suited to Democratic tastes than to Republican, but further compromises are possible in the House. The atomic-powered peace ship high on the Presidents list has run aground, but may be refloated. There are other pieces of major legislation bogged down at one point or another. But Democratic Speaker Rayburn has said, were going to have one of the best records of any Congress and Senate Republican Leader Knowland has predicted a pretty good batting average. Both probably will be able to stand by these forecasts when the adjournment gaval sounds. LESS HEATTmORE HUMIDITY LIKELY (Continued From Page One) Blairsville, Cresson, Huntingdon and State College.
