PAGE SIX ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, APRIL 26, 1954 Editorial It's ItlTOt ffl Or fluff * tlfl.vlifflif tlmo It's here. At 2 a.m., Sunday, it arrived — calmly and without fanfare. Daylight time arrived on tchcdtrlo. The friends of daylight-savinjs arc happy about it. the opponents doubtless unhappy but unable to do any- thinjt about it. They wilt have from now until the last Sunday of September to complain — if they wish. But tbc foc< of daylight time take it in good grace, and go along. Those who favor the "fast" time will ti«c tin- extra hour of daylight to work in their yard*, to go for drives, to play golt, or just to sit on the porch and contemplate the beaut ic< of nature. To the supporters of daylight time — enjoy it. To -the opponents, try to forget it — it won't go mvjy but it won't seem MI oppressive. It's like the heat — if you c.m forget the heat, the weather doesn't seem so hot. You're entitled to your opposition, even if helpless to stop it. Meanwhile, we'll get into the swing of the thing — an hour a day more of daylight, ours to enjoy if we wish; and if there arc chronic complainer*, they'll have five month; to grouse. To Wear n Coat or Not —Tlml Is I ho Question Saturday was a beautiful day that brought an annual problem to civili/cd man. To wear a j suit coat or not wear a coat — that is tbc question. Fashion custom lus decreed that business men to be properly dressed -for the office should wear a coat. Regardless of the temperature, 80 or 00 degrees, the well dressed office man and salesman must wear » coat. Sometimes it seems like it isn't fair, to be buffeted around by silly fashion. A coat is too hot on warm days and serves no purpose except as A receptacle for keys, 'pipe, cigarettes, matches, etc. In years past, the coat may have been a mark of distinction, just as an expensive car is now•:'' adiiys. Men who wore coats were presumed to : be those who worked with their heads rather than < hands. But the economic picture has changed and it could be quite likely that some soiled gentleman strolling along in overalls is worth twice the ; dough-rc-mi as the impeccable, crncst young fash- .*:ion plate hauling around n briefcase full of un^.;«old somethings, y$ So even the coat's snobbish purpose is 'gone. «j-|t doesn't mark the man of means. It is not v'.jgarment of caste. It is only one thing on hot £|days — civilized man's burden. •jj* If we men must hew to the line of convcn , let us do so in comfort.

All were sworn to secrecy. However, here fire the highlights of his talk: Red China will not be ret:: ognized . . . The U.S.A. will walk "out of the conference rather than ; : dcbert her smaller allies . . . There • must be complete freedom in Indochina. France is gradually coming around to this point of view . , Under no circumstances will Hit .United States permit Indochina I(J come under Communist control . He ducked, however, the quest ior of using U.S. troops. The above conference, thougl ambiguous, was pleasant. It offset in part another series of ambassadorial conferences Dulles had will the same envoys approximately two weeks ago—conferences whiel precipitated the secretary's nisi trip to Paris and London to calu down our chief allies. This whole series of events illus (rates our somewhat haphazard at times disjointed, policy regard ing Indochina, in which the vice president says in one speech tha we will use troops in Indochini if necessary, and the secretary of slate then says we probably won't. Kntlre (ii-iirvu Picture To get the whole picture it's necessary to go back to the beginning when Dulles first attempted to rouse the American public about dangers in Indochina in his speech before the Council of Foreign Rein! ions. Though it was a vitally important pronouncement of a change in American foreign policy, copies of tho speech were sent to Allied embassies only four hours in advance, and with no comment or explanation. aid. He wanted: 1. A si iff, blunt warning by he Allies to the Reds in Indo- hina—A warning which some nvoys feared would be tli« first lep toward war. 2. A NATO defense organi/a- ion for southeast Asia. However, Dulles didn't have my fuels, figures or concrete iliins for a NATO, and Ihe first hiiig the ambassadors did was nit their heads together alter Ihey left Ihe Stale Department iirid compare notes. They weren't at; all sure what these Stale Department talks meant, and some felt that: Dulles had gone off half-cocked, So Hie British and French envoys, among others, sent hoi cables lo l^ondon and Paris.

These are I he main ones: 1. .lust how much effort have the French put into the war? I low much more would they put forth It this country not in? '2. What would happen if, through American help, Ihp Communists were crushed? Would this country have a deciding voice in Indo china's fiiiure or turn it back to Hie French? American troops senl in as a Insl resort would include regulars iitul draftees. The draftees would have no choice, Bui French draftees are not senl Iti Indochina unless they volunteer lo go. Would the French change this if American draftees were sent into Hie fighting? American youths are drafted for '.'•I months, French youths for 18 months. Kvery year, in France itself between 2M).l)uO and '275,000 youths nre drafted when they reach 21: Uhy is none senl to Indochina un less he volunteers? That question was asked the French embassy here S u n <1 n y night. This was how the conversation went: Question: Why aren't draftees sent to Indochina? Answer: Because they are drafted for only IS months and it woulc he uneconomical to .send them tt Indochina lo (rain and then fight They'd have perhaps only threi months' fighting service and Ihei be brought home. hi Hie three years' war in Korea American casualties were HL',000, of which about ,'{(1,00(1 were hattle deaths, lOri.OOO were wounded, and 8.!>(X1 were missing.

But the French failed lo train : ui Indoehinese officer corps that could replace i he French. Further, the French delayed training Hie Indoehinese administratively so they could some day lake over Hie country if the French nave it independence. It is Ihis country's staled policy Indochina must not fall to (he Communists.

IU)VI,I>: NFAV YORK jeen claiming for centuries he is nan's best friend, nn unlikely .sto- y if there ever WHS one. Bui Ihe dog long has been one of nature's most artful self-salesman, and he has managed lo convince millions of people that he is ihcir top buddy. The current statistics on Ihe canine population ot New York City, however, bring a jarring note of fact into the legend of the dog's loyally lo man, Since 1917 the number of legally licensed dugs here (!) out of 10 obey thn law in Ihis respect) has (alien from 312,517 to 272,811 During the sumo period the human population has grown considerably, and S.P.C.A. officials estimate the cat population of the city is between 400,000 and 500,000. What do these , figures really mean? Has the dog rejected mankind al last, and fled the city? I Ihink so. But apologists for the dog—what dog ever lacked an advocate? — give other explanations. They say there are fewer dogs here because landlords no longer will allow them—and because It costs so much to feed a dog more and more people have decided that, while it's nice to have a pal, the friendship has become too expensive. These arguments sound plausible al first glance. But they don't hold water, I prefer lo believe dogs are leaving Hie city not because they have ceased to like mankind, bill because their conimonsenso tells I hem a modern city is no place for a dog. The growing traffic jams, Ihe crowding together. Ihe incessant noise, Ihe unhealthy fumes — al these characteristics ot city lift repel a dug. Man is unfitted for these strains himself, and a dog is even more so. He has simply broken under the strain. Cats are tougher. The feline population of Ihe city hasn't fallen for an obvious reason. Cats have a secrel sense of humor, and they love to laugh at people. Cats get a real sense of enjoyment out of I lie predicaments city people get ihemsclves into. But Hie dog's nerves simply no longer are up (o the wear and tear nf city living. He has had to lace up to a commonscnso fact—in the last analysis a dog's best friend is himself. So he is heading back lo Ihe green pastures. And who can say Rover is wrong? The National Geographic Society estimates Dial Berlin was •10 per cent destroyed during World War H, Geneva. April 26.-This could be tho beginning of trm "negotiated peac»" which the Soviet government has hern insisting upon and which the Western v-orlrl has been reluctant to accept hpraiiso of a deep-seated distrust of Soviet pledges. This could nlso br the nrgm- ning of the end of international conferences between the Communists and the free governments, for. if this one collapses, there may not he another for years to come. Because such grave consequences are involved, neither side will wish to do anything that would fix upon it responsibility for the failure of the conference. Under such circumstances, the^chanccs of something tangible and concrete coming out of (ho Geneva conference are heller than »vcr. This may sound like optimism unwarranted in the faco of Ihe record since 1!M5. but diplomacy is always full of surprises--especially when it has reached the end of its rope. It is not necessary for Ihe sessions here to cover all the items at issue or lo make a settlement on any suhslanlial number of them for it lo be pronounced a success in terms of international conferences. It can be a success if only one major issue is resolved, such as (he ending of aggression in Asia in relurn for a new setup for peace in Kuropo. To understand the reasoning of lhr> Soviet's as they approach this conference, it is necessary lo go back to June 1951, when — The dog has Jacob Malik made, his speech it the United Nations offering ho olive brunch lo Ihe West. Al. I hat. lime inspired dispatches .•nine out of Moscow indicating that, what, Ihe Soviet, government wanted was n "package" Defilement and that Asian questions were felt lo be closely in- ler-relatcd with European issues. The Berlin conference held earlier Ihis year was an attempt, to tackle European problems, and it wound up wilh Ihe realistic decision that nothing could be done about a Kuro- pean settlement until something was done simultaneously aboul un Asian settlement. All this is but another way of saying that the peace of Ihe world is not regional or sectional but. global and hence, if there is to be an era of peace, every important cause of anxiety must be tackled, if not in this conference, then in those conferences which inevitably must come after this one if I here is the slightest evidence of even a partial success here. What, it, miglh be asked, would be the motivating reason for Soviet Russia t o give ground j offered one for Slfi.OOO on proposition 1. and $26.000 on proposition 2.

There is only one pressure, on ^the men in the Kremlin -the fear that a worsened situation in the world could lead to the downlall of Ihe Moscow regime, especially as Ihe internal economic, situation woulc then grow more dangerous. Kv- eiy hit of information coming out of Soviet Russia indicates that no warlike sentiment 01 passion exists there and that third world war c.ould loosen the bonds between the people and the government, just as it did when !, separate peace with Oerman.v was negotiated by the revolution ary governments of Korensky it the middle of World War I. This conference at fieneva is probably the most irnportan since the Versailles conference of 191!)- which, incidentally, this correspondent reported. Although those meetings lasted over n period of several months, there were less than half a do/en sessions at which all the delegates faced each other in actual conference. The real work was done in informal meetings of four men -the heads of the Allied governments -and the decisions were then submitted to the enemy for approval. While the circumstances of victor vs. loser were absent now, the technique here may he expected to he Ihe same. It is precisely because Ihe Communist diplomats know there is a sort of "now or never" urgency about this conference that il may be confidently assumed that the Russians will not let Ihe Ceneva meeting collapse and thus permit Ihe whole world to look upon the Communists as obstructionists.

The fundamental question here is how to get a guarantee of good faith, but nevertheless It would be well for .observers generally not to write off this conference before it begins.

Allen Reports Uranium Pool WASHINGTON. — Genuine progress is being made on President Eisenhower's historic proposal of an international uranium pool for peaceful uses. That's the inside reason for Ambassador Zarouhin's little-noticed departure. The Russian envoy went to Moscow for the express purpose of submitting a concrete plan formulated by the U.S. This concept is largely the work of Atomic Chairman Lewis Strauss. It was minutely discussed by Secretary of State Dulles and Zarou- bm in a series of meetings extending over several months. Zaroubin returned to the Kremlin to make a personal report on these talks. The Joint Congressional Atomic Committee now has a copy of this momentous plan. It was requested by Committee Chairman \V. Sterling Cole (R., N.Y.t. As the document is classified, its publication is barred. However, the following highlights can be reported: An international atomic commission would be established under the United Nations. The U.S.. Russia, Britain, France and oilier nations would contribute fissionable materials to a common pool for peaceful purposes. The t'.S. is prepared to make the largest initial contribution to this uranium bank. The U.S. is also willing to permit the international atomic agency to be Jocated in Europe, The last two provisions particularly appear to have impressed Moscow Atomic Chairman Strauss has told members of the Joint Committee that Secretary Dulles believes the Russians will accept this plan as the basis for formal negotiations. Behind the Scene* Chief question so far raised by joint committeemcn is safeguarding American atomic secrets. In private talks, Strauss has expressed firm confidence that this is being fully taken care of. lie has told Ihe legislators, "If I fell that our participation in an international atomic commission endanger our secrets, I would not for one second favor it." Nothwilhslanding Ihis assurance, committeemen have made it clear they intend to write their own safeguards into a new atomic law. Indicative of Ihis significant backstage attitude is a requirement favored by Committee Chairman Cole. Under it, before the U.S. could participate in an international uranium pool, the President would have to "make a determination in writing that the cooperating parly does not threaten the security of the U.S.. and that Ihe performance of the proposed agreement will promote and not constitute an unreasonable risk lo Hit- common defense and security of the U.S." Strauss believes Dial a provision along Ihis line acceptable to the Administration can be worked out. Throughout his beckstage discussions, he is stressing that progress is ucing made on the President's proposal.
