Eisen-» _ . _ . hower's Democratic opponent lor the presidency, "lacks the exper- ence, the stature and the power of decision in great world matters which are so neccssry to save our nation at this time," Dulles told a news conference yesterday. Dulles Speaks After Meet Dulles, chief author of the foreign policy plank of the GOP 7ilat- form, spoke out after a two-hour conference with EisenhowRr mid his vice presidential running niR,te, Sen. Richard M. Nixon of California. "I think we all agree," said Dulles, "that the trend of our pre- eent foreign policies is io put our nation In the greatest peril it has ever been in the entire course of our national history." Then he went on to blast those policies and to say: "I would not be here expressing the views I have if they were not in accord with Gen. Eisenhower's views." Three Agree On Policy Eisenhower, Nixon suut he agree, Dulles said, that foreign policy is the major issue of the campaign— a view Stevenson expressed last week. Virtually all credit for improvement of morale in Western Europe belongs to Eisenhower — who was North Atlantic commander until last June 1 — and not lo the administration, Dulles declared. "At the end of World War n," he said, "Russia was a relatively weak ami terribly devastated country. The United States had unprecedented power end prestige in the world.
