WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7, 1954 BLYTHEVTL1E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS How Much Will U.S. Permit Red China to Aid Vietminh By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — The Red Chinese are gradually calling the Eisenhower administration's hand in Indochina. Now it's a quest'.on of how much further they go before the administration puts up or backs up. Secretary of State Dulles has been talkhg for the administration on what it would do if the Red Chinese intervened in Indochina to help the Communist-led Vietminh against the French and Vietnamese. European Tour Gave Douglas Appreciation of l/.S.-ond Food He has talked of it impressively and repeatedly but so vaguely that two congressional committees, after hours of questioning, did not pin him down on what the administration has in mind. This may have the virtue of keeping the Communists guessing. It also keeps Americans guessing and raises the question: Does Dulles have a policy ready to apply if crisis comes, or is he playing by ear? In a speech in St. Louis last Sept. 2, and again in a New York speech March 29, he warned the Red Chinese against sending their army—it turns out now he was emphasizing "army "—into Indochina. If that happened, he said, "the Chinese Communist regime should realize that such a second aggression (.after Korea) could not occur without grave consequences which might not be confined to Indochina." But in the same March 29 speech | he revealed the Red Chinese have I recently sent in 2.000 men to help the Vietminh, whose leader. Ho Chi Minn, is a Moscow-trained In- dochinese. Monday Dulles told the House Foreign Affairs Committee Red Chinese" were operating antiaircraft guns for the Vietminh and shooting jdown French planes around Dien Bien Phu, where the French are making a do-or-die stand. Asked about his warning to the Red Chinese about intervening in Indochina, Dulles noted he had warned the Chinese they should not send in an army. But in a war like the one in Indochina a few thousand technical experts, supplied at the right time and place against the hard pressed French, might be enough to wreck them without need for a full-size Chinese army. This, in short, confronts Dulle and the administration with the FREE SHAVE FOR RED ACITATORS-A Red head becomes a bald noggin as Tehran police apply this hair-raising punishment to Communist demonstrators seized during Iran's recent elections. Taking matters into their own hands, officials shaved the heads of culprits responsible for the uprising.

In a New York speech Jan. 12 Dulles said this country would try to deter any Communist aggression by depending on the "capacity" to retaliate massively and instantly. On March 29, and again yesterday before the House committee, he spoke of the need for "united action" in Indochina. Committee members later said they were still left blank on any specific plans Burglars Are Unconvinced SALEM, N. H.

Cracksmen have hit the safe at least eight times in the past two years without getting a penny, he said. In the latest attempt, early Monday, they smashed the safe beyond repair. Shugrue planned to install a new one yesterday. WARNING OKDEK IN THE CHANCERY COURT, CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT, MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS.

Taylor & Sudbury, Attys. for Pltf. 3/24-31-4/7-14 By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD WV-What does an American miss most after a year and a half in Europe? "Some pood, simple food," replies Kirk Douglas. "In France, where I spent much of rny time, you can get the most elegant food in the world. But after a while you yearn for a weU-prepared. plain dish such as you can only get in the United States. Pot roast. Corned beef and cabbage. A hamburger and milk shake. How I could have used something like that!" Douglas frankly admits that he went abroad to profit from the tax exemption for Americans who lived abroad 18 months. He didn't come back with as much profit as he had hoped for; Congress stepped in and changed the law. But he does think that the jaunt was worthwhile in other respects. The actor made three pictures abroad: "The Juggler," "Act of Love" and "Ulysses." He toured throughout Israel, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany and England. He met royalty and the heads of state. He feels that the whole experience caused him to grow as an actor and as an individual. But most of all, it threw a new light on his native land. "You miss the things you have always taken for granted in this country." he observed. "For instance, when you're in Europe for a while, you almost forget that the bathroom is a well established institution. "When you come back here, you get a different impression just from seeing the faces of the people. Americans seem so much healthier, cleaner and happier. I guess it's because of our standard of living." He added that a trip abroad made him again appreciate the American success story, of which his own life is a notable example. He was born Issur Dariielovitch in Amsterdam, N. Y. His parents, who also had six daughters, had emigrated from Russia. "If they had stayed there, I would have been a peasant." he reflected. "I realized in Europe that the average person has little chance of rising above the status of his parents. But in America, anyone can do anything. Any boy can become president of the United States."
