WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER KT.WS A Look at Geneva Talks Gives Indica tion Of State of World at Mid-20th Century WASHINGTON (AP) — If anyone wants to know the state of the world midway in the 20th century, all he has to do is look at the foreign ministers' conference just getting under way in Geneva. It's a mess. There is even less hope for peaceful solutions than there was when the Big Four foreign ministers met at Berlin in January. And there were no solutions at Berlin. At Geneva the foreign ministers of 19 countries, including the United States' Secretary of State Dulles, are to talk about peace in Korea, where there's a truce, and peace in Indochina, where there's war and no truce. If the truth were known, Dulles probably wishes he was somewhere else. He's in a bit of a box before the meeting starts. Russia and Red China are there. It's possible they might make some concessions in return for giving Red China a seat in the United Nations and for American recognition of the Communists as the legitimate government of China. Door Closed But Dulles has pretty well shut the door on any deal along those lines by stating this country's opposition to recognition or ,a U. N. seat for the Red Chinese. The United States wants Red China to do two things: 1. Let Korea be united. This would mean letting North and South Koreans vote, in free elections, for the government they want. The South Koreans, outnumbering the North Koreans 4-1, would win. But South Korea is an American ally. If China agreed to this arrangement, it would be handing all Korea over to the Allied side. 2. Withdraw aid from the Vietminh, led by Communist Ho Chi Minh, who are fighting the French in Indochina. That would result eventually, or it should, in victory for the French. The Red Chinese fought almost three years in North Korea to keep it out of the hands of the West and wound up, under the truce, occupying it. It's unthinkable they would let North Korea slip into the Allied camp. The Communists, Chinese and Russian, have not in a single instance yielded a foot of ground they took Since World War H. So they're sot likely to start now. Importance Known Repeatedly American officials have stated the importance of Indochina to the West, saying its fall would open all Southeast Asia to communism. By the same token, the Communists know the importance of Indochina to them. It's a little dreamy to think they'd do anything that would result in destroying Ho Chi Minh or losing an inch of ground he took. Dulles can hardly have any hope that American desires for Korea and Indochina will be fulfilled at Geneva. His more immediate, critical problem would seem to be in keeping the American ally. France, from weakening. The French are getting desperate in their losing fight with the Vietminh. Over the weekend they reportedly called for American and British help, greater and more direct, than any given them so far. This hardly gave Dulles and the British a psychological advantage, If the Communists at Geneva of- coming as it did on the eve oi me conference. . ier the French any kind of attrac* tive truce, how can Dulles keep the French from accepting uruess he promises American intervention to bail them out? He'd have trouble doing that without congressional aPP ro ™J and he didn't go to Geneva armea with that approval.
