FRIDAY, DECEMBER, IT, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Russia May Harden Attitude to West Again Next Year By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) — Russia may harden its attitude toward the West again early next year Such a switch would .not necessarily reduce the chances which now appear to exist for improving basic contacts between Moscow and the rest of the world. It would tend to increase ten- for Russia's backslapping cam- sions a little and to show more clearly the essentially antagonistic nature of Communist policy toward non-Communist nations. These views are held by responsible Washington officials, some of them highly placed. The views are speculative. They are based on several considerations, including: 1. An assumption that plugging of "peaceful coexistence' during the past year has been aimed primarily at lulling West European countries into relaxation and thereby blocking the rearmament of West Germany. 2. The reasonable certainty that, despite Russia's efforts, both France and Germany will ratify the pending agreements under which West "Germany would be armed 1 and made a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The treaties last night passed a first reading in West Germany's lower house of Parliament. 3 Abelief that some degree oi hostility toward the outside world is necessary to justify to peple under any Red dictatorship the burdens and restraints imposed on them. Final Action Expected Final European action on ratification of the various agreements on Germany is expected ed early next year. After that there may be Big Four foreign ministers' meeting. French Premier Pierre Mendes-France has suggested one for May. Last August, the French Assembly killed the European Defense Community plan to rearm West Germany. It was a great victory for the Russians, whether or not their "peaceful coexistence" campaign had anything to do with It. Some experts here think the Assembly's vote was mainly a matter of French politics and anti- German traditions. At 'any rate, there is high optimism that Western defense plans will not suffer another similar defeat in France. If this optimism proves justified, some American officials believe the main cause for .. _ paign will have ceased to exist. Meanwhile, of course, the Krem- In may think up some other reason to carry on, but developments n the last two days suggest this is not necessarily so. Yesterday, for example, Russia formally warned France that ratification of the German treaties will annul a French-Russian mutual assistance treaty signed in 1944 Even though the Soviet line on this familiar, the formal notice " fairly tough action. Two days ago the Soviet Foreigr. Ministry announced in a broadcast from Moscow that Russia supports Red China's claim on Formosa and denounced the defense pact which ihe United states signed with Nationalist China earlier this month Faubus Names Adjutant General LITTLE BOCK UP! — Gov.-elect Orval Faubus has named Lt. Col Sherman T. Clinger of Rogers to be Arkansas' next adjutant general. Clinger, who will succeed Maj Gen. Lucien Abraham of Batesville, said Faubus gave him the job with "no strings attached other than to run the office honestly." He now is executive officer of the 142nd Field Artillery Group of the Arkansas National Guard.

Despite the initial success. Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's drive for quick ratification appeared certain to face serious difficulties when the pacts return to the chamber next month for key second and third readings. . . Winding up a two-day debate on the first reading the Bundestag agreed last night without a recorded vote to send the controversial agreements to committees fo rfur- ther study. The decision came after the house voted down a Socialist motion to postpone further action until big power talks are held with Russia on reunification of Germany. 174 7-8 63 5-8 ,f, i~l 104 i-o I New York Stocks A T and T Amer Tobacco Anaconda Copper Beth Steel -.

A spokesman was asked this morning how Hammarskjold interpreted the Chou Invitation, but he declined to comment. Other sources close to the secretary general, however, said the very fact that he was going to Peiping answered this question. These sources pointed out that the Assembly had given Hammarskjold a mandate to seek release of the fliers, and. for this reason, he was bound to press the issue.

Main VATICAN CITY WV—Pope Plus XII remains gravely ill and his weakness continues. That was the report today on his over-txil general condition from Dr. Rlccardo Galeazlz-Lisi. The pontiff's private physician's statement confirmed previous word from Vatican sources that despite optimistic reports following X-ray examinations yesterday the Pope's condition remains serious. The Vatican sources said his condition is aggravated by a recur rence of hiccups. < The substitute Vatican secretary ot slate, the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Angelo Dell'Acqua, said today the Pope showed signs of "great fatigue" because of the long examination but was "somewhat better than yesterday." Hernia Found The Pope's ailment, diagnosed after the X-rays yesterday as a small hernia of the esophagus and gastritis, also is accompanied b) hemorrhaging resulting in a slow loss of blood. This, it was said. Is partly responsible for the weakened condition and anemia of the 78- year-old head o! the Roman Catholic Church. The Pope was reported to have passed a "rather agitated" night last night, his sleep Interrupted by hiccup attacks. Dr. Rlccardo Ga- ZKi-Lisl, the Pope's private physician, spent the night at his bedside or in an adjoining chamber, as he has done for nearly a month. The tests yesterday set at res' fears the pontiff had an ulcer and might need immediate surgery Dr. Galeazzl-Lisi said the course of treatment now will aim to increase his strength. The ordeal of two hours undei exploratory X-ray and the fact he again did some work yesterday added to the pontiff's weakness. Among the tasks believed weigh rather heavily on the Pope Is that of preparing his 16th Christ mas message to the world, whicl 1 is scheduled to be delivered Christ mas Eve if he Is able, Each of his Christmas messages since he became Pope in 1939, on the eve of World War II, has beet primarily an appeal for peace.
