MONDAY, MAY 10, 1954 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Democrats Renew Demands For Foreign Policy Change WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic demands for a change in America's foreign policy flared anew today in the wake of reports of free world setbacks in Europe and Asia. Some minority party members criticized this country's allies. Others took swipes at the Eisenhower administration's handling of foreign affairs, which in turn was defended by Republican leaders. International problems were a possible topic at President Eisenhower's weekly conference with GOP congressional chiefs this morning. The chief executive convened a special session of the strategy- making National Security Council Saturday, the day after word arrived of the fall of the Indochina fortress Dien Bien Phu to the Communists. Secretary of State Dulles, a Security Council member, conferred with a number of Republican senators afterwards. Today Eisenhower had appointments with Adm. 'Arthur W. Radford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Secretary of Defense Wilson. New Allies? Sen. Smathers (D-Fla) said in a speech prepared for Senate delivery today that developments in Indochina and Geneva prove that this nation's "old allies," including Britain and France, no longer stand up with us in ''resolute determination to oppose Communist aggression." As a result, the Florida senator said, this country should "seek • new allies" among friendly Latin- American nations and other countries that have- stoutly resisted communism. Calling for & complete shift in foreign aid and trade programs, Smathers said Latin-American nations such as Brazil, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela should be moved from the bottom to the top of the list for U.S. aid. He also asked continued encouragement for Greece and Turkey, which he said have demonstrated anti-Communist strength, and South Korea, Pakistan, the Philippines and Japan, which he described as similar outposts in the Pacific and Asia. At the Geneva conference, Smathers said, England and France failed to support the United States and gave that conference some of the "awesome aspects of a Munich." In Indochina and Asia, he said, "we may take encouragement from prospects of keeping de- termined allies like South Korea. Pakistan, the Philippines and Japan, whereas there is no dependency to be placed in the colonial governments." "In all candor, we must admit that our long and stubbornly held hope for uniting the Western world as the free world may well be beyond recall," he said. Sen. Kennedy (D-Mass) said in a CBS television interview yesterday that "I think Indochina is lost" unless the French and Vietnamese are determined to continue the fight against the Communists there. He said U.S. intervention with combat troops would not succeed because Red China would then intervene with still larger forces. Stephen A. Mitchell .Democratic national chairman, said during an NBC TV debate yesterday that the Eisenhower administration has so many foreign policy spokesmen the American people are confused. He predicted that by the end of this year Dulles would be out of office. "Oh, no," was the immediate response from Republican National Chairman Leonard Hall. Hall went on to say a main Eisenhower administration accomplishment was to recognize communism "as a world menace," and that previous Democratic failure to do this led to the loss of China to the Communists.

By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD W—Last niRht the Great Schnozola did his s\vnn song for the Comedy Hour, but he's not through with TV. Jimmy Durante told me the reason he won't be back on the Sunday night extravaganza: "They're changing the whole setup on the show. The advertising agency is taking over most of the shows (20 for next season). NBC has the rest, and they wanted me to do only three or four next year. I don't want to do that. I think n comedian shouldn't be on any less than every four weeks. "It's okay for guys like Martin and Lewis, because they're doing pictures too. But I don't want to do only three or four n season." Last night's show marked the end of Durante's association with the hour-long extravaganzas. For three years, he was one of the kingpins of the All-Star Revue. When that series hit the rocks, he was switched over to the Comedy Hour, for which he has done eight shows this season. What about next year? "I don't know what I'll do," snid the Schnoz. "I might do a half- hour show every other week. This hour-show routine is kinda rugged, All that memorizin' to do! Most of the other stars read their lines off cards and prompters. I can't do that. I can't see that far widout my glasses." Jimmy, who has never been not- , ed for a fabulous memory, faces the added burden of being on- camcra for most of the show. And ho always has special songs which require lots of memorizin'. He emphasized that he wouldn't do a show every week for all the money the network could offer him. He'd like to alternate weeks with another show. Jimmy is under lonp-term contract to NBC. so he's obliged to stay in TV, but he wants to anyway. "I think it's wonderful." he said. "It's a lot of work puttin' on an hour show, but after it's all over with, it don't seem so bad. And the reaction from the fans! It's wonderful. I'll never forget the letters I got from the first show I did. Great letters, and they didn't even ask for an autographed pit- OKLAHOMA CITY W—The Oklahoma Historical Society blames the recent loss of historical markers around the state on "miscreants and knaves."
