WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 2, t958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE FTVJ Dulles Warns Reds of New Aggression No More Sanctuary For China, Secretary Says I (Continued from Page 1) We shall not lend ourselves to Communist maneuvers designed to win their end through guile. "If . . . the conference is serving no useful purpose, we shall expect to withdraw from the conference." Dulles assured the Legionnaires the United States would seek at the peace parley "no pretext for turning Korea into a U. S. base on the Asia mainland." He said the American goal is a united, free Korea, and that on details U. S. thinking is flexible. "We hope the Communists will come to the conference in the same spirit, and not throw roadblocks in the way of achieving a simple and fair result, in the interest of a long-suffering Korean people," he continued. Dulles made it clear that the United States would be willing to talk about Indochina, if the Chinese Communists desire it, at the Korean peace conference. Dulles chided the United Nations for paying what he termed too little attention to South Korea's views in last week's debate on the makeup of the U. N. peace delegation. "Some of the member states seem to have assumed that the Republic of Korea would automatically go along with anything that the U. N. wanted," he said. "In fact, the Republic of Korea , is not a puppet. It has a will of • its own, and 20 million people have backed that will with enormous sacrifices." Dulles said, however, that regardless of this criticism he welcomes the U. N. as the "town meeting of the world" and a vital element in keeping world peace. • The secretary told the legionnaires that while the United States seeks to promote the welfare of foreign nations abroad, "the basic motive which animates those of us who work for your government is the same motive that animated you legionnaires when you fought for your country—that is a patriotic dedication." U. N. Vital Dulles said too often many persons believe that peace is won merely by pacifism, and he added: "They should know by now that peace is not had merelv by want- Ing it, or talking about it, or seeming to accept the role of a doormat. I "To win peace is as hard if not harder than to win a war. "Peace requires anticipating what it is that tempts an aggressor and letting him know in advance that if he does not exercise self control he may face a hard fight, perhaps a losing fight.
