WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 16, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINS Ike, Adlai Want Arms Talks, But Differ on How and When By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson are agreed on wanting disarmament talks with the Russians but not, it seems, on how or when. • Eisenhower, in his April 16 speech to the American Society of Newspaper Editors, told the Russians that before such talks could begin he wanted them to show by deeds they had goodwill. • Stevenson, In his Radio-TV report to the nation last night on his world ^ tour, laid down no such terms but, - apparently, would like to see disarmament discussions get started as soon as possible Elforts by this country in the late 1940's to get Russia to agree on a disarmament plan got nowhere The Russians balked at the kind of Inspection this country wanted made everywhere to prevent cheating The problem was tackled by the United Nations but has been frozen in a UN icebox for years Stevenson said, "once more. I think,- we should fix our sights high again, as we did in 1947, and resume the initiative in re-exploring the possibility of disarmament" What makes Stevenson think the Russians, who stood like stone against American attempts at disarmament in the past, would be likely to act any differently now? Need Greater For one thing, Stevenson said, there is the hydrogen bomb which emphasizes more than ever the need for disarmament since the alternative is even heavier armament and "more frightening weapons" And besides, he Indicated, there have been some events which may have affected Russian thinking in recent years; Stalin's death; revolts in the satellites; the realization that Russian threats had driven the West into big rearmament .IKnd that the West, as it showed in Korea, would meet force wth' force Stevenson did not suggest thi country disarm while seeking agreement with Russia of work disarmament On the contrary, IK expressed fear this country mighi be, getting too careless about re arming enough In his April speech Eisenhower called upon the Communists to show their good intentions in var ious ways: A Korean armistice, a peace conference on Korea, an end to Communist attacks on Indochina; an Austrian peace treaty, a united Germany and "full independence" of the East European nations Progress On Two Of the points he listed, progress has been made In only two: There Is a Korean armistice and the Korean peace conference is scheduled to open in late October, if the Communists don't delay It Eisenhower didn't say every condition he laid down had to be met, signed, sealed and finished befote he'd consider talking disarmament with the Russians again But he did say he wanted some progress made "As progress in all these areas strengthens world trust," he said, "we could proceed concurrently with the next great work—the reduction of the burden of armaments . weighing upon the world To this end we would welcome and enter into the most solemn agreements" Stevenson did not mention this Eisenhower speech, or the President's terms And if he thought the Wife of Ex-Diplomat Vanishes GENEVA, Switzerland W)—Police CT'ef Charles Knecht announced today that Mrs. Donald MacLean, American-born wile ol a British diplomat widely believed a fugitive behind the Iron Curtain, disappeared with her three children from Geneva last night. The 37-year-old woman, a native of Chicago, and her children had been living here with her mother, Mrs. Melinda Dunbar. for some months. MacLean and another British diplomat, Guy Burgess, crossedy ,frcm England into Prance in May 1051. ostensibly on a holiday, and have not been seen in the West since.

The State budget is big enough anyhow, they thought. Deputies of other factions disagreed with the gesture. They felt entitled to accept the raise.
