"But the formula matters less than the faith -the good faith without which no formula can work justly and effectively." Kisenhovver evidently designed his speech as America's answer to the Soviet peace offensive which began immediately after Stalin's death on March 5. Soviet Premier Malenkov has said that all problems between Russia and the U. S. can be solved, and the Reds have made a number of peaceful gestures — including agreement on the exchange of sick and wounded prisoners in Korea itarting next Monday. Today Elsenhower pressed his question about what Russia is now prepared to do about achieving real peace. He asked: "Is the new leadership of the Soviet Union prepared to use Its decisive influence In the Communist world— including control of the flow of arms — to bring not merely an expedient truce in Korea but genuine peace in Asia? : Act In Concert "Is It prepared to allow other nations, including those of Eastern Europe, the free choice of their own forms of government and the right to associate freely with other nations In a world-wide community of law?" "Is It prepared to act In concert with others upon serious disarmament proposals to be made firmly effective by stringent U. N.- Controls and inspection? "If not — where then is the concrete evidence of the Soviet Union's concern for peace?" His own proposals, the President declared, "spring — without ulterior purpose or political passion— from our calm conviction that the hunger for just peace is in the hearts of all peoples — those of Russia and of China no less than Of our own country." "They conform to our firm faith," he added, "that God created men to enjoy, not destroy, the fruits of the earth and of their own toil." The President's proposal to use a percentage of armaments costs for peaceful purposes throughout the world! contained no figures. However, according to the Truman administration's budget for the fiscal year ending June 30, military spending will total about $51,200,000,000 aside from the bulk of the 10% billion dollar foreign aid WluOn fOM Wf RfrnR* menu, ^ AM PWtlWfc These flfom itnw that, in the can of the U.C, atom, the diver- slon of a lubftantial percentage of its armament expenditures for world aid to the needy would run into billions of dollarv The Idea of diverting funds in this way has been suggested be* tore.
