FRIDAY, JUNE 25, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE US-British Talks on S.E. Asia Open on Pessimistic Note By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — Sir Winston Churchill and Britain's Foreign Minister Eden, bearing an Alice-iii-Wonderland plan for saving Southeast Asia, today begin talks with President Eisenhower and Secretary of .State Dulles. There are no optimistic predictions here about the outcome of the conference. The plan, which Eden announced Wednesday in London, is of such a kind that it raises some legitimate questions: Just how interested are the i large element of the fairy tale. British in wanting to save Southeast Asia from communism? Is this Eden plan a joke, a smokescreen, or a stalling tactic to cover up basic British unwillingness to defend Southeast Asia? It's a strange plan, coming from Churchill and Eden who prided themselves on wanting a stern stand against Hitler in those, days before Munich when other Britons were preparing to bow their necks. In Indochina the French have been fighting the Communist-led Vietminh for almost eight years. The Vietminh are beginning to smash them back. The French are war-weary. The United States and Britain so far are unwilling to go to their rescue. So the French are talking about an armistice with the Communists. This armistice, if it comes, may result in opening the way for the Reds to take over all Indochina. After that, unless the Western Allies can find some way to stop them, the Communists have all the rest of Southeast Asia open to them. So far the Allies have not been .able to agree on the way. The United States is in an awkward position if it tries to tell the French not to sign an armistice displeasing to this country. The Eisenhower administration had talked very big about stopping communism in Asia. But when the crisis came in Indochina, it did not send in troops nor planes to help the French. Now Dulles wants the United States, Britain, France, and the South Pacific nations to form a military alliance which will fight if the Communists go beyond a certain line That line is still a vague thing. At this point Eden comes into tiie picture. Churchill's aides say Britain will go along with the kind of alliance Dulles has in mind if the United States agrees to go along with the kind Eden has in mind. Eden suggests a "Locarno" type agreement. The Locarno Treaty of 1925 committed Britain, Germany, France, Belgium and Po- them who was attacked. It broke down when Hitler decided to attack. Under Eden's plan the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Ceylon, Burma, and Indonesia would sign the new "Locarno" agreement. Then if anyone of them was attacked, all the others would go to its rescue. This is a guarantee of nothing. Since the Communists attacked in Korea when it suited them, it is reasonable to assume they would break the new "Locarno" by attacking any or all of the other signers when it suited them and they thought they were strong enough to get away with it. But even that reasoning has a Neither Russia nor China would FORD OWNIRS Uneven brakes or* donge** ov*r con cowse oceWenB; Play K safe and tf your brake* of* a»Hn», get ovr trig broke r*Mn« special, including n*w Genuine Ford brak* Nnntfl... wheel cylinders checked... front wheel bearings adjusted and lubricated... foot and hand brake odfwsted . : : brake pedal "play" set.; I broke fluid added.

They might conquer the other Southeast Asian nations, without open act of war, by using local Communists to start a revolution, just as happened in Indochina against the French. But Britain by wanting the "Locarno" agreement approved before it agrees on Dulles' plan, puts stumbling block in the way of any plan at all tc save Southeast Asia. This country probably would not sign the "Locarno." Time is important in Southeast Asia. Even if the United States was 'willing to sign Eden's p3an, the Communists could stall on signing, if i tsuited their purpose, until they had undermined Southeast sia. Meanwhile, they couldn't be stopped because Dulles' plan wouldn't, hav-e been approved yet.
