MONDAY, JUNE 28, 1954 BLITHE V1LLB (ARK.) If Russia Attacks, Big Three Won't Have Time to Bicker By JAMES MARLGW WASHINGTON (AP) — The Big Three — the United States, Britain and France — could hardly afford a split if Russia attacked. They'd have to fight, and together, or surrender. They wouldn't have the luxury of time to discuss their differences. They have that luxury now, and are using it, because they are not in a hasty war but in a long-range one. In the end the long-range war may be just as fatal. The Communists are inching ahead, as in Indochina. The fact that President Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dul- Jes and Prime Minister Churchill and Britain's Foreign Secretary Eden are here discussing their differences is testimony to the fact that they do have time. None of them knows how much. Meanwhile, the Allies, including the French, act in their own individual interests and debate their differences. The French held Indochina as a colony while not under pressure to do otherwise. When the Communist-led Vietminh challenged them, the French showed they would make only limited sacrifices to hold what was theirs. They sent no draftees into Indochina. That has been a war fought fay French volunteers, and Germans and others in the Foreign Legion. Costly to U- S. • And in the past year the French, who pay a lot less in taxes than the Americans, weren't even able, or willing, to pay for their war in Indochina. The United States was carrying 78 per cent of the cost. When they reached a crisis in Indochina, and didn't get direct American intervention, there was no word from Paris the French would step up their fighting with draftees. They began at once to look for a truce. In Europe they have stalled for years about joining the single European army which this country considers the only true bulwark against future Russian intentions of attacking the West. If tke French approved creation of that army, and joined it, Germany would be allowed to rearm at least to the extent of providing 400,000 troops for the single army to serve beside the French. The French fear of a rearmed Germany, ever, to a limited degree, so far has been greater than their fear of a Russian attack if the single army isn't formed. Split to pieces by internal politics, they seem incapable of acting. And they may make a truce with the Communists in Indochina that will leave open to them not only the whole country but all Southeast Asia unless the Allies can form a military alliance to prevent further Communist moves. Strange Position The United States, in turn, since it wasn't willing to send troops or planes into Indochina, is in a strange position to object to the kind _of truce the French make. After all. the French did the fighting and the dying in that war. The Eisenhower administration also has political problems to think of. It helped itself to office in 1952 by criticizing the Democrats' conduct of the Korean War. With the November congressional elections coming up. the administration has to think twice about sending any more American troops into Asian fighting. Secretary of State Dulles now reportedly has a plan — a military alliance of Britain. France and other non-Communist countries — to protect Southeast Asia after the truce in Indochina. But he has never spelled it out to the public. In short, the United States would like to stop communism in Asia but, because of the possible consequences, has been less than willing to go all-out. The British have some interest of their own in not wanting sudden war or getting mixed up too fast in an American plan which might precipitate all-out war. The British are closer to Russian atom bombing if the big war does start. They, being a nation of traders, would like to trade with China, always in the hope this might split China away from Russia someday. In addition, the British have to consider the attitude of their Commonwealth nations, such as India, whose Prime Minister Nehru stands flatfooted against war by the West in his continent. 5-Year-Old Who Survived 40 Hours in Rugged High Sierras Will Get to Finish Vacation MARKLEEVTLLE, Calif. CB—Little Kathy Paxton, who survived more than 40 hours without food or shelter in the High Sierra wilderness with no more serious consequences than a couple of bumps, is going back to WOODS Lake .to finish her vacation today. The red-clad 5-year-old was located up the granite cliffs iy 2 miles from Woods Lake yesterday by Alvin Van Dell. 30, a timber cruiser. He joined the search "because I knew the country around there." Van Dell and a friend. Louis Avery, started to work the high country because they thought others among the 500 Iflpking for Kathy had thoroughly worked lower lands. Woods Lake is at the 8,500-foot elevation near Kit Carson Pass on the ridge of the High Correspondents Unhurt in Crash At Guatemala TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (JP) — Two U. S. Correspondents from Time and Life magazines were reported to have escaped unhurt yesterday ' from the crash of a small plans at Esquipulas, Guatemala. The newsmen were Robert Lubar, chief of the magazines' Mexico City bureau, and George Silk, photographer. U. S. Ambassador to Honduras Whiting Willauer said he had cabled U. S. Air Force headquarters in Panama, asking for an air rescue team to get the two men out. Their plane reportedly crashed at the airstrip in Esquipulas, the Col. Carlos Ca'illo Armas' rebel invaders and the rebel headquarters for a time last week. Sierra. Footprints Found They found Kathy's footprints— but lost them. After circling fruitlessly, Van Dell called, "Lou, Lou" to Avery. But it was Kathy who answered. "Why don't you call me?" she piped from a nearby ledge. She had been sleeping in a crevice when Van Dell called from only a few feet away. Hardly daring to believe it was she, the tali lumberman asked: i "Are you Kathy?" "Yes," she replied with a tiny smile, "and I'm tired." So Van Dell carried her, chattering about her experiences all the way, half a mile back to a road where a California highway patrol car was waiting with her I stepfather, Stewart Crandall of Cupertino. She was rushed to search headquarters, where a doctor from Stead Air Force Base near Reno was waiting. Aside from a bruised eye and a chipped tooth suffered in a fall, plus not having eaten for more than a day and a half, Kathy was declared all right. Double Check But to make sure, an Air Force ambulance took her and her mother to Carson City, Nev., for a more thorough check. Kathy smiled and waved at everyone, and only cried when she learned that the ambulance wasn't to take her back to the camp at Woods Lake. After it was all over, Mrs. Cran- j dall said: "If that's what she wants, to go 5c Haircuts Popular TOKYO (-•?)—Barbers are doing a rush business in Tokyoawa, 200 miles south of here.

I feel like 93 instead of 33." Then she added. "And I'll never forget those wonderful men who hunted and hunted almost without rest while Kathy was lost. I'm just grateful' to everyone and everything." • Kathy disappeared Friday evening. She said she drank water from a hole but had nothing to eat. "At night I lay down on some pine needles," she said. "It was awfully cold." It was — 34 degrees each night. Proudly, she added: "I was never scared." Tired of Almost'' Relief From PILES? Then Write For This FREE BOOK!

Newly Found Sarcophagus Is Empty CAIRO. Egypt'(;?}—The recently uncovered Saqqara Sarcophagus proved .to be empty yesterday but its discoverer thinks he will find the real tomb of an ancient Pharaoh deeper within the pyramid. Archeologist Zakaria Goneim, who found the sarcophagus May 31 beneath a step pyramid he had discovered last December said last night it was a "symbolic tomb" and he expects "to find the' real one somewhere else in the pyramid-" "Any possibiltiy that the tomb had been robbed should be ruled out," he said. The tomb was opened amid great secrecy yesterday, but a commu- nique from the Education Ministry said it was empty. The ministry said work in the area, some 20 miles south of Cairo, would be suspended until late fall.

NAACPWillFigh Efforts lo Block De-Segregation Will Stand for No Trifling with Court Decision, Counsel Says DALLAS (.?! - The leader of the Negroes' aniisegregation battle has indicated his organization will stand for no trifling with the Supreme Court's school decision. Thurgood Marshall says the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will go to court against local school boards which balk. Marshall arrived yesterday for the annual national convention of the NAACP in this segregated city. As special counsel for the NAACP, he was a big factor in the May 17 decision of the Supreme Court which outlawed segregation- in public schools. "While the governors want to circumvent the Supreme Court." he said, "we are going to circumvent the governors . . . "Since the Supreme Court spoke there is no use listening to any body else, "In suits, if they nave to be filed. the school boards will be the de fendants." However, he would not deny pro- segregation governors the right to speak out against the court's ruling. And he said he favors court action to compel admission of Negro students to schools only as a final resort, Today, Marshall was discussing with other Negro lawyers how to handle any possible suits. The lawyers will confer with state NAACP presidents tomorrow, opening day of the six-day convention. About 700 delegates are expected. The lawyer said the convention will consider other fields in which Hollywood Continued from Page 4 "about the &irldes."

He thinks he gets the "big view" by closing his eyes to details. And his favorite art is a silhouette — because it has no highlights and shadows. He thinks of the nation as a one-color map - where towns and people and needs are gratifyingly all alike. And he advertises accordingly. Fortunately the SQUINT is a rare creature. Most ad-men adapt their advertising to meet the problems of sales and sales problems vary. They know that one town may buy twice as many girdles or puddings or toothpaste as another town — even though incomes are equal... because regions are different, tastes are different, and people are different! So most advertisers concentrate their advertising In areas that pay - instead of spending loftily in across-the- board campaigns. Their "national" advertising starts at the local level in newspapers! All business is local ...and so are all newspapers!
