FRIDAY, JULY J, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE TERM Lack of US Decision on SE Asia May Be Big Factor in Cold War for Many Years By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) Twenty-five years from now — if by then the Communist wave has receded or is lapping at American shores — the cause may be traced back to this country's decision, or lack of It, on its dilemma of 1954. The dilemma is what to do about the Communist threat in Southeast Asia where the French, in Indochina, are melting under the torrid drive of the Communist-led Vietminh. What decision has this country made so far? None. It is going: to plan with the British and other Allies for united action in Southeast Asia against the Communists if they— If they do what? Nobody knows. At this moment the United States doesn't seem to know whether a line will have to be drawn in Indochina against the Communists, or perhaps outside Indochina because talking of the importance of Indochina and how, if it fell, all Southeast Asia stood in peril—the President's advisers were divided on what to do. Meanwhile, China, the main enemy, could stand aloof, sending in supplies to the Vietminh. letting the Vietminh do the dying. If China . intention. If Viet Nam falls to the Communists, Laos and Cambodia may fall next unless the Allies step in and tell the Communists: "No further." There's no sign they intend to do that either. . Once the Communists- got'Indo- china, they could pump supplies across the border to help revolutionary Communists in neighboring states like Burma and Thailand, just as China helped the Vietminh. The lack of decision by America and its allies .stirred Sen. Know- and of California yesterday.. Knowland, the Republican leader in the Senate, had urged the United j States to bomb China during the By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS States would face another decision: whether to bomb China. That might bring in Russia, on China's side, and start World War HI. But, as Knowiand noted, if the United States never moves in anywhere, the Communists in time will try to take over everywhere. The Eisenhower administration will sent in her own troops, the United have to make a decision someday. Cigarette Smokers Still Puffing Away—Despite Medical Reports Korean War. Most of the country's cigarette Less than a month ago he said i smokers still are puffing away the United States will have to "face up to the fact" it may have to fight in Indochina. Yesterday looking at Viet Nam slowly falling to the Communists and little being done to stop it, he said: How Lon£ "Where do we go from though apparently with some restraining anxieties—despite medical reports the habit might hasten their death. This was the situation indicated today by checks with tobacco wholesalers and retailers in more . . - [than a score of major cities across How many more Communist vie- that Country couldn't be defended tories must be gaill ed in Asia before the free world recognizes the danger?" He_ continued: Will the non-Communist countries cling to their feeling it is not worth the risk of fighting when it comes to Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Burma, Malaya, India, Pakistan, Formosa, Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand? ..-.'. When the crisis came 'in Indochina—although all year 1 the .Eisen- any longer. There is even no certainty that a line will ever be drawn or that the Allies will in fact ever act together, or separately, to keep Southeast Asia out of communism. Indochina has three states: Viet Nam, Laos, Cambodia. The fighting between French and the Vietminh is in Viet Nam. The French are being smashed. They may be forced to yield all of Viet Nam unless the Allies intervene. There is sign the Allies have any such the nation. Most'.of them said they had detected no change in cigraette sales how someday." However, there were some reports of sales drops, amounting to as much much as 25 per cent, along. with other signs some smokers were disturbed. A change to filter-tipped cigarettes was a wide trend. Among 75 sources, some of them representing chains with hundreds of outlets, 52 said cigarette sale's mained unchanged. 15 had re- reported slumps, usually slight, and 7 reported sales increases.
