VAGI TITO BLYTHEVTLLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, JANUARY, 1,1W4 Policy of Initiative In Foreign Affairs Didn'tAlwaysWork By JAMES MARI.OW WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower, in his report to the nation last night, claimed a "strong and consistent policy has been developed toward gaining and retaining the initiative in foreign affairs," This echoed recent statements by Secretar5- of State Dulles tha Russia now I« on the "diplomatic defensive" and the free world has the "diplomatic and moral Inltla ttye." That Elsenhower seized the in Itiative and put the Russians on tne defensive near the end of the year is indisputable. There is less positive evidence to support a claim the policy of initiative was consistently successful. When he «ald, right «fter taking office, that the 7th Fleet off Formosa would let Chiang Kai-shek attack the Communist Chinese mainland, that may have looked like initiative. Nothing happened. Chiang, still en Iforrnosa, has not attacked the mainland. When Elienhower challenged the Soviets last April 1« to show by deeds that they wanted peace, he no doubt meant that to put the Russians on the defensive by tell- ng them to put up or shut up. Churchill Wanted Meeting: Thi« wait-and-see attitude wasn't sufficient Initiative for Sir Winston Churchill, who suggested a meeting between himself, Eisen- icwer, French Premier Laniel and lovlet Premier Malenkov. Eisenhower declined, later set- led for a meeting In Bermuda between himself, Churchill and Lan- Dulles and the el. Meanwhile, Jrench and British foreign mln- sters Invited Russian Foreign Minster Molotov to meet with them. This put the Russians on the de- ehsive. They stalled for months in a windy exchanges of notes, un- 11 they appeared as hot wanting 0 talk about peace. Toward year's end they finally agreed to meet Jan. 35. Only an optimist expects anything to come of it, but at least the West can take credit for trying. Elsenhower also embarrassed the Russians last summer when he shipped food to East Germans, who dared reprisals to come for it, thus affording plain evidence that satellite peoples were not getting enough (a eat: That may have been a major factor in inducing the Russians to announce yiey would put more effort Into giving trie satellites peoples a better life. One of the unknown chapters of history is whether agents of the Eisenhower administration had a hand in encouraging East German workers to revolt against their Communist masters last June. Discontent Revealed This revolt also put the Russians on the defensive by revealing the discontent of people behind the Ton Curtain. The administration could claim initiative for this, If It had had a part In the uprising. It never said it did. In any event, the food shioments exploited the situation to Western advantage. Eisenhower in December truly ook the Initiative with a proposal hat Russia and the United States alk on pooling some of their itomic materials for peaceful uses. It was a brand new idea. The Russians were On the spot. Finally they replied with a weasel- worded reply that looked like an cceptance but was so phrased hat they could stall their way out. But, while Dulles worked tlre- issly In behalf of this country's oreign affairs, this country appnr- ^ntly made no progress in one place considered critical as defense against Russia.. This was In France which, in spite of Dulles' proddings. still had not moved an inch' closer to joining the European Defense Community. And without France there can be no EDO.

Diesels to Lose Blatant Horns Two Railroads To Remove Loud Nerve-Janglen BALTIMORE («—If you'r. tired of hearing that nerve jtntlinc fee- horn blast from diesel locomotives, take heart. Two railroad* have announced they're doing: away with It, as a public service. On the New York Central, the horn Is going to be replaced by a hlghpowered version of the old- fashioned steam whistle. On the Baltimore and Ohio, it will be chimes — or something the B. & 0. says sound* a lot like chimes. R. T. Martin, NYC division passenger agent at Columbus, O., announced the return of the steam whistle yesterday and said many letters had been received from people who missed its mournful wail. The B. It O. then disclosed here that it had been experimenting for five years with something to take the place of the dtesel horns, whio'i hnve been called "outrageous" in letters to the railroad. A spokesman said engineers have come up with a new set of horns that sound like chimes but still have the carrying power a locomotive whistle must have. Neither railroad mentioned how, soon the conversion would take I 1 place. r or JANUARY WHITE SALE Lowest Prices on Sheets in 11 Years REG. 1.89 LONGWEAR SHEETS Wards thrifly Muslin Sheets 132 bleached white cotton threads per. sri. inch. 81X99" REG. 2.19 SHEETS, S1X10S" ..1.59 72X99", Reg. 1.89. 1.50; Reg. 49c Cases. 49c -REG. 2.69 TREASURE CHESTS Wards Best Quality Muslin Sheets with 145 bleached while threads per s(|.
