TVVSLV1 tulv I>iiii»o Dulles to Meet Reds Pledged Against Any 'World Division NEW YORK (AP) — Secretary of State Dulles will meet the Russians in Berlin soon Jirmly pledged against any deal to divide the world between the rule of Moscow and tha of tha Western Powers. cislon. saying; it will provide more Ther» !« no plan for a "partner •hip division of world power with thoae wno suppres* freedom," the •ecretary aatd, last night In an ad- dreaa to the Council of Foreign Relations here. Reviewing Eisenhower administration work- in foreign and security affairs during its first year »nd taking a quick look at the future, Dulles made these basic points: Future diplomacy—The "United States, Britain and France will negotiate at Berlin for the unification of Germany and the liberation of Austria. The aim is .to "advance the cause of human welfare." The way to a cold war victory— If the free nations devote thero- aeives to promoting freedom, they will effectively demonstrate Its advantages to people behind the Iron Curtain, thus offering "our greatest hope" for solution of the Soviet problem. Dulles said there is now, even within Russia, a test of strength between the people and "the powerful rulers." Free world security—The Elsen- hower administration has made a "basic decision" to build its security upon "massive retaliatory power" so that Russia may be deterred from attack. Dulles linked the announced withdrawal of two security at less cost. "Only Hope" Allied strength—Until the Bix- nation European Defense Community is set up, the North Atlantic Alliance "and indeed future peace, are in jeopardy." Dulles, who calls EDO the only hope for easing French-German tensions, those tensions as a fuse for Betting off "international arson." Bipartisanship In foreign policy —Dulles made a bid for Democratic support by saying that many policies of the Truman administration "were good." He mentioned Greek-Turkish aid, European economic aid, the breaking of the Russian blockade of Berlin, the fight against communism in Korea ,nd the military buildup in Europe. But he said these were moves born of emergency which do not necessarily make "good permanent policies." It seemed to be In this sense that he hailed the decision by the National Security Council, headed by President .Eisenhower, to build a strategy upon the power of re- .allation. That means, he said, that the United States no longer must respond to every maneuver of the divisions from Korea to this de- Soviets but that It has a governing direction for choices It will mnki in its own major Interest. No Magic Formula He said the administration had not found a "magic formula" fo preventing any communist victory and he continued: "What we do expect to Insure If that any setbacks will have onl> temporary and local significanci because they will leave unim paired those free world nsset which in the long run will prevail "If we can deter such aggression as would mean general war, anc that is our confident resolve, then we can let time and fundamentals work for us." Dulles will fly to Berlin at the end of next week, probably to con fer with British Foreign Secretary Eden and French Foreign Minister Bldault before their meeting with Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov. The Big Four sessions are scheduled to open Jan. 25. The big issues are German reunification and a peace treaty for Austria. On the latter point, the Stateepartment made public late yesterday a note to Austria pledg Ing "every support" for Austrian Independence. The note was a reply to one urging that the three Western Powers press Russia for final settlement of the question.

The total vas 33 per cent higher than a year ago. (Continued from Page 1) strike had begun. This apparently caught Secretary of Labor Mitchell by surprise. He told newsmen he hadn't understood it WHS to work that way. A well-informed administration source said the strike poll idea was put forward by Secretary of Commerce Weeks at the suggestion of management groups and written Into the Smith bill at the White House. Weeks could not be reached for comment. AFL and CIO leaders denounced the plan as a "strike-breaking device." Sen. Murray (D-Mont). senior Democrat on the labor committee, referred to it in similar terms. So did other Democrats. But perhaps the most telling opposition cnme from Sen. Ives (RNY), second ranking Republican on the closely divided labor committee which numbers seven Republicans and six Democrats. Ives told newsmen he docs not like the President's strike vote idea—whether the balloting is to be held before or after a wnlkout gels underway. He said such n poll—which would be supervised by the National Labor Relations Board—Is actually an effort to question union leadership. The New Yorker also said he doubted "the rank and file would reverse themselves" in a government-sponsored poll lifter first agreeing to strike in a union-held vote. The furor over the strike poll proposal apparently made Smith relent from his stated opposition more committee hearings on TnflJ-Inrtley revision. Despite vigorous Democratic de- :nnncls for hearings on the Eisen- lowcr proposals, Smith had held irm against them, contending «11 the pertinent ground had been covered in lengthy hearings last year. But after committee Republicans met behind closed doors ys- rday, Smith told newsmen: "We will have to have hearings on the secret ballot issue." However, he said he wants to limit them "as far as possible."

Because this meat went into stomachs, it Is no longer i sword hanging over the head of .he cattle industry." The secretary said that through use of high, rigid supports for )asic field crops—but not for cat- e—"mountainous surpluses" of wine farm products have been jullt up. "At the same time, farm prices and incomes have continued the hree-year downtrend that began after the post-Korea peak In Fob- income tax.

The GOP farm chief said the Eisenhower administration's new farm program featuring flexible price supports would help producers of crops to make adjustments and win back customers who now, he said, are looking to other sources of supply because of high supports. so forth. Much of the rewriting is aimed at clarifying and simplifying the tax structure that has grown haphazardly for over 70 years without any general overhaul. One GOP member said a "substantial majority" of Republicans on the committee has agreed to back the major points in the revision program, discussed by them in a. series of private meetings over the past 10 days. Democrats complained that they had to wait for today's session to get their first official .information on specific poins in the program. They too have held private meetings on tax issues, but members reported no party-line decisions were reached. Some Democrats have complained that the tax revision program, as they understand it has been charted by Republicans, would give too much help to business and not enough to the man in the street.

Mundt (R-SD) said he doesn't think the farmers would get 100 per cent parity income out of flexible supports such as Eisenhower outlined in his new farm program Monday. Sen. Young ,(R-ND) said in a separate interview that McCarthy's idea was getting some backing among other Republicans. Won't Push Young said that while the GOP attitude on this and other proposals was jelling he Would not push his bill to continue the mandatory per cent supports for major field crops which Eisenhower, recommended be abandoned except In the case of tobacco. Young said he had told his Republican colleagues, however, that If the Democrats offered such a proposal—as some have indicated they would—he didn't think many Republicans would vote against it. Sen. Wiley (R-Wis) said tte was interested to getting a guarantee of 90 per cent supports for dairy products but he certainly wouldn't oppose McCarthy's 100 per cent proposal.
