MONDAY, JANUARY 18,1954 BLYTHETTLl/B (ARK.) COURIER NEW! PAOITRRBV Big 4 Berlin Meeting Will Bring Veterans Of Cold War Together Inside Lead BIG 4 BERLIN 2-30 TA39 By JAMES MARLOYV WASHINGTON (AP) — An invisble sign — "No child ren Allowed" — will hang outside the conference room door when the Big Four foreign ministers meet in Berlin Jan. 25, Not one of the four — on one side the United States' Dulles, Britain's Eden, Prance's Bidault and on the other side Russia's Molotov — has any resemblance to a babe in the thorny woods of ^ East-West relations. They have dealt with each other many times before, in many ways. Neither the Allies nor the Russians can have any illusions about what they're up against and perhaps not much hope for any progress through talking. All of them, nevertheless, may well be self- conscious when they meet. For this conference is the result of multiple pressures from the people of the world, expressed or implied, upon their leaders to make some effort toward peace beside the unimaginative reliance upon weapons. In Stalin's later years, thanks thanks mostly to him, the West and Russia were not on speaking terms. Face to face, that is. If they talked at all it was across continents in interviews and speeches or through ambassadors or notes. Concerned for Appearances When Malenkov succeeded Stalin and mumbled about peace, the Allies saw a chance to show the rest of the world, they at least would like to break the ice. They peppered Moscow with requests for a conference. That .Molotov agreed to go to Berlin is probably due more to concern about how Russia would 'tt ^°°^ ^ ^ e re ^ usec * than hope, or " desire, for peace or any willingness to yield an inch. For that matter, there's no sign the West will yield any inches either at Berlin. What Russia apparently fears most in Western Europe is a single European army, including France and a rearmed West Germany, and backed by the United States and Britain. Russia has psychological as well as military reasons. So long as Western Europe has not decided to set up the army, its people can retain the luxury of hoping they won't have to make that decision, with the sacrifices it implies. They remain divided as to whether they should and open to promises dangled by Moscow if they don't, is divided on the single army idea. And, the longer Western Europe Its old enmities and rivalries Btay alive, the better the chance for the local Communist parties to make hay from within. Pressure Fositicu Further, Western Europe, fully armed and realizing its strength, would be in a position to pressure Russia for concessions which the 12 Soviets, seem determined never to ^ yield by reason or peaceful persuasion. So far, by its tactics and propaganda, Russia has done extremely well in helping Western Europe stay divided. The hope of a single army looks more forlorn daily. At Berlin, if Molotov continues these teactics, as he undoubtedly will, by playing off the United States, Britain and France against one another, weakening their alliance, his mission in Russian eyes will be a great success. The three Allies can't play off Molotov against anyone, unless it is world opinion, of which Moscow is aware but to which it never makes basic concessions. Since Western Germany — rearmed or unarmed — is the key to any settlement in Europe, the Berlin conference seems doomed not to open the innermost door to peace. Russia wants Germany to remain unarmed. Dulles said only last week a rearmed Western Germany must be the foundation tone of Allied strength in Europe. There are other points on which Russia and the United States will not agree at Berlin, but the disagreement on Germany is enough for a starter. British See Vast Atomic Development LONDON >ffl — A British government report says that within 20 years nuclear energy may provide about a fourth of Britain's estimated ,;ower needs. The 100-page report, entitled "Britain's Atom Factories" was made public yesterday. It was written by Kenneth Jay, 44, principal scientific officer at the big Harwell atom research plant. Jay said the nuclear fuel might be developed in the next two decades to produce as much electricity as 20 million tons of coal. This is the amount by which Britain's coal production is expected then to fall short of the country's needs. If certain assumptions turn out to be valid, Jay added, "It might ultimately be possible completely to replace coal by nuclear fuel for the generation of electrical power In the United Kingdom." British Supply Minister Duncan Sandys said in a foreword to Jay's report that Britain had moved in the past year from the puetiy research stage into regular atomic energy production. Stranded Fishermen Ride Ice Floe 3 Hours MUSKEGON, Mich. (ff) —Seventy stranded fishermen rode an ice floe for three hours yesterday on Bear Lake after waves .from a passing Lake Michigan oil.tanker caused an breakup. Police, firemen and volunteers brought the fisherman to shore in rescue boats. None was farmed. Yen for Delicacy BALTIMORE (/P) — The chopped- off heads of three silver pheasants were found in a cage yesterday at the Baltimore Zoo. The bodies of the birds were missing. Police think the poacher might have had a yen for the delicacy. From the 16th to 1th century, hundreds of thousands of North Africans lived by piracy alone, according to the Encyclopedia Brtt- annica. ...if its washable UT US LAUNDER IT!
