THURSDAY, JANUARY 21,1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB Sec. Dulles Leaves For Big 4 Meeting WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dulles leaves for Berlin today to attend a Big Four foreign ministers conference which he concedes may wind up in a sharp East-West propaganda battle. OppositionGrows To Bricker Plan 35 Senators Said ,,^ Against Change In Treaty Power By JACK BELL WASHINGTON W) — Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn) said today 15 to 20 Democrats are ready to "stand behind President Eisenhower" by voting against any constitutional change in treaty-making powers. Humphrey said in an interview he believes the country's interest would be best served by defeating efforts of Sen. Bricker (R-Ohlo) to change the Constitution. Eisenhower has said adoption of Bricker's proposed, amendment would make It almost Impossible for him to deal with foreign nations In many fields. Bricker says his proposal is aimed at shielding state and individual citizens' rights from treaty invasion. Lawyers do not agree on how real the threat of such invasion is. Demos Against Change Republican 'eaders have been attempting to compromise with Bricker to eliminate provisions objectionable to the President, but Humphrey said that even if a compromise vs reached a Democratic bloc will vote against it and against the Bricker proposal. "Paradoxically, it may come jlpwn to the point where we Dem iterate who are against this tampering with the Constitution make up the largest number of those in the Senate who are willing to stand behind the President on this Issue," Humphrey said. Senate leaders figure that about 00 of the 96 senators are likely to bo present on a showdown vote on the proposal, which must have approval of two thirds of those voting for passage. If these estimates are correct, 31 senators could shelve the measure. Revision of it, However, requires only a majority of those voting. Humphrey said he doesn't believe . his group could muster enough votes to stop sue'- action, if a compromise is reache:' Bricker conceded in an interview that some of his backers are becoming "shaky," but he said he feels proponents of his measure can also apply pressure.

British and French foreign policy chiefs. The meeting is set to open Monday in the American sector of divided Berlin. Arrangements are for a three-week session. Accompanied by eight aides, Dulles was assigned President Eisenhower's plane, the Columbine, for the 13-hour nonstop flight. May Be Wasie Dulles said Tuesday the meeting will be a waste of time if Russian representatives pursue past tactics of trying to divide the West by playing off Prance against Germany. He also appealed for Mdlotov to show up in a "constructive mood" to pave the way for successful negotiations to unite Eastern and Western Germany into a single nation and complete Austria's independence settlement. Preconference Russian propaganda reportedly reinforced Dulles' jvowed fears that the conference has only the barest chance ol any agreement on these issues. Dulles is reported more hopeful of arranging later atomic discus;ions with Russia. He has arranged to meet Molotov separately to try to set up formal, secret negotiations on Eisenhower's Dec. plan for poling atomic resources for peaceful purposes.
