r SAGE TEN I,AHA.) Maulf Urges Consideration of Europe First W««t«rn Unity tvitknt 01 Big 4 Mttting Opens (ConttRuttf from Page 1) tl«BMd tbout at the entrance gate. He came 45 minutes early in order to , meet with Molotov on some conference arrangements. The Soviet minister trailed him by five minutes, racing up in a convoy pr««ded and followed by American »nd British riflemen. It must have been a. strange sight for Molotov to drive from the Russian embassy to the West frontier with comparatively no security measures apparent and then to bump Into the welter of them on the American side. Bidault and Eden arrived Just before the conference opened. The four ministers exchanged quips in high good humor in the marble corridors outside the conference room and then went into pose at the four delegation table for the photographers. After thi the camera men were herded ou tnd the doors of the conferenc room slammed shut. Dulles, Eden and Bidault alread had held three preliminary talk here to perfect their joint strateg for dealing with Molotov. America: officials were convinced they hai achieved a solid front. The Berlin conference seemei more likely to result in a strength ening of the drive for West Euro pean defenses against Soviet powe than in solving the problems o German unity, Austrian independ ence and cold war tensions gen erally. Yet some Western diplomats fell the mere Jact of the meeting opening: today had already produced some lessening of tension. Lut Meeting: In 1949 The Big Four ministers' lasl meeting wa» in mid-1949 after the Russians had lifted the Berlin blockade—which the American airlift had already broken. That meeting was their eighth. Since then, the West has Integrated and built its strength..Both the "United States and Russia have exploded hydrogen bomb devices. Joseph Stalin has died and Georgl Malenkov has taken over as premier of the Soviet Union. Also: a Republican party administration has displaced the Democrats in the United States. War has erupted and ended in Korea. The Big Four assembled in Berlin today to find whether these historic events had changed their relations. American officials were convinced no basic change has occurred—except that the estern Powers have grown stronger through cooperation, and the Communist empire has suffered internal strains since Stalin's death. The best same diplomats thought toe Berlin conference might produce were relatively minor adjustments to ease sore points. There was grave doubt the long- •talled Austrian treaty actually would be concluded here, although the Western nations were determined to press for it. Final Planning The Western ministers did their final strategy planning yesterday at the residence of Dr. James B. Conant. the U. S. high commissioner, with Dulles as host. As a result of their consultations, they have decided, among other things: 1. To reject outright Molotov's bid — foreshadowed in a public statement he made on his arrival Saturday — to Invite Communist China to make this a Big Five conference. 2. To reject the Red German bid for German participation in the oonfertoe* whenever Ocrmaa quMtloM come up. Ruinl* btcl the puppet Ettt Oermtn gover ment's propoul; the Western Pow en tra consulting outside, th conference with the West Germa government tnd will continue n< to recognize the Etst regime i all. t. To stick to their basic pollcle lor unifying Germ»ny, beginnin with free elections to create an tl German government and the pa ticipation of that government J formulation of a peace treaty. Russia wants to set up a pro visional government by mergln Ihe Red regime in the East and th Western government without election. The German Communist argu ment that the Germans have •ight to be represented in the con r erence was presented formal! yesterday in a letter to each of th Sig Four from East Premier Ott Grotewohl and Foreign Mlnlste Lothar Bolz. Peace Plan Predicted Allied diplomats predicted toda> hat Russia would propose a Oer man peace settlement providing fo he withdrawal of all foreign troop rom a united Germany pledged tc •emain "neutral." Though these sources predictec hat the Soviet plan would permi he Germans to have an army .vy and air force theoretical!; trong enough for the country's wn defense, it also would bar. her rom any coalition or military nl liance against any World War U ally. The West is certain to oppose any such proposition as the latter Russia wants such a guarantee to keep Germany out of the proposed European army, which the Soviets say is designed to make war on them. The West says the army is purely defensive and directed nt nobody. The Western Big Three were reported ready to tell Russia they would pledge their own armed forces to bind a reunited, rearmed ermany to keep the peace, but only on condition that the Soviets ie!p to achieve an acceptable German peace settlement. Such an offer, it was reported, was decided on ...instead of two other previous suggestions: (1) general nonaggression pact with Uissia, and (2) Prime Minister Churchill's proposal last May for a new pact similar to the Locarno Teaty, which after World War I iound its signatories to help any 'ictim of future German aggres- ion or to aid Germany 11 she were attacked. Estimates of how long the con- srence might last rahged from hree weeks to five or six. IKE (Continued from Pagt 1) ither lenders. The President pro- irl^ate instead of federal control.

McMath Still Undecided On Senate Race LITTLE ROCK W — Formw Oov. Sid McMath said yesterday he still 1« undecided whether to seek the Democratic nomination for the U. S. Senate, but offered several "p 1 a u s 1 b 1« platform planks." McMath, considered in unannounced candidate • to oppose Sen John L. McCIellan, said he is con ducting a survey to try to deter mine "my chances of winning, n next summer's primaries. He said that If he does run, h- will promise to seek more federa aid for education and highways construction. "Those are two o our biggest problems," McMath said. Interviewed on Little Rock tele, vision station KRTV's weekend press conference, the former governor said a federal education bil introduced by McClellim a«nd others recently does not go far enough. It would provide federa matching funds for school construction. McMath said: "We need more federal aid which Would be left to the states for administration. The states should be able to use the money for whatever purposes they deemed necessary, including teachers salaries, and not for construction alone." McMath said he had no way of knowing what effect his defeat at the hands of Gov. Francis Cherry in the 1952 gubernatorial campaign would have on his chances of winning a Senate seat. "However, if I decide not to run in the Senate race. I seek no other political office this year," he said. Since leaving the governor's office in 1953. McMath has. practiced law in Little Rock and operated a farm near Sheridan. Serving on the press panel were Carl Bell of the Associated Press; Ken Johnson, a Little Rock .correspondent for the Memphis Com' mercial Appeal, and Jim Swaim, publisher of the Lonoke Democrat. Bill Hadley. KRTV news director, was the moderator. DEMOCRAT down, declining neighborhoods. "The national interest demands the elimination of slum conditions and the rehabilitation of declining neighborhoods. "ManjCoirour local communities have made;; good progress in this work- and are eager to make further substantial improvements but are hard put to find the needed resources." Eisenhower said his federal loan- and-grant program for slum prevention and neighborhood salvage might need more funds later. As it progresses, he said, he will ask for more federal money. (Continued Jrorn Page 1) in the tax structure to shift the burden of taxation from corporations and stockholders—those most able to pay—to wage earners and salaried people." Ebcrharter said after the dividend proposal reaches full effect, a taxpayer with S2.100 in wages would pay $422 in taxes but a man with the same income from divl. dends would pay only S100 in taxes. However, Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey said last night in an NBC television interview, "What helps business helps the people . . . Things that help business create more tools, more jobs and Keep our economy going."
