MONDAY, JANUARY 3, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE 'Co-Existence' Isn't Even Word to Turks My LEON DENNKN NEA Staff Correspondent ISTANBUL, Turkey—(NEA) —Peaceful "co-existence," Soviet-style, isn't even a word in the ordinary Turk's language. And with reason: for the past 300 years the Turks have resisted, with courage and tenacity, the mounting tide of Muscovite imperialism — both Czarlst and Communist. They still do. Turkey knows the Russians as few NATO powers do and prefers to keep her powder dry—despite Moscow's honeyed words about "peaceful co-existence." The man-in-the-streei is thus baffled by the flood of propaganda in favor of "co-existence" now broadcast from the U. S. Baffled is perhaps a mild word: Turkey, America's staunchest friend in NATO, is completely confused by the sudden pro-"co-existence" twist in President Eisenhower's foreign policy.. Said noted Turkish engineer who knows and respects the U. S.: President Eisenhower Is obvi-' ously out to gain friends and influence people. But will Washington's new soft policy change the mind of a single Red or influence even one French intellectual? Hardly." However, the engineer added: "By confusing ihe Turks the U. S, U endangering the nation's will to resist Red aggression." A Western diplomat, an unusually qualified observer, was equally emphatic in hfs remarks, if not quite diplomatic. He said: "The State Department obviously aims to appease the French. But Washington's new policy is playing havoc with the Turks. And yet one Turkey is worth two Frances with Premier Mendcs-France thrown into thu bargain." As .see from tlie Middle East, especially in Turkey, the "nev/ look" In U. S, foreign policy— which is likely to. result in another sterile Big Four conference—-will in the end benefit only the Russians. lis effect on Turkey is particu- lary unfortunate because: 1. Turkey, a dictatorship only 10 years ago, is today by far the most stable democratic country in the Middle East—more stable than many European nations. 2. The man-in-the-streeL, peasants included, is remarkably well informed on the main points at issue in major internal and international problems. 3. The Turks' pro-U, S. orientation and ingrained distrust of Moscow make Turkey an invaluable source of strength in the Middle East as a deterrent to Red agression. Alone, Turkey—with her army of 370,000 tough and well-trained men— is no match for Russia. However, association with other non- Communist nations she ranks high up in military potential—certainly higher lhan a number of other countries who receive larger benefits from the U. S. pork barrel. These are elementary facts, but they are important to any understanding of Turkey. From the U. S. point of view there Is another fact equally significant: unlike France, Britain or even Italy or Germany, Turkey is the only genuinely pro-American country in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. An American does not have to be long in Turkey to realize that he is among true friends. MASS TIlIAL OF TURKISH REDS, Some of whom are shown here after arrest in 1953. underlines Turkey's distrust of Moscow. As one Turkish official put it: "We know a great deal more about the U.S. than you know about Turkey." That's the truth. Alter years of corrupt Ottoman rule and Aiaturk's dictatorship it took "Johnny Turk" a long time to discover the U.S and American democracy. But once he discovered the great and mysterious' land across the ocean his enthusiasm for "Amerika" never waned. To be sure, Turkey's democracy, after years of dictatorship, H emerging but slowly. It still has manny pitfaUs to overcome. The country's economy, due to industrial cverexpansion and poor U.S. advice, is not in the best shape. Yet despite all the drawbacks. Turkey is a vital pilot project in America's way to win allies to resist Red aggression. Senate, House Members to Get Meditation Room Will Be Quiet, Secluded Area; First in History By CHARLES F. BARRETT WASHINGTON Iff)—For the first time in' 167 years of congressional history, senators RIIQ House members this year will have a special, secluded room for quiet meditation. .

The Idea is to provide H completely private, quiet, restful spot —in the midst of, yet somehow removed from — the tensions and pressures of politics and legislative action. Aii office just off the Capitol rotunda—halfway between the House and Senate—has been remodeled • for this It is only about 17 feet .-square. Window Donated It wili have a large blue and while stained ^lass window, lighted from behind. Workmen in California's 21st concessional district are volunteering labor in off hours to make the window.

The of ihe room has been completed. A large plain oak altar stands in front of the window. A green carpet extends out from the altar. Restful chains, spaced along the soft blue walls, will be separated by small wooc screens for more complete privacy. A table near the entrance will hold Bibles, prayer books, and other reading materials. Clergymen of the Catholic, Jewish, Protestant and other faiths were consulted to see that members of all faiths would find the room suitable. Rep. Brooks Hays (D-Ark). one of the sponsors of a resolution pro viding for the room, snid it stem' med from n comment by Sen Monroncy (D-Oklai, who sugpesl ed it would be a good thing to have a room at the Capitol "where the mood of prayer could be en couragcd." Vienna Seeks To Recapture Its Old Gaiety VIENNA, Jan. 3 (P) — Occupied Vienna, once a capital of wine, women, waltzes and apple strudel, is determined to recapture its old-time gaiety in the coming carnival season. Nearly 2,000 balls will be staged in seven weeks beginning Wednesday to help Viennese forget the cares of .the cold war. The baits range from the formal white tie dance of the Vienna Philharmonic Society to a costume affair of the city's chimney sweeps. Even the Austrian government will discard the cares of four-power occupation. Chancellor Julius Raab vtll open the BalJ for the Viennese Wednesday. Foreign Minister Leopold Figl will preside at ihe dance given by the swank Riding Club, an affair usually attended by everyone who claims to be anyone here. For those who can't afford expensive fun, there will be a wide variety of entertainment at less cost. They even can go to the ball of the city's undertakers.

Although Atomic Energy Commission and military scientists have proof-fired the Army's 280- mm cannon with a nuclear shell, there has been thus far no known trial of a nuclear guided missile or rocket.
