News Analyst WASHINGTON AP History may show President Eisenhowers greatest contribution to the presi dency was his restraint in time of danger and critical stress Ap parently again it has just paid off In a weeks time there has been a definite relaxing of tension over Berlin Eisenhower has shown restraint a number of times when through emotionalism or aggressiveness could have precipitated un predictable events including war When the British French and Israelis invaded Egypt in and the Soviet Union threatened retaliation that would have meant world war cracked down on the Allies to stop and get out They did The Red on de stroying ionalist Chiang Chinese Kaisheks Na on Formosa at various times have bombarded the offshore islands of Quemoy and Matsu Eisenhower could have resorted o extreme steps He could have ordered Ameri can planes to bombard the Chi nese mainland This would have been a good 3et to bring on a war with Red Chinas ally the USSR Instead Sisenhower used less

bolster the defense oi the islands and sweat out the Rec attacks until the Communists quieted down Rebel Forces The same was true in Indochina when North Viet Nam was falling to rebel forces of Communist He Chirninh and the French colonial masters of Indochina were disin tegrating Eisenhower could have sent in American planes to bail out the French and smash the Commu nists This could have meant war with Red China Eisenhower didnt True half of Viet Nam was lost to the Reds But the rest of the country freed of the French be gan for the first time to have a democratic government of its own It can be argued that Eisenhow ers restraints ware a series of negative actions But Eisenhower responsible for the leadership not only of this country but of the Western world used restraint to avoid catastrophes There have been other in stances most recently the Berlin crisis created by Premier Nikita demanded last Allies get their troops put of West Berlin He ap peared to be setting a sixmonths deadline for it The West assumed he meant by May 27 The West stood firm in refusing to get out although the Allies eyed each other carefully wondering if any of them might weaken Since November Khrushchev has made puzzling statements some belligerent such as warn ing the West it faced war with the Soviet Union if the Allies refus ng to pull out their troops at empted to force supplies through Hommunist East Germany to their Berlin garrisons Sounds Heated At a couple of news conferences Sisenhower sounded a little heat ed when talking of Khrushchev and his Berlin demands He

poked hard at Khrush chev who kept insisting on a sum nit conference to settle things hat such a conference was use ess until the Soviet leader began showing more signs of willingness to negotiate Whether or not Khrushchev took this as a real knows But at nudge least in only he recent weeks he has talked less bellig erently put more stress on the value of negotiations and repeat edly said he wasnt setting a dead line or laying down an ultimatum Then last Monday night as if responding to increasing reason ableness from Khrushchev Eisen hower in his nationwide broadcast carefully avoided any sign of bel ligerency or irritation He went further than he ever had before although laying down some conditions in suggesting not only that a summit conference was possible but that it could be held this summer Thursday Khrushchev called a giant news conference He too sounded reasonable and praised Eisenhower for his reasonable ness ment for broken bones anc sprained muscles also could adc
