Abilene Reporter News (Newspaper) - March 22, 1954, Abilene, Texas POSSIBLE SHOWERS Wk Abilene 3^ej)orter MORIVING VOL LXXIII, No. 279 AsMtciated Preês (AP) ABILENE, TEXAS, MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 22, 1954—TWELVE PAGES PRICE DAILY 5c, SUNDAY 10c Saar Talks / Stalemated BONN, Germany. March 21    — Leaders of two West German government parties and the opposition »S)cialists called today for rejection of the newest French proposal tor Europeanization of the Saar. Talks on this stubborn postwar problem ground to a temporary halt. Further negotiations on the quarrel over future control of the coal-rich border basin probably will be held up until Chancellor Konrad Adenauer returns from his trip to Turkey this weekend. The French want the issue settled before tbey ratify the European Defense Community Pact. The Germans think that timing is wrong. • French .sources said the .Saar talks here between .^ndre Fran-cois-Poncet, the French high commissioner. and Herbert Blankcn-horn, West German ambassador at large, have run into difficulties. Hut they said there is no hint they have been suspended or broken off. One high French official said there was no reason to suppose a solution would not be worked out eventually. Adenauer Ready One m:^or i)roblem is that while Adenauer is reported ready to compromise on the Saar for the sake of EDC his partners in the four-party coalition government •re not so ready to do so. Heinrich Hellwege, Adenauer’s minister for relations with the Bundesrat (upper house of parliament), and leader of the right wing German party, said West Germans could only approve of “such a change (Europeanization) in the Saar's status if a European community is achieved at the same time.” Erich Ollenhauer. Socialist chairman, told a party conference in Hausham. Bavaria, the “so-called Europeanization wanted by Paris is actually the legalization of a cold annexation performed by France as an occupation power.” Chairman Thomas Dehler of the Free Democratic party, .second strongest in the Adenauer four-party coalition, told a rally in the Ruhr his party would “not accept any solution which perpetuates the autonomy of the Saar.” The French Saar proposal, which Adenauer took to Paris earlier this month as a basis for discussion, follows the general lines of a plan suggested by a Dutch Socialist fir putting the Saar under a neutral commissioner. French Won’t Share The French, however, have declined to share their present trading privileges in the Saar wd'h West Germany until after a common European market may be established .some time in the future Hellwege charged that “the spirit which cannot forget is reigning in France,” Hellwege also criticized foreign apprehension about the “danger of new German militarism.” “We can say in good conscience that millions of Germans in thti second w'orld war were just as remote from militaristic convictionr as the voters in the last W’est German election were remote from ideas of revenge or restoration of nazism,” Hellwege asserted. Dehler insisted the Bonn peace contract for restoration of German sovereignty must be put into effect by the Western powers regardless of what France votes on the European Army. “Frances difficulties should not be underestimated,” Dehler added, “for she is conducting a difficult fight for liberty in Indochina,’ Demos Ask Boost To Combat Slump PUBLIC WORKS ADVISED McCorthy Asks Use Of Lie Detectors W.\SHIXGTON.

The Committee for Economic Department (CED), private but influential research organization of bus-ine.ssmen and economists, said that while moderate economic swings arc inevitable, a major depression can be avoided. The CED policy sfdtcment described the country’s built-in de-fcn.scs against economic decline as being “.strcng—stronger than ever before—but they can be strengthened further.” It cautioned however, that it would be hazardous to use tax cuts or public works in dealing with “small, .short and uncertainly forecast recessions.” “The stimulating effect would probably not start until the need for it had passed,” it said, “and would continue even though it ere- „    , ated a danger of inflation.”    Baptists    by    the    hundreds    were The committee acknowledged it | POuring into Abi^^^iuie Monday couldn't set up a yardstick for de-1 morning for the Texas Baptist Baptists Flood Abilene Today was .such that all visitor.s can be Geneva T alks May Hinge on Indochina ^    -    ---- victorv    to needed.
