Truman Khrushchev may claim, did not grow out of Berlin and Germany, and, therefore, problems affecting and- in- volving Berlin and Germany should not now be permitted to develop into a serious threat to the peace. The cold war grew out of the fact that Rus- sia refused to stand by agree- ments made at Yalta and Potsdam. Khrushchev's d i p 1 omatic tactics and his sudden and calculated shifts- of position are intended to confuse and divide us from our allies un- der the NATO, treaty and to divert world attention from the Soviet Union's military oc- cupation of her neighbors.

With the bill's signing, Hawaii could, by fart action, get officially into the Union by next July. Thli would be in time to send members to the present ses- sion of congress. October is more likely, however. It took six months to add Alaska's forty-ninth star to the flag on Jan. 3. Eisenhower said it gave him great satisfaction to sign the measure. He recalled that he had been urging state- hood for Hawaii since he became president, and added: "Under this legislation, the citizens of Hawaii will soon decide whether their islands shall become our fiftieth state. In so doing, they will demonstrate anew to the world the vitality of the principles of freedom and self determination the principles upon which this nation was founded 172 years ago."
