CITY IOWA FRIDAY APRIL Yl 1HO 7e Copy Thli rf Two HOMf EDIT FTOM mi Rhee being urged to dump vice president Herter to start his 2nd year By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau American diplomac y Charles G Dawes U S am bassador to the Court of St James 192932 once remarked is easy on the brain but heJl on the feet For this Henry P Fletcher ambassador and ca reer diplomat had the logical rejoinder It depends on which you use Secretary of State Christian A Herter sounding out his first year in office has had to make energetic use of both Like his predecessor John Foster Dulles Herter believes in personal and peripatetic diplomacy Dulles traveled slightly more than 78 000 miles at home and abroad in his first year in office Her ter bit more than 84000 SOMEHOW HOWEVER Her ter doesnt seem to have been all that busy and that perhaps pins down the chief difference between him and the man he served as Under Secretary of State Dulles was constantly making his presence known He spoke easily and often Herter is mild and seems guided by Disraelis aphorism Nature has given us two ears but only one mouth It was said of Dulles that he carried his office in his hat He insisted that briefing papers be kept to onepage length Herter is a staff man This was demonstrated most dra matically last September when Herter in spite of President Eisenhowers apparent misgiv ings brought back from exile in the Philippines Charles E Chip Bohlen a leading State Department expert on Soviet Russia Herters only apparent failure to do his homework came in November when he at first refused to take any sides in the SinoIndian border dis pute This was promptly cor rected De Gaulle gets warm welcome at Washington WASHINGTON UP French President Charles de Gaulle flew into Washington Friday to receive a warm welcome from President Eisenhower and open four days of summit strategy talks Eisenhower personally head ed the welcoming party which waited in a warm sun at Na tional Airport as De Gaulles special Air France flight from Toronto Canada came in After a stay here he will visit New York San Francis co and New Orleans before leaving the country N ews in a utshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES WASHINGTON Cen sus Bureau said its 1960 pop ulation count is running well ahead of the 1950 rate Asof Thursday night the bureau said 159962981 people had been per cent of the expected total count of about 180000000 Jean Seberg is at home with her parents in Marshalltown recuperating from an illness which required her to be hos pitalized in France last week The ailment was described as due to overwork in connection with publicity for her newest Columbia picture WASHINGTON eign aid critics set out to whittle a billion and a h a 1 f dollars from the pro gram approved Thursday by the House MURPHY NC Sheriff C M Anderson said it wasnt his fault the grand jury ac cused him of running a sloppy jail Just before the jurors made their inspection the prisoners threw food all over the jail floor he explained Unrest in S Korea continuing SEOUL Korea An ex premier Friday urged Presi dent Syngman Rhee to dump Vice Presidentelect Lee Ki Poohg target of anligovern ment rioting He indicated Rhee is considering this action The expremier Y T Pyun spoke with a reporter after a conference with Rhee at the end of another tense day during which 10000 teenage students demonstrated in the nearby port of Inchon Pyun said Rhee has a definite plan for solving South Koreas grave political crisis He has formed certain ideas in his mind regarding what to do Pyun said His ideas are roughly along my lines PYUN FORMERLY a close associate of Rhee has become increasingly critical of the gov ernments domestic policies Now an English professor Pyun has been mentioned as a possi ble member of a reshuffled Cabinet The Inchon demonstrators shouted for the resignation of Lee declaring his election with Rhee March 15 was rigged The youths smashed four windows hi headquarters of Rhees Lib eral party Unlike the rioting Tuesday in Seoul and other major cities there was no bloodshed The police already severely cri ticized for killing protest marchers Tuesday fired three blank shells

secretary of the Cham ber of Commerce Mayor George Mendon and Ralph Shelton the chambers general manager Grand award to Mason City for its industrial activities AT THE SAME TIME Herter has used President Eisenhow ers great popularity abroad as a new diplomatic weapon In withdrawing to the background he has had the spotlight direct ed full on the Chief beginning with the Khrushchev visit to the United States and continuing with Ikas grand tour of Europe and Asia and the Latin American goodwill mis sion These are not the kind of projects one would normally associate with Foster Dulles Dulles in his last few months in office seemed to be growing more flexible though he still looked to Soviet Russia tor deeds not words as a summit conference prerequisite Herter has been conciliatory as evi denced in the Geneva disarma ment and nuclear test ban con ferences and the Francefrus trated attempt to hold an early summit meeting THERE ARE obvious differ ences Dulles was least initially from a deck marked massive retaliation Herter has had to adjust to the reality of a maxim set forth by Walter Lippmann that in for eign relations a policy is formed only when commitments and power are brought into balance On big issues such as Berlin Herter has seemed as firm as Dulles It is difficult to imagine a Dulles being as patient with Castros Cuba as Herter has been quietly maintaining a willingness to discuss prob lems But Herters quiet has elsewhere proved effective no tably in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization where the intransigence of France appears to have been if not dissolved at least considerably abated On the estimate of his op ponents Herter would appear well qualified to have taken over the Dulles team Izvestia in commenting on an address by Herter graded him poor for his reliance on cold war phraseology to answer Soviet efforts at coexistence SIOUX A young Sioux City man was bound over to the Woodbury County Grand Jury on a charge of as sault with intent
