East Given Major Attention NEW YORK WlSecretary Dulles said Wednesday night the United States wont defend Chinese coastal islands as but im plied it will fight if the Reds try to seize the isles as a springboard for conquest of Formosa In a major foreign policy ad dress he declared the United States would be alert to Chinese Communist actions in the area while rejecting for ourselves any initiative of warlike Dulles in addressing a dinner of the Foreign Policy Association made these other main points 1 He rejected an idea report edly favored by some British of ficials that Nationalist China vol untarily surrender to the Reds all the offshore islands He said It is doubtful that this would serve either the cause of peace or the cause of Personal Fights 2 The recent upheaval in Mos cow which put Marshal Nikolai Bulganin in the premiers role is an elemental personal struggle for power but it may also reflect a basic policy difference be tween the Russian Communist Party and the Soviet government If of stature will put their nations welfare first in stead of subordinating it to the Communist drive to win the world then indeed there could be a basis for worthwhile negotiations and practical agreements with the new 3 Fear among Asian people that the United States has no real in tention of supporting them in oppo s i t i o n to Communism has mounted to the danger But he stressed the American people have made known their determi nation to restrain those who vio lently menace liberty and the Eisenhower administration will soberly execute this policy Far East Picture Dulles spoke out in a farranging word address which dealt mainly with the critical Far East picture Dulles in his cautiouslyworded address which apparently con tinued the policy of keeping the enemy did not Quemoy or Matsu by name j The United States he said is firmly committed to the defense of Formosa and the Pescadores the main nationalist strongholds This country he added has no commitments and no purpose to defend the coastal positions as The words as such were underlined in his prepared text But he said the Chinese Com inunists are treating the coastal isles as a means to the end of conquering Formosa He noted that the Reds said after Ameri can forces helped Nationalist Chi nese evacuate the Tachen Islands that this created favorable con ditions for the drive to liberate Formosa Senatorial reaction was mixed A very good said Sen George Foreign Rela tions Committee chairman Sen Morse a critic of admin istration Formosa policy said the speech contained some double Sen Humphrey

MOINES MVA bill which would permit private clubs to store and serve liquor belonging 0 members even though the club has a beer license was passed 38 12 by the Senate Thursday after warm debate It now goes to the House The measure does not legalize the sale of liquor by the drink The bill also permits hotel guests to have liquor in their rooms with out jeopardizing a hotels beer permit but it does not permit li quor in public places of the hotel where beer or food are sold Additionally the measure per mits liquor to be stored on coaches club cars and pullmans of railroads which have Iowa beer permits but does not legalize the serving of such liquor in Iowa by the railroad companies NO Before the final roll call the law makers beat down an amendment which in effect would have changed the measure to be prohibiting any person from having liquor in a place where beer is sold Sen Frank C Byers whose committee drew the bill opened the debate by saying the OHwr Storiet on Page 2 measure was intended to clarify the law defining premises where liquor may be kept He said confusion arose from a recent ruling by Atty Gen Day ton Countryman holding that li quor could not be kept even in members private lockers in clubs holding class B beer permits I want to say in defense of the young attorney general that he was only doing his Byers said But his ruling upset a practice of private clubs which had pre viously been declared legal in an earlier attorney generals opinion Not Public This bill would simply legalize what has been held to be legal all along that club members have the right to drink liquor where they please so long as it is not in pub ic And a private club has been held not to be a public Byers said he understood the bill ias the blessing of Gov Leo A Hoegh and added that it is only de signed to keep from putting pri vate clubs and some hotels out of business hope there is no split on the ssue of wet or dry because this is not a wet and dry Byers said The measure will not cause any more drinking now goes on You can dry up the state even drier than it God knows it s dry enough people who want liquor are going to get Sen Earl Elijah RClarence proposed the amendment which ivould have killed all the provi sions of the bill and substituted a clause prohibiting any person in cluding patrons from taking hard iquor into a place where beer is sold I understand that in some tav erns there are socalled bottle men o keep the liquor in their pocket and give a drink to anybodywho vants to buy Elijah said This makes it difficult for offi ers to make

The Senate voted down the amendment 3811 after Sen De vere Watson RCouncil Bluffs de clared that socalled bottle men arc subject to arrest under present law He said Elijahs amendment would neither aid the law enforce ment officers nor increase penal ties if the bottle men are caught Sen Henry Heideman RRock well City argued against the bill saying it would open the door to bringing back the old
