Dulles challenged Tuesday the view that friendly and Allied nations should be pressured to cut off all trade with Commu nist nations Dulles said in testimony pre pared for a congressional com mittee hearing on the mutual se curity program that there are many forces at work within the United States which would result in a further abdication of leader Additional Restrictions Among those forces he listed those who would seek to impose upon our friends and Allies addi tional restrictions upon their trade with the Communist world even in terms of nonstrategic articles While Dulles carefully chosen words had no reference to Sen Mc Carthy he expressed his view on the subject of Red trade a day after McCarthy abruptly broke off hearings on the issue with the demand to what Dulles thought about banning all Allied trade with Red China McCarthy had said he did not believe two officials who testified before his Government Operations Subcommittee that the United States does not now favor a flat ban on all such trade Thetwo officials were John M Leddy acting deputy assistant secretary of state for economic affairs and Kenneth R Hansen deputy to Mutual Security Director Harold E Slassen McCarthy told Assistant Secretary of State Thrus ton B1 Morton toget a clear cut statement on the Red China trade issue from Dulles No More Testimony I am not going to take any more testimony from this wit ness shouted McCarthy I get Mr Dulles assurance thai he is speaking for ttfe State De partment The passage of Dulles testimony bearing on the issue posed by Mc Carthy was this Many countries which have al ways World and particularly the United States as the source of greatest power both moral and material are be ginning to wonder whether the center of power has not shifted Irom Washington Moscow Even in the Western World there are nonCommunist elements ready and eager to take power upon a platform of appeasement of Soviet Communism or at least benevo lent neutrality toward Soviet Com munism This Juncture At this juncture there are many forces at work within the United States which would result in a further abdication of leader ship There are those who would sharply raise our tariff There are those who would sharply cut for eign aid There are those who would seek to impose upon our friends and Allies additional re strictions upon their trade with the Communist world even in terms of nonstrategic articles fRNEST HEMINGWAY in Fiction ARCHIBALD MacLEISH in Poetry Indian Bomb Was Firecracker BOMBAY India Bom may government said Tuesday a bomb found on a railroad track

Tuesday for in new foreign aid as a necessary defense for America itself against the Soviet threat President Eisenhower made the main plea in a special message to the lawmakers The detailed pre sentation was made by a parade of Cabinet members backed by Gen Omar Bradley chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in testi mony to a joint session of the Sen ate Foreign Relationsand House Foreign Affairs Committees Basic Purpose The basic purpose of this pro gram is simply the longterm se curity of the United States living in the shadow of the Soviet presidential message said Eisenhower noted that the bulk of the set up for military weapons and direct support to the defense efforts of our friends and called that division a measure of the perilin which free nations continue to live1 The blunt sober truth is that we cannot afford to relax our de fenses until we have seen clear unmistakable evidence of genuine ly peaceful purpose on the part of the Soviet Union the Presidenl said Outlet Speaks Secretary of State Dulles lead ing t off before the committees made virtually Jthi same argument in differing words and told the Congress member that if there is any error in th total figures the mistake has been in setting them too low While the request is 000 less than former President Tru man made in his farewell budge for the year starting July 1 it still is higher than many Congres members seem willing to go The reduction is not as greal as many of us would like to see Dulles having regard to the need to balance the budget to re establish our currency and eventu ally to reduce taxes The reduc ion is however as great as in our judgment can be reconciled with the essential security of the United States Presidents Message The Presidents message said As I strove to make clear to all peoples in my recent appeal Tor real peace and trust among lations we continue earnestly to hope for such evidence so that the vorld may turn its energies and resources to serving the needs rather than the fears of mankind Until Soviet good faith is proven by deeds the free nations must rely on their own strength for the preservation of peace To fail to continue vigorously to strengthen our military forces would be to risk wasting all our efforts for the Jast five years in defense of our iberties Eisenhower said his administra ion has given most careful study and deliberation to the foreign aid program Meantime Republican congres sional leaders said Tuesday Presi dents Eisenhowers plan to trim 200000 men from the Armed Forces willnot impair the real the nation Democrats privately expressed misgivings but declined public comment at this time Several in dicatedto reporters they are hold ingtheir fire until Eisenhow er formally1 announces the reduc tion 1 The

that President Eisen howers announcement last week of an 8Vi billioji dollar cutback in appropriation requests to Congress is based on continuing the military program at its present levels in the fiscal year beginning July 1 This would lop off the billion increase posed by Eisenhower has however that ministration will get of its dollars and thus attain approx imately the same combat strength
