Kremlins policy in the Middle East is predicated on an assumption that Turkey will cave in under the tension of a war of nerves it is going to be mighty disappointed with results A Turk the modern Turk that is just doesnt scare easy This was the overriding im pression I gained a half dozen years ago on a factfinding mis sion that look me into Turkey and Ive never had occasion to modify it even slightly Within the year Ive been back in Istan bul What was true on my pre vious visit there seemed truer still today Communist pressure is old stuff to the Turks Maybe they should be but as a matter of unques tionable fact they arent even slightly afraid of the Russian bear when it stands up on its hind legs and growls its loudest That amazing character in modern Turkey Mustapha Kemal Pasha implanted in the Turk a fullflowered conviction that one Turk with bayonet or even bare hands is more than a match for two Russians with ma chine guns I myself dont think thats true But aridthis is what counts the Turks do A TrumpedUp Story For weeks the Kremlin has been warning Turkey to leave Syria alone In an interview in the New York Times James Reston bet ter known to the profession as Scotty Reston found Khrush chev more violent on the sub ject of Turkey than on anything else He came back time and again to the charge that the Turks were being egged on by the United States Actually

their vulnerability to Russian attack Along Turkeys extended northern boundary lie Russia itself the Russiancontrolled Black Sea and Russiandominated Bulgaria To the south lies Syria openly pro Soviet All of this adds up to what might be called a geographical vise Truman Doctrine Born The Kremlins pressure on Tur key began a dozen years ago It took the form of a territorial de mand and Greece was caught in the Thais when what come to be known as the Truman Doctrine came into be ing Both countries were given economic and military help and the Commies moved back from whence they had cofhe In 1952 Turkey joined the North Atlantic Treaty Organization bet ter known as NATO and in 1955 joined with Iraq in a mutual de fense arrangement which subse quently was expanded into the much publicized Baghdad Pact Presently the Russian approach is one of bluster But it wasnt al ways so For several years Mos cow tried to butter up the An kara government by offering new industries trade barter arrange ments undying friendship and all that sort of thing But the hard bitten Turks didnt fall for honeyed words any more than theyre truckling now to hard spoken words Turkey and the Turkish spirit of today are something quite dif ferent from the Turkey and the Turkish spirit which existed up to thirtyfive years ago Then tnd for very good reason Tur CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 3200 Acres of Beans Still
