Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 29, 1957, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for Drive by Soviets UnlUsd Pfesi Full Lean N CITY GLOBEGAZETTE HI NEWSPAPER THAT MAKIS ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS COP MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY NOVEMBER 29 1957 Missile Bases Plan Blasted By B J Cutler New York Herald News Service MOSCOW The Kremlin has started a drive to cripple the American plan to establish mis sile bases in western Europe So far the brunt of the propa ganda and scare warnings has been directed against Great Bri tain the only North Atlantic Treaty Organization member to which the United States already has agreed to supply missiles Specialists in propaganda ex pect that the campaign will be greatly intensified before next months NATO meeting at Paris which President Eisenhower will attend and at which a chain of bases for 1500mile missiles will be discussed Prime Objective Because of recent rocket de velopments here and abroad the defeat of any move toward the establishment of American mis sile bases in Europe is now con sidered the Kremlins prime po liticalmilitary objectives The Soviet government has an nounced it has developed an in tercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the United States and has described this as a military advantage The United States does not have the ICBM but has made considerable prog ress on intermediaterange mis those capable of reaching Russia from European bases Gaining NATO bases for such missiles would offset Russias alleged ICBM advantage There fore the Kremlins bristling re action to the news that missile bases will be discussed at the NATO meeting came as no sur prise here Game of Madness Typical of the press was the newspaper Soviet Russia pub lished by the Communist partys Central Committee It described as a game of madness reports that missiles would be based in thinly populated parts of Britain For each missile launched So viet Russia warned Britons they can expect to get 10 in return And in this case all England ap parenUy will turn into a very very thinly populated locality The newspaper sharply at tacked Secretary of State John Foster Dulles recent statement at a press conference that the NATO allies were eager to have missile and nuclear bases for their defense It stated Are they eager They are eager in the way that a home owner is eager to have gunpowder stockpiled in his cellar Dulles inclination toward balancing on the brink of war is well known but this does not mean in the least that people want to balance on the brink of life and death Endanger Country Russia charged that the bases program amounted to forcing all kinds of ways for suicide on west ern Europe Other propaganda organs m mcanwhile concentrated in stilling fears in Britain that bases of the United States Stra tegic Air Command represented danger to the country In whose hands is the destiny of England asked the government newspaper Izvestia The result is it warned that England can be thrown into the abyss of a new war because units of American Strategic Avia tion and stockpiles of American atomic and hydrogen bombs are located on its territory Izvestia also sought spread suspicion of American military leaders by alieging they regarded Britain as one of the American bases but not a sov ereign and independent power Plans to Sell Clive Honor Farm Approved DES
