Partnership fo Asia Backed by U S Military By ERNEST B VACCARO Sail Francisco Truman set the world stage Wed nesday for an unprecedented counter offensive to soviet peace propaganda He offered a full partnership of peace to all Asia backed up by United States mil itary might The state departments Voice Of America bombarded every reachable listener with a constant repetition of Trumans warning to the peoples of the far east that Russia is trying to turn them into colonial slaves of a new imperi alism And the president left for the Russian politburo a bond and blunt reminder that the United States will not stop short of war to resist aggression and preserve our free way of life Mr Truman flew back to Wash ington shortly after delivering his major foreign policy speech Tues day night in the War Memorial opera house where the United Na tions charter was born 5 years ago 14400Mile Flight He left San Franciscos inter national airport at am CST on the last 8hour leg of a 14400mile round trip flight dur ing which he talked with General Douglas MacArthur on Wake is land about what he said were the dangers which still face us What we want is a partner ship for peace with all the world Mr Truman told a cheering audi ence He said we want peace but it must be a peace founded upon justice That American pol icy is as old as our republic and it is stronger today than ever be fore in our

If the Soviets really want peace Mr Trumancontinued they can prove it by living up to the principles pfihe United Na tions by joining the rest of the United Nations in calling upon the North Koreans to lay their arms at once and by lifting the iron curtain and permitting thefree exchange of information and ideas and finally by joining with the UN to establish a system of collective security which will permit the elimination of the atomic bomb and the drastic reduction and reg ulation of all other arms and armed forces Mr Truman countered Russias peace propaganda by tagging that country with responsibility for fear and unrest in both Asia and in Europe and said the United States and associated nations will continue to build up their arms to resist attack Threat to Peace The Soviet Union and its co lonial satellites said the presi dentin the course of a long and bitter indictment are maintain ing armed forces of great size and strength In both Europe and Asia their vast armies pose a con stant threat to peace So long as they persist in maintaining these forces and in using them to intimidate other countries the freemen of the world have but one choice if they are to remain free They must oppose strength with strength This is not a task for the United States alone It is a task for the free nations to undertake together And the freenations are undertaking it together
