He told the Indian Parlia- ment the United States is committed to a search for ;enuine disarmament but is maintaining strong forces against aggression and added: "They serve not only for ourself but our friends and allies, who, like us, have per- ceived this danger. They so ;erve for defensive purposes only." The members of Parliament applauded frequently. But :here was not a sound wHen :he President spoke of the :ruits of weakness. With the threats of Red China in mind, it was possible they were shaken by his remarks. NOR WAS THERE any' audible reaction when the President made clear Amer- ican determination to provide adequate forces to resist aggression, though it seemed plain he was referring to the threat to India from Red China. Eisenhower spoke to a joint session of the Indian Parlia- ment, which for weeks has; been discussing what attitude- India should take toward China. This week it upheld, prime minister's policy, which is "a go-slow attitude of firm- ness and preparednes. There were 17 interruptions for applause but some were; mere ripples.

Ikes Trip Results Exceed Best Hopes, Herfer Says WASHINGTON retary of State Christian A. Herter said today that President Eisenhower had had extremely satisfactory discussions with foreign governments chiefs on his present 11-nation tour. Herter told a news con- ference that the public ac- ceptance of the President in every country he has visit- ed exceeded the greatest expectations which Herter and other U. S. officials had for the trip. Herter himself leaves Sat- urday for Paris to attend a meeting of the North At- lantic Treaty Council be- ginning Tuesday, and to join Eisenhower in a West- ern summit session begin- ning Dec. 19. He said the United States, may suggest at the NATO meeting a method for studying the problem of NATO cost-sharing so that a greater portion of the load would be borne by countries other than the United States. The United States will not take a dogmatic posi- tion on this issue, Herter said, but will try to work out in conjunction with Al- lied governments the prob- lems of cost of the joint de- fense of Western Europe. Herter said the United States intends to go through with full discussion with other NATO countries of all issues of interest to them, including matters which are being handled primarily by the big powers.
