good fortune and pleasant experience not long ago to spend a couple days at Camp McCoy where the annual training period for Army Reserv ists from my state was under way What 1 saw what I heard and what I felt was extremely im pressive 1 liked it so much that Im going to make it the subject of this little visit with you Ill be expanding on and interpreting what 1 examined at close range in the rugged Wisconsin camp site It may seem strange to you of a paradox that our young men could become enthusi astic over things military at the very time when were being told that a shooting war is fading as an immediate possibility The Russians are smiling as they never smiled before peacetime business in the U S is booming In short the likes of Salerno Koreas Kumwha Valley and the Yalu River air battles are pretty inuch out of mind But the Army Reservists through their actions and their words demonstrated at Camp McCoy as they do at their weekly getto gethers in their numerous home communities throughout the land that they are in dead earnest about this business of keeping America militarily strong Many Know War First Hand Many of the men currently in the Reserve program are veterans of past conflicts More than a few of the officers and men of the 103rd Infantry Division our lowa Minneiota unit served actively WarldWar II and the Korea police action These young men and they are PRINCIPALS IN RACE trial of two white men accused of murdering a Chicago Negro boy began Monday at Sumner Miss Shown in the top photo left to right are J W Milem 35 and his halfbrother Roy

trtatr which HM Unitwl mutt inclvcU Gtrmany a Ml and active scapa and provitwm of a security pact will Mwght among United Statti Britain and Garmany in ba thit secret talks are aimed at working eut a deal by which Weittrn leaders will hope persuade the Soviet Union to agree German unification en Western terms The Western talks will spread ever a period of several weeks and wp to the time that Secre tary of State Dulles British For eign Secretary Harold MacMillan and French Foreign Minister An toine Pinay meet with Russias V M Melotov at Geneva on Oct n Dulles returned to his desk Sat urday after two weeks of vaca tion He began intensive planning of Western strategy for the forth coming Geneva foreign minis ters conference which is expect ed to produce hard bargaining on Germany and other European problems despite the soft talk exchanged by President Eisen hower and Soviet Premier Bul ganin at the Big Four summit sessions last July The United States has been de veloping a variety of proposals for dealing with the German and European security problems in the hopo that the combination of pressures such as Russias pre sumed need for trade with the West and inducements such as new security guarantees in Europe can change Russias titudo on unification The present Soviet policy is that the time is not ripe for merging East and West Germany and wont be until Germany can definitely be broken away from the Western alliance In effect Russia appears ready to stand on the present division of Europe indefinitely That probably ex plains as much as any one factor can the Soviet desire to estab lish diplomatic relations with the West German government after yoars of denouncing it Dulles believes that any pack age deal with which the West seeks to encourage Russias in terest in unifying Germany will have to include at least throe items 1 A security treaty to assure Russia against any new German aggression 2 A guarantee by the Western Powers that East Germany would not be used as the place for NATOs forward strategy 3 Limited disarmament in Europe thinking that this may prove to be one of the practical results of the prospective Big Four negotiations Juan Peron Agrees
