WASHINGTON W American diplomats were understood today to view South Korean President Syngman Rhee's threat to march against North Korea as a bluff- just what he said it wasn't intend- ed to be. They also were known to hold out slight hope for his govern- ment's offer of troops for Indo- china. A French Embassy spokesman said yesterday his which still has not received the offer reject the j preferred South Korean division for 'fear its involvement in the ugly eight-year-old war might bring on open Red Chinese intervention in Indochina, The French commissioner gen- eral for Indochina said in Bangkok today that his country still is ready to negotiate a settlement with the insurgent Vietminh. Maurice De- jean, the commissioner, charged at a 'news conference that military help from China is prolonging the conflict. Dejean said France is trying to prevent "another Korea" and he voiced confidence that the Viet- minh rebels would be repelled from the Laotian capital of Luang Pra- bang. Enemy elements, he said, are within 12V4 miles of that city. The Indochina problem caused some political repercussions in France, where Assemblyman Pierre Mendss-France charged last night in a speech at Vernon that Foreign Minister Georges Bidault is begging Mao Tze-tung, the Red Chinese leader, to stop backing the Vietminh. Negotiations Asked Mendes-France demanded that France negotiate a truce directly with Ho Chi Minh, the Vietminh chief. In Paris, French officials and those of the invaded kingdom of Laos said there is no foundation for reports that the Laotian gov- ernment had asked for the ROK troops. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Minnesota Republicans, observ- ing Lincoln's birthday Friday, came up with some major pro- nouncements and a possible hint or two on 1954 politics. Gov. Anderson, speaking at St. Cloud, closed the door on the pos- sibility he might 1 oppose Sen, Hum- ,phrey (D-Minn) 'at the polls this fall and cast ceed himself as g o v e r nor this fall. Harold E. Stas- Gov. Anderson sen, foreign oper- ations administrator, said in a to the Far East that it was "too early" for him to say whether he would re-enter state politics to make the run against Humphrey, the sena. torial race, Stassen replied: "I have no comment on that Russia Seeks To Divide West On Red China No Intention Of Concluding Korean Peace By R ELM AN MORIN SEOUL sources in Korea, who have negotiated with the Coirfmunists, said today Russia stands a good chance to achieve one of its major ing a split in Western policy to- wards Red China-if a major[ to answer to a direct power conference on the Far he would s held. The question of convening a Far Eastern conference is under dis- cussion among the Big Four for- eign ministers now meeting in Berlin. The news that Russia's V. M. Molotov will propose an assembly including representatives of Asian nations came as no sur- prise here. A top authority, who declined .0 be identified, said such a move was anticipate_d when efforts to arrange a political settlement on failed. Washington Advised "We long ago advised Washing- on that the Communists have no ntention of concluding a political greement on he said. What they, really want is a Far Eastern conference in which those quntries with ideas of neutralism be N Both India and Indonesia are onsidered to be in that category. Jurma also would lean toward the neutral" side. Observers see these three main lussian objectives in such a con- erenee. 1. To bring into the open known ifferences among the Western emocracies, especially on a joint olicy toward Red China. 2. To delay restoration of Ja- an's strength so it will be a weak oint in the pattern of power in je Far East. 3. To revive charges that the iVestern nations maintain their lleged desire to restore the "co- onial system" in the Far East. Of the three, the first is believed o hold the best chance of success or the Russians. The United States does not see ye to eye with Britain or France n policy toward Red, China. Bri- ain originally recognized the Com- munist government in Peiping. British official opinion as ex- pressed to this correspondent in London recently favors acknow- ledging "the fact that the present government is in power and is likely to stay in power. Therefore the best thing to 'do is to admit the fact and deal with it accord- Also, trade considerations inter- today other than to say that I always have made my decisions on the basis of how I best could serve the people. I feel it's too soon to make a decision." Stassen pointed out that he still could establish voting residence in Minnesota to make the contest. He presently lives in Philadelphia, where he was president of the University of Pennsylvania before entering government service. Stassen said he "understood" the state law provided that a candi- doubt on whether date must have lived in the state he would be a six months before assuming politi- candidate office. Ha pointed out that Minnesota is' his "permanent home" and that he still owns a house in South St. Paul. Gov. Anderson, discussing the senatorial race, said flatly: fall because "of the determination and eagerness of our party work- ers in every quarter and at every level to achieve our goal." Anderson is the fifth top Repub- lican to back away from the Humphrey contest. Others are Chief Justice Roger Dell, Dr. Charles Mayo' of Rochester, Rep. Walter Judd and P. Ken- neth Peterson; state representative from Minneapolis. Still viewed as receptive to a call are Atty. Gen. Burnquist and State Treasurer Val Bjornson. But neither has committed himself. Stassen and bis party made only a 20-minute stopover between planes on their way for inspection trips to Japan, Korea, Formosa, Indochina and the Philippines. Judd, in a Lincoln Day talk at Mankato, said that America's j strongest supporters are "not our It. should be clearly understood i wnhhfv thP wobbly allies in Europe but the T WUUUiJ amcD 111 UUL Lilt that I am not a candidate and dissatisfied people behind Iron have no intention of becoming a candidate." He added that he had not yet decided on whether he would run for the governorship again. Ander- son said he had great faith for a Republican victory at the polls this Curtain; we never must sell them short." He said he was opposed to any sales by the U.S. of cottonseed oil or butter to Russia because they might tend to discourage the resi- dents in Iron Curtain countries. Harold Stassen, director of the Foreign Operations Administra- tion, got'his hair cut in Seattle, Friday while waiting for a plane to Tokyo.

He was the first dressed and he remarked smilingly to newsmen: "I'm probably ahead of every- body. Give me a chance to go hunting and I'm not goig to fool around."

The young man is Roswell Bur- chard Perkins, who has been nom- inated, at the extremely tender age of 27 to be assistant secretary ol the Department of Health, Educa- tion and Welfare. The story of his rapid rise to such exalted rank is interesting. No one paid much attention to him when he arrived. He was not even assigned a in the Washington officialdom, where the most important secretaries have secretaries of their own, a secretary-less official is at the very bottom of the pecking order. But Perkins paid no attention to the pecking order. He quietly called for all the social legislation passed since Roosevelt was first sworn in, collected a large library of books on the subject, and shut himself up in a tiny office. By the time he emerged, blury-eyed, he knew just about all there was to know about social legislation. This rapidly made him the de- partment's indispensable man. Perkins hotly denies that he is in any sense the chief architect of the Eisenhower social' program. He says that he merely reported ob- jectively the pros and cons of each given piece of legislation to Mrs. Hobby and Rockefeller. However this may be, the Eisenhower soc- ial program very accurately re- flects the pragmatic conservatism (Continued on Page 16, Column 1) ALSO PS 1 KOREA halt it.

Hitlerian and Alliec occupations have stretched out 16 years. In effect, Russia has thrown up a roadblock to Austria's indepen- j dence that may stand for years. With Austria now added, Molotov's interlocking network of diplomatic snares for the West has grown appreciably in the first three weeks of a conference called to relax tensions. As he has outlined Russia's position, there now cannot be an Austrian independence treaty until both the Trieste and German problems are settled, there cannot be a German treaty, until both the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the European Defense Com- munity project are liquidated, and there cannot be peace in Asia until Red China is granted an honored place among the world's big pow- ers, a place the West insists she does not presently deserve. Despite the near hopelessness of further discussion, the ministers called for another examination of the Austrian case at 3 p.m. (9 a.m. Only on the Asian front do the Western ministers see any hope in the closing days of the confer- ence. Dulles indicated his own de- mand of progress by asking that a committee be named to map out the conference's unfinished work.

Ferguson at the last minute dis- carded a prepared speech in which he charged that "New Dealers and Fair Dealers and Left Wingers traded the lifeblood of American youth for a wartime economy (and) promoted phony prosperity." Instead, at a Republican dinner in Brooklyn, Ferguson extolled the accomplishments of the Republi- can party since 1860. Some other congressional Repub- licans were less restrained. Sen.
