East-West Talks
Western Unity Deemed Necessary
For Success in Summit Meeting
AUGUSTA, Ga. (') - President Dwight D. Eisenhower came out
publicly yesterday for an East-West summit conference by the year's
But he said he has no strong feelings regarding timing and won't
attempt to dictate to Western. allies..
Eisenhower added emphatically at a news conference that in ad-
vance of any such conference he and the leaders of Western Europe
must meet to coordinate policy and position.
Stressing importance of such coordination before any summit
session with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, Eisenhower asserted
Tthat without Western unity: "It

proposed yesterday that the com-
ing East-West disarmament con-
ference put top priority on banning-
intercontinental missiles and other
new devices for carrying nuclear
Jules Moch, the French disarma-
ment expert, made the pr posal in
a speech to the 82 - nation UN
Political Committee during debate
on various approaches to the dis-
armament problem,
"We deem it necessary, in any
disarmament program, that high
priority be given to measures pro-
hibiting first the development,
then the manufacture and posses-
sion of all vehicles for nuclear
devices,". Moch declared.
Mentions Missiles
He mentioned specifically satel-'
lites, rockets, supersonic or long-
range aircraft, submarines, air-
craft carriers, and launching pads.
In outlining what he considered
the top issue for the 10-nation
conference in Geneva early next
year, Moch said:
"We suggest :calming anguish
and distrust by starting disarma-
ment efforts with elimination of
the most dreaded vehicles for the
materials of universal destruc-
tion. Such an action should be
studied first and foremost."
Asks Program
Once this priority has been ae-.
cepted, he added, this three-stage
approach might be studied at
1) A declaration of programs
and existing weapons to a inter-
national disarmament organiza-
2) Prior notice and control of
3) Prohibition,- destruction and
control of .stockpiles and muni-
tions factories. All that would re-
main would be air and naval equip-
ment sufficient to meet needs of
internal security and obligations
imposed by the UN Charter.
Moch said he was familiar with
the Soviet thesis(that control, far
from establishing confidence,
would multiply suspicions while
disarmament operations were be-
ing carried out, and ought not to
function fully until operations
were.completed. He noted the So-
viet position was entirely opposed
to .the West's.in this position;

would be just a donnybrook."
In popular usage "donnybrook";
means a .lively quarrel - even a
chaotic situation.
Grants Conference
The President, in Augusta for a
vacation of golf, told the approxi-
mately 50 reporters on hand for
his conference that he thought he
owed them a chance to fire ques-
tions at him because he had can-
celed a meeting with newsmen in
Washington Wednesday..
A good part of the news confer-
ence dealt with prospects for a
meeting of Western leaders and
an East-West summit conference.
The first question was whether
the President wants a pre-summit
meeting in the next few weeks
with French President Charles de
Gaulle, British Prime Minister
Harold Macmnillan, and West Ger-
many's Chancellor Konrad Aden-
Question Coupled
The question was coupled with
an, inquiry on whether the Presi-
dent feels an East-West Summit
should be held this year. Eisen-
hower has reportedly been urging
a December conference with'
Khrushch .
"I stated that I would Abe ready
at any time. from now on to go
to a Western summit because I
thought, preceding any meeting,
with the .Soviets, there should be'
an examination of our several po-
sitions together, so that- we could
have position papers, so called,
that we would coordinate.
"I said I was ready to go ... to
a major summit meeting,...,with
the Soviets whenever we could all
agree. that we had a chance to
study and get ourselves all pre-
pared. In other words, I was
thinking that we could do this by
the end of the year.
'Not a Proposal'
"But it was not a proposal, it
was a statement of my position.
That still remains my position."
But the President added that
the longer a Western meeting is
postponed, the longer a summit
conference will have to be de-
The Soviet Ambassador to
France said in Paris yesterday
that Eisenhower had proposed a
summit meeting by the end of the
year -- and that Russia's govern-
ment agrees. to that timetable.
The Frenc h cabinet said
Wednesday that France is for an
East-West meeting in principle,
but it should not be held until
next spring.

TOKYO (P)-Red China's recent
tenth anniyersary celebration un-
derscored a reality of international
life - the tremendous worldwide
scope 'of Communist organization.
From 61 nations on six con-
tinents, the dlegates poured into
Peiping. Each represented a party
in his homeland dedicated to the
cause of the Communist nations
against the non-Communist coun-

port or railroad station. Each was
Each had his say about his own
corner of the world and the pro-
gress of Communism there.
Nearly every spokesman for all
these delegations said the same
things, Peiping radio reported:

in power and prosperity, the farm
communes are a brillant success

Tung, did not see eye-to-eye with
Soviet Premier Nikita Khrush-

world tensions. This may be only
window dressing to fool the non-
Communist world. What they said
in private remains secret.
But the thousands of words
voiced by the delegates and broad-
cast by radio Peiping made clear
the tremendous, monolithic struc-
ture of thought of worldwide Com-
Those words show a unity of
purpose. They disclose a tightly
organized network, embued with
a missionary-like fervor, spread
throughout the world.
Peiping's rapturous descriptions
seemed to point up one of the great
facets of Communist appeal-the
psychology of belonging' to a giant
team, of being repeatedly reas-
sured that what you have been
taught is right, and of dedication
to a faraway goal.
Perhaps it is the same psychol-
ogy that grips a college cheering
section when it exhorts its team
in unison.
The monolithic unity was on
display through all phases of the
celebration. The top leaders spoke
first at every important occasion.
The lesser leaders followed in
strict descending tiers of impor-

In discussing the 12-year-old
Taft-Hartley Law with newsmen,
Eisenhower said he doesn't think
it has a very brilliant history.
"I do not believe it is pecessarily
good or adequate legislation," he
said, adding: "But on the other
hand, I am not so sure that addi--
tional legislation is going to do
exactly what we 'want."
The President voiced opposition
to any punitive laws, or laws of'
compulsion. He said they only tend'
to worsen a situation.
"I don't think Taft-Hartley is
necessarily any cure for this
thing," Eisenhower said. "I be-
lieve that self-discipline ... is the
only thing that ever will do- it."
