Peace Action
Challenges Reds
To Change Policy
WASHINGTON - P) - Secre-
tary of State Dulles declared yes-
terday strong foreign policies of

had forced Russia to go on a
"peace defensive" which may bring
a Communist agreement to an ar-
mistice in Korea.
He challenged the Kremlin to
meet President Eisenhower's "true
peace offensive" with peaceful ac-
tion and to abandon its conspira-
cy to overthrow "every genuinely
free government in the world."
