Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles meets with French Pre-
mier Joseph Laniel today as he
continues an attempt to garner
both French and British partici-
pation in his 10-nation 'united
front' against Communist aggres-
sion in Southeast Asia.
Yesterday Dulles conferred with
English Prime Minister Sir Win-
ston Churchill and Foreign Sec-
retary Anthony Eden.
WITH FULL presidential back-
ing Dulles made public his 'unit-
ed front' proposal last week. It
calls for a joint statement among
the interested nations warning
Red China against entering the
Indo-China fighting and an agree-
ment to take such collective steps
necessary to keep Indo-China
from falling to Communist forces.
Although no official govern-
ment announcement has been
made, Washington political ex-
perts are almost certain that
the collective steps include dir-
ect military aid to the anti-
Thailand has already accepted
an invitation to join the agree-
ment and it is believed Dulles
hopes to add New Zealand, Aus-
tralia, the Phillipines, the Asso-
ciated States of Viet Nam, Laos,
and Cambodia as well as France
This firm administration policy
is apparently a result of its fear
that France, tired and economi-
cally famished from seven years
of fighting the Communists, is on
the verge of giving up the battle
THE FRENCH cabinet report-
edly is pressing for a treaty with
the Communists to end hostilities.
Even if the war is continued it is
becoming increasingly obvious
that the French military machine
is slipping and that more aid is
needed if its Southeast Asia col-
munist domination, agree in substance with Dulles' 111 Al t

Since both Eisenhower and
Dulles feel that Communist an-
nexation of Indo-China will lead
to further losses in the Far East,
they believe the country must be
saved at any cost.
Eisenhower said in a news con-
ference last Wednesday, that the
fall of Indo-China would pave the
way for Red domination of all
Southeast Asia including Thai-
land, Malaya, Burma and India.
Not only would the Free World
lose access to this rich source of
raw materials but Australia and
New Zealand would be placed in

DULLES, however, is expected
to have difficulty on his current
trip, convincing French and Eng-
lish leaders of an immediate an-
nouncement of .joining his 'unit-

fer to withhold any decision
until after the Geneva Confer-

They want no unnecessary ob-
stacles at Geneva to a free and
open discussion of the world situa-

the settlement of some world
Meanwhile, the proposal has
been causing a considerable con-
troversy in the U.S. Senate. Ma-
jority leader William F. Know-
land of California has suggested
holding up foreign aid appropria-
tions toour leading allies if they
refuse to allign themselves with
John Strachey, former British
war secretary, summed up British
opinion on this course of action
with a curt, "If that is so then
the sooner it is cut off the better.
Britain is not for sale."
