Red Danger 'Real'
In Mid-East--Dulles
Secretary Urges Senate Backing
Of Ike's Standby Military Authority
WASHINGTON (AP)-Secretary of State John Foster Dulles said
- yesterday "evidence is accumulating" that the Communists are try-
ing to take over the Middle East.
Appealing for Senate backing of President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
request of standby military authority to cope with possible Red aggres-
sion, he said the Soviet threat to Middle East security is dangerous
and real.
"I'd say that this is the most serious threat we have faced over
a period of 10 years," Dulles told the Senate Foreign Relations and
Armed Services Committees in joint session.

New Cabinet Sworn In;
Tackles Top Problems
LONDON (IP)-Prime Minister Harold Macmillan's new govern-
ment plunged yesterday into talks ranging from the Suez Canal
crisis to'setting up a free trade market in Western Europe.
The new Cabinet was sworn in before Queen Elizabeth II at
Buckingham Palace.
Then Macmillan and Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd hustled
off to confer with Foreign Minister Charles Malik of Lebanon, who
had come from Cairo talks with President Abdul Nasser of Egypt.
First Major Task
One of the first major tasks of Macmillan's government is to
settle the Suez dispute and get ships moving through the' canal once

it is cleared of wreckage.
"The situation is very difficult,"
Malik told reporters before leav-'
ing to attend United Nations ses-
sions in New York. "It is certainly
not hopeless at all because the
business of the world must go on
and therefore everybody must help
smooth over whatever difficulties
Malik said he filled in Macmil-
lan and Lloyd on his "instructive
and exceedingly extensive talks"
with Nasser. He added the Britons
gave him no hint of their reaction.
Free Trade Plan
From Suez and the Middle East,
Lloyd turned to the projected West
European free trade plan. He dined
with Foreign Miflister Paul-Henri
Spaak of Belgium, who arrived
to discuss the plan. Spaak is the
new secretary general of the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization.
Detailed discussion opens today

In his former office as presi-
dent of the Board of Trade,
Thorneycroft pushed the idea of a
common European market area.
The talks will center on ways
of broadening the plan for a com-
mon market so that Britain and
other West European countries
can take part.
France, Italy, Belgium, Ger-
many, Holland and Luxembourg
are well advanced on the plan.

Big Drought
TUCSON, Ariz. (A) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday
surveyedrecord drought damage
in a wide area of the parched
Southwest and he promised hard-
hit farmers and ranchers "every-
body will do his best" to help
Making a 4,500-mile tour taking
him into six sun-scorched states,
the President's first round of air
and ground travel took. him to
wind-swept regions in Texas, Ok-
lahoma, and New Mexico.
Thenhe flew on to Davis-Mon-
than Air Force Base near Tucson
for the night and for a parley on
Arizona's drought problem in the
morning before visiting Colorado
and Kansas.
Talking as one farmer to others,
President Eisenhower told those
faced with one of the worst
droughts in years:
"I'm delighted to see you keep-
ing Your chins up." Out of bed at
6 a.m., the President started his
tour of badly damaged drought
areas at San Angelo, Tex., then
flew on to Woodward, Okla., and
Clovis, N.M., where he tramped
over more parched country.
At all stops on the ground in-
spection trips and at airport con-
ference with state and local offi-
cials President Eisenhower got
plenty of advice on how the fed-
eral government could provide ad-
ditional relief.
But for the time being he with-
>.eld comment on both emergency
and long-range relief proposals
advanced. He may set forth his
own views when he concludes his
two-day tour late today at a con-
ference in Wichita, Kan.

Offers New
Control Plan
To Limit Stockpiles,
Cut Armed Forces,
Ban Nuclear Tests
The United States yesterday pro-
posed international controls of
outer space missiles as -part of a
new five-point disarmament plan
approved and blessed by President
Dwight D. Eisenhower.
U.S. Chief Delegate Henry Cab-
ot Lodge Jr. in a speech to the
United Nations Assembly's Politi-
cal Committee also called for con-
trols on the stockpiling of fission-
able materials, a limit and event-
ual ban on nuclear test explosions,
a reduction of armed forces of the
powers and a watchdog system to
guard 'against surprise attacks.
All of this would be done under
strict and effective internation'al
control and supervision.
Vassily V. Kuznetsov, Soviet
deputy foreign minister, said the
United States plan would be stud-
ied. However, he threw the dis-
armament debate back to the cold
war stage at its hottest by linking
a Moscow plan to a slashing at-
tack on the "Eisenhower doctrine."
Finally, he demanded a special UN
Assembly on disarmament alone,
Kuznetsov accused the Ameri-
cans of colonialism' of trying to
take the place in the Middle East
held by Britain and France and
of interfering in affairs of Arab
After Kuznetsov finished, Lodge,
obviously angered, said the charges
against the Americans came from
"the government which has per-
petrated the blood bath in Hun-
gary . . ." He said the proposals
were made in good faith.
