WASHINGTON (P-The United States will be deeply committed
from now on to play a hand in the dangerous and violent game of
Middle Eastern power politics.
This commitment is a result of the decision by President Dwight
Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles this week to
throw American power and prestige behind King Hussein in his fight
to prevent extremists, spurred by anti-Western and Communist agita-
tors, from taking over Jordan.
Until the United States cast its influence and the threat of its
military power into the struggle on Hussein's side, it had some freedom
of choice about whether to take part in any particular Middle Eastern
crisis. From here on, however, the prestige of the United States will
be involved in any new conflict within the area and its stature and
effectiveness seem certain to be judged by the outcome.
By Necessity or Choice-A Power
Essentially this is a way of saying that whether by necessity or by
choice the United States has become a Middle Eastern power, taking
over the position once held by Britain and France.
Three other results of the Jordanian crisis appeared either definite
or probable:
1) The Arab bloc, which has always been united in opposition to

Israel and has shown considerable surface solidarity on the issue of'
Egypt's operation of the Suez Canal, is split wide open over the
question of Jordan's future. Saudi Arabia and Iraq are supporting
Hussein against Egypt and Syria.
2) The way the affair has gone to date, Iraq and Saudi Arabia
are winning. This means, in particular, an increase in the stature of
Arabian King Saud, who is counted as a strong anti-Communist and
a friend of the United States. The stature of King Faisel in Iraq has
also been enhanced.
Nasser's Drive Checked
3) The momentum of Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser's
drive to make himself leader of the Moslem world has been checked-at
least momentarily. His failure to reduce Jordan to the level of a
satellite or have his ally Syria take over large portions of it offsets
the clear victory he has so far gained over the Western Powers in
laying down his own terms for use of the canal, and make themostick.
Authorities here cautioned that the Jordanian situation is by no
means resolved yet. They are greatly encouraged by evidence that
King Hussein, in spite of the fact he is only 21 years old, is proving
a strong figure. As one State Department official expressed it, "he has
shown muscle." Yet the forces against Hussein are strong and must be
counted as determined.
U.S. policy toward the King began to develop sharply at Sec.

Dulles' news conference last Tuesday when he said "we have great
confidence in and regard for King Hussein, because we really believe
that he is striving to maintain the independence of his country . ."
Late Wednesday President Eisenhower and Dulles, in a joint
statement issued at Augusta, asserted in relation to Jordan the
declared U.S. policy-which Congress approved in March-of sup-
porting the independence and integrity of Middle Eastern countries.
On Thursday the State Department in a supplemental but signifi-
cant comment declared Jordan was threatened by "international com-
munism." The use of this term, it was learned Saturday showed the
extent to which the 'United States was backing Hussein.
Did Not Detect Communist Activity
For in issuing the Dulles-Eisenhower statement Wednesday presi-
dential press secretary Hagerty had told questioning reporters he
could not in fairness say that the President and secretary had detected
signs of Communist activity in the Jordan troubles.
Yet less than 24 hours afterward the State Department put major
or even total blame on international communism. What had happened
in the meantime was that Hussein had put the responsibility on the
Communists in a statement at Amman and the United States had
decided to back him-even though this meant meeting one more of
the qualifications which would have to be fulfilled if American forces
were to become involved in a Jordanian war.

Promises to create a fight on the floor of the House to raise the

in Lansing yesterday.
Just after members of the Republican State Central Committee
passed a resolution backing their "hold the line" policies on state
spending, Rep. George Sallade, of Ann Arbor, told them he would
battle, if necessary, to obtain more state aid for schools.

Beck Probe

WASHINGTON (.) - S e n a t e
rackets probers said yesterday four
key witnesses in their investiga-
tion of Teamsters Union President
Dave Beck -including Beck's son
- "have disappeared."
Chairman John McClellan (D-
Ark) of the Special Senate Com-
mittee conducting the inquiry said
the four are needed for questioning
in a further investigation of Beck's
handling of union funds.
The Teamster chief recently in-
voked the Fifth Amendment, con-
tending it might incriminate him
if he told the committee whether
he used hundreds of thousands of
dollars of union funds to pay his
personal bills and finance a lavish
scale of living.
The committee now seeks to ex-
plore business dealings of Beck
and members of his family with

Ike Expected
To Campaign
For Program
WASHINGTON (P)-Close asso-
ciates expect President Eisenhower
to take personal command next
week of a new drive to get his
bogged-down legislative program
through Congress.
Eisenhower will be back in the
White House early next week after
a work and play vacation at Au-
gusta, Ga. His first order of busi-
ness apparently will be to call leg-
islative leaders of both parties to-
gether for a conference on his
foreign aid program.
Drive Opens
Administration officials look to
this conference as the opening of
a drive by the President to get
early action in Congress on school
construction aid, a refugee bill,
civil rights and other legislation.
Eisenhower has been told by
some of his advisors that although
he has been plugging for his pro-
gram in his weekly news confer-
ences, some additional efforts may
be necessary to build up popular
support for his proposals.
In this connection there has
been talk the President might
make some national television ap-
peals for such support.
Ike Called Determined
Eisenhower was represented in
top administration circles as being
determined to stick firmly by his
recommendations for $4,400,000,-
000 foreign aid program.
That program is the chief target
of congressional efforts to cut the
President's $71,800,000,000 spend-
ing budget. Sen. Knowland, Cali-
fornia, Republican leader, has pre-
dicted a billion dollar cut in for-i
eign aid.
