This exchange, including an un-
expected 'message from Premier
Nikolai Bulganin to President
Dwight D. Eisenhower, showed
that the Kremlin and the White
House are talking about two dif-
ferent kinds of summit meetings.
It %lso confirmed earlier impres-
sions here and in Western Europe
that barring major concessions on
one side or the other, the only
major issues with which a summit
meeting can grapple directly are
in the field of disarmament.
Secretary of State John Foster
Illes accused the Soviets of sim-
ply wanting a "spectacle" confer-
ence which would deceive the
world into thinking that peace has
come at last.
What Dulles did not spell out is
that United States and allied lead-1
era see a deception as a dangerous
weapon in the hands of the Rus-
si ns. They fear it would weaken
t e resolve of the free nations to
preserve their system of anti-
Communist alliances and their
resistance to Communist pressure.
Significance Goes Further
But the significance of the spec-
tacle, high officials said yesterday,
would go much farther. The dra-
matic meeting which the Soviets
seek could be converted by them
into a symbol of Western accept-
ance. of the vast empire which
Soviet communism has formed
during and since World War II.
It is because of such vital con-
siderations as these, officials de-
Glared, that President Eisenhower
and Dulles have rejected Russia's
ternis for a summit conference.
They have insisted on the kind of,
conference-and preliminary pre-
parations - which they think
would protect the interests of the

and prove before a selected six-
member panel of ministers Sen.
Goldwater's recent charges Reu-
ther and the UAW "are a more
dangerous menace than the Sput-
niks or anything Russia might do."

If the ministers, three to be se-

conscience as to whether you would

There was no immediate com-
ment from Sen. Goldwater.
In the Senate's investigation of
the UAW's four-year-old strike
against the Kohler Co., a Wiscon-
sin plumbingware manufacturer,
Reuther said that hearings in the
last 10 days "have been a, sad
spectacle of recrimination by both
the company and the union, into
which certain members of the
committee have become involved.
"I believe that ,a continuation of
this emotionally explosive atmos-
phere in these hearings can only
create further bitterness between
the Kohler Co. and its striking
employes and make a sane, sen-
sible and just settlement of this
dispute more difficult....
"I appeal to you ... to be will-
ing to discuss the Kohler situation
on its merits and on the facts, un-
related to the political differences
between us, no matter how deeply
you or we may feel about those
differences. I sincerely urge sanity

"Rather than step up the volume
and the velocity of the name-call-'

six-minister panel as a "sensible,

true or false.

Informed sources said former
Vice-president Mohammed Hatta's
insistence on a truce before ne-
gotiating a settlement with the
rebels brought the sudden post-
ponement ofa meeting with Presi-
dent Sukarno Friday.'
Hatta wants to link a truce with
the formation of a presidential
cabinet. Sukarno wants to take up
these problems separately.
Hatta, a former political ally of
Sukarno, would be a member of
the new cabinet. Many quarter
feel his inclusion in the govern-
ment would bring the rebels
around to making peace.
Hatta quit the government more
than a year ago after Sukarno had
set up his program for "guided
democracy." Hatta claimed the
Communists would have too much
influence on the government.
