No Peace Pact is Expected

By Small Crowd
LONDON (UP) London news
papers took a long hard look at
Billy Graham's east sire visit Sun
day and agreed that something
went wrong. Only 5000 persons
turned up and 100,000 had been
Some papers blamed the weath

ers said the American evangelist
was trying too hard to sell him
self. Only one, the News Chronicle,
was optimistic about the meeting.
It said the Sunday meeting and
the Saturday opening meeting at
Wembley Stadium constituted a
"weekend of fresh triumphs for
the preacher."
Graham entered the troubled
dockland area of London yester
day behind a Salvation Army band
which played "Onward Christian
Soldiers" and picked up hundreds
of persons in its wake.
The American evangelist had
opened his second "Greater Lon
don Crusade" before at least
70,000 persons Saturday night. Sun
day he moved into the grim and
grubby east end at Dagenham, a
factory suburb on the Thames
River where Ford Motor Co.,
builds its English cars.
Graham's services had the set
ting of a circus until police liter
ally pushed dozens of peddlers out
of the park. They were shouting
out their wares of "peanuts and
Billy Graham photo buttons" and
"orange pop" and "Billy Gra
ham's life story" until police inter
vened. "We've all been hearing about
the new polio vaccine in the
United States," Graham told his
audience of dockers and auto
"They say it's 90 per cent ef

These precautions against an

anxiety with which Mr. Eisenhow

would not be undertaken in its
present form if his advice we"e
being followed. The Eisenhowet
administration is offering solid, all
out cooperation in the effort to
turn the trend of world affairs to
ward peace and mutual under
standing, despite a preference for
a different and more cautious ap
proach. But the administration makes no
claim of being parent of the proj
ect now developing, whereas the
Russians and both major political
parties in Britain are ready to
acknowledge applause and take a
bow. . 1
The President's refusal to be put
on a spot where he would sef k
basic Cold War decisions in agree
ment with Soviet Union Premier
Nikolai A. Bulganin is attributed
here to Soviet Russian welshing
on promises made at earlier con
ferences, notably at Yalta.
Yalta's Bruising Experience
Some observers suggest, how
ever, that more than the bruising
experience of Yalta has made Mr.
Eiienhower cautious now. The
Kremlin has talked peace and
peaceful co-existence , with the
West. But there is scant evidence
that the American public has been
On the contrary, the belief pre
vails widely in the United States
that the basic objective of the
Communist Party, which controls
the Russian government and op
erates international Communism,
remains unchanged. It was origi
nally, and is widely believed now
to be,, the destruction of what me
Communists call capitalist Imperi
alism. By capitalist imperialism
the Communists mean any West-;
em democracy or a representative
republic, such as the United States.
Mr. Eisenhower's assumption,
until convinced otherwise, presum
ably is that any Soviet Russian
agreement to join in a Big Four
conference will toe related to the
world revolution which has been
the basic objective. He is willing,
however, to give Bulganin the op
portunity of convincing him.
The President does not want the
American public to expect from
his meeting with Bulganin, Prime
Minister Sir Anthony Eden and
Premier Edgar Faure the miracles
which great numbers of British
and French men and women ap
parently do believe may come to
pass. He is hoping for the best,
but promising nothing for sure.
Bee Population
Faces Starvation
New York state's bee population
is in danger of starvation this
Entomologists at Cornell Univer
sity say the threat of starvation
is a result of a poor honey crop
caused by storms and extended pe
riods of wet weather in January
and early in February.
The experts suggest that be
keepers set up two or three pounds
of dry granulaed sugar on the
inner hive cover. This is called

Soviet Troops
Prepare to Quit
Austrian Ground
VIENNA, Austria (UP) Soviet
troops prepared Monday to with
draw from Austria within 90 days
under an Austrian state treaty that
rolls back the Iron Curtain for the
first time and promises the long
awaited break in the .Cold War.
A high American official said the
Soviet withdrawal from Austria
marked a trend "which is going to
have a profound effect on the rest
of Europe" and predicted it was a
"general modration" of Soviet poli
cy toward the slave nations under
its thumb.
The four foreign ministers who
signed the state treaty giving Aus
tria its first freedom in 17 years
were dispersing to their various
capitals to plan "within week or
ten days" a meeting of the Big
Four heads of state.
But Western diplomatic joy at
winning the treaty after ten years
of haggling with the Soviet Union
was tempered by Foreign Minister

A high Western source said the
time and place of the meeting of
the Big Four leaders would be set
during the next week or ten days
through diplomatic channels. Vien
na and Berlin were reported defi
nitely out as far as the Americans
were concerned, with some city In
Switzerland, or Stockholm, favored.
Austrians were still celebrating
their new-found freedom as they
began their first full day of Inde
pendence. Many stayed up all night
in a celebration that began when
bells throughout Austria pealed the
news of the signing shortly before
noon Sunday.
