Dulles Offer; George Doubts It Would Work

By Jack Bell

Associated Press | ‘The Eisenhower Admin- jistration’s plan to bring peace to Israelis and Arabs lyesterday appeared in dan- iger of quick-death.

Great Britain joined the

‘United States in. offering to

guarantee the permanent fron- tiers of Israeli and Arab states but some Arab leaders talked .of rejecting the plan outright, and a Democratic leader in the |Congress expressed doubt the iplan would ever succeed.

Sen. Walter F. George of Georgia, chairman of the Sen- ate Foreign Relations Commit- tee and chief Democratie spokesman in Congress on in- ternational affairs, said of the Administration proposal:

“I an, considering it but I haven't committed myself. I am in sympathy with the objec- tives but I doubt very much that this proposal can ever be worked out.”

George, in a telephone intet- vies. from his Vienna, Ga, home, said he feels other na- tions might give only token aid in backing up the peace plan “and the whole burden would fall on us.”

One Arab leader said angrily that Secretary of State John Foster Dulles was offeri Arabs “30 pieces of silver to Palestine to the Jews” a5 @ vote-catcher in the 1956 Presi- dential election.

Dulles said in a New York speech Friday the United States would join in interns tional action to establish and }guarantee new Israeli-Arab bor- ders, would subscribe to an in- ternational loan to compensate 900,000 Arabs displaced in the Middle East strife:and would aid in water development pro}- ects in the area.

George, who was consulted by Dulles in advance, said yes terday the situation in the Mid- die East has become “consid- erably more acute” recently.

Gevernment Vows ‘Drastic’ Action

SANTIAGO, Aug. .27 (INS) The government of Chile sent tanks to protect the Presi- dential Palace and rushed troop reinforcements into San- tiago tonight to prevent out- breaks by thousands of striking workers. Meanwhile, the gov- ernment declared it would ac- cept only an. “unconditional” return to work by nearly 55,000 strikers. A government spokes- man warned “drastic” action would be taken to prevent dis- turbances and to break a dead- lock which has paralyzed the nation’s public services.

It was the first formal gov- ernment recognition of the


gravity of the situation which has grown steadily worse over ‘the demands of public em- | ployes for wage increases, some \ranging up to 60 per cent. | The government announce- iment promised the workers ‘that salaries would be in- ‘ereased to the fullest extent | possible. | But the strike leaders were warned there would be no am- ‘nesty for “those condemned as | responsible by the courts of justice.”

The United States has worked up. a proposed package deal on German unity and European security. It covers major action proposals to be placed before Russia in the next round of East-West negotiations, if Brit- ain, France. and Germany agree.

The plan is expected to be dis- cussed privately by Assistant Secretary of State Livingston Merchant in Paris, Bonn and London next week. Merchant will fly to Paris Monday night on a consultation mission for Secretary of State Dulles.

His trip opens a period of in- tensive consultation among the western allies prior to the Oc- tober foreign ministers meeting of Dulles and his British and French colleagues together with Soviet Foreign Minister Molo- tov. They have been assigned |to work on the big problems left unsolved by last month's sum- mit conference of Big Four gov-

lernment heads at Geneva.

points represent a se part of Ameri- from among the possibie lines of action in the field of European security which were laid out at the Ge- ineva summit conference. Not included are: Soviet Premier Bulganin’s proposal for a Eu ropean-wide security pact, \which all the western powers rejected: Bulganin’s call for a provisional non-aggression itreaty between the Atlantic al- | liance and the Communist bloc iin Eastern Europe British |Prime Minister Eden's sugges- ition for a demilitarized zone ibetween the Communist and western blocs in Europe
