Transcript S^^r^B 6 ai On I l>r, Also, the large, well-trained, and splendidly-equipped forces of Communist China, 400 million strong, remain intact and under the direction and control of the Kremlin. Most of the foregoing look at NATO has dealt with its present weaknesses and strengths in an effort to evaluate its effectiveness in the past and its potential usefulness for the future. Now, what is the answer to the current controversy: Should NATO expand or expire? The proposal has been made to the North Atlantic Council by Secretary Dulles, backed by President Eisenhower and the U. S. Department of State, that NATO — without changing its military role — expand its activities to cover more comprehensively the field of economies and politics. This is based on the premise that basically the Atlantic community has so much in common that it should be able to do more in common. For the first few years of NATO the unifying motive admittedly was fear. Also, the foreign ministers believe that the one thing above all others that contributed to failure in the past has been disunity among our own allies. Now, in the words of Canada's I.ester B. Pearson. "NATO cannot endure permanently on fear alone." How. then, to continue the program so that the member nations, without the incentive of fear, will not relax their necessary military vigil? Dulles' answer to this is to broaden NATO's interests and activities so as better to serve the nations in an advis- ory capacity. Such expanded activities would enable the member nations to be better informed and to work together cooperatively for changes that hold a possibility of good. Expansion would allow NATO to be for something rather than merely against something." This new enlargement program could be carried out within the framework of Article II of the original treaty, which reads: Ihe Parties will contribute toward the further development of peaceful and friendly international relations by strengthening their free institutions, by bringing about a better understanding of the principles upon which these institutions are founded, and hy promoting conditions of stability and well-being. They will seek- to eliminate conflict in their international ee anie policies and will encourage economic collaboration between any or all of them. At the last meeting of the North At- "Dulles, "The Time Has Come to Expand \ no; " op. ah., p. 106. Page 8 PRESIDENT'S LETTER TO SENATOR GEORGE (WHITE HOUSE PRESS RELEASE DATED MAY 9) Dear Walter: I know that your present term in the Senate expires this year. In view of that fact, I should like to say two things to you: It has been my great hope that you would continue on in the Senate where you have been able to make so great a contribution to peace through helping to develop and sustain a non-partisan foreign policy. Your contribution in that respect has been incalculable and I believe it was the overwhelming desire of the American people that you would have found yourself able to continue in the Senate. I can, however, realize that you may desire to concentrate more exclusively on the great problems of war and peace which confront our nation, free of other responsibilities which inevitably go with the Senatorship. If that is your preference, I earnestly hope that you will be willing to act for this nation with reference to the development of the North Atlantic Community so that it will in greater unity and greater effectiveness serve the cause of international peace and the preservation of those ideals of human liberty and freedom which are so deeply rooted in the Community. As you know, at the latest meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Council, it was decided to explore ways and means by which the North Atlantic Community, through the NATO Council or otherwise, might more fully realize its potential for peace and human welfare. I regard the contribution which the United States can make to this project as of the utmost importance and feel that it may indeed play a decisive role in the achievement of a just and durable peace and the preservation of the great values inherent in our Western civilization. It would be a great service to the nation and, indeed in a broader sense, to the whole world if you would be willing, for as long as I may hold my present office, to act as my Personal Representative and Special Ambassador in the development of this new evolutionary step within the North Atlantic Community. In case you do feel impelled to lay down the responsibilities of your present office, I can think of no way where you could better serve our nation and more fittingly crown your great career as a statesman. I may say that Foster Dulles has asked me to express his warm concurrence in what I say and that he greatly hopes that you will favorably consider this important mission. With warm personal regard, Sincerely, DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER lantic Council in Paris, when Dulles presented this plan, three foreign ministers were selected to explore the possibilities and to present suggestions and recommendations for implementation: Lester B. Pearson of Canada, Gaetano Martino of Italy, and Halvard M. Lange of Norway. Thev- are presently visiting the capitals of the member nations, concentrating on searching for ideas that could defeat com munism in its drive to win over ' uncommitted nations of Asia, AH'1 and the Middle East.
