He declared it was the admin istration’s aim and purpose “to develop policies which will keep us from having to send Ameri can boys to light in Indo-China or anywhere else if we possibly can.” A policy of strength and of united action “has the best chance to accomplish that pur pose,” he said. If Indo-China falls to the Communists, Mr. Nixon warned, “the balance of power in the world may have shifted to the Communist side sufficiently that the men in the Kremlin and Pekin may think that now the time has come when they can begin a world war and have a chance to win.” Preventative Tips. He outlined the preventative measures taken by the United States: 1. Secretary of State Dulles warned the Chinese Communists that if they move across the border into Indo-China “they would run the risk of retaliation of the United States against China itself. Result, the possi bilities that overt Intervention by the Chinese Communists in Indo-China have been reduced very, very definitely.” 2. The Government Is sup porting the forces of the French and of the associated States of Indo-China. “We are spending over a billion dollars in Indo- China this year and we are spending it because we are fighting a war which involved their interests but also our in terests as well. 3. Mr. Dulles Is attempting to develop united action among our allies to resist the Commu nists. “We will go to Geneva with our allies standing together working for. If we can get it, an honorable peace settlement. But also we shall go there standing together with them in opposi tion of any settlement which would mean surrender of Indo- China to the Communists.” Seek to Avoid War. “Now that is the policy,” Mr. Nixon said. "And there are i some who may say that sounds 1 like a tough policy. There are some who might even say that sounds like a war policy. But it is our opinion that in this situ ation that this is the only kind of a policy which has a chance to hold Indo-China without a war in which we are* involved.” Mr. Nixon said the war in Indo-China “is like the war in China which at first glance ap peared to be a civil war. but actually was a war of aggres sion by the international Cdfn munist conspiracy.” He skid the fall of Indo-China would jeopardize the whole of Southeast Asia with 85 oer cent of the world’s rubber, 60 per cent of its tin and the rice, bowl of the continent. The Republican administra tion. he said, adopted a “new look” military plan which would rely primarily on “massive, mobile, retaliatory pawer.” He insisted its purpose was not “to involve the United States in an atomic catastrophe which would be national suicide for us and for our potential enemy—the purpose is to keep an atomic war or any other kind of war from developing.” Missing Girl, 3, Found Near Grandparents' Home Oy tha Associated Press FRANKLIN, W.
