Noyes Foreign Correspondent of Tho Star few months ago, when his’friends suggested that he might become Premier Men des-France’s Foreign minister, Edgar Faure told them bluntly what he thought of the idea. “Anyone can be a foreign min ister.” he declared. “Very few can be finance minister. ITI stay where I am.” Today, after 18 months as France's economic chief, Mr. Faure is busily installing himself In his new offices on the Quai d’Orsay, the French State De partment. The switch shows at least one thing about France’s third post-war foreign minister— the ability to change his mind. Na Apologies. The change probably has not been painless. A man not given to under-rating his own abilities, Mr. Faure has no reason to apologize for his performance as finance minister. In his 18 months, salaries have been in creased 8 per cent while living costs have remained stable. Na tional revenue, industrial pro duction, gold and dollar reserve are all at a healthy new high franc has been stabilized, trade barriers lowered and France’s chronic credit deficit with the European Payments Union cured. While Mr. Mendes- France has been completely oc cupied with foreign affairs Mr Faure has somehow managed to pump a good deal of life into the tottering French economy. The trouble is that now Mr. Mendes-Frgnce himself plans to take over the Job of developing his own economic program and too many top-flight economists can be a nuisance. Mr. Faure has made no secret of his disapproval of a number of things that Mr. Mendes-France plans to do. He may not be happy about what must be rated as a polite kick upstairs to leave room for a more pliable finance minister. But, as a politician, he appears to have decided that even a second choice job Is better than ob scurity. Against this background, there is less than wild enthusiasm in diplomatic circles here over Mr. Faure’s appointment. Those who are more concerned about French foreign policy than they are about economic reform are frankly wondering what may "be in store. They are also wondering ill for all his highly polished, and even brilliant exterior. Mr. Faure represents a promising successor to Messrs. Bidault and Schuman as head of the French Foreign Office. There is not much to go on. Mr. Faure’s sallies into the field of foreign affairs in the course of his public service have been in the nature of a student play ing hookey from more serious work. Even during the 40 days when he led the French govern ment in 1952, there was little solid evidence to indicate where or how firmly the premier stood on a number of important ques tions facing the Free World. The only thing certain is that his opinions on these questions will matter a good deal more now than they have in the past. There also is an idea that his performance won’t be dull. The new Foreign minister is con sidered a man who dislikes the conventional approach, a man long on ambition, and short on discretion, very anxious to Justify his faith in himself and his own promising start in public life. At 46. there Is still something of the child prodigy about Edgar Faure. From the beginning he has shown a tendency to shine in an uncongenial environment. Born to an army life (his father, a hussar surgeon, is remembered for his full beard and red trou sers) his early education was haphazard. In 1914, thanks to the disorganization of the school system, he was entered as the only boy in a girl’s boarding school at La Bruyere. As com pensation, his mother allowed him to grow blond curls. Today. Mr. Faure claims to be the only government minister who is*a member of an alumnae associa tion. From there he advanced rap idly through an arid exacting course of studies including Sandal and international lAw d the history of fiscal legis lation, graduating finally with the degree of “docteur” at the age of 19. along with a classmate named Pierre Mendes - France. While still a minor, legally un able to manage his own legal affairs, he defended those of others as an attorney attached to the Court of Appeals in Paris. During off hours, to keep his hand in, he studied at the school of oriental languages, perfecting himself in reading and writing Russian. Honeymooned in Russia. At the age of 23. Mr. Faure married Lucie Meyer who today directs a highbrow and moder ately leftist political review called “La Nef.” For their hon eymoon, they Joined a group of young lawyers on a tour ot Rus sia. As Mr. Faure recalls the trip today, it was only a partial success. A good deal of time was taken up caring for Mr. Mendes- I GLASSES (EXAMINATION. hot 6 & h HH.IBM Opoo Doily ; 932 f STREET N.W.

The war caught him in south ern France, where in due course, he ran into trouble with the au thorities. On one occasion, Mr. Faure escaped arrest by the Ges tapo by absent-mindedly missing the train that the Germans were watching In 1942 he escaped with his family to North Africa and held a number of minor; posts in the provisional govern- j ment. To pass the time, he took up! a new hobby—writing detective j stories. His two published works j have been described as unusual,! complete with bogus crimes and corpses who died accidentally. Mr. Faure explains: ‘‘As a lawyer, I ran into many more fakers than murderers.” After the war, he served briefly under Mr. Mendes-France in Gen. de Gaulle’s ministry of economic affairs before being named as a member of the French delegation to the trial of German war criminals at Nuremburg. His formal entry in to politics was a fiasco. Running for the Assembly in Paris, he was soundly trounced twice be fore winning his seat as radical socialist deputy from the Jura district in 1946. Since then, he has so carefully cultivated his private political cabbage-patch as to make his re-election auto matic. In the Assembly, Mr. Faure’s financial talents were quickly recognized. Starting in 1949, he held high economic posts in vir tually every French government until President Auriol called on him to form his own cabinet. In January, 1952, Edgar Faure be came at 43 France’s eighth post war premier—the youngest since 1883. When his government fell 40 days later on the 29th of February, he observed wryly that at least the occasion would be celebrated only once every four years. Up until now, Mr. Faure has made only one major statement on French foreign policy in 1953 before the Radical Socialist Congress in Marseilles. On that occasion, he announced himself in favor of the North Atlantic coalition, a negotiated settlement in Indo-China, and with a num ber of important reservations— the EDC. His closing remarks, however, bear more closely on the problems of today and perhaps provide a hint of what is to be Humidifier SALE! Regularly 534.95 ’’t’hT $10 95 WEEK!

WiBSTIB MEIsBDSEQQGBEIP^SSNI 627 f STREET H.W. i expected from French foreign policy in the immediate future: “Can we have co-exl6tenae,” he asked, “between the two blocs, not Just material coexistence— without which we wouldn't be here—but a genuinely peaceful co-existence without a cold war? “From the western point of view, I believe that this co-ex istence is considered possible and even desirable. It is one element of common policy that we should agree on. “We must negotiate. . . Mr. Faure continued. “Even if we were sure that all negotiations would fail, we should still nego tiate. They say that for the Rus sians negotiation is propaganda. But that is exactly why we must not neglect it. Propaganda, for the Russians, is in the offer to negotiate, not in the refusal to do so. We must turn their weap on against them and show their responsibility for a failure which now they glibly pin on us. . . . “Today, on this problem of negotiations, we find ourselves in a paradoxical position: We allow the cause of peace to be con stantly Invoked by these who menace it; we allow the cause of peace to be mobilized in the service of the instigators of war.” In the days to con», Edgar Faure, as French foreign min ister, will have an unusual op portunity to test the possibility of an understanding with the Russians. It is perhaps the most definite plank in his foreign pol icy platform as he moves into his new job.

JACKSONVILLE. Ha.. Jan. 29. —Wives and mothers of United States airmen held in Commu nist China, some of them choked with tears, tonight thanked President Eisenhower for efforts to get their loved ones out of Red prisons. It was the first time that rela tives—l 3in all—had been able to get together to share common emotions and experiences. The gathering was made possible by a group of businessmen here. The women agreed with the State Department that it would be impractical—even foolish— to try to accept the Reds’ offer to permit them to visit their Jailed relatives, and Herman Tal madge. former Governor of Geor gia who was principal speaker at a dinner for the group, agreed with them. * In his prepared speech Mr. Talmadge had criticized United States foreign policy as waver ing. but switched from that to say. ‘Tm glad to see that our policy in recent days has changed from one of ‘Keep 'em guessing’ to one that says ‘You may go so far and no farther.’ ” The statement brought ap plause from the 100 persons in the hotel dining room. Each of the airmen’s relatives spoke for less than a minute to express gratitude for being able to meet one another. Mr. Talmadge did riot follow his prepared text exactly but did in substance. He said: “The point has been reached when the President and members of Congress should declare as the policy of this Nation the guarantee of the full protection of our armed might to American civilians and servicemen when ever they may go or be sent to serve in the world. “We should spell out exactly what areas we will defend and make it perfectly clear that to: violate this is to Invite til-out Earlier the relatives is sued a statement saying they felt the recent State Department ruling “not to issue passports at this time is in the best interests of ail the members of this group, our loved ones in China and the Nation as a whole." The Reds had said relatives could visit the prisoners, but Washington ruled the tense Formosan situation prohibited it. Many of those here branded the Red offer as purely for prop aganda purposes, but no group statement was made on this. Neither was any concerted action taken on a possible visit to China if the passport ban is lifted. ) Mau Mau Chief Seized NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan. 29 (JP) —Police made a surprise raid on the servant's quarters of j,n Asian girls’ school in Nairobi tonight and captured “General” Karioki Chapara. reputed com mander of all Mau Mau terror ists in the city.
