Democrats See Speech
Aiding Stevenson Stature Adlai Stevenson's Monday night speech on Par Eastern pol icy seems to have pleased Demo crats of nearly every shade of opinion and strengthened the 1952 presidential nominee's po sition in the party At the same time, a number of foreign diplomats and some State Department officials view the speech as giving President Eisenhower more room for dip lomatic maneuvering on the ex plosive Formosa issue. In his speech. Mr. Stevenson cautioned against risks he said existed in any decision by this country to defend the islands of Matsu and Quemoy against the Chinese Communists without the backing of America's allies. He called for a joint declaration by the free nations, with Russia in vited to join, condemning the use of force in the 100-mile-wioe strait between Formosa and the Red Chinese mainland. George, Lehman Praise Talk Senate Democrats as far apart on Far Eastern policy as Senators George of Georgia and Lehman of New York have praised the speech. The nearest thing to dissent from within party ranks came in a call from Senator Thurmond of South Carolina for non-parti san support of President Eisen hower's Formosa policies. Sena tor Thurmond, no Stevenson backer in 1952, did not mention Mr. Stevenson in a letter to con stituents. Senator Sparkman of Alabama, who was Mr. Stevenson’s run ning mate in 1952, said in an interview he feels there is no one in a position to challenge the formgr Illinois Governor for the 1956 presidential nomination if he wants it. “If Mr. Stevenson announces that he would like to be the candidate again, it is my opinion he will not have serious opposi tion at the convention,” Sena tor Sparkman said. Agrees With Stevenson Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, the Democratic leader, said that in discussing the For mosa problem Mr. Stevenson was “correct in asserting that the only real solution lies in due re gard to realities in Asia rather than in saber rattling and bluster.” Senator Lehman said Mr. Stevenson had summed up “the doubts, questions and fears that ALL 3 HECHT CO.

British, French and other for -1 eign diplomats in the Capital were reported generally en couraged by Mr. Stevenson’s formula for avoiding hostilities , over the rival Red Chinese and 1 Nationalist claims to the oS shore islands. None would say, however,; whether their governments would agree to join the United States 1 in declaring readiness to fight for Formosa, if Quemoy and i 1 Matsu were abandoned to the .
