V3MJMEI Reds Expected To Turn Down Truman Proposal WASHINGTON. (UP)— President Truman put the issue of disarmament squarely up to the Kremlin last night but administra tion officials said today it was “mast unlikely” Russia will rip the Iron Curtain to allow U. N. inspection of atomic stockpiles and other armaments. . In a major foreign policy speech, Mr. Truman challenged the Soviets to accept the global arms control plan of the United States, Britain and France as the best way to “lessen the risk of war.” State and Defense Department officials conceded that hopes were not high that the Russians will agree to the proposal They pointed out that Russia never has permitted foreigners inside its borders for in spection purposes. REJECTION EXPECTED A high official in the Russian embassy indicated last night that the Kremlin would turn down the plan. He said it did not include anything new, and merely repeated the Soviet-rejected plan which elder statesman Bernard M. Baruch put before the United Nations. Baruch's plan Included interna tional. Inspection of armaments.’ It was this point that Russia opposed. The embassy official said Mr. Truman's speech was nothing but words, and that Russia wants action to end the arms race. Inspection and a census of arma ments and armed forces are the heart of the disarmament plan. “Any nation which is not willing to agree to this step, and to carry it out, is not really Interested in disarmament," Mr. Truman de clared. “I urge the Kremlin to accept this proposal. I urge them to make it known to the people of the Soviet Union.” , But he made it clear that tl|e West would not. accept promises of action, or slow down its mobilisa tion rather than propaganda its to wor with the free world on a "foolproof" disarmament system.
