Increased world tensions art
anticipated due to the blow up
of the Paris summit meeting, I
which the Soviets refused to at
tend unless tendered an apology
by the United States for the spy
plane incident. The Russian po
sition, according to European
I reports, aroused the Western
Allies to realize they need now
to reappraise defenses and hold
firm against any Soviet pres
sures. The summit meeting broke up
Tuesday after President EisJI.
hower. President DeGualle and
Prime Minister Marmillan - wait
ed for hours for Khrushchev to
accept their invitations to medi
ate the problems for which the
meeting was originally called.
Khrushchev refused to show up
and the West then issued a
statement terminating the con
ference. It became apparent Monday
the summit meeting was doomer'
to fail when Khrushchev, on thr
opening day of the event, de
nounced President Eisenhowei
and the United States, the-
withdrew the Russian invitation
for President Eisenhower to
visit Russia. It has been an
nounced the President will en
large his Asian tour to include
several visits to countries not
previously included in the tour.
The events in Paris are exoect
ed to have definite baaring on
the upcoming political campaign
in the United States. What ap
parently was to be a presiden
tial campaign without issues is
now expected to develop into
one in which foreign policy will
be a main point of discussion.
Sen. John Kennedy (D-Mass)
won another presidential prim
ary this week! and is now con
cluded to have about 35 per cent
of the national delegates pledg- J
ed to him as he seeks the
Democratic nomination. Ken

week in Maryland over Senator
Wayne Morse (D-Ore.)
