LONDON, (TP) — Secretax-y of
State Dulles asked 18 nations
yesterday to press Egypt for a
shax-e in control of Suez Canal
traffic. He plainly indicated the
canal might be boycotted if Egypt
refused to coopex-ate.
Dulles added an emphatic warn
ing that an eventual Suez solution
must conform with justice and law
as well as with peace.
Five of the countries at the con-
fex-ence balked at the Dulles out
line of the project.
He chai-acterized the canal dis
pute as a test case of the woxld’s
ability to deal with its problems.
“If thex-e is no substitute fox-
force in achieving just solutions
the woi’ld will relapse into chaos,”
he said.
This is the six-point Western Big
Thx-ee plan presented by Secretary
of State Dulles to the London Suez
confex-ence yesterday.
1. The 18 conferring nations
should band together until an ac
ceptable settlement is reached
with Egypt.
2. The 18 should stick to their
proposals for international control
of the canal as the basis of a
final settlement.
3. The 18 should create an opex--
ating staff to coordinate with
Egypt on the pattern of canal
traffic. The staff, headed by a
maritime expert and including
pilots, would guide the ships of
member nations through Suez, col
lect dues and shax-e thq income
with Egypt. The expei't, as admin
istrative agent of the 18, could
supexwise detoux-ing ships around
South Afx-ica if it is decided to
bypass the canal.
4. A small governing boax-d
should be set up to develop long-
tex-m alternatives to the Suez
Canal-including the use of big
tankers which would sail aroxxnd
the cape and the constx-uction of
new oil pipelines to Mediterranean
tex-minals, if necessax-y.
5. A modest working fuxid should
be created.
6. Membex-ship of the associa
tion would bind no country to
wider obligations - such as, px-e-
