New U.S. Stand on Syria Anticipated in Washington; Henderson Due Today

Download PDF for this date

A new expression of the attitude of the United States toward Syria is anticipated here following the return to Washington tomorrow of Undersecretary of State Loy Henderson from the Middle East with a first hand report on Syria’s swing toward the Soviet orbit.

Mr. Henderson is expected to confer immediately upon his arrival with top officials, probably including President Eisenhower. A State Department spokesman announced that Secretary of State Dulles will not hold a press conference this week. One of the reasons for this is believed to be Mr. Dulles’ desire to discuss the Syrian situation with Mr. Henderson in the light of the views and information the special envoy is bringing.
