After installing the module you have a new option for each news archive to select a "Master archive". Choose if the archive is a master archive (language of your fallback page tree) or a slave archive.
Be aware that you only have master archive of foreign languages in the list. If the select menu does not have any options, you either don't have more than one news archive, no archive in a foreign language or no master archive in a foreign language.
