Kansas City, Dec. 23.—Assured 
of at least a white Christmas, Pres- 
ident Truman today interrupted his 
holiday at home for a morning's 
work which included a 12-minute 
‘telephone talk with Acting Secre- 
‘tary of State Robert A. Lovett. 

From his Hotel Muehlebach pent- 
house office Mr. Truman talked by 
itelephone with Lovett in Washing- 
‘ton in what Press Secretary Charles 
‘G. Ross described as “a survey of 
idevelopments in the last 24 hours.” 
Ross added: 
| “It. was no policy-making talk. 
‘It was just a fill-in on foreign af- 
fairs.” By the time the President 
‘arrived at the hotel from his home

Edessa is on the main railroad 

route to Florina, and has a popu- 
lation of more than 20.000. 
Edessa is the second major 

Greek town attacked in force 

within the last 10 days. The 
guerilla sseized Kardhista last 
week and held it temporarily.

Takes a 19-Block Walk 

Mr. Truman started his day with 
a 19-block walk near his home, 
trailed by 10 reporters and 3 pho- 
\ographers, some of whom had 
difficulty maintaining the brisk 
pace he set. The President greet- 
ed neighbors along the way and 
exchanged banter with panting 

“That was just a mile and a

walk ended in front of his home.

ing and we'll go 2 miles. I'm going 
to get you in shape.”

The collective farms operated 

by the Jews are “terrific,” he said 

and are working with a hich de-

Politically, he said, the Jewish 

community is divided to include 

middie-of-the-read liberals, right- 

ists and leftists. Most of the recog- 

nized leaders, he asserted, are mid- 
die-of-the-roaders with a “slight 
leaning” toward socialism.

inherent enmity existed between 
the Jews and Arabs, Stedman cited

‘Red Sabotage’ 
Article Brings 
$100,000 Suit 

Russell M. Shepherd, former di- 
rector of the Foreign Broadcast 
Intelligence Service, yesterday 
filed suit in District Court for 
$100,000 damages against Ernest 
R. Pope, former chief of the Daily 
Report Division of the FBIS. 

The suit charges that Pope wrote 
an article, entitled “I've Watched 
the Reds Sabotage the State De- 
partment,” in which he “mali- 
ciously made statements which 

the committee, “notably the Trans-; were false scandalous and defama-| 

tory” about “Director X,” head of 
the organization at one time. The 
article appeared in the December 
1948 issue of Argosy Magazine. 
Shepherd's suit declares that “Di- 
rector X” in the story could apply 

only to him. He served as chief

All-Time Low 

Of -ell the shocking exhibitions of head- 
line-hunting the Un-American Activities 
Committee and its members have perpe- 
trafed, none is more. outrageous than the 
release of secret and unsubstantiated testi- 

mony damning the memory of Laurence Dug- 
gam, a man who cannot defend his repu- 
tation. In this, Representative Nixon must 
share. blame with Representative Mundt. 
On the advice of the committee's counsel 
and of “some of the best newspaper people 
in America,” the two took it upon them- 
selves, as a quorum of a subcommittee, to 
release what Isaac Don Levine said Whit- 
taker Chambers said to Adolph Berle nine 
years.ago. Why any newspapermen at all 
were consulted can only be explained by the 




fact that headlines appear in newspapers. ~ 

On whatever grounds and on whosever 
advice the action was taken, it was utterly 
repréhensible. Other members of the sub- 
committee who were not consulted have 
criticized the Mundt-Nixon decision as bit- 
terly as anybody. It was, in the words of 
Représentative Hebert, “a blunder, a breach 
of ‘confidence, and a violation of agreed- 
upon procedure,” another example of “head- 
line happiness.” Even Representative Ran- 
kin, not himself a model of reticence, said he 
would have protested the “atrocious” 
disclosure. “It is incongruous,” declared 
Hebert, “that a committee which is de- 
nouncing leaks in the State Department 
and other Government agearcies can't stop 
leaks within its own ranks.” 

As if the smearing ot a dead man’s name 
‘were not enough, Mr. Mundt followed up the 
next day with a statement that reaches an 
all-time low in public sadism. Asked when 
the committee would release the names of 
others mentioned’ in the same testimony, 
Mundt quipped, “We will give them out 
as they jump out of windows.” No more 
revolting—and revealing—a sentence has 
issued from the mouth of a Congressman 
within our memory. The exhibition puts in 
new perspective the Mundt proposal for self- 


The increasing number of industrial lay- . 

offs and the growing number of workers on 
part time raise the question whether em- 
ployment may have passed its peak, with a 
business recession in the offing. The De- 
partment of Labor reports that the October 
hiring rate was the lowest for any Oc- 
tober since 1939, while the layoff rate was 
higher than a year ago. Layoffs were most 
marked in such industries as cotton and 
woolen textiles, boots, shoes, and leather 
where demand didn’t come up to expegc- 
tations. More recent private surveys of 
employment conditions indicate that in 
some parts of the country, particularly 
in New England, layoffs have been spread- 
ing and are the subject of anxious confer- 
ences by local officials. This week, the Wall 
Street Journal published two extensive sur- 
veys of employment conditions that showed 
up some rather bad spots. Even in some 
multiple-industry localities covered by the 
surveys where over-all employment is still 
at record levels, labor surpluses are develop- 
ing in particular lines of employment. 

New York City, center of consumer goods 
industries and the luxury trades, has been 
particularly hard hit, with more than a 
quarter of a million of its workers currently 
unemployed. Thousands of the city’s gar- 
ment workers, for example, have been laid 
off, while other thousands are working only 
part time. The amusement industry, the 
hotels and the restaurants are also suffering 
from loss of patronage, which means less- 
ened employment for city residents. 

This spotty labor market is attributed in 
part to the return of ‘the seasonal buying 
pattern that prevailed before the war when 
year-end layoffs were the rule in a good 
many lines of business. Consequently those 
who look on the bright side of the business 
picture expect the local drop in employment 
te be followed by a pickup similar to that 
experienced in the years when seasonal 
buying was expected and prepared for. 
Nevertheless, the change in buying prac- 
tices is significant evidence of a relaxation 
of the buying pressure that has been so 
strong and sustained as to iron out seasonal 
fluctuations in these postwar years. It indi- 
cates that, with some exceptions, scarcities 
have disappeared and the public is no longer 
buying goods out of season for fear of being 
confronted by empty shelves when need 

If the present seasonal recession merely 
reflects a better balance between supply 
amd demand it is nothing to worry about 

y A. 

but rather a reason for giving thanks. 
However, there is a good deal of evidence to 
show that seasonal factors are not solely 
accountable for current localized declines 
in employment. Consumers are pinched by 
high living costs, and having satisfied their 
most urgent demands they are becoming 
from necessity as well as from choice more 
cautious and selective buyers. Moreover, in 
many cases savings have been exhausted, 
and personal indebtedness has made inroads 
on income from earnings, with the result of 
further curtailing consumer buying power. 
Although there is no current evidence to sup- 
port a prediction that a recession lies ahead, 

there is ground for concluding that con- 

tinued prosperity would be gravely threat- 
ened by any increase if inflationary pres- 
sures that would further impair consumer 

purchasing power at a critical stage of post- . 

war adjustment to more normal peacetime 

First Line Of Defense 

The really significant aspect of defense, it 
has been aptly obsérved, is not what military 
preparations we include, but what we leave 
out. No amount of billions could construct 

a Chinese Wall against all contingencies. In 
other words, absolute security is not possible 
in a relative world, and our defense neces- 
sarily must be based on g calculated risk. 
More than ever, intelligence has become 
the first line of defense—for it is intelligence 
that must determine what defense measures 
we take. 

That our intelligence operations are not 
yet adequate is confirmed by the Eberstadt 
committee. It mentions the obvious de- 
ficiencies in medical and scientific data. 
But what is the most damning is its laconic 
observation about the war scare last spring. 
“Testimony -was presented to the commit- 
tee,” the report notes, “that in the spring 
of 1948 a mistaken intelligence estimate, 
prepared by a departmental intelligence 
agency, stimulated recommendations which 
if followed might have had serious conse- 
quences.” Those consequences were war 
with Russia. 

The Alsop brothers, in their column 
published Wednesday in this newspaper, 
related the background of the incident. An 
intelligence report which they said emanated 
from the Air Forée predicted an imminent 
attack on Scandinavia. It indicated that 
Russia might have decided on immediate 
war with the United States and discussed the 
possibility of attack on this country. For- 
tunately, before any countermeasures were 
taker, the Central Intelligence Agency came 
out with a sharply differing opinion which 
was accepted by President Truman. 

Secretary Forrestal subsequently has de- 
nied that the Air Force was to blame for 
the boner. Regardless of what intelligence 
fgency was involved, however, there is no 
doubt that the false estimate disturbed 
Secretary of State Marshall. The final 
consequence, as described by the Alsops, 
was the effort to reassure Russia in the 
event that reports of the alarm had leaked 
back to the Kremlin. The result was the 
Smith-Molotov exchange with which Rus- 
sian propaganda had such a field day. What 
the Alsops do not mention is the prior ef- 
fect of the scare in promoting hysteria in 
this country. Undoubtedly it contributed 
in large measure to the flighty congressional 
vote for 70 air groups. This was an emo- 
tional response based on a slogan rather 
than the needs of a balanced defense. 

The same thing could have happened, 
of course, as the result of a similar single 
report from any of the other organizations 
that contribute intelligence, and there is no 
evidence that this particular estimate was 
anything but an honest appraisal. The 
moral is that evaluation is the key to suc- 
cessful intelligence. Reports come from 
many diverse agencies, and any one of them 
may be wrong. Before any intelligence 
estimate can be used as the basis of a sen- 
sible national policy, it must be weighed 
against the background of all information 
available. This in turn emphasizes the ne- 
cessity for the Central Intelligence Agency 
to remain apart from and above the mili- 
tary—for only such an agency is competent 
to fit military reports into the larger field 
of political intelligence. In the atomic age, 
to act just once on erroneous intelligence 
might well prove fatal. 

Overseas Airlines 

Offhand the prospective merger of 
American Overseas Airlines with Pan Ameri- 
can World Airways may seem to give a fillip 
to the concept of a single chosen instrument 
for international air traffic. That is not 
necessarily the proper construction to put 
on this case. Thére have been three United 
States carriers to Europe, and while the 
projected augmentation of Pan American's 
operations undoubtedly would give it the 
major share of Atlantic business, Trans- 
World Airlines presumably would remain 
an energetic competitor with a healthy part 
of the traffic over some of the best routes. 

Announcement of the intended purchase 
has come as something of a surprise. As a 
matter of fact, American Airlines has been 
one of the principal opponents of the chosen 
instrument idea for which Pan American 
has labored. The merger seems to be 
strictly one of economics. American is chary 
of the prospects of future business. Ac- 
ceptance of the eight new Boeing Strato- 
cruisers it has on order would require ex- 
tensive refinancing, whereas Pan American 
is in a position to take over American's 
commitments along with its own orders for 
new equipment. 

Before the merger can take effect, it, of 
course, must have the approval of the Civil 
Aeronautics Board. Domestically the CAB 
has held the view that mergers bringing 

greater economic solidarity are desirable. 

There is reason to extend this view to 
cover the present case. When three carriers 
were certificated for transatlantic service 
in 1945, the CAB docistonywes questioned on 


the ground that there would be sufficient 
business for two lines but not for three. 
Ironically, Trans-World has been the most 
vulnerable financially of the three Ameri- 
can-flag carriers. Whether it can meet suc- 
cessfully the challenge of an aggrandized 
Pan American remains to be seen; if for any 
reason it should falter, then the chosen in- 
strument would be a fait accompli. But 
this is the chance the CAB must take. In 
any event, the function of the CAB is not 
to force competition to the point where it 
becomes artificial, but to regulate it in the 

_national interest. And two relatively strong 

Atlantic carriers may prove to be more in 
the national interest than three companies 
unable to attain a sound financial base. 

Weighted Juries 

A slim majority of the Supreme Court has 

upheld the conviction of Robert Frazier for * 

violation of the Narcotics Act by a jury com- 
posed entirely of Federal employes, but the 
defects in the jury system which the case ex- 
poses certainly should not be permitted to 
stand. The court appears to have been 
strongly influenced by the fact that the all- 

Federal jury resulted from the peremptory 
challenging of other prospective jurors by 
Frazier’s attorney. If the defendant was de- 
prived of an impartial jury, the court said in 
effect it was by his own choice. To the com- 
plaint that the jury system in the District of 
Columbia tends to overweight juries with 
Government employes, the court replied that 
this was not proved by evidence given under 
oath. The decision thus appears to rest more 
on technicalities than on the merits of the 
existing means of selecting jurors here. | 
Four dissenting justices took the broader 
ground that the courts have an interest in in- 
suring impartial juries regardless of ‘the 
actions of individual defendants and lawyers. 
“The Treastiry prosecuted this case. Yet one 
of the jurors and the wife of another are em- 
ployed by the Treasury. All are employed 
by the Government. We heartily applauded 
when Government workers were permitted 
to serve as jurors, but certainly it is another 
matter to have all-Federal juries sitting in 
cases prosecuted by governmental agencies. 
In these days when the Government is prob- 
ing into the loyalty of every employe there is 
certainly danger that unconscious pressure 
to return a verdict favorable to the prose- 
cuting agency may be felt by jurors in the 
Federal service. 
‘The danger of packing juries is magnified, 
as Justice Jackson's dissent notes, by the fact 
that the nongovernmental juror receives $4 a 

day, while jurors employed by the Govern-. 

ment draw their regular pay. Apparently 
realizing that the $4 fee will impose a hard- 
ship on almost any employed person, the trial 
.court asked all the prospective jurors who 
did not wish to serve to step aside. The re- 
sult of this practice is unquestionably to over- 
load juries with Government workers and 
housewives. Unless this system is corrected 
by more adequate fees for jurors and stiffer 
requirements for jury service, the next case 
of this sort that goes to the Supreme Court 
may be too flagrant for even five justices to 
stomach. Juries packed with Government 
employes are no more defensible than juries 
packed with other special-interest groups. 
The system ought to draw upon a fair cross- 
section of our citizenry, and the soundness 
of that objective is not altered by the narrow 
squeak of the Frazier case. 

Reaction To The Dutch 

In the first five days of “policing” the 
Republic of Indonesia, Dutch troops on Java 
and Sumatra have advanced almost at will. 
The Netherlands’ obvious intent to clean up 

the situation before any restraining action 
by the United Nations could take effect is 
bringing results—of two kinds. Militarily 
the Dutch armies: are moving at full speed. 
But they are not keeping ahead of the 
whirlwind of international indignation the 
action has stirred up. 

Speaking for Australia, Colonel Hodgson 
has leveled at The Hague the most devas- 
tating aé¢cusation heard in the United 
Nations against any nation but Russia: it is 
doing to Indonesia “what Hitler did to the 
Netherlands in 1940”; its action is “the 
first clear-cut violation of the United Nations 
Charter”; it should be expelled from the 
U. N. These are strong words, doubt- 
less too strong for the facts. The Nether- 
lands is certainly violating the spirit of the 
Charter though probably not its letter, 
though expulsion is not the proper curative. 

But if the Australian delegate has gone 

off the deep end, his sentiments differ only 
in degree from those of every other nation 
that has spoken or acted. Even without the 
Good Offices Committee’s outright con- 
demnation of the Dutch for breaking faith, 
the reactions from various parts of the 
world add up to bad news for the Nether- 
lands. The ECA has cut off additional aid: 
India has stopped all Dutch air traffic; there 
have been anti-Dutch riots in both India and 
Burma; China, itself engaged in a civil war, 
has joineil the chorus demanding a stop to 
the fighting; the United States, which was 
inclined to make the strongest sort of repre- 
sentation’, has proposed a cease-fire and 
troop-withdrawal resolution; and Russia has 
called for action against the Dutch as “ag- 
gressors.” ’ 

No one can take any pleasure from the 
recitation of these developments. Whether 
they will turn the Dutch aside from. their 
determination to go through with the police 
action, come what may, is dubious. The 
Security Council is divided on the strength 
of the action it should take. It will not meet 
again until Friday, but by then the damage 
will have been done. The Netherlands 
stands in southeast Asia as a representa- 
tive—and heretofore a most enlightened 
one—of the Western world. That it has 
fallen into so unhappy a course will cause 
no end of trouble. The Australian outburst, 
for all.its extremism, reflects a widespread 
feeling that the Dutch, of all people, have 
poisoned the wells of East-West understand- 
ing, and dealt a blow below the belt to the 
United Nations.

Letters To The Editor 

Hindsight On Yalta 

There is, apparently, even 
three years after, still no sure 
defense for the casual reader 
against periodic onslaughts from 
the prophetic hindsight of our 
Monday morning quarterbacks of 
the late war. 

Admiral Zacharias, who is, 
perhaps, more specatcular than 
most in this regard, has, accord- 
ing to an A.P. dispatch of De- 
cember 17 published locally, 
come forward in the January 
issue of the United Nations 
World with the amazing inside 
story of his own wartime esti- 

mate of the impending end of 
hostilities against Japan. which 
was, of course, ignored by the 
responsible authorities—an over- 
sight, he tells us, that led direct- 
ly to the unhappy concessions of 

It is a little irritating to some 
of us who were actually taking 
part in field operations against 
the Japanese at the time of 
Yalta to be constantly and glibly 
told how abysmally stupid were 
the President and his military 
advisers in not realizing in Feb- 
ruary, 194), that the Japanese 
were inevitably destined to sur- 
render in August of the same 
year—even before an invasion of 
their \omeland had been under- 

So far as I am aware the ad- 
miral has not chosen to tell us 
what private evidence he ‘iad 
available at the time which cun- 
clusively proved that the Jap- 
anese ccild be counted on to 
surrender simply because they 
happened to be rather obviously 
outnumbered, outequipped, and 
outmaneuvered. Every land 
operation from Tarawa to Saipan 
and from Biak to Balete Pass 
had in fact painfully demonstrat- 
ed the exact contrary. 

The one thing which all these 
second-guessers on Yalta over- 
look is this: the fact that the 
Japanese actually did surrender 
in August, 1945, does not neces- 
sarily prove that the assumption 
that they would do so would 
have been a valid one to make 
in February, 1945. 


Schenectady, N. Y. . 

1%4-Cent Postage 

Many people who send Christ- 
mas cards do not realize two 
things: (a) The difference be- 
tween sending a card first-class 
mail (3c) and sending the same 
card third class (lc), and (b) 
what difference the dimensio.s 
of the card make in its being de- 
livered in perfect condition. 

The theory was that the 1c 
card could be handled in bulk as 
third class, in the main. so that 
it would not cost so much to 
handle as the regular first-class 
rate. That would mean that dis- 
tribution would be made in ter- 
minals so as to save car distrib- 
uting space in trains, and with 
lower graded personnel, for in- 
stance. But gradually a great 
deal of it had to be handled just 
as first-class mail is handled. 

Another difficulty is that these 
unsealed envelopes actually take 
more time to handle than the 
sealed ones. A Christmas card 
rarely fits a distributing box, 
especially on trains, where the 
width of the box is only 4% 
inches. Where a card doesn't 
fit you have to bend it. When the 
card isn't sealed there is a V- 
shaped gap in the under side of 
the card.. In the hurry of distri- 
bution this often causes a box to 
jam before it is full of letters, 
and a box must be tied up be- 
fore it is full. 

The more time it takes, the 
more money it costs the public, 
and if the public won't pay 
enough revenue into the Post- 
office Department to make it self- 
supporting, it then must pay it in 

Communications must be 
addressed to the editor and 
must carry the complete name 
and street address of the 
writer, though pen names will 
be permitted at the editor's 
discretion. Letters of less than 
200 words will be given pref- 
erence, and all letters are sub-

_— = 

llec postage on it. I get the im- 
pression that people are sending 
me cards mechanhically—if | get 
them, O. K.; if not, they will 
never know the difference unless 
1 tell them (the lec card does 
not rate return service). 

Some people actually have the 
idea that they can skimp on post- 
age, just as they try by every 
means to avoid paying taxes, and 
make someone else pay it. This 
selfish attitude which some of us 
assume as individuals is hardly in 
keeping with our attitude as a 
Nation toward the rest of the 



Miscegenation . 

The State of Mississippi has 
made a strategic error by im- 
prisoning War Veteran Davis 
Knizht on a charge of miscege- 
nation based on the ground that 

his great-grandmother is alleged 
to have been a Negro. Questions 
concerning an individual's great- 
grandparentage and hence the 
“nurity” of his master race blood 
carry too reminiscent an echo to 
the public memory. 

On the eve of the opening of a 
battle for civil rights legislation 
in Congress, Mississippi must 
realize the light in which it has 
cast itself. 



Soviet Rule In 

I am disappointed that The 
Washington Post should have 
given currency to such interpre- 
tations of the situation in coun- 
tries under Soviet domination 
as are contained in the recent 
series of articles by Theodore 
H. White. The tone and purport 
of the articles would make an 
unwary reader believe that real 
progress toward a decent exist- 
ence is being made in Czecho- 
slovakia, Poland and Hungary 
with growing support from the 
people. The statements and in- 
nuendoes that would tend to con- 
vey a pleasing picture to the 
ordinary reader all but bury the 
fewe and perfunctory sentences 
that convey any inkling of the 
basic realities. 

Thus, from the description of 
Hilary Mince as “the architect of 
Poland's recovery” and “the out- 
standing Communist industrial 
genius of Europe,” no one would 
suppose that this Moscow- 
trained Pole is, in fact, one of 
the principal Soviet agents in 
eastern Europe, one of the hand- 
ful of top Quislings who is prin- 
cipally responsible for chaining 
the Polish people to the Soviet 

In addition, the writer fails 
to make any mention of the fact 
that the greatly increased out- 
put of coal in Poland is due to 
Poland's having acquired the 
German Silesian mines and 
operating them with prisoners of 
war and virtual slave labor. 

Nor does the innoeent state- 
ment that “politics have swung 
Czechoslovakia out of her tradi- 
tional trade orbit” and the bland 
discussion which follows it con- 
tain a single word to indicate 
that the basic significance of 
this development is to force 
Czechoslovakia into lines of de- 
velopment detrimental to its na- 
tional economic welfare in order 
to serve Soviet interests. No al- 
lusion is made to the ironic fact 
that we are witnessing a latter- 
day development of colonial ex- 
ploitation executed with hither- 
to undreamed of thoroughness 
by the “great protector of ex- 
ploited peoples.” : 

Government Holiday 

Through a legal technicality 
no time off from work will be 
granted Government employes 
this season for Christmas and 
New Year's Day (because they 
fall on Saturday). A half day off 
the day before Christmas has 
been granted but no time off the 
day before New Year's. The net 
result of this whole situation in 
effect is to deprive Government 
employes of 142 days holiday. 

Would it not be a gesture in 
accord with the time-honored 
spirit of the Christmas season 
for the President, at least, to 
permit Government employes to 
take off the Monday following 
Christmas? i. ae 


Press Club Prejudice 

A December 20 column in the 
New York Star reports that 
William H. Hastie, Governor of 
the Virgin Islands, was refused 
luncheon service as a guest of 
1. F. Stone at the National Press 
Club here in Washington. When 
Mr. Stone attempted to call a 
special meeting to lodge a for- 
mal protest, he could only mus- 
ter 10 out of the 25 required 

Are these gentlemen in the 
National Press Club the same 
who write so gallantly and coura- 
geously of democracy in their 
daily newspaper columns? 

Surely we can expect the Na- 
tional Press Club with its elite 
corps of reporters to represent 
the real democratic principles of 
this country and not to succumb 
to petty local prejudice. 


Mount Rainier, Md. 

Eastern Europe 

Yet, if there is any aspect of 
the postwar position of these 
countries that deserves mention, 
it is the fact that from now on 
when we think of colonial ex- 
ploitation we must think, not of 
distant lands and different races 
separated from a conqueror by 
hundreds or thousands of miles 
of blue water but of the Blue 
Danube and the unhappy peoples 
from its mouth to the Baltic Sea 
who have become the colonial 
peoples of this new empire—all 
of them next door neighbors and 
racial cousins of their Soviet 
masters. : 

Perhaps one of the most 
dangerous innuendoes concern- 
ing the new regimes is the state- 

ment that “the peoples they gov- « 

ern have accepted them not in 
battle but by default.” The im- 
plication that the people of Po- 
land, Czechoslovakia or Hungary 
have in any sense “accepted” 
their Communist overlords is 
completely and demonstrably 

Only by rigged elections in 
Hungary and Poland, supported 
by the presence of Soviet troops 
in both countries, were the Com- 
munists able to win: and in 
Czechoslovakia the prospect of 
certain defeat at a fair election 
brought about a Communist 
coup a few days after the sud- 
den arrival of Soviet Deputy 
Foreign Minister Zorin from 

The fact is that these regimes 
are supported by Soviet bayonets 
just as truly as if they had 
actually been put in power by 
the direct exercise of Soviet 
military force, and if the threat 
of that force were not ever pres- 
ent, they would not, even today, 
, survive for a week. 

This letter would be as long as 
the articles themselves if it were 
to deal adequately with the dis- 
tortions that they contain, but I 
cannot forbear, even in this ip- 
complete fashion, calling your 
attention to the basically false 
impression they convey. 


Representative From Massa- 




By Marquis Childs 

U.N. As A Refugee 
days customarily show the United 

Nations as a poor, frightened 
creature seeking refuge from the 
storms of violence and hatred 
sweeping across a divided world. 
She huddles in a doorway out of 

the cold, this poor helpless neg- 
lected thing. 

The reality behind the symbol 
is more obvious every day. The 
flagrant violation of the United 
Nations truce agreement in In- 
donesia by the Netherlands gove 
ernment is just one more slap in 
the face for the U. N. 

It is, of course, a particularly 
violent s'ap. So much is at stake 
as Asia’s millions move from 
colonialism toward independ- 
ence. This is one of those great 
marches of history that no force 
can deny. 

In the hope that the transition 
might occur peaceably the U. N. . 
had served as intermediary in 
difficult negotiations extending 
over many months. Now the U. 

N. Good Offices Committee 
(ironic name) can only shake an 

admonitory finger at. the of- 

The next session of the U. N, 
General Assembly will be held 
in this country. The date tenta- 
tively set is April 1. That points 
up a controversy which has been 
going on in New York for a 
long time. 

One of the few constructive 
measures passed by the special 
Sessions of Congress last sum- 
mer provided a loan of 65 mil- 
lion dollars to the U. N. to build 
its headquarters on New York’s 
East Side. The new buildings 
are to rise on the site donated 
by John D.. Rockefeller, jr., 
whose gift to the U. N. was 
valued at $8,500,000. 


BUT IT happens that this site 
is in a blighted area. The mag- 
nificent new buildings will be 
approached through tenements 
and decaying commercial prop- 
erty. It is here that the con- 
troversy comes in. : 

The New York real estate 
firm, Webb & Knapp, that put 
together the site for Rockefeller 
has developed a comprehensive 
plan for improving the area 
around the site. New apartment 
buildings, shops, museums. a 
music center would come into 
being to enhance what would be, 
in effect, the capital of the 

Opposed to this plan is that 
doughty character, Robert Moses, 
planner and park designer, who 
has done so much to change the 
environs of the greatest city in 
the world. Moses, city construc- 
tion coordinator, stubbornly in- 
sists that all that can be done 
or will be done is to widen cere 
tain of the streets approaching 
the site. 

In a bitter dispute before New 
York’s Board of Estimate, Mayor 
William O’Dwyer accused Webb 
& Knapp of a financial 
interest through sale of real 
estate in a area. The firm had 
proposed certain property 
be condemned by the city and 
sold under condemnation. Not 
long after this charge was made, 
Webb & Knapp, one of the larg- 
est operators in New York, sold 
all the parcels they owned ad- 
joining the U. N. site. 


THIS STEP was taken in 
order to avoid any appearance 
of having a selfish interest. But 
it did not break the deadlock. 
Moses, according to last report, 
is still holding out for his lim- 
ited objective. 

This may seem to be a teapot 
tempest when measured along- 
side the other troubles brewing 
in various parts of the earth. Yet 
is has more sirnificance than we 
may realize. The psychologists 
tell us that what we do counts 
for more than what we say. 

From the first the U. N. has 
fared badly in this country. U. N. 
officials will not soon forget 
their scramble to find aplace to 
build a world capital. The poor 
refugee went from city to city, 
including several here in the 
East that had ~eemed. to be 

When, however, it came down 
to acquiring land and inconven- 
iencing someone, the story was 
different. One of the embarrass- 
ing experiences occurred in Bos- 
ton. There the members of the 
U. N. committee seeking a site, 
looked with favor on the rolling 
country around Beverly, a sub- 
But promptly screams of an- 
guish came from the wealthy sub- 
urbanites and especially from 
the members of the Myopia’ 
Hunt Club. What, they said, 
bring in all these foreigners and 
ruin our peace and quiet? The 
committee got a similar recep- 
tion in suburban Westchester 
County, N. Y. 

There were communities in 
this country genuinely anxious 
to have the U. N. They lost out 
to New York City. New York 
cannot shirk the job of provid- 
ing a suitable location. That is 
the least that can be done for 
the poor refugee. 


Extra Postmen 

Why is it every year at Christ- 
mas the city postoffice hires 
extra men and boys who don’t 
know and don’t care whether 
the cards, letters and packages 
are sent right or wrong as long 
as they get paid? 

The regular men know the 
work and want the extra time; 
but all they get is two days ex- 
tra. It takes three or four new 
men to do the same work a4 
regular man can do. Where are 
the departments saving money 
this way? C.A 


Naval Aviation 

NAVAL aviation should have 
a direct prrticipation in the 
plans, development, and con- 
duct of strategic bombardment. 
This must remain so until tech- 
nology can produce a practical 
bomber capable of round-trip 
loaded flight between the West- 
ern Hemisphere and every pos- 
sible target in the Eastern Hemi- 
sphere. However, when such 
aircraft are in operation, then 
strategic bombardment may be 
entirely the responsibility of 
the Air Force. Two lines of 
reasoning support this conclu- 
sion: military principle and mili- 
tary ex ‘ 

First, consider the principal 
wartime missions of the Navy: 

1. Protection of the sea lanes 
from enemy attack in order that 
supplies and troops may move 
safely from. point to point. 
Thus the Navy convoys cargo 
and troop-carriers and seeks to 
destroy enemy fighting ships so 
they may not attack such cargo- 
troop vessels. The sinking of 
enemy cargo-troop vessels is 
simply a reciprocal of the other. 

2. Blockade. 

3. Shelling ‘or bombarding) 
shore installations. 

We are concerned with the 
third mission, the bombardment 
of shore installations. And here 
shore installations may include 
whole cities or even areas. Bom- 
bardment may be either from 
the giant battleship guns or 
from aircraft operating from 
maval aircraft carriers, both 
methods having been developed 
originally by the Navy to sink 
enemy fighting ships. This is 


JUST AS technology has in- 
creased the size of the bomber 
from a relatively small plane to 
the great B-29, so may technol- 
ogy gradually increase the size 
of the naval aircraft carrier and 
the planes operating from that 
carrier. Therefore, carriers and 
carrier planes may have been 
expected to increase in size and 
power—and actually they have 
done so. 7 

Now, consider the Navy's bom- 
bardment of a beachhead. The 
Navy may bombard the land in 
order to aid Army occupation. 
But suppose the Army wants to 
occupy an inland city instead of 
a beachhead. Why should not 
the Navy also extend similar as- 
sistance, if able, in this objec- 
tive, too? It should. 

Occupation by troops histori- 
cally has been the wartime goal 
of armies. The advent of the 
bomber brought to practical 
light another way to subdue an 
enemy nation — destruction of 
his cities, factories, and lines of 
communication. Thus the U. 5. 
Army during the last 30 years 
slowly developed the Army Air 
Corps to‘ assist in its general 
forms of traditional attack. So 
did the Navy develop its car- 
Tier aviation to assist in its own 
general forms of _ traditional

that the land-based bomber is a |

And economic and military con-

Thus the major responsibility

rest in that military establish-

If, in a war with Russia. we do

fool would make such a forecast.

But the determination is simple: 
it is yes or no. Any doubt what-

officers, George C. Marshall,

Bohlen and George Kennan, are 
men of great ability and energy. 
But they are badly overbur- 
dened. And this concentration 
of authority in so few hands has 
led to a sort of paralysis in the 
lower ranks. 

ONE consequence is that, in 
order to spread responsibility 
where no individual can take 
final decigions, a grotesque com- 
mittee system, fantastically time- 
consuming, has developed. (One 
wag has suggested that the 
theme song of Foggy Bottom, as 
the State Department is not very 
affectionately known, should be 
“Set Up Another Committee,” 
sung to the tune of “Give Us 
Another Old-Fashioned.) This 
committee system has inevitably 
led to a tendency to shove all 
but the most absolutely inescap- 
able decisions under the rug, in 
the same way that a lazy man 
puts off answering a letter until 
it is no longer necessary to 
answer it. 

The Hoover subcommittee. 
headed by Harvey Bundy and 
James Grafton Rogers, has at- 
tacked this mossy situation from 
two different directions. In the 
first place, they suggest 
the load at the top be spread. 
They recommend the appoint- 
ment of two additional dep- 
uty undersecretaries, one with 
responsibility for “high-level 
operational policy”’— in other 
words to take the important 
day-to-day policy decisions-- 
and one to take over all respons- 
ibility for the dull but neces- 
sary routine of administering 
the department. 

MOREOVER, the report rec- 
ommends a new Assistant Secre- 
tary to deal with Congress ‘a 
vitally important job now as- 
signed to Counselor Bohlen as 
one of his innumerable duties) 
and an Assistant Secretary to 
deal with the general public. 
But the most striking recommen- 
dation calls for four new “re- 
gional” Assistant Secretaries and 


If these recommendations are 
put into effect, it will be one of 
those events which are much 
more important than they seem 
to be, The way in which the State 
Department is organized was all 
very well for a time when the 
United States could shuffle along 
comfortably enough with little 
or no foreign policy. But now, 
unfortunately, the United States 
must have a foreign policy, in- 
telligently conceived and de- 
cisively carried out, if we are 
to survive. Some such sweep- 
ing reorganization as that recom- 
mended by Bundy and Rogers is 

essential if the State Department | 

is to do its job. 

YET THERE is a further prob- 
lem, aside from internal re- 
organization of the department, 
which obviously has worried the 
authors of the report, but which 
they have not successfully at- 
tacked. The State Department 
is the agency of the Government 
charged with making foreign 
policy. Yet there are vast areas 
of policy in which the depart- 
ment has either lost or abdicated 
its authority. 

One has only to remember the 
independence with which Gen. 
Lucius Clay and Gen. Douglas 
MacArthur operate in Germany 
and Japan, or the way ECA Ad- 
ministrator Paul Hoffman ap- 
peared recently to revise Amer- 
ican policy in China, or the 
serious charges hurled on his 
own hook by ECA Deputy How- 
ard Bruce at Great Britain, thus 
infuriating our only dependable 
ally, to recognize this fact. 

As a consequence. American 
foreign policy has shown a ten- 
dency to go galloping off in sev- 
eral directions at once, which is 
certainly a dangerous tendency 
in these times. One of the rea- 
sons has been the weakness of 
the State Department, and the 
internal strengthening recom- 
mended by Bundy and Rogers 
may help in time to correct the 
situation. The creation of the 
National Security Council—and 
the Bundy-Rogers report rec- 
ommends more such bodies—has 
been a step in the right direc- 
tion. But if American foreign 
policy is to have the kind of 
unity and firm over-all direction 
which the times require, much 
more remains to be done.

logic can say, “You may develop must not be jeopardized even | 
so far but no further?” There is 
none. The Army Air Corps did 
not cease its development at a 
critical point—it went further 
because military principle and 
plain logic so dictated. The 
Navy, too, should consider its 

one Assistant for 
“multilateral affairs.” Within 
broad limits laid down by the 
Secretary, it would be up to the 
four regional Assistant Secre- 
taries to make their own deci- 
sions in their own areas—Europe, 
the Near East and Africa, the 
Far East and the Western Hem- 
isphere. Meanwhile, the Assist- 
ant Secretary for multilateral 
affairs would act as a sort of 
mediator among them, to keep 
| the lines. uncrossed. 

| Thus in each geographic area 
there would be one ‘man with 
real authority. Accordingly, the 
buck-passing committee system, 
largely designed to avoid or de- 
lay the making of decisions, 
should wither away. Moreover,

Bud and Lou Mix 
rA Mess of Chili 

By Richard L. Coe 

Is TIME ABBOTT AND COSTELLO are in Mexico. The Capi- 
tol’s new arrival is “Mexican Hayride” and stems from the Bobby} 
Clark musical of several seasons ago. | 

It is late in the century to detail the Messrs. A. & C. at length. 
The plot of this one finds Lou involved with both the American police 
and Mexican disguises. He ts sought after quite energetically by 
Luba Malina, a lady'who is, I’m told by those who saw the stage origi- 
nal, pleasantly effusive. In her screen debut, she’s much like a lot of 
other folk, Fifi D’Orsay among them. Her screen hilarity is decidedly 
forced. ‘ 

“Mexican Hayride” obviously was made for the teen-age audience 
which yesterday morning chuckled loud and long over the familiar 
A. & C. disputes. Funniest of the turns concerns Lou (the fat one) 
in the guise of a traveling tamale seller. Lou drapes a black scarf — 
over his head for this mimicry of a chunky female native and seems At The Col bia

A strong possibility that Navy's 
football team will play one of its 
| “home” games next fall at Grif- 

fith Stadium developed yesterday, 
/\The Washington Post learned. 

Although, at the moment, the 
Plans are tentative, vigorous sup- 
port for the game came from the 
Navy Department, the Naval Acad- 
lemy and Calvin Griffith, speaking 
for Clark Griffith. 

Pending further study, the Navy 
'game most likely to be played here 
would be either with Duke, Octo- 
‘ber 8, or Columbia, November 12. 
Both dates still are open at Grif- 
fith Stadium. 

There long has been agitation 
for Navy to play annually in the 
Nation's Capital. The Middies 
haven't appeared here since they 
defeated Virginia, 21-6. October 6, 
‘934. In its last game here before 
that, Navy defeated Maryland, 6-0, 
in 1931. 

The Secretary of Navy's office re- 
ported that part of a general pro- 
gram at the academy was to have 
Navy appear in various parts of 
the country and agreed that there 
was “a lot of merit” in having a 
game in Washington.

“That Clipper Smith must be 
a terrific coach,” the Eagles’ 
Tommy Thompson said after- 
“We beat them in the 
first game by rushing their 
passers and blocking their kicks. 
A week later his passers and 
punters had the best protection

Chances are he blames him- 
self for the inability of the 
Yanks to win on the field or 
draw at the gate, no matter who 
or what actually was responsible. 
When he was coaching at Santa 
Clara with Buck Shaw as his 
assistant, he got together a 
squad that Shaw subsequently 
took to the Sugar Bowl two 
years in succession. But before 
that team had ripened, Clipper 
was in the East coaching Villa- 

, “to prove 
to myself that I could start over 
and do a better job than I'd done 
out there.” 

At Villanova, he developed a 
team that was undefeated for two 
seasons and got well along into 
its third before its streak was 
broken by Texas A. and M., com- 
plete with John Kimbrough. 
Coming home from the first de- 
feat in three years, Clipper was 
ashamed to face his friends.

New CIO Union Backs | 
Federal Pay Hike Range 
From $400 to $1000 | 

CIO's new and right-wing Gov-| 
ernment Workers Union yesterday 
came out for a general pay raise 
bill for Federal workers that 
would range from a minimum in- 
crease of $400 to a top of more 
than $1000. It also called for a 
sweeping revision of the time- 
worn Classification Act. 

The GWU plan proposes a 30) 
per cent increase to the lower| 
bracket employes and about 20 
per cent for those in the top levels: 
It suggests a minimum scale of $1 
an hour for hourly employes. 

Harry Leet, the union’s legisla- 
tive chairman, said the proposed 
fmcreases “would restore to Fed- 
eral workers the buying power of 
their prewar dollars . . . Adequate 

levels for Federal workers,” 
added, “will more than pay, 
their own way in reduced turn- 
ever and in the quality and effi- 
ciency of public service.” |

Ever heard of a comic strip get- § -

It happens every now and then. 

One-of the most dramatic illus-

Washington Post comic, Mary)

the action centered around her

Judge Letts deferred decision on 
what alimony is to be paid to Mar- 
garet until her attorney, S. Albert 
Mickler, can prepare a report on 
what the Navy will pay her for 
the support of her and Garrett's 
daughter, who was born in March 

Financial difficulties may result 
for Garrett from the court's deci- 
sion, it was indicated. The Navy 
had been sending Ruth as his wife, 
an allotment for years, and had 
also paid her traveling expenses, 
when she accompanied him on his 
tours of duty. 

Since the court now does not 
recognize her as ever having been 
his wife, that money may have to

In your case you leaned, psychologically. to the boss for security 
of all kinds; and your solitary thinking about his cordial benevo- 
lence during the iHness engendered rapt feeling that infiltrated his 
unconscious and sparked the impetuous flash of responsive ardor. 
That's the genesis of the problem, in which he is more victim of 
circumstances than you are: so it’s not good sense to believe or 
act as if you're on the defensive in relation to his follow-through.

DP Barriers 
To Cut Year’s 
Total to 40,000

Restrictive “gimmicks” in the

Only 40,000 refugees of an author-

As Bi i 

A 36-year-old man yesterday 
was sentenced to serve one to 
three years in jail on a charge of 
_ bigamy. 

The sentence was imposed by 
District Court Judge Richmond 
'B. Keech on‘John A. DePretis, of 
1307 12th st. nw.. who was mar- 
ried to one woman in 1941 and 
married another in 1946 without 
dissolving his first marriage, rec- 
ords showed. : 

Four men received sentences 
from Judge Keech for sex of- 
fenses, Bennie Buntone, 37, no 
given address, received a 6-month 
to 2-year sentence, and Edward 

since its vad - months Both Sides 

After the bill was signed last 
June the commission “was hopeful 
that at least 75,000 DP’s could be 
brought to this country during 
the first 12 months’ operation cf 
the program,” Carusi said. 

He said the legislation written 

the Eightieth Congress must 
either be made “far more workable 
or a ridiculously tremendous staff” 

must be hired to accomplish the !m the West Coast maritime indus-| 15-year-old boy. 

goals of the act. 

“We had hoped to bring in about 
1200 refugees a month, but so far 
500 is our monthly average,” Ca- 
rusi stated. 

The USS Marlin is scheduled to 

mitted to 2500. 

“We have bent every effort to front employers. It said their “‘de- Parkway, Silver Spring, Md., op-

less peoples but the law has us 
pretty well tied up with its innu- 
merable restrictive gimmicks on 
eligibility,” Carusi said. 

“Our basic problem,” he added. 
“is attempting to reconcile the 
perferences for DP’s expressed by 
their fine American sponsors with 
the preferential pattern set up by 

“The people of the United States 
are offering wonderful and gen- 
@rous assurances to their kinfolk 
abroad only to find that their 
preferences don't gee with the 
act. You cannot dictate to our 
people in this great humanitarian 
effort,” Carusi said. . ‘

Senator Ball (R., Minn.), severely

comment from either union or 
employer spokesmen on the com- 
mittee statement.) 

The report was prepared by John 
\F. Preston, jr., and Ralph R. Pick- 
ering, of the committee’s staff, after 
a long study of the industry. 

It was approved Monday at the 
final meeting of the committee, 
which soon 
_ The report said “political incom- 
patibility” is the most important 
cause of conflict in the industry.

He described sentiment in ref- 
ugee camps as “disappointment” 
over the restrictions imposed. 

“But there is no dissension. 
These people have suffered so 
much and so long that they have 
acquired a marvelous philosophical 
attitude. They figure nothing much 
worse can happen to them.” 

Carusi will urge the new Con-

persons camps prior to December 
22, 1945, shall be eligible to enter 
the United States. Most of the 
Jews now in camps fied from Po- 
land after that date. 

Both President Truman and 
Governor Dewey based their 
charges of “discrimination” 
against the act on this provision. 

Establishing proof that a refu- 
gee arrived in a camp before De- 
cember, 1945, is almost impossible 

Industry-wide bargaining was hot 
found to be one of the basic causes 
of conflict. 

The report said industry-wide 
bargaining in itself doesn’t cause 
either peace or wat. It may con- 
tribute to peace in one industry 
and have the opposite effect in an- 
other industry, depending on other 
factors. (Industry-wide bargaining

Washington, it was announced yes- 

Foremen have not been treated 

in many cases because the Inter- 
national Refugee Organization did 
not keep camp records until after 
that date, Carusi explained. 

“More important is the basic 
concept of the present-day refugee 
problem,” Carusi said further. “We 
are most interested now in the 
man who fears returning to Com- 
munist rule. Therefore the date, 
“~at which a DP entered a camp is. 

relatively unimportant. A new. 
date for eligibility should be predi-! 
' Seated upon the question: Is the! 
person a bona-fide refugee from 
totalitarian terrorism, whether it 
be Nazism or Communism.” 

He said he would also ask Con- 
gress to: 

1. Soften the housing and em-) 
ployment clauses which require a 
DP to prove that he has both a 
place to live and a job before he| 
may become eligible to come to 
the United States. | 

2. Increase the top limit of 205,- 
000 DPs who may be admitted. 

3. Rewrite the section on pref- 
erences to give a better break to 
eligible DPs who are “resourceful 
enough” to live outside camps. 

4. Change. the priorities now ex 
tended to farmers and refugees 
who fled from the Baltic states 
and Poland east of the Curzon line.) 
The bill now requires that not less: 
than 30 per cent of all persons ad- 
{mitted must be agricultural work- 
ers and not less than 40 per aa 
must come from the above areas. 

A coalition of Republicans and 
Democrats failed to win approval 
of these four liberalizing features 
during Senate consideration of the 
DP bill last spring. 

“And it is interesting to note 
now,” a DP Commission spokes- 
man said last night, “that some 
of the strongest demands for more 
DP’s now are coming from parts/ 
of the country whose representa- 
tives in Congress voted against a

CAB Report 

Is Censure 


The Civil Aeronautics Adminis- 
tration said yesterday the Civil 
Aeronautics Board “did not clearly 
indicate all the facts” in report- 
ing the causes of a plane crash 
which killed 52 persons near Bryce 
Canyon, Utah, October 24, 1947. 

The CAB issued a final report on 
the accident Wednesday in which 
it said the probable cause was the 
burning of gasoline which entered 
the cabin heaters of the United 
Airlines DC-6 through an air in- 
take scoop as a result of fuel tank 
overfiow. The CAB also said 
that lack of attention to detail by 


and the airline contributed to the 
accident. : 

CAA said yesterday that its rep- 
resentatives pointed out in the 
hearings on the accident that: 

1, The CAA manual for opera- 
tion of the DC-6 set forth good 
safety practices for the loading 
and use of. fuel, which CAA sai 
were ignored: and 

2. While CAA did not issue ‘a 
mandatory prohibition against the 
transfer of fuel in flight, “such was 
not deemed necessary inasmuch as 
the operating manual set forth the 
proper procedure for the feeding 
of fuel from any tank to any en-

Germany. The office was empty, 
and Smith waited. At 8 a. m., 
the first consulate employe ar- 
rived. The venerable actor tot- 

| tered to attention, brought his 

hand up in a salute and said: 
“The name is C. Aubrey Smith. 

| I'm ready, sir.” | 
At the recent United Auto 

._ Workers Union convention the 
| delegates sat at a long table 
| running the length of the room. 

One delegate at the back of the 
meeting hall tried in vain, for a 
whole day, to be recognized by 
Walter Reuther, the president. 
His voice didn’t carry that far 
... When the meeting adjourned 
the disappointed delegate went 
to a Western Union office and 
sent a telegram to Reuther stat- 
ing that he was a delegate and 
wished to be heard .. . The next 
morning, when the meeting re- 
convened, Reuther recognized 
the the rear of the 
hall, who then delivered his 

Hollywood's “Unfriendly Ten,” 
who were cited by the House 
Un-American Activities Commit- 
tee and who have brought suit 
against the film studios for ‘dis- 
charging them, requested 67 
million dollars in damages. Les- 
ter Cole, whose law suit against 
MGM was the first to be heard, 
won his case. Eddie Mannix of 
MGM is quoted as having said: 
“If it costs the industry 
$6,700,000 each to get rid of 10 
Communists, itll make ‘em 

| capitalists.”
