endorsement by Hollywood of thet
principles of conscientious objec-
tion.)t
A Countess From Hong Kong1
(at the Vth Forum) was both
painful and rewarding for me be-'
cause of my long-standing worshipj
of the comedy of Charlie Chaplin.
The cutting and technical aspects
of the film are handled in a man-
ner that can only be termed atro-
cious and made the effort seemt
almost amateurish. There was no
mistaking that the director was
in charge for the first time.
But there was also no mistaking
who the director was, and teat he
is genius. The comedy situation in
the film is minimal-a girl turns
up in, the room of a man whose
reputation is at stake, they fall
in love, find a way to beat the,
system and get married. Sophia
Loren and Marlon Brando both,
respond beautifully to Chaplin's
master touch. With facial expres-
sions, slight gestures, a dash across
the bedroom floor, Loren and
Brando recreate the s i1 e n t,
straightfaced Chaplin at his finest.-
But the comic genius of Chaplin
is, and the viewer will allow for
the director's technical shortcom-
ings and sentimentality (or trans-,
late them into feelings of nostal-
gia), then Countess offers the best
cinema in town.

Furthermore, the senator ques-
tioned the strategic importance ofI
Vietnam to America's balance of
power in Asia. Vietnam, he said,
"was never included in the per-
imeter of American defense when
that term and that conception
was being discussed in this coun-
try in the period after the end of
the Second World War. Even those
men who specialized in China and
were concerned about the expan-
sion of China never really said
that Vietnam was a test area in
which China has to be held back."
"It was generally believed that
Vietnam had maintained through
the centuries a relatively inde-
pendent position against the Chi-
nese and that if expansionism was
to take place, it was more likely
to be in other areas, such as Mon-
golia, where the Chinese have some
historic claims or possibly along
the border with India."
"It was never really accepted,"
he continued. "First, that China
was a real threat to Vietnam and,
second, that if she were, the con-
tainment of China eventually
would depend on what was done
in Vietnam, as some of the de-
fenders of the present policy con-
tend."
Regarding Vietnam's neighbor,
Thailand, which has already been
provided with some 40,000 Ameri-
can "advisers," McCarthy was
more optimistic. "I don't think
we're getting into quite the same
difficulty as in Vietnam," he said.
"The possibility of internal dis-
sention, or of a civil war similar
to what we have in Vietnam does

not exist in that country. Also,
we don't have the kind of politi-
cal division as we do in Vietnam."
The senator commented briefly
on the recent disclosures of Cen-
tral Intelligence Agency interven-t
tion in the affairs of private orga-
nizations. McCarthy has been a'
vigorous foe of CIA immunity
from any reasonable congressional
surveillance, and has been trying
for several years to expand the
Senate "watchdog" committee that
is composed of members of the
Senate Armed Services Committee
and the Defense subcommittee of
the Appropriations. Last July, his
efforts to include three members of
the Foreign Relations Committee
on the watchdog group, which is
headed by Sen. Richard RussellE
(D-Ga), was effectively blocked
when the matter was referred to
the Armed Services Committee also
headed by Russell. But McCarthy
met with partial success after the
controversy earlier this year.

but also better supervision of it
in the area which is properly its
own area-gathering information
from espionage,"
McCarthy tried last July to in-
clude the 'FBI under the purview
of a congressional committee, but
was forced to drop this provision.
"To try to carry on the floor
of the Senate a case against the
CIA was difficult enough, but if
we added to that a case against
the FBI, it became almost too
much to expect. So we were will-
ing to settle for something short
of a total program, which we still
think necessary. If the FBI is in-
volved in foreign operations, cer-
tainly the Foreign Relations Com-
mittee ought to know about it."
The interview ended with the
inevitable question about McCar-
thy's appraisal of his former col-
league in the Senate, Vice-Presi-
dent Hubert Humphrey.
"Well, I think that the only is-
sue that people would say that
