A TERRIFIC EXPLOSION can be expected
in the UN very shortly when Yugoslavia
catapults itself into the midst of the cleav-
age between the United States and Soviet,
With the Ukraine's term as a non-per-1
manent member of the security council ex-
piring at the end of the year, an election
will be held to choose an Eastern European
successor. Russia is supporting satellite
Czechoslovakia for the past. But, to Rus-
sia's high irritation, Yugoslavia has an-
nounced her candidacy and will be strong-
lybacked by the United States. One of
the hottest debates in UN history is f or-
seen when the issue comes before the
At the core of the projected fight lies the
United States' support of Premier Marshall
Tito in his rebellion against Joseph Stalin.
Through his defiance of the Soviet lead-
er Tito has become a powerful force in
weakening the whole front of Moscow-
bossed Communism. Russia wants a deep
security belt against the West and Tito's
Yugoslavia effectively blocks the forma-
tion of this belt.
The United States could ask for nothing
better. Seizing its opportunity, this country
has come to the Yugoslav Premier's aid,
supplying him with over $20 million in loans
and backing him in his bid for a UN seat.
Our action puts Stalin in a serious di-
lemma. There is little he can do to thwart
Tito short of pittingthe Red Army against
Yugoslavia's 500,000 troops. And if the
Soviet leader does this, he would risk in-
tervention from the West in a form which
could conceivably lead to full-scale war.
Because Stalin isn't ready to risk touch-
ing off a major calamity, he finds him-
Through supporting Tito, economically
and in the UN, the United States has dis-
covered an excellent means of aiding in the
diruption of the Kremlin's plans for im-
perialism. This country has found a vulner-
able spot in the vanguard of Soviet Com-
inunism and ought to make the best of it.

THE FIGHT to block confirmation of Le-
land Olds to the Federal Power Commis-
sion is just a pinprick to things like the
steel strike and the atom bomb, but it sym-
bolizes the clash of two worlds. . . . Olds
is the man who made your and my gas elec-
tic bills cheaper.He's been the sparkplug
on the Commission for 10 years. . . . And
the great utilities are gunning for him. Why?
Because in late years utilities and mo-
nopolists have opened a new line of at-
tack-exemption from control. With "con-
trol" accepted in theory, there have been
fights to exempt industry after industry,
to cut the railroads and insurance com-
panies loose from the anti-trust laws, to
pass the tidelands oil-exemption bill, to
take atomic energy from the people, and
now the bill to exempt big gas producers
from the Federal Power Commission. Olds
is on trial before the Senate on the charge
of having defended the people....
If Olds and what he stands for are re-
jected, we feel in our very bones that the
utilities will eventually rue the day. This
sort of thing can well lead to public owner-
ship of all basic natural resources.

Peron' s Gag Law
PRESIDENT PERON'S Argentine gag law
is the worst of his many offenses against
the freedom of the press and in violation of
the commitments his government made in)
becoming one of the United Nations. Now if
any editor "offends the dignity" of any pub-
lic official he may be sentenced to jail for
two months to a year, and truth is no de-
In the Charter of the United Nations,
Argentina pledged itself to encourage and
promote "respect for the fundamental
freedoms for all."' Freedom of the press
is a fundamental freedom, which the Ar-
gentine government, duty-bound to sup-
port, is trampling... .
Argentina's suppression of the press de-
serves the most unequivocal rebuke by the
United Nations. A special obligation to con-
trast the Peron government's performance
with its promises rests on the United States,
which may recall without pride that it spon-
sored the admission of this pledge-breaking1

WASHINGTON - When good old Clyde
Hoey, the swallow-tailed senator from
North Carolina, announced there would be
no more hearings on General Vaughan, John
Maragon and the five-percenters, it didn't
surprise anybody on the inside.
For insiders have known how much
pressure has been exerted by the White
House to shut the investigation up.
One month ago it was announced that
public hearings would be suspended in order
to give the committee staff a chance to do
more investigating, also to give committee
counsel Rogers a two-week vacation. Since
then, however, White House pressure has
been terrific with even staff investigators
threatened with loss of government pen-
Since then also some sensational leads
have been glossed over by committee in-
vestigators or carefully stowed away in
One of the most interesting figures whom
Senator Hoey and his staff have turned
their back on is David A. Bennett, the per-
fume manufacturer, who sent seven deep
freezes to General Vaughan, Mrs. Truman
and other bigwigs at about the time
Vaughans' friend, John Maragon, was trying
to smuggle Bennett's perfume into the Unit-
ed States disguised as champagne for the
YACHTS AND DEEP FREEZES
HERE ARE SOME other interesting
things about Mr. Bennett which the
public doesn't know, and most of the record
is in government files where any Senate in-
vestigator could easily dig it out.
For instance, Mr. Bennett, at the time'
he was giving away deep freezes, acquired
four luxury yachts, three of them from the
Four yachts are a lot for any one man
to have. However, deep-freeze-giver Bennett
wasn't satisfied with four yachts and wanted
to buy another.
Bennett already had the following luxury
yachts: "Carnan," 600 horsepower, 121 foot.
221 tons; "Valerie V," 84 foot, 124 tons;
"Caroline," 45 foot, 24 tons; "Nedra B," 111
foot, 101 tons. All these, except the "Valerie
V," were purchased direct from the Mari-
time Commission. And when the Maritime
Commission was asked to disclose who else
bid on the vessels, and how much was bid,
the information was refused.
The yachts were used for some of the
famed Truman-Vaughan poker parties,
and this long-time intimacy between the
President of the United States and the
President of the Verley Perfume Company
may be why Maragon felt that he could
with impunity label his perfume as con-
signed to the White House and try to
smuggle it through U.S. customs.
At that time-around 1945-one Bennett
yacht was moored on the Potomac, another
at Saugatuck, Mich., and another in Florida.
Since then-perhaps because he has been
less active in lobbying-Bennett has dis-
posed of three yachts, but still keeps the

MR. SOFT TOUCH, with Glenn Ford-
and Evelyn Keyes, for the soft-headed.
AFTER A CERTAIN number of movies,
Hollywood can reach the point of dimin-
ishing returns. And they've passed that point
in capitalizing on the tough-guy possibilities
of Glenn Ford's small eyes and protruding
For Ford's facial peculiarities have been
trusted to put over his characterization
of the soft-hearted boy who turns to
crime to avenge wrong-doing, Ford re-
signedly goes through the stereotyped plot
and dialogue; unfortunately, the same can
be said for Miss Keyes, the prudent social-
worker who sets about to put Ford on the
right path. Never noted for her great dra-
matic talents, she outdoes her previous
amateurishness in "Mr. Soft Touch."
Redeeming features to the film are the
supporting players, John Ireland, as the sar-
donic columnist; Beulah Bondi and Percy
Kilbride, as characters-about-the-settlement
house; and a bevy of humorous policemen.
The various characters spend the film
interacting and doing their darnedest to
bring the movie to an exciting climax, in
speed of action if in nothing else.
But just about the time the climax should
be reached, the plot harks back to a repeti-
tion of the opening action which gives one
to think 'this is where I came in.'
Then the frenzied activity starts again and
Ford quietly achieves Miss Keyes, but loses
the money he stole by pouring'it into a new
settlement house although not before the
audience has been informed via Christmas
carols, that it was a thoroughly moral,
therefore, good, film.

MATTER OF FACT
by JOSEPH ALSOP
W ASHINGTON-A good rousing row is al-
ways good rousing fun, but it is a bit
dangerous to forget that serious issues may
be involved. Despite the distracting drama
of hole-and-corner passing out of confi-
dential documents, serious issues are in-
volved in the current tempest in the Navy.
Captain Crommelin's blast against serv-
ice unification and its various sequels are
not merely episodes in the struggle be-
tween the Navy and the Air Force. They
are also symptoms of a bitter split within
the Navy itself, between the sea officers,
led by the Chief of Naval Operations, Ad-
miral Louis Denfeld, and the naval avia-
tors, led by the Pacific Fleet Commander,
Admiral A. W. Radford.
In war time, the naval aviators met only
the inferior Japanese Air Force, and from
this experience conceived an exceedingly du-
bious theory of the potentialities of naval
aviation in land warfare. Postwar, the naval
aviators for a time dominated naval policv.
To put it bluntly, their plans for extensive
encroachment on the functions of the land-
baser Air Force offered the best chance of
building the vast naval establishment that
all admirals, battleship or other, instinctive-
ly desire. Thus all admirals supported the
The passage of the service unification bill,
and the subsequent brilliant work of General
of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower, had the
effect of forcing the Navy back into its pri-
mary mission. The job of controlling the seas
looked almost big enough to the sea officers
like Admiral Denfeld, who is himself a sub-
mariner. But the resulting limitation of
their expansive plans enraged the nave:
aviators like Admiral Radford, to the point
of the rather open insubordination that has
now been displayed.
The fury of the naval aviators has been
directed, not only against the President
and Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson,
but also against Admiral Denfeld and the
other sea officers like him. The thought
seems to be that Admiral Denfeld has
been criminally weak to accept the fact
that the Navy cannot make its policies
and develop its strength in total inde-
pendence, and even in defiance, of both
the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the United
States Government. And the motive of
the recent outbursts has been as much to
embarrass Admiral Denfeld as to build a
fire under Secretary Johnson.
It must be considered a symptom of shock-
ingly low morale, if the requirement that the
Navy adapt itself to a national strategic plan
can send so many of its officers off the
If morale is in question, it surely cannot
be vastly improved by exhibitions of fairly
open insubordination by high officers in
responsible positions. And open attacks on
the more cooperative naval officers like Ad-
miral Denfeld and Admiral Forrest Sherman
(who was exiled to the Mediterranean for his
part in the unification bill) cannot help
morale much either. In short, the drama is
pleasing, but the facts are not.
