The goal of our policy should be the res-

prior to the invasion of South Korea in
June. Certainly no one wants an unlimited
continuance of hostilities, and it would be
equally silly to advocate permanent Ameri-
can military occupation of the Korean pen-
insula. By 'far, one of the worst moves we
could make would be to support the evacu-
ation of all foreign troops. This would con-
stitute a political suicide, wiping out all of
the military gains that we have won in
the past months. It, would be a complete
genuflection to Moscow.
The policies of both Truman and Mac-
Arthur could lead to a solution of our
problem in Korea by division at the 38th
parallel. However both plans include some
shortcomings. We should take the wisest
points of each and incorporate them into
a sipgle policy instead of holding out
rigidly for either one man or the other.
This best solution to the Great Debate is
a compromise, not because a compromise is
a nice way to solve a problem, but because
it is the surest way available to maintain
American security all over the world.

Hope ful s
WASHINGTON-A politically intense week
has just ended here which saw the Mac-
Arthur affair fortuitously coincide with the
annual convention of the American Society
of Newspaper Editors.
The editors normally bring out a great
parade of ambitious politicos who naturally
seize the opportunity to win friends and in-
fluence newspapermen from the 48 states.
Among Republicans the spotlight fell prin-
cipally on Senator Taft and General Mac-
Arthur; Democrats who got the nod were
Senators Douglas, Kefauver and Fulbright.
It seemed to many attentive observers
that the two men in the collection who
wanted most to be President and were
working at it hardest were Senators Taft
and Kefauver. They were therefore in-
clined to rate their chances as very bright
on the theory that while many candidates
for President are called, the few chosen
are those who get out and fight for it.
The late Senator Vandenberg was one
who held that men are never drafted for the
Presidency.He was always reluctant to ad-
mit White House aspirations and never al-
lowed his friends really to build a boom for
him; his own history thereafter went far to
prove his point.
With all his matchless publicity, General
MacArthur is approaching the Presidency in
this same role of the reluctant dragon. It is
a great relief to Senator Taft and others
who share the MacArthur views; it will also
tend to discourage the professionals who
like to do their bargaining well in advance
and no nonsense.
It so happened that the nation's editors
got a revealing glimpse of Douglas MacAr-
thur, the septuagenarian who hoards his
strength for major appearances and letsI
others adjust their routines to his. The Gen-
eralwas to have dropped in on the editors
following his capitol speech and public re-
ception on the Mall; President Truman can-
celed his own engagement with the editors
to avoid any conflict with this arrangement.
But the General found the long afternoon
nap of his Tokyo schedule an imperative so
compelling that the editors had to sit and
wait for him until well beyond the dinner
hour. That he was weary was not remark-
able; much younger men would have been.
That he took his 20 minutes of the editors'
time at their inconvenience was interesting.
Senators Taft and Douglas debated for-
eign policy for the concluding editors' din-4
ner. The Senator from Ohio, greatly in ear-
nest, displayed a certain caution about the
most controversial MacArthur views; he ve-
hemently foreswore the "war party" accu-
sations of Democrats and freely attributed
the world's ills to Mr. Truman. While he
was meeting the specifications of a cam-
paign speech, Senator Douglas with much
good humor fenced with him on the issues.
Afterward, it was Senator Douglas who
went swiftly to the senior Senator and held
out his hand. Senato'r Douglas had been
urged to "get tough" with Mister Republican
but it is not in accord with the role he wants
to play. He is happy to be a Senator and his
actions bear out his further insistence that
he is also content to be only that.
He can practically count on it that the
politicians will let him unless and until
he shows signs that he is in business with
his objective, victory in 1952.
The handsome Kefauvers, very much in
demand, were tirelessly polite and agreeable
to his large public. They offer a commodity
not much in evidence lately in the political

scene-youth, and with it a certain gusto
and pleasure in the contest for popular fa-
vor. It has been a long time since Washing-
ton has seen a serious candidate for Presi-
dent and his wife gaily swinging around the
dance floor and having a wonderful time.

TEHERAN-In the confusion of the sit4a-
tion here only one point is clear: This
crisis in Iran can quite conceivably spread
and grow more violent until a general ex-
plosion brings ,.down the whole shaky Iran-
ian structure. The rumored intention of the
Shah to fly to Paris for an appendicitis op-
eration threatens to remove the last ele-
ment of stability. No one can see ahead,
even as far as twenty-four hours.
As some time must go by between the
writing of these words and their publica-
tion, this reporter will prudently avoid of-
fering any forecasts. It may be worth try.
ing to indicate, however, how affairs here
have reached this stage, where the small-
est danger is an appalling setback for the
West, and a chain reaction leading to a
third world war cannot be absolutely ex-
What stands out, first of all, is the great
Middle Eastern policy. The stakes in the
astuteness the Kremlin has shown in its
game were vast from the start, for the mere
denial to the Western alliance of the Mid-
dle Eastern oil resource was (and is) enough
to turn the world balance of power upside
down. In view of the weakness and corrup-
tion of the Iranian and other Middle East-
ern governments, in view of their utter in=-
ability to resist a direct application of Rus-
sian strength, the temptation must have
been very great to plan to use naked force
in this region.
Instead, at the very moment when the use
of force became an element in the Kremlin
program, and the Korean affair was actually
in preparation, the Kremlin drastically
shifted its emphasis in the Middle East. A
new tone of sweet amiability in Moscow lull-
ed the incredibly feckless Iranian ruling
group. It is not too much to say that if the
Iranian politicians had not half-forgotten
the menace on their northern border, they
would probably not have challenged their
potential Western protectors by voting the
oil nationalization bill.
BY TEMPORARY amiability, in other
words, the masters of the Kremlin al-
lowed three processes to work for them.
These processes were the progressive decay
of Iran's internal situation; the mounting
irritation at the intransigence of the British
and their oil company, and the increasing
disappointment in Iran with the incompe-
tence and downright inattentiveness of Am-
eriln policy.
Oil nationalization was therefore voted,
immediately embroiling the already dis-
tracted and enfeebled Iranian govern-
ment in an open conflict with the British
and a poorly concealed difference with the
United States. This reporter reached Te-
heran when every leading Iranian was
still flushed with the happy afterglow of
successful self-assertion. There was no
fear then that the British would move
troops, that the Russians would intervene,
or that the oil nationalization coup would

THE TUDEH organization was at once
ordered into action, first in the southern
oil fields and then all over the country, thus
seizing the oil issue from the Iranian na=
tionalists, plunging the whole nation into
acute crisis, undermining the remaining au-
thority of the government, and openly in-
viting a landing by British forces to protect
the staff and property of the Anglo-Iranian
Oil Company. The Soviets now obviously
have the usual minor and major objectives.
The lesser objective is provoking the British
landing, which will give the Kremlin the ex-
cuse to invade northern Iran. But there is
equally the hope that general disintegration
will puce all of Iran in the power of the
Tudeh and the Kremlin.
At this writing, with the Shah's final
decision uncertain and the outcome of the
efforts to restore order even more doubtful,
it is really possible for almost anything
to happen. At the same time, it must be
said that the present crisis wears the guise
of a preliminary test of strength. If the
army remains loyal and dependable, which
will of course partly depend on the, Shah's
final action, the immediate crisis is likely
to be got through somehow.
On the other hand, both the Iranians and
ourselves have now had a grim warning. The
country needs a strong government. The
government must proceed with all haste to
take the strongest measures to remedy Iran's
internal evils and remove the causes of in-
stability. In order to get a strong govern-
ment with a strong program, a powerful,
unified application of American and British
influence, sustained, at least for a while by
generous American financial aid, are the
absolute essentials. We have let things go so
long that it is going to be incredibly diffi-
cult to save the Western world's Middle
Eastern bacon, but this is the only chance.

Psi Upsilon Fraternity: The Sub-
Committee on Discipline heard the
statements of the president and treas-
urer of Psi Upsilon fraternity and is
of the opinion that the fraternity has
made a "good faith" effort to py the
full amount of the $2,000 which it was
fined in November, 1950.
In view of the fact that some of the
Psi Upsilon members have since that
time left this campus and the remain-
ing number who are able to share the
responsibility of this obligation has
grown quite small, it is felt that the
fraternity has done all that it can be
reasonably expected to do toward pay-
ing the amount.
The Committee now orders that the
amount of the fine be reduced to $1,000
and that any amount over that which
has already been paid be refunded to
the fraternity.

BsSpeech & the U.S.

WITH THE BIG POWERS engaged in a
hot armaments race, the reasons why
Britain's former Minister of Labor, Aneurin
Bevan resigned his position are pertinent to
the present war economy policy of the U.S.
The crux of Bevan's speech was his re-
cognition of the dangers of turning over
"the complicated machinery of modern in-
dustry to war preparation too quickly."
Taking an indirect slap at the U.S., Bevan
pointed out that campaigns for arms produc-
tion are accompanied by campaigns of "in-
tolerance, hatred, and witch hunting." This
statement needs no further expansion when
one looks at the American system of loy-
alty boards and un-American Activities
Bevan rapped Parliament further for cre-
ating an arms economy which will under-
mine social legislation in Britain and eventu-

ally, as inflation increases, lower the stand-
ard of living all over the world.
This condition of gradually squeezing out
social legislation to make room for arms pro-
duction in Britain which Bevan fears, can
be extended to the United States' present,
budget. This budget calls for a staggering
58 percent of the budget to be spent for
military purposes while only 17 percent will
be allocated for domestic needs.
As further example of the gradual sell-
ing out of the Socialist party's principals
to the war hysteria, Bevan pointed to the
reduction of the National Insurance Fund
and Health Service budget.
Here another American parallel exists in
the fate of the National Health Insurance,
bill. This bill which was so enthusiastically
pushed as a liberal plank in the Democratic
platform has been quietly pigeonholed as one
of the social measures to be dropped in favor
