DORIS FLEESON:
Oversea's Americas

-- - - --

"Anybody Care About Influence On Me?"

PARIS-Shall the American men who are
developing the nation's new frontiers of
collective security have their wives and fami-
lie with them as did their pioneer fore-
fathers on the American mainland. If so,
under what conditions?
This in bureaucratic language is the
problem of the dependents. In human
terms, it is the problem of maintaining
American family life. The increasing flaw
of U.S. forces of all kinds to the Far and
Middle East, Europe and North Africa
makes it a very urgent one.
A national magazine recently called at-
tention to the difficulties, hazards and vast
expense of keeping service families together
in the mushrooming defense effort. The
"Little Americas" established in the rela-
tively easygoing days of the German occupa-
tion were described and the question raised
as to whether some sort of guns-or-butter
decision was not due the heavily burdened
U.S. taxpayer.
A wave of pessimism swept through the
forces, and theatre commanders had to con-
sider in their own minds whether they would
be ready to say that the morale factor out-
weighed the hazards and expense.
Policy regarding dependents is handled in
the Defense Department whose initial prem-
ise is that there must be as little discrepancy
as possible in the a treatment of the three
services. The wishes of the theatre com-
manders are given great weight; if possible,
they constitute the last word.
The great difficulty of course is that it
is not possible to treat everybody alike.
Some stations have housing or can acquire

it readily at a reasonable expense; at
others, it is prohibitive in cost or un-
available. The regulars of the services,
like the State Department's foreign serv-
ice, know this; they expect to alternate
between the fat and the lean, figuring that
in a whole career they will attain the
general average.
But these regulars are being greatly aug-
mented by Reserves, National Guard and
draftees. Neither they nor their womenfolk
have the career service philosophy, condi-
tioning, or that clan feeling which comforts
the regulars.
The Army has plans to rotate 12 divisions
overseas, keeping only four at home at any
one time. This involves the separation of
families three years out of four unless the
present dependent policy is maintainel. It
is a big responsibility to decide to change it.
Unhesitatingly, other things being equal.
U.S. commanders prefer to let the men have
their dependents with them.
General Ridgway, for example, has re-
opened dependent tfavel to Japan. He tries
to equalize the Korean sacrifice by frequent
shifts within his command.
But the 43rd division, going to Europe,
will not be allowed dependents. And they
may find forces there, which antedate the
change in the defense climate, quite plush-
ly established.
The people involved must be told the truth
-that new hazards now exist; that, with the
need for guns, planes, bases, ships, the frills
must go. It is a new problem and a new kind
of service for Americans but there is no rea-
son to suppose the women can't take it.

MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH ALSOP
EDITOR'S NOTE: Joseph Alsop, has written
an open letter to Sen. Pat McCarran (D., Nev.)
requesting that he be given an opportunity to
refute the recent testimony by Louis Budenz be-
fore the McCarran Sub-committee on Internal
Security.
Mr. Alsop said that he based his request on
the fact that the testimony involved certain
events which took place while he was in China
andhabout which he had first-hand information.
The text of the letter follows:
EAR SENATOR McCARRAN:
Having listened this morning to the tes-
timony of Louis Budenz, I am moved to take
a step which I had hoped to avoid. In my
opinion, a newspaperman can make no
greater mistake than to appear in any pub-
lic role. But during the war in China, I took
part in certain events which prove that Bu-
denz has lied to your Sub-Committee on In-
ternal Security.
In these circumstances, therefore, in
simple justice to the other persons in-
volved in those events, who have been
falsely accused by Budenz, I feel forced
to request the opportunity to offer my
testimony in refutation of his.
Besides a tissue of half truths and a far-
rage of misrepresentation, Budenz has told
three demonstrable lies. He has said that at
the time of HezIry A. Wallace's mission to
China in 1944, the State Department offi-
cial, John Carter Vincent, was a "member
of the Communist Party." He has asserted
that Vincent was "relied" on by the Com-
munist Party leadership to "guide" Wallace
along the path of the party line. And he has
stated that the Communist leaders were
"satisfied" with the results of Vincent's al-
leged work as Wallace's guide.

W ASHINGTON-George Allen, the former
White House jester, is now about the
closest man to General Eisenhower. It was
Allen who acted as liaison between Truman
and Eisenhower to make sure Ike didn't get
into the race as a Democrat in 1948.
Today, Allen, though a Mississippi
Democrat, says that Ike is sure to run as
a Republican,
Talking to a friend recently, Allen pre-
dicted:
"What Ike will do will be exactly what
Roosevelt did at Chicago in 1932. He'll hop
on a plane and fly straight to the conven-
tion."
"How's he going to fly from Paris to Chi.
cago when he's under orders from his com-
mander-in-chief to do a job in Paris?" ask.
ed the friend.
"Don't be foolish," shot back the former
White House jester, "what's the commander-
in-chief going to do about it?"

-CENSORSHIP-
INSIDE FACT about the President's long
press conference lecture about protecting
U.S. secrets was that his immediate advisers
didn't want him to make it. They knew
public reaction would be bad.
However, the Defense Department, Cen-
tral Intelligence and others in charge of
military secrets urged the President not
only to issue his censorship order but back
it up-in part to keep the military from
setting U.S. policy._
Time after time, high generals or admirals
have barged in on civilian policy or dis-
closed secrets which caused serious damage.
Most important was the release of the
Smythe report on Atomic Energy by Gen-
eral Leslie Groves. A few hours after the re-
port was sent to several thousand news-
papers, horrified scientists protested to the
army that the report contained vital secrets
At The State.. ..
DAVID AND BATHSHEBA with Gregory
Peck and Susan Hayward.
THE PSYCHOLOGY of the "advanced"
price is liable to make this picture a
popular favorite. Few will want to publicize
the fact that they have been so egregiously
taken in, and consequently hosts of be
nighted moviegoers will come to silently
share a sucker's shame.
About the only enjoyment this rendering
of the tale of David and his adultery with
Bathsheba offers is a dialogue of double
entendres that lack only the broad wink
to be typical burlesque fair. If they were
not delivered with a hypocritical priety,
the result might be just a particularly un-
subtle archness, instead of the rather dis-
tasteful innuendo it turns out to be.
Besides trying to wring all the superficial
suggestiveness out of the situation, the pro-
ducers have tried to graft a Hay's Office
version of 20th Century morality and ethics

by which an astute scientist could piece to-
gether the know-how for making the a-
bomb. Hurriedly, Groves demanded that the
report be recalled.
"That," replied a member of his staff,
"would be like trying to put an egg back
into a chicken."
Newsmen, not being technicians, had no
way of knowing the significance of the
Smythe report's complicated wording.
Another military boner which played into
Moscow's hands was the statement by Gen-
eral Orvil Anderson, commander of the Air
War College at Montgomery, Ala., that the
United States wanted a preventative war.
It was necessary for the Air Force to relieve
Gen. Anderson in order to demonstrate this
was not our real foreign policy.
NOTE-On Mr. Truman's desk this sum-
mer was one of our newest ,secret weapons,
a guided missile. Proudly he demonstrated
it to many callers, told aboutits accuracy
against enemy planes. No restriction of se-
crecy was placed upon those with whom he
talked.

-INCOME TAX PROBE-
ALERT SENATOR Richard Nixon of Cali-
fornia had a lot to do, backstage, with
the cleanup of the income tax mess in San
Francisco.
Some time ago he received letters from
those close to the federal grand jury which
was trying to investigate the long-rumored
internal revenue scandal but which was
suddenly called off by U.S. Judge Lewis
E. Goodman.
At ,that time, young Assistant U.S. At-
torney Charles O'Gara was endeavoring to
present evidence of income tax irregulari-
ties to the grand jury. But suddenly the
probe was stopped by Judge Goodman, who,
incidentally, had been appointed to the
bench on the recommendation of ex-Senator
Sheridan Downey. Collector of Internal Reve.
nue Smythe, ┬░now under investigation, was
Downey's campaign manager.
To remedy the situation, Senator Nixo
introduced a bill which, if passed, will per-
mit grand juries to hire counsel of their own
and dig into a smelly situation-regardless
of whether the U.S. attorney or the Judge
gives the green light.
Nixon also phoned the Justice Depart-
ment in Washington to inquire about
young O'Gara, the Assistant U.S. Attor-
ney who was pushing the tax probe.
"He's a psycopath," was the reply.
In the end, 'however, O'Gara won out. He
was brought to Washington as a witness be-
for Senator Williams' income tax committee,
while many of the tax collectors in San
Francisco he was gunning for have now
been removed.

EX-SECRETARY OF WAR Robert Patter-
son has notified the Senate Judiciary
Committee that he has withdrawn his en-
dorsement of Miss Frieda Hennock to be a
U.S. Judge. Since Patterson once sat on the
U.S. Court of Appeals, his word counts heav-
ily with the senators. He informed them that
when he originally endorsed Miss Hennock,
he had not realized all the facts now brought
out by the New York Bar Association ... .

AS IT HAPPENS, I was in China at the
time of the Wallace visit about which
Budenz has testified so freely. I was then
serving as a member of the 14th Air Force
staff and personal advisor to Maj. Gen. C. L.
Chennault. When Wallace reached Kun-
ming, where our headquarters were situated,
Gen. Chennault assigned me to act as the
Vice President's escort and sub-host during
his visit. Wallace and Vincent were the
General's guests at his house, where I also
lived, and I was almost continuously with
them both until they left China.
Mre particularly, I was with Wallace
and Vincent when they discussed the grave
crisis then going on in China, and the
American policy that should be adopted
towards it. I was not only present-I was
at the typewriter-during the drafting of
the Wallace cable to President Roosevelt,
advising the removal of Gen. Joseph W.
Stilwell from command in China and his
replacement by Gen. Albert C. Wedemey-
er. Every detail of that episode refutes
Budenz's testimony concerning Vincent in
particular and the Wallace mission in gen-
eral. I cannot attempt to make a full case
against Budenz in the short space of this
letter. That is what I hope to do in sworn
testimony, but I should like at least to
illustrate briefly. Budenz testified this
morning that the Communist Party lead
ers were not displeased by the suggestion
of Gen. Wedemeyer as China Theater
Commander, but were "very much opposed
to Gen. Chennault (and) didn't want him
in the picture at all." The sum of Budenz's
testimony was that if the Wallace cable
to President Roosevelt had proposed Chen-
nault as China Theater Commander, it
would then have been indisputably anti-
Communist.
In point of fact, the Wallace cable came
very close to doing precisely that. When Wal-
lace had decided, with Vincent's concur-
rence, that Stilwell ought not to continue in
command in China, he then stated that he
would like to suggest Gen. Chennault as
Stilwell's replacement. Again, Vincent in-
dicated that he concurred. When my adviceI
was asked, however, I was in the em-
barrassing situation of having to argue, for
reasons which I shall be glad to explain to
your committee, that the suggestion of Gen.
Chennault would be unwise. It was only then
that the decision was taken to put forward
the name of Gen. Wedemeyer.
* * *
ESIDES THIS, in my judgment, specific
proof of Budenz's falsehood, there is the
more general and decisive proof, around
which I noted both Budenz and your sub-
committee counsel rather carefully skirted
this morning. The non-Communist character
of the Wallace cable is chiefly shown, not by
the recommendation of Gen. Wedemeyer,
but by the proposal to remove Gen. Stilweg
from command. When that cable was writ-
ten, Gen. Stilwell was already working to
arm the Chinese Communists, while denying
all aid to Chiang Kai-shek's hard-pressed
anrmies in China. Had Stilwell continued in
command in China, the Chinese Commun-
ists would surely have been able to destroy
the Generalissimo before the end of the war.
And when Stilwell was finally dismissed from
command, the war-time hopes of the Chinese
Communists fell finally and completely to
the ground.
In the face of these facts which I shall
gladly prove to your committee, Budenz
has the bare-faced audacity to claim that
Wallace's proposal to dismiss Stilwell was
pro-Communist, and was even welcomed
by the Communist Party leadership. It is
hard to know which is more shocking--
Budenz's free and easy way with the repu-
tations of American citizens, or his fan-

Turkey Farm . . . .
To the Editor:
THANKSGVING will soon be
with us and, according to un-
o f f i c i a 1 estimates, 30,000,000'
turkeys will be slaughtered before
this festive occasion arrives.
S h o u l d w e , indiscriminately
slaughter turkeys without regard
to their fitness for continued exist-
ence? We say no!
Why not give a slaughter de-
ferment test for all turkeys pre-
sently being exhibited at state and
county fairs. Those turkeys not
passing the test may also be de-
ferred on the basis of blue rib-
bons they have won during the
past year. While a satisfactory
score on such an examination
would be beneficial to the turkey,
it will not guarantee deferment,
since exemption can only rest up-
on the final decision of each local
slaughter house.
Upon receipt of his notice for
slaughter, a turkey may ask for
deferment until the end of the
mating season. He may apply for
consideration for reclassification
by his local slaughter house on the
basis of county or state fair status
and Turkey Qualification Test
Score. If his local slaughter house
refuses to reclassify him, he should
immediately appeal to his State
Bureau of Turkey Affairs.
If this appeal is refused, the
turkey must i'eport for slaughter
within one month after notifica-
tion-unless, of curse, he is a
conscientious turkey. Failure to
report for slaughter will be pun-
ishable by death. This is to guard
against "foul" play,.

Music Review.. ..
To the Editor:
WOULD like to address a few
comments to your music critic.
My dear Miss Goss, just because
you thought that Miss d los An-
geles is a mezzo-soprano instead
of a full fledged soprano is no rea-
son for you to tell the readers of
this paper. It had nothing to do
with the concert, and it should not
have taken up newspaper space.
I can enjoy a program of vocal
music without having the slightest
idea of the range of the perform-
er. Also, you had no reason for'
saying that Miss de los Angeles'
three Schumann songs were a dis-
appointment. Just because she is
from a Spanish background you
found it necessary to challenge
her German lieder. If her name
was Victoria von Schimmel, I am
sure you would have knocked down
her French and Spanish interpre-
tations, and just praised the
"authority and deftness" of her
German group. You should not let
names interfere with your judg-
ments.
You also did not like the accom-
panist because he distracted from
the recital. Apparently you are in
favor of a cappella singing. The
accompanist's name was on the
program and I went to hear him
at the coicert too, you know. I
enjoy a piano background, and I
respect a player who follows his
crescendos and his decrescendos.
I certainly don't want a faint drib-
bling on the keyboard behind the
vocal line of the singer.
Lastly, you did not like the idea
