Sequel to Assassination'

"You Wouldn't Mind Being Investigated, Would You?"


Satire, by its very nature, can easily be
mistaken. Often, however, it is the only
means, or the most effective means, by
which a condition may be pointed out or a
hypocrisy bared.
Yesterday, we ran a piece in these col-
SHORN OF THE commercial and psycho-
logical qualifications the definitive his-
torians would attach to the Flying Enter-

It is Don Quixote and the windmills; it is

Reduced to its moral essentials Carl-
sen's position is enviable. Few of us are
confronted by so clear a juxtaposition of
evil and good, black and white, today.
Still fewer are granted the privilege of
personally allying ourselves with the white
and attacking the black.
Life presents us with a succession of
choice situations-but generally between
shades of gray. That we should hang upon
the exploits of this man on a ship is in a
sense a wistful protest against the cloudiness
of the choices we face daily.

umns entitled "I Killed the President." It
was devised by Rich Thomas, and was in-'
tended to show, as indicated in the editor's
note, the monstrosity of some magazine
fiction on this side of the ocean.
Nothing further was meant. The reaction,
however, which met us-by telephone and
letter-yesterday afternoon, was of such a
curious nature that it deserves to be men-
tioned in its own right. A total of perhaps
25 phone calls asked if the source was really
true. A certain number of others, perhaps
five, vociferously claimed that the article
was the sturdiest piece of libel against the
Soviet Union ever to appear in the pages of
The Daily. One gentleman, who believed
the story to have actually appeared in a
Russian magazine, explained that Americans
should take warning.
It is personally repugnant to me to have
to explain the point of a satire. But since
such confusion evidentally exists, it might
be well to rephrase the issue in ordinary
language. It is simply this: scare fiction
can do nothing but harm. Orientation of
hatred is an extremely drastic propaganda
measure, and one which should never be
employed lightly. Those examples of scare
fiction already in print (and we may pre-
sume, in the growing number yet to come),
flaunt this basic condition in an appalling

Washington Merry-Go-Round


-~- I

WASHINGTON-Today that part of the
American people which pays income tax-
es in quarterly installments, will file final
tax estimates for 1951-plus payments.
Most people gripe at filing taxes, and
this time their gripe will be legitimate.
Never before has our tax collecting sys-
tem become so steeped in fraud and fa-
voritism. If it continues, the United States
could follow the road of France, Germany
and Italy where unfair taxes and crook-
ed collections have given those countries
a boost on the road toward Communism.
To put a road-block on that road in this
country, this columnist herewith suggests
five means of preventing fraud in the future.
If you are against unfair tax collections; it
might pay to clip this column and attach it
to the return you send the Treasury today
-or to your congressman who will have to
vote these reforms into operation.
Here are the proposals:
-When the White House phones the Jus-
tice Department Tax Division regarding a
further hearing for a Missouri tax case
after Harry Schwimmer, attorney for the
President's close Kansas City friend Tom
Evans of Crown Drug stores has been
hired in the case, naturally Justice De-
partment lawyers take the cue. It sets a
general pattern down below. So also does
the behavior of White House cronies on
other matters.
Roosevelt gave the cue on influencg-pedd-
ling and tax-fixing at the start of his admin-
istration when he forced Democratic Na-
tional Committeemen Arthur Mullen of Ne-
braska, Bruce Kramer of Montana and Bob
Jackson of New Hampshire off the Demo-
cratic committee because they peddled in-
fluence. Truman, near the end of his ad-
ministration, still hasn't set a clear-cut cue
as yet.
* * *
PUBLICITY-The easiest, quickest way
to cure tax favoritism is by publishing
tax returns. Partial publicity was practiced
during the first years of the Roosevelt Ad-
ministration, and today full tax returns are
published in some states, notably Wisconsin.
But congress, which is more responsible
for tax favoritism than its sanctimonious
members will ever admit, overrode FDR
and put the quietus on any publicity re-
garding incomes. So solicitous were con-
gressmen for the big taxpayer that they
made it a criminal offense to leak or pub-
lish any income tax data.
This has played into the hands of a lot
of people, especially the influence peddlers
and those who deduct the expense of private
yachts, private airplanes and extensive par-
ties at the Stork Club or the Mayflower.
This was how Larry Knohl, the tax-
fixer, was able to take Washington offi-
cia'ls on his private plane. It was also why
the World Series games have become one
of the biggest tax deduction rackets in
New York. The U.S. Treasury, not the pub-
lic, paid for most of the box seats at the ,
World Series, thanks to the present system
of deducting lush entertainment expenses
from taxes.
While some entertainment expenses are
justifiable, it should be remembered that
the stenographer or salesgirl can't deduct

that she's helping to keep her job. Her taxes
are taken out of her salary with her pay-
check each week, and she gets no allowance
whatever for entertainment.
* * *
MORE PERSONNEL-Though the num-
ber of taxpayers has jumped from 7,288,000
to 89,270,000 since the Democrats came in
in 1933, the number of lawyers in the Jus-
tice Department's Tax Division has not in-
creased proportionately, while the number of
tax agents and employees in the Treasury
has fallen far below the proportionate in-
crease in tax returns.
Thus, while the number of taxpayers
has increased by ten times in 20 years,
the number of revenue bureau employees
has increased by only five times-from
11,524 in 1933 to about 55,000 today.
Meanwhile the Justice Department's tax
lawyers actually were decreased by con-
gressional economy from 90 in 1946 to 87 in
1951 despite the fact that the Tax Division
handled 1,606 cases in 1946 and 3,100 cases
in 1951.
The Tax Division was formerly under the
ousted Lamar Caudle; and though influence
was sometimes responsible for stymied cases,
more often it was just plain overwork.
The public has the idea that all lobbyists in
Washington are required to register. This is
wrong. Lobbyists hired to influence Congress
are required by law to register. But the law
does not apply to the really big-time lobby-
ists who pull wires before government bu-
reaus-such as the Treasury and Justice
Department to fix tax cases.
Congress, however, could change this
overnight by including them in the lob-
by registration law.
What Congress should do also is include
themselves in this law. For the biggest tax
influence is sometimes wielded by congress-
men on behalf of constituents who have
contributed heavily to their election.
* * *
year all big tax cases compromised without
going to court, should be reviewed by a
group of retired judges.
Under the judicial retirement act, re-
tired federal judges who draw pensions
from the government are subject to recall
from time to time for special work. Most
of them have distinguished careers and a
detailed knowledge of government.
Such a panel of retired judges could be
called back to duty once a year to pass on
the big tax cases that have been fixed out of
court. Probably it would be expedient to re-
view the smaller cases. However, the mere
fact that such a review board was function-
ing would be sufficient to discourage unjus-
tified compromises.
As of today, the public has no way of
knowing how these cases are handled, and
what political wire-puller has put across
a deal. For under the secrecy act the Secre-
tary of the Treasury is not required to tell.
CIVIL SERVICE-Taking the tax col-
lecting system out of politics has already
been proposed by President Truman and

WASHINGTON-On Friday, Anthony Ed-
en cooly but firmly announced that any
Chinese Communist adventures in Indo-
China or elsewhere in Southeast Asia would
be regarded as aggression and dealt with as
such. This vital declaration of policy has
aroused little excitement. Yet it means that
the British and American governments have
decided to go to war, or to come very close
to going to war with Communist China, un-
der certain circumstances that are quite
likely to arise.
This is a substantial, if somewhat ap-
palling first-fruit' of the Churchill-Tru-
man talks, which were originally billed to
produce no results whatever. The firming
of American policy, the sharp change in
emphasis in British policy, are so import-
ant that they need to be spelled out in
greater detail.
In brief, as first disclosed in this space,
Washington and London were informed
some weeks ago that the French government
now expects a Chinese Communist invasion
of Indo-China. Between 220,000 and 270,000
Chinese Communist troops are deployed on
the border in jump-off positions. If they at-
tack, the French and loyal Indo-Chinese
forces, with their hands full already with
the native Communist gueri'illas, will cer-
tainly be unable to withstand the invading
Chinese forces. Indo-China will fall, setting
off a chain reaction of disaster that will
spread through Siam, Malaya and Burma to
Indonesia, India and the Middle East.
THIS THREAT from the first inevitably
preoccupied President Truman, Prime
Minister Churchill and their staffs. The first
decision was that Soviet capture of almost
all of Asia would amount to total defeat in
the cold war. Plans for countering the
threatened chain reaction of disaster were
therefore carefully reviewed, and the second
decision was to reject any response on the
Korean pattern-local commitment of Am-
erican and other U.N. forces to a "limited"
war in Indo-China.
These decisions led inevitably to the final
and crucial decision-to meet any new Chi-
nese Communist aggression by strict naval
blockade of the China coast, air attacks on
Chinese coastal cities and inland communi-
cations, and such other reprisals against
China proper as may be practicable.
Although these measures are still short
of total, war with Communist China, no
one can say that they will not lead on to
such a war. Equally, no one can tell
whether these measures will bring the So-
viet Union into the Far Eastern fighting
under the mutual defense provisions of
the Sino-Soviet pact. These are the ter-
rible risks that may have to be taken, in
order to halt the threatened chain reac-
tion, starting in Indo-China, but certain
in the end to engulf the whole Western
Under the circumstances, it was obviously
prudent to let the Kremlin and the Peking
government know that Britain and the Uni-
ted States had steeled themselves to takeI
these risks if need be. Thus we could avoid
any repetition of the tragedy behind the
Korean war, when the sorry spectacle of
American disarmament convinced the
Kremlin that aggression was entirely safe.
Therefore it was agreed, as also forecast in
this space, to issue the stern warning that
has now been given by British Foreign Mini-
ster Eden in his lucid and wide ranging
Columbia University speech.
* * *
ASTO WHETHER we shall have to make
good on this warning, it is anyone's
guess. Ominous signs have accumulated in
recent weeks. At Paris, Andrei Vishinsky
has accused the Western powers of pre-
paring aggression in Southeast Asia, which
looks like the usual mirror-language of So-
viet propaganda. At Panmunjom, the Chinese
Communist and North Korean negotiators
have lately begun to treat the Korean peace
talks with such contempt that the majority
of the delegation actually occupies itself in

playing Mah Jong in the tent of meeting.
Besides the preparations against Indo-Chi-
na, there are grave signs of a threat to Bur-
ma, which ceratin intelligence experts find
even more alarming.
On the other hand, two great gains have
now been made. Peking and Moscow have
been told precisely what they will be risk-
ing by this attack which they have pre-
pared; and this is the likeliest preven-
tive. At the same time, the Kremlin and
the Chinese Communist Politburo have
been confronted with the recently unac-
customed spectacle of substantive Anglo-
American unity on Far Eastern policy.
There has been friction, in the Churchill-
Truman talks, about whether the Japanese
should semi-recognize Chiang Kai-shek,
since John Foster Dulles promised the Jap-
anese would be left free to choose. But here
the British have accepted our policy. On
the issue of recognition, the British have in
contrast refused to rescind their action,
while hinting they wished it had never been
taken. But on the real problem, of what to
do about the dangers looming in the Far
East, there has been full, solid, practical
agreement. This is all that matters, and no
greater political gain could be imagined.
