Liberal Harriman Supports
Democrat Fair Deal Policy

ALTHOUGH HE HAS not yet fully emerg-
ed as a powerful presidential candidate,
W.^ Averell Harriman, an outspoken New
York Democrat, seems to have many of the
qualities necessary to fill the position, and
the energy to carry on a fighting campaign.
Harriman, at present Mutual Security
Director, has long been an inside man on
national polity-making in both the Roose-
velt and Truman Administrations. He has
been closely connected with the imple-
mentation of our foreign policy for the
past twelve years, holding such jobs as
first administrator of Lend Lease, Euro-
pean Director of the Marshall Plan, and
special consultant to NATO.
As director of the foreign ail program,
Harriman has been anxious to see that our
allies are built into strong assets. He feels
that arming our allies is the best way to
keep America's young men at home, while
arguing vigorously that the congressional
foreign aid cuts are playing right into the
hands of the Kremlin. "Europe could never
have advanced as far as it has without our
Harriman, who has been present at every
important world-wide conference since the
beginning of World War II, has a great deal
of; insight into international situations. He
says, with little compunction: "No man
knows more about the Kremlin than I do,"
-and he is probably right. After returning
from his war-time post as ambassador to
Russia, he was one of the first to predict
that the Russians would not be willing to
cooperate with us after the fighting was
On domestic.issues, Harriman is much
more to the, left than other candidates.
He is the only candidate who doesn't hesi-
tate to give fall support to the entire New
Deal-Fair Deal Program.

Harriman is in favor of replacing the
Taft-Hartley act with a new labor law,
which will be fair to both labor and man-
He approves of Truman's seizure of the
steel industry because he feels it essential
to keep the mills open in view of the hos-
tilities in,Korea.
The Smith Act, under which court ac-
tion can be taken against those who ad-
vocate the overthrow of government by
force, has his approval. But he would like
to See the repeal of the McCarran act on
the grounds that many of its provisions
jeopardize civil liberties.
Harriman is in a position to get the sup-
port of labor and, perhaps, of management.
Recently, he was invited to address the AFL
Executive Council, an invitation which is
usually not extended to Presidential hope-
fuls. As former president of the Union Pa-
cific Railway and a one-time investment
banker, Harriman also may be able to win
a good deal of backing from management.
In addition to being President Truman's
rumored second choice for the Democratic
nomination, the popular administrator
has the solid support of New York State.
Democrats and the Americans for Demo-
cratic Action.
A new political development may be forth-
coming today when Gov. Adlai Stevenson of
Illinois gives an introductory speech for
Harriman at a Roosevelt College convoca-
tion honoring the latter as "Man of the
Year." Stevenson is expected to endorse
Harriman's candidacy. If he does, the New'
Yorker's chances will boom, and he may
well be on his way to the Democratic nomi-

Sen. Taft Has Tactical Advantage
Over Ike in Pre-Convention Moves

WAS HINGTON-Senator Taft's managers
now claim that they have 474 delegates
as against 310 for General Eisenhower. They
will continue to beat the drums on the
delegate count, which by any listing favors
them, in an effort to minimize the inevitable
fanfare accompanying General Eisenhower's
return here June 1.
This s the situation underlying a tacti-
cal struggle now in progress between the
Taft and Eisenhower forces. The win-
ning votes might lie in a contested dele-
gation which makes the credentials com-
mittee a vital, possibly controlling factor.
The public will get its first glimpse of this
aspect of the situation June 10-11 when
members of the national committee meet in
Chicago to name the temporary chairman,
who will deliver the keynote address at the
July Convention, and a permanent chair-

tee, will demand only that the men chosen
shall not be partisan. There are some Taft
backers they will not take, some they might.
There seems to be general agreement
that Rep. Joseph W. Martin, Jr., House
minority leader, who has been permanent
chairman for three conventions, can have
it again-a record for one man.
The temporary chairman is a different
story. The national committee itself decides
which of contesting delegations shall go on
the temporary roll of the convention. But
the temporary chairman rules whether or
not such temporarily seated delegates can
vote on the final seating, after the creden-
tials committee brings in its recommenda-
These, as the experts know, are the spots
where the decisive votes might be cast.
A Senator proposed in some quarters
for temporary chairman says he believes
the man who gets that job will be the
most hated man at the convention. He
cannot possibly satisfy both sides in a
difficult struggle and'he has, the Senator
claimed, no exact precedents to guide him.
There can be no doubt that Senator Taft
has the tactical advantage; the greatest re-*
straint upon him and his managers will be
their knowledge that the candidate named
must have the support of the whole party.

WASHINGTON-The pact for a European
ITArmy which the Foreign Ministers ini-
tialed Monday is not a lengthy document. It
is quite short. But behind its written pages
are thousands of unwritten chapters re-
cording the hopes of the future, the history
of the past, and the hurdles in the path of
Historically, the signing marked the cli-
max of 300 years of warfare, back and
forth across the Rhine, back and forth
between the French and German armies,
back and forth-until the wheat fields
and the forests were tangled with barbed
wire and drenched with blood.
So this pact, putting the armies of two
bitter enemies-France and Germany-un-
der one flag and in one uniform, could be
the most significant milestone for peace the
world has ever seen.
But because it does carry the hopes of
millions, and because the goals of the Krem-
lin do not flourish in the soil of peace, the
European Army pact faces terrific hurdles.
Moscow is determined that this pact never
shall go into full force. So the signing will
mark the beginning of the greatest war of
nerves since V-E Day.
Even before the ceremony, Moscow was
martialing its forces to scare Western Eur-
ope out of this momentous agreement. Here
are the moves which will come to a climax
in the immediate or near future:
1. General Matthew Ridgway's arrival
will touch off a vociferous anti-American
demonstration. He will be branded the
butcher of Korea, held responsible for the
highly exaggerated prisoner troubles in
Korea, and accused as a user.of germ
warfare. Communist propaganda regard-
ing germ warfare has been so successful
that about half the people of Europe re-
ally believe it.
2. Soviet rearmament of East Germany
will be increased. This is probably a psycho-
logical move made to worry the French and
scare the West Germans away from the Eu-
ropean Army pact.
3. There's been a heavy Russian build-up
around Berlin. Simultaneously Communist
civilians are reported planning to flock into
West Berlin, stage riots, and give an ex-
cuse to Communist troops to enter the city.
This time, it's reported, the Russians plan
to seize both Berlin airports, thus making it
impossible for usto repeat the airlift. In
such event, Berlin would be starved out and
have to capitulate. The alternative would be
4. European inflation is on the increase
and is our second worst enemy. Some peo-
ple claim it is even enemy no. 1. For, with
prices high and wages low, inflation
makes for Communism. Communist par-
liament members in France and Italy are
endeavoring to create as much economic
instability as possible in order to increase
Inflation has brought substantial business
to a standstill throughout Western. Europe,
and this will be increased if there is any
substantial cut in U.S. aid to Europe.
5. Ratification of the United Army pact
is uncertain, and will be made more so by
the above events. This is Moscow's real
goal-namely, to discourage, frighten, dis-
illusion the peoples of France and Germany
to such extent that their parliaments re-
fuse to ratify the historic pact.
Twenty-four years ago I was present in
the Salon D'Horloge at the signing of the
famed Kellogg-Briand Pact. The August sun
spread its slanting rays over the Seine,
penetrated the deep-curtained windows of
the Quai D'Orsay and danced among the
great crystal candelabra of Louis XVI as
Europe's statesmen scratched their names

on the parchment outlawing war supposedly
But in the background lurked forces ,of
Fascism and Nationalism which gradually
undercut that treaty and edged the world
toward war.
Today the same forces, this time under
Jhe name of Communism, are equally in-
tent on wrecking the pact being signed.
The question is, will they succeed? The
answer, in reality, is up to us.
It is supposed to be axiomatic that his-
tory repeats. But nothing is really axiomatic.
And if the more enlightened people of the
world remember the mistakes of the past,
history need not repeat.

This city has seen all sorts of lobbyists in
its day, but seldom such a high-powered,
high-level group as that now pulling wires
to defeat the President's pending veto on
tidelands oil.
Most significant thing about the lobby
is that this time it's not being directed by
the oil companies. The Federal Govern-
ment has promised that oil company leas-
es will be protected under federal opera-
tion, so the oil companies now don't care
whether they pay royalties to the Govern-
ment or to the three states which are cla-
moring for tidelands oil-Texas, Califor-
nia and Louisiana. All the oil companies
want is to have the dispute settled so they
can get down to work.
But having created a Frankenstein, the
oil companies are today unable to control
it, with the result that such solons as Sena-
tr Hlandri nf Wnrirdaanei xentorn now.

of the Committee on Examination

Stewart Dismissal .. .
To the Editor:
MANY PERSONS have sought
from me an explanation of
my position in the last special ses-
sion of ISA. The request is not an
unreasonable one. Along with
many other ISA delegates I was
present at the three inquiries on
the Erle Stewart dismissal case.
Along with those delegates I was
forced, by the facts of the testi-
monies, to conclude that the ac-
tion of the International Center's
Board of Governors, chairmaned
by Dr. Gale, had been deplorably
hasty. One can reach no other
conclusion when one learns that
indictment, prosecution without
defense, and conviction occur si-
multaneously in one short session.
However, it is one thing to agree
with the intent of a resolution
and quite another to agree with
its tone. The final resolution was
far too powerful for the occasion.
Had Dr. Gale been unwilling to
discuss the question or had he dis-

cussed it arbitrarily I would have
held the resolution to be just. But
such was not the case. Dr. Gale in
his inquiry session with us dis-
cussed the matter openly and
freely; he was anything but dic-
tatorial or inconsiderate of our
stand, even stating that he might
recommend Mr. Stewart's reap-
pointment to the Center staff this
June. In view of these facts I
found the language of the ISA
resolution quite out of taste. As
the assembly censured an unfair
dismissal under threat of request-
ing a University investigation of
the matter, I concurred. As the
assembly threatened "unremit-
ting" opposition to the Director's
policies if the case were not re-
considered, I offered my mild op-
position. But as the assembly dar-
ed go so far as to demand Dr.
Gale's resignation should he not
concede to ISA demands, I re-
signed. Some things simply are
not done in decent society.

At The Orpheum. . .
THE WINSLOW BOY, with Robert Do-
nat and Cedric Hardwicke.
THIS SHOWING could almost be consid-
ered a double-feature. There are 45
minutes of short subjects, including a car-
toon and Fitzpatrick travelogue left over
from last week's program. This brings the
total to two cartoons, two travelogues, an
attempt to enlist all the young ladies in
the audience in the female branch ~of the
Marine Corps, and a preview. This is de-
The feature, once it gets on the screen, is
rather pleasant. The Winslow boy is the
son of a retired banker who is expelled from
a naval academy for stealing five shillings.
Up to this point the picture seems to be
trusting to a somewhat sentimental story
and slightly ludicrous characterizations of
middle-class English types to carry it along.
Then Sir Cedric Hardwicke, convinced of
his son's innocence, decides to petition the
king to reconsider the case. He hires one of
the country's best lawyers to plead for his
son's acquittal.
Robert Donat, as the lawyer, a front.
bencher of His Majesty's Loyal Opposition,
is really a very humorous crusader for
"right," and accepts the case. Alternating
between mock histrionics and fiery ora.

At The Michigan . ..
MY SIX CONVICTS, with Millard Mit-
chell and John Beal
PRISON PICT&RES have probably fallen
victim to the sterotype treatment as
often as any other genre in Hollywood. That
is why it is a welcome. relief to find a movie
where the convicts are doing something more
with their time than planning breaks and
beating on the bars with tin-cups.
These popular penitentiary pastimes are
engaged in during the course of "My Six
Convicts," but accomplished with a cer-
tain finesse and savoir faire that, for my
money, James Cagney always lacked. This
is a kind of service to popular intelligence.
My prison inmate become, through this
story something close to a human being
and although the movie does not make his
a character of many dimensions besides,
the conception is a step in the right direc-
tion, both as drama and as frank propa-
ganda for the ex-con.
The central focus in this adaptation of
the Donald Powell Wilson best seller is on
the pioneering psychologist, Dr. D. P. Wilson,
who enters a California prison as the. insti-
tution's first "bugs doctor."
While no Vernon Fox, Dr. Wilson, as por-
trayed by John Beal is an engaging young
