By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP

"What's This Talk About An Ammunition Shortage?"

WASHINGTON - With Sen Joseph R.
McCarthy apparently riding higher
than ever, it is time to have a good, hard,
realistic look at his real political strength
and future political prospects. The shrewd-
est and most experienced observers on Capi-
tol Hill, including members of both parties,
all make much the same points when they
are asked to take such a look at McCarthy,
Their conclusions, which will not please
those who like to think that McCarthy is a
minor and transitory phenomenon, may be
listed as follows:
ONE. It is almost universally agreed
that McCarthy's objective is the Presi-
dency, and nothing less. It is also agreed
that the Republican party as now con-
stituted will never give him its Presiden-
tial nomination. The two-party machin-
ery, indeed, tends to squeeze out the
extremists - witness the fate of Henry
Wallace, when he went over to the ex-
treme left.
But McCarthy will have no compunctions
at all about wrecking the Republican party,
if this seems to serve his purposes. His
contempt for his own party was amply
demonstrated during the battle over the
confirmation of Charles E. Bohlen as Am-
bassador to the Soviet Union. He then im-
plied clearly that the Republican Secretary
of State was a liar. He arrogantly defied
both the Senate Republican leader and the
chairman of the Republican Policy Commit-
tee. And at least by implication, he also at-
tacked the Republican President.
TWO. Powerful McCarthy backers, not-
ably Col. Robert R. McCormick of the Chi-
cago Tribune, have already proclaimed the
death of the Republican party, and called
for a new party. Barring the most unlikely
chance of capturing the Republican party,
it is presumably McCarthy intentions to
ride to power with such a new party as his
vehicle.
THREE. McCarthy has certain very
great assets. For the first time in modern
American political history, he has suc-
ceeded in uniting behind him the whole
assortment of small, proto-Fascist ex-
tremist groups. These have existed for a
long time, but despite their attempts to
poison the political atmosphere, they have
heretofore been hardly more than a nuis-
ance. Now they are all together in one
movement, which can exercise a balance
of power in key aeas.
McCarthy has also demonstrated an ap-
peal, never enjoyed by the Gerald L. K.
Smith type of professional demagogue, to
certain solid conservative elements. Mc-
Carthy has plenty of financial backing. He
has important support in the press and on
the radio. Finally he has already shown
that he is in his own way a brilliant politi-
cal operator, capable of arousing fanatical
support.
Hlis supporters have the true mark of the
fanatic-they are not interested in facts.
The endless exposure of McCarthy's end-
less untruths do not affect them. Nor do
such devastating documents as the recent
Senate report on McCarthy's financial and
other activities. This fanatical support is
a vital asset to a man of McCarthy's ambi-
tions.
FOUR. There is no way to stop or
silence McCarthy. His opportunities to
stay in the news are unlimited. He is now,
for example, considering "moving in" on
the Central Intelligence Agency, and
there are plenty of other opportunities
if this does not work out. Moreover, an
attempt by the Senate Republican lead-
ership to isolate McCarthy in the Senate
would be futile.
It does not really matter whether McCar-
thy is isolated or not, as long as he can use
the Senate as a platform. And in any case,
an attempt to isolate McCarthy is extreme-
iy unlikely, since too many Senators have
compromised with McCarthyism in the past.
President Eisenhower. and only President
Eisenhower, could cut really seriously into
McCarthy's political power. But as time
goes on, this will become more and more

difficult.
FIVE. Can McCarthy reach the White
House? As one shrewd observer put it, the
idea "may seem fantastic at first glance,
but it would have seemed fantastic a few
years ago that he could have toppled a man
of. the experience and standing of Sen.
Tydings. It would be a mistake to assume
that he does not have the capacity to rally
behind him a well-financed, well-organized
party that could take power."
Other serious observers on Capitol Hill
take equally seriously the possibility that
McCarthy could ride to national power
on the wreckage of the Republican party.
The idea does indeed seem "fantastic at
first glance," especially in view of the his-
tory of third party movements in this
country. But McCarthy has been con-
sistently under-rated, and this has been
one of his greatest assets.
Actually, however their relationship may
develop, the fates of those two infinitely dis-
similar men, President Eisenhower and Sen.
McCarthy, seem inseparably linked. Prob-
ably only the failure of the Eisenhower ad-
ministratin, involving a serious depression
or a war, would give McCarthy a real op-
portunity for national power. This is why
all men of good will must pray for the suc-
cess of the Eisenhower administration. For

'WO OF THE currently featured exhibits
at the University Museum of Art, con-
tinuing through April 28th, are:. "Modern
Bible Illustrations" (South Gallery), and
the museum's own "Accessions - 1952"
(West). "Early Chinese Jades," the other
chief attraction, is in the Oriental Room,
and will be removed April 22nd. For your
convenience, the Alumni Memorial Hall gal-
leries, in addition to the regularly scheduled
hours, will hereafter reopen from 7 to 10
p.m., Monday through Thursday.
"Modern Bible Illustrations" is circu-
lated by the Museum of Modern Art,
and, though small, includes a high pro-
portion of excellent work. Foremost among
artists in this vein, of course, is Georges
Roualt. His color aquatint, "Christ Be-
fore the City," is a small gem, in his cus-
tomary "stained-glass" style. Roualt's
other two efforts are in black and white,
from the series MISERERE, familiar to
many through its recent publication in
book form by the MMA.
Andre Derain's "Last Supper" is remark-
ably delicate of line and an admirable com-
position, but rather resembles a debauch
than a serious occasion, which may distress
some visitors. The woodcut by Karl
Schmidt-Rolf, "Three Kings," is a good ex-
ample of primitivistic interpretation, heavy
and powerful.
Most of the moderns seem to prefer to
render their Biblical scenes grotesquely;
this tendency is most marked in Beckmann
and Ensor, and is strong also in Redon and
Picasso, although the former leans more
heavily on the macabre, and Picasso's ef-
forts are tinged with a humorous irony. A
comparison is invited between the moderns
and the two pairs of engravings by the 16th
century masters, Van Leyden and Alde-
grever, in the other show, which are grotes-
que, but in another way.
The pleasantest surprise (to me, at least)
of the lot was Inez Johnston, and on the
basis of her three pieces, I recommend that
interested parties buy stock in Miss John-
ston while the shares are still relatively low.
Her "Ancient Temple" is my favorite in the
room, in casein, a brightly colored mass of
MAJOR CAMPAIGN SPEECHES OF1
ADLAI E. STEVENSON. Random House.
T IS A GOOD thing to have Adlai Steven-
son's campaign speeches, the major ones,
collected in book form. I hope readers who
are Republicans will not pass by the book,
mentally burning it before delighted audi-
ences of political kinsmen. More than that
I hope Democrats will not carry it around
as a consolation prize.
The value of this book of speeches is no
longer political, despite their origin. It is
far too late to worry about anything tat
was determined in ballot boxes last No-
vember, and from a practical standpoint
it is much too early to start a Steven-
son-for-president movement for 1956. One
can, therefore, sit down and read this
book in the calm of emotions passed.
Even though Gov. Stevenson did not win
the election, he caused a stir; his appear-
ance on the political scene gave the Ameri-
can public an oportunity to see what most
had never seen-a campaigner who cared
more about appealing to the rational ele-
ment in his audience than to the emotional
element. Most Americans were, perhaps, so
impressed by the change that they were un-
able to analyze the nature of that change.
They can do that now.
The book contains fifty speeches from
Gov. Stevenson's files, which hold, he says,
whole or partial texts of some 250 speeches
"to as many groups, large and small, in
almost as many places." The speeches are
reprinted as they were delivered. Gov. Ste-
venson writes in his introduction, "I have
not 'edited' my campaign, nor have I edited
its record, these speeches, from the vantage
point of hindsight and afterthought. Hence

there is repetition, redundancy and restate-
ment. But they are the words, unchanged,
that were born and spoken in a great var-
iety of circumstances and under incredible
pressures."
I do not think any of the speeches in
this book will find their way soon into a
political science or history textbook. It
seems to me they may one day be import-
ant historically, but not for anything in
the speeches themselves. That "one day"
will be when reason rules our nation's p0-

detail that she has managed expertly to
combine into, a cohesive and dynamic com-
position. This (and her etchings as well) is,
a brilliant and quite personal synthesis of
elements from Klee, Miro, and especially the
pre-Colombian Indians, whose temple and
street I presume she is interpreting.
Roualt's lithograph, "Autumn," is another
prize acquisition, but he is familiar enough
to need no further comment; I pass over
samples by Cezanne and Picasso for the
same reason. Gabor Peterdi, however, is
another new name to me, but one I hope
to see again. "Spawning" is a nice, tightly
composed color etching and engraving.
With my fondness for free abstractions,
strong on color and completely unrepre-
sentational, I was naturally attracted by
David Smith's water color drawing, Ro-
bert Adams' composition, and Seong Moy's
color woodcut, which, despite its title,
"Homage to Lieou Pei," has no verbal-
izable meaning for me. Thrall's "No. 4,"
the painting I felt should have won first
prize in the last Michigan Water Color
Show, also falls into this class.
The pair of six-fold screens, "Mountain
Landscapes" on gilded paper, by Hyakunen,
was 'displayed earlier this year, but de-
serves another word as one of the finest an
most important recent additions to the mu-
seum collection. On an adjoining wall is an
interesting Korean item by Yong-Chin Kim.
Although done in 1950, the two watercolors
from his Sketchbook: Fourteen Fruit and
Flower Studies are executed in a style whose
tradition is older than any other in the
room.
In wandering about the galleries, don't
overlook the "fillers" from the museum's
permanent collection. The space in the
West Gallery not otherwise occupied, is
taken .ip by "European Drawings of the
16th and 17th Centuries." The North Gal-
lery contains, among other things, a few
old favorites, including Ben Nicholson's
"Still Life," Carlos Merida's "Tarascan Re-
collections," and Lawrence Kupferman's
"Protozoan Community." It's a tour every-
one can afford.
-Siegfried Feller
litics and someone writes a book on how
that happy state came to pass. Steven-
son will certainly figure in such a book.
He sees his task as that of educating and
building such a nation:
"We lost the election; we were soundly
defeated. But if I talked sense, if I suc-
ceeded in expressing my ideas as I set out
to do, if I educated and elevated any of us,
then I am richly rewarded.
"I have no regrets about losing the elec-
tion, except for the disappointments of so
many dedicated supporters who share my
hope of revitalizing a basic assumption of
democracy: honest political leadership that
despises the easy road to popularity and in-
sists on focusing attention on reality and
truth, however distasteful. Unless the great
political parties and their spokesmen assume
responsibility for educating and guiding the
people with constant candor, how can we
be sure that majority rule will meet the
test of these-searching times?"
On November 1, 1952, Gov. Stevenson
spoke in Chicago Stadium. Near the end
of his speech he said:
"As we plan for change let us be sure that
our vision is high enough and broad enough
so that it encompasses every single hope
and dream of both the greatest and humb-
lest among us.
"I see an America where no man fears to
think as he pleases, or say what he thinks.
"I see an America where slums and
tenements have vanished and children
raised in decency and self-respect.
"I see an America where men and women
have leisure from toil--leisure to cultivate
the resources of the spirit.

"I see an America where no man is anoth-
er's master--where no man's mind is dark
with fear.
"I see an America at peace with the world.
"I see an America as the horizon of
human hopes."
These are not new hopes - the great
spokesmen for the American ideal have al-
ways had them, in one form or another. But
in "these searching times" it is to the bene-
fit of all to have so qualified a spokesman as
Gov. Stevenson restating them and bending
his resources to their fulfillment.

ON THE
WASHINGTON
MERRY-GO-ROUND
WITH DREW PEARSON
WASHINGTON-Most people don't know it, but the art of fooling
the public has now become a major industry. Millions of dollars
are paid to public-relations firms to fool the public into thinking that
the public has made up its mind on certain questions, when, as a
matter of fact, the public-relations firm has made up the public's
mind for it.
Here are two illustrations of this fooling-the-public racket
just come to light.
One is the manner in which certain women's club leaders were
paid off and civic associations were formed by Carl Byoir and asso-
ciates on behalf of the railroads to combat the trucking industry.
The other is a secret memo by the same Carl Byoir to Craig
Sheaffer, now assistant Secretary of Commerce, aimed at fooling the
public into accepting a national sales tax. -
Sheaffer, head of the fountain-pen company by that name,
is the same man who kicked up a national furor by firing the
director of the Bureau of Standards because he was allegedly
unfair to auto-battery pepper-ups. Sheaffer's background seems
to fit into the Carl Byoir technique of fooling the public. He was
a heavy contributor to rabble-rousers Merwin K. Hart and Upton
Close; once became indignant at the way one of his pens was
tested by the bureau of standards.
Byoir, incidentally, is the same man exposed by a Congressional
committee as having received $6,000 a month as a public-relations
representative for the Nazi Government before Pearl Harbor. This
deal was arranged by George Sylvester Viereck who later went to jail
for failure to register as a Hitler agent.
- HIGH-SOUNDING TAX STUDY -
THE MANNER in which the unsuspecting public is fed publicity
under the high-sounding name of some civic organization is illus-
trated by Byoir's organization of "the New Jersey Citizens Tax Study
Foundation."
The average taxpayer would consider this a most, worthy
cause, dedicated to helping him lower his taxes. However, a study
of the backstage facts shows that the tax-study foundation was
actually organized at the time Carl Byoir was launching his New
Jersey battle of the railroads against the truckers.
Also, court records reveal a long list of checks paid by the Byoir
firm to Fred W. Goodwin, executive director of the supposedly neutral
tax foundation. These payments during the latter part of 1951 and
1952 totaled $3,700.58. In addition, two checks totaling $300 were
paid to the tax foundation by the Byoir firm direct.
Finally a memo written by Byoir's chief public-relations operator
in New Jersey to other members of Byoir's staff during the trucks vs.
railroads battle, reads:
"We are also assisting in the formation of a new group:
New Jersey Citizens Tax Study Foundation ... all literature, etc.,
from this group must be on plain paper and mailed from New
Jersey."

DESPERATE SEARCH,
and Patricia Medina

with Howard Keel

ALTHOUGH it is obvious from the outset
that this picture aims at nothing higher
than melodrama, one is allowed to hope
for something a cut above the soap opera va-
riety. The first few scenes are handled with
some reserve' and intelligence. Before very

Keel has to face up to Patricia Medina, his
scornful hard-as-nails first wife who is also
an ace flier, and he has a pretty bad time
of it.
To present this clash of wills, the picture
uses an unconvincing ploy about determ-
ining just where to search. Miss Medina
is all for relying on hard cold science, Keel
on his almost almost infallible old pilot's
instinct. A more serious defect than this,
however, is the sketchy development of
