kRWiIAY, AkR~ll ':, 1954

Plum For
Red China
THE forthcoming Geneva convention may
well decide the fate of American hopes
for a unified European Defense Alliance.
The conference, which was called in an
attempt to iron out Asian problems, will un-
doubtedly center upon the French-Indochi-
nese War. Unless the War is concluded short-
ly, top French officials say, there is grave
d.anger that the current French Cabinet will
fall, and with it, the last possibility of French
ratification of European Defense Community
The French People have for five years been
engaged in a battle that is sucking them dry
of resources and manpower. Dissatisfaction
with government handling of the war is rap-
idly building up. The French masses are
growing more and more impatient with gov-
ernmental promises of a quick end to the
War. The deadline, some French officials be-
lieve, is the Geneva conference. Unless the
Geneva Conference can settle the Indochina
problem, the French People will elect a gov-
ernment determined to get out of Indochina
the quickest and cheapest way possible.
That would mean either: 1) Increased Indo-
chinese Military expenditures with a cor-
responding decrease in EDC funds (if the
Gaulists win); or, 2) or isolationist policy
which would abandon a continental alliance
altogether (if the large pro-Communist fac-
tion gains controls. In either case, U.S. plans
for a unified European Defense Alliance
would be shattered.
The Laniel Cabinet is looking toward
the U.S. for help. It realizes that the
French have nothing to offer China as an
inducement to stop supplying Ho Chi Minh
with arms and aid. The only plum that
China can possibly hope to pluck from the
conference table in U.S. recognition. And
it is for just this recognition that the
French are appealing to Washington.
This then, briefly, is the chain which binds
U.S. plans for EDC with the Asian Confer-
1) Unless China can be manuevered into
using her influence to stop the Indochinese
war, the French pro-American, pro-EDC co-
alition will fall, to be replaced by a govern-
ment hostile to U.S. interests.
20) The only way to pursuade Red China
to stop fighting in Indochina is by offering
her U.S. recognition.
3) U.S. recognition, presumbably, will
mean an end to the Indochinese conflict,
and the consequent ratification of EDC by a
friendly French government.
It would seem that the path U.S.-Asian
policy should follow is clearly defined; in-
deed, scarcely debatable. Yet, there is a
grave possibility that all US plans will go
down the drain. The Cause: the strength of
pro-Chaing, anti-Red recognition sentiment
in America.
The blind refusal of a great majority of
Americans to even consider recognition of
Communist China is due to the propaganda
campaign of the powerful "China Lobby."
This high-powered pressure group is paid a
high fee by the Nationalist Government on
Fofmosa to keep anti-Red recognition feel-
ing in America high. The recognition of Red
China would necessarily mean a repudia-
tion of the Nationalist Government. The
China Lobby intends to avoid this at any
cost. It has a very influential friend in Sen-
ate Republican Leader William Knowland,
sometimes referred to as the "Senator from
Formosa." It is his group that has been so
violently against any consideration of grant-
ing recognition to Communist China.
The continued non-recognition of a ma-
jor world power is both unrealistic and
unprofitable. Recognition, on the other
hand, would mean not only the end of the'
conflict in Indochina, but the probable
ratification of EDO as well.
Also, it should be kept in mind that rec-
ognition of Red China in no way implies ap-
The advantages of using recognition as a
bargaining point cannot be ignored. As has
been said repeatedly, on this issue hinges the

fact of a long-lasting, binding unified de-
fense alliance. It can only be hoped that the
hysteria which currently accompanies theI
mention of Red China will not dictate the
policy decisions made at the Geneva Confer-

"You Can Sit On The Floor"



Washington Merry-Go-Round

WTASHINGTON -- Those who participated
in the McCarthy-Cohn call upon elder
statesman Bernard Baruch aren't talking
about what happened, and are likely to is-
sue denials. However, what Senator McCar-
thy did was to apply the first thinly veiled
anti-Semitic pressure, this country has seen
-the same pressure that Hitler's brown
shirts applied before he got into power.
Senator McCarthy went to call on the.
istinguished 83-year-old adviser to presi-
dents at the Drake Hotel in New York. Ba-
ruch has been spending most of the win-
ter at his farm in South Carolina and had
not opened his New York apartment. With
McCarthy went Roy Cohn and George
Sokolsky, who arranged for the interview.
According to Baruch's friends the reason
for McCarthy's visit was to apologize for
slurs he had cast on the City College of New
York, Baruch's alma mater, which McCarthy
implied specialized in graduating Commu-
The real reason for the visit, however, ap-
peared to be to persuade Baruch, as an elder
statesman, to use his influence with the Na-
tional Broadcasting Company and Columbia
Broadcasting System to give McCarthy time
to answer Adlai Stevenson, Furthermore,
McCarthy wanted Baruch to use religious
Friends of Baruch say that during the
McCarthy call, the Senator made the point
that he was certainly not anti-Semitic, as
evidenced by the fact that his chief coun-
sel. Cohn, was Jewish, together with his
ex-staff member, David Schine. But he
pointed out that some of his followers
might be anti-Semitic, and it might be dif-
ficult to restrain them from criticizing
the two big networks, whose executives
are Jewish, for refusing him time.
Chairman of CBS is William Paley. Head
of NBC, through the Radio Corporation of
America, is David Sarnoff. Both are dis-
tinguished Americans who have made gen-
erous contributions to their country in war
and peace, and both are of the Jewish faith.
McCarthy's veiled threat was discreetly,
politely put, but was nonetheless unmistak-
able. Baruch made no comment and no
commitments, Shortly after the interview
he went back to South Carolina and has not
been available for comment since.
IT WAS purposely omitted from the official
findings, but the Senate Elections Sub-
committee stumbled across a juicy Republi-
can scandal in its search for Democratic
scandals in New Mexico. What happened
was that Republican leaders tried to gorge
$100,000 from GOP candidate Patrick J.
Hurley. In brief, they tried to sell the GOP
nomination as Senator from New Mexico for
$100,000 cash on the line.
At Lydia llendeissohn .*
ed by the Department of Speech.
HIS IS one of the most enjoyable speech
department productions in a long time.
"The Shrew" is a farce, and Director Wil-
liam Halstead plays it for every laugh it
has. He has a fine cast-both in ability
and energy.
Leading the list are Eise Simon ( as
the Shrew) and Dale Stevenson ( as the
Tamer). Miss Simon is a fierce little num-
ber, properly the loudest and nastiest in
the show. She carries her own in any sit-
uation, and more often than not she holds
the stage in her scenes. Even in her
"tamed" moments we can see the fire
burning in her, and she never lets her
role degenerate into bombast.
Stevenson plays what is necessarily a.
stronger-willed man. And, in order to out-
yell Miss Simon. he is necessarily louder;
out this does not keep him from managing

his role with subtlety and discretion.
Some of the most hilarious scenes were
stolen by a rather lumpy two-man horse,
The occupants thereof, Robert Armstrong

Though the investigators were under
orders to dig up dirt against Democratic
Sen. Dennis Chavez, they filed one con-
fidential report that was considerably
more embarrassing to the Republicans. It
never saw the light of day. Here are pert-
inent extracts from the suppressed report:
"As far back as November 21, 1951," the
report states, "(Pat) Hurley was approached
by Harry Robins, Republican chairman of
the State Central Committee, Governor Ed-
win Mechem and Fred Moxey, tax commis-
sioner, and perhaps others, in a. meeting at
the Lafonda Hotel, room 12, Santa Fe,
New Mexico, in regard to certain monetary
advances from the contestant (Hurley)."
HURLEY indignantly rejected the propos-
al on the grounds that he "would be vio-
lating every corrupt practice law of both
the state of New Mexico and the United
States" and also "would be guilty of such
illegal conduct that would bar him from
being seated in the United States Senate, if
As a result, the GOP machine opposed
Hurley in the pre-primary convention and
later in the primary, though Hurley won
both contests hands down.
"As a result," adds the suppressed Senate
report, "the contestant (Hurley) and the Re-
publican organization worked independently
during the general election campaign."
'[-HE SENATE investigators, checking on
Hurley's sworn statement, got an admis-
sion from Harry Robins about the $100,000
"The committee has in its possession a
tape recording on which Harry Robins, the
Republican State Chairman, admitted that
the monetary demand was his own idea," ac-
cording to the investigators' report. "How-
ever, he excused the demand as a lever to run
the contestant's (Hurley's) campaign and
his very actions, including what clothes and
glasses he would be permitted to wear. Mr.
Robins also stated on this same tape record-
ing that this sum would be used to finance
the campaigns of two candidates for Con-
"When Mr. Robins was interviewed, he
related that the money referred to above
was to be placed in escrow to hold the con-
testant in line. However, he was vague,
when questioned, what possible stipulation
for such an escrow agreement he had in
Note-The $200,000 New Mexico investiga-
tion was run by GOP Senators Barrett of
Wyoming and Potter of Michigan. The only
Democratic member of the subcommittee,
Senator Hennings of Missouri, complained
that he was "excluded entirely" from the
committee's activities.

and James Umphrey, (reading from back
to front), seem to have added dimensions
to their interpretation that even their fel-
low-actors didn't expect-at least they
were laughing too,
Of the innumerable clowns, two in partic-
ular stand out: Conrad Stolzenbach, as the
bum for whom the play is given, and Rich-
ard Joy, who plays Stevenson's servant. Sev-
eral characters--Arnold Stein, for example
--made use of their relaxed moments to take
up Hamletlike poses against the pillars (or
perhaps it was just the Elizabethan cos-
tumes which suggested this).
Of the production itself, it might be well
to note that a few liberties were taken with
the play which made it easier to follow,
and added a few comic touches that
Shakespeare missed. The set was mobile
enough to allow for changes of scene with
only a few moments' alteration, and the
play moved quite smoothly because of it.
With a play like this, as with the Gilbert
and Sullivan productions, it is as much the
spirit of the actors as their theatrical ability

that counts; it is pleasant when a show can
have both.
