ASHINGTON-Andrei Gromy-
ko got his first introduction to
Washington as the dour, uncom-
mun'icative Secretary of the Soviet
Embassy on 16th Street. He lived;
not far from the White House in'
the mansion once owned by Mrs.
Pullman of the Pullman Car Com-
pany, whose president was Robert
Todd Lincoln, son of Abe Lincoln:
T h .at residence, however, was
Gromyko's only connection with
American tradition.
John Foster Dulles first saw
Washington as a young adviser to
his uncle, Robert Lansing, Secre-
tary of State for Woodrow Wilson;
his grandfather, John Foster, was
Secretary of State in Benjamin
Harrison's cabinet; and John Fos-
ter was steeped in American tradi-
tion. His great ambition was to
become Secretary of State.'
* * *
1I DO NOT know what Andrei
Gromyko's ambition was, or
whether a Communist bureaucrat
is supposed to have ambition. But
I do know that Gromyko even-
tually worked up the Communist
ladder until he became ambassa-
dor in that old Pullman mansion
on 16th Street, and later Minister
of Foreign Affairs.
Simultaneously, John F'o s t e r
Dulles had come from one of the
oldest, most renowned law firms
on Wall Street to become a spe-
cialist in foreign affairs, then
Secretary of State. Both men offi-
cially were equal, but unofficially,
Dulles was always able to talk to
Gromyko from a position of pres-
tige and power-the prestige of his
background and the power of hav-
ing the H-bomb, the A-bomb, and
the greatest air force in the world.
Last week, however, that situa-
tion was reversed. As these two
men sat down in Dulles's colonial
mansion overlooking Rock Creek,
our Secretary of State found him-
self talking-to a man whose coun-
try had developed the intercon-
tinental ballistic missile, a new jet
transport, and an earth satellite
which electrified the world.
There could have been no worse
time for Foster Dulles to have held

this talk. But he had to. Events in
various parts of the world were
slipping away from his govern-
I do not know the specific de-
tails of what the two men talked
about, but I do know that before
they began talking, this was what
faced John Foster Dulles. This was
why he asked Gromyko to sit down
face to face.
1) The Turkish Ambassador had
been calling at the State Depart-
ment repeatedly to warn that
Turkey was not going to stand still
.while Russia built up a vast arms
base in Syria to the south, and
kept a Russian fleet three times
the size of the United States Sixth.
Fleet to the north in the Black
2) Turkish Prime Minister Men-
deres hinted to the American Em-
bassy in Ankara t h a t Turkey
might take things into its own.
hands regarding the big Russian
arms base in Syria unless Presi-
derit Eisenhower makes a bold
move to halt Russian expansion in
the Near East.
* * *
3) THE LEBANESE government
has informed the State Depart-
ment in blunt and vigorous lan--
guage that the Russian timetable
is scheduled to take over all the
Near East-within one'year. ,
4) The Israeli government has
told the State Department that
there will be little i'se having a
NATO army protecting western
Europe from Russia, if Russia
takes over the Near East and can
cut off oil to supply the NATO
army, plus oil to supply the fac-
tories of Europe.
These ambassadors and prime
ministers were not kidding.
When' the Prime Minister of
Turley talked about moving in on
Syria, the State Department knew
he meant it. For, one month ago,
Turkey almost marched on the
Syrian city of Aleppo. And the
American public never kioew how
close the Near East was to war in
One reason the Turks didn't
move is because they haven't been
able to get assurances from the

United States of NATO support in
case the Russian fleet started bom-
barding the Turkish coast in sup-
port of its satellite, Syria.
The State Department hasn't
said .yes, and it hasn't said no. It
j u s t hasn't said anything. It
doesn't want to see our good friend
and ally, Turkey, squeezed between
a Russianized Syria on the south
and the Russian fleet on the north..
But at the same time, it doesn't
want to risk a world war.
That's one of the reasons John
Foster Dulles had to talk with An-
drei Gromyko.
The Russian timetable in the
Near East has not been published,
but Arab diplomats friendly to the
West feel sure they know what it
It is first of all to consolidate

been making soundings in Washington with
a view to a formal request in the fairly near
future for a substantial loan. The Minister of
Finance, puts India's over-all needs at a credit
In dollars, sterling and German marks of about
$1,000,000,000 of which India would actually
need to draw down about $700,000,000 over a
period of some eight years before beginning to
repay the debt. The American share of this loan
could hardly be less than $500,000,000.
Evidently, a transaction of thast size would
require specific authorization from Congress.
Phis Congressional action would need to be
taken fairly early in the next session of Con-
gress-not later, it is said, than March when
the Indian reserves of foreign exchange will
have been run down to a critical point.
If this loan cannot be arranged, there will
have to be a serious cut-back in both private,
and public economic development in India.
The task of persuading Congress to vote such
a loan is, it might be said, one of, those things
which are impossible to do and yet have to be
done, The prospects could hardly be more un-
favorable. But, when the President has enabled
the country to understand what is at stake,
our people will, as they have done before, con-
clude that what is necessary, must be done.
WEY MUST IT BE:DONE? Because India is
the supreme testing ground for all of Asia
and of Africa of the question whether an under-
developed country can raise itself from extreme
poverty by democratic, as against Communist
methods. If India succeeds in her present plans
of development, it will have been proved that
backward countries do not have to follow the
example of Russia and of Red China.
If India feils, if her economic development is
strangled, it will be a fateful moment in the
history of the world. For it will have been,
proved by a practical test that the free world is
not willing to make any substantial sacrifice in;

trouble to explain thoroughly and patiently
why it needs to be done.
India has a population which is more than
twice as big as ours. She has a national income
which is only about one-twentieth as large as
ours. Her standard of living is one of the lowest
in the world, and at the present level of develop-
ment her resources are barely capable of
keeping up with her terrifying growth in popu-
lation. .
The Indian government is a free government,
based on free elections and the fundamental
- rights of a free society--freedom of religion,
of thought and of speech-are carefully re-
spected The Indian government, which often
differs with our own government in foreign
policy, is nonetheless a free government, as
free, it is fair-to sa'y, as any in the world of
It cannot, however, hope to survive on its
adherence to ideals and principles alone. It
must offer to the Indian people the hope, that
within the reasonably near future they will be
emerging from their present poverty. If " the
Indian government cannot hold out that hope,
there will surely be a reaction against liberty
and towards a totalitarian system.
10 MEET THE NEED of development, the
Indian government has drawn up plans of
investment, and it is now at the beginning of a
second plan which calls for an investment of
some ten to fifteen billion dollars in the course
of a five year period. This looks big. There are
some experts who think it is too big. But the
Indian problem is enormously big, and, even if
thie plan is carried out successfully, the best
that can be hoped for -is an increase of national
income at the rate of 5 per cent a year.
This plan cannot, however, be carried out
without capital assistance from abroad-capital
assistance from private corporations, from the
World Bank, from Britain, France, Germany
and the United States. The question before this,

defeat of the idea by "our admin-

.something more than just a girl-

alum, but rather it serves as an
example of the reactionary atti-

their respective "tools."
Not to be misunderstood, the
administration of this school isn't
completely against progressive

Or will one crash program after
another be necessary to keep Rus-
