DREW PEARSON:
Washington
Merry-Go-Ro uncd
WASHINGTON-The Korean crisis has put
a crimp in the lush lecture fees of Sen-
ators and Congressmen. However, many still
slip away for occasional week-end lectures
when they need spare change. Their fees
run from $200 to $750 an evening-though
Vice President Barkley, the star attraction,
collects as high as $1,500 for a one-night
stand.
For example, Sen. Hubert Humphrey,
Minnesota. Democrat, was so broke after
paying his campaign bills and moving his
family to Washington that he had to bor-
row money in order to eat. Ile finally
hired out as a lecturer on his spare nights,
earned an extra $6,000 last year.
Oregon's GOP Sen. Wayne Morse went
$25,000 in the hole during his first campaign,
filled lecture engagements to make up the
deficit. He still averages $10,000 a yea
speaking for hire.
Sen. Estes Kefauver, Tennessee Democrat,
needed $3,000 to pay off his mortgage. He
hit the lecture trail on week ends, earned
enough in six months to pull out of the red.
TOP DRAWING CARD
A TOP DRAWING CARD on the lectureI
circuit is Congressman Franklin D.
doosevelt, Jr., whose famous name com-
:.Inands a fat fee. However, his profits go to
pay for extra stenographers to handle the
h Jeavy mail that deluges his Congressional
office, also because of his famous name. Last
year he paid $12,000 out of his own pocket
for office help, made up half of this from
lecture fees.
The best-paid political lecturer, of course,
is Vice President Barkley, who can almost
name his own price because of his great
prestige and platform appeal.
In addition, even the millionaire senators,
such as Oklahoma's Robert Kerr, do some
lecturing for hire. They usually assign the
fee to some charity, however, such as Kerr's
favorite-the Baptist Foundation in Okla-
homa City.
Most Senators and Congressmen who do
professional lecturing are handled by
speakers' bureaus which take a 30 per cent
ct. These agencies give their clients a
ballyhoo build-up befitting movie stars.
here are a few samples:
Sen. Charles Tobey, New Hampshire Re-
publican-"a fast-talking Yankee who cru-
sades realistically but relentlessly;" Con-
gresswoman Helen Gahagan Douglas, Calif-
ornia Democrat - "glamorous and distin-
guished leader of the liberals;" Sen. Joseph
O'Mahoney, Wyoming Democrat - "A fore-'
most exponent of truly free business."
Sen. Styles Bridges, New Hampshire Re-
Publican-"dynamic personality and a mag-
netic, sincere speaker;" Sen. Lister Hill, Ala-
bama Democrat-"exceptionally well quali-
fied to speak at industrial functions;" Sen.
Owen Brewster, Maine Republican-"pre-
sents conclusions intelligently and with in
disputable sincerity."
Sen. Joe McCarthy's speaking fee has
trebled since hitting the headlines with his
charges of Communist infestation in the
State Department. Other Senators and Con-
gressmen, such as Speaker Sam Rayburn
and Sen. Glen Taylor of Idaho, won't speak
for money.
HOLDING KOREA
GENERAL OMAR BRADLEY, the nation's
No. 1 soldier, has flatly assured the
President that American troops will not be
pushed out of Korea.
Comparing the present Korean battle
with the toehold the Allies held on Europe
at historic Omaha Beach in June, 1944,
Bradley drew some striking parallels. Here,
in brief, is what he told the President:
1-Ve will so4pnhaveas ma .iviSnnin
Koi-e a We hd t Oiiah'aeach' whfi' the
north Koreans will be almost the same nu-
merical strength as the Germans surround-
ing Omaha teach.

2-While our forces in Korea are not as
well trained as those we sent into Germany,
the North Korean troops don't compare with
the German Wehrmacht.
3-United Nations forces in Korea will
have the same, or possibly greater, air su-
periority as they held at D-Day in Europe:
The naval situation is also an exact parallel,
since we control the seas.
Bradley recalled that, under these circum-\
stances, the Allies gave a pretty good ac-
count of themselves in Normandy.

The, Way to Peace

"It Sure Is"

WITH OUR ATTENTION concentrated
winning the Korean War we must re-
member that winning that war is still sec-
ondary to winning a world-wide lasting
peace.
The world can not hope to live without
fear of war and be able to enjoy pros-
perity to the fullest of its potentialities
until the threat of a successful world
Communist movement is removed. In our
efforts to remove this threat we must not
deter from democratic principles in the
least and must not allow one life to be,
lost needlessly.
It is possible to secure peace, increase the
world's level of living and advance demo-
cratic institutions if we place a high prem-
ium on life-Eastern as well as Western-are
far-sighted and willing to sacrifice some
measure of national wealth and sovereignty
to adhere to a determined long-range plan
despite temporary setbacks.
In Korea where Communist expansion has
taken the form of armed aggression we have
no choice but to meet it with force if we
are not to follow a course of appeasement
which can only serve to further whet the
Red appetite for aggression.
We must continue to fight there only as
long as the Communist forces are unwilling
to withdraw. Once Communists are willing
to lay down their arms and accept our terms,
the UN must come upon the scene and pre-
pare to unite the two Koreas via a free na-
tional election, in which the Communists
would also participate. There is no reason to
believe that a party offering political free,
domoras well as being willing to grant land
reforms and any other socializing reformp
where needed, won't be chosen over Com-
munism.
No people would be foolish enough to
choose a government that would rule by
force and relegate the country to the sta-
tus of a Soviet satelite-if they are pre-
sented with a real alternative.
In other parts of Asia Communism is
spreading without resort to armed aggres-
sion. Ind.-China, Malaya, Burma and Tibet
are teetering on the brink of the Communist
cesspool. If they go Thailand is bound to go.
The insurrections in the Philippines would
increase. Tremendous Communist pressure
on India and Pakistan could take its toll of
these countries. To save these countries we'-
ye got to do away with the cesspools.
This is the most important and urgent
job. Not only in Asia, but in Africa and weak
European nations. We've got to help these
peoples raise their levels of living. If not inl
the spirit of kindess and fellowship, then to
stop them from grasping. Communism.
This can be accomplished by continua-
tion of the Marshall Plan and a greatly
expanded Point Four Program. These two
instruments must form the basis of our
foreign policy not just be incidentals to
rearming programs. The misery that
makes life seem hopeless and causes people
to fall aback on Communism to tempor-

arily relieve the pain of living must be eli-
minated. And sharing of our wealth and
know-how is the way to do the job.
In Asia and Africa colonial peoples are
straining at their leashes for independence.
They are tired of playing a subservient role.
They want to plot their own destinies. With
this goal they have the full, although selfish
sympathy of the Soviet Union. Is there any
reason why we shouldn't help them out of
righteousness in their struggle?
The Communist propaganda is not only
increasing the nationalistic yearnings of
these people, but is transforming these nort
mal emotions into vicious racism. This is de-
signed to incite rebellion against the "white
Western overlord" and put the Communistg
in a position to assume the title of the sav-
iors of the colonial peoples. To counteract
the Communist efforts we need only demon-
strate that we believe in freedom for all peo-
ples and actively oppose colonial oppression.
Policies such as these can prevent further
Communist expansion and as such are in-
struments for the maintenance of peace.
As a bulwark against outright armed
aggression we have no choice but to arm
with the hope that Russia will not be
foolish enough to attack when there exists
an o p p o si n g alliance whose military
strength is greater than her own.
The appropriate means for building thi6
opposition is the UN. We should take ad-
vantage of the Korean situation and per-
manently contribute our armies fighting
there to an international police force. With
the example of the U.S., the UN should re-
quest the other free nations to contribute
forces in proportion to the population, in-
dustrial capacity and internal conditions of
the individual nation. In this way an effect.
ive force can be maintained to deter a trig-
ger-happy Politburo without fully militariz-
ing any one nation.
Once a successful military alliance has
shown that international cooperation on a
large-scale is possible we should be able to
demonstrate that political and economic unir-
fication is more than a dream but the only
realistic way of eventually achieving lasting
peace. That the European notions realize
this is evidenced by the proposal of the
Schuman Plan and the present meeting of,
the Consultative Assembly of the Council of
Europe. But a unification plan can only suc-
ceed in achieving such a broad goal if the
U.S. participates.
Peace can only be achieved by following
these policies and waiting for history to take
its inevitable course inside Russia. Continu-
ation of the oppressive treatment of her pop-
ulation and almost complete use of industrial
power for military purposes will eventually
incite the Russian people to rise in revolt.
When this happens the new government can
be incorporated into the unification that
then exists and we will have true world fed-
eration and lasting peace.

Hopeless War ..
To the Editor:
I WE SHOULD be pushed out
of Korea, and at the present
time such seems to be reasonably
possible, we may accept our evic-
tion as further proof that we are
rapidly approaching the close of
an era, an era of Western domina-
tion of Asiatic peoples. We need
but review the occurrences of very
recent years to see that Western
imperialism in Asia with its tight
political and economic controls has
so broken down as to presage its
complete disappearance in the near
future.

We saw the British retire from
Burma with little show of dignity,
and again we saw them without
enthusiasm or genuine magnanim-
ity grant India and Pakistan "do-
minion" status. Still again we saw
the stubborn Dutch forcibly eject-
ed from their lush East Indian pos-
sessions. And further we saw the
United States, together with Brit-
ain, lose her strong position in
China through her misguided; in-
discriminate support of the cor-
rupt, double-dealing boss of the
Kuomintang, the now entirely dis-
credited Chiang Kai Shek. There
was one withdrawal, however,
which we Americans, at least, can
point to pridefully, and that is our
granting to the Philippine Islands
their full political independence.

a.

will deny that the French and Brit-
ish situation in Asia, not to men-
tion our own, which has heavy
overtones of imperialistic control
in 'both political and economic
spheres can be maintained only
through the expenditure of billions
of American dollars and perhaps
the waging of total war. The era
when Western imperialism could
be successfully and profitably bol-
stered by the employment of a few
well armed gun boats, a few hund-
red troops, and a handful of daz-
zling, fear-provoking aircraft is
now fast drawing to a close.
One more apparent observation
is sufficient to suggest a wiser,
more fruitful policy to be followed
by the Western democracies in
place of that so laden with politi-
cali mperialism. We see that even
though India, Pakistan, Burma,
the Dutch East Indies, and the
Philippines have been released
from the restraining influence of
their parent states, they have not
as we say, "gone Communistic,"
failing, in spite of our expecta-
tions, to render themselves in any
way subservient to the greatly
feared ambitions of Communist
Russia, On the contrary, these
baby states, proud of their newly
acquired status, have been drawn
into ever closer union with those
elder commonwealths which have
long placed high value upon their
individual integrity and independ-
ence. This "spiritual" union has
been augmented and firmly ce-
mented by something approaching
equalitarian commerce, which is
equally lucrative to both those
states which so recently assumed
the role of "mother countries" and
those degraded by the appellation
"colonial possessions',
In view of these observations,
then, particularly the last, I would
ask these questions: what would
we gain were we successful in
pushing the North Koreans back
acr ss the,, now 'famous -hlrty-
eigh tl parellel ), and again what"
would we actually lose were we at
last totally pushed from that di-
minuitive peninsula-extension of
Asia? To my mind we are truly
fighting a hopeless war - we must
now acknowledge the end of an
era.

ARNOLD BENNETT'S "The Great Ad-
venture," staged by the Department of
Speech at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre,
has been variously described as comedy, sa-
tire and farce. It is none of these, if success
is to be, considered a criterion. Certainly it
is not drama.
Briefly, a famous artist (Ilam Carve) is
mistaken for his expired valet in the weakly
constructed vehicle, and the dead man (Al-
bert Shawn) is thought to be the celebrated
artist. The deceased is buried with pomp in
Westminster .Abbey, but the, hoax is dis-
eovered-with' much thagz n mt& er'ave ,Ie
gins to produce new works bt art, the style
of which leads experts to the .truth.
The farcical element - mistaken iden-
tity - is present at the start. But there
is no progression, no evoluion of farce;
rather the element is maintained at the
same level.
Satiric lines are copious, but they are
far too' meek to give the play significance as
satire.
Nor can the play be called a good example
of high comedy. Only in the third act, vast-
ly better than the first or second, does the
author take advantage of the vivid charac-
ter Janet Cannott, then wife of IDam Carve.
Previous exploitations of the character are
infrequent.
The limited dramatic appeal is produced
by the question of Carve's identity, i. e., will
he be found out? The lack of drama is par-
tially due to Carve, a man who is rarely dis-
turbed or affected, in any manner, by cir-
cumstances, favorable or unfavorable. '
There were several departures from the

written version of the play, one of which
added to whatever slight enjoyment might
have been gained from the visual exper-
ience.
In the first scene of the third act, Janet,
successfully acted by Gloria Gene Moore for
the evening's top performance, was given
an added five minutes of delightful dialogue
as she cleverly disposed of Mrs. Albert Shawn
and her punctilious, dim-witted sons.
Happily, the lines were in character. How-
ever, another of the departures was present
in this scene and it was :UOotunt 'tl%
"thE alteiratiori was- efeatec L the nil j
John a'nd James Shawn were curates; the
director, Mrs. Claribel Baird, transformed
the moustached pair into floor walkers.wi.
The gentle chiding of the ecclesiastics
and the church, in general, was destroyed
by the mutation. In view of the sporadic
satiric jabs, an effort to destroy any of
the chaffing was in error.
There were several other minor insertions
and deletions in an attempt to improve the
play - for the most part they failed.
Warren Pickett did not create a distinct
characterization in Ilam Carve; however, it
must be granted that he had little to begin
with. Bennett's Carve is a nondescript indi-
vidual who does not react and therefore'
never emerges as a notable character.
Ted Heusel, most recently seen as Joe in
"The Time of Your Life," was reminiscent of
Lionel Barrymore in his execution of the
fun-loving American, Texel, but his perfor-
mance was convincing and enjoyable, though
not original.
More outstanding were the presenta-
tions of Jeanette Grandstaff in her credi-
5ble portrayal of the widowed Mrs. Albert
Shawn and Sheldon Slavin, the appealing
John Shawn whose sole task to "take
charge" of his mother.
Morris Winer doubled as Doctor Pascoe
and James Shawn; he dexterously created
distinct characterizations in -both cases.
Though seen only briefly, James Briley was
masterful as the dying Albert Shawn.
Norma Stolzenbach managed to convey
Honoria (charming name!) with ability, but
was once again guilty of addressing the au-
dience rather than the other actors. The
same error was committed by Mrs. Stolzen-
bach in her portrayal of the nurse in "An-
tigone and The Tyrant."

What we observe today seems to
indicate that additional regres-
sions are imminent, if not abso-
lutely unavoidable. I refer to the
tenuous hold the French now have
in French Indo-China, an extreme-
ly expensive hold as it costs the
French as much to retain it as
they receive in Marshall Plan aid.
The British position in Hong Kong
is scarcely more secure than that
of the French, for it can hardly be
d toather -100,009 troops
w dA iat.hfoxle ,
pansive legions of Mao Tse Tung..
And to mound, out this picture we
need but look at our own precari-
ous 'position n the vast continent
of Asia, now reduced to no more
than forty or fifty square miles.
No reasonable person after mak-
ing these few simple observations

Basis of U. S. Leadership

By THOMAS L. STOKES
ASHINGTON-It is fortunate in this
W time of crisis that we have in the White
House a man who is a thorough student of
American history and has been a shrewd
observer of that part of our history through
which he has lived, with its two World Wars
that strained our basic liberties but never
destroyed them.
Harry Truman refuses to be swept away,
when so many others are, by the provoca-
tions of the moment - and they are indeed
frustrating - to yield our basic civil and

of our existing laws covering espionage, sab-
otage and other activities of subversion car-
ried on by Communist agents, which are the
real danger. Court experience has revealed
certain deficiencies in these.
The real dangers, he said, "come, not from
normal political activity, but from espionage,
sabotage, and the building of an organiza-
tion dedicated to the destruction of our
government by violent means - against all
of which we already have laws."

ganda against. us a~nd'iouir wav of life. the~
