Washington Merry- Go-Round

SOMEONE asked the other day why there
is this picture of an ape on the editorial
page of The Daily.
The reason is that perhaps people need
to be told pictorially that in this corner
of the universe the problem is not how to
.build a machine, but what to do with it,
just as the ape's problem is not how to
get his hands on a typewriter, but what
to write.
The picture may be appropriate as a re-
minder that Man, in spite of his glorious
works, is essentially a hairless primate with
a puzzled look.

B-50 Crash
mysterious B-50 bomber crash near Le-
banon, Ohio, that cost the lives of all 16 of
its crew significantly omit any reference 'td
how many "parachuted to safety." If para-
chuting would have been attempted, prob-
ably those lives could have been saved.
The B-50 aircraft exploded after it
plunged into the ground. This means that
the plane was intact on its descent and,
unless it was spinning out of control or
was too near the ground, successful para-
chuting might have been done. And if
what the two farmer witnesses said about
the plane appearing to be in trouble in
a minute or two before the crash is true,
this would have allowed ample time for
the 16 airmen to buckle on their para-
chutes and jump.
It is a possibility that the parachutes were
carelessly thrown about in the plane, as is
too often the case, with no regard to their
necessity in case of an emergency.
Air Force regulations state that the para-
chute shall be worn at all times during flight,
but if for reason of convenience it cannot
be worn, it should be put in a safe and easily
accessible place, and in case of an emer-
gency, to be quickly fitted on and used.
When there are no survivors of a plane
crash there is always room for spebulation,
and witnesses' accounts of a crash are often
contradictory in their interpretation of the
But if this catastrophe occurred because
-of a laxity of the Air Force regulation
concerning the wearing of parachutes, it
would imply that a slackness of air safety
rules is being employed. And once a pri-
mary slackness becomes apparent in these
rules--whether civilian or military-it is
not long before other safety rules are ne-
It would appear that a more stringent en-
forcing of this ruling should be made.

WASHINGTON-Republican senators who
have been yammering about "Commun-
ist spies" in the State Department got a ver-
bal straight-arm from John Foster Dulles,
the Department's top GOP adviser, at a pri-
vate luncheon arranged by New Jersey's GOP
Senator Alex Smith.
Dulles was picked by Truman, somewhat
against his own political judgment, in order
to pacify the Republicans. At first, Truman
had hesitated about putting him in the State
Department because Dulles had been so vi-
felt that way are now out of the Department
tion in running for the Senate last fall.
However, Acheson insisted, and Truman fin-
ally acquiesced. Now it looks as if Republi-
can senators aren't even satisfied with their
ex-colleague, Mr. Dulles.
At the start of the luncheon meeting,
Dulles shed his diplomatic gloves and
bluntly reported that the Department of
Defense, not the State Department, was
chiefly responsible forethe unarmed con-
dition of Southern Korea.
Dulles, who would have been Dewey's Sec-
retary of State, also criticized military lead-
ers-without specifically mentioning Gen-
eral MacArthur-for inaccurate intelligence
reports to President Truman regarding Ko-
rea. The State Department foresaw the cri-
sis several months in advance and urged
armed aid to Southern Korea, Dulles re-
ported, but was overruled by Defense Secre-
tary Johnson and military advisers.
Senator McCarthy walked out of the
luncheon just as Dulles got to his main
topic-alleged Comnunist spies in the
State Department.
"I see Senator McCarthy has left," Dulles
told his fellow Republicans. "His absence
will enable me to touch on something with;-
out embarrassing him. I want to say that
I have never seen a known Communist in
the State Department and I do not know of
anyone there with Communist sympathies or
* * * *
"IN THE PAST there has been a group in
the Department that was disturbed by
the failure of Asiatic countries to appreciate
the serious threats of Communism," Dulles
continued. "This Group felt that a dose of
Communism would wake up China and be
the best stop-gap against Communist ex-
pansion over there.
"However, I think that most of those who
felt that way are now out of the Department
and those who are left do not hold respon-
sible positions any longer."
At this, Senator George Malone of Nevada
literally jumped from his chair and bellowed:
"What you say confirms Senator Mc-

Carthy's charges! Do I understand you to
say that such people helped to shape pol-
icy in the State Department and that to-
day American boys are dying in Asia as a
result of the dose of Communism Korea
is getting?"
"I said no such thing," fired back Dulles,
flushing. "You know I didn't. That is youi
conclusion. These people did not determine
State Department policy on Korea or any
other country. Also, as I have reported, most
of them are no longer with the Department."
"Who are they?" hotly pursued Malone.
"Name them."
"I did: not come up here to indulge in
personalities, but to give you senators a
report on the situation in the State De-
partment today with regard to these
charges about spies," replied . Dulles.
"There are no spies or Communists in
the State Department. All the people em-
ployed there are good Americans who
want to promote the best interests of their
At this point, McCarthy returned to the
luncheon meeting and Malone shouted: "R-
peat what you have just said, Mr. Dulles!"
Whereupon McCarthy asked: "Was Dean
Rusk one of this group you referred to?"
The indirect slap at Rusk, Assistant Sec-
retary in charge of Far Eastern Affairs, in-
furiated Dulles.
"I want you to understand, Senator," he
replied, "that Dean Rusk is and always has
been a fine public servant. The country owes
a great deal to him."
For half an hour, Malone, Hickenlooper
of Iowa, McCarthy, Jenner of Indiana, and
Mundt of South Dakota pounded the un-
happy Dulles. In the end, Malone grimly
remarked: "You can't sell the State De-
partment to us."
Whereupon Wayne Morse of Oregon, who
has no love for the isolationists, commented
"Foster, it ought to be plain to you by.now
the State Department doesn't have a chance
with the Republicans."
York Republican, is now urging that the
Post Office Department be turned ove to
private enterprise so government bureaus
will have to pay postage. Believe it or not,
this is the same Congressman who has take*
advantage of his free mailing privileges to
mail literally tons of propaganda around
the country.
Last year alone, Gwinn mailed out 2,450,-
000 copies of his speeches against the Tru-
man administration without paying for a
single postage stamp. This saved him, and
cost the taxpayers, $73,500 in three-cent
stamps-or six times his salary for the
year. In other words, it cost the taxpayers
the salaries of seven Congressmen merely
to deliver Gwinn mail.
Yet he now has the nerve to advocate
turning the Post Office over to private en-
terprise in order to stop the "BureaucratS'
from getting free mailing privileges.
* * *
FEW AMERICANS have any realization
how consistent and vituperative Mosr-
cow's propaganda is against the U.S.A.
For instance, there are no fewer than 27
anti-American plays showing in Moscow
right now. Yet, if American newsmen, who
try to write the news out of Moscow, should
mention this, their dispatches would be cer-
This brings out another thing which few
newspaper readers realize about Moscow
news. There is hardly a dispatch filed out
of Moscow which is not heavily censored.
That's why every U.S. newspaper publish-
ing a Moscow dispatch should automatically
carry the warning: "Censored."
Perhaps if Congressman John Taber of
New York, Senators Harry Byrd of Virginia
and George of Georgia, plus other economiz-
ers, would take a trip to Moscow and get
one brief glimpse at the extent of the anti.
American propaganda, they would be will-
ing to spend a few dollars on U.S. propa-

learned that Russia has a much larger navy
that we ever suspected. The surface ships
have been hidden in the Black Sea, while
the subs are chiefly in the South Pacific and
Baltic. The thing that worries U.S. war
chiefs most is that a Russian sub might sink
an American troop ship - which would be
another sinking of the Maine and mean world

Old Joe's Mistake

WASHINGTON-Adolf Hitler never un-
derstood about us Americans. Neither
does Joe Stalin. Now, old Joe must learn
the hard way - and it will be a hard way
for us, too, we who so much wanted peace
and decency in the world, and only that.
It's too bad about old Joe. Looking at
his picture, one might think, if you could
take off that uniform and dress him
otherwise, of an old man sitting in a
chimney corner with his grandchildren.
But old Joe could never sit there content-
edly with his pipe and talk to children.
He has no pleasant memories to recall
that would delight children. It's too bad for
the world that this man who never had
any fun, has come, at this particular time
in history, to control the destiny of hundreds
of millions of people.
They, and hundreds of millions of others
who are normally imbued with kindness
and merry spirits, now must seize a gun,
with the result that the whole world be-
comes regimented, either as soldiers or
civilians, hopeful that the holocaust will
not engulf us all again, but fearful - and,
in our fear, victims of all sorts of imag-
inings that create suspicion and hatred
of other people who no longer are people,
but have become distorted ogres.
Old Joe and his grim crew of ego-maniacs
have done that to us, the Russian people and
all the other people of the world, just as
Adolf and his crew did it before.
* k u.
OLD JOE, after all his devious manipula-
tions at infiltration, and taking over the
governments and lives of other people, has
finally come to the inevitable step in a career
such as his and those of his fellow plotters.
Korea is the ultimate act in the career
of a peasant boy in revolutionary Georgia,
living a hard life, writhing at the auto-
crat'c rule of an emperor in St. Peters-
burg, caught up in plotting that regime's
overthrow, maneuvering his way to the

top through the years at the expense of
cruelty and bloodshed, and ending up in
the very image of the thing he started out
to crush. Such is the pursuit of power un-
While he was busy at his plotting - har-
assed, hunted, in hiding often - another
human being, several years younger in an-
other Georgia thousands of miles away in
a another country, was playing first base
on a neighborhood scrub baseball team, and
doing all the things that our boys do. A
personal symbol of others of his kind in
Iowa, Texas, Maine, and our other states.
And thus it had been for boys living and
having fun in a free country for generations
Some came up in hard circumstances.
Some of these, like Joe, had the revolu-
tionary spirit. But it was tempered with
humility in most cases, seeking changes
in orderly ways and, over the years, get-
ting them. Some of ours in hard circum-
stances became buccaneers of business and
exploiters, fighting their ruthless way up.
Others became political adventurers. But
they were never allowed to get too big for
their britches, any of them, because of
that checks-and-balances attitude which
exists among a free people, as well as in
its governing institutions.
Joe could never understand that about
us. Maybe now he is getting a glimmering
of its results, even if he doesn't understand
why. We hope he wakes up fully before
it is too late. For finally our instinct for
justice under law is joined with that of
many other nations in a world federation
for justice under law, the United Nations.
Joe might as well know now that we are
determined to make that work, that we are
ready to play our part in that customary
implement of justice under law, which is a
police force to uphold it, no matter what
the sacrifices.
