MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP
WASHINGTON-There is a fair chance
that President Truman may soon decide
to administer a particularly painful hotfoot
to the Congress. .In the last few days, Eco-
nomic Stabilizer Eric Johnston's staff has
been busily studying a project for abandon-
ing all attempt to control meat prices. If
Congress passes really unworkable control
legislation, Truman may simply decontrol
mneat, and place on Congress the responsi-
bility for giving him legislation which can
be made to work.
The nature of this Presidential hotfoot
can be understood from the fact that meat
makes up a full 15 per cent of the total cost
of living. Already meat prices are in the
stratosphere. If there are no controls on
meat at all, sooner or later half a frankfur-
ter will be likely to cost a king's ransom.
Then the Congress, which has been so not-
ably carefree about the interests of the
consumer, would begin to hear from the
housewife in deadly earnest.
As this Is written there are signs, to be
sure-quite possibly because word of the
hotfoot project has begun to get around-
that Congress is having last - minute
qualms. A more workable law than seemed
at all likely a few days ago may in the
end be passed. But in view of the very
real danger of disastrous inflation, the
law will only seem reasonable in compari-
son with what might have been. And in
any event, the handling of the inflation
problem tells a good deal about the state
of the nation.
In the first place, for many months after
the Korean war began, the Administration
was blindly complacent about the inflation
threat. The authority voted by Congress in
the early days of the crisis was simply not
used, which now gives the Congressional
enemies of controls a welcome opportunity
to place all the blame on the Administra-
tion. Then, after a sudden change of heart
early this year, the Administration promptly
began asking too much instead of too little.
Some weeks ago, all the Congressional
leaders, headed by Vice-President Alben
Barkley, made a pilgrimage to the White
House to deliver a warning. They told
President Truman that the kind of all-out
controls program then being prepared, in-
cluding three meat price rollbacks, did not
have a ghost of a chance. They urged Tru-
man to take half a loaf as better than none.
Realistically, they reasoned that to sub-
mit an all-out program would invite violent
opposition and crippling amendments. At
first, Truman seemed to agree. Then, at
the instance of such whole-loafers as price
boss Michael DiSalle, he changed his mind.
An all-out controls program was adopted,
and the worst fears of the Congressional
leaders were promptly realized. This teeter-
Ing from one extreme to another is one
symptom among many of weak Administra-
tion leadership.
S S * S
WHAT HAS HAPPENED also tells a .good
deal about the state of Congress. The
lobbies, with the meat lobby out in front
but the cotton bloc actually in the driver's
seat, have had a field day. Moreover, Senate
Majority Leader Ernest McFarland not only
led a majority which did not in fact exist.
He and Senate whip Lyndon Johnson also
actively opposed vital parts of the legisla-
tion they were expected to guide through
Congress. Under the circumstances, it seems
something of a miracle that any controls
legislation at all was approved.
The fact is that every major economic
group-which means just about every one-
has been acting on the principle of getting
it while the gtting is good. Unless we are
a good deal luckier than we deserve to be,
we shall rather soon find that what we

are getting is pretty thin and watery stuff.

ON THE
Washington Merry-Go-Round

The Week's News
. IN RETROSPECT .. .

WITH DREW PEARSON

WASHINGTON-U.S. diplomats have been
puzzled over what could be the most
interesting political development inside Rus-
sia since V-E Day-namely, a series of
moves by the Kremlin urging friendship with
the United States.
Taken alone, these moves would not be
important. Taken together, they could be
significant. Diplomats are inclined to view
them as a trap to lull the U.S.A. into less
mobilization. However, the overtures have
continued so steadily that they cannot be
ignored.
Flrst overture was the Malik truce
proposal in Korea, followed by a frank
talk between Ambassador Kirk in Moscow
and Deputy Foreign Minister Gromyko in
which he indicated that the Chinese might
not want peace, but gave Kirk the names
of the two generals in Korea most likely
to talk truce.
Following this, Soviet diplomats through-
out the world suddenly turned up at the
4th of July parties staged by American
embassies to celebrate Independence Day.
Hitherto they have boycotted 4th of July
parties.
There have also been little hints dropped
to the diplomats of other nations, that the
U.S.A. and U.S.S.R. could end the cold war.
These have not been taken seriously.
Now, however, comes an article by ex-
Ambassador Alexander Troyanovsky broad-
cast over the Moscow radio urging friendship
with the United States.
TROYANOVSKY RESURRECTED
THAT TROYANOVSKY has been a gen-
uine friend of the United States there
can be little doubt. He served here as Am-
bassador when the United States and Russia
resumed diplomatic relations under Roose-
velt, at which time he was a bridge-playing
favorite of various Senators and conserva-
tive Washingtonians. In fact, he got to be
so friendly toward the United States that it
probably caused his removal.
Never a member of the Communist Party,
Troyanovsky was called back to Moscow and
demoted to a relatively obscure job in the
Foreign Office. It is believed that his de-
motion was caused by the No. 2 man in the
Soviet Embassy, Constantin Oumansky, who
wanted his job and who reported to the
NKVD that Troyanovsky was more pro-
American than Soviet. Later Oumansky did
get the Ambassadorship, being subsequently
killed in an airplane accident in Mexico.
Meanwhile, Troyanovsky has been liv-
ing in obscurity in Moscow-until a few
days ago, when he contributed an article
on "Why I Believe in Soviet-American
Friendship" to a new Moscow magazine,
"The News." Obviously Troyanovsky could
not have written this without the official
O.K. of the Kremlin. Nor could the article
have been broadcast over the Moscow
radio without some carefully laid strategy
behind it.
What that strategy is, U.S. diplomats do
not know. It may be a trap; it could be a
change of heart-though they doubt it.
However, they are studying these moves
carefully. And for whatever it may be worth,
here are the salient portions of the Troya-
novsky article as picked up by the State De-
partment from the Moscow radio:
* . *
EX-AMBASSADOR WRITES
"THE SOVIET UNION and the United
States have a common boundary.' It
passes through the Bering Strait between
Chukotsky and Alaska, or rather between
Big Diomede Island and Little Diomede Is-
land. The Big Diomede belongs to the So-

viet Union, and only a few miles away lies
the Little Diomede, a U.S. possession.
"The fact that the two great countries
have a common boundary is often for-
gotten, and the general belief is that they
are separated by boundless expanses of
ocean. Still more often is it forgotten
nowadays that the two nations have com-
mon interests, the belief being unfortun-
ately encouraged that the Soviet Union
and the United States are divided by an
ocean of insuperable differences and ir-
reconcilable antagonisms. Is that so?
"Relations between nations are not the
product of a single day. They are the result
of a long historical process to which many
factors contribute, economic, political, geo-
graphical, an dso forth. Well, neith the
history of Russo-American relations nor
the history of Soviet-American relations,
(in a word), neither in the past nor in the
present, provides any warrant for the as-
sertion that the two countries are divided
by irreconcilable antagonisms.
The common boundary of the two coun-
tries has never witnessed a frontier incident.
History furnishes no instance of Russo-
American rivalry on land or on sea. After
the two world wars it has been the lot of
mankind to experience, in both cases the
two nations fought on the same side of the
front.
* * *
MUTUAL INTEREST BETWEEN
COUNTRIES
"JT IS NOT the existence but rather the
absence of profound conflicts of interests
that distinguishes the relations between the
two great countries with their far-flung
territories and vast natural resources, that
render them self-contained and economical-
ly independent of the rest of the world.
What is more, we know from history that
the two peoples have always been drawn to
each other, have always been mutually in-
terested in one another. This was true in
the past, and it is true now.
"Russia's progressive men followed with
deep interest and sympathy the struggle of
the American people for independence.
(Radishev) earned Catherine's wrath be-
cause of his admiration for the American
Revolution and his profound respect for
America's great scientist and statesman
Benjamin Franklin. It is well known, too,
how highly (Pastel), Bouleyev), (Pahovski)
and other Russian (leaders) prized the
American Revolution. They even studied
the American Constitution, which in its day
was a progressive development.
"Naturally enough, these sympathies were
not shared by Russia's rulers. Catherine II
refused to recognize the young American
Republic. But, on the other hand, Catherine
refused to support England's hostile policy
toward the United States.
* * .
AMERICAN EFFICIENCY ADMIRED
"RUSSIANS have always admired Ameri-
can efficiency, the ebullient creative
energy of the American people, and their
democratic spirit. Americans have always
had a deep respect for Russia's cultural at-
tainments and appreciate and esteem our
distinguished writers and artists. The na-
tional interests of the two countries have
never once conflicted through the long his-
tory of their relations and often enough
have harmonized. This has been proven in
the distant past, in the recent past, and it
is true today.
"The second World War is still fresh
in the memory of both the Soviet and the
American peoples. In that war, their ties
of friendship were still closer knit. Yet
we know that in those years when the
Soviet people were engaged in a truly
titanic struggle against Hitler's hordes,
there were men in the United States who
built their hopes and plans on the expec-
tations that the Soviet Union would be
weakened and exhausted, and said so
aloud.
"This was not only an offense to the Rus-
sians. It was an offense to the American
people, who were following with deep sym-
pathy and concern the Soviet people's strug-
gle against their common enemy, Fascism,
and for the salvation of civilization and
progress.

POLITICAL DIFFERENCES NO BAR
"DIFFERENCES of political system and
government can be no bar to the de-
velopment of friendly cooperation to the
advantage of both countries. This was borne
out during the war. Cooperation is imper-
iously demanded by the political and eco-
nomic interests of the two countries. The
Soviet Union is engaged in a gigantic pro-
gram of peaceful construction, and peace-
ful construction always makes for broader
economic ties with the rest of the world.
. "As to the American people, I have had
the opportunity to observe them closely,
and I know that they entertain friendly
feelings for our people.
I cannot believe that they countenance
the idea of armed aggression against the
Soviet Union, so widely propagated in the
United States at the present time. I share
the view, expressed by President Roosevelt
in a message he sent to M. I. Kalinin on
July 10, 1941, shortly after Hitler Germany
attacked the Soviet Union. The American
people are disgusted at armed aggression.
They are bound to the Russian people by

Local...
THE GI Era ended this week in the nation's colleges with the passing
of the deadline for enrollment under the GI Bill, but the glitter
of the veteran's reign in higher education was dulled slightly by a
national scandal involving $20,000,000.
In a surprise announcement, the General Accounting Office, Gov-
ernment auditor for some $14,000,000,000 spent for the GI Bill, re-
vealed to a House committee that overpayments had gone to schools
as a result of "irregular and apparently fraudulent" practices. The
Veterans Administration, states and "unscrupulous operators and
veterans" were blamed for the gigantic expenditure waste. .
The report of the GAO, based on a survey of more than 1,200 in-
stitutions in seven states, uncovered overpayments for padded school
expenses, improperly charged items and increased tuition rates for
vets in two-thirds of the schools investigated.
University officials quickly denied that the shoe fit here.
But in spite of the accusations, vets could point to their influence
on campuses throughout the country as being one of the most bene-
ficial forces in the history of higher learning.
At the University, the post-war influx of service-hardened stu-
dents was responsible for great strides in both scholarship and extra-
curricular activities. Maturity and sobriety replaced rah-rah as stu-
dents undertook a new role of responsibility in the University com-
munity.
LETHARGIA-Three University students, a Boston artist, a
mongrel-puppy and a raft named "Lethargia" attracted nationwide
attention this week as American households kept close tabs on an
experimental journey down the Ohio River.
A series of calamities culminated in the dog's death when the
raft overturned near Moundsville, W. Va., but the two bachelors and
two women escaped unharmed.
Led by sociology student Mary Ellin McGrady, the group is at-
tempting to discover the effect on mind and manners of a cruise under
a set of rather strange conditions. Campus observers have commented
that a little less emphasis on the sociology and more on navigation is
in order, but newsmen aren't complaining.
National . .a
ADM. SHERMAN-Admiral Forrest P. Sherman, 54-year-old
Chief of Naval Operations and heir apparent to General Omar Bradley
as Chief of JCS, died of a heart attack in a hotel room in Naples this
week. Sherman had just completed negotiations for the use of Span-
ish bases for European defense and was in the process of a general
defense tour when the attack came.
CONTROLS-After a weary week of arguing, Senate-House con-
ferees finally agreed on a watered-down controls bill. The Senate has
already approved the bill and the House is expected to act on it to-
morrow. It is assumed that President Truman will sign the measure
with many complaints about its inadequacy to cope with the balloon-
ing economy.
MAC ARTHUR-Sounding more like a presidential candidate
every time he opens his mouth in public, old soldier MacArthur
showed his grim determination not to "fade away" in a full-blown
attack on the Administration before the Massachusetts legislature
last week. The table-thumping legislators were able to ignore the
General's inconsistencies in their enthusiasm for his histrionics.
ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY-The House Public Works Committee
managed to shelve the St. Lawrence Seaway Project for the nth time
in the last 20 years after a bitter closed-door debate. Canada may
take on the task alone to provide much-needed power for Ontario.
CRIME-A Federal grand jury indicted Frank Costello, Joe
Adonis and Frank Erickson on contempt charges this week. The
sometime television stars face long sentences and fines if convicted
for their refusal to answer questions before the Senate Crime Investi-
gating Committee last March.
ACHESON TROUBLE-After a sharp and bitter debate, the
House turned down a "get Acheson" amendment to the State De-
partment appropriation bill. Republican House members wanted to
word the bill so that the President couldn't pay anyone with Acheson's
particular status and background.
International
KOREA-UN and Communist negotiators were deadlocked over
the question of where the buffer zone between the two halves of Korea
should be located, as they entered their thirteenth conference at 8
p.m. today, Ann Arbor time. The twelfth meeting adjourned with
the Reds insisting that the zone be based on the 38 Parallel and the
Allies holding fast to their contention that any buffer zone agree-
ment should be centered on the present battle line which is north of
the Parallel. -Barnes Connable and John Briley

Vaughn House ,., ,
To the Editor:
LAST WEEK we learned of the
University's plan to convert
Victor C. Vaughan House into aa
esidence for coeds. We sincerelyI
regret the necessity for the use oft
Vaughan House as a housing unitj
for women. Here is why.
We believe that VaughanI
House, in the years that we haveI
lived there has been a potentI
force in building up loyalty, spirit,
and devotion to the Residence
Hall system and came closest, we
feel, to fulfilling completely the
ideals set forth in the Michigan
"ouse Plan.
Our roots are deep at Vaughan
House, but in a broader sense, it)
was not the house itself which ac-
complished this enviable record
of achievement, but the group of
men who labored diligently to
make the most of the setup and
who learned to work, live, and
plan together.
Through neither the fault of
the University nor the men of
Vaughan House, a situation has
arisen where we find that we must
leave in order to make room for
increased women's enrollment.-
However, we feel that the Uni-
versity would profit to retain the
men of Vaughan House as an in-
tegral group-a group which we
feel has been a great credit to
the Michigan House Plan and to
the University in the past andj
would continue to be so in the fu-
ture.
Seemingly, the men of Vaughan
cannot be kept intact, but we be-
lieve that the Men's Residence
Hall Administration and Vaughan
residents can work out a satisfac-
tory solution so that a winning
combination will not be broken
up.
We will try to represent the
men of Vaughan House in seeking
a way to keep its men as an in-
tegral group, working with the
residence hals management, and
pledge ourselves to do our best to
accomplish that end.

DORIS FLEESON:
Ise Boom Stirs Interest

WASHINGTON - Apathy afflicts every-
' thing in Washington during the dog
days except the Eisenhower-for-President
boom.
President Truman thrust at the General
again and an Eisenhower enthusiast among
the Republicans, Sen. Lodge of Massachu-
setts, began the task of counteracting the
anti-Eisenhower indispensable-man propa-
ganda of Sen. Brewster, a Taft supporter.
The unique aspect of the story is that
while no one is yet able to say that he
knows from the horse's mouth that Ike is
or is not a Republican or a Democrat, poli-
ticians in both parties continue to leer se-
ductively at him.
The President was asked about a report
that Jacob M. Arvey, Illinois Democratic
National Committeeman and boss of Chi-
cago, said he had two Presidential candi-
dates if Mr. Truman did not choose to run
-Sen. Paul Douglas and Gen. Esnehower.
Mr. Truman, chuckled that Mr. Arvey had
had ideas before. He was referring to
Arvey's leading role in the effort to sub-
stitute Ike for Truman in 1948.

who stands in some danger of burning out
his health in his mighty project.
* * * *
SEN. LODGE, to whom Gen. Eisenhower is
only indispensable for the rescue of the
Republican party from the too narrow na-
tionalism that he fears, assured Senators
that Europe is practically crawling with
U.S. military genius. He is understood to
have mentioned the Eisenhower chief of
staff, Lieut. Gen. Alfred Gruenther, and
Lieut. Gen. Lauris Norstad, European Air
.Commander. The late Admiral Sherman
was originally on his list, too; in fact,
Sherman is understood to have been Eisen-
hower's first choice as his successor.
A point generally made by all the returned
travelers is that Gen. Bradley, now Chief
of Staff, has come close to writing himself
out of Allie dcommand, at least short of
hot war, in his best seller, "A Soldier's
Story." Gen. Bradley's frankness, notably
about British Field Marshal Montgomery,
was described as more entertaining than
diplomatic.
Sen. Lodge was equally impassioned over
the necessity of continuing foreign aid as
