Al Set For A Glorious 4th

Stevenson Draft

MATTER OFFACT
By JOSEPH and'STEWART ALSOP

WASHINGTON-For the first time, all
the pressures upon Gov. Adlai Steven-
son of Illinois coincide. Those who want
him to run and those who don't say that'
he must announce a final decision before
the Republicans nominate their candidate.
Stevenson is still the first choice of a,
majority of his party. He can be nomi-
nated on the second ballot and perhaps
the first if he will make a plain declara-
tion of his availability.
Democrats have been heartened in the
Stevenson matter by direct assurances that,
contrary to a virulent whispering campaign,
Cardinal Spellman has not expressed oppo-
sition to al Stevenson nomination and has
no intention of doing so. The whispers, of
course, were based on the governor's di-
vorce.
Such whispers, widely circulated, can do
great harm to a Democrat. A vital source
of their strength is the Catholics of the big
cities and industrial areas in the pivotal
states.
Governor Stevenson and his former wife
are both Protestants anid neither has re-
married. Their divorce was onthe grounds
of incompatibility. Mrs. Stevenson has
lately said she favored election of a Re-
publican president, a decidedly unchival-
rous gesture at this point which has ere-
ated considerable sympathy for her former
husband.
The Taft forces are blamed for the ru-
mors by Democrats. .They insist that the
Senator is afraid of the Governor of Illi-
nois but feels that President Truman or
any of the other Democrats can be beaten
by a vigorous campaign.
Vulnerable as they think Taft is, much as
they hope to profit from a bitter schism
among Republicans as a result of the Taft-
Eisenhower credentials struggle, most Dem-
ocrats are unhappy when they contemplate

a ticket against him which is minus Set-
Most of them, no matter what the Presi-
dent says, would accept a civil-rights
compromise in order to put a Stevenson-
Russell ticket in the field. If the Senator
from Georgia does not want to be vice-
president they are prepared to promise
him Secretary of Defense or any other
position of comparable distinction.
In shuffling and reshuffling their cards
to find fitting opposition to a Taft-MacAr-
thur slate, Democrats seek first of all a
good campaigner. Senator Taft says many
things, now, that seem ludicrous in the
light of his voting record, especially on for-
eign policy, but he says them with such
vigor, such finality, that the average unin-
formed voter could easily swallow them.
That the newspapers call attention to such
inconsistencies is that "conspiracy" of which
the Senator complains.
Right or wrong, there is personal force in
Taft. It must be met with personal force.
His opponentmust also be able to stake out
elemental premises and argue plainly from
them. If he lets Taft choose the ground,
he is lost.
Democrats concede the same need of a
good campaigner against General Eisen-
hower if the Taft steamroller fails. They
can capitalize upon his ignorance of do-
mestic affairs only with an informed
voice not too closely identified with the
mistakes made by the administration.
Their basic trouble is that their candi-
dates other than Stevenson are either too
young or too old. In the shadow of the
mighty oak which was Roosevelt few trees
grew. Stevenson, in the prime of life, asso-
ciated with the great principles on which
five elections were won but not with their
errors as shown in Washington, fills the
bill. Nobody else does.

DRXXAMA

WASHINGTON-Secretary of State Dean
Acheson's little noticed mission to Eur-
ope has a simple, central object. This is to
persuade our frightened, ill-defended and
divided European Allies to accept the risk
of general war, rather than to abondon Ber-
lin to renewed Soviet pressure.
There have been all sorts of signs in re-
cent weeks that a new Soviet aggressive
move may be in the offing, and on bal-
ance a second Berlin blockade, ostensibly
initiated by the East German puppet gov-
ernment, has seemed the most likely move.
Shortly before Acheson left for Europe,
he took the leading part in forcing through
the National Security Council, a crucial
policy decision on the American response
to such a move against Berlin.
Acheson took the position that Berlin
could under no circumstances be abandoned
to the Soviets, and the Council agreed. The
Council also agreed that another airlift.
undertaken with no end in sight, would be a
defensive and inadequate response, especially
since the Soviets can now wreck an airlift
simply by jamming the radar at the Berlin
airfields. This left just one way to hold,
Berlin-by breaking any blockade by the
direct use of military force.
This does not mean, however, that if a
blockade is imposed on a Monday, an armed
convoy need necessarily be ordered to break
it on a Tuesday. Sufficient stockpiles of food
and other necessities have been built up in
the Western sectors of Berlin so that there
is more room for maneuver than there was
when the first blockade was imposed in 1948.
Western Berlin now has sufficient stocks to
carry the city, without an airlift, for about
six months. Therefore a military showdown
need not come immediately after a blockade
is imposed.
THUS ACCORDING to present intentions,
the first step by this country-and if
Acheson's mission succeeds, by this country's
Allies-would be to order full mobilization.
In brief, the Western Allies would publicly
prepare to fight a war, if necessary, rather
than abandon Berlin.
Full mobilization by the West during
the time provided by the West Berlin
stockpiles would, of course, telegraph the
punch to Moscow. But telegraphing the
punch is thought to be actually desirable,
simply because this would give the men
in the Kremlin time to think again, and
the policy-makers still believe that the
Soviets wish to avoid a full scale war.
This breathing spell would also provide
time for final negotiations with the Rus-
sians. But these negotiations would be far
different from those undertaken in 1948 by
Gen. Bedell Smith, then Ambassador to the
Soviet Union. For this time the Western
spokesman would be armed with the warn-
ing that unless the blockade were lifted,
military force would be used to break it.
Then, if these last attempts to negotiate
failed, Western troops would be ordered to
open the land corridor between Berlin and
the West.
* * *
THIS, IN BROAD outline, is the American
position in Berlin, and it is Acheson's
task to persuade our Allies to agree to this
position. Obviously, this is an immensely dif-
ficult task, calling for all Acheson's per-
suasive abilities. To break a Berlin block-
ade by armed force clearly involves the
gravest possible risk of war, and our Allies,
especially the French, simply are not pre-
pared to fight a war.
Nor, to put it bluntly, is this country.
Indeed, there is in some quarters in the
Pentagon strong opposition to the Ache-
son-sponsored Security Council decision
on Berlin.
Even if the Western Allies, like the Pen-
tagon, should reluctantly agree in prin-
ciple to the American position on Berlin, it
requires no very vivid imagination to see
how hard it would be to make this agree-
ment stick in the face of an actual block-
ade. During the brief breathing spell grant-
ed by the Berlin stockpiles, tremendous pres-
sures would certainly build up in Europe,

and even in this country, to abandon Ber-
lin rather than to risk a general war.
It is on precisely these pressures, of
course, that the Soviet rulers will count
if they take the momentous decision to
blockade Berlin again. No informed offi-
cial doubts that free Western Berlin is like
a cancer in the Soviet system, and that
the Soviets will go to almost any lengths
to excise the cancer, if they believe it
can be done short of world war.
Yet no informed official in this country-
or in Britain or France for that matter-
doubts that abandonment of Berlin by the
West would be an intolerable disaster,
amounting virtually to outright defeat in
the cold war. And those who have been right
in the past believe that if our nerves hold
steady, we can still avoid this disaster, with-
out general war, if the Kremlin does strike
at Berlin again.

ON THE
Washington Merry-Go-Round
with DREW PEARSON
WASHINGTON - IKE NOTES - There's been less gloom around
Eisenhower headquarters. His managers, once in the doldrums,
now look happier, think Ike has made inroads on Taft delegates. A
total of 75 is the number they think he has wooed and won during
charm-exuding talks-. . . The General himself is still suffering from
a split personality. Sometimes he veers to one policy, sometimes to
another. Perhaps this is because he knows that to win the nomina-
tion he has to be conservative enough to please the Republicans; yet
to get elected he has to be liberal enough to please Democrats .. .
Ike claims he doesn't want to know what his staff is doing.
(Sometimes things would be a lot better off if he did know.)
He even said he didn't know what the good news was that Sen-
ator Lodge brought him the other day, though a lot of other
people knew it was the support of Michigan's potent Arthur
Summerfield, which may swing the large Michigan delegation ..
Mamie Eisenhower, completely new to politics and expected to
be difficult, has been just the opposite. She's cooperated with photo-
graphers, newsmen . . . Ike also has done everything his managers
have asked, continues in excellent spirits.
IKE AND PRESS - If Eisenhower is nominated it won't be
through any fault of his staff. They have pulled in opposite direc-
tions, differed on policies, missed important cues . . . One major
boner caused Arthur Vandenberg, Jr., son of the late great senator,
to turn in his resignation. However, it was withdrawn, and, in the
end, the boner turned out OK ...
This was the private Ike luncheon held by Washington
trained seals-Charles Lucey of Scripps-Howard, Bert Andrews
of the New York Herald Tribune, Scotty Reston of New York
Times, Fred Collins of Providence Journal, et al. . . No wire ser-
vices, no networks, no news magazines were invited. Naturally
they hit the ceiling .. .
Harry Luce, Time-Life publisher, hearing about the off-the-
record lunch, remarked to Palmer Hoyt of the Denver Post: "I'll call
up my man, Ed Darby, and find out what happened." But his man,
Darby, had been barred. Naturally, Luce, a strong Ike-man, wasn't
happy . . . The ensuing storm from those who were snubbed gave
the luncheon more headlines than if Ike had made a speech. His
speech would have cost money for radio and TV time. Jealousy be-
tween newsmen cost nothing.
FRANTIC CONGRESS - During the hot-weather hot-temper
wind-up of Congress, Senator Humphrey of Minnesota got into a
backstage tiff with majority leader McFarland of Arizona, told him
his leadership "stunk," that he was letting McCarran of Nevada run
the Senate .. .
Most lobbyists took a licking when the Senate and House
conferees locked themselves up to iron out the controls bill,
Senator Maybank of South Carolina took the lead in plugging
loopholes the lobbyists had driven in the House bill...
One lobbyist, Al Payne of the real estate crowd, kept constant
vigil outside the conference door buttonholing legislators as they
came out. In the end, several rent control loopholes remained in
the bill.
COMBAT BONUS - The extra pay for GI's in front-line
trenches proposed by this columnist two years ago, passed the Senate
OK, but got stymied in the House by Carl Vinson of Georgia and
Dewey Short of Missouri
It calls for a combat bonus in Korea similar to that paid in
World War II, also similar to that paid today to submarine crews
and airmen for extra risk ,. . Byrd of Virginia also helped stop
the bonus, but Senators Monroney of Oklahoma, Long of'Lou-
isiana and Moody of Michigan are making a last desperate effort
to pass it ...
Despite opposition by southern coal operators, Chairman Graham
Barden of North Carolina has been pushing the mine-safety bill. The
members of his Labor Committee who opposed are four Republicans
--Gwinn, N.Y.; Wint Smith, Kans.; Morton, Ky.; Werdel, Calif. Also
three Democrats-Wood, Ga.; Lucas, Texas; Tackett, Ark.
DEMOCRATIC DOINGS - Cleveland's Demo boss, Ray Miller,
wisecracks that Ohio's Governor Lausche "wants so much to be like
Abraham Lincoln that he won't be satisfied until he's assassinated."
... Republicans claim the Dems should get a new campaign slogan:
"honesty is no substitute for experience." . . . Demo Chairman Frank
McKinney is trying to eradicate the Mason-Dixon line inside the
Democratic party. He is being extra considerate of visiting Dixiecrats,
has assured key Southern senators they will be consulted before draft-
ing the Chicago platform ..
McKinney's wooing of Mississippi Dixiecrat J. P. Coleman,
however, didn't sit well at the White House. Coleman was recog-
nized by McKinney as new Mississippi committeeman even though
he's a nonloyalist, potential bolter ... Strom Thurmond, Dixiecrat
candidate for President in '48 this year will be a delegate at
Chicago ...
Speaker Sam Rayburn and Vice President Barkley have been
working quietly to head off any Dixiecrat bolts. The Mississippi dele-
gation appears the most mutinous ...

GOOD NEWS FOR STALIN - The Senate-House appropriations
cuts will knock 700 planes out of next year's budget. That's 50 per
cent more than the Communists have shot down in the Korean war,
The man responsible for the severe air force slash is-Assist-
ant Secretary of Defense W. J. McNeil. The Senate Appropria-
tions Committee sent him a list of questions to find out how
serious the cuts would be. Mc-
Neil got the answers from the
air force, which warned that
the cuts would be a dangerous
security gamble. But, insteadof .j++ 4. t.

TWELFTH NIGHT, presented by the
Department of Speech at Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theater.
IN SPITE OF THE humidity, which was
considerable, the tried and true veterans
of the Speech Department did well by
Shakespeare last night, thus launching a
promising-looking summer series. For some
reason, tropical weather seems to bring out
the best at Lydia Mendelssohn.
The vehicle, "Twelfth Night" is prob-
ably Shakespeare's finest comedy. While
it lacks the drama of "As You Like It'
and the invention of some of the minor
comedies, it achieves a greater unity and
a more delicate wit than most of the
other plays. Its characters are broad,
yet not without their subtleties. Its mood

of good performances carried the produc-
tion admirably.
Richard Burgwin, as Sir Toby Belch does
probably the best job in his long service
with the Speech Department. Although he
is costumed too grotesquely, Burgwin's in-
terpretation of the bibulous rogue is con-
sistently appropriate and not complicated
by the occasional excesses into which he has
often fallen. As usual, his understanding of
the language is expert.
Dolores Rashid is a good Viola, effectively
reaching some of the nicer nuances of the
character. Her voice was the best in the
production, but it crept away from her once
or twice into an overtness that seemed too
smug, even for Viola.
Nafe Katter plays another part he was
made for-Malvolio. His discovery of the

The Air Force has warned that,
if the steel strike continues,.jet-

60 days . . . The House has cut
civil-defense funds from $600,000,-
000 down to a measly $37,000,000
-a reduction of over 90 per cent.
This means that our civilian se-
curity program against atom war-
fare, including the training of
3,000,000 civil-defense volunteers,
will be virtually put out of busi-
ness.
