The Nature of Co-Existence:
Appeasement or Common Sense?

THE INTELLIGENT management of our foreign
affairs is currently hampered by the existence
of a number of stubborn, reiterated myths.
The most pervasive of these is the strange notion
that the goal of co-existence with the Soviet Un-
ion is equivalent to appeasement or treason. Only
occasionally is this myth specifically analyzed and
attacked, sometimes by men like Churchill, Adlai
Stevenson and Walter Lippmann.
But it is difficult to imagine any other reason-
able goal than that of co-existence. The alterna-
tives to co-existence are such strategic monstrosi-
ties as "liberation of Eastern Europe" (a Republi-
can slogan of the 1952 election), "drive to the
North" (the reiterated cry of Korean President
Rhee), and "let Chiang loose" (a fantasy of cer-
tain U.S. senators in which Formosa's 300,000 sol-
diers successfully conquer the Chinese land-mass).
All such proopsals, besides being militarily ab-
surd, threaten to precipitate World War III. Re-
publican orators, who are largely responsible for
them, may privately be quite willing to take
such risks. But to those who retain a sense of
reality, it is apparent that war is no longer an
extension of peace-time policy, no longer, a
means whereby goals otherwise unattainable are
attained. An American-Soviet war, fought with
such weapons as were recently detonated in the
Pacific, would mean the end of all goals. It
would mean that, unable to solve our problems,
we have decided to end the collective life of
humanity.
A policy of co-existence, therefore, is neither
treason or appeasement. It is defined negatively
by the rejection of World War III as a meaningful
device of policy, and positively by the belief that

it is possible for free societies to persist and de-
velop despite the existence of a hostile Soviet
power-bloc.
A policy of co-existence assiduously seeks the
means to prevent the expansion of Soviet influ-

M1asculinists would be noble of you to accept age to find time, do so under the

phery of the Communist world, but it
view the destruction of Soviet power by
sensible course. Such a policy requirest
cious use of all our resources--ideological

It is easy for Americans to fall into

as Chur-
the psy-

chology of complete victory that has character-
ized our military past. We are not used to pro-
longed frustrations, nor to the impossibility of a
decisive end to our difficulties.
Having never experienced modern mass warfare
on our own territory, many Americans can still
contemplate the possibility of armed conflict with
Russia without the shuddering recoil with which
Europeans view such a war. For many Americans,
the H-bomb is chiefly a spectacle for television
screens and newsreels, or only a tribute to our
skill and resources.
Hence the fear of other nations that we are
too susceptible to dramatic proposals involving
military counterstrokes and offering the illusory
hope of a satisfactory end to the Cold War.
It is to be hoped that the United States will
supplement its understandable yearning for a
quick end to ambiguities and complexities with
one of our traditional national traits-cool, Yan-
kee shrewdness.

To the Editor:
IN REPLY to Remington Russell:
I read with no amazement "the
letter to the editor of one Marjorie
Crockett, complaining that the
title of the special summer pro-
gram "Woman in the World of
Man" discriminates against women
by implying that it is basically a1
man's world."
In objecting to Miss Crockett's
objections, Mr. Russell indicates
that he obviously belongs to that
tribe of eager masculinists who
have always plagued the nation,
disrupting the thoughtful indul-
gences of harrassed human beings
by bashing in cultural windows
with thoughtless, steel-barbed at-
tacks on one-half of humankind.
It may be true that this is a
man's world simply because men
have control of the mass media.
It may be true too, as Mr. Russell
predicts, that it will always be a
man's world. But Miss Crockett has
every right to take up verbal arms
and disagree.
Now Mr. Russell don't you think
we males should encourage Miss
Crockett to let off steam under the
safety valve theory of democracy?
Surely Mr. Russell you can't be
afraid of Miss Crockett's "screech-
ing crew" of feminists. Come now,
regardless of what she screeches it
will always be, as you've intoned,
"A Man's World" I think you
should beseech her to screech to
show your fearlessness. In fact, it

It's a good thing for the world
that the "noble career" of father-
hood didn't deter Michelangelo,
Shakespeare, Freud, or Einstein
from engaging in certain sideline
activities.
Incidentally, the beginning of
wisdom is not adjustment. Rather,
self-wisdom leads to self-adjust-
ment.
-Larry Hulack
Culture, my dear Watson
To the Editor:
SINCE MR. RUSSELL has taken
offense at Miss Crockett's
"feminist screechings" allow me to
add a few "humanist screechings"
of my own to the din.
I am happy to admit that this is
a man's world; indeed, I am doub-
ly happy that Mr. Russell admits
it-that's half the battle won.
Whether or not it should be a
man's world is another question
and I for one favor neither the
way it is nor a complete reversal.
What Mr. Russell fails to com-
prehend is that the "noble biolo-
gical function of woman"-(sigh!)
-"Motherhood," has kept women
so busy taking care of the homes
and children of the Shakespeares
and the Einsteins that they sim-
ply do not have the time, and are
not given much encouragement,
for any further exploitation of
their talents. Those who do man-

Russell is the same type of person
that would ask of the Negro-
"Where are your Shakespeares
and Einsteins, etc?", (and I am
not forgetting that there have
been many outstanding Negroes
and women) without ever realiz-
ing, or even trying to understand,
that by mis-using biological dif-
ferences such as "she bears the
children" and "he has dark skin"
in order to create such myths as
"she should keep out of politics
and stay in the home" and "he
doesn't have the mentality to cope
mwiththe problem," Negroes and
women in this society have never
been given the same chance as
that of the white male.
Indeed it is unfortunate that
woman's biological function has
placed her in such a position that
she must give birth to such male
supremacists as Mr. Russell
spend half her lifetime keeping
his bib clean, so that he in turn
might lord man's accomplish-
ments over hers. The important
thing to remember is that this
same biological function has been,
in other societies, the reason for
female supremacy, and this might
lead.one to believe that aside from
being a biological role, it is defin-
itely a cultural one. It is encour-
aging to note that more and more
human beings are realizing this
fact.

Justice in the U.S. Jury System

AMIDST THE widespread discussion and contro-
versy over the school segregation cases re-
cently decided by the Supreme Court another re-
cen decision of that Court in the field of dis-
crimination has scarcely had the attention it de-
serves.
We refer to Chief Justice Warren's opinion of
May 3 reversing the judgment of a Texas court
which had sustained the conviction of one Pete
Hernandez for the murder of a cotton planter in
1951. The appeal was based on the fact that "for
the past twenty-five years there is no record of any
person with a Mexican or Latin American name
having served on a jury commission, grand jury
or petit jury in Jackson County."
Hernandez asserted that there were many per-
sons of Mexican ancestry in the country who
were qualified for jury service, but that they
had been "intentionally, arbitrarily and system-
atically" excluded.
This he claimed was a denial of the equal pro-
tection of the laws guaranteed by the Fourteenth
Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals rejected
this contention on the ground that "the equal pro-
tection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment con-
templated and recognized only two classes as com-
ing within the guarantee, the white race compris-
ing one class and the Negro race comprising the
other."
But Chief Justice Warren denied that the Four-
teenth Amendment was based on a "two-class
theory." "The exclusion of otherwise eligible per-
sons from jury service solely because of their
ancestry or national origin is discrimination pro-
hibited by the Fourteenth Amendment," he declar-
ed.
"The Texan system of selecting grand and petit
jurors by the use of jury commissions is fair on
its face, and capable of being utilized without dis-
crimination," the Chief Justice noted, but while the
law itself does not discriminate "those administer-
ing the law do."
"Circumstances or chance may well dictate
that no persons in a certain class will serve on a
particular Jury during some particular period,"

he observed, "but it taxes our credulity
that resulted in there being no members+
class among the over 6,000 jurors called
past twenty-five years."

to say
of this
in the

Hernandez did not ask for proportional repre-
sentation of Mexican-Americans on the jury, nor
indeed to have any of them necessarily there at
all. He only asked that his case be considered by
a jury from which all members of his group had
not been systematically excluded. "To this much,"
said Chief Justice Warren, "he is entitled by the
Constitution."
Some people have gone so far as to suggest that
this decision makes it necessary for a judge to
study the cases on his docket to determine what
nationalities or other minority groups are involved
and make arrangements with the jury commission
to make certain that members of those groups are
represented on the grand jury and trial jury pan-
els.
This is ridiculous. Texas has sixteen counties
without a single Latin-American resident, and for-
ty-four with fewer than fifty of them.
Such an interpretation of the decision would
make it impossible or nearly so to try a Latin-
American in those counties. And what of the
Catholics, Jews, Poles, Puerto Ricans and oth-
ers who live happily throughout our land, some-
times as a minority and sometimes as a ma-
jority?
They are all capable of being fair to themselves
and to each other if given the chance. All that is
needed to give them that chance and to comply
with the Supreme Court decision is a policy estab-
lished by the trial court at the time the jury com-
mission is empaneled that no person is to be
ecluded from jury service because of membership
in any national, racial or religious group.
Soviet propagandists have made much of such
examples of racial tension as could be found in this
country. We challenge them to acknowledge the
assurance of justice for members of minority
groups which this decision gives, and to make sim-
ilar provision for the millions of such people under
their rule.

KANSAS CITY - It was Harry
Truman's determination never to
let down a friend, even a contro-
versial friend, that contributed in
part to his illness.
His doctors didn't advertise it,
but for some time the ex-president
has been somewhat under the
weather. To them his sudden seiz-
ure in the wings of the "Call Me
Madam" came unexpectedly and as
entirely a surprise. They had tried
to get him to curtail his activities,
and strongly advised that he can-
cel a date he had made with his
old friend, James Petrillo, head of
the Musicians Union, to attend the
musicians' annual convention in
Milwaukee.
Months ago Petrillo had invited
Truman to be the union's guest of
honor and to play a little piano-
trumpet duet together. It was an
event calculated to make musical
headlines, and both Truman and
the head of the Musicians Union
were looking forward to it.
However, when Truman's doc-
tors told him he would have to
curtail his activities until. cooler
weather, he reluctantly sent Pe-
trillo his regrets. The show, he
said, was off.
But a few days later, Truman
overruled his doctors and sent a
telegram to Petrillo that he would
be on deck. Th show, he said,
"must go on."
Asked for explanation, Harry
Truman had a simple answer:
"As long as I live I will never
forget what Jimmy Petrillo and
his men did for me in the 1948
election. He was one of those who
did not let me down. And I can't
let a good friend like him down
now."
K.C.'s Most-Loved Man
Sentiment has changed a lot
around Kansas City regarding Har-
ry Truman. There was a time,
about two years ago, when the
little K.C. haberbasher who be-
came president of the United States
was criticized and scoffed at up
and down the streets of the city
that sent him to Washington. .
But not today. Today, he is the
most-loved man in Kansas City...
never settl down in the ol' home
town after the glamor of Washing-
ton, after a private yacht on the
Potomac, a retinue of servants
and bodyguards. But he has settled
down as comfortably as in an old
shoe. . .Some of Truman's friends
raised a little money to hire a
bodyguard for his days as ex-pres-
ident, but Harry hasn't needed
him, doesn't want him. . .And if
anyone around Kansas City ever
thought of touching a hair of Har-
ry Truman's head, no police could
ever protect him. ..HST once con-
fided to Garrett Smalley of the
Kansas City News Press the rea-
son why he didn't have air cooling
in the White House. "I don't mind
air cooling," he said, "but if I had
it in here people would stay too
long.".

to interfere with my work. You
have your friends too, some of
whom I may not approve of, but
I'm not going to ask you to give
up your friends."
Truman's loyalty to friends of
course was what caused him more
trouble than anything else in the
White House. Clayton got the job.
Notable Memory
Last January, about three years
later, I was in Harry Truman's
office in Kansas City. It is lined
withebooks,chiefly history books.
He had been reading the works of
previous presidents, even as he did
while in the White House, and was
dictating his own memoirs. Every
day, he said, he dictated a chap-
ter or so of his book, then had a
staff of research men, who had
been looking over his records, pull
it to pieces, check it backward and
forward, to make sure every detail
jibed.
The ex-president seemed relaxed,
happy, very much at home. He
didn't seem to miss the glamor,
the excitement of Washington at all
-which is rare for a man who
has spent arthird of a century in
politics.
Neither Mr. Truman nor I men-
tioned any of the unpleasantness
that had sometimes marked our
lives in Washington. But after the
TV interview was over, he made
a remark which indicates how long
his memory is and also indicates
some contrasts with the methods
of the McCarthy Committee.
"You don't remember it," he
said, "but a long time ago you
wrote a story about me. You said
a new committee had been formed
to investigate military prepared-
ness and efficiency. You said that
a new chairman named Truman
was in charge of that committee
and that he made it a point to
check on. the war effort without
upsetting the government, that he
took things up with the executive
branch of the government to see
if things couldn't be straightened
out privately before he resorted to
publicity.
"That was what I was trying to
do," continued Truman. I used to
go down to see Roosevelt and tell
him about a situation, and he
would take out a pencil and make
a note of it. And a week or so
later he would report that the situ-
ation was straightened out or
sometimes he'd say 'we haven't
been able to straighten it out, go
ahead and investigate.'
"Well you were the first to write
about our committee," said Tru-
man. "I haven't -forgotten it, and
that's why you're here today."
I couldn't help but think that the
man who inherited the chairman-
ship of the old Truman Committee,
one Joseph R. McCarthy, had cer-
tainly changed its methods today.

'The Beginning
Of The End?
By J. M. ROBERTS JR.
Associated Press News Analyst
American observers in Indochina
have been quick to interpret with-
drawal of the French forces' from
a large area of Tonkin as the be-
ginning of the end of France in
Indochina.
Taken against the background
of French plans as explained to
me a few days ago, however, the
development is neither surprising
nor quite so final as it might seem.
The French realized, after the
fall of Dien Bien Phu, two things:
1. They could not take another
defeat of that type.
2. It was very doubtful that they
could hold the entire Red River
Delta without outside help, mean-
ing from the United States.
They wanted to hold it all. But
they were unwilling to try, by
sending heavy reinforcements from.
France, on the mere hope that an
all-out effort would attract Allied
aid should the going be too rough.
They wanted action, not promises,
and they weren't even getting the
latter.
The new French government has
demonstrated,ehowevermthathit'
does not intend to be left com-
pletely helpless in truce negotia-
tions by yielding the Delta entirely.
It is ordering up new draftees in
France so that regular army units
can be sent to reinforce Hanoi.
This is not a preparation for a
runout. /
It is, rather, an expression of
determination to hold such a perim-
eter as may reasonably be expect
ed to prove defendable with the
forces available.
For three weeks it has been un-
derstood that this perimeter will
not extend far into the interior be-
yond Hanoi. The fighting that has
been going on recently has been
largely a delaying action while
this shortened perimeter, or en-
clave, could be prepared for an
all-out defense.
Holding on is extremely impor-
tant, and not merely a heroic ges-
ture. The enclave might be pushed
back very near the coast. But if
the French can stay in the Delta
for two more weeks, the monsoons
will make it likely they can stay
for two more months, during which
all sorts of things can happen in
negotiations.

GUN FURY with Rock Hudson and other scenic
outcroppings.
AM TWENTY TWO years old. I have been at-
tending movies regularly since I was about five.
I have seen movies in all kinds of theatres. I have
seen movies in theatres with plush carpets and
double balconies. Once I was in a neighborhood
theater so sleazy the rats crawled onto my lap
and stole my popcorn.
But never, in all those years, have I heen a movie
quite so unabashedly tedious as "Gun Fury."
I am a reasonable man. I ask very little of a
movie. But there are certain rules that even the
makers of bad movies must follow.
For instance, when the action calls for a chase
across the state of Arizona, the movie makers
simply must not use the same scenery through-
out. To see a bad guy hiding behind a rock in-
distinguishable from the one he used about half
a state back that-a-way is just too much for this
willing suspender of disbelief.
The makers of this movie managed to eke an in-
credible amount of mileage out of one little bitty
picturesque hill.
Again. If the scene we are watching is supposed
to be taking place at night, I find it annoying to
be shown green trees, red rocks, blue water, etc.
Even the brightest moonlight is so comparatively
weak that all colors fade to shades of gray.
I challenge the producers of this atrocity to step
outside on a moonlit night and identify the vibrant

fought on the wrong side in the Civil War and
has been a crazy little mixed up kid ever since,
It just isn't funny any more.
Acting: We connoisseurs of bad movies aren't
fussy. But as a rule, if an actor isn't capable of real
expression, he shouldn't try. He should just say
the lines any old way and get on with the shoot-
ing. Someone obviously forgot to tell Rock Hudson
about this.
Dialogue: There is a lot to be said for the old,
terse, They-went-that-a-way school of dialogue
writers. Those men recognized their limitations and
