Winston -Churchill: The Mature
Look in World Diplomacy

"It's a New Hybrid"

11

lI

ALTHOUGH HE HAD already given us ample evi-
dence of his superior statesmanship, Sir Wins-
ton Churchill has again shown us how to resolve a
dispute between nations by closing the impending
split between Great Britain and the United States.
To do so, however, he was forced to compromise
more than half-way his country's position on the
Red China issue. That he possessed the courage to
give in for the sake of free world unity is a first-
class indication of his understanding of internation-
al politics. And another blotch on the record of
American diplomacy.
Senators like Wiley of Wisconsin, Ferguson-of Mi-
chigan, and Knowland of California may take pride
in successfully compelling Britain to back down un-
der a thinly veiled surrender of "This is not the
moment to reconsider UN membership for Red
China."
But theirs is the same childish attitude the
United States has displayed in world politics for
quite some time. While singing the praises of
compromise, this country steadfastly refuses to
move back a single millimeter. It just has to have
its own way all the time, even when it is not
sure what it wants. Instead, the other nation is
expected to see things our way.
Churchill compromised because he understood
this attitude, and knew the United States would not.
His decision to save free world unity for the while
by compromising further than he would have in
less troublesome times illuminates the American
brand of diplomacy by contrast.
True, there was another reason why he compro-
mised. Britain is not a powerful nation like the gi-
ants of the East and West. To become separated
from the United States would be distinctly danger-
ous, which the United States knew as well as Chur-
chill. It was this knowledge that allowed us the con-
fidence to wait for Britain's submission.
Dealing with an immediate or potential enemy in
this way usually ruins chances for any peaceful re-
sults. Great Britain has been a friend, but it's hard
to see it in the way we deal with her. It seems that
her friendship remains only out of considerations of
survival.

But she has, no doubt, lost what little respect
she may have had for America, both because of
the manner in which we handled this disagree-
ment and because of our approach to the Red
China problem in general.
Eventually, and this Britain must know, Red Chi-
na will be admitted to the United Nations. The long-
er we put it off, the harder it will be for us to accept
it when we are forced to face reality. A nation with
the obvious power and influence of Red China can-
not be kept out of the UN. It has enough annoyance
ability to needle us into membership in order to
stop her, yet with no real assurance that she will
stop at anything. But, by that time, our backs will
be against the proverbial wall.
Meanwhile, the United States proceeds merrily
with ringing denunciations of Britain for thinking
naughty thoughts and of the UN, probably for be-
ing around where Red China can envy membership
in it. America's position on the matter is not just
idealistic; it is completely juvenile. Like the five-
year-old who refuses to go to school because Johnny
sits next to him.
If we could have but a moment to step back and
view ourselves from the outside, we would be dis-
mayed. We would be dismayed exactly like those
who now have the displeasure of witnessing our
folly from the outside. And this is an important
point. For, in order that the free world triumph, the
battle must be won peacefully. Russia can conquer
the world with A-bombs, but America must spread
a way of life. That we can never do as long as we
display our manners the way we have on the Red
China issue and on the disagreement with Britain.
In short, the United States must grow up to
recognize reality.
One last word: I hate to say this, but this atti-
tude has been most prevalent since the Republicans
took over the White House. Blaming it on one party
is not the best approach, but that is what the Re-
publicans have been doing ever since they found
they weren't doing so well. It's about time they stop-
ped pouting and began something realistically con-
structive, like recognizing Red China.

WASHINGTON - Few people
have ever seen the budget of the
United States. Some people think
it's merely an ethereal set of fig-
ures that Congress debates about
every year. Actually, however, it's
about the size of a New York
phone book and just about as dull.
The last few pages, however, are
extremely significant and ought to
be paraded on the Senate floor
during the debate on so-called
farm subsidies.
For t h e s e figures show the
amount of subsidies paid to far-
mers, veterans, businessmen, and
others. Highest subsidy, of course,
is listed as paid to veterans in the
form of bonuses and hospitaliza-
tion, totaling $4,214,000,000 in 1953.
What may surprise some people,
however, is that the subsidy paid
to businessmen is about twice as
much as that paid to farmers.
Farmers got $523,000,000 for soil
conservation, price supports, and
other government help in 1953;
whereas businessmen got $1,216,-
000,000.
This aid to business, incidental-
ly, was not to small businessmen.
It was to upper-bracket business
which has yelled so loud about
"creeping socialism" yet spent so
much money lobbying Congress in-
to voting more money for "gallop-
ing favoritism."
They i n c 1 u d e "helpless little
groups" like the U n i t e d States
Steel Corporation, the big utility
companies, and some of the big
shipping companies.
Humphrey Got Tax Write-Off
Here, for instance, are some of
the subsidies big business has been
able to obtain-in contrast to far-
mers' price supports.
The M. A. Hanna company, one
of the biggest iron and steel hold-
ing companies in the USA,largely
owned and operated by George
Humphrey before he became Sec-
retary of the Treasury, got more
than $22,000,000 in tax subsidies
just a few weeks before he en-
tered the Cabinet. The Hanna Coal
and Ore Co., one of his sub-
sidiaries, got a 75 per cent depre-
ciation on an $11,345,000 iron-ore
investment in Minnesota and an-
other 70 per cent tax write-off on a
$22,000,000 nickle plant in Oregon.
The two plants were permitted
to depreciate 70 and 75 per cent
of their value in five years instead
of about 25 years.
These tax write-offs were rushed
through during the last few weeks
of the Truman administration so
Humphrey's company would not be
embarrassed by asking for them
when he became Secretary of the
Treasury later.
Today the new tax bill gives the
same kind of quick depreciation
tax write-offs to other types of big
business, and Randolph Paul, for-
mer general counsel of the Treas-
ury and author of "Taxation in the
United States," has told congress-
men this tax subsidy will cost the
public $40,000,000,000 in the next
17 years. In contrast, when a far-
mer builds a barn he gets no tax
write-off, but must spread his de-
preciation over a period of about
30 years.
Utility Subsidies
The big utility companies spend
an average of half a million dol-
lars a year on their lobby to in-
fluence Congress. At least that's
the amount they register officially
with Congress. Today this appears
to be reaping dividends. One util-
ity combine, Dixon-Yates, has just
put across by special order of
President Eisenhower a 25-year
contract with the Atomic Energy
on _m ._ inn _nni th nn neiin

Atomic Energy, calls this not
"creeping socialism" but "gallop-
ing federal favoritism."
In contrast the farmer is guar-
anteed no 9 per cent return on his
investment. He has been guaran-
teed 90 per cent of the price paid
during a cross-section average of
previous years.
More Gravy
Here are some of the other sub-
sidies to business to which the U.S.
budget refers when it shows that
business annually gets about twice
the subsidy given to farmers:
Certain airlines get between $70,-
000,000 and $95,000,000 annually for
carrying the mail. On top of this
the taxpayers have paid for radar,
lighting beacons and other safety
aids for the airlines totaling $21,-
361,040 in 1951, $13,007,035 in 1952,
and $7,000,000 in 1953. Taxpayers
also paid $73,931,733 for personnel
to operate these safety aids in
1951, plus $80,484,761 in 1952, plus
about $105,000,000 in 1953. In addi-
tion, another $37,000,000 and $16,-
000,000 went for runways and con-
struction work at airports in 1951-
52 and another $19,821,00 in 1953.
The shipping companies also get
an average of around $30,000,000 a
year in subsidies to operate their
vessels; the United States Lines
got a construction subsidy of $18,-
225,000, plus a National Defense
subsidy of $24,061,000 for building
the SS United States; while the
Grace Lines and Moore - McCor-
mick are being voted subsidies for
our new vessels by the current
Congress.
These vessels will be turned over
to the United States in time of war
and this subsidy policy may be a
wise one. Also, it is important to
keep U.S. airlines operating around
the world. Jut likewise, the Amer-
ican farmer has to feed a good
part of the world in case of war
and he, like the shipping and air-
plane companies, can't contract
and expand his economy for peace
or wars without facing economic
chaos.
High on Totem Pole
Indirect subsidies given to Amer-
ican business, though not listed by
the U.S. budget, also include such
things as giving war factories to
big business for a song-such as
per the gift of the government steel
plant at Geneva, Utah, to U.S.
Steel for only $47,175,000 though the
government paid $191,326,000 when
private industry flatly refused to
build,
And last year the Eisenhower
administration decided to sell the
government-owned rubber factor-
ies to private industry, though the
taxpayers shelled out millions for
them, andt hough they made profit
for the government one year ago
of $73,000,000.
These are some of the reasons
why the farm belt has turned sour
on Washington and why farmers
feel unhappy when Jack Davis,
former right-hand man of Secre-
tary of Agriculture Benson, de-
scribes the farmer as "high man
on the totem pole."

MR. MOLOTOV and Chou En-
lai have, between them, suc-
ceeded in turning the clock back
nearly to the point at which the
Geneva conference started. They
insisted last week, on dragging the
Indo-China discussion out of the
relative calm of restricted sessions,
and used the plenary sessions of
Tuesday and Wednesday simply as
a forum for propagandist diatribes.
They have, in fact, reverted to
their original and wholly unprom-
ising practice of speaking, not to
their fellow delegates, but over
their heads. Inevitably, they drew
tart retorts from Mr. Bedell Smith,
M. Bidault, and even Mr. Eden;
but this clouding of the atmosphere
of debate was not ny any means
the most depressing feature of the
week. If symptoms of mortal para-
lysis are now rapidly appearing
because the Communist negotiators
have deliberately stiffened the pres-
entation of their terms.
The Soviet and Chinese govern-
ments now appear to be explicitly
and finally committed to what, in
the language of an older imperial-
ism, would have been called a
"forward policy" in Indo-China.
Not content with the opportunity
for the Vietminh to consolidate its
gains that would be provided by
a cease-fire and a military re-
grouping, they call for broader po-
litical negotiations that would open
doors for the extension of Ho Chi-
minh's influence in southern Viet-
nam. Not content with that, they
insist that the footholds the Viet-
minh has gained in Laos and Cam-
bodia must be respected, and that
the shadowy "resistance govern-
ments" in those two states - must
he L j'jpt.pp At df interna-

If these positions are to be main-
tained, there is no hope of reaching
an agreed and satisfactory settle-
ment in Indo-China, however long
Mr. Eden extends his efforts,
and whatever new formula Mr.
Casey may bring from Australia,
via Delhi. The Communist terms
are not new; but while the re-
stricted sessions and private meet-
ings at Geneva continued, there
was at least a slender chance that
they might be modified. After this
week's speeches, that chance has
dwindled to vanishing point. Wha't,
short of a deus ex machina, can
now save the conference from be-
coming another, and a more in-
tolerable, Panmunjom?

PRISONER OF WAR, with Ronald Regan
F THIS PICTURE were about any subject less
unpleasant than war atrocities, its "document-
ary" pretentiousness and general third-rateness
might be good for a few laughs. As it is, however,
there is nothing very funny about mass sadism,
especially as it was executed in Korea, and the
perverse relish that the makers of this film have
found in the subject make "Prisoner of War" uni-
quely offensive among movies in this genre.
They make not only the error of fancying that
reality is art; they simulate the "reality" with

how the colonel establishes that this particular
dog means anything to the hero is left in doubt.
It was also to be expected that there would be
some attempt to show alleged Communist "brain-
washing" techniques. No such effort is made, all
indoctrination here being accomplished by the gau-
diest kinds of physical torture. It is therefore not
surprising to find, in terms of the picture, that the
Communist score for obtaining converts is an ab-
