The Lesson of Indochina:
Russia's Strategy of Revolution

"I May Just Yank Out The Whole Thing"

I

go

WHETHER or not Mendes-France is successful
in concluding an acceptable Indochinese truce,
certain elements in the situation are relatively con-
stant and provide materials for some basic reflec-
tions.
It is unfortunate that in the United States the
label of "appeasement" has often been attached to
the French Premier's efforts to end the Indochinese
War. Mendes-France is clearly not an "appeaser."
Appearing before the French National Assembly
in his bid for the premiership, he stated that he
would not accept office if his election depended on
Communist votes.
For many years, Mendes-France has been a severe
critic of his country's policy in Indochina, which
he has characterized as unable to achieve either
victory or a reasonable settlement. He has said that
if the current peace negotiations fail, he will recom-
mend the sending of draftees to Indochina. Existing
French law forbids the dispatch of any but Regular
Army troops to the Far East-a course which Men-
des-France has repeatedly attacked in the past.
During the Geneva conference, the Premier has
consistently rejected Communist attempts to obtain
guarantees against an Asian security system simi-
lar to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, as
the price of an Indochinese settlement.
What is it, then, that leads such a man to seek
so earnestly for an Indochinese peace-one which
will, if obtained, leave Vietnamh partitioned be-
tween Communists in the north and the French in
the South?
It is the realization that the military, eco-
nomic and psychological costs of the Indochinese
war have long exceeded any benefits that France
and the non-Communist world can obtain from
its prosecution.
The total cost in money of the Indochinese war
--which is 8 years old-has exceeded the value of
all American aid tendered to France under the
Marshall Plan. That France has been "bled white"
by the war is not an idle phrase, when one con-
siders that a third of that nation's young military
officers, recently graduated from the French
equivalent of West Point, has been killed in In-
dochina. This is a frightful toll among those on
whom France must depend for military leader-
ship, the cost of which she will pay for years to
come.
In domestic politics, the intense distaste with
which the French people regard the war in Indo-
china has given the large and well-entrenched
French Communist Party a powerful talking point:
they have managed to assume the role of peace
makers, and have made much political capital out
of their fierce denunciations of the war.
That the Communists' attitude towards Indo-
china springs not from their love for France but
rather their allegiance to the Soviet Union is not
as obvious to many Frenchmen as the fact that the
Indochinese war is clearly a liability which the non-
Communist parties have dealt with in a persistently
irresolute manner.
s* . s.
ALL THESE evil effects spring chiefly from the
hopelessness of France's military situation in
Indochina. No such surge of intense zeal fires the
non-Communist native population as motivates the
forces of Ho Chi Minh, the Communist leader.
A ghastly and unforgiveably short-sighted French
decision, after the Japanese defeat in World War
II, to impose again the tradition of exploitative col-
onialism in Indochina is what lies at the root of

the tragedy on which Mendes-France is striving
to draw down the final curtain.
In negotiations in 1946 at Paris with Ho Chi
Minh, the French proved unable to adjust their
policies to the huge groundswell of revolt, affirma-
tive nationalism and anti-Western feeling that
arose after World War II and continues to run
high in Asia. They made no significant concessions
whatever to' native demands for progress towards
self-government.
In 1946, Ho Chi Minh was neither a Commu-
nist nor committed to the policies of Moscow, but
primarily a native leader striving to obtain a
measure of self-determination for his people and
an end to colonial exploitation. His experience
with French intransigence sent him back to his
country embittered and despairing. His only
course, as he saw it, was to join with any move-
ment which promised aid in the struggle against
renewed colonialism. This the Communists were
only too eager to provide.
The Communists in Indochina thus captured
and still retain the slogans of independence, surging
nationalism and protest against foreign exploitE
tion. All the ardor and dedication that comes with
the cause of popular rebellion against oppression
was enlisted in the service of the greatest single
enemy of human freedom existing today-the Com-
munist Party of Russia. World history has rarely
witnessed so agonizing and pitiful a contradiction.
The West would be foolish to persist in attempts
to implement a policy that has so tragically mis-
carried. Only military force keeps the French in
Indochina, and it is most probable that a contin-
uation of the war would result either in a prolong-
ed stalemate or the total defeat of the French army.
Hence the sad but practical wisdom of obtaining
as advantageous a settlement as is possible, and
seeking a stabilization of the Indochinese situa-
tion.
* * * *
GREVIOUS as this turn of events has been, the
West may profit from its experience. We need
only glance 4t the contrast between Indochina
(where the French hung rigidly on) and India
(where the British surrendered sovereignty and got
out). Much of Indochina, whether or not Mendes-
France obtains a truce, will pass wholly into the
Communist world. But India, while avoiding total
commitment to the West, vigorously combats do-
mestic Communism, seeking to develop its resources
as an independent nation and within a democratic
framework.
The West must never again attempt to per-
petuate dying traditions. We must realize that the
Russians' most valuable technique of aggression
is their ability to pose as liberators and foment
revolution in the name of reform. We must not
permit the Communists to usurp that urge for
freedom and human dignity which was brought'
into the world by the functioning democracies
of America, Great Britain and France, and to use
it for the purpose of imperialist expansion.
If we mean to defend freedom, we must do a
world-wide job of it-and most imperatively in
those areas where underdevelopment, long exploi-
tation, and mass poverty have created irresistable
demands for new political and economic institu-
tions. It is intolerable that the Kremlin should con-
tinue to profit by its adroit and cynical manipula-
tion of Asia's cry for freedom.

WASHINGTON - U.S. policy re-
garding Indochina has flip-flopped
almost as rapidly as John Foster
Dulles has shuttlecocked across
the Atlantic. However, out of these
trans-Atlantic trips and the latest
Dulles report to President Eisen-
hower the following policy now
seems in vogue:
To some extent, we are back in
somewhat the same .position re-
garding Indochina as last April
when Vice President Nixon warned
that we might have to send Amer-
ican troops to Indochina.
Reason is that we have now made
a definite commitment to back up
France in the Indochina War if the
Reds keep on fighting. Though we
have talked about this in the past
we have never made such a com-
mitment before.
What happened was that Prem-
ier Mendes-France told Dulles that
if the United States wanted a stiff
no-surrender policy in Indochina
we would have to share the re-
sponsibility. Dulles agreed. He al-
so agreed to a line partitioning
Indochina. But most important of
all, he agreed to back France all-
out if the Reds don't accept a rea-
sonable line.
Simultaneously, Dulles became
convinced that Mendes-France was
a sincere patriot, was trying to
salvage stability from the political
les got an extremely important
pledge from the French Premier-
namely, that France would join
the United European Army.
All this did not take place, how-
ever, without some unpleasant mo-
ments, and until after Mendes-
France had issued one of the blunt-
est threats ever served on a re-
cent American secretary of state.
The French Premier issued a
virtual ultimatum that either Dul-
les would come back to the Gen-
eva Conference or France would
pull out of the North Atlantic Pact
and adopt a neutralist attitude in
Europe. U. S. Ambassador Doug-
las D i11on, who conveyed the
French warning, told Dulles that
Mendes-France was not bluffing,
that he had better make the trip.
That was why the secretary of
state packed his baggage and
caught a plane to Paris in three
hours, later sending his undersec-
retary of state, Bedell Smith, to
Geneva.

ing Committee and sibustituted a
motion of censure. . .It was only
a few weeks ago that Majority
Leader Knowland made a speech
proposing the right to remove Sen-
ate committee chairmen when they
didn't cooperate. His speech was
then aimed at Langer of North
Dakota. Now that a resolution is
on the Senate floor to remove Mc-
Carthy as chairman, Knowland has
changed his mind.
Latin Yanqui
Twenty-two years ago a South
American ex-president arrived in
New Y o r k, penniless, an exile
from his country. He was Carlos
Davila, who, after serving four
years as ambassador in Washing-
ton, had taken over the presiden-
cy of Chile, finally was ousted. Un-
like many Latin-American presi-
dents, he left with no "nest egg,"
no secret funds in a foreign bank.
He had run a strictly honest ad-
ministration and left Chile with
only the clothes he had on.
Davila settled in New York and
made a living at his original pro-
fession - journalism. He became
one of the great interpreters of the
United States to Latin America,
pointed out that crime news did
not properly represent the USA,
that we had idealism, culture, mu-
sic, opera, literature.
Only three or four times during
his two decades in the United
States did Davila return to his na-
tive Chile. Once, when his wife,
dying of cancer wanted to return,
President Roosevelt put a flying
fortress at Davila's disposal, and
his wife arrived just in time for
one last breath of Chilean air.
Now married to an American,
Francis Adams of Virginia, Davila
has sometimes suffered because in
Latin America he is considered a
"Latin Yanqui." And the State De-
partment in turn thinks he's too in-
dependent.
But after a year in Chile as
editor of La Nacion, Davila came
back to Washington last year to
become secretary general of the
Office of the American Republics.
This can be one of the most im-
portant jobs in the Western Hemi-
sphere-the job of welding the
Americas closer together. Under
Davila's direction it should go for-
ward with vigor.

Interpreting
The News
By J. M. ROBERTS JR.
The decision at Geneva to par-
tition Vietnam has many parallels
with the decision at Munich which
gave Czechoslovakia to Hitler.
Overwhelming in the long run
was the hard fact that the free
world was not in position to wage
an all-out defense of Indochina
without running the very grave
risk of a general war, and a gen-
eral war in Asia which was the
last thing it was in a position to
undertake.
When the Russians were found
to have mobilized a powerful ex-
peditionary force too near Japan,
choices had to be made which
were just as bitter as the choices
given France and Britain in 1938.
There is, however, one vital dif-
ference between the Allied posi-
tion then and now-that is, there
is a difference if the Allies go
ahead with their plans for South-
east Asia.
When Chamberlain returned to
London in 1938 he spoke publicly
of "peace in our time." But his
"umbrella salute" was to become
the symbol of retreat, and an invi-
tation to new Hitler aggression.
In those days, Britain and France
clung to the hope that Hitler would
keep a bargain.
Now the Allies are dealing with
an enemy which has demonstrat-
ed time after time and almost
without exception that it will not
keep a bargain, and there is less
chance to retreat into false secur-
ity.
Britain, France and the United
States are reported agreed that
they must now go ahead in South-
east Asia with a twin for the
North Atlantic Treaty Organi-
zation.
The object is to avoid, as Eu-
rope has avoided since 1948, be-
ing faced with another decision
such as that regarding Indochina.
So far, the Communists have not
challenged real strength and de-
termination, nor moved in the
face of such an ultimatum as is
represented by NATO.
The Communists are, however,
establishing another festering sore
similar to those of Germany, Aus-
tria and Korea: If an end to the
last postwar shooting produces
any complacency among the Al-
lies, if they do not go through
with SATO, then more and greater
trouble will not be long in coming.

SENATOR COOPR'S significant
differences with the Adminis-
tration position on electric power
in the Tennessee Valley ought to
give some pause to promoters of
the private contract. Mr. Cooper
has made what is probably the
clearest and simplest explanation
of the issues. He has pegged his
opposition to the Adminstration
plan on the most fundamental dis-
crepancy: an abuse of the author-
ity of the Atomic Energy Commis-
sion. Actually, under the Adminis-
tration plan the AEC would be used
to contract for private power, not
directly for its own needs, but for
Tennessee Valley Authority custo-
mers in the Memphis area. Fur-
thermore, there has been no com-
petitive bidding on the contract
which the President has directed
the AEC to enter into with the
private Dixon-Yates group.
Both Senators Cooper and Pas-

tore noted that this contract would
have the effect of rewriting by ex-
ecutive action the basic functions
of TVA as determined by Congress.
Mr. Cooper's proposal for an al-
ternative means of financing TVA's
needs for additional power plants
through the sale of bonds seems
to us to have much merit. But any
change in the scope of TVA opera-
tions ought to be made openly by
Congress. There is special reason
to hold up any precipitate action,
as Senator Cooper suggested, in
order to give the new TVA admin-
istrator, when he is appointed, a
chance to survey the situation.
An amendment by Senator An-
derson would block the Dixon-Yates
contract unless it were rewritten
to eliminate reimbursement forI
Federal income taxes and to pro-
vide that power be furnished di-
rectly to the Atomic Energy Com-
mission. The Administration will be
very foolish indeed if it permits
this amendment to come to a vote.
For either the Administration will
lose, or it will hand the Democrats
a potent campaign issue, not only
in the Tennessee Valley, but else-
where in the country where public
power is in question. From the
standpoint of the Adiministration's
prestige it would be far better for
the President to compromise by
accepting Senator Cooper's sugges-
tion that the whole matter be
shelved pending study by the new
head of TVA.

AT THE MICHIGAN .. .
Johnny Guitar with Joan Craw-
ford and Sterling Hayden
This horsopus is a fitting adjunct
to the Women-in-the-World-of-Men-
kick the University is on this sum-
mer. It is essentially the tale of
a battle between a nice bad girl
(Joan Crawford) and a real louser
of a "nice" girl (Mercedes Mc-
Cambridge).
The
Americans
IF ONE THINKS in broad terms
of the role played by the United
States since the war, three things
stand out.
First, the United States has done
more than any other country to
guarantee peace in the world.
Secondly, America remains the
foremost country in the w o r 1 d
whose ideal, in the words of its
own Constitution, is to "promote
the general welfare and secure the
blessings of liberty to ourselves and
our posterity." Thirdly, the United
States has done more than any
country in the world to help others
and secure their health, prosperity
and welfare.
Do we not sometimes too easily
assume that, because the United
States did these things, she was
bound to do them anyway? The
assumption is false. It would have
been, easy for all the Kennicotts
to retire to their Gopher Prairies,
as they did after the First World
War, and there forget about all
the torments and troubles in the
distant continents of Europe and
Asia. Or it would have been easy
for America to take the MacArthur
line and "go it alone."

CURRENT MOVIE

The rest of the large cast is
male but they don't really do much.
They either ride with the vengeful
posse headed by Miss McCam-
bridge ordodgebthe vengeful posse
with Joan Crawford.
Ostensibly the hero of the
piece is Johnny Guitar. To
be sure, he saves Joan Craw-
ford of a death worse than
fate at the hands of the posse
but the episode seems to be
invented only to give him some-
thing to do.
The rest of the time Joan is
thoroughly capable of taking care
of herself in the World of Men
and Johnny Guitar hulks in the
background, muttering something
like "You want I should throw him
in the river, boss?" at every cri-
sis.
Mercedes McCambridge is, It
anything, even more at home in
a man's world. She persuades a
large posse of obviously reluctant
men to hang our girl Joan,
Emmy, as played by Miss Mo-
Cambridge, is a splendid villain-
ess. She is just crazy enough to
account for her nastiness but not
so crazy that we can forgive her
for being such a pot.
This filum is one of the new
high-toned westerns that have
recently been galloping into the
wide western spaces opened up
by movies like Shane and High
Noon.
But whereas Shane elevated the
cowboy cliche to mythic stature
and High Noon presented a moral
delemna that could stand independ-
ently of its wild and woolly locale,
Johnny Guitar is content simply
to take the standard bill of goods
and act it to the hilt amid posh
surroundings.
Offered with the feature is a
Disney short; a Fantasia-like treat-
ment of Dorsey's quintet. It is exe-
crable.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETINj

+ MUSIC+

At Rackham Auditorium . . .
Stanley Quartet; Gilbert Ross and Emil Raab,
violins; Robert Courte, viola; Oliver Edel, cello.
Program: Beethoven Quartet in B-flat major,
Op. 18, No. 6; Villa-Lobos Quartet No. 14; Bee-
thoven Quartet in A minor, Op. 132.
THE STANLEY group played another of its var-
ied and interestingly arranged programs last
night. It gave us an opportunity to revise or con-
firm certain opinions of the new Villa-Lobos work
(commissioned by the University and first per-
formed earlier this year), and to rehear the two
Beethoven quartets which effectively epitomize the
early and late styles of this composer.
The Beethoven B-flat quartet is perhaps one of
the most imaginative of the Opus 18 set. Its the-
matic material is fresh and striking, and the whole
composition is written with the assurance of one
who has already attained a mastery of his craft.
And, despite what you will hear in oversimplified
summaries of Beethoven's creative work, there is
not the least possibility of confusing this (or, for
that matter, any of the other Opus 18 quartets)
with those of Haydn or Mozart. There is an un-
mistakeable striking out in a new direction in this
quartet-a realization on Beethoven's part that it
was not for him to continue a great tradition, but
to form one of his own.
The performance of Op. 18, No. 6 is a difficult
one for me to criticize. I made the unhappy dis-
covery that there are areas in Rackham Lecture
Hall where one can hear comparatively little
sound from the stage. I sat near the right side
(facing the stage) of the aduitorium, and what
I heard was a small, rather pinched sound-the
aural equivalent of looking at an object through
the wrong end of a telescope. This, I am sure,
is the main reason why the performance seemed
uncommunicative to me, though I must report
that the players were rather often at odds as
regards intonation.
On second hearing the quartet by Villa-Lobos
strikes me as a bright, unpretentious work-one
which its composer probably does not distinguish
much in his own mind from the other 1500 or so
pieces that he (prolific fellow) has written. Ac-
tually, the work has several points in its favor.
The writing is clean and efficient, the sonorous tex-
ture is often very effective, and the work is not

The first movement of the Villa-Lobos begins
with an initially striking figure consisting of a
few notes tossed from one instrument to another,
descending from the first violin to the cello. It's
effective, but it hardly seems a strong basis for a
first movement. The fact that the movement holds
together somehow can probably be explained by
a certain rhythmic impulse and the conciseness of
the form. The second movement displays a rather
amusing juxtaposition of styles. Beginning with a
series of fugal entrances in a linear, chromatic
idiom, it soon progresses to a fairly banal tune in
romantic style, by way of some totally irrelevant
passages in parallel fifth. A rather curious mis-
mash, to say the least. The third movement makes
use of jagged, leaping melodic patterns, with ef-
fective string writing-the sort of thing that al-
most passes for real musical vitality. The final
movement says little that hasn't been said before,
but is 'a pleasant conclusion to the work. The
playing (heard from a more advantageous posi-
tion in the auditorium) was a real joy, and came
close to compensating for the shortcomings of the
work. The quartet played with technical aplomb,
and just the sort of vigor that the piece needs.
The A minor Qaurtet of Beethoven which con-
cluded the program is, of course, one of the great
ones. When I first heard it several years ago it
struck me as a very impressive work which some-
how managed to get along without any themes at
all. It take several hearings to be convinced that
Beethoven lavished some of his greatest .thematic
inspiration on this quartet. The ideas from first to
last are of the highest order, and the work as a
whole is full of the sounds that the deaf Beethoven
heard during his last years, and which no other
composer has ever approached. There may be
greater music--in any event there is other music
which I myself like as well. But Beethoven in
his last quartets (with the A minor as perhaps the
supreme example) reached a certain intensity
which goes beyond the intensity all music has to
some degree. It is solid, well-written music (as is
all of Beethoven's work), but with a certain qual-
ity that simply cannot be verbalized. Beethoven
could not have verablized it himself. If he could,
he might have been a writer instead of a composer.
But every time we hear this music, we come closer
to its essence, and to hear it is something to be
accounted as a privilege.
