THAT MAKES ALL NORTH 10 WANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION j vn anil United Full LMM Wlrw t Copy MASON CUT IOWA MONDAY NOVEMBER ol Two 24 One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor Koreas Impact on National Defense arent ever going to be the same again around tha giant building in Washington known as the Pentagon The Ko rean war has changed everything Experiences of the past 4 months in that faroff land have thrown the white light on the few strengths and the many weakness es of our national defense Of greatest importance in this respect is the revolutionary change of attitude toward our overall de fense problem Up to the outbreak Of the hostilities in Korea tha overall attitude was expressible in How much can we spend on national defense and still have enough money left to do all the other things we want to do This question undoubtedly origi nated in the white house but it spread to the congress and even to the Pentagon The emphasis has been not on our defense needs but on those other things we want to do suchthings as providing se curity and subsidies for various segments of our population etc Alls Different Now All of that is now out the win dow From this point on the rule will be to take a look at the world situation and try to determine by objective appraisal of that world situation what our defense needs are Remember how all of of us at any applauded the newly appointed secretary of the defense department when he an ti6uncedthat he had a planunder which he could give us adequate national defense for something less than the billion appropriated by congress Remember too how many of us not all of that of defense when sum en a giant carrier ship folk navy which there had been an appropriation by congress Now and all because of the les son contained in the Koreanwar we have become aware as a nation that it would profit us nothing to promote domestic security if by doing it we left America open to attack and capture by a power bent on achieving world domina tion First Things Placed First By bitter experience weve been induced to put first things first in our approach to the national de fense question There was a time when some of those in high places in our na tional defense setup believed that longrange bombersand push buttons would be principal in gredients in pur next war That meant a minimizing of such pldr as footsoldiers carrierrships andthe likel Nomore of that around the Pen The Korean war has made it crystal clear that a wellrounded defense is an absolute essential The building up of one military element the expense of another issheer follyJyAir power is enor mously important totalpic it isnt the total picture of and by itself Exponents of victory by air power alone are strangely silent about the Korean phenomenon in whichwe had not mere superiority in the air but uncontested mastery Inthe face of this however the final decision was writteriby fight ers with guns and bayonets 2 Enticing Phrases something fascinatiag about the phrase pushbutton war Guided is a com panion phrase That sounds good too But until theres a guided mis sile equipped with the intelligence required to change its mind over a target area pushbutton wars are for the distant future not the pres ent Nothing of this sort has yet been evolved Perhaps the most important sin gle fact developed by the Korean war is one which should have been obvious to to us who claim no expertness in military we had but opened our eyes The fact to which I re fer is that we were fools to think we could have military or even relative billion a year Because of Russias peculiar economy its difficult and per haps impossible to determine what percentage of her national income has been devoted to her military might There are such imponder ables as slaye labor to be consid ered Perhaps its 25 per cent per haps its 50 per cent Evidence in dicates that its nearer 50 than 25 per cent A Pathetic Contrast But whatever the exact percen tage its beyond mistaking that the 6 per cent of national income rep fesented by our billion appro priation for national defense is in pathetic contrast with the Russian CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

aroused Albert J Loveland democratic enatofial nominee replied to the ame question The issues which interested the voters most were 1 Our appeal for allout sup iort of the United Nations 2 A farmer to represent a arm state in the senate 3 The bad work record of our pponent on the senate agricul ure committee 4 The bad voting record of ur opponent a record in too many instances against the peo le

Hickenlopper to the senate and the Iowa republican delega tion to congress Jake More democratic state chairman said The issue on the state level was economy in government Many people wonder what the state will do for funds now that republican administrations have spent the surplus they had Does it mean new and added taxes The democrats are com mitted to tax reduction and econ omy in government The liquor scandal problem created more interest than any other issue The people protest the state spending the taxpayers1 money to build up a liquor reserve The money could better have been spent for education or further as sistance to old people or for roads As to the senatorial campaign the voters were most interested in thefailure of the republican can didate to attend senate agriculture
