about the ulti mate outcome of the current truce negotiations in Korea There are too many imponderables for even an educated guess But there are some things that appear reason ably sure Foremost is the certainty that the lifeanddeath struggle be tween communism and the free between the new Rus lian imperialism and the United States if you prefer to state it that will not be resolved by any decision or course of action growing out of the present nego tiations If a real armistice is reached and this is by no means assured at this time it will be no more than an armed truce The com1 munist world can be counted on to step A up preparations for th next phase of the struggle So alsc will thetfree world if it is capabl of an intelligent realism For the Kremlin to Sar What happens next in the con test for world domination on the one hand survival on the other is dependent on the kremlin The advantage which always resides in a power bent on aggression is with our adversary He can pick both the time and the place o the next open warfare Will it be Germany Will it be Yugoslavia Will it be Formosa Will it be or India Or will be it oilrich Iran flush against the Russian border The last possibility looks most plaus ible but the StaHnites are cap able of a deceptive change 01 pace Theyre not always gov erned by the obvious logic of a situation The kremlin can be counted on to proceed with its nefarious ploi to absorb the free nations of the world while talking peace all the while Its preparations for war wil lie carried on behind an iron cur tain and out of sight butits peace talk will be in raucous voice for all to hear A Test for Americans This situation is going to pre lent an add test for the people of America Ifs going to require a lot of vision and courage to keep our preparedness efforts at their maximum in the face of a lull in the fighting Our apathy in this matter can be the kremlihs one most valuable ally Then too there will be those who will be expecting our boy all of to clear out of Ko rea the day after the truce is signed assuming that a truce is signed That just isnt the way things are going to work out In the first place the prospects of an early truce are extremely dim Even if the communists had been defeated to the point of hav ing to capitulate theyd haggle and argue Thats what they did after running out on their allies in World war I But now and we may as well face this fact the communists are bent on making it appear that theyre in the drivers seat Theyve taken a shellacking in Korea but they havent as yet approached the necessity of surrendering in the field Theres a vast propa ganda value in making it appear that rather than the UN are dictating the terms of peace Mere Preview of Future Even in the preliminary meet ings concerned merely with setting up a tentative agenda for the sub sequent parley the communists have tried the patience of the UN General Marshall Reports Russian War Chances on I 1 AP Wirephoto CARRY

weve had is no more than a tiny preview of what lies ahead The pattern for an endless con troversy has already been cut It centers about the insistence of the communists that the neutral zone be ftstablished along the 38th par allel as distinguished from the present battle line and the de mand that all foreign troops clear out of Korea Whether the 38th parallel or other line be accepted as the center of the buffer territory is probably of no more than psy chological importance But for the UN to agree to the withdrawal ox all foreign troops from the pen insula would be to toss the South Koreans into the bear cage like much raw meat Rotation May Be Speeded And herein lies the real reason why an early return to America of all our fighting forces in Korea Isnt in the cards under any con
