Preu and United Prew Full Wire Seven Cenis a Copy MASON CtTY tOWA MONDAY NOVEMBER 2 1W3 This Paper of Two One Afons Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor From Dictator to Democracy T WISH I might have been on hand at the SavoyPlaza Hotel in New York City the other day to see the Society take note of the Republic of Turkeys 30th birthday It came into being on Oct 29 1923 and has exper ienced a growth and development since that time which tis I think almost without precedent in the an nals of civilization And if I had been on hand for that birthday call ing it Turkeys Fourth of Id have wanted to swing arounc by the UN building to see Turkeys new role of importance in thai world organization Recently Tur key won a seat on the Security Council over Poland That was a distinct setback forthe Communist world The vote was 40 to 19 Brazil and New Zealand had been chosen on an earlier ballot for the other two vacancies in the 11na tional Security Council with 56 and 48 votes respectively In the early balloting a few votes had gone to the Philippines a late entry which for a time seemed likely to embarrass the United States in its support of Turkey Both Turkey and the Philippines of course are in our corner as against Communism Three New Members What all this means is that next Jan 1 Turkey Brazil and New Zealand will take their place around the table at the Security Councils sessions They will re place Greece Chile and Pakistan and the term of service for their representatives will be two years All three can be counted on to be sympathetic with the American point of view but none will be more loyal than Turkey its safe to pre dict By this time some of you are beginningto suspect Ive nctdoubt that is one of subjects Not sqmany months age I came backfrom a 15OOQumili jaunt aroundtheedge of thelroB Curtain countries My mission had been to find out for myself if I could just where the free world stands in its lifeanddeath struggle with World the revival ofRussian Imperialism if you want a more accurate term The one greatest comfort iai joy met up with by me and1 my companion journalists on that fact finding mission was youve guessed No Worry About Turkey On leaving France I had some misgivings about the wish or the ability of the French to rise up to the by them in patriotism under Joffre in 1914 and Foch in 1918 I I still firmly theyd be on our side if the chips were down They had folded up in 1940 under top little pretext and some of the things that have taken place in France since that ticularly their friendly attitude toward had a disquieting note about them In lesser degree I had concern about either the ability or the dc termination of 7taly Yugoslavia Greece Spain Britain and Ger many to stand up and slug it out if the Russian Bear tried to move in But never not even for a I have any fear about Turkeys behavior in the faceof attack And nobody else need have any fear either Even though the Turks are so close to that Russian Bear that they can almost literally feel his breath on their necks they enter tain not the slightest fear of the animal Im not saying that theyre not concerned They are that But theyre not frightened A Modern Miracle In those three decades since Kemal Ataturk took over the reins of government at Constantinople there has been a transformation in the Turkish status in the world and the Turkish attitude on the homcfrontrthat must almostbe re ferred to as the greatest niiracle of our day Its that about which Ill be talking most in this little visit with you When the amazing Ataturk took over Turkey was known and properly The Sick Man of Europe The country was poor in stillis ifthe com parison is with the United States or even the countries of western Europe The economy had been sapped hy continuous and in variably on the losing side More than that the individual Turk was in a dejected spirit He just didnt much care whether school kept or not That was the Turkey of 1923 But ft isnt the Turkey of todayIn fact CONTINUED ON PAGI 2 Benson Changes Farm Operation U S to See it Fear Keeping American PWs in Red Hands PANMUNJOM Korea UP US officials said Monday they will question the 22 unrepatriated American prisoners of the Reds intensively to determine whether Communist death threats forced them into Communism Word leaked out Monday that 19 of the 22 Yanks who

free one one of the Americans who will counter brainwash the victims of Red propaganda said Reliable sources with firsthand information on the 22 proCommu nist GIs said only three of them actually believed in Marxist the ories Fear threats and blackmail hold the others back from their loved ones A revealing and grapnic picture behind the bamboo curtain which tiides 22 lonely Americans from their fellow countrymen was drawn by sources who cannot be identi fied but which have obtained first hand knowledge of life in the pro Communist prison camp K S THIMAYYA These sources said Red agents have warned the Americansthey will be pumped dry and then bumped off by the Federal Bureau of Investigation if they re turn to the United States But the Communists have prom ised them a life of ease luxury and leadership if they remain be hind the Iron Curtain The Beds have offered them free travel and Chinese wives Or if they wish the Americans can re quest their own families to join them and the Communists will make all arrangements Some of the information revealed by these sources matched reports given by Cpi Edward S Dicken son the 23yearold Virginian who left the proCommunist camp two weeks ago and returned to the UN side Meantime the erratic Communist program to woo back antiRed Chinese and Korean war prisoners floundered in uncertainty Monday night after a Red dispute with the
