Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 3, 1957, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home MASON THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL LXISI Atsoclated and United Press Full Lease The World Around Us Hall Lauds Corps of Diplomats Number 117 EDITORS NOTE This Is one of series of daily reports by our editor on a trip by air around the world By W EARL HALL OVER THE ATLANTIC OUT OF PRESTWICK SCOTLAND For about as long as I can remember Ive been hearing it charged that those who repre sent the United States in other lands are novices at the job com pared with the diplomatic repre sentatives of other countries Britain Seven a Copy MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY APRIL 3 1957 This Paper Consists ol Four SectionsSection No 150 Elsewhere the story goes the diplomatic service is looked upon as a highly specialized calling for which there must be careful screening of the candidates then a long period of training and ap prenticeship for the career of public service But in America one was supposed to infer the foreign service is a haven for inept youngsters and brokendown politicians On this trip Ive had some 50 ports of call in 30 different coun tries In practically every one of these countries Ive had some contact with one or more repre sentatives of official United States In some cases it was the Ambassador in others the Con sul General in still others it was somebody connected with the United States Information Serv ice Two Categories And this is to report that In all of these contacts I have not en countered one representative of our country who didnt impress me as being able personable friendly and sincere I have found no support whatever for any uncomplimentary appraisal of our diplomatic representatives Im not going to particularize with respect to the ambassadors Ive met up with during my odys scy of close to miles Ill only say that they divide into two categories on the basis of their selection Some were po litical others were career The latter were the more num erous But I must report that those who had a background of public service in some such elec tive office as Governor or Sen ator would measure up in qual ities I expect in a diplomat as well as those who have come up through the ranks Beyond Dutys Call In at least a dozen places some body associated with our Amer ican information service usually the director went well beyond the call of duty to smooth the way for me arrange interviews with key people etc A back ground of newspapering o I course was our common bond A companion untruth to the claim that our diplomats are dull ards is that Uncle Sam and Americans are disliked all around the world Thats 180 degrees wide of the truth Never once or this entire jaunt have I detected a manifestation of unfriendliness toward me as an American or against my government or coun try The converse of this fallacy concerning American unpopular ity is the contention that Commu nists have some special genius for making friends and influenc ing people Im persuaded more than ever by what Ive seen heard and felt that if the world ever turns to Communism it will be on the invitation of MIS ERY or FORCE not by reason of Russian salesmanship Ikes Statement The cause of the free world has been measurably advanced by Americas program of foreign aid military and economic Of that Im not in doubt But in the struggle for the minds of men one simple statement by President Eisenhower last No vember did what money and ma terial aid couldnt possibly do A great hitherto neutral segment of world opinion moved over into the American camp when he said in effect We will not countenance force ful aggression by friend or That priority of principle over expediency has elevated Amer ican prestige more than anything else in the past quarter century LILIES FOR THE FIRST LADY Eisenhower receives a bouquet of lilies from Walter Bill Cash Clear Lake Iowa National Easter Seal Child for
