Marxist World Is a Poorhouse THERE are at least two gen eral approaches by which you can discover that Communism is no good for man or beast One is to take a closeup look at it and its unhappy fruits the other is to stand off and look at Com munism alongside other forms of government and economics par ticularly democracy and capit alism peoples capitalism that is I begin with the assertion and it is that rather than a dem onstrable fact that there isnt in our world today one single place where Communism pre vails that would keep it if there was 1 a free choice on the part of the people and 2 a plausible alternative This latter item the plausible alternative is of tremendous importance In Hungary where the people who had been exposed to Communism for a dozen years or so there was a demonstratior of how satellite peoples feel to ward the Kremlin and the brutal rule imposed upon them Except for the dispatch of Rus sian troops to quell the uprising Hungary today would be ruled by some sort of interim governmen in its transition from the Com munist tyranny it has known to the democratic type of govern ment in the minds of its freedom loving leaders For Stronger UN A stronger argument for giv ing the United Nations some teeth cguld scarcely be imagined Russia flouted international lav and common decency and thi world organization set up for the purpose of promoting peace in our world had to stand by pow erless in the face of a heinou crime against humanity What I saw beard and felt while in Russia earlier this year persuaded me that the loathing of Communism there is even more pronounced than in Hun gary The people there have known its evil works not for a mere dozen years but for some 40 Not many homes are without their vacant chairs vacant because some member of the family has been liquidated In Hungary there was a plaus ible alternative It was democ racy and it would have been achieved Im rather confident if the Kremlin had not been per mitted to send in troops and mod ern arms You cant beat tanks STREAMLINER WRECKED AT CROSSING High way patrolmen move in to check two overturned coaches of Rock Islands MinneapolistoHouston TwinStar Rocket derailed at
