Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 20, 1963, Mason City, Iowa V C f Harry Truman not surprised by RussiaRed China rift jt i8 tweenCommunist Russia and ship to travel all the way to It teredl1 INDEPENDENCE I wan the world horizon from my outpost here at fee library in Independence Mo the pros pects for peace in our times are far from reassuring Yet there are indications that if the Soviets continue on their present course a lessening of tensions could come to pass leading to the end of the Cold War and eventual disarmament It is apparent that the men in the Kremlin now realize somewhat belatedly that they have misjudged the character and intentions of their Red China partners Communist Russia considers itself the origi nator and leader of the vast un dertaking of communizing the 2 ships hit Fear 30 dead world But China thinks 5t is test qualified to lead because it alone practices pure Leninist Marxist doctrine have I think yet to learn how badly they have misjudged the nature and character of their subjects and that in the long run they face great difficulties and certain overthrow of their totalitarian regimes Education is the ruination of totalitarian ism Anyway both Russia and China have misrepresented their system as being the Dic tatorship of the whereas they are in fact a mill tary Dictatorship to the Pro letariat I am therefore not greatly surprised at the growing rift be tween Communist Russia and Red China By all the accounts in history these two are as ir reconcilable as let us say the Union of South Africa and its approach to the colored races There are no countries where the people are clamoring for a Communist dictatorship and there never were It was al ways imposed through a betray al of revolutions and a military takeover as in the case of Cuba Even before the end of the war we tried our best to reach some understanding to work out peace keeping arrange ments with the Communist leaders without compromising basic principles This was the reason President R o o s e velt risked serious physical hard ship to travel ail the way to Velta and this was why I went to Potsdam for conferences with Stalin Church i I and Attlee We hoped we could reason with them But when we discovered as I did after Potsdam and all dur ing my administration that they had no respect for treaties and that they broke them when it suited their purpose we real ized that we were dealing with a government we could not trust It was clear that these people had no patience with reason or only re spected strength And we had to get strong and stay strong This is how the armaments race grew into monstrous propor tions QUEBEC CITY UPI The ore carrier Tritonica sank Sat urday in the St Lawrence Riv er after colliding in fog with a British freighter and at least 30 crewmen were feared dead Quebecprovincial police re ported that 10 bodies had been recovered seven hours after the accident and at least 20 crewmen were still missing Six injured seamen were re ported on a rescue boat headed for Quebec City The Tritonica tentatively identified as a 12863ton 527 foot Britishowned vessel col lided with the 6153ton 454 foot freighter Roonagh Head whose home port is Dublin about 1 am CST off the vil lage of Petit Riviere St Fran cois The scene is about 40 miles east of Quebec City Authorities said the area was foggy at the time but the cause of the collision was not immediately known All available rescue s h i p s rushed to the scene The Fed eral Transport Departmeijt marked the collision scene with that other vessels could around the sunken Tritonica The transport department be gan an immediate investigation of the collision Fear strike of railroads will occur WASHINGTON AP Con gress is tooling up to move promptly on President recommendations to avert a na tionwide railroad strike but few members think it can act in week Congressional committee staffs have done considerable research and hearings are expected to starl in both branches within a day or so after Kennedy sends up his proposals on Monday time needed to pass a law wil depend on the depth of the Presi dents recommendations Sen Lister Hill DAla chair man of the Senate Labor Com Under an agreement made a the White House July 10 the car riers agreed to hold off instituting new work eventuallj It it incredible that people who insist that only communism is capable of cur ing al ills of the world will not face up to the fact that Marx Engels and Lenin never en visioned the marvelous scien tific and technological advances achieved in recent years and they could not have anticipated the coming of the atomic age and the innumerable opportu nities as well as the dangers that followed from that devel opment Today we see that the cleav age between the two Commu nist powers have come into the open I believe that the West has at long last reason to hope that out of all Uiis may come some relaxation of tensions and possibly a realignment of forces between East and West What to bo happening is that the Russians find them selves unable lo expand their already vast empire in pithcr TRUMAN NIKITA or West They are checked by China on tlio East and they were halted in their probings by a strong Europe on the West Now when dictatorships begin to feel restless from an attack of claustrophobia they usually make trouble for their neighbors But if they are con fronted by conditions that aggression too risky they will about face and use discretion instead This is the situation with men in the Kremlin as I see it in the light of current develop ments and while I would not trust their motives if they had a choice I would be inclined lo regard their willingness to cooperate as more credible if it were proposed out of neces sity But we of the West arc
