Local temperatures: maximum Friday 42; minimum Friday night 33. Precipitation .6 of inch, MT. PLEASANT, IOWA SATURDAY EVENING, NOV. 15, CLARE TOLD THEM THE llAHIO EMPLOYS Ihe de- vice of Uie so-called forum lo give tlie impresslon-of .being all things to all men. Because an edilo.-ial policy is forbielden by FCC, these often become hilarious brawls during which the only way express an idea is to shout down the opponents, lo p'ush' into 'the fight, to raise one's voice .beyond civility. Clare Luce got into such a brawl with William Bullibt on her side and Vilo Mnrcantonio and Cor- h'ss Lamont on the other. Here Is an example of a typical street corner fight: "Marcantonio: What were those 150 million bullets? What were they gum or what? "Bullitl: What do you refer "Marcantonio: The 150 million that was shipped over there six months aso. 150 million bullets nol for American rifles, but for Chinese rifles. "Bullilt: Those "Marcantonio: No, those were chewing gum. "Lamonl: Say, lei me get in on this, will In another place happens. "Luce: _ Gracious, Ihis begins to sound exactly like the UN, anc somobcdy around here sounds like "Marcantnnio: It sounds' a liltlc bil more like "Luce: Don'l run down the Con- gress like that. "Marcantonio: That's all right When you refer lo anything sound- ing like Vishinsky, I say this sounds like Mrs. Luce, when you used to agree with me on occasion. "Granik: Just a Mi's. Luce a chance to answer Ihat. please, Congressman. "Luce: As I don't follow a party line, I can find it possible occasion- ally to agree with even you. "Marcantonio: Now you are fol- lowing a 'Big Trust1 line, nol a parly line." Is this fun? When Mrs. T.uce quotes from a Soviet official textbook to this ef- "Thc pupils of -the Soviet Echodl must realize that the feel- ings of Soviet patriotism arc satu- rated -with irreconcilable hatred towards .the enemies of the Socialist Corliss Lamont replies: "What they really mean there, is Ihat the children of the Sovicl Union should fight for Socialism against Capitalism. It is not. a hatred being taught against any country or any people, because the Union believes in complete national and racial democracy and has. no anli-seinilism or anything of that Then Clare gets Lamont good and proper. He right in and gels it on the chin. Here is the col- loquy: "Luce: Mr. Lamont, as you have been a member of orer 100 Com- munist-front "Lamonl: That is ridiculous. That is "Luce: I have them right liere- "Lamont: Who is smearing now, Mrs. Luce? Who is dealing in per- sonalities, now? "Luce: Oh, do you think it is a smear to be called a Communist? "Lamont: Go ahead, my friend. "Luce: Well, I thought you like the Communists. "Lamont: Go ahead. "Luce: Goodness, I thought they were your friends and you were de- fending them. "Lamont: Well, Hitler hated the Communists, too. "Luce: oh, Hitler hated them! "Mnrcantonio: Yes, and he used the hate of Communism In order to plunge .this world into World War II, and you people are using h a tjc of Co m m u n i s m t o this world into World War III. Thai's what you arc doing I am thinking of the boys who are going to die. "Luce: It seems to me lhal the only one of "Grnnik: Let Mrs. Luce finish, Mr. Turnout. "Luce: Tiie only one of the fom of us who really has any claim to knowledge of Russia is Mr. Bullitt who was ambassador there. I think he should be allowed to talk about'Russia. It goes on nnd on that way, no one arguing to thc point became apparently Marcanlonio was there keep it strictly personal and lo prevent the subject, "the Sovicl Union's policies in world from being discussed.
