Vote on Leopold Unlikely in Belgium Ruling The Alsops New Team U.S. Maps Plans By Joseph Alsop President Truman being what, he Is, our future now depends upon the management o! our affairs by Secretary of State Dean G, Acheson and Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson. Enough time has passed to give an idea of the performance of this new team, put in byxthc President to replace the great postwar pilots, George C. Robert A. Lov- ett and James V. Forrestal. And Acheson's return from Paris, after a modest but solid, and exceedingly creditable success, affords a good occasion to take a reading. Acheson has already shown him- self to be what most people always have known him to man of character and great intelligence, an apt and patient negotiator and a shrewd judge of world issues. It took all these qualities to meet the challenge of the abrupt Soviet change of front in Paris: to give awny nothing just because Andrei Vishinsky was suddenly being pleasant; and to pull the plums of a German modus vivenW and a promised Austrian settlement out of the yeasty Paris pudding. Even in this first few months, Acheson has also had some success in the slow task of bringing order out of the immemorial chaos of State department organization. A machine that was built for a coun- try that did not have a foreigt policy cannot be adapted overnigh to make positive, constructive for eign policy on a day-to-day, pro duction line basis. But with the as sistnnce of Under Secretary Jame Webb, who has wisely chosen tc be more administrator than policy maker, Acheson is getting ahead with the job that was begun under Marshall and Lovett. AS TO ACHESON, indeed, then can be only one doubt. The area of crisis is now shifting to the Far East. The policy elaborated by Marshall, Lovett and Forresla specifically excluded Asia Mar- shall, with his strong dislike for the Chinese national government again an'd again prevented his younger partners from formulating a clear Asiatic policy. We have no clear Asiatic policy today and the National Security council at the moment.is rather nervously trying to develop one. All of this means that in the Far East Acheson has the job o! laying down new policy lines in- stead of following old ones. Unhap- pily, he comes to his task with the conviction that Marshall was in the right, rather than Lovett and For- restal. His subordinates in the Far Eastern division may be counted upon to encourage any tendency he may have to do too little and to do it too late. The final test of Acheson will be whether he suc- ceeds in Asia as well as his pre- cedessors succeeded in Europe.

Prairie Island Indians Sought ForU.S.X-Ray The U. S. Department of In- terior's office of Indian affairs wrote today that it will send its X-ray unit to Prairie Island Wednesday to X-ray the "Indian population." The department's field office at Pipestone, Minn., wants help from the city nursing service in X-raying the "Indian popula- tion" on Prairie Island. This wip probably come as a surprise to the government, but the Indians don't live here no more. At least the Winona nursing service is reasonably certain of that. It has asked the govern- ment to try Red Wing, since it understands that the Indians moved up there about three- quarters of a century ago. Most of Nation East of Rockies Still Swelters By The Associated Press Most of the nation east of the The reconstruction of the Essex Rocky mountains sweltered in hu- mid stickiness today, and there was little relief in sight.

Le May House approached its first test voting today n a multibillion dollar administration program of public housing and slum clearance. With a long list of amendments and substitute proposals up for ecision after a week of hot debate, confident House leaders predicted the Senate-passed housing bill would go to the White House by Friday s a major victory for President Truman's "fair deal" program. But the opposition, including many Republicans and some south- rn Democrats, refused to give up.!

Prague priests said they believed lie pastoral letter, signed by Arch- lishop Josef Beran of Prague, Archbishop Josef Matocha of Olo- mouc and the country's other Cath- olic bishops, had received wide cir- culation despite police attempts to prevent the letter from being read in pulpits. Priests have reported they were warned in night police visits against reading pastoral letters, the only means for the hierarchy- to tell its slde-of rthe'church-state fight since the Catholic press was shut down by the government. 1 The pastoral letter supported re- ports ot the seizure of the arch- bishop's administrative offices at Prague and his virtual captivity in his palace.

Archbishop Beran did not leave his police-guarded palace to read the letter in person at St. Vttus1 cathedral. He left the pulpit there last week after communist heck- lers broke up his sermon. Although the letter was issued over tbe prelate's signature, it was obviously not printed in his palace, where printing equipment has been seized by the police.
