S. Voters By Joseph and Stewart Alsop Washington one seems to have noticed it, but a powerful attempt to restore out-and-out Iso- lationism as official Republican doctrinal has been going on for some time. The opportunity was provided by the 1950 senatorial con- tests to the two key states of Ohio and i Illinois. And ever since they began their campaigns. Senator Kobert A. Taft and Representative Everett Dirksen have been seeking to make the Ohio and Illinois elec- 17 Kill as Trai n tlons into eye-catching: proofs of isolationism's reviving appeal to the voters. The case of Representative Dirk- sen is not especially significant, unless the essential squalor of po- litical human nature happens to excite your morbid interest. In Dirksen was a fervent con-1 vert to the internationalism of Sen-, ator Arthur H. Vandenberg, of Michigan, until just about the time when he was tempted to seek the Illinois Senate seat now occupied by Majority Leader Scott Lucas. UNFORTUNATELY, the interna- tionalism of Senator Vandenberg is no better than the foreign policy of Benedict Arnold in the eyes of Colonel Robert R. McCormick. The colonel owns a controlling interest in the Illinois Republican party. And by some peculiar magic, the straying Dirksen saw the error of his ways, and opened his senatorial campaign on a blatantly isolation- ist note, with the colonel's benign blessing. It remains to be seen how much, good this will do Dirk- sen, whose appeal to the Illinois independent vote largely lay in his reputation for not belonging to Colonel McCormick. Senator Taft, on the other hand, is a man as Well as a politician. a man of con viction, he has lever more than briefly wavered in his isolationism And as a politician, he has evi- dently calculated that it would be good campaign tactics to change the venue, as it were, from the Taft-Hartley act and other domes- tic Issues. Hence Taft has been stressing his opposition to the bi- partisan foreign policy with spe- cial fervor and intensity, In al- most all his opening speeches to "the Ohio voters. Until ten days ago, Ssnator Taft's campaign strategy was con- sidered very smart politics indeed by most of the poltlclal sooth-say- ers. As long as three years ago, Senator Vandenberg himself began to warn that the American elec torate in general, and the midwest- Justice Douglas Injured in Fall Taklma, Wash Justice Wil iam O. Douglas, one of the leading liberals of the U. S. Supreme court was injured gravely yesterday in the Cascade mountains he loved as a boy. He suffered 13 rib fractures and a punctured lung when his frightened horse fell and rolled on him. His chances of full recovery, however, appeared excellent today, Doctors attending him at a Yakima hospital said his condition was not critical. The 50-year-old jurist responded well to blood transfusions and em- ergency treatment given on his ar- rival from the accident scene, 77 miles away. But for several days, his doctors said, the danger of pneumonia will je acute.

The Bodies Of Three Persons who were among 17 killed at On- tario, Calif., last night, lie at the railroad intersection where a speeding passenger train smashed into an Air Force bus. The bus was returning military and civilian personnel to March Air Base after a day at the beach. (A.P. Wirephoto to The Republican- Herald.) Air Base Picnic In California Ends in Tragedy Acetylene Torches Cut Wreckage From Locomotive By Jim Hubbart Ontario, Calif. A racing passenger train ripped into a. X7.S. Air Force bus at a crossing last night, killing 17 of the 22 occupants. Eleven of the dead were military lor civilian personnel from March Air Base; five were members of the Ontario Hostess' service or- other was the chap- erone, Mrs. Ruby McLaugMin, 45, mother of one of the dead girls, Ju- anita McLaughlin, 18. Chief Deputy.Coroner Edward P. Doyle said only five, including twin sisters sitting in different parts of the bus, escaped alive. It was hours ern voters in particular, would eventually rebel against the bur- dens imposed by a constructlv foreign policy. THIS TEAR WITH th' tension easing in Europe and the kremlin taking a rather quieter line, con- beginning of this voters' rebellion. Senator Vandenberg repeatedly acknowledged he saw the signs.

Coleman obtained the forms at Governor Kennebohm's of- fice. He said he figured he had saved time by driving to Madi- son for them and would return tomorrow after filing them. The procedure is necessary before applying to the governor for sig- nature. La Crosse, Wis. District Attorney John S. Colernan said he would ask Governor Rennebohm to- day to sign extradition papers for a former La Crosse resident charg- ed with murdering Dr. James Mc- two years ago. Arnold Larson, 35, a Minneapolis automobile salesman, was arrest- Saturday and charged" with the slaying of the prominent La Crosse 'physician.

The Bulgarian representa- tives have arrived in New York but it is not yet known when the Al- banians are due here. The conciliation task has assumed j some urgency since the U.N. special! committee on the Balkans reported recently there was danger of a seri- ous outbreak of hostilities in the] Balkans unless Bulgaria and Al- bania stopped aidinp the communist-! led Greek guerrillas. The committee said Yugoslavia had fulfilled its promise to close the border with Greece. The conciliation group will re- uort back to t ;ee by October their peace efforts. The political committee is sched- uled to continue debate today on the disposal of Italy's prewar Afri- can colonies. The U.N. spotlight this week is likely to shift, however, to the as- jembly's special political committee, which may reach the subject of charges of human rights violations in Russian satellites Tuesday.

And this I partly explains why Hoffman has been pressing for immediate Eu- ropean economic union, almost us-, ing shotgun wedding tactics. In short, when he launched his campaign. Senator Taft had good reasons for believing, that there! was an isolationist tide for him t ride on. Under the circumstances the senator must have suffered un usual anguish when he heard Pres ident Truman's announcement o an "atomic explosion somewheri in Russia." With the development of the Ber ia bomb, a pattern has been re peated again, on the largest and most dramatic scale, that long ago began to drive the Republican Iso lationists almost to distraction, I has happened half a score of times already, that the American people would be just comfortably climb- ing into bed, and getting ready to put their heads under the covers when the kremlin kicked them out again. It is difficult to believe that this last great event has not done the job for go-out-and-out-iso- lationist appeals are bound to sound pretty odd, against the lurid backdrop of a Soviet Alamogordo. IT MUST BE ADDED that this thought does not appear, as yet, to have discouraged either Senator Taft himself or the lesser leaders of his kind. Judging by the sen- ator's comments on the grim new situation that now confronts this country, he is still firmly commit- ted to basing his appeal in Ohio on strong isolationism. This means, of course, that at the next session of Congress, Taft will be Jar more active than before in his attacks on the bi-partisan foreign policy. At the same time, President has .permitted bi-partisanship to be weakened, and will now be forced .to present Congress with new measures going considerably be- yond those which have already aroused Taft's ire. In short, al- though so little time is left to us, the whole next year may be wasted in angry debate, before the elec- tion comes and the American peo- ple are permitted to give their ver- dict on their own future.
