Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1949, Winona, Minnesota COLD TONIGHT, WARMER TUESDAY VOLUME 49, NO. 211 WINONA, MINNESOTA, MONDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 24, 1949 FIVE CENTS PER COPY SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY CHEST TWENTY PAGES TOD4Y- Democracy Depends on Leadership By Joseph and Stewart Alsop U. N. A-Bomb Control Urged the parts of a! puzzle, the basic facts of great na-j tional problems are generally: meaningless until they are fitted' together. Last week, within 48 j hours, three impressively author- itative Americans gave separate utterance to the three basic facts in the major problem now confront-! ing the United States. Although the) pattern formed is in the last de-j gree unpalatable, what these three! men said now deserves to be! brought together into a single de-1 sign. First, Dr. Harold C. Urey, one) of the leading American nuclear! physicists, warned the country that; the Soviet Union "can and prob- ably will" wipe out the American "atomic which has now re- placed "atomic monopoly" as the) Maginot line of our fond hopes.) Writing in the authoritative "Bui-1 letin of the Atomic Dr. j Urey forecast that the kremlin! would possess a decisive stockpile, of atomic bombs "in a relatively short time." He suggested further, that this time would probably be] two years. SECOND, Secretary of State Dean G. Acheson, who two years ago defined the Soviet Union as "ex- panding and revised and strengthened this definition. Speaking at a dinner of .the Alfred E. Smith Memorial foundation, Acheson described Soviet Russia as "the aggressively imperialist power of our which was "seeking to expand its dominion wherever its grasp and its reach coincide.' Third, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson, winding up the lamentable hearings on the com- plaints of the admirals, publicly admitted what has already been re- ported in this further great cutbacks in our defense ef- fort are now planned by the Tru- man administration. These statements require very little annotation to bring out their full significance. In connection with Dr. Urey's forecast, however, it is) well to remember that our highest! military planners regarded our) "atomic monopoly" as the main deterrent to Soviet aggression, un- til the monopoly was broken by the explosion of the Beria bomb. IN CONNECTION with the re- marks of Secretary Acheson, it should be borne in mind that the Soviet Union is making a gigantic armament effort, comparable to the effort of nazi Germany. this effort the kremlin's potential) "grasp and reach" must constant- ly be extended, if no compensating effort is made by the free world. And in connection with Secretary Johnson's admission that our de- _ pffort is beine cut back it is'deal inquiry, but claimed that he was So invUugateBthCeUmeaamng of UtUejT hy the examination directed at.him by the word which he em- ployed rather freely before the House armed services committee. The implication was left with John- son's hearers that the being practiced at the Defense de-j partment is the kind that will givej us just as much defense for much! less money. Specifically, Secretary! Johnson admitted that next year's budget ceiling on the Army, Navy and Air Force would be billions. Mrs, Eugenie Anderson, newly appointed ambassador to Den- mark, and her husband, John, leave their hotel at New York city today. Mrs. Anderson, from Red Wing, Minn., will spend a few days in New York city before going to Washington to be sworn in. (A.P. Wirephoto to The Republican-Herald.) Foster Confused By Questions, Claim By Jack Mackay St. for Charles Foster today filed a brief admit- ting that Foster gave some "incorrect answers" in the Arkansas bond Gloom Spreads In Steel, Coal Strike Talks No Indication President Plans To Intervene By The Associated Press Thickening gloom appeared to] have smothered today any hope for early peace in the nation's in- dustrial crippling coal and steel strikes. Nowhere was there any apparent progress toward a break in either of the two major disputes as un- employment mounted and more and more industries became hob- bled. Some railroads prepared to curtail train services because of dwindling coal piles and layoffs continued in industries dependent upon steel supplies. There was no indication that President Truman had decided to intervene in either strike but spreading dislocations in the na- tion's economy made such action seem more and more likely. Ad- ministration policy, however, Was described yesterday as still one of hope that some strike-breaking con- cessions might be forthcoming soon and that White House action would not be necessary. But out of the dismal weekend, developments came settlement of two other the 45-day tieup of the Missouri Pacific Railroad by train and engine men and the 176-day walkout of stevedores at five of six Hawaiian ports. The Missouri Pacific expected to have some trains running by late today and the Hawaiian dock work- ers were ordered back to their jobs tomorrow and Wednesday. Negotiators did not disclose the terms which ended the Missouri Pacific strike but it Was announced that agreement was reached on 189 union claims against the railroad Seats For The Invited Guests are set up in East 42nd street at New York city, where an open air meeting of the U.N. general assembly was held this afternoon as a backdrop for the laying of the corner- stone of the United Nations permanent headquarters. President Truman's address climaxed a nation- wide celebration of United Nations day, the organization's fourth birthday. (AP. Wirephoto to The Republican-Herald.)

Vaccaro New York Tru- man challenged all nations today to agree on a workable way to out- law the atomic bomb, as the al- ternative to man's destruction. Speaking against the background of Russia's refusal to come into an agreement that the United States and other powers have en- dorsed, Mr. Truman said: "To assure that atomic energy will be devoted to man's welfare and not to his destruction is a continuing challenge to all na- tions and all peoples." It was his first foreign policy declaration since his September 23 announcement: "We have evidence, that within recent weeks an atom- ic explosion occurred in the- TJ.S.S.R." The president declared: Control Taught "Ever since the first atomic weapon was developed, a major objective of United States policy has been a system of internation- al control of atomic energy that would assure effective prohibition of atomic weapons, and at the same time would promote the peaceful use of atomic energy by all nations." Mr. Truman spoke at the laying of the cornerstone of the secretar- iat building of permanent United Nations headquarters on U.N.'s fourth anniversary. The United States has offered to surrender its bomb under the Russian-opposed, but general as- sembly-approved "Baruch plan" providing rigid U.N. inspections and controls to assure against il- legal bomb building. The President did not mention Russia by name, but indirectly challenged the Soviet government to offer a "better and more effec- tive plan." He said the United States is now, 'and will remain, ready to do Its full share" to meet the atomic weapon's threat to peace. Human Rights Essential In another obvious dig at the Soviet orbit Mr. Truman also sharply criticized disregard of hu- man rights which he said were "indispensable to political, econom- ic and social progress." He said U.N. members know that "disre- gard of human rights is the be- ginning of tyranny, and, too often, the beginning of war." He spoke just two days after the general assembly voted agree- ment with Western charges -1--11 Russian satellites Bulgaria, torney who represented Foster at Midland, Texas Five before the exe already inadequate, exploded pair our strength.

Peace of- ficers today broadened their search for a youthful prisoner whose boasting led to a spectacular mid- town jail break in which two men were killed. Federal agents, state and city police joined in the hunt for Jack Tatum, 27, who with four compan- ions, broke from his cell on the fifth floor of the Maricopa county courthouse building Saturday. It was the second time that Ta- tum had broken out of jail. He was captured at Florence Junction, Ariz., September 20 after his es- cape from the Minden, Nev., jail August 13. Killed by two shots from the pis- tol of Tom Stowe, 40, crippled night watchman at the courthouse, "were Edward Corcoran, also known as Harold Hale, 33, and Charles Ed- ward McEwen, 32. Both were being held for trial on first degree mur- der charges. Wounded in the battle was Deputy Sheriff O. Z. Alford.
