TODAY- Dulles Loss May Not Hurt Dewey By Joseph and Stewart Alsop Washington On Wednesday morning, after Herbert- Lehman had knocked the tar out of John Foster Dulles in the New York senatorial contest, one of Governor Thomas E. Dewey's ablest hench- men summed up his conclusions. "It kind of looks this morning as though they liked the welfare -state." he said wryly, but without any noticeable gloom.

The remark 'was made in the upper house of 'Parliament the House of an In-: terrogation by members. Itj brought an immediate request! from the cabinet for a transcript of his statement. The transcript showed Yoshida said: "A peace treaty Is a right so long as it is a treaty. We can demand a right. If the peace terms are disadvantageous to Japan -we can walk out, as they term It, of (from) the conference, or just decline the peace treaty." The cabinet secretariat said the transcript was requested by that body because Yoshida's speech "was worded too strongly" and the cabinet wanted to see "the transcribed version in order to re- vise some words." A Japanese foreign office offi- cial termed Yoshida's remarks. "an unfortunate mistake at this! time." The official said Yoshida spoke as prime minister and not as foreign minister, a portfolio he holds also. Yoshida also was quoted by Kyo- do news agency as saying he would reserve an answer on the point of establishing foreign military bases in Japan after a treaty had been signed. The prime minister was quoted further as saying Japan had "no freedom of choice" ..on the ques- tion of whether a treaty Is con- cluded with only the western allies or whether Russia would partici- pate. "A separate peace with only the Western he was quoted as saying, "may be considered as a way leading to the 'all peace' with all of the wartime Allies. Whichever it might be, it is better to have peace with a small num- ber of nations than to have no peace at all.' After saying Japan had no choice In this matter, Yoshida contra- dicted himself somewhat, Kyodo said, by adding the Japanese "gov- ernment will only decide its policy when it faces the problem con-i cretely." i Kyodo later reported the foreign Truman Renews Request For New Civil Rights Law Robert A.

Vaccaro Washington President Tru- man vigorously renewed his cell for passage of civil rights laws today, saying they are needed to overcome "discrimination and injustice." "In view of the fundamental faith of this country and the clear lan- guage of the Constitution, I do not see how we can do otherwise than adopt such Mr. Tru- man declared in an Armistice day speech at a meeting of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. The President noted that 'just a few hours before he had laid a wreath on the grave of the Urs- known Soldier. "No American knows, and no real American he said, "whether that man was a Catholic, a Jew or a Protestant, or what his origin and color were." Symbol of Unity "That the grave of the Unkown Soldier symbolises our faith and our unity." Mr. Truman indicated that pas- sage of civil rights legislation might do much to spike criticism of the United States by "our enemies" j abroad. "The first step of every enemy jof this country has always been to attempt to separate the different strands of faith and belief out of which this nation has been he asserted. "Our enemies have always tried to set group against group, faith against faith to create prejudice and to spread hate and distrust among our people." And he appeared to be referring to the same "enemies" when he said: "The task of achieving greater justice and freedom will be long and difficult.
