We are imperceptibly pass- ing Into another period of acute crisis, comparable in some ways to the crisis period that produced the Marshall plan. I One cause of this new crisis is] the tempo of Soviet rearmament. At i. now be disclosed, Secretary of State Dean G. Ache- son gave the solemn opinion that the Kremlin's war preparations would at least reach a preliminary climax in 1953-54. Acheson's time estimate was ac- cepted by his fellow foreign min- isters, despite some wishful ten- dencies in certain quarters. The time schedule for the western de- fense effort under the Atlantic Pact was thus defined and estab- lished. THE OTHER CAUSE of the cri- sis is the sudden realization of the present weakness ol the West.

The contrast between Western weakness and rapid Soviet war preparation has in turn produced the new crisis, which is essentially a crisis of will and leadership in the West.

For the pres- ent, our atomic weapons and strat- egic aviation, our troops in Ger- many and other factors still con- tinue to serve as decisive deter- rents to Soviet aggression. The danger is, rather, in the future, the existing deterrents will cease to operate because of the great growth of Soviet armed strength. What must be done, therefore, Is to build up balanced and solid Western forces. Only thus can we continue to deter the Kremlin from (Continued on Page 15, Column 4) ALSOP Truman Names VA Review Group pically American enterprise In the building of a safe and prosperous world."

Prime Minister Siheru Yoshida's conservative Liberal party and the Social Democrats continued to make a one-sided race for domi- nance. The Liberals had 39 of the 98 seats already decided. The Social- ists who showed the most surpris- ing surge of influence had won 29. Thirteen independents, two farm co-operative and one farmer la- borite were elected. No Commu- nists have been successful so far. The Democratic party had only seven victories. These results gave the Liberals a gain of two seats over those they had at stake in the campaign.

Wis. i Employed at the Boland Manu- facturing Company in Winona since last fall, Scholimeier was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Scholi- meier who reside on a1 farm near I here. Scholimeier, a catcher, suffered jhis injury while batting during the i eighth inning of a Pastime league game involving his Bohri's Valley team and Dodge. At bat in the first half of the eighth Scholimeier wag struck by a pitched ball thrown by Dodge Pitcher Hubert Kramer. Scholimeier sought to duck out of the way of the pitched ball but was struck behind the left ear. Stunned momen'arily by the blow, Schollmeiex- was not knock- ed unconscious and protested the requests of his teammates that he leave the game. He did retire to the bench, how- ever, and sat out the remainder of the game. A fellow employe at the Boland company who was watching the game came to Scholi- meier soon after the mishap and asked whether he wanted to be taken to a physician. The Bohri's Valley player repli- ed, "Why no, I feel all right." En route home to Fountain City. with the team, Scholimeier sud- denly became critically ill and was taken to a Fountain City phy- sician Immediately upon arrival. Examination by. the physician indicated a possible skull fracture and a Stevens Service ambulance from Winona was called to take the injured man to a Rochester hospital. It was found at the hospital that Scholimeier had suffered a severe skull fracture and he died at the hospital shortly after 7 a.m. to- day.
