Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Showers Tonight, Generally Fair Saturday Afternoon SEND YOUR LETTERS BY AIRMAIL VOLUME 52, NO. 100 FIVE CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 13, 1952 EIGHTEEN PAGES TODAY Russ Planes Spy On America By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON Another of those moments has come which most people in this country have hopefully believed never would come, even though their coming was logically inevitable. In brief, the active reconnais- sance of this continent by the So- viet equivalent of a wing of TU- 4s, or perhaps two wings, moved into new bases on Kamchatka, across the Bering Strait from Alaska. Since then, the air recon- naissance has been going forward. Four claimed contrails, which are the vapor trails left by air- craft flying at altitude, have been sighted in recent months. Of these claimed sightings, two have been dismissed after careful investiga- tion as probably the result of spe-1 cial atmospheric conditions and cloud effects. But two others, one j on the north Alaskan coast and one in northern Canada, are held to have been the genuine traces of Soviet air reconnaissance mis- sions. And the Alaskan sighting, at least, is further held to have been confirmed by the evidence of I the radar net. More Information Needed This development both is and is not a cause for deep concern. To begin with the sedative arguments, this air reconnaissance of our con- tinent which the Soviets have now started is only the equivalent of what we have been doing for some time past. Our long-range aircraft have been flying reconnaissance operations on the Siberian coast since before Korea: and they have gone in far enough for intercep- tion to be attempted on more than one occasion. Equally, there can be very little doubt that the Navy Privateer shot down over the Bal- tic a couple of years ago was also on reconnaissance duty. j In the case of the best-confirm-1 ed Soviet venture into our that in northern is; even some doubt about whether j the Russian four-motored bomber passed the off-shore line where itj had a right to fly.

In short, even though Cana- dian territory was certainly violat- ed if the second probable sighting genuine, there is nothing im- mediately warlike in this new de- velopment. On the other hand, the develop- ment is a grim warning; and it is reasonable to be concerned be- cause the warning is not being acted on.

But it would end all curbs on consumer and real estate credit, a point at odds with the one-year extension of credit restrictions voted by the Senate. In final action on the measure last night, the committee added no major provisions which had not previously been approved. Its most important action reportedly was a new provision, adopted 17 to 5, to drop a price regulation requiring certain reports from dealers who sell at below-ceiling prices.
