that Uncl Sam is without a single friend in this old world of ours On th basis of a visit to 30 differen countries in the past six months Im ready to set that view down as utterly false Its as mistaken as it is melancholy As a matter of fact it comes pretty close to being 180 degrees wide of the mark Never within my memory and I question whether within the history of our republic has the United States had as many nations definitely on her side as at this moment Lets examine the situation for a few minutes First lets deal with and dispose of our enemies These naturally include the Communist orbit with the Kremlin calling the tune for Russia and her satellites But lets stop long enough to define terms Our reference it should be under stood is to the government no to the people of these Commu nistenslaved nations No one impression gained by me during my January visit to Russias three largest cities Mos cow Leningrad and Kiev was more sharply drawn and unqual ified than that the Kremlins 40 year campaign of hate against America has missed its target Not one slight sign of unfriendli ness toward Americans did I de tect during my time in Russia Technique Fails If of the Russian people there would seernttobe no reason in logic for a differem attitude toward America a n c Americans on the part of rank and file citizens in China or other Iron Curtains countries The big lie technique originated by Hitler and modified by the Kremlin i still a long way from perfect in its operation Im fully convinced Next we move on to Britain anc France It would be ridiculous to contend that our popularity in those countries hasnt undergone a severe deflation in the past sev en or eight months The reasons for the rift between us and our historic allies arent hard to find The precipitating force oi course was the Suez Canal crisis of last autumn when the British and French took military action without so much as consulting the United States But there were un derlying factors and considera tions which went considerably deeper than Suez or Nasser or Israeli The Frtnch Mess in Asia In the case of France there was a growing dissatisfaction on the part of our State Department with the kind of colonialism which led to Frances expulsion from southeastern Asia and which has led to an impossible situation in North Africa We didnt like to be associated with such a messy af fair When I was in North Africa a half dozen years ago on a fact finding mission I foresaw precise ly what is happening in that part of the world at the present time And I dont even pretend to be a prophet At that time Americans in our diplomatic corps were hav ing to walk a razor thin line On the one hand they were hav ing to avoid involvement in the difficulties in such a way as to make our country seem disloyal to an old and appreciated ally France has been at our side in four At the same time we didnt want to give the appear ance of approving an impressed colonialism for the North Africans while we were voluntarily grant ing independence to the Filipinos Repetition of Asia Story All in all the wonder is that the troubles in North Africa didnt come to a head long before they did Contained steam has an enormous explosive force It doesnt require any powers of prophecy to foretell ultimate de feat for France in North Africa The Asia story is on the way to being repeated The explanation of the Anglo American rift isnt this short and simple It involves an assortment i CONTINUID ON PAGE 2 Emit Rosenau Jerry Allstot Are Victims Two Mason Cityans died over the weekend in
