chev goes gadding about the world and thats much of the time it seems he devotes a great deal of attention to be littling Americas program of foreign aid The approach employed by him was well illustrated in a talk given before a crowd in Calcutta last February The burden of his story is that the Western powers meaning United States primarily had never extended a helping hand to India until they became scared of Communism The corollary to this of course was that the aid now given under the spur of this fear is only a weapon of a new colonial policy Com pletely disinterested aid he asserted contrary to cap italism because they meaning the capitalists I assume will only give aid that will get them profits Before going further let me pause here to point out that this is just about as false a state ment as ever came out of the Kremlin which is saying quite a bit The record shows that U S and later other nations gave substantial aid to Asian nations including India long before the USSR decided to1 compete with the west in that part of the world IN HIS CALCUTTA SPEECH Khrushchev specifically de nounced American wheat ship ments as a dole even though admittedly they served to

the Union would not stoop to such stopgap meas ures No siree Soviet assist ance the Russian dictator ex plained consists of lending money and technicians to build factories Thus can India be come economically independ ent Thats the Kremlins story in a nutshell But what Comrade Khrush chev forgot to tell his Calcutta listeners is that the Soviet Union has no surplus foodstuffs to give away To the exact con trary the Kremlin is trying its level best to catch up with America in agricultural pro duction with some help from Iowa NOW weYe just about to turn a leaf or twor of our history books for a little illumination on the counterfeit character of the whole Khrushchev case Were going to see from the record that in theearly years of the Communist revolution involving famine the peo ple of
