Russia for world leadership He could and did point to a lot of trouble spots He could and did say that if the Eisenhower Administration had pursued some other tack things would have been bettefc A Case of Forgetting If there was one feature of the Stevenson presentation more open to effective rebuttal than all others it was his assumption that everything was peaches and cream when President

youre trying to dispose of Eisenhower of course made two speeches One of them was given in a formal way from manuscript Thats the one you heard on radio and TV There wasnt anything too exciting about it In a sense it was an answer to the Stevenson charges of inept diplomacy lodged against lohn Foster Dulles and his asso ciates in the State Department Ike at His Smiling Best Then the President turned to the type of speaking in which he excels He rose at this place at the speakers table in the giant Statler Presidential hall and talked off the cuff for a dozen or fifteen minutes It was far more effective than the stiff formal address prepared and delivered for the radio and TV public The plain unadulterated truth is that Mr Eisenhower does not read ivell when hes working from manuscript The point of greatest interest In the Stevenson talk was his pro posal of a moratorium with re spect to the development of hy drogen weapons It was his as sumption that if the Russians broke their word it would be come known immediately to the world because of the scientific means of picking up atomic and hydrogen bomb blasts In the Eisenhower talk there were two points that claimed the headlines One of these was his assumption that the new face be ing presented by the Kremlin through the downgrading of Josef Stalin is an unmistakable sign of weakness You dont CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

hand in picking their partys nominees the belief has oped that their outcome repre sents the will of ihe people Small Turnouts It has not been shaken to any noticeable extent by the fact that few states hold primaries and in only a halfdozen are the results binding on convention delegates or by the further fact thai a mic roscopic fraction of the nations citizens bother to vote in them leaving most of the action to the politicians and the newsmen who must report what they say and do Thus as everyone knows Stev enson and Kefauver face cru cial financially cost ly Oregon May 18 Flor ida May

Oregon and several other places 1944 Race No candidate can amass enough firmly pledged delegate votes in the 18 states and two territories which hold primaries to win a nomination Party partisans know the only real value of practically all of them is psychological That has made the primaries serious business despite their lack of appeal to the mass of voters this early in the election year Thus the results have and could be crucial to some candidates as folks gener ally believe them to be In 1944 Wendell L Willkie quit his campaign for another Repub lican nomination when he lost the Wisconsin primary In 1948 Harold E Stassen ended the presidential drive of Gen Doug las MacArthur in the Wisconsin primary then saw his own chances for the Republican noml nation evaporate at the hands of Gov Thomas E Dewey in Ore gon Gen Eisenhowers interest in the Republican candidacy four years ago was some say even the total primary votes he got in New Hampshire and Min nesota This year Stevensons sure

greeted with stormy applause by the crowd was turned loose on orders of the High Court Delays Decision on Internal Security Act WASHINGTON URSpIitting 63 the Supreme Court Monday put off at least for a year a ruling on constitutionality of the 1950 Internal Security Act The majority said it did so to permit a finding whether per jured testimony led to a govern ment order that the Communist Party register as a tool of Mos cow The dissenters charged the court was ducking the issue to gain time before the final or der to register becomes effec tive The majority told the Subver sive Activities Control Board it may hold further hearings to de termine whether to disregard the testimony of turnabout witness Harvey Matusow and two other former Communists Or said the majority opinion by Justice Frankfurter the board may assume the truth of the partys claim and expunge the questioned testimony from the record There is no chance the case can come back before the high tribunal before next year The dissenters Justices Clark Reed and Minton retorted sharp ly Clark said he and his two col leagues abhor the use of perjured testimony as much as anyone but we must recognize that nev er before have mere allegations of perjury so flimsily supported been considered grounds for re opening a proceeding or granting a new announcement said As a result of the revolt by about 70 civilians the government cancelled constitutional guaran tees for 45 days The government of President Fulgencio Batista said the revolt at the Domingo Goicuria army base just outside Matanzas had been crushed swiftly with 11 rebels killed and a number wounded It said only three Cuban soldiers were wounded The army announced that former President Carlos Prio So carras who has been repeatedly charged with plotting against the government had been arrested with a number of his friends When word of the revolt reached Havana Batista report edly left the capital to take per sonal command of the army The

enhower sent word to Congress Monday that any substantial cuts in his foreign aid program at this time would greatly endanger the security of the United Eisenhowers view was relayed to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by Secretary of State Dulles following a White House conference His appearance sig naled the start of an administra tion campaign to persuade a dubi ous Congress to approve the big foreign aid program including a new provision for longterm eco nomic aid commitments Dulles said Russia has changed its tactics because the effective ness of this countrys foreign aid program and mutual security pacts had made it unprofitable for the Soviets to follow their old No Changes But he warned that the Commu nist new look does not warrant our curtailing our mutual secur ity Nothing has yet happened to make it prudent to terminate or curtail the present he said It would be indeed ironic if now that the Soviet has begun giving aid to its allies in terms of billions and offering economic aid to free nations in terms of hundreds of millions the United States should withdraw from that program which rtinyented and let the Soviet take over tMt Dulles told the Senate group Dulles who recently advocated broadening the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to something more than a military pact said he does not propose that the NATO council be used to distri bute economic aid War Dangers He said the Organization for European Economic Cooperation OEEC is available for expan sion of the NATO idea and would be more useful in economic mat ters than the NATO council be cause it contains some countries such as Austria Switzerland and Sweden which are not NATO members However Dulles danger of general said the war seems somewhat less and that is an im mense However he said their change is not due to any spiritual conversion They have not gotten religion They realistically take account of what the free nations have done to make violence an unprofitable If we want them to continue to desist from violence we had better continue doing the things which have led them to desist Our policies are paying off in this respect but that is not a reason for abandoning the policies but tnr continuing them Dulles said Eisenhower told lim only Monday morning that to have this program appreci ably reduced interfered with or put in jeopardy would gravelyen
