a twoway street getting as well as giving ac ceplance among all who are will ing to cast off their preconeeived notions and prejudices and look at the subject in perspective In the years when he was serv ing as administrator of the so Marshall Plan Paul G Hoffman observed repeatedly that the program not only could but must justify itself on the basis of enlightened selfinterest Those who viewed it as charity set to the national dimension he reasoned were not seeing the picture in its entirety Two visits to the countries di rectly affected by the Marshall Plan as well as to the countries further east Turkey and Greece which benefited from the so called Truman Doctrine ahead of the Marshall Plan have con vinced me that the Hoffman point of view was eminently sound and borne out by results In my travels into some 50 na tions of the world I have been persuaded that at least 20 of them have been saved from Com munism by the financial eco nomic and military assistance ex tended to them The list would include all of the Marshall Plan countries in West ern Europe plus Turkey Greece all of the Middle East except Egypt and Syria currently buddying up to the Kremlin and all of southeastern Asia Purchased Friendships Whether there is a proper rec ognition and appreciation of our part in saving them from the of Communism 1 Its present among catastrophe dont know those who can read and reason but Im not at all sure that it has filtered down to the masses more interested in a full belly than in things as academic as making manifest their appreciation If affection or even a dem onstrable gratitude were the only thing we were trying to achieve with our assistance in its various forms I would take a dim view of the investment A purchased friendship as between individuals is a pretty fragile proposition among nations it is I think even more nebulous and transitory What the Paul Hoffman pre mise bottomed on was what has come to be almost a truism namely that poverty and eco nomic unhappiness anywhere in our world is likely to lessen pros perity and economic well being EDWARD BABCOCK Mason Cifyan Will Head Iowa 40 8 DAVENPORT Edward Bab cock Mason City was elected

voice vote with only a few dissenters although Reps Rees RKan and Gross RIowa ar gued that if taxes were to be cut the cutting should start some where other than in night clubs The House Ways and Means Committee estimated the revenue loss from thereduction at 21 mil lion dollars a year It said some of this would be offset by in creases in income tax collections The committee said the 20 per cent tax was discriminatory be cause most other excise rates are only 10 per cent The 20 per cent rate it said has proved to be a substantial deterrent to the em ployment of musicians and other
