Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - August 13, 1951, Mason City, Iowa lowcs Doily Ntwtpoptr N CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THI NIWSFAMI THAT MAKIS ALL NORTH I 0 W ANS N11 IOKS TOfc LIU WMi Onto MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY AUGUST M JI51 Thto Paper Ccoitoto ot Two OlM One Mans ion 0y W EARL HALL Peeking Behind the Iron Curtain ifO a newspaperman one of the 1 most amazing things about communist Russia is the effective ness of its iron curtain Its highly translucent if not wholly opaque Theres agreement that the blinds are drawn more to keep the Rus sians from seeing OUT than to keep outsiders from seeing IN But what actually goes on in interior Russia remains pretty much a mys tery At thistime for example the western world doesnt know what interpretation to place on the kremlins apparent effort to im prove relations between the com munist world and the free world This effort has made itself mani fest in a number of ways and in a number of places To rtart with it was Russias UN delegate Jacob Malik who gave us our cue for opening the ceasefire talks in Korea Along with throwing out thn peace feel er he dwelt on the possibility of a peaceful coexistence of capi talism and socialism and on co operation among the great powers New Magaaine in English Within the month too in Mos cow a new Englishlanguage magazine has been established dedicated according to its own words to acloser understandinj between the of the Soviet Union and the AngloAmerican first issue it elab ortted on the points Malik pre viously had made in his Korean truce suggestion before the UN Then even more recently Malik back in Moscow for what he termed a vacation leave from UN told a visiting delegation oi British Quakers that the Soviet Union was prepared for negotia tions of a business like character1 on world issues The kremlin he insisted is not interested in ex porting revolution And at about the same time for Iticolumni lor a menage toj the Russian peo HerbertMorrisonBritish foreign Will File Truman for Oregon Test President Truman was told Monday by Oregons democratic itate chair man Monroe SweetLand that his name will be filed as a candidate in Oregons democratic presiden tial primary next May Sweetland talking with re alter calling on Mr Trii nan at the white house said lie told the president it was the overwhelming sentiment of Oregon democrats that he be a candidate lot reelection in 1952 Lteteav Asked what the presidents re action was Sweetland replied pointed out He The Oregonian Speeders Motorists who repeatedly vio late Mason Citys speed laws are going to go to jail Mayor Howard f Bruce announced Monday The mayor made this announce ment after consulting with mem bers of the citys safety commit tee Police Judge B R Police Chief AlLstot arid City Attorney Ray Clough Members of the safety committee are Council men Oscar Jewell C Z Lefler and LloydMcGee A number of complaints about speeders have been received the mayor said Speeding is a dan that a candidate does not have to consent to the filingof his name in and can not for that matter cause his name to be withdrawn after it is filed The Oregon democratic presi dential primary next spring could pit Mr Truman against Senator Douglas now feuding with the presidentover the tet ters nominations for federal judgeships in Illinois A candidates name goes into Oregons primaries on the basis of a petition by 1000 voters A pe tition for Douglas already is be ing circulated Sweetland said So Is a petition backing Senator Ke fauver for vice pres ident Tare Sweetland told reporters there had been talk of entering Gen Dwight D Eisenhower as a pres dential candidate in the Oregon primaryon both the democratic and republican tickets but he ex pressed belief that Eisenhowers name could not be filed unless the general declares himself by next April 6 as to party affilia tion Senator Thye pre dicted Monday that Gen Dwight D Eisenhower will sweep Min nesotas open presidential pri mary next spring if his name is entered And Senator Cain said Senator Taft would be elected president if he got the republican nomination Cain interviewed on a television program declined to say how ever whether Taft wai per sonal choice sue the kremHn greater amount of to reply tOi the Motrtaon letter DM liMJiiif Sec It the wnoli matter could be taken at face there is a question about this even though ironically enough Pravda mean truth in bit of journalistic enterprise may Ihrow more light on whafsgoinff on be hind the iron curtainand in the mind of Joe Stalin than any de velopment of recent months It may of course be a reflec tion of my instinctive suspicion o all things communistic that Im wondering whether the Morrison letter and the kremlins reply toj it ever actually got into the hands of the Russian reading public It could so easily have been a lim ited issufc of Pravda for the bene fit of the western world In the case of the English language magazine to which Ive referred there obviously will be a limited reading This is guaran teed by the fact that ifs printed in English and theres a and of Rus sians who can speak English A Russianlanguage publication in our own country would have a limited readership same reason Sequel to a Dare The Morrison letter came about as the sequel to a dare The new British foreign secretary in chid ing the communists expressed the that they would be afraid to let a Briton speak his mind in a communist newspaper as com munists are permitted to speak their mind in a British newspaper he might have added an American newspaper When the heavy bass voice in the kremlin said ahead say what you will about us Mr Morrison was confronted with one of the most challenging journalis tic assignments imaginable How would YOU have met such an as signment Suppose YOU were asked to state in a 1000 or maybe 1500 words the best reasons why a Wore Taxes Agreed On By EDWIN B Chairman DWyo said Mon day there appears to be general agreement in his congressional economic committee that expen ditures must to a mini mum and taxes increased He made the statement to re porters after the committee stud ied a staff report warning of prob able rising prices more inflation and 3 years of federal deficits There was general agreement DMatioriey said that inflation is the most serious threat to the po sition that this country is taking in the world The American economy is the principal bulwark of the free world He said that in the absence of a committee quorum the report was not adopted Monday But among members present he said there was no criticism of the report anc no objections Main theme of the report ap peared to be arguments in suppon of gerous proposition and we are joing to have more drastic en iorcement of speed laws Mayor Bruce announced the f pl owing program to deal with speeders 1 Jail sentences plus fines for repeaters The mayor said city ordinances give Judge Dunn ample authority to deal with speeders as he may see fit He said Judge Dunn also

case for the government that ex ists in Britain today as could be made by anybody in the labor re gime Doubtless he had the help of its best minds By stressing the point that free access to right to
