EDITION VOL LXtV cad Ualtod Pitu rull Wirw onu Copy MASON CITY IOWA DECEMBER Thii Paper of Two OM One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE pm Sunday II Ames UJMS pm Thursday lufncy 930 pm Thursday WsUl la City BIO pm Saturday They Did Not Die in Vain since I returned home from an aroundttieworld journey which look me into Aus tria Hungary and along with nearly 30 other countries Ive been repeating this cryptic prayer Thank God for those Hun garians I have had in mind all those who rose up against Communist tyranny those who died those who remained in Hungary un broken in spirit those who es caped to the free world to fight another day These last named I saw by the hundreds in a Vienna escapee center It has been my broad conten tion that after Communism has fallen as some day it is going to fall as sure as tomorrows sun there willbe among historians I think a disposition to pay high est compliment tothose Hungar ians whorevealed Communism as the dirty stinking thing it is More than a few of my journal istic confreres are so preoccu pied with Russias crash pro grams which while the people live like cattle have produced those gaudy subway systems of and Leningrad and more latterly a pair of Sputniks that they are blind to the even more conspicuousshortcomings and portents of disaster in the Com munist system Reassuring Support I find satisfaction however in the almost unfailing agreement with my point of view existent among journalists our diplomats and other observers who have seen the Russian application ol Marxism over an extendedperiod of timeIts ly visito most in Kremlins And this to one of the most stimulating people Ive met in my career as a journalist an Associated Press correspond ent who covered that bloody up rising of a year ago Endre Mar ton is a native of Hungary but he writes and speaks the English language with a facility that would be the envy of most Americans I chanced to be in his audience at New Orleans recently when he reported on the Hungarian upris ing with an emphasis on its un derlying significance Some of his interpretations were so near ly identical with mine hat Fm afraid I was overimpressed by my own perceptiveness I flatter easily It Wasnt in Vain First of all this cleancut Hun garian faced up to the question Did they fight and die in vain And he came up with an un equivocal NO as his answer And its one greatest value lay in the proof it gave that the fatalistic assumptions with respect to Com munism and its perpetuation are utterly false Brute force he asserted speedily and ruthlessly stifled the Hungarians heroic effort Yet in a larger sense they have triumphed Those thousands did not die in vain In enumerating the revelations of the Hungarian uprising Mar ton began with what he called the fiction of a happy relation ship between Soviet Russia and the satellite countries That one he insisted is destroyed for ever The Soviet Union he added a country that poses as a de fender of nations oppressed by colonialist country is herself the only real colonialist power of our times Hungary today is not even a satellite it is a Russian pro tectorate a country occupied by Russian soldiers and ruled from the Kremlin Kremltn Unmasked The Communists this Hungar ian journalist observed were un masked for all lime Whatever they do or say now nobody on either side of the Iron Curtain will ever forget how they crushed with sheer force one small nations natural aspiration for A second point made by Mar ton is that Communists the world over have been leaving Kremlin leadership like rats from a sink ing ship He mentioned Amer icas Howard Fast Frances Jean Paul Sarte and Spains Pablo CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 1957 CHEER FUND GOAL Previously
