the ability to attain the attanuble Thats a pretty unromantic approach to the subject but theres a large 1 measure of realism in it One of the first imperatives for a statesman is that he know whats worth fighting for and what is not History offers no better ex ample of this than our own Abraham Lincoln As an Illinois legislator Abe once slid out of a window to avert a quorum when he sensed that he was beaten on his bill to move the state capitol from Vandalia to Springfield As President he was a realist too In diplomacy a field closely related to statesmanship we tind a like stress on the prag matic Nations including our own choose their friends and allies on a cold turkey basis This gave us Red Russia in World War II The choice was Hitler We thought we were picking the lesser of two evils Now were not so sure Its high ly debatable Under this same formula in I the cold war these past 15 yearsl we have come up with some widely dissimilar allies Theyve run the political spectrum from Marxist Tito of Yugoslavia to Fascist Franco of Spain We took them for whatthey were for one and only one reason We thought they would be helpful to our cause Our Investment in Yugoslavia for all types of aid since Titos break with Stalin in 1948 has to taled about two and a half bil lion dollars Part of it has been military although weve had our qualms about this We havent been confident enough of Tito to trust him with a very sizable military build up Economic aid to Yugoslavia has been largely in the form of surplus agricul tural commodities Whether this outlay of funds and goods has been worth while cant be said with finality We know whats happened by doing we arent too pleased with it particularly Titos surly attitude But we dont and cant know what would have happened if we had not given encouragement to Tito when he broke with the Kremlin Its a significant how ever that those in the best posi tion to judge under three ad ministrations Truman Eisen hower and Kennedyshave been strongly in favor of continuing the assistance as a calculated risk This could be stated con versely of course The most vigorous criticism has come from those seeking support for their angrtf contention that our State Department is soft on communism Aid has been extended to the Tito regime on the theory tha it serves the interests of the free world to keep Yugoslavia from domination by the Soviet Union Some developments of recen weekshowever have thrown doubt on whether Tito would side with the free world in a show down against the Kremlin was the meeting of socalled neutralists in Belgrade in Octo that brought the question into focus The meeting was called by Tito In his to the delegates he seemed to go out of his way to back USSR policies with respect to Berlin and with respect to nuclear war Moscow showed its disdain for the Belgrade meeting and the whole body of opinion in our world by touching off a giant nuclear bomb The act drew from Tito this weakkneed statement We were not surprised so much by the resumption of atomic and hydrogen weapon tests because we could under stand the reasons We were sur prised more by the fact that this was done on the opening of this conference of peace And except for some rather pointed references to the matter Turn to Page 2 Please FROM OUR WIEE SERVICES North towa Clearing dimin ishing winds Monday night lows
