Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 16, 1953, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper HOME EDITION CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS VOL LIX Associated Press and United Press Full Leaso Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITV IOWA MONDAY FEBRUARY 16 1953 This Paper Consists ot Two Ono No lit One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor ThatTrade Not Aid Proposal MTouldnl it be nice if practicing that oftenreferred lo policy o Trade Not Aid was somethini as easy of accomplishment a merely saying it Theres a nca rhyme to it and it fairly rolls of your tongue Try it Trade No Aid As near as I can find out i was Chancellor of the Excheq uer Richard Austin call him RAB Buller over there by reason sof his coined the expression In an inter view with the U S News an World Report the Briton trolled i out as a symbol of his conviclion that economic aid is neither a sound nor an enduring basis for cooperation between the Unitec States and Great Britain In that same interview there was ah indication that British spokes men would soon be visiting Ameri ca as well as Ihe nations of con tinental Europe to seek the col laboration of other countries in plans for expanding production and Parade Has Started And sure enough almost before the ink was dry on that interview Prime Minister Winston Churchili had airived on our shores and was telling this story to shrip reporters In the New York harbor We dont want to live on you we want lo earn our own living we would like to sit up all night and make all kinds of things that we are very clever at making that you would like to have instead of taking grants for armaments and so forth But if you shut Ihe door and wont lake anything il is very difficult to see how this present unsatisfactory situation can be avoided provided we are to re alize our fiill strenglh Exports must be paid for by is what we mean by trade not aid Im sure thats a wise pol icy Of One Mind It Seems Since that before that lime in some cases other European spokesmen lambng the Marshall Plan beneficiaries had given expression to like views There has been an insistent demand for lowering trade barriers and expanding internalional I r a d c Even some of the nations which havent been too good about trad ing with their own neighbors have gone all put for this Trade not aid is in the abstract And on this side of the Atlanlic there has been a ralhcr cordial reception of the proposal even in Quarters which havent always been friendly to the idea of lower ing the tariff gates for competitive imports That trend has eycn ex tended to tha Republican Parly whose principal mark of distinc tion for many decades was its ad vocacy of protective tariffs as op posed lo the rival partys insist ence on tariff for revenue only The evolution I should explain has been gradual It didnt come over night Although opposed to the Reciprocal Trade Agreements in the middlethirties there was sub stantial sentiment for their renewal from time to time among the Re publicans and in the period since the war a majority of the GOP members in Congress have sup ported the Iradc agreements Evolution

probably can be said that although the Republican Party has modified its former stand in favor of high tariffs the tradition of protectionism lingers on The tariff plank of Ihe 1952 plalform for example indorsed trade expan sion and reciprocal trade agree ments But iji doing so placed all the emphasis on promotion of ex ports and the safeguarding of do meslic induslries Imports were softpedaled as youll note from this plank in the Republican plat form We favor the expansion of MUTUALLY advantageous world trade To further this objective we shall press for Ihe climinalion of discriminatory practices against our exports such as preferential tariffs monetary license restric tions and other arbitrary devices Our reciprocal trade agreements will be entered into and maintained on a basis of true reciprocity and to safeguard our domestic enter prises and the payrolls of our workers against unfair competi tion During the campaign the tariif question wasnt permitted to be come a decisive issue There was nothing about the Eisenhower rec ord to indicate that hewas un friendly to the idea of world trade And that interpretation of his feel ings on the subject was borne out
