Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 21, 1962, Mason City, Iowa Daily Newspaper Edittd for LOBE VOL 102 newspaper that makes all North I o wa n s n e i g h b o rs MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 21 W2 V 21 1MZ tTe a Consists of Four SectionsSection On HOME EDITION No If Key role is played by lowan Hes the new Vandenberg By ROWLAND EVANS JR Ntw York Herald Tribunt News Service WASHINGTON Occasional ly words are spoken in the Sen ate that have a high national significance far beyond the im mediacy of the moment asthese spoken In the flat somewhat brittle accents of Iowa were heard there recently when Sen Bourke Hickenlooper made a brief re port on the OAS meeting at Punta del Este What he said was important much as an endorsement of Secretary of State Rusk although that in itself is inter esting enough It was import ant because Sen Hickenlooper is unquestionably on his way to becoming the indispensable Republican senator in the ad ministrations foreign policy designs the Arthur Vanden berg if you will of the Ken nedy administration Talking about Rusk Sen Hickenlooper told the Senate that he had never seen a more able vigorous patient con sistent and statesmanlike ap proach to the issues involved at Punta del Este than that demonstrated by the Secretary of State Husk has a brilliance of mind and a patience which I am frank to say I could not find within myself I think I would have blown my stack several times a day if I had had to endure the disquieting and irritating things which he en dured with tremendous patience and kindness and yet with com plete vigor and firmness Hickenlooper of course was there at Punta del Este as part of the small bi partisan delega tion of Congressional advisers The Democrats were wise to send him there Sen Fiilbrigbt the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee was wise to have suggested to Kennedy at dinner on Feb 19 that he invite Sen Hiekenlooper to the White House for a chat before Hickenlooper left the next day for Punta del Este Hickenlooper is without ques tion the most important Repub lican on Fulbrights committee But his importance to President Kennedy goes well beyond his standing as number one Repub lican on the Foreign Relations Committee He is also senior Republican senator on the Joint Atomic Energy Committee And finally he is the chairman of the Sen ate Republican Policy Com mittee From these three van tage points the Senator from the onetime bastion of isola tionism is in a fair way to mak ing or breaking Republican sup port for the President in almost any foreign policy enterprise you care to name As it happens Sen Hicken looper has no thought today of obstructing a single one of the Presidents foreign policies He disagrees on many details but on no fundamentals During the whole first year of the Kennedy administration the serious partisan disputes over foreign policy could be wrapped up together and dropped into a thimble Debate there has been of course de
