Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 23, 1953, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper HOME EDITION MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH lOWANS NEIGHBORS VOL LIX Press and United Pnas fall Lease Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY MARCH 23 1953 Jhls Consists of Two One No Itt One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor A World Order Based on LAW TTS fortunate for the challenging cause of world order based on law that Norman Cousins took time out from his breadwinning busi ness of reading and appraising the books of others to write one of his own My guess is that his book will have greater value and sig nificance than 99 out of 100 of the volumes dealt with by this brilliant young man as editor of the always stimulating Saturday Review of Literature Titled Who Speaks for Man the Cousins book stales most elo quently the case for United World Federalism with which for sev eral years he has been actively associated Adlai Stevenson during his vacation trip to Barbados took time out to read the Cousins book and in his review of it for the Sat urday Review alluded to it as a formidable brief in the case for en law Thats the lawyers reaction to it Who Speaks for Man On the front jacket of the 318 page book from the Macmillan Press beneath the title Who Speaks for Man is this penetrat ing observation drawn from one of the chapters within Belonging to a nation man has nations that can speak for him Belonging to a religion man has re ligions that can speak for him Be longing to an economic and social order man has economic or po lilical orders that can speak for him But belonging to the human race man is without a spokes man That sort of hits you as a chal lenge It piques your interest and whets your curiosity You wondei if this lack of a spokesman for the individual as a member of the hu manraceis something that can be remedied Youre conditioned for Bitter Speech in UN Czechs Rip Into US for AntiRed Efforts UNITED NATIONS N Y satellite Czecho slovakia ripped into the United States Monday for allegedly Drying to subvert that countrys Communist regime U S Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr immediately re plied that the Red Czech government which seized power in some soberthinking about role in an atomic age Its a Book of your Commies Launch Fierce Assault Say Hiss Reported on UN to Lie WASHINGTON officer Monday security described the State Department office of Alger Hiss as the reservoir from which names of more than 477 American job seekers were sent to the United Nations If your prime interest is in find Ing entertainment Jjshould wars you against this Norinah Cousins book It has a few wellspacec smiles but no bellylaughs hasten however to add that the story is charged with hope The author takes no dim view of the potentialities of the human animal There are he observes At one point deeper resources of cour age and regeneration in human beings than any of the philoso phers had dared to believe At the same time however Mr Cousins studiously avoids both the appearance and the fact of mini mizing the problem of survival in our atomicage or the oversimpli fication of any aspect of its solu tion He faces up to the Russian situation andthe harrier it consti tutes in any path to peace Would he keep Russia outside the program for maintaining the peace within the framework of the United Nations Not at all Quite the contrary He hopes that Russia will feel required to join up on a basis of enlightened selfinterest Communism Isnt Everthing Nor does Ke view Russia or Com munism as the sole consideration in our pursuit of peace Even if Communism caved in and disap peared from the world scene Cousins reasons there still remain the threat of World War III One tyranny has always been succeeded by another and usually worse tyranny Europe he observes WASHINGTON State De partment official testified Monday that Alger Hiss made unofficial reports to the United Nations in 1946 on Americans seeking UN jobs William L Franklin special as sistant to the departments security director told a House Judiciary Subcommittee that department tiles show Hiss sent lists of names o UN Secretary General Trygve Lie despite a hands off policy adopted by then Secretary of State James F Byrnes Jail Term In 1946 Hiss was director of the State Departments office of spe cial political affairs He is now serving a jail term on conviction of perjury for denying that he passed secrets to the Communists while he was in the State Depart ment The House Judiciary Committee is looking into reports of Commu rust infiltration among Americans employed by the UN Before Franklin look the witness chair the subcommittee made pub lie a letter from Byrnes now gov ernor of South Carolina saying he alone was responsible for the pol icy of his administration that the State Department would make no recommendations as to Americans applying for jobs with the UN He denied specifically that Hiss hat anything to do with formulating this policy 3day coup detat in 1948 itself the chief example f subversion in modern times and as in no position to accuse the S of it Bitter Blast The bitter blast against the U S of the strongest ever heard the over the UNs 0 nation Political Committeeas hat group returned from a week nd during which many delegates ad tried to assess reported peace novcs by the Kremlin The peech by Czech Foreign Minister aclav David dashed hopes at east temporarily L N Palar of Indonesia had uggested that the committee post one discussion of the Czech barges and take up an omnibus olish peace plan instead He said been chewed up by war continuous ly since there was a Europe to fight centuries before anyone ever heard of Lenin or Stalin Norman Cousins in his book Who Speaks for Man doesnt spend much time on the question of whether world government is pos sible Rather he takes the position that it is inevitable and not to be changed by mere argument Which Shall It Be World government he maintains Is inevitable because the world has become a geographic unit am the means and the power are a1 hand to give it organization The real questions he adds are these Will it come in time to avert a new war Will it come about as the fesuli Of a war What kind of government will it be Will it be a government o clearly defined and limited pow ers t Or will it be a world totalitarian The alternative to the kind world government envisioned by him and his fellow World Federal tots is the Communist world gov t CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 Des Moines Woman
