Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY NOVEMBER 18 1954 This Paper of Two On No 34 Bureau Defense by Hill Annual Report to Members DES MOINES tfl E Howard Hill president of the Iowa Farm Bureaus Federation deplores what he says is a tendency to label that organization as Hill made this observation Wednesday in his annual report to members attending the fed erations annual convention He noted that the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation now has an alltime high in membership of For 35 years Hill said the Farm Bureau has been a proving ground and has stood the tests rather We make no Hill went on for defending the basic principles and concepts of our eco nomic and political systems Dignity Stressed We believe in the dignity of the individual in the basic principles of private enterprise in democ racy and Hill listed the Bureau stand on a number of specific issues and then asked after each Liberal or con servative reactionary or radical Among them were foreign policy international commerce the full employment act taxes farm sup ports and education We have had Hill making up our minds about social security for farmers and other selfemployed But on the foreign policy he de clared the Farm Bureau has re peatedlyand consistently stated that isolationism is On international trade the bu reau has pointed out time after time that many friendly nations around the world have but two choices Trade or declared the bureau believed it unnecessary for the nation to go through serious recessions or in flationary periods and to that end had supported the full employment act setting forth the responsibility of the government to provide em ployment opportunities for all Taxation and fiscal policies should be utilized the bureau

and on Capi tol Hill is this Whats Bill Knowland up to Bill Knowland is handsome Sen William F Knowland the Republican leader of the Senate For that job he was hand picked by his predecessor Robert A who also used to speak harshly of United States foreign policy But Taft was more gentle than harsh after President Eisen hower took office He was count ed a firm and able administra tion spokesman until he died in the summer of 1953 The Knowland mystery has all hands guessing Officials ply newspaper reporters with ques tions about Knowlands program about as often as the reporters inquire and the answer is not yet The senator had an aggres sive and effective record of opposing United States policy in Korea Red China and especial ly Formosa when the Congress and White House were Demo cratic Knowland Thursday renewed his call for a diplomatic break with Russia saying action would impose a moral sanc tion against any further expan sion of Communist influence Eisenhower has rejected a pre vious proposal by Knowland for a break in diplomatic relations with Moscow declaring that a way of living together in peace with the Russians must be found Knowlands concentration on the Pacific and Formosa caused him finally to be referred to as the senator from that island But in recent months his interest has veered and broadened consider ably If there is substantial congres sional support for his point of view it has not shown itself since Knowlands latest statement The administration instantly slapped the idea down Defense Secretary Charles E Wilson believed the choice offered was chill and try to live in peace with the Russians if that be pos sible or have a war Knowland however explained that he was not proposing preventive war The Republican controlled 83rd session of Congress is reeling to ward its final adjournment with the Senate debating one of its members in special session and the mystery of Knowlands politi cal strategy becoming more mys terious every day Some more cynical observers suggest that geography has something to do with the senators more recent point of view although none im ply that Knowland was not sin cere in his anxiety about Red intentions Knowland might break with the Eisenhower administration on foreign policy and still hold his own or better among Californians who are sensitive to all Asia The vice president is bound to the
