Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 30, 1953, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home LOBEbAZETTE Associated Press anil United Press Full Lease Wires NEWSPAPER THAT M A K I S A L L N 0 R T H IOWANS NEIGHBORS 1 v HOME EDITION Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY NOVEMBER 30 1953 This Paper Consists Ono No 44 One Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor But They Are BOTH Poison T hope you are not one who har x bors the notion that the Com munism of Tito is essentially dif ferent better Communism of Lenin Stalin and Malenkov From a closeup look at it in Belgrade Yugoslavia and from a study of it at a distance I am persuaded that they are the same poison in two different bottles Somebody has said one is arsenic and the other strychnine Thats changing my metaphor a little bit but I about the mat ter Whats important is that the contents of either or the kill you In some quarters theres an ef fort under Avay at this time to make it appear that Yugoslavia is edging over from Communism to our kind of Democracy under the influence of our dollarwooing But dont you believe it Any resem blance between Titos Marxism and our way of life is produced with mirrors It isnt real The naked truth is that we picked up Tito as an ally in 1948 in exactly the same way that we picked up Stalin as an ally back in 1941 We had a common enemy whom we disliked more than we did each other Its as simple as that In Diplomacy and War And thats the way in diplomacy as well as in war The current ac quisition of Spains fascist Gen Francisco Franco is a case in point at the other end of the line Hes the extremist at the right balanced off by Josip Broz alias MarshallTito at the extreme left A nationneeding doesnt go to the trouble of inquir ing about the ideology or the back ground of a prospect It isnt choosy It just asks a couple of simple questions IWill this fellow be on our side when thechips are down 2 Does he have something to contribute to ou reside An affirmative Lnsyer to these questions brought Stalin to our side during World War II and an affirmative answer to these ques tions brought both Tito and Franco to our side in the years since then We have good reason to believe that neither of them has any more love for the Kremlin than we have Hes Been Expensive In the five years since Yugo slavias expulsion from the so called coniinform successor to the Communist Internationale back in 1948 it was the United States has poured around mil lion into Titoland Our investment will probably be even somewhat higher than that in Spain As I prepare this little visit with you I have before me a copy of the Yugoslav Review described in its editorial mast as the Trieste issue of the Review of International Affairs It is published by the Yugoslav Information Center in New York City Its the Tito story of course One of the featured articles is titled Some Principles of Social ist Democracy in Yugoslavia Its author Jovan Djprdjevic is identi fied as a professor in Belgrade Uni versity and Secretary for Legisla tion and Organization in the Fed eral Executive Council That means hes high in Communist party af fairs A Travesty on Lincoln Most of the piece is devoted to suggesting that Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address must have had something like Titoism in mind when he referred to the govern ment of the people by the people for fthe people All is sweetness and light until you get to the sec ond page The parallels drawn by the writer are most touching Then whamie You come to this para graph On the other hand Socialist De mocracy is not guided by any dog mabut uses Marxist scientific method to discover and develop so cial political and ideological forms and methods of raising science knowledge and culture to higher levels That first in the article not written with crossed fin the basic fact about TitoSsm namelythat its drawn from the teachings of Karl Marx inventor of and sticks to the Marxist party line in so far as its possible or practicable in a country which has accepted it only because there was a gun at its temple No Retreat From Marxism In my time at Belgrade not so many months ago I had several hours with members of Titos cab inet and some of his topranking military leaders One after another CONTINUED ON PACE 2 LETTER TO SANTA CLAUSIt doesnt takeTpsTchm trist to

compromise plan to let Kussia sitin on the conference as a neighbor of Korea taking part as a third with full voting privileges JJean s suggestion was a revision of earlier UN demands that a
