Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 5, 1953, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for tht CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL LIX Associated Prest United Press Full Ltaso Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY OCTOBER 5 1953 TUIs Paper Consists ot Two One No 301 One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor Must We Wait for Time to Yell T wouldnt be honest with you if didnt admit at the outset of thi little visit with you that Im con than that Im down right the growing evi dence of a division in the free work over the important question of how we should deal with the Commu nists The position is pretlj well summarized by the observa tipnmade on several occasions b President Eisenhower effec that the Kremlin will be judged b its deeds rather than by its words Its what the Communists DO no what they say theyll do tha counts High sounding abstractions abou wanting peace wanting to do away witb nuclear fission bombs am wanting to elevate the standards of living for people all over the world are a mere mockery so long as the course pursued by the Com munists on orders from the lih are directly contrary to those goals Thats the way the United States looks at the matter But it isnt alas the way some of our com pamon countries in the free world look at it I say some of our com panion countries but it would I suspect be more accurate to say MOST of our companion coun tries Were Going It Alone On a roll call based on this test all pressures were removed from those responding Im not sure that wed have more than a half dozen countries definitely on our side The loudest voicej ol course would be South Korea and in the background would be Tur key Greece West Germany and a few other countries which know Communisms loathsome charac ter through contact with it Britain is cast in the role oi leader for this more lenient poinl of view toward Communism Next to Indias Nehru Clement Attlee is probablythe most savage critic of our policy although its just a mat ter of degree because appeasement what seems to us to be7 ap a part of the British foreign policy under Churchill Attlee fiom his sheltered position out of power can lash out at the United States without weighing the consequences while Churchill has to maintain a bit of restraint But theres no evidence that the Attlee candor is displeasing to Sir Win ston who still clings to the notion that a personal meeting with Mal enkov would prove fruitful No War Claim Dunng the Korean police action the British were under heavy cen sure from a considerable segment of world opinion by reason of their continuation of commerce with the enemy Britains denial that the trade was not in the field oE stra tegic Marmakmg goods carried the implication that trading with an enemy per se is all right Americans by and large dont take any such broadminded view of this matter They hold the quaint notion that an enemy should be treated as an enemy in ALL things The idea that a nation can help itself more than it does an enemy by doing business that enemy is repulsive to an American in stinct Within the month Ive sat across my desk several times from a member of the British parliament He was a member of the Attlee cabinet and on domestic questions quite generally holds with the La bor government of which he was a part But as Ive already sug gested on foreign pobcy he is a Thats the British way of doing things A Missed Opportunity One of his beliefs is that the caxise of world understanding might have been and probably would have advanced by a personal meeting participated in by Stalin Churchill and Eisen hower Time has eliminated Stalin and the sands are running out on Churchill An early gettogether by Eisenhower Churchill and Malen kov is favored by my British M P friend now My suggestion that there is a touchof Munich in the quick Brit ish recognition of Communist China half dozen years ago and Bri tains current of admit ting Red Chhia toUNleaves my friend unimpressed Theres just no analogy involved he insists Recognizing Red China he argues was like recognizing any other fact of life could doubt that the Communists were in charge of the governmentat Pei ping What point couldthere be in accepting the fiction that Chiang Kaishek orifhis island retreatwas heading the

ixperts believe a situation ap iroaching a diplomaUcstaleinate icrhaps influenced by the shifting military power balance but more ikely by other factors is already at hand State Department officials gen aJly believe the Soviets are ae ivcly avoiding any real negolia lons concerning Germany now and vili do so for many months to ome They question whether the teds want to talk seriously about he Far East although their posi ion is relatively stronger there The combination of an atomic talemate if it becomes an ac epted fact in great power poll ies and a diplomatic standoff might very well freeze
