Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 6, 1952, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Doily Newspaper Edited for MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE T HE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES AIL NOHTMIOWANS N I I C H I 0 R S HOME EDITION Associated and United Full Wirci Seven Cenli a Copy One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor Communism Has Its Troubles Too KLL America seems these days tobe divided into two those who shake in their boots a the very mention of the word Rus sia and those who are impresse not at all by the Communist threat And I dont know which point o view is the more to be censuret We need to see and treat Russi as she is not as we wish she wer and not as we fear her to be On the one hand we must no blind our eyes to the obvious fac that the Kremlin is bent on wor domination Thats uppermost in the Communist book In this Stalin and his associates are but pickin up the imperialistic ambitions o the worst of Russias czars whi once sat exactly where Stalin sit today The evil force which opposes the ideal of freedom on our eartham keeps peaceloving peoples on a war economy today would be more accurately referred to as a Rus sian Imperialism than as a World Communism This is precisely wha drove Tito and Yugoslavia out o the Russian camp To recognize this is merely to face up to the indisputable facts o a world situation Its the Russiai threat which forces us to a pro gram of military preparedness more costly than any we have evei known By life same token we find it good business however expen sive to help other free nations keep themselves militarily and economi cally strong Strength Is Required Doing less than we are would be to invite peril to our national se curity I make this observation so that there will be no misunder standing about my further views to be expressed in this visit with you Its my considered opinion based on study from a distance as wel as on closerange observation thai If we of the free world will keep ourselves strong long enbugh weI be on hand to preside oyer the burial rites of that evil thing calfec Communism Communism is a phony Com munism is a counterfeit Com munism is neither a religion nor a substitute for religion Com munism has nothing to recommeno it as a political or economic sys tem More than that and this on the hopeful side Communism con tains within itself the seeds of its own destruction We have only to give those seeds sufficient time foi germination incubation and growth Whether five years or 25 years will be required I cant say I only know that Communisms death 3s foreordained and inevit able MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY OCTOBER 4 1W2 Paper ConilaU of Two OM He Likes to Swap Troubles In our preoccupation with our own trialsand tribulations all of us I think are disposed to assume that everything is peachcsand cream behind the Iron Curtain And howwrong we are in such an as sumption Its my guess that Joe Stalin would be tickled pink to swap troubles with us at this moment And well he should be because our problems are minor by comparison Moreover we have the means at hand to solve them Thatcant be said by the Commies Tyranny then more tyranny is the only force the Kremlin can bring to bearon the worst of its problems The one most important fact about Communism is that it was never accepted by any people who were given a free choice Nor would it be retained by any peo ple whose wishes could be made to prevail Communism can perpetuate it self only by keeping a pistol at the temple of its subject people Its genius if it can be so called lies in its ability to do this over an ex tended period of time Other tyran nies such as Hitlers and Musso linis were not even as longlived as 35 years Theyd Welcome Hit Death Toe Stalin knows that more than half of the people enslaved by Communism would be overjoyed by the news of his death He knows that millions of them would like to do the job themselves at least a few of them right in his immedi ate political family What happened to Trotzky what happened to millions of Russians who didnt hew to the party line could happen to anybody in Russia today Every Communist leader in Russia or thc
