The it. Pleasant news part Cloudy these Days i by George e. Sokolsky respect for is. I general Nathan f. Twining Agi j to Ion before the Senate prepared j peas subcommittee had a familiar ring. He annoyed with the committee for asking questions of military officers which the president had already answered precisely where else would a committee of Congress obtain the information if it did not it me from those officers in the Pentagon who know the ensures does tile Bureau of the budget have a veto Power Over the acts of Congress As established in Hie testimony of several witnesses if anyone believes that that is so. He ought to read the Law establishing the Bureau of the budget and he will discover that it has no option tut to obey an act of Congress particularly an appropriations Bill and j that if the Bureau of the Bude j diverts funds from purposes stip t plated in an appropriations Bill. Passed by Congress and signed by the president the head of that Bureau is violating the Law. One of our difficulties today is that government tends to grow an a Chic because there is an evasion of limitations placed upon various agencies by the Constitution. The Quot supreme court has become legislative the White House has become autocratic Congress has become accustomed to be rubber Sampish and to be fearful of criticism so that even democratic senators Kow Tow to a Republican president and the other Way around when the president is a Democrat. Meanwhile the world has ceased to respect us for the very simple reason that we do not deliver when it is dramatically important to keep rot Only our promises but the Hope of the world High. I was reminded of a memorandum written in August 1942 by or. Stanley k Hornbeck. Advisor on political relations of the state department in w Hin he said Quot. Until the end of 1941. The Peoples of the far East whether they liked tis and the British or not had great respect for us and Felt Confidence in us events in the far East a to say nothing of those in Europe a during the past eight months have greatly diminished their respect for and weakened their Confidence in us. A those were the words of an ignored Prophet who saw what was ahead in Asia in China Japan the Philippines. Okinawa Indonesia. We poured not Only billions of Dol Lars into that part of the world we i tined thousands of american youths there and that we cannot forget even if we can forego the dollars. It is not Only in Asia that we face the severe loss of face because of sputnik. The same is True in Europe where some countries Are afraid to accept our missiles and rockets and even dollars the same is True if the British or canadians want to go their own Way even v Hen to go their own Way is cutting off their noses to spite their faces. In a word we face the same difficulty that we did when we lost the korean War. Countries vol. 80, no. 20 1 it. Pleasant. Iowa Friday evening i in. 24, 1958 a.
