The it. Pleasant news Cloudy these Days by George e. Sokulsky v of. So., no. Iii Vit pleasant Iowa wednesday evening i Aiu la to 105s Quot. In Quot 1 a a a a a a a Quot a. La he i by c Arrier 30f per week by mall 17.sp per year overdoing it the russian propaganda machine manages by constant repetition to Force upon our minds certain symbols and concepts which we repeat and which after prolonged repetition come to be accepted As our own. One of the is concepts is As old As the a hands across the seas Symbol i was sitting next to a Wise Man recently and we were listening to a speaker say that we should All know each other better and that he is Happy that the United slates is extending its cultural interrelations. The Man next to me said til at the Only people he Ever quarrelled with were those whom he knew like his wife for instance he said that the people in All this world whom we know Best Are the British. To a lesser degree the same is True about tile germans the two largest components of the american population Are the British and the germans be they Are the Only nations against whom we have fought two wars 0 s 0 the people we hardly know Al All Are indians. Indonesians. Cey Lonese and other asiatics but we sputter All Over ourselves when we think of them. Somehow the j less we know them the More i wonderful they seem to us so for a instance we got All excited Over Art indonesian socialist by flame Sukarno who was Given a red carpet reception when he came to tile United states but who now goes in tor a doctrine called a guided democracy a according to the anti communist Sumatran this a guided democracy Quot is a cover for letting Tho communists join the government precisely what the difference is Between Sukarno a Quot guided democracy a and Nasser so presidential democracy a and Tito a benevolent paternalism. I cannot Tell you. Associates of inc hear or. Van Allent a to a t ii v Ole Rlou Sivin Mil most Happy Fellows scientific brains who Mastermind i the Vanguard into orbit after Many heartrending snafu., look real Happy at their press conference at Cape canaveral fla., after tile successful launching.

Most of tile in but during Oitim the Gulf a Sippi Valley was in t where no la suffice it that nobody can be too angry about something he knows nothing about although he May have prejudices on Hie subject based on general principles. Let us Sav that i listen to David Oistrakh play the Beethoven violin concerto also Isaac Stern plays it. Also Francescatti plays it. Also Elman and everybody else. The most i can say is that Oistrakh is a first class violinist who can play the Beethoven violin concerto with ability understanding and sympathy. But does that make me like Khrushchev does it cause me to prefer the russian system of government or the russian Way of life or look at the other Side of the Coin. A negro trumpet player wants to so to Russia to play the trumpet there in jazz style. Hts name is a sat chm Quot Armstrong. I do not know what Satcho Means although someone told me maybe to tool me. That it is a nickname for a big Mouth. I heard him once and marvelled at his enormous Chest expansion what he played bored file but my son says it is Good which explains the difference in generations. Now after the russians have listened to the aforesaid Satcho will they have a better understanding of the american Constitution the capitalist system the revolt against puritanism and other manifestations of american life when we speak about cultural exchanges and we decide not to leave such Exchange to the accidents of life and the free will of individuals but Force them by government propaganda and recruitment. What do we actually accomplish recently a Bright Young Man and his Wale upbraided me for not getting hot and bothered about the failure of our government to spend More Money to advertise our civil ration at the worlds fair to be held in Belgium. To Tell the truth i had barely paid any attention to this subject Bur while i was being upbraided it occurred to me to wonder who will be convinced by what at this world s fair if we Are to resolve our cold War with soviet Russia we have to convince Only one mar., namely Khrushchev. All right tor argue ment s Sake let of agree that we have to convince also Mikoyan Bulgarin and three or four others of their colleagues. What will con Vine these hard boiled second generation communists it is not Likely to be rookeries or the Philadelphia symphony. Too Well what would convince them that they ought to Cut Down the Cost of the cold War probably j nothing but evidence that even if j they get in the first smack we have enough to destroy quickly and with perfection the material Gams of their revolution a copyright.
