Dewolf Washington Senator Wiley (R.-Wis.) today called for an all- out effort to keep the Chinese Com- munists out of the South Korean fighting. Saying that the Russians had "baited a trap" in Asia, the rank- ing active Republican member of the Senate foreign relations com- mittee declared in a statement: "The greatest challenge that we now face is to use very ounce of diplomatic strategy that we have in preventing the Chinese Red Ar- mies from becoming involved with us in a titanic struggle. "Such a struggle would bleed us completely dry bleed us of our manpower, bleed us of our arms, bleed us of our economic strength." The United States, he said, must use its friends in the Philippines, India, China and elsewhere to pre- vent the Communists "from at- tempting to stir up a race war against the United States." Wiley said he had asked the ad- ministration for a complete report on its plans to avoid tangling with the Chinese Reds in Korea and Southeast Asia. Wherry Blames Acheson Wiley made no mention of Pres- ident Truman's order to the Sev- enth fleet to defend the island of Formosa, where the Chinese Na- tionalist government is entrenched, against Communist invasion. Neither did he take note of peated Republican demands that the United States send mililaiy supplies to the Nationalists. Senate Republican Leader Wher- ry of Nebraska told the Senate yes- terday that the responsibility for the shedding of American blood in Korea rests with Secretary of State Acheson. He said it had been Acheson's policy to equip only a South Ko- rean police force instead of sup- plying the larger-scale military aid approved by Congress. Wiley hit a similar note in blam- ing the administration for lack of military preparedness and home- front economic and defense plan- ning. "In he said, "all we have is the bluff and bluster of the in- competent, unprepared Democrat- ic administration." The Wisconsin lawmaker defend- ed a statement issued by himself and three other Republican foreign relations cornmitteemen criticizing administration policies in the far east. The statement, issued last week- end and denounced by Democrats as "political ently has ended all bipartisanship in the 13-znember committee which has a major hand in implement- ing foreign policy. "We will not allow the cloak of national unity to be ju-dgtag. exhibits at the 41st annual exposition, around horrible blunders, Wiley Judges started viewing the hundreds of entries Losses in Korea Laid to Prewar Unpreparedness Detroit Commander Clyde E.

Charges Ignorance or Bad Faith "I indict Lewis said, on a charge of ignorance in not either abysmal recognising the ominous threat of Communist a.g- gression in Asia or of bad faith with United States citizens in not informing them of the great jers we faced." Lewis spoke at the presentation of a citizenship award to Mrs. With Republicans joining Demo- depart- crats in support of the emergency measure, the committee may send it to the Senate with its unanimous blessing. Before acting finally on the bill, specific exemption, relieving G.I.'s fighting the Korean war from pay- ing income taxes, and reducing the tax burden of their officers. It already has approved this idea in principle. The measure increases individual income taxes by about a year, and adds a year to the payments corporations nake to the government. It will bring tax collections from Individ-' uals near to their wartime peak. Fred T.

He said he obtained the figures from the Defense department to reply to the charge that the Unit- ed States has shipped only worth of wire to South Korea.
