Isolationism By Joseph and Stewart Alsop Washington The President's 1950 strategy is directly keyed to his expectations of Republican be- havior, and if these expectations are correct, his strategy looks pret- ty good. It must be added that the Republicans show every sign of anx- iety to co-operate with the Presi- dent in this respect, in the complet. est manner possible. A rather violent resurgence of isolationism among the Republican majority in Congress is the first thing to expect. Fear of this has, in fact, brought Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg of Michigan back pre- maturely to his Senate duties. A rest of several months is still indicated, to assure Vandenberg's complete recovery from his recent operation. With remarkable cour- age and self-denial, the Michigan senator has ignored his doctors' advice, in order, as he hasi admit- ted to intimates, to save his party from hanging the isolationist label on itself all over again. THE SENATOR'S RECENT statement, calling for economy in foreign spending, was not what most people have in- dication of change of heart. It was, rather, a shrewd movo to conciliate bis Republican colleagues and win their ears to his advice. There are several reasons, how- ever, why Vandenberg's sacrifice may well prove fruitless. The first is the impairment of bipartisanship in foreign policy for which the White House has been responsible since the election. This process still continues. It is known, for instance, that the State department would like to rename Senator John Foster Dulles to the United States delega- tion to the United Nations. But the White House is understood on good authority to be demanding that Dul- les first pledge himself to hold aloof Irom active Republican politics. This is, of course, a violation of bipartisanship's first principles. A FURTHER, and even more Im- portant reason for the resurgence of Republican Isolationism is the campaign for re-election of Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio. Until this session, while stoutly isolationist in his votes, the Ohio senator has been somewhat restrained from forays into the foreign policy field by the tacit understanding that this is the province of Senator Vandenberg. Now, however, Senator Taft is try- ing to make his own views of for- eign policy a central issues in the Ohio campaign, Taft has, to be sure, proclaimed what is called a "Monroe Doctrine for Europe." But he has simultane- ously denounced almost every kind ol effort to rebuild European strength or to protect Europe from aggression. His emphasis on for- eign policy in Ohio will surely re- flect itself in the Senate. An ailing Vnndenberg will have hard work beating off the assaults of an active Taft, Finally, this difficulty of Vanden- berg's will be Immeasurably in- Russ Free U. S.

This is the third, and In some ways the most important rea- son, for Vandenberg's alarm. THE REPUBLICANS and con- servative Democrats may well suc- ceed temporarily in blocking the established foreign policy. The trouble is that the disastrous effects of such isolationist victories in Con- gress will almost certainly be plain out.

Bomar United States today formally recognized the new government of Indonesia. H. Merle Cochran was named as the first ambassador to the new republic. The White House announced that Cochran has already presented his credentials. As U S representative of the United Nations commission for Indo- nesia, Cochran had a major hand in. bringing about the agreement that created the new republic in the East Indies.

Jacobson, American Jewish relief oll'icial ex- pelled from Hungary on spy charges, was released by Soviet troops today and returned to the American sector of Vienna. Jacobson has arrived at the Bris- tol hotel, which is used by tne American Army here. He had been jheld by the Russians at the Austro- I Hungarian border after his expul- jsion by Hungary. Jacobson was taken into custody by Soviet border guards last night shortly after he was freed from a Hungarian jail and expelled from the country yesterday. He had been held for 12 days. When he reached the border, a Soviet patrol told him his papers were not in order. U. S. officials in Vienna promptly asked the Russians to release Ja- cobson to American custody Lacked Travel Permits Informants in Hungary said Ja- cobson Jacked the necessary travel permit for going through the Rus- sian zone. A U. S. legation spokes- man here said efforts were being made to obtain the four-pover pass as quickly as possible. The 37-year-old Jacobson, direc- tor in Hungary for the American Joint Distribution Committee, had been held incommunicado in .1 Hungarian jail since December 15 on what Hungarian officials then called "suspicion of espionage circles against the Hungarian state." He was released without previous an- nouncement late yesterday and es- corted to the border. A communique from the Hungar- trans- ian minister of interior said Jacob- Ison had been expelled because "committed deeds violating the in- terests of the state and abusing the rights of foreigners here." Officials in Vienna first learned that Russian troops were hoidins Jacobson when Austrian border po- lice said he was being incom- municado there and his car was parked inside the Austrian border just 40 miles from Vienna.

Blakeslee, Preii Science Editor New York Discovery of fungi, tiny invisible plants, growing in cancers was an- nounced to the American As- sociation for the Advancement of Science today. The discovery is one of the most startling of this century. The cancer fungi are the same that grow all around us, in soil, food, plants and trees. They have 'been found in ev- ery cancer tested. The tests embraced 20 human cancers, including four different kinds, and 100 mice cancers. The fungi! never have been found in any healthy tissue, with one exception. They show in breasts of those species on fe- male mice which are suscep- tible to breast cancer. The discovery was report- ed by Dr. Irene Corey Diller of the Institute for Cancer Re- search, Philadelphia. She is one of the major research contribu- tors to the American Cancer so- ciety. Dr. Diller showed enlarged pictures of the fungi. One is a black fungus, common in soil and "i'ifc products, named al- tenaria. Another is grey, com- mon In the tropics, known as syncephalastrum racemosum. Dr. Diller said that how this tropical form got into Philadel- phia cancers is a mystery. There are also some com- mon yeast fungi not yet identi- fied. Dr. Dfller cautioned against accepting results so far as proof that fungi cause cancer. "A great deal more work must be she said. "A single research group could spend years exhausting the im- plications of these findings. To millions of Americans, cancer research Is a matter of tragic urgency." One queer fact has develop- ed. The tropical fungus, when taken from cancers and inject- ed into cancer susceptible strains of mice, kills the ani- mals in a few days. It doesn't cause cancer when so inject- ed, but poisons the mice. Aft- er the same fungus has been cultivated outside the bodies of. animals for some generations it gradually loses its power to cause death. In mouse leukemia, which is like the blood cancer of hu- mans, all the body organs ex- cept the heart contained a yeast-like fungus. the 1949 car given Jacque as part of her gifts for winning the Miss America title. Their destination was not disclosed. The marriage immediately touch- ed off a discussion whether Miss Mercer would be able to retain her title. At the time of the en- gagement, her mother, Mrs. Arth- ur Mercer, reported she had been informed by Miss America pageant officials it would make no differ- ence. However, at Atlantic City, Park W. Haverstick, president of the Miss America board of directors, said Miss Mercer's status would, have to be determined at a spe- cial 'directors meeting to bs call- ed in a few days. "We no longer have a Miss he said, claiming there was no precedent to follow in the case of marriage. "What action the board will take will depend on whether Miss Mercer will be able to fill her engagements between now and September." Jacque, however, said it was her intention to go on "being Miss America until my year is up." Other than that she would, make no comment.
