Dewey Suggests Republicans Out-Liberalize Democrats The Alsops Tito Swing To Western Orbit Seen By Joseph Alsop Belgrade There are important rigns here that a new era win short- ly open in Marshal Tito's foreign policy. Having broken irrevocably with the Kremlin, he cannot perma- coffin nently remain in total isolation, suspended like Mahomet's between the So- viet and Western world. And since he cannot return to his old friends in the East with- out literally im- periling his neck. It is logical that Marshal Tito should begin to think about making new friends in the West. As long ago as last summer, lead- ing Yugoslavs informed American and British officials that their country would need help to main- tain its independence. But this was done almost conspiratorially, with many pleas London Marshal that Washington and Wants G.O.P. to Become Party of Social Progress By Jack Bell Washington Thomas E.

On the other, he said as he paus- ed to survey a packed banquet room, are those Republicans who want to go beyond the New Deal "as rapidly as possible at almost any cost and regardless of consequences."

The Danish ambassador, Henrik Kauffman, was reported primed to submit his country's questions as soon as Secretary Acheson gives him an appointment. De Kauffman's visit would mark the first time the Danish govern- ment has shown any official interest in the possibility of linking its de- fenses with the American-sponsored security pact. In the past, the Danish govern- ment has supported Sweden's Idea that the three Scandinavian coun- tries (Sweden, Norway and Den- mark) should form an alliance of their own based on neutrality.

In the interval, it has been American and British policy to give Marshal Tito the minimum essentials to keep his country going.

Oatis new big four par- ley on Austria beginning today gave Joseph Stalin a chance to match his words of peace with actions. Deputies of the foreign ministers of Russia, the United States, Brit- ain and Prance held a closed session for a third try at drafting a treaty of Austrian peace and independence. The prime question was whether Russia would continue to back Yu- goslavia's demand for In reparations and some 800 square miles of Austrian territory. Russia's insistence that Marshal Tito's government get its demands helped deadlock the last conference, which broke up May 6, 1948, after 110 sessions. But a month later Russia and the cominform broke with Tito. The Austrian treaty talks repre- sent the first big four meeting since Russia and her communist follow- ers in Europe began what has been termed a peace offensive. The so- called offensive was topped by Prime Minister Stalin's offer to meet with President Truman in Russia, Poland or Czechoslovakia.

Anti-Filibuster Rule Approved By Senator Lodge Washington Senator Lodge (R.-Mass.) said today the Senate rules committee approved an anti- filibuster rule by a ten to three vote. Leaving a closed-door session of the committee, Lodge said the vote was for an amendment to the Sen- ate rules so that two-thirds of sen- ators voting could apply to a gag to debate at any time. The committee action merely sends the proposal on to'the Senate It- self. In the Senate, the matter can be called up at any time but Is sub- ject to debate. Southern senators already have threatened to filibuster, or keep de- bate going indefinitely, in order to prevent the Senate from voting to adopt such a rule.
