WINONA, MINNESOTA, MONDAY EVENING, MAY 15.1950 FIVE CENTS PER COPY Read 'Men Around Truman' on Page 4 Today TWENTY-TWO PAGES FireAcheson, Demand of McCarthy TODAY- Keyserling Has Ideas, And Energy By Stewart Alsop Truman's elevation of Leon Keyserling to the i chairmanship of the Council of Economic Advisers has hardly caus- ed a has been generally regarded as just another routine shift in this administration's endless game of musical chairs. But in fact it is a good deal more than that. In the first place, the council, like the Budget Bureau, the Nation- al Security council of the National Security Resources board, forms an important portion of the invisible government of the United 'States. This Invisible government is poten- tially, and often actually, more im- portant than the visible cabinet government. In the second place, together with former White House counsel Clark Clifford, Keyserling is one of the original architects of the Fair Deal. His appointment, after six months' delay, and over the opposition of the administration conservatives who follow th- tattered banner of Treasury Secretary John Snyder, is thus a major victory for the Fair Deal element in the administration. And even now the Fair Dealers are by no means a solid majority within the Fair Deal. THE SNTDER GROUP would have much preferred a conservative as chairman of the council, like Keyserling's predecessor, Dr. Edwin Nourse. This would have pretty well hamstrung Keyserling. But Key- serling is an aggressive and ener- getic man, and now that he is the economic grand panjandrum of tht Truman administration, he wil have very great influence on ad- ministration policy. It is therefore pertinent to Inquire just where Keyserling stands, One way to begin this inquiry is to examine his differences with Nourse, which had a great deal to do with Nourse's resignation. Nourse favored the ivory tower version of the council's role. According to Nourse, the council should in ef- fect whisper its economic views into the President's ear, while holding itself strictly aloof from the political hurly-burly. Keyserling, on the contrary strongly believes that the chairman should defend the administration's economic policies before Congress and the public, in the same way that the secretary of state, for ex- ample, defends the administration's foreign policy. This in itself sug- gests that Keyserling has no inten- tion of becoming this administra- tion's forgotten man. ANOTHER, AND MORE VITAL, difference between Keyserling and Nourse concerned defense policy. and Truman in Chicago for Talk After Quiet Day in Wisconsin START COLLECTING President Harry S.

But he is convinced that the United States has the economic strength to carry whatever defense expenditures its security requires. Thus Keyserllng's appointment is likely to hasten the administration's creeping backdown on Johnsonian "economy." Keyserling is also con- vinced that the council has an im- portant part to play in determining foreign economic policy, and here again he believes that the United States can afford "to do what it can not do." As for the domestic economy, Keyserling has usually been identi- fied with the old New Deal school of Keynesian pump-primers. In fact, his economic thinking differs in a number of respects from the de- pression-born theories of the old New Dealers. HE DOES NOT BELIEVE that a few billion pump-priming dollars would stave off a depression if the national income slumped severely. Instead, he believes that economic salvation lies not only in main- taining the present huge national Income, but in steadily Increasing it. Indeed. Keyserling's economic the- ory recalls the Red Queen in "Alice in "It takes all the running you can do to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast." He points out that the American worker's productivity increases, be- cause of labor-saving devices, by about three per cent a year, or 30 per cent in ten years. Thus to buy what the workers make, and main- tain full employment, the national income must be increased in at least the same ratio. If the national income remains constant even at its present high level, Keyserling estimates, there will be or unemployed in ten years. Thus Keyserling is in fact the real author of the peacock-in-every- pot vision of a na- tional income which Truman has been conjuring up. The vision is certainly a pleasant one. The trou- ble is that neither Truman, Key- serling nor any one else has 'any very exact idea of how it is 'to be realized. Yet at any rate, however one may differ with his views. Key- serling is a man who has energy and ideas, and to this administra- tion such a mnn is welcome. miles south of Evansville. The quick action of an uncle of two of the children saved two lives. Wayne Carr, the uncle, was up- stream about half a mile when he heard the screams. He said he saw the overturned boat "with children splashing all around it." He rushed to their aid and rescued Jerry Crawford, five, and his sis- ter, Sue Crawford, 12. Sue Carr, 12, niece of the rescuer, swam to shore. Carr said the other four had van- ished in the swiftly flowing water. The missing victims are James Hinderliter, 19; Marcellus Diegs, Jr., eight; his brother Donald, five, and Hilary Dale Carr, seven. Tractor Driver Killed in Mishap KinVball, Minn.

Pleased at Keception members on defense without stifling" A economic recovery. Some of the nations' military chiefs have recommended in sec- ret reports far more troops and equipment than their economic ex- perts say they can pay for. i The Big Three decision to keep West Germany an armed camp was announced last night. It stressed for the first time the de- fensive nature of the occupation troops, rather than their police du- ties. Another upshot of the three- day meeting between America's Secretary of State Acheson, Bri- tain's Ernest Bevin and France's Robert Schuman was their refusal to give the go-ahead on German peace treaty negotiations now. But they said occupation controls would be relaxed still further. The Big Three made clear, how- ever, that Western Germany will be fully integrated into Western Europe and gradually freed of con- trols to the maximum possible un- der the occupation regime.

Betrayal of U. S. in Far East Charged Senator Presses For Removal of Philip Jessup Atlantic City, N. J. Sen- ator McCarthy (R.-Wis.) today ac- cused Secretary of State Acheson of betraying the United States in Asia. He asked that President Tru- man fire Acheson. Contending American policies played into the hands of the BUnists in China, McCarthy said iiat Acheson had "bought" a plan for the Far East devised by Owen Lattimore which is "gigantic, in its fraud and complete in its de- ceit." He said that Philip Jessup. U.S. roving ambassador, was a "third member of the Lattimore- Acheson axis" and asked that Mr. Truman fire Jessup, too. 3 Men Criticized McCarthy hit out at Acheson, Jes- sup and Lattimore in an address at the diamond jubilee convention of the Sons of the American Revo- lution. Lattimore is a Johns Hopkins university professor and specialist on the Far East who has been an occasional consultant to the State department. M cC a r t h y has concentrated much of his fire on Lattimore in contending that the State depart- ment harbors Communists and Red sympathizers. Lattimore has denied he is ft Communist or a sympathizer. Achesor and other living secre- taries of state have declared also that Lattimore was not the author of American policies in the Far Ea'st. McCarthy said in his speech that the strategy of the Acheson-Latti- more axis in Asia is ttiat "of hit- ting Communists at the front door with a silk handerchief while they beat the brains out of your friends at the back door." He said it was "masterminded" by Lattimore and "Mr. Acheson has bought it and applied it to the entire Far East." I Plea to He wound up with this direct plea to Mr. Truman now en ft re- turn trip to Washington from speech making tour of the north- west: "Come home, Mr. Truman, and fire the pied pipers of the Pollt- uro.
