never been a problem to square

example to those who break the
law been anything but a mild
deterrent, and Incarceration may

Anticipate the Worst
AMERICA’S foremost Russian experts are agreed that
Moscow made a major miscalculation when it spurred
North Korea to attack South Korea last year. They believe
the Kremlin did not foresee the bold Western response to
that invasion, nor did it anticipate the vast rearmament
program to follow.
From the fact that the Communists agreed to talk truce
with us in Korea, these experts now conclude that Russia
is anxious to offset this mistake. They argue that Soviet
leaders, at the very least, seek a breathing spell, an easing
of tensions that may lull the West back to sleep.
By the same reasoning, they conclude that Russia is
Unlikely in the near future to take any aggressive step which
might arouse the West anew, perhaps on a far bigger scale
Thus they believe there will be no early attack upon Ger-
many, Yugoslavia, or Iran, prime targets in the Russian |
strategy of conquest.
VET there are disturbing signs that actual Soviet thinking
may not be following this line. In Yugoslavia, especially,
the situation iB not promising. Marshal Tito recently de-
clared that for the first time satellite armies ringing his
country are superior in strength to his own stubborn force.
Since Russia itself is obviously responsible for the satel-
lite build-up, it cannot be unaware of the changing balance of
forces. A notable increase in Soviet-inspired incidents along
Tito’s boundaries is another straw in the wind. These affairs
are manufactured to provide excuse for attack. | story : My name u James

ANYONE trying to make sense
out of all these contradictions
Is confronted again by the old
Russian enigma wrapped In mystery.
A world grown weary and wiser
by repeated Russian double crosses
doubts that these developments
meun Russia wants peace.
They could mean that Russia Is
muddying up the record In prepara-
tion for some new aggression. Play-
ing it safe, they probably mean
that the cold war is to continue
If this Is the prospect, then the
course of the United States should
be clear. It is to continue the tough
policy. Thto Is no time to ease up
In response to some faint hope that
the Communists have peaceful in-
tentions. If the get-tough policy
has brought Russia to this point,
more of the same should move that
point farther along.
Here there enters the picture of
an American contradiction. On the
one side Is a group of eight Re-
publican senators issuing a report
on the firing of General Mac Arthur.
They call for no appeasement In
Korea. They want the war carried
clear to the Yalu. They talk tough.
But other congressmen and sen-
ators. Democrats and Republicans
alike, act soft. They propose to cut
down the Voice of America.
nUSSIA was forced to publish the
A* congressional resolution of
friendship for the Soviet people
because the Voice of America had
been beaming It constantly behind
the curtain. Economic aid for
countries outside the curtain to In-
tended to build up their own arms-
maklng capacity. Slowing down U.
S. defense would be suicidal.
This Is no time for cutting back
or easing off. This is no time for
falling to do any of the things that
will help keep America tough, with
any necessary sacrifices In taxes or
prices or wages or rents or profits
to give America a sound economy.
The United states doesn’t have to
retreat In any way to show Russia
and to show the world that It wants
peace. As far back as 1940, the
United States offered Russia a
broad conference to discuss credits,
a treaty of friendship, commerce
and navigation, an exchange of
aviation rights, expansion of trade,
settlement of Lend Lease, world
control of atomic energy and a
sharing of Its secrets.
In the approaching showdown,
Russia can have peace If she wants
it. As President Truman points out
in his letter to congress. If the
Soviet wants to make progress
towards peace, she should quit
flouting the authoirty of the united
nations, cease subversion and stop
violating fundamental human rights.
