Cousins Tells of Red Appeal
(Continued from pane one)
ianism in Asia was illustrated by
Cousins in an incident which oc
curred during his India trip. Cous
ins had occasion to introduce Ju
lius Stulman, an American indus
trialist who gave an address in
Madras as an “industrialist and
The Madras Liberator, a news
paper .referred to Stulman as an
“industrialist and a Communist' in
the story. In answer to questions
from Cousins, the paper said they
saw no difference between a hu
manitarian and a Communist.
India Government Red Target
“The present Indian government
is a prime target of Communism.”
Cousins said. Nehru is their foe, he
commented, since the Communists
have been outlawed in India, and
some of their leaders shot.
“We can't fight Communism un
less we know who our friends are,”
he said, “and we have no friend
better than India.” Nehru is India's
best but only bet. Cousins con
tinued. In order to keep Commu
nism from gaining control of In
dia, the government must be
strengthened, he said, but the
"only way to lick Communism in
ternally is with economic aid.”
In commenting an the education
of Americans and their knowledge
of the rest of the world, Cousins
felt it was “asking a lot of the
American people” to have them
know more. But he did feel empha
sis should be shifted “to make edu
cation man-and-world scented in
stead of Western civilization scent
‘Voice’ Good, Can Improve
In discussing the Voice of Amer
ica and the influence it had on the
people of foreign countries. Cous
ins said the “Voice of America is
doing a surprisingly good job, but
could do a better one if the U.S.
became the champion of the world
peoples.” The U.S. needs to give its
foreign policy a “heart throb,” he
Radio Free Asia has a great op
portunity to influence Asians, he
stated, as more listen to radios
than read newspapers.
On Literature, as an Editor
Moving from foreign policy to
literature, speaking as an editor of
a literary magazine, Cousins gave
a few comments on his “philosophy
of editing a magazine.”
“No man should edit a magazine
for more than 10 years,” he said,
“as 10 years is about the period for
developing a real forward thrust
and getting a formula settled.”
After that, an editor is apt to get
defensive, Cousins commented.
The fact that an editor has a for
mula rules out other things and
he is apt to get “pot-bellied and
pooped,” Cousins said. It is then
time to bring in someone with a
“hungry look” and “zip” to strip
the magazine down and build it up
to appeal to an increasing number
of readers, he related.
Cousins mentioned several young
writers who show "more than
promise on their way towards giv
ing us a good nucleus around
which to build on Steinbeck and
Hemingway.” Those writers men
tioned were Arthur Fields, James
Gould Cozzens, John Hersey, Her
man Wouk and Irwin Shaw.
During the progress of the in
terview, Cousins asked several
questions concerning local and re
gional sports. When asked about
his reported early interest in be
coming a baseball player, Cousins
said, “everyone has an interest In
baseball at some time or another."
He also made some queries about
the Portland baseball Beavers and
Oregon's basketball team.
