The Invitation to Russia
' , What Joseph C. Harsch, Washington cor-
respondent for the Christian Science Monitor,
calli the "first really hew policy" which Sec
I retary Dullei hat initiated bean fruit again
; in tha invitation to the Soviet Union to ait
In' the International conference to discusa
the Suet canal problem. Dullea initiated it
; last sprlnf at the time of the Middle East
;' crisis. Then London was urging a three-power
' demand by Britain. France, the United States
en Israel and Egypt Dulles had Ambassador
Lodge at United Nations offer a resolution
invoking the agency of the secretary general
I to attempt to effect some peace in the Middle
; East. Thia served to bring in the Soviet Union
' which went along with the resolution and
It the same time backed off from giving
; support to the Arab states. When Britain and
; France seemed inclined to take immediate
military action at the Sues, Dulles urged an
international conference with the Soviet
Union invited. This wai agreed to, and Russia
! hat accepted, with certain observations of
J Jtt own.
! The significance, says Harsch, is that this
! reverses an old policy of western Europe to
S block out Russia from the Middle East where
I the West's influence was paramount. It is
even, he says,' "a truly radical departure"
I from U.S. policy since the promulgation of
J the Truman doctrine In 1947, which was one
' pf containment of., the- Communist- power. -f
Whether it will be letting the bear get his
nose in the tent or whether it may lead to ,
fuller cooperation for peace between the
I West and Russia remains to be seen. What is
! true it that the Soviet Union la a power in
; world affairs today. Its assistance should be
; welcome if the bear doesn't proceed to
, shoulder out all the other powers. The com
; ing conference will provide another test of
; Russia't intention! respecting world security.

The Justice Department's action Monday
In withdrawing opposition to restoration of
citizenship to the Nisei writes finis to a rather
black chapter in America's handling of its
non-whites during World War II.
More than 100,000 Japanese-Americans
were uprooted early in 1942 and placed in
what were veritably concentration camps.
There were doctors and lawyers and news
papermen and f6lk from practically every
walk of life, both American citizens and non
citizens. It it hardly a wonder that nearly
3000 of the Nisei (native-born Americans)
were so stunned by such discriminatory treat
ment that they renounced their citizenship.
Under the Justice Department"! new at
titude, 157 pending auits wherein restoration
ia demanded can be dropped, and automatic
restoration of citizenship is in ttore for
nearly 1000 others whose loyalty has been
proven and who seek to become American
citizens again.
It is not aurprising. even in lh cold light
of reappraisal, that a nation should be so
angered and perturbed by the treacherous
attack on Pearl Harbor that it went so far
as to penalize all the nationals of the attack
ing race. But it remains surprising and sad-,
dening that native-born citizens of our own
land should be so treated without investiga
tion, trial or any indication of wrong-doing.
Retaliation in the form of citizenship re
. nouncement did them no good, but two
wrongs don't make a right, and we commend
the Justice Department for taking the same
Fine Record-Thus Far
' When Oregon can come up to August 1
with less than 800 acres of its forest land
burned over. that, indeed, is cause for con
gratulation! all around. Such was the report
Monday at the annual board meeting of Keep
Oregon Green.
Actually, compared to former years, 19M
could well aet a record. There had been 265
man-caused fires and 943 lightning-caused
fires in state and national forestr of Oregon
up to the first of this month. The man-caused
trouble still Is far too heavy, but the fact that
tuch fires, as well at those from natural
causes, were doused with so small an over
all damage tpeaks well for quick reporting
and efficient fire-fighting.

many youngsters growing up with a thorough
knowledge of the dangers inherent as well
as their own responsibilities in the matter
cannot but reflect great benefit now and in
the years to come.
But the aeason Isn't over. Come the east
winds and we'll need every bit of aid we can
get to keep the loss down. And we'll need a

Henry Semon who served, for 12 terms in
the House, after election on the Democratic
ticket, has filed for reelection as an lnde-'
pendent. He explains that the county Demo

Regardless of party Semon has been an in
fluential legislator, and we anticipate his re
election by Klamath voters.
The 1956 wheat crop is pushing the billion
bushel mark. Latest estimate is for 938,088..
000 bushels, up 18.726.000 from the July
figure. Corn estimates though dropped from
3.266,000,000 to 3,143,779,000 bushels. The
figures assure an abundance of foodstuffs for
man and beast too much for the normal
market, and more stuff for the CCC to handle.

- Pres. Truman
Tramaa laid his personal entour
age that he laleaded ta maintain
a pahlle aealrallty.
That was his apparent inten
tion, in fact.' almost until the
opening of his famous press con
ference, at which he first prom
ised to reveal his choice. It is a
fair bet that the last strsw of
persuasion was laid on the some
times yielding camel's back of
Truman's prudence by Judge
Samuel Rosenman, an ardent
Harrimanite, with whom Truman
conferred Just before the press
conference began.
After that, the problem was not
what Truman would do, but how
he would do it, Streams of Harri
man supporters urged a pow rful
statement. Streams of Stevenson
admirers sought to avoid the
worst, which would have been a
statement hinting that Stevenson
was not a "fighting candidate."

At least half the members of
the Truman circle were not de

"ahead. .They thought Stevenson
wquld get the nomination any
way or at any rate believed that '
Harriman could not be nomi

when Harry Truman makes a
gamble, it Is always wiser to de

Says Ctaaed Shop Has N Valae
To the Editor; .
The Kansas election based on
the right to work law shows
labor's strength at the polls;
labor lost the industrial sections
to S and by very heavy ma
jorities in the rest of the states1
The closed shop is of no value
to labor and should be discarded;
the issue is as harmful as the
NAACP effort to start another
civil war.
A wage increase affecta only
those involved but the following
price increase affects all of us.
Inflation or the continued wage
increases have destroyed our
textile industry because of the
great difference between wages
paid here and elsewhere and no
diplomacy or tariff could prevent
or correct H. Wage disputes
. should be settled, with an eye to
the effect on our general economy
and welfare.
Not so many years ago a union
strike was known in legal circles
as a criminal conspiracy because
the workers do not own the fac
tory and it is only' by indulgent
tolerance that labor is to blame:
it should also be tolerant and
should temper its selfish interest
with consideration of the general
welfare. Labor is a big factor in
the Morse-McKay contest; Sen
ator. Morse's first public appear
ance was as a member of an
arbitration board that granted all
of Harry Bridges demands and
Morse was immediately acclaim
ed as labor's champion which he
still is for he calls a work slop-
page at any time to attend a
union meeting.

Across the country however it
