"THE PAPER THAI' HAS NO ENEMIES HAS NO FRIENDS."
Once upon » time the United States of America meant a haven for the
oppress«! and freedom loving peoples of the entire world. This state of
affairs continued up until about the time that the 1 nited States started
putting on immigration restrictions. Turning down by the I nited States of
the league of Nations confirmed the fact that the I SA no longer held so
high the torch of freedom.
President Truman pressed for legislation that would have gone a long
way in combating the ill feeling that millions now have for the USA. This
is not to say that President Truman planned "to buy” the friendship of
the downtrodden of the world. Rather our President envisioned opening up
the avenues of self-advancement of the millions of yearning persons of this
Time was when men boldly struck out on new lines of thought—like the
famous phrase, “Go West young man!” Just propose an original idea like
that today and you’re the subject of a congressional investigation! Our
thinking and that of our legislators is so stilted and guided by fear we
should be ashamed of ourselves.
How fouled up this picture of freedom and liberty has become is the
present international picture. Russia is playing the role of freedom champion
whether we like it or not. The oppressed teeming millions are looking to
Russia for backing in their powerful urge for independence. Those same
millions once upon a time looked to us in such matters. Granted we do not
think Russia means well at all by these millions, but this thought doesn’t
halt Russia's gains.
One fact so strikingly clear is this: it is necessary that the necessities
of life go along with ideas. Always we need those who set sail for the
appa-ently impossible. The USA once was thought brimful of such in
dividual’. Today a feeling of disgust riles the stomachs of millions because
of our actions. Too often these millions have a better picture of us than
we ourselves do and the same goes for the British. The British and the
USA let dollar merchants be their ambassadors. Dollar merchants aren't
interested in ideas and ambitions unless they presently stand as road blocks
to their so-called "Free enterprise". Those who yell loudest for free enter
prise are the very ones who are putting another nail in its coffin.
The British are very disturbed at being pryed loose from their far flung
empire. This frustration cannot but have a strong effect on the current
British election—in Churchill’s favor. In turn the British election will jut
into our own elections in 1952. England and the USA do not take lightly
the loss of Iranian oil or the blocking of the mighty Suez Canal in Egypt.
If both of these go down the drain for Russia, Uncle Joe really will have
pulled the white rabbit out of the hat! And what has this to do with the
USA once being the haven for the oppressed and freedom loving peoples
of the world, you ask?
Just this—had the congressmen of the USA had the vision of a 10-year-old
child they would have followed the leadership of Woodrow Wilson, in inter
national affairs. President Truman has fought bravely and well for the
individual dignity of all the peoples of the* world. Truman has bolstered and
aided the United Nations as far as the USA congress will allow. Today
we are even doubting that our freedom and liberty are secure because of
McCarthyism. How absurd!
It is obvious that McCarthyism has no love for the United Nations. A
world movement is the only solution to the world's ills. This world govern
ment can be the United Nations. The United Nations must assume the
freedom role that Russia falsely plays on the rough hewn stages of Iran,
Egypt, China, Iraq, etc. The USA can prove that it again is entitled to the
Statute of Liberty by leading the world towards world government.
THE BEST IN ST UM ENT
United Nations Day was observed
this week -a period of time set aside
to remind all of us that the U. N. is
an organization requiring the moral,
spiritual and physical support of all
Americans, not just on one day of
the year, but on 365 days.
It is more than just a dream, It
is a going concern and while it has
not achieved all that has been hoped
for it, it has gone farther in the
direction of lasting peace than any
other agency in the history of the
Its continued existence is no guar-
entee that the nations of the earth
are going to live together in peace.
But it is certain that if that happy
state of international felicity is ever
to arrive it will arrive through the
United Nations. And it is equally
certain that there can be no hope for

America has everything to gain if
the U. N. thrives, everything to lose

TAFT AND McCARTHYISM
It is evident that Senator Taft is
trying the tight-rope balancing act
magazine warned Taft that his asso
ciation with McCarthy, or at least
his silence over McCarthyism, was
politically risky, and advised him to
get shed of Joe if he wanted the sup
port of a large segment of the republi
can party. At Des Moines a few days
ago Taft inched a little in that di
rection, telling newsmen in response
to a question that in some cases Mc
Carthy had “overstated his charges.”
When Joe up in Wisconsin heard
this quotation he refused to believe
it from his friend Bob Taft, and said
he would have to have it verified
from Taft himself. Wednesday at
Sioux Falls Taft edged over toward
Joe a bit when he said that McCarthy
had “performed a public service in
demanding an investigation of the
state department” though he hedged
again when he said he disagreed with
McCarthy in some respects and agreed
with him in others.
To our mind Taft made an under
statement about McCarthy’s over-
statement. To date Joe hasn’t proved
any of his charges against the state
department. His latest failure was in
his attack on Philip Jessup, even when
he had an assist from Harold Stassen.
As for performing a public service the
haven't yielded .one iota of good to
the country, only discord and dissen
tion and magnification of the Big Lie.
We have respected Taft as a man of
sincerity and integrity and intelli
gence. He can't have all three and

The Senate subcommittee vote on
Ambassador Philip C. Jessup does
little to clarify a confused situation.
In the first place, the vote did not
rest on any doubt of the character and
patriotism of Dr. Jessup, despite Sen
ator McCarthy’s initial impugning of
both. Republican Senator H. Alex
ander Smith, who voted against the
appointment of Dr. Jessup, declared
his “absolute confidence” in the lat-
ter's "integrity, ability, and loyalty.”
Democratic Senator Guy M. Gillette,
who also voted against him, declared
him to be "a man of great mental
ability, a man of honesty and integ
rity, a careful student of international
Why. then, did they vote against his
Senator Smith de
clared that it was because Dr. Jessup
" has b«>n identifi«i with” a Far
Eastern policy which has failed to
prevent China from falling into the
hands of the Reds. On this basis of
judgment it would be necessary to
repudiate a good many other diplo
mats, generals, and statesman of
proven caliber who, rightly or wrongly,
believed that nothing short of the
commitment of American troops in the
early postwar years or a complete
Nationalist house cleaning could have
saved Chiang Kaishek’s regime.
Senator Gillette, on the other hand,
maintained that there was only “the
most meager” evidence that Dr. Jessup

i ing China policy. Certainly some of
Mr. Stassen’s charges on this matter

nevertheless voted against Dr. Jessup
because of the present lack of public

[ though, he added, this might be due
in large part to “unfair and unprin-
I cipled attacks made on him.” Near
ness of the scheduled adjournment of
Congress weighed against taking time
fully to evaluate the criticism.
From the statements of Senators
Smith and Gillette, mutually contra
dictory as they are in certain respects,
it is clear that the proven usefulness
of Dr. Jessup as a negotiator in such
difficult situations as the Berlin block-

The idea that an experienced
drinker can take more liquor than
a beginner, or that he feels it less,
is thoughly exploded by Drs Wal
ton Smith and Ferdinand Helwig
in their book. ’ Liquor, the Servant
ot Man" (Little. Brown 05.193»’
These authors emphatically state
that once alcohol has reached the
brain, the effect is identical in both
novice and seasoned drinker." They
also say it is merely "personal opin
ion that the experienced drinker is
¡esc likely to make a fool of himself."
