But there's serious doubt such an investigation conducted now would measure up to vital standards of fairness. Senator McMahon and Morse first broached the idea in the MacArthur hearings, suggesting that the so-called "China lobby" be looked into. They contended that funds originating in the U. S. are being used to influence American Far Eastern policy. Secretary of State Acheson agrees such a study could be valuable, but believef it should attempt to distinguish between "proper and improper" foreign lobbying activities. He told the Senate that President Truman has instructed ail appropriate executive agencies to cooperate fully should such a study be undertaken. « « « r >M THE SENATORS' DISCUSSION of the issue, it is apparent the inquiry, if voted, could not be confined to the "China lobby." It would extend to all governments, friendly or otherwise. On itf face this proposal seems eminently wise and fair. Other things being equal there is no reason to oppose the widest possible scrutiny of foreign lobbying operations. But, unluckily, other thing are not equal. Senators who approach our foreign relations in a calm spirit of justice and reasonableness are •wnewhat rare. Too many have pet likes and dislikes among foreign nations. In their eyes, the countries they disapprove can do no right. Those they like are forgiven any sins, including those they will not tolerate In some other nation. Consequently, putting the lobbying activities of all nations under the microscope at thi* time would mean more than useful disclosure of improper doings. • * » I T WOULD PROVIDE LAWMAKERS who have varied foreign phobias with an ideal excuse to unleach once more their wildest and most vitriolic charges. It would be another field day for emotionalism, of which we have already had too much in Congress these recent months. In the coure of a lobbying inquiry, America's international re- lafioni would inevitably suffer, as they have suffered too often in the past few years from irresponsible congressional outburst. lliere hat been enough talk for the moment. The need row is for action—action to arm the free world against the Communist danger, action to cement the free peoples in this resolve. At some later time, when the atmosphere of Congress is more temperate and the risk less from irresponsible behavior, it will be wise to study just how foreign nations may have improperly tried to influence American policy. Almost certainly, that goal would be quickly lost sight of if the investigation were undertaken now.

In that war this country tries to make people behind the Iron Curtain discontent with Communism, win them and people everywhere to our side, and put Russia at as much* disadvantage, psychologically, as possible. The Russians, in reverse, are trying to do the same to us. And they have made big strides, by force and propaganda, for where they can't use force they have to depend on propaganda. AT THE END OF WORLD WAR n about the only human beings living under Communism were the 20)0,000,000 living in Russia. Now there are 800,000,000 under, counting China and the satellite countries. The effect of Russia's psychological war could be seen in recent weeks in Europe, where, in the French elections, the Communists won 5,000,000 votes, and in the Italian elections, 6,000,000 votes, in spite of our propaganda and the help we've given both countries through the Marshall Plan. For years this country has t>een waging this psychological campaign for the minds of nien, boosting this country's stock or trying to undermine the Russians. Various agencies have a hand in it. • • • • IN JAPAN, FOR INSTANCE, the Army has the job of spreading American propaganda. The State Department and the Army team up on the job in Korea. 'The State Department does it in Germany and all over the world. The CIA — Central Intelligence Agency—takes part in it, since its job is getting information from biehind the I _ron C^irtain. So does EGA, the Economic Cooperation which runs the Marshall Plan. The job is done in various ways: by radio broadcasts day and night in 45 languages, by news bulletins distributed around the world, leaflets, and pamphlets, and so on. After the Korean War started these agencies decided to set up a conunittee, made up of representatives from each of them, to coordinate their efforts in this psychological-propaganda field and try to make them tie in together. • • * • THIS COMMITTEE has had various names: The Interdepart- 44 Let it stand 45 Bum 46 Icelandic saga 49 Period of tim< 51 Noise 42 Railroad (ab.l 53 Postscript(ab.J 43 Auricles 55 Six (Roman) » Always MOntuities atAndant Aslm atUaMsBched 9!^ Red Ryder and Circle 'C Boys Here June 27th One of the country's leading Western stars will make a personal appearance at the Mounon Drive-In Theatre June 27th. Jim Bannon, formerly a stuntman in Hollywood, is a dead-ringer for the Red Ryder and plays the part of Red in both the movies and on radio. mental Committee or The National Psychological Strategy Board. And until now it ran the show. But the agencies' representatives on this committee were not top men from tlie agencies. They were important but several rungs removed from the top. The new board established by Mr. Truman this week — Tlie Psychological Strategy Board — will be smaller than the comniittee's board and its members will be at the very top of tlieir agencies or next to it. So while the old committee board continues at its work, it will actually be under this new board which will be made up of these three men: • * * * LT. GEN. BEDELL SMITH, head of CIA; Robert A. Lovett, Undersecretary of Defense, whose only boss in the Defesse Department is Secretary Marshall; and James E. Webb, Undersecretary of State, whose only boss in the State Department is Secretary Acheson. (And as director for the new board Mr. Truman has appointed Gordon Gray, president of the University of North Carolina, who, apparently, will give only some of his time to the board's work.) Still, on any great decisions in the psychological war even this new board apparently will not have final say for Mr. Truman said it must report to the National Security Council which is the top group in this country. (The Council is made up of the President, Vice President Barkley, Secretary of Defense Marshall, Secretary of State Acheson, and the chairman of the National Security Resources Board, a job now open.) Today In WASHINGTON Shaggy Robber Gets $5,500 Cash in Tavern Holdup Sy Aai «ala «a4 Praaa ROCK ISLAND, 111., June 22.— A shaggy robber in work clothes today got $5,500 in cash and $4,000 in payroll checks in a tavern holdup. The stickup man entered the Viaduct tavern, across the street from International Harvester's Farmall works, waited for some 15 customers to leave, then confronted bartender John Delp, 35, with a .45 caliber pistol. The large sum of money was on hand, Delp said, for cashing paychecks of Farmall workers. Delp described the robber as about 25 years old, badly in need of a haircut for his sandy locks, and wearing blue jeans, a corduroy jacket and a peaked cap. he description tallies with of a man who held up another tavern in Rock Island May 4, and got ap- pro-ximately $1,000.
