New YoiK Truman's Foreign Policy Talk Brings Varied Comment in U.S. By United I'rrsn Editorial comment on President Truman's sjweeh to tlif joint session of Congress: NEW YORK TIMES—"The [jrogrnin submitted by Pi-cslclcnt Truman is not only logical and consistent, but also (lie minimum demanded by the circumstances . . . "We arc confident that the American |>enple will stand behind the President in that resolve.'' NEW YORK HERALD-TRIBUNK—"The President lias summoned t the nation to lay the indispensable foundations for a ix>l!cy which will meet the Russian problem. The policy iUell, and all that it may mean In economic political and military terms, remains to be developed. Hut about the foundations there cannot, it seems Io this newspaper, be any question in the mind of any patriotic American citizen. This mucli wr must do, and do at once." Livestock NEW YORK DAILY NEWS "Maybe we are In danger of the gravest kind right now. But whoever wrote this speech failed to get any sense of urgency into it. It just sounded like a long and soggy editorial or about the vintage of 1910 . . . Really, is this an American foreign-affairs crisis, or is it just a Truman political crisis?" NEW YORK DAILY MIRROR—"Mr. Truman heads an admnistration which pursued a policy of Red Fascist appeasement, and which even to this day permits shiploads of American machinery and American machine- tools to be exported for delivery behind the iron curtain . . . "Tlie inconsistencies of the New Deal policies—if they can be diRiiilicd b.v that name—come home to roost. The record speaks louder than (he fcpeech!" NEW YORK DAILY WORKER—The nation is In no danger of being attacked by Russia. "The peril of war comes from the profit hungry minority of Wall Street banker-generals who seized the foreign policy 01 the U. S. A. after Roosevelt died." ST. LOUIS NATIONAL STOCKYARDS. March 18.
