Just ask any of your friend*. Don't Get Wrong Idea About Kremlin's Definition of War In America, speculation is constant on the issue whether we shal leventually have war with Russia. Rut in the Soviet Union there is no need for auch guesswork. Russian communism considers itself in a state of war with Western capitalism now. As a mailer of fact, in the Red view, that warfare has been goingr on a long time. But its more accurate phase may be said to have begun with the launching of the Cold War in 1947, when the Kremlin declined to take part in the Marshall Plan. Obviously, we are speaking here of two different definitions of war. America clings to the traditional meaning— the .open clash of armed forces. To the Russians, war is anything that weakens or harms or destroys the enemy. And the destruction need not be physical. Indeed, the Soviet leaders prefer it not to be. So ,u< the Kremlin's understanding, war is: sabotaging the United Nations through endless obstructive tactics: promoting permanent international political chaos by blocking peace treaties for Austria, Germany, and, if possible, Japan; using the device of the conference table to seek political ends that seem most easily attainable that way. Undermining shaky middle-of-the- road governments by subversion; en~ coin-aging poverty and social turmoil on which communism feeds; bombarding the world with phony talk of peace, atomic energy control .disarmament; depicting the enemy as an aggressor, as an oppressor of the people, a devil masquerading as a saint. In Moscow's terms, actual use of force is but one element in a war that can be fought on any one or more of the many fronts here suggested. But the important thing to remember is that in the Communist mind, all these fronts merge into one. The shooting might stop in Korea, but the struggle would go on undiminished. The combat would simply be switched to another arena. We may not like the Russian definition of war. But if we seriously propose to stand off communism successfully, we had better understand that meaning and accept it. Because that is the kind of war we're in. and our denying it won't change the fact. To cling to outmoded concepts of war as only armed struggle is to oversim- • plify our current dilemma and undercs- • timate the Soviet'enemy. He is ifelent- B less, probing always for weakness of • whatever kind. An the thoughtful Com• mittee for Economic Development re- I cently put it, "the provocation which • th* Soviet rulers will always recogniza 1» th« provocation ol opportunity." In a brilliant analysis of the foreign aid problem, the CED acknowledges the true' nature of Soviet warfare, and declares* that its flexibility 'requires the West to organize a "comprehensive and balanced security program which leaves no breach wide enough to invite a Soviet thrust." In other words, we must be prepared to meet the Russian challenge in every field every day for as long as the Kremlin has the power to try imposing its will upon the free world. Anything less than this will not win the war for free men. The mere absence of violence ie no evidence of peace in this age. Those who anxiously await a cease-fire in Korea as a signal to relax our vigilance may mark that fact well. A relaxed West is a West one step closer to conquest by Russia. Our guard is up; we must keep it there. Views of Others Our Bill of Rights The First Amendment to the Federal Constitution had Lo dr> with freedom of religion, speech, press and the right of petition. It reads: "Congress shall mnlce tin law respecting an • establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech; or of (he press; or the riRhl of people peaceably to assemble and to petition thr Government (or a redress of grievances." Most of our readers are familiar with this well known amendment which l.s a part of the [am- ons Bill of Rights. Then at first blush, so to speak, Friend Reader you may wonder why this well known declaration and basic principle of our Government should be repeated here. The answer Is simple. There Is continuous and determined effort on the part of some governmental functionaries to Ignore and break down tills provision. Among the threats that have to be guarded against at the present time Is the proposed freedom of press agreement among the United Nations. There Is an inclination apparently on the part of some of our United States Spokesmen to accept a compromise because many of the nations represented in the,United Nations do not believe in nor practice freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of the press, nor freedom of assembly as we do in these good United States of America. Don't be misled, Friend Render, to think there are not shrewd politicians in Washington who would be very glad to circumvent the Bill of Rights by some such agreement in the councils of' ths United Nations. You may rest assured that the alert pre^s of this country IB not going to bt found nsleop on this question. The immediate/question before the House,, ho\veyer, is the federal statute that old age assistance, and aid to dependent children and aid to the blind, must not be a matter for the public to know anything about. Incidentally North Carolina, M well us a number of other states, has a statute which purports :_'tQ-approve executive "sessions of welfare boards: and to make secret the poster of who are beneficlnriea of pub- lid charities. Among the exceptions is Indiana, whose Legislature recently adopted a law which disapproved of this violation of the Bill of Rights and declared lhat the lists, and actions of the welfare boards should be open to inspection, (t might be said In passing that It was not the purpose of the Indiana legislators to emblazon the names of dependents from the house tops or the public places and respectable press world, as it usually does, exercise proper discretion In th* mailer,. DIE Indiana legislators took into consideration the fuel that under the secret system abuses could arise and money paid out without the sanction of the public. Unquestionably there are some cases In Lrnoir County and other places in North Carolina where Although lega! title might be sustained, their moral right to live out o! the public treasury IR quite questionable. As a result of the Indiana statute federal a,-5UUnce hn.s bren cut off. The Security Administrator Oscar R. Ewtng, who administers this lurid. Is quoted as saying In part: "Having to make this decision, disapproving the Indiana state plans for old a?e assistance, aid to dependent children and aid to the blind" makes it necessary for him to take Indiana off the federal welfare list. "The Indians Legislature hn.s Riven me no choice and I am compelled by law to do so," says the administrator. The Free Press shares fully the opinion of its esteemed contemporary. The Greens born News, which winds up a very interesting editorial on this subject as follow: "There's nothing the public pays for which H Is not entitled to inspect. If this is not conceded by the federal Kovernmenl it is time for a new Bill of Rights." —KINSTON fN. C.» FREE PRESS SO THEY SAY Never More So Than Toddy once over lightly- By A A.
