' Sees No Call For Overcpnfidence By MARGARET CHASE SMITH U. 8.' Senator From Maine SKOWHEGAN, Me Oct. 26.--In the. flush of victory Juet as much,.as in the depths'of defeat, it'is always well to be realistic--even it that necessary realism, may sometimes be regarded as unjustified pessimism or optimism, as the case may be. Lack of confidence or any shred of optimism the day after the Pearl Harbor sneak attack., by- the J a P s or just a few weeks ago when the Korean HedB -were on the verge of pushing bur forces into the sea could have 'been fatal 'to our -side. In times like those optimism is nothing more than sheer courage, But the'thin thread of "sheer 'courage often has held long enough to turn almost certain defeat into victory. the same token, in those very crises usually the vanquished lost because they became overconfident in their hour of apparent victory. They forgot that realism that 1« prudent pessimism. You may prefer to call it caution. Mustn't Be Overconfident Whatever you call it, we must not be overconfident in the flush of our Korean victory. We must not be overconfident in the rout that we are presently enjoying against Russia in the United Nations and throughout the world, Runaway continued about prices here 'at home. and Inflation, if unchecked ,for.years, could bring about the -economic collapse of this country. In that event the x national security, would be greatly in danger. ' An even worse threat Is the state of preparedness that this country i« in now. It would be better to call It a state of shocking unpre-j puredness. The truth Is that despite our brilliant comeback victory in Korea, our armed forces actually have been operating on. a shoe- itrlng. In football, it would be culled operating on "a-punt, a pa*s and a prayer." , Think JRnssla Misssd Boat Some military experts are Jubilantly amazed that Rusia-did not choose to. make war over Korea. They feel that it was Russia's best chance to catch ug at our weakest *t*t« and at the time that she pos- ««ssed her greatest military super| lority over us. 'They say that Rus- ·i« simply missed the boat and will never have* as good a chance again --provided we stick to rebuilding our military strength .and aren't ·ucktci back into disarmament by a phony Communist peace offen- ·Ive. · " ·..,.."..- · Even more shocking is the lack of planning of national defense' In the ! face of constant Russian ag- grewlon and. threats. One of the Biggest disgraces is the lack of any rtal action oa. civil defense. Russia hai been known now to have had the atomic bomb for over a year. Three years ago the late Defense Secretary James.Forrestal outlined to the house armed services com Bilttee, of which I was a member a plan for civil defense. But I have not seen any real evidence of action on that plan. There hasn't ·ven been established a -uniform country-wide signalling system. Mayors Disgusted It it reported that the recent conference of several hundred mayors in ; Washington and Chicago with the national - security resources board on the matter of civil defense ended to disillusionment and disgust on the part of the mayors They wanted to find out exactly what the federal government · Intends to do. They got nothing specific. Instead they got vague generalities--not even elementary information. It is.rep'orted that the mayors concluded that the federal government doesn't have the slightest idea of what it is going to do. One mayor summed , up the reaction bitterly, ffius: "We feel that civil defense Is the stepchild of the government" If-the record of the NSRB is-rep- re'sentative or indicative" of the over-all planning and preparation 6f our national defense by federal officials, the'n ; we. are in dire'jecp pardy and are operating on "a aunt, -a pass-and a 'prayer." -We are itill warning civilians of .the potentiality and feasibility, of a, Russian air-atomic attack on '. pur ; Industrial centers and cities,- but .not giving them -any " real., plan - or program with which to ; . defend -themselves in the event of such 'an attack. , (Dist. by United Features) . , baby cry-out;in pain and stopped the car -to see what was wrong.,Mrs. "Orient said she feared, the baby had been stung by an Insect.
