Two THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Thursday Evening, September 4,1952. Statement on Foreign Policy Needed Badly By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (Si — A brief and clear statement by President Truman 6Y Secretary of State Acheson on precisely what our foreign policy is would be helpful to everyone's understanding. Both men have stated that policy in different ways at different times. It would be an unusual man, not an average one, who could remember what they said on various parts of the policy over the past four years. Yet, it has been a many-sided, developing policy. Starting with aid to Greece and Turkey, moving on to the Marshall plan, it went into the Atlantic Pact, arms for Europe, defense of Korea, and huge rearmament But .now the policy has been made an issue in. the presidential campaign by General Eisenhower and his adviser, John Foster Dulles. It is rapidly getting fogged in semantics. Acheson indicated at a news conference Wednesday, he may soon make a statement on foreign policy, although an aide said later he does not think it proper for a secretary of state to get involved in a political campaign. In general the foreign policy can be said to be this: it's aimed at stopping Russia from going any further or gobbling up any more people. Eisenhower and Dulles, in general, agree with that. But Eisenhower, in his speech to the American Legion Aug. 25, indicated the policy doesn't go far enough to suit him, although he himself was pretty vague on what he'd do to make it work better. He said we should tell Russia we'll "never rest" until the people in the satellite nations are freed. Would we go to war to free them if Russia ignored us? He didn't say so. He, didn't say how we could free them. This statement caused concern in Europe and questioning here. Yet Acheson himself had said pretty much the same thing in a speech March 17, 1950, although not speaking as boldly as Eisenhower. Among steps he said Russia could take to give the rest of the world some reason to believe there might be peace, he suggested Russia xvithdraw its arms and its pressures from the satellite countries, leaving them independent. Two days after Eisenhower spoke, Dulles undertook to explain what the general meant He said Eisenhower didn't mean violent revolution in the satellite countries but peaceful revolution, using such "quiet" methods as passive resistance, non-cooperation, discontent, slowdowns, industrial sabotage. He said the Voice of America broadcasts could stir up discontent. As an example of the kind of help we could give the discontented peoples behind the Iron Curtain, he said people in the resistance movements could be supplied by airdrops. Governor Stevenson and Truman promptly denounced these Republican ideas. Sparing Eisenhower himself, the President aimed straight at Dulles and condemned what he called "gutter policies" by the Republicans. Briefed down, this is what Stevenson and Truman said: the Eisenhower-Dulles talks raise false hopes in this country among people with relatives behind the curtain and might lead to the slaughter CARN1V \L By Dick Turner Army Will Change Status of Reserves WASHINGTON (.E— The army said Wednesday it will soon release several thousand reserve officers who were ordered to active duty without their consent.

Why are so many people moving from the city to the country? Why is it that the people whn would like to build new homes hesitate to do so? Why, after adding 55,600,000 to our assessment rolls, is our tax rate on the increase? Why shoulc Leavenworth city have the highest taxing rate of any first class citj in the state of Kansas? Why do so many pepple drive over to Missouri to buy certain commodities? Why don't' our various budget committees realize that a h i g h rate of taxation is a road block to the progress of any city?
