The leaders of the Weslt-rn alliance are compelled to hope that Hie now shift ; of power in France will not meat nil that it seems to signify: a serious alow- down, in plans for renniiinjr Germnny and wtaving German s\i ; med : forces iii- I to-a six-notion European defense community. . Public utterances of the new French premier, Rene Mnycv, phis the dropping of Foreign minister Sclitiman from the I cabinet, inevitably stirred fears. Mayer ; talked of modifying the Knropean tle- | fense treaty, and of sub-ordinating it to other issues. Sehuman was its author, and the firmest friend on the continent of. European unity and economic-military links with Western Ctrmnny. His loss WHS a hard bfow. For another thing, though Mayer came to power with no de Gnullisl in his cabinet, he could not have niiicle the grade without, the support of some 80 de Caullist members of the Frtiich parliament. The worry: would lie not surely make some concessions to General de Gaulle's rabid nationalist point of view ? Certainly the concern is great in all the free capitals Western statesmen can only pray that their worst imaginings will not be realized. And possibly they will not be. •Whatever the inclinations of Maytr and his new foreign minister, Georges Bidault, the compulsions of the continuing Communist threat in Kurope may drive them forward on the path to a unified defense incorporating Gbrnian divisions. The inescapable fact is, if you believe the hardest-headed military specialists, that the West needs German forces to butteress its defenses. Without them, the armies of NATO will have very limited effectiveness in safeguarding Western soil. More than that, the West needs Western German territory to give it the kind of maneuvering spacb that ils contemplated defense in depth requires. If that land is not brought into the, de. fensiye area, then the NATO armies will be co'mptlled either to set up a rigid line at the Rhine River or to attempt the almost hopeless task of a fluid defense in France and the Low Countries themselves. The Allits found such a defense against Germany at the start of World War II an impossible thing to maintain ; German efforts to hold off the Allies after'the breakout from Normandy were hardly belter. Besides these powerful military fac- BI.YTHEVILT.E (ARK.) COtmrRR NRWS tors, Mayer and Bidault must face th« fact (hat the economic cooperation of European countries contemplated under the Sehuman coal-steel program may not be fully rt-aliziible unless efforts at unity extend into the military and ultimately into the political spiuw. So perhaps we ought to wait a while before gloomily concluding that the change in France's government virtually puts the skids under European defense and Germa.n rearmament, T h 6 realities of holding power may alter sharply any ideas the Messrs. Mayer and Bidault may have for pulling up short. Views of Others Plight of Colleges One til every three liberal art.? colleges — as dlstluRUlshrd Irom technical and other special Institutions ~ Is running in the red. This ratio Is higher among the small Independent schools, which are harder hit all the way. Kvcn schools partly supported by religious groups are having trouble. But red Ink Li far from the story. Schools are reducing their teaching stalls. Some have begun to lower srailcmlc standards to keep going at all. In other words, the financial pressures, fought off so long, at last are beginning to result In poorer education. How long can we countenance a degradation of educational standards? Proudly the experts tell us these days that we arc enjoying the highest standards of living we have ever known. It is Indeed comforting that our stomachs are so well cared for. But what about the mfnds of our young, the leaders of tomorrow? Our civilization will not In the end amount to much If we are content merely to live the lives of well-protected vegetable*. Our colleges are the fountain of learning. Here the unknown 1» explored, and the findings lire pawed ori to young people as a bi\sls for their exploration, which shtmld widen still further the horizons of human knowledge. With all our tax burdens, we hart better give inme hard thought to this before we, stand by and walch our educational standards slide further. We are playing with our country's, and perhaps the world's future. .—Portsmouth (Va.) Star.

Boundary Line .'^.'•^'•^••.^•^f^' Peter Edson's Washington Co/urn Presidents Message Delivered 'White Mans Burden to Ike WASHINGTON — (NEA>—Pres- denl Truman's last Stnte-of-the- Union message to Congress might well Imve been called a State of Ihe - Soviet - Union message. Right In the middle of the long text was a big chunk devoted to what tho Soviet Union Is trying to do to the world and where it stands today. Then'over retcr Ed»n toward the end ther^wns soine more about warning Premier Stalin, In cnse''he had any Irlens . about trying to start something. The atomic stuff of course got all the headlines. But right after Mr. Truman got through telling off the Russians, he stuck in a few paragraphs on bow the United States, during bis administration, had tried to meet the Soviet'chal- lenge. "Our whole program of action to carry out this purpose lins been directed to meet two require- menls," wrote Mr. Tinman. "The first of these had to do with security. Like Ihe pioneers . . . we Imve had Io carry a musket while we vent about our business ... ". .. Side by side with this Urgent military requirement, we had to continue to help creale conditions of economic and social progress In the world." There, in a couple of nutshells which have to be dug for by squirreling through the complicated message, Mr. Truman was restating the old Idea of the "white man's burden." It used to be attributed to the British Empire, in the days of Kipling. This burden was to help civilize the world, all the while maintaining peace and order. Since the end or World War II, (lie United Stales has been assuming n constantly bigger share of this burden. As Die power and prestige of Ihe British Empire have declined, beaten down by the war effort, the United Stales has assumed more leadership In helping to raise the world standard of living. At the some time it has tried to maintain peace and security against Soviet aggression. The United stales has done this by n liberal dishing out of dollars in postwar relief nnd reconstruction as well as by furnishing arms to friendly countries through military-assistance programs. The total cost of this effort during the Truman administration has been about $-10 billion. One-eighth has been arms aid, seven-eighths economic aid. It is in this one Hem that many people pick their main quarrel with the Truman administration. To the critics of International cooperation of any kind, this has been wasted money. Under such a philosophy, the United Slates has no responsibility to pick up the so-called white man's burden. If ihe Europeans or the Greeks or Koreans can't defend themselves, too bad. Let's pull out and forget It. (Somehow or other, though .when the Truman administration applied this policy to China, it didn't sit so well.) What business of ours Is It whether Latin American Indians learn how Io read, or the Ethiopians and Ubangi learn how Io plant hybrid corn, rotate their crops, pasteurize their milk and boil their water? Tn Cut Or Not To Cut Is Question This, in short, is the old doctrine of Isolationism. Early in the run of the Eisenhower administration, it will have to face up to this question of whether It will go isolationist or carry on_the programs of international cooperation that Truman followed. The new Truman-prepared budget for the next fiscal year \\ili unquestionably hove big items for international aid. Last year's: expenses in this field were over S5 billion. This year's expenses are estimated at over $6 billion. The new Republican Congress has what It considers a mandate to cut government expenses and balance the budget. There Is no easier place to saw off than on this foreign aid. The easy argument Is that it won't hurt the United States. There are Indications that there may be'some difference of opinion between President Elsenhow- er nnd his congressional lenders on whether, and to what extent, foreign aid should be cut. The question, of course. Is what affect such economizing would have on the Soviet Union's policy of aggression, which Mr. Truman wrote about nt such great length In his final message. Another aspect of the question Is whether carrying on this white man's burden Is cheaper than an enlarged war, which would be an opposite extreme in dealing with 1 the situation.
