They fire Max Eastman, self-styled radical and former admirer and defender of 'the Soviet system, and John Foster Dulles, Republican, international lawyer, and expert on foreign affairs. 'Their conclusion is that Russia is em- 'barked upon a long-range policy of i world domination. Mr. Dulles, writing in Life maKnv 7-ine, bases his opinion on Russia's do- "mestic policy and her visible course of expansion in the last seven years. Mr. •Eastman, in a scries for the Rcripps- Howard newspapers, quotes from Prime Minister Stalin's book, "Problems of Leninism," from other Soviet writings, and from speeches by Mr. Stalin and other Russian leaders. The approach of each writer differs from thai of the other. Mr. Kastman stresses the copious record of Soviet commitment to world revolution. Mr. Dulles feels that today the Kremlin's emphasis is less on revolution than on "security.'' But both seem,to'agree, out of their niutufilly broad and intimate experience with Russian thought, that the Soviet •Union considers democratic capitalism a dangerous, implacable enemy that •must be overcome, and believes that the 'Soviet Onion will not be safe until the Soviet 4x>litica'l ideal is dominant and 'unchallenged throughout the world. The -logic -of both authors seems sound. Their evidence can lie read or 'beheld. "Perhaps, then, it is time that ;the American government and the American people stop generating So 'much oratorical heat and start facing 'facts and making concerted, intelligent •plans for averting ?i crisis. The government may at length have decided where its course lies. But the people have i:6t. And it is up to the tfriited States, as one of the world's strongest nations, to oppose Russia's world plans. Too many of tis waste loo much hatred on Russia. We give way to hot. exasperated, impotent rage al the inconsistencies of Hussin's Communist followers in this country. But fuming and .spluttering will gel us nowhere. Russian policy is whal it is, and we might as well accept it. Hatred and anger might belter be hardened into a determination lo face the facts, accept the challenge, and prevent tbo ultimate showdown. Since communism spreads through hunger, discontent, confusion and apathy, the American people need to get together and get going. We nntf; change our selfish thinking, put our house in order, compose industrial strife, and do something about thu more glaring inequities of our .social system. If we cannot feed thu hungry of other lands through humanitarianism, then we must do it through cold- blooded praclicality. Domestic and international problems no longer exist separately. Millionaires, anli-Coinimmist labor leaders, all who cherish American democracy must form a solid fro lit and maintain our moral, economic and military strength. We must prove to the world by example—as we are not doing today— thai our way of life is best. We must, be tolerant of other political systems, but we must be strong enough to in- on tolerance in return. For only when a world political policy of livc-and-let-livc is established will the United Nations really be able lo sliirt functioning effectively. Only then will the prospect of lasting peace realty be bright. FRIDAY, JUNE 21, 19<1G The Courage That Wins the Reconversion Battie Bargains Perhaps you don't like onions.

Now, 'I tm absolutely confident of getting my health back again." •Th« other voiced much the same 'sentiment. Margaret Adams met Sally when she left the ward at .eight that night and told her that she had certainly started something. "Sunderlin do«sn't seem to be [too Tpteased; but Willoughby and th* chief are jubilant K has al- "wtys been Sunderlin's pet ward. She started it— Interested the Bond in it and so on.
