GOP May Well Take Its Cue .From Dems 7 Aggressiveness President Truman will embark soon IA" on a stumping tour of the country. It '7 will be the real opening of the Demo.' crats' 1950 campaign and will be top'•• ped off by an ambitious political festival in Chicago May 15. The party strategy is shaping up. • ;\ Mr. Truman will cover certain key spots i'j 'in.-an effort to bolster the candidacy of senators and congressmen who have ;*"' tough races on their hands. And he will * try to win new friends for his social X' welfare program. The plans call, too, for a repeat tour «. next fall touching some 15 states and '-'> resembling the President's vigorous vote ~S. appeals of the 1948 campaign. .'* It's apparent from this that the 'T: Democrats are going to be aggressive. '', They're anxious not merely to retain con£ trol of Congress but to strengthen their grip so more of Mr. Truman's program can be enacted in the coming two years. Since 1938 the Republicans have al• ways made strong gains in Congress in the so-called by-elections held between presidential campaigns. But it's risky to take comfort in trends. AS recently as - 1934 the Democrats actually widened their majorities in both houses. And this year, the Democrats, re. membering .that they were dislodged from congressional control in 1946, are out to confound the trend of the last '- dozen years. ' Thus the GOP has its work cut out for it. There's a conviction among some observers in the capital that failure to make good gains this time would make doubly difficult the Republicans' task of winning the White House in 1902. A Democratic triumph in 1952 would assure the incumbents 24 successive years in control of the government. That'd be a long time between drinks for the GOP. No one concerned with the well-being of our democracy could want to see indefinite dominance of the government by a single party. It isn't enough that the right to choose between two or more parties simply exists. For the health of the system, the right needs to be exercised to the end that changes in administration actually occur. The Republicans, on the outside for 18 years, must take their cue from the Democrats' aggressive plans for 1950. If they are to head back toward control both in Congress and the White House, - they must more than match their op. ponents" energy and must develop a . program that is both sound and appcal- ~ ing to the voters. Naturally it's easy to give broad gen- 1 eral advice like this. The doing is tremendously difficult and no one can really help the Republicans much. It's their '' fight and it's a hard one. And it's prob- ably not too extreme to say that their party's very life is at stake. Subversion Is Not A Civil Right There should be liltlc quarrel with the U. S. Court of Appenls' decision declaring the government's loyalty program constitutional. A lot of confused thinking has become entangled with the arguments over this program. Much of it comes from well-meaning individuals who arc sincerely concerned, about guarding civil liberties. But the basic fact to remember is that an American's civil rights do not include any absolute right to work for the government regardless of his personal political, views. Free speech, the right of dissent and all that have nothing to do with the issue. These are privileges that do not extend in their fullest sense to individuals who choose to work for tho government. A government has the right to command the fundamental loyalty of its employes. How could it function were it to be manned by persons bent on subverting it? Views of Others Nice Showing for Arkansas Arkansas, In 1049, ranked seventh in cash income from livestock among tho 15 Southern stales. Our fanners got something over 155 million dollars from this source, putting them out In front of Alnbnma. Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida, North and South Carolina and West Virginia. That's a mighty nice rating. It would be a happier one, of course. If we stood higher; but our livestock Industry Is pretty much a recent development. It was largely a "depression baby," taken up by many of our fanners In that harsh time of the 1330s. In the states which lead Arkansas, livestock has been an important part of their farming for a long time. These states are Texas (really three or four states in one), Oklahoma, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia and Maryland. And the last two me ahead of Arkansas by only a few million dollars each. Now, a lot of our farmers have the "know how"'with livestock. They have much idle land. R chunk of it taken from restricted cotton niul rice crops, to find use for. And good blood for Improving livestock herds Is available In the many fine breeding herds now established In the state. So Arkansas might well expand Its livestock farming, and step up a notch or two In tho state's rank. The Income from this source could be doubled, possibly tripled, over a period of years, If all the resources were fully used. Our towns and cities would benefit greatly Irom such an advance. Farmers would have more money to spend in them, and they would get a. lot more of the processing plants which prepare livestock rind, its products^fpr-the consumer. The present sprinkling of these; plants adds millions of dollars annually to the farm value of the livestock output. Here Is one of our real opportunities. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT Utter Nonsense Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt thinks It Is utter nonsense to Investigate the Department of state in search of Communists. She herself scheduled a radio show on which Paul Robcson was to have appeared. Announcement of the Rooscvelt-Robeson broadcast, however, caused so much protest that Robeson's part of it was cancelled. "The idea back of it," Mrs. Roosevelt explains, "was that any party with a large group of voters, such as Mr. Robeson's progressive party, should have a say." As for Communism, the New Deal Dowager inquires: "Have we reached the point In this country where we must be afraid to join an organization for fear some of its members may have been or might be now Communists?" The answer to that Is that anybody who values his name ought to be careful whom he lends it to. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS So They Say Hitting the Trail Unity for All Ireland May Be Foreseeable Th« DOCTOR SAVS Lemons have for some strange eason always been associated with either healing properties or harm- 'ul effects.

Peter Edson's Washington Column — Southeast Asia Now Considered More Extoosive Than Balkans WASHINGTON —(NEA)— When the American, British and French foreign ministers hold their scheduled conference later thLs spring. they may have another big worry on the , table before , then], in lul- dition to what to do about Russia nnd Germany. It will bo joint, consideration ot the problems of Asin. This vast area fro in Korea to Afghanistan is now considered more explosive than the Balkans ever were. Actual war between India and Pakistan is still n possibility, and both governments are. overburdened by military budgets. The nntl-Com- munist campaigns in Korea and Viet Nnm .(Indo- Peter Edson China) are already hot war. Burma has had continual revolts. Thailand (Siam), though comparatively rich and successfully independent, is pinched between Burma and Viet Nam. If cither of these countries goes Communist, Thailand would have to follow the lead, yielding as she yielded to the Japanese in the last war. On the edges of these critics areas are somewhat more promising conditions in japan, the Philippines and Jindonesia. But the trouble spots on the mainland hold off trade and recovery in the island countries around them. Fortunately, there is only one country that has a bail food situation—India. It there were general food shortages, the unrest would be all the greater. Wt-akncss Makes Dictatorship Attractive Politically, all these countries save Japan and Thailand are emerging from, the protection of western powers—Britain, Prance, The Netherlands and the United States. The new governments are weak and short on leadership. That makes them Jean towards dictatorial methods. It will be a long time before they may be regarded ns democracies in the western sense. In their new* nationalism and independence there is a great distrust of their former colonial masters. This carries over into a distrust of the United States everywhere save southern Korea, Japan, the Philippines and Indonesia. This one factor, it is being discovered, is what program makes aimed at difficult any helping these countries, or winning them away from the threat of Hussion Communist domination. The collapse of Nationalist China to communls .1 has placed this menace right on the northern 'rim of southeast Asia. Actual invasion by Chinese Communist armies does not seem to be regarded as an Im- "metiiate danger, save possibly In Tibet and Nepal. But the smuggling of arms to Communist elements has all governments worried. One of the most troublesome elements in the whole area is in the Chinese population. There are, for I ust ance, some th re e mil Ho n C hi- nese in Indonesia, and two million in Thailand. .These overseas Chinese provide population centers on which the Communists arc using the old Nazi trick of threatening reprisals on relatives at home il the overseas Chfi.cse do nob cooperate with the Communists. Chinese Immigrants Are Not Likec This Chinese Communist supporl could conceivably strengthen anti- Communist sentiment in southeast Asin. There has long bce'n a strong dislike of the Chinese immigrants In all these countries. The Peking Communist radio has now increasec by thre a ts to I nv a de Tibet a n c! Viet Nam—which nre claimed as former Chinese territory. Communist propaganda has also promised to "liberate" Burma and Thailand. All this has reacted gainst the Communists and the See KDSON on Page 5 Q—I have three boys, ages 17. 16 and 13. The older one hate.s the youn;*D"t and takes every chance to make fun of him. W.O.

House of ^epreseiitatiyes, denying Britain urther aid funds so 10115 as Ire- and remains partitioned, was a cntatlvc affair subject to expected evoke, but It was echoed like & hout in a rocky cavern. Dublin, Belfast, London and oth- r capitals reacted, each accordl;u^ o Us lights. ^P- It's only ten day. 1 ; ago that I disused this question by partition n our column. At that Mme I told 'ou a story about a conversation I lad In Belfast with the late Lord Cralgavon, Prime Minister of Northern Ireland, regarding partition. This die-hard separatist political eader slammed a fist into the palm if his other hand and exclaimed: Union D Is vowed "Union with Southern Ireland? •lever! Never! Never! And when !'m gone there are others who will take up the leadership after me.* A sequel to that interview has >een given me by Mr, Joseph D. Brennnn, counsellor of the Irish legation in Washington. He says: "fn 1938 I was at the British Empire Exhibition in Glasgow. At the reception given at the opening of the exhibition', Lord Cralgavon was present. My then chief, Mr. John /- Dulanty, who was our high commissioner In London, was also present. "We had Just concluded the 1938 agreement with Great Britain which restored to us the bases which the British held In Ireland. Lord Craigavpn congratulated Mr. Dulanty on the occasion of the agreement and I remember him .saying; "You T>irt Fine" " 'You did fine, Mr. Dulanty, but you didn't get the north—you .||5t never get the north.' 09 "At that point Lady Craigavon, who also was present, broke in to say: "'Speak for yourself James. Never Ls a long day.' . "Apparently Lady Craigavon had a better appreciation of what was likely to occur in the future than her husband had at that particular time." Lady Craigavon was right. I believe we have a right to r-xpsct that sooner or later Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic will be united. The great question Is "When?" Optimism Kxpressed On this point of time, optimism was expressed by John J, Hearne, :hc Irish Republic's first envoy to America with the rank of ambassador. Mr. Hearne stopped in New York on his way to Washington Irom Canada, where he had been tils country's high commissioner, and told a press conference that- he believes Ireland win win unity within the period he is ambassador here.
