Break in Tito-Stalin 'Unity' Shows Fallacy in Red Line The inflammatory exchanges between the Soviet Union and Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia may or may not lead .. to a conflict more serious than words. In any event, this display of what life • can,be like within the Communist family of nations is instructive to the rest of-'the world. The really interesting part is not that Russia called Tito a Fascist ami threatened "more effective measures" to protect Soviet citizens in Yugoslavia. Or 'r-thatTito accused Russia of double-cross• ing his country and otherwise showing i:: »h'"enemy attitude." What stirs us is how wide the chasm is between this high-pitched, lirawling j;«nd the perfection and beauty we have 'always been told would accompany the creation of a Communist world. Some otherwise rather sensible people have occasionally, in disgust at the confusions of a divided world, hinted that communism enthroned throughout the globe might be a good thing because it would "bring unity." That world-wide communism would not bring unity is what Tito and Stalin are teaching us. From the first moment Russia verbally attacked the Yugoslav dictator, the dream of sweet, reasonable co-operation under communism was broken. The non-Communist nations owe n deep debt to the rebellious Tito, for without his defiance the lesson might have been long in coming. We can be thankful he has the armed strength to permit him to talk back. It would be difficult to overestimate _ the value of this instruction. The idea of a unified world under the Red banner has been one of the chief weapons in Russia's propaganda arsenal. But now we know that relations among nations would be no more serene in a Communist world than they have been foi centuries under a great variety of regimes. We know that Russia and her followers have no magic formula for assuring peaceful conduct among different peoples. The Tito-Stalin exhibition of unity— Communist style—ought to impel tion- Communist countries to redouble their efforts to find a firm footing for peace through reliance on the United Nations, the Atlantic Pact and similar joint ventures. There surely can be no illusions left that there is a better hope of peace in communism spread to every corner of the earth. hit camera along and snapped picture* en rout* to a landing amid the skyscrap- pers. Somebody ought to tell him that for a little more than a dollar he can climb to the top of the Empire State Building and get pretty much the same effect.

VIEWS OF OTHERS Loopholes for Lobbyists Specific information on how not to |0 iOout trying to get a Government contract is contained In today's Mirror of public opinion on Illegal practices. But there are always those who hunt for loopholes In the lobbying law, as the live-per- center Inquiry shows, so the House has decided to investigate lobbying in general. A confusion of proposals face this Congress. Important among them Is a bill to Impose registration on all federal, state or local oflicers who try to Influence legislation. Two others, aimed at five percenters, would require registration ot anyone seeking a Government contract in excess of 125,000, and certification on each contract ol tfforti to Influence legislation. The principal proposal to revise Hie IcbbyitiB law itself conies from Representative Buchanan ol Pennsylvania.. He would require lobbyists to file and report if they seek to raise or spend more than SSOOO to influence action in Congress. This measure would plug one bis hole In the present law, by dropping the provision lor listing only the names of contributors ol more than »500. One lobbyist illustrated the easy evasion ol this provision in collecting $22,8*2 to oppose repeal of tlie Tuft-Hartley law. He reported that tU.OOO came from Individual contributions of less than $500 each. One congress after another has tried to strengthen restrictions on lobbying. A few more cynical members h«ve viewed lobbying as In the nature of things, and corruption and venality at any given period as merely a rellectlon o( contemporary public morals. If this Is so, the case ot Harry Vaughan and the deep freezers is at least in petty contrast with the millions Involved in Government scandals 20 years ago. Today the law Is strict against corrupt officials and venal special Interests, but the difficulty always Is in revealing them. The Home lobbying inquiry should concentrate on how to make detection more effective. ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH Match This, You Ismists.

However, the European cold war ertainly has lost much of its steam i recent weeks, why? Well, ther* re several reasons. for one thing the Communist ffensive for the spread of com- nunism westward across the con- inent long has been definitely halted along the line which It low holds through Central Europ*. The nations west of that line no onger are gravely threatened with communism, much less with being absorbed as satellites. Actually, ommunism has been losing power n countries like Italy and Franc* where It long exercised vast in- 'luence. Democracies Register Galna And with the halting of th« Hed offensive, the nations of Western Europe have made considerable strides toward recovery with th» assistance of the Marshall plan. Their progress in some cases hai been disappointing, but still Western Europe as a whole has gained strength and courage. ^m, Moreover the Atlantic pact ha»r been created by the Western dem- ocracles as a unified defense against agresslon upon any one of them. At the same time the democracies of Europe are In process of creating a united States of Europe which has been the dream of Idealists for generations. All these things have provided powerful- deterrent to Moscow.'a ambitions, but An even greater factor has been the fact that unrest and even disaffection have been showing themselves among the Red satellites. There Is the open defiance of Yugoslavia, the actual revolutionary plot In Czechoslovakia, and the troubles in Hungary. Moscow Kiins Into Trouble In short, Moscow has trouble* eough of her own to keep her busy without, devoting much energy to waging a cold war against the democracies, it looks from here u though she has changed her policy in order to consolidate her own shaky position in her new 8>t«l- lite empire. There is one other Important item which we shouldn't overlook. Moscow is going all out to communize the Far East. A majrA operation in this program Is, th«^ great drive of the Chinese Communist armies which have beea rolling southward until the Nationalist capital of Canton on the south coast Is threatened with capture. Former Foreign Secretary Molotov, the old-time revolutionary Bolshevist who Is one of Stalin'i chief lieutenants, Is said to hava been assigned the. task of directing this Asiatic drive. It may well be that preoccupation with the major operation may also have influenced Moscow to ease up on its cold war In Europe.
