Why is the United States aiming at the perfection rather than the restriction of the atomic bomb? A writer ' in the Russian publication Pravada asks these questions. And a Moscow radio commentator, in accusing rather than a questionm),' mood, calls our exclusive possession of the methods of atomic bomb manufacture "vulgar common blackmail." He also calls attention to the fact that the House Military Affairs Committee has proposed legislation "preserving the atom bomb as a weapon of the United '. States Army and Navy." •- - If the Russian writer and broad- faster were telling the whole story, 'then their questions might he reason• able and their objections valid. In -some respects the Bikini tests are a :-contradition of our proposals to outlaw 1- atomic warfare. And certainly the militaristic aspects of the House commit'-' tec's, .bill (which disregard objections by the President and the War and Navy secretaries) don't square with our professed policies. " But the Russian writer and broadcaster didn't tell the whole story, of course. If they had, they could have found answers and explanations all -about them. g,.. They might have looked in the ^Russian press on the day before the f: Pravada article and the broadcast in •;; question. There they could have read ^.stories urging "iron discipline" and "./.increased production to enhance the :• power and efficiency of the Soviet rV. armed forces. *- They might have looked at the •fisize of the peacetime Red Army, and .; _of our Army. They might have chcck- ; ed recent speeches by Prime Minister • Stalin and other leaders in which mili- • tary might was stressed as the goal in coming years for protection against ' "fascism" and "capitalistic encircle^ ment." i They might have tried to imagine : how the censorship and secrecy that prevail from the Balkans to the Pacific, the divisive and destructive efforts of American Communists, the several Russian vetoes in the Security Council, and other manifestations, of dubious Russian good will must appear through American eyes. If they had done nil this, they might have found their answers. But it would have been necessary for two highly indoctrinated and regimented Russian minds to be for the moment more American than Russian, which is an impossible feat. ICvon in this country, with its great latitude of thought and expression, few arc able to view Russian tactics, policies and political ideals objectively and sympathetically. Hut at least these two Russians, and some of their more enlightened fellow countrymen, must occasionally admit that tho Soviet Union doesn't have a corner on virtue or suspicion. The Russian government speaks of both a great deal. But it must be clear even in Moscow that some inconsistencies of American policy arise from a confused doubt over what fack the Kremlin is going to take next. Mutual suspicion has ruled Ilusso- American relations almost since the day the war ended. From that can be traced most of those questins—some sincere, others obviously rhctrocial— which are so often expressed jn both countries. And until these two powers can agree to cast, out suspicion and achieve a peaceful misunderstanding of mutual, disagreement but mutual trust, the questions will continue and increase. • FRIDAY, JULY 12, 1946 Just Around the Corner Futile Interference When Col. Juan Peron finally got around to running for president of Argentina, our Stale l)f>r>;irtment issued a scathing, rights••-:•. ,,T«tht'ul indictment of the dictatorial, Nazi- aping, strong-arm bully boy. Colonel Peron won the election. When Gov. Dwight Griswold, popular Nebraskan, was opposing Sen. Hugh Butler's rcnoniination, Harold Stassen invaded the stale to take the stump for Mr. Griswold and attack Mr. Butler's record in the Senate as isolationist. Mr. Butler won. . Mississippi's voters got plenty of outside advice on what to do about Sen. Theodore Bilbo, who seems to bo overwhelmingly unpopular in '17 states of the Union. Mr. Bilbo is going back to the Senate for six more years. The moral doesn't need pointing up.

And because Sally was upset id at the end ot her rope, she lurlcd out the whole story al- nost in one breath.
