Improbable That Russians Could Localize War on Tito \ How long can "Marshal Tito of Yug| oslaviii remain a, thorn in Russia's side? | The Soviet Union and her eastern , European satellites have scrapped whole- i* mutual aid and friendship trea- l tie* they had with Yugoslavia, empha- ',«zing that stronger measures are in -th« making'to stamp'but-Tito'a mutiny. j Foreign affairs observers believe the J Kremlin has decided it can no longer ; rtol«fmt«'th« challenge of Titoism. This ; rebellion tends more and more every day to damage Russian prestige before '.•tht-;,world and undermine the jerry- ; .built itructurs of Soviet- relations with ita immediate neighbor!. But it »eerna likely that ; Tito, em- ' ( boldened by economic aid from the United States and the prospect of more help ! from other western powers, .will-resist all attempts to crush him by mere poli- , tical pressure and economic strangulation. In fact, sortie American and British experts are said to have concluded that I Moscow can only break Tito if it is willing to use the Red Army. Tito has already shown that h« can deal effectively with Russian-inspired sabotage and guer- riila attacks. More strenuous tactics ; would appear to be the only other • •' course open. : If invasion is indeed the sole avenue : left to the irritated Soviet leaders, the j question it how the attack might be managed to keep it from spreading to a continent-wide or world conflict. One suggestion is that the Russians might employ assault units dressed up as anti-Tito Yugoslavs. The aim would be to give the world the impression that the outbreak was a civil uprising . patterned ; .on the Greek war. It could ; then be fed by men and materials pushed across Yugoslavia's borders by neighbor. ; ing Russian satellites. The approach is unlikely, however, • 'to fool world opinion, no less than if the attack were an unconcealed Soviet * enterprise. Yugoslavia is certain to ask ; the United Nations, in such an event, to condemn the use of force against her. ">•'. However an attack would oe mount; ed, the United States and other western nations probably would step up economic assistance to Tito and even send considerable amount! of military equipment. This help almost certainly would fall short of any outright commitment to defend Tito with western armies. But •the risk of involvement for the western powers would still be very great, inasmuch as Russia would feel compelled to choke off .the flow of outside aid as completely as'possible. Things having.gone as far as they , havt, is there any way of persuading the Soviet Union not to undertake this final critical stage in her effort to de- stroy TOo? . Perhap* If Russia can be made to realize how great i* the likelihood of an unmanageable world war instead of * neatly controlled local conflict with Yugoslavia, she will be deterred from using force. She may conclude that it is better to Hve wjth * troublesome thorn in her flesh than to hazard, a war that could inflict mortal wounds upon her and many other nations. Citizen of- the Hoosegovv Garry Davis, the young man who gave up his American citizenship to become a "world citizen," has been pursuing his aim of world federation in odd ways lately. He was :arrestcd in Paris for his insistence on'being allowed to go to jail. Several times he camped himself on the doorstep of a military prison, demanding to be tossed in as a companion to Jean Moreau, who is serving a sentence as a conscientious objector. Finally police took Davis into custody and charged him with lack uf proper identity papers, an offense for which he had gone scot free for more than a year. He was adjudged guilty and sentenced to eight days in jail. But he was immediately released because he already had been detained that long.- If there is anything of significance for world unity in all this weird maneuvering we would be happy to have it pointed out fay Global Garry. ' Views of Others Spat With the President Signs are that the White House !> Involved'In th« family spat over farm aid which Is splitting the Administration forces In Congress, only cryptic itatements were forthcoming after Democratic leaden met with President Truman. "The President asked them to get together on •a bill he can «lgn," said White House Secretary. Boss. "You may make what Implications you please." T , Senator Lucas, the Democratic leader, was just as sharp. "No comment," he snapped. "Let the Resident talk If he wants to." There is reason, however, for believing that Representative White of California was correct when he said that the President, wants support payment* for basic crops at 90 per cent ol parity. Vice' President Barkley probably reflected Whit* House sentiment when he 'broke a recent tie : vote in favor of the so, per cent formula. The Sen ate.'however, reversed that position at the behest of Senator Lucas. He Is for the compromise offered by Senator Anderson oi New (Mexico, formerly Secretary ot Agriculture. This calls for payments on a sliding acale from 75 to »0 per cent. It was offered when the farm lobby sharpened Its knives for the Aiken' law whtcn would cut some payments as low as 60 per cent —also on a sliding scale. It may be that enough Congressmen are determined that the Alken law ihil! not go Into effect as scheduled on Jan. l,~~i»50.' If »uch Is" the lact, th« President would do wen to go along with men like senator Lucas and Senator Anderson. While giving a little ground to the farm bloc, they are determined to save some of the benedts of the Alken measure. The former Secretary of Agriculture must realize that 90 per cent payments may have made sens* In lime of war when It wa« necessary to push productivity to the highest possible leveui. Now, however, they only mean piling up unmarketable surpluses at a double coil, to the American people in taxes and high food prices. No doubt, the President has the farm vote In mind when he asks for 90 per cent payments. Hla Senate leader, however, takes a' broader view when he holds out for at least a compromise scale. The fact that Mr. Lucas has won considerable Republican support for the Anderson clan helpa to take the Issue, out of partisan politics. . Mr. Trumin might do worac than to give a little thought to the grocery-buying votes alienated by the 90 per cent parity program. There are more grocery buyers than farmers. -ST.

WASHINGTON —(NBA)— Congress has received several reports this summer on the effectiveness and size of the Communist propaganda effort In France anci how It is sabotaging American aid efforts there. It poses the problem of whether to make American propaganda efforts In France as rough and tum T ble and expensive as those of the Commies, or whether to continue the present dignified and scrupulously honest efforts to sell th'e French on the virtues of democracy. There are many specific examples of Just, how the French Reds have operated. When a minor dispute between the U.S. and England over aluminum purchases with ECA funds developed, the Communist propagandists put out the following Hue: "Behold capitalism and capitalists. Behold the titans of industry with no honor, ethics, or honesty, even when one (America) Is allegedly balling out another In order to preserve the solidarity of international capitalism. Even here ruthless. Instinctively compet- tive capitalists try to cheat each other. No, my friends, only in the Communist fallh Is there true jrotherhood, true selflessness, true dentity of interests between coun- irics." The day after the French government announced a proposal to Improve the -tax program, the Red press said: The Marshall Plan Gauleiters yesterday cracked the whip and the Every citizen In a democracy has a right to gainful employment. The physically handicapped become valuable assets to the community when given this opportunity.—Murray D. Lincoln, Ohio • • • Farm Bureau leader. The Soviet Union speaks to us of peace while calling lor aggression against- Yugoslavia and demanding the installation of a government subservient to Its wishes.—Herman Santa Cruz, Chilean delegate to United Nations. • • • Sensational trials are being staged, such as the recent Ra]k trial in Hungary, whose Machlavcllls- tic fantasy in Its accusations against Yugoslavia has earned It a leading place In the history of International provocations. One Is aghast at the morals of those who stage such grim and cniel farcer. — Yugoslav Foreign Minister Edward KardelJ. • • • Government financial aid will be required If we art to overtake and pass the subsidized British aircraft Industry In Its bid for domination o! the future jet transportation field— Well wood B. Beal, Boeing Airplane Company vice president. » • » Hardly anyone comes up and speaks to a sailor these days. During the war, nearly everyone h»d someone in the service and they were friendly wilh all the men—John Whilaker, Boal- •waln'i matt. government quislings went through their paces. Our 'leaders' have surrendered the sovereignty of France to the carpetbaggers from Wall Street." . On East-West trade This Is the typical "Communist press line on the subject of East- West trade: "American expansionists have found a new trick to prevent trade between East and West. The 'Marshal Iized' countries are forbidden to send goods to Eastern Europe on the flimsy ground that it might increase the military potential of the Soviet Union. This policy has dealt a severe blow to'France, which has thus lost Its historic eastern European markets." When ECA announced Its quarterly total of authorizations to France the Communists printed: "America's vaunted sacrifice for European recovery Is less than the cost of Its clgaret bill." Ineffective as these words appear to the average American, Congress has been -told that the average Frenchman — even the non-Cona- munfst—Is Impressed with them. A parliamentary deputy who Is also leader of an Important non- Communist party makes this frank statement In a report: "A mass of people, certainly 60 per cent, has heard about the Marshall Plan and has a scrambled, vague knowledge that It Involves American gifts which must be viewed with great suspicion. Accuse U.S. of Selfishness "If there ts one categorical state- ment to be made on this subject'it is that not one Frenchman In 500 believes that there Is any element of good faith involved In this thing. They're sure that America is motivated only- by St» own economic needs. "Another point: Despite the admirable effort of ECA to explain the objectives—the basic ideas of the Marshall Plan — the Frenchman's awareness of it stems from Bed publicity. Volumewls*e It is all one- sided. Incidentally, I do not believe that there are 20 deputies among my colleagues hi the Chamber who have a knowledge of the principal provisions of the Marshall Plan. From the standpoint of its success this may be a good thing." It is reported that "the Communist Party in France Is running one of the greatest publishing operations ever performed by a political force in any country at any By DeWfft Ma«Kehzl6 AP Forelin Affair* Analyst Russian Premier Joseph Stalin has sent a message of congratulations to the leaders of the new Soviet-dominated East German Republic In which he characterize! the advent of this regime as a "turning point In the history n f Europe." That sweeping statement may be window dressing for a formal occasion, but It's one which «« shouldn't dismiss lightly as Just another bit of political propaganda It is a shrewd observation by one of the world's shrewdest minds It certainly could be an accurate forecast for It Is within the range of possibility though It may not be probable. The significance of the Communist chief's appraisal, as i se e it rests in a point which this coli has been emphasizing—that many is the heart of European <.„.,- thiental developments. That waa true before the great war, and it will be true again. , It isn't Just a freak of fortune that the cold war has revolved about the fallen Reich. So If one may be permitted to try to read Stalin's mind, lie is figuring on the ultimate unity ot the new Red East German Republics and the democratic Western Republic which recently was formed from the zones occupied by America, Britain and France. He thinks that the unified Germany will be communistic. However, let's assume for the sake of argument that he Is right. Then where do we stand? The answer Is that such a de,, .. - , velop we should nave as a corollav» If the cause of these coudltlons a Russo-Oerman "alMance" whlrt Is so vague, it i s naturally difficult "•-'•• '-• -•'--•• • - cn to know what can be done about them. Some Improve by taking regular exercise and regular sleep Others—perhaps most—are better- when they have had a vacation nd are more rented than wrien they have been under the strain of work or household duties. Those who complain-of nervousness and excessive response to emotion can hardly ever be helped very much by anything which can be done for them In a medical or surgical way. Perhaps the only advice which can be given Is for them to learn to live with themselves and to Ignore so far as possible the unpleasant symptoms which they blame on a "highly-strung nervous system."

Moscow and Berlin signed the non- aggression pact which enable! Hitler to send his military steamroller across Western Poland while Russia, by agreement, marched in and annexed the. Eastern portion. It happened that the two fell out and a universal conflagration followed. but that didn't detract from the exhibition of efficiency displayed by the Russo-German comoina while it lasted. So with all this as background If.'s easy to see why the cold war centers in control of Germany.. The Western allies are going all-out to attract the Eastern German Republic Into trie Western German government. The Russians, working through the East German govein- ment; are equally bent on winning over West Germany. And the ,' side which wins the battle will have won the cold war.

What should Boscowitz in the North play, the queen the Jack or the three of diamonds?
