Until a final decision , ' U ha'd, it is unlikely any profound change will occur in the American Com- x ! munist Party except the necessary development of new leadership. But what then? Foster and Miss Flynn insist that if the convictions are upheld the party will not go under- X ground, as some of its spokesmen threatened in the closing days of the nine \ ^ 'months'.-trial. ' Yet it is'hard to see how it can do •; otherwise if the jury in that trial has ; correctly gauged the aim? ahd-purposes. :, of the party. '": ^~^ ; i The 11 : leaders were convicted of :• conspiracy to teach and advocate the ', overthrow of the U. S. government by , force and violence. To make a case ' against these defendants, government . lawyers had to. satisfy the jury that the C entire party is.bent upon auch a con' spiracy. Thej 1 had to convince the jur- ; ors that the organization is not a legitimate American political party but mere; ly masquerades .as one to achieve its " revolutionary aims. ;: If that is a proper measure of American communism, then the chances are great that the party's true purposes will '^ remain unaltered. But henceforth—assuming the convictions are upheld—any other Communist leaders are on notice that they face the same fate suffered by the present It. Consequently, these future leaders must go underground if they are to escape indictment for conspiracy. They ! must lake with them all evidences thai ; the party is still what the American courts will have said it was—a plot to overthrow the government forcibly. It is conceivable the heart of the ; party's work may be driven underground ; while the facade of a regular party is . still maintained above ground. For this case does not appear to outlaw the Communist Parly nor to make its members ; automatically subject to penalties for conspiracy. In every instance, the-government will have to prove the guilt ot conspiring Communists. It will have to get below the surface and expose their revo- . Ultionary intent. This looks like a continuing advantage for the Communists, this privilege Of keeping- the false facade in place. Hut-actually it will not make much dif.' ferene«. The truth is the Communist Views of Others Finances and Politics 11 should in Its way have the etiect of nn atomic bomb—this protest of Dr. Edwin U. Nourse against the government's "slipping back into deficits as a way of life." As chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers,- Dr. Nourse, who is now resigning, was the government's No. 1 economist It is especially disturbing'that he is reported lo believe that he has failed to keep the Economic Council on a strict professional plane of fact-finding and advice-giving, "divorced from politics." Dr. Nourse Is uneasy, as many other citizens must be, to see the government acciimulHting "eigantiu surpluses" of farm commodities while it pays subsidies out of'federal deficits. And on the .same day hij statement, was made, Washington dispatches deal- Ing with farm price .support legislation spoke of the reluctance; of political parties to reclute supports "lest Jjliey alienate the farm ; vole." Political fina'iice Is hoi sound finance. H sound /finance should reside artywhere .It should '-•restde in'; the federal government. The financial -.'soundness of ;lhe government concerns eyery man, woman »nd child in the country. The financial soundness of the government Is'worth more than winning the congressional elections ol 1950 or the presidential election of 1952. It is worth more to the politicians themselves, It tiiey only knew it. would be unseating retribution II they betrajj-ed the country to grab at political advan- lase." —ARKANSAS GAZETTE Not Even Good Pol itic.s Senators'Aiken and Anderson understand the /ami problem and -the farmers' thinking per_ .haps as well as any members of Congress. Senator ilucse. majority leader, comes irom the heart ol the Illinois farm belt. Not one ol them is a iyr» in'practical politics—the latter two, In pariicuiar, are sometimes accused by Uielr opponents of being politicians firsthand last- In view ol all this, their advocacy oL the flexible support doctrine embodied in the Anderson bill puts President Truman's reported insistence on a rigid 90 per cent ol partly in a strange and not .very edifying light. Mr, Truman Is said to have urged party farm leaders in the Senate to come up with H bill that would hold the I arm vote for the Democrats. • . Is this the local polittctaii in him, preoccupied with this voting bloc and that, again spoiling Mr. Truman's often generalized out smetre desire to do a good job as president? U so, the Senate's passage of the Anderson bin may indicate thai these iL-naturs are closer lo this voting bloc than Ls Mr. Truman, They may know Unit the House has reacted largely to the ohorL-range thinking characteristic, of most pressuie groups. .-Could the president be calculating that by continuing 90 uer cent supports surplui-es will so pile up on the government's minds thai (he Brannan plan will then appeal as the logical and immediately available measure of relief? That, as an explanation, sounds too devious for Mr. Truman.

"^* lli '* 1 PETER EDSONS Washington News Notebook Defense^ Secretary on Ticklish Spot When He Locks Horns With Georgian WASHINGTON—(NEA)—An important factor in the big Navy- unification dispute which hasn't been-brought out is the personality ol Carl Vinson (D-Ga), the big, aggressive,'strong-willed boss of the House Armed Services 'Committee. Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson put his finger on the'crlix of .1 real problem while he was.appear- iug before a recent secret session of Vlnson'S; committee. The .two men w*ere arg'uing over'a; defense matter when Johnson ba'nged his fist on the table and said: ' "I think. .Mr. Vlnsbn, that this has boiled down to "'A question ' of •whether you are going to rim this country's armed forces or whether It's plain why Johnson's ad,vtsers are trying very hard to keep him on the best possible terms with Vinson. If he wanted to, Vinson could make life very miserable for Johnson, as well as blur his record at the Pentagon. Vinson is the key military man on the Hill. It's almost essential that he and Johnson get.along at, least reasonably well. But now there's even a stronger motive for Johnson to be on good terms with the big Georgian. Already it is being hinted that Johnson ought to be given another job on the grounds that he lias made too many permanent enemies in the Navy Department to do an effective Job in the future. If a bitter personal fight between the two men should develop over the Navy ruck- ns, or anything else, Johnson's enemies would have a potent argument to the President for at least getting him out of the Pentagon. One of the difficulties of the sit- uation Is tlie fact that the two men are so much alike. Both are hard drivers, impatient with detail.s and delay,' resentful of having their decisions challenged and not too diplomatic in the way they handle people. Vinson rims his committee something like Johnson runs the Pentagon. He'll snap off questions put by other congressmen, make arbitrary decisions and frequently come close to flatly- insulting other members of the group. • They also share the. ability to get a lot of things done In a hurry. Vinson's committee is consistently far ahead of the work of the Senale Armed Services' Committee. Another element In this ticklish situation is the great friendship and rrspcct—amounting almost to reverence—which Vinson had (or figures In the present fight between Johnson and the admirals. Stray Sheep Returns Two years ago the Navy thought it had lost Vinson as its best friend in Congress. That was when lie devoted so much of his time to leading the light lor the ID-group Air Force, in the face of the President's opposition. Then the admirals weve sure that he htul deserted their side this summer during the first B-3G hearings. He hardly gave the Navy a chance to speak before he declared the first section ot the hearings at an end, with Air Force officials cleared of any charges of conniving on B-36 contracts. Now, the admirals think they have Vinson back on their team The \vay he has handled the Navy's side of the current dispute before Johnson's predecessor, James For-i congress, they hope, proves it. Vin- .v-stai T>,»,, ,.-,,ri,.rf inn.n.*,- I- •'—' s(m . i s vcally "the'key figure in deciding which side will finally end up winner. As far as being well informed on military matters, few civilians In the U.S. equal him. In fact, there are few men In the services who have his complete understanding rcstal. They worked.together .in the closest and most co-operative manner. Some Pentagon observers think that this tends to make Vinson resent it when Johnson reverses any policy which Forrestal put into effect. In 1952 Vinson became chairman of the House Naval. Affairs Committee and held the'job until the group \vas combined 'with the Military Affairs Committee in the recent congressional reorganization. He had served on the committee since 1914. the first year he wis elected to Congress. During those years he was a zealous Navy champion. He is now referred to as the "father" of the modern American Navy. A maga 7/ne article in the r '30s called hirr.
