MOHDAY, NOVEMBER 9J, BLYTOTILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW! Johnson Proposes a Continuous Foreign Policy Advisory Group • H YA/1Y «n Y _ . I By JACJt BELL WASHINGTON, Nov. 27. (*>)— Senator Edwin C. Johnson fD-Colo) proposed today the creation of > continuous bipartisan advisory commission to help President Truman shape the nation's, foreign policy. Such a commission should be unaffected by national elecllons, John- sojpaid "so that we would have a permanent foreign policy and oilier nations would know where we sland at all times." . Johnson's proposal came as Senator Hendrickson (R-NJ) announced his support of a demand by Senator TaU (R-Olito) for a re-examination of the American role In international affairs, It came, too, amid indications that much lime of the short Coniress session starting today will be occupied In foreign policy debate. Xaft U Renew t><*uu4 Ta/t,.scheduled to »rrive In Washington during the day, said he will renew his re-examinalion demand despite editorial criticism of his foreign policy views by the Toledo Blade. x Hendrickson was one of the ."lib-- eral, progressive and international- minded senators" to whom the Blade addressed an open letter contending that Tnft's election victory in Ohio did not represent a repudiation of Administration foreign policies. Taft said he thought the newspaper represented only its own views. Willi the Republican attack on foreign policies in mind. Senator .Johnson told a reporter lie believes realistic two-party cooperation on international affairs could be achieved if a commission of six Democrats and six Republicans were set up to advise the President. ."The members of this commission bs chosen by their parties ot (he President" Johnrbn iiuy a<:;'ai to i-eprc-enV the thinking o/ iiisii' parties. It oujni to be a continuous commission, carrying over elections, so that we would have a permanent foreign policy and other nations would know where we stand at all times." Johnson said that such a commission could be given the kind of secret background information about International affairs that the administration has sometimes thought It unwise lo make generally available to Congress. "The commission could digest and analyze the multitude of incidents ihat go into the making of foreign policy," lie said. "It then could rec- nmmend » course to the President Naturally, the President would retain the final decision." "People Lost Faiih" Hendrickson said that while Ohio's election may not have been settled, on foreign policy Issues, he thinks the results all over the con- try Indicated that the people gen- . crally had "lost a lot of confidence in Mr. Truman" and had "lost faith in his policies—or lack of thgm". In fhe-Far East. •[I Ihink the people are becoming concerned with our efforts merely to bil yfriendship abroad instead of using some constructive -means of earning that friendship," the New Jersey senator said. "I don't think the people entirely approve of the way ECA has been operated, particularly «ith'the way iri which some countries which have received aid have been permitted to transship supplies behind tlr Iron Curtain." Senator Wherry of Nebraska, the Republican floor leader, already has served notice that Administration foreign poiicias will come under fire immediately In the'Lame Duck session beginning today. He has said that the lop job of YOUNQ LADY WITH A MESSAGE — Five-year-old Yolanti Pyka of New York City looks over the 1950 poster ur B ing purchase ot Clmsimas Seals in the fight against tuberculosis.

Rodino (D-NJ) says armed services reservists aren't getting a square deal. And what's more, he salrt, he is Roinj to ask the House to do something about it. Rodino said in an interview yesterday, the main complaint under the present draft set-up is that reservists have lo report for active duty on too short notice with no right to appeal their cases to their local draft boards. On the other hand, Rodino said, draftees can appeal their cases as high as the presidential Appeal Board. Hodino suggested a point system in reverse whereby reservists with the least number of points when they were discharged would go back into service first and those with the most points last. "No new legislation -i s needed. It's just a matter of setting up a fair administrative policy." "The complaints ' are pretty "well founded." Rodino added, "it seems to me they (reservists) are being penalized." f© o S.

Personal Appearance Tours Art Tried All this has presented a tremendous problem In public relations, and don't think that the Stale Department boys haven't been working at it. In the past year, top officials of the department have made over 1200 personal appearances, hilling every state and major city. The main purpose has been to show themselves ami convince'popple that they were normal, patriotic Americans without horns and tall. These officials attend forums, lend discussion groups, hold conferences with nny responsible group that wants to confer, They always seem to get good receptions and emb-rrasslngly grateful t h n n k s. They answer thousands of letters from Inquiring citizens. They distribute papers by the million. The department's blest pnmphlet, "Our Foreign Policy," published in Sup- tcmbcr, hns already sold 200,000 copies at 25 cents a copy. Secretary Acheson himself runs a heavy speaking schedule. This month he Is making talks before National Conference of Christians and Jews, and organization of Negro women, the Council Mayors, the National Council of Churches of Christ, the Farmers' Union Grain Terminal Association.
