Youth reaches for the stars and when the traditional ideals seem to fade away, they seek unorthodox ideals. Youth cannot live without faith and sacrifice. Therefore, so many turn to new gods and when they discover that the new gods are only clay monkeys, they may return to the faiths of their fathers. And for some, such as Alger Hiss, it may' even be too late. "Values had broken down.
This is a real fact. There weren't any values, and the Communist Party seemed to be at a place that had the values. Its people were the most dedicated. It worked the hardest, and it was interested in cultural movements. It was interested In anything you were interested in.
Therefore, you felt this was the only place you could possibly go." This was so true in many countries after World War I. It was what turned Italian youth toward Mussolini and German youth to NATIONAL ADVERTISINO-Joha W. Cullen Company. New York. Oilcefo, Oeveland and Cincinnati.

Positive Approach Bv RAY TUCKER Ties That Bind 4 If "normalcy" such an abused WASHINGTON had not become and misunderstood word in American Domical thinking because of Those "positive programs" promised by Presidentelect Eisenhower on his return from Korea last December, and which were to "induce" the Reds to try for peace, seem as remote as ever. This year's off-again on-again peace talks, featuring a succession of windy "proposals' on the original stumbling-block of prisoner repatriation, have lost whatever luster of hope the earlier editions might have had. And as the shooting and bombing went on, and frontline positions changed hands and men went on bleeding and dying, the Administration In Washington marked time because Sir Winston Churchill was busy in London getting Elizabeth II crowned Queen of what remains of Britain.
Meantime a delegation of South Korean assemblymen met with Lieut. General William Henry Harrison at the UN truce camp to protest the latest proposal as a "surrender" and indicating that South Korea would withdraw from the talks rather than accept such terms. From Seoul came reports that President Singhman Rhee'i Government would continue the war to unify Korea if the UN failed them. And in a speech in his home-town, Senator Robert A. Taft declared: "I believe we might as well forget the United Nations as far as the Korean War is concerned.
I think we should do our best now to negotiate this truce, and if we fail, then let England and our other allies know that we are withdrawing from all further peace negotiations in Korea. gion in Industrial history. Chrysler has also agreed because it could not stand a strike while rivals are in full production. United States Steel may have reached an agreement on a new contract before this column appears. The Fairless-Grace-Taylor interests led in moves for labor peace in New Deal days, and it is unthinkable that they would do anything to embarrass a Republican regime.
These politico-economic deals have had beneficent, collateral effects. They have helped to dispel organized labor's incipient distrust of the administration's Industrial, farm and monetary policies. More Importantly, these new contracts, should not be inflationary. They should keep prices at the present level, for they simply incorporate existing cost-of-living payments into the permanent scale. Finally, even the supreme court seems to have a more serene mood.
Although it has many controversial cases on the docket, and will adjourn soon for the summer, it has, as of today, deferred decisions on many major, disturbing causes. It has decreed in favor of an "era of calm," which is what poor Harding meant by A Couple Of Miserly 'Liberals' It took a man from Hollywood, Robert Rossen, to state a case concisely and sharply. In sworn testimony before the House Committee on Un-American Activities, he said; I don't think, after two years of thinking, that any one individual can even indulge himself in the luxury of individual morality or pit it against what I feel today very strongly is the security and safety of this nation. "This is a government, a democracy of laws and not of men; and the law says that this Congress or this committee of this Congress has a right to inquire into matters affecting the security of this Unit-td States of America. "It's my duty and my right to appear here today, after much thinking, and give you whatever information I have In 1951, this same Robert Ros-sen took refuge under the Fifth Amendment.
He merely stated then that he was no longer a Communist, but he would go no further. However, he reached a point in his relations with his own country and with his conscienbe that left him no alternative but to straighten himself out. Sometimes it is very tough for a man to tell all that he knows. Sometimes it is even harder for a man to give names of colleagues or to denounce what he himself did or what he did in common with others. Often it involves the deepest emotions, pride, personal loyalty, even generosity.
Of this Rossen said in colloquy: "Mr. Tavenncr. The committee may like to know why you have changed your mind about that. "Mr. Rossen.
Well, arriving at a decision like this takes a long time. I'd like to sort of compare it to arriving at a decision to leaving the Communist Party. That takes a long time To arrive at the decision which makes me come here today took me several years." Rossen's testimony is the most integrated and the most informative of any that has come from the Hollywood group. This man has a philosophic mind and is capable of profound analysis. At one point, 'he pictures a young man who believed, that his world had fallen apart:" I felt that I was looking for new horizons, a new kind of society, something I could believe in and become a part of, something in well, in a sense I felt I wanted to attach myself to history; I wanted to be a part of that historical movement, and it seemed to me at the time the Communist Party offered, as far as I was concerned, the only way which that could be effective." We all wonder why so many smart young men turned to this movement.
Rossen was not merely asking for clearance. He was explaining he was telling: "Mr. Clardy. Isn't that one of the reasons why we are afflicted as we are today, because there is not that drive that should come from the inner man to load us into religion? "Mr. Rossen.
Well, I don't know. I think you can find it in many different ways, and certainly anything that tends toward the realization of the inner man, on any level is a good thing; but certainly in the days that I can remember I think most of the intellectual life of the country was, in a sense, anti-religious, or atheist r.i By WESTBROOK PEGLER Up And Down The Main Stem the Harding stigma, it would describe precisely the conditions which President Eisenhower and his top advisers seek to create and preserve for their first year of responsibility. Although it constitutes a radical break from inaugural promises, it represents a positive rather than a negative approach from their viewpoint. It marks an end to "government by crisis," as the 1933-53 period was so frequently characterized. Prospective and public spending, in the official estimate, will maintain the present level of economic activity through 1955, at least.
This conclusion, which is based on a recent review of business and industrial factors, differs from earlier beliefs that there might be a recession next year. That specter has now disap eared. But his comfortable situation could be affected adversely, if there was any abrupt or violent shift in legislative or administrative action simply for action's sake. In short, the new slogan at Washington is "Don't rock the boat or change course too quickly!" This philosophy lies behind the plan to recess or adjourn congress In late July with a minimum of new or provocative legislation. It is probable that the legislators will merely pass the necessary money bills, extend the Reciprocal Trade Agreement for one year and renew the Excess Profits Act.
Both taxes and tariff will undergo an intensive twelve-month study. No explosive legislation in the economic or social field will be enacted. Barring unexpected bipartisan revolts, there will be no revision of Taft-Hartley, no extension of social security coverage, no other welfare no attempt to tamper with the present agricultural arrangements. Secretary George M. Humphrey may slow down his movement to boost interest rates on federal issues, while he observes the results of his first deflationary trial runs.
If prices and wages remain fairly stable, so will he. In fact, it was his suggestion that the ship of state drop anchor for a while. Wall Street friends of Eisenhower's "millionaire cabinet" deserve an assist for underwriting the era of comparative calm at Washington. Their amicable and prompt settlement of wage disputes has removed from the national battleground several issues which ranged the "economic royalists" against D. R.
and Truman. The "members of well-fed clubs" now cooperate rather than feud with the White House. Defense Secretary Charles E.

The boss-almoner of the first New Deal topped Bubblehead by only 25 cents and with a final, mocking leer at my friend's distress at Henry's benevolence, was off and away. My friend drew the leader's car on a couple of trips to Hyde Park and his tip was uniformly $2.50 each way from the fuehrer and usually, nothing from the others in the circle who would be either family or bleeding-hearts and thus, as we know, unwilling to degrade the colored people by largesse when opportunity was what they craved. On some of those excursions the car would lie up for three or four days and my friend finally had to signify in terms incapable of any other meaning that he could' not afford to waste his time on that nickel-bender back at the rear end. Newspaper men, photographers, even radio pundits, who run heavily to wisdom and thus, inevitably, to thrift, he would gladly serve in the hyena car where they made hideous sounds far into the night and, once, threw a package of firecrackers into the shoe-box of a drawing room which had been preempted by Norman Davis, the old Roosevelt retainer and house-pet who was dead-heading It up to Berchtcsgaden-on-Hudson to promote himself a $25,000 job as president of the Red Cross.
Newspaper men, photographers and even some radio philosophers observed a uniform rate of a dollar apiece, each way. With a normal complement of 20, my friend could scratch a living, although lay-overs thinned him out, even so. My friend agrees with me that the term "liberal" has become a mockery and it is his further divination that the Repubicans were driven to an unwonted lavishness by the painful reiteration of the word "greed" as a synonym for their lofty principles. I am more than half persuaded to this view because Anna Roosevelt bitterly complained of a similar phenomenon in her life after that rat, or, as her father preferred to call him, that Slimy Snake, Pegler, had nick-named her husband, John Boettiger, Fumble John and founded in the public mind the low canard that, in Chicago, where John had been a reporter, a nickel was called a Boettiger. As one who holds in a certain awe men who are able to control their generosity, I have studied many of them from the late Char, lie Ebbetts, owner of the Dodgers, on through Roosevelt, his wife, the boys, Wallace, Ickes and Boettiger.
And on the basis of personal acquaintance I can affirm that Fumble John was most conserva-tive. All I did in Fumble John's case was give the man credit, but Anna said these comments pricked something in his psyche and moved him to extravagance, "That rat," she is reported to have said, "has cost us $1,000 in extra tips!" THE NATIONAL Safety Council predicted 240 traffic deaths over the Memorial holiday. The. nation's drivers lived up to all expectations: 241 persons died in highway mishaps. That proves something or another about ourselves as drivers.
And it ain't good. SCIENTISTS have figured out that man occupied the famed Carlsbad caverns of New Mexico some 4,000 years ago. Archeolo-gists have labelled that hardy race the Basket Makers.
