Russian Actions Bring Swift Passage of ERP It seemed for a time that it would never be possible. But Congress, after a weary time of investigating and reinvestigating, hemming, hawing and obstructing, passed the-foreign aid legislation only one day past the deadline so urgently requested by Secretary Marshal!. The legislators deserve the country's thanks and congratulations for this final burst of speed. And special thanks, it seems to us, should go to Senator Van-' " denberg. He steered ERP through Congress, from its first announcement as the Marshall Plan to its final appearance in legislative form, with the utmost skill and tact. Rifts appeared in his own party over the issue. Tempers flared and views were poles apart. But the difficulties dissolved before the intelligence, experience and patience of the Michigan senator. Certainly Mr. Vandeuberg's high-minded and 'non-political approach to the question of foreign aid set an example for many • of his colleagues, and helped ERP to escape becoming a matter for bitter partisan debate. This swift final action by Congress must have surprised the Kremlin's board of strategy. The setup of their political system suggests that they have no sympathy for debate by representatives of various opinions on the conduct of government. Undoubtedly (he Polit- boro counted on a clash of sentiments in Congress to kill the Marshall Plan. And there were times in the ten months between proposal and final action when the Kremlin hopes might have been justified. But the Russian strategists made one obvious mistake. If they had lain low and given even a sham display of friendliness and co-operation they might have strengthened opposition to the Marshall Plan. But they didn't. Whether it was because they did not dare to take the chance, or because their insular minds are limited to only one source of action, or because their operatives had got out of hand, we don't know. It is clear, however, that every provocative action in Moscow helped to solidify American opinion. The destruction of the Czechoslovakian democracy gave a noticeable spur to congressional action. And right at the end of ERP's legislative history the Russian's highhanded behavior in Berlin hastened final passage. So now the talk is at an end, and the democracies have actually set out on the ' road to positive and promising action. History does not offer any peacetime parallel to this program. It is hardheaded and at the same time humanitarian. America will shortly be ready, with money and goods, to provide Europe 1 -, with some of the things that commun- V- ' i«m promises but cannot deliver. The European p«urticip*nU, for their'part, have agreed to work toward creating an environment of justice and prosperity in which their citizens will not lie tempted to turn to communism in desperation. In the midst of cold war, the free countries of western civilization are at last ready to begin waging peace. MONDAY, APRIL 12.1948 Duties as Well as Rights Rep. Leo Isacson, member of the Communist-controlled American . Labor Party of New York, is mad at the State Department for not giving him u passport to go to Paris to attend a conference of supporters of the Greek guerrillas and their rebel government. These guerrillas are enemies of democracy, and of the (J. S. government. Mr. Isacson is a member of that government. It is reasonable to bar him from consorting with these enemies in his official capacity. Yet he protests that his civil liberties have been violated. This is to be expected, since no Americans holler any louder about their own civil rights than the Communists and fellow travelers. It might be well for Mr. Isacson to reflect that, as a member of Congress, he also had some civil responsibilities. VIEWS OF OTHERS Another National Impasse? Will the present divided administration be set up In reverse a/ter the November election? That Is, will at least one branch of Congress go Democratic even though the Republicans should win the presidency? H is not too early to begin thinking about this possibility because It is altogether possible that the Senate will return to Democratic control regardless of who Is sent to the White House and which party organizes the House. This possibility, not to say likelihood, arises from the fact that the Republicans are In the same fix the Democrats were In two years ago with respect to doubtful seats. Two years ago the Democrats came up with senatorships expiring In doubtful states. This year it is the Republicans who are In that boat. The Republicans now hold 51 seats to 45 for the Democrats. Since « are required for control, the Democrats need to win three scats to tio and four for a majority. Of the 32 seats al stake this year, H are Democratic and 10 of these are In Southern areas. The other Democratic seats are In Rhode Island and New Mexico, .figured aa probably Democratic, and Colorado and Montana, which the Republicans carried two years ago and co now are doubtful. The G.O.P. position is less secure. Of' the 18 Republican scats, seven are figured as sure (or the party: Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oregon and South Dakota. Eight others are much less certain but seemingly give the Republicans an advantage. These are In Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa Michigan, Minnesota. New Jersey and Wyoming. But if the O.O.P. should carry all 15, It still could lose numerical control by failing to hold Republican seats from Kentucky, Oklahoma and West Virginia. These three states may well offer the crucial senatorial races. The Republican incumbent from Kentucky, John shernmn Cooper, has made an excellent Impression in his first year, but his record must go up against the fact thai Kentucky has since returned to the fold with a Democratic Governor. West Virginia Is usually lighting ground. It was in 1946 when Democratic Senator Kllgore narrowly came through. As for Ok- Inhoma, the election of senator Moore as a Republican six years ago was pretty much of a fluke. The Sooner slate voted Josh Lee out rathci than Ed Moore In. It may be that this situation will clarify enough by fall to be the basis on which some voters will mark their ballots for President. We have fallen Into so many pitfalls with control divided that few thoughtful citizens will want to stumble down the jame tortuous road again for the next two years. ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH.
