Into these gaps, the United States through its Navy and Air Force is putting plugs. They are planes and ships. A comparatively large number of ultra-long-range flying radar stations now are In operation More are being built.. Chiefl, these are the four-engine Lockheed aircraft which the Navy calls the WV2. Lockheed Aircraft Corp. recently announced another 60-million-dollar order from the Navy for the planes. 6 Tons of Radar The company says the radar beam of a WV2, flying at only 10,000 feet altitude, searches more than 45,000 square miles of surface The aircraft can fly much higher than that. It carries six tons of radar eo.uipment including a dozen different s c o p » s which operate separately. This makes it possible for the combined combat information center and interceptor director to track several different groups of friendly and enemy aircraft simultaneously. These flying radar-command post aircraft are In addition to the closer-in surveillance conducted by Air Force and Navy fighter-interceptors operating constantly on patrol and search missions.

House members, who are paid the same amount, would be permitted to spend at least 125,000, or more if figured on the basis of 30 ents a vote, in their general elec- ion campaigns. They now are lim- ted to $2,500 in personally author- zed outlays. All expenditures for candidates n excess of $100 would have to be eported to the Senate, House and Federal District Court in the candidate's home area. Not In Primaries The Johnson-Knowland bill would not apply to primaries. State laws imiting expenditures to smaller amounts would have priority over the proposed new federal law. The bill also would raise the present three-million-dollar limi imposed on the Democratic and Republican national committees ti 20 cents per vote for the hlghes vote cast in any of the preceding three presidential elections. On the basis of the 1952 vote, thl would permit an expenditure 512,310,000 for each major presi dential candidate.

It also would permit televisio and radio networks to give fre and equal time to federal offic candidates whose party polled a least 4 per cent of the popula vote in the previous election or wh could present petitions signed b voters representing 1 per cent i that total. Johnson said the move to intr duce the bill in no way will bypas any recommendations made by special bipartisan committee eight which will organize Wednes day for an inquiry into camnaie contributions, lobbying and influence peddling.

'An administration that (alls to understand the meaning of the re- :«nt Communist offensive is not only soft on communism, but Is unbelievably ignorant as to how to meet the threat."

The main lines of the impending political debate over foreign policy are clearly defined. They are: 1. The cause of the Soviet change From toughness to a more .cooperative strategy and its continuing struggle for the world mastery of communism. Dulles claims that [he tough policies of Stalin'; days nave failed because of the strength of Western anti-Communist alliances.

The effectiveness of U.S. pol icy in.dealing with the new Soviet threat. Dulles claims that the long- established policies of military alliances and foreign military and economic aid are 'sufflcent pro- vded the new ai dauthorlty granted, although he . has ~. claimed even that is essential. His Democratic critics contend that bold new thinking and new plans are needed to deal with what they consider the great d.anger of the new Soviet maneuvers. In his Philadelphia speech, Dulles said leaders of the underdeveloped countries cannot resist popular pressure of Soviet propaganda unless they have some al ternative to the Soviet line for building up the economic inde pendence of the! rpeople. The United States and its allie. must provide this alternative, he said. It would prefer to do so through the outflow of private cap ital, he said, but private capita will not take the risks of loss si that public capital must play i "substantial part."
