Fulbright may be mentioned at the Democratic National Convention with more seriousness than th« tons of the favorite-son movement might suggest. Cerlainl.r, (he Democratic party, now groping- for a leader, could do much worse than extend serious consideration to its two extremely nble Southern senators, Mr. Fulbrighl and Richard Russell. Both impress us as being earnest in discharging their obligations of office. Surely their records bespeak of staundi- er presidential timber than does that other southern gentleman, Senator Estes Kefauver, glamor boy of the TV screen, who appears to stand for nothing and to fall for just about anything. Senator Fulbright first gained prominence as author of the Fulbright Resolution, a mnsterpiece in the concise manner in which it set forth the aims of the United Stales when it entered World War II. Of course, he gained the most front page space when lie conducted HID lie- construction Finance Corporation investigation, which lie refused (o capitalize on politically. Senator Fulbright enjoys the reputation of being a scholar and a hard-working, sincere lawmaker. Ho's the typo ajxmt whom the Democratic Party could build in the face of resurgent Republican power. Reds Must Swallow Bitter Pill If They Want Truce The CdiiHiHinisls are now daring L'.V iK'Koiiiiiors lo In-oak off the truce ta'ks at I'inimun.jom. There is little else left for (hum. to do. si HIV the barrenness <»f their bargaining position has been thoroughly exposed. Tii,: stumbling blocks in the palh of » truce have boon iviluved to one—tiie issue of repatriating prisoners. We fliitly rc-nise i» inni b;ick to llio Reds sonic C.O.non North Korean and Chinese who have s.iiiil they do not wish to return. We will not commit them lo death or slavery. For the Communists this is obviously a bitter pill. They cannot bring themselves to admit before the world that there are 60,000 people familiar with Communist life who do not care lo enjoy its "benefits" again. Yet they will have to concede this if there is to be a truce. For we will not yield this point, and there is nothing else on which we can give way. That means that *t last w« are approaching the moment of real decision. At last w« are going to find out whether the Reds really want a truce or not. Supiwse the answer is "no." What the military sequel will be is anybody's guess. Certainly we will try to keep the Korean war on a limited fooling, even though we may adopt new measures not Heretofore irted. our commanders insist, too, that we have the substance lo contain any new Red offensives, despite the big build-up the Communists have managed during the protracted truce talks. It would be foolish lo pretend that we would be ".better off" untlcr these altered circumstances. Almost nothing related to the Korean situation, either existing or foreseeable, is a subject for American cheers. Our choice seems to be from among varying degrees of badness. What, for instance, would be the outlook for the 12,000 to W,000 U.S. and Allied prisoners held by the Reds? We need not fear that they would be executed, for the repercussions of the Russians' Kntyn Forest massacre of Polish soldiers have been severe enough to convince the Kremlin that world opinion cannot be ignored. Yet there is no denying it would require long and painful negotiations — under new circumstances—to free these men. They and their relatives at home would have to sweat out more months of what is unriueslionably a nightmarish ordeal. Short of a yielding by the Reds on repatriation, there is no reasonable alternative. tf we were to hand the Reds the prisoners who don't want to go back, we would suffer in several ways. Few Asiatic Communists ever would surrender ���«gniii, since they would simply be faced with Ihe choice of death at enemy hands or later den 11) or slavery nl Red hands. Communists fighting to the death in combat mean more A'merican and Allied casualties. Secondly, we would ba committing a crime against humanity for which the world, and especially the Asiatic world, would never forgive us. Who would believe American talk of freedom if we were unwilling to protect men who want to be free? The possible breakdown of fruce talks is not something we can contemplate with satisfaction. But if these 300- odd days of indecision have nurtured false hopos of early peace, It is better that they be clashed. It is better to know the truth than to dream-wildly of a day that may be far off.

The Abilene press conference could of course be turned into an endless free-for-all. General Eisenhower may choose to issue a statement outlining his platform. Or he may choose to say that he will make statements on some issues at later dates. » • • TIIE GENKHAt. Is being urged to make speeches in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York.

Robert Taft has his greatest strength. General Eisenhower's position on foreign policy towards Europe has of course been stated In detail. Mr. Hoffman feels he should make some clarifying statement on the Far East situation. fn studying the past speeches and statement!, of General Eisenhower Mr. Hoffman—talking now like a c.tnirMtei! manager—says he found the general "takes ti new approach to all problems. Ike never Quibbles over the past. He is always looking ahead." APPLYING this principle lo questions like the Far East. Mr. Hoffman thinks his candidate will steer clear of comment on things like the MacArthur Issue. Instead, he is expected to offer his ideas on what can be done now to. solve the present problem instead of merely trying to make an issue of controversy out of it. Similarly. Mr. Hoffman does not expect General Eisenhower to touch Ihe subject of McCarthyism as a specific issue. Mr. Hoffman believes the general will make clear where he stands on the matter of freedom of speech. One of the notes General Elsenhower has struck most often is the importance of maintaining freedom, says Mr. Hoffman. He hopes that Ike can take us out of the atmosphere of fear and hate into an era of good will and conll- dence. "ISSUES I.IKE McCarihyism became important because we didn't have the right atmosphere In this country." says Mr. Hoffman. "We should be able to treat such mat- ter.s u-ith thunders of silence. 1 Mr. Hoffman says he sees no possibility of a deadlock at Chicago. He thinks Senator Taft will show his Rreatcst strength on the first ballot and lose thereafter. No thought has been given to « vice presidential candidate to run with Ike-, says Mr. Hoffman. He opposes the idea that this vice presidential candidate should be an ultra-conservative to provide a "balanced ticket."
