Summing Up Geneva Both President Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles have wisely determined to sound a fresh note of hop* for peace in the wake of the futile Geneve* foreign ministers' conference. They understand that the United States, the acknowledged leader of the Western coalition of free nations, cannot give way to a mood of defeatism in the quest for peace. Its moral position in the world demands that it reaffirm—as the President has quickly done — the earnestness of our continuing search. In that spirit, Dullei sought in Hi* report to the nation on Geneva to salvage what hope he could from that dismal meeting. He said he did not think the Geneva setback increased tht danger of » hot war. He voiced doubt that Russia would resume the harsher tactics of the Cold War. And he said he believes the Kremlin wishes now to maintain "at least the appearance of cooperative relations" with the West. Dulles note Mr. Eisenhower'* statement that the earlier "summit" meeting at Geneva had reduced the chancel of general war. The secretary s»id that nothing which occurred at the foreign ministers' gathering compels a change in the President's estimate. But, on the negative side of the ledger, Dulles made clear that the cause of peace did not get the forward push the West hoped for at the conference. Moscow simply is not ready to pay the price they must create the basic circumstances for a stable peace. "We must assume that the Soviet Union will continue its efforts by means short of war," he said, "to make its system prevail as it has done in the past." "i s reasons are plain. The Russians still firmly believe communism will truimph, that time is on their side. They are unlikely to yield so long as they rejjard the evidence for this conclusion convincing. Dulles suggested that if the West can maintain the admirable unity if displayed al Geneva, and can keep up its decisive strength, the realists in Russia might be made to see that their estimate of victory is wrong. Only then could we expect them to pay the necessary price for a genuine world settlement. Dulles' report could not h»v« been cheerful in the circumstances. But it gave no satisfaction either to those at home or abroad who like to assail this government as professionally gloomy over the outlook for pe«c«. It WAI as hopeful as the facts permitted. And it faced the facts -without despair. To Cut—Or Balance? Th« political witMcrts cxptct Con* trees to cut taxex in the 1956 election to juitify it or not. About all that can b« l*id right now it that the budget indication* are a little closer than a while ago to justifying such action. Budget Director Rowland Hughes, in a report to President Eisenhower, said that the government hopes to balance the federal budget both in the present fiscal year (ending next June 30) and the following one. The explanation comes from the continuing boom, which has sent tax receipts, especially from corporations, soaring to unexpected levels. The improved tax situation is good news, naturally. We haven't had many balanced budgets since the late 1920'?. A question arises here. If a tax cut is to be voted, will the lawmakers so limit it as to keep the budget in balance? Or will they slash on such a scale as to plunge the nation right back into deficit financing? Everyone likes tax relief. But it Would also be nice, for a change, to see a surplus in being long enough to make a few dents in the whopping federal debt. Reducing the debt has become the forgotten project of the century. VIEWS OF OTHERS Foot In His Mouth Howard Pyle. on< of president Eisenhower's assistants, dropped a remark the other day that h« ought to havt been sorry for the moment he uttered it. What the former Republican governor of Arizona said was this: •'You can't build a strong army out of deserters from the opposition." By winy, of course, he meant political party, and since h< was obviously speaking as a Republican, "deserters" meant Democrats who jump the fence. Unless what Pyle *aid VIA badly ripped out of context u reported by the newspapers, then his statement advise* Republicans not to try to entice Democrats onto their registration rolls. Presumably if Pyle were a Democrat, he would offer the same advice in reverse. This seems rather odd counsel for any party seeking to expand. One would think, voters could be drawn from a bottomless reservoir Where can a party get new recruits? 1. Brand-new votera just come of age. 2. Newly naturalized citizens who never have been allowed to vote before. 3. Stay-at-homes who for one reason or another have never troubled to vote, yet whose views are prttumed to be known. 4. Floaters who finally settle down and register after bouncing around so frequently they seldom, if ever, qualify &s legal residents under voting 1m. 5. Members of the opposition party. The crop of young new voters is always a fairly limited segment, even with our rising population. The floaters and naturalized citizens, are relatively negligible factors. The late Senator Taft of Ohio put great store by the stay-at-homes. He was convinced Republican victory could be built on getting them to the polls, but it never worked out that way. The numbers which could be stirred to action were too often disappointingly small. The really big pools to draw from are the registered list» of active voters In the two major parties. By their occasional or systematic shifts of allegiance, millions affect the balloting results in this country. One would imagine their permanent shift would be greatly desired by both the parties. To cloie the door on them is to contend that Republicans tor Democrats* are born, not made It Is to argue that affiliation can be guidde only by original membership, not by transfer. A forceful, dynamic party should welcome all comers. If it has to fear the "corrupting" influence of deserters from the opposition, then that is a definition of its own weakness. The Republicans hardly owe Pyle a vote of thanks for suggesting: that they operate like an exclusive clue. No club evrr won a presidential election.—Gastonia tN.C.t Gazette. Make The Guilty Pay In some aborginal tribes o( Africa, the slayer of a father is required to take over the future support of the man's family. The killer must feed and clothe the widow and her children as long as it is necessary- It could work here too. Apart from cases of murder, where iasucs often are beclouded, it could work exceptionally well when pedestrians and motorist* die through no fault of their own but through the carelessness of an automobile driver. Such deaths occur virtually •very day on South Carolina's highways alone. The ij*u«s of guilt or innocence could be determined in court as now. But tht punishment, for fuilt, could be the support of survivor* irwtend of jail or probation. Such »n approach would probably please nobody except the survivors, but they are the ones moct intimately concerned In the traffic toll of innocents. Though should be given to them first. —Greenville tS.C.) piedmont. SO THEY SAY I have had to le«rn how to get along without people who say outrageous things about me.—A. B. (Happy) Chandler, Kentucky's governor-elect. # * * There, is « thin line between tgresslve footbtll and getting banged up ta Juat part of the game —an occupational hazard. — Bobby Thomason, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback on "dirty" foot- It's Going to Be a Tough One to Ignore Peter Cdson's Washington Column — Russians Using Economic Aid As Newest Cold War Weapon By PETER EDSOX NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON —iNEA)— Soviet Russia is now stepping up economic warfare against the free| world. This is seen in Washington! as the newest phase of the cold | war. Vhere political subversion has not proved effective in the past, the Communists are now apparently hoping that economic penetration will succeed. The trip of Russian leaders Bulganin and Khrushchev to Afghanistan, Burma and India is vewed as sales promotion- The Russians are already building roads and communication facilities in Afghanistan. They are building a steel mill In India. Through the. Czechs, an offer has been made i to build another steel mill in India j and one in Burma. ) The widely publicized Czech riealj to swap surplus arms to Egypt for, raw cotton is only one phase of! Communist Infiltration in this area. Considered just as important, though not as great a war threat, is the Russian offer to build the Aswan dam on the Nile River. | The Russians have oifered to fi-j nance construction at 2 per cent! interest. That is tough to beat. The World Bank proposal to H-i nance the dam is at 4 per cent.] The purpose behind these deals j Is analyzed here as no ' '.endlyi gesture to liberalize cultural re- \ lations. An ambitious, two-fold motive is seen. The first i? to plant Soviet technicians in the free world countries. Indication of this is found in the new Russian interest in technical assistance to underdeveloped countries through the United Nations. The second aim Is believed to be a simple matter of securing critical materials. Getting rice from Burma, cotton from Egypt, rubber from Ceylon, coffee from Brazil, wheat and meat from the Argentine and Uruguay are examples. In exchange, the Russians have been drawing freely on the resources of their European satellites. Thus Polish coal, East: German chemicals and Czech machinery have figured in some of the Russian deals. Their newest j "commodity" for economic warfare is outmoded planes, tanks., guns and ammunition. j Though the Communist countries are themselves short on oil, pe-1 troleum products from Russia and I j^omania have been offered j n' trade to Latin-American countries. Red oil deliveries, however, have not been up to promises, "according to reports received here. Where absolutely necessary, the Russians will pay cash. In recent months the Soviet l"n-j ion has begun to sell gold again, i Vice Adm. "Walter S. DeLany, dep-| utv director of the International i Cooperation Administration in charge of mutual defense assistance control, has just disclosed this development in testimony before the Joint Congressional Subcommittee on foreign economic policy. There are two examples of Soviet strategic cash buying in this country. The first Russian farm mission 1 bought Santa Gertrudis cattle in Texas to build up their livestock herds. The second Russian farm mission, nov awaiting clearance to come to the U.S., wants to buy hybrid seed corn and farm machinery. Today's volume of Communist bloc-free world trade is noMarge according to the latest breakdown by Admiral DeLany. For the year ending June 30, 1955, it totaled 3.75 billion dollars. This is only a little over 1 per cent of the 158 billion dollar volume of international trade among the free world countries for the same period. While free world trade has risen from 41 billion dollars in 1938 to 158 billions in 1955. trade with the Reds is still the same. Because this east-west trade volume is small, a few officials in Washington believe it is unimportant. The prevailing opinion, however, is that all Communist trade is aimed at a strategic build-up. Any new increase in this trade is therefore important to watch. frsAine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD By ER5K1NE JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) — YOU never heard about the time Jimmy Durante went to court for wrecking three microphones at a benefit performance? Well, ti's time you did. Funniest courtroom scene in U.S. judicial history. Durante couldn't lose! The judge was dealing from a marked deck. Schnozsle has chopped up some expensive pianos and other things in his long career of saying, "Let's wreck da joint," but The Case 01 the Three Busted Mikes is his favorite story of mp«vhem. It happened back in 1932 when Jimmy was starring on Broadway fn "Strike Me Pink." He was asked to appear at a Christmas benefit sponsored by a club composed almost entirely of New York juflges and attorneys. As Jimmy telLs it : "It's in this rented auditorium and a comic named Jack White is de master of ceremonies. I ask him to introduce me quick and let me do my act because I gotta go to Jersey for another benefit. "Instead White introduces Joe ( Frisco and they start clowning itf up while I'm burning in the wings, j So I get tired of waiting for thftj bums and I go out and break into their act. "Well, Durante, White and Fris I co are the three maddest guys in show business. White's yrabbin' for the mikes, Frisco's grabbin' | and I'm grabbin' and then we're! all grabbin* and it turns out to be \ a rather large riot. When all them mikes is busted I get off and go to Jersey, But I don't know nuttin' about any busted mikes. "The next day the owners of | the auditorium, who also own the mikes, are suing ME for breaking 'em. Not White or Frisco., the BUMS, they are just suin' ME— for S-150 damages. I'm burnin' when the president of this club composed of judges and lawyers phones me to keep my mouth shut and everything will be all right. "So I keep my mouth shut and! I get to court with a club member! who is a lawyer and on the way] he teils me not to worry because! the judge Is a member of the I club, too, and that he enjoyed my crooning; that night. MY CROON- IN'—Well, that is the story. "The attorney for them busted mikes gets up and tells the judge about how I wrecked this joint and then the judge wants to hear my story. I go to the witness stand and,the judge starts movm* everything off his bench but at the same time he Rives me a wink which me makes .sure the attorney for them mikes does not see. "First I tell the judjre I'm m peace lovin' man. Then I tell him what happened. "I tell huii my manager is watching the trend of the times and the trend thai year is toward the crooner. 'Don't be old-fashioned. Jimmy,' my manager tells me. 'If the trend of the times is toward the crooner let Jimmy Durante become a crooner, too!" "Well. I tell the judge I took my manager's advice and I start crooning at the benefit. I'm croon- in' like" Crosby and now they say I busted them three mikes." "So the judge says he thinks I should croon for the court the way I did at the benefit. So I start croonin' 'Inka Dinka Do' for the judfre in a low, sexy voice which the people in the back of the court have to strain their ears to hear. "When the judge hears my croonin' which is the new trend of the times, he smiles and says. •Case dismissed!' Then he bawls out the .attorney for the thi^e mikes saying: 'How could a man croonin' bust three microphones?' So I say, 'Thank you, judge,' and feeling sorry for the attorney for the three busted mikes, i slip him 520 on my way out of the courtroom as a free man." 75 Year* Ago In B/ythevi//e the Doctor Says — By EDWIN P.
