Stalin- Wall ace Prescription Offers No New Remedies Premier Stalin has added his personal influence to that of his American Communist Party in support of Henry A. Wallace. At least that seems the most logical explanation for his announcement that he is willing to talk over in- tsrnational differences along the linos laid 'down by a candidate who is still a private citizen totally unconnected with this government. But before Mr. Wallace gets too choked up with emotion and humbleness over his solution of the crisis, he might remember that many of the remedies in his prescription for curing the cold war have already been tried. Mr. Wallace calls -for general reduction of armament ami the outlawing of all methods of muss destruction. That is an excellent suggestion, but not an original one. It is contained in the United Nations Charter. Air. Wallace should know why the efforts to carry it out have failed. If he doesn't, he might • read the recent report of the UN Atomic Energy Commission. Mr. Wallace urges a speedy peace with Germany and Japan. He might recall that the victorious powers have tried to draft peace treaties for Austria and Germany and have got nowhere, largely because of Russian reparation demands. Russia clings to a plan for Germany whereby the United States would, in e f- ftc , be paying reparations, by pouring millions m goods and money- into the western zone, while Russia took out mil- I'o.ns in German production from the east. When these difficulties are settled lln wT^ 11 gDvernme "t.

One, important r«Mon why UNRRA WM not renewed w«» the Communist inai»t«nce on handling relief mpplies in the countries under Red control ^nd using them for political purposes. Examination of Mr. Wallace's other recommendation* would show that most of them had aUo been tried. This is not to say that they are not good recommendations, or that some past efforts to fulfill them have not been marred by bad judgment. But Mr. Wallace seems trying to give the impression that he has had a revelation qf the way to enduring peace. And Mr. Stalin has played up to him by implying that he never heard such good suggestions before. When one thinks how Moscow has treated the same proposals in the past, Me. Stalin's concila- tory reply, to tile Wallace program sounds doubly cynical. (ARK.)' COCTTCT VIEWS OF OTHERS Resuming the Offensive The State Department has our sympathy. It has been taking a terrific beating over the "peace talks" Incident. Mr. MolotoVs trlcK rendered American diplomacy vulnerable to the fears of allies, the suspicions o( the' uninformed, and the sharp questioning of the Informed, at home and abroad. Worst of all, It has put the Stale Department on the defensive before the world's hunger /or peace. w We believe II Is unnecessary for American policy to remain In this position. It can and should regain the offensive—not. merely against, the expansion of tyranny.'but against the pressures making for war. The United States cannot safely continue In retreat before n Russian offer to discuss peace—whatever the motive of that offer. To remain In that position will weaken the American case In every portion of the globe where, war-weary people are weighing the revival claims ol Communism and democracy. To remain In that position weakens the bipartisan foreign opl- Icy. opening It to political attacks which In thU election year could become doubly dangerous. In fairness to the diplomats, the public should not assume that" "peace talks" would necessarily mean peace. Democratic, statesmen are bitterly disillusioned by the results of all the postwar conference;, What positive action .Is open to America? At his press conference Secretary Marshall was asked if the United states would,-In consultation with the other great powers, join in discussions with the soviet provider! Mcsscoy.'came forward in a spirit of compromise .'-He said,-"Yes, of course, assuming that specific.' proposals were Involved and not general discussions." Why not turn this .position into atfirmaUve action? Why not ask the Kremlin if it has any specific proposals? . * There is reason to believe that Britain, Prance and the United States are convinced any genera! discussions with Russia will be more effective a year from now-after the West's economic and military position has been improved. By the same token, Ijiusla would reason that the sooner a diplomatic showdown can be arranged the better. And it may fea r partial settlements—where it would have little hope ol trading a concession in one area for an advantage In another. If this is . the situation, we may expect Russia to come back with further proposals for an over-all settlement. How will American diplomacy deal with such bids? They will !ook very attractive Co ordinary peace-hungry people, v.'ho love the word agreement and do not always look too carefully at the price of the prospects of fulfillment. If Moscow convinced that there is no'more profit In the cold war. should open up lull Wast with a peace offensive, what answer will, democratic statesmen make? Tho united States surely will not enter into a dea] to split the world with Russia. Washington fears any sphcres-of-influcnce showdown, it does not want to clai m „ sphere of Influence in the domains of Independent and.proud friends BUI It ciaes not want to be pushed out of Western Europe or eastern Asia. sc me realistic observers be- hove one o, the best hopes of easing Russian- Amencsn friction „ to |i mit the sphcrcj fluence of bo.h-wi.h as much distance „ poMlb!c between.

PA'« tr« | • couple of lost words that ought to Congress, Fear ing Loss of Farmers Votes, Stalls Attack on High Living Costs, and Cause of Strikes By Peler Edson NEA Correspondent WASHINGTON —(NEA) tough labor situation that The moit cynics have been predicting for the past year has now arrived. Strikes and violence ali over the place. A few major tie-ups avoided by the skin of your teeth. More tr*ub:e ahead. , Trying to blame all this on the lew Taft-Hartley labor law is nonsense. The unions would no doubt Ike to take their revenge on someone for the passage of Ihis act, but here are no strikes against the law itself. At the same tune, it should -- - _ . oe clear that the Taft-Hartley law I °° tne y further minimize the jm- hasn't brought the millennium of P°>ta»ce of the farm vote. This farm " ' vote "S still important to congressmen _ who coma from strictly "rural candidates had to bow low to get the farm vote. Even up to 1SI20 when it was Warren G. Harding who ran, more than half the American people lived on farms. Bui in 1948 all this has changed. By today's estimates, U. S. popu- .ation over 21 years of a»e i s divided roughly 50.000.000 ill cities, 16.OCO.OOo in small towns classified as rural non-farm, and only 14 000 000 rural. This accounts for a possible SO.OOO.COO voters. There is a catch in that the poll tax states still bar much of their population from voting. But these states are still largely .agricultural. labor peace. The primary issue in today's trouble seems to be a demand for wage increases or improved working conditions are secondary. So if anything can be ~donp to "remove the cause of the present labor unre.;t, tightening up on the labor laws might well be delayed till something is done about bringing down the cost of living. Farm Vote Myth Stalls Congress On this the Congress has been iomewhat backward. The excuse .{iven is of course that this if. an election year .and nothing should be done to upset the farm vote. Here you have one of the greatest myths in the whole book of political folklore. In 1893 when William McKinley was running, or in 1908 when It was William Howard Taft The two problems should no longer be considered separately. Smart farmers will admit privately that they know farm prices are now loo high. They would be satisfied with less. Expecl New Farm Statesmanship Even the ultia-c o n s e r v a 11 v e American Farm Bureau Federation leadership today recognizes that present farm price policies are courting disaster. Now that the federation has retired farm lobbyist Ed O'Neal to his cotton plantation and installed as president a progressive Iowa farmer in the person of Allan B. Kline, a new kind of farm statesmanship may be apparent, after election.
