Churchill and Smuts The cas« of Jan Christian Smuts In South Africa resembles that of Winston Churchill in the United Kingdom. Both •talesmen won and deserved world fame for'their contributions to the defeat of nazism, and both have now been removed from their hitfh office by the will of their countrymen. But here is an importnnl difference. Mr. Churchill'* political downfall obviously resulted from the conservatism of his domestic policies. Marshal Smuts lost out because his domestic policies are, by his opponents' standards, too radical. Yet Mr. Churchill's voice has not been silenced or his influence de- btroyed by political defeat. And we hope that the aging Marshal Smuts may continue to combat the program of isolation and segregation, s?o out of key with progressive thought, which at present is Ills nation's choice. Critics of the Mundt Bill Aren't Crackpots, Commies Nobody could blame the Senate Judiciary Committee for seeing reel after the raucous, disgusting Red-front protest against the Mundt-Nixon Bill to control communism. The well-organized demonstration by Communists, crypto- Communists, union and "liberal" representatives was of :i sort that might drive the Senate to speedy passage of the bill through irritation. It is hard to bnlieve that the n\emon- itration's ringleaders are so stupid as to believe that thnir tactics could defeat the bill. They know the temper of the times and of the present Congress. And they also must know that their behavior is enough to make the most patient and- sympathetic champion of civil liberties want to stand up and yell, "Aw, shut up!" So it may be that the loud-mouth leftists really -want to see the Mundt- Nixon Bill passed—and quickly. Thus they may hops to have more ammunition to pour at Congress. At any rate we think Senator Ferguson acted wisely in adjournihg the committee hearings on the Communist-control bill indefinitely. There is a lot of "mW legislation before Congress, but we hardly think the Mundt-Nixon measure fit in the emergency category. It should be all to .the good if, when the bill comes before the Senate, the hysterical chorus that parroted Communist William Z. Foster's testimony can be considered in its proper perspective. For the Senate will do well to remember that the leftists are not the only ones who are against this bill in its present form. There are several who have spoken up against it who cannot be suspected of Kremlin connections—a representative of a Quaker organization, among others. And Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, certainly far to the right of left, sees in the bill a p-.ssibility that it might outlaw free thought without outlawing communism. In the Dewey-Stassen debate in Oregon, tha governor argued that the bill would not outlaw communism, while Mr. Stassen held that it would. When two men as intelligent as these cannot agree on the basic/ intent of a proposed law which they have studied carefully, it is safe to assume that there Is something fuzzy or ambiguous about tht measure as it now stands. Any law should be put to the test of whether it is proof against unjust use in the hands of the worst possible administrators it might encounter. If the two good legal minds of Mr. Stassen and 'Mr. Dewey can't understand this proposed ]*w or what it i« supposed to do, it do«sn't seem «afe to put it on the book* •without consider»bl« revision. So now that the tumult has died down, perhapt the Judiciary Committee Traveling Salesman VIEWS OF OTHERS ERP: Freedom of Choice Henry L. Stlnison some Umc ago wrote in Foreign Affairs that as Americans take part In the rebuilding of Europe they "must remember that we ar« building world peace, not an American peace. Freedom demands tolerance, and many Americans have much to learn about tha variety of forms which free societies may take . . ." Americans may well remember also that American flninclal power Is so great today that peoples compiled to rely on that power are especially susceptible to suggestions that it is being misused to affect their political and social life— to Invade their national sovereignty, and to Impose "an American peace" on the world. The Communists count heavily on this suggestibility. They seb/e uleefully^on anything that can be Interuretcd or misinterpreted to create an impression of dollar imperialism. This Is one line of their attack on the Marshall Plan. FYars of American pressures are again being fanned in Europe. Americans can understand these by noting four specific areas of European activity which seem to some Europeans to b« under pressure. One of these 1» nationalisation of industry. Another is East-West trade. A third It currency valuation. A fourth Is the sterling areas—marts up of countries which have tied their currencies to the British pound. The Administration has gone to some pain* to make It clear that it does not propose to make Marshull Plan aid contingent on Europe's rejection of socialism. It has recognized, indeed emphasized, the need of developing trade between western Europe and countries In the Russian orbit. On currency Valuation and the sterling area its attitude Is less clear. Demands by the United States for currency devaluation are authoritatively forecast for countries whose exports show « fall- Ing off because of Inllaled currencies. But negotiations toward devaluation would be entrusted lo the International Monetary Fund. The United States roving ambassador for the Marshall Plan, Mr. Avereli W. Havriman. may find It necessary to rtassuie Europeans over and over again that the United States does net Intern! to impose the wlshca of any section of Us population on European countries. Mr. Harrlmnn, however, admitted In a London press conference recently that thought was being given lo the Stirling area by Washington, without being able to say where it was leading He also noted, while denying American Intention lo Intervene in British domestic affairs, that Americans did not have great confidence In socialization. Carefully t:'!ardcd as these statement* may have been, they are followed by reports of new alarms In Britain and on the Continent. What needs to be kept very clear hi the United States, as it ts in Europe, is that the dollar sign alone might prove an inadequate symbol for the rallying o! free forces In the West. Certainly, the task of beating Communists In elections will be made more difficult if the Communists are given a chance to exploit national pride, the desire for self-determination, ami ihc notion that undllutcu American "capitalism." which Europe believes un- suitcd to Its needs, is going to take over the entire West. What the United Su'.es is aiming at In the Marshall Planning I, • revision foi free choices by the peoples of Europe octween democracy and Communism, not the substitution merely of American Influence for Russian Influence. .Tile emphasis must be kept on the freedom of choice. -CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.
