I»ACE 2— NAKGATPCK NEWS (CONN.), FB1DAY. OCT. 28, 1940 DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: U. S. Diplomats Convinced That Stalin Plans Showdown With Tito; Mayor O'Dwyer And Miss Simpson; Furore In The Caribbean Adds To Navy's Headaches. Washington — U. S. diplomats I from the Iron- Curtain countries meeting in London this week hac before them conclusive evidence that Stalin now plans a showdown with Tito. The showdown will be undertaken, as far as possible with out leading to war, but if -war is necessary the Kremlin apparently has decided to risk it. Here are the factors which led American clusion: diplomats to this con- 1. Tito's nose-thumbing at the Kremlin has become contagious Other satellite countries are figuring that if Yugoslavia can get away with it, they can too. Tito, once trained as an NKVD agent, has sent his'own agents out to work against Moscow in Hungary Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Rouma- Dia. 2. The end of the Grek civil war was not because the guerrillas were defeated, but to rest them for an attack on Tito. Seven thousand Greek guerrillas already have been transferred to Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia to get re-«quipped. 3. A brigade of the east German people's police has been sent from Berlin to Bulgaria. They were previously trained in Yugoslavia during the German occupation, know tow to fight Tito. 4. One attack on Tito has already taken place, though no news was published in the Yugoslav papers The U. S. embassy reported that Russian guerrillas crossed from Hungary, fired a few shots and then retreated. Tito hushed it up to keep from alarming his people. Will USA Fight? What the Kremlin is banking on is the belief that the United.States is not ready to risk war, will not intervene to help Tito. This is based partly on U. S. isolationism, partly from Moscow's plan to disguise the Tito attack as an internal revolt. Thus the main problem confronting American diplomats has become: how to head off war by telling the Kremlin we would fight— though the final decision actually lies with Congress. History shows that Hitler never would have invaded the) Ruhr if ne thought the French would have fought. He guessed right. France wouldn't fight at that time. Again Hitler figured that the western allies would not fight if he invaded Austria, then Czechoslovakia. Again he guessed right. They didn't fight. By that time Hitler was getting brash and bloodthirsty. Perhaps he might not have invaded Poland if he had thought the-British would fight. In any event, he guessed wrong, and World War n began. The situation may be the same regarding Yugoslavia. Its invasion may be a steppingstone to Greece Turkey. Suez, Africa, India. We may not fight at first, but eventually we will. So the State Department figures it is better to be firm at first and let the Kremlin know exactly where we stand. That is what <Vm- *rican diplomats faced this week in London.

It uses ultra violet light to permit cancerous tissue to be seen and photographed with in. creased clarity. The new microscope will be a big help to cancer research workers. (.International) that he has decided, to ask the recall of Adm. Dan Barbey, commander of the Caribbean sea frontier. What happened was that the U. S. A., while preaching democracy for France, Italy and the North Atlantic pact countries, let the Navy play footsie with one of the bloodiest dictators .in all Latin America— President Trujillo of the Dominican Republic. Just as Adm. Richard Conolly got some U. S. diplomats sore by making a special courtesy cruise to visit dictator Franco in Spain, so Admiral Barbey made a special courtesy call on Trujillo. Furthermore, he did so after Governor Munoz Marin had strongly advised against it.
