PACK 2—NAUGATITCK NEWS (CONN.), SATURDAY, NOV. J2, I1MO DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: American Arms, Without American Friendship, Won't Help Europe; Restlessness Of Soviet Satellite Countries Is Mos* Encouraging Sign On Horizon; Many Americans Work Hard To Assure Peace. En route through Midwest.—On Armistice Day at Hays, Kansas, yesterday, I relaxed from the alleged crouching position under the cabinet table tjo - te'/i something about the people-to-people friendship. I hope tolerant editors will forgive me if I devote a second column to the manner in which the American !p«ople. with no prompting and little encouragement from their government, have become, in effect, their own ambassadors. What our diplomats and our forts toward peace don't. Sometimes they don't ev% make the inside pages or the big newspapers. Nevertheless when the Junior Chamber of Commerce at Charleston, W. Va., adopts a plan to bring 20 European young men to - West Virginia for one year of employment and study, it's news— important news. It's also news when the national headquarters of the Junior Chamber writes the State Department proposing that it finance the trip »viteit ULU^ uijjiuujctts Hnu our f* Lfi^waiiig L.UCIL it unancc me trip military don't seem fully to real- j of 100 young Russians to study in ize are the following fundamental the United States truths about human nature: YOU CAN PUT AL LTHE ARMS IX THE WORLD IN EUROPEANS' HANDS, BUT THAT DOESN'T NECESSARILY MAKE 'EM FIGH. YOU CAN SEND FOOD AND MARSHALL PLAN MONEY TO ATLANTIC PACT NATIONS, BUT THEY DONT PARTICULARLY APPRECIATE IT IF IT LACKS THE HUMAN TOUCH. We can keep on building A- bombs and 70 air groups and even giant airplane carriers until our pockets are empty and the American people are bled white. BUT THIS WON'T PREVENT WAR UNLESS THE PEOPLE OF EUROPE—especially tfcose be- hindthe iron curtain—ARE SO FRIENDLY TOWARD THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT THEY OPPOSE WAR. Now in this columnist's humble opinion, the most optimistic developments in the world today are, first, the fact that certain of the iron curtain countries—Poland, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia- are now restless and leaning more toward the United States. And second is the -fact that the American people, tired and discouraged as some of them may be, are still working at wooing friends on a <peopletc-people basis.

It might be misinterpreted as (pro-communist by some people. But the young businessmen who later will be helping to run this country have enough confidence in their country to know that once you get a group of young Russians over here—even though communists— < they're pretty sure to understand the American people and like them, and if you could get enough young Russians here on regular visits, it would eventually make a real dent in the iron curtain. The State Dejpartme-nt, replying to the Junior Chamber, as usual was evasive. But meanwhile the Junior Chamber of Commerce of Texas has launched a plan called "Jaycee Universal Understanding" under which, for example, A<mar- illo, Texas, is cooperating with Salzburg, Austria, first by correspondence, later by financing the trip of a Salzburg citizen to Amarillo where they can swap- ideas with him and discuss problems firsthand. LaborLeaders Help This udgre for more contact between (peoples isn't confined to litUe business or to educational groups. It exists also among big business and labor unions. The Amalgamated Clothing Workers has established a factory in Italy to demonstrate American mechanized methods to Italian workers. Irving Brown, of A. F. of L. 'representative in Brussels, has done iru%-e than many American ambassadors to give European labor Democracy. And Henry Ford, with leaders a true picture of American no commercial advertising for his cars, is helping the American public to understand the United Nations by televising U .N. sessions every day. Again, American Airlines selected 30 key newspapermen from key European countries, even including iron curtain Finland, and took them on a complete tour of the U. S. A., all expenses paid. U. S. mayors, governors, and cabinet me|v bers were delighted to cooperate. But when it came to the State Department, Stanlev Woodward, a stickler for protocol, refused to let them, see President Truman. Finally wiser head Michael McDermott of- the State Department prevailed, and the European editors did see Truman. As a result of American Airlines' thoughtful patriotism, this group will correctly interpret the U. S. A. to the Eurcfpean press for years to come. U. S.

Wins Contest On Air Travel; Never Aloft Eairt Hartford, Nov. 12—(UP) — A young research engineer at Pratt >i.nd Whitney Aircraft was announced as the winner of the 1949 -essay contest of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. George Lewis' prize-winning pa- ocr was entitled, "Some Natural Limitations on Space Travel." He wrote it from a strictly earthbound view, since he's never been aloft— not even in an airplane, much less a rocket ship. Lewis says that when he goes ':o New'York Nov. 30 to receive the award, he'll travel in what he describes as "a squarc-fendorcd 1935 Chevy that gets fidgety doing over 50."
