PAGE 2—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.). MONIIAY, NOV. 28, 11MU - DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY--GO--ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Atom Bomb,Not Enough, Say U. S. Military Men; Russian Radar May Force Changes In American Strategy; Labor And Business Find Common Political TZrvnrJ Bond. Washington—A visiting Latin- American official, talking with General Eisenhower, made the remark: i "Why don't you Americans drop a few atom bombs on the Russians right away and get it over with?" Eisenhower wheeled on him and said: "Can you tell me where we would get the 30 million troops necessary to take and hold the Soviet Union after the bombs fell?" Ike's response is symptomatic of the growing feeling among U. S. military men that the atom bomb is not a decisive weapon in itself. Russians' New Radar Screen President Truman has just received a vitally importatn report on the subject of Russia's antiaircraft j defenses — particularly her radar network, which has contributed _to military skepticism about dropping the atom bomb. This report, carefully compiled from sources inside the Soviet, reveals that the Russians have a fir-st-rate radar warning system encircling all but a small portion of the Soviet Union. In addition to this outer protective screen, they have also oonstructe'd an inner circle of radar defenses. This report contradicts an earlier belief that the Russians had no radar net to speak of. The report may also alter the entire American strategic war plans. Until now, the joint chiefs of staff have relied heavily on the ability of ihe B-36 to penetrate deep into Russia before being detected. Flying at great speed and high altitude, the Air Force believed it could deliver the atom bomb in quantity,, well before the Reds could muster an effective fighter defense. The presence of these hitherto undisclosed radar screens, therefore, will call for a. thorough revamping of American strategic concepts. Note: The Siberian border is the one Russian area thus far not equipped with long-range radar stations. But the Russians, believ- Baruch Honored NOTED statesman Bernard Baruch receives an honorary Cum Laude from Wilson Parkhill, headmaster of Collegiate SchooJ for Boys in New York, the oldest school of its type in the United States. The award, presented on the institution's 311th anniversary, was given for Baruch's "outstanding achievement in teaching the implications of the atom bomb."

ADMIRAL DENFELD WAVEKS —Admiral Denfeld came back to the Pentagon for a few hours recently, called on Secretary of the Navy Matthews and the new chiuf of naval operations, Admiral Sherman. Bqth urged him to stay in the Navy and take a four-star assign- Condemns Move To Recognize Chinese Communist Gov't. Thi-'i'o i:i evidently n concerted movement a.foot to obtain Immediate recognition of this Communist government of China by the United States. Day-to-day pressures indicate that one group in our State Department seeks such, action regardless of the consequences. The international el'fect of the recognition, at this lime, would be tremendous, and would arant prestige and rank to the Chinese Communists to which they are not entitled. A prerequisite of diplomatic recognition by the United States should be" "evidence ot good faith" on the part of the "government" to bo recognized. Such action on our part would indicate that we approve of government created by violence and revolution. Those currently holding power in China arc totally irresponsible as indicated by their treatment of the American Consul, Angus Ward. His unwarranted seizure is deserving of the prroalest condemnation, as it in violation of all existing diplomatic procedures. There can be no "good faith." on the purl of it-.n the Communists' until it. ha.s been demonstrated that, the action:; of thin "government" are nut dictated by IL foreign power, thp Soviet Union. Cliques which resort to bullets rather than ballots for their power make increasingly more difficult the task of rebuilding- a. peaceful world. The billions of dollars* of American taxpayer's money now being spent on foreign rehabilitation will veritably be '"poured into ratholes" if our government is pushed 1 into a hasty decision of this type by those in our State Department who disapprove of the Nationalist regime which formerly ruled in China. We have a history of long-time friendship for the Chinese people, and recognition of the Communists, at this time, would he repu- dia.tion of our fraternal interest in their well-being.

Capital News Capsules TWO TRILLION DOLLAR IX- COME—America's national income of S262 billions annually is by far tl'-c highest in the history of the v.-r :-ld. But it looked like small pc- tn-.oes the other day, when a top government economist peered into tl-je future. This economist, one of President Truman's council of economic advisers, estimated that if the United States national income increases in the next 50 years as fast as it did between the 1870's ivnd 1920's, the U. S. will have an annual income of two trillion dollars by '.he end of this century. NOTE TO HOUSEWIVES — Look for an increase in the r>ric;2 uf porkr, which has dropped sharply KJ the last three months. One reason for the probable price increase is the return to work of striking steel and coal workers, which will increase the demand for pork. As a result the Department of Agricu.- tjre has abandoned plans to support hog prices—at least for this year. , DOUGHBOYS AGAIN — Tr"> joint chiefs of staff have completely revised their defense strategy lor defending Western Europe as a result of Russia's atomic-bomb ex- piosion.

WHY THEY SAY: ''We'd Never be Wifhoul Father John's Medicine" In many homes Father John's Medicine is always on hand—because its use has become B habit from one gen- eralion to another. Today mothers are giving it to their children because their mothers gave it to them when they were young. This unusual family confidence is the result of proven merit. Try .,- . it for yourself. It has been used by millions for over 90 years. James Zonino Host To Consultant In Career Conference Oburlln, Ohio, Nov. 8—Jumen D.
