AJJB'D Conn, Newspaper Publishers Am'n WEDNESDAY, DEC. 28, 1949 Submarine Defense The authoritative publication, Jane's Fighting Ships, reaffirms persistent and disturbing reports that Soviet Russia's naval strategy is being concentrated against the greatest -weakness of American sea power — that of defense against submarine warfare. In its 1949-50 edition, Jane's estimates that the Soviets now have 360 submarines of different types, including the swift, long- range "Schnorkels" developed by the Germans. But, more important, the~ publication passes along "with all due reserve" the information that Russia is working day and nigbt to increase the fleet of submersibles to from 750 to 1,000 by 1951. It is no assurance that Jane's qualifies this report by doubting whether Russia has either the shipyards or the technicians to complete this program on schedule. For that matter, none of our experts believed that Russia ••••ould have the atom bomb by " '.iis time. The Russian underwater threat - magnified by admissions in our ' vn naval circles that we have r. t yet developed a weapon to '- unter it effectively. What this '•• :uld mean to our surface com.-.: :nications in time of war can i. -- imagined from the experience >.: World War II, in which Hitler, with a much inferior force am! lacking the "Schnorkels," ca: le close to winning the Battle of -.he Atlantic. ?.~avy "brass" has been accused 1 "f >re this of having preoccupied ;t;<_:f with the losing fight for a rr.assive carrier program, to the iJ-j-.-iment of its underwater responsibilities. Whether this was so or not, the new chief of naval f-porations, Admiral Sherman, is .'••r-r^rted to have called for greater :-?eed in developing anti-subma: ine devices and techniques. In ihis, he and the rest of the Na-. y cannot fail to have the warmest support and confidence of .he American public. "Feace" Prizes! To faceless' Russians—that is, who say "yes" to govern- orders —the establishment of Stalin peace prizes will seem iiko a proper accompaniment of the dictator's seventieth birth<l-y celebration. But the free peo- riks of the world will see r.oth- in ; but irony in it. How can thoy possibly reconcile this as- i'. nation of peace with the name o: the man -who, more than any o:her in the world today, keeps Peace from becoming a reality? The whole affair is, of course, a typically Russian performance. It is an effort to picture the Soviet government as working diligently to prevent war. It is aimed partly at t'.nose who are already communists but, in great degree, at those in other countries who may be wavering in their loyalty to democratic institutions. The only Americans who will be fooled by this gesture are the men and women who want to be fooled — the Robesons, the Wallaces and other left-wingers. They will hail it as a sign of the Soviet's interest in peace. Less gullible Americans will suggest that Russia can best achieve its alleged aim by acting like a friend and neighbor in the council of nations. That would be less expensive and more certain to get results. But the reds, were they so minded, coulfl not essay such a role without giving up the dozen countries they have taken over. And to suggest this would be like expecting a bnrglar to return a rich haul when he is not compelled to do so. Aid To Cancer Fight A great spur to the unremitting fight against the ravages of cancer was given in the announcement recently before a gathering of 500 physicians and laymen enlisted in the struggle, of a gift of $2,000.000 by John D. Rockefeller to the cancer center at Memorial Hospital, New York. This gift, which was conditioned upon the hospital's raising a like amount, is for a dual construction and teaching program, and supplemented other gifts totaling $1,296,000. The occasion was the 10th anniversary of the great cancer center, though Memorial, subsequently a general hospital, was actually started 65 years ago as a hospital for the care of cancer patients. The program contemplates, besides extended technical facilities, a physiology laboratory, a children's wing, more operating rooms and a recovery ward. Included in the center, besides Memorial Hospital as a nucleus, are the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Institute and the Strang Clinic. There, scientific research workers are sseking means to reach cancer disseminated through the body for which surgery X-ray and radium do not suffice. By Chancellor Day of Cornell University the center was characterized as "the most important fighting force in the field against cancer." By "field" he meant the whole world. But in colleges and universities throughout the land en lowed research is going on, the fruits of which, as soon as demonstrated, will be made available to all. Do You Remember?
