BlytheviHe's Light Vote Is Somewhat Disappointing Those interested in Tuesday's election in which voters turner) down the proposition to buy Rlvtheville Writer Company are still shaking their heads. They just can't believe that, with Elytheville facing one of its most critical decisions, only 1,254 cast votes. Some 5,000 hold poll tax receipts. Therefore, we feel that the election served very little the purpose for which it was intended: to give the Council a clear mandate from the people to buy or not to buy the Water Company. Most Councilman h a v e indicated they will follow the results of the election, however. And they probably will . . . even though they must he somewhat disappointed in the light vote. Mayor Dan Blodgett, however, put the crux of the situation very well when he pointed out that "it is urgent that no time be lost in agreeing on a sewer system development plan." That means the Mayor, Councilmen and those who have ideas concerning the sewer system will have to get to work on a new tack. judge the nature »nd extent of the Communist threat within our borders. They would be clear on one important fundamental which now is clouded in confusion. That is that the spy and the policy-influencer are seldom — if ever — the same. All the things which a man has to do to influence policy, openly advocating pro-Soviet views, sabotaging American attitudes, nrp calculated lo arouse suspicion of him. The good spy is in the business of not arousing suspicion. Klaus Fuchs is a perfect example. He was a Communist, with definite convictions. Ai first, he kept the fact quiet in his adopted Britain because he saw it as a handicap to his developing career as a scientist. But once he began spying for Russia, he had a hotter reason. Kuchs became almost a mode] for a scientist working on a secret wartime project. He not, only did nothing to stir suspicion. He aligned himself—not to ostentatiously — with those who were "tnugii about security." lie usually spoke against releasing classified information to the public. This pose helped make him a perfect "sleeper" — a spy whose habits are so circumspect that he virtually never draws attention. A spy net functions best with a host of sleepers. Alger Hiss was one. That's why character testimonials in the Hiss trial and similar proceedings are really beside the point. Of course the spy can produce men to attest to his character. He would not he. B spy if he could not. If he went around arousing e,veryborly t 's suspicion, spouting Soviet propaganda and the like, his usefulness to a potential enemy would be zero. The policy-influencer has his role, too, but it is a distinct one. Those who eee the two roles as interchangeable are simply ill-informed about Communist methods. They need to read the five- font shelf of documentary materials. They do not know the enemy—or where he might be found. Views of Others The Merit System Mokes Headway Americans Need to Be Alert To Methods of Reds in U.S. Enterprising groups interested in keeping America alert to danger might do the country a service by preparing a sort of five-font shelf of books and other materials which expose how Communists really operate. There has been an extraordinary growth in the last year or so in the documentary evidences of Communist activity. Fortunately a high proportion of it appears wholly reliable. Some prime examples are \Vhi1ta- ker Chambers' autobiography. "Witness," Herbert F'hilhrick'? story of his double life as Communist Party member and KB1 agent, and the current series in the Saturday Evening Post on the espionage activities of Klaus Fuchs. German-born British atomic scientist who gave the Russians the atom bomb. No catalog of first-rate materials in this fir-Id would he quite complete without a copy of the new American film, "Walk East on Reacon," which presents in an unadorned, straightforward manner not only Communist methods but KRI techniques in tracking down Red spies in an actual case. If thinking Americans could lake advantage of all these materials, they would be in a far better position to Still Capable of Dealing a Knockout Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — fN^A) — It'* i as a TV .terta ...
