WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Is Russia Taking Advantage Of US Sweat-it-Out Policy? By JAMES MAKLOW Associated Press New* Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Any time in recent years this country probably could have crushed Russia in a preventive war intended to destroy the Communists before they were strong enough to attack the United States. That the war wasn't made, while this country had atomic superiority, was evidence that the United States intended to try to sweat it out with the Russians in the hope war might never be necessary. This may have been a fatal policy and In the end prove the undoing of the United States. No one can be sure the Russians, once they're sufficiently armed, won't make a sudden overpowering attack on this country. Sir Winston Churchill yesterday, while saying the United States holds vast superiority over Russia in hydrogen bombs right now. predicted Russia may have enough of them in two to four years to try an attack on North America. Obvious Iiicalcuable The sweating - it - out. policy is therefore one of the obvious incal- culables of history. So were some recent major decisions whose outcome, couldn't be predicted either'. defense of Korea, Berlin airlift, aid to Greece and Turkey. There are alternative hopes to set beside the dismal prospect the Russians may spring on the United States when they are able: 1. That the Russian leadership may be civilized enough not to make war or force one. 2. That the two giants, once they're fairly equal in their ability to annihilate each other— perhaps both at the same time — and most of mankind too, will then be content not to' fight but live side by side. Churchill expressed some belief in hope No. 2, but not too vigorously, when he said: 'A curious paradox has emerged. After a certain point has been passed it may be said that the worse things get, the better." Didn't Predict Winner Churchill did say he didn't think the Russians could win a hydrogen war if they started one— but he didn't predict any winner In such a struggle— since the West, because of its head start on bombs, could retaliate from bases around the world. But even if they were afraid to start a hydrogen war, for fear of what might happen to them In return, the Russians might trade on the whole world's fear of such a war. They might do It by trying to pressure their neighbors into submission since the West would have to be careful about staKlng any defensive action which might lead to hydrogen war. Any one of these possibilities is a guess but thp Western statesmen, including Churchill, are -in exactly the same position as any man In the street: they can only wonder what Russia will do when she has the power and meantime stay prepared. But Churchill's statements about Russia's present inferiority In hydrogen weapons goes far to explain why the Communists have been OSCEOLA NEWS By Bettye Nelle Slarr Mr. and Mrs. Bill Beall and three small sons, Bill, Jr., Phil and Charley, are leaving tomorrow for Jonesboro where they will make their home.
