By Bob Brown United Press Staff Correspondent . LITTLE ROCK. Ark., Jan. 6. (UP) — The State Department's policy of firmness and justice toward Soviet Russia probably will receive the unqualified support of the Arkansas delegation during th: second resslon ol the 80th' Congress which opened in Washington today. 'There can be no appeasement, liolicy," said Ben. John L. McClel- !an before he left Little Rock for the capital. "Coi/grcss must enact a law authorizing the European aid progra .1 and continue a firm policy Ui dealing with Russia," he said. "We must let her know that we intend to protect the investment we are making in Europe's recovery. Russia is playing for keeps. We cannot do less." Reps. Brooks Hays of Little Rock and Oren Harris of El Dorado joined McClellan in favoring aid to Europe and firmness with Russia as a means of combating Communism. Strive for Justice Abroad ^ "We should continue lo aid | Greece and Turkey and increase our occupation forces in Germany, Austria mid Trieste until settlements have been reached," Harris declared. ''We should increase our air forces In areas and continue our firm and tough but just policy with Russia. Thc alternative is another devastating war ultimately." Both McClellan and Harris hailed formation of a third party by formei Vice President Henry Wallace as a separation ol the "sheep from the goats.'* McClellan and Hays minimize effects of the new party, but Harr believes the third party will ha? a defenite effect on the presiclen ial election. "A few votes in three or lou key states could very well tip tl scales," Harris said. He added, however, that Wallac would help bring out a big popula vote which would overcome ballol lost to the third party. McClcllan said that "all Com munl.sts and a very few other well intending but misguided voters wi support Wallace." "But," he added, "I think his to tat vote will thoroughly dcmonsLrai thai there are very few people I his nation who think more o! Rus sia and Communism Ihan they (I of America and democracy." Wallace for Appeasement Harris predicted that appcasi ment toward Russia will be a lead Ing plank in Wallace's bid for th highest office in the land. And 1 listed the differences of opinion < the administration of foreign a as a top issue in the Rcpublicai Democratic battle. Hays agreed that the Marsha plan could become a Democrat pl&nk, but he believes foreign will be set up on a bi-partisan basl "If price relationships are not corrected." Hays declared, "the Democrats will make that an Issue, and the Republicans probably will emphasize free enterprise." McClellan listed Inflation, foreign policy and economy in government as likely presidential Issues.
