So unles* the classic palter/i has changed, Mr. Wallace will find himself in a spot before November, Hither he can disavow the Communists and alter his own position accordingly. Or he can string along with them and lose the support of those sincere followers who may not fear a Red revolution, but who do resent the agents of a. foreign power making suckers of them. VIEWS OF OTHERS Let's Do the Whole Job Russia's Andrei Gromyko l)»s lold the UN Atomic Energy Commission again that his government will not accept any international control agency until America's stockpile ol atomic bombs has been destroyed. It is nearly 30 months since the world learned about the atomic bomb. Other governments have certainly •ought to duplicate it. Some may have •ucceeded. Will Mr. Gromyko's government agree to international inspection, juit in cas« America's stockpile isn't th« only one to b« destroyed? Communist Support Means Bad Company for Wallace Henry Wallace is presenting himself to the country as a sort of spiritual reincarnation of Franklin D. Roosevelt. But he cannot bring himself to repudiate Communist supiwrt, as the late President did: On this point, in fact, he stands in direct opposition'' to Mr. Roogevelt'§ views. Mr. Wallace says he has seen no evidence to support the charge that Communists advocate the violent overthrow of our government. In view of the Communist literature available and the past ^utterances of American Com-, m'unistsy'it must be that Mr. Wallace chooseg' to shut his eyes to the evi- uencs. ' This aspect; of the Wallace-Communist association may not seem too important. America appears no closer to a Communist-led revolution today limn Mr. Wallace doeg to the presidency. But Mr. Wallace is shutting his eyes to more than the evidence of the world- revolution goal which Communists have been working toward since Karl Marx pointed it out-a hundred years ago. •If Mr. Wallace's public statements 'represent his true feelings, he is also shutting his eyes to the fate of most innocents who submit to the Communist embrace*. "Any Communists who support the independent ticket," be says, "will b e supporting our program, not the Communist program." That is a remarkably guileless statement from a man who ha s been in national politics for the last 15 years. The third party candidate may dismiss the Frankenstein story as a fable. But can ne dismiss the experiences of some of his contemporaries — Sidney Hillman and John L. Lewis, for instance? Mr. Hillman was instrumental j n forming the American Labor Party in New York State. It started out as genuinely American and genuinely liberal. But the Communists, who had officially "disbanded" their own political parly for the duration, moved in on the ALP. They took over so completely that the non-Communist members had to pull out and form a new tion, the Liberal Party ' UN—Let's Stop Fooling HOB' KPBlc can the United Nations get?

The valiant tribesmen are on the warpath against India, and now proclaim that UN will l>e wasting Its breath If it makes a decision favoring India in Kashmir, In cllcct the Afririi itare the United Nations to put them out o[ Kashmir. At (he same time UN Is challenged by the Arab league. The League—really a committee which has only such power «s the Aral) slates choose to give It—announces tint Arab forces will occupy all of Palestine ai soon as the British leave and adds that, any attempt, to .send an international police force there lo carry out UN's partition plan will he considered an "unfriendly act." Meanwhile slrilc in Palestine lias mounted Into virtual civil war. Bo the United Nations has come to this—it can' be flouted and defied by anybody! Let us make our purpose clear. This newspaper does not scoff at the United Nations, We simply call attention to a situation which Invites not merely scoffs but utter laivlea-«iois. We want lo end the scoffing and the lawlessness. Today UN Is told In effect, -Put (ip, or sluit up." We want lo give It power lo put up, so It will not have to shut up. War-weary people all over the world hoped the United Nations would give them an Instrument lor enforcing peace. They were lold at San Francisco that they could have only hair a loaf—no International organization could police the Great Powers, which were given a veto In the security Coucil. But UN would be a policeman among the little nations—they were not permitted to have a veto. Today this looks like legalistic shadow-boxing. Why tallc about the veto power if any warlike trib; can veto a decision by UN? Why pretend' that UN has partitioned Palestine when •bout all It has done is intensify civil strite? W« were told that UN could not police Germany and Japan. We were told that UN could not deal wilh the situations In Greece or KorCa. We are told today that UN cannot police Pales- line. But we refuse to believe it must ranniii. helpless. • It i« true that Moscow has hampered tlie effort to carry out the Charter's provision lor a UN police force. Bui we understand It Is Washington and London which today say sending an international force to Palestine would involve a Russian quota and "a supply line as In Austria." We don't see that any nation needs a supply line other than. the freedom ol llie seas. We believe a would be possible to overcome these obstacles in one way or another—ns by letting Ule small neutrals furnish Ihe troops, the big nations the money-it Washington and London really wanted lo do it. We believe Ihe time has come [or the people of America and Britain to insist ihat Ihclr Governments 'show more interest In giving UN at least the power lo fulfill Its obligations In Palestine If It is really impossible to lorm a genuine International police force, they should at least net under Articles 106 or 51. Both duty and onpbnunily commend such aclioii for at least Ihrec reasons: 1. The Imperative need for order. Disorder hardens, hate, invites Coiimuuujni. grows into war. Britain and America have both intervened in Palestine, both have nn obligation to maintain ordcr-lhe first requirement for me Dunning of Irccdoin and justice. UN aflords an instrument for policing controlled not by any power's Imperial purposes but the moral aspirations ol humanity. 2. The opportunity to develop UN. it can best grow and gain slrength-^and the allegiance of Ihe world's peoples-by performing necessary tasks. Debating and passing resolutions may ^ rcquisile steps, but become stultifying gestures unless carried out. u is ,i mo lo quil pretending 3. Exploring a final avenue of co-operation With Russia. The Soviet voted for partition of Palestine. There arc special reasons why in that «ca it might be willing to co-operate. If it won't the case will be Ihat much clearer. But America and Britain must first prove Ihcy want UN success.
