Harold Stnssci! is nil internationalist with many followers among domestic liberals, If Senator Taft eminot get the GOP presidential'nomination, experts *»y thai many of his supporters will switch to Sliissen. If the Ohion' rtoes get the nomination, there are rumors that he \vould not object to Stassen as his running: mate. , To veteran politicians the logic is clear. Both are out to stop Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, the presumable front-runner. But it is odd, isn't it, that those who want an isolationist-conservative will take an internationalist-liberal in preference to a middle-of-the-roader.

Hear Both Sides Of late years, there has been growing public resentment about the conduct of congressional investigations. This perhaps lias been most apparent in connection with what still is thought of as the "Dies Committee." Much criticism of that committee has been inspired and cleverly propagated by the extreme left-wing, spark- plugged by Communists who used their customary smear tactics to draw red herrings over fresh trails. But much also has originated with the middle- roaders and even with' generally conservative persons who thought the committee often did the right thing in tlie worst way. And there has been reasoned criticism of the tactics of many other committees, Federal Judge Simon H. Hifldnd ot New York recently instructed a grand jury that the congressional committee methods are contrary to the American conception of justice, litcause. the investigators do not heed "one of Ihe maxims of our democracy that it is better than 100 guilty men escape than that one innocent man should suffer punishment." We concur in the feeling that congressional investigating committees should mend their ways, but we do not go along with Judge Rifkind's particular ideas. . The judge would have committees "• operate with the same strait-jacket and blinders that often make the administration of justice in the courts a mockery. He thinks they should observe the "rules of evidence" and the ""rule of probable cause," and not consider "rumor, gossip, hearsay, surmise." Tlie jurist's erstwhile law partner. Sen. Robert Wagner, could tell him there is a vast difference between the • legitimate goal of a legislative investigating committee and (hat of a criminal court. The committee is seeking data on which to base the text of new laws or of amendments to existing statutes. The court is determining whether to punish.somebody for an illegal act, and if so, how severely. We are committed to the judicial . thesis that it is better to acquit many villains than to convict one man", how- .ever vicious and anti-social, of maybe the only crime in his neighborhood he didn't commit. With that in mind we have permitted lawyer-legislators to enact a code that makes the trial of any defendant a chess game between counsel. Notwithstanding the many serious abuses of which the "Dies" and other committees have been guilty, their fault was not in receiving and even considering evidence that, under Judge Rifkind's rules of evidence, is hearsay, incompetent, irrelevant and immaterial rumor, gossip, guesswork and surmise. Their fault is that their hearings are, as the lawyer would say, ex parte. Only one side is heard. The witness is expected to answer questions which bring out, what the committee wants, but he is not permitted to present rebuttal' himself or through his own witnesses. This works frequent injustice against him. Even more serious, it often deprives Congress of all the lads to which its members are entitled. The Blessings of Capitalism Nationalization of the coal industry . is the cause of the "present unrest" among Rrilish miners, says nn editorial in the United Mine Workers Journal. The LJMW paper states further that John L. Lewis' union has voted down all proposals for nationalization in this country, and that all it asks is "improved safety legislation." It is a comfort to know that private ownership can be thanked for Mr. Lewis' tranquil contentment and modest demands at contract-negotiating time. VIEWS OF OTHERS Lesson of 1938 Looking back a lew years, we may see that a terrlbl* thing ciui happen; the world may be going to pieces under our feet, and lew will see it. i , Exaclly that disaster was occurring in 1U3B. Yet hardly anyone seemed to be conscious ot the Impending storm, and hpruiy a warning voice was raised. Two o( the hnncllul who did see clearly were the late President Roosevelt, and our then Secretary of Slate Corriell Hull. In a speech, August 16, 1038. Mr. Hull asked: "Is the future of tlie world to lie determined by armed force and fietiucnt resort lo aggression?" The whole structure ol International law, all the rules of good behavior between nations, were crumbling awny. Ominous events oi several previous years were rushing to their horrible climax. China, fighting desperately against the Japanese invasion, appealed to the League of Nations for help^ So did the Spanish government | which was reeling under the blows of rebel forces supported by Italy and Germany. But the League did nothing. H never had been more than a stage or twwer politics. In Ili September, 1838, meeting, the Ldtgue didn't so much as mention Ethiopia, w'hlcn Mussolini luut brutally gobbled up. It lilted not a finger to aid Czechoslovakia, which Hitler was preparing lo tear apart, as he did the next month. It stood by, uiina, or numb, or paralyzed, while Hitler and Mussolini and the Japanese war lords blustered and grabbed and threatened. Positive action might have averted the war. But the free nations wanted no trouble. They flinched back, closed their eyes lo the pern, and drifted into blood and tears and costs thai their gical-grandcliilriren will still be paying, Has the bitter lesson been learned? Today Russia Is bom headlong on an agsressive carcer. s ' Firmness may not stop her. But trie past tells us what we may almost certainly expect it the effort is not made. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.

(NEA) —With policing of the Balkans and the rlghlness of the Truman doc- Irine of aid to Greece and Turkey still two of the most controversial Issues beforo the United Notions General Assembly in Mew York, It, might b e fruitful to force into the open the terms of two treaties between Soviet Russia and Yugoslavia.

Yet Marshal Tito, ilias Josip Broz, Russian-trained Communist, went to Moscow ns licad ol the army in Yugoslavia ml there signed a 20-year treaty of friendship between the two coun- ries. The official povernment of Yugoslavia, at that time, was the monarchy under the regency of young King Peter II. The election • which ousted the king and set Tito'up in jower us premier minister of defense, head of the army and vir- :ual dictator, was not held until November. 1045 . Six months later. Tito returned :o Moscow lo get his second treaty. Only news about it was some ballyhoo in the Moscow press of June 11. 1946. balling the signing of the pact three flays before. According io the Moscow paiiers, this second treaty provided that So\j3t Russia would rebuild Yugoslavia's war industries and equip its armies.

Only difference between the two agreements 1« that the Truman plan IE all out In the open—1100 million for military aid to Turkey. $150 million lor Greece. How much Soviet Russia Is pouring Into Yugoslavia Is kept secret In a cov- - -enant not openly arrived at. It is this tacking by the might of, Soviet Russia, however, which makes Tito the bad man of the Balkans. There Is no denying that Yugoslavia was ripe for a revolution when (he war was over. Its govern-' incut under "the regency was pro-[ bnbly a.s bad :,s they come. And the I dominant., land-holding clergy, as in j all backward countries, was no model of social uplift. Tito was just the bo v to clenn out this mess, but he went to extremes. He ha.s an army and police force that has been estimated at 600,000, with 1000 planes. His government is quick to use this force, Including a dreaded secret police called the OZNA, modeled on the Russian NKVI>, to put down all opposition. The poor peasants may not like their new masters any better than the old, but there isn't anything they can do about it. TITO PROFESSES FRIENDSHIP.

Patients with hemophilia show a .endency to bleed excessively fol- owing trivial injuries. Brisk bleed- rig or oczing may last for hours or days, unless special treatments are administered. Hemophilia is an hereditary blced- .ng disease, which the women of certain families transmit to their sons. The condition persists through many generations and apparently never dies out. Hemophilia asserts Itself by the 'allure of the blood pro[)erly to coagulate. The way In which this nherlled difficulty develops is unknown. Male children of women who pass Hemophilia are not all affected, one-third escape the condition and, among the women, only two- thircis are passers.

All tk< while theae extremely annoying incidents have been taking place, an effort has been made to work out t settlement of u. • S.- Yugoslav fiscal affaire. The U. S. government now holds in New York some i*1 million in gold belonging to the old royal Yugoslav government. Thia, and »3B million more in private funds of Yugoslav nationals, were blocked at the beginning of the war. Tito naturally wants to get his hands on this money. He has filed all torU of fantastic claims against the U. S. government, arising from the war. When Tito's government took over, it nationalized all major Industries. Among American properties seized were Standard Oil facilities, the American - Yugoslav- Electric Company, Corn Products Refining properties, an '. so on. Remuneration for this must be worked out. Also, the U. S. furnished Yugoslavia with $32 million lend-lease aid, certain "Plan A" relief, given by the Army before CJNRR.A No re compcnse is asked for the $288 million U.
