WEDNESDAY, JTJLY 25, 1951 BIA'THEVIU.E, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THK NATION TODAY State Department's 'Voice Is GOP Target By JAMES MAR tOW WASHINGTON, July 25. (API — This week (he'House votes on money for tile State Dcpartmpnt. which Includes money for its "Voii-e of America." ^ The Republicans, hanging away *t the State Department and Secretary Acheson for years, have made a special target of the "voice." They're not talking of abolislilui; It. They wanted to cut down the! money [or it. They say they don't! Jihe thfl way ll's run. Further, they dr.n't like tlie people running it. They call them nincompoops nnrt fuzzy-minded, not unusual phrases In attacks on the State Department. Speak* 45 rairxliagcs The "voice' Is part of the Dcpail- rr.ent's information and pr lirocram Intended to win friends' and Influence people abroad. The "voice" broadcasts daily In 4S languages nroimd the world,! providing news, features and com-i nicnls on world affairs. j The atiuc Department'also main-! tains libraries abroad, distributes' films in what countries it ran. and send-; out nishlly 10,000 words o! world news by wireless to 1QO American missions abroad. The libraries, films and news mil-, Ictins are practically useless in reaching people In the CommmiiU: countries. Being seen iislHR tliemj v.oulu be dangerous, if not fatal. So the "voire" broadcasts through the iron curtain this country's best hope o! Betting some information, news and American propaganda to the people living under Communism. Still, no one can say how effec- tive the "voice" ie !n reaching those people. All you can ever get. is guesses for the obvious reason thai the State Department can't take a radio audience poll in Communist countries. Attempt la "Jam" Vole* The number of people behind the curtain who'd dare listen, or couluj listen if they dared, is probably comparatively small. That's czily a guess, of course. But, for one thing, the Russian;, put a lot ol effort into jamming tiie "voice" to keep the people behind the curtain from hearing. And in Russia it is estimated that there are only 5.000,000 receiving sets. The Republicans not only don't 1'ke Ihe people running the infer mation - propaganda program but they don't like what the "voice" is doing. For Instance. Rep. Taber, N'ew York Republican, says the "nincompoops" and the fuzzy-minded people should be cleaned out. along with Secretary Acheson, who Is the main Republican target anyway. And Fep. Clarence Brown, Ohio Republican, mnde a lone speech in Ihe House this week, saying of the "voice"; "The opinion is almost universa (hat there Is entir too much I PAGE SEVEN American big-heartccinoss."
