The i pattern of the pyramidal strategy is dl.sclo.spd In this nr-[ first fashioned by the die munist party.

A look at the Communist parties of Europe brings out the classic attack, ticle by William L, 'Ryan, .second of a series of four he has written L*fter a two-month toar of Europe, starting In Yugoslavia and ending in Finland. By WILLIAM L. UYAN AP Foreign News Analyst PARIS Ul — "All roads." proclaims Moscow, "lead to communism." Stalin can wait. While he waits, his Red legions, spearheads for Ihe conquests of the future, build patiently and carefully against the day they insist must come—the day of "world victory of communism." ; While Stalin waits, tlie school of liie dirty trick goes into action. "One should be able to accept every sacrifice: to use, if necessary, every artifice or strategem, to adopt illegal methods, to keep .silent at some times and conceal the truth at others: all this in order to penetrate the trade unions and perform there the Communist take In spite of Rll," So wrote Leniti years ago. This is the guiding doctrine today for the Communist parties of Western Europe. k^k No Issue Too Small *»*No Issue is loo small. No ad' vantage is too trifling. Jean DuBois, worker in a French metal plant, grunts with displeasure. His jacket has fallen again from the pile of garments hung on a flimsy nail near the shop. He dusts it off, swears, and replaces It. A Communist cell member near. by notes the proceedings with interest. He is schooled to be alert to . any possible issue no matter how small. Any grievance, legitimate or othei'wise, must be used. There is tho germ at a grievance here, ami the Communist cell gets busy in ' the shop. Suddenly there Is a demand for raclw and coat hangers. It is stirred up to a pitch of frenzy. There Is a one-day strike of protest. Somehow or other, the government becomes the scapegoat for the lack of coat hangers. The Leninist doctrine that every strike must b« a political one. Is In operation again. Another blow has been struck by the Coinmunists. It in a small blow, but the effects I'^lfriount up. The blows are continuing, constant. Always the regime is attacked, no matter what the ^ grievance. Jean DuBois. worker, ^ learns to blame his every woe on the badgered government In Paris Today, Jean Dubois, m a t a I worker, id being told day after day that his dignity Is being wounded. His brothr in Italy, Giovanni Verdi. Ls being told that the Americans ars responsible for unemployment and high prices because of defense plans. His fellow worker in Germany, Hans Schmidt Is being told that the Americans are preparing Germany as the battleground for another bloody war In France, there la a carefully planned drive against what the Communist call the "cadence In fernal" — the infernal cycle, 01 and murdered Trotsky. At the floor of today's Communist attack is "unity in action," a campaign recently refurbished to fit current needs. It is reminiscent of the popular front campaign behind which Communists hid before World War II. On the next level of the pyramid is Communist labor discipline, strikingly demonstrated in France and Italy, where the Communists control the biggest trade union federations. On tho next floor is the preparation for armed action if the need arises. Here, lurking in the background, operates the inner organization of the party, ihe hard core which sets itself up on a military basis, with intelligence, sabotage squads, communications, supply and so forth, ready to strike if mid when ihc signal is given. Its parallel organizutlon is the fifth column being fashioned in the strategic in* (lu.stnes of Western Europe. This potentially powerful fifth column is building in the steel coal, communications, transport nnrt Agricultural industries against the day when it can he used for the Kremlin's best advantage. The organization is such ibat It would take only a small cell to bog dow a factory or mine.

DwlghL D, Eisenhower's .smashing New Jersey primary victory nppeared today to have convinced some of his backers he won't have to campaign vigorously for the Republican presidential nomination. Before New Jersey RpubJleans gave the five-star general a 130,000 vole margin over Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, one Influential Els- enhower campaigner told this reporter he believed the North Atlantic Treaty Organization military commander had "pulled a boner" last week in saying he had no plans to campaign. This Eisenhower backer, who didn't want to be quoted by nnme said he regarded it as a mistake !or the general to say he wouldn't resign front (he Army unless .mtil he were nominated at Chicago. But the New Jersey results appear to have bolstered the belief )l many of the Eisenhower backers that the general can come home n J une, make a few s ele c t ed [leeches and go into the convention with a good chnnce for the nomination. Only A Broad Stroke They argue that campaigning such as Taft has done across the land would only involve Elsen- hower in detailed domestic issues which he otherwise could treat with broad brush strokes.

Kef a liver's name was the only one on the ballot and lie .seemed headed for a 160,000 vote total on tiie final count. But Archibald S.

Adlai E, Stevenson of Illinois for the nomination. Stevenson Is expected to - announce today whether he will bid for the presidential nomination. If he does, Alexander and other New Jersey leaders may try to throw the delegation to him. conventions shed more light on this theory before Eisenhower's return. -^ If Eisenhower's victory was substantial in New Jersey, Taft's defeat there apparently was not crushing nor overly damaging to hi.s nomination chances. The Ohio senator appeared to have salvaged from three of six of the state's 38 delegates besides running up a respectable vote total for a candidate who tried to gee his name off the ballot, and, failing tha£, didn't campaign. John D. M. Hamilton, Taft's Eastern manager, claimed a "moral victory" for whatever that kind of a victory is worth. Even if ms attempted political withdrawal was only a political maneuver—RS the Eisenhower for- Officers Puzzle Death Of Bombed Dairy Farmer CHILDHESS, Tex. f/n — Officers puzzled today over the death of friendly dairy farmer, kJHed by bomb cleverly wired to his pick-up truek'.s starter. Hoyt Hill, 40, died In a terrific explosion' about dawn yesterday when he'pressed the starter button Friends of the big, friendly fann- er—as well as police—could give no clues as to why he was slain. For instance, I walked onto Ihe set of "The Plymouth Adventure," which boasts a full-scale replica of .he Mayflower. Appearing before the camera were such well-known lames as Spencer Tracy, Gene Ticmey, Van Johnson and l,eo Germ. I3ut I passed them up to talk to two character players who were chatting amiably in a corner. One of them was Owen McGive- ney, last of the quick-change artists, The othrr was Tom Moore, famed filar of Ihc silent days. I talked to McGivney about his profession. "I run (he lust." he remarked, shaking ni.s head sadly, "When vaudeville was at its peak, there were as many as 20 quick- change acts, most of I hem Italians who did quick versions of operas But when vaudeville died, tlu quick-change net disappeared, ex ccpt for mine." In case the youngsters in the an dienre have never seen one, t quick-cluiiiye act is one in which Ihe act or performs a variety of roles by means of lightning ehfttnjes of costume and makeup. McGi vcney's set was the most famous of Us kind. "f started it hack in 1!M() hi j fcngltuu!," !-,e recalled. "I was; playing in the lo^il and we camel to a town where a man owned a legit house and a music halS next door to earn other. He told me he paid 30 pounds (S150> for the en- ire legit troupe, but next rioor ho paid ns nuic-h as 100 pounds (55001 'or a single performer. I decided • was in the wrong end of the Hisiness." McGivpney quickly became a icadliner in London and the U. S., but disappeared from sight after .he demise of vaudeville. He re- urned to England and served valiantly as a civilian rescue worker n the bombings. After the war, a doctor fold him the English climute was bad for his lungs. So McGiv- put in a call for Ken Murray, who was enjoying a long run in 'Blackouts" in 'hollywoori. "I've been looking all over Ihc world for you," said Murray. "I want you to join the show. 1 ' Murray. McGiveney came to Hollywood ami stayed In the show three years. He'd be there yet, if Murray hadn't decided to take the show to New York, where it flopped. In recent years, McGiveney has appeared on television six limes. He has turned, down many more offera because he doesn't want the novelty of his act lo wear off. At present, he is returning lo his first profession and has played a number of character roles in films. Murry to Announct 'Intentions' Saturday LITTLE ROCK «•)—Atty. Gen.

Spaatz .says the nation is dangerously short of youngsters who \s r nnt to fly. The former chief of the U. S. Air Force said demands by youths for living instruction are critically below the level needed to sustain a major air power. Writing In "Plying" Magazine, he called thi. 1 "alarming". speedup. Casually disregarding the i ces charged and Taft men denied— known history of the speedup in the Ohionn took tho sting out of the ' - Russia »nd the sovietlzed tries, the Communists ars bent upon convincing; Western workers, particularly in defense Installations, that they are being "sup. )ited" in,the Interests of the jilted States. The campaign Is adapted to the country. Thus, while in Italy unemployment and prices are the targets, anil in Germany the specter of a new war is raised, the appeal in France is centered on the Frenchman's cherished personal dignity. This Is frequently effective. The Frenchman is likely to get his back up if lie feels his dignity and rights as a hinnnn being are molested.
