r MONDAY/SEPTEMBER 1, 1952 Revolt of Satellite Nations Could Pose Most Difficult Problem for United States BLTTHEVILIJE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS By ELTON C. FAY Military Reporter WASHINGTON Iff, - All armed revolt by a satellite nation against the Soviet Union could pose the most dangerous and difficult problem confronting the United States in all (lie years of the cold war. - America would have to decide quickly whether It should help the Satellite, and determine (lie extent and form of help. _ Any direct support by American armed forces- to the satellite presumably would mean engagement \\ith troops of the USSR and create the direct danger of setting off World War Iir. Conversely, failure lo help could injure American prestige Irreparably and discourage other Communist-conquered countries from seeking freedom. Kremlin Wouldn't Hesitate The possibility of an elaborate Moscow plan to start a war and place the apparent blame on the free world would have to be reckoned 'With. Ruthless Kremlin policy would not hesitate to foment a revolutionary move deliberately to set the stage for Intervention and world war. The U. S. and other Western nations would have to decide — and that quickly — whether an uprising was'genuine. Aid short of a full-scale expedi- i tionary force could be given a revolting satellite by Western nations but its value would'be determined by the extent to which Russia moved against the revolution and the" interpretation she might phob'se to place on the aid. i Arms immediately available In the area could be sent lo the satel- /• lite. Military advisory officers, like those us6d in present : military assistance programs with friendly nations, might be sent. But there would be no time for setting up « full-scale arms aid program. A step beyond this might be air support of the satellite's ground forces. But the difference between sending in .fighters and bombers and marching ground forces to the help of the revolutionists would be a matter of degree. In Washington, the prospect of an uprising by a satellite nation against Russia — as distinguished from Tito's bloodless defection from the Moscovy camp—is looked i upon as a possibility for the future Which must be considered, but which does riot appear imminent. There is no known move either within the U. S. government .or among political parlies here to in- cile a revolt in Czechoslovakia, Poland, "Hungary, Rumania, Bulgaria or the Eastern Hemisphere Satellites.. Aside from the danger of- sparking 'a <war,- there is the possibility of failure. Ah unsuccessful revolt against Soviet Russia could bring grim retribution. Uprisings Are L'r^ed /The U. S. government is confining' its propaganda lo efforts short of urglngr uprising', it may and,does, in its Voice of America ' broadcasts, to Communist territory plant and foster the seeds of dissatisfaction but abstains fioin counseling armed revolt. In the national political conventions and in the speeches of candidates there has been talk of the eventual day when the captive nations will attain liberation. ' But the Democratic platform is careful In stating only that "we look forward to the day when the liberties" of the .Russian - conquered countries will be restored to them and they can again take their rightful place in the community of free nations." And the Republican platform predicts that the contagious, liberating influences inherent in freedom "will inevitably, set up strains and .slresses . within Hie captive world which will make the rulers impotent to continue their monstrous ways and mark the begin ning ol their end."

Slot Machine Helps in Yale's Hunger Studies in Laboratory By FRANK CARRY AP Science Reporter " WASHINGTON (/P, — A scientific version of. the familiar slot machine is helping new studies at Yale on hunger, the American Psychological Association was told today. And it pays out food — instead of nickels, dimes or quarters — when the rats bit the Jackpot. ment of the hunger-reducing effects of "stomach - stretching." The scientists, said they rigged tiny plastic tubes in the animals bodies so that fluids could be Injected; directly into the stomach through an opening in the neck. One tube was connected with an inflatable balloon in the rat's tum- ... my. When this was filled with a Just as human hopefuls pull on salt solution, the hunger of the a slot-machine handle in their, rate was reduced somewhat a? evi- ouest for easy money, the rals press I deuced by fewer pushes 'on on a bar attached to a machine con- taming milk. • But, Just like the human devotees, the rats get paid off only "at certain unpredictable limes.". The machine is pie-set that way. * Nevertheless, Yale psychologists Nearl E. Miller and Marion I,. Kessen told the Association's 60th annual meeting, the rals 1 bar-pressing activity constitutes a measurable index of how hungry they are. The psychologists said in a prepared report that the machine Is used in studies primarily designed to get a more accurate measure- "hunger' bar of the ''clot-machine." This verified that slomach dis- tentlon alone can reduce hunger. Another tube, without a balloon attachment, was later used to Inject milk directly into the stomach. In this case, hunger was reduced still mor—indicating that mere chemical action of food, aside from stomach-distention alone, plays a role In reducing the pangs of hunger. And such factors, the researcher's said, operate before the food has time to be digested arid absorbed.
