WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1950 —Taft Hurls At Administration Forces BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS By MARVIfJ L. ARROWSMITH * WASHINGTON, Sept, 20. (fl»j _ Senator Taft (R-Ohlo) today accused the Truman administration JKappeasing the Communists" and Whelping to build Russia's military might. The Ohio lawmaker, chairman of the Senate Republican policy com-, mittee, also suggested that appeasement o; the Reds Is the surest way to bring about World War III. And he asserted that the Chinese Con'munfstf have been assisted "even more by the friendly cooperation of the far eastern division of our Stale Department", than they have been by Russia. Taft's statements came after W. Averell Harriman, President Truman's special adviser on foreign af- ialrs, had said that Taft's voting In Congress sometimes has been in line with "Communist objectives.'Harriman called Indirectly for the defeat of Tafi. In his bid for re- eiecijon and declared the most charitable thing that can be said about the ohioan "is that he knows not what he does." Taft had no comment on Harriman's speech to the American Federation of Laboi in Houston. Tex., yesterday—a speech which Senator Ferguson (H-Mich) said obviously mu.=t have had advance approval by Mr. Trumim. Taft's charges against the administration were contained in his weekly newspajjer column prepared for Ohio voters. Released today, the column was distributed to news- pen the day before Harriman's flftcch and there was no .indication Traft had any advance information lenxrdtng Harrlmnri's.remarks. "Communism has always been a. threat to the American people." Taft declared, "but the present military strength of Russia is largely the .result .of the foreign " policy of the Roosevelt and Truman administrations." , . HiU Yalta Meet He added that the two Democratic administrations followed a policy at the Yalta and Potsdam conferences "which placed Russia In a dominating position in central Europe from H'hich they can successfully threaten I he liberty of Western Europe and of the United states." Both administrations, Taft declared ha\'e displayed a "sympathy for Communism." He sftid Secretary of State Acheson's policy .of "contemplating surrender of Formosa" ( and '^recognition of the Chinese \Communists . . .was only reversed iwhen the Korean war occurred." Then Taft said: j "Now, however. President Tru•man's rebuke of General (Douglas) MacArthur makes Jt uncertain what -our policy is regarding the further fjBread of Communism in Formosa >*nd elsewhere in the Far' East. •"What Is our policy In the Far East? Are we still appeasing the Communists? Is not appeasement the most certain method of bringing on a third world war?" Taft said the appointment of Gen. George C. Marshall as Secretary of Defense "raises still more doubts" about the administration's attitude regarding Communism. He said the administration . sent Marshall io China In 1947 with orders to make Chiang Kai-shek take Communists into his cabinet, "with the obvious f Ihe administration wants repealed, has shown "no understanding of the importance of organized labor In our affairs »t home and In the n'orlu." On the labor front, John L. Lewis, chief of the United Mine Workers, also took a pot shot at Taft. Lewis wroU R. Livingston Ireland of Cleveland, president of the Ohio Oal Operatois Association,- that Taft's political handlers "propose have him enter coal mines to cozen the men underground." Lewis added: "You should refuse him entry to the mines where Americans toil. The underground workings are necessarily confined and the air therein Is easily contaminated." Iii.Vnd said he hadn't received the letter and that he would have nu comment at least until he did.

Cites Fink Influence The administration, Taft declared, has been influenced-"by Communists in the government" and by men like Henry A. Wallace, former vice president, and the late Marry'Hop- kins, adviser to President Roosevelt. The senator said that under such influence the administration adopted "the strange theory that Russia was a 'peace-loving democracy,'" ant: also "blindly accepted the promises of Stalin, who never kept a promise.'*.- In his speech to the AFL; Harriman said the nation no longer can afford to leave in positions of.high responsibility men who (ail to realize. that/American leadership is essential to the peace, of the world. • Then Hatrlman singled out, Taft and said the Ohioan had 'voted in the Senate to cripple the Marshall Plan, against the North Atlantic Treaty and against ihe military aid program. "When you look at his .record," Harriman said, "you cannot escape the conclusicn that if Congress had ado; ted his positions, Communist objectives would thereby have been fuithered.'- .-,'•. Harriman also declared that Taft, co-author of the Taft-Hartley lam- Ozark Barrel Puzzles Fol'5 With Its Antics SIMMONS, Mo., 20. (Of) — The mystery barrel of the Ozarks again is reported to be doing Its stuff. Last Mny the barrel was put into use on the John H. Orr farm near here as a reservoir for a chicken watering trough. Orr reported' the chickens-all 200 of them-drank but the barrel stayed full without being refilled. • Publicity came to the barrel. Hundreds of curious spectators flocked to the farm. The water was dipped and tasted. The level In the barrel was measured. And all the time, observers said, the barrel refilled itself. But last week a prankster tipped the barrel over, and It looked as if that ended the mystery on an unsolved note. Yesterday, however, lane E. Davis, editor of the Houston, Mo., Herald visited the farm and made this report: "When It was tipped over the family almost decided to ; leave it that way, but Monday, it was placed back on its stand and refilled. has remained filled since in the past.' It just as Davis said the barrel's new lease on life was kept secret because the Orr farm was swamped with thousands of visitors and the family also was angered by implications that It was a hoax of some kind." Now, Lane added, the Orrs have barred the farm'to anyone except immediate friends of the. family. Rains, Winds Take Their Tolls in India NEW DELHI, India, Sept. 20.
