By WASHINGTON — Foreigners probably have often wondered bow the American government of recent years has manneeri to carry on Us intense, many-sided activities in foreign affairs without any concerted anci damaging public opposition. Preside*it Truman nas encountered none of the bitter, wide-spread antagonism President Wilson met when he tried to get this country into a Lcnque of Nations. Vet his Involvement In foreign affairs far move extensive than Wilson's— at a time when many persons'ami groups in this country have strong feelings on foreign policy, largely n result of the U.S.'5 become n world power and abandoning its trndilionnl isolationism. The sccrcx. is that the professional diplomats have learned they cannot accomplish anything unless they have the people behind them. They have developed since 1045 FUI elaborate system for learning what the public is thinking, and for telling key people outside the department confidentially what the diplomats know and plan. A major clement in the system is a series ol off-the-recorri cottier- enccs here and throughout the country. The press IP told nothing about them nn)es.s it asks. Then only the names of the conferees and the theme of the conference Is disclosed. The Idea ts to keen it all stricMy confideniiai so that both the State Department men and the ont.-iide citizens can talk freely. Many Quiet (icl-Tnjjollirrs Some of the mast prominent men and women in the nation slip quietly into Washington every week nr 10 days lor a gather iup with St.ate. Department nfficinls that lasLs two or three days. Sometimes the State Department sends its officials our foi sitninr conferences in different parts of the country. Each conference has fi special srbjecl, such as China, the North Atlantic Pact, the atomic energy program, military assisf.fincc or aid to underdeveloped countries. Usually 35 to 70 persons attend. Twice R year there fs a large general conference on the whole foreign policy field, and this is attended by about 235 pcr.'ions. The department invites two types of persons: experts on foreign policy—usually university people and writers; imd representatives of various segments of the population, and who MAY or may not be foreign policy experts. The latter include leaders in industry, labor, religion, veteran or fraternal or^ani/al business, publishing, social welfare and the professions, , Two Types of Conferences The conferences are of two types (1> Where the department officials just sit and listen and let the guest, do all the talking unless the ask questions: (2) where the dc pj.rlmcnt careerists do most of th talking and then sit in on panel cussions ^ninus- the guests.
