Vandenberg 5 " Can Save U.S. From Pitfall of Isolationism , ; Th« nation, and the Republican Party,.too; oug-ht to hope that Sen. Arthur Vandenberjr of Michigan stays in jjood health 'when he returns to the Senate next January, , For if Tie is unable to exe'rcise a /air desrre« of his former leadership in foreign policy, ther« may be grave trou- b'le. • A lot of observers believe the chief, impact of the election results will be fejt in th« field of foreign affairs. They ««• the. GOP siiffkien'tlx'.strengthen- ed, in the Senate especially, to insure that Changes made in vital foreign programs. Th« post-election statements of Senator Taft and numerous others seem to bear out this notion. Though the Republicans did not win a majority in either house, they appear to. feel that th« Nov. 7 outcome was a repudiation of 'Democratic leadership in foreign affairs. In the light of the actual figures, this is . definitely presumptuous. Yet there is no doubt that a serious effort will be made in the coming year to modify and curtail several prime foreign programs such as 'the Marshall Plan,'foreign arms^assistance, and the Point Four plan for aid to backward areas. No sensible person believes the United States/can support the whole fres world or that we can spend money with indifference to the way in which it is used by our foreign friends. We have a right lo a good accounting of funds spent, and to look for progress toward the mutual goals of these programs. Yet neither can we endanger the safety of our own nation and other free countries by crippling curtailment of plans which are vital to defense against the undiminished menace of world communism. . 'There are, unfortunately, some isolationist Republicans who would go beyond reasonable caution and virtually destroy these programs. The Marshall Plan, for one, has already long since proved its value. No one lias yet proposed any sound alternatives to the others. These men must not be allowed to make their view's prevail as Republicans make their new-found strength felt in congressional councils. Any decision which has thi effect of hobbling foreign aid at this slag* would be announcement to the free world th.t the U. S. can't be relied upon to Veep its word, that it is practically aban- <toning the effort to build a strong de- *ens« world-wide against the Commun- kt-flood. . , It may take all the courage and wisdom that men like Vandenberg and freshman Senator-elect James Duff of Pennsylvania can muster to prevent such K. deb«cl«, If such leadership •thould foil, and th« i0ol«tiort!»t« manage to put ov*r their crippling proposal*, thi.> country would be in » serious position. VV« would b« thrown back largely lo ultimate defenw of America in America, without friend* elsewhere. We would have given 'up th* cause of freedom as a universal objective. ' .• ; We'd be lucky if the nation then had time to go lo the polls again and reject the men responsible for this stale of affairs. But if there were that interlude of pence before Russia felt strong- .enough to move against 'us; the people most certainly would vole down men so careless of American and world liber- tie». . '.,' Let us hope matters never tome to thai, stajre. Let us hope that Vandenberg and other wise voices can convince enough lawmakers in, 1951 that there is boundless peril in softening our defenses even in- the alight' degree. Strength, far-flung, is our only protection. Views of Others Eccles Proposes ,< Balanced Budget A plan for balancing the Federal Government budget, even'in the face of mounting defense demands, is outlined by Marriner 8. Bc- cles in Fortune Magazine. On the assumption that the national product will be 300 billion dollar*, he would take 30 per cent, or 90 billions, in taxes; allocating 15 billions to the Federal Government and IS billion* lo state and local governments. This would call for ab billion* more than the prospective S5 billions in Jeder*! taws tinder present law*.'He would raise the difference by (1) increasing individual and corporate Income taxes, (2) levying new ex- cise.taxes and (1) closing, tin.'loophole*, in the present law. In addition to these steps, he thinks that the Federal Reserve Board should be given greater authority to' control money and credit. Particularly, he would provide for greater .control of bank reserves. •••- ..... Evidences of gross waste' In the past and pre- aeht conduct of our defense and foreign aid programs make Mr. Eccles' recommendation of M billions for these purposes seem a little high. 6th-' er estimates, even of military men who are not noted'for minimizing their needs u would place the figure a little nearer 46 billion*. \, • flllt whatever figure Congress, accept*,; he i* right in hi« insistence that lh« budget muat be balanced i( we are to avoid a skyward *ur«e of inflation. The administration ha* been criminally' Xneglectful in falling to balance the budget during the five postwar year* of prosperity. Now it > faced with absolute necessity, whatever the cost In taxes might be.'.Runaway inflation in this country is exactly what the Politburo *chem- er« are contemplating-a* -their .be<t ^opportunity.-. The danger i< that ObjngTeM, in adopting a new bigger budget with Digger, taxes, will Jail io follow Mr. Eccles' recommendation of reducing domestic.civil expenditures. Minority group pressure may be too heavy. Another'danger I* that our 300-bilIion-dollar annual national product will not be maintained'in terms of present'dollar values. We must work harder than we an working now if we are to prepare for a war with Russia. The time has come when we must put country ahead of individual or group Interest. It** the only way to make a realistic-plan work. V —DALLAS MORNING HEWS We Need General "Ike" In Another Military Job General "Ike" Eisenhower M a presidential possibility has been the subject of political ipec- iMalion since 1»«. His name looms even larger this week because of Governor Dewey's announced support. The discussion ot General Eisenhower's potential candidacy will continue at least until 195J. But what concerns in most at the moment is whether he will be offered and, If he 1s offered, whether he will accept supreme military command of the North Atlantic pact countries. This is a job for which he Is pre-eminently fitted and in which he Is needed now.

' ' r _ ' PETER KDSON >'EA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON (NEA1 — Ohio's Sen. Robert A. Tatt, the victorious Republican "happy warrior," came Dack to Washington to 'say again that he would not campaign for the GOP presidential' nomination, though h e would take it if offered/When he started ' answer- Ing '• questions, .however, he certainly .talked like a - candidate. On e of Tatt's Peter Kn.oa ; greatest virtues ia»' always beeh'.that he said ex- accly what he ' thought.-That has nvolvtd him In "a lot of hot fights n the past. But at. his first Wash- ngton post- election press conference, he sounded more like Mr. ~!*ution than Mr. Republican. There was little of his best "give em hell" technique In what he had o say. This, "would require cure- 'tll. consideration." that, he had 'not made up his mind about." The other, "was something t don't know' enough about." . He corrected an important policy statement on which he said he had been .-misrepresented, before he ime back east. Out there, he had given the impression-that the whole arms aid irogram should be cut back. He had hrown a tremendous scare Into some of • the. Democratic foreign policy planners In Washington and some governments abroad. /Here in the capital he salri he was:, not against military aid to Europe. There would have to be some. He waVnot against increasing the number of American div- isions sent to wntern Germany. He was not against anything. The point he' wanted': to make was that the scope, 'the method and the character ,of the arms aid program ought to ',be • re-examined. Far East Poliej HU to k* Studied Carefully , What about Far Eastern policy? It depended on - whether we continued the bipartisan foreign policy, the senator said^ The question ought to be studied very carefully. He thought anyone who. called anyone else an "isolationist" was an Idiot. There Just couldn't be any such thing, as an Isolationist. Senator Taft says this, The senator was asked If he would -propose amendment* to' the Taft-Hartley act. He said ' there were some which he-favored, and which ''ought to be considered.'.' He thought the Taft-Hartley law was here for as far «h««d' ai- he could see ,but didn't want to commit himself on all the old posalr ' , Originally the senator said he had been in favor of the ban on industry-wide bargaining, it had lost by one vote in the Senate. But some of the international. unions had to have industry-wide bargaining, , so : , the subject should be reconsidered. . . -. Should the Taft-Hartley law be invoiced In the. phone strike? The senator said he didn't know enough about it. He didn't know that it Involved any threat to the national security. Would, the senator continue a* chairman of .the Republican polky committee in the Senate? He hadn't decided. - . . • Did he thinlc there ihould be a change In the chairmanship of the Republican national committee? He hadn't considered It, but hi was -pro- having dinner, aoon .with Mr. Gab- rjeljon. '• - • .'*— Did the senator think the 1J50 election*.indicated a trend for 1952? Yes. he.did—but, a lot of things could happen . between- now and then.. ; . . ; • ,.'• • Did he .think rent controls should be extended? He-,(Jousted it, but i.i; an'extension was ;needed, they miiht go along with price controls. He dvd. not believe wage and price control*' were necesaary ' at this moment. Then he hastened to add that : thU was; purely a peraonal opinion. .Incidentally;.,It-i« ,n op- inion'shared .by. president Truman Did Senator-;'Ttft \ thtak there should be an excess proliu tax? He hadn't made op; hw. mind.. He'd go along with the taxation committee* "n It. He <tid he thought it would be .impossible,: to pass an excess profit* tax properly j'n the corjing special session of Conirr'ess. What they ought to do is to after the while tax program, he. declared. •for the .new Congress. Senator raft iaid -he- thought the main isaues would be the siie of the defense program, where the money was coming from to pay for it, and how inflation can be prevented : What,.was this,''anyhow? Here was the;senator.who had taWthe lead .to jcut -Eurobean aid, to cut Korean .aid, to end rent controls. to tie price controls, to wage con- trola. He had voted' against an excess profits tax last summer He had criticized the Administration up one side and down the other for Its foreign policies. Yet here ht was, pleasant js could be, open-minded on every subject, ready to rtcogniae ' there was an inflationary problem. •Well, a little responsibility car. be an awfully sobering influence.
