Suffilt.nl Parking Facilititl We Can't Buy Friends The anti-American riots in Taiwan should warn us not to fall prey to our own illusions. We do not and cannot »\vin and purchase allies. 'The creation of a solidly defensible and developing free world is a difficult task. The frustrations which masses of people suffer can be manipulated, and these loom larger in many minds than does the overriding issue of freedom versus slavery. The very facts of the hydrogen bomb stalemate between the United States and the Soviet Union, as well as the colossal power of the two major nations, often act to deepen the feeling of frustration of many people in other lands. Especially because of America's wealth and power, the people of other nations seek to feel free and independent, and, often out of a sense of inferiority, .they become hyper-sensitive. : Often, Americans have gone in with illusions about themselves and others, and' in unawareness of the underlying feelings which exist abroad. Taiwan is a grim warning about such feelings and frustrations. The warning should be headed. And we should recognize that we do not win friends by gimmicks and checkbook diplomacy. We must do more reappraising than, we have as- yet done. A Plot That Failed One of the most interesting episodes of World War II was the conspiracy -of the German generals to murder Adolf Hitler, head of the German state and their commander-in-chief. This may have altered.the outcome of the war. The story is now told in a recent book, "Conspiracy Among Generals," by Wilhelm von Schramm, a military reporter at the German headquarters in Africa. Hitler's daring actions at first horrified the army leaders, but when they proved successful, excited their admiration. As the war progressed, however, his judgment deteriorated, and his snap commands became more numerous and wilder. Eventually the German High Command decided that if the war were not to be lost, Hitler must go. Hence the bomb attempt on July 20, 1944, which had the sympathy of Field Marshal Guenther von Kluge, who commanded the German forces in the west; Gen. Karl Heinrich von Stuelpnagel, military governor of France, and even Germany's famous general in Africa, Erwin Rommel. A mere accident ruined the well- planned scheme. Had the plot succeeded, some sort of peace might have been 'arranged then and there. But a Germany ruled by generals who had long obeyed Hitler willingly would have been incalculably worse than a country governed by the liberal and shrewd Chancellor Konrad Adenauer.

Drew Pearson's MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson says: Senators can't see Ike, though Dave Beck did; Installment buying makes capitalists out of Yugoslav Communists; Congressman who once opposed Tito changed his tune. WASHINGTON — One reason Ike is having trouble with his budget is that senators and congressmen seldom get in to see him, They can't even get him to answer letters. Every congressman who wrote a letter to Roosevelt or Truman always received a personal reply. Almost all who requested appointments with Truman got in, to see him. He made it a point to see every congressman except Ad- • am Clayton Powell.of Harlem, Democrat, and Mrs. Clare Boothe Luce, Republican of Connecticut. Both had once criticized Mrs. Truman. Not every congressman got in to see Roosevelt during the war years, but they did prior to the •war. One month ago eight southern senatros asked to see Eisenhower regarding what they considered CAB- discrimination against Eastern Airlines. They received a reply • from Gen.'Wilton Persons, Ike's deputy assistant, as to why they couldn't get an appointment. Six weeks ago, seven, senators asked to see Ike regarding Hell's. Canyon. They are: Murray and Mansfield of Montana; Magnuson -and Jackson of Washington; Morse and Neuberger of Oregon; Church of Idaho. After waiting a month, White House Aide Jack Anderson wrote a long, involved letter explaining why Ike couldn't see thetn. Observed Senator NeubefrgeT: "The president was willing to take time for conferences with Dave Beck last fall, but lie hasn't time to confer with seven senators representing a part of the nation with the greatest natural resources." Mcrry-Go-Round Two famous neighbors are feuding over guided missiles. They aro Gen. Nathan Twining, new chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and Gen. James Gavin, the army's missile expert. They are so sore at each other that they will hardly speak. Ironically, they live next door to each other at Fort Myer, Virginia, and Gavin's little girls frequently call on Mrs: Twining—Gen. Tommy White, new chief of staff of tho air force, has been trying for six months to get a light bulb for a closet at his Fort Myer home. However, the army owns and operates Fort Myer, so General White of the air force has to got" the now light bulb from the army. Apparently the army figures it can save on the army budget by keeping air force closets in the dark—Secretary Dulles was so worried about the 19-million-dollar slash in the State Department's budget for salaries and expenses that he personally telephoned appropriations subcommittee chairman John Rooney of Brooklyn at 8' a. m. Rooney was so impressed with Dulles' spirit in fighting for his budget that he agreed to restore five million dollars oC the slashed funds—Secretary Dulles has been vacationing at his private island in Lake Ontario. The sessions with Adenauer nearly exhausted him. He -trios much more easily after diplomatic conferences, since his illness—Scientists aro perfecting a new anti-radar fluid that can be spread on the surface of the ocean. It will then bounce radar rays back and will be used to confuse enemy reconnaissance planes. CongresBmnn v«. Tito Installment-plan buying of American - style • electric gadgets is changing the Yugoslavs from Communists to capitalists, says Pittsburgh's GOP Congressman James G. Fulton, heretofore bitter foe of U. S. policy toward Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia. He has just returned from Tito-land. Fulton' discovered that the anti- Communist revolt in Hungary had produced "explosive" results in Yugoslavia. "It had similar effects in all tho Satellites, but particularly in Yugoslavia. The .average Yugoslav today is scared to death of the Russians." To Fulton, this moans Yugoslav can never fall back under Soviet control. Hence for the first time THREEJ A CROWD •^\^>~^ "*!/ \ << & he is supporting economic aid to Tito—plus defensive military aid. "The stores are full of, radios, refrigerators, stoves, and automobiles," reported Fulton. "All you •want. The wife says to her husband, 'pay the next .installment,' and the husband listens. As a result, the Yuyoslav 'people won't <lo the economic things their Communist leaders want them to. "The leaders are losing support- being forced to do what they don't want to do. "People are still in jail. But there's religious freedom ' now. There's a law against interferes with a church service. I didn't believe lhat until I went to a church in Osijek, near the Hungarian border. "I said to myself, 'if I can participate, though no one knows mo here, anyone can come in.' Not only did I participate, I even rang the church bell!" Fulton was amazed by the ojt- tcnt of U. S. influence. "Tho May Day parade had a real American' look," he declared, "American tanks, American equipment. There's tremendous American influence, so much that Yugoslav officaisl are complaining. "But among the people, Americans are the most popular of all nationalities." Note — Because of his-post anti- Tito history, Fulton was denied an official visa, instead had to •enter ns an ordinary tourist. His appearance caused a stir in Belgrade. Said o'ne official: "We're surprised to see you, of all people. You aren't exactly popular in our government circles, you know." Headlines & Footnotes UN Secretary General Dag Ham- marskjold is trying to persuade Egypt to build a barbed-wire I'cnca between that coutry and Israel. Israel is willing to fence off the border, but the Egyptians are against it. They claim the Jews are encroachers and won't agree to any kind of permanent boundary line. This makes it very difficult to stop raids across the border—Dominican diplomats have been contacting Dominican citizens in this country and ordering them lo sign a petition praising Dictator Trujillo. Those who rclusc are threatened with retaliation against their families. ...The signatures aro to be used in a publicity campaign to combat the mysterious . murders of Prof. Jesus Do Galindez of Columbia University ami pllot Gerald Murphy, who flew Galindez' body out of'New York.

LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri Appreciate Interest of Grandparents TJo fathers arid mothers their children, of whatever age, are still their children. Always, to them, they are images of love and tenderness to whom they cling, tied by years of habitual love. The long days of watching, guiding, hoping and praying for them, the years of affectionate thou'ght for their future happiness and success are not easily wiped out. They stay and when the children go their way and.live their lives apart from them so as to .completely sever these ties, it spells pain and a deepest loneliness. Good fathers and mothers do not deserve this treatment. Of course, when ''the children marry and set up their homes and the children come, the grandparents on both sides are excited about them and want to see them often, want to have the privilege of caring for 1 them now and then. That is often the beginning oE trouble, the beginning of the isolation of one or both sets of grandparents. Both sets of them' are likely to want to share in the affection and the care of the children, and often they are rivals in this. The young people, torn between Ihem, think the best way out is to keep uway from them or one sot of them. As usual there are two sides to the story. If one set of grandparents is demanding and jealous, there is bound to be trouble; in-law trouble, in the younger family. Bolh sides of the i'amliy must understand that both hove equal claims and be willing to yield to the circumstances. Grandparents must accustom themselves to the fact that they .do not own either their children or their grandchildren but muy, if thoy arc understanding, have the privilege of communication with them, of friendlly, helpful association. That means they give more than they demand. By stepping back without malting it a grievance, •the strain on the young people is lightened and they are grateful. . because the atmosphere is friendlier, the young people feel happier about visiting. Rivalry between grandparents makes life miserable for them and for all concerned.- Older people should know better than to harbor such feeling. When, for example, it is Grandma Mary's turn lo baby- sit and small.granddaughter pouts and says, "I want to stay with Grandma Janie," the smart thing for Grandma Mary to do is to smile and .say,' "Quite all right, Goodbye for now." _She goes her •way, leaving small granddaughter •with the idea that she is missing something —-that Grandma Mary Js hard to get. That settles any notion the child might hove of playing one grandparent against another, i ' But the burden of this situation rests with the younger parents. They, knowing what they and their children mean to thsir elders, should, in all kidness, so arrange that the older people do not foal left out,.set aside and forgotten. They, too, will be "elders" some day. Why not be kind? Heavy Rains Splatter In Flood Area Over Two Inches Of Rain Fall In Gulf States; Tornadoes Still Menace Texas By UNITED PRESS Locally heavy rainfall battered sections of the flood-endangered Southwest Tuesday night and today, and a new cold wave wi'th freezing temperatures swept the Great Lakes. Rainfall was general throughout the Gulf Coast states. One thundershower Tuesday dumped nearly 2.50 inches' at Fort Worth, Tex.
