8 »e OTTAWA. HERALD Tuesday, May 5, 1950 Feel Soviets Will Go Slowly, To Avoid War By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press Newi Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — What is the likelihood of war with the Communist world any- time soon? And where, since communism is 'dedicated to conquering the earth, will the Soviets and Red Chinese do their pushing? The State Department has provided careful answers to both questions. It doesn't rule out some shooting on e limited scale, if the Communists think it worth the price and the danger. But the department says: for the foreseeable future it is likely the Soviets and Red Chinese will •void all-out war and try to push their programs by political, eco- nomia and psychological means. . The State Department gave written answers to a series of questions from the Senate's Disarmament subcommittee. Although the department is optimistic about avoiding a world My Feet Always Get Stepped On By FRANCIS STILLEY ;NEW .YORK (AP)-lt's a big mystery to me, but for some rea son people are always stepping on my to3s. Literally, I mean. My feet seem to have a strange attraction for other people's feet. .1 can get a shoeshine and" in no time at all — crunch — somebody has clumped onto my brogans, leaving a big smudge, if no wounded toes. Even without a fresh shine, I •till get it. But I have found by dint of lengthy investigation and observation that the pedal .collisions come faster after a polish sometimes in less than a minute. : My "foot size has'nothing to do with it, because I wear an insignificant 7'i shoe. .

In the office, on the street, just anywhere. I must be jinssd. The problem is, what to do? I could sit on my feet, but there) would be times when this would prove something of an inconvenience. I could quit wearing shoes. This, too, would have its drawbacks, and doubtless broken toes. . Perhaps equip my shoes with spikes. I'd get sued, sure as anything. Keep my feet in my pockets? Nice trick. I'd even try that if I could be sure somebody would unravel me afterward. Well, there you are, and here am I, scuffed shoes, sore toes, and all.. Maybe somebody knows the answer I don't. I think I know now why those knights of old wore those armor- plated suits — and shoes. war, it said enough to show it ex pects this country to have its hands full trying to cope with the Red bloc for years to come. One thing the department made clear: it is satisfied that Premier Nikita Khrushchev, having eliminated his rivals, is undisputed boss of the Soviet Union and that therefore the political situation there should be stable for years. It Is ironic that just a few days jefore the May 11 meeting at Geneva-^between the Western and Soviet foreign ministers to talk about troubles in Europe—the de partment should be anticipating no end of trouble from the Communist bloc around the world. This is the picture. So long as the West remains as well armed as the Soviets — and therefore could make all-out war unendur able — there isn't likely to be a general war. But the Soviets' main thrust will probably continue to be in the un der-developed countries, with main emphasis on the Middle 2ast, where anti-Western feeling and native Communist help gives he Soviets hope for takeover. Latin America and particularly the newly emerging countries of Africa will probably become in creasingly important targets of Moscow's political-economic offen sive. The department added: "In Eu rope the basic Soviet objective is consolidation of Moscow's contro in Eastern Europe and reduction of Western military strength, par ticularly that of the United States "Soviet policies there for the foreseeable future will thus be aimed at tightening Moscow's grip on what it has and depriving the west of its advantage there rathe than at direct Soviet expansion although they will also seek t force the West from its position in Berlin." Ag for the Red Chinses: For th immediate future the most likely form of Chinese Communist ex pansion is continued effort to. in crease political and economic in fluence, especially in Southeas Asia, through trade offensives subversion and political pressure The department seems les hopeful that the Red Chinese wi refrain from shooting.
