Henri Navarre, t h e French commander, has literally been throwing away planes and pa'ratroopcis over Communist-ringed Dien Bien Phu. Reports have tillered back to the Pentagon that airlift planes have announced their position to Bed antiaircraft batteries below. For some unaccountable reason, the pilots have been reporting their exact altitude and relay inn flight, instructions in plain French wilhout bothering to use code. jn other words, as the planes drone over Dien Bien Phu, the art-control radio crackles with exact reports on their position and cargo. All the Red antiair- cr£ft gunners need is a radio to-get .a bearing on the planes. The -result has been appallingly accurate antiaircraft fire. Over one-third of the parachuting reinforcements have been lost before they got a chance to go into action. U.S. Military observers urged the French to withdraw from Dien Bien Phu In the first place because it was too exposed. They also report that Hen. Navarre failed to pour in enough supplies and medicine to sustain the" besieged jungle fortress. Finally they suggested sending to 4 cents a pound ~- onjy a fraction of what the milk cost the taxpayers. However, this cut- rale sale of dried milk should act as- a stimulant to the feed industry and \\ill probably lower the farmers' Iced bills a bit.

McConnell's the embattled defenders, but Na-1 deputy is Walter C. Berger, whu varre dispatched such a small force that it was ambushed and had. to retreat. Irony is that Dien Bien Phu was erected as a trap to bait the Reds. It was built in the deep jungles on the same theory that the natives tether a goat or lamb in the jungle to bait a tiger. They then lie in wait arid shoot the tiger. The French figured that by inticing the Reds to attack the impregnable fortress of Dien Bien Phu they could entrap und massacre a large segment of the Vietminh Army. This was the sole purpose of the fort. Strategically, it isn't important. However, the tragic- battle to de- fepd it is influencing the peace of the world.

April 30 — If somebody ran draw a line inside Indorhina that is militarily defensible and does not moan the entering wodue for an infiltration of the whole area by Communists, a cease-fire ran he work- rr) out at this "onforr-nr-e. That is uhal President Eisenhower ties'-ribed as ,1 "mrxlus vivendi", which is an old diplomatic phrase meaning a mode of living with a disagreeable and unsolvablc situation. But the military nTM of the French high command and of the United States are skeptical as to whether surh p. lino c an be found. If the diplomat \\ant a military line submitted merely as a way out of their political difficulties, il rnn tie drawn. There isn't ;my use deceiving anybody, houovor, for such a truce line \\ill become Ihe effective partition line. ;md nlti- malely can menn ibo acquisition of all Indochina by ihe Communists. The optimistic doctrine is being handed out in some quarters here that, while the cease-fire is in effect and discussions are dragging airing fot a year or two as lo a political conference lo he held at some subsequent dale, there will bo an opportunity to train local troops to safeguard the independence of the three new slates. All Ibis would mean that, like Korea. Indochina \unild have a I nice lino and the fighting would bo over. But (ho moment the Communists find out that Ihe Allies bore are ready to throw in ihe sponge at some designated truce line, the price will go up. The Communists will insist on a line even more advantageous to them, and the haggling hero may go on for weeks on that point. Meanwhile, Sorrel ;»ry Dulles has announced that he is going back to Washington on Tuesday. The effect may be to speed up the conversations looking toward posssiblo agreements because, if there is lo be a long wrangle, the Secretary would prefer to have his deputy hero while he exercises freedom of action in giving from Washington the ne- cesssarv instructions to the American delegation. It has boon evident for some time that the sole put-pose of the Communists in coming to (his conference was lo try to make some kind of trade on Ihe Indochina situation which would relieve Moscow of the burden of mililary supply to Southeast Asia and yet achieve for Jhem practical control of the area. Judging by the puhlic speeches made thus far, the Communists have not the slightest intention of agreeing now to any plan for tiie unification of Korea, though they will pay lip service to the principle of unification. Their concept is to have elections of the many, and the net effect of such a plan would be to acquire control of all Korea for the Communists. The United States is opposed in principle lo a partition of Indochina but is prepared lo ox- presss its views only after some concrete proposal is at band. If such a proposal is unsatisfactory to America, yet is pressed by the French and-they are prepared to surrender their influence in Indochina by accepting a truce line that will in effect become a permanent partition, the United States will express its disssenting viev'ys and then lake a look al the whole European s filiation as well as the Southeastern Asian problem and decide its I'd lure course, The question lo determine will be whether America has faithful Allies who will stand up against the Communists when the chips are down or whether France, for in- slanco, is ready to accept permanent dismemberment of free countries wherever Communist aggression has taken away ter- and 5O Years Ago April M.I 929 The rtty had offered manpower from the .iail to help r-loan up in Ka«t KnH area after tnn flood waters subsided.

McDowell's figures on buildings j represented a partial breakdown on an earlier estimate by Harlow A.

Allen Reports 2OO Red Fronts WASHINGTON - Two hund- r e d organizations in various parts of the country face being charged as Communist fronts. A number of them are labor unions. All will be formally accused by Attorney General Herbert Brownell. He has completed compilation of this new list of alleged secret Red affiliates and will shortly submit it to the Subversive Activities Control Board. This quasi-judicial agency was created hy Congress expressly to consider such citations. The ftye- member Board hold.-, hearings on eao.h case and then hands down a ruling, which can be appealed lo the federal courts. The Justice Department bases its charge on exhaustive FBI investigations. Congressional probers have nothing to do with the preparation of these cases. In fact, it's the other way around. The congressional investigators -use the FBI's reports to stasie headline- making hearings. Brownell's forthcoming list of Communist-lagged organizations will be a striking instance of this generally overlooked fact. It will also be further affirmation of Die Administration's're- peated contention that the constant and effective safeguarding of the nation's security is in the hands of the Justice Department and other enforcement agencies. Their quiet ana persistent, work is HIP real defense against subversives, security risks and spies. The politicos get the publicity, but these agencies fisht Ihe never-ending battle against Red infiltration and destruction. Inside word about Brownoli's unannounced plan came from Board Chairman Thomas J. Herbert. HP made the disclosure in explaining to a group of Senators why his agency needed extra lunds. "The reason for asking an increase in our budget." the former Ohio Governor said, "is that we have been told hi' representatives of the Justice Department that new Communist-front cases will be filed with us in the next few months. We were advised that Attorney General Brownell has 200 such cases ready to send to us." "How many cases are now pending before your Board?" asked Sen. Levcrett Saltonstall (R., Mass.) "Around 10", replied Herbert, "but a number of the new cases will he submitted in May and the remainder in June. It is our understanding that all or most of these 200 new cases will be cited by July 1." Note: Sen. William Jenner (R. Ind.i, chairman of the Internal Security Subcommittee, is sending out more than 10,000 copies of Brownell's testimony on the late Harry Dexter White to Republican organizations throughout the county. Good News! Progress is being made in treating certain types of cancer with radioactive isotopes. Authority for that cheering ncnvs is the head of the Atomic Energy Commission. Chairrnan Lewis Strauss, supported by Dr. John C, Bugher, director of the Commission's Division of Biology and Medicine discussed this significant development at a private meeting of the Senate Appropriations Committee. They appealed to the senators for the restoration of $3,100,000 which the House cut Irom the Commission's budget for research in using isotopes in cancer cases, Strausss pointed out that while this medical program is one of the least expensive in the Commission's bueget, it is among the most important and promising. ' "Are you really getting anywhere in this research?" asked Sen. Burnet Maybank (D., S.C.). said Strauss, "No universal breakthrough has yet' been achieved in the cancer problem.
