MONDAY, FEB. 9, 1847 DREW PEARSON *- • • - ON •"" :'. ••-•• °The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pcarsn Says: Soviet Ambassador Garbles His Denials; How Phil Murray Blocked Rent Increase; Army Books Take Curse Off Bayonets ( - ft' Soviet Ambassador Novikov is as iii;- in his diplomatic relations as, in Jus press ro- lalions, lit- ought to l>e recalled from the all-important post of Russian Kiivoy 'to the United States. Tho other flay the Ambassador denied a conversation published in this column in which he was reported. as that tlio American people should not put too much reliance on the atomic bomb, and hinted that Russia might have adequate defense against the bomb or else a bomb of her own, Indl^rmntly, the /.mbnysulov denied that he htui said any such thlnjf. ''The usur.l dlHtortlon by Mr. Pearson." ho claimed. Then he compUUnod that his talk with Robert Gros (the California Ipc.turcr whom thiH column quoted) had been "ot Mho-record" and ho "couldn't understand how it had leaked to the press," In other words, tho Ambassador both admitted and denied that he said what he did—all In the same breath. Perhaps If his Government lets Mr. Novikov hanK ai'ound long cnouuKh, he'll learn to pick one wtory or the other and then stick to it. Army Education Public opinion expert George Gallup proved to tho last: decimal point thi.i week that more men would enlist in the more Army men and iu*i: courses are accepted for credit by almost every school in the country. Gallup goes on to make tho weird statement 'that army authorities question the idea of the Army's goins into the business of general education. Clearly, none of Gallup's score- koopors asked the Secretary of War or power - packed General E u c k" "Lanham. head of the Army's Information and Education branch about this. They not only don't question it, but they do If sending teachers and books and quizzes and lessons by the thousands all over '.he world.
