FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11. 1953 B!,YTHEVIU,E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINB Russia Has Strange Problem, But Couldn't Help Saying ' By JAMSE MARLOW One of the strangest problems of modern times confronts the WASHINGTON (AP) Russians. If" they show interest in President Eisenhower's offer sia and other nations to pool atomic materials for peace — Europe's military preparations. That's exactly what they've been trying to do for a long time by one propaganda device after another, knowing: the West Europeans would rather not arm if they could be sure Moscow wants peace. While never Intending; to see it through, the Russians could show interest in Eisenhower's idea and then stall as long as it suited their ; purpose. Instead, the Moscow radio, before the Kremlin had time for serious reflection on the American of- ser, began denouncing it, charging j Eisenhower's proposal was not peaceful at all but a threat of war. And Russia's delegate to the United Nations, Andrei Vishinsky, quickly threw cold water on the idea, too. The White House refused to accept these reactions as final unless the Soviet government officially says they are. It hasn't said BO yet. Mechanical Men Nevertheless, the radio - Vish- insky reactions carried a sense of shock, not so much because the Russians seemed to be rejecting the idea but because they seemed to be rejecting it so Quickly. It was as If they had disclosed a fatal sickness; an inability to think fast in a new situation, adjust themselves to it, or turn it to their own use. They sounded like mechanical men trained so long along one line of thought that they had to depend, not on the mind, but on a simple reflex action, "No." The Russians were not prepared for Eisenhower's proposal. Their preliminary "no" looked like a tactical blunder. Moscow for years has spent enormous time and energy in trying to get Western Europe into the Russian camp. Between the end of the war in 1945 and launching of the Marshall Plan in 1948, Russia tried to take over Western Europe by means of local Communist parties working from within. Those local Communists made astonishing gains in West European elections because their native countries were broke, confused and drifting. If the drift had continued, they might have taken over peacefully. Appear Stupefied The United States recognized the — for the United States, Rus- they might slow down Western danger and set in motion the Marshall Plan of economic aid to get Western Europe back on its feet. In a Europe beginning to prosper, the local Communists lost ground. Russia would have no part of the plan. It began a long propaganda campaign against it. The United States and Western Europe, having tied their fortunes together economically, then did so militarily. They set up the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, in which they promised to come to one another's assistance if any of them was attacked, .Russia propagandized against NATO and is still doing so. In addition to economic aid, the United States contributed military aid. Next came the idea for EDC —European Defense Community —a single army of West Europeans. Russia propagandized against that. NATO Is far from pei?:ct, and EDC isn't even in existence yet. Russia might delay, both by showing interest in Eisenhower's atom plan. But the suddenness of the proposal seems to have stupefied the Russians. Incredulous Students Told By Expert Love Is Work, Not Play NORMAN, Okla. Wl — University of Oklahoma undergraduates are being told "Love is nice work, if you can get it," Indicating that the experts have finally caught up •.with the smoochers. But this particular expert, Ned Linegar of Dallas, Tex., has » new twist. "Love," he says, "is work ^all work and no play." Einegar, « family man. readily admits, however, "Love is » won- ACTRESS (Continued from Page $) ment. Gordon gave her a starlet's contract. "My experience at Fox -was not a liappy one," she commented on the set of her second big picture, "The Wood Hawk." "I had bits in three pictures. And I mean bits. You have to look fast to even see me. "I didn't even work during my last six months there. Every u-eet I hired-a taxi, drove to the studio, picked up my check and drove home. They said they ivould hire me for another year at the same salary. I said no thanks." Donna took off for Las Vegas, fc,Nev. f where she was seen by Max Arnow, Columbia's talent head. He had wanted to sign her before, but hadn't been able to locate her. He invited her to test for "From Here to Eternity," but she lost out to Another Donna named Reed. Then came "The Caine Mutiny" and May Wynn. Our girl tried out for it and won. But her own name had to go. "Stanley Kramer, the producer, said there hadn't been a May on the screen since the days of May McEvoy and Mae Murray," she remarked. "He also said May Wynn was good because it couldn't be mispronounced. "He was right. I receive fan mail addressed to May, Mae or Mai and Wynn, Wyn or Winn. It always gets to me." derful thing," but goes on to explain: "It takes practice to learn how to express affection and yet look how few of us really devote any time to studying or practicing it. No wonder so many folks are awkward when it comes to expressing acts of love." The lecturer, one of several speakers brought here for campus religious week activities, goes on to say: "Despite our excellent school systems, which teach us everything from algebra to zoology how much of that time is given over to this subject?" Must Seek Mate Linegar answers his own question: "Very little, if any time at all.' 1 He also pooh-poohs the old saying: There's only one right mate for each, and every one of us. If J,hat were true, he argues, marriage as an institution would be wrecked. "To find the right person in life," says Linegar, "you've got to go out, meet folks and get acquainted for you've got to grow into this thing called love and that's, done through companionship with members of the opposite sex. And to go out and find the right one, you've first got to become the right person yourself." And how does one know his or her reaction is the real thing? "You can't miss it. It radiates energy. That accounts for the shining light so often seen in the eyes of young lovers. Love is real, as well as earnest, when it stands the tests of time, separation, companionship and when it also represents the growth of the individuals ', concerned." j Linegar holds a master of arts \ in sociology from the University of j Cincinnati and studied at the Uni- | versity of Chicago Divinity School, i Channel Crossers More than 50.000,000 passengers fly over the English Channel annually, following the same route taken by Louis Bleriot when he made the first crossing.
