X, MTON BVKNtNO TBLBORAPR HONDAY, AMIS.«, tWJ Liberation oi Satellite States Is Ike Theme By JAltfKS MA BLOW WASHINGTON If - A consfan theme runs through the foreign policy statements of the Eisenhmv er administration: The liberation and independence of the satellite peoples, But while this may keep the hope of eventual freedom alive among them, no one has come up with a definite answer on how it can be done so long as the Russians don't want it. During the presidential campaign, Secretary of State Dulles spoke of the "liberation" of the satellites but explained he did not mean by force. In his speech to the newspaper editors here Thursday, President Elsenhower expressed a desire for the "full Independence" of the East European satellites, which are, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary. Will toe Freed And In his own address to the same group Saturday night, Dulles said any hope of peace with Russia, based on the satellites' remaining satellites, would be an "illusion." Since Eisenhower and Dulles both emphasised the goal of free- Ing the satellites from the Russian yoke, the natural question is: What can .this country do about it? Dulles and Eisenhower thought it would help sustain the hope of the captive peoples if Congress passed a resolution condemning their enslavement. But this got tangled up In.poli- tics. Eisenhower's own Republi cans wouldn't approve It in the form he suggested.' They wanted to tie oh a.few words of criticism of the Roosevelt-Truman dealings with Stalin at 'Yalta and Potsdam. The Democrats wouldn't let that go through, since It affected their party, but endorsed the resolution as it came from Eisenhower and Dulles. The net result: the resolution didn't pass. Can' Only Hope At this time, it would seem the most this country could do is hope for the eventual freedom, somehow, of the peoples taken over by the Russians. Perhaps the best hope is that they will break away, as Tito did in Yugoslavia. No one seriously expects the Russians to tell this country: "You're right. These people should be free to choose their own form of government. Come on In and supervise elections so they will be fully free and above board." The Russians had quite a stake In the first place in forcing Communism down the throats of the people on its western frontier: 1. It gave them more land and resources and more people to supply more troops in case of war with the West. 2. It gave Russia a wide buffer zone in case of war. Any land fighting would be djone over the dead bodies of the satellites before an Inch of Russian -soil was reached. Charles Lucey Wins Raymond Clapper Prize WASHINGTON /P—Charles T. Lucey, chief political writer for the Scripps-Howard Newspaper Alliance, is the winner of the ninth annual Raymond Clapper Memorial Award.
