..xKANSAS TIMIS, It, IMX Says Free World Winning Battle For Hinds Of Men, But Proof Of Statement Ha rd To Find BT EDWARD E. BOMAR Washington-(/P)-The man running the American official over- teas "campaign of truth" for the past two years says positively that the free world is winning the battle for men's minds. Edward W. Barrett wound up Â· two years as assistant secretary of state by declaring that to contend otherwise is "dcfeajist poppycock." Such a judgment unfortunately is not susceptible to definite proof. Barrett coulcj get an argument from critics of the State Department and Congress--and from Moscow. Almost as Barrett spoke, John Foster Dulles, Republican State Department adviser, declared in a separate speech that the outlook is discouraging because the west is "frightened and on the defensive in the face of Soviet Com- Milton Eisen- munism."

Request For Funds The State Department has Just gone up to Congress with a request for 170 million dollars for the "truth campaign" next year, which is about double the amount voted last fall. Included is 20 million for unidentified special proj ects, and 36 million for new radii equipment to carry the Voice o America to Soviet bloc listener regardless of lied jamming. Work is going forward on" twi new transmitters--on the Atlantii and Pacific Coasts--described a the world's most powerful. A for mer Coast Guard ship has jus been fitted out to serve as a float ing radio relay station. The entire information program has just been reorganized, giving it a new status scmi-indcpenden oÂ£ the State Department. Wilson Compton, former president Washington State College, is in charge. All along stress has been on radio, largely because it can reach behind the Iron Curtain. But in border, lands, what may be more important is the local support tha is being enlisted. An estimate! 400,000 foreign organizations are cooperating now in the anti-Communist, pro-free world crusade Circulation of American publications has been more than doublec in two years. Barriers Erected The policy of seeking to presenl a full and.fair picture of America has long ago given.way to exposing Communist aims, rallying opposition, and putting up all possible psychological barriers to deter Kremlin aggression. The American official effort is backed by the privately run Radio Free Europe and the related Crusade for Freedom. All tie in to some degree with British and other western propaganda. The sum total is still only a fraction of what the Communists are doing. There is evidence that they are spending billions on "hate America" campaign, aimed at splitting the free world, undermining competence and- preventing the strengthening of western armed forces. A careful American government Intelligence estimate indicates that Moscow nlone'is spending $1,400,000,000, or more, a year on global propaganda. That doesn't include what is being done by Communist front organizations and local Communist parties in other countries.

To Effect Kilgore Would Leave Politics Bj DREW FEARSON Washington--Friends of Sen. Harlcy Kilgorc suspect cx-Sccrc- tary of Defense Louey Johnson planted the phony story t h a t - t h e senator was dropping out of politics. The story circulated In 'West Virginia was that John L. .Lewis was so opposed to Kilgorc that Kilgore was dropping out of the Senate and would plump for ex- Rep. Andrew Edmistoii as his successor. Kilgorc's payoff was supposed to be a federal judgeshlp. Actually; there was nothing to the story. Senator Kilgore is all set for a two-fisted election campaign and has the backing of .many powerful mine lieutenants of John L. Lewis. Kilgorc, extremely popular with the miners, would get their vote even if Lewis opposed him. Representative EdmUton was egged Into getting Into the rncc by Loucy Johnson when Loucy discovered he could not get even American Legion backing for the Senate. Ironically, It was Senator Kil- gorc who, lifter constant calls Â«t the White House, finally persuaded President Truman to name John-1 EM* wt *Nb son at secretary of defense. - | 'Â·. TIMEM *Mf.
