Washington--President Truman had * frank exchange the.other.day with Catholic Congrfo-' man Clement Zablockl. of .Wisconsin regarding Truman's blast at Dictator.Franco of Spain.' Congressman Zablockl didn't approve of the president's action and bluntly gald so. ' · "It was most unfortunate that your remarks were made .about the same time that General Elsenhower-also spoke out against Spain," declared the Wisconsin legislator. "I naturally feel that we are 'going to gel .more out of the dollars we spend for aiding Atlantic pact nations if Spain belongs to the pact, I agree that conditions in Spain are none too happy, but Yugoslavia Isn't a democracy either and yet we'have given Tito millions In aid," : · · · · Truman replied that his criticism w a s directed solely at Franco and not at the Spanish people. Franco was chiefly responsible for the "intolerance" suffered by what he called "that minority of minorities"--about 30,000 Spanish Protestants. ' · "In some parts of Spain . Protestants can't ..even bury their dead during the day or mark . their graves with tombstones for fear of in- citlni demonstrations." declared Truman. "Dictatorships encourage .that sort of .thing." Zablockl agreed the situation was "regretts- ' ble," but added: ,, ' "We have the problem r i g h t . here ift the . United Slates. Catholics, Jews and Negroes, er, for that matter, anybody with a foreign-sounding name! are badly treated In our Ku Klux areas. We have been'reading lately about ruffians stoning synagogues." "Unfortunately,'-the* is trije," .agreed Tru. man, bill went on to point out'' thai he, as president, was doing everything possible to stamp out intolerance while Franco wasn't l i f t i n g a finger. . "As president of the. United States," he said, "I will not compromise, with the persecution 'of minorities either In this country or anywhere in t h e world." · ' . ; · · Zablockl observed that the.sltuation'in Spain could be corrected a lot quicker if we took Spain -Into the A t l a n t i c . p a c t ; ' but the president tlls- *gred.

Sen. :Ralph. glanders, Vermont Republican gave Taft an'opening by protesting: "1 have no confidence whatever that the natural professional way of thinking . . . will ever be satisfied With any-scale of military development and expenditure,: It is Just In the nature of the case that they should not fie."

Vrhe Conference on· Psychological 'Strategy heard a candid report on the shoddy' treatment of Iron Curtain escapees from a man who had · ringside seat-Philip E. Ryan, former chief of mission of the International Refugee Organization, _.- t ·· "They exist In overcrowded camps with little .hope for emigration, practically no possibility for employment, and no means at their disposal to fight back at the thing (Communism) which has broken their lives," reported Ryan. With regard to., our "policy" on refugees, Ryan explained: "On the one hand, we apparently, encourage flight from intolerable conditions under Communism. The picture of life in ' the west Is tantamount'to an invitation to 'coma over to our side.' . "Once they are in 'the west, however, 'we renounce responsibility. After we have milked them of any,informatlon they can give us, they "fci u V ' u °7' r to tne German government, which It burdened with over 9,000,000 German refugees.. . "Is It any wonder-that some refugees, disillusioned- by their reception in the .west, have returned jto the east to be exploited and held up as examples of the unreliability of the west? Thus we'hand the Russians a weapon which they con use effectively to convince their listeners lhat we merely mouth false promises One Iron Curtain refugee, bitter because attention was lavished only on those who escape dramatically, us in the Czech "Freedom Train" last summer 1 , grumbled to Ryan: "The only way youd get attention now Is to be shot across (the Iron Curtain) in a cannon."

"We are sorely In need of defense housing chiefly In Northern New Jersey," declared the mayor who replaced Hague.,"But Hague'Is so vindictive that we have reports that he is try- Ing to divert these projects 1 to New York and Pennsylvania.". '. ' ,, ' ' . Truman promised to give the matter his "personal attention," adding tersely, "I guess some people don't.know when to quit." Note--When Kenny recalled that he ha'd' met the president's daughter,'Margaret, snd his .brother,-Vivan, Truman Interposed: "Yes b u t ..you-haven't met the - boss. - Some day I'd like'to' Introduce- you to Mrs. Tnimtt " .- In. Washington Mrs. Frank Pace, Jr wife of thrsecretary of the Army, recently pointed out that her husband's close association with the president and other responsible men in government provided an excellent opportunity to give their young daughters »· first-hand lesson on current events. " I t - i s Important that even the children know as much as possible these days about the tensions and problems that beset the world," urged Mrs. Pace. Frank agreed that there was great merit in his wife s proposal, and forthwith summoned his wB young daughters, Paula and .Priscilla, for lesson number.one. The two .girls were completely aBsbrbed In his discourse. At its conclusion .he asked if they had understood everything-he had-told them. The older daughter nodded yes. The younger--about six--admitted that one thing was bothering her very much "Out with It," said,Pace. "What is It you don't understand?"

Thirty Tear* Ago To«ay (Fajetteville Daily Democrat, February 29,1922) Two sections of Arkansas, the extreme north- castern-and the southeastern, have responded to' the suggestion of the Arkansas Advancement Association that an effort be made to entertain the 300 residents of the Ohio Valley who will this week pass down the Mississippi on -the Queen City, bound for the Mardi Gras celebration at New Orleans.

This .'was the insistence', largely American, that Germany anft France, must be compeiied^-with their historic differences still ,uri- reconciled-f-to conscript t h e m- selves into one army. This proposal had been advertise^ as the indispensable key to world security. All would be lost if it were not accepted and ' carried our by 1952, or maybe- by 1953; all would be won if only it were agreed to immediately and the recruiting ; of the German soldiers began. When "the .proposal came before the parliaments, it caused such, 8 rebellion in Germany and France 1 that Adenauer and Schuman were able to survive only by yielding on the main point. They No. one was prtpired, .fterefore for the delightful surprise 'of a meeting of foreign ininiiters who confronted with a demonstration' of the . realities of 'Europe today could show themselves to flexible'. so resourceful, jntl so wise. · .* · When the two parliaments, the German and the Fr*nch, had laid; down -the law, had .in fact assumed for themselv*! the power of \;*to on the European a: I rplIIC great w r o u g h t - i r o n *- gates guarding the eri- IranceMo Windsor opened into a straight tree-lined driveway almost broad enough to be called nn nvenuc. Far down at the end of.a rcd-and- ycllow tunnel forricd by interlocking branches and Autumn leaves I could see the house. It was a very big house, long, l o w - l y i n g , beautifully - proportioned, It looked solid and substantial, as If the builders--carefully placing brick upon brick- had intended it to endure for centuries, Centuriet had not yet passed but the house gave the impression of beginning to grow old gracefully. Ivy had.crept halfway to the roof. The shutters^ere pale blue, the frpnt door with Its huge antique knocker a shade in between white and cream. The driveway ran in a circle before the door. Going around this I saw on my right an expanse of lawn which seemed to run, sloping upward slightly, to bluffs overlooking Long Island Sound. Under and around a green-and-whlte garden umbrella on the lawn wai a group of people. I braked, glad that I had hired this smart blue convertible for the. occasion. , There came a cry, "Hello, there, Jim," .4n a'clear strong voice. A tall blonde girl detached herself from the crowd under the umbrella. She ran across the lawn. She could take long strides with :hote long, slim, tanned legs. The legs were highly visible, because she wore white shorts. I noted upswept bronzy hair, good shoulders and, presently, wide gray eyes with a hint of the She aail Ulo nr ear, "HI!

It was a successful conference but not because it succeeded in solving the problem which so nearly wrecked it. The conference'was successful because it managed to deal with the problem by putting the great interests of the Atlantic community far ahead of it. The cart, which has been ahead of the horse since the panicky summer of 1950, was at Lisbon put back of the horse where it belongs. This was unexpected. The - r -- . -Jrmy, the real question--which had become so' obscured--wai'define* sharply: is it true that the immediate rearmament.'of Germany --at. almost any' political price- is indispensable to the defense o{ the Atlantic community? The answer to this question was given in the parliaments in Paris and in Bonn. The French and the Germans said quite., emphatically that it was hot true. The foreign ministers recognized the verdict. They bowed . to ' it, some and .perhaps all of them with inner relief. Instead of involving- themselves In a sterile and. destructive debate, at Lisbon about how to recruit the. German divisions atoonce, they, brought forward into the center of 'interest, and of negotiation the decisive and far-reaching, interests of the Atlantic community as whole. · * * . * ' . Here was "something that really matters, which in truth is providing security^ against the threat of war, something which is not in ., the stage of controversy, and o£ blueprints, but is going forward unmistakably. It was a relief, indeed it was inspiring, to focus the attention of the world on the big project which is being success- and not to have to struggle world hasibecbme used tp a wooden diplomacy in which statesmen go on grimly and stubbornly with their mistakes, never willing or able to admit that they have changed their minds, and relying on (he declaration of great abstract principles to offset the consequences of their mistakes. ful, with the dark passions whfr.h were being aroused in Germany and in France, and everywhere else by (lie much tbo sudden, the much too urgent, ,th« much too · clumsy and inconsiderate insistence upon the Immediate recruiting of German troops. The Lisbon conference was a huge 'psychological success be-' cause it marked a return to political and moral relations. It enabled men to think more about their hopes--which are in the, .Atlantic community--than about their nightmares which are in the revival of German militarism. That is another way of saying that the civilian statesmen were --at long last--clearly in the ascendant once more. Dear Miss Dix: Do yoii think husbands should go out at night without their wives?
