Not. too much hope, it is true, for ho says "il would he disastrous if the fnvnralilo sijnis and (levclopmcnl« record- ad in this report were to put any mind at SUSP, or to create a sense of adequate sc- :urity, for there is no real security yet Achieved in Europe; there fa only a heKin- ninfr." But on the other hand he also says that there is no excuse ffir defeatism, and points mil the progress made in all aspects of security. The u n i t y of NATO must, the (fencral repovls. rest ultimately on one thing--the eiiliiilitpiird self-interest of each parlici- palinif n a t i o n , lie makea it clear that "fun'Jamoni.all.v, and on a long-term banis, wich i m p o r t a n t geographical area miiBt be defended primarily by the people of that r-ppion. The nvrrnjfc citi/en must therefore foci t h a t lie has a vital stake in the fight for freedom, not Hint he is a bystander or a pawn in a struggle for power . . . Kunda- mpiil:illy, \ve are f i j f h l i n g the battle of fii'lividi'iil freedom for all. Before all men nnd lief ore t h e world, our policies must be piich as lo inspire confidence in our Rtrpngth and determination, and trust in our fairness. This is Ihe moral foundation without which any military effort, any ox- pcmlHurc in lives and treasure, is fruitless." Modern civilization, the general tells us. and truly, creates more and more interdependence among nations. Ho explains t h e vreat need for "joint and vigorous defense action," and traces the steps in or- ftanmnr a force to defend Europe in case of a t ' a c k by the Russians. The u n i f i c a t i o n of Knropc he stresses as Die wav to success against Communism. "This Is Ihe central goal," he says, "and the only possible way of crsHtinir reasonable security, and insuring, at the same time, t h e improvement in living standards I hat charaf'ieyixe western civilization. Therein lies t h e real answer to the threat of Communistic inundation." General Eisenhower reports in detail what has been done towards organizing the nations of Western Europe, and declares, "Our goals are simple; they are honorable; thev can be achieved. Why, therefore, should there be confusion in the ninids of millions of our peoples as to the basic aims of our defense program, the necessity for il. and the urgent demand for their own individual efforts?" "In a world where powerful forces are working tirelessly to destroy the freedom, individual liberty, and dignity of man, we cannot for one moment delay our advance toward security. The task will require constant watchfnlness, hard work, cooperation, and sacrifice, but what we do now can grant us peace for generations," he assure?.. Thus does Ihe leader of the organization to oppose possible Communist aggression in Europe see the picture of the start of a workable defense. His words should give us courage--and the determination to make the effort needed to bring success to the whole undertaking. The Reds seem to have renamed the Autobahn the a u t o ban. Merry- THE WASHINGTON ^-Go-Round By DREW PEARIOK Washington--The steel cables which once roped off the sidewalk In front of Ulair House are now removed; so also the little guardhouses once occupied by the White House, police. They were placed there Immediately after two Puerto Rlcan fanatics ran down Pennsylvania /venue, their guns blazing, mowing down two guards In an insane, abortive attempt on the life of the president. Today people ctn walk along the sidewalk of Pennsylvania Avenue without going out in the street to avoid the barriers. I3ut the root reason for the attempt on tin; president's iifc has not been removed. In fact, security measures to protect his life and that of the governor of Puerto Rico, Luis MUMOZ Mnrin, were tightened last week because the new constitution of Puerto Hico is now up for debate In Congress. Gov. Muno?. Marin, who was attacked in San Juan simultaneously with the attack on Truman, now is under special tfuard in Washington, ami the name of the hotel where he i* stopping is kept a secret. The attempts on the lives of the governor and the president were made by Puerto Itican fanatics who demanded that Puerto Rico bo completely Independent nf the United States. They bitterly opposed the new constitution which sets up a model, middle-of-the-road piil- nerthlp with the U.S.A., as merely continuing Yankee rule. Simultaneously, from another group, the new Puerto Rlcan constitution has been under fire. This group, not fanatical in the physical, but almost fanatical in its desire to preserve the statuj quo, is in the House of Representatives. After, a bill was passed by both houses of Congress permitting Puerto Rico to adopt a new constitution, and after the carefully drafted constitution wns overwhelmingly adopted by a plebiscite a! the Puerto Rlcan people, it wns suddenly blocked in the House last week by GOP Congressman Charley Halleck of Inuiiiu * * * Halleck. frequently called "Two-Cadillac Charley," because he came to Washington a man of mqdest means and suddenly blossomed out with two Cadillacs, was rather vague about reasons for opposing the Puerto Rlcan constitution. He didn't like the fact that it prohibited child labor, though tin- United States docs, too; »nd he also objected to section 20 which sets forth the Puerto Rican goal of a job for every man. Other Republicans, equally conservative, disagreed with Halleck. Congressman "Doc" Miller of Nebi-aska, a strong MacArthur booster and a student of the Puerto Hlcan constitution, pointed out that It would nol have permitted seizure of the stool mills or takinp; over newspapers. "Do you object to the fact that It would prn- vcnt the government from seizing the steel mills?" asked Congressman Miller. "Do you object to this ban against wire-lapping'.'" Ilallock had no convincing answer. His friend, Congressman Fred Crawford of Michigan, another conservative Republican, also championed the constitution, but the gentleman from Indiana continued to object, not only to the constitution, but even to permitting a vole on It. Halleck wanted to bottle the bill up In the Rules Committee, thus stifling free discussion Several Dlxlecrats supported him. Thus, while the extreme radicals of Puerto Hico arc ready to assassinate the president and Governor Munnz Marln If the constitution is adopted, the extreme reactionaries in Congress are rcady'to assassinate the constitution. What the Inttor don't understand is that the entire Latin-American world Is watching Congress to soe whether we renege on our pledge to work out a commonwealth partnership with the Puerto Rlcan people. Note-- Later, several Republicans persuaded Halleck at least to permit a vote on tiie constitution, nnd he receded from his opposition to a vote. But one GOP colleague remarked: "Herbert Hoover nnce proposed a chicken in every pot and two cars in every garage. Today Halleck has two Cadillacs In his garage, but is opposed to letting Puerto Rico express its hope of a job for every man." * * * · When the Senate finally voted down the question of statehood for Alaska last winter. Sen. Clinton* Anderson of New Mexico walked across the Senate floor to fellow Democrat Bob Kcrr of Oklahoma and remarked: "You're going to regret that some day. Bob. That ·vole will come back to plague you in your race for the nomination." Inside fact was that Senator Kerr had made a deal with Southern Democratic friends to trade his vote against Alaskan and Hawaiian statehood in return for their support on oll-and-cas legislation. Kerr is a big oll-and-gas man. But what Senator Anderson knew was that the people of Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Hico, who can't vote, but can nominate, deeply resent the wny they have been kicked around by certain U.S. legislators; so their delegates at both conventions hope to support those who have befriended Ihem. On the Democratic side. Senator Kefauver is the only,leading candidate who has consistently championed statehood and the rights of island people. He even took a long trip from Iowa to Washington in order to be on hand to vote On the Republican side, Taft voted to pigeonhole Alaskan statehood.

Baltimore's crowning social event every year Is the Cotillion. Francis Bcirne, in his new" b'ook, "The Amiable Bnltlmnreans," tells ot one Cotillion just after the firsl World War lhat extended guest cards to two young out-of-towners. When they arrived however, it was discovered that they were garbed in luxcdos inslead of white- lics-and-lails, and the horrified doorman denied them admittance. The Iwo young men were dismayed bul nol permanently thwarted. Their names were Henry H. Luce and Briton Hadden. A short time laler they founded Time Magazine. And today Cotillion queen would not jump at tho chance to be glorified in Mr. Luce's other magazine, Life? * * * Illinois' doughty Colonel Duffy phoned a hospitalized crony to ask how his operation had turned nut. "Great," said the friend--a bit weakly. "The nurse did a soft-shoe number into my room, waltzed me off to the operating chamber, and then the head surgeon cut in." * * * In the elaborate country estate of a squire who had collected millions of dollars but nary a book, authors John Gunther and the late Sin- clair Lewis once found themselves co-guests at luncheon. It was the summer when Lewis's "Kingsblood Royal" was Number One on fiction best-seller lists and Gunther's "Inside U.S.A." occupied a similar spol on all non-ficlion compilalions. Somebody arose to observe, "It isn't often you'd find the authors of the two most popular books in the country dining at the same board. I propose a toast to Messrs Lewis and Gunther." The host regarded his two guests with new respect and exclaimed, "I'll be darned! I didn't know you fellows wrote books!" * * * A notorious ham actor passed away at his appointed hour, and a surprisingly big crowd turned up for the funeral services. Ed Wynn counted the house and murmured to another honorary pallbearer, "If he could have known he'd draw BO well, he'd have died long ago!" Questions And Answers Q--Where did the Weimaraner breed of dog originate? A--Developed by Germany's Court of Weimar, it was recognized as a breed in 1810. The breed is closely controlled by a council and an owner mugt be accetable to the court to even buy one. There are only about 1500 In this country. Q--Is it true that vanilla Is made from orchids? A--Yes. Vanilla is the name of a group of climbing orchids. Q--Why were no United States naval vessels built wider than 110 feet until after World War A--So they could move through the Panama Canal.

And .Stephen isn't really a recluse. Ille'i here somewhere this afternoon. Would you like to see him? I know he'd enjoy meeting you." Rosamund d a r t e d toward i group near one of the windows. "Stephen! Do* let me Interrupt for a moment There's a friend of mine here whom I'd like you to mecL" Basil had spent too much time in hospitals not to see at a glance that Stephen Lawrence was a man chronically 111. He had the winnowed look of someone who endures pain. It wasn't altogether matter of frail body, sunken checks, thinning hair and faded blue eyes. It wasn't even Ihe lightness of his breathing, the slowness of his motions nnd the gentleness of his manner. It was rather his singularly sweet-tempered rnille and his look of detached serenity. He was like paper which has burned nway so slowly that the dead ash retains the shape of solidity yet actually Is BO fragile that It will crumble to dust at the flrst touch. · · · 'TDK two men had hardly exchanged a I r e o 1 1 n K when Yorkc came back with Manhattans «nd new arrivals claimed Rosamund's attention. "llocamund docs like to pretend people are chessmen to be pushed around and made to play her game for her, hut she needn't have bothered this time. 1 k n o w all about it.* "AD about what?" "Duggun. When we left Ziro- mer's last night Rosamund came home, but I went on to the Stardust Clt. I've got Insomnia, so I spend a little time at the club every night after midnight to MC how t h i n g s are going. Zimmer called me there after you and the inspector left him." "Whyr" ventured Basil. Yorke shrugged. "I'm supposed to have .Influence." "Why didn't he call Canning?" "He did. Zimmer is thorough. I told him even Canning can't control the papers. Zimmer is sure the Duggan business has nothing to do with him and he's afraid it will hurt his practice." The red ot Rosamund's painted cheeks and lips caught Basil's eye. She was talking to Giccla on the other tide ot the room. Baill thought of the vampire legend-the "living dead," refreshed and rosy when they are gorged with the blood of the living. The gathering had reached high tide sometime ago. Now it was ebbing and in a few minutes there were only two other guests left besides the Willing! -- Stephen [.awrcncc and a girl. Only then did Rnsil recognize her ai Lawrence's daughter, Pordlta. She wore wine-red velvet that brought out the pastel delicacy of lirr coloring--silvery blonde hair, apple blossom skin. Hut there was something wonting In her pretti- ncits. The pink mouth was too aoft, ;he mouth of a sleeper or a child. The eyes were ton empty ot all Interest In the world around her. r fnanner was charming--qulot hout a trace of shynem. No ffct a p r o d u c t of elaborate ralnlnf and expnulva education. Intellectually sh« could have been 29 Or H), hut physically and emotionally she wai Ilk* an tnlwfedi child rather than young woman. Gisela looked up at Basil with a smile. "She's been telling me the most interesting things about her work in a settlement house. She teaches painting to children after school." 'I don't teach, really!" Even Perditn's voice was, immature, treble and thin. "I just hand them pieces of wrapping paper and old jam jars of poster paint and turn them loose. They have a wonderful time. The only happy time in their whole day. They hate their schools and they hate their homes. Sometimes I wonder what they will be like when they grow up." Yorke laughed shortly. "They'll be like me. I was slum bred. Yorke is an abbreviation of some Slavic name that immigration officers couldn't spell In the nineties." · · · DOSAMUND had turned to Law" rence. "Did Dr. Willing tell you what happened to Duggan last night?" "Duggan?" Lawrence was puzzled. "Who's he?" "The little man who was announced as Dr. Willing last night at Max Zimmer's." 'lie was a private detective calling himself Willing," explained Basil. 'And do you know," added Rosamund, "just a few moments after he left Max Zimmer's, this poor little man, In perfectly good health, collapsed and died?" Perdita sprang to her feet, face paper white as only a very fair skin can be when it is drained and bloodless. "In good health, yet he --died?" Ha was p o i s o n e d by some opiate, according to the papers," said Rosamund. "Probably codeine." "I take codeine myself," remarked IJiwrence. "Almost anyone might have some." Basil saw the whites of Pcrdl- U's eyes as her eyeballs rolled up under the lids. He caught her as ler knees buckled. Gisela took :ht girl's head In her lap, stroked Mr forehead. Stephen knelt beside her, chafing the cold hanrii, calling his daughter's name softly. By WALTER LIPI'MANN (We print below further cx- cerpls from two lectures on public opinion and foreign policy in the United States by Mr. Lippmann which he has just delivered at Oxford arc! Cambridge Universities in the Sir George Wai- son chair of American hislory, literature and institutions, which is administered by the Sulgrave Manor Board, London.) When we put ourselves In the position of making up our minds about what lies ahead, we move into the realm of speculation and argument. It is the essence of the matter that our policies are not formed but are jn the process of rather than as sepasate stales, that we could have entered) the postwar negotiations to make th* peace treaties and to establish the United Nations. Why we did not do this is a lone and complicated story, and much of it is still obscure. But v.'hat I have been saying w»s proposed and pressed upon our governments. There were men on both sides of the ocean who argued, lhat the Atlantic community should be consolidated prior to a . settlement with the Soviet Union about the future of Germany, prior even to the organization of the United Nations. The proposals were rejected. being formed. All I can do here is i The y were held to be a departure to describe in broad outline the I fl '° m . tne y were held to b « in concourse which I believe we can best fl , ict wjth, the Wilsoman princi- take. We were on the right course, as I see it, during the war -specifically, between 1942 and] 1945, in the period between Mr. Churchill's visit to Washington immediately after Pearl Harbor and until the death of Roosevelt and the defeat of Churchill in 1945. During those years we had 2 close partnership, one might call t an organic alliance, which man- neace in the Western world--managed it for what we have come to call the Atlantic community. The Atlantic community had its combined staffs, its combined boards, its unified commands, and perhaps most important of all its agreed diplomatic actions. The At- anlic community had a foreign lolicy. It was affiliated with the Soviet Union for the purposes of he war. For want of a better word T use the word a f f i l i a t i o n , 'he relation was certainly not a jartnershlp. It was nol really r,n lliance. Il was a kind of co-bel- igerency among rival arid not riendly greal powers who, until hey had been attacked by the ame enemy, had jusl aboul man- ged to co-exist. The Atlanlic community was af- ilialeil also with China not much nore inlimately or candidly than 'ith the Soviet Union. These kinds of decrees of pnrt- crship, alliance and a f f i l i a t i o n vere not invented a priori. They rew out of the realities of our josition and the necessilies of the truggle. Our greal mislalte, I would say, s lhat we did not found postwar, olicies upon Ihese realities and j ecessities. They represented Ihe: rue structure and relationship of ower and interest in the world that we are living in. They showed that struclure, nol as it mighl have been designed in theory, but, as experience was showing that structure to be. Had we done thai, had we made the wartime structure of relations the foundation of the postwar system, had we made il plain before the war had ended that we weru | resolved that the Atlanlic partnership was to continue and was I to endure, then it would h a v e : been as the Atlantic community, i pies of a universal society. Mr. Hull was then the secretary of state, and Mr. Hull was a dii- ciple of President Wilson, more orthodoxly Wilsonian than President Wilson himself been. Moreover, Mr. had Hull ever had played no important role in the partnership by which the war had been conducted. Yet he was Pres- iu'unl Roosevelt's main, and in fact his indispensable, liaison with the Congress of the United States in war policy. In Mr. Hull's mind, the mere notion of maintaining the Atlan- lic community after the war was over and of entering the United Nations as a community, was a vicious heresy--a violation of the Wilsonian commandment against alliances, against spheres of influence, and against the balance of power. We plumped for what was, as I have said, the internationalism of the isolationists. In their conception of the world, when it is pure nnd ardent, when they have not been pushed into compromises with the hard substance of things, there are no legitimate entities between national states on the one hand and the universal society on the other, belwcen,.the atom and Ihe cosmos. The whole drift and impulse of their doctrine, moreover, is to make more and more national states out of the larger existing political units, to propagate new states by fission, and thus lo populale Ihe universal society with an ever increasing- number of feeble governments. That this plunge into unmiti- pnlcd univcrsalism was the wrong course lo take in 1945 became clear in 1947 and 1948 when, finding it necessary to set up the Marshall plan and 1 the North Atlantic security pact, we tusned back to the Atlantic community. In doing that we were admitling that the postwar policy of 1945 had been a painful and a costly detour, and that we must now work our way back lo Ihe right road. After the detour jnlo universalism, we are now t back on the main road, and I think 1 may say that increasingly our interests in the Atlanlic community are tending lo be the deciding- consideration of our foreign policy. Dear Miss Dix: Have you any plans or suggestions for a reconciliation? After eighleen years of marriage, my wife and I have been separated for two years, divorced for one. Causes of our difficulties were financial conditions, her relatives and my poor health. My health has now improved and I am employed at a good salary. I However, though I'm sure i*y wife still loves me, she refuses to sec me and has also refused to sen a promienl minister who was willing to try to effect a reconciliation. We were happy before; I'm sure we could be happy again if she would only listen to reason. Daniel K. Answer: Your wife's attitude leads me to suspect that you have omitted something; she apparently has been deeply hurt in the past, and has now raised a wall of de- fonsu to insure against a recurrence of the difficulty. ' You know best what may have bothered her, and the only recourse is to set about a campaign to convince her that conditions have changed. A revival of courting days may bring an assurance flf happiness. Make every effort to see her yourself, rather than I trusting this delicate mis«ion to a third party.
