THE KALONA NEWS @ U. S. Awaits Russian Game at " " Session By BAUKHAGE NewJ Analyst and Commentator. WNU Ser~, !~16:~e Street, N.W., Wa~gton, D. C. UNITED NATIONS, N.

The Nations meeting in two different places: T,he "a s sere bly, where I happen to be at this writ- ing, at Flushing, N. Y., and the Wallace that the United States can pursue some middle-of-the.road pal. icy and that East and West can thus move together without friction. There is no question, however, that the task that Secretary Byrnes has set out for himself admits of no ap- )easement. Draw Line on $o~et Expansion There have been a long series of books by experts and others, telling lust what is wrong with our foreign policy and what might have been done or might be done to improve t i. William Buliltt tried in a book (already mentioned in these col- umns) to show that Russia's dreams Baukhage of empire are nothing new, that the Soviets are merely taking up where the Czars left off. More recently Louis Fischer has come along with his "Great Challenge." Edgar Ansei Mowrer, reviewing this book in the Saturday Review of Literature, says that "if Henry Wal- lace had read and understood this book, he would l)ot . . . "push a completely unrealistic policy of up- peasement of Soviet Russia." Mow. rer probably would be the last per. son to claim that he was prejudiced in favor of the Soviet rule but h( is certainly familiar with his sub- Ject and his comment is worth con- sideration. As for Fischer. he laughs at the idea put forth by the R~sso- phlles that all we have to do is to assure Russia of her security, re- move her suspicions and fears of democracy, and then she will march shoulder to shoulder with the rest of us, Fischer says Russia's be- havior is explained not by fear of attack but by certainty that she will not be attacked. This belief seems to be back of the American action We today. It is to be hoped that during the negotiations at Lake Suc- cess, Russia's more specific objec- tives will be revealed as they Were in Paris. Fischer claims that 'qRussia is not" afraid and not sus- picious for two clear reasons: The British empire is in ~decline and on the defensive: America rushed from victory to headlong psychological and miLitary demobfliz~tion2' H that is true then it mus~t be made The broadcastL~g booth in which I sit looks right down on the first row of delegates, the United King- dam ,under my chin, United States next. then Uruguay, then Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

While the U.

Ignoring Molotov's political charges, Austin entered into a dis- ~TRlon of the proposals raised by u sslan: If the Russians wanted interna. tional disarmament, the U. S. would gladly oblige, provided an adequate system of inspection and other safe. guard~ would be established to guar- antee fulfillment of the program. Aft- er the last war, Austin recalled, the U. S. accepted the principle of dis, armarntnt but remained alone in carrying it out. If the Russians desired a report on the number of Allied troops in non-enemy states the U. S. aug. geared that the check be extended to former enemy countries as well (Such an~ all conclusive report would provide the world with an adequate estimate of Russian troop strength behind the iron curtain, said by Churchill to total 200 divisions.)
