Transcript ellil" l9Si NO AMERICAN REPRISALS FEARED No one who understands thc terribly effective measures used to suppress rebellion by the Communists ran believe lhal anv people can liberate itself without help from outside. Thus Dulles' statement lhat "liberation normally forties from within." must have reas- Mired Moscow and Peiping that they ran continue to repress, or exterminate, the resistance forces in their far-flung empire withoul fear of American reprisals. Once again, as during the sec- "nd world war. we are saving the Soviet "overnment from tlle consequences of t« crimes emd follie's. Today, as yesterday, we fetil lo understand either the weakness or the "rength of the Communists or their Unchanging aims. Instead of pressing °llr advantage during the struggle for Power which followed Stalin's death, President Eisenhower, on March 10. '953, made what the New York Times described as the "most conciliatory white House statement on I l.S.-Soviel relations since the start of tbe Korean far." Ihis weis the' occasion on which he ""served that the Soviel leaders would '"'ver be met "less than halfway-" and •wo said that he would not do anything s° "provocative" as starting a move in *e Inited Nalions to brand the Soviet nion as an aggressor in Korea. More than a year later, on June 3d. ,'54. the President told a press con- '■"i'iic(. i},at he "would nol he a partv to - - •le, any treaty which makes anybody •laves." Optimists could lake comfort r°rn this statement. The pessimists toted that on the same occasion Eisen- th, ;ower had again slated that the hope of '.'' world lay in peaceful coexistence . "n the Communists, which is surely "{■compatible with nonrecognition of '''"' right to bold and exploit millions "f Wave's. ■ MASSIVE RETALIATION— OR APPEASEMENT?

Rv the fall of 1954 Republican .and Democratic anti- and pro-Eisenhower editors, columnists and commentators were agreed that the objective of administration policy is simply peace in our time. Drew Pearson wrote on November 29, 1954: Tin- decision is: Whether to accept the olive branches dangled from the Kremlin for coexistence with Russia- olive branches that arc urged upon Ike by ChurchilJ and Mendes-France; or to accept the advice of his Pentagon advisers and force a flat Bhowdown with communism in the Far Easl — a showdown could lead lo a preventive war. So far. President Eisenhower has taken lhal lhe I .S. will pa) a good price for a period of peace and quiet. Just now they're oul to cash in again." DULLES SAYS "WHEN" John Foster Dulles, whose appointment as Secretary of State had seemed to herald the inauguration of a poliev cognizant of the aims and methods of the Communisl power, said on November 29. 195 J: Of course we look anxiously for signs of real change in the attitude of international Communists. We hope thai the day will come when they will renounce the effort to rule i!i»' world bj methods of force, intimidation and fraud. When that day dawns we shall greet it eagerly. —Wide World Photo Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek (second from left) entertains as luncheon guests Admiral Felix B.
