Transcript sidereel as "aggression" by the I nited Stales. In answer to a question concerning Generalissimo Chiang's statement to Senator Margaret Chase Smith that ln- expected U.S. moral and logistic support for an invasion of the Chinese mainland. Eisenhower replied: The t'liite-el States is not going to he a party n. an aggressive war. (If course, like so many other administrative statements ihis one can be variously interpreted. But the While' House issued no denial when lhe If ashington Post and the New ) ork Times together wilh mosl other newspapers. commentators and columnists took his reply to mean lhat the I nited Stales would not help ihe Nationalists lo liberate their homeland. In ihe inelegant language of Doris ITeeson. Eisenhower had "slapped Chiang. It was hard lo disagree wilh her lhat. in effect, the President had "recognized the sovereignty of lied China. TREATY FOR DEFENSE ONLY There hail in fail been little dotllil for some months past of our intention to aeeepl. if nol as yel lo "recognize, lhe Chinese Communisl conquest of China. This was made <-lear hy the Iitiii- of the Formosa treaty and hy lhe President's January 21 message to Congress in which he stressed the fact lhat: '"It is a treaty of purely defensive character." The lerms of the treaty make this fact all too clear. It nol only forbids "offensive mililarv operations hy either party from the territories held by the Republic of China" without mutual consent, bul etlso forbids the Chinese Nationalists to "remove" from Formosa uithe.iit our consent any of the arms we have- supplied. Mr. Dullc-" veuioiis statements have served lo make it yel more clear that "liberation" is no longer the objective of our policy. \s on November 29. 1951, he seiiei in a speech in Chicago that We should not "allow ourselves to he provoked into action which would he a violation of our international obligations"; and that "we heive agreed by the UN Charter to try to settle inter- national disputes hv peaceful means in such a manner lhat peace is nol endangered." All Ihis would he very line if OUT enemies thought likewise. Since they do not. it is folly lo imagine that lln- .-vi- elenee we continually give of our peaceful intentions will not embolden them to attack our friends or to continue blackmailing us. What lhe world is waiting for is proof thai wc can be counted upon lo stand by those who stand by us and that there is a chance lhal ours will be ihe winning side. Mr. Dulles e\ iilenily realizes this for, in his February 17 speech, he said: "A ure-at danger in \sin is the' fear of many non-Communists thai the- I nited Stales has no real intention of standing firmly fane 62 behind them. Already that fear has mounted to the danger poinl.'" DISASTROUS POLICY CONTINUED Unfortunately Mr. Dulles has to reckon vvilh others who also have the possibility- of influencing the Presidenl nnrl are giving him contrary advice. Truman weis the inheritor of lions,- velt's disastrous foreign policy ami can at leasl he praised for having finally skirled lo lake measures to stem the triumphant eielvemec of lhe Communist power. Bul Eisenhower, on lhe occasions when he lends an ear lo the so- called liberals who have maintained their fooling in lhe \\ bile' He.usc. seems in be Irving lo out-Roosevell Roosevelt in his desire for coexistence, if not collaboration, wilh lhe easily extended Communist empire in Europe ami Asia. Insicael of taking advantage of the agrarian crisis in liussia ami lhe unrest in the satellite countries lo compel the Kremlin lo meike concessions lo lhe free world, wc arc proclaiming our readiness lo give lhe Communists lhe breathing space they require lo recuperate and prepare for a future' eiltae k on us when they feed strong enough t" defeat us. Truman, whose Favorite game is poker, was perhaps belter qualified L. know when ein opponent is bluffing than Eisenhower who spends his leisure hours on the golf course. True lhat Truman, after taking lhe risk of resisting the Communists in Korea, was afraid lo slake enough lo win. lint Eisenhower seems not even lo realize' lhat a player who sens he will never risk his blue chips, however gooel his hand, musl lose in the end. COMMUNISTS WIN JACKPOTS (lui* Communist opponents win 111, jackpot every lime even il all they have in their hand is a pair of deuces, simplv because wc are afraid of risking anything, ever, anywhere in the world. Imagining lhal we arc s,, rich lhat we can etfford both to continue I..sine un, -e-lve-- and also lo stake oilier players too lacking in boldness ever to win a pot. wi' let ihe Communists lake' eill. again and again anil again. Today we arc no longer seeking even to "contain" the Communisl power. In- —Wld Harry S.

While Mao Tse-tung displays I nited States flyers captured in lhe Korean war lo lhe peoples of Asia ei- evidence lhal lln' I nited States is ei "paper tiger' which cannol even protect her own nationals, much less anyone else, we have been busy extracting promises from Syngman Rhee em<l Chiang Kai-shek that they will nevel allcmpl lo liberate their countrymen. \\ bile- proclaiming our policy eis one of "partnership" and citing the' wishes eef our "allies" eis the reason why we cannol pursue a be,Iel policy in line- vvilh American interests, wc do not hesitate I" exert pressure on the Koreans and Chinese i.. prevent them from fighting to Free their countrymen from Communi-1 slavery.
