Bul Sec- ritar\ of Defense Forrestal, who was determined to block the Communisl eul- vance, and who won over Presidenl Truman, was driven to an early grave. His hard policy of armed resistance to communism «a~ replaced b) the sofl poliev of economic aid to Europe. From 1945 to 1952 the power of the - ee iel ( nion spread easl and west, until ii covered one-third of the world and pul millions ol people in bondage. The conflict between freedom and -leu er) was nol losl in ah;i or in Europe.

EROSION IS APPARENT Uread) erosion is apparent. We constant!) hear il dinned in our cars thai it is all right for us to defend Formosa bul very wrong to defend Quemoy and Matsu. Thai is as if lhe 1 \ -lioiibl seiv lo the 1 nited States, "You will reduce tension with the Soviel I nion if miu give up \lee-k.i. which is nearer the Sen ie-i border than ii is to the I nited States.

A cease-fire would free the Red armies for a new attack on Indochina. \ cease-fire would give further recognition to the Red Chinese, ll would tell the desperate people on the mainland the) had no hope.
