New York Times Soviet affairs specialist. Guesi on Fmis Forum's ANSWERS FOR AMERICANS. Hi. Schwartz exchanged views with program panelists: George Hamilton Combs, news commentator and former con- gressmani Professor Charles Hodges of New York University, and Author William Buckley, Jr., with Hardy Burt as moderator. Is communism winning the propaganda battle abroad?* Dr. Schwartz: The box score on the propaganda war is not a simple one to make up. We are doing better in some sectors than we are in others. But if you force me to give an over-all judgment, I would say the Communists are winning the propaganda war and have been for some time. Mr. Buckley: I agree with Dr. Schwartz; they are winning the propaganda war. I weeulcl not point so much ■o Indochina or to Guatemala or to North or South Korea, or anything of that sort to illustrate this point; 1 would point primarily to England. I think that the very fact that the English have shown themselves prepared to negotiate a modus vivendi, a peace with the So- ' id I nion, indicates nothing more than that Russian propaganda has been successful. That is to say, it's been the first purpose of Russian propaganda since the last war to try to persuade its neighbors — and members of the free world in particular that they don't want war. I believe of course that this is false. I believe that they are prepared and planning to wipe out England as a constitutional monarchy. And I think that the very fact that the majority of the English people — including the most prominent members of the Conservative party, in particular Mr. Anthony Eden — are, in effect, willing to take the Soviet Union as being in good faith in these negotiations, indicates the most stupendous and climactic victory of Communist propaganda. (Continued on Page 22) USIA IS WOOING AND WIN NINO Western Europeans, says United States Information Agency Director Theodore C. Streibert, former radio executive who became the agency's first director after its separation from the State Department over a year ago. Mr. Streibert answered questions posed by reporters—Mary McGrory of the tWashin^tttn Evening Star and John J. Madigun of News- week's Washington Bureau—and REPORTERS' ROUNDUP Moderator Robert F. Hur- leigh. Russian vs. American Propaganda Mr. Madican: Mr. Streibert, are we losing the war of words with Russia? Mr. Streibert: I don't think we can lose it as long as we have truth on our side. We can expose these lies and mis- representations, and we are doing it actively. You can't say that we are u inning or losing, in my opinion. There are trends, and this is not a military encounter where there can be a complete victory or complete defeat. These trends arc either working for or against us: and in the world today, as you well know, there are trends that are not favorable to the United States. On the other hand, we are, as was consummated in Paris recently, making substantial ad\ ances. —Wide World Pho.o "Winds of Freedom" SOVIETS REACH MASSES MORE EFFECTIVELY, , n Eugene W*. Castle, past president and Founder of Castle Films, who toured Europe for three months investigating U.S. information services in twenty-one countries and has testified before three congressional committees on his findings. Appearing on ANSWERS FOR AMERICANS, Mr. Castle discussed his opinions with panel experts: Devin Garrity, New York book publisher; New York University Professor Charles Hodges, <md Professor John K. Norton • >f Columbia University Teachers' College. Hardy Burt was the program moderator. Do the U. S. Government information agencies abroad present an accurate picture of life in the U. S.?* Prof. Hodges: I think you have to ask the question in terms of history. I'm sorry to go back, but it's the time, the place, and the emphasis. In New Deal \nurica in the '30's, you got a propaganda picture which was that of a discouraged nation being rescued by the Roosevelt administration. In the war period, you had another problem of propaganda; and you tackled thai in an entirely different way. In the postwar period, you had two broad phases Truman's campaign of truth and Eisenhower's "New Look," which extends even to the United States information services. They have been (Continued on Page 26) Page 21 fEWS, January^
