U. N. Volunteer Guard
To Fix Common Front
Only Way to Security
Free Nations Must Face
Realities or Perish,
Columnist Declares
By Dorothy Thompson
There is no doubt that unless
still free nations form a common
front for collective secunty most
will perish.
Yet each government, and peo
ple. naturally thinks first of itself.
Only those states will sacrifice to
protect others who are least im
mediately threatened—at present
the American nations.
Apart from the primary concern
with self defense, old habits of
mind also persist. The French
still envisage the Rhine as their;
frontier, though it would have 1
been wiser to have recognized a
frontier at the Dniester. The
European community does not yet
conceive of itself as one state with
one big inland lake arid one long
vulnerable land frontier. The
Atlantic community is not a polit- ■
leal union; it is only a coalition.!
Mobile Guard Needed.
If. within these realities, there
is to be mutual armed protection,
it seems logical that there be a
force direciiy responsible to the
protective league.
But Secretary Acheson's pro
posal to the U. N. General Assem
bly was the old idea of having
various U. N. members earmark
contingents of their national
armies to be on call if needed.
Korea has proved the ineffec
tiveness of this, which, from an
American viewpoint also is dubi
ously constitutional. I am not
aware that the American Congress
has ever passed a bill empowering
the President to dispatch troops
anywhere on earth for the defense
of any state attacked.
What is patently needed for
collective security is a separate
force, responsible to the collective
will, operating under U. N. deci
sions, as a mobile guard, with its
contingents stationed in the vari
ous critical areas of the world un
til :uch time as general pacifica
tion may be accomplished.
Essentially such a force would
be of a voluntary charactei. The
United Nations, as such, can con
script no one. It could, however,
rally and equip volunteers. In
such a case, the nationalities of
recruits would have no signifi
There would be no conceivable
objection to Germans or Japanese
joining such a force, as individual
per-ons. And two places where it
should be stationed are in dis
armed Western Germany and
Japan, to supplant present occu
pation armies.
Such a force should have one
allegiance, one discipline, and
one command, at the top, and in
the various theaters. Its oath
should pledge its members to at
tack no country, but always to
defend—as the Swiss soldier, un
der his constitution, is banned
from aggression and pledged to
Not Difficult to Raise.
Would it be difficult to raise
such a volunteer force?
I do not believe so. Today, j
thousands of young able-bodied
men, many with military training,
are unemployed in refugee camps,
homeless because of aggressions.
To them honorable activity is a
spiritual longing and necessity. A
U. N. police force would appeal to
Idealists. Since it would be the
first to take the brunt of unpro- j
yoked aggression it should be the
best paid, best equipped, most
highly honored force on earth.
Composed of free men, exercising
free choice, in the defense of the
weak, it would appeal to the nat
urally gallant.
In all armies the volunteer is
the most dependable soldier. And
the present situation is absurd!
Suppose a man wanted to join
the U. N. forces in Korea—pre
cisely because it is a U. N. defense.
He couldn’t do it! Shortly after
the Korean aggression, some
young Frenchmen appeared at an
official American headquarters in
Paris to enlist for Korea. There
was no way to take such enlist
ments except into the United
States Army, and the suspicion
was aired that what they were
really after was United States
citizenship—which, under present
circumstances, would seem a fair
Morale is decisive in any con
flict. A carefully screened force
of free men, operating by their
own decision, is politically and
psychologically the proper force
to oppose the conscriped armies of
slave states.

Marine League Rejects Role
In Sale of Truman's Letter
By the Associated Press
READING. Pa.. Sept. 30.—II
President Truman's famous letter
criticizing the Marines is sold as
a “collector’s item,” the Marine
Corps League will have no part
in the transaction.
Maurice J. Fagan, league com
mandant, last night “disavowed
participation in any 6uch scheme”
on behalf of the league and dis

was “surprised and shocked” at
the plan.
A price tag of $2,500 had been
pinned on the letter.
And in Baton Rouge. La., Adjt.
Tneus J. McQueen announced it
would be sold in Chicago to an
unidentified purchaser.
Said Mr. McQueen: “It’s
strictly a collector’s item and will
not be used for political purposes.”
But the money which was to
have been paid to owner Repre
sentative McDonough, Republican,
of California to whom it was writ

to the Marine Corps League.
In saying “no thanks,” Mr.
Fagan commented. “There is a

French Regret Directives of U. N.
For Forces to Gross 38th Parallel
By Constantine Brown
Some European countries, par-!
ticularly France, regret now the
broad directives given Gen. Mac
Arthur by the United Nations on
June 27 which
authorized him
to cross the
38th Pe •allel.
R ussia has been
put on the spot
by the spectac
ular victory of
the United Na
tions’ forces,
some diplomats
at the U. N.
General Assem
bly still fear the
possibility of a
serious involve- Con»t»ntlne Brown,
ment if our forces move rapidly
to the north.
They point out that the Chinese
Communists have not withdrawn
their divisions from the Yalu Riv
er positions and it is not too late
for them to intervene to save
Communist prestige in Asia.
Fear Delay on Troops.
The underlying reason why
there is a good deal of under
ground resistance to the crossing
of the 38th Parallel is, however,
the fear that such a military ac
tion would delay the sending of
at least five American divisions
to Europe within the next few
American forces have been fight
ing continuously since the end
of September. They need a
rest. Continuation of operations
in North Korea might require the
sending of newly-formed divisions
to Asia to give a much-needed
rest to the men who have been in
the thick of fighting for the last
three months.
Moreover, the unification of Ko
rea ana the subsequent holding of
free elections in an area which
will be filled with guerrillas and
Communist subversive agents will
require a sizable military force. It
is impossible to place the Korean
Republican army in control. Its
members still feel bitter about the
invasion from the north and the
cruelties of the North Korean
forces, and it would be only hu
man if they attempted to settle
many personal scores. Natural as
this feeling might be, it will not
promote unity and harmony,
which the other nations intend to
establish for the sake of a lasting
peace, at least in that section of
The supervisory military forces
whose minimum strength is placed'
at 60,000 men, must be provided
by members of the United Nations.
So far. however, there has been
little response to the Security
Council’s call to arms. Only 1,500
British troops are now in Korea.
A contingent of 4,000 Turkish
troops embarked last Thursday
and is expected to reach Pusan
some time in the middle of No
No Other Troops Ready.
Outside tnese forces which are
already on the spot or on the way
to Asia, there are no other United
Nations troops in readiness, even
for ordinary police purposes and
to keep law and order in the coun
try after the North Korean armies
have surrendered or crossed the
border into Manchuria or Siberia.
The Filipino and Thai detach
ments are r.ot ready yet. Nor are
the 5,000 Canadians and the
French battalion which was vague
ly promised. Although the end of
the fighting may act as a stimulant
for other members of the U. N. to
send military forces, it is highly
improbable that ail the forces
which can be made available will
exceed 25,000 men.
This all adds up to the fact
that a sizable American foice will
be needed to put into effect the
United Nations decision to hold
free elections and maintain law
and order in Korea for at least a
year after the end of hostilities.
Our European Allies also are
alarmed at the prospect that with
the end of their "police action” the
ardor of the American people for
war preparedness will diminish.
It is unlikely that Congress will
cut present military expenditures,
which contain provisions for an
expanded Army, Navy and Air
Force. But with the strain of ac
tual warfare removed, American
legislators may look at the general
situation more soberly and lns*st
that the European nations in
crease their efforts toward the
common defense.
The recent statements of Chair
man Connally of the Senate For
eign Relations Committee, urging
that Europe contribute more to
ward that goal than she has done
in the past, were taken as straws
in the wind by European govern
ments and particularly France.
Those who object to crossing the
38th Parallel say that if the U. N.
forces stop at the boundary there
will be no need for substantial
non-Korean forces. The southern
troops in their own territory will
be able to take care of any situa
tion now that they have the reces
sary military equipment and battle
training. The new divisions or
ganized in the United States then
will be available for use in Europe.
On the Other Hand
Democrats Unable to See How They
Gan Possibly Lose House This Year
By Lowell Mellett
The 82nd Congress when it con
venes in January will have Sam
Rayburn for its Speaker of the
House, just as now, and Joe Mar
tin will have to
remain content
with the role
of Minority
Leader. That is
the confident
predic t i o n of
the Democrats,
while Martin,
for the Repub
licans, says it
is too early to
make any pre
Democr a t i c
confidence rests
largely on a tow*n MeUett
careful check by the party’s Con
gressional Campaign Committee
with every Democratic incumbent
who may have any cause for
worry. The check was completed
before the Congressmen left for
their home districts. It includes
each candidate’s own estimate of
his chances, which is usually pes
simistic when he talks with the
committee, since he hopes for fi
nancial assistance if there is any
money to be shared. (This year,
as usual, there won’t be much.)
Majority of 92 Now.
The Democrats have a majority
of 92 in the present House. The
Republicans to gain control would
have to win at least 47 seats now
held by Democrats, while losing
none of their own. The commit
tee cannot find 47 districts that
it considers doubtful; less than
half that number, at the most.
And offseting these, it is con
vinced, are an equal number of
doubtful Republican seats.
Looking at the Congressional
picture as a whole the committee
grows positively optimistic. If
there is a general trend this year,
the committee believes, it is away
from the Republicans. The recent
election in Maine is offered as
evidence. In each of Maine’s Con
gressional districts the Democrats
made astonishing gains, although
they won no seats. The present
House has many members, Re
publicans as well as Democrats,
who were elected by narrow mar
gins. If the Democrats can in
crease their vote all across the
country as they did in Maine, a
long list of Republican seats can
be emptied.
Further indication of a satisfac
tory trend is found in increased
Democratic registration in most
States. Oregon is a prize example.
In the State as a whole and in
three of the four Congressional
districts, for the first time in his- j
tory the Democratic registration is1
larger than the Republican. The
Democrats hope to break up the
now solid Republican delegation
from that State.
Due to Various Influences.
Any general trend would be due
to various national influences: the
war in Korea, Truman’s current
popularity or lack thereof, high
taxes, economic controls, excite
ment over Communism, wages in
the industrial regions, prices in
the farming sections and the pros
perity of the average citizen. The
Democrats bank a lot on the last
named factor—the proportion of
the population able to buy new
cars and television sets.
The committee, however, thinks
chiefly in terms of individual dis
tricts. Just as an example, one
admittedly doubtful is the 9th
Ohio, represented by Thomas H. j
Burke, a CIO industrial worker
serving his first term. He is op
posed not only by Homer Reamy,
a three-term Republican Con
gressman whom he defeated two
years ago, but by another Demo
crat, running as an independent.
Jimmy Byrnes, now back in the
news, was given the blame by the
Democrats for Reamy’s election in
’44. As War Mobilizer, Mr. Byrnes
seized 50-odd war plants in the
Toledo region because of a strike,
notwithstanding that the strike
was on the vei*ge of settlement.
The consequent bad feeling in
labor circles, it is alleged, not only
elected Mr. Reamy but cost Roose
velt the State’s electoral vote and
allowed Senator Taft to squeak
through in his close senatorial
race. The bad feeling is gone,
but there is that independent can
didate, threatening to split the
Democratic vote.
So it goes—Mayor Impellitteri
in New York, for instance—but
after examining every doubtful
district in this manner, the com
mittee still comes up with a safe
majority of Democratic House
seats in the 82nd Congress.
