Is to Avoid
Defense Secretary George C.
Marshall has announced that U.S.
policy in Korea is keyed to a
determination to avoid an atomic
war without appeasement.
The policy to which Mr. Mar
shall is referring is: "to inflict
Buch terrific casualties on the
Chinese communists that the
enemy will be forced to accept,
e negotiated peace."
Marshall told the senate inves
tigating committee on the dismissal-
of Gen. Douglas MacAr
thur that it might cost Americans
years of patience, courage and
poise to attain this negotiated
The alternative to these years
of patience courage, and poise,
according to Marshall, is the holo
caust of all-out war.
The foregoing is cited as the
administration's answer to Mac
Arthur's charge that it has no
policy in Korea except to prolong
a bloody stalemate.
Positive is what President Tru
man and Marshall have termed
the policy to deprive aggressors
of reward but at the same time
to do nothing that would broaden
Marshal had testified that
MacArthur's proposals for carry
ing the war to the Chinese reds
outside Korea would risk war
with Russia and destruction of
western defense projects.
Atomic War Is
President Truman does not
want to be responsible for atomic
warfare wiping out some of the
nation's major cities.
The nation's leader announced
this in a speech to the country
An atomic war with Russia is
"a real possibility" but it would
be more likely under the policies
of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, the
Mr. Truman declared his posi
tion in a speech which was broad
cast nationally, before a meeting
of civil defense officials.

RUSSIAN EXPERT Dr. Alex Inkeles of the Russian research
center is talking to Dr. William Swindler, president of Kappa
Tau Alpha. Dr. Inkeles was the recipient of Kappa Tau Al
pha's award for his book, "Public Opinion in Soviet Russia: A
Study in Mass Persuasion," as the best study in the field of
journalism for 1950.
Public Opinion Is Tool
To Reds, Says Inkeles
Genuine free expression is not
possible unless the members of
the society are free and inde
pendent, stated Dr. Alex Inkeles
in an address at Love Library,
Inkeles, associate of the Rus
sian research center at Harvard,
spoke on the role of public opin
ion and mass communication in
Soviet Russia. He said that Bol
shevists consider public opinion
to be the "instrumentality to fos
ter the goal of achievement of a
communist or socialist society."
Think For Masses
The role of the party. Inkeles
said, is to act as the thinking
body for the masses. The party
has established elaborate meth
ods of controlling the means of
communication so that the peo
ple will become indoctrinated
with socialist beliefs.
Emphasis has shifted from poli
tics to the necessity of getting out

"Well, now the first thing
about job seekers that I always
notice is that they are looking for

you're talking about.
"I find it essential o find out
just what they can do before I
hire anybody. I advise anyone
looking for a job to be able to
answer that question.
"So be ready to demonstrate
and prove your skill. I remem
ber the case of one charming
young lady who came to me
wanting a job. When I asked her
what she could do, she was very
eager and willing to show me
everything, ah, that she could do.

Inkeles stated that repetitive
ness and constant claims on the
individual are characteristic of
Communist agitation. Social proc
esses are news, not human inter
est stories. He said they have de
veloped a standard where one
thing is eant while another
thing is bAd.
Dr. William F. Swindler, direc
tor of the School of Journalism,
presented Inkeles with the an
