Those people many years ago had very slm- the editorial columns of The Nebraskan as the
pie things for which to be thankful but they pulpit from which we preach. No amount of
were basic. They thanked their God for good words or time will make people think unless they
want to, pray unless they feel like It, or be
thankful unless they're optimistic.
However, it seems right, in this world of ours
usually characterized by war, hate, dishonesty
end struggle to realize those things for which
we must be thankful. We cannot be thankful for
Korea but we can give thanks for a united ef
fort by the free nations of the world to stop Com
munism. We can't be thankful for the bloodshed be
tween the Arab and Jewish peoples, but we can be
thankful for the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza

denced Jn many diplomatic dealings, but -we can
be thankful for those persons and those insti
tutions whose goal is greater wisdom and understanding.
We can't be thankful for the homeless and
the starving for the conditions which produced
these situations, but we can be thankful for
people like the committee of University stu
dents that are asking Lincoln people to invite
40 students from foreign countries or from far
away to their homes for Thanksgiving dinner.

The first the very first thing John Foster
Dulles did in his new capacity as Secretary of State
under President-Elect Eisenhower was to call FBI
chief J. Edgar Hoover. He asked the FBI to assign
some of Its top men to make a thorough check of
his life. "There will be no taint of suspicion," he
said, "about the new State Department."
He Implies that there Is some taint of sus
picion concerning the present State Department.
Taint probably Isn't the proper word because the
junior senator from Wisconsin, the recently re
elected Joe McCarthy, made It plain to the
American people that he had much more than a
taint of suspicion. Unfortunately, some of the
American people fell for his wholesale smears of
State Department officials. To a dangerously
large section of the population, there was more
than a taint of suspicion.
Dulles' announcement, then, will be met with
cheers from many people. They will sigh and say,
At last we have a man with the moral fibre to
really clean that dirty State Department house."
At least one American has already made a state
ment very similar to this: the previously mentioned
Joe McCarthy. When Dulles' appointment was re
leased, the newsmen rushed to Joe to get his view.
McCarthy's view, since he was one of the most
violent critics of the State Department, was im
portant Joe surprised most people and came out
with a sugar-sweet endorsement of Mr. Dulles.
Unless McCarthy changes his mind, it looks
like one of the best things about getting a change
In Washington Is quieting down the constant
right-wing Republican screams about a pink
sometimes scarlet State Department. Of course
a GOP victory will probably open the way for
the Nevada Democrat, Tat McCarran, to take
over McCarthy's job.
It is extremely Interesting to note the great ex
tent which McCarthy's tactics and accusations have
made an impression on American life. Certainly no
one in either party has anything but praise for
Dulles' Intellect. Many people find it hard to agree
with him but he is respected for mature and well
thought-out decisions. Therefore, it is a rather sad
commentary when men of Dulles' calibre have to
recognize the power of men of McCarthy's calibre.
We say this because we cannot interpret the phone
call to FBI chief Hoover in any other way.
Dulles not only recognized the power of Mc
Carthy's smears on the State Department but he
thought it important enough that his first action
concerned it. The Nebraskan Is extremely glad to
see Dulles so interested in making the State De
partment "free from any taint of suspicion . . .
at the top, bottom or in between." But we do
feel that this .announcement was not too much
more than a political move. It might well be
