The Outside World
Red China Protests
The Chinese Communist hierarchy renewed protests against what
it termed U.S. aggressive moves but gave little hint of their own
moves in broadcast talks hailing the fifth anniversary of their treaty
Mai Tse-tung, top Chinese Communist, and Premier Chou En-lai
asserted that if "imperialists" wage war, "we, together with the
peoples of the whole world, will certainly wipe them clean from the
face of the globe."
At the same time, Communist forces have occupied the evacuated
Tachen Islands and are considered to have the initiative for the time
being. The remaining Nationalist outpost islands, especially Quemony
and Matsu, are expected to be the next trouble spots.
Lodge Hails Foreign Policy
Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., U.S. ambassador to the United Nations,
told a Lincoln Day dinner the foreign policy of the Eisenhower Ad
ministration is enabling the free world to "settle down confidently
to the long haul" toward strengthening world peace.
The strongest element of that policy, Lodge told the Pennsylvania
Republicans, has been President Eisenhower's "fight for Formosa"
declaration. "This courageous and timely move is our best insurance
against war in that area," he said.
Convention Dates Debated
Republicans have given up in attempts to find a suitable date in
September for their presidential convention. However, National Chair
man Leonard Hall indicated he hopes state election laws will be
changed to permit an August meeting.
Democrats have announced they will open their convention in
Chicago's International Amphitheater July 3, unless state laws are
changed before then, in which case the date would be Aug. 13. Certi
fication requirements in certain states at present stand in the way
oi later conventions.
Surplus Wheat Problem Studied
Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson told a news conference
.Monday he was searching for a
problem. Present farm programs of production controls, flexible price
supports and subsidized exports are not solving the problem, he said.
The Secretary said he is requesting the National Agricultural Ad
visory Commission to review the situation and study various proposals
for its solution.
Legislature Delays Salary Bills
The Nebraska Legislature moved Tuesday to group together all
salary increase bills and hold thorn for action later in the session.
The group also killed LB 45, which would have allowed state depart
ments to withhold pay for purchases of federal government savings
bonds. It failed to revive LB 160 which would have set up an examin
ing board for surveyors.
Hoover Proposal Criticized
The Hoover Commission's proposal for a highly skilled and politi
cally neutral group of administrators to run the government was
anything but warmly received in both houses of Congress. Criticism
mainly centered around the opinion that it was not practical. One
House member stated bluntly, "Congress just isn't going to pass this."
