In rubber bridge you seldom
deliberately overbid against sil-
ent opponents. In tournament
bridge, however, you sometimes
know that you need unusual re-
suits to produce a winning score,
and In that case you sometimes
bid the cards for a little more
than they're really worth, trust-
ing to luck and your good right
arm to bring the contract home.
Today's hand was of that na-
ture. South knew he didn't be-
long in a game contract. To be-
jn with, his hand was a slight-
ly doubtful no-trumper. More-
over, his partner raised to only
two no-trump, showing that he
lacked the strength to bid all the
way to game. But South also
knew that he needed a better
than average result, so he bid
the Impossible game.'
Incidentally, I should point
out that North's response of two
clubs was the Stayman Conven-
tion, asking South to show a
major suit If he bad one. South
showed the hearts, thereby deny-
ing that he had biddable spades.
Hence North went back to no-
West led the four diamonds,
and South won with the jack.
Declarer next cashed the king of
diamonds, followed by the ace of
hearts, and a low heart towards
dummy. Weaf***llowed dummy's
jack of hearts to win the second
round of that suit, but had to
take his king when declarer led
a third round of hearts.
The contract could be deefated
If West ever led clubs, but he
had no way of knowing that. It
seemed safe to lead the queen of
spades, as indeed it was. East,
knowing that he needed a club
lead from the West hand, should
have put up the king of snades
to make sure that he would not
eventually be stuck m the lead,
with a high sp'de. A* It happen-
ed. East made the fatal error of
Marines Best Army,
Navy And Air Force
In Rifle Matches
Marines competing In the re-
cent National High-Power Rifle
Championships and National In-
dividual Rifle Match won top
honors in\ all service rifle divi-
sion matches in which they par-
ticipated. Headquarters 15th Na-
val District revealed yesterday.
A total of 50 expert riflemen
from across the, nation, repre-
senting the Army, Naw, Air
Force, Marine Corps and Nation-
al Guard competed In the 1951
Matches sponsored by the Na-
tional Rifle Association held
September 27-30 at Camo Mat-
hews, San Diego, California.
Marines won first place in all
seven major-service events, in-
cluding the President's Match,
Wimbledon Cup Match. Marine
Corps Cup Match and Navy Cup
Match. The National Rifle
Matches were revived after an
playing the eight of spades..
South dropped the six of
spades to make the eight look
like an encouraging signal. West
therefore continued with the
lack of spades. Now declarer took
the ace of spades, cashed the last
heart to discard the ten of dia-
monds from dummy, and then
put East In with a third spade.
East had to lead a club, giving
dummy the king of clubs. That
card was the entry for the ace
of diamonds and the last spade,
both of which woud have with-
ered on the vine If anybody but
East had led clubs.

Of Jap Peace Parley
A spectator's "footnote to his-

the signing o the Japanese

last month was received on the
Isthmus today in a letter from *

In commenting on the pro-

The Czech woman delegate
thought she was Miss Soviet un-

the Reds' s.oeeohes was for Red
China, and she only mentioned
her country at the very begin-

Matter Of Fact
By JOSEPH ALS0P
THE STICK AND THE CARROT
BONN."We can do the Job without the Ger-
mans, if that becomes absolutely necessary."
This recent remark Is reliably attributed to
Gen. Dwight D. Elsenhower.
Presumably. Elsenhower thinks that, given
great air power and atomic superiority, the de-
fense of Western Europe without a German
manpower contribution is militarily feasible.
And In the peculiar atmosphere of this arti-
ficial political capital, the remark takes on great
For the demonstrable fact is that something
has gone very wrong with allied plans for a
West German defense force.
Consider the facts. It Is more than a year
now since Secretary di State Dean G. Acheson,
pushed and chivvied by the Pentagon, and
against the advice of able U. S. High Com-
missioner John McCloy. demanded immediate
At that time, the Pentagon planners, suffer-
ing from the delusion that the militant German
nation would spring to arms at the world of
command, were talking of an Important Ger-
man military contribution In a matter of
Yet now, a year later, the first German sol-
dier in the Western alliance is unlikely to put
on his uniform for at least ten months and
only then If all goes more smoothly than there trickery.
But what seems to have gone principally
wrong Is that the Pentagon planners, fascinated
like a rabbit by a snake bv the thought of
future German divisions, have fixed a rigid but
entirely unrealistic time-table for German re-
Thus the* Western administrators here. In-
cluding the extremely able U. S. High Commis-
sioner-John J. McCloy, have been robbed of the
flexibility required in negotiation.
All negotiation is a matter. In the end, of
the carrot and the stick. And because the Ger-
man politicians are convinced that the West
must have a German defense contribution at
any cost, the allied negotiators had no stick.
Logically, the Germans should be begging the
allies for the means to defend their own soil.
Instead, the Pentagon-planned program has
placed the allies in the position of doing the

rationality displayed by such a man as the

Allied cause. i
WASHINGTON. -Exactly one month ago a Czech railroad
train pilotad by a daring anti-Communist engineer, dashed across
the border into Germany.
It was promptly called "The Freedom Train" and its pas-
sengers, considered an omen of a new surge against Communism,
received a great ovation.
... Tnlrty-one of these Czech passengers elected to stay in the
Thirty days passed, at the end of which I received a cable
from the International Rescue Committee, a private organisation
headed by General "Tooey" Spaatz, that 21 of these Czech pas-
sengers on the Freedom Train were held up by bureaucratic red
tape with "men, women, young girls, children now living in dark
attic room, no privacy, no decency, no heat, facing months of
What happened was that the Canadian government had
generously ottered to give haven to these escapees from behind
the Iron Curtain, after which an overzealous Canadian security
officer who could not even speak Czech had detained some of
them as "security risks."
I telephoned the State Department, whose officials seemed
distressed but Incapable of prompt action.
I also telephoned the Canadian ambassador, who got busy
with his government.
As of this writing, however, the Czech Freedom Train pas-
sengers who rebelled against Communism are still snarled up in
red tapethough doubtless the publicity they have received will
cause them soon to be released.
Their case is typical, however, of what is going on all the
time along the Iron Curtain.
It Is estimated that 1500 escapees who never get publicity1
take the plunge across the Iron Curtain every month from Rus-
sia, Poland, Czechoslovakia and other captive countries.
Whereupon they are clapped In German and Austrian jails,
become the associates of prostitutes and common criminals, and
finally begin to think that. If this is the free world, they were
better off under the Communists.
As a matter of fact, many of them do go back.
It would shock most Americans to know that 2.000 Russian
escapees who obtained work in the coal mines of Belgium recent-
ly voted to go back to Russia.
The supposed free world, they voted, did not offer the great
freedom they had supposed.
Blame for this tragic situation can be laid directly on the*
doorstep of the UB. Army, Central Intelligence, and the State
Ail three have divided responsibility for these escapees, but
all either work at cross-purposes or do not work at all.
The United States government has the authority to handle
all those escaping from behind the Iron Curtain, but most ef
the time it ducks the responsibility.
Here is what happens. When an especially interesting tscapee
comes in from Russia as did the former counselor to the Russian
Embassy in Iran las> winter, UJ3. agencies immediately pounce
Counter Intelligence wants him. So does Central Intelligence.
So also does Military Intelligence.
They haul and maul the poor escapee back and forth between
all three, fly him to Washington to talk to the high brass in
the Pentagon; then, because of the McCarran Act and because he
was once a Communist, they fly him back to Germany.
They interview him for hours on end. the interviews being
conducted by amateurish youngsters, week after week. And after
a couple of months of this, they drop him like a squeezed orange
all the juice gone.
He is then left to get a job on the Germany economy where
there are about a million Germans already out of work; or he
can go to seed in a refugee camj).
Naturally, many of these escapees wish they were back' in

Obviously also, some have fled because they are common
However, there remains a large proportion which could be
extremely useful to the Allied cause in the following manner:
1) Giving Information as to what is happening behind the
Iron Curtain. This could be of immense value to the UB. milit-
ary, to the Voice of America and dealing with our entire propa-
ganda program. *
2) Recruits for the U.S. Army. While the U.S. Army Is now
able to accept only 2,500 recruits of foreign nationality, there is
no reason why this cannot be enlarged. Our Army has been en-
larged and the proportion of foreign recruits could be also. Most
escapees volunteer to enlist in the U.S. Army, and if properly
screened there Is no reason why they could not serve as well as
American youngsters now being drained from our economy.
WARS DONT WIN
3) Finally, escapees could be organized into groups eventual-
ly to take over Iron Curtain countriesif and when the time is
ripe. This is what the Kaiser did in 1917 when he sent Trotsky
and Lenin on a sealed train from Switzerland into Russia; ami
there is no reason why the pattern of political change set in tvT7
cannot be reversed. _
As a matter of fact, Russia has never been conquered by
force of arms.
Napoleon tried it and started the beginning of his downfall.
Hitler tried It and his defeat at Stalingrad marked the turn-
ing point of World War H.
The Kaiser tried It and in the end had to resort to political
However. West Point does not teach "revolution."
It teaches the conventional forms of making warbig land
armies and artillery. Only belatedly did West Point even get
round to teaching aerial warfare.
This plays right Into Russia's hand. For big land armies arc
Never can we outfight her limitless resources of manpower If
we depend on land armies alone. This is picking the battle ground
where the enemy Is at his best.
Meanwhile modern warfare has gone forward, not only, to
atomic power but to psychological warfare and the science -ot
winning peoples to a more friendly point of view.
This Is where the steady stream of those seeking refuge" in
the free world comes in.
That Is why the prison cells and concentration camps into
which they are thrown now constitute our most tragic national

And the best private guess here is that, un-
der present conditions, Western Germany will
not contribute more than about eight rather
thin divisions by the end of 1953 hardly a
In short. In the time of great danger Im-
mediately ahead, the job will simply nave to
be done "without the Germans."
Meanwhile, in the view of some very able
men here, it Is time to have a good hard look
at what has gone wrong.
Manv things have gone wrong.
For one thing, the effectiveness of the Soviet-
Communist "unity" line has been vastly under-
estimated In the West, a matter which will be
examined in a later report.

With this sort of internal political pressure
to deal with, it Is not surprising that negotia-
tions between the High Commissioners and the
brilliant, aging Chancellor Konrad Adenauer
move sluggishly from deadlock to deadlock.
The fact is that until both a large stick and
a juicy carrot can be made clearly visible to
the Germans, the German rearmament protect

Gen. Benjamin Menndez and
other retired army officers now
under arrest were merely volun-
teer "iron* men" for the test.
Here is t.ie. play-bv-play story
of what r?.,:ly nappened:
Resentment against the Per-
ns. long smoldering among the
"elite" in all three branches of
the armed forces, flaied into ac-
tive opposiion when the dicta-

Real !a".l is that this attitude
was more social than political in

families and have bitterly resent-

The threat of Evitas ascend-
ancy to th? vice presidency, with
the ever-present menace that she
might step up to rule the coun-
try if anything happened to her
husband, was more than this
group could swallow.
As revealed r>y this writer sev-
eral weeks ago, influential
spokesmen for the army deliver-
ed an ultimatum and Eva was
forced to elinqulsh her ambi-
For Pern, this meant that his
worst nighlmare had come true.
He has always been aware of
the "social" enmity to his poli-
cies in the ifficer corps; but, un-
like the dmlomatic service, he
could not afford a wholesale
purge among the military, for
fear of weakening it beyond re-
Instead, the "strong man" tried
to buy loyalty with extravagant
pav raises and a has' of soecial
privileges. For instance, officers
could import rationed luxury
items dutv-free. then resell them
at a fat profit
- Pern also sought to intro-
duce "reli.ihle'' elements into
the corps of all three services:
but high educational standards
which con id riot be lowered
without bringing on immediate
revolt, practically check-mat-
ed that attempt.
So. when the armed forces
turned thumbs down on Evita's
candidacy. Pern realized the
situation A.i.s critical.
What he die- not know then
was that leaders of the Demo-
cratic (Conservative! Party,
chiefly representing the nation's
wealthy landowners and power-
ful cattle barons, had been se-
cretly conferring with rebellious
officers of the army, navy, and
air force, planning a follow-up
to the ultbnatum on Eva.
While the Radical and Social-
ist parties combatted Pern
openly duiing the last five years,
the Conservatives adopted a pas-
sive role, presenting no candi-
dates for Presidential or con-
gressional elections but occasion-
ally criticizing the regime.
Now, they have decided on ac-
tionand '.he armed forces have
responded to their overtures,
something the other parties nev-
er could a-:hie\t.
The strategy agreed upon by
the civilian and military con-
spirators called for a test of
strength to throw the Perns
off balance and alert the pub-
lic to the existence of anti-
administration sentiment in
the armed forces. Such a move
might not make sense else-
where but is strictly tailored to
Argentine national psychology.
General Menndez. a retired
officer witn great prestige in all
the services, ottered to front for
the active military men involved,
during tin first attempt.
By drawing lots, 20 per cent
of those committed to the
movement in each service were
assigned to take part Immedi-
ately; it was understood that
only in the unlikely event of a
prompt and overwhelming re-
sponse among the civilian pop-
ulation mid the bulk of the
military reriels go into action.
However, even this limited plan

Meanwhile, Pern continues in
the dark as to just who leads the
conspiracy against him.
He soon discovered that his
first guess vas wrong, which was
why General Menndez was giv-

This also accounts for the a-
brupt release of Socialist leader
