Battalion Editorials Page 2 THE BATTALION WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 1954 McCarthy-Stevens Squabble Hides Important Issues While the whole world looks to the United States for leadership, leading representatives of our government wrangle in a pitiful spec tacle being aired daily on television and radio. In the midst of the McCarthy-Stevens controversy sits Army Private G. David Schine, a key figure in the investigation. Whether or not this private had special priv ileges and considerations is one of the points being hotly argued. Another is whether Secretary Stevens contemplated removing the Army command er of Fort Monmouth because of a talk to staff officers concerning college subversives, or because the commander praised Sen. Mc Carthy’s investigation work: Both sides yell “liar” as each issue is brought up for discussion, and there is no telling when or how the investigation will end. But while senators and military leaders gather around tables and glare at each other, the Geneva conference and the Red drive in Indochina receive secondary play in the news papers. The Geneva conference may determine just how far the United States, may go in support of Indochina, and whether American boys will be called on to fight there. In Indochina, Communist-led Vietminh troops are being poured into the battle against wavering French forces that may collapse under the weight of sheer numbers. Our prestige in the Far East might rise or fall in the decisions reached in the Geneva conference, but the attention of the Ameri can people is directed to the Washington hearings where the question seems to be, “who shined Schine’s shoes?” Perhaps the only way to stop the non sense is for the people to start a letter and telegram barrage in an effort to “clean up that mess in Washington.” Board Approves Economics Head The appointment of Dr. Clark L. Allen as professor and head of the economics department has been approved by the board of directors. Allen has been in the economics department at Florida State Uni versity since 1949.
