Soviet Ruthlessness ? v ? MR. TRUMAN'S ATTACK World Situation Reviewed 'DOOR IS STILL OPEN' Washington, March l'i. Russian ruthlessness had brought &tout the present critical .situation in Europe, President Truman told a Joint Session of Congress to-day. He started a bitter attack on the Soviet Union by referring to the obstructive efforts of one nation, and later referred directly to Russia by name. 'Agreements obtained by the patient efforts of democratic nations, which could have furnished a basis for a just' peace, have been persistently ignored and violated by one 'nation,'' he said. 'Most of the world's countries have joined together in the United Nations in an attempt to build a world order based on law and not on force. One nation, however, has persistently obstructed the work of. the United Nations by constant abuse of the veto. That nation has vetoed, twenty-one pro posals for action in little more than two years, but that is not all. Since the close of hostilities...
