EXIT AUTRIA. The curtain has rung
down. Vienna, once a leading influ-
ence in the Holy Roman Empire, and center of
the Austro-Hungaian Empire and of post-war
Austria, is no longer the capital of an indepen-
dent, or even an autonomous state. Just as the
Habsburg Monarchy succumbed to fore in 1918,
so too has gone Austria. And symbolic of the
new order, in the cafes, Viennese waltzes have
been silenced. Martial German airs blast forth
instead. Yes, the curtain has rung down. But all
Europe sits shivering as the thought sinks in
that the drama may not b over. This may be
but the close of Act I.
The swing of European politics seems regular.
Before 1870, France maintained a hegemony over
Europe. Her might was broken in the Franco-
Prussian war. From 1871 until 1896, Bismarck
built a system of alliances to maintain the peace
of Europe and safeguard the spoils he had taken
i long years of war. France, seeking Alsace-
Lorraine, was isolated, with the rest of Europe
tied together on the basis of either maintaining
the status quo or partitioning some of the weaker
states.
This complex system of alliances was too dif-
ficult for Bismarck's successor to juggle. The
combination broke down into what became a bal-
ance of power. The Triple Alliance opposed the
Entente Cordiale. This "balance" safeguarded
peace in Europe until 1914. In 1919 the German
hegemony was gone. And Germany was left
isolated, surrounded by a status quo agreement
among the nations of Europe. The sole difference
between the situation then and in 1896 was that
Germany had been substituted for France and the
new status quo agreement was called the League
of Nations.
A fence was built around Germany labeled,
"Don't touch." But Hitler took down that sign
and smashed that fence. He put Germany on
the rampage. And with the fence about Ger-
many broken it is obvious that just as at the
turn of the century, the only thing that can
safeguard the peace of Europe is a new balance

of power.
Some call this new balance "collective security."
By that today they mean a lineup of the "democ-
racies"-Frarice, Britain and the Soviet Union, to
prevent further aggressions by the fascist nations
-Germany and Italy. This terminology, this
ideological battle fought on the sidelines of power
diplomacy, throws a haze about the true Euro-
pean scene.
The balance was on the way to formation, and
might have prevented the Austrian coup When
Schuschnigg's announcement of a plebiscite pre-
cipitated German action. As Professor Ehrmann
of the history department pointed out in Sun-
day's Daily the plebiscite was announced "before
the London, Paris, Rome talks had reached the
point where Mussolini might have been induced
to exert a moderating influence on Hitler."
Officially Italy's Grand Council of Fascism has
given its approval to Adolph Hitler's Nazification
of Austria. But underneath, next to Czechoslo-

million Germans residing in the Italian Tyrol,
it is evidently contrary to Italian interests to have
Austria assimilated into the Reich. Italy's safety
lies in an alliance with Great Britain and France
to maintain the status quo in Central Europe.
Until such an agreement is negotiated the Rome-
Berlin axis must be maintained. For without
the "nuisance value" of this axis Italy is a sec-
ond-rate power in European diplomacy.
Italy has been thrown closer to Great Britain
these lazt few days. German troops on the
Brenner Pass will undoubtedly make Italy more
anxious than ever for support against Hitler. In
this agreement Italy seeks recognition of Ethiopia
and advancement of credits. These things Great
Britain can well afford. The knotty problem is
still Spain.
Professor Carr of Scotland, who spoke he/e
last week, maintained that no Anglo-Italian.ac-
cord could be reached until Italy withdrew from
Spain. This is a moot question. But it is cer-
tain that if Czechoslovakia's independence is to
be strongly guaranteed by England and France,
Italy must be disengaged from the Berlin axis.
Were this to happen, France could promise
armed aid to Czechoslovakia in the event of Ger-
man attack, direct or indirect. Great Britain
could promise military support to France and
Italy could promise at least a benevolent neu-
trality. Russia has neutralized herself as a force
in European diplomacy by the recent "purges."
Whether she would take an active part in the
formation of the agreement is doubtful. She'
might accede to the pact afterward or sit back
and wait until the situation crystallized further.
It did seem possible earlier that the pressure
of public opinion in France and Great Britain
might have forced the Chamberlin and Blum
governments to take action before conversations
with Italy ripened. But with Blum finding it im-
possible to form a national union government,
such action, although still possible, seems less
likely despite antifascist rioting in London.
It is certain that without a previous agreement
with Italy action by England and France will be
much weaker. The progress of Anglo-Italian
relations in the next few weeks may hold the
key to the peace of Europe for a great many
years.

'The Life
Of Enile Zola'.
THE SELECTION of The Life of Emile
Zola as the "most outstanding" pic-
ture of the year by the Motion Picture Academy
has been received with general satisfaction by
critics and public. Judged on its merits in com-
parison with other American films, the choice
seems a right one.
Nonetheless, in spite of the many excellent
qualities of the work, its defects are perhaps
more significant than its achievements. The
picture was based on one of the greatest of con-
temporary biographies, Matthew Josephson's
Zola, and His Time. Granting the impossibility
of completely encompassing a work of the magni-
tude of Josephson's in a two-hour motion picture,
and admitting the consequent necessity of con-
centrating on a single episode of the narrative,
it is yet undeniable that the film failed in its task,
if its task was indeed the faithful presentation
of an incident of history.
The Hollywood version of the Dreyfus case
was a badly discolored piece of history at best.
The fact that Dreyfus was a Jew, and therefore
singled out as an ideal victim for the army
clique, was practically omitted. Zola's. interest
in the case was aroused, according to the film, by
sy pathy for the beautiful Mme. Dreyfus. The
true 'social significance of the whole case, and
Zola's quick recognition of it, were entirely
skipped.
The trial of Capt. Dreyfus has not taken its
place in history simply because an innocent man
was sent to Devil's Island, just as the conviction
and 20-year imprisonment of Tom Mooney is not
important simply because Mooney is perhaps
innocent of the crime for which he is charged.
The Zola film was a masterpiece of production,
direction and acting, but neither the spirit of its
great subject nor the significance of its plot
was utilized or apparently recognized by those
who created it.

II TEFORUM)
The Coffee-Pepper Bill
To the Editor:
As a result of some journalistic accident be-
tween Mr. Kiell's writing and the printing in
Sunday's Daily of an interview with me on the
National Arts Conference and the Coffee Bill, the
emphasis intended was exactly reversed. The
view arrived at in the Conference, and my own,
is that passage of the bill without modifications
would be quite as unfortunate for the bill to be
defeated.
There are eight bills now pending to establish
federal support of the arts. After consideration
of all of the bills, discussion in the Conference
was focused on the Coffee-Pepper Bill (actually
two identical bills in the House and Senate),
The Coffee-Pepper Bill is the most adequate
in scope, and has the strongest organized support,
which means it is either the most dangerous, or
offers the best opportunity for accomplishment.
The Coffee-Pepper Bill would establish a per-
manent Bureau of Fine Arts on the WPA Fed-
eral Arts Project's set-up. Objection to the WPA
foundation is the basis of a very strong opposition
to the bill.
The National Arts Conference in its resolutions
for amendment of the Coffee-Pepper Bill en-
dorsed the principle of utilizing the notable ac-
complishment of the WPA Federal Arts Projects
for the creation of a Bureau of Fine Arts, rather
than scraping the existing organization and start-

Ji fe emn o e
H eywood Broun
A Washington correspondent dropped in for
the day, and so we took him around to the Mu-
seum of Natural History and the Planetarium.
As we sat around the table he said politely, "That
was a very ignorant column you wrote about the
President's last conference."
"And I like your stuff very much, too, when I
get around to reading it," I replied in my best
South Brooklyn manner. He
bowed from the waist, and I
did the best I could.
"Among other things." said
the gentleman back from the
front, "you were inclined to
be a little facetious about a
young woman from some
radical publication who
asked the President some
tough questions. In the first
place, she didn't. At least, none any more search-
ing than several other women from other news-
papers have asked. If you were a regular at press
conferences you would learn that women ask the
best questions. You would also know that the
President isn't questioned enough by people who
really want to get some word for their readers
on New Deal objectives.
"In the days of Hoover there was a censorship
on queries by the President himself and his sec-
retarial forces. There is a censorship now, but of
a wholly different kind. It is imposed by the
newspaper men themselves. Of course, I'm not
referring to the rule that no visiting fireman
should be allowed to butt in with inquiries. It
would be pretty silly if you, or anybody like you,
dropping in for a week-end, should have the im-
pertinence to use up time by asking something
silly which had been discussed at length at the
previous conference."
The Rules And Regulations
"I have never opened my yip at a Washington
press ,conference," I answered stiffly. "Once, as
we were filing out, Mr. Roosevelt said, 'You've
taken off about fifteen pounds, haven't you?'
And I said, 'Yes, Mr. President.' I hope that my
radical remarks broke none of the conventions
established by your correspondents."
"Now you're getting warmer," replied my
friend "That's what the press needs in Wash-
ington-more radical reporters. I used to be a
single-taxer myself, but Washington, no matter
what the nature of the administration, tends to
make newspaper men conservative. It's more
comfortable and you get invited to much better
dinners.
"In a great many cases a Washington corre-
spondent isn't really what you would call a re-
porter. The head of a bureau is, in fact, a city
editor. And in addition to that the Washington
representative is to some extent an ambassador
from the editorial page of his paper rather than
its news columns. Now, don't get doctrinaire on
me and assert that you can name publicatior
where there is no perceptible difference.
Members Of The Old Guard
"The point I make is that a very small group
of newspaper men ask 95 per cent of all the
inquiries directed at President Roosevelt. And a
lot of questions are framed largely on editorials
written and on editorials to come. Franklin.
Roosevelt is much less influenced by newspaper
opinion than he was in his first term, but he is
still very much influenced by newspaper men. He
likes them, and he wants them to like him.
In a press conference he is talking to the
nation, even though it is through a filter called
off the record.' Any study of his radio addresses
and his press conferences will show that he talks
much more progressive stuff on the air than he
does -in his newspaper sessions. The trouble is
that he is too much aware of the studio audience
at a press conference. He tempers the wind for
working Tories. He wants to get his laughs, and
so he kids along with the Lawrences and the
Sullivans. He has learned to take printed raps

without wincing, but he is still sensitive to a pass-
ing frown on the face of any 'aisle seat' reporter
at his matinee."
"And what is your remedy?" I asked.
"He should either ignore the studio audience
or push his jokes a little to the left, even
if he has to wait longer for his laughs. I'm hop-
ing for the best, Mr. Roosevelt has just seen 'Pins
and Needles,' and I understand he liked it."
No Truce In This War
Renewed energy and increased support must be
put into the war against tuberculosis. The im-
petus gained in fighting the white plague carried
us through the worst years of depression without
apparent loss of ground; we were warned, how-
ever, that the effects of malnutrition might not
show until the economic worst was over.
Statistics completed for 1936 disclose an in-
crease over 1935 of 1,500 deaths resulting from
tuberculosis. It is the most notable recession in
America's winning crusade in more than a decade.
In 1920 the death rate for the disease was 108
per 100,000. By 1933 the rate had been pulled
down to 54.3. Now it is rising again. Half the
states in the union showed an increase last
year. Arizona, a national refuge for the tuber-
cular, showed the high advance of 11.8, ob-
viously owing to the fact that many sufferers, in-
fected in other states, had fled to it as the last
resort of hope. -Chicago Daily News.
