Dictators Could Be Stopped By Bluffs
If Democracies Act, Sas Prof .Jobin

A few strong bluffs, well placed by
the democracies, and backed by suf-
ficient force of arms and by actual
active preparations for war, would
put an effective halt to Europe's dic-
tators. That is the opinion of Prof.,
Anthony J. Jobin of the French de-
partment, who has recently returned
to Ann Arbor from a stay of four
months in Europe.
Professor Jobin, in discussing the
present European situation, point-
ed out that the democracies are do-
ing a lot of talking, but that the dic-
tatorships are doing most of the act-
ing. In that connection, he de-
plored the democracies' general lack
of unity, both within and among
themselves, as compared with the
solid mutual suport which the dic-
tatorships lend each other.
Professor Jobin includes the Unit-
ed States in this group of "do-noth-
ing democracies," and referred to
the partisan attack on President
Roosevelt ater the state department
took its recent strong stand on Amer-
ican foreign policy as proof for his
gtatement. This country alone, he
declared, could have forestalled the
recent European crisis merely by ex-
pressing a definite official stand
against the dictatorships.
During his stay in France and
England, Professor Jobin was sur-
prised to find that the average in-
dividual in those countries takes a
much less: serious interest in his -na-
tion's foreign policy than does the
average American citizen. For ex-
ample, the movement in France to
support the Spanish Loyalists was
limited to. a large extent to the poor-
er classes; and in England only stu-
dents and extreme liberals took part
in mass demonstrations against
Professor Jobin suggested that the
French people, so close to so many
enemies, and confronted with inter-
national problems on every hand, are
becoming wearied by the numerous
European crises, and are assuming a
rather dangerous fatalistic and apa-
thetic attitude toward the whole sit-
He was surprised at the childish
trust which the French ,public placed
in General Franco, his ability to oust
fcfreign elements in Spain after the
war and his supposed friendly atti-

tude toward France. This same
trust is placed in England's Cham-
berlain, who, according to Professor
Jobin, is looked upon in France as a
kind of "omniscient savior."
France realizes, observed Profes-
sor Jobin, that Germany is her most
dangerous potential enemy. Both the
French and English governments are
deathly afraid of General Goering's
powerful air fleet, and this fear, he
believes, is the chief cause for the
democracies' recent capitulation at
On the other hand, the French
people are inclined to laugh at Italy's
war threats. They still think of Italy
as the rather weak and inconsequen-
tial power it was when it joined the
Allies in 1915. Professor Jobin sees
this as a very dangerous attitude, in
view of Italy's actual formidable war
However', the French, bound by ra-
cial ties to the Italians, deeply resent
Il Duce's recent war threats, and feel
that Rome's axis should terminate
in Paris instead of Berlin.
Professor Jobin, having been right
on the scene during some of France's
most serious crises, has observed the
attitudes of the French people at each
succeeding war threat. After Mu-
nich, for example, although there
was considerable public indignation
at what was called a "sellout," a
great feeling of relief that war had
been averted pervaded the country.
