Primary Lesson

In Internationalism
A WAR which had as its goal the
formation of a strong international
federation-strong enough to maintain forever
the peace of the world-would indeed be a war
worth fighting. It is upon the assumption that
the present conflict has such a goal that many
liberals base their support of armed intervention
by the United States.
We are assured that with Hitler once beaten
our nation would have the power, the prestige
and the intelligence to form a world organiza-
tion of this kind and make it work. Led by men
like Prof. Frederick Schuman of Williams Col-
lege, these well-intentioned liberals have the
greatest confidence that the American people
learned their lesson from the League of Nations
fiasco. They believe that a majority of Ameri-
cans, profiting from the experiences during the
last 20 years, now realize the necessity of a strong
international federation with the power and the
will to suppress would-be recalcitrant nations.

Japanese Pressure
In South America .. .
PAIGNS for inter-American coop-
eration against Axis penetration of the Western
Hemisphere, Japan remains determined to exer-
cise economic pressure on South American coun-
tries in a last attempt to drive a wedge between
the Americas.
As Brazil's best cotton customer, Japan wields
an important economic influence over a nation
having a pressing cotton surplus athat cannot be
relieved by trade with the United States. Japan-
ese purchases of cotton in 1940 fell to 78,000
long tons from 125,000 long tons in 1939, and the
threat of further decrease is used as a weapon
to frighten a more amiable attitude toward Ja-
pan from the Brazilians.
THE ATTITUDE Japan objects to has three
aspects which are closely interwoven with
inter-American cooperation. The first of these
is an immigration law discriminatory against the
Japanese. The Japanese contend that the two
percent quota on 200,000 Japanese residents of
Brazil is insufficient. Some observers believe
this complaint to be largely a matter of face,
since it is doubtful if Japan could supply the
emigrants if a larger quota were granted; but
face is extremely important to the Japanese, and
under present circumstances special efforts
might well be made to supply a larger number of
Secondly, Japan is sorely vexed at the Brazil-
ian law which will ban foreign-language news-
papers 'after July 31. Portuguese will be the only
legal language for publications, and the Japanese
protest thatfew of their colonists understand
Portuguese. There may be other reasons for
protest, also.
THE OTHER ASPECT of anti-Japanese atti-
tude in Brazil is in certain export license
rules which prevent the transshipment of certain
materials, particularly machine tools, now re-
stricted by the United States. More than ever
Japan needs the goods which the American gov-
ernments are withholding. Since economic
pressure on the United States would have little
effect, Brazil is regarded as a possible depot for
trade in American goods.
This somewhat feeble attempt of Japan to
gain an economic foothold in America is indica-
tive of the much more efficient activity of her
Axis partner, and brings out the reality of the
economic problem that cannot be solved by po-
litical parleys and exchanges of culture among
the Americas. It will be difficult for South
American nations to ignore the comparatively
easy solutions to their economic problems offered
by the Axis if the United States can offer no
solution at all.

Party Jealousies
Cause Delay ..
PARTY JEALOUSY continues to ham-
per the progress of Michigan's gov-
ernment. The GOP majority in the State
legislature this week sent the latest of the Ad-
ministration proposals back to the Committee

WHERE Schuman and his followers make their
mistake is in forgetting that some people
never learn. They have allowed wishful think-
ing to cloud their otherwise clear and reasoned
outlook. While their ideal and their goal are
highly commendable, their optimism is quite un-
founded. It is too bad, but it is so. For proof
we need only examine the recent actions of our
A few days ago that legislative body had an
unexcelled opportunity to show just how much
it has learned about the necessity of interna-
tional cooperation. By demonstrating that they
were at last ready for an "all-out" effort to ob-
tain Pan-American unity, the members of Con-
gress could have illustrated that they would per-
haps be willing to enter upon a program of
greater world integration following the present
war. Their dismal failure to do so is one of the
most severe blows the liberal-interventionist
cause could have received.
The immediate problem in question was whe-
ther or not the Navy should be allowed to pur-
chase Argentine canned corned beef. This has
been a sore spot with, Congressmen for years.
The majority of them have consistently refused
to admit the advisability of such a transaction.
They have done so despite the fact that beef
from the Argentine is high in quality and less
expensive than domestic brands. More important,
however, is the harm this attitude has done to
Pan-American harmony. It can hardly be said
that Argentina has looked upon us with too fa-
vorable eyes in recent years.
TOW that unity in the Western Hemisphere
has become perhaps the most important
phase in the defense of this nation, it would
seem (if the Schuman-liberals are correct in
their assumption that the United States has seen
the error of its way and has decided to follow a
policy of world cooperation) that there would be
a head-long rush to right the existing situation.
However, the House recently passed an amend-
ment to theeffect that no Argentine beef may
be purchased by the Navy. The provision was
barely defeated in the Senate by a vote of 33 to
32, with Vice-President Wallace being forced to
cast the deciding ballot. What the conference
committee will do with it is, of course, unknown.
This is, perhaps, a small incident. Yet it is
important in that it indicates a characteristic of
the American people which the liberal inter-
ventionists overlook. Americans are prone to
talk a great deal about making sacrifices to
achieve an ideal, and then when the test actually
comes to somehow or other back down.
THUS, much is said about unity and coopera-
tion in the Western Hemisphere, but when it
would perhaps entail a temporary hardship on
the domestic beef industry we all of a sudden
discover that there are some things more im-
portant than a strong, united front against possi-
ble Fascist aggression. Would events not follow
an identical course when the scale is no longer
hemispheric, but world-wide-when not only
cooperation, but federation is being asked?
A world organization with any appreciable
strength would necessarily call for many sacri-
fices on the part of every member nation. State
sovereignty would have to be surrendered. Trade
barriers could no longer be allowed. Each na-
tion would be forced to disband any semblance
of an army or navy. /
of the United States would be willing to ac-
quiesce to all of these commandments. A coun-
try which is unwilling, in the midst of a dire
national emergency, to sacrifice the profits of
one industry in the interests of common Parh-
American defense cannot be expected to change
over night. It cannot be counted upon to make
much greater sacrifices in the attainment of a
rather visionary ideal, no matter how desirable
that ideal may be.
It would seem, therefore, that the liberals who
are advocating active intervention for the United
States are doing so under the influence of an
illusion-an illusion born of a desire to brin
lasting peace to the world, and nurtured by the
belief that everyone desires peace as deeply as
they. Should that illusion become reality-
which is not likelyin the near future-the stand
of the interventionists would have much more
strength and appeal.

since it would have done away with the present
property ownership or parentage qualifications
for school electors. Any otherwise qualified
elector, by this bill, would have been able to
vote in school elections, except where bond
issues were involved.
Certainly all voters should be able to vote on
questions regarding education. The old argu-

Dr" Peros
RRbertSAe i
WASHINGTON-To insiders, the story behind
the clattering headlines of labor strife is two
sharply divergent sets of basic conditions:
1. Determination of CIO leaders, secretly di-
rected by John L. Lewis, to use the vast defense
program to entrench the CIO in mass produc-
tion industries, and to break the unyielding
anti-union opposition of such die-hards as Henry
Ford and "Little Steel's" Bethlehem and Re-
2. The jurisdictional jealousies of warring
AFL craft unions.
N NO MAJOR DISPUTE recently delaying na-
tional defense has the real issue been hours
or wages. It has been a tangle over jurisdiction
of union recognition.
Thus Defense and Labor Department officials
have been up against- brain-busting complexities
of bitter factional hatreds, weak AFL control at
the top, leftist obstructive machinations and a
politics-motivated leadership in the CIO. And
on the other side, they have faced hard-boiled
employers, determined to make no concessions,
regardless of the cost.
been a certain amount of covert anti-labor
sniping by certain $1-a-year die-hards in the
Defense organization.
Knudsen, Hillman, Stimson, Knox, Patterson,
Nelson, Stettinius, Forrestal, have had no trou-
ble working together. They have had differing
views, but they have cooperated harmoniously.
But some of the subordinate $1-a-year master-
minds have engaged in occasional under-cover
pot-shooting which hasn't helped the men at
the top.
Bieg John Lewis
Scholarly Phil Murray has the title of presi-
dent of the CIO, but real CIO ruler is the same
John L. Lewis who bossed it until last November.
MURRAY never makes a move without con-
sulting Lewis. When Roosevelt asked Mur-
ray to recommend names for the National De-
fense Mediation Board, Murray first conferred
with John L. and at his urging submitted the
names of Murray and Tom Kennedy, United
Mine Workers secretary-treasurer, who, like
Murray, is under Lewis' thumb.
Despite widespread CIO demand for their
elimination, Murray has retained Lee Press-
man, general counsel; Len De Caux, publicity
director: and other leftist Lewis henchmen in
key CIO posts,
EWIS is not a "Commy" or a fellow-traveler.
But he hates Roosevelt, is. hotly isolationist,
vigorously opposes the defense progra, and
,burns with secret political ambitions. It hap-
pens that the current Communist "party line"
is exactly identical, so Lewis is using these ag-
gressive elements in some CIO unions to suit his
own ends.
Those ends are CIO domination of the mass
production industries, and a new political party
ruled by John L. Lewis.
IN THE CIO, Lewis is credited with being the
switch-snapper who gave the signal starting
the International Harvester and Bethlehem Steel
walk-outs. To him, also, is credited the planned
offensives in the shoe and aviation industries.
Close friends of John L. say that during his
recent illness their leader spent much time read-
ing military strategy. Apparently this reading
was not for pleasure.
Mushy Bill
In the American Federation of Labor, chief
difficulty arises from an exactly reverse situa-

THERE, William Green lacks both the personal
drive and authority to exercise firm-handed
control. As a result, initiation-dues racketeering
is rampant and jurisdictional rows are a plague
both to workers and to the defense program.
