Cites Political
Smith Calls Sportsmanship.
In Campaign Necessary,
At Annual PEI Meeting
Moral Rearmament
Needed, Evans Says
Sportsmanship in politics has re-
cently been illustrated in the passage
of two Hatch Acts by which the Dem-
ocrats gave the Republicans their
only chance of winning the current
┬░lection, Congressman T. V. Smith of
Illinois told delegates to the 11th
Annual Parents Education Institute
at the last day's morning session
"Beneath the perpetual clash of
men and issues in political campaigns
there has existed a good humor which
is the only possible foundation for
maintaining the two-party system,"
he declared.
Congressman Smith stated that
competition between political per-
sons over issues is in effect a stan-
dard form of cooperation in demo-
cratic society.;
At a luncheon later in the day
Smith asserted "the main element
in the present citizenship crisis is
our ignorance of American traditions,
abilities and weaknesses."
Two Great Traditions
Americans are heirs, he said, to
two great traditions, the religious
and moral tradition of non-compro-
mise and the political tradition of
compromise, "meeting the opposi-
tion half way." These basic convic-
tions produce a discrepancy in the
popular outlook, a discrepancy which
the politician circumvents by "com-
promising an 'issue without compro-
mising himself."
The basic paradox of democracy,1
applied to the present war crisis,
he stated, gives rise to such formulas
as "war to end wars," in turn re-
sulting in "peace to end peace."
The solution, according to Rep-
resentative Smith, is .the view that
an amount of comromise, an amount
of evil, is the price we, as citizens,
must pay for the goods we enjoy.
"If we believe that death on some]
terms is better than life on others,
then we believe in democracy as our
religion," he said.1
S. H. Evans Speaks
Mr. S. Howard Evans, of the Na-
tional Municipal League told Insti-
tute members that local educational
units must take the leadership unless
they want the national government.
to step in. If the latter happens,
we will doubtless see in this country
the American counterpart of the
German Ministry of Education and
Propaganda, he said.
"The local community groupi
throughout the country must act,
together to strengthen the mental
attitude of the people if democracy
is to be retained in the United States,"
Evans declared.
Any program of moral rearmament,
he asserted, must be based upon the
cooperation of all the clubs, educa-
tional units, and economic groupsc
in the community if it is to succeed.1

Anti-aircraft batteries pickedoff
the flares almost as quickly as they
appeared and the raiders, unseen in
the blackness, showed no inclination
to get close enough to the ground to

During the initial phase of the stab

tered raiders over East #nglia, north-
east Scotland, southwest and south-
east England. These for the most
part were single plane forays and
there were no reports of heavy dam-

The authoritative assertion that ad-

were now operating behind the Me-

report to the Italian high command
that the Greek highway junction of
Kalibaki had been reached.
Officials here, unable to locate a
town of such spelling, suggested in-

Turks, Russia
Seen Awaiting
(Associated Press Staff writer)
Turkey's guarded statement of her
policy toward the Italo-Greek war
contains more food for thought than
the conflicting reports of battle from
Athens and Rome.
President Inonu's statement to the
Turkish parliament contained a dis-
tinct intimation that Turkey and
Russia see eye to eye in withholding'
action pending fuller development
of German-Italian strategy. But this
was coupled with a clear warning to
the Axis powers to avoid trespass
on vital Turkish interests.
The fact Turkey was collaborating
with her treaty mate, Britain, in
studying the Italo-Greek develop-
ments was already known. Inonu's
declaration that Turkish-Russian re-
lations "now have taken a friendly
turn," however, gives the first author-
itative key to Moscow's attitude. Nor
can it be divorced from its context
flatly declaring Turkey's preparedness
and determination to fight if her
own national interests are jeopard-
Double Message
Inonu intended to convey a double
message to the Axis mates and to
Bulgaria. His purpose was to advise
them that Russia was as gravely
concerned as Turkey over any de-
velopment which drew Turkey within
the war orbit.
Germany vitally needs food and
other Russian commodlities, including
oil, to supplement her Galician and
Rumanian sources. Supplies from the
Soviet could dry up quickly, even if
Russia stayed out of a Turkish-Axis
To Guard Flank
The Turkish leader also gave def-
inite assurances that Turkey intends
to guard her Greek associate's Mac-
edonian flank. Bulgaria is placed on
formal notice of that, if she moves
to aid Italy or afford Germany a
route to do so, it will be with vir-
utal advance notice that Turkey will
enter the struggle.
What is not clear, however, is at
what point in the developing Ital-
iam thrust across northern Greece
Turkey might deemed her toes step-
ped upon. Turkey must regard the
unhampered use of the island-studded
Aegean Sea as no less vital to her
security and economic life, than the
Willkie Scores
Aircraft Plans
Republican Leader Claims
FDR Is Demonstrator
Of 'Deceptive Optimism'
-(P)-Wendell L. Willkie charged
President Roosevelt tonight with "de-
ceptive optimism" in declaring in his
Boston address that the nation was
making "very rapid progress" toward
a goal of 50,000 planes a year.
Citing the President's announce-
ment that he had asked the priori-
ties board to give "sympathetic con-
sideration" to a British request for
permission to negotiate in this coun-
try for 12,000 additional planes, which
Willkie said brought the British or-
ders to 26,000 planes, the Republican
presidential nominee declared.
"But he does not tell us when Bri-

tain will get those 26,000 planes, nor
when our military forces will get the
50,000 planes he talks about."
The Republican candidate spoke
over a nationwide NBC network from
his special train, parksed overnight
on a siding in the New Jersey
marshes, a few miles from New York
City, where tomorrow night he will

Premier Inonu Declares
Turks Stand Prepared

Nation Weighing
Entire Situation
ANKARA, Turkey, Nov. 1.-(MP)-Is-
met Inonu, heir to Kemal Ataturk as
the leader of reborn Turkey, informed
his national assembly today that the
nation will follow the lead of Soviet
Russia and stay out of war for the
But, President Inonu insisted, Tur-
key is weighing the whole situation
in collaboration with her ally Bri-
tain; she will fight instantly if at-
tacked, and "we remain loyal to our
friendships; our obligations and ties
of collaboration are uashakeable."
His stress on the "friendly turn" of
Turkey's relations with the Soviet
Union, following "a critical period,"
gave foreign observers the idea that
this was the key to Turkey's decision.
Russian Signal Awaited
Thus Turkey, they believed, will
wait for Russia's signal before enter-
ing the Balkan war which has been
started by Italy's incursion into
Greece, unless she first is attacked or
considers herself menaced by such a
development as the entrance of Bul-
garia into hostilities on the side of the
"Soviet policy," said Inonu, "in this
lark world is the one of the greatest
security. We have decided to act for
the interests of our nation without
harming anyone else."
Meanwhile, as Inonu- indicated by
words and action, Turkey will hold
fast to her mutual defense treaty
with Britain and consult with the
representatives of that warring power.
"Our neighbors the Greeks unfor-
,unately have been called into war,"
,aid Inonu, "and we, with our ally,
3ritain, are studying the situation.
Our country has decided to defend our
ndependence, security and land. This
is our greatest pride.

Has 'Dictatorial Ends'
BROOKLYN, Nov. 1--(P)-Presi-
dent Roosevelt declared tonight the
Republican Party was being backed
by an "unholy alliance" of extreme
reactionaries and extreme radicals
seeking "dictatorial ends."
He made the statement in an ad-
dress prepared for a nation-wide
broadcast from the Brooklyn Acad-
emy of Music, opening a final 24-hour
campaign in New York, Pennsylvania
and Ohio.
Saying everyone knew the fable
about the "unfortunate chameleon,"
who "died a tragic death when they
put him on a scotch plaid," Roose-
velt added:
"We all know what would happen
to government if it tried to fulfill
all the secret promises made between
the conflicting groups which are now
backing the Republican Party."
The president said he felt certain
the rank and file of "patriotic Re-
publicans" did not realize the nature
of this threat.",
"They should remember," he added,
and we must remember, what the
collaborative understanding between
Communism and Naziism has done
to the processes of democracy abroad."
And Mr. Roosevelt continued:
"Something evil is happening in
this country when vast quantities
of Republican campaign literature
are distributed by organizations which
make no secret of their admiration for
