Allied Pact Will Ease
Post-War Settlement . .
T HE AGREEMENT signed by Great
Britain and the United States in
Washington Tuesday represents an encouraging
stride toward a successful post-war economic
readjustment throughout the world. It raises
the hope that the mistake of economic nation-
alism, with its trade barriers and high tariffs,
made after the first World War, will not -be
repeated.
Principle purpose of the new pact is making
real the economic aims of the Atlantic Charter.
The fifth point of that historic document em-
phasized the desire of the United States and
GreatBritain "to bring about the fullest collab-
oration between all nations in the economic field
with the object of securing, for all, improved
labor standards, economic advancement and
social security." The fulfillment of the Charter's
promise of free access to the world's resources
and trade to every nation will also be made
more feasible by the Allied economic plan.
THE PACT, as signed by Acting Secretary of
State Sumner Welles and British Ambassador
Viscount Halifax, according to the Associated
Press calls for an "elimination of all forms of
discriminatory treatment in international com-
merce, and the reduction of tariffs." It also lists
expansion of production, exchange and con-.
sumption of goods as another objective.
Furthermore, a basis for the settlement of
lend-lease accounts is provided. Any material
that can be returned, and that the United States
wants, will be sent back to this country. Any
other final settlement "shall be such as not to
burden commerce between the two countries,
but to promote mutually advantageous economic
relations between them and the betterment of
world-wide economic relations."
It is apparent that this pact will ease the post-
war economic problem. If it is entered into and
carried out by all the United Nations, another
period of stagnation in international commerce
like that following the last war will not again be
possible. Tariff wars and the resulting world
economic depressions can be avoided.
ALSO ELIMINATED is a potential conflict
over lend-lease debts. Under the terms of
the agreement any debts may be settled without
disrupting commerce and friendly international
relations. For many years British-American
relations have been clouded by the specter of
the war debts of the 1914-18 conflict.
The new economic agreement between United
States and Great Britain is indeed a gratifying
and significant move. It is such a step as this
that adds concrete support to the oft-expressed
claim that a lasting world reorganization will
follow this war.

'Night-Riding Vigilantes'
Only Obstruct Justice.
SOME OF sunny California's more
cloudy-minded citizens have taken
it upon themselves to act as private extermi-
nators of the "fifth column." An asparagus
workers' camp was attacked by six men who
wounded one Jap and robbed six others. A Japa-

WASHINGTON-In view of the fact that
President Roosevelt once made a great national
issue over keeping "Nine Old Men" on the Su-
preme CQurt, The Washington Merry-Go-Round
has suggested that the President might consis-
tently dispense with the "Four Old Men" in his
cabinet-Secretaries Hull, Stimson, Knox and
Jones-all around seventy, who hold important
war jobs. (This is the tlird column in the series
on the "Four Old Men."-Ed.)
For a man who has spent his life in the news-
paper profession and is one of America's fore-
most publishers, Secretary of the Navy Knox
certainly has a tough time with his press rela-
tions..
IN the same week that the Japanese attacked
Pearl Harbor, Frank Knox was out on the
newsstands with an American Magazine cover
proclaiming to the American public: "We Can
Defend Ourselves In Two Oceans."
And now, a few weeks later, Mr. Knox an-
nounces: "We've an awful lot of bread to butter,
and it will have to be buttered very thin."
A public relations bull like this might be con-
sidered just bad luck, if it hadn't happened so
often.
But after demanding that the American press
not divulge the operations of American air-
planes and personnel cooperating with the Brit-
ish before we were in the war, the good Colonel
came out with an article in Collier's disclosing
that an American naval observer was present
in the American-built plane which sighted the
Bismarck.
Again, after it had been officially announced
that the U. S. destroyer Greer was attacked first
by,, a Nazi submarine, Secretary Knox's Navy
Department sent a letter to the Senate stating
that the Greer was helping a British airplane
pursue the submarine.
Knox Smells Newsprint
COLONEL KNOX'S chief trouble is that as an
old newspaperman he is just too anxious to
burst into print. He can smell a good story
blocks away and when he does so the old fire
comes into his eyes and he isn't happy until he
makes the next edition. (Of course we can
sympathize with him on this; but we are run-
ning a column, not the Navy.)
Perhaps this is the explanation for the Colo-
nel's publicity gyrations in connection with
battleship launchings. U. S. Naval Intelligence
would like to know whether the Nazi battleships
Friedrich der Grosse and Hindenburg have been
launched. If our Navy knew that, it would know
how many battleships it would station in the
Atlantic to meet them.
However, the Axis doesn't have to worry about
checking on our battleships. For when a U. S.
battleship is launched, Secretary.Knox gets out
the champagne and the radio speeches, and
makes sure that the entire world knows about
it. It saves the Nazis and the Japanese a lot of
money and trouble on Intelligence work.
And yet, when British warships arrived in
U. S. harbors, Colonel Knox demanded that the
American press hush up the facts, even though
everyone around the waterfront knew all about
them.
RECO 0R DS
Pianistics, Old and New
- Chopin To Rachmaninoff
RACHMANINOFF-Concerto No. 1, in F Sharp
minor-Sergei Rachmaninoff with Philadel-
phia Orchestra under Ormandy (Victor).
This is the least frequently performed of Rach-
maninoff's concertos, and unjustly so. The mu-
sic is powerful and sincere, and it is motivated
throughout by the restless rhythms characteris-
tic of nearly all of Rachmaninoff's great orches-
tral compositions.
This first recording of the work is well-done
and clearly recorded. With the composer at the
piano, the work is assured of authenticity.
CHOPIN WALTZES-played by Alexander
Brailowsky (Victor)-The release of two vol-
umes of Chopin's music-all of his waltzes-as

played by one of the foremost living interpreters
of Chopin's music, is certainly an important
musical event.
The two albums include fourteen record sides
and are played to perfection by this great mas-
ter of the piano.
Of the single Red Seal records released this
month, one stands out-the well-liked Rosen-
kavalier Waltzes of Richard Strauss, as recorded
by Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Or-
chestra. The Boston "Pops" Orchestra has re-
corded Oh, Susannah! and Sally In Our Alley
with rather elaborate orchestrations, for no
apparent reason, and the result is an uninter-
esting and unsuitable hodgepodge of musical
tomfoolery. f- D. L.
doing a very efficient job. All that the vigi-
lantes can accomplish is a disruption of the
legal police work.
Such intrusion on the rights of men as has
been taking place in California will only detract
from the real usefulness loyal Americans of
enemy descent can have for the war effort. We
have Japanese soldiers in our armies. We have
Japanese workers in our factories-we might
have many more doing us real service, but we
cannot get them by attacking them in the night.

Admirals Hate Him
:T should not be held against Knox that some
of the admirals hate him. The admirals are
usually resentful of any civilian secretary of the
Navy, and sometimes the measure of their dis-
like is a gauge of his ability.
In the case of Colonel Knox, however, the re-
sentment is partly over the Colonel's untimely
publicity, partly over the political appointments.
There is a lot of grumbling over the fact that
Jules James, nephew of Secretary of War Stim-
son, was promoted to be an admiral; that Ad-
miral Wilson Brown was jumped from White
House aide to superintendent of the Naval
Academy, and that the President's naval aides
usually graduate to lush posts. These promo-
tions may not be Knox's fault, but he gets the
blame.
King Vs. Knox
Of late there is one section of the Navy De-
partment virtually barred to Knox, even though
he is Secretary of the Navy. This is the wing
of the building ruled by Admiral King, Com-
mander of the United States Fleet.
THIS PART of the Navy functions entirely on
its own-even has its own kitchen in case
officers have to work all night. No civilians are
permitted to enter. And if the Secretary of the
Navy wants to get by the marine standing on
guard, he has to telephone in advance.
King and Knox go through the motions of
observing the amenities, but there is no love
lost between them.
In ordinary peace times, Knox would be a
reasonably good Secretary of the Navy. But to-
day, when a slip can be disastrous, and when
coordinated unity is needed more than ever
before, the rough-riding, tough-talking Colonel
is a misfit. Perhaps realizing this, Knox several
times has told the President he wanted to resign.
(Another in the series of columns on the
"Four Old Men" will appear soon.)
Democrats In A.Hole'
Bald, tobacco-chewing Representative Reid F.
Murray, Wisconsin Republican, stole the show
at hearings before the House Civil Service Com-
mittee on repeal of "pensions for Congress."
Murray brought chuckles by a candid admis-
sion that he wanted to see the Democratic ad-
ministration "take the blame" for the unpopular
legislation. Democratic Representative Guy L.
Moser of Pennsylvania promptly accepted the
challenge.
"If you're so hot against pensions for Con-
gress," demanded Moser, "and want to put the
Democrats in a hole, why haven't you yourself
introduced a repeal bill?"
"Oh, come now, Congressman," retorted Mur-
ray. "There's such a thing as carrying dema-
goguery too far."

MUSIC

ALEC TEMPLETON, Pianist
Handel, Fantasy in C major; Bach, Prelude and
Fugue in C minor; Chopin, impromptu in F major;
Franck, Prelude, Chorale and Fugue. Debussy,
Excerpts from The Children's Suite.
Miscellaneous improvisations, etc.
W ITH ALL THE FUSS and commotion which
is at the present time being made concern-
ing the conserving of electricity it seems rather
foolish that so much of it was wasted last night
by the bright lights of Hill Auditorium; Mr.
Templeton could just as well have appeared in
some night club which would be using the elec-
tricity anyway, in the milieu in which he began
and for which his type of entertainment is most
suitable. Playing before an audience which was
most ungenteel in clanking of knitting needles,
gum-chewing, coughing, and impolite restless-
ness during the first, and serious half of the eve-
ning, Mr. Templeton passed from this serious
music to what is obviously his most congenial
medium, improvisation, mimicry, the exploita-
tion of the jazz idioms, in short, musical bur-
lesque. Inasmuch as burlesque is not within the
scope of this department we will proceed to a
discussion, of the first part of the program.
Mr. Templeton is possessed o'f a fine technique
and at times does some excellent playing, yet
it is obvious that as a concert pianist he is but
mediocre. Technically his main fault lies in his
tone, which lacks depth and is often coarse and
unpleasant; in all fairness to him, this should be
partly blamed on one of the most annoyingly
voiced pianos we have ever heard in concert, one
which also had a thin and unresonant tone.
Some of the more intense passages were some-
what reminiscent of hail on a tin roof. The
Handel and Bach numbers which opened the
program were done with good style and feeling
for the classicists, though they could have had
more subtlety of dynamic change and somewhat
fuller tone quality.
The Franck "Prelude, Chorale and Fugue," the
finest composition on the program, was the
most poorly played. The entire composition
lacked the subjective expression of Franck; Mr.
Templeton did not at all realize the impression-
ist spirit and style. Instead of the melting to-
gether of the voices to form a luscious homo-
geneity. with the thematic material vaguely seen
and felt in the sensuous harmony, it was notey
and harsh, with obviousness of melody ani no
balance or musical coordination between the
hands. The Chorale especially suffered from
boredom, and almost completely ruinous to the
magnificent iie was thep nianist's: hreakoAn
