WASHINGTON-You can write it down defi-
nitely that there is one thing the Republican
National Committee, which meets tomorrow in
Chicago, will do.
It will continue Representative Joe Martin as
National Chairman.
In recent months the hard-working little New
Englander's leadership has been under fire in
influential party circles. Anti-isolationists have
been critical of his isolationist voting record and
the appointment of militant isolationists to high
Committee posts.
On the other hand, isolationists also have been
gunning for his scalp.
Senator Bob Taft of Ohio marched a delega-
tion, of GOP members of Congress into Martin's
office and frankly told him they thought he
ought to vacate the Chairmanship. When he
asked whom they favored as his successor, Taft
replied, "Alf Landon."
But when other Republican congressional lead-
ers heard of this, they vigorously turned thumbs
down on Landon and advised Martin to sit tight.
Similar strong counsel came from other potent
GOP chiefs.
As a result, Martin is certain he is secure in
the saddle and will fight any move to oust him.
That means there will be no fight, because the
last thing all factions want is an inner party
tangle that would be sure to leave painful scars.
Note: At a rally he is staging before the GOP
meeting, Democratic Mayor Ed Kelly of Chicago
intends to make a big point of the fact that the
Republican Committee is convening on Hitler's
GOP Campaign Strategy
IN PREPARATION for the Chicago pow-wow,
Martin in recent weeks has held a number of
private conferences with State leaders at which
he outlined his views on what the GOP strategy
should be in this year's crucial congressional
The nub of Martin's plan is that the Republi-
cans should concentrate all their fire on the Ad-
ministration's conduct of the war.
Martin said he was certain the Democrats will
try to stick the isolationist label on the GOP and
Good Idea To Buy Records
Before Shortage Is Felt
T will probably be difficult to get the records
you want in the very near future, so it would
be a good idea to purchase them as soon as pos-
sible. Production of records has been severely
curtailed, although good music is essential to
good morale. In fact one record concern, in
the near future, will not sell you a record unless
you give an old record in exchange-like the
toothpaste tube idea--as there is an extreme
shortage of shellac, most of which used to come
from Java.

charge it with obstructing the defense program.
He admitted that the activities of certain Repub-
licans, such as Congressman Fish and Clare
Hoffman, would play into the halds of the
But Martin pointed out that the Republicans
could cite the fact that the No. 1 isolationist
leader on Capitol Hill was a Democrat, Senator
Burt Wheeler. Also, that since Pearl Harbor,
the GOP has voted for every war appropriation
and measure asked for by the White House.
Martin told the State leaders that the cam-
paign stand the Republican party should take is
that the real issue is not what happened before.
December 7, but how the war has been run since.
On that ground, he declared, the GOP will find
plenty of material to blast the Democrats.
However, with characteristic realism, Martin
warned the leaders that in the end the campaign
will be decided largely by military developments.
That is, if by fall the Allies have won some
major victories and prospects for victory have
materially improved, the chances will favor the
Democrats to retain control- of the House. On
the other hand, if the Allied picture continues
gloomy, it will be a good bet that the Republicans
will come out on top.
Old Appeasers
WTHEN Philippine High Commissioner Francis
B. Sayre appeared before the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee at a closed-door session he
related many things that are military secrets.
But one piece of information is not taboo. Sayre
nailed as wholly unfounded reports that an ex-
tensive pro-Jap appeasement movement exists
in the Philippines.
There has been some appeasement activity, he
said, but it is definitely not serious. Filipinos
are as loyal to the United States as ever. The
suffering and adversity they have endured have
intensified their patriotism.
Sayre reported that only a few politicians
were responsible for the appeasement activity
and they carried no influence with the people.
Naming these politicians, he added: "Most of.
them are old and feeble."
"Some of us are old and feeble, too," piped up
75-year-old Senator Hiram W. Johnson of Cali-

You really aren't old.

DESPITE the doubtless value of bring-
ing home to the populace of Japan
the fact that the forces of the Rising Sun are
not the only ones with the power of death and
destruction at their disposal, it is well to remem-
ber that there can be small military advantage
resulting from yesterday's daylight raid on Tokyo
and that such a raid does not necessarily herald
a general offensive against the citadel of Hiro-
hito's power.
Any other conclusion must assume extensive
and, in the case of America, unbelievably secret
preparations indicating a disregard for the im-
provement of the situation in either Burma or
the Philippines.
The only possible influence on the fortunes of
the Allied forces in the Far Eastern theatre is
the recall to the homeland of a few anti-aircraft
batteries, and this is doubtful in view of the
value to the Japs of maintaining aerial superior-
ity on the fighting fronts.
Effect on Jap morale other than the announc-
ing of our presence is to be discounted because
even in the event of a deliberate attack on the
notably vulnerable centers of prjiulation, the
periodic subjection of the Japanese people to
elemental buffetings would serve only to crystal-
lize against the Allies a resentment which could
not be expresed against an earthquake or tidal
ON THE OTHER HAND, our home front is
offered a valuable and easily apparent ex-
ample of the propaganda technique of the Axis
press in the Tokyo broadcasts of the attack. The
characterization of successfully bombed targets
as "cultural establishments" and the complete
absence of damage to military objectives is typi-
cal of the state-inspired publicity emanating
from thi "anti-Comintern" camp, It may well
be remembered if continued reverses make us
more susceptible t' the poisoned Goebbels pen.

w. W HEN riots broke out at Detroit's
Sojourner Truth Housing Project,
they were excused with the usual slogans about
decline in property value, inherent distrust; of
Negroes and "While" neighborhoods.
These e(:IlSees were made in hefawe ofthe
knowledge that the (i1kts about the project

Two leaders of the pickets were brought before
the Federal Court under indictments of violation
of the Negroes' civil rights and seditious con-
spiracy to hinder the execution of a Federal law.
A third leader is still at large.
The men arraigned stood mute before the
court. But their past actions betrayed their
thoughts. Those men were also known to the
police as leaders of an alleged Fascist, vigilante
organization, the National Workers League, the
successor to the hooded Black Legion.
Parker Sage, Garland L. Alderman, officers
of the National Workers League, and Virgil
Chandler, president of a landlord's group, started
enough trouble at Sojourner Truth Project to
postpone the occupancy of the project for weeks.

At any rate, you will certainly want

have reached a peak.

COAUSSON-Concerto in D major for Violin,
Piano and String Quartet.-Heifetz, San-
roma and the Musical Art Quartet. (Victor DM-
Chausson was a pupil of Cesar Franck and
thus his music is patterned after that of Franck.
The Concerto, one of the outstanding products
of French chamber music, is sometimes known
as C"usson's Sextet," because it is prl1narily
a piece of beautiful chamber music, and only
secondarily a virtuoso concerto. The themes of
this excellent work are of high artistic merit,
demonstrating Chausson's finely formulated mu-
sical ideas. Except for its first movement, it is
pervaded by a rather wistful melancholy, which
is often found in Chausson's music.
The exquisitely delicate performance of the
Musical Art Quartet is greatly enhanced by the
superb work of Heifetz and Sanroma. Those
who love good chamber 11111sic., spccially of the
Fran(kian school, should hail this performance
as filling a long-standing need.
)VORAK-Symphony No. I n )major-The
Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Vaclav Tal-
ich, Conductor. (Victor DM-874)
This is the first recording Wo a cheerful, whole-
some work. It is a rarely heard symphony,
mainly because it has always been in the shadow
of Dvorak's fourth and fifth symphonies. It is
true that this work is not equal in caliber to the
New World Symphony. but nevertheless it is a
work of the first order. T'lw. performance by
the Czech Philharmonic, under Talich, one of
the greatest interpreters of Dvor;ik. leaves liftfle
to be desired.
One of the fiest single records to leave the
Victor presses is the 12-inch disc of Prokofieff's
"Prince and the Princess," Scene infernal and
March, from Love For Three Oranges (Victor
18497), by the NBC Symphony Orchestra, con-
ducted by Leopold Stokowski. Some of these
brilliant excerpts from the Soviet composer's
opera have previously been recorded by Kous-
sevitzky and the Boston Symphony and Coates
with the London Symphony, but never have they
topped the power and beauty they attain on
this new disc. Indeed a remarkable recording
you owe it to yourself to hear it.
Also in the new releases is a two-piano version
of the overworked Dance Macabre as played by
Pierre Luboshutz and Genia Nemenoff on a
Victor record. c- D. L.

Note: A son-in-law of President Wilson, Sayre
can well remember how "youngster" Johnson
twenty years ago led the Senate fight against
the League of Nations.
lio~inie Says
" ATURE is too thin a screen; glory of the
omnipresent God bursts through every-
where." So Emerson wrote. This is the prevail-
ing view of God and His providence which the
good have held and many great men have relied
upon. As we stand in the presence of death, walk
our several ways among the men who step out to
danger and thus shield us who are at home, only
prayer is adequate. We must learn nearness to
that ultimate conserver of every noble deed, Our
Father Almighty. He alone can bring good out
of our willingness and cause right to prevail.
No less is genuine faith. Men need to "dig again
the wells which were digged." That is, experience
has taught us much truth. In every moral and
spiritual way eah unst find sources of power,
Those with insight teach that he serves best in
emergency who can feel that under society, lying
far beneath the daily round of professional and
political life, more basic than human desire or
will, in the very structure of the Universe, there
is a source on which all may draw.
We of America are most apt to discover the
religious attitude by turning anew to the words
of Jesus as He taught His disciples. For example,
He related food to God, "Give us this day our
daily bread.' Do we thank God for the meal be-
fore our 'ar1,"C wot ls, ready to satisfy the htim-
ger we feel? The nearness of God may more
readily be learned through grace at meal than in
any other situation. This is why dietary laws
play a central role in every great religion. Like-
wise, Jesus lived His friendships in the conscious
presence of God. "Forgive us our sins as we for-
give those who have sinned against us." Ability
to forgive, eagerness to restore the good-will
which may have been temporarily destroyed is
a route to God as well as a valid route to social
solidarity and national strength. The creation
of adefense wvithouit ate will depend uiion a

thus Projce('ted( is tlh(' laitli of religion. The ma-
ture and the wise will carry this contribut ion into
our Democracy.
T IS by such practice on the part of an ever-
increasing community of men that the weaker
members of a society are built up. Religion stills
the fear, tames the anger, replaces the will to do
evil, and establishes the soul in confidence. When
so set, the mind can function and only then will
it function well. When so set, the juices of the
body can function and not until then will they
,eirve as they should. When so set, community
can begin and without this religious attittide
even saintly men are unable to continue. By no
less than religiousness can a community called
"team" or "family" or "partnership" or "com-
pany" or "nation" hope to succeed. Jacques Mar-
