Plane Production Alone
Is Major Allied Victory
THE UNITED NATIONS, turning promises into
planes, now have greater air power than the
Luftwaffe. British Air Ministry spokesmen re-
vealed recently that the RAF alone is stronger
than the combined German and Italian Air
Forces. And the United States alone is outpro-
ducing the entire Axis.
Production of this magnitude is a major
victory in itself. It demonstrates a resource-
fulness and eagerness to win that will speed
The immediate military importance of the
Allies' growing air superiority is to make many
important convoy routes safer from submarines.
And the new strength will make possible more
1,000-plane raids on the shipping and manufac-
turing centers of Nazi Europe.
BUT the air strength of the Allies has not yet
stopped growing. We may look forward to
the day when only Allied planes will take the air
to raid, when the enemy will be shot down when
he shows a propellor. - Lee Gordenker
BEW Should Be Given
Full Independent Status
ONE of the most urgent bills to come before
the new Congress, when it convenes Wednes-
day, is that involving the long-simmering BEW-
RFC dispute over RFC distribution of funds.
Actually, the significance of the bill involves
the future position of BEW's standing as a
government agency. A mere subonunittee of
the Reconstruction Fimance Corporation, the
Bureau of Economic Warfare in April asserted
that RFC had ineptly handled its authority to
accumulate stockpiles of essential commodities.
Result was that President Roosevelt stepped
in to give the Board power to issue directives
requiring RFC to close and finance BEW deals.
RFC head Jesse Jones, indignant at his loss of
power, hascountered with a letter asserting that
he has had to give money to BEW even when he
disapproved of the purpose. Vice-President Wal-
lace, director of BEW, when called in to testify,
said Milo Perkins, his administrator, had already
been forced to waste too much time being tactful
and that it was high time for BEW to hit harder
at its enemies.
S THE BILL granting RFC an additional five
billion to finance war activities swings into
the Congressional spotlight, public attention is
fastened on the heretofore relatively little-known
Board of Economic Warfare, which, with WPB,
forms'the Nation's high economic command.
Since April, when it gained a degree of power
in its own right, BEW has purchased over
$32,000,000 worth of strategic materials. Be-
fore April RFC's Rubber Reserve Co. had one
man in South America working on the develop-
ment of rubber; now, thanks to BEW, there
are over 100. Whereas RFC had spent not one
dollar on "preclusive" purchases (buying to
keep the goods out of Axis hands), BEW has
moved in to obtain a large number of critical
materials from European neutrals, often at
several times their value.
Although Jesse Jones himself has admitted the
value of BEW activities, which include the handl-
ing of all U.S. shipping except military and Lend-
Organization Should Be
Forged During Conflict
A YEAR after the signing of the United Nations'
pact, it is an inescapable conclusion that
the pact is just what Wendell Willkie recently
called it, "a mere euphonious phrase."
Four of the world's greatest nations-Eng-
land, Russia, China and the United States-as
well as many other smaller countries, have
supposedly been fighting hand In hand against
the common enemy since the signing of the
pact, but every day it becomes increasingly
apparent that each of the allies is playing a
True, real teamwork has been shown in the
coordination of the British and American war
programs, but China's recent disapproval of our
dribbling lend-lease aid, her objections to the
deaf ear we have turned to her pleas to reopen
the Burma Road, and the recall of her military
mission to this country all indicate that our
relations with the valiant Chiang Kai-shek and
his legions of soldiers and citizens are not all
that they could be.
IN the case of the Soviet Union, the Atlantic
Monthly reports that while cooperation takes
the form of a steady stream of supplies, there is
not yet full readiness on the part of the Soviets
to trust British and American officials with im-
portant information or to give full facilities to
.ur military observers. The Atlantic says, "coin-
pared with Anglo-American relations the U.S.S.R.
is fighting in isolation."
To allow this condition to exist among the
United Nations is a blunder on the part of
Americans and British alike. For once we should
realize that the real question is not so much what
we think of the Chinese, the Russians, the Indi-
Ins, and the millions of Southeastern Asia, but
what they think of us. We should therefore
take immediate remedial measures, steps which
thave already been suggested by such noted hu-
manitarians as Henry Wallace, Wendell Will-
kie and China's T. V. Soong through their pro-
posals for a United Nations World Council.
T'HIS world organization, forged during the
conflict for the purpose of not only formulat-
ing a grand military strategy of the United Na-
tions but for planning a realistic, equalitarian
post-war world pattern, is the one hope left for
more efficient prosecution of the war and for
(ecuring the future welfare of mankind. Russia,
China, England and America have the choice of
either developing a mechanism of working to-
gether that will survive after the fighting is over
or seeing all our w' aims discarded after the
armistice in a rush to lay down arms and con-
clude a peace.
More specifically the World Council would be
organized to deal with such problems as India's,
the post-war colonial world, the amalgamation
of our economic strength and war production,
the punishment of the Axis leaders, and the
countless other reconstruction problems. It would
surely be based, as Wallace has advocated, upon
liberty and unity and would have as its purpose
his lofty humanitarian ideals of the preservation
of liberty, equality and security for all.
F there is one lesson which the United Nations
must lean today it is that our enemies are
strong only in terms of cooperation among the
fighting democracies. The Iss understanding
which we show toward the Chinese, Russians
and peoles of Asia, the more time we lose in
NEW YORK-There is a difference between
liberalismn and namby-pambyism. Defense of
overtime pay is liberalism, because overtime pay
does not affect the war effort aid because its
elimination would run counter to even the con-
servative principle of not using the war to sneak
over fundamental social changes. But refusal
to support a universal war service act is not
liberalism; it is namby-pambyism.
We have to draw a line between what is lib-
eral and what is merely soft.
There is a kind of political slushiness which
passes for liberalism, but it is really a fake. To
allow one private car to ply the roads of the East
unnecessarily while even one home is without
heat is not liberalism; it is political goo, 'spread
on with a trowel, and it lacks both bones and
substance. To delay on universal service is an-
other clear case of administrative mushiness.
WHAT'S THE WAR WORTH?
HE universal war service act is coming (as it
came to England two and one-half years ago)
but it is coming in. precisely the wrong way; it is
being "put over" on labor and the administration
by conservatives, in Congress and out; its mid-
wives are men and agencies that have never been
conspicuously friendly' to labor, and sometimes
raucously the reverse.
Mr. McNutt, the Manpower Commissioner,
speaks in favor of such an act, but few others in
the Administration do. Labor itself is fighting a
kind of rearguard action against this proposal to
assign .non-essential workers to essential tasks,
by government order, but on what ideologicaf
ground it is hard to see. Labor has decided that
the war is worth giving up strikes for, that it is
worth giving up its sons and husbands for, that
it is worth paying taxes for, but has yet to de-
clare coolly that it is worth giving up the right
to work at a useless job for.
THAT CERTAIN SOFT SOMETHING
THAT millions of Americans are working at
non-essential jobs is incontrovertible. (The
moment the war news gets a bit better, they
cling to these jobs all the more fiercely, I am
told by personnel experts; they fear the insecur-
ity of war work; the paradoxical result is that
the nearer the war approaches its peak, the
harder it becomes to shift these men and women
The wish to protect these jobs is certainly
not based on a clear and just estimation of
war needs; it is a kind of hankering; a kind of
reluctance to budge; it is not liberalism, which
can be firm and hard; it is that other, softer
thing I have mentioned. It is like the pacifism
that was still visible in portions of the French
labor movement in 1938; something remem-
bered from the past, once valid, and still cling-
ing on after its day is over.
It is too late for labor, even with all its just
fears of those who hate it, to behave automatic-
ally and instinctively.-
AN EYE FOR THE CLOCK
jT must behave consciously and knowingly. For
the soft, sluggish "state of mind" now dis-
played on the universal service issue, labor can
substitute the hardness and firmness of real
liberalism, which would accept compulsory job
directives, then insist on fair, temperate admin-
istration (actually, in England, "advice" to work-
