MANY ILLUSTRATIONS of that "clear, clair-
voyant" type of thinking that sees every- MERRY-CO.ROUND

thing in terms of black and hite have been
seen of late in which the thesis was presented
that' the Republicans stand for Disaster and
Reaction, while the supporters of the New Deal
are for Peace and Progress.
Thus w*ith the stroke of a *pen 22,304,755
American citizens, for that's the number that
voted for Willkie in 1940, have been labeled ene-
mies' of the tation. Naturally all this could be
forgiven in the light of the rahik partisanship
which saturated these comments. ftowever, the
false facts and dubious logic which is behind
them cannot be tolerated.
Let's take a look at some of the charges made.
"The Republicans a'te co'tihiitted to a b ck-
to-normal policy at home and iiiven't yet
made up their minds on -whether to adopi
Wendell Willkie's or Hoover's foreign policy."
For the information of those who have so
spoken out, the most prominent American. in
field of international cooperation for the, past
25 years, as well as the co-aithor of what has
been considered the finest book on the subject
to date, "The Problems of a Lasting Peace," is
none other than Herbert C.' H&ver.- Check the
historical record and you will find that Hard-
ing and Collidge both faVored the -fltranc'e of
the United States into the League of N'tions
and World Court.
THE CHARGES that the Republicans are
committed to a back-to-normal policy are
similar to others such as, "The Republican do-
mestic policies brought on the crash of '1929...
A Republican victory .in 1944 is almost certain
to . embroil us in a third world war." As such
they are rank generalizations which few persons
with any knowledge of history Would dare to
But this seems typical of the type 'of thinking
that is generally employed in these critIcisins, a
type that seems to have the power to see behind

WASHINGTON, March 20.-It is violating no
diplomatic secret to report that the most impor-
tant phase of the' Anthony Eden conversations
is Russia and how she will fit into peace plans
after the war. To put it more bluntly-how
much European territory will Russians want
after the war?
it is aso a fAct that Foreign Minister Eden's
visit is just one year late as 'far as .the'Rus-
sians are coneerned,
Just a year ago, February, 1942, Eden went
to Moscow and listened to Russian ideas about
the future boundaries of Europe.
What Russia wanted was virtually the old
Czarist bouridary of 1914, giving her Latvia,
Lithuania and Estonia; a southern slice of Fin-
land (the Czar had all of Finland); the Rus-
sian half of Poland; and a good slice out of
Roumania, including Bessarabia.
In this. the. Russians were consistent. Their
proposal was similar- to that handed Prime
Minister Neville Chamberlain in 1939, before
war 'started, when' Britain was flirting with a
Russian alliance against Hitler And before the
Clivedon set finally decIded to urge Hitler to
ftussia Reversed ' Herelf
Since then Russia has reversed herself.
Whereas she was once pressing for a post-war
pact, today she doesn't want one. And whereas
we were then opposed to Any post-war -pact,
today weand the British are taking the initia-
S6tlin last November came out for the self-
determination of' peoples. Apparently he fig-
ures That the Bulgars and groups among the
Poles 'and Jugoslavs will lean toward Russia,
after the war, and that Russia is strong
enough to get what it wants for boundaries.
-That's why Stalin has no one sitting in on
the Eden conversations. Obviously he takes
the view that the Americans and British, who
Sdidn't want to talk boundaries last year, can
now go ahead and do the talking-to them-
That is Why the Eden conversations have to
be handled so skillfully. They must-not offend
Russia. Yet they *must work out a general peace
security pattern into which Russian ideas will
fit after the War.

I'd Rather
Be Right
NEW YORK, March 20.-It has been sug-
gested that the way to reform and improve Con-
gress is to set up one over-all committee, super-
ior to all special and standing committees. This
one committee would funnel all legislation to
the floor. It could afford a large research staff.
Its chairman would be chosen' for ability, not
seriority. It would say which bill should come
up when. It would be geared to "work with"
the executive.
This is a tidy blueprint. Yet if you look-closely,
you will see that- it proposes only changes in
form, riot in content.
What is there to insure that this device would
be magnificently better rather than nagnifi-
cently worse?
'A portion of this Congress giggles whenever
it hears the word "research." These men have
,spent thousands of dollars out of the-public
purse trying to make the Word "profesor" a
dirty word. Their revolution against sense has
reached the stage at which any mention of an
item for "research" in any executive appro-
priation comes in for a ribbing. Sometimes
Congress seems to want the government to
find Its way to the future with one hand over
its eyes, aid the other outstretched, groping.
The tone of this C6ngress is distinctly anti-
planning. It would be impossible to set up an
acceptable "one big committee" which would
not be dominated by that tone. The trouble
with Congress is Congressmen, and not organ-
izationAl structure. The man who pins his faith
on purely formal changes, who thinks that what
we need is a better gadget, instead of better
purposes, merely shies from the problem.
It is just As easily possible to escape to a blue-
print, as to a-tower of ivory.
(The best manifestation in Congress this
month has been the proposal of four completely
unorganized Senators, two Democrats, Hill and
Hatch, and two Republicans, Burton and Ball,
that the Senate go on record in favor of a per-
manent United Nations. Three of these men are
first-termers. Any "one big committee" would
have sat on this proposal and squashed it, under
the sheer weight of its voluptuous organizational
magnificence. The best new Congressional idea
yet has come in the form of a bi-partisan rebel-
lion from below, which shows you how much
organizational paper-doll-cutting is worth.)
Yet it is ektremely interesting that there has
been so much talk about formalistic changes in
the Congressional apparatus. Is that not the
unconscious) choice of an approach which
avoids the troublesome questions of changes in
content, changes in thought?
Our problem is the large number of Con-
gressien who, recklessly encouraged by some
sections of the press, have tried to convert
this session Into an anti-executive riot. They
have been weaned on small measures, such 'as
the National Resources Planning Board riier.
They are now going on to big ones, such as the
bill to reduce the size of the army for the sake
of agriculture. We have to tell them that's
wrong. We have to look them in the eye and
say, "Listen, honey, that's no good. These
particular ideas of yours are just no good."
To murmur: "Maybe you need one big com-
mittee" is merely to waste a good murmur on an
unlikely ear.

IT SEEMS that General Giraud, who last Sun-
day issued a decree that wiped away the Nazi
racial laws against the Jews in North 'Africa,
never lets his right hand know what his left
hand is doing. His actions, which the American
press has not presented completely, speak louder
to 100,000 Jews in Algeria than his Woids.
At the same time that he did away with'the
racial laws, he quietly announeed the repeal
of the Cremieux decree of 1870 which gave
citizenship to all Jews and Arabs who were
willing to abide by French law. The result
of this is to leave more than 100,0 Jews in
Algeria stateless.
Thp np nlni f Al'Lrin, ha alwa. nn ndaerar

the 'Arabs seldom took advantage of this law
because they refused to abide by many French
laws, particularly the marriage regulations.
These 100,60 people, who have been living
in Algeria for ,generations, are still left with
the right 'to -apply for citizenship individually
from the local civil servants. But these gov-
ernment employes are the very ones who insti-
tuted the Nazi racial Iaws in the first place.
The difficulties these Jews will have when
they try to -regain their citizenship may well
be 'insurmountable.
injustices of this sort will constantly come up
in a government which is run by decree as is
