U.S. Disunity Can Again
Destroy World Peace
N ARNING the American people against let-
ting the controversies of an election year cre-
ate disunity and destroy their effectiveness in
world affairs, Secretary of State Cordell Hull in
his speech Sunday hit the focal point of a situa-
tion which may keep the United States from
any world organization which is set up after
the war.
As Secretary Hull said, we fell, into disunity
after World War I and became ineffective in
world affairs because of it. Should this happen
again, we will be fighting another war in 20
During the last world war Congress gave
President Wilson the power to call a confer-
ence to discuss the possibility of setting up a
League of Natiofis as soon as the war was
over. At that time the U.S. fully intended to
become a member of such a league.
However, because of petty disagreements in
the country, we did NOT join. The same thing
CAN happen again. We never can expect all the
the nations of the world to agree when the people
of one nation alone cannot get together.
For a while we believed that at last, no matter
what else we might adopt, that at least isolation-
ism was an outmoded theory. The recent Wis-
consin primary showed that this is not true.
Willkie, who has so clearly expressed his inter-
nationalistic views, was overwhelmingly de-
At the beginning of the war we realized that
the United States could not again retreat into
its shell after the war. Yet some people in
this country give indication that they will
soon forget the lesson that is now being
* learned with so much bloodshed.
America is committed to a policy of trying
to help build a better world when the present
conflict is over. Let us hope that dispute over
the issues in the coming political campaign does
not divide our nation so that we are unable to
take our rightful place in settling world affairs.
-Doris Peterson

NEW YORK, April 10.-With Mr. Wilkie's
exit, a great change comes over the Republican
party. So long as he was a prospect, there was
hope that the Republican party might turn to-
ward a more cheerful and amiable conservatism
than it has practiced in the past; a conservatism
that smiles once in awhile, and does not go
around all the time with a look saying that
nobody else knows what it is to be a mother.
Now that Mr. Wilkie is out, the party may
fall entirely into the hands of the perpetual-
plot-spotters, the masters of the ear-splitting
In a way. Mr. Willkie was a great convenience
to what a sad dog of a Democrat I know calls
the Grumpy Old Party. If the Republicans
hadn't had a Willkie, it would, actually, have
been smart for them to invent one,
. Mr. Willkie made it impossible for critics to
make any kind of a flat statement about the
G.O.P. With a Mr. W., its titular head, rattling
around in the, Kremlin and in London, you
couldn't call the party provincial. With Mr. W.
turning up at some fairly intellectual gatherings
in New York, you couldn't say that the G.O.P.
was out of touch with the main currents of
modern thought. So long as Mr. Willkie was
around, no brusque comment could be made
about the Republican organization; every state-
ment had to be qualified, and hedged. Even Mr.
Harrison Spangler may soon have cause to
NaziPlanes, Industry
Have Not Been Crippled
THE CURRENT heavy bombings of Germany
by the RAF and the U.S. 8th and 15th Air
Forces, many of them unchallenged by the
fighter command of the German Luftwaffe, have
created a wave of optimism among the American
public. The general opinion of the man on the
street seems to be that German industry is vir-
tually destroyed and that the Nazi Air Force has
been decimated to the point where it can no
longer effectively challenge Allied bombing
We would like to believe that this is true.
Unfortunately, however, there is every reason
to believe that the American people are indul-
ging in wishful thinking, rather than analyz-
ing the situation in its proper light.
Undoubtedly, the heavy bombing of German
armament centers has crippled their capacity to
some extent. But German ingenuity must be
taken into consideration in estimating the dam-
age done. It would be foolish to assume that
German engineers have not moved a great part
of their more vital industry underground just as
the Bri.tish did during the blitz of 1941. That
this has been done is borne out by statements of
Allied generals on both the Italian and Russian
fronts that the flow of German equipment to
the front lines has not materially lessened.
Moreover, the rate of replacement in bombed-
out areas is remarkably high. RAF authorities
recently stated that a factory must be almost
completely destroyed at least once every three
months to keep it out of operation.
MUCH has also been made of the failure of
German fighters to seriously challenge even
the U.S. daylight attacks in recent weeks. This,
too, must be approached with caution. The
logical question is, where are the Nazi planes?
The most reasonable probability is that they are
on the ground, safely camouflaged from a^r
attack. Hitler is staking his fast glimmering
chance of victory on repelling the forthcoming
continental invasion with terrific Allied losses.
The Nazis feel that the American people will
not stand for such heavy casualties, especially
in defeat, and will be willing to make peace on
favorable terms with the Reich. If this is true,
it is logical to assume that Herr Goering is
mustering every bit of air strength available to
use against the invaders, even if it means
fewer American and British bombers destroyed
over Germany.
German industry is still second only to the
United States in productive capacity, and the
Luftwaffe is still one of the world's most effi-
cient fighting forces. We are winning the battles
against them, but final victory still hangs over

the horizon in the indefinite future.
-- Bill Mullendore

admit, I think,
a lot of class.

He also gave it the appearance of youth, be-
cause of the very fact that he started a whale
of an internal fight in its ranks. Those flushed
cheeks were quite becoming. So long as the
Republican party was trying to disgorge Mr.
Willkie, it wore an aspect of vitality, as if its
opinions were not completely cut-and-dried, as
if it were actually thinking, and suffering, and
trying to come to conclusions. That always
looks good.
THE SAME internal war spawned the engaging
Stassen-Ball-Burton group of younger Re-
publicans and it was nice to have a lot of differ-
ert kinds of Republicans. The party was the
richer for it. But these younger limbs have also
been cut off in Wisconsin, along with Mr.
Willkie. Republican leaders may soon find they
have a new public-relations problem on their
hands, that their party has become a little
smaller, a little more special, a little more stan-
dardized, a little naked and quite a lot duller.
But actually, the party may have lost some-
thing in Wisconsin, whiel it would have been
statesmanship to try to retain. The party has
scissored off its connecting links with large
blocks of fresh-minded, independent voters.
It has become a somewhat more exclusive
organization than it was. It has cut some-
thing o0 of itself and thrown it away, the
subject of such an operation can only be
smaller when it is all over, not bigger.
These are some of the problems which are
going to face the Republican party, as soon as its
victory jubilation cools off enough for it to
realize that, after all, it did not defeat the Demo-
crats in Wisconsin: it only defeated a part of

WASHINGTON, April 10.-Only a few on the
inside know it, but part of our political failure
in Italy, now contributing to the Italian stale-
mate, goes back to this government's failure to
work with Italio-Americans here at home.
Inside story of what happened goes back to
last summer, when several Italo-American lead-
ers, met with this columnist and with Sumner
Welles, then Undersecretary of State, regarding
propaganda plans to help take Italy out of the
war in a hurry.
This was at about the time Sicily was in-
vaded. These Italo-American leaders pro-
posed: (1)to broadcast messages to Italy urg-
ing their friends and relatives to help the Al-
lies; (2) to raise about $20,000,000 in the
United States from Italo-Americans to help
feed and clothe the Italian people, thus free-
ing the U.S. Government of a considerable
However, to raise money for a foreign country
in wartime requires State Department sanction,
and here the committee struck a snag. Charley
Taft, brother of the Senator and in charge of
such State Department matters, refused to ap-
prove the drive to raise $20,000,000 until certain
Italians were brought into the picture.
He wanted to include Hollywood actor Don
Ameche, child specialist Angelo Patri and or-
chestra leader Arturo Toscanini. However, Taft
also wanted to bar wealthy Generoso Pope from
serving on the committee, because Pope was once
decorated by Mussolini and was considered pro-
Finally, it leaked out that the real fight was
between the Sidney Hillman and David Dubin-
sky wings of the American Lallor party. Both

let the dispute drag on for months. Meanwhile.

To the Editor:
Miss Groberg has made serious
errors for a woman defending wo-
men. She has attempted (1) to re-
duce Mr. Rosenberg himself to an
absurdity and 2) to confound the
issue which he judiciously raised in
thrusting Sheila into the glare of the
public eye.
The intellectual integrity and
Thoreau-like didacticism of the gen-
tleman in question have rendered
her first attempt futile; you cannot
reduce Truth to an absurdity-not
even to an et cetera. By clarifying a.
problem which she has obfuscated
with personalities, I hope to counter-
act the effects of her second attempt.
This is not a question of Bernard's
intelligence as contrasted with Shei-
la's ignorance. Certainly it is not a
debate as to whether or not Sheila
should retain her wardrobe.
It is a denunciation of Ignorance
and Indifference at all times and
all places. It is a plea to the wo-
mhen of the world who have buried
their minds in the trivia of SO-
CIAL-ology to begin to shoulder
their part of the world's despair.
We have no right to enjoy the
benefits of those who struggle for
the good if we do. not arm our
minds for the combat with evil.
It is our duty to rip the disguise
from the Sheila of today-even if
she be ourselves-and make her un-
worthy of Mr. Rosenberg's attack.

Democr(atic Trend..
They were singing "Oh, What a
Beautiful Morning!" at Democratic
headquarters the other day when the
news came in from Oklahoma. Psy
chologically, the Democrats had fig-
ured that a great deal was at stake
in the by-election race in Oklahoma's
Second Congressional District. Re-
sults in the other recent special races
had given the Republicans too much
basis for talking about a Republican
"trend," so the Democrats put energy
and money into this fight. The Re-
publicans did the same. The issue, as
agreed to by both sides, was about as
clear-cut as it could be: the New
The results were better than
most Democrats had anticipated.
W. G. Stigler, the Democratic can-
didate, carried the district by 4,000
votes; in 1942, the Democratic can-
didate had carried it by only 388.
But experienced political observers
are warning that these results in
Oklahoma should not be inter-

Report Ignores Regional Wage Differences

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT only succeeded in
confusing the issue when he published a
report by his top White House economic advisers
which said that price rises have been checked
and that the cost of living is lower now than it
was a year ago.
Of course, this is all well and good and very
much to be desired, but it does not mean that
everything is just ducky. However, FDR chooses
to put on rose-colored glasses, stick his tongue in
his cheek and say, "We must not jeopardize
these gains by any change of policy or relaxation
of effort . . . Obviously we should cling to the
policies and machinery which have served us so
effectively thus far."
BUT, the President also said that this state-
ment was based on a study of the nation as a

THESE statements are not necessarily true.
But they should be considered. and if found
to be valid, acted upon.
For instance, the CIO holds that the average
steelworker is now going in the hole 79 cents a
week, in spite of the highest weekly earnings in
his history. This might be true and it might not
be, but it should be thrashed out and, if found
to be a valid claim, adjustments should be made.
It's swell to be able to say that price rises have
been checked. But it does not mean inequalities

have been erased and that everyone has a just
share of the national income.
What is needed is an unprejudiced analysis
of conditions in various sections of the coun-
try an analysis that would be conducted on
the same high plane as the Baruch report on
rubber-an analysis that would be respected
by the special interest groups concerned.
It will probably be found that inequalities do
exist and that a revision of the Little Steel
Formula on a regional basis is necessary.
