Repeal of Subsidies Will
Not Benefit Farmers
THE BATTLE CRY of the anti-subsidy groups,
according to Time magazine, is: "Get your
cut now, boys."
The get - your - cut - now boys, composed
mainly of farmers and dairymen, certainly de-
serve to be called selfish and greedy. But they
deserve equally to be called shortsighted and
blind to their own interests.
Although there may be a temporary gain for
these groups from the rise in food prices, they
stand to lose in the long run. Apparently the
opponents of the subsidy plan fail to realize that
when food prices go up, wages must also go up.
The price of manufactured products must go up.
The whole economic structure will collapse
with the failure of price controls and the
World War I situation will be repeated with all
its disastrous aftermath. Agriculture, which
has never fully recovered from the crash of
the thirties, will again be the loser.
Food subsidies are not dangerous or radical.
They are a necessary wartime aid to the proper
functioning of a fr' economy.
Presrre groups may become drunk in infla-
tion now, but the post-war hangover will be
inevitable. Food subsidies are the only way out.

Congressional Repeal of
*Exclusion Act Is Hopeful
FAITH in Congress should be restored to some
extent now that the Senate has finally sent
the repeal for 61-year-old Chinese Exclusion Act
to the White House for signature.
Called "an historic mistake" by the Presi-
dent, the act will probably be repealed in spite
of Senator Reynolds' emphatic "No!" voice
vote. All it needs now is President Roosevelt's
While the bill allows only 105 Chinese to enter
yearly, under the quota system, it is indicative
of the fact that the American people do believe
in the ideals for which they are fighting.
Now our Chinese allies can look us in the eye
without thinking, "They talk big, but they don't

mean it." Now they can believe that there is an
equality of opportunity in the United States.
Maybe we can begin to believe that the color
of one's skin makes no difference.
Congress deserves a big bouquet for erasing a
smudge on the pages of American history.

Rumor of Allied Meeting
Is Encouraging Indication
PASSED by the cable censors during the last
week are two unconfirmed reports which pre-
dict an eminent meeting between the four great
Allied leaders, Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin and
Chiang Kai-Shek. Churchill and Stalin are said
to be conferring already.
Although the probability of such a confer-
ence is still in the rumor stage, its necessity
is growing with the passing of every day. If we

Doifien Says
JACQUES MARITAIN insists upon an education
oriented toward a goal which the imagination
alone can reach. He objects to an education
based on experiments or oriented toward the
realistic facts of man's long development and
divorced from the Deity concept. To learn about
the nerve system of animals, including man, to
exhaust the laws of biology, physiology and psy-
chology in an effort to discover how a human
infant is most apt to act in a given situation, is
germane. But this only brings us to the portals
of our problem. All learning is negative if it
stops there. Education must go on to ask, "How
discipline the infant so that he will perform at
his best? How make certain he will continuously
exercise that freedom of expression, of associa-
tion, of choice and of creativeness which will
spell the highest good for himself and the great-
est number?" It is in the reach of this adven-
ture that man becomes himself in the family of
God. Were the chances of error less, responsibil-
ity absent or eternity shortened to time, life
itself would be flat, for much of the pleasure of
becoming independent would be denied.
Carl Jung in his Psychology and Religion,
remarks that "The true history of the mind is
not preserved in learned volumes, but in the
living mental organisms of everyone." (p. 41).
At this point, one has to admit that religion,
unlike art, literature, philosophy and science,
goes.off the reservation, forsakes the concept
mind, and appeals to spirit. Is this done in the
hope of more complete mastery of issues,
or is that a means of circumventing the
problem? Very generally those who are reli-
gious in the traditional sense, will even main-
tain that mind confuses spirit, that revelation
moves by a medium beyond mind and that
grace is the course by which God imparts to
man His ability to grasp truth and to respond
LIBERALS in religion shift the emphasis and
maintain that spirit is nothing other than
mind, but is mind functioning to choose worth
or mind under the aspect of value. In that re-
gard, value is a good desired. The drive of the
organism is in it. It is interesting, therefore, to
have this leading Catholic scholar, Jacques
Maritain, put forth a series of brilliant lectures
on "Education at the Crossroad" in which he
projects not only problems of religion, but those
of science and creative will. In the last analysis,
all who are in education are bound in that sub-
lime trek so well described by David Allan
"Where is one that born of woman altogether
can escape
From the lower world within him, moods of
tiger and of ape?
Man as yet is being made, and ere the
crowding age in ages
Shall not aeon after aeon pass and touch
him into shape?
All about him shadow still, but-while races
flower and fade,
Prophet eyes may catch a glory slowly gain-
ing on the shade,
Till the peoples all are one, and all their
voices blend the choir,
Hallalujah to the Maker. It is finished.
Man is made."
Also, if we are to escape the pitfalls of pro-
fessional dogma, we will have to remind our-
selves that it is in the very nature of life itself
and the basic characteristics of mind that reli-
gion is at its best. It not only provides man with
a sense of salvation, but gives that perspective
from which arises a never-ending number of
fresh hypotheses. Research is of faith.

Yugoslav Maintains Allies
Need Firm Nazi Policy

THE EMPHATIC statement this week by the
Yugoslav foreign minister before the United
Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administra-
tion that "Germany should be accorded the
treatment she deserves" comes as no surprise.
He related the brutal manner in which Ger-
man occupation troops murdered and raped
his countrymen. His story is no new one, but
should shock some complacent Americans to
the realization that the United Nations can't
handle a defeated Germany with "kid gloves."
A weak school marm attitude will never solve
the German problem. Our policy must be firm,
our convictions resolute when the time comes for
the settlement of grievances.
This statement is indicative of the feelings
of all conquered and occupied countries. Those

I'd Rather
Be Right_
NEW YORK, Nov. 28.-Only one newspaper is
published in Naples. It is called "Risorgimento."
and operates under Allied control. For a time it
was a Badoglio sheet, but recently. (according to
press dispatches) it has been broadened. Now in
one and the same issue there can be found
articles supporting Badoglio, the monarchist,
but also articles attacking King Victor
Emmanuel, and even essays supporting Hum-
berto, that princeling who took up fascism in the
jaunty mood of a new college graduate taking a
flier in the b6nd business.
All this in one newspaper. To be sure, it has
been necessary to enlarge the sheet from two
pages to four pages, to make room for the various
points of view. That is not quite as good, of
course, as it would be to enlarge the Italian gov-
ernment so that it, too, might include more than
one point of view.
But "Risorgimento" fascinates me, for it re-
veals, once more, our passion for order. Great
forces are loose in Italy (as elsewhere) and we
are forever combing the hair of great forces, and
teaching them to mind their manners, and
otherwise making them presentable. We like
our great forces to behave themselves. If they
are good, they may have two columns on page
We do this in the name of unity, but I won-
der if what we really get isn't a kind of help-
less frozen disunity. The passion of the Ital-
ians for a democratic government is real. But
this popular passion is still not being given ex-
pression in the Italian government; it is being
kept on ice; it is being aged; it is becoming
older and more tired without ever being put
to use.z
The explanation is that we had to give
Badoglio the first franchise on power in order to
win Italy quickly. One might say that he has
had his chance and that we do not seem to be
winning Italy quickly. Maybe it is time now to
give the people of Italy their heads and see
what happens.
In a way, this prim business of combining pro
and con in one Italian newspaper reminds me of
Secretary Hull's suggestion that both major
American political parties should adopt identical
planks on foreign policy next year. That, too, is
a proposal framed in the spirit of exquisite
Like the plans for "Risorgimento," it is a pro-
posal which tends to deny, and degrade real dif-
ferences. What if the two parties do adopt iden-
tical foreign policy planks, and then one runs a
Colonel McCormick kind of candidate, while the
other leans more to "the Roosevelt or )AiillIle
Under Mr. Hull's pla, the question of for-
eign policy would be frozen, like the price of
The issue would be wrapped up and stored
away for the duration. It would be wrapped up
in a pair of identical resolutions. But those reso-
lutions can be written on a low level, or on a
middling level, or on a high level. The plan to
end competition between the two parties on
questions of foreign policy makes it almost cer-
tain that the resolutions would be written on a
low level.
Why bother to think too hard, when you can
knock the whole issue. out, and even convince
the public that there is no issue? The result, as
in other forms of restraint of trade, would be
mediocrity and stagnation. For an example, look
at Italy.
Twin resolutions here, and one newspaper
for both sides in Italy. Aren't we being a bit
tooformal, too prissy, and too orderly? Why
are we so afraid of dispute? Three years of
ferocious debate on foreign policy in America
have led to what dire result? Why, to the
almost unanimous passage of the Connally

resolution. Is that bad?
Perhaps if we stopped adjusting Italy's neck-
tie, and gave its popular forces the. right of way,
we might get something almost as good over
(Copyright, 1943, N.Y. Post Syndicate)
who have been trampled under the heel of
German ruthlessness will not easily forget.
These people who have felt the brunt of Axis
hate will raise an indignant voice. Their cries
cannot be ignored.
The free world is now thinking of the future.
Our thinking now will guide our actions. We
must be strong.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 28. - Most k
people think Standard Oil of Cali-
fornia was stopped six months ago
from pumping the Navy's Elk Hills
reserve. Fact is, however, that
Standard, with the consent of the
Navy, is still pumping oil.
It was back in June that Sec-
retary Knox admitted he had
"muffed it" and announced that
Navy and Standard were rescind-
ing the agreement. What actually
happened is that the two parties
turned up with a new operating
agreement, and while Congress
and the Justice Department scru-
tinize the new deal, Standard con-
tinues to operate Elk Hills.
However, those who have attended
the closed hearings of the House
Naval Affairs Committee realize that
Standard is about to be booted out of
Elk Hills by condemnation proceed-
ings. Thus the government will buy
the property which Standard thus
far has declined to sell.
Actually, the property was the
government's in the first, place, be-
fore it was granted free to Southern
Pacific Railroad, which sold it to
Standard of California.
What most people don't know is
that the President himself recom-
mended condemnation to the Navyr
more than one year ago. But the
Navy, for reasons best known to
itself, worked out a deal with
Standard which brought severe
criticism as another Teapot Dome
scandal - minus the little black
Because of this, Naval Affairs
Committee Chairman Vinson gave a
tongue-lashing to Rear Admiral H.
A. Stuart, the Navy's petroleum ex-
pert, in a closed session of the Com-
mittee. Stuart had been defending
the deal with Standard as "a good
agreement," but. Congressman Vin-
son had dug up a six-year-old state-
ment of Stuart's which told a differ-
ent story.
In 1937, Stuart had told a Sen-
ate committee that it "wouldn't
be a very good policy" to lease the
lands to Standard Oil, because
"they might get the most out of
their wells and not operate our
wells efficiently."
Vinson read the Admiral's words
to him, then closed with this punch,
quoting again from Stuart's own
testimony - "We would be open to
While all the talk goes on, Stand-
ard is producing oil from Elk Hills
for government use. The question is,
why should not the government pro-
cure its owni oil from its own prop-

If diplomatic procedure permitted,
Cordell Hull would like to sit on the
Polish Ambassador to keep him from
hurting the Moscow agreements.
While the echoes of applause
were still sounding in his ears, the
Secretary of State found that the
Polish Embassy in Washington was
not quite' as willing as he to accept
the Russian view of the Polish
So a statement was released to the
press "from Polish sources," declar-
ing that the Russian Army must
enter Poland as an ally, not as a
conqueror, or face desperate resist-
ance by the Poles.
This statement was cleared in ad-
vance by the Polish Government in
London, but was not referred to the
State Department in Washington.
In fact, when the Department heard
about it, they hit' the roof.
What Hul is earnestly trying to
do is to keep the Poles and Rus-
sians from saying nasty things
about each other, so that diplo-
matic relations may be restored
between them. Relations were
broken early this year when the
Polish Government put out a state-
ment indicating they thought the
Russians, rather than the Ger-
mans, had killed thes10,000 Polish
officers near Smolensk.
Hull was trying to use his influ-
ence to get Russia to restore recogni-
tion of the Polish Government, but
this latest blast by the Poles may
have upset the apple cart.
