EV E )CP of temperament on religion is
a ias tinig theme. In a stimulating book
x hlogy, Dr. William H. Sheldon dis-
uss t e types of plersonality: The wasters
ho tr down patterns they find either in
Ihemselves or in groups; the epimethians, or fol-
01r wo Canl conserve, confirm and aid but
not crcat ivc. Theicy fall short in imagination,
iiora-L eourpe and inventiveness. The third type
'wnmed after Prometheus, the fire-finder of
nay reece. Promethean souls are explor-
..Lx e, able to lead, can bring things to pass, have
persoality and are destined, as it were, both
to (1reae , new outlook and make their dreams
VI'diu is available to all of these, not just
lo ti' jpromefians. The wasters will practice
loyaity in a weak and irregular fashion, but
.ey must be considered within striking dis-
a Y of a religion. The followers, that vast
majuritjy of mankind, no doubt constitute the
19 soid center of humanity. They give stability
r 1 stitt5 and continuity to civilizations. With
them, religion becomes a fellowship, a church,
a tradition. Such virtues as faith, forgiveness,
hariy, magnanimity and love of righteous-
ness and truth as well as dominant purpose,
w:estviy to the needs of others, social obliga-
Sr a sacrifice are aspects of the religion to
hih the epimethians aspire and may attain.

As for the promethean members of society,

ions in art, oratory, poetry, invention, re-

And :11 adventure of ideas is oyerpowered. by

lows, they are lonely. Such rare prometheans as
Plato, Isaiah, Aquinas or Tolstoy even remake

WA1~SINGTON, Jan. 16.-On the day Con-
eV5 rt(onvened, the President spent almost two
Illurs dis(cussing legislative problems with the
Congressional "Big Four"-Vice-President Wal-
lae, Spaker Sam Rayburn, Senate Majority
L ader Aihen Barkley and House Majority Lead-
or John McCormack.
However, the tone of the meeting was not as
serious as the leaders let on to newspaper men
when they filed out. There were several good
Tup'hs. Roosevelt greeted his Capitol Hill chief-
tains with the remark:
"Well, I sure am glad to see Congress back
in session. Believe it or not, I've missed you."

Pd Raither
Be Right_
NEW YORK, Jan. 16 - It is an odd thing, but
the de Gaulle movement, to which we have given
only a grade-B recognition, is going to turn out
to be the strongest of the "exiled" governing
agencies in the end.
Look what we tried to do for King Peter's
Yugoslav government-in-exile! We have held it
to our bosoms, we have coddled it with recogni-
tion, we have surrounded it with our ministers,
we have signed treaties with it.
Yet it is breathing with difficulty. On some
evenings it hardly looks as if it will last out the
night, Two years ago it was the symbol of Yugo-
slav unity. Now, no matter how we rub it up,
it will not shine.
What is this mysterious power which seems
to mock our choices among the exiles? It is,
of course, the plain people of Europe. Behind
the enemy lines, in Yugoslavia, they have formed
themselves into the Partisan movement. It is a
movement broad enough to include everybody
from Communists to priests. As it has broad-
ened, with its promise of a federated democratic
Yugoslav state, the government of King Peter,
though a thousand miles away, has shrunk. The
people of Yugoslavia have been able to knock
Peter down in London, though they themselves
seemed to be prisoners of the Germans. In spite
of Hitler they have, in effect, voted; they have
voted by fighting, they have voted by organizing.
The plain people of Yugoslavia have turned out
to be strong enough to veto the plans of both
their enemies and their friends. They can con-
trol events in London, even while Hitler is sitting
on them.
In much the same way, we have hugged and
kissed, cherished and admired, the Greek gov-
ernment of King George. We have recognized
it; have stamped it with our Great Seals; we
have made it as legal as a Bank of England note.
And nothing could have seemed less legal,
or more feeble than the opposition to King
George in Greece. It consists of at least two,
maybe three, guerrilla movements, starved by
the Germans and currently engaged in fight-
ing each other. But because none of these
movements wants King George back, the same
cloud that hangs over Peter's head, now hangs
over George's, too. King George of Greece
has had to promise to abide by a plebiscite
after the war, and Anthony Eden has ex-
pressed his gratification over this decision.
The hungry people of Greece have held a kind
of shadow election, too; and great men of
empire are yielding to the result of it.
It is only a few months since Winston
Churchill declared, in a speech, that'he favored
the restorations of both Kings Peter and George.
He held one of these monarchs high, in eah
hand, in public. His decisions have been 'revised
by nameless men in the Ballgans who do not have
a spare pair of drawers they can call their own.
And de Gaulle, whom we have never fully rec-
ognized, becomes more legal by the minute. The
stone that the builders repected is sitting pretty.
That is because the French people want him; an
unofficial reason, my masters, but a conclusive
I offer these data to the heavily liberal think-
ers among us, who keep nudging each other with
the dismal question: "What are we going to do
with Europe?" Europe is a political nothing,
they moan; it is a nullity, a vacuum; it is the
hole in the power doughnut.
Relax, kids. The plan for Europe is going to-
come out of Europe. We couldn't dream it up,
anyway. Could we, by taking thought, have
invented the Partisans? Europe created them,
while we were concocting meaningless new
federations, etc.
Our sole power over the future of Europe is
the power to join with the right movements.
When we try to join the wrong ones, we find
ourselves with no power. And I'm that kind of

a democrat, for I think being that kind of a
democrat is a business with a future.

on the southbound train was the engineer, and
he was unaware of what had happened to his
own train. He had left the cab to work on
some couplers which had been pulled apart,
thus separating various cars on the train. He
did not know that three cars of his train had
left the track and were tilted across the north-
bound track.
Why the conductor did not get word to the
engineer,and why the fireman did not succeed
in flagging the other train, as he is supposed to
do in any case, probably resulted from just one
The ICC report will probably lay the blame
not only on individuals but on a general con-
dition in railroading today. The roads are
carrying a heavier burden than ever before in
history. Yet, instead of having more men on
the job, they have fewer.
That is one argument sure to be used in Con-
gress in favor of a national service act which
would freeze men in essential industries and per-
mit the railroads to draft more men when they
need them.

"it's a great break for us that the Republi-

Dospie the Army's high-handed tactics in
suppressing details regarding the Atlantic Coast
Line wreck (72 persons killed, many more in-
jured, the Interstate Commerce Commission is
about to lift the veil of mystery.
IL now seems'- clear that the wreck was
Ia'used because the southbound train, Tami-
ami Champion, was manned largely by an in-
expe.7rienced crew. The train of 15 cars and
50a : passengers was captained by a conductor
only 30 years old, W. W. Carson.
The fireman, whose duty it was to get on
hecad of the derailed southbound train to warn
tile on-rushing northbound train, was J. W.
IBateclor, age 31. This is not too young for a
fireman, but it is significant that he had had
only three years of experience. He was hired on
Deca. 27, 1940.
On the other hand, thousands of rail work-
ers haye been drafted, and the railroads are

O THAT mud-slinging servicema'n
I write this note: "Name-calling
appeals to prejudices and leads to
the formation of conclusions without
an examination of the pertinent evi-
dence. The importance of this tech'-
nique was emphasized after the
World War by a propagandist for
public utilities. When asked what he
would do to bring about the defeat
of a Senatorial candidate who fav-
ored government ownership of utili-
ties he replied: 'I would not try to
use logic or reason, I would just try
to pin the Bolshevik label on him'."
Did you ever stop to consider that
Stan Wallace might have brothers,
cousins, or friends that are dear to
him in the armed service? And did
you ever stop to consider that he
had their welfare as well as the
country's welfare in mind when he
wrote those articles?

The Trite hacs
BEING a native New Yorker al-
though one who is not always in
agreement with the governmental
policies of that city, I was roused to
action when I read an editorial in
The Daily on Sunday, Jan. 9 en-
titled Known ProFascist Kept on
N.Y. Police Force. Through various
channels obviously much better in-
formed than Miss Miller's source I
found the following to be the true
facts of the case. It might be advan-
tageous for Miss Miller to note these
facts, and in the future be more
careful in her analysis of news items.
Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia did
not only "promise to look into the
matter when he had a chance," but
he found that chance within two
days. He appointed a non-political
committee of three to reinvestigate
this patrolman's conduct. The
committee found him not guilty of
the charges against him, and
therefore he, was completely exont
erated. -S. E, D*
