Hitlerg Warns Nazis of
Possible Red Victory
ADOLPH HITLER in his speech 'Suday which
was given on the eleventh anniversary of the
Nazis' assumption of power, warned the German
people of the possibility of a Russian victory,
which he said would result in the total destruc-
tion of Germany.
It seems strange to notice how much Hitler's
tone has changed during the past year. It was
not long ago when the -question he had 'to
answer was how soon-Germany would be victor-
ious and not whether or not she would be.
Hitler repeatedly and sombely admitted the
possibility of German defeat. However, he
mentioned once that "our victory in this con-
flict is not an article of faith but an inner-
most certainty." Even so he did not dare say
much about this certain victory, hnor did he
resort to the hysterical sort of screaming so
characteristic of his speeches in the past,
Hitler tried to bolster Germhan morale by tell-
ing the people how much m'ore difficult had
been the struggle of the Nazi party to get into
the position it holds today than is the present
struggle in which that nation is engaged.
Hitler couldn't think of anything encouraging
to tell his people about their own country, so he
tried to exaggerate the problems of the United
States. He said that after this war there will
be a question as to whether or not the United
htates will be able to resist Bolshevism at home.
Though the speech probably was not very ef-
fective from the standpoint of raising Germ a
morale, it should have done a lot for inorale
right here in the United States. The speech
tos given in Hitler's secret headquarters be-
hind closed doors There was no audience. We
should take heart from Hitler's warning about

WASHINGTON, Feb. 1.--It is still a long way
from the Republican convention in Chicago, but
leading GOPeers have already doped out what
will happen there.
They figure that Willkie will go into the con-
vention with about one-third of the delegates.
Dewey with another third, and Bricker with an-
other third. Then there will be a deadlock.
The other day, Jimmy Reynolds, former sec-
retary of the Republican National Committee,
was asked by a Republican Senator about South-
ern delegates.
"They're not for sale," grinned Reynolds
"Who's got 'em?" the Senator pressed.
"They're not for sale," Reynolds stuck to his,
It has been a well-known secret in GOP circles
for some time that Senator Taft has carefully
corralled the Southern delegates, and they will
go into the convention for Bricker, Later, of
course, they may switch to Taft.
However, regardless of Bricker-Taft shifts,
the convention is sure to be deadlocked into
two general groups-the conservative-isola-
tionists represented by the Dewey-Taft crowd,
and the liberal-interventionists represented by
Result is that some of the leaders are already
looking around very quietly for a man whom
both sides will take. So far, the man they have
scrutinized with greatest care is Senator Harold
Burton of Ohio, for three terms Mayor of Cleve-
An independent Republican, he led the fight
of the B2 H2 Senate group (of which he was a
member) for a non-partisan Senate resolution
endorsing the Moscow agreement and a strong
American policy for a cooperative peace.
Argentine Break with Axis,..
Inside story on Argentina is that, on Friday,
Jan. 21, the State Department prepared a blist-
ering statement on the double question of Bolivia
and Argentina-refusing to recognize the new
Isolationism Will Not
Re '44 -Campaign issue
"!WE HAD thought that isolationism was dead
long ago, even in the pages of that arch-
isolationist publication-the Chicago Tribune.
But no, the spectre rears its ugly head. The
hue and cry is heard once more.
A front page cartoon in the Sunday Trib-
une called "Isolationist and Interventionist"
pictures Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, and
Wilson as taking "the isolationist side." Roose-
velt is shown betraying the fathers and moth-
ers of the country. As an interesting sidelight,
Willkie admits that his 1940 pre-election
speeches which accused Roosevelt of heading
the country into war were only campaign ora-
Also interesting are the pat definitions of
isolationist and interventionist. "One," the Trib-
tine says, "keeps us out of foreign-wars, the other
gets us into foreign wars."
We have a feeling that we've been through all
this before. There are the same old accusa-
tions, propaganda and name-calling that were
rampant in the 1940 campaign. It is the same
old story.
It seems that Mr. McCormick has started his
1944 campaign in dead earnest, but with a de-
cided lack of ogiginality.
The issue is dead and has been since Dec. ',
1941. Mr. McCormick will find that it is futile
to attempt its resurrection. The people of the
United States are looking, not back at the pst,
but forward toward the future

government of Bolivia, and blaming Argentina
for interfering in Bolivian affairs,
That statement was sent across the street
to the White House, where it lay for more than
a day, awaiting the President's approval. If
Roosevelt approved, the U.S. planned to punish
Argentina by freezing all her credits in the
U.S.A., which would have been the most severe
action ever taken by this country against an
American nation since the Good Neighbor
policy was inaugurated,
But the President did not flinch. He had been
goaded for months by Secretary of the Treasury
Morgenthau and by public opinion. It never
leaked out but, once before, the Administration
was ready to crack down on Argentina, while
Secretary of State Hull was in Moscow. But
when Under Secretary Ed Stettinius wired his
chief in Moscow, Hull radioed back that, under
no circumstances, must there be any move
against Argentina.
This time, however, both Hull and Roose-
velt agreed, and the White House okayed the
document Saturday afternoon, sent it back to
the State Department. Plans were laid for its
release on Sunday. This would have frozen
all Argentine funds at the opening of banks
Monday morning.
However, it meant that certain State Depart-
ment officials, particularly in the current in-
formation division, would have to forego their
Sunday rest and put in extra time releasing the
story on Sunday. So the withering blast at
Argentina was delayed until Monday noon.

NEW YORK, Feb. 1.-If it should seem to
you that Mr. Churchill and Mr. Eden are walk-
ing on eggs in their handling of the Russian-
Polish dispute, your feeling is quite correct.
They are walking on eggs. They have to,
And it must appear very strange to some
Americans, to observe the Prime Minister and
the Foreign Secretary of Great Britain be-
having with such extreme caution. Why don't
they imntac ethe courage of some American
editors, who are not nearly so afraid, and who
would solve the whole problem by simply tell-
ing Russia to go to hell? Why don't they?
Can it be that Mr. Churchill has less courage
than 'Mr. Hearst?
I refuse to admit that explanation. Let him
who will call Mr. Churchill a coward; I wish to
be only a spectator when that happens.
Well, then, what can the matter be? If this
is not a failure of nerve on Mr. Churchill's part,
what is it? Not to hide the real reason from
you any longer, the fact is that Mr. Churchill
has glimpsed the sullen face of reality in Eastern
Europe. He knows that to dispute Russia's claim
to a secure western border makes it at once
absolutely mandatory for Russia to insist on
having one.
The formal assertion of anybody else's right to
dictate Russia's western border would force
Russia to dictate that border herself. The more
that third parties tried to mix in, the more com-
pellingly necessary it would seem to Russia to
demonstrate that third parties had no real power
in these premises.
Strangely enough, the more frankly the third
parties admit that Russia has a real right to
security on her western frontier, the less pressing
does the whole question become; for that ad-
mission gives Russia the substance of security;
she no longer has to concern herself so much
with the form of it. It is like pressing back ,
steel spring with one's open hand; the harder
you push, the harder the counter-push.
So Mr. Churchill walks on eggs. He is not
less brave than any American editor. The thing
is that Mr. Churchill has looked upon the naked
face of truth. He knows that a real hard shove
against Russia on this issue means not the end

of Russia, but the end'of Poland; Russia would
c compelled to move in, all the way, regardless
of the consequences, and even if she didn't want
to. it is really Poland's brains that some of our
editors are beating out, with their counsel of
-There is no 'real connection, but some current
attitudes on soldier voting seem similar to these
attitudes on Poland. There has been the same
kind of divorcement from reality; the same brave
wild flailing out; the same kind of hayinakers
swung in the fond belief that there is only one
target in the world and that his na-ne is Roose-
velt. But it turns out that soldiers really want
to vote, through a uniform federalized ballot.
The more Mr, Roosevelt has been defeated oil
this issue, the stronger has he grown.
(Copyright, 1944, New York Post Syndicate)

"-And when I think of our 8.000,000 gallant votes-er--soldiers-
I'shaw! It's certainly difficult to keep one's mind on the war
during election year!"

and courage which her singing so
well displayed.
Miss Lawrence, who was stricken
with infantile paralysis several
years ago just as she was reaching
the height of her career, has staged
a magnificent comeback as her pro-
gram so easily testified. Unlike so
many great people who are forced
to give up their life's work and then
take it up again with their ability
gone, Miss Lawrence is doing a
splendid job; and .unlike many is
not trading on her former reputa-
It is not possible to say that she
has the voice she had five years ago,
but this reviewer is sure that sev-
eral years from now, when she has
fully recovered from her illness, Miss
Lawrence will again be one of the
leading operatic sopranos in America.
At the present time she is handi-
capped by the way in which she must
present her program for it hinders
her power, volume, and resonance,
and she still lacks the strength to
carry a full program while traveling.
Gordon Manley assisted Miss
Lawrence at the piano and also
filled in the program with a few
selections for the piano. His posi-
tion was a difficult one in that peo-
ple were there to hear Miss Lawr-
ence and were not particularly in-
terested in the pianist, but despite
this he was very well, received and

Certainly Miss Lawrence deserves
to receive every possible commenda-
tion for the program she sang so
well. The works which she chose to
do were difficult ones and taxed her
strength greatly, but she was not in-
capable of handling them beautifully.
She sang with a genuine spirit and
artistic feeling which gave those
present the feeling that they had not
often heard such a great woman sing
so well. -Jean Athay

TIHA'TEMINENT Michigan Congressman, Rep.
Clare Hoffman, is on the pro-fascist rampage
Now he wants a "march on Washington,"
and the use of armed forces if necessary to
"put an-end to 'playing at war' lrere at home."
The statement which offman made was,
"The day is here when the American people
by a march on Washington, by the use of the
armed forces which are in this country must,
if either be necessary, put an end to 'playing

What are the boys over there and the people
