NEW YORK, Feb. 9.-It is a kind of crude,
Tammanyish approach to say that the Soviet
state has split itself into 16 republics, independ-
ent asto foreign olc and m~ilitary mage
mnent, for the sak~e of securing 16 +votes at thie
peace table. That is a ward-heeler's analysis,
and it displays the ward-heeler's special qual-
ities of intense shrewdness and intense blindness.
Somet~ing f~ar more cox-pplex than a vote-
grab is intenided. First of all, the nely Soviet
move br'eak~s the pre-war internationaIl
formation, in which one communist state stood,
in ideological isolation, against many capital-
ist states. It is now a case of many and many.
So long as it was a case of the one and the
many, an ineradicable taint of temporariness
hung over the soviet experiment. The one ex-
ception in an otherwise orthodox world m~ust
always seein like a freak, a sport, an entity
which has not quite proved its right to life.
But now that it is 'a case of tile many 'and
the ma~ny, this old one-sided mathematical rela-
tionship is broken down; it beomnes a case of
ninnfy- Soviet states engaged in intricate and
comnplex relationships with mnany capitalist
states; the Soviet system no longer rests on one
b~ase, but can sixteen; and thus its political right
to live in the world is aifirnec and strengthened.
We ba a sonjtinies th~ought that the Soviets
miht try o eize another European country,
sjjch s Grniwpiy, and turn it co init. in
order to cure tI iselves of politicalloineliness;
tlin, at least, there wQid be1t L o. The lss-
sinsha.ve surrised us by turniing inward in-
stead of outward to ieve this effect. - Th~ey
ill politial tprns, is not miuch different, though
it is a-- at eal r1r. r~palaable to the world,
thi i the p1)fet hadJbeen abtalned by out-
ward expan~sion.
The economic heterodoxy of the one becomes
the economlic orthodoxy of sixteen. If this seems
lily a bizarre way to have expanded the Soviet

system, let us remember that reproduction by
division is a commonplace in the biological
world, and that it proves, under the microscope,
to be a very efficient method of reproduction in-
deed. You actually do get a lot o~f offspring
that way,
Let us remember, too, that it is a prime article
of the Soviet faith that to stand still, politically,
is to die. We might, say that both we and the
Soviets believe in evolution, but that we like to
wait and have it happen to us, while the Soviets,
proud of what they call" the science of history,"
rather preen themselves on out-guessing evolu-
tion, speeding it, and making it happen.
Red Star, the Soviet Army organ, and Red
Fleet, the Soviet Navy paper, and all other lead-
ing Soviet journals agreed last week, that to have
sixteen ambassadors in each foreign country,
one from each of the Soviet republics, and to
have eachl foreign country distribute sixteen
ambassadors, in turn, among the sixteen Soviet
states, is exactly what tlije Soviet government
wants. It wants complexity. It deliberately
seeks it.
For, in the Soviet view, political progress is
precisely this, the rise from more simple to more
complex forms. Mr. Molotov said it, in his ex-
Rlanatory statement: "The Soviet state has
reached a newv level in its development, urning
into a more complex and virile organlism." It is
ridding itself of the perils of oneness. Charac-
teristically, it is doing so without giving up the
advantages of unity, for one party will still con-
trol' al.
The new move is a profound maneuver to-
ward naturalizing the Soviet system among the
permanencies of the world; a move toward the
end of singleness, freakishness and isolation.
Those wvho see in it only a grab for 16 votes at
the peace table have seen only the shadow of
what is here to be seen.

FRONT PAGE headlines are not
alwvays infallible indications of
the most imnportant news happening
in the world.
Last week, for instance, the De-
partment of State established a Sci-
ence, Education and Art Division
which will have as its aim th~e streng-
teigof internationial cooperation
in cultural fields.
This new division on Science,
Education and Art will be coordi-
nated with the already established
departments of motion pictures
and radio. And for the first time
in the history of education, the
departments will be coordinated by
Assistant Secretary of State G.
Howlandi Shaw upder a 4efiIxilg
Government officials in education
are now consulting with outstanding
school leaders on meeting immediate

and post-war educational problems.
But even more significant for the
establish~ing of international copera-
tion on education is the fact that 30
of the most influent~ial groups in th~e
country 'adopted a program asking
for im~mediate action in setting u.p aI
temp~orary United Nationls educa-
tional agency and recommended that
a permanent international organiza-
tion of educational and cultural d~e-
velopmnent should be set up as soon
as possible.
.Such an organization would at-
tempt to restore educational services
in nations now ocqupied by the Axis
as well as in countries where educa-
tion has been severely curtailed 'by
tine war.
Included in these policies adoptedl
by the State Department and Liaison
Committee for International Educa-
tion are the points te~at the 'scope
and purpose of any national program
of education is to be decided' by the

govenment concerned.,rand that thec
provision of books, teachiing supplies,
and school facilities is an essential
element of a total program of relief
and rehabilitation.
According to Benjamin Fine, writ-
ing in th~e New York Times for Sun-
day, Fcb. G. the newly-created Sci-
ence, Education aind Arts Division
will have responsib~ility in mnatters
pertaining to international coopera-
tion in science, eduication and art
along six lines:
"(1 Exchiange of materials, in-
cluding books,.periodicals and
other prinited materials in the var-
ious fields of learning and art.
(2) Development of American li-
braries and schiools in foreign coun-
(3) Administration of cultural in-
(4) Admiinistration of programs
for aiditng special research and
teaching projects in Amecrican col-
leges and universities abroad.
(5) Cooperation with American
]participating in inter'nationlal curl-
tural act ivi ties.
(6i) Liaison with the Office of
Eduication, tMe Coordinator of In-
'ter-American Aff~airs and sucJh
other departmnents and ag-encies as
may be concerned."

WiINQTQN, Feb. 9.-It didn't leak out at

rivalled the famous splurge which $exnie Barzuch

One of the five, Russell ofGeorgia, was isig
but the others-fewocrats--"HIappy" Chan d-
ler of Kentucky and Jim Meade of New'Fyork,
and Republicans Brewster of Maine ;an !odge
of Masachusetts-weare present, together with
about 20 adinfrats.
The 4innier probably cost around ten dollars
a plate an-d was reported by tho)se present to
have been just about as ornate as that given for
the Harry Hopkinses,
Somec of the world-tou~ring Senators had been
alijt critical of the Navy, anmd apparently Stee-
" re~tary K(pipx wauted to put them in a friend-
1he fr Jrinc qo' ind. Also, he wanted the as -
se ledl Adur# to gvt ib~e benefit voftheir
views and4 to hear first hand what 1the Senators
thought about the Navy's various opcrtions.
To that end, he called on each Senator for a
speech, somewhat i the manner th at the kus-
sians call on their distnguished guests at i-an-
All wenxt well until "Happy" Ch?,ndler slpoce.
His l'e-narks slid not make the Secretary of the
Navy very happy, for he waxed :vehement againist
the British, niaintaining :that they werQ e rum.'i t%
the war for their own benefit, regardless of the
interests of their allies.
After Chand4er andthe other Sentors hadl
fimishcd, Secretary KnoQx ruose and diplorna4tc-
lie pouited out thoit we and l ~he I>ritish were
fighting the war together, that it 4idu:'t pay
to criticize the British, and that-'doubtless the
British could find some faults with us at times.
Senator Cljwd Icr sat on Knox's righit and,
during his speech, k~ept taltng in stage whispers
about the British. Finally, when Knox was
finzished, Chandler rose an~d made a ;few final
renariks, event morccritical.
Knox, a good newspaper publisher but not
the best public speaker in the world, continued
to be diplomatic, but needed help. So he called
on Vice-Admiral Fred H~orne.
"Admiral Horne," he said, "will now pronounce
the benediction."
Admiral H~one .was brief -but not too -helpful.

Fourth Termt Hint . .
Representative Adolph Sabath of Illinois,
white-haired "Dean" of the House, got a signifi-
cant earful on the fourth-term riddle in a heart-
,to-heart talk with the President the other day.
Roosevelt brought up the subject himself and,
while he made no direct admission that he
would accept another nomination, he indicated
1that he was thinking it over.
His remarks were prompted by a confidential
revelation that Sabath, chairman of the import-
ant Rules Committee, was considering retiring
from Congress after this term.
"I am getting to be a pretty old man, Mr.
President," Sabath said. "I will be 78 years old
in April and have served in Congress 38 years.
That is a long time, and my wife thinks I am
entited to a few years rest before I pass
Roosevelt perked uip his ears. Sab~ath is one
of his oldest and closest friends. Also, he has
exerted a powerful influence for tihe Adminis-
tration in the "unruly" Rules Committee, which
is packed with anti-Nlew Deal conservatives.
"What are you talking about, Adlph?" ex-
claimed the ]Vresident. "You are a lot more
active and fit, than namy of your younger Col-
leagsaes. Besides, cvd1C(you ill Conlgress. I
_ opn't think of letting you retire, You just
send your wirfe to me and let e tOlk to 1her if
she beeps inlsisting on it."
Then the President added, with a grin, ;"You
know, somne people arpe puttinig some pressure 011
me to remain in office also."
H-e looked intently at Sabath for his, reaction,
an the Illinoisan, a strong fourth-termer, was
quick to take advanltage of the opening.
"Well, youi are a younger man than I," he
remark~ed. "You shouldn't hbe lecturing me
about remaining in omice unljess you practice
wh,1at-you preach."
Roosevelt laughed and then leaned back con-
templatively in his chair. He said something
to the effect that he wasn't as young as he used
to b~c. "All right," continued Sabath. "I am
{going to tell you what you have just told me-
only you have far mnore reason to remain in
office for another term than I have. You simply
can't retire now. The most important workt of
your life lies ahead in the next year or two-that
of winning the peace after we have won the wvar.
Aside from polities or any duty some people
may feel that you owe to your party, you have
Ia much greater responsibility to your country
and to the world."
Roosevelt smiled cryptically but didn't argue
the point.
