BARUCH PLAN:
Rapid Conversion .After
War Is Important Step
BERNARD M. BARUCH has done it again. His
intelligent, well worked out program, which
he has devised together with his assistant, John
M. Hancock, for fast reconversion of war indus-
tries to peacetime production, is an important
step in the fight'to preserve a lasting peace and
an efficient economy.
The whole plan boils down to the simple, but
sensible thesis that conversion must be rapid to
prevent a devastating depression and that ndus-
try must know what to -expect from the govern-
inent in order to plan for the future.
Baruch's proposals for a post-war tax pro-
gram that business can count upon, plans for
government loans to aid industry in reconver-
sion and the suggestion that a specific 'X-Day'
be designated arbitrarily for the defeat of
Germany and the beginning of real reconver-
sion, are especially important.
Immediate action should be taken by Congress
on Baruch's recommendations. - Ray Dixon
FORTUNATE:
Hobuse Sustains Veto,
Subsidies To Continue
YESTERDAY the House of Representatives
sustained President Roosevelt's veto of the
anti-subsidy bill.
It is extremely fortunate that the President
realized the need for subsidies to fight infla-
tion and thus vetoed the repealer, and that
there were a few Congressmen who realized
that we are at war.
As a result the House was short 25 votes of the
two thirds majority necessary to override the
veto, and food subsidies, which are so vitally
needed now in wartime, will continue.
- Louise Comins
UNNECESSARY:
Revised Bankhead Bill
Threatens Free Press
A RENOVATED Bankhead bill providing for
government payments to newspapers for
publishing war bond advertising was reported
favorably by the House Ways and Means Com-
rhittee.
Supported only by a group of smaller pub-
lishers, mostly small cities, and by politicians
seeking to curry favor with newspapers in their
districts, the previous Bankhead measure was
passed in the Senate by a narrow margin last
November, and then killed in a House committee
a few weeks later.
In its revised version, the bill provides for
$15,000,000 in federal funds to be distributed
to newspapers in cities having a population of
25,000 instead of the 10,000 maximum stipu-
lated in the first measure.
The same objections which applied to the pre-
vious measure pertain to the renovated bill. ' In
the first place, such a government subsidy would
greatly endanger the cherished freedom of the
press, opening the path for political pressure.
In the second place, such a subsidy is entire-

inicSays
THE PERSONALITY which may be said to be
religious constitutes a major inquiry today.
The George Meade idea of "symbolic interaction"
is significant. This theory makes the personality
dependent upon group fellowship quite as much
as upon the private aim, faith or aspiration.
Assuming the person and assuming the con-
genial group, what is essential for religious
growth or growth toward religiousness? The fol-
lowing aspects are enumerated by W. L. Troyer
in the July, 1943, issue of Religious Education:
(1) Voluntary participation in commonly
shared ends and activities. (2) Completeness
and intimacy of association. (3) Variety and
range of stimuli and suggestion. (4) Devotion
to the realization of ideal possibilities. (5)
Deliberate rather than impulsive method in
dealing with problems, conflicts and crises.
(6) Unity in an organizing perspective capable
of giving meaning and value to specific phases
of life. The great Cooley spoke on "self-feeling
with others." John Dewey said "the individual
becomes alert to recognize the special aims of
the group and the means to be employed in
securing success." (Democracy and Education,
p. 16-17). So much for a non-theological
approach.
Jesus identified worship and such personal
conduct as "eternal life" and the ultimate
social goal as the "Kingdom of God." By
prayer to God and practice of such a search
for meaning, one can court religiousness with
much more precision of soul than without
these or similar directives.
In a period of great tension, as in war, there
is opportunity for us to test either theory and
observe one's own progress. The opportunity is
two-fold: (1) In the intimate face-to-face group
and the close secondary fellowship, we actually
can do an experiment in religiousness. (2) On
the world scale, we should try to see one social
phenomena of interaction among the Allied
leaders who are friends and see the opposite type
of behavior dramatically exhibited between insti-
tutionalized enemies.

-MERRY-GOROUND
WASHINGTON, Feb. 20.-Bob Hannegan, re-
cently elected chairman of the Democratic Nat-
tionai Committee, has tackled his tough new job
with a touch of iron beneath his contagious
smile.
He is calling on every member of the Cabinet,
including Republicans Stimson and Knox, to
ask their cooperation on jobs for Democrats.
He intends to bolster the Democratic party,
and one good old-fashioned way of bolstering
it is through patronage.
How he makes obit with Secretaries Stimson
and Knox, who have loaded their War and Navy
Departments up with Republicans, remains to
be seen. Nevertheless, Hannegan says he is going
to tackle them. He assumes that, since they are
serving under President Roosevelt, they want
him re-elected for a fourth term.
The indomitable Hannegan is also cleaning
out the Democratic National Committee and
has even bearded Mrs. Roosevelt's own per-
sonal pet inside the committee, Lorena Hic-
kock. The women's division, in which Miss
Hickock is active, raised only $30,000 last year,
but spent$70,000for expenses to raise it. Han-
negan thinks this is poor economics and he has
told the ladies that they will have to cut down
their payroll or up their contributions-per-
haps both.
Also he is serving notice on gentle Mrs. Charles
W. Tillett, assistant chairman of the committee,

that since she is paid a regular salary, she will
have to work full time and earn it, not spend
most of her time at her home in North Carolina.
Question of Farley . .
One place where smiling Bob is going to have
trouble, however, is with Jim Farley. The two
men met not long ago, and Jim expressed great
pleasure over Hannegan's appointment. They,
got along famously. But one factor contributing
to their congeniality may have been Hannegan's
statement that, as chairman of the National
Committee, he expected to let State Democratic'
chairmen hand out federal jobs in their states.
For a long time, Jim Farley, though chair-
man of the New York State committee, hasn't
had even the smell of a post office. All federal
job assignments have been handled through the
President's old friend, Ed Flynn. This was a
definite and deliberate Farley snub by Frank
Walker and Flynn, with the okay of the White
House.
So now the big question is how Hannegan can
make good on his promise to let Farley pass out
federal jobs in New York. Obviously, Frank
Walker and Ed Flynn, to say nothing of FDR
himself, aren't going to let him do it.
As a result, Jim is either going to be fighting
mad, or else he will be a good party man and
come around to supporting whatever Demo-.

1d Rather
SBe Right
By SAMUEL GRAFTON
NEW YORK, Feb. 20.-During war we think
of the top German fascists as deadly enemies
who must be destroyed. What reason, if any,
exists for changing this attitude the moment
peace arrives?
Must we, on that day, stop thinking of Ger-
man fascists as deadly enemies to be destroyed,
and begin to think of them only as criminals
to be tried? Or perhaps not even as criminals,
but only as indicted men, presumed innocent
until proven guilty?
The only difference the coming of the armis-
tice should make is that it ought to give us the
right to substitute methods of peace for methods
of war in carrying out our policy. But our policy
must remain the same, the destruction of the
fascist power.
NO SOLUTION SHORT OF EXILE
That is why I see no solution short of the
instant and automatic exile, without trial, of,
say, the 100,000 top Nazi functionaries. That
alone can be the logical culmination of the war,
to be carried out as the final battle of the war.
The great danger is that we may tend to make
too sharp a differentiation between the period of
war and the period of peace. Our high political
policy should be a continuing policy, equally
valid for war and peace. The chief difference
between war and peace should be the difference
in methods used for carrying out our policy.
Naturally, methods change when the armistice
arrives, but policy itself need not change and
should not change.
WHY LET IT BECOME ANOTHER WAR?
It will be strange and wavering conduct on our
part to fight a desperate war for the purpose of
destroying fascism, and then, the moment we
win the war, change over to another purpose
entirely, that of putting fascists on trial for hor-
rible, condemnable, but still only collateral
offenses, called atrocities. But the most atrocious
fascists have probably committed no physical
atrocities.
How, then, shall we handle Julius Streichet,
publisher of the infamous and pornographic
"Der Stuermer," which has poisoned the minds
of a generation? Under the blearily legalistic
"trial" system, the worst we could probably do
to Streicher would be to deny him second-class
mailing privileges.
The proposal that we stage "trials," no matter
how well-meaning, is a proposal that we shall
not do what we are at war to do, the moment i
becomes possible to do it.
Let us keep our sights up. This is not a war
about atrocities, though atrocities have been
committed during the war. It is not a war about
the Hague Conventions, though the Hague Con-
ventions have been violated. It is 'a war about
fascism. If the coming of the armistice changes
our purpose, then it will not be an armistice, but
a subtle and concealed defeat..
THEY WILL SEE THE TRAINS LEAVE
,Let us keep our sights up: It is our job to dis-
mantle the Nazi Party as unemotionally and
methodically as we propose to dismantle Nazi
arms factories.
This is our task, by methods of war so long
as the Germans prefer war, by methods of
peace when they tire of fighting. The task
remains, through war and peace. We are lib-
erators, not judges. We are liberators, not
school teachers for the children of Germany.
We are liberators, and unless we liberate, un-
less we physically remove the fascist bureauc-
racy to a place of exile, all our schemes for
democratic schools and democratic trolley cars
and democratic porridge for the new Germany
will be window-dressing to hide a failure.
But if we do remove the fascist bureaucracy,
without trial, on mere identification, then all
these subordinate problems instantly become

more manageable. It will not seem nearly so
hard then to teach the German children that
fascism does not work. They will actually have
learned that lesson before they come to school.
They will have seen the trains leave, carrying the
fascists and fascism to the border and oblivion.

Ickes' Grammarian ...
Hard-hitting Economic Czar Judge Vinson has
been engaged in a tough verbal war over the price
of oil with equally hard-hitting Harold Ickes, but
they like and respect each other just the same.
Shortly after George Briggs, whom Ickes
previously had hired to peruse his letters for
errors in English, was indicted on a charge of
forging the Harry Hopkins letter, Vinson got a
stiff letter from Ickes. It was couched in 'pro-
verbial Ickes vitriol.
Judge Vinson read it over, was about to dictate
an equally hot reply, but finally remarked to his
secretary:
"I guess we'd better not take advantage of
Harold while his grammarian is in jail."
