No 'Good' Germans
WE AMERICANS ought to stop making a dis-
tinction between Nazis and freedom-loving
Germans. There are no freedom-loving Ger-
mans in Germany now. All were killed off by
the Nazis years ago. All that are left are a
bunch of weak-willed politically apathetic indi-
viduals who will jump at the loudest command.
Americans-the idealists, the people who suffer-
ed least from the war, the people who have a
great influence in the peace conference, ought
to remember this.
The willingness of the American people to
absorb all this sop about "Hermann" Goering's
great leadership ability and his jovial personal-
ity, is just one plain indication of how easily
we can be taken in. One American general
shook hands with dear "Hermann," and scores
of American newspapermen interviewed him and
wrote "personality sketches."
One columnist pointed out that the German
people yelled "Hermann, Hermann" at Nazi
party political rallies and that he couldn't ima-
gine people yelling "Adolf" when Hitler appear-
ed. The columnist shouldn't have made the
distinction. Hitler and Goering are two of a
kind. Because Goering has a jovial personality
is no reason why his record shouldn't remain
as black as he made it.
It is absolutely necessary that when we
begin building a new German nation that we
should start from scratch, trusting no German
until it is absolutely proven that he is freedom-
loving. Let the war criminals be punished by
those who suffered under them, and don't get
sentimental about the Germans who "didn't
want to go along with Hitler." There just
aren't any such Germans left alive.
-Marilyn Koebnick
Truman and Taxes
RESIDENT TRUMAN'S announcement that
corporation and income taxes must remain
as they are to protect the 85,000,000 individual
war bond holders in the United States is to be
commended because at this time, more than ever
before, stringent measures must be taken to
safeguard the country against inflation.
The President indicated that concessions will
be made in excise tax rebates and raising of
the excise tax exemption as proposed in a pro-
gram approved by Secretary of the Treasury
Henry Morgenthau, Jr., which will provide suffi-
cient relief to industries in a state of conversion
to peace-time production.
The maintenance of income taxes and cor-
poration taxes at their present level will pot
prevent industrial conversion and will curtail
trends toward inflation. It is important that
President Truman, having stated his views,
will stick to them despite any pressure from
advocates in Congress of tax reduction before
the defeat of Japan.

A New Treason
ACCORDING to yesterday's newspapers, Rep.
Rankin, (D.-Miss.), will propose a bill, "full

of dynamite, that goes far beyond our present
laws of treason," to punish any person who at-

WASHINGTON-The State Department has
one bucking-bronco ambassador on its hands
and it doesn't quite know what to do with
him. He is ebullient, energetic Patrick J. Hurley,
ex-Secretary of War, ex-major general, now
U. S. ambassador to China.
Hurley holds th No. 2 ambassadorial job in
the world. No. 1 is Moscow. Both China and
Russia these days are more important than
London, where relations are happy and serene.
But in Chungking, the United States has
been laboring to get both Chinese factions to
fight Japan instead of fighting each other.
If they don't get together, we face- another row
identical with that in Poland. The State De-
partment is worried sick that Stalin will recog-
nize the Northern Chinese Communists as he
did the Lublin government of Poland, leaving
us burdened with the Chiang Kai-Shek gov-
ernment which has dwindling support among
the Chinese people.
To sit in this tough trouble-spot, Roosevelt
sent handsome, colorful ex-Oklahoma oil man
and Choctaw Indian attorney, Pat Hurley. It
was Pat's job to try to bring the two Chinese
factions together.
On his way back to Chungking from Wash-
ington last month, Hurley stopped in Moscow
where he called on Stalin. It was' a very im-
portant interview for the purpose of keeping
Stalin in line regarding China, preventing him
from bolting the traces, renouncing Chiang
Kai-Shek and coming out 100 per cent for the
Northern Chinese. U. S. Ambassador Averell
Harriman went with Hurley to make the call.
Hurley's Platitudes
T THE KREMLIN, Hurley said something to
the effect that he hoped Stalin believed
China must not be split up; to which Stalin, of
course, agreed.
Then he asked in effect: "You are for a uni-
fied China, aren't you, Marshal?" Again Stalin,
of course, agreed.
There followed some other questions on inno-
cuous points, and the interview was over. Am-
bassador Harriman left by plane immediately
for Washington, very much annoyed that Hur-
ley had failed to take up any real issues with
Stalin. Stalin had agreed only to obvious and
general platitudes about China.
But when Harriman arrived in Washington,
he found Hurley had already cabled the State
Department that Stalin had endorsed his pro-
gram for China. Harriman promptly advised
the State Department that this was not the
However, Hurley's telegram somehow or other
found its way to the Chinese embassy in Wash-
ington, which cabled it to Chungking, where
the Chiang Kai-Shek government gleefully
spread the word that Stalin had agreed to its
program. Naturally, Chiang's program calls
for a minimum of cooperation with the Northern
Chinese-in fact less than none.
So now Chiang Kai-Shek is much less com-
promising and the problem of getting the two
factions together is right back where it was
when Gen. "Vinegar Joe" Stilwell demanded
that the Generalissimo cooperate and was
fired for his pains.
Meanwhile, Stalin may come out with full
recognition of the Northern Chinese any mi-
NOTE-The State Department is also upset
over the fact that Mrs. Hurley has accepted a
bracelet said to be worth around $30,000 from the
Chinese ambassador in Washington. Naturally,
this is interpreted in Chinese circles as putting

"MURDER, MY SWEET" is what Hollywood
fondly calls a "sleeper," meaning it's a
film made on a low budget with a minor cast
which turns out to be above-average entertain-
Its rating of above-average is justified to
some extent. It has a good script and some
commendable performances. Originality is not

the film's forte, however. It is nmurder-melo-
drama in the Humphrey Bogart manner and
suggestive of such gory predecessors as "The
Maltese Falcon" and "The Glass Key." For
those who like this sort of thing, "Murder,
My Sweet" is obviously a theatre-going oc-
It is based on a Raymond Chandler novel call-
ed "Farewell, My Lovely" (the title has been
changed for some vague reason best known to
Hollywood itself). Chandler, who writes in the
Dashiell Hammett manner, is having a Holly-
wood vogue now, and this is the first of his
works to reach the screen.
Dick Powell, attempting a character role after
many years apprenticeship in Warner musicals,
plays Philip Marlowe, a private detective who
becomes involved in a missing person case
whose complicated ramifications involve Claire
Trevor, Anne Shirley and a frightening giant
thug who is a case of brawn over brain. Powell
is successful in his characterization, although
Bogart needn't worry too much about his posi-
tion as number one tough guy. The support-
ing cast is uniformly excellent.

Secretary of Labor by Truman but went home
to talk it over with his wife. Dave Beck, Team-

Signs of Softness
WE AMERICANS are watching each other for
signs of softness in regard to Germany; we
have no great faith in each other in this one
particular field. General Stack's luncheon, with
Hermann Goering has shocked us. But this is
not a shock of surprise; it is the kind of shock
we expected. It hits us hard because it fulfills
our dreary expectations, not because it aston-
ishes them. It carries the shock of confirmation
of a bad dream.
General Eisenhower has issued an order for-
bidding such courtesies; but even this is un-
convincing. When such an order has to be
issued, the response made by our hearts is, oh,
my. We still have to write it out on a piece
of paper that it is not right to be nice to
Americans as a whole have no great faith that
Americans as a whole will punish war criminals
adequately. That is a political fact; let us face
it and analyze it. We lack faith because we
know, deep down inside, that the method we
propose to use is inadequate. That method is the
method of law, of written, pre-existing interna-
tional law; that is our way, our Anglo-Saxon
way. We are wedded to the method of law, it
does violence to our traditions to proceed on
any basis but that of law, and we find it hard
to admit that there may be extraordinary situ-
ations in which the law, as one of the techniques
of civilization, may be inadequate.
W E KNOW, dismally, that existing law does
not make fascism a crime, so we have to
try to prove that the fascists were criminals in
addition to being fascists; we have to try to
show that they parked their tanks too long beside
a fireplug while they were over-running Den-
mark; we have to try to get them for a kind
of "second crime," so to speak. We are com-
pelled either to dstort the law, or to distort
the meaning of fascist crime; that is our gloomy
It seems to me that the way out of this
conflict is merely to step out of it. Why not
take the problem out of the cramped area of
the criminal law, and move it over into the
area of military necessity, or into the area
of emergency action to preserve the public
peace and safety? For example: Suppose
General Eisenhower were to issue an order
requiring all Nazi party members with card
numbers lower than 200,000 to remain in
their homes, under house arrest, as a security
measure to protect the occupying troops?
Who could say that this would be an inap-.
propriate action, or an extreme one?
ONCE we step out of the narrow boundaries of
the criminal law, we will find that we have
great, yet legal, freedom of action. Suppose the
allies, acting together, should determine that
the presence in Germany of the top 200,000
members of the Nazi party, and of all Reichs-
wehr officers above the rank of captain, is a
threat to peace and order in the Reich, during
the reconstruction period? Who can say that

it would be illegal to order their exile to a pre-
pared place?
Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson put
it well, in his recent speech, when he said that we
must not use our courts, in Germany, to carry
out policy; courts must be courts; but that
doctrine, he said, is no bar to having a policy,
and to carrying it out, so long as we do it openly
and frankly, and state our reasons, and don't
disguise it as court procedure. We need courts
to try war criminals, and we need a policy
against fascists, too. We need both. Our di-
lemma arises when we try to make the first do
the work of the second, or when we refuse to
admit that we need the second. Then we leave
open a middle ground, in which such characters
as Jodl and Doenitz may wander.
It seems to me we are heading toward a
great debate, in which those of us who are
not terribly anti-Junker, or who are afraid
of radicalism in Germany, will insist that we
proceed by court action alone; they will argue
for courts as a means of arguing against pol-
icy; they will say that the bill of rights pre-
vents us from taking action against men
who took action against the bill of rights.
