FDR Studies War, Diplomacy





WASHINGTON, Jan. 20-As Franklin D.
Roosevelt begins his 4th term as President
of the United States, two great problems to the
exclusion of almost all others are on his mind:
1. Winning the war as quickly as possible, and
2. Winning the peace after the war.
Many of those close to the President say his
concentration on these problems is so intense
that when they are settled he would like to-
step out and retire to the peace and quiet
of Hyde Park.
Roosevelt's absorption with things military
and diplomatic, his veering away from things
domestic is the most important basic change in
the twelve long years since 1933.
In the days before the war he met with scores
of politicians, economists, business leaders. Eve-
nings after dinner in the early years his brain
trust would bat out ideas galore on the economic
state of the nation-bat them into the air,
discuss them, reject many, accept a few. Those
were ;the relatively carefree days of "picking
the rabbit out of the hat," having a new trick
for the economic ills of the nation.
4t that time also, Roosevelt got around
amongt his fellowmen, despite his physical
hanidicaps, more than any other President in
history-even more than William Howard
Taft. His travel record formed a restless
zig-zag graph across the map of the U. S. A.
When .he wasn't traveling, Mrs. Roosevelt
was, and her reports caie in almost daily
by private White House wire or telephone.
Today the old Roosevelt brain trust is gone,
and the new brain trust which surrounds him
is composed of admirals and generals. His
concentration at night is not upon economic
ideas tossed up by the Columbia professors, but
on. the ii'ap of the Pacific and the map of Eu-
rope, where blue, red, green and yellow tabs
indicate the number of divisions Stalin has
thrown into the battle of Poland, the amount
of armor Von Rundstedt has in reserve in the
west, the exact whereabouts of the battleships,
cruisers, airplane carriers and destroyers guard-
ing the islands of the Philippines.
*ore than any other one man, Roosevelt
helped to build up that armada, and he
watches every barnacled bottom-knows when
it was last scraped, the calibre of its guns,
how many hits it took in the last engagement
-almost as if each were one of his children.
The President's Health
IT IS NO SECRET that the President's health
has suffered somewhat from the wear and
tear of the most relentless, ravaging job in the
world. Many others have broken completely
under the strain, and the lines on Roosevelt's
face show he has not come out unscarred. Yet
the rumors about his health have been grossly
The chief facts are that after his illness last
spring, his doctors advised him to cut down
his weight, and he has lost about twenty pounds.
This shows in his face, already lined with the
worry of watching an ever-mounting casualty
list and a war which has dragged on and on.
Also the President has lost most of his teeth
in his lower jaw and has a new set which is not
too comfortable. During important and most
embarrassing moments, such as in the middle
of a speech, the new teeth sometimes click.
Finaly, the President has become more
,rd-boiled about being seen in public in a
wheel chair. During the early years in office
lhe was super-sensitive on this point. He
didn't like to have people realize le couldn't
walk. But now he knows that during twelve
years in the White House everyone is quite
aware of this fact, so he frequently rebels
against weaiing his stiff and uncomfortable
iron and leather braces, without which it is
impossible for him to stand.
Not only has the President become relatively
callous about his physical condition, but he is
not averse to telling a story on himself, the
frankest of which is regarding the Philadel-
phia Convention which nominated him in 1936.
The President was walking up to the platform
when the bolt came out of the brace on his
left knee and he started to fall, in fact would
have fallen to the platform; but secret service
men hcld him up and stood around him so
that few people could see what was happening.

The bolt was replaced, and the President con-
tinued, but, he said, very much shaken. up. In
addition to this, Jimmy Roosevelt had dropped
his speech and the pages had scattered all over
the platform.
Loneswme Presidlent -**
Franklin D. Roosevelt has never lost the old
sparkle and verve which have characterized his
private and public conversations for twelve long
years. Sometimes in press conferences, he is
irritable, but he always snaps back. He has his
ups and downs.
After the day's work is done, however, after
dinner in the White House, after the last inti-
mate callers who sometimes come as late as 11
p. m. have departed,. then, in the Lincoln study
you will sometimes catch a rare glimpse of
Franklin Roosevelt as he really is in these war
One evening a friend came over to the resi-
dence part of the White House to confer with
the President on a troublesome strike problem.
He walked along the thick carpeted corridor
outside the Lincoln study. The President did

not hear him. As the adviser came to the door,
which was open, he glanced inside.
The room was dark except for one lamp
on the President's desk which illuminated
his face almost as if in a stage setting. The
President sat there, gazing off into space.
He was not reading, he was not smoking, he
was thinking. And on his face was a look
of almost tragic loneliness. A man surround-
ed by people, problems, and war, and com-
pletely alone.

THIS ADAPTATION of Hans Christian And-
erson's story was received amidst childish
gurgles and much kiddies's delight yesterday
afternoon in the Lydia Mendelssohn and even
your aged reviewer snickered here and there.
Mavis Kennedy played the theater's version
of Barnaby, doing right well as Peter who, if ho
does not commune with pixies, at least enjoys
the company of his toys-suddenly become ani-
mate. I must say the lad struck me as being
somewhat bratish but everything was so cute
and fanciful, maybe the youth of Ann Arbor
will not be corrupted by his example.
Raggedy Ann flopped and flipped and
drooped and swayed until one almost sup-
posed Betty Godwin, in that role, to be a real
doll newly come into spindly existence. The
dance she performed with two sleepy bears
-Misses Siegan and Meisels-in the last
scene was a high point of nlayful gaiety of a
sort that enlivened the whole production.
Particularly charming, adeptly gesticulatory,
and generously pulchritudinous was Jeanne Par-
sons, Peter's Lovely Lysa. Her own choreo-
grapher, Miss Parsons, dances with obvious
grace and dexterity. It is over her that Garoo
and Pidgeon Toes duel, the latter for Monty
Mac who soon arrives on the scene himself to
win his loved one. As Pidgeon Toes parried
and Garoo thrust, two little fellows behind me
shuddered and pressed themselves closer to
their mother. But, a sigh of relief ensued
when Garoo, that villain, was subdued. Some
crying, not a little applause and other such
demonstrations followed. Now I understand
Aristotle's theory of catharsis.
-Bernard Rosenberg
(NE OF THE most knotty questions which
! will confront the peace-makers is the recrea-
tion of Poland, and as the Red Army surges
closer to the German frontier, the problematic
question clammers for a conclusive and realis-
tic answer. It seems that in considerations
of both history and the principles we are fight-
ing for as expressed in the Atlantic Charter,
the recreation of a Free Polish State would be
most imprudent.
Poland has never shown any "self determi-
nation" towards democracy, and its rulers
have shown little inclination toward the best
interests of the Nation. Even when Poland
strained and sweated under the Nazi yoke,
the Polish Government in Exile continued
the ruthless supression of its minorities.
In one instance, Polish Jews deserted the
Free Polish Forces because of arbitrary dis-
crimination and militant anti-semitism by their
Polish officers, and tried to join the armed for-
ces of other countries opposing Hitler, So grave
became the situation, that the British Govern--

mnent had to intervene.
Granted that Poland fought in the ranks of
the United Nations and that her soil soaked up
almost more blood than the rest of Europe com-
bined, but our memories are short if we forget
that it was merely a matter of expediency and
that her chief war aim is revenge. Clearly, her
motive is not representative of the spirit of in-
ternational cooperation to which most of the
United Nations sincerely subscribe.
It is a matter of record that Poland's histo-
ry is naturally bent toward Fascism, and has
proven herself politically ignorant in the past
as well as the present. Before the first Parti-
tion of Poland in the Eighteenth Century,
the country was culturally stagnant, econom-
ically famished, morally depraved, and politic-
ally impotent. In recent times, when Neville
Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler partitioned
Czechoslovakia, Poland, along with the other
totalitarian vultures did not hesitate to de-
vour a slice, seizing part of Czech Galicia.
And on the eve of her fall to Germany, Pol-
and was thoroughly devoid of democratic in-
