Visit No Success




WASHINGTON-- Governor Dewey's two-day
visit to Washington was not exactly a howl-
ing success, but both he and GOP Chairman
Brownell left convinced they had made a step
toward one long-range Republican objective-
dissolution of the "unholy alliance" between Re-
publicans and southern Democrats. They have
long wanted to replace it with a forthright Re-
publican program of their own. Actually GOP
leaders in the Senate have always been agreeable
to breaking up the coalition. However, House
Minority Leader Joe Martin, who rules lower
chamber GOP'sters with an iron hand, has stub-
bornly opposed. He has long enjoyed licking the
administration through his hydra-headed alli-
ance with John Rankin of Mississippi, Gene Cox
of Georgia and Virginia's wing-collared,. beetle-
browed Howard Smith.
During the two-day meeting, Dewey held
several long talks with the Republican leader-
ship in both houses, strongly endorse Brown-
ell's idea that the GOP needs an independent
legislative program of its own. Even Joe Mar-
tin, who has been known to threaten recalci-
trant Republican representatives with defeat
in the next electidh if they bolt his leadership
at last seemed sympathetic.
Dewey pulled two boners during his visit,
which didn't help.
Lunching with a number of GOP Senators,
he was accompanied by two burly New York
state troopers who acted as bodyguards. After
lunch in the Senate dining room, several Sena-
tors came up to shake hands. But Dewey's body-
guards, not realizing that the Senate dining
room is open to all Senators, tried to block off
one or two unexpected Senators, including pug-
nacious" Senator Theodore Bilbo of Mississippi.
When Bilbo was prevented from walking into
the dining room to pay his respects to Dewey he
backed away and bellowed:
"See here, you. This is the Capitol of the
United States. And this is the Senate of the
United States. And this is the Senate dining
room. And I'm a United States Senator so getI
the h- out of the way."
The bodyguards retreated, didn't realize they
had been pushing Senators like Bilbo around
for close to an hour.
Dewey's Press Conference -. -
DEWEY'S other boner was with the press. In-
stead of calling a regular press conference as
is customary with all political figures, the New
York Governor got inveigled into a private din-
ner with a small group of newsmen. Not even
the Associated Press or the United Press were
included in this secret pow-wow. Naturally there
was a howl.
So to straighten things out a cocktail party
was held for some of those who were peeved.
However, even this was restricted, and only
caused Dewey more trouble. Two of those who
were left out, John Terrell of Newsweek and
Truman Felt of the St. Louis Star Times, de-
cided to drop over to the Statler where the
Dewey press conference was taking place.
At the hotel desk they were told strict orders
had been left by Dewey not to reveal where his
dinner was taking place. However, upstairs in
the Pan-American Room, Terrell and Felt man-
aged to get past a guard and found themselves
in the room with Dewey and the small group of
newsmen, all from pro-Dewey papers.
Abruptly Dewey stopped talking. There was
a moment of embarrassed silence. Dewey's face
turned crimson. Finally Felt spoke up.
"I hope we're not embarrassing anyone," he
said. "We just thought we'd drop over. We
heard the Governor is meeting with the press."
The silence continued, with the chill spread-
ing like a quick freeze over a basket of fresh-
picked fruit.
"If we're embarrassing anyone, we'll leave,"
said Felt standing up and walking toward the
At this Paul Lockwood, Dewey's secretary
whose press relations ideas have usually been
sound, hopped to his feet and began apologizing.
"This isn't our party," Lockwood said. "It
was arranged for us. We have nothing to do
with the arrangements."
Felt and Terrell said nothing, left the room.
Note-When Wendell Willkie made his first
trip to Washington after the 1940 defeat, he
invited in all newsmen, especially those from
critical papers, renewed many friendships, won
more admirers.

German Ulndergriound Seethes . .
ACCORDING to uncensored dispatches now
reaching Washington, active guerrilla war-
fare is flaring up on a mounting scale behind the
German lines.
First real indication of an active Fifth Col-

umn in Germany came recently with accurate
'reports of pitched battles inside Berlin, Bres-
lau and Bremen. This new guerrilla warfare
differs from that of partisan units inside
France, Yugoslavia and Greece in that few of
the guerrilla troops are Germans. The bulk
are Frenchmen and Russians who were cap-
tured earlier in the war and have been used
as slave labor.
All of these workers were carefully guarded
by -Himmler until recently. Most lived in big
cities and worked in large industrial plants. In
Berlin for example, hundreds of thousands of
slave laborers have been housed in fenced off
temporary barracks in the heart of the city.
But recent powerful Allied air raids have
created such chaos that thousands of foreign
workers escaped from their enclosures and have
hidden in the bomb ruins.
At night, the guerrillas prowl the streets,
capture Nazi sentries, steal food and ammuni-
tion, commit extensive sabotage. They have
been joined by some German Arny deserters,
afraid to return to the front.
Once Berlin is taken it is expected that the
several million slave laborers will flare into such
revolt that Germany-except in the mountain-
ous south-will cave like an eggshell.
War Notes .
F.D.R. still hasn't decided who he will name as
High Commissioner of the Philippines. WMC
Director Paul McNutt and Supreme Court Jus-
tice Frank Murphy both are ready to go. If
Murphy takes it, Roosevelt will nominate Judge
Sam Rosenman to the Supreme Court.. . Liberal
French Catholic writer Jacques Maritain is
scheduled to be the new French Ambassador to
the Vatican . . . Germans are already trying to
escape from the threatened Nazi homeland. Re-
ports from Lisbon, Madrid, Stockholm and Berne
reveal hundreds of Germans trying to crash the
frontier to get out of Germany before the Allies
take over ...
The Nazis are so panicky that they are even
trying to persuade the French and English
people that Hitler and Stalin have concluded
a secret armistice. Berlin radio made a special
broadcast this week end saying: "At this mo-
ment Mr. Hitler and Mr. Stalin have concluded
an armistice." What the Nazis want, of course,
is distrust among the United Nations, and a
negotiated peace. . . A significant new Slav
treaty is now being negotiated. It will bind
together the Czechoslovak government and the
Lublin-Polish government in the first step to-
ward the creation of an eastern European
Slavic alliance-naturally with Moscow's bless-

Georgia Free State
THERE is something inspiring in Georgia's ab-
olition of the poll tax. This action by a State
which ten years ago was sneeringly referred to
as a bog of bigotry-action, we emphasize, which
the Georgians took on their own initiative and
not as the result of outside pressure and cam-
paigning-shows again that self-help and self-
determination are the greatest assets man indi-
vidually or collectively can have.
The germ was a sense of outrage on the part
of the Georgia League of Women Voters at
the harm the poll tax system did to the Empire
State of the South. The League began talking
about it in 1936, and would not stop talking.
Finally, the newspapers took it up, not only
the metropolitan dailies, but the county seat
weeklies, and the Georgia State Press Associa-
tion made it a plank in its reform platform.
The politicians were slow, and the agitations
for a federal ban on poll taxes made them slower.
states' rights being part of the bag of tricks of
most Southern politicians. But the wind of re-
form finally began to move them, too. Finally,
when Ellis Arnall became Governor, things real-
ly began to happen. A straight thinker and a
hard fighter, he does not acknowledge defeat.
The obstacles in the poll tax fight made him hit
all the harder. Both Senators in Washington
indorsed State repeal, both branches of the Leg-
islature finally passed a measure that means
what it says.
"Today Georgia spoke for democracy," the
Governor said as he signed the bill. Today it
is Georgia Free State. Let the seven other
poll tax states take notice that the last has
made itself first.
- St. Louis Post-Dispatch
MICHIGAN students had a rare opportunity
last week to meet one of the great person-
alities of this war, Capt. Peter Freuchen, Danish
national hero. Capt. Freuchen, who first made
his mark as an explorer of Greenland for his
homeland, has taken on new stature since the
war's outbreak as one of the great leaders of the
Danish underground.
One of the significant things Capt. Freuchen
had to say during his two-day visit here was the
value of the underground press in Denmark,
There the underground newspapers represent
the only free press.
Reading only official organs, the Nazis know
only what they are told-of glorious German
victories. But the Danes have disillusioned the
supermen. "We tell the truth," he explained.
