Up to this time the United States has
made a pretty sad showing as far as pro-

richest country, the country least affected

The bills now before Congress are the
result of over two years of haggling, discus-

The more liberal Fellows bill is now
pending before the House. It would per-
mit the entry in the next two years of
200,000 displaced persons from Italy and
the occupation zones of Germany and
Austria and extend entry to 15,000 refu-
gees now in the United States. Priority
would be given to farm labor, physicians,
dentists or nurses; household construc-
tion or garment workers, or those with
educational of technological training.
According to reports from Washington it
is probable that the Senate will pass some
bill on DP's this-session but the outlook in
the House is not so sure. Even if both bills
should pass their respective houses they will
have to go to conference committee for
ironing out the differences between them.
In the meantime the day of adjournment

eager to be off to the party conventions
there is danger that no final decision will
be made and the measure will die of in-

Oregon ioon()tes

FOR HAROLD STASSEN the question has
now become whether the Republican
nomination can be secured, not for himself,
but for Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg or
some other Republican who is not a bitter
Stassen enemy. For Governor Thomas E.
Dewey, the question now is whether his re-
started bandwagon can gain enough mo-
mentum to break through a Philadelphia
deadlock and carry him to nomination.
Oregon, following hard upon Ohio, has
in fact neatly reversed the allocation of
roles in the Republican political drama
which seemed to have been made in Wis-
consin and Nebraska. For a few weeks,
Dewey and Senator Robert A. Taft were
gathering their strength to stop Stassen.
Now it is Stassen who must, and unques-
tionably will, prepare to use all his resources
in order to stop Dewey.
By dramatically reversing a sharply
unfavorable situation, Dewey has scored
an undoubted personal success of the first
order. The effects of Wisconsin and Ne-
braska are now virtually wiped out. Dew-
ey's political managers can assert that
Dewey failed in Wisconsin and Nebraska
because he was too busy for an intensive
personal campaign comparable to Stas-
For Stassen to try to promote the choice
of Vandenberg and himself hope for second
place on the ticket will be merely to revert
to the tactics he had in mind before Wis-
consin sent his hopes soaring. But there are
other more complex factors to consider.
There are several points here to consider.
First, Dewey wants above all to be Presi-
dent, is still a young man, but cannot again
make a bid for the White House from the
New York governor mansion. Second, at
least one faction of the draft-Vandenberg
planner began thinking weeks ago of offer-
ing Dewey the vice-presidential spot, with

the special task, for which he is well-fitted,
of carrying out the reorganization of the
Federal government on the basis of the re-
commendations of President Hoover's spe-
cial commission. This would make the Vice-
Presidency an extremely active job, rather
than a mere empty honor.
Third, Vandenberg himself has let it be
known he would serve only one term,
which would open the way for Dewey
again in 1952. And fourth, there were in-
dications a few days ago that in the
event of defeat in Oregon, Dewey himself
was thinking favorably of second place
on a Vandenberg ticket. Victory in Ore-
gon may cause Dewey to forget the ad-
vantages he had begun to teach himself
to see in such an arrangement.
Stassen's slugging fight for the nomina-
tion has made him the object of much
personal enmity. Senator Vandenberg, if
drafted, would want the maximum of party
unity and is thus quite likely to prefer
Dewey as a running mate. Any wager on
the Philadelphia outcome is a long shot,
but long shot gamblers might do worse than
a parlay on a Vandenberg-Dewey ticket.
Only one other thing remains to be said
about the Oregon primary. The issue in the
campaign, as publicly proclaimed by both
Dewey and Stassen, was Stassen's proposal
to suppress the Communist Party. Stassen
was defeated on that issue. The fact that
this proposal was thus rejected does credit
to the political decency, and above all the
common sense of the voters. It should also
be taken as a warning by the kind of Re-
publicans and reactionary Democrats who
think there is political capital to be made
by wallowing in cheap appeals to prejudice
and vulgar political sensationalism. Being

WHENEVER WE HAVE a Congress and a
. President of different parties, solid leg-
islation has a tough time squeaking through
into law.
When you add the effects of election year,
a propaganda scare campaign against Rus-
sia, an inept and disliked president and a
good dose of resentful congressmen (each
working for a favorite cause), the American
people aren't going to get much in the way
of good legislation.
So it is not surprising that most of the
proposals considered "must" at the begin-
ning of the year are stlil hanging around
in committee, or in the hopper, without
any prospects of becoming law.
Some of these are:
1. Federal aid to education.
2. Broader social security coverage.
3. National medical insurance-establish-
ment of a National Department of Health,
Education and Security.
4. Long range housing.
5. Further TVA plans, principally a Mis-
souri Valley authority.
6. Admission of displaced persons.
7. Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act.aOnly
committee report out now calls for a bill
without any teeth.
8. Civil rights legislation.
Some of these proposals may pass in
diluted form; most will be forgotten for this
year anyway, and perhaps for a long time,
depending on the outlook of new legislators.
L 4 j
THE SAD THING about this list is that
all of these proposals mark needed re-
forms in our society. In a year when Amer-
ican leaders are pointing up the values of
our system in contrast to Russia's, it would
seem wise to make sure that the system will
continue to work.
Perhaps our leaders feel that passing any
reform would be an admission that the
American system is not perfect. Some may
honestly fail to see the necessity for such
But if our social system is to prove it-
self flexible enough for survival, all of
these proposals must be passed. Right
now, they should at least be receiving
long and serious consideration.
Our congressmen, seemingly have found a
different panacea: arm to the teeth and
root out all the radical elements-sure cure
for all ills.
For those of us who disagree with this
viewpoint, there is only the hope of a better
congress next year, a new president, and
the more clear headed approach possible in
non-election years.

HIGH WALL, with Robert Taylor, Audrey
Totter and Herbert Marshall.
TAKE ONE GOOD sized lump of psychi-
atry, stir up with the prescribed amount
of sodium pantathol, season with a couple
of murders, serve in a county booby hatch,
and you have the recipe for High Wall. Tay-
lor is the war hero who has gone back to
flying in order to make himself a stake,
and upon his return he catches his wife
cheating on him.
At the crucial moment an old brain mu
jury kicks up, and he awakens to find him-
self a killer. Into the loony coop he goes,
up to his neck in hot water. From there
it's a real race to see who does what and

with which and to whom. Taylor wins, but
not without 60 minutes of effort. There is
some fine character acting by H. B. Warner,
Marshall is his usual flawless self, and Tay-
lor is quite convincing. The color cartoon
is almost old enough to vote.

It begins with a murder, the rest of the
action then showing the tedious process of
locating and gathering evidence and sus-
pects. Towards the end of the picture, the
string of suspicious people had become so
long that I got confused, but that's no sign
that you will.
An outstanding quality of this story is
that it discards the Dick Tracy antics so
common to Hollywood detectives, and in-
stead dwells on the drudgery and inglorious
jobs that a policeman must perform before
making the final capture. Don Taylor is ex-
cellent in this respect.
Old Fitzgerald gets starring position, but

the good supporting cast.

Old Scandal Again

IFIE BRITISH are returning to an old
scandal. They are reenacting the decline
of the League of Nations, with themselves
cast again in a leading role. It is incredible,
after all the warnings the British people
have given each other that it must not hap-
pen again, after all the times they have
beat their heads against the wall for hav-
ing let it happen in the Thirties, after all
the books they have written and read on
the subject, that they could be doing it
once more, but they are.
They have drawn a thousand morals from
the time when they let Ethiopia fall, when
they let Spain fall, when they let Germany
rearm, when they let Mussolini grow strong,
and they do not remember one of them.
The British seem to be doing their best
to revive the almost forgotten but very
bad reputation they had before the war
in the field .of collective action for secur-
ity. That record was wiped out by a mag-
nificent war effort, but it is being restored
by a dismal diplomacy in the Security
Council. In the dreadful, petty legalisms
the British are using today to justify their
material and moral aid to the Arab law-
breakers, one catches again a breath of
the air of the Thirties.
Perhaps, the British people are prepared
to have the United Nations collapse, to have
the world slip into war again, to fight
bravely again, and then to write a whole
new set of very intelligent books again on,
oh, the pity of it, and what a shame it was
to make th a h m a nlri mistakPC arrahn n+

source, and that there is a library of litera-
ture, English-written, to prove it?
... .How many times can a mistake be re-.
peated before the world comes to fear
that it is not a mere succession of errors
which is involved, but a basically incorrect
approach to the problem of aggression,
persisted in time after time until the day
of ruin comes along to halt the game?
One remembers how Spain fell when one
hears the British explain that they will not
recognize Israel because there is no way of
telling how long the new state will endure.
It might endure longer if it obtained British
recognition. The British excuse is like re-
fusing to feed a hungry man on the ground
that the miserable creature is starving to
One remembers how Japan was allowed
its own way in Manchuria, when one hears
the British say they will continue subsidies
of arms and money to Transjordan until
the Security Council rules Transjordan an
aggressor-and then sees them working
hard to minimize Security Council action,
to keep it below the level of explicitly nam-
ing the aggressor.
The world remembers the last time, and
behind the little legalistic speeches there
rises something like the terror of a scream.
