fI( COlta WAR, it seems, has been en-
tering a new phase lately with the par-
ticipants harking and growling over defense
Latest development in this new game is
Russia's offer of a non-war pact with
Norway, who in turn has sent her for-

North Atlantic Defense Pact would be a kind
of sub-division. Russia's proposed pact with
Norway, contrariwise, is something of a
warning to her to steer clear of the West-

be, however, definitely subordinated to the

Thus both the Eastern World and the
Western world have made or planned net-
works of Pacts which will lasso the world.

President Truman okayed this plan in his
inaugural address.
Another important pact is the American
Hemisphere Pact, drafted in 1947 at Rio
de Janeiro, the basis of which was the
1945 Act of Chapultepec. The Arab League,
embracing many near Eastern nations is an-
other. The South Pacific nations (Australia
and New Zealand, possibly the Philippines)
are said to want to make one with the West-
ern powers for their area.
The Russians, of course, have made count-
less defense pacts with their satellites.
The ultimate in pactism, if there be such
a word, is the talked-of world-wide pact of
mutual defense which could be open to any-
body wanting to join, and which would cut
down the Soviet complaints.
As far as the Western world is concerned,
Russia is not the only potential aggressor.
Prance, for instance; fears a revitalized Ger-
many; Australia, a healthy Japan.
Defense pacts, though, have their faults.
As the New York Times has pointed out,
they are helpless against psychological
warfare and are impotent if the nations
signing them do not keep their word.
Instinctively, defense pacts seem to be a
warlike move, but if pacts can keep the cold
war cold, then out with all-powerful pen.

STRANGELY ENOUGH there are few real
mourners lamenting the death of the
University's Workers' Education Service.
It is strange because there was quite a
healthy out(ry when the service was first
8t1 pped. las sutnmmer. Of course a lot has
happenled ainlue th u-to explain the present
lack of t(,ars.
The Unions really howled last summer
because they had been enjoying one of the
best workers' services in the country. At-
tendance was high, and instructors, who had
worked with labor men as well as with
theoretical problems, were able to interest
their students in what are vital problems
for every working man.
Even after charges of "marxism" by a
general motors official had pushed the
university into closing the program, un-
ion officials came back to help rebuild
the service with the University. .... .. . .
But just when general agreement to pro-
ceed had been reached, the University came
out with a surprise list of courses and in-
structors which they had planned without
consulting the labor men.
Already irate over the University's meth-
ods, the union men took one look at the
pedantic respectability of the new plan and
told the University to keep it.
The result was rather unique. The Uni-
versity was giving courses which no one
attended. Thus the University's "sudden"
decision to drop the workers courses.
No one, therefore, need be very surprised
that the workers themselves aren't marching
in a funeral procession for that kind of
BUT THERE REALLY ought to be some
people in the - University who mourn
this death. Unfortunately,'the real mourn-
ers lost out long ago, when the University
first stopped the program, and they, too,
now have nothing much left to weep over.
Those who express sadness now, saying
the University really did its part with that
last excuse for a workers' program, are
merely sympathizing with a nice general
principle of spreading education to labor.
They cannot be real mourners for la-
bor's cause, because they never under-
stood it; they never tried to offer more
than a sickening compromise with un-
founded charges.
And finally, it should be obvious that
there will be nothing but cheering within
the neat offices of the motor companies.
BECAUSE THE UNIONS are gradually
building an education program of their
own to replace the University service, they
will not be the real losers.
It is the University which must really
suffer in the long run: We have seen how
readily the University bowed to the dictates
or persuasions of business interests and we
have witnessed its failure to act in good
faith with the union;.
But most seriously of all, we have seen
the University fail as an educational in-

ONE MIGHT HAVE supposed that the
collapse of China would have startled
America into a fresh examination of what
Communism is, how and why it wins, etc.
Certainly an event of this magnitude re-
quires that we approach the subject newly,
throwing away our preconceptions and our
patter, our vain underwriting of each other's
hunches, our grim adherence to remedies
that don't remedy. In a country like our
own, which prides itself on research, an ex-
amination of the whole subject, from the
beginning, as if nobody had ever looked at
it before, is long overdue.
But if there has been any such reaction
to the fall of China, I have seen no signs
of it. Instead, with incredible triteness,
we drag out the same old "answers to
Comniunismn," mostly along the line of
represiom, which China has used for
mmure than twenty years., and with such
spetacta~r lhek of success. The only reply

No matter how we try, we will never be as
good at it as a Russian czar or a Chinese
warlord. We don't have the talent, and, be-
ing Americans, we can never have an un-
complicated approach to it. About such
points it is good to be clear. For to realize
that there are certain dubious talents which
we do not have, may make us freshly re-
member better ones that we do have.
The answer to Communism is not to
1 hate the Communists but to love the
people. And one merit of this non-fero-
cious answer is that, for all its seeming
mildness, it raises theoretical questions for
Communism, which other approaches do
not always do. The man who hates the
Communists, and who also hates the
ideas of popular reform, is duck-soup for
Communism. He is the fellow the Com-
munists know; he is the character they
have expected to meet, in an historical
rendezvous; he is out oi their books; they
make their noltical livinas ot of him.
