Political Observer Says:
Federation Of European States
Won't Solve Post-War Problems

- -


Dr. George Kiss, University in-
structor in political geography, be-
lieves that the much heralded United
States of Europe will not provide a
practical solution to the post-war
problems of the Continent.
"You can't build a pyramid from
the summit and there is now no pos-
itive basis for a European federation
of the American type. On the other
hand, there are innumerable linguis-
tic, economic, and cultural differ-
ences among the- forty-odd states
which existed in Europe before the
war which would work strongly
against a continental union," he
Asked what sort of a future he en-
visioned for post-war Europe, Hun-
garian-born Dr. Kiss, whose ten
years as an observer of international
relations includes wide experience as
a lecturer and writer in both Europe
and America, answered, "An en-
hausted continent might be reorgan-
ized on the basis of regional feder-
These federations, he pointed out,
would have to be based on cultural
and linguistic similarities of the
peoples concerned, but above all, they
would need a sound economic foun-
"The idea of self-sufficiency must
be absolutely discarded if we are not
to return to the 'peace' settlements
of 1919," Dr. Kiss said. "These areas
should be organized to complement
each other economically. , Scandin-
avia, the Baltic area, the Danube val-
ley, and several sections of Western
Europe are all natural geographic
and economic units which could be
organized according to such a plan."
Asked what the position of Ger-
many would be in post-war Europe,
Dr. Kiss answered, "No one can pre-
dict that, but it seems improbable
that the political unit which the
Reich has become can be success-
fully broken up. However, it is cer-
tain that the great powers will need
to give any plan of federation posi-
tive support by democracy and force
of arms, and this might entail occu-
pation of parts of Europe until suc-
cess is assured."
As for military considerations, they

must form an integral part of any
scheme for continental reorganiza-
tion, according to Dr. Kiss. A bloc
of 110 million people from the East-
ern Mediterranean to the Baltic
might be strong enough to resist
agression from either the east or
west, he believes, but future concepts
of the balance of power cannnot be
based on manpower alone. The stra-
tegic distribution of raw materials
and manufacturing establishments
are among the most important in-
gredients of modern military policy.

For Fighting Men

er scraps from the University Book-
binding Department by Mrs. Chris-
tine Wenger, a jacket sent to Lt.
Margaret K. Schafer, head nurse of
Michigan's own Base Hospital Unit
298, represented the 551th garment
made by the Ann Arbor Windbreaker
Organized in March, 1941, by Mrs.
Charles E. Koella, the local Wind-
breaker society holds the record of
having produced one-third of all
these war duty jackets. A letter re-
cently received from the distributor,
Darthmouth House, London, claimed
the excitement of the American sol-
diers wearing the Ann Arbor jackets
"was immense and they carried them
away with war whoops and great de-
light." A similar laudatory note ar-
rived this week for jackets received
by Lt.-Col. Walter G. Maddock, of
Base Hospital 298.
All interested in sewing for the
Windbreaker group are invited to
open-house at Mrs. Koella's, from
2:30 to 5 p.m. each Wednesday. Mem-
bers receive nine-pound sacks of
leather scrap donated by automobile
manufacturing companies from up-
holstery leftovers and linings for
three jackets. It is the desire of the
group to have as many of the gar-
ments as possible ready for winter
military operations.

War Effort
is Discussed
By Ehrmann
Reviewing the participation of the
United States in the war effort so
far, Prof. Howard M. Ehrmann said
yesterday, in the fourth of a series
of lecturesion the progress of the
war, that, its great work had been
mainly that of production and dis-
"On the strictly military side, it is
apparent that so far we are in the
war on a large scale only in the mat-
ter of aerial warfare," he said. "Our
military assistance has yet to be
Prof. Ehrmann found latest re-
ports from the Russian front in the
last few days rather more encourag-
ing than a week ago, in that the Ger-
man drive seems stalled in the south-
ern sector and the Russians have
retained the city of Voronezh, 10
miles east of the Don River, and even
driven the Nazis back across the river
at one point.
"So long as they continue to hold
this point," he said, "they threaten
the Germans with the launching of a
considerably counter-offensive, forc-
ing across the Don to the rear of the
German position."

To Marx Society

Detroit Worker's School, will be the

Society meets at 8 p.m. today in

tions as : What is Socialism?, How

the Dictatorship of the Proletariat?
Mr. White who is the son of a
former governor of Ohio and was a
professor at Brooklyn College will
open the meeting to discussion after
his speech to answer the students'
