Axis Peace Feelers
SINCE indications of the crack-up in Germany
are slowly appearing, the Axis nations are
now more than ever losing faith in the world
power of Germany 'and are set to woo the
winning side. While Romania has not yet
been heard from to a great extent, Bulgaria
and Finland have been sending out peace feel-
ers recently.
Reports this week have Bulgaria alreadiy su-
ing for peace at the doorstep of the Allies al-
though Berlin was quick to deny the story.
The possibility of Balkan invasions would give
that country the .status of an enemy, an invaded
and war-torn land, and that combination is
hard to take.
In World War I, Bulgaria was the first of the
Central Powers to surrender. Her collapse on
Sept. 30, 1918 opened the way to the capitula-
tion of Germany. Once again Bulgaria is a
German ally and again is the weak point of the
Axis. While their surrender may' not mean,
the Nazis will give up in exactly two week's
time again, it does forecast the end.
Bulgaria was obviously sick of her bargain
with Hitler more than a year ago and has been
longing for a way out of it. Churchill in his
address last month summed up her plight
when he said that the Bulgars would accept
peace terms with gratitude, had not there
been a pistol at the nape of their neck. But
they may find it easier to get out now.
Mannerheim, the new head of the Finnish
government, may soon open negotiations with
Russia, as Moscow is reported receptive to fu-
ture offers. However militaristic and anti-com-
munistic he may be, he is likely to consider the
war lost. If he could get from out of Hitler's
dominance, it would. not be surprising to see
Mannerheim or his envoys in Moscow.
If these countries see their way toward sur-
rendering, the time is now for them, not at the
final collapse of all Europe. -Dorothy Potts

Siamese Twins
Nazi Un-derground Planned.,

WASHINGTON, Aug. 12-Diplomatic observ-
ers in London and Washington think they know
why Hitler is fighting on, despite the fact that
his armies are licked on every front.
Underground reports are that Hitler is now
laying plans through the Gestapo and the SchZ
tzstaffel for a German movement to continue
opposing the Allies subrosa after any armistice;
also to provide the groundwork for the rebirth
of a "greater Germany" after the war.
Another thing to remember is that Germany
now has more than a quarter of a million hunted
men inside its borders-men who the Allies know
are responsible for incredible atrocities, men
who are on the Allies' death list for punishment.
Throughout the war, the Russians, British, and
all the Allied governments-in-exile have been
compiling careful lists of Germans guilty of
atrocities. These lists have been compiled from
testimony of escaped refugees and of victims
in reoccupied territory.
As a result, these quarter of a million Ger-
mans know they must fight or die. So the
Gestapo is busy planting caches of light arms,
sub-machine guns, pistols and ammunition all
over Germany, buried underground where they
will be available for the hunted Nazi criminals.
NOTE-It is also reported inside the diplo-
matic corps that the Nazis have prepared print-
ing presses in these hide-outs to forge creden-
tials and documents so that escaped Nazis cart
take new names to avoid capture.
Ants and Fascists....
New York fascist Joseph McWilliams, now
on trial for sedition, was reading in the Library
of Congress the other day. When he left, a
clerk examined the books which McWilliams
had been studying. They were:
"Division of Labor Among Ants," by Edith
M. Buckingham.x
"The Social World of the Ants," by Aug-
uste Forel.
"Das Leben der Ameisen," by R. Brun.
"Studies on Ants and their Relation to
Aphids," by Charles Jones.
"Ants," by Bertelli Luigi.
"Darwin and After Darwin," by G. J. Ro-
NOTE-Why McWilliams was interested in
ants is his secret. The Department of Justice,
however, charges those on trial for sedition with
organizing cells and boring from within.

Dewey Supporter...
Governor Dewey garnered nationwide kudos
by abruptly overriding his Vice Presidential run-
ning mate and jumping on Gerald L. K. Smith.
Here's another embarrassing supporter, which
Dewey undoubtedly doesn't know about-name-
ly, the National Gentile League.
The Gentile League is headed by Donald Shea,
whom Lieut. Gen. Hugh Drulm has barred from
any area within the 100 miles of the Eastern
Just after Dewey's nomination, Shea wrote the
following letter to friends:
"Well, the Jews attempted to push Bricker
out of the picture and failed. But it required
fights in the hotel lobbies here to keep him in
the set-up and this guy (meaning himself)
was in there pitching hot balls for Bricker. A
toe-hold was better than no hold at all. But
watch Dewey's smoke when he gets in. Oh boy,
a Federal special will be loaded with crooks
for prison. Roosie (Roosevelt) is all washed up
and that's for sure. According to last dispatch
from Lieut. Gen. Drum, I am not allowed within
100 miles of Eastern Seaboard. But soon we
shall see. The Buncocrats' Convention is a farce
that's to start soon. Happy days will soon be

Veteran's Thanks ...
AS CHAIRMAN of the Veterans Organization
of the University of Michigan I have been
asked by our group to express our heart-felt
thanks to the service men on this campus for
the special veterans' dance at the USO.
It is very encouraging to find that service
men have made this magnanimous gesture of
good will. It is the first time within my
knowledge that a group of service men have
dedicated one of their social functions to the
returned veterans of this war. We certainly
appreciate their kindness and good spirit.
We only hope that through our organization
we shall be able to make their lot easier and

OUR INTEREST in the French and
their confusion plunges us into
deep questions about life itself. How
does man get himself into such con-
trary currents of human experience?
The religious implications are signi-
ficant. "Religion is the vision of
something which stands beyond, be-
hind and within the passing flux' of
immediate things." (Whitehead).
Many grant this academically who
will not struggle to make that vision
actual. That something which stands
there is God, but God is actualized,
made a fact for me, only when I be-
have as though I were an atom in
His entirety.
In other words, a man becomes a
part. of this "something standing be-
hind or living within" only by
prayer and practice. (1) In the
dominating wish to have it so and to
be a part of this Something the man
in part partakes. He identifies him-
self emotionally with God. (2) In
practice he extends that wish and
emotional appreciation into the so-
cial fabric. Thus his behavior ceases
to be entirely his own and becomes
a part' of God's behavior. Theology
talks about living out the intention
of God.
It is the high office of the home
to teach this significant truth. It
is in marriage that man and woman
most perfectly learn mutual support,
arrive at complete understanding
and become aware of the responsibi-
lities which emerge. The self-giv-
ing of marriage, when. understood
religiously, dramatizes on the human
level the God-man relation. The hu-
man life may be thought of as hori-
zontal while the religious plane is
perpendicular. Children complete the
dramatization. Two parents, in aim,
in planning, and in performance for
the child in some measure introduce
the ethical reach of society. But in
a way the family is a poor example
of the God-man relation and of the
man-to-man society, just because the
man-woman element is present. The
love item while vital to the "In
Group" and necessary to the race,
cannot serve in the wider commun-
ity. Religion is a universalizing of
the man-to-man relation quite be-
yond such a context. The stern de-
mands of social justice for the
stranger, of fair dealing even for the
criminal, and the very idea bound
up in human rights must become
religious. This is the meaning of
religion, - actually to "go through
again in thought". When one can
see, and feel, the relation between
the final act and the initial cause he
is religious.
It is the work of an education
which is religious to so sensitize man-
kind that at every stage of progress
each will be sympathetic to the needs
of all, and the all (that is the fam-
ily, the neighborhood, the state, te
international organization) will ap-
ply its highest wisdom and expend
its power for the most insignificant,
as well as for the most worthy citi-
zen. Such a view is Religion's vision
and peace.

SENATE PASSAGE of the George "state's
rights" reconversion bill hits hope for post-
war security and rapid reconversion right be-
tween the eyes.
The George bill leaves the fixing of unem-
vloyment compensation rates to the states.
Median state rates provide $15 a week maxi-
mum compensation, while the alternative
Kilgore-Murray bill, turned down by the
same coalition of Republicans and Southern
Democrats who passed the George bill and
last spring spiked the federal soldier vote bill,
provided originally for $35 a week maximum
unemployment benefits.
Few people will deny that after the war, we
need extensive plans for unemployment compen-
sation, although it is to be hoped that the
number of unemployed will not be so large as
to require a broad compensation, program.
While the sweeping provisions of the Mur-
ray-Kilgore bill undoubtedly terrified the
