Und~rstate ment
E LOUIS released the following state-
ment concerning Anti-Lynch Day in De-
troit, last week:
"I endorse and support the efforts of
the Southern Negro Youth Congress in its
campaign for civil rights for the South's
youth and veterans. Since the headquar-
ters of the SNYC are in Birmingham, Ala.,
the state of my birth, I have a close kin-
ship for the struggle they are waging for
the freedom of my people.
"I urge the citizens of Detroit and Amer-
ica to support this anti-lynching campaign.
Giving our dollars and dimes cannot hurt
as much as lynching hurts our brothers and
sisters in the South."
Anyone who doesn't think Louis under-
stated the case might try matching a few
victims' pain with his cash donation in tag
sales today. At what figure will he assess
four bullet-ridden bodies in Monroe, Ga.,
the mass-raping of a hundred Recy Taylor's,
or the punctured 'eyeballs of Isaac Wood-

UAN Problem
EvEN SUPPOSING that all the members
of the so-called International Brigade
that recently attacked Greek towns were
either Greek refugees or Albanians, this
brigade could have been recruited only with
official aid. Albanians are-God knows-
ready enough to attack Greeks (and vice-
versa) at any and all occasions. But when
they turn up several thousands strong with
artillery we can take it that some govern-
ment is involved. Seventy-fives do not grow
on trees-not even in the Balkans.
Thereby, the existence of an international
dispute is proved. Here is a tension which
it not promptly relieved, could degenerate
into a minor war which could spread and
become a major war.
This is exactly the kind of occasion that
the UN Security Council must deal with.
The American proposal to station a
permanent UN commission on the Greek
border is one of the mildest ways of deal-
ing with this situation. (A more vigorous
way would be for the air arm of the UN
police force-if any such existed-to bomb
any troops attempting to crack the Greek
. frontiers.)
If therefore the UN Security Council were
prevented from dealing with this situation,
the results might be very unpleasont.
On the other hand, the present UN might
be blown sky high and perhaps replaced by
a new body that the Soviet Union would
not much care for. If on the other hand
the United States, already committed to
saving Greece from outside pressures and
illegal internal overthrow, would almost
surely have to intervene directly and pro-

tect the Greek frontiers. Is Marshall Tito
hankering for another look at the Battle-
ship Missouri?
American delegate Austin hinted at this
solution when some time ago he warned.
Greece's aggressive neighbors. The time
may be near when Washington, after con-
sultation with the Greek government and

IN THE COURSE of his gloriously phony
"vacation" tour of the ranges where the
delegates pasture, Governor Thomas E.
Dewey has made considerable progress, with-
out exactly stampeding any large herds of
the desirable and useful animals he has
been hunting. He is far and away ahead
in the contest for the Republican Presiden-
tial nomination. Yet it is still worth not-
ing one or two risks he has still to run,
before he can build up his own delegate herd
to the point of undoubted victory.
First and least important, there are plen-
ty of signs on Capitol Hill today that such
Senators as Kern of Missouri, and a good
many influential Representatives, do not
enjoy having the political livestock back
home auctioned by others while they are
away in the big city. This was of course
inevitable, despite the great care that Dew-
ey's staff took to clear his visit to each
state with all its absent potentates.
A much more serious threat on the hor-
izon may be discerned in the direction of
Tokyo, where General Douglas MacAr-
thur reigns in power that would have been
envied by any Mikado in history. The
irritation of local potentates, above noted,
will naturally assist the stop-Dewey move-
men which the supporters of Senator
Robert A. Taft are now almost openly
touting. But the co-operation of Mac-
Arthur would give such a move the kind
of solidity and substance it now rather
markedly lacks. And MacArthur has been
saying some rather odd things lately, to
visitors who have eagerly reported his
words in Washington.
To one such visitor, for example, he in-
dicated considerable sympathy for the Taft
candidacy, remarking that Senator Arthur
H. Vandenberg of Michigan ought to have
backed Taft in 1940, instead of supporting
danger again. We thought for a time
that we had it by the tail. But now at
the downtown New York bars they begin
to talk of a coming bull market, and a
number oftsellers are falling over them-
selves in their rush to make "reluctant"
price increases.
We've been on an economic plateau for
some months, preparing to climb down.
But now there is a funny feeling in the air
that when the order comes to break camp
and to move, it may take the unexpected
form: "Up!"
Why has the script been changed, and
what has changed it? It seems to me
we ought to face the fact that there is a
positive will toward inflation Nt many lev-
els in our country and in our economy.
Inflation has a bad name, it is a dog and
a pariah, everybody hates it and keeps
making uncouth gestures at it, and telling
it to go away. But somebody must be feed-
ing it, too, for it to be able to make the
comebacks it does, and to keep looking
so sleek
There is the commentator who bawls that
we need a tax cut, to give business more
money with which to work, so that it can
produce more goods and squash inflation.
He may be right, but if he is, this would
be the first time in history that scattering
more money broadcast was ever a cure for
It ranks with pouring gasoline on fires
to put them out, or giving free steam
whistles away as part of a "Make This
a Quiet City" campaign.
Then there was the farm state Congress-
man I heard squirming on the radio the
other night, frying to get out from under
a question as to whether farm prices were

too high. It finally developed that he
thought wheat and corn at above $2 were
just about right, but that other prices in
our economy were much too high.
Oh, he hated inflation, he hated it to
pieces. But at the suggestion that farm
prices be cut his voice developed the kind
of quaver one usually associates with the
voice of a woman proclaiming that nobody
understands what it, is to be a mother.
One recalls, too, the recent Congression-
al grant of "voluntary" 15 percent rent
increases. This move does far more than
merely raise rents. By potentially increas-
ing the rent rolls on leased properties it
raises their values, at least on paper, and
tends further to inflate real estate selling
prices. It hits the dollar on the head with
a claw hammer.
As I said, inflation is a dog, a cur; but
how some of those Congressmen love to
pat it surreptitiously as it walks by, and
how they admire to have it lick their
And after three years of bitter complaints
that wages are outstripping prices, profits
are higher than ever, which seems hard to
explain. Somehow our producers have man-
aged to stay ahead of the game, and there
is a certain complacent attitude about re-
cent wage increases which indicates they

MacArthur as an alternative. Another ear-
lier visitor returned to the Taft camp from
Tokyo with an ostensible message to the
effect that MacArthur was for Taft, and
that although his own job was in the Far
East, he was not averse to helping Taft in
any way he could.
These reports must of course be given a
substantial discount, like all such reports in
political matters even when first hand. Yet
they have a special interest, if taken in
conjunction with the recent behavior of
the grand panjandrum of extreme Republi-
can conservatism, Colonel Robert R. Mc-
Cormick of Chicago. Colonel McCormick
and Governor Greene are the joint satraps
of Illinois. Until recently, McCormick's
newspaper beat its blatant drum for Mac-
Arthur for President, first last and always.
Meanwhile Greene gave signs of hankering
for favorite-son recognition
Now, however, a last, uncompromising
note has crept into "The Chicago Tri-
bune" editorial pages. McCormick is
now for MacArthur first and Taft sec-
ond. There is also some reason to be-
lieve that the distinguished Governor of
Illinois might be tempted to sink his
claims to recognition at the convention
by the promise of a more substantial re-
ward. The Secretaryship of National
Security is said, in fact, to seem decidedly
attractive to him.
Put these scraps of evidence together.
And it begins to seem at least conceivable
that MacArthur will return from Tokyo,
some time during the next year, for a sort
of imperial tour of the United States. The
imperial tour will be employed as the stim-
ulus for a "spontaneous" MacArthur-for-
President movement. A MacArthur delega-
tion will be formed in Illinois. Delegates
will be sought in other states where Mac-
Arthur has appeal, such as Wisconsin. And
these MacArthur delegations, by careful pre-
arrangement, will go to Taft on the second
ballot, counterbalancing Dewey's inevitable
second ballot gain.
It is t'he kind of political strategem which
has not been unheard of in the American
past, and has worked before. It needs only
MacArthur's co-operation to be tried this
time; since it is obvious that the Taft cam
would be delighted and that McCormick
actually has something of the sort in mind.
Whether MacArthur will in the end co-
operate is of course a very open question
And since the American past was very dif-
ferent from the American present, it still
remains to be seen whether this sort of
stunt can be worked successfully under
modern conditions.
The nature of the problem is reason-
ably obvious. If the stunt is tried, Mc-
Cormick will emerge as a leading Taftite.
That will place upon Senator Taft and
his followers, however little they deserve
it, and however much they desire to
avoid it, the mark of standard bearers of
the extreme Republican right wing. It
will, conversely, place upon Dewey, much
more clearly than at present while Dewey
is still so wonderfully mum, the mark of
standard bearer of the relatively progress-
ive Republicans.
At the same time, it will enormously in-
tensify the struggle that has so long been in
progress between the Mid-Western Repub-
lican organizations, which have hardly al-
tered since the time of Herbert Hoover, and
the West and East Coast Republicans, who
have been modernized by repeated defeats.
In the old days, all this would merely have
contributed to the complex pleasures of pol-
itics. But at present, since these struggles
must also affect Congressional decisions up-
on the destiny of the United States, this sort
of thing is a trifle alarming.
(Copyright, 1947, New York Herald Tribune)
THE STRONG VOICE of Secretary Mar-
shall has now been raised in a final
plea to Congress to admit "a substantial
number" of Europe's 850,000 "displaced
persons" to this country. Congressional

leaders offer only a plea in evidence - that
there, is not time before adjournment to
pass the Stratton Bill providing for the ad-
mission of 400,000 of these homeless and
stateless refugees in the next four years.
Mr. Marshall's answer is that it must be
done if our national honor is to remain un-
tarnished. Otherwise we shall stand before
the world as a nation which fails to "prac-
tice what it preaches" and draws aside while,
urging others to come to the rescue.
