As general secretary of that party, he is in practice its leader, and since it i.s the ony legal party in Russia, he is the political leader of 175,000,000 people in 11 federated regions including one-seventh of the lant area of the world, stretching Pacific to the Gulf of Finland •om the Artie to thc Blanck Sea.

To show the vast power of this man as leader of vast hordes of people and controller of moutais of resources, it is ow plain that Hitler dared not move to thc conquest of Poland until assured of Russia's "neutrality," and that he dared not pro- te.st Russia's seizure of a share of thc spoils. In the Far East, his controlling power in affairs will .soon be apparent if Japan moves toward quick completion of the conquest of China, hi.s neutrality there having been won, possibly for a price.
