S. l,i\.-s IMlman contended thai ihe piop^.-.e,) Should U.S. Repeal Embargo on Arms? "Yes", Thomas; "No", Nye Helps Neutrality Says Ono; Road to War Savs Other? " H.v KI.BERT 1). THOMAS V. S. Senator rom Utah Written Exclusively for NEA Service The President lu.s called a special Mission of Congress, but he has not l«ld the j)ublic yet exactly what lie has called it for. It is assumed that, he will have recommendations for modification of the present .so-called neutrality ac,t. Until we see those recommendations, if they are coming, no one can speak definitely about them. In the first place, since (here is a major war in Europe, we have noted (hat (he declaration of America's neutrality came not as a result of the Neutrality Act of 1937 but as a result of !!]<• law of nations and the law of war. There are domestic statulcs and American custom beginning with Wash melon's first proclamation of neutrality. After the President, had issued a proclamation, of neutrality, then it was necessary for him to invoke the embargo provisions of the Neutrality Act of 1337. This was done in a second proclamation. Some persons have asked why it was that the President had to' invoke the neutrality act in the face of Ihe European situation when he did not invoke it in the face of the Asiatic situation. One can give this simple answer. Aswfic Conflict Presents Problem The President did proclaim our neutrality in ,|,c European situation. He did not in the Asiatic one. It would e throroughly inconsiston for the I resident not to find that war exisls ill the world after he bad proclaimed the United States neutral in (he war 1 tell Ihi.s smiplc story lo lay a back firound for what I thin« is" a constructive approach. The act <if 1937 commences with the wnrs "Whenever the President shall tmd that there exists- a war. A con- stuclive embargo law, instead of starting there, might Mart: "Whenever the I resident shall have proclaimed Ihe neutrality of the United .Slates-" he shall or may do certain things. bus it would not. be war that, would brmc; the invocation of an embargo but it woidd be our declaration of neu trality. That places the embargo act where it should be in relation to a clomestjc situation and it leaves the question about whether we arc to be neutral or not solved. There would no longer be, as there is now a.s the result of Ihe two proclamations, any dsubt thai the primary objective of the American nation would be to remain neutral, and by remaining neutral I mean to keep out of active participation in war Ihi.s makes it possible !,„• America to be allowed all freedom of action as long a.s she remains within the realm of international law and leva- es her actions in regard to domestic- law definitely in Ihe domestic field Would Prohibit 1'Vnvlpi Ixians Within the present neutrality act the following things .should he preserved: 1. The Munitions Control Board should ri'Diain much as it is ,-crvinn as il does, ||,e nation in capacities other Hum the one in rel-ition lo the Act which established il. 'i. The floaling of foreign loans fi>r «•;.,• purposes should be prohibited. •'>'. Americans should be prohibited from traveling on Mligerent ships or .'it least given notice thai thcv are traveling at their own risks.

Scii:tUir from N<irtli Dakota Written Exclusively for NEA Service Repeal of the arms embargo is nothing more, nothing lew, than the Eastern path to ibe Western Front. If only people would learn and kniw arid reir-ember the lessons of the last 2.~> years, there would be immediate readiness to understand why there slu'iiKI be violent opposition to any niui-f Inokinr; to the repeal of the arms embargo in the present neutrality act. People are asking; What possible danger can there be in letting war sup plies be sold to a nation at war so long ;..s those who buy pr.y their cash fur it. .-aid come and gel it and carry it away at their own risk? Is there nut a.s great security for the United Stales in a cash and carry plan as t'uvi,- is in an outright, embargo against the t.xporation of war .supplies? What is tin difference, if any? There is an answer to the i|iicstion that the record of past experience will substantiate. The answer is this: The difference is the difference between peace and war for the United .States. The coming of the World War found the United States fortifying its determination to stay out of it through n ja.-blicy pronounced neutrality policy laid down by President Wilson. Tnal policy in about so many words declared that while it would" not be, considered unnculral for Americans | to sclle munitions to belligerents so • long as- we sold to both sides alike, it would be considered nuueutral for Americans to loan money to nations at war. What happened to and under this policy? Look to the record of know fact: Allied Hankers 1'ut on Pressure Franco and England found it difficult to finance their growing purchases in the United States. Their purchases were affording us a war boom that we came to relish. Any threat of the loss of this trade became serious concern to us. England and France knew it. Through their American representatives, .7. P. Morgan & Co., France and England pleaded for American credit. The Morgans said American bankers' were prepared to underwrite these credit, needs. Our neutrality policy forbid loan.s The. bankers insisted that credits and loans were not, the same thing. Pressure was applied daily. The President finally gave in and allowed the bankers to provide the Allied credit needs, but cautioned against letting it. be understood that he, Wilson, had changed his neutrality policy. Soon it was found that there was a limit to banker's- credit, that unless' a wider field to finance Fi'ancc and England were found \ve were going to lose their war trade. Another panic was in prospect. At once the foreign agent.s aided considerably by our officials went to work on Wilson again. Again under pressure the President was made to give ground and, while caniioiiiii" his cabinet officer against pulling il in writting. he did authorize him orally to convey to the interested hankers the information that if they lloaied Allied bond issues in Ibe United States nothing would lie done al'oul il . I'.remimic |li B Stick Wiclilt-il Ky British Tin- fiuth i.s that we let. our , ; vinev- ican economic systems become dc- prdent upon the war trade which Ibe Allies would give us.

Britain and France, Ihc prime minister told a wildly cheering House of Commons, will not yield to what he termed a "scarcely vicld threat" ui Soviet-German collaboration. "No threat ever will induce this country to abandon ihe purpose "for which we have entered upon this struggle,' 1 he said. The prime minister's speech retorted to the German-Russian agreement which partitioned Poland and made a peace gesture in which the alternative was a Nazi-Soviet "conciliation." Chamberlain deckared "no mere assurance" fvomthe German government could be accented because that government "loo often in the past have proved their undertakings are worthless when it suits them they should be broken." Nobody wants war ''for one unnecessary day," he asserted, adding that the British and French people, however, were "determined to secure in a rule in which violence shall cease, and in which ihe word of governments—once pledged — must. htncefoith be kept."Chamberlain bitterly ass-ailed U\o Russian-German statement that if the Western powers refused peace offers they must bear the war guilt.
