DOES nuci; SKK LESSON IN' NOinVAY? These seas are narrower even than the northern seas, where British sea power has just been largely stymied by German airpowcr, shore- based. This will be (he deciding factor lhal lakes Mussolini lo war, if to war he goes. For. what German airpower could do in the north, Italian airpower may hope to do in the south. Here, loo. the Franco-British must have expeditionary forces by water within reach of bombers operating Iroin laud bases. And the Italian mili- lary air force is one'of the best it: Europe, ^ind one of the biggest. To be'sure, the allies, can counter lightning Italian blows by bombs on the Dodecanese, on Pautcllcria. even \vilh shells on Ilaly — if their baUleships get close enough. Their btn'iy blow is blockade—but it may never be struck. Thai, Mussolini may think, is the lesson of Norway. late newspaper "The Christian Mo- bilizer" received advertising from sources largely German. Most of the income of the Mobil- izcrs comes from their 75,000 members, McWilliams asserts, though lie says occasional large checks drill in from rich men,. especially alter some particularly bilter allnch on the New Deal. The Mobili/.ers have generally -beci) considered (he "action arm of the Christian Front movement, though both are so loosely organiwd that the relationships, if any, are hard (o pin down. Though Father Coughlin has carefully qualified his relationships to both, they cleave closely to Father Coughlin. As to McWilliams 1 positive program, congressional investigators arc likely (o find a recipe somewhat as follows: take one part socialism, one part forced investment of idle capital, technocracy, and Town- sendisin. mix thoroughly witli anti- Semitism and Anglophobia, and serve. This recipe is to be .served. McWilliams insists, only in a ballot- box. Yet Ihc close connections between the r.."obilizcrs and the Front suggest forcible feeding. McWilliams studied oratory. Yoga, and Communism lo fit hi'iuscll for his present "kampf." He has fife mm wuffa CIVIC worked at many jobs, from farming in Oklahoma lo selling stockings. At public meetings he affects a background of UUIcrian banners bearing a device strongly .suggesting the Ku Klu\> Klan, though he denies any iroiuicrtloi). His trim, erect figure is surrounded by a bodyguard which never neglects to lead the applause as he proclaims sentiments like this: "America can never be without a leader as long as there is a copy of 'Mc-in Kampf."

(he Mobill/ers have actively sought iiieiubers among the New York police department, but McWilllums denies lhat he plans any Trojan horseplay or Fifth Columning. "The real 'Fifth Column'," he says, "is trying to get us into a war that does not concern our national interests. Should such a war come, Me- Williams insists, he would be first lo volunteer. But afterward—when America counts the cost—will come the chance for the Nationalist Revolution. "That is so sure." he insists, "that some of our members think we should slop agilaline aeainst this country entering the war. Maybe they're right, for after the war . .."
