Rejection of Wallgren Not on Partisan Basis of businesi and industry. Harry Truman's loyalty to his friends is admirable. But Hie first loyalty of the President of the United States must be to liis country, This carries with it .among other tilings, an obligation to seek the most capable men for the government's most important appointive jobs. Oddities and Ant-ics A phychologisl who has been studying ants for years believes that some oddities of human behavior can be partly explained when the patterns of behavior in ant society is better understood. \Ve shall look forward to his explanation of the common and .simultaneous enthusiasm of humanity and anlhood for picnics. 'EtTu, Brute?" VIEWS OF OTHERS There was no sign of Democratic political vengeance when the Senate Armed Services Committee refused lo confirm the President's nomination of Mon C. Wallgren to head the National Resources Board. Three of the six party members who voted to uphold his choice were filibustering Southerners who ar« hopping mad at the President's civil rights program. Pati'isan was surely present in the^ solid Republican vole against Mr. Wallgren. But. there also must have been some agreement with Mr. Byrd's assertion that the post "should be filled by the most competent and capable man available without regard to past services or personal friendship." Mor« than once Mr. Truman has said, in effect, that there are a million men in tha United States better qualified to have the job. Many Americans who disagree with the President's unpretentious estimate of his abilities will admire the candor and modesty of hi* statement. But candor and modesty are only two of his conspicuous qualities. Another is his intense loyalty to his friends and his gratitude for "past services." This has aroused a suspicion that, in some of his appointments, there seem to be a million men in the country better qualified than his choice, but that his friend happens to be the man he wants for the job. If Mr. \VaHgrcn's noniiiiHtion had won Senate confirmation, Ihe familiar criticism of "government by crony" would have been revived. For the chairmanship of the National Security Resources Board is rerttunly one of the most importanl jobs in government. The man who gets it will be the President's chief adviser on mobili/.a- lion of industry and manpower in the event of war. He will be responsible for a plan to adjust our economy to wartime conditions, to integrate civilian and military preparations, lo stockpile strategic and critical materials, to relocate industries and government activities if necessary, and otherwise to gear our whole national life lo a tempo of all-out effort. Mr. Wallgren's qualifications included 25 years in the relail jewelry and op- lical business, eight years in the House, four in the Senate, and one term as governor of Washington. He also was a champion billiard player. Mr. Truman met him while bolh svere senators, and apparently found him a genial companion and a good story teller. When he failed lo be re-elected governor last fall, Mr. Wallgren moved to Washington, apparently hopeful of * job. He will probably get one. But the Senate can scarcely be blamed for questioning his ability to fill the job that Mr. Truman picked for him. Someone • • with more promising experience can ccr- • Uinly be founiT'among the top figures Churchmen vs. Communism Communist action against Protestant leaders in Bulgaria has produced a |nr less violent reaction In the United Stales lhan did the parallel trial of Cardinal Mlndszcnty in Hungary. We are grateful that much less ol the sensationalism that produces un-Chrlstlan hate has been evoked by the neccmd case But should there not be MI equal amount of public sympathy and official protest? And should not both cases produce lomethlnif more—a deeper heart searching for more effective answers to communism? In neither trial were the churchmen allowed to appear «> true successor! of the Christian martyrs. Was their abject self-condemnation Induced by terrorism worse than drugs? Or by hopes of saving others? We who are free from such tyranny cannot In conscience attempt to «ay what the accuser! should have done. But we •timild be Attempting to understand better what imneln the' Communist attack and to improve the defense of Christendom »s a whole. Tlie most obvious cause of Ihe Red persecution of churchmen Is the fact that the totalitarian state cannot, tolerate less than total allegiance. It centers first of all on any competing organization, particularly If it displays political power. In Hungary the Red government had been battling for months with the Roman Catholic Church over control or the schools, and It bad felt the pressure which the International power of the Vatican can exert. In Bulgaria Hie ministers most denounced wer. Ihose having organizational relations with Protestants In other countries. Secondly, Communists quite understandably at- . tack churchmen who practice a genuine religion which fundamentally rebukes and destroys the false "religion" or Marxism, Mosrow Inks a rrank- ly antireligious view. And clearly there Is a basic ' antipathy between its submergence of the Individual and Jesus' teaching that the "kingdom of God is within you." Non-Communists too often fall Into materialism and tyranny, but they rio not make K religion or those evils. Surely it Is when ?nnrchinen arc combating those evils that Ihey aie on the soundest ground —against communi.sin or any oilier system that promotes them. Histsry tells us plainly that political activities by churches detract from their true religions function and lay them open to political attack. Churches which are authoritarian In their own organization and methods arc particularly vulnerable to political dictatorship; they accustom the people to acceptance of arbitrary rule. And cliurciimen who lose Uio common touch tend to become (le/endcrs of place and privilege against social reforms. Thus American churches supported slavery as late us 1830, and today clericalism cloaks widespread injustices. Communism makes its. broad appeal to those who think it will bring more jus- lice and equality of opportunity. But Its tyranny and materialism are reactionary, not revolutionary. It can have little ..access against churchmen who prove their faith in spiritual power by their works. Not by preaching hale but by living love will this victory be won. Not by material organization but by the revolutionary power of spiritual truth expressed in regenerated Individuals will the wrongs tu social, economic, and political institutions be righted and humanity's hunger satisticd. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. SO THEY SAY y oles in Warsaw Giving British,} U.S. Officials Social Brush-Off Atlantic Union Committees Proposal Due To Bring Strong Protest From Isolationists By refer Edson NKA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON. <NEA) — Ex-Supreme Court Justice Owen J. Roberts' newly announced "Atlantic Union Committee for a Federal Convention or Democracies" will probably meet with considerable opposition trom isolationists and old America Firstcrs. What the Roberts Committee seeks ultimately is a central government for world democracies within the United Nations. This new world government would have a single citizenship, with Its own legislative, executive and Judicial systems, 1U own defense forces, money, customs and postal systems. H will be argued that if the so- odd countries or the world cannot now run a successful United Nations miranization. It Is hopeless to expect that they could get along under B central government as a fcde- rnl union of states. But this very Idea has been growing for a long time and "We reel that now is the crltcial time to launch this movement for B federal union of nations that sign the Atlantic Pact," says Justice Roberts. "An Idea or this kind can't get any place until it "is a political issue." Justice Roberts continues. "Now, with the text of the Atlantic Pact announced, it is a political Issue. 1 have been committed to this idea for eight years, but I have been holding back on It until people could begin to say 'My senator is for it.' or 'My congressman is against it.' Bnd they could begin nrgulivg about it. That is exactly | The growth of this movement j which Justice Roberts now heads up ns president of the Atlantic Union Committee is Interesting to trace. Ince World War II there have >een a number of similar movements like R. L. Whitehonse's 'World Republic." Robert K. Hutchins "Federal Republic of the World." Cord Meyer Jr.'s "United World Federalists," Ely Culbertson's "Citizens Committee for United Nations Reform," and others. Antedating all these is Clarence K. Streit's "Union Now" and his original proposal for a world "Bill of Human Rights." Both were ttm- sldered somewhat Utopian if not downright crackpot when they were first presented in France in 1938. Strelt for ID years before had been correspondent covering the Len- gue of Nations. He saw first hand the old League's failures and weaknesses. Last year a Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by a majority of the United Nations, and an eminently respectable committee of citizens headed by Justice Roberts, former Secretary of War Robert p. Patterson and former Undersecretary of State Will Clayton have today practically adopted his "Unipn Now." last Jan. 23 Roberts, Patterson and Clayton called their first meet- 1ns at the Wendell Willkie memorial Freedom House In New York. With them were Strelt, Hugh Moore or Americans United for World Or- Kanization.

One of the most amazing and re- oltlng Incidents ot our time is the pectacle of certain people preach- ng and practicing racial and re- prejudice In the name of Jhrlst, And much of this prejudice as been directed against Jews, of 'hlch religion was Jesus himself, nd from whom we received, not nly the riches of the Old Testa- nent, but the records of the New, nd the church itself. When Paul spoke of the Oospel if Christ, he emphasized its uni- 'ersaltty. His mission and mlnls- ry, he Insisted, were to Gentiles s well as to those of his own re- Igion, both to the Greek and to the Few. It was his boast of the Gospel hat It had power to change any man. Was Paul in this a true Interpreter of his Master? Or did Jesus n any way limit His mission, or the icnefits and privileges of the grace of God?

Bolh Americans «n Britishers are getting the brush-ofl from the Poles. Poles not only are not coming parties, cocktail affairs and otha social events organized by men? bers of the American and Britis colonies. Many times they don't even trouble to answer "R.S.V.P." Invi. latlons, The answer to anything the govJ eminent doesn't want to talk about I Is: "We don't know anything about I it. We never heard of It." That Is the reply of the government's official spokesman to any inquiries about the social "cold war." | Those of the American embassy who like to entertain complain that I it is not a question of setting a date and Inviting Polish friends. If the American host hopes to attract a Polish guest the procedure Is to telephone the Pole and ask him to set the date. The government's official spokesman says, however, that no Pole Is | required to get official clearance to attend any Anglo-American affair. Nevertheless, the brush-ofl goes on.

Committee Activity -Expected Soon Within the near future the committee will conduct a drive for membership and for funds to keep up its asilation for a Federal ^Union of Democracies until it becomes an established fact. The Roberts Committee is aiming to achieve this goal by easy stages. It has set no year when It thinks world government can be achiever). First step will be to build up public support for ratification of the North Atlantic Pact. Justice Robert admits that mere discussion of the subject may be all that can be accomplished at this session of Congress. "Whether we could get action this year is still on the knees of the gods,'* he says. There will be many charges that this proposal will make America -surrender her sovereignty. "Tlie United States can't yield any of its sovereignty." says Justice Roberts. "We would have to amend our Constitution before we could yield sovereignty. And anything the first conference of nations might recommend R'autd have to be sent back to the people for ratification. "Even if this conference should decide that a federal union could not be formed at this time, there would be a gain in having the United States take the Jead In ask- dis- out insight and imagination, is that of Jesus and the Syropheniclan woman, in Mark 25-30. This troubled Grecian woman had brought her demented daughter to Jesus, beseeching Him to heal her. Jesus had retired to a house, hoping for privacy and rest, but the woman heard of His being there, and was persistent in her effort to see Him.. Her importunity must have impressed Him, but evidently to test her faith He put in her way stumbling blocks that seemed harsh, and even cruel. Voicing the common religious and racial ' prejudice. He said, in effect. "Do you ask this of Me, « Jew? It is not meet to take the children's bread and give It unto dogs." But He was voicing, not His own thought, but the sort of thing that racial and religious prejudice things and says, for He was about to bless the woman and her daughter. Had we been mere, we would undoubtedly have seen the look in His eye. and observed the manner that belled the seeming harshness of His words. And He drew from the woman the reply that pleased Him. Dogs must bs fed. Human need transcends prejudices. So the incident, and the healing, actually rebuked those who would have turned the woman away. There is no place for racial or religious Christ prejudice in any ^phase of or His Gospel. Louis Watson's table. Usually i^o was fairly calm and conservative. Perhaps bringing the microphone over to his table confused him bit, because he later said he had no business bidding seven hearts to- days hand. Even after winning the first trick tache. has been waiting since last | August for an official meeting. American Ambassador Waldeinar I J. Gallman invited representatives of the entire Polish press to a "get- together" cocktail party at his home. A half-dozen came of the. 60 | or more invited. The U. .S. Information Service I asked students and professors of political science—74 of them—to see | film on how American eleciion machinery works. Only seven showed up. and they were not impressed. I The social "freeze" Is not confined to the Poles. Sadly lacking are con- tacks with the personnel of the Hussion and other embassies of the "peoples democracies." Necessary official business Is conducted in a suspicious, chilly atmosphere. The social "cold war" obviously I Is an outgrowth of the strained International situation. No one doubts or a moment that all this would be hanged if Generalissimo Stalin •ere to announce that permanent icace is here and relations with the Jnited States were just dandy. Poles seem to believe cverythin hey hear from their press, radio ' nd government chiefs. Virtually ivorylhlng they hear Is anti-Amerl:an and anti-British. Stanislaw Radkiewicz. minister for lubllc security, recently fanned higher the Polish feeling of sus- jicion and distrust. He publicly declared that all "reaction" (that means anything or anybody opposed the Communist-led government) at home or abroad Is under the su- )reme command of "the most aggressive imperialistic power—the United States of America."
