Expecting A New War It doesn't make n groat clc;i! of dilTcrcuce whether there is very much truthVin the recent "exposure" of .1 so-called conspiracy by cupitnlislic mi-' tiqns-lo concoct a war against Soviet Russia. One's first impulse is to conclude^ that the Russians were either badly deluded 1 or deliberately concocted a whopper. But that isn't especially important. The... important, thing is that tlie rulers of Russia are in such a frame of mind that they expect some such ^.outbreak of war to take place. Nor 'are they alone in that predicament. .There are rumors and expectations of war in half a dozen European capitals. _ Cabinets are ready to listen to tall talcs and believe them. Distrust and fear .are Europe's dominant emotions. That is a hard thing' for us on this side of the water to j;i'asp. Over here, , a war- can be seen coming a long way off.,' It .takes shape, with considerable deliberation, before our eyes. But Europe lias a different situation. Peace can chango to War almost overnight. The woi'ld is full of subterranean ri- .valries and. hatreds. An unlucky chance—such, for instance, as a pistol shot in an :obscure Balkan town—can bring- trouble,on a, moment's notice. For .that .reason this latest news from; Russia-is extremely disturbing. Plotting a war against the Soviets may' be, and probably'--is, the last thing that the governments'of England and France would undertake;.but the Russian government is perfectly ready 'to believe, in such a. plot—and,.,conversely, the go\ enimeiits of the capitalistic nations almost equally ready to believe such things of Russia, or even of each other. No one needs to be-told that such an atmosphere does . not make for peace. Disarmament conferences arc perfectly silly as long as'that frame of mind prevails. 'No government that expects a war at any moment is going to reduce its army and navy—unless, by some lucky chance, it can horn- swoggle'- its neighbors into making greater > reductions. -. Thus history seems to be preparing to repeat itself. The years that led up to .1914 are being duplicated again. 1 tea'ce 'gets voluble' 'lip service • but nothing/:mpi-e.'Mankind, ^having just failed'to..obliterate itself in one great 'orgy 6C ^Uk'htei 1 , is Belting ready to 'iiiakc.a second, more cfl'ectivc' attempt. ,' It may be that there is a ducp-moy- ' . ing and invisible current 'for peace that is stronger than we think. There is just the possibility that if Europe came again to the verge of war the different governments would hear from their people in unmistakable terms, • and would lind some way out of the •, impending conflict. But there is no evidence to support such a supposition.' Tlio race gives no sign that it learned ' anything in the"lighting that ended '12 years ago. The outlook, then, seems made to • order for the pessimists. The situation overseas is gloomy. Surveying it, one is impelled lo thank providence for the Atlantic ocean, What Patriotism Really Is In mi Ohio town a group of patriotic citizens Celebrated Armistice Day by tossing tear gas bombs into a chain grocery store that had failed to doss; its doors in honor of the holiday. After the ail'air was over, one of the leaders in the mob remarked that ho was very sorry they had- been obliged "to impose patriotism on any American coil; concern.'-' ' •., ',<ifO That remark contains a profound error, which is worth examining. For it so happens'that patriotism is one of those things that can never, by any means, be "imposed" on anyone. If you are patriotic, it is because of something that wells up .within you. No outside agency; can. stulT it into yoii. Yon can't get it through threats or compulsion. That ought lo be self-evident. An intelligent adult is bound to 1'eel just a little bit sorry for any grown man whose mental processes are as childish as those of this ardent, "patriotic" Ohioan. The Windmill Cuba M. Hijftlon.
