But if it does,- it is just as well for the world to remember that'there is •not the faintest excuse for this hap pening. 'The means of'a peaceful Danzig settlement are at hand. Danzig is an artificial political creation of the Versailles Treaty, whose administration is in the hands-of the League of Nations. vThe league's commissioner, Dr. Karl Burckhardt, is on hand in that city. < He'is a Swiss, and therefore neutral in the Danzig controversy. lie is a scholarly man, devoted to peace and justice. > Let it be granted that the league is not wliat it. ought to be, nor even what it wa?.. Lot it >•:> granted that Germany is no longer a member of the league, and therefore no longer bound by 'it. Nevertheless, not enough is being said about the fact that the Danzig situation can be peaceably settled. If it is"not,-it will be because somebody doesn't want to settle it peaceably. •Both Germany and Poland have " claims in Danzig. The Germans have a claim to the city based on the fact thni.most of its people are German ' and presumably would like to come under,'the German system. The Poles . have a claim based on the fact -that ..theircountry must have free access to the' ; Baltic. Very'well. Are these claims mutual\ ly 'exclusive? Is-there no .claim in 'which Germany .could •have 1 ' Danzig, yet Poland be assured of a free outlet to the Baltic for. its growing commerce? 'there must be such a way, given-the merest shred of the,will to find it. : The Poles have developed their own port city ' of Gdynia on the Baltic. What they need is assurance of the use.'of.that port, equal assurance with Germany that they can use the Vistula basin which runs up through the neu- trp.'!z°.d corridor to the open Baltic p ,t ? £-.- i ">H'is '•••pf1' l> . Tl'p Poles have -•- > / -> • T' V ~d Danzig any- 1 way, as a shipping point. Germany 'claims it wishes only to restore Germans to the Reich. What a silly thing to have a world war 'about! Here are two neighbor'ria- tio'ns at .daggers drawn over the kind of question that sensible, sane men are, settling every day all over the world. And here a neutral referee is ready, willing, and anxious to co-oper- ate in finding a solution which will give ' each party most' of what he wants, Failure lo make use of the league commissioner on Ihe spot at Danzig will show the world, that what is desired te not just solution, but 1 an excuse for doing something else that has nothing lo do with Ihe actual needier, rights of the parties involved: Short Waves ''aid S< n>e- The great tOO : ,wall short-wave radio station at _Scheneetady for broadcasting to South America is ready. 1 The United States^ enters this game, late, but it has the'advantage of the experience of European governments which have been for several years blanketing South'America with radio'pro- ' i" "i< grains. . . V.. This is what has been learned: SoulH Americans are smart. Like /Harmel, when the wind is southerly they know a hawk from a handsaw. The German ;md Italian radio propaganda has backfired badly. Outright propaganda, biased news, hatred of others, envy and deliberate falsification, have made a' radio diet on which South Americana first gagged, then choked, and finally sickened. , ( use the American radio facilities can find will be in disseminating good music, cultural material, and news that is straight,, true, and later upheld by events. The good will that will result from that will far outmatch any propaganda. SIDE GLANCES by CaJbralth r copft. H3Q sy KFASEHVICE. me. T. M. BECLu. s. PAT.
