TAKING' TALK DOESN'T HURT With Germany, Italy and Japan apparently ready to mak? common cause of their own unrest and to match their power against that which may be arrayed to stop their "civilization" of lesser areas, the democratic nations of the world are "taking" a lot of talk in their effort to piovent war. Soviet Russia, however, is not so mild. Its leaders meet challenge with challenge and boasti with more boasting. Foreign Minister Litvinoff, for example, referring to the fascist challenges to 'peace-loving democratic states," hopes that "before long those slntes will stand up to them." When this happens, the wcrld will have another war because Germany, Italy and Japan will never surrender their dreams and become second rate powers voluntarily.
