Before the war they seemed to be insisting through the Neutrality Act that there could be no question in Europe which need concern them. Afterward, when Yugoslavia, Greece and Russia were girding themselves to resist the Nazis, American sentiment and American promises of Lend-Lease urgently intervened to encourage resistance. So even in 1941 and before Americans were ready to take military action, their political interest in Europe in peace was clearly disclosed. But they find a policy on Poland especially difficult to arrive at. There is the1 memory that Poland was the country initially attacked and the fact that the bulk of the great body of Poles in the United States either fear Russia or follow the Roman Catholic Church's active campaign against Communism. There has been also a tendency to accept the Polish Government in exile as the Government of Poland natural enough when London and Wash-1 i Maud and of course Conrad had CHAPTER TWENTY M:itiJ wiia theru. too. little an dined together.

After a while they sent for Peter Huber who came into the room and sat down not far from me. He had told Craig, I imagined, as much as could be told. He sighed a little, unconsciously, as he sat down, lighted a cigarette, and listened. As we all listened. Presently they questioned him or rather recapitulated some earlier questioning. When ()e earns downstairs he had found both nurses in the library, was that riffht? Yes, that was right; he nodded. Why had he come downstairs at all? MI told you that I'd dropped off to sleep, reading. J hadn't put up the windows or turned olf the light and, when I awoke, the room was too warm. I put up the windows and turned oir the light and then I opened the door to the hall, thinking I'd get air into the room more quickly that way." As lie did it he heard a kind of scream from somewhere downstairs. He'd listened for a moment and as he was closing the door again I had run along the corridor and down the stairs. So he thought something was wrong, went bck to get a dressing gown and slippers, and had come down after me. "Mr. Huber." urged the District Attorney, "I want you to think hack carefully; this is very Important! When you came into tbe room, were the nurses either or both of them doing anything fur Mr. Bkcnt? I mean, definitely, did either of them have a hypodermic syringe In her hand T Think back. ..." My heart came up in my throetj I didn't dare look at Drue. Then Peter said, positively, "No." "Are you sure 7" "Absolutely. They wers Just standing there. We looked at him but he was dead. So Miss Keatf sent Miss Cable back upstairs to Craig, and me to telephone. I didn't I accompaniud by Wilinlfred May- I had walked to the Chivery cottage, down, please, Nurse Keate.

Too often, in fact, they have simply thought everything would be all right once the war was won. Now they have to face the question of how they are going to participate in the peace not merely in some general peace organization along the lines of Dumbarton Oaks, but in the day-to-day political adjustments required. Russia is plainly insisting on settling the Polish question by force of her own arms. And Mr. Churchill see nothing to be done about it. There certainly was nothing sacred about the prewar Polish boundary, fixed by Polish force of arms in 1921. The Curzon Line would probably be fairer, although the cities of Vilna and Lwow are clearly Polish. The plans for compensating Poland with German territory are more questionable, but if achieved by resettlement of Germans might afford a sounder basis for peace. Most Americans will wish Washington to use every means of moral suasion possible to persuade Russia to permit some moderating participation in the settlement. Will they be ready also to back up and continue to back up any guarantees the United Nations may offer Russia as an alternative to her single-handed search for security? It has been proved by the war to be linked to American security. The most useful question for Americans is not, "What about Russia in Poland?" but "What about America in the on a lounge coat and, apparently, gone directly into the library.
