He died:in -the ruins of Berlin, • his associates said. Probably it is so. '}•.Thus the civilization- which hc almost I destroyed was cheated of its vengeance. ; Yet the end which overtook him is ncr- ; haps more just and fitting than a trial t bpfere humanity and death ii|X)ii thn • gallows would have been. '-.i^'For-Adolf Hitler, the man, was a ..nincompoop, an insignificant creature • without mental distinction or physical ' gTaiKlciir. A.s a political hypnotist, a.s • (he incarnation of a national depravity, | he was an earth-shaking tyrant who ! scourged thc world with a pack of j bloodthirsty hellions at his heels. But J us a man, he was nothing. i Hitler's sense of the theatrical wcndd » have been offended by his death. It J was" an' 'anti-climax devoid of any dra- | mafic" impact. He, the destroyer, was ; swallowed up and forgotten in the dc\ sti'uction that he created. The dissohr J tion of his country (which he willed) • and the triumph of his enemies (which i he could not prevent) completely over- i shailowecloh" is "personal demise. '. Perhaps they still speak of Adolf J Hitje^ in Germany. ( His name keeps J cropping -up 'at the Nuernberg trials, j where his posthumous role is that of | scapegoat • for his captive hcnchmon. --But elsewhere Adolf Hitler, the man, .."is all but'forgotten, t The name which millions ot" his vic- t tims cursed is seldom spoken. Thc ) death ..for which millions prayed was { reported/ "disbelieved, then gradually acccptifc'^i^JtYiih >.' tiiirdly more than a sigh of relief, the troubled world moved on. But that troubled world cannot for| get Adolf Hitler's legacy. It is like the I lingering complications of an acute ill} ness..- The attack that, caused them has , passed from conscious memory. I 'So''men today arc trying to piece .j together the broken fragments of a • world which Hitler bcriueathcd. They • are largely conscious of thc task at ' hand, "of ' suffering and misery tin| precedented in history, of the difficulty .} of building peace even with the ghast- t— !y souvenir.s of war all about them. And that is Adolf Hitler's triumph. His ghost .still walks the earth. It surveys the ruin which, if he could not have world rule, he desired and decreed. 1'erlwps we should remember more vividly the Adolf Hitler of the plastered forelock, the bulging eyes, the Chaplin mustache, (lie narrow shoulders, and the chubby hips. For if the people of the world and their stales- men do not now create an international atmosphere of peace and contentment and trust, another Adolf Hitler can come forward as the spark which will tout)) off the i.usi tfi-ciit witr.

We hope that the estimate will prove to be incorrect.

A requisitioning of 20 per cent, or even f> per cent, of the butter supply would he ridiculous. Man can live by bread alone, at least for a time, if lie has lo. To tfive the hungry people of (he world enough bread for .survival is the most immodi- ato and pressing problem today. But wheat alone is not bread. Whcitl and water make paste, not food.

WY 1'ETKIl KDSON NKA Washington Orn-siiondt'iil WASHINGTON. April 30. I NBA I —Brlg-.-Gcn. Albeit J. Browning is IcuvitiB his $10.000-a-ycar govern- on I post on May 1. to lake ;l job lying 12 times that, much a.s di- ctor of purchases for the Ford fotor Company. This marks the end of what look- t like a pretty good thing in the epartment of Commerce -the pre- cnce of a practical businessman ho knew both government and in- ustry Inside and out. serving as lircctor of Domestic Commerce and eally trying to do something for usiness besides Issuing a lot of tot-too-useful statistical hunclouls. As General Browning goes ba<:k 3 private industry, he admits rankly lhat relations between bus- nessmen and government were irobably never worse. This bad re- ntlonshir. is based on a number of ntsunderstnnctmgs on both sides. Businessmen, says Hrowning, have he idea that people who inhabit Vnsliingtoii are entirely different. rom people who live in the of the country. Fundamentally, hey aren't. They have thc sain ears, worries, and ambitious. And illy businessman who comes Washington to work for thc government Is not necessarily a Nc Dealer.
