Roosevelt, tjae' birth of the United Nations, the end of Mussolini, and the passing of Hitler. Now eonies another, the first anniversary of the death of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich and of tho rebirth of peace in Europe. , : ;.' Since May 8, 1045, there has been little time for retrospect. America fc'rid her Allies have fought Ihc war with Japan to its victorious conclusion, and with'the'ertd'of war, America and the rest of ,'th'4"'.world have turned thought and eiftrjry' homeward to urgent domestic problems, and forward to the more urgent universal problem of maintaining j>eace. v Since we have lived from day to day, it is little wonder that to many of iis V-E Day may seem a date whose distance cannot be measured in time. The memories of the final mighty onslaught of Allied arms and of the final disintegration of I fitter's super-state are remote. The emotions which greeted these historic events have long si net' subsided. If we have forgotten much, il is equally certain that few Americans paiised, in the midst of celebration :t year'tVgo today, to wonder where the newly liberated iCtiropc would be on May : 8, 1946. Yet if they had, there wore and obvious predictions that couid liuve been made, and that have, come to puss. ' It was inevitable that Europe would be hungry, ' ih-cM'l, and ill-sheltered; that thousands upon thousands would be displaced and' homeless; that political unrest would abound; that the neglect of fields and fai'rhs, factories and'transportation,'would bring a IOUK period of painful convalescence 'after Europe's 'almost fatal illness. Hut what could not have been foreseen was the almost complete of 'that' unity "of 'Spirit and purpose'' among the great powers which matte V-E' Day' 'possible, 'the 'nund of unity was learned llifough' 'blrt'od and pain and .sacrifice. T)ie 'triumph of that unity was'haileci and coh.sccrated in noble, heartfelt words at the hour of victory. It was incredible thut the need or the triumph could be forgotten. Yet today nationalism, with all its old pride and a'mbition aiitl testy self- sufficiency, confuses the efforts for united peace. The great powers that liberated Europe' are bitter and contentious. And what of the vanquished '! The misdeeds of all but a few German leaders seem to be condoned or forgotten. To the victorious Allies, the ruin of Germany is a political asset to be courted, rather llian a notorious troublemaker to be disarmed, guarded, ami re-educated over a long: .period of heavy responsibility. To move than a third of American occupation troops, "the clean, honest, industrious Germans" are their favorite ICiiropen people. But if the prospect on "V-K plus UG5" is somber, it is not hopless. Victory in Europe was won by Ihe united efforts of miltons of. ordinary people, guided and directed by a few, but only after painful struggles and reverses, Today, millions of ordinary people are united for peace. There will be more struggles and reverses before the few who guide and direct are similarly united. But here, too, the millions may hope and work for eventual victory. It's a Long Road That Has No Turning BY KRSKINC JOHNSON i NBA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, May 8. INEA) — Hollywood's ' social caste system akes It on the chin lortay, with a : petite blonde throwing the ptin- •hes. The brave lady who rlpued. Hie novlelown from sound stage to joudolr was Ilona Massey, an intimate observer of the Hollywood scene for almost 10 years. "Hollywood." ilona told us, "Is like a masquerade party where no one ever takes off his mask." Bui that was just her opening shot. Head on. Hollywood, and start blushing. "If a movie queen wnnls to buy a moiisetra|) v she can't Just i;o to the ten-cent store and buy one. It would ruin her social standing She has to order A gold-plated mousetrap from a swank Bcverb Hills store. And Uicn, when slu Bets, home, she has to put on a hunting costume to set it." SEATING BY SALARY Iloua lias been to a lot of private dinner parties. "Where you sit at the table, 1 she suid, "depends on what you .salary is or what the New Yoi'r critics said about your last pic ture." You see a lot of stags at Holly •wood parties and night dubs. Ilonr had a simple explanation: "A Hoi lywood bachelor 'doesn't BO with Blrl because he likes her. He f!«e with someone who will raise hi social standing. There aren't unougl 'important' Birls to BO around Dial's why you see so many stags." Everyone in Hollywood cails everyone else "darling." It reached a new high Ilona said, when a big feminine star told her;. "Dar- ng, I hate you," Hollywood can't talk aboul any- hing except. Hollywood. Ilona told s, shuddering-: "You sit on the set nd talk about pictures. You ?o ul to dinner and talk about pic- fcircs, you talk about pictures af- er dinner and you talk about pie- mes on the way home. And when lollywoodites aren't talking about ilcUircs, they're talking about hemselvcs." DASTK SYSTEM FOR CARS A certain Hollywood nightclub •veil has a social system for aulo- nobiles, Ilona said. "If you are a star, they park your car up In the "ronl row. If you are a nobody, they >.irk it on the street a block away." When there's a divorce in a Hollywood family, the social system requires that you part "the best of frlcnoA." Ilona said she »'is juilty of that one when she divorced Allan 'Curtis. "Only with me," Ehe said, "it \vas on the level." "You have to niake a s|>ectacu- lar entrance wherever you go." That is one of Ilorm's pet annoyances about Hollywood. You don't just go to lunch or dinner. "You have to be paged on the telephone at least three times. Three phone calls, is par for a luncheon or dinner engagement, otherwise, it is not a success." "Am! even if you love beer," Ilona said, sadly, "you have to drink champagne. The Hollywood social standards demand it." " WASHINGTON COLUMN How Many Unemployed?

There Is lot of official and unofficial guessing as lo how many there art, why they are, and whether the situation is going to get worse or better, tint when it comes to pin- nins down fuels, the figures :it variance, and about all that can be reported lire a number of trendy which indicate a terrific aniouht o milling around, a concentrated effort to Bet settled. The Bureau of Labor Statistics ollccts figure.-; on ttye number o •orkers employed in nou-rtgvicut- ural industries, denting with wn- s nnd hours, quit rates, and labor mover. Proprietoi's, the self-em- jloycrt, mul 'domestic servants, are excluded from these figures. The Department of Agriculture collects from its crop reporters' eS- Umnlcs on tho number of farm workers nnd their wages. Unemployment figures come from three sources. The Bureau of the Census runs a sample survey oil lh c number of unemployed and thi- size of the labor force, month by month. Its figure.-} nrc not obtain- I'd by counting noses, howevev, but by n check on 25,000 families in l>8 sample ureas covering 125 counties. Uul when you consider that there ure nljout 40 million families scattered over IIOOO comities of the UnU- cct states, you can sec that only a little over one-half of one per cent ot the population Is counted, and I hat the multiplying factor is pretty big. OFFICIAL SOURCES IJIFFER WTOEI.Y ON ESTIMATES ,Using ih c Bureau of Cen-sus figures, March returns show 2,700,000 unemployed in :i labor, force of i>5,0130.000. buth totals conslltutiuis new highs since V-J Dfty. The other two sources of unemployment figures are the Social Security Board and the Veterans' bureau". Th c Social Security Boiirri coUet'ts figures from stiile unemployment insurance benefit pny- ments. They show :x March average of 1,573,000 unemployed collecting job insurace. The Veterans' Bureau pays out unemployment insurance under the GI JBI11 of Rights to ex-soldiers nnd * sailors unable to find work. At the end of March, 1,704.250 vets were on Us rolls.
