And indeed he is right. Such a meeting is the best and perhaps the only hope of (he drift away from intenia- ';' iJoiial co-operation. : .'.-Relations among the three powers Have deteriorated alarmingly since the ljoosevelt-Chur:hill-Stalin meeting in Tehran. Much has been clone that cannot be undone,. And a, feeling of dis- ccuragemcnt has settled upon the American and British people as'the in- hiring promises of. the Atlantic Chartor have been pushed aside by the emei'giiig (wt-poWer 'domination 'of E. urbpe. • '.'•••• I Mr. Churchill complained that the altitude of the United Stales', in the Polish dispute bad not been 1 precisely defined. But surely neither 'he nor Mr. . Stalin could be ignoraUc of this cotin- Iry's basic altitude. It is' foiind in the Atlantic Charter, which renounces tcr- •ritoi-ial aggrandisement by the signatory imlions.nnd affirms the right of a people to 'select their, own-form of . government. , The people of; Europe still look toward the United .Stales 'hii'd its President for leadership, and they may have • been puzzled by Mr..Roosevelt's recent :•-. Eile'ncf.. But:\vhat. coul-J he say? To have 'a!:en sides in Ihc Polish or Greek disputes would have been to threaten Allied military unify and to retard or. je'Cpaidize victory over Germany. So we have kept hands off in these disputes, for any hand we had in the matter would have, to . be -backed by , some'force.. And what-force could we • use? We could,;not hold back our military effort in a war .which is ours 'as 1 ." our Allies' And •.certainly we could not threaten a curtailment of post war-trade or assistance. Such a. course would be impossible for the practical reason that world peace requires economic health. We : coukKnot with .logic, or .decency hold clown 'Britain or :Ru.ssia' or China and : expect thus to achieve stability. We should be, committed to a course of rrmtd isolationism that would surround iis with hostility and doom all hope of international co-operation. ; The great difficulty is thai (he whole idea of world peace organization was really based on nothing more tangible than good will. II must have good _ is to exist and develop. And 1 once, a government has, abandoned the honest,''ethical desire to sacrifice some individual gain for the common good, it cannot be compelled to recapture that desire. Threats of force or sanctions would doom the very goal of world peace toward which this country is striving. No, wJial is needed is a change of heart in the Russian and Hrilish governments. Perhaps Mr. Roosevelt's prestige ««<! persunsivenesii, backed by (he will of the American people, will help to bring about that change when the "big three" meet ajffiiu. To try to accomplish this is perhaps the gravest task of Mr. Roosevelt's career. To succeed would certainly be his greatest triumph. All Aboard The Interior Department his informed (he i'orward-loolunjj president of (ho U. 8.

After ihat, ;i few trips by the Nippon Express, the Gauleiter Limited, and the Gestapo Special and this might be quite a pleasant world again. Only we should probably fir.-it check on the other t-iib of the moon to see that there arc no inhabitants.

And llijc Roman asked his brutal question. "Who is the child?" "lie is my son)" she answered, and her voice was steady despite her fear. His response brought the bright blood lo her cheeks as vivid as where his fingers tightened upon her arm. "Thy child? Who is his father?" She had guessed his identity now and she answered valiantly. TJosl thou not know that Ihou art trespassing? Even a Roman must know that it is not safe to insult a wife in her own home." "Who is the child?" he demanded again. The child was clinging to her she put her free arm about him and lifted him "against her shoulder, hiding his face there. The son of my husband and myself," she said. "Thou art a lovely liar," he said roughly. "Nay," she said proudly, "i am not so. I do not follow Ihe Roman practice." jle repeated his charge with unhurried assurance. "Thou art a lovely liar.
