'But It also will mark the beginning of an even create one. Tlie united Nations stand on tin verge of winning the war in Europe. Ahead lies the more enormous task of winning the peace. Victory in the war is almost wholly a military problem. Victory Jn the peace is a complex maze of political, economic and social problems that will lax the ability, ingenuity and patience of our leaders Some of thc'problems have cropped up in the midst of the war. The Polish boundary dispute, the Greek civil war, Italy's cabinet difficulties. But these arc the only samples of the strong undercurrent of new nnd strange forces that will burst upon the world with tremendous complications when the shoolim, stops. Let's try to take a look at the ' prospects for 1945 one at a time. Victory First The first part of the year will be devoted largely to Ihe military job of beating Germany lo her knees. At the same time, there almost certainly will be now attempts on the part of our leaders for a meeting of Die minds on the larger problems that will come up at the peace table. Expert opinion varies on the date of Germany's collapse. It runs from optimistic estimates of early sprlnc to pessimistic estimates of late summer or Cull.- The average seems to he around June. Moreover, there are grave suspicions that Grcmany's collapse may not be sharply defined. That instead, the war may deteriorate toward the end until It finally becomes guerrilla warfare with no formal German surrender, only an Allied announcement that organized resistance has ceased. Whenever it comes, the wheels of the new struggle will start churn- h"i?i ThB.-problems are - mountain ; First, there 'is the job of lifting Germany from her own grave and restoring order ,oiit of chaos. Her factories and mines must be restarted to provide employment and furnish civilian goods. Thousands of leaders must be found lo take over local government under the Allies. A new financial structure must be created. In short, a whole new system or living must be built for the German people. Even thai will.only be scratching the surface A multitude of other problems such as who owns what in Germany and what stolen loot must be returned to other nations, will not lie settled for many ycars after the war Territory To Be Claimed While this is going on, the voices of millions of Europeans will be clamoring for attention. There is great danger of an epidemic revolutions in the little countries Romania has claims against Hu; gai'y. Hungary wants n chunk of Bulgaria. The Bulgarians demand a slice ot Greece!'Czechoslovakia po- innd, Belgium, Holland, and France may lay claim to German soil. Spain may toss out Franco." Many other- peoples may rebel n°ainst their leaders and demand vast changes in government. Communism versus Capitalism faces its greatest political test. There's the problem of tremendous reconstruction in a wrecked world. The reconstltution of a shattered economy on a whole continent. Not lo mention the job of untangling the social snarl the Germans inflicted by dislocating 20 million human beings in the con- QUcrcd countries. ,, For America, the job may be even more ticklish, Europe has been wrecked and can start rebuilding from scratch. But America must Interrupt the most tremendous wartime economy that ever existed nnd shift over to partial peacetime economy without causing excessive disturbance. Without throwing millions out of work, without nose- diving into a depression. We'll still have a war to fight in the Pacific. We must keep n hand in the re-establishment of Europe. And at the same time, we must set in motion the vast wheels of re- conversion. More government controls than ever may be r.ccessarv to avoid an internal breakdown in "this country. None of these problems can wait. They are only the overall tasks lhat our leaders must tackle. Multitudes of lesser ones, nil fitting into the same pattern of a changing world, will rise to plague the arbiters. The forces of world change dammed up through five years of war, will break like a flood. And the world will change. For better or for worse, depends on the forsightcdness of the men who mould Ihe changes. Tlie building and equipping of a big battleship requires 100,000 tons of ingots.
